Relief Load Drops The relief load dropped to 28,400 cases In September and tho emergency relief commission Is spending an average of 11,800,000 monthly. »' "Wo should have $13,300,000 lott by January i,'l937," Pomeroy said, "and this would permit an expenditure of $2,260,000 during the remain- Ing six months of the fiscal year. "Wo should not need that much, however, as t, don't expect the load to reach 50,000 cases even at the winter peak. . .'.-'."Conditions are getting better. People are getting employment." A year ago, before tho WPA program was started, there were 200,000 cases on direct relief In California, Pomeroy said. Now, there are' 157,000 cases receiving various kinds of aid. Of that number, 100,000 are handled by WPA project*, 27,000 by other federal relief agencies, and less than •30,000 > .by. the state. Five Counties Get Most Ninety .per cent*qf the, direct relief load exists In the five most populous counties. The remaining 10 per cent is scattered through 28 .counties, and there is no state roliof problem • In 25 other subdivisions, Pomeroy reported. The average direct relief payment Is $30.20 a month, families receiving $36.42 and-single persons $20.17. AUTO CAUSES NEW ILLNESS (Untied Prett Leatei VHre) PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 29^-The "speed age" has given medical science and civilization something new to contend with—the "steering-wheel heart." ' The term Is used to describe injuries suffered when a steer- inc.wheel jams against a driver's chest such as usually happens .when a car plows into the automobile ahead, or runs half way up a pole. Dr. Claude S. Beck, heart specialist, told a medical meeting here that such injuries, even, though apparently not serious, may bruise many hearts to such a degree that temporary weakness can be felt. 3 City Officials EnterGuilt Plea (Anoeiatetl Preti Letued Vf(re) OABJLANU, Sept. 29. — JPornior Slayor Hans W.

New Auto Designs Ate Being Guarded No other Industry takes the leabor- ate precautions that the automobile Industry does to bottle up secrets of Its new products, Detroit Auto Reports said this week, and this fall has been no exception. "Companies, realizing: that information of new development can adopt a number of subterfuges to hinder the sale of current models, j conceal their plans. Orders for a I .part never give any more details than Is absolutely necessary, leav-! Ing each department in the dark' on what the other Is doing. Design i rooms are closely guarded. Test cars travel at night under the disguise of old bodies. "In keeping the complete nature of its 1937 program from employes as a wife-guard against leaks, one company In tho quality group that Is planning a radical departure this year Htarted three different motors down the "line." Only one had the approval of executives, but few understood which of the three. The result Is that while many rumors regarding tho product have been circulated, a select group alono knows what Is in the wind."
