This week the Banking and Currency Committee has been holding hearings on a bill which would prohibit holding Com" janies from owning control of Savings and Loan Associations. Now this may seem entirely without vital concern at first glance but when one gets into It he begins to realize that the entire structure of our Savings and Loan Associations would became vastly changed if '• this condition is permitted to continue. At the present -time there is only 'one holding company operating in this manner and a look 'at their operations reveals that in one year alone they have made over one million dollars by At Air Force Base * 0 A, (left abo » e) ' and - * A. •' u oth fro , m A1 e° na ' are completing the first phase of their basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas.

Representing WOODMEN ACCIDENT AND LIFE COMPANY heir tranfser maneuvers. By ermitting a holding company to ain control of a Savings and ..ban Association the management is no longer one of local interest and the community suffers by the remote control type of operation. It is my opinion that the bill will be favorably reported out of the committee and will receive approval of both houses. * * * The House Agriculture Committee reported out a bill thij week by a slim margin. which probably will draw a heavy debate on the floor if it reaches the floor in its present state. I have talked with various members of the Agriculture Committee since they vpted on this measure in the committee and there is considerable thought now to work on a substitute bill. Therefore, while the press has carried banner headlines about the bill which wa_s reported out of the committee in the end this may not be the 'bill up for consideration at all. I venture to say that by next week we should pretty well know what will be done in this regard. We have had only about six days of sunshine since January :irst. The weather pattern is beginning to break up, however, and it is getting more like the fine weather in Iowa recently. There are several delegations coming to Washington from Iowa and the district and we- are most happy to welcome them all.

All escaped with only the clothes they were wearing. • Shortage Of Wai«* Firemen were hampered tn their efforts to control the inferno by a shortage of water. At,the height of the blaze, about 8 fl.rn., several hose lines were shut down in order to maintain pressure for the others. By noon firement were further plagued by a shift of the wind to the northwest. Earlier, a light south breeze was throwing sparks into the residential area north of the burning buildings. Some apprehension was expressed regarding the building on the south side of the street. The water supply by late morning had become ihore acute, with hoses shut down intermittently while the well pumps caught up the supply. By noon observers believed this condition was alleviated to some extent.*/ Meanwhile the brick opera house building and the cafe were completely collapsed and main attention was on the publishing firm's building. The upper story was gone there with flames Continuing to eat their way down into the plant.
