"Dracula Girl"

WRITHING UNDER a "vampire" attack. Clarita Villanueva, 18, of Manila (Philippines), is watched anxiously by the city's mayor (with glasses) as she is held by a police doctor and a nurse. For the past 17 days since she was gaoled (and later acquitted) on a vagrancy charge, mysterious teeth marks have appeared on the girl's arms during her struggles with the invisible "vampire." Two Government doctors say the marks are the result of an attack of hysterical fugue, a nervous complaint.
