The blaze was persistent but was prevented Irom becoming extensive. Firemen were occupied for more than five hours in extinguishing it. So dense was the smoke that Hairy Warner, one of the Jiremen, was overcome and had to be aided in leaving the building, and Joe Ryan was injured when he fell through the charred floor into the basement. Warner was but momentarily incapacitated.

Chairman C. Jasper Dell, D Mo., of the house old age pension investigation .charged today that the Town-send movement was trying to halt the inquiry because some "of its leaders are getting Jittery." The Townsend organization directors previously had ordered legal representatives to start court action to halt the house inquiry. Benn contended the leaders ip-parently are getting nervous over the disclosures of "abused busts and betrayed and violated confidences." Referring to the opposition of the directors to the Smith anti-lobbying bill. Bell charged the Townsend organization "with i'll of its press agentry in the Town-send Weekly and through its thousands of paid speakers and organizers," nil working under undemocratic pledges to speak only those words placed in their mouths by leaders at headquarters has admitted it collected practically $1,000,000."

The Big Ten conference alone, he said, collected $300,000 from 400,000 spectators.

This decision was reached after it had been announced that the . county court has withdrawn, the $100 a month which it was con-, tributing toward this service, and that the condition of the chapter's treasury was such that the Red Cross could not make up the difference. Accordingly Red Cross support of the project will terminate June 18, upon conclusion, of the school year. The program included .nain-tenance ot a county health nurse, which position is now being filled by Juanita Johnston. '.
