den McCatl'a testimony rlative-to the solicitir-i; of funds from the New York

"My attention has Sn called to certain testimony, raid to have been trlven
to-day by Jlr. John A. McCall. while a witness before the lneurar.ee Investiga
tion Committee. In reply to Mr. Hughes's question whether he thought that in
14 the interests of the policy holders were so seriously endangered that the
company ought to contribute.'
-It fa erloeat that Mr. MeCall was laaorlaK aaaer great exriteaaeat la
