White Patrol Car To Remind Drivers Of 50-Mile L i m i t Alleged Robbers Held for Court- No Bail Allowed H E F L I N NOT TOLD OF DEFEAT UNIONTOWN. Jan. 6.--As an added warning to motorists who stretch or break the State Jaws, a large white car with signs of "Pa. Motor Police" plastered on front, back and both sides, has been put into service in Faycttc county. The conspiclous automobile will serve as a dire warning. Behind it often may be other machines manned by officers who will nab the violators, speed them to the nearest Justices' offices or present them with a ticket.' The white car plan is another move to keep blood oft the county highways. The station of police here now has lour cars and six motorcycles, classed as the best equipment in the State as compared to the size of its force. Surprise For Minister And Wife Marks Golden Wedding Anniversary SCOTTDALE, Jan. 6.--On Saturday, January 1, Rev. and Mrs. W. V. Bamhart celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their marriage. It was on Sunday evening, January I, 1888, that they were wed in the First United Brethren Church at Wayncs- boro by Rev. D. R. Burkholder, church pastor. Since the fall of 1894 Rev. and Mrs. Barnhart have given their lives to the ministry of the Gospel in Allegheny Conference of United Brethren Church. They made a host of friends as they moved from one charge to another. The couple live in Scottdalc and have served Westmoreland charge, preaching at Mount Ncbo . and Owcnsdale, since 1931. On New Year Eve, arriving at the Owensdalc church a little late they found it full of people. Someone started the song, "Happy Anniversaries to You," the congregation joined in the singing, and Rev. E. G. Sawyer, pastor, of the United Brethren Church at Mount Pleasant, acting as chairman, met the folks in the aisle, and escorted them to the platform. All was a surprise to Rev. and Mrs. Barnhart. Rev. Sawyer acted as chairman ·while a'short program was carried oul. Miss Edna Shallenberger was at the piano. Two quartet numbers were given by the Misses Fletcher and the Misses Snyder. Mrs. Raymond Elder sang a solo. Roy Ansel gave an appropriate address on fundamentals of a happy marriage. Jefferson King led in prayer nnd Allen Shallenberger read a letter from the L. H. Rush family of Syracuse, N. Y., to Mr. and Mrs. Barnhart. Then came the presentation of flowers from the Sunday school and the Rush family of Syracuse. Other gifts were given at the same time. When this .'program concluded. Miss Elinore Younkin invited all to the social rooms for refreshments. Among those sitting at the guests' table were some of the oldest men nnd women and a number of the official family of the church. Two large wedding cakes were presented to Mr. and Mrs. Barnhart. On the morning of the New Year members of the Immediate family gathered at the home included: Childrc.1 of a daughter who died a few years ago, Pearly and Ruth; Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Barnhart and daughter, Catherine, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Barnhart, son, William, and daughter, Barbara, all of Mcadvllle and Cochranton, Pa.; and Miss Leila Barnhart of Pillsburgh, a sister of Rev. Bamhart. $956 in Fines Paid to County By Numbers Men UNIONTOWN, Jan. 6.--Fayctte county was richer by $956 today as a result of fines paid for four numbers men sentenced by Judge Thomas H. Hudson last Tuesday as a penalty for their part in the operation of the I/annon pool. When fines and costs were paid through Defense Attorney E. J. McDaniel, however, the $1,000 fine as- [ scsscd to John R. "Doc" Lanon by the court was not paid, it was learned. Those whose fines were paid resulting in the reduction of county jail senlences were: Joseph Sansonc, reduced from one year to six months: R. H. Hickman, from six to three months; Nick Rulli, from one year to six months; and Angelo Robertucci, Conncllsvillc, from one year to six months. . Lnnnon, as confessed head of the pool, was sentenced to serve 18 months in the Allegheny county workhouse and to pay a fine o£ $1,000. If Lannon's fine and costs are paid, the court ruled, he will be paroled from the workhouse at the end of nine months. Meanwhile, Sheriff Thomas R. Aubrey's ofllce has started the removal of others sentenced on numbers racket charges from the county jail. On January 1, Carlton Smith and James Dominick of the Ted Genovese pool were transported to Blawnox to begin workhouse terms to which they were sentenced one week ago fay Judge Horatio S. Dumbauld. Scheduled to leave for the workhouse today were Norman Howard with a one year sentence behind the bars and Carmen "Kay',' Fans, who received a similar sentence. Sheriff Aubrey said today that the other prisoners including Lannon and Gcnox'cse would be removed at the first opportunity. The office, he said, has been slightly handicapped by illness and official business. E. H. McClelland, warden of the county jail, reported that countless relatives of the prisoners flock to the jail every day in an effort to visit with the men who arc to spend several months behind the bars in Allegheny county. Removal of the first numbers men to Blawnox would indicate, it is said, that strongly rumored reports of efforts being made to keep the prisoners In the county, have failed. If all fines and costs are paid by the various pools, the county will receive a total of $8,650 in fines from the salty sentences. John Lanfigle and George Pubtay, both of Leisenrmg No. 3, were ordered held for court without bond when arraigned before Alderman John E. Wallace on charges growing out of the alleged assault and robbery of E. B. Schmitz at the lattcr's garage in South Eighth street, West Side, last August. They were committed to the county jail at Uniontown. Both had been arrested by city polics after Chief Andrew W. Thomas had received a "tip" that the two had been "bragging" about a holdup job they reportedly had pulled. Pustay, according to Thomas, signed a confession admitting the loldup and .robbery that netted ibout $75. Pustay, the statement aid, struck Schmitz in the face when he failed to comply with Langgle's command to put up his hands. A t'etainer has been lodged with ·minorities for Langglc, who is said .o have been paroled from Western Penitentiary where he had been serving a 10-year sentence on a rob- jcry charge in the Pittsburgh district. !

SS!^^ ,- i' u Fletcher Valentine knows tobacco so many other independent experts he smokes Luckies! "T'VE bought 4,000,000 pounds of tobacco at auc- JL dons in the past ten years," says Mr. Valentine, independent buyer of Westfield, N. C, "and my bread and butter, depends on making the right bids. That's why I have to know tobacco values. "Now I've smoked Luckies ever since 1918, and the reason is, they suit my taste to a'T'. Nobody knows better than we tobacco men that Luckies are made of the finest center-leaf tobacco." Yes--and that isn't all... Luckies' exclusive process, "It's Toasted" takes out certain irritants naturally present in all tobacco--even the finest! The result is that you will find Luckies not only taste good but are easy on your throat. Surely, independent experts like Mr. Valentine make good judges of cigarettes ... Sworn records show that, among independent tobacco experts, Luckies have twice as many exclusive smokers as have all other cigarettes combined! WITH IVIEN WHO KNOW TOBACCO BEST |"f
