Robert Bacigalupo, UPG chairman, and the delegation joined forces with the South Lawndale association in a brief statement listing their objections. "We contend the open occu- pancy ordinance is unconstitu- tional and violates the princi- ple of private property. This is something the Communists are interested in fostering in trying to destroy the rights of the Bacigalupo de- clared. In other UPG action Baciga- lupo said more block unit or- ganizations are being mobilized and others are being revital- ized. During one recent organiza- tional meeting covering a 16 square block unit from Lara- mie to Central and Jackson to Harrison a statement was made that residents "intend to stay; there would be no run- ning away." Bacigalupo said one man spoke up declaring it wouldn't do any good and pinpointed the area east of Pulaski where speculators preyed on both whites and Negroes. "In retort I told him there was no support there from the churches and politicians. Here have their help. The situa- tion won't be the same west of the Belt Bacigalupo said. He pointed out that Aid. Daniel Ronan (30th) and Paul Corcoran (37th) have given and the churches are, -too, he added. The man was convinced and joined the UPG. There were some 150 persons attending the meeting.

Later, she said she thought it was "a big, life-size doll." Then she saw the blood. And Noreen screamed- high I screams. She ran he alley with "Blackie" suit and she screamed i again and again, "there's a dead girl in the alley there's a dead girl in the alley." And Noreen ran into her house and into the arms of her mother. V The name was Diane and yesterday she iave been nine years old. She was gay and a sometime tomboy but some- times a petite pretty "little glasses were missing and her undergarments had been part- ly removed. She was gagged with her kerchief and blouse. The mother said she phoned Diane from work at a.m. Thursday and the child told her she was going swimming at the Austin YMCA, 501 N. Central. The mother returned home at p.m. and heard that Diane was last seen by a friend in the drug store at Lake and Central at noon. Coroner Andrew .J. To- man, a physic-Ian, after ex- amining the body at the scene, said she had been stabbed four times with a knife. When had her murderer dropped the body? Vincent Gatto, 11, of 1031 N.

The coat was turned over to police by Carl Stockholm, own- er of a chain of cleaning estab- lishments headquartered at 218 N. Pulaski. Stockholm told police the grey jacket was brought into his plant on Pulaski Monday by a young man in his early twenties. Yesterday the blood stains were discovered on the right shoulder of the jacket. Police have the name and ad- dress of the man who brought the coat into the cleaners. How- ever, they withheld the name until the coat is checked by the crime lab. Police were also holding a letter addressed to the dead girl's mother Rita, 30, with the words "sin on your soul" printed on the face of the envelope. The letter, mailed from Chi- cago, arrived at the Austin post office, 324 S. Laramie, Tuesday, and Frank McDonald, acting superintendent, turned it over to the postal inspector's office. Jerome Williamson, chief postal inspector, said the printing on the envelope looked like it was done by "a demented and said it was probably the work of a crank. But due to the sensitivity of the case, the letter was turned over to police, Williamson said. The letter bore no return ad- dress and police yesterday were waiting for funeral services for the victim to end so Mrs. Taylor could open the letter. A ring found yesterday after- noon near the entrance to the girls gym at Austin High school was to be viejwed by the mother but Detcc-tivc John Ma- honey said it did not answer the description of either ring worn by Diane. Meanwhile, t h e swarm of detectives specially detailed to the case began their second day of a house-to-house canvass of Austin in a search for clues. Capt. Francis Flanagan, homi- cide division, said there were no definite clues to Diane's slayer and police were hoping to unravel the mystery in the canvass of the seven square mile area. Also undergoing close in- vestigation is the Austin YMCA, .501 N. Central, where Diane attended day camp and where the girl was last seen alive last Thursday.
