'FRIDAY, JANUARY 21, 1938. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. . PAGE SEVEN. .-·*. State Manufacturers WiSi Be Covered in New i CensusStartingJan.25 Pennsylvania manufacturers are being covered in-the biennial census of manufactures which gets under way on January 25, the schedules being -mailed from Washington, according to an announcement by Director William ,L. Austin of the Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce. The census, which covers activities during the calendar year 1937, includes all manufacturing establishments in the United States making products valued at $5,000 or 'more. Pennsylvania manufacturing and printing and publishing establishments totaled 13,050 in 1935, according to census reports. These establishments gave employment during that year to 841,234 wpge earners ·who received S848,637,3P1 in wages. Products manufactured in Pennsylvania in 1935 were valued at $4,291,847.924. -The Census Bureau has set n goal of greatly increased timeliness in issuing the reports of this canvass. The division of manufactures has been completely reorganized and strengthened towards this end. Cooperation of manufacturers in returning schedules promptly is necessary, however, if this goal is to be attained. Prompt publication oJ the figures will greatly enhance their value and the Bureau is making every effort to set a speed record in the'collection, compilation and publication of the reports of the Biennial Census of Manufactures, 1937. The usefulness of these statistics is indicated by the following resolution adopted by the Congress of American Industry on December 9, 1937: "Resolved, that the Congress of American Industry express to the United States Census Bureau appreciation of its endeavor to cooperate in developing sound forms and practice in the forthcoming Census of Manufactures, and that all manufacturers be urged to cooperate with the Census of Manufactures in prompt return of Census forms." The general schedule consists of four pages including a page and a half devoted to instructions. The major questions are: Description of plant; character of industry: time in operation and hours of labor; salaried employes and salaries paid; wage garners employed, by months, and 'wages paid; costs of materials, etc., actually used during year; products made and work done during year; fuel and electric energy used during 1937, and inventory at the bcginnig and also at the end of the year. This is the first time the inventory information, has been requested. Leading manufacturers and trade associations participated actively in drawing up the schedule used in this canvass. . Every effort was made to restrict inquiries to those which will yield the maximum of usefulness with the minimum of trouble In reporting. Manufacturers are again as- -sured that their reports to the bureau ·are confidential nnd cannot be used for purposes-of taxation, regulation or Investigation.

Driver's License Fee $1 in 1938 HARRISBURG, Jan. 21.--All automobile operators' licenses foi 1938 will cost $1 each. Secretary ol Revenue J. Griffith Boardman declared today in nailing a rumor that a special charge was to be made lot paid operators. 'The Bureau of Motor Vehicles has received numerous Inquiries from all over the state asking if a special operator's license at a higher fee is necessary lor professional chauffeurs, truck drivers or persons driving cars registered in other than their own name," Boardman said. 'According to the rumor which is apparently receiving wide circulation, it is necessary to pay $5 for one of these special 1938'licenses. This rumor is absolutely without foundation. There is no such thing as a paid operator's license in Pennsylvania and there has not been foi many years. "The universal operator's license law became effective on March lj 1924, with the license fee set at $1. Several years later the fee was Increased to $2 where it remained until Governor Earlc called for the present reduction to SI which becomes effective for 1938." Boardman stated that applications for 1938 operator's licenses would be mailed out by the Bureau late this month. Woman "Rcmilar" Jailed. ; UNIONTOWN, .

HARRISBUHG, -Jan. 21.^-Coi-rec- lion of "chaotic conditions" In Pennsylvania's anthracite region through Federal acqusltibn of coal lands and Government regulation-'of production, prices and marketing methods was a major objective of Governor George H. Earlc today. ^_ He said he would go to the White House early, next. week, to solicit PrcsidonC.rRdbse.vclt's support of a bill in Congress~to nationalize the ailing Industry to provide legitimate employment for idle miners, eliminate "bootleg" mining and .increase consumption of hard coal through reduction in prices to consumers. · "Under this program," the Govcr- ior said, "you would have Govern- ment'ownership, Government' control, Government regulation and private operation." Earle's decision to urge. Federal, rather than Stacc, control of the hard-hit industry, which has lost its markets at an alarming rate to other fuels, marked abandonment of ( his tentative plan to call a special session of the Legislature early this year to consider his "most perplexing problem"--rehabilitation of, ithe anthracite industry and abolition of coal "bootlegging," the "canker; in the heart of the Commonwealth.}' The Governor announced hisj decision on the Federal approach tq the problem last night following a fjou'r- hour conference with representatives of the large operators, the independent/operators, the miners' union and the Lauck anthracite industry investigating commission : established by the last Legislature.
