Masculine jail clothing was substituted for feminine attire worn by these three youths after they were nabbed early today. They said they had been employed as female domestic servants in fashionable Wilshire district. Physical examination by police showed that 'Tisha Porter' actually is Queque Malpress, 19; 'Rita Porter' is Frank Porter, 21, and 'Mary Lee Porter' is Willie Moore, 21 (left to right).
