Marshall notified the sheriff's office he would surrender but was arrested between Mesquite and Dallas, as he was driving to the city from his farm home at Mesquite with his father. Sheriff J. R., ("Red") Wright of Turrant county said he would take Marshall to Fort Worth. Four other men were charged with them.

The complaint charged that the men forced Farr to take a ride with them ast Friday night for the purpose of Betting money from the Farmers and Merchants' State bank at Mansfield and the State Bank of Mansfield." They ,werc accused of taking a shotgun and pistol from Farr. Marshall was swept into office as sheriff in the general election of 1924 and served until his term expired on December 31, 1926. He was taunted by opponents because he was just out of college. He won their admiration a few months later when he defied a mob of 5,000 people which stormed the jail and attempted to lynch two ne- groes charged with assaulting two white women. A few months later, Marshall added new laurels to his fame when he and six deputies led an attack which resulted in the surrender of Webb Martin, who with 12 other heavily armed men had barricaed himself in a house en the outskirts of Denton and defied 100 officers to take them. Martin was charged with murder for the fatal shooting of Deputy Sheriff R. B. Parsons on the public square at Dcnton. Marshall had been asked by Dentou officers to assist in his capture.

C. Powell, member of the anlional advisory committee, said Friday. Powell, whose committee had supervision of loans made to purchase stock in agricultural credit corporations, attended a meeting-if the committee in Washington, last week, returned Saturday night. He obtained the figures on the federal seed and fertilizer loans while in Washington. The me'eting of the national advisory committee Was the first held in several months, and few sessions of the organization, formed by President Hoover and the department of agriculture, have been held since July. Powell now is attending to business interests in the state. Arkansas farmers were by far the heaviest borrowers from the fund, with Mississippi second, having borrowed $4,442,178.75. The amount which farmers in this state already have re- { paid is larger than any other state except. Mississippi borrowed. The state haes repaid 37.92 per cent of the loans, a considerable higher percentage than most pf the 31 states whose farmers borrowed from the fund.
