Perkins' Testimony,
As Samuel Untermyer. counsel fof
the committee, began to question him
about thos two companies, there was
much speculation among lawyers and
others present as to whether M.
Perkins' answers would give him im
munity from an possible government
prosecution .
Mr Perkins said the corporation
bought its own stock only, so far an
he knew, to be -old to employes un
der profit-sharing schemes.
"We never knew of the corporation
buying its own stock to protect It in
the market and know of no pools to
manipulate the market in steel stock,'
he said.
"Do you believe that directors
should be allowed to trade in the
stock of their own corporations on ad-'
vance information secured by them
through their connection with the cor
poration?" asked Mr. Cnterniyer
"1 do not.'' said Mr Perkins
"The steel corporation was the flrsl

Chicago, Tan. 15. Officials at de

a crusade against "crooks'' with a
known polite record which is expect

Detectives were ordered to prepare!
today lists of all thieves known to
them, from the "high class" bank
Mieak to the ordinary door mat thief !
Not only the names, but tho gen
eral habits and "hangouts " ol the
thieves are to be included in the
lists
An idea of how many names may
be handed In may be gained from uo
fact thai one pair of detectives last
niiilit prepared a list of 680 thieves
known to them. Allowing for dupli
cations It is expected that the 100
detectives at the bureau will furnish
at least 100 names each
Warrants will be placed in the
hands of the detectives with instruc
tions to have the crooks locked up
within 48 hours if possible
The move was decided on because of .
