The girls were among the hundreds of young beauties who live in Hollywood with the hope and remote prospect of getting jobs in the movies. Crosby said the man obtained the girls' names from photographers to whom he applied for attractive young "unknowns" who might be.trained for screen and movie work. The man Crosby named came to Hollywood from Chicago and at first tried to affiliate with Crosby's agency. Larry Crosby manages Bins Crosby's financial aflairs and also operates a publicity and promotional bureau. He once was reputed to have had John Montague, the golfing sensation, under a contract that was to gross him $1,000,000.

HARRISBURG, Feb. 5.--The Pennsylvania School Directors Association was on record today as strongly opposed to the Teachers Tenure Act as passed by the 1937 Legislature and upheld constitutionally this week by the State Supreme Court.

Stockton, Johnstown, rcclectcd president^ of the association before adjournment of its 43rd annual convention Thursday termed tJie net /'educationally unsound" con-, tending that it "blankets good, bud ind/indifferent teachers." · / Resolutions adopted in the legislative committee report recommended numerous changes to the law which ill be sought in future legislative session. / ; Among the changes suggested wcre: 1. Creation of a three-year proa-ministration will ask a group tionary period for newly appointed'. economists to work with government professional employes before receiving benefits from the law. 2.

Day at Capital As Interpreted By David Lawrence Continued from Page Four, with profits and able to moot payrolls out of imaginary surpluses tot indefinite periods of time. What the events of the last few days prove is that the small businesses are discontented over the present economic situation and that they hold the Administration responsible. The suggestions made for revision of tax and labor laws arc but a symptom of the feeling .that too much law-making has interfered with economic evolution. Certainly, to determine what has 'to be done, there need be no more I mass meetings.. Some day, the Ad- · proba-| ministration will ask a group of economists and furnish their advice to members of the Government, the credits at an approved institution of professional work every three years until they have received their master's, degree or its equivalent. 3. Provision to permit school districts to.formulato their own policies regarding married female teachers. 4. Incorporation of insubordina- *ion causes for dismissal. 5. Granting power to boards to determine whether a teacher's service should be tcrmincd at 62 years to the compulsory retirement age of 10. 6.. Power for school boards, upon recommendation of county or district superintendent to abolish or reduce the teaching staff In the interest of economy; In cases where enrollment has decreased courses and study discontinued, and where teachers arc not certified properly to landle the work. In addition to these recommendations -for changes of the law, the legislative committee suggested that provisions should be made for exemption of school director candidates from provisions of the bipartisan law, physical examination for all public school employes, a general increase of State aid to local school districts, and amendments to the larger unit act. Othvr resolutions recommended the following: Appointment of a school board member of the State Council of Education; greater financial support for vocational education, which will be expanded because of the increase of the compulsory school age to 18 years, and restoration of the, center "tlp-ofl" in basketball to protect the health of high school students. Congress included. When that day comes, the business men of large and small units will probably agree with the conclusions, though they may not even be familiar with the technical or scientific data by which the conclusions are reached. At the moment, the business work asks for confidence. The Administration misunderstands the term as meaning more conversation. What the business men wnnt is for the Government itself to cease giving the impression that it docs not know what it wants to do from one day to the other. Clarity und definition are the things most people desire to see in any complicated governmental operation. And when political laws and economic laws are, set up against one another for purposes of reform, it is even more vital than ever that the rules be worked ou.t slowly and less impulsively than has been the case In political government in the past West Penn Men Attend Electrical Meeting H.
