Congressman W. .1.

Commenting further on legislation of local interest. Mr. Driver said that an appropriation of S32,- 000.000 was definitely earmarked by congress for flcod eonirol in the Lower Mississippi valley. Tr.e appropriation was withdrawn from the public works division anci was placed again under administration of the svar department and shouli! be immediate'.}' available. He indicated that, it was not unreasonable to expect that work would begin at the concrete casting plant at Butler and on other revetment projects in this vicinity by July 1. Laborers will be employed under regulations of cr.c war department and not under the NRA code, he said. The application for I'WA grants, made by the Arkansas Centennial Commission to establish recreation parks in ten localities in the state, was favorably received, Mr. Driver said. Approves Cotlnn Program Mr. Driver, who is a member of the powerful rules committee, expressed pride In the fact that he personally reported the Bankhead bill for the reduction of cotton acreage in the South, and the bill which removed the stigma of emergency legislation from federal uid for roads and placed that appropriation on a three year Instead of a one year basis. Three million dollars if federal -aid for roads Is ..ayaU^ifc-^Jtiy^r; Jor A«isr l £aj> Mr. Driver-sees in the delegation to the president of power to treat with other nations as to tariffs one of tile most epochal pieces of legislation ever enacted. For the first time in our history this country is on a par with other countries who have always been in a iwsition to regulate trade in relation [o changing conditions. Until our export markets, however, ore reopened, Mr. Driver sees in the administration policy of adjusting production to consumption a real ecoitomic advantage to the farmer, in which the tenant farmer and farm laborer will not suffer.

Twelve Members Captuvcc or Killed; Leader Wil Be Found When Death Hailed Speed Flyer WASHINGTON, June 28. (UP>- Tlie federal government 1ms smashed John Dillinger's murderous outlaw gang, although Dillinger himself remains at large. In the past two months picked agents ol the justice department and local authorities have run down, captured or killed 12 of Dll- llngtr's associates. The chief quarry, wanted lor a dozen killings, and three remaining henchmen so far have eluded them, but justice officials expressed certainty that they would be tracked down. Capture in St. Paul yesterday of Albert W. Rellly, who arranged medical treatment for Dillinger wren he was shot by federal men there in March, may develop new clues to the desperado leader's whereabouts. Whether the trail Is hot or cold at the moment hone would say, Federal agents finish their jobs first and talk afterward. Officials discount reports that Dillinger has participated in any recent western ban^: robberies in which he is supposed to have been seen. They believe he has gone into hiding, hoping the storm will blow over. But as far as the federal government, is-concerned the war. on Dillinger and his. kind, far fron blowing over, is really jus!,'begin- ning. With new laws and »225,000,000 of new funds, the justice department soon will iucreus; its .force lo 450 agents nnd arm them witli the most deadly weapons devised. Atty. Gen. Homer S. Gumming; under the new "reward fo: public enemies * law, 11 has placed a price of $10,000 on Dillinger and $5,000 on his trigger man. Lester M. Git- lls. alias George "Baby pace" Nelson. Rewards may soon b; offered for capture of John Hamilton and Homer Van Meter. Dillinger's other henchmen who are still at large.
