Whitmeyer Charges Penitentiary
(See Story on Page 1.)
JOLIET, Ill., March 21.-(A)-The
legislative committee investigating
conditions in the Stateville peni-
tentiary, which has been the scene
of rioting the past week, today
turned its attention to two minis-
ters of the gospel for further light
on the disorder.
Rev. George L. Whitmeyer, who
resigned as Episcopal chaplain at
the older of the two state prisons
and who made charges of brutality,
against the penitentiary adminis-
tration, was summoned to testify.
Rev. Eligius S. Weir, Catholic chap-
lain at Statevillo, the newer of the
two prisons, also was called. He has
expressed opinions at variance with
those of Mr. Whitmeyer.I
Warden Henry C. Hill, in testi-
fying Friday before the committee;
accused Mr. Whitmeyer of not be-
ing truthful in statements to news-
paper men about the prison. He
blamed the civil service system,1
which he said had sent him "crook-l

Slight Decrease in January Seen;

WASHINGTON, Mar. 21.-()---
Encouraged by new data placing
the number of unemployed in Jan-
uary at 6.050,000 but showing more
recent signs of business improve-
ment, relief agencies plugged along
today in their efforts to keep job-
lessness at a minimum.
Secretary Lamont estimated that
number of persons were out of
work, able to work and looking for
work the first month of the year.
He based ;is figure on two reports
simultaneously issued by the census
One gave revised unemployment
totals for the 1930 census taken
last April as 2,249,062 out of a 122,-
755,056 population. The other was
a special January, 1931, unemploy-
ment count covering 19 cities with
a population of 20,638,981 which
showed 1,930,666 hunting work.
Both these unemployment totals
include only those seeking jobs.
Since the special January census
was made, Lamont said, there "has
been evidence of a slight but un-
mistakable improvement in the em-

than 13,000 manufacturing estab-

of 1.4 per cent in the number of

pared with January. In addition,
further evidence of increased em-

by a gain of 7.5 per cent in the
volume of wage pay.;ments of these
manufacturing establishments, in-
dicating a decrease of part-time
work and an expansion of opera-

next week, it was said yesterday.
The tangle in the county's finan-
cial affairs came up several weeks
ago when the finance committee of
the board ordered county treasurer'
Frank K. Ticknor to withhold the
March checks of officials involved.
Conferences between local officials
and Lansing authorities resulted
Friday in a ruling by the atorney-
general upholding the legality of
the 1907 salaries act and ruling
void the change in salaries made in
1928 by the supervisors.
However, checks of officials, the
sheriff, county clerk, treasurer,
register of deeds, undersherilt,
deputy sheriffs, .and deputies in
county offices, will be based on the
figures provided in the 1907 act,
Albert J. Rapp, prosecutor, said
Means of straightening out the
difficulty were discussed from every
angle with the attorney-general,
Rapp said. He indicated that the
finance committee would meet
next week to discuss the affair.
