WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 103S. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. PAGE FIFTEEN. Many County Poultrymen Fail to Realize Profit, Farm Agent Carter 1 Says Fayette county poultrymeni met with H. H. Kauffman, poultry extension specialist of State College, on Tuesday and Wednesday, and discussed their management problems. It was explained records show that if poultrymen are to continue in business it is necessary for them to raise n flock of laying hens that are bred to lay 150 eggs per bird per year. The speaker told them that now is the proper time to determine what next year's poultry clock is going to be. One of the most critical periods in the farm poultry business is when to order baby chicks. Too many Fay- cite county poultrymen are putting their money into the business but are not getting it back out in the form of profit. Farm Agent R. E. Carter explained. To do this they must start with good healthy chicks bred to high egg production, raise them properly and fetd their laying birds balanced rations in addition to keeping them in suitable laying houses. Discussion o£ the management of laying flocks and the importance of proper selection of baby chicks was conducted by Mr. Kapffman at the meetings held in Dawson Grange Hall in Lower Tyrone township. Sandy Hill Church on the New Salem road, Clyde Brown farm near Flatwoods and the David Binns farm in Jefferson township. Appellate Court Holds Up New York Prices for Coal By United Press.

(eirsled Hearing Again Stalemated By Missing Papers UNIONTOWN, Feb. 23.--Fayettc ounty's tax hearing, which gives remise ot being long drawn out, was a*lematcd again Monday and an ad- jurnment was granted until 1:30 clock this afternoon by the court hen it developed additional records ecessary to substantiate testimony ere missing. During the interim, Mrs. Frances . Keirstcd, star witness in the cur- ent action, will continue a search or lists of taxablcs, the amount ot xcs paid and dates the money was eceived in an effort to clear up a ash deposit of $24,071.43 made by er July 9, 1934, to Thomas R. \ubrcy, then county treasurer. The total does not represent an dditional credit on the 1033 or 1934 duplicates but is, the woman tax ollecujr explained yesterday, a sum ollected over a period of months on eated land returns for the 1931 and 932 tax duplicates which already ad been satisfactorily closed and on vhich the bonds had been released. The current proceeding is the rc- ult of a petition by the American Surety Company to open judgment n the action brought by the Com- ·nonwcalth against the bonding con- ern and Mrs. Keirsted. The woman, convicted ot tax embezzlement and sentenced to Allegheny county workhouse by Ex- 'udge Thomas H. Hudson, was ·eturned here from that institution vhen she indicated she would break her long, self-imposed silence and aid n clearing up the very much muddled records in the c.ise. Mrs. Keirstcd appeared in courl yesterday in possession of the long- missing, much-desired 1933 and 193- ax duplicates which she is alleged o have concealed alter the embezzlement action had been started igainst her. She defied efforts to uncover the records, was cited foi contempt of court for failure to produce them and drew a one-yea: sentence which she defiantly sat ou n women's quarters of county jail Other receipts and checks, togcthe with the list of exonerations allowcc her on the duplicates by the oount commissioners, were admitted, wit] :he duplicates, as evidence in th learing as exhibits of the county. Attorneys Dean D. Sturgis and W Brown Higbce, special counsel en gaged to represent the county in th proceedings, -struck another snag however, in tho shape of a batch o receipts for $24,071.43 and a checl lor $21,733.73. Mrs. Keirsted testified the sum-$24,071.43--represented a cash de posit made by her on July 9, 1934, t Thomas R. Aubrey, then count treasurer, lor which she was given in return, the large batch of receipt naming individual taxables who ha paid her. To substantiate the assertion ah had made the cash deposit on July 9 1934, T,he offered county counsel th batch of receipts--all dated the sam date in the name of the taxables fo whom she had acted as an agent i collecting their delinquent taxes o the 1931 and 1933 seated land return on order of the old board of com missioners. Attorneys Sturgis and Higbce, yes terday, directed that, during the next day and a half, she endeavor to uncover the list of taxables, the amounts paid and the dates they were paid to her to apply on these 1931 and 1932 seated land returns in an effort to determine whether they had been properly entered and not confused with payments made on the 1933 and 1934 tax duplicates. Another snag, yesterday, was represented in a check for $21,738.73, made payable June 23, 1933, by Mrs. Keirsted to Thomas R. Aubrey which, it was pointed out, was to close the 1931 tax duplicate.

Examination of the city budget lor 1938 reveals Daniels and Port will be paid S750, whereas Bcighley and Swartzwclder will receive but $450, or $300 less. Inasmuch as their tenure had not- expired, they were not eligible lor the wage increase voted last year and which became effective January 1. It is illegal for an incumbent to raise his own salary. Mayor Ira D. Younkin, reelectcd last November, comes under the new scale ot $1,200 a year, whereas ha formerly received $500. Former Councilmcn Charles F. White and Arthur H. Boycr who voted for the salary increase wer« not rcolected. City Controller Fred W. Neuroth also had his pay increased to $750 automatically when the council- manic schedule was hiked.
