OF WALL CRASH
St. Louis, March 18. Search for
six persons missing and' supposed to
be under the wreckage of the St.
Louis Seed Company building was re
sumed today. Three men and dne

and cabinet disruption, came the al
most positive assurance today that

of finance, is placed on trial for the
murder of Gaston Calmette, editor of
It is a certainty that the defense
will be the "unwritten law." Maitre
Labori, one of the most noted attor
neys in France, has agreed to defend
Mme. Caillaux, "for the sake of hu
manity." He was a friend of Cal
mette, but he said' the fact that the
accused was a woman and without
friends led him to accept their case.
Though efforts will be directed to
ward showing justification for the
slaying of Calmette by Mme. Caillaux
in defense of her own name and to
shield her daughters, the airing of
political intrigues and the shaking of
the entire administration is promised
by the fight that will have to be made
to save Mme. Caillaux.
