The complainants arc FJIii   Klein
ert, daughter of Frederick Kleiner1
a rich Newark N.J. distiller andJi
eno Wohlleben,   ol New York,    nlso
snid to belong to a well to do family.    The prosecution will malntal
that Allen is Mansfield doulbto in n|
pearnitce, nnd that his polished man-
ners made it easy for him   to    deceive tho girls.
"Wo wcro in thc park when this
man came by," testified Miss Kloln-
ert. "Ho wore a Prince Albert nml
carried a cane. He (rot into con
versatlon with us and said he was
Mniisfteld and could put, us on thc
stage. We ran away and came lo
Chicago with him. He took us 1,
a boarding house, and it was some
timo belore wc found be was not atr
nctor. Thc landlady tnlrl the police
sho thought wc were not ol age,
and an investigation showed us Untruth."
Thc parents of taciii girls were In
