*, MONDAY, JANUARY 3, 103S. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNtiUjSVILLE, PAGB THRJ3K NEWSPAPERS GET CREDIT FOR SUCCESS !s No Better Coverage / Asserts National Advertiser. BACKBONE OF SALES EFFORT "Effective newspaper advertising and a policy of consistently maintaining fine quality is the combination which is primarily responsible for the continued success or Salada Tea." said Gerald R. Larkin, president of the Salada Tea Company at J the annual sales convention held at ' 1he Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City recently. "Of course, there are other contributing factors but newspaper advertising is really the backbone of our sales efforts around which all other advertising and merchandising activities are built." Summed up in these remarks is a policy of many years standing based on the fact that everybody is interested in the news, cither local or national or both, and the only place to find the news and all the news is in the newspaper. Advertising appearing in connection with current news items is bound to be seen by a great majority of the people. "Actually," said Mr. Larkin, "the coverage of newspapers is so complete that it would be difficult, if not impossible, to find a locality anywhere in this country which is beyond the influence o£ some newspaper. "Every branch of the Salada Tea Company will finish the year with a healthy increase in sales over 1936. This fact, in itself, is convincing evidence of the effectiveness of advertising a consistently fine product . through the medium of newspapers." Question of Whether Courts Are Bigger Than ers PooB Decided Numb Local Man Ordered To Pay Costs in 30 Days UNIONTOWN, Jan. 3.--On a verdict of guilty with recommendation ot extreme mercy by the jury, James Palladino, Conncllsvillc, arrested by r Enforcement Officer Jacob J. Fiscus on a charge of violating the liquor control act, was sentenced to pay costs of $31.90 within 30 days. The defendant was tried for having permitted another to consume on the premises a beverage that was in violation of the malt license held by Palladino who, also, was charged with having sold certain beverages ""in violation o£ the provisions of his license. Harry Varndell, Jumonvillc road, who was found guilty of convertins to his own possession a bull, "Billy," belonging to the defendants mother, Mrs. Louisa Varndell, who instituted the action and prosecuted her son, was sentenced to pay costs of $47.46, a fine of S50 and spend 60 days in county jail. Despite the seriousness of the charge, the court showed leniency because of tho tragic circumstances which were revealed .it Varndell's trial when tho family, apparently divided, took the stand against the son whom, they admitted, ha worked on WPA projects and had used his wages to support them ·_ when they had no other income. The lad testified his mother hat given him an incubator that he had traded for a cow which, later, gave birth to "Billy, the bull." The mother maintained the incubator belonged to her and that she had not given It to her son so that any fnide-ln on it would naturally be her property. UNIONTOWN, Jan. 3.--Whether .he ('numbers" pools in Fayctte county fire bigger |than the courts or whcjther the courts are bigger than the rackets was) the question decided when wholesale sentences were meted out by two judges in a parade of lottery law violators before the bench on prosecutions brought by State troopers. "We could not condone the flagrant violations going on daily in Uniontown and Fayctte county," said Judge Harry A. Cottom who, today became president judge of Fayette county courts with retirement of Judge Thomas H. Hudson. "These numbers pool operators and their henchmen openly flouted the laws," he said, "and they had to be taught that the courts are still bigger than any racket that attempts to flourish in our community." With, this statement. Judge Cottom placed the stamp ot approval on the sentences meted out last week by Judges Hudson and Dumbauld and indicated that his future policy on the bench, ns president judge, will be heartily in support of efforts being made to stamp out the rackets. Only State Police have continued to make arrests in the "numbers' game in Fayctte county and onl troopers appeared before the judges as prosecutors ot the culprits taken nto custody for violating the State ottcry laws. Judge Dumbauld, in his charge to jury which, was hearing evidence n a "numbers" case at the Dccem- acr criminal court term, cxplainec hat it was not a matter of persona feeling or whether the jurors approved of the "numbers" rackets or saw no harm in plnying the "num- jer:" "It is against the law," he said 'If the State wants to make lottco legal there must be laws passed to ;hat effect--but we have nothing to do with that here. As it stands, to operate a lottery now is against thi law and you must decide, on thi e\'idcnco you have, whether (he de fondint is guilty of any such violation " Rumors of an alleged "protection ring" in Fayctte county also seeped into the cases of "numbers" defendants. The court interrogated Tod Genovese as to whether he had slated he was "paying protection." The pool operator denied making such a statement or that he ever paid for anything like that. 'A few small fry may be taking money for protection." one high court official said, "but I believe it is generally understood by this time that no single individual or group of individuals con guarantee protection for violators when they are found Preserved 20 Years.

Willie--(Who was sent to sec whether uncle was asleep)-"Yeah. mnmr=all but his. nose!" Spcolnl to Tho Courier. HARR1SBURG, .Ian 3.--Attorney General Charles J. Margiotti has urned over the future of the untiicd defendants in thn Frank C. Monaghan murder case to District Attorney Andrew T. Park, of Allegheny county: In a letter to the district attorney, Margiotti said: "We are content to leave the dis- HJsition of these untriod cnsos to jour sound judgment and discretion." Monaghan, a Uniontown hotel- deeper, died after being questioned nbout the stabbing of .· county dctec- ,ive. The state charged ne had been beaten to death in the Fayette county courthouse. Twelve persons were indicted in the case, seven charged with murder nnd five accessories. Only thicc-- former State Policcmon Anthony Sanute and Stacy Gundcrman and District Attorney James A. Reilly, of Fayette county--were tried. All were charged with murder. Sanutp on a directed verdict by Supreme Court Justice George W. Maxey was acquitted, Gunderman was convicted of second degree murder and sentenced to a year less one day. He was paroled last week. Reilly was acquired., Margiotti, m what he said was a reply to Park's request for information as to what was to be done in the untried cases, added in the letter: "It has been urged ay some that the remaining cases should be nolle pressed because o£ the expense of the trials would be a great buidcn on Fayette county. This is without merit if the interests ot justice require a trial. "Others urge that a conviction could not be sustained under the law as declared by Justice Maxcy in the Sanute and Gundcrman cases. We do not agree with this contention, but believe that the evidence presented in the cases tried is sufficient in volume and quality to warrant and sustain convictions. "Some urge," Margiotti declared, "that a conviction could not now be had ot any of the remaining defendants because of the Jesuits of the trials already held. There may be some merit to the thought that this condition, that is, that no one could now be convicted in Allegheny county, has been brought about, not by the belief that the defendants were innocent, but r.ither as a result of the ruling in the Sanute case, the nominal sentence imposed upon Gunderman and the acquittal of Reilly. "We give due consideration to this last suggestion. Fairness and justice require a further consideration. Since the throe principal defendants nave been exonerated nnd allowed to go .free would it bo right and just to prosecute the ones less culpable who were only acting as assistants to the three major defendants, even though they were to be convicted? "The commonwealth is not seeking victims. It is only endeavoring to do justice m all cases. If it has failed in this regard, it has not been the fault of those who represented thc commonwealth, but due to circumstances over which the commonwealth has no control." UNIONTOWN, Jan. 3.-Joseph P. Burke, Uniontown, charged by Henry DeCarlucci with larceny by bailee and fraudulent conversion in the amount ot $75 which he is alleged to have converted to his own use, was directed to pay costs of $58.40 nnd make (restitution of the $75 in monthly payments of $20 each to begin Januaiy 15. Meanwhile, the defendant was ordered released on paiole for the length of time required to make the payments. Complying with'the not guilty ver- dltc in which the jury placed the costs on the prosctutrix, Judge Dumbauld ordered Mrs. Frieda Dean, Kcistcrville, to pay costs of $57.20, furnish security within 10 days to pay the same and be committed to the custody of Ihe sheriir until the sentence is complied with. Mrs. Dean had charged her daughter, Leona Woodward, and the latter's sweetheart, Edward Cable, with two counts of misconduct which, she alleged at the trial, took place in the boy's automobile parkcfl near the Cable home in Kcisterville, a few doors from the Dean home. Both the boy and girl, in their own defense, denied the charges with the daughter accusing the mother of "hating" the neighbor lad "with whom she had been keeping company for-"abput'a year. Earl Black, Waltcrsburg, prosecutor in a case ignoicd by the December grand jury, was sentenced by Judge Thomas H. Hudson to pay costs of $56.38. Black had prcfcrrec charges of assault and battery anc aggravated assault and battery against Vito ' Capanna. The granc jury returned an ignoramus, placing the costs on the prosecutor. As the result of a nol pros action on charges of assault and battery and aggravated assault and battery preferred against him by Mary Wynn the defendant, Edgar Amalong, Masontown, was directed by Judg Hudson to pay costs of $25 02 in thi case to dispose of it on court records Elsie Lidey, Lcith, who charged John Gctsy with assault and battery and aggravated assault and buttery m an information that was ignore by the December grand jury whicl placed costs on the prosccutrix, wa ordered by Judge Hudson to pay thi costs in 10 monthly installments o $7.50 each, beginning February 1.

'Murderous Waste Seen In ^Cutting Yule Trees SEATTLE, Jan. 3.--Commercial Christmas tree cutting has grown to proportions of "murderous extravagance" and Dr. L. McDonough Gould, Seattle physician, wants to ;et up a society to curb it. Dr. Gould said today he favored a "got-your-own-Christmas-tree society" to prevent waste of thousands of young trees by "brokers who t .' A balance, according to accounts filed, showed $3,95861 which was deposited in lire in the Cisse Dnis- parmio, Rome, Italy. According to the laws of Italy, the money could nol. be transmitted from the country. B,r order of the court, agreement was. reached whereby counsel fees were paid the two attorneys and Senator Anthor.y Cavol- cantc representing the accountant, a portion deposited in closed banks here was awarded to BuCsmawhilc the remainder VMS distributed among relatives in Euiope. Judge Dawson also distributed the estate of John Buttner, Gillcspie Hollow, Washington township, following the provisions of a last will made May 11, 1936. David H. Binns was named executor. First and final accounts showed a balance for distribution of $1,942.37. to sell them at corner stands." "I am not campaigning for "a treeless Christmas," he explained, "bu my quarrel is with the murderous extravagance of Christmas tree stands that breaks out in mid-December. We have fish and garni laws,, but no conservation law for thi protection of our young trees. "Hundreds of thousands of little trees are cut down and exhibited fo sale and only a few thousand ari sold. "The remaining eight out of 10 ar burned or otherwise discarded afte December 25." Dr. Gould said Michigan, Main and New Hampshire have been "sys tematically cleaned out" of snm evergreens in vast areas by VChrist- mas treo brokers" and he predicted the same fate for Washington. The state collects a cent a tree on those sent to Eastern and Southern markets. · "Stop buying your Christmas tree each year," Dr. Gould said. "Go out in the woods and · cut it yourself. Thousands of trees actually would be saved if each family were to cut its own, and you experience a little of the good old Christmas spirit in getting your own tree in this mad bedlam of Christmas commcrcializa- News of Tri-Town Community DAfiVSON, Jan. 3.--Mrs. G.
