Nashville. Tenn., No. 14—FT*1— A nude body found in u shallow grave on the outskirts of Nashville was identified today as that of Dorothy Ann Distelhurst, six-year girl kidnaped as she was enroute home from kindergarten on September lh. The announcement of the identification was made bv Attorney General J. Curl ton Loser who said the child was murdered. Dr. Herman Spitz. pathologist, and Dr. Leonard F. Pogue, dentist and orthodontist, examined the body and joined the attorney general in the announcement that th** identification was positive. “The child was murdered.*’ Loser said. “Her skull at the left side was crushed by a hammer or other blunt instrument. A rag was found in her mouth, j possibly used as a gag to prevail an outcry.” The girl’s father, a. S. Distelhurst. who had been in New York in an attempt to contact the kidnapers and pay over the $5,000 demanded for the child's return, left New York this morning by plane after being advised j of th** discovery of the body. He had not been advised of the identification made bv the prosecuting attorney and the doctors. Identification Posit ive “The identification was established definitely by the filling in the second upper right baby molar." Dr. Pogue said. He had filled Dorothy Ann’s tooth shortly before she disappeared and said the filling in th** tooth was Im work. The body was found on the Davidson county hospital grounds late yesterday but the announcement of th** identification wa-delayed until the physicians made i *ie examination which convinced them the body was that of the girl. General Loser’s statement follows: “The mids body found on the Davidson county Tuberculosis hospital grounds late yesterday afternoon is that of Dorothy Ann Distelhurst. While the corpse is in such a state of decomposition as to render identification by those who knew the child impossible, every other fact iii connection with the matter points to th** conclusion that he body is that of the Diselhurst child. Doctors Herman Spitz, pathologist. and ^Leonard F. Pogue, children's dentist and orthodontist, specialists in their respective professions, after a careful examination of the teeth report that the identification is certain and positive. “The child was murdered. Her skull at the left side was crushed by a hammer or other blunt instrument. A rag was found in her mouth, possibly used as a gag to prevent an outcry. Sheriff's deputies, police, department of justle** agents and investigators in my office are all working together in an effort to learn the motive for the homicide, as well as th** party or parties perpetrating the crime.” Search Begins General Loser said a thorough search for the person or persons responsible for the girl s disappearance would b** started in Nashville and Davidson county. “VCV have no lead at all, he said, adding that ransom notes addressed to Mr. Distelhurst after the child’s disappearance w’ere, in his opinion written by ‘cranks’ who were not connected with th** abduction. He advanced the theory the crime was committed by a resident or residents of Nashville. The department of justice proceeded with an investigation of ransom notes. were worth preserving in Ibis, they are not less worthy of preservation now.” Hat bet son said, in pointing out that the American! Legion s program of public service is on** of the greatest of it> kind in history. “Armistice Day, to the American Legion, is the anniversary of a thanksgiving for peace, and a day for the profound pledging of ourselves anew to keep faith with the dead who made th** supreme sacrifice, and lo keep faith with the living who suffered wounds an*! disease in a sacrifice often greater than death. “You and I owe a debt to the coming generation, perhaps to lh* present generation of you ng American manhood, a debt we can pay by supporting the ideals of democracy for which we fought," tin* speaker said in closing, “for th** protection of our flag and the progress of our people."

A merchant gave her a rug as reward for her earnest effort. Work Has “Stood I p” Mrs. Hutchinson stated that one nedy and Mrs. 1.. E. Hutchinson. The federal government had not yet taken up th** work and this county had made no appropriation for th** work. Mrs. Hutchinson, an outstanding housewife of Pontotoc county with an enviable reputation for proficiency in the management of lier own home, accepted the trying position at a real sacrifice, for the pay w’as small and th** hardships many. Th** roads were rough and few' in number and very few could be traveled by automobile. Mrs. Hutchinson drove a buggy on her rounds and was jokingly called the “circuit rider." It being impossible to reach home A very night she would be away several days on a nip. spending th** nights with her club members. Site was paid for only 12 days per month but actually put in practically the entire month at her work .Met With Suspicion Although she was a welcome visitor in many homes where sh** helped the housewives opt patterns and gave them recipes rot-cooking, she was received wit t suspicion in otb**rs. Th*' work was something new and some would not believe her at tirst when sh** told them what she was doing! cost them absolutely nothing. They kept trying to find nut where the graft was and finally someone started a tale to the effect that she was going to keep for herself the canning exhibits thai her clubs were to make at th** first county fair held that fall. When the fair was over and every exhibit was returned to its owner, they became convinced that they had not yet discovered the graft. During this year sh** organiz *1 clubs at Fitzhugh, Oakman, Yan-' oss. Center and Colbert with a combined membership of less than i IOO. On a recent visit to the home demonstration agent’s office at the courthouse she related some experiences that were anything but pleasant at the time, but which now, in the light of passing years, are somewhat amusing.

She had lost all sense jot direction so she decided to drive to the top of the next hill, turn the back of the buggy to the storm and unhook her horses. Ini-J agin** her relief when she readied the hill top to find that she was near Fitzhugh! she drove fast to the nearest house and just as .he i drove under shelter a terrific rain and hail fell, the worst in years. j Another time she had to spend four days at Egypt in the home of Clint Palmer because San iv* creek could not be crossed. When she finally started home a man drove a wagon in front of hor Bant to guide it across Sandy. which was bank full. Mr- Palmer drove the team behind the wagon and the water was so deep it ran over th** backs of the horses. Mrs. Hutchison walked across on a wire fence, holding to the top wire and using the lower one for footing. Changes Vividly Marked Main and Broadway so that the mothers could view the entire parade as it moved by. Floats Noteworthy Several of the floats were among the most beautiful ever seen here, all of them being worthy of special mention because of their portrayal of scenes remind-full of the World War or of duties to the living. Military music was provided by the Ada junior high band, the Ada high school band and th** East Central St att* Teacher college band. Groups marching in the proces-cession included the Boy Scouts, on bicycles or afoot. Edward Bok Newsboys’ club, Norman Howard post of the American Legion, a group of horsemen and later a group of feminine riders. Additional touches of military color were provided by the national guard units of Allen and Ada, some marching, ofhers in the motorized equipment of trucks, caissons and gun trucks. 1Z. C. V.
