TUESDAY','FEBRUARY' i; iszs. DAILY COURIER. CONNELLSVIL.LE. PA- PAGE-THREE} Laws, Taxes, Licenses, Insurance, Charity Take Local Resident for Ride Connellsville has a man who is oble jto put into words all the ills that confront humanity in this age of laws and taxes. Ignacio Castiglin, of 608 Gibson avenue, in a letter that proves to be a masterpiece of something or other, ^f- explained to Commissioner John W. Rankin of Uniontown just why he found it difficult to forward a check to offset an obligation to the county. And there is a challenge to anyone to improve upon the writer's ability to so compactly encompass the trials nnd tribulations of the American citizenry. Here 'tis: "In reply to your request to\scnd n check, I wish to inform you that ·i the present condition of my bank account makes it almost impossible. My shattered financial condition is due to Federal laws, corporation laws, liquor laws, mother-In-laws, brother- in-laws, sister-In-laws and outlaws. "Through these laws I am compelled to pay a business tax, amusement tax, head tax, school tax, gas tax, light tax, water tax, sales tax, liquor tax, income tax, food tax, furniture tax and excise tax. I am required to get a business license, car license, operator's license, truck license--not to mention a marriage license and a dog license. "I am also required to contribute to every society and organization ·which the genius of man is capable of bringing into life; to women's relief, the unemployed relief and the golddigger's relief. Also to every charitable institution hi the city, including the Salvation Army, community chest. Red Cross, Purple Cross, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Y. M. C. A. "For my own safety, I am required to carry health insurance, life insurance, fire insurance, property insurance, liability insurance, burglar in, surance, accident Insurance, business ·~ Insurance, earthquake insurance, tornado Insurance, unemployment insurance and old age insurance. "My business is so governed that it is no easy matter to find out who owns it. I am inspected, expected, suspected, disrespected, rejected, dejected, examined, re-examined, informed, required, summoned, fined, commanded and compelled, until 3 . provide the Inexhaustible supply of money for every known need, desire or hope of the human race. "Simply because I refuse to donate to something or other I am boycotted, tallked nbout, lied about, held up, held down nnd robbed until I nm almost ruined. "I can tell you honesty that, except for a miracle that happened, ] could not enclose this check. The wolf that comes to many doors, nowadays, just had pups In my kitchen I sold them and here Is the money." 20 Per Cent Held Responsible For State Auto Wrecks Twenty per cent o£ the people ause all of the accidents in the State f Pennsylvania, Private W. J. Urich f the State Motor Police, stationed t Uniontown, told the Brownsville llromen at their annual turkey din- icr. Because that 20 per cent is neg* ;gent, careless and inattentive, the nicer told his listeners the Govcr- or's and Motor Police highway afety campaign must be aimed at 11 people in an effort to reduce the rightful toll of deaths on the roads. In Fayette county alone last year, lighway accidents caused $100,000 amage and SO deaths, not including hat within boroughs and cities, the jatrolman said. As another instance of the many atalities on the highways. Private Urich pointed out that American asualties during the 18 months the Jnited States took part in the World Var were 50,000--5,000 less than the number of lives claimed by automobiles last year.' The Governor nor the State Motor Police cannot reduce the toll of lives alone but "each individual has to become a participant in this war against highway deaths," Private Urich said, urging each of his listeners to carry that thought to his home, to his work and to his social life. Not the drunken driver, not the speeder nor do weather conditions cause the greatest number of accidents, the speaker asserted, claiming most of them occur on a dry day, on dry highway and on a straight stretch of road. Private Urich declared that sideswipe collisions between two automobiles traveling in opposite directions cause the most accidents. Second come drunken drivers and third excess speed under hazardous conditions, the officer said.

DETROIT, Feb. 1--Edmond (Bing) Miller, former Boston Red Sox coach and once member of the world champion Philadelphia Athletics, has been signed as coach of the Detroit Tigers, it was announced today. But Branch Babbitt, like so many other independent experts, prefers luckies... "AT AUCTIONS in my warehouse JL\ in Farmvillc, North Carolina," says Mr. Branch Bobbitt, "Lucky Strike buyers know what tobacco they want and they'll keep bidding right up until they get it. "Well--in a cigarette--ic's the tobacco that counts. I know tobacco and I know what tobacco is in what cigarettes. So that's one reason I've smoked Luckies for over five years now." Many other experts agree with Mr. Bobbitt. Sworn records show that, among independent tobacco experts, Luckies have twice as many exclusive smokers as have all the other cigarettes combined.

WITH MEN WHO KNOW TOBACCO BEST-IT'S LUCKIES 2 T01 Snake, Ant Eating So Bad; Iguana Steak, Educat ays A diet consisting of monkeys,; baboons, fried ants, ^snakes and lizards would /hardly appeal to the average white'person but it is exactly what Dr. i Samuel H. Williams, University of I Pittsburgh biologist, and his companions ate when on expeditions to ihc South American jungles' where 'they lived practically like natives. Dr. Williams, a former Connellsville boy, declares the flesh of the guana, a lizard of tropical America, s the most delectable morsel lie has ever tasted even though he has eaten n many of the best restaurants in :his country. 'Steaks are not even a good comparison," he declared. The iguana, which attains a length of five or six feet, is the best known member of the family Iguunidac. It is greenish and black in color, more or less speckled and barred. In its habits it is inoffensive and entirely herbivorous and not only its flesh but its eggs as well are esteemed as food. Describing weather conditions in the jungle during his lectures at teacher conferences last week, he snid there are only two--the rainy season and the dry season. However, he said, it is hard to differentiate between them unless it is because that during the rainy season rain Wlndbcr Woman Succumbs. SOMERSET, Feb. 1.--Mrs. Anna Miller Strapple, 48, wife of Anthony Strapple of Wmdber, died Thursday in Somerset County Hospital. She leaves her husband, seven children and four sisters. falls steadily' for eight or nine days and during the dry season it only rains seven or eight days. Though the temierature is always high, the constant wetness causes terrible chills which wrack the body, eventually leading to malaria, he said. Bedtime in the jungle means sleeping in hammocks that swing high above the ground, Dr. Williams told the teachers. Netting covers the , sleeper but it doesn't always serve to keep out the various night prowlers. Once, Dr. Williams said, he was awakened from a sound sleep by a giant centepede which had wrapped itself around his neck, apparently seeking warmth. Snakes, too, like to curl atop sleeping forms and dozens . ot smaller insects combine to make sleeping anything but a pleasant pastime until one becomes accustomed The netting serves its real purpose however--that of keep-. ..' ing vampire bats awiiy. All in all, the biologist enjoyed his trips to the jungle and declared he would rather be.there now than to endure the cold weather of the North. Then too,' he declared: "I can truthfully say that I have never felt as unsafe in the jungle as I do when I attempt to cross Smith- neld street at Fifth avenue in Pittsburgh." Michael C. While Burled. The funeral service for Michael C. White, who died Friday, was held Monday morning. After a prayer at the home of a son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Martin Rottler, requiem high mass was celebrated at Immaculate Conception Church with Rev. Henry Geibcl, pastor, official- ing.
