He listed only the stock market control bill, anti-crime legislation and extension of the temporary bank deposit guarantee as the only ."must measures.

Plans were being for mulated for a resumption of work. Operators in Kentucky and other states, however, protested that they could not afford to pay the new wage schedules, ordered by the NRA.

Seeks Exposition. Particularly, the British government sought an exposition of Japanese intentions regarding British activities in China. Hirota remained silent concerning the matter today. He will speak before prefectural governors in ToMo on May 4 and some newspapers quoted him as promising an explanation to Washington and other capitals to allay suspicion. It was learned from an official course that the interview between Sir Francis and Hirota lasted about 40 minutes. Confined to oral questions with no note presented, it was conducted through an interpreter. The Tokio participants agreed to maintain secrecy. Grew Kot Instructed.

"BABY FACE" NELSON WASHINGTON, April 25. I*) --George "Baby Face" Nelson, Chicago criminal, was definitely identified at the department of justice today as the Dillinger mobsman who killed special agent W. Carter Baum in the gunplay in Wisconsin woods early Monday. rison cell. He was freed on his lea that be was not an habitual riminal, and that he was needed or the support of an aged father.

Call From London. Indicative of the interest in Dil- inger abroad, Chief of Police Thomas Dahill at St Paul received wo telephone calls from London newspapers, the Times and the Evening News. Dahill told them Jillinger had not been captured. The Condon News commented: "It's uite an interesting story over .ere." In Berlin, the newspaper Zwoelf Jhr Blatt editorialized that with KRASCHEL STATEMENT DES MOINES, April 25. (/P)--The statement of Lieut. Gov. Kraschel follows: 'The voluntary dismissal of this case by the prosecution is the answer to its lack .of merit. 'Iowa's public works true record is the envy of all other states. Of the 85 PWA projects in the United States that are completed, 42 of them are credited to Iowa. Naturally, I am proud of having a part in making this record. It was the purpose of Governor Herring in naming me as Iowa's director of public works that I should assist Iowa communities in helping them prepare their projects for early consideration by the advisory board to be subsequently named and organized. Slash Red Tape. "The slashing of red tape and assistance given these communities- made possible the early approval and completion of many projects during the winter of 1933 and 1934 that might otherwise have been delayed until the summer of 1934. This resulted in the early employment of idle men and idle dollars as contemplated to meet the emergency recognized by tie national industrial recovery act. "It is unfortunate that Iowa should have been subjected to the humiliation created by the unwarranted attack. An explanation by the officials responsible for same is certainly in order. "I have been criticized for recommending local financing by the communities rather than asking for a government loan .The great delay in obtaining government loans is evidenced by the fact that but one to this date has been purchased in Iowa, the Cedar Rapids sewage disposal project, and it is interesting to note that the government resold those bonds to White Phillips, an Iowa bond house, at a profit to the government of approximately $2,800. No Speed or Saving. "This experience alone proves that there was neither speed nor saving in the adoption of that procedure. Circular No. 2 of the public works administration under date of Aug. 1, 1933, states that the immediate program shall include only projects that can be started -within 30 days. Out of the 85 projects completed in the United States only one of them has a government loan attached. 'Obviously my recommendations were sound. Putting Iowa money to work in sov.d investments in the employment of Iowa labor-is a wholesome policy. The records show that where bond Issues were sold locally that the funds for their pur-, chase came from postal savings banks and hoarded funds, in no instance have bank deposits been decreased. Attempt by Ickes. "The refusal to hear me before the grand jury, even 'though I offered to we've all immunity, and' the attempt of the secretary of the interior, Harold M. Ickes, to convict me in the press and by radio while I was awaiting the orderly American processes of the courts, are entirely contrary to the spirit and philosophy of our government. "The facts as now recognized by tie prosecution were available then and have been at every other stage of the Investigation. The 1 dismissal of this case is, therefore, exactly what the facts have demanded from the beginning. Snow Plows Clear Roads at Red Oak RED OAK, April 25. (/P)--Snow plows are busy in Montgomery county, chugging out -defiance to spring breezes and a balmy sun.

UP)-President Roosevelt has new ideas for using his "pet," the subsistence homestead program, as a medium for national planning to bring back Into a balance a population he said had grown up "like topsy." In an easy going, extemporaneous talk to directors of projects who are already trying to find uncrowd- ed homes and a bit of land for those stranded in industrial centers. Mr. Roosevelt counseled a backing away from "legislative panaceas." Must Help Themselves, Promising there would be no "regimentation or transplanting of population by force," the president said the government aid is to provide opportunities for those who wanted to help themselves. "We want something more out of our program than just being alive," he said. "This is not simply a question of just preventing starvation. It is one of education--a more abundant life. Mr. Roosevelt turned from homesteads in his talk yesterday to what was interpreted as an allusion to Dr. William A. Wirt and his charges that "brain trusters" were plotting revolution. Use Gray Matter. "By using .gray matter, brain trust or otherwise," he said, "we can discover a lot of new things we can do. We want evolution. When you hear talk of revolution there is one letter too many in that word." Aides said it was only a coinci dence that the president an hour or so before had appointed a man named by Wirt--Dr. Rexford G. Tugwell--as undersecretary of agriculture at a S2.000 salary boost over his present post as assistant secre tary. lowan Fatally Injured. CEDAR RAPIDS, April 25.

GOVERNMENT IN SPAIN RESIGNS Cabinet Ooposes President Over New Political Amnesty Law. MADRID, April 25. CrP--The government of Premier Alejandro Lerroux resigned today as a result of differences with President Niceto Alcala Zamora over Spain's new political amnesty law.
