    The amount per night charged for high-class calls in 1952 by Minot F. "Mickey" Jelke, 22, the young heir of a margarine fortune who ran a prostitution ring out of his apartment. He was receiving $200 a month from his trust fund, but his apartment was reported to cost $147.50, which may account for his extralegal activities.
