WASHBURM- NOV 1,000 Feet of New Sidewalk Is to Be the WPA Charge Is Only $14 Per 50 Feet—Property Owners Signing Up BUILD DRIVEWAYS T HE bulwark of the American republic—her middle class- is disappearing, \ve are told in a news dispatch yesterday which was based on a new book by Lewis Corey. century ago, Mr. Corey said, 80 per cent of America's population derived its income from the ownership of property. Today, only 12 per cent of the people depend upon property-ownership. Stating it from another angle, Mr. Rllllf HV thP WPA A°ccntury ago only 20 per cent of LlUllt WJ MIC Tl I r\ om . pcop]e dcpcndcd on a job for a living. Today, 80 per cent of them depend on salaries or wages. We have no reason to dispute Mr. Corey's figures. He is thc author of two well-known books, "Thc Decline of American Capitalism" and "The House of Morgan." In fact, the people themselves would have guessed pretty close to thc truth without looking at Mr. Corey's figures. We used to bo almost exclusively an agricultural people—and we arc no longer that. Industry has gathered thousands into great cities for thc purposes of mass production of goods. It has separated much more than half of America from the land—and, as Mr. Corey shrewdly points out, it has furthermore separated them from thc idea that actual ownership of a share of thc tangible goods of the world is necessary for their comfortable Support. XXX We have in this brief statement the whole kernel of thc problem which is confronting America today—the problem of unemployment insurance, old- age pensions, and so forth. For, while men may live comfortably on a salary divorced from property ownership, they can not live securely. A new fear has crept across Amer- ica—thc fear of millions who gambled on jobs in tho propertyless machine era, and now find old ago approach-. Iri£'-With* nothing in< iront of them to tie to and nothing behind them more substantial than a record of good work well 'done. This is the first panic to bring out that fear in our country. There were financial crashes, and unemployment, riots in 1873, in the 1890's, and in Material Cost, Paid by Owner, Is Only 9 Cents Per Square Foot Contract for construction of 1,000 feet of ncw sidewalk for Hope is expected to be signed by thc end of this week with the cost to the property owner only $14 per bO running feet. Four property owners had signed up Wednesday for more than one third of thc 1,000 feel. Other properly owners were expected to complete arrangements this week for construction of ncw sidewalks. Thc Works Progress Administration (WPA) is building sidewalks in front of homes at only ?14 per 50 running loot, which covers thc property owners share for a concrete walk four feet wide and four inches thick.

The agreement, thc dispatches said, would obligate the signatories to maintain armed forces in thc Orient to preserve peace there. Japanese Cautious TOKYO, Japan—(/P)—Police forbade newspapers Tuesday to publish anything concerning military forces "which may be sent to China" except in official statements, indicating the possibility of armed pressure in the deepening Sino-Japanesc crisis. A foreign office spokesman said Japan contemplated no military action at Shanghai because of anti- Japanese incidents for the present.

The ages of tho children ranged from a few months to 22 years. Cunningham was burned in an effort to warn his children of the blaze, which was discovered about 1 a. in., but his wife escaped unharmed.

Ten masked and armed men forced two officers to surrender Ernest Collins, 15, and Benny Mitchell, 16, who allegedly confessed attacking the girl and throwing her body inta a creek. Fulton Negro Is Hit-and-Run Victim Quietly and efficiently the corner has been turned aljnost before we knew it. In a matter of months,-flying around thc world will have become not the daring stunt of an ace flyer, but a mere matter of buying a ticket. Sixty Hours to Manila On its first Manila flight, the China Clipper will carry no paying passengers, but shortly thereafter, as two more sister ships come into the service and further tests have been added to already exhaustive preparations, thc mere buying of a' ticket will take you frim thc Golden Gate to Manila in 60 hours, and very shirtly thereafter, six hours farther on to China, probably to Canton, Efforts are being made to connect this ncw American line direct from Manila to both the British lines at Singapore and the Dutch lines at Surabaya, Java. But in the meantime, when tho American line is extended to Canton, it will be very close to connection with an existing British line now running between Hong Kong and Singapore. Network Over Europe This short gap once closed, a magnificent array of almost parallel British, Dutch, and French airways swings west across India and the Near East to Europe. That continent is already well net-worked with Russian, German, French, Dutch, and British lines. Once in Europe, choice can be made between thc German dirigible and seadrome lines and a French line across the South Atlantic to Natal, Brazil. Here you connect with Pan- American's well-tried system to Miami. And once back in thc United States, the whole network of well- developed American airways is at your disposal for the flight back to San Francisco, completing the circuit of thc globe with no more preparation than is required by sitting down with an air traffic expert, figuring out the Gnr.Kn, Anchor and Coin Hrobs.
