DOCTOR IS HELD FOR TRIAL
Charged With Manslaughter in Connection With Death of High
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept. 6.—Dr. Jacob Hall was presented before the criminal court today on a charge of manslaughter in connection with the death of Meta Zook, a high school girl, last August. Dr. Fabian Pratt, who was given his preliminary hearing simultaneously with Dr. Hall was discharged on the ground of “insufficient evidence.” Dr. Hall furnished
$2,000 bonds and was released.
The principal witnesses today were boys of the so-called “Armour Boulevard bunch,” of Westport high school, who told of intimate relations with Meta Zook and of making up a purse to pay for the operation that caused her death.
Disclosures made at the incident involved a dozen young men from fashionable residence districts and led to agittion of a school board rule prohibiting boys of wealthy families attending high school in their motorcars and taking the “co-eds” joy riding.
