As an example ot what may' ba looked for in building, Mr. Glascock pointed to Fresno, tho raltln cap ital, as an example ot what Callfor- nlavtowns will do this year to meet Jho domand for houses. In Fresno building trades, clttzons and civic organizations have started a 'cam paign to build a thousand new tiomes this year, and are going to build them.

This, ho said, was the general fooling In the east, and increased buying' Is beginning to stimulate business. Prisoner Says Little Devils in Clothing Cause Much Worry Little clinging devils Infest his clothing and cause him great annoy ance, says Joe Landry, colored boot black, who fired four shots from a revolver at Frank Washington dur ing a fracas Tuesday afternoon.

The officer ordered him to cease his ablutions and get Into bis clothing, but the bootblack showed great distaste for tbo garments, which he held at arm's length and declared to be infested with weo devils. No action "has been taken in the case. Authorities statod today that Landry would be kept" under obser vation tor a few- days and probably examined by a Junicy commission. ' While working is a bootblack at the Mecca poolroom Landry is said to have cut off tho sleeves, ot a new coat because, be said, the deVUs la them annoyed him.
