TUESDAY,' FEBRUARY S, 193S. THE DAILY COURIER. CONNELLSVILLE. PA. PAGE THREE. Uncle Sam's Rangers To Lose Horses, Be "Mounted" in Autos By FRED BAILEY United Press Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON, Feb. 8.--Secretary of Interior Harold L. Ickes sang the "swan song" yesterday for the picturesque cowboys who ride the wqst- crn range for Uncle Sam. Automobiles, hc announced, will replace horses as the range riders' mounts this spring. His announcement put it this way: NEWS OF THE COURTS Speclal to Tho Courier. UNIONTOWN, Feb. 8.--Brought together by Judge Harry A. Cottom as a result of an experiment being tried in domestic relations court here, two couples waived hearing of their marital disagreements and, arm jurist. When domestic relations court nvi^Vhe FecSal range riders «» TM- walked smingly from the swing into action this spring the courtroom equipped with some patter of horses' feet will be sups P le » dld P ointcrs from thc P lcascd plementcd by the putter of motor' cars." Thc chaps, thc spurs, the bandanna and the wide sombrero--accountrc- monts of thc cowboys famed in song and story--will be laid away among the moth balls, relics of a by-gone- day. The cowboy, as he was known ·when cowmen were building the west, soon may join the Indian scout of Kit Carson's day in history. About the only places left him now in his typical attire are thc dude ranches and Hollywood movie lots. In motorizing his cowhands, Ickes will be following thc example set by modern "cattle rustlers" who have turned to trucks and automobiles to raid ranchers' herds and speed stolen cattle to market. "Increased economy in patroling and surveying wide areas, some with roads and some without, will be attained by providing the range rider with gas-burning instead of hay- burning transportation," Ickes said. The horse, however, will not completely pass out of thc picture. Ickes conceded there arc places a horse can go where an automobile can't. "So." hc said, "when tho range rider- hits thc trail this spring in his automobile his favorite horse will enjoy the scenery from a trailer." When thc ranger has driven his automobile to the end of thc road hc will mount his horse to push on into thc badlands. This, Ickes said, will insure greater efficiency in thc riding of 120,000,000 acres of Federal range land upon which 9,000,000 cattle, sheep, horses and goats graze. Thc range riders arc the "G-men" of 11 great open spaces. They supervise brandings, arc present to settle disputes and hunt down rustlers. Many of them are old cowpunchers. Mike Grady Gives Kiwanians Laughs And Philosophy In a talk that balanced humor against philosophy and save Kiwan- ians some serious angles to think nbout even as he sent them into waves of laughter at some Irish quip, Mike Grady, master mechanic for the Pennsylvania Railroad at Canton, Ohio, spoke here Wednesday before the weekly session of the Kiwanis Club. He reverted to verse when the occasion suited him and some of his ·offerings "brought down the house" while others, of a serious vein, burned deep into the minds of the audience. Speaking of life he declared "the principal consideration is not how much we make but show we shall live. 1 know of no way a man can do more good than associating with each other as you do here. My kind of right living man is a man who believes in living and let live, one who belongs to some lodge, who associates ·with some church, who votes on election day, who send his children to school, pays his debts until he's broke and respects his neighbor's religion and beliefs." "Mike,"--as he declared ho preferred to be called--displayed a gavel made of the wood of a pillar from a front porch post at the home ol former President McKinley. lie said the former President often placed his hand on that post while standing on the porch talking. Other memories include boyhood associations with many men who became leaders In the 'Nation. ECZEMA ITCHING QUICKLY RELIEVED Thousands Praise TJiis Well Known Cream Eczema Itching, akin itching.

Forensic Directors, Southwest District, WillMeel Thursday A conference ol county directors embraced in the southwest district ol the Pennsylvania Forensic Music League will be held Thursday at California State Teachers' College at the call of Arthur S. Gilmore of California, district director. The district embraces Fayette, Beaver, Allegheny, Westmoreland, Somerset, Greene and Washington counties. Plans will be formulated for the annual district eliminations that must be concluded by April 16 so that winners will be certified for the State-wide eliminations at Grove City on Friday and Saturday, April 29 and 30. The question for debate this year is "Resolved, That the Several States Should Adopt a Unicamcral System of Legislation." SCOn'S SCRAP BOOK By R.J.SCOTT opened before him, Judge Cottom called .'ill husbands and wives before the bench and administered the witness oath. Then, to their consternation and surprise, he directed them to "sit together" in the space usually alloted to grand jurors. Two couples grinned sheepishly, looked sidewise at each other-actual in flirting fashion--and, soon were oblivious to their surrounding as they discussed their mutua' troubles. These were the ones to w, '.k from the curtroom bent on giving themselves another opportunity to make their marriages successful. But there was no such happy end- it 2 for four other'couples who glared at each other--if they looked at all-and who had slumped into the chairs designated by the court. There they continued to sit, ignoring the judge' invitation to "talk together in an effort to work out your own salvation." "But if we can save two--or even one--marriage from going completclj o i the rocks," Judge Cottom said "I'll be satisfied our experiment is a huge success." Fayette county judges arc appalled at the large number of cases tha reguarly are slated in domestic rela tions court becouse of an apparent in ability of principals to adapt them selves to their mutual troubles o make an effort to iron out the dim culties besetting the marital pathway "No marriage is literally or figura lively a bed of roses," the kindl judge said Saturday. "Success is du mainly to the ability of both the ma and wife to ndapt themselves t double teamwork and pull togcthe in an effort to hurdle any ob'lacl confronting them. It takes patience common sense and good judgment t work out their own salavation an they can easily solve some of the! troubles by just sitting down an talking it over without exhibiting an gcr and hot-hcadedness." This was the gist of the advice th president judge handed down from the bench to the two couples wh were reunited and happily went thcl way Friday from domestic relation court to "give it another try." New experiment was tried in do mestlc relations court which, if sue ccssful, is expected to eliminate th long drawn out talcs of woe and grief that, each term are related from witness stands by complaining husbands and \vives. The wife sits at the prosecutor's table while the husband takes the seat occupied by defendants in litigations. Counsel for each are called before the bench to explain the marital situation and clarify circumstances lor the presiding judges. Through this plan. Judge Harry A. Cottom last week was able to make disposition of six cases in the time that heretofore had been alotted to one because ol the witnesses that paraded to the stand to be questioned, cross-examined and, in many instances, make voluntary contributions to the testimony by harpooning the other mate ol the marriage ceremony. Judge IV. Russell Carr arranged side-bar conferences in courtroom No. 3 when a special effort was put lorth to effect a reconciliation between men and wives who, apparently, had come to the parting of the ways. In the past, these cases, which attracted large numbers of curious and enter- wives charged and counter-charged illicit activities to each other that, on several occasions, revealed experiences that proved shocking to both court and counsel. In the present plan no opportunity is afforded couples, who have agreed to vent their rage, anger and jealousy on each other in an attempt to further their particular side with the court. "I believe the new experiment will work out for the best interest of everyone concerned. "It greatly aids us in expediting the long list of hearings usually scheduled in domestic relations court." And proof of his statement was found in the large number of cases disposed of yesterday by the three judges in the time that in the past usually was required for disposition of a single problem presented by a couple unablc to adjust their troubles without help ol the courts. Because naturalization hearings were conducted in courtroom No. 2, domestic relations court was held in the orphans court room with Judge H. H. Dumbauld presiding. Attorneys Dan McDonald and Prank M. Lardin have been commended lor the services they rendered the courts in aiding District Attorney James A. Rcilly in disposing of the heavy list in domestic relation^ court. Attorney McDonald served as special prosecutor in Judge Dumbauld' courtroom where hc ably represented the county prosecutor's office i: more than 12 cases. Attorney Lardin, likewise, efficiently disposed o as many hearings before Judge Can in courtroom No. 3. The two attorneys were named Thursday by District Attorney Rcilly , to lend temporary aid to his office in disposing of the marital rases.

ODDITIES IN THE NEWS A complete tabulation of the 1937 game kill was ordered by the Pcnn- .ylvania Game Commission at its recent meeting, according to announcement made public today by Scth jordon, executive director of the commission. The commission has worked out a plan whereby it hopes for the first ime to learn how much tuime of all tinds was taken in a single season by the licensed hunters," Director Gordon stated. The revised law, which reduced the penalty for failure to submit the :amc-kill reports from $20 to $2, and the decision of the commission to ex- id the $2 fine only if the licensed hunters cooperate, has resulted so far in the return of over -100.000 reports, with additional ones coming in daily in large numbers. The date for submitting this information was January IS, but since :he old law was unenforceable, and oecausc the commission intends, insofar as is physically possible, to uphold the provisions of the new one, negligent licensed hunters will have a brief further opportunity to "slide under the wire" while the mechanical taubulating work is underway, which, when completed, will provide a list of the license holders who arc still delinquent. Heretofore computations of the game kill were made by tabulating several five or ten-thousand lots and comparing averages, the average per hunter thus obtained usually comparing with picliminary estimates made by field officers. However, the commission has never been wholly satisfied with that method, and holds that hunters owe it to themselves to furnish the desired information, since that is tho only practical method whereby n record of the annual game depletion may be obtained and future game restoration programs planned intelligently. "No reports whatever arc required by landowners uho hunt on their own or adjoining Inndx without license," say the Game Commission, "but they will be most welcome if such persons desire to submit them."

Common Sense About Constipation If you knew that your constipation was caused by something left out of your food, ·wouldn't it be just common sense to put that something back? Your trouble may be caused by nothing more than this. For the most common kind of constipation Is due to lack of "bulk" In the bowels--you need some food that passes on through the stomach without being digested. Kcllogg's All-Bran supplies this. It El\cs the bowels the bulky mass they need to work properly. And All-Bran also gives them the intcsttaal-tonlc. vitamin B,, which helps restore their tone. Eat All-Bran as a cereal or baked in muffins. But however you eat It. be sure you get some every day. And drink plenty of water. All-Bran is made by Kellogg In Battle Creek. Sold by every grocer.

Reason is that they respect his tobacco experience and business integrity. So surely Mr. Pinnix's views are worth your respect, too. "At every market I've ever attended," says Mr. Pinnix, "Lucky Strike has bought the ripest, mellowest tobacco offered. That's why I've smoked Luckies ever since I first became a warehouseman 20 years ago." Mr. Pinnix's statement is borne out by sworn records which show that, among independent tobacco experts --auctioneers, buyers, and ware housemen--Luckies have over twice as many exclusive smok crs as have all the other cigarettes combined. \
