Mr. nncl Mrs, Eclwnrcl Pryno had Just finished inspecting a 'model home' in a new really development. As they were about to leave, a man who had also been looking through the house, smiled and spoke to them. "A very attractive house, isn't it?" he remarked. "The house is attractive enough," said Edward, "but the price isn't." "That," said the stranger, "Is my thought, exactly. Why, you know, . you could build a duplicate of that fit/ VATA 9fiQ 1 9ft housc on nn cqualily satisfactory site UY T Ul" £UO"-L£i/ for * 2 '°°° Icss tha » lhc y afc asking." " "It seems that way to me," said Edward. "We're looking for a house, but these are out of the question." "Why not build your own?" "Oh," said Edward, "that would bo all right if we had the money, but we can't do it right now." As they"walked out to the street, the stranger said: "Il'd pay you to borrow the money." Edward laughed, "That's easy to say. But while bunks have plenty of money, they're holding onto it. I don't think they arc making that kind of loans now. Well, here comes our bus . . ." "Wait a minute. I'm going back to town and there's plenty of room in my car. I'd be glad to drop you off anywhere you say." "Why, thanks. That's very nice of you. My name is Pryne. This is Mrs. Pryne." "How do you do, Mrs. Pryne. My name is Booth." As they drove along, the matter uf building was brought up again. Booth said: "Mr. Pryne, a bank isn't the place to go for a loan of that kind." "No Where- else would you go?" "Why, the FHA," said Booth "I happen to be one of the representatives of the FHA. We go out to these private developments to compare what they are doing with what we can do." "Well," said Edward, "I guess there's a lot of red tape, conditions and restrictions connected with FHA loans." "That's what many people think. But it's all wrong. The plan is very simple. I can arrange for you to borrow enough to build your house and all you pay is a low rata of interest." "Is that so?" "Absolutely," said Booth. "Of course wo investigate to sec that a man is all right. How much would you need?" "Well, we have some money, but we'd need about 55000 more." "That's easy. I'll take care of it personally. You just sign an application today and you'll have the cash in ten days." "Is that all I have to do—just sign an application?" "That's all," said Booth, "except that you must make a deposit of 2 per cent, but the deposit is returned with the loan,' That's just'.a;',guaranty of your good faith Y6ur i 'deposit""w8utd' v be think it would be fine," said Mrs. Pryne, "to build our own home. Then we'd have everything just the way we want it." "Yes," said Booth, "mid you'd have a better housc, because you can sec just what goes into its construction." The Pryncs were glad of the opportunity. They stopped at the bank, where Edward signed the application, drew $100 and gave it to Booth. "If you don't hear from me in ten days," said Booth, "call me at this number," He handed Edward a card. When two weeks had passed with no word of the loan, Edward called the number on Booth's card. He wa.s greatly surprised to learn that there- was no such number. He went to the address given, but that, too, was fictitious. G\i further investigation, Edward Pryne found that he was a victim of the old "deposit racket" in a new setting. Farm Bill Given House's Approval . Vote 268-129 Soil Conservation Payments Continued, With Acreame Limits SMELL LOAN FRAUD Several Arrests Scheduled by U. S. Over Arkansas Loans WASHINGTON. - (/I 1 ) - The housc passage of crop control legislation gave administration forces Saturday their first effective lever for breaking up a legislative jam which has blocked President Roosevelt's special session program. Senator Barkley, Domcocratic leader, predicted that the senate would approve early next week the farm bill differing from the house measuso in only two respects as follows: Degree of compulsion and the methods of aiding farmers financially when prices arc depressed. The house will begin consideration Monday of the wage-hour bill, which has aroused even greater controversy than the farm program. Passed l>y House WASHINGTON. — (/P; - The house made good Friday its leadership's pledge to President Roosevelt and passed, 268 to 129, a bill to control the production of crops and the marketing of surpluses. The bill got through by a narrower squeak than the final vote indicated. Only a few minutes earlier, the House rejected, 206 to 197, an amendment by Representative Anderson (Rep., Minn.) to sen dthe measure back to the Agriculture Committee for revision. A switch of five votes would have thrown the bill right back where it started and possiBly have prevented action on President Roosevelt's No. 1 recommendation until January. The measure provides for continuation of present payments for "sol conserving practices." Cotton, wheat and corn farmers would get this money provided they agreed to .abide by acreage limits set by the secretary] of ' - duction, the secretary could impose marketing quotas on wheat, corn and tobacco farmers, if two-thirds of producers voting in referenda agreed. Penalties would be imposed on farmers failing to comply with quotas. Early Senate Vote Expected The bill goes to the senate, where Majority Leader Berkley of Kentucky forecast a roll call vote on companion measure by Monday or Tuesday. Administration Democrats said the house, action broke the legislative jam that for three weeks has tied up the entire prograjn of the special session. Senate and house leaders had agreed last session to make crop control legislation the forst order of business when congress was reconvened. The pledge was exacted by the president in return for an executive order providing government loans on the 1937 cotton crop. Cottun Loan Fund LITTLE ROCK.— Several arrests will be made "within the next few days" on charges of large scale frauds against the federal government in connection with cotton loans, United States Attorney Fred A. Isgrig said Friday night. Mr. Isgrig said that his office will prosecute vigorously several persons, ho declined to name, on one or both of the following charges: 1. Baling inferior grades of cotton inside a thin layer of high grade cotton to get a high classification for the purpose of securing top government loans on large quantites of cotton not eligible for loans. 2. Purchasing cotton at prices below the nine-cent government loan figure iind having it ginned "in the name of .some producer" in order to obtain a federal loan of nine cents a pound. The first charge will be of fraud, and the second of false representation, Mr. Isgrig said. Under laws regulating activities of the Commodity Credit Corporation, crop loans may be made only to producers, Persons obtaining cut ton loans represent themselves to be the producers of ctton on which they seek loans, and if they are not, they arc violating the law, Mr. Isgrig said. Frauds Said Widespread Extent in Arkansas of such fraudulent operations was not indicated, but Mr. Isgrig said "U loks like a pretty colossa lining. Things have- certainly been done on a large scale in one spot." J. W. Jarrelt, manager of the Re- finunce Construction Corporation offices here through which Commodity Credi^Ccjnipration cotton luuns are cleared, saiu he had been advised that the frauds had been perpetrated throughout the state, and nut confined to any section. Officials indicated that it was believed that "ring operations had been practiced. At Washington John D. Goodloe, general attorney for the Commodity Credit Corporation recommended to the Department of Justice that charges of making illegal upplici)- lions for cotton loans be filed against "between 25 and 30" Arkansas cotton growers, buyers and ginners. 'Mr. Goodloe disclosed that agents had been at work in and around Little Rock for more than HI days, seeking evidence of fraud in connection with cotton loans.

Three children, trapped in a blazing house owed their lives to the heroism of a 20-year-old farm boy for whom admirers launched an immediate Carnegie medal campaign. Calmness of 200 theater-goers prevented a possible tragedy when they marched out of a burning theater into a near zero weather. The deaths in the past two days included Frank Lind, 39, Blythcville WPA worker; two-year-old Mary Irene Williams and her 11-months-old iistcr, Jessie Lee Williams, of near Augusto; a 60-year-old negro woman of Biscoc; and a four-months-old ne- gro child of Little Rock. Otis Glasgow, 20, saved three children of Mrs. Parker Stover, from death at their farm home near Tupelo, south of Newport. Mrs. Stover called Glasgow from a cotton field a half mile from her home when the house in which the children, aged one, three and five, were locked caught afire. Glasgow broke through a door and carried the children to safety. He and the youngest were burned slightly when the roof collapsed just as he left the house on his final rescue trip. Commander Frank Leach of the Newport post of the American Lcgiun said his organization would sock a Carnegie medal for Glasgow. The 200 theater-goers marched to safety from the State theater at Coining which was destroyed by tire ut a loss of approximately ?20,000. Tlie blaze apparently started in a loft on the building from an overheated stove. Cities Snowbound as Gold Wave Sweeps Nation 'Liner Hoover Is Reported to Be i% j Desperate Blocked streets and highways, buried automobiles and scenes of winter's white beauty marked the. sweep of a cold wave across the United States, bringing sub-zero temperatures and heavy snows /to .northern states.

Even the Deep South suffered as thermometers dropped to near-.. record lows, endangering crops. City and highway travel was slowed almost to a standstill in many .districts. Typical of scene.' in northern states was this above, of snowbound Buffalo, N. ¥., where an 11-inch snow buried the city, stalled motor cars and paralyzed business. Price-Fixing to FolIowLabor Bill McClelland Sees Dire Re- aults If Labor, Farm Unbalanced WASHINGTON—(/P)—Representative McClelland (Dem. Ark.) said during house debate on the farm bill Friday no "doubted the wisdom" of fixing commodity prices, but if Congress fixed the wages of industrial labor it would "have to be done." "You can not nail down one end of the plank for labor and leave the other exposed and ragged for the farmer," he said. "Wsen wages are raised n tne manufacturing establisnments, a corresponding increase occurs in the cost of what the farmers are compelled to buy. "So if we are goini to embark on outright, price-fixing policies—and 1 warn that they are dangerous—we can lot possibly jestify such a cause if we ignore and neglect those who dig from the earth the very food that sustains us all."
