Justice of the Peace Henry L. Oppcnborn said the execution or- der was issued so that an autopsy might be performed on the imi- mals to learn if the stomachs con- tain any particles of clothing torn from the woman's hody and also to fulfill Ihc request Of their im- prisoned owner, 43-year-old Joe Munn, nf nearby Hiulcah. Police (juoted Munn ns saying: "They are a bad strain. They must he destroyed." Jn the meantime, authorities worked to clear up several pun- linK aspects in the strange case. The investigators said the macabre opisodc, which brought to an end the adventurous career of Mrs. Dorctta Zinkc, globe-trotting writer, lecturer nnd ethnologist, was so far as they knew without parallel. A leading Miami veterinarian commented: "No dog is horn haps one in a thousand. That ap- plies to Pit Bulls and all other breeds." Police Chief Albert Lemoine of Hiifleah said he triedtogetastate- mcnt from the dying woman, but she only moaned, Mrs. ZJnko was found at 9 p. m.

Mrs. Z'mke died a short while :aler in a hospital. Would Proxectite County Prosecutor Robert Tay- lor said (he would prosecute the case the, full extent of the but acknowledged final dis- position of the manslaughter charge against Munn was in doubt. He added he would prob- ably have to prove that the dogs were "wilfully" allowed to run at large. Munn is held under bond. Peace Justice Henry L. Oppen- ordered an autopsy per- formed and tentatively set an in- quest for Monday. The F.B.I, here disclosed it was investigating "several aspects ol the case, but make no further comment. Constable M. Hudson quoted Munn, a driver for a Miami laun- dry, who came to Florida about five years ago from East Orange N. 0., as saying he had knowi Mrs. Zinke slightly for a year am a half. -His acquaintance with her, he said, consisted largely of listening to her stories of travels in the Fijls, Australia and New Guintfn Mrs. Zinkc had flown 3 O.OOC .miles over Alaska, using a hirei plane, to study primitive Eskimo tribes and had lived two years in the Fiji Islands compiling cthno .logical data.

May 20th. we celebrate "I Am An American a day- set aside for us to reflect upon Ihe things we enjoy and which have been denied many people through- out this world. Three hundred years ago. a band of settlers who found safety on American shores knelt and gave Ihnnks to Almighty God for their deliverance. On this Sunday, we too. should, in our places of worship, give thanks to Almighty God for the opportunity I to live in a land where we can en- joy freedoms unknown to many. To you who about to become American citizens. I say. learn .comcihing bf the hiMoric.il back- ground of your country. When you Raze upon the Flag, symbolic of our Miss Conway spoke of the tradi- lon of May Day and dedicated this year's festivities to the class- mates who are already serving in .he armed forces. She spoke as follows: Address "Year after year, we, Ameri- cans, observe holidays com- memorating historic events or national heroes. These days of celebration are part of our Amer- ican tradition. Today, we are commemorating the most colorful, annual event in the history of this school. Today, following the tra- dition handed down by the Senior classes of other years, we arc ob- serving May Day. "Though the beauty of this exercise fills our hearts with joy, yet are comcious of a hidden note of sorrow. That sorrow Is caused by the absence of some of our classmates: classmates in the service of our country. To them, in the colors, who today arc mak- ing American history, we dedicate this May Day. "It is considered the highest honor of a senior to be chosen May Queen. This year, my class- mates have bestowed that single, honor upon me. In true humility, and with a sense of real joy, I offer to them, my sincere thanks. As Mav Queen, in behalf of the class and all the students of thi_ high school. I offer our thanks to all who have worked so diligently to make our May Day of 1945 a success. 1 "As Shakespeare so ably said, 'The Play is the we offer now, for your enjoyment, our May Dav exercises." Immediately following the Queen's address girls from the My- ron J. Michael School dressed in peasant blouses and skirts wound the May Pole which this year con- tained streamers of many colors. This was followed by a marching drill given by the Leaders Club. These girls are among the out- standing students in gymnasium work and gave a demonstration of various marching formations. They were dressed in white "gym'' suits with short white skirts. The May Dances by girls from the physical education: .classes in- cluded a square set, Sicilian circle and schottische. The girls wore flower printed long peasant style dresses with white ruffled panta- lets. Unfortunately the music for the dancing ivas not loud enough for the majority of the audience to hear and detracted from the dance numbers. The highlight of May Day again this year was the tumbling acts of the boys from the Myron J. Mich- ael School and the boxing and pole vaulting of the -high school hoys. The tumblers showed their expert training and agility in a number of somersaults, springs, twists and dives. The program in- cluded round-off with one-half twist: chest and dive-vault through hands, back extension: over and under dive; head spring from throwers hands; back'somer- sault single leg lift; back somer- sault, thrower's hand, thrower sit- forward, fall, thrower's shoulder' toward roll; and finally diving over several rolls of mats. The boxing was a new entry in the May Day exercises. Two rings were marked out on the field and eight ot the older boys tried their skill in two rounds. At the same time a pole vaulting exhibition was given. Not to be surpassed by the dis- play of acrobatic skill of the boys, Miss Blossom Barnett gave an acrobatic dance gracefully doing difficult back bends and turns A class of twirlers from the Myron J. Michael School and Kingston High School performed as did the band twirlers. The pro- gram closed with the singing of the National Anthem. During the festivities Prime Minister Nock called for the cap- tains of the varsity teams to come forward and receive rose from the May Queen. The teams were represented by John CMrander football; Gustavc Koch. baseball- William Savcskic, track; Joseph Magnino. tcnrib. and Bernard Stahl for basketball in place of Donald Ross, who left for services ofllrc In Uonk fit PSRC 3S6 to iihirti __________ ._ hereby toi a moie particular 3.
