Mr. Truman told a White House news conference yesterday he lias made a decision but is keeping It to himself.

The most intensive investigation ever launched into the mystery ia now underway. Officer!! have reported -certain progress in the :asc. Reasons for such importance being attached to the dentil of n little-known waitress are many :nd varied. First, Cricket was n victim of her environment. The night she met death Rht! was Just IS years old. Yet for years sho was allowed free access to cocktail lounges and saloons. She Ambled frequently on .slot machines and dice tables scattered about town. Ami she hiMl, on occasion, tarn fin , dulcs, .with,.prominent ntntd Her death caused a'clean-up in gambling, politics, ami drinking placet. Second, from the days of early- time western sheriffs' of this county to. the time of Cricket's death, the public was never allowed to know whaU was going on .in law enforcement circles -- even though the public nnid the bills. Cricket's death changed nil that. News reporters began to dig into unkcpt courthouse records. They started to question possible witnesses. They observed events on the scone " i n connection with in* vcstlgaUon. And they combatted the "no comment" of officials who covered facts to hide their own shortcomings and inefficiency.
