why he has not purchased liberty I
bonds in the amount of his quota.
Marckel has been solicited by three
members of the Vollmer committee
and has refused to buy bonds. It Is
itated he bought no bonds of the
third loan and when visited by the so
liciting committee this week he in
sulted the members of the committee
and definitely stated he did not In
tend to buy bonds."
The result of his conference with
the committee was that Marckel
shook loose Monday 83060 for liberty
bonds and will drop 8600 to the war
activities fund when called upon.
