Green Says Reduction of U. S. Expenses Shouldn’t Be in That Direction. fa striving to reduce Government expenditures, the next session of Con gress should not do so at the expense of aid to the unemployed, in the opinion of Senator Green, Democrat, of Rhode Island. Feeding and clothing those in need la a paramount obligation, the Senator said. He expressed the view, however, that plans to bring the budget into balance at the next session should ) include efforts to put through a Gov amment reorganization program. The Rhode Island Senator, who has just returned to the Capital for a few days, suggested it might be desirable to dispose of some of the more press ing legislative problems before Janu ary, but had no information as to whether Congress will be called into session before the regular meeting date. „ The bill to regulate w ages and hours f in industry and farm legislation loom as major issues early in the next session, Green said.

TYPIST SET FREE •IN TELLER’S DEATH Gertrude O’Keefe Cleared in New York Shooting After Hearing. E7 the Associated Press. NEW YORK. September 30 —Miss Gertrude O’Keefe, 37-year-old Wall Street typist, was freed of a first de gree murder charge yesterday in con nection with the slaying of George O. Prank, New York Stock Exchange clearing hou& teller. The charge was dropped In Pelony Court when Magistrate Charles Solo mon, after a 90-minute hearing this morning on the State's attempt to build up a case of circumstantial evi dence, declared there was “nothing in the law’’ on which he could hold her for the grand jury. The sallow-cheeked defendant, whom Prank had addressed as “Dear Goddess” in a series of 178 love let ters written to her during his seven years’ courtship, smiled broadly when Magistrate Solomon dismissed the charge. » Miss O’Keefe still faced a charge of violation of the Sullivan law against possession of fire arms, as an after math of the discovery by police of a .32-caliber revolver in her drab fur nished room in Brooklyn. She was released in $1,000 bail on the gun charge. It was a weapon or similar caliber that sent a bullet into the brain of the handsome, gray-haired Wall Street teller at 1:15 o'clock last Tues day morning—a few hours after Frank and Miss O'Keefe had quarreled bit terly over her refusal to return the voluminous letters he had writen her before his affections cooled. Ballistics expert* established, how ever. that the murder weapon was an automatic pistol, whereas Miss O'Keefe’s gun was a revolver. From the time of her arrest, through 30 hours of police questioning, Miss O’Keefe admitted that she had ‘‘more provocation and more justification than anybody on earth for killing George Frank,” but maintained her Innocence.
