Scottdale's Scouts And Scouters Urged To Register at Once Troop No. 2 Initiates Contest Among Its Several Patrols. .. OTHER ITEMS OF INTEREST Special to The Courier. SCOTTDALE, Jan. 20.--District Committee No. G, Boy Scouts of America, emphasizes the fact that registration with Scout headquarters 'for the year 1939 should be taken care of with the least possible delay. All Scouts and Scouters should take care of this detail at once, it is pointed out. Troop 2, Boy Scouts of America, held its regular meeting Monday evening with 18 present. During the meeting Harold Gordon, newly elected assistant scoutmaster, made a suggestion to stimulate efforts on the part of the boys by having patrol competition. After the regular meeting officers of the troop met in a special sc.islon and outlined a contest between the three patrols of Troop 2. The contest will be used on patrol achievements instead of individual achievements. Points will be awarded for attendance at meetings, on tests, on special activities promoted by the patrols and for church at- tcndunce. - The contest will continue for six weeks, after which members of the winning patrol will be guests of honor at a dinner to be given by the losers. The Scout committcemen in charge of publicity would appreciate the cooperation of anyone who has Scout news to offer by having such news either sent or called by telephone to ·s. the publicity chairman, J. L. Miles. Breaks Arm In Fall. Mrs. William Bcistel of Alverton fractured her arm in a fall on an icy walk at her home Tuesday. l*egion Auxiliary Meets.

MARRIAGE ANNULLED AS COUPLE LEAUN THEY ARE UNCLE AND NIECE FITCHBURG, Mass., Jan. 20.-Discovery that they were uncle and niece one month after they were joined in wedlock in Greenville, N. H., led to annulments of'the marriage of Beatrice B. Brisson of Fitchburg and Alexander Brisson. The court granted the annulment when advised by Brisson that he did not become aware of the relationship until the couple had been married a month. Woman's Privilege To Change Mind Special to The Courier. LOS ANGELF.S, Jan. 20.--It's n woman's privilege to change her mind--and her clothing, too, if she wants to. That much was proved by Helen Hulick, the kindergarten teacher, who went to jail for an hour several months ago because she appeared in municipal court in slacks and was held in contempt although a superior court judge later reversed the edict. When she appeared again in court to testify against two men she accused of burglarizing her home, she looked completely feminine in a rust zilk dress, high heeled shoes and tilted hat. She explained: "I've been stepping out every night since I decided to dress like the rest of the girls." 2,835 Removed From WPA Rolls Since November Curtailment of Works Progreis Administration forces in Fayettc. Washington and Greene counties due to diminishing funds has resulted in dismissal of 2,835 men and women since November 15, the WPA branch office at Uniontown reported today. The largest decrease was in Fay- ettc, where 1,932 persons lost jobs. The larger figure for Fayettc was due to the greater number of relief cases there in ration to the other two counties in that particular WPA branch office area. At the close of operations on November 15, 1938, the WPA job load showed: Fayette 13,888 persons; Washington 5,782 and Greene 1,505, with a grand total ot 21,175. Employment figures for January 15. 1939 showed: Fayette, 11,951; Washington 5,031 and Greene 1,353, with a grand total of 18,335. The curtailment is in line with national and state regulations issued from the office of Colonel F. C. liar- ring, U. S. A., national WPA administrator; and J. Banks Hudson, work-relief administrator for Pc'nn- sylvania. The national and state cuts arc reported necessary because of rn- duccd funds. The present appropriation of the WPA is scheduled to be exhausted early this month. In line with personnel reductions, the WPA sources indicated that further slashes would be necessary within the next two weeks. WPA lists are being prepared also for submission in the Uniontown area office to the Pennsylvania Department of Public Assistance offices in the tri- countics area. These particular rolls will be scrutinized by DPA examiners to determine who are in need most and those whose services will no longer be required. The "purging 1 is necessary so that as little hardship as possible will be wreaked on families in actual need; and also to make the curtailment "painless" as possible. WPA officials reported that a preliminary probe of the WPA and other relief indicated that some persons have remained on the program since its inception, and have made no effort to obtain private employment. Aside from these, others have members of immediate families working in private industry and have failed to report this to the proper authorities in direct violation of the Act of Congress creating the Works Progress Administration and its allied aid agencies. Recently the Department of Public Assistance set up such an examining outfit to aid in culling the lists of the undeserving and other not entitled to direct aid. When cases of "chiseling" are discovered and supported by factual evidence, the recipients ot such a,'d will be taken from the work-relief and direct relief setups. It is likely that legal action and criminal proceedings will be instituted against any violators unearthed. In announcing the curtailment and the employment figures for Fayette, Washington and Greene counties today, the WPA officials pointed out that the reductions were being made "painlessly" as humanly possible. Among those who have been curtailed have been persons who have some other member of the immediate family hired in private industry; those who have other sources of income; single relief eases; aliens with first citizenship papers, and women with children eligible for aid to dependent children.

MARTIN United Press Start Correspondent. ' CHUNGKING, China, Jan. 20.-Plans for large-scale guerrilla warfare against the Japanese in North China were announced today by Chao Tung, one of the more fjmous of younger Chinese military lenders and popularly known as "Chno the Daring." ·Raids on Japanese stations have provided us with a great part ot our supplies," Chao, who is 27 and leads the so-called fifth guerrilla district troops, said. ·Now, with the aid of the Chinese central government, we aic establishing a chain of supply stations extending to the most northern part ot China. Our communication lines arc being perfected and we are prepared to begin the second phase of the war --a guerrilla war against the Japanese." Chao likes to us an occasional American phrase and in asserting that Japan will never conquer China he paraphrased the works of John Paul Jones: "Surrender? Hell, we've begun to flght." Chao said he became a guerrilla leader about six years ago following the fall of Mukden. "We organized northeastern Chinese youth into n blood and iron corps which now totals between 4,000 and 5,000 men," he said. "Now we have thousands of men and women armed with rifles, light machine guns and a few pieces of heavy artillery who are carrying on the war within an area of eight counties west of Peiping. In addition, our guerrillas arc still operating south of Mukden." Chao said that despite a price placed by the Japanese on his head, he has visited Peiping disguised as a cabbage peddler, and Shanghai d guiscd as a "dandy" dressed in line silk gowns. Chao Tung denied that Chinese peasants willingly submit to Japanese rule in the occupied areas. "The peasants are the backbone of Debate Tournament At Hurst Saturday Special to The Courier.
