FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 193S. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVTLLE. PA. PAGE ELEVEN. County Relief Rolls Reduced By 288 Cases Fayettc county's direct relief rolls showed a net decline for the second consecutive week with a reduction of 288 cases, or 3.8 per cent, during the period ending January 22, according to figures announced at Harrisburg by the State Department of Public Assistance. There were 287 cases opened and 575 closed. Of the former 250 lost private employment, 10 were eliminated by the WPA and 27 tor other reasons while of the number taken off relief 467 were given jobs by private industry, 83 added to the WPA and 25 for other reasons. There were 649 new applications while on the rolls were 7,213 cases, repitsenting 28,650 individuals. Expenditures aggregated $54,384.40. ' Fayctte county was the only one in Pennsylvania that showed a decline in relief rolls because of revived private industry employment. Increasing at a slackened rate, State direct relief rolls registered a net rise of 4,345 cases (14,812 persons) during the week ending January 22. The week's increase was the smallest since the beginning of December when the full impact of heavy industrial layoffs first became evident in State relief lists. While some of the slackening between January 17-22 was due to a decline in the number of eases opened because of loss of private jobs the primary factor in checking the upswing in direct relief was Works Program employment. More relief cases were closed because of transfers to the Federal Works Program than in any week since August, 1036. The number of cases on direct relief rolls January 22 was 209,218 (679,699 persons)--the largest number since February 1, 1936. Relief applications filed during the week totaled 13,568--a decrease of 777 from the previous week's total. Expenditures for direct relief increased by $29,159. The week's total of $1,599,142 averaged $2.35 per recipient. DAY IN WASHINGTON BY DAVID LAWRENCE Continued from Page Four, whether they represent large or small corporations, are needed, one wonders why the Congress of the United States takes such a back seat in all these goings-on. The average American, aflcr »!!, has been educated to believe that he has a representative in Washington --either a congressman or a senator. Why should a group of small business have to come to the National Capital to engage in a free-for-all without program or plan? Should not the members of Congress represent small business aiTwell as large, poor as well as rich, fortunate as well as unfortunate? Few things illustrate better the role of the present Congress, its utter insignificance in the national scene, than the concentration of power and authority in the executive, as well as the general impression which has been built up that, when any laws arc to be made, the executive will in his kindness see that they arc passed. 1 There was a time when business men and labor and groups ot all kinds felt that they should and ciuld take up matters of all kinds with their agents--the representatives in Congress--but the word seems to have been spread that, without presidential okeh, nothing can be done. The clamor of the small business man for some kind of help is natural. It arises out of a chaolic general situation in which the curve of business conditions from peaks of high orders to valleys of low orders has presented a bewildering and perplexing dilemma, especially after the present administration had led millions of voters to believe that it was Hooverism or Republican error which brought it all about. The theory that the Administration in power can alter economic conditions and can bring prosperity and avoid depressions has been much more assiduously cultivated by the Roosevelt regime than by any other. Now that a second recession has occurred, there is a tendency on the part of many people to blame the Administration in power and particularly the man who happens to be president of the United Slates. This trend toward personalizing A Real Happy Landing Helen Mclnick, 11-year-old irlrl pictured In the inset, inuilos bravely from her hospital cot alter tumbling from the fifth floor landing; of a Novr York City tenament down the stairwell pictured above, to tho bottom.

(CmtralPrtu) Congress Told Unmolested Jap Activities in Davao May Cause This Country Trouble By JULIUS C. EDELSTEIN United Press Staff Correspondent, WASHINGTON, Feb. 4. -- Representative Fred L. Crawford, R-, Mich., told tho House today that "unmolested Japanese activities in Davac," a rich province in the Philippine Islands, present the United States with a critical international problem. "On my own responsibility," he said, "I make the charge that the Japanese agricultural activity in the province of Davao is disguised penetration that can easily some day form the spearhead and be used as an operating base for Japan's conquest, acquisition and control of the Philippine Islands. "The Japanese influence in Davao is so predominant that it, in fact, becomes the invisible government." He asserted that the United States could not "afford to be unmindful of the staggering progress go and find land more acceptable to their culture, their habits, their religion, their enterprise and industry, strategically situated so as to form a base of operations for the expansion of the Japanese in other southern waters and territories." He declared in detail the economic, agricultural and Industrial holdings of Japanese nationals in thi: region, which comprises one of the richest portions of the Island o: Mindanao, one of the two Inrgcs' islands of the Philippine group. He said that 50 per cent of the agricultural area is occupied by Japanese, and even greater percentages of other types of enterprises. Crawford charged that the por of Davao, was being used as n base to smuggle Japanese nationals Into Davao from the island of Paulau, of the Carolina Island group. Islands mandated to Japan by the League of Nations were "ideal op- Revival Opens Monday Evening At Normalville A revival meeting will begin on Monday evening, February 7, at 7:30 o'clock at the Normalville Methodist Episcopal Church, it was announced today by Rev.

Shade Upsets BonvrlL Shade Township of Cairnbrook took s 16 to 14 decision over Boswcll as the latter club failed to sink single foul out of 10 tries. the depression was ns wrong in Hoover days as it is wrong in Roosevelt days. But, for political purposes, the thesis will be as strongly urged nowadays in order to bring i j adverse votes at the polls as it was in the campaign of 1932, when Mr. Roosevelt went up and down the country predicting bankruptcy for the United States if the deficits of the then Hoover regime were continued. · Some day, the American people will have their fill of the insincerities of political life, the striving for impression and effect, tho idea that personal pride and ambition are more important than taking it on the chin and calling a spade a spade when things go wrong even with the best of intentions. When administrations frankly admit their mistakes, when there is in Congress a greater degree of independence and a greater respect for facts instead of political benefits, then maybe a way will be found to improve economic conditions or.d build confidence in the whole world of business. Until then, the conferences of business men, large end small, beneficial as they may be in forwarding a spirit, of cooperation, stand as a monument to the lollies of politics and unplanned government, for out of them has come neither program nor planning.
