ation 'tonight had the.thing most
necessary for its existence-money

lower bids.

to aid depositors and creditors of
insolvent banks shaping. themselves
before Senate banking sub-commit-

A Senate committee is also cosid-

for a system of banks to lend money
to home owners and builders but
it may find a good many obstacles
ahead of it.

The HIouse today discussed the
agricultural supply bill. -It was
amended to prohibit federal road
aid to states where convicts are
employed on the highways.
The House naval committee had
disposed, of the $616,250,000 con-

the best airship ever built.
