Girl Bandit Given Severe Sentence

BAKERSFIELD, May 27.—An indeterminate sentence of from five years to life today hung over Eleanor Walling, 20-year old bandit, who pleaded guilty to participation in the $5700 robbery of the State Bank of Taft.

Miss Walling was sentenced late yesterday by Superior Judge Peairs receiving the court’s decree with the same coolness which has marked her every move since she was arrested.
