Woman Bares Secrets of Love “Bazaar" and Tells How Girls,
Between 15 and 19, Were Card Indexed
to Await Wealthy Patrons
(By AI.Kfi ALDEN.)
Hollywood. Calif. -Youth for sale,
beauty at bargain rates, wealthy
patrons putting in an order for a
lovely little blonde to add lustre to
I an evening’s entertainment. These
{are the highlights of the story of a
I hideous trafficking In young girls
| that has Just been disclosed with the
l arrest of the principal figures in
Hollywood’s love bursar.
Ciirls of School Age.
Details of the medium whereby
beautiful girls could be ordered for
an evening's entertainment—and no
questions asked, were whusperad
about In Hollywood and Its environs
for some time, but the film colony
Ls reputed to be shocked at the rev
elations of the far-flung operations
and ramifications of the girl empor
ium where elderly millionaires could
buy the attentions of girls of school
age. Mrs! Olive Clark Day, one of
the three arrested and arraigned on
these hideous charges, asserted that
her stock, which was carefully card
Indexed and classified, was recruit
ed from pick-ups In the street, pick
ups that were always young, fresh
and pretty. ,
Arrested with Mrs. Day are her
common-law husband, William Jo
belmann. and John P, Mills, weulthy
real estate operator,’Numerous girls,
including Alice Blake, told the dis
trict attorney of the activities of
Mrs. Day's "love market."
$20 The Price.
Two hundred dollars for youth
and beauty. That was the standard
price of the wares at the love-mart.
The glrlr. received approximately $20
each out of this. Twenty dollars In
exchange for all that girlhood holds
dear. No wonder Mrs. Day constant
ly reiterated to her girls that noth
ing was wrong, only thinking makes
It so! And what of the patrons, the
elderly men of wealth who made the
business so profitable by their In
satiable demand.;? One of them kept
a regular order for u. new girl eueh
week an dothers were noted for fre
quent re-orders. Many of them are
known to be hiding from the au
thorities but It is believed that sen
sational revelations will be forth
coming when several millionaires art
arrested and confronted with their
Dazzrd By lights.
Surely the love syndicate could
have selected no better location than
Hollywood for their nefarious traf

Is also replete with sharp.ugiy
Still They Come.
And so, they pass, this unique ar
ray of beauties, easy prey for love
syndicates and others who traffic in
tender, young loveliness. For despite
constant wan tings by the chamber
of commerce and other civic bodies
as well as welfare societies, each
train continues to deposit its cargo
of beauty at the film center. Some
are plentifuly supplied with funds,
others have but a few dollars after
they arrive. But ail are confident of
quick success or at least work as ex
tras almost at once. And then come
the weeks of making the rounds of
carting directors and agencies, where
to their amazement, these girls meet
other beauties, exquisite girls, who
haven't worked steadily in months.
Often Oo Hungry. ..
Some of the girls are sensible.
They take work in stores, in offices,
in restaurants, glad to do jobs that
they would never have thought of
doing back home. But others hang
on, clutching at each shadowy hope
and promise, certain that they will
succeed. They often go hungry, ihus
making them easy prey to the
stranger who talks to them so sym
pathetically while he stakes them to
a good meal. With money gone, hope
gone, clothes shabby, dark despair
enveloping these beautiful creatures,
it is not difficult to see how love
markets can flourish and constantly
replenish their stock, so that their
wares can be kept fresh and allur
ing. Far more terrible than any
manufactured melodrama is the
heart-rending story of Hollywood's
party-girl revelations.
