MONDAY, JANUARY 31,1938. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVTLLE, PA, PAGE NINE Three Drastic Trotting Rules Changes Voted By HENSY SUPER United Press Staff Corespondent NEW YORK, Jan. 31.--The Ham- bletonian, blue-ribbon event of the trailing horso circuit, will be held August 10 at the Good Time Track, Goshen, N. Y., it was decided at the anual meeting o£ the stewards of the Grand Circuit Association. The association has allotted dates lor the 1938 meeting and made three drastic rules changes governing starting of future trotting events. The Hambletonlan, revived in 1930 at Goshen, has drawn a total o£ 44 entries, it was announced, although that number will not start. The list at present is flvc horses larger than last year. The rules changes were: 1. A penalty will be exacted for "taking back" the polo horse unnecessarily. In the past, the pole horse, which set the pace lor the running start, was regarded as above reproach. Last year, however, in the Hambletonian, the pole horse was pulled and forced two o£ the outside horses to break over the line aheac and cause a told. Henceforth, i£ the pole horse is pulled in an effort to draw the others out it will constitute an infraction of the rules. 2. Instead ol the following horses being forced to stay behind the poll horse's saddle, they will have to remain behind the hips. 3. Judges hereafter will be au, thorired to replace a driver when he has been "taken down"--removed-- irom a race. In the past, the drive who was penalized could make hi own selection. Now the judges will handle that job. ASSISTANCE BOARD WILL SCAN COMPENSATION ROLLS TO END RELIEF CHISELING Hockey Tops Basketball.

They pur chased 818 tickets prior to a hocke game with Western Reserve, whil only eight advance tickets were sol to Carroll students for a basketball game with Perm College. By United Press. HARRISBUHG, I all persons it Jan. 31.--Records Pennsylvania eli- gible for unemployment compensation should be made available' \o the public assistance department to avoid publication of cash assistance and relief "chiseling," Attorney General Charles J. Margiotti said today. Margiotti said it was "entirely proper" for the unemployment compensation and employment service division to furnish the information requested by Public Assistance Secretary Arthur W. Howe, Jr., who plans on early re-rcgistrntion of relief rolls to "purge" them of eligible*, Labor and Industry Secretary Ralph M. Boshore, under whose department the unemployment compensation unit functions, asked Margiotti to rule on Howe's request. "Good policy and common sense," Margiotti said in n formal opinion, "dictate that such information should be given. "It would be a violent presumption to suppose the Legislature in- tended that these receiving unemployment compensation payments could at the same time receive cash grants from public funds in the nature of direct relief. "This would be the inevitable result if the Labor nnd Industry Department were prohibited from disclosing to tha Public Assistance Department the information it has requested. "Rights of persons unable to care lor themselves . . . should not b« sacrificed but the Commonwealth' should administer relief adequately at the/lowest possible cost to the taxpayer; You Homes. will find desirable homes and home sites advertised in our classified columns.

Any Fayette county community interested in planning a rural library, in cooperation with tho NYA, should contact Luther A. Davis, Fayettc county NYA supervisor, 4$6 West Main street, Uniontown.
