PAGE.THRBB1 Weekly Relief Checks In Fayette County Will Range From $3.8O to $ 18 The unemployment relief standards to be adopted by the State Department of Public Assistance for the assistance program have been graduated into eight schedules, depending upon the size of the case and location, it was announced at Harrisburg by Arthur W. Howe, secretary of public assistance. Fayette countians will be paid $3.00 a week for one person up to 518 a week for 10 or more persons In one family. Also embraced in this schedule are Westmoreland, Somerset, Washington and Greene counties. The allocation is the lowest fixed for the entire State, the peak of $4.75 to $20 being prescribed for Schedule 8, embracing Berks, Daughin, Delaware,- Montgomery and Philadelphia counties. In announcing the direct relief standards, Secretary Howe said that Pennsylvania's new relief policy of aid would go on the basis of need and ruled that aged persons with families able to support them will be · dropped from the pension rolls for the aged, Howe said the new policy adopted by the State Board of Public Assistance would save the State from $400,000 to $500,000 a month in pensions for the aged and an additional saving would be made in leveling off unemployment relief grants to bring the monthly total to $800,000. Howe explained the action would cut in half the prospective $26,000,000 deficit in the $138,000,000 relief appropriation at the end of the bi- cnnium in 1039. Howe was unable to estimate the number of persons who would be dropped from the aged pension rolls by the new policy, but said it would run into thousands. He explained that "the general assistance act--that is the unemployment relief--will be the basis lor distributing-help as the act intended. "From now on, under the act, the Mrs. Sturgis Colborn Entertains Card Club At Home in Mill Run TIN HAT CLUB PAYS HOMAGE TO VETERAN WRIGHT ON STAND IN OWN DEFENSE MILL RUN, Feb. 2.--The "500" r rd Club held its regular meeting Wednesday evening at the home of Mrs. Sturgis Colborn.

M'ORECRIBBAGE FRIDAY NIGHT legally responsible relatives ''who . Hunter Newill of Uniontown vis- have the means will have to support the aged persons. Those who have no means- of support, of course, will be retained on the rolls." Up to now t the situation has been this, Howe said: Many persons who qualified for old age assistance by being 70 years old obtained a great deal more than ,thc same type of case would get on unemployment relief. On the other hand, the average mothers' assistance' case was paid a good deal less than the standards of unemployment relief. The State board's ruling will level out these grants, lowering in most cases the old age assistance · and raising the mothers' assistance, . which now is called aid to dependent children, he said. The jobless relief basis has been arrived at from numerous surveys as the. most accurate standard of needs, Howe explained. "This should have been done long ago," he added. "There's no reason 1 why one person should get more than another, who is equally deserving, just because he is receiving a different kind of assistance." The ruling docs not apply to those persons receiving blind pensions. They arc fixed at $30 a month. - Blind Girl at Switchboard.

Corner Drug Store Older Than You've Imagined 3y I.OGAN CLEXDENWG, M. D. DO YOU SEE that man over there In the white coat, coming to the door of his shop to direct that woman to the street car that goes to the postof- flccT Ho looks 8 p r u c « and clean and modern, but ho has been doing business, t h e r e or 8 o m cwhcro In some capacity, for ten thousand years. He la the c o r n e r drug store. Ho was a fixture in tho life of the w o r l d long b e f o r e t h e r e was a Dr. Clendcnlng court of law. Before there was a president or a constitution or a king or a government, even. Because they tell that the most primitive race on earth, who live In a social system that is not even tribal, have a special tree, the leaves of which are used to put on wounds 'to make them heal. In Exodus Is written, "The Lord spoke unto Mo- ·303: Thou shalt make it in an oil Dr. Clcndenlng will answer questions of general Interest only, and then only through his column. |of holy ointment, an ointment compounded after the art ot the apoth- jecary." And 11 that wasn't the corner drug store, what was? The druggist at the corner drug store used to go out and gather his own herbs. In fact, for many years the best drug stores were associated with monasteries, and the monks grew In their garden* the plants which they used for drugs and cosmetics, so the cosmetic counter of a. modem drug store is a logical part ot that Institution. Kmploys World Resources The pharmacist of today docs not collect his own samples personally --he has tho resources of th« world at his disposal through the organ- isation of the larjr» manufacturing drug companies--but he has othez responsibilities and Is trained better than any of tho pharmacists of the old days. It Is well that he has this responsibility and training, because you have i depend on him just as much as you do on the doctor, for an honest product. He shares the responsibility with the physician of seeing that you get exactly what the doctor ordered with no substitution; that the Ingredients of a prescription are carefully measured and compounded, and that tho prescription is a matter of record so that It can be referred to later. · He Is a chemist as well as a pur-j vcyor, and the "q. s." which tho' doctor sometimes slips Into his pre-j scription allows him to put "quan-; tlty sufficient" of sugar or pepper-' mint oil or splcc of some kind to make an otherwise disagreeable' medicine palatable. | QUESTIONS FROM READERS A. K.: "Can you give me Information on the care of tho teeth, especially with regard to mouth odor? My teeth are rather crowded and, therefore, I have some difficulty In cleaning them thoroughly." Answer: The most Important thing about keeping a mouth clean under these circumstances la tho proper use of a small toothbrush with tough bristles. A powder or sandy toothpaste is probably best. The brush should be laid against tho teeth and pushed In with a slight rotary motion, systematically placing It between every tooth, front and back, In the upper and lower Jaw.
