PAGE SIXTEEN. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1033. /RELIEF WHICH STATE PAYS NEEDY NOT GIFT BUT LOAN Spccli] to The Courier. PITTSBURGH, Feb. 4.--The relief which the State of Pennsylvania pays to thousands ol its needy citizens is not a gilt--it is a loan. It can be reclaimed by the State at the moment that the person who has 'received assistance obtains any property or a substantial sum of jnoney. ~ The State can even recover the money from the estate o£ the person on relief after that person's death. These are important points in the Support Law passed by the Legislature among the Public Assistance Acts last Juno. The relatives of a needy person have a legal responsibility to provide support. _ This applies to the husband, wife, "child, father, mother, grandparent and grandchild of any person rccciv- "inK relief. ~~ " . ~ The law makes" these relatives legally responsible to help the needy one, and failing in that they can be sentenced for contempt of court to six months in county jail. In the past it has not been uncommon for parents to be sued 'for not supporting children, but it has been _rathcr rare for children to be sued Jtor not supporting parents. : Under the new law, it is possible to bring grandfather into court for _not helping grandson, and vice versa. . -The law is quite plain in regard "to relief as a loan. It states: -" "The real and personal property of any indigent person shall be 'liable for the expenses of his sup- 'port, maintenance, assistance and burial, incurred by - any public agency, whether owned at the time such expenses were incurred or acquired thereafter. Any public body or public agency may sue for moneys ~ so expended, and for moneys so ob- :talncd shall be a lien upon the real Restate o£ such indigent person, and :be collected as other judgments." .. - IThat 'means that you cannot have anything when you get relief and that you cannot own anything after- -Avardr, either, without paying up. This might prove a substantial source of revenue for the State in the future, for the fortunes of many now on relief, or who have been on relief, might take a turn for the better. Any widespread prosperity and big increases in employment might start a flood of money pouring back into the State Treasury from relief recipients. When a person ROCS on relief they sign away a few of their rights to the State, a fact not generally known. If you arc on relief and someone owes you a sum of money, the State can step in and sue the third party for the debt. It can pocket the money up to the amount of relief you have received. The State can petition the court to appoint a guardian for a person on relief, and can take over that guardianship if the court consents. The guardianship will not be lifted until the court is convinced that the person has become able to resume control of his own estate, and has paid Parole Is Refused "Regular Offender" By Judge Coltom UNIONTOWN, Feb. 4.--Following a hearing. Judge Harry A. Cottom ordered Mary Eckovitch, 50, German township woman, - returned to the women's quarters of the county jail to serve more than just three months" on her one-year sentence before consideration would be given parole petition. The woman, branded by ex-Judge Thomas H. Hudson as a "regular offender" in court for violation of the liquor laws, was ordered to jail for one year "to impress upon you that you can't get awny with selling moonshine and expect this court to be forever lenient." Somerset Sheriff Restrained From Selling Property By United Press. PITTSBURGH Feb. 4.--A voluntary bankruptcy petition was on (lie in Federal Court in behalf of Lloyd R. and Roy C. Vought, individually and trading as the Meyersdale Dairy, Mcycrsdalc, Pa. The petition listed liabilities of $37,735.40 and assets of $78,058.10. The assets were made up of $60,000 worth of real estate, $9,000 worth of machine and tools, $8,000 worth of policies of Insurance and $1,158 worth of debts due on open account. The bankrupt concern obtained a temporary restraining order preventing Sheriff Fred P. Hnre of Somerset county for holding a public sale of the company's property on February 7, on an execution obtained by the Grcunke Dairy Company, a creditor. Federal Judge Robert M. GiGbson ordered that a hearing be held on February 9 to determine whether the temporary order should bo made permanent. Wins Divorce Decree. UNIONTOWN. Feb. 14.--Charges that her husband descried her swo months before her baby was born and enlisted in the United Stairs Army as a single mnn won a divorce for Opal J. Funk. 23. of Smithflcld. from Charles W. Funk, 16, of New Salem. the Stale in full for the cost of assistance. Even though the relatives are unable to give full support to persons on relief, they are expected to do what they can. If n home is provided then shelter is ch;:rgcd ofl the relief loan, reducing it by that much. If clothing can bo provided, that, too, is charged ofl the State's bill against the person receiving relief. The person who accepts a relief loan when he has property of his own, or relatives ready and willing to aid him is the "chisclcr" agaliut whom the State is ready to act. SANITARY MARKET 220 N.

Asks Approval Of $25O,OOO in Notes -® Only Man to Travel Aione Across Top of / World at Game Show BALTIMORE, Feb. 4.--David Irwlnj the only man to travel alone acros^ the top of the world, will be one of the guides at the North American Snorts, Garden and Outdoor Life Show next week, according to an announcement here. Aflcr two years of living as a hunter and trapper near the northern coast of Alaska, Mr. Irwin decided to set out alone and take a trip from Barter Island in Demarcation Bay to Churchill along Hudson Bay. It took him over two nnd one-half years to cover this route and during that time he faced starvation and the possibility of freezing to death on a number of occasions. David Irwin is an adventurer at heart for at the age of 15 he started to travel to the far corners of the world and his numerous trips carried him from Singapore to Port Said; from Alaska's coast to the tip of Africa; across Europe, and into the jungles of Burma. In February, 1933, eight months after he started this trip, he became separated from Ms dog team and all personal possessions and was entirely without provisions. He miraculously encountered a hospitable trader who rcoutfltted him nnd gave him a scratch dog team. On one occasion, upon awakening, he found that he WASHINGTON, Feb. 4. -- The PitUiburgh West Virginia Railway has! applied to the Interstate Commerce Commission for authority to issue unsecured short term notes of $250,000 to replenish cash working capital. and his dogs were drifting out to sea on ice that had broken loose. Toward the end of the journey his sled and all but one dog were again lost when cracking ice gave way beneath them and all were precipitated into the sea. Occasionally during ' these many months he encountered friendly Eskimos or an outpost of white civilization but in the main his 30 months were spent alone. Owens' Cagers Suspended.
