The names of dangerous gunmen, bank robbers and escaped convicts flew from lip to ear as rumors spread and officers dropped guarded hints as to their identity.

An appropriation of $25,000,-000 to start the program would he made, but every person now under 55 would he required to contribute annually to the fund if he expected to be eligible for pension benefits later.

I He favors also a bill guaranteeing the principal of the home loan bonds and extending the authority of the home loan hoard to* make loans for modernization of homes. However, there is some question whether he will propose this in a separate message to congress or merely sanction a bill already proposed there. He has sent to the capitol a special report of an administration committee on ways of controlling the stock exchanges. An early conference with congressional leaders to decide on a policy is in prospect. Mr. Roosevelt wants action on this subject at this session as a fulfillment of the democratic party paltform. A special report by Secretary Roper on .the operation of the new securities law and recommending changes in it will be sent to the White House in a day or so for the decision of the president.

He was shot and killed as he and Bud Roberts, night watchman, surprised burglars at the door of a store. The body of Ed Clanton, one of the burglars, reputedly killed by one of his companions, for a large sum of money he supposedly had on his person, was claimed by a brother w’ho lives near here. Roberts said that his shots did not touch Clanton ,as he was killed by a smaller calibre pistol fired at close range.. Roy Dye, a farm youth who was kidnaped and whose auto was stolen by a fleeing companion of Clanton, told fiogers county officers the man boasted of killing him. Dye was released at Fort Smith yesterday morning after a wild night ride over twisting mountain roads.

Moore, or Carlin, wras wanted for a $24,000 jew’ei robbery and a $2,000 price had been set by federal officers for him and his pal, Clarence Hayes. Hayes, whose strong resemblance to Floyd probably gave rise to many false reports of the lat-ter’s activities, w’as killed some time ago by an Osage county posse. In addition to reports that Bradshaw w'as hiding at the Nela-goney ranch house, Rogers county officers said they believed he had taken part in the Chelsea affray and possibly w’as the man who shot down Clanton and escaped into Arkansas. Bradshaw was hunted in Tulsa a few’ days ago when the bank robber brothers, Clarence and Otis Eno, were arrested and sent to Kansas for trial, and a new search for him w’as under way last night here. Moore’s presence in the vicinity of Sapulpa gave rise to rumors that part of the jewelry he and Hayes took from a salesman from St. Louis near Broken Arrow’, 20 miles from Tulsa, might be cached there.

This right is given by tile constitution to members of the senate and Bouse while congress is in session, Long claimed.

The other suit charged Long with slandering Ansell in a speech on the floor of the senate. The libel action charged that Long circulated copies of tne Congressional Record containing the speech.
