Mrs. Henry Selke wishes to contradict the statement published in yesterday’s News which attributed the partial suffocation of her children on Saturday night to escaping gas. Mrs. Selke said that a thorough search of the premises failed to detect any gas escaping and she further says that she believes that an attempt was made to chloroform herself and her children.

Would love to see the statement published in “yesterday’s News.” Anyone have the clipping available?
