of the money trust committee, de
manding that he be given a war
rant for the arrest of Rockefeller.
Pujo immediately went into
conference with Jerry South,
clerk of the House, and was clos

South suggested that the judi
ciary committee be requested to
report" a resolution citing Rocke
feller for wilful evasion of ser
vice and authorizing his arrest.
Pujo then sent for Judge Crisp,
Speaker Clark's parliamentarian,

He wasn't very successful; and
always had to be applying to his
father for money. '
Being an independent sort of a
fellow, the son didn't like this,
and so he decided to come to
America and make his fortune.
He landed in Chicago four
years ago, and began to find out
that it was one thing to dream
of making one's fortune, and an
other to do it.
For a time he worked at St.
Luke's hospital, and got on fairly
well, with the help of a few re

Then he met Minnie Hamson,
