THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 193S. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNJELLSVILKE, PA. Mayor Urges City Drivers To Extend Motor Record; i , ' No Deaths in Three Years tailskin Board Denies Contract With Nurse Exists Cites Some of Requisites Of a Really Good Operator. LAST FATALITY JANUARY, 1935 "Like many other things that we do well, good driving is in a great measure the result of good habits," Mayor Ira D.'Younkin declared today as he urged the people of. Connellsville to endeavor to maintain the city's record 'of no fatal automobile accidents since January 1, 1935. The last death that grew out of a motor mishap in the city was on January 1, 1935, more than 37 months ago. "Sometimes driving seems to bring out the worst in human nature," the mayor said. "Selfishly, a driver will hug the center of the road, refuse to let others pass, weave in and out of traffic, or cut across a line of cars ·when he wants to make a turn. "The courteous driver is the better driver and usually gets places just as fast. ;! He invariably shows his driving ability by adopting good road habits." , The habits that good drivers follow, Mayor Younkin listed as: · He always gets into position before turning. ' If he plans to make a right turn he. pulls over into the lane nearest the right curb or roadside and signals well in advance. He approaches the turn slowly and makes it sharply. When approaching a left turn, he pulls into the lane nearest the center of the'road and gives the proper signal /before he reaches the corner He never cuts a left-hand turn short asthis is not only a dangerous thing ·to do but is also discourteous to other drivers as well as to pedestrians. He'respects the rights of other motorists, keeping away over on the right-hand side of the road and always^ leaving plenty of room lor i oncoming and passing traffic. Before overtaking a car he makes sure that he has plenty of room to pull out of line and get back again with ease and safety. He never crowds other cars into a ditch. He gives warning signals with his horn but never uses it unnecessarily. ' When traveling at 30 miles an hour on the open road he keeps abou five car i lengths behind the vehicle ahead--and more when traveling faster. He doesn't pass standing buses ai high speed. He realizes that coasting is dangerous and that passing another vehicle on a curve or a hilltop is attemptcc only by extremely poor drivers.

Bracmcr of the Board of Education has been authorized to make an investigation to determine whether or not Fayette county commissioners are indebted to the Connellsvillc School District for delinquent school taxes the treasurer has collected. Attorney Braemer on Monday i called the board's attention to a practice of several years ago "when the county was having financial dim- j culties."' At that time the treasurer turned over to commissioners all collections of delinquent taxes, adding that the latter group remitted the sums to the creditor political subdivision only on demand. He said he felt it would be advisable to investigate whether or not some money was not due the local board and the directorate .authorized him to make an Inquiry. In event ho finds it necessary he may employ such help as he needs, "not to exceed $75 a month," to help him complete the investigation. The solicitor said it would be im- possible to go beyond 1032 as th six-year statute of limitations dis qualifies funds due prior to tha year. Special to Tho Courier. UNIONTOWN, Feb. 10--The Bull- kin Township Board of Education, n its answer to the rule o£ the Faytte county court to show cause in he nppc'al of Miss Marguerite Gill, South ConnellsviUe, district school lurse who had been removed by the directorate, declared: / "The school district of Bullskin ownship, acting through its board, as required by law, adopted a budget of the anticipated receipts and expenditures of the school district for he year 1837-38 and made no pro- ·ision therein for compensation to be paid to a school nurse, so that the school district has no funds for payment of the salary of a school nurse." Miss Gill averred she had been retained lor the eight-month term at an annual salary of $800. The directors contend "negotiations between Miss Gill and the school district have never been completed and she has never been and s not now or has she ever been a professional employe of the school district within the meaning of the :eachcrs tenure act of 1937. The alleged contract of employment as set forth in the petition is illegal and invalid for the reason that no action was ever taken at any time by,the school board fixing the salary or compensation of Miss Gil" ns one of the appointees of the school district." The directors further contend: "The contract is illegal or invalid because it would cause the sums appropriated to special purposes in the school budget to be exceeded, in violation of section 511 of the school code." The school board asked that the petition of the nurse be dismissed nnd the costs of the proceeding be placed on her. The directors assert that never before had a nurse been employed in the Bullskin township district nnd that !t would be the only fourth class district In the State to maintain a person In this capacity. Twenty-two teachers arc employed by the board to instruct 876 pupils enrolled in the township's schools, they said. Miss Gill contends that her contract was signed under provisions ol the Tcnchcr Tenure Act which binds the board to retain her in its cm- ploy until-she reaches the age of 70 or, in the meantime, resigns. The cose will be nrgucd later before the court en bane.
