Eightly per cent of the building trades workers are out of work according to A. F. of L. figures. Many of them have been out of work for years. In a dismaying number of cases, the task of keeping them and their dependents from starving has been taken on by the government. If it had nothing else to recommend it. the housing campaign offers a chance to attack the problem of unemployment employment on one of its most dif- fronts. XXX And yet that is only a part of it. You need more than workers to build or repair a house. You need materials—lumber, cement, bricks, nails, shingles, hardware, electric fixture*, plumbing fixtures and so on. Every contract that is let for construction or renovizing of a dwelling is a stimulant for the industries which moke and sell these comodlties. These things need to be carrcd from the site of manufacture to the place where they arc to be used. Railroads, barges and steamship lines, trucking —all these wil share in the concerns—nil these wi] share in the revival that comes to the industries involved in rehousing. XXX Then there is idle money in the banks—money whch lies a dead weight when it is not working. Rehousing means loans; loans which, in this in-, stance bear moderate interest rates! and are guaranteed, up to 20 per cent of tho'r face value by Uncle Sam. himself, and which require no collateral beyond the borrower's ability to pay his monthly installments. Such loans mean that this idle money gpcs to work, to spread prosperity acttttrf- thtlTftrtloh.- •-...-• Lastly there is the householder himself.

Simultaneously Sheriff John L. Vilson announced that, he would in- rcase n personal reward of from $25 to $50 for evidence leading to the arrest and conviction of the slayer of Walter Billings. Billings, a Hope carpenter and paper hanger, was Hilled last spring when he went to the rear of his home at night to investigate what he thought was a raid on his chicken coop. Two blasts from a shotgun rang out. Billings slumped to the ground, dead. His slayer or slayers escaped in the darkness. Police made an investigation, but without success. The reward, Sheriff Wilson „„., Wednesday, would stand good unti the first of January. It is understood that other reward of over a $100. posted by the City o of Hope and a local lodge, remain, for the conviction of Billings' killer Cases that will come before the nex circuiy court include, the F,ulton tol bridge slaying of Glenn L,' Williams Four Hempstead county negroes arc held far his murder which occurred only a few days before Billings was shot to death.

"There are some requirements ol the bureau that we must meet," sale Mr. Block, "and it now seems impassible to say just what we can do Personally I am in favor of spread- ins the funds over the entire state.' He .said at the last meeting variou.* communitier presented their requests and when all were in the total was more than $35,000,000. "And this figure does not represent a single request from Eastern Arkan- ,sas communities, which did not apply to I he commission," Block suit). "In my district the requests were made to me, and one road alone they wont in. Eastern Arkansas would cost $35,- (IUO.WIO. Of course, we haven't the funds to go around, so there is no use in anyone kidding himself that he will eel all he asked for."

This was disclosed by federal agents who said the admission was made in the confession of Arthur W. OLeary, investigator for Dillinger's attorney, Louis Piquettc. O'Leary, Piquette and five others lave been arrested and charged with harboring the gang leader before he was. shot to death by federal agents. OLeary's confession is said to have evealcd that Dillinger maintained a general, office" in Piguette's office while police and federal agents all over the country vainly sought for urn. O'Leary's confession did not place Dillinger in the office, it was said, but held that his lieutenants and the women members of the gang gathered there to .work out details of their 1 business ventures." Arrangements were also made in the office, according to the agents, for remodeling of-.the features of Dillinger and Homer Van Meter, gang lieutenant, who was killed in a .federal ambush in St. Paul. . New Charge Made As the disclosures were made, a new charge was filed against Piquette. who announced that he will fight the original charges on harboring Dillinger on the ground that he acted only in the role of attorney for the gangster. Piquettc was charged with harboring and concealing a fugitive in the person of Dr. Wilheim Looser, who is under arrest as the physician who performed the operation on Dillinger's face. he charge was based on the case in which Looser was sentenced to Lea- vcnworth for violation of the Harrison anti-narcotic law. Loescr was pa- •oled in December, 1932, through the efforts of Piquette after serving one year of a three year term. After two months Loescr ceased reporting to the parole officer, federal officers say. They held that Piquetto ';new these facts and prevented the pprehension of Looser by failing to take and action. Grand Jury Impaneled The grand jury was impaneled by "edcral Judge John P. Barnes and ,'il hear (lie evidence against the scv- en charged with harboring Dillinger as soon as routine matters are out o the way. The jurorrs arc expected t reach the Dillingcr case n«t later thai Thursday. Defendants were Attorney Piquclle O'Lcary and Dr. Loeser, and Dr. Bar old Cassidy, who is charged with aid ing in (.lie plastic surgery. William Fincrty and his wife, Ella, in whose home Dillingcr is said to have takci refuge, and Marie Conforti, sweet heart of the slain Van Meter. S.
