SIXTEEN PAGES. 1937 NUMBERS FINES ENOUGH FOR PAYROLL Possible to F i n a n c e County Office Staff For One Month. ALL NOT PA ID, RECORD SHOWS UNIONOWN, Feb. 11.--K numbers pool defendants arraigned before the Fayette county courts during the Tour criminal terms of 1937 were to pay all costs and fines in their various cases, the aggregate sum--$17,640.95--would be sufficient to meet the payroll of the county building for one month with $600 to spare. The two-week payroll ol the courthouse staff reaches approximately $8,500--a total of $17,000 for the month. But the fines and costs have not all been paid. . Of the huge amount imposed, only $8,042.03 has been received--not even sufficient to meet the two-week payroll. And records reveal that $9,441.50 remains as just so many figures on the books in the office of Clerk of Court Howard Sparks. Added to this amount, too, is the sum of $157.42 in costs that \vere transferred to county taxpayers by grand furors who rc- fused to return true bills in a number of cases and, in addition, thoughtfully removed all costs from the defendants. During the year 1937, fines totaled $15,436.85 and costs, $2,204.10. . The sum of $6,261.30 has been paid on account of the fines and $1,708,73 on the cos's. Unpaid fines equal $9,175.55; unpaid costs, $265.35. During the March term of last year, all fines, reaching $1,850, were cleared from the records together with $517.90 in costs, leaving an unpaid balance on the latter of only $78.70. So much for the boys who became entangled in the toils of the law at that session. During the June term, the "numbers" lads came across equally as promptly when a total of $2,775 in fines was marked "paid" and costs of $720.02 were forthcoming, leaving on the latter only the i'jm at $33.26. During the September term, $611.85 was paid in fines, leaving yet for attention a fine of $1,000 imposed on Ernest Fcelo, first "numbers" pool defendant to feel the "cracking down" process of the courts which saw fit to impose the'heavy penalty bolstered by a one-year term in Allegheny county workhouse--establishing a precedent for other cases to follow. Costs of $303.86 were paid, leaving » balance of only $29 for consideration by o defendant. Earl H. Smith, who has paid $6 on account of $35 costs imposed on him when the grand jury returned an Ignoramus. The December term, however, told another story. Weary of the drag imposed by the courts, the hard-hit local "numbers" pools began their fight for existence against the heavy penalties that went to furnish what was expected to be a lucrative source of income for the county. Fines of $9,200 were imposed. Only $1,024.45 has been paid. Costs reached $413.82, of which $238.87 placed on the taxpayers--having a balance of $125. The records still show unpaid fines of $8,175.55. Perhaps this very definite reaction to the promptness previously shown is due, for the most part, to the fact that practically all defendants were incarcerated in either the workhouse at Blawnox or county jail. Jobless Youth Builds Auio.

Kent University were a bit concerned today for the "Men's Protective Association" hos come into being. It proposes "protection" for members against alleged co-cd odcnses, to wit: Gold-digging, last minute "date" breaking, standing up "dates" and flirting with another while on a 'date," plus other items. Men students get a list of questions monthly and it their answers heap guilt upon a co-cd or co-eds, a "blank list" does the rest. The men must steer clear of the "guilty" or pay a penalty. Geologist Says Sleet Usually Is Only Glaze By" tlntted LEXINGTON, Ky., Feb. 11.-- Ice that forms on streets, causing pedestrians to lose their equilibrium and automobiles to skid precariously, may be blamed in most instances on ordinary glaze and not on sleet as generally is the case, according to David M. Young, instructor in geology at the University of Kentucky. True sleet, Young said, falls from above as rain that has turned to ice although a mixture o£ falling ice and rain ordinarily gains this designation. But when rain is still rain when it reaches the earth and then freezes immediately upon coming in contact with objects having n temperature below freezing it is glaze. Young said. Alumni Arrange Entertainment At Next Session The committee of the Connellsville High School Alumni Association, under the direction o£ Sherrlck Fisher, hns arranged for a social hour and entertainment program to follow the business schedule Th'urs- doy, February 17.
