M NT women's from end mirror, now $1850 $1095 .$ 795 Priced 1960 be Indian Creek Community Park Seen; Relief Workers Big Help In Project The new 45-acre community park in Saltlick Twp., near Indian Head, being built under the sponsorship of the Indian Creek Valley Lions Club, was recently inspected by representatives of the Fayette County Board of Assistance. Plans call for · the new recreational site'to be dedicated and opened to public, civic and church groups next summer. Work on the park is being done by recipients of assistance under the Relief Works Program, as provided by the Pearson Act. They receive credit at the rate of $1.25 an hour, applied against reimbursable assistance received. Participating in the inspection were C. E. Hess, county chairman of the Relief Works Program; Atty. Chad L. John, county board chairman; John Trent, board member; Cecil C. Connelly, executive d i r e c t o r ; William Dienes, clerical supervisor, and Ralph Brooks, clerk. They were met at the Community Center in Indian Head by directors and officers of the Lions Club and taken on a tour of inspection of the new park. Afterwards they said they were" impressed with what has been accomplished since the project was started June 20. Practically ail undergrowth has been removed, roads have been built, outdoor ovens constructed and grass planted. A member of the Lions Club told the Board of- Assistance members, "This is a concrete example of what the Relief Works Program can accomplish if members of civic organizations are willing to take the initiative. After the tour, dinner was served to the Board of Assistance representatives and Lions Club directors and officers at the home of Mrs. Dix in Davistown. Earl Kemp, president of the service club, was master of ceremonies. Each of the Board of Assistance representatives was introduced and spoke briefly. The Community Park is near ndian Head, ta Saltlick Twp. It s on Route 711, a road which had Is o r i g i n in the 18th Century, when what was formerly a path through the woods, became the beginning of a route used to drive cattle and hogs, and carry supplies to American troops stationed at Fort Ligonier. The stream, Indian Creek, derives its name from the large number of Indians who occupied this locality. The township of Saltlick was named for the large chunks of salt which were placed in numerous locations for the many deer roaming the forests. The park, which the Indian Creek Valley Lions Club has selected to build, will 'be a major asset and of much value to the community, a leader said last night. Much of the natural beauty has been 'retained, and several man-made items have been added to enhance the scenic beauty. There is a "split - level" aspect to the park -- the "split-level" having been made by nature.

A small stream flows through a gulley on one side of the park, and a profusion of mountain laurel lines the gulley on both sides. Tables are being erected on this first level along with outdoor ovens. Plenty of shade is provided by the tall trees that have been left standing for this purpose. Varied Task A road has also been made down to the second level. This too, is a flat portion of land, on which will be erected tables and ovens. All the undergrowth, which has been rampant for many years, has been removed, and the surface planted in grass. Indian Creek flows listlessly at the edge of this level. The water at this spot is very shallow, thus rendering it safe for small children. This is one of the most beautiful spots in the park, especially at a time when the setting sun filters its rays through the trees, and reflects on the water. There is a type of solitude to be found in a locale of this sort. It is a personification of the old lines, "A quiet nook by a rippling brook." In the near future, it is the hope of the organization to build a swinging bridge over Indian Creek, and a Urge acreage on the opposite side will be added to the park. A lot of natural beauty is to be found there, including ground pine and mountain laurel, as well as shade trees. In addition, to the picnic facilities, which have already been mentioned, there will also be a tennis court and volleyball court. It is planned to use sections of the land on the borders of the C1 a u d e E. Bradley, gener chairman, said the festival wi wind up next Monday night wi crowning of a queen and th queen's ball.

Approval of similar resolution Motor Industry Holds Key *,' ··· ' To Prospects For Business By JACK LEFLER NEW YORK (AP) - Automak ers started rolling in high gea this week as other segments o he economy waited anxiously t earn whether, motor industry ac ivity will spark a general busi ness upturn. The car industry holds a vita cey to prospects for the balance if the year. If the 1961 models go over wel fith the public and production i ligh, the output of steel, copper [lass, tires, automobile textile: ind other materials w o u l d hi timulated. Output of cars this weel umped to an estimated 86,00 rom 52,753 last week and 62,715 the comparable 1959 week. Al f the manufacturers were turn ng out 1961 models. They are de oting 43.5 per cent of their out ut to compacts. Estimates of production for the inal three months of the year ange all the way from 1.2 mil on cars lo 2 million. The sales picture looked gooc n the first 10 days of Septem- er, when dealers sold 125,500 ew cars, up 10 per cent from year ago. This put a dent in he inventory of unsold care, ·nich stands at about 825,000. The steel industry still was 'aiting for sizable orders from carmakers, who have big in- entories of the metal. The trade publication Iron Age loomily said October may have be written of! as a recovery month for steel. The traditional big steel users re not buying steel in any great uantity," it explained. Steel production edged up to an stimated 52.7 per cent of capaci- / from 49.2 per cent last week. The strike against the nation's rgest railroad system, lhn Penn- 'Ivania, ended after a 12-day out of Russian Premier Khrush chev's visit to the United Na tions. A total of 12,071,740 shares o stock was sold during the wee! compared with 10,852,200, the hoi iday-shortened preceding weel and 12,222.297 a year ago. The volume of bond sales rose to i 735,000 from $15,808,000 the pre ceding week. Volume a year ago was $31,765,000. Personal income of Americans inched up to a record annual rate of $407.6 billion in August but the $300 million rise over July was the smallest month-to-month advance since February. The Federal Reserve Board's index of industrial production 'for August declined by one percentage point to 109 per cent of. the 1957 average. Machine tool builders, exhibiting their new lines at an exposition in Chicago, predicted an increase in orders this fall despite price increases. This industry is a good barometer of business, anc if the forecasts pan out it would be a healthy sign. Hurricane Donna took a hefty swipe at property and crops all :he way from Florida to Maine. The Insurance Information Insti- ;ute estimated damage to insured property alone at $135 million. The total is many times that. Winds destroyed an estimated !30 million worth of the Florida citrus crop. But growers said they relieved the lesser harvest would result in higher prices, and dol- ar return might exceed l a s t year's. The hurricane and unusually lot weather in the Midwest kept myers at home and retail trade 'ell three to seven per cent be- ow a year ago. Briefly around the business scene: The nickel cigar may have been saved; scientists have developed by two more states would--ac cording to most legal authorities- provide the necessary two third That is where Pennsylvania en ters the picture. In 1943 the legislature approve a resolution applying for a U. S convention on the tax question Gov. Edward Martin prompt vetoed it, thereby posing a leg« problem that has never bee solved. The resolution was never fo warded to Congress, hence Penn sylvania is not counted among th existing list. But the legal questio at the time of the veto--which now recurred--is: DM the gover nor have the right to veto a eral Assembly resolution? A ruling by'Atty. Gen. Franci Shunk Brown, June 9, 1915, helc that the governor's signature was lot necessary on legislative reso lutions that did not make law o commit funds. The ruling ha never been superseded. That raises the question whether the resolution still stands in spite of the Martin veto? If it does and the resolution is forwarded tc Congress, then the nation migh le very close to having a consti utional convention to limit taxa :ion. The Pennsylvania resolution is similar to that passed in the otheL states. It urged repeal of the 16th Amendment to the U. 3. Constitu ion that allows graduated incoim axes and would substitute a ceil ng of- 25 per cent on all federa axes, excise, income, property or thers. In vetoing the resolution, Martin "ontended such action should no )e taken."that might hamper thi government in the due prosecution f the war (World War ID." Martin vetoed the resolution af er the legislature had adjourned n 1943. Consequently, there was 10 immediate move to override lis objection. In the subsequent legislatures he situation was forgotten. However, in other regions over tie years the problem has been brought up with the result the list f states has grown to its present otal. Approval of such a resolution by ne more state could raise the 'hole question all over again in Pennsylvania. The key to the question is ·nether Martin's veto is valid, inee the prospects are uncertain what the 1961 legislature would do bout a similar proposal. ANCIENT PORT Nantes, the ancient French Sea- ort, is on the Loire River and 30 miles from the river's outlet on he Bay of Biscay.
