Maust, and a lifelong resident of Connellsvillc, died Friday afternoon at 1 o'clock at her home, 811 Crawford avenue, West Side. Although in ill health since May, her condition did not become critical until Monday night. Since then she had been confined to her bed. She was born In Connellsr- ville January 12, 1864, and 55 years ago last May was married here to Mr. Maust, whose home was .it Marklcysburg. They went to housekeeping in the West Side, then New Haven, on the site of the present fire station.

Elliott, pastor of the First Methodist Episcopal Church, officiating. Burial will be in Hill Grove Cemetery. Today in Washington As If Is Interpreted By David Lawrence Continued from Page Four, had a Republican Congress in name, the majority of the Senate was a coalition of Western Republicans and Democrats. Today, the issues are not any less clear. The Republicans of the East and the conservative group want a high protective tariff, they want to do awa" with the Hull reciprocity agreements, they do not believe is a subsidy to agriculture and they want the Wagner Act buried and its sponsors hanged politically higher than Haman. As tor the Republican progressives, they see some merit in many of the measures proposed by the two Roosc- vclts. These progressives lean more toward the Wagner law, though they want some corrections made and abuses cut out. There is a friendliness to the reciprocity idea in the Middlewcst nnd a belief that concentration of capital in modern enterprises, if economically desirable, must yield to some forms of social control. Many observers think it's all n matter of what personality is chosen to lead the party In 1940 and what mistakes Mr. Roosevelt has made by then. They brush aside talk of new principles or adjustment of these fundamental issues between conservatives and progressives, between East News of Tri-Town Community and West.

D. 3. knowledge of politics will be able to tell the Republican policy committee that a Republican party which goes to the country In the next election wiUi a lukewarm endorsement of the Wagner labor relations law is going to lose the labor vote, which nowadays Is better organized for political action than it ever has been before throughout our whole history. The average voter knows a friend of labor in politics when he sees one and he is not going to bo misled by a carefully phrased scries of sentences that carry water on both shoulders. All this the Republican policy committee will discover m due time, but what they may not feel till they get further along in their deliberations is the impact of the conservatives, who have been such an Important factor in money-raising heretofore. The younger members of the party are already trying to get a better system of campaign contributions deviied so that large sums will not be accepted from men associated with big corporations, even though, ai permitted under the law, they give money in their individual capacities. The Frank committee may make the mistake )of compromising this or next with the ultraconservative viewpoint, which appears so unbudgmg today on fundamentals. But this will all be educational value in building up the strength of the progressive wjng of the party, which must dominate the platform, name he candidate, and give every evidence of sincerity that its heart-throb lor the masses is a counterpart of the man who really founded the ~ years ago.
