Member Associated Press The Newspaper For The Home THURSDAY, JANUARY 6, 1949 Second Section Precedent Set In Opinions By Judge Bruce Rules In Favor Of Two Workmen Unable to Get A Transportation to Job In' three opinions handed, down today by Associate-Judge Oliver H. Bruce, Jr., the.Employment Security Sozrd of -Maryland was reversed in two cases and upheld in the third. Two of the cases were identical »nd' Judge Bruce set a precedent in his opinion. These .were the appeals of James Yia and -Charles D. Dickey for unemployment compensation as a re- lalt of not' being able to obtain •transportation 'to the Union Mining Company refractories plant at Jennings; 20 "miles from their residences. Facts Arc Identical In identical sets of facts the court ruled'in favor-of Via and Dickey in ^reversing" the board as follows:. "These are appeals by James Via *nd Charles D. Dickey from a decision- of the Employment. Security Board of Maryland, in which it denied them a review of a decision of -JL referee dated August 19, 1918,-in which the referee had found that the claimants had left their employment for good cause, but .were unavailable for wort. •• '. "It is the opinion of the court that the tesymony does not lead to the conclusion that the claimants were unavailable for employment. The claimants testified- at length and without contradiction that when their rider quit .work at' Jennings *na went to work elsewhere, thnt they then had no means of transportation from their homes to their place or 'employment, which was 20 miles away. They-further testified that they were unable to get board In the vicinity • of the plant, nor could they obtain a house in which to move. There was no public transportation available Sees No Difference The.court can see no difference ' between not having a job and being •unable to get transportation, board or a home near enough to a job. In either event, the men had no employment, which was no fault of theirs. "The court;can, therefore, arrive at no other conclusion than that the testimony does not support the finding, of .the board, and the decision must be reversed. "It is- thereupon, by the Circuit Court for Allegany county, ordered that the appeal in these, cases be and hereby are sustained and. the decision of the Employment'. Security Board ol Maryland is reversed." McHenry Lists. Income Needs County Farms ; . From $600 to Sl,500 Net Income Needed For Non-Farm Use . In working, out farm management Plans for 1949, county farmers will need -from $GOO to $1,500.'net profit to spend for persona) and non-farm use, 'according to -Ralph • F. McHenry, county farm agent.. McHenry listed these 'needs as household expenses,, sickness • costs- vacations and clothing. The cost will vary'according to-.the. size of the family and standard of living maintained. ' The figure listed will be needed after all-farm expenses, and .taxes have been paid, he added, i Of course, some farms. .Till 'yield 1 a larger net income than others but, the figures quoted .will pertain to the majority of Allegany .county! farmers, McHenry-said." : To abide by a good farm management pro;ram the farmers must sell their products so as to- yieV.I from 52,000 ;o $4,000 annually, he pointed-out Operations Cost 40 Per Cent Usual operating expenses 0:1 farms : take'-40 to 60 per cent of the gross | income. Crop 'acres handled' by one man using • horses "should be from 50 to CO and usint? tractors the acreage should be 80 to 120 Crop yields should be 20 to.30, pet cent above the county average. Livestock units for each'100 acres should range from 30. to .'JO. The livestock under this program would include mature milk cows, mature City -Officials To Attend Meetin'o'- . o..

Kimble Aain RECEIVE'JAYCEE-AWARDS—David Kauffmann, (left), local'at- torney, last night was presented the distinguished service, award, by- the Junior Association of'Commerce at an Ali'Ghan Shrine Country. Club dinner meeting. Others,'left to right, who. received awards are: O, B. Case, manager of the Allegany Ballistics • Laboratory of the Hercules Powder Company, as the outstanding b'oss; C. Wesley Blackburn, reporter for the Cumberland News, for his work as a labor reporter; and John M.,Robb, secretary of the Cumberland Charter Commission. The latter group received the good government award. The local papers and radio stations were also cited. Edward J. Ryan was counseel. for Via and Dickey. The third case" of Wilbur E. Fogle mgainst the Employment Security Board- was heard, with the court ruling In favor of the board. Ryan was Fogle's attorney.' The plaintiff iad appealed a decision of a referee « it he had quit work voluntarily d without good cause. Sales Tax Revenue MayBe Increased •Estimates of sales-tax revenues Jo- the current fiscal year may be revised upward, It was reported today . . James J. Lacy, State comptroller, said xhat early reports of the December sales volume indicated that it had been higher than had been tnricipated. -• ' . •. . If this proves to be correct, -he said, the estimate lor the year will "be revised • upward hr an effort to come as dose as possible to what the final collection figure will be. At present the estimate for the 1949 fiscal year, ending next June 30. stands at $27,500,000, A similar • estimate has been ' made for the 1950 fiscal period • for which the budget is' being prepared. Anr revision of these estimates will not be made until sales tax officials are in a position to compare total December sales' with sales for the same month last year and predict the. taxes that will- come Jn next month from these sales. It is felt that if the volume through today runs ahead of last year the likelihood that collections will recede materially in the next six months will be slight. .The October-November-December Christinas sales period provides the largest sales tax revenues of the year, with" the .Eastern season - the only remaining high period before the end of the fiscal year. Collections in November, now being received by the Retail Sales Tax Division, are .about five per cent above receipts on November sales last j-ear. Upward revision of the 1949 sales tax .estimate would, of course, increase the estimate of general func surplus, now- S25,498,755.04, by like amount. Former Local Teacher Gets College Post E.
