The Senator's vision began w'tn a lake to beautify the miinor hour.!- ic'd already built In the reniei- if x hit 3,000 ncrc Mississippi plar,- jition. So he got out his mnle, .ailed a one-imned iissislant ami .wo boys nnd started to din h'ni- ii'll u 'pond.

He left nn Island in Ihoi nkldle of U. ! There Bilbo erected a sm;ill iilinslon hf called Dream House Number Two. And soon the snn- itor was Improving Ills drcnm.

Part of Hilbo's drcnm (it, was a whopper, .that dream) consisted 01 a new home for the Juniper Grove Baptist .Church by Ilic lake, and a new rome with four batli tubs for the preacher. Bilbo's co'.U'.'.iotor friends contributed checks ranging from $500 lo $3.500 for these td:[Ices. Came- Christina.; and thcio was the Junior dream house, bare, uolti ami empty on the Island. Sllljr/s secretary nnd one of his pohl.lcill cronies borrowed $500 from Ihe bunk lo buy sofas, . chairs aim floor lumps as a je- membratiee to the senator. The bank eventually demanded that these worthies coutjh up Ihe SliOO. plii-i f.17 interest. So 'J"n- Ifnetor Hee<i paid vhul.' loo W5iy did he do It? "They asked." he testified.
