Store Manager Fred Collins found Gearhart a short time after the hold- 'up, when he entered the store. The amount o£ money secured in the holdup was not made public.

Growing interest has marked re. vival services this week at the First Baptist Church. An average of over 150 persons were in attendance the first three evenings of the week. Much pleasure and profit is afforded by Thomas Filer, blind soloist, who renders the gospel in song. His solos have an appealing quality which deeply moves the congregation, and the request is made that Mr. Filer sing more often in the services to come. Mr. Filer usually plays his own accompaniment, using a piano which is placed on the pulpit platform for that purpose. Kev. Willard Whittcmore, the pastor's son, has been preaching on alternate evenings. He will preach both morning and evening on. Sunday. Tonight 5s Sunday School night, when all classes are expected to be seated together with their teachers.

Auxiliary Meets. Services Continued from Page Four, ethical or proper is a matter of opinion varying with observers. The idea itself of a President writing for newspapers on what goes on behind the scenes is not wrong. Mr. Roosevelt has every justification for selecting any business or profession he likes-if, indeed, one grants the idea that it is right for a . President to "-lake money in ways that are related to the office which he occupies. Members of Congress frequently accept money for lecturing and for the writing of magazine articles, so there can hardly be any- criticism on the theory that Mr. Roosevelt is an elected officer and should give his whole time to the job for which he draws a big salary. Tha objection will come on the ground that many people believe a President of the United States should not engage directly or indirectly in any business whatsoever while he is serving in the highest office in the land. For if it is right to have a President engage in money-making activities, it would be right for Mr Roosevelt to appear on a sponsorct radio program and accept money for fireside talks. Or it would be equally right for him to allow his name to be used for a fee on testimonials advertising certain products in preference to others. There are man; concerns which would give plenty o money to be permitted to say in advertisements what cigarets the l'r-si dent smokes or what suspenders he wears or what kind of razor he uses Maybe these are innocent and legiti mate ways to make money, but ; large segment of the American peo The regular business meeting of the auxiliary to the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen was held Thursday afternoon in the Odd Fellows Halt Music Recital.

Mr. Roosevelt's willingness to ac cept money from newspapers whc he has denounced them, and, by in direction, has given raise to tho radi nnd the movJcs, is somewhat of surprise, but inconsistency has be come a virtue hereabouts, sq It ! quite possible Mr. Roosevelt thinks it is all right now and that mayb newspapers are not so bad after all. Just why a President of the Unite tates should want to make any mor money than his salary of 575,000 year, which Is frc automobiles, an allowance for travc' ling and official entertainment an free servants, all of which costs taxpayers something around $200,00 is a bit difficult to understand. Bu it is something hardly to be eon dcmned in this instance because means that the profit motive is ris ing in Mr. Roosevelt's psycholo/o today, whereas, 'only a few month ago, the Tugwells and the o'.h brain trustcrs were talking glibly By United Prcbs.

ARGUMENTS, AT LATER DATE UNIONTOWN, Feb. 25.--Country counsel, by tin audit of Mrs. Frances S. Kciiscd's own tax duplicates for _933 and 1934--which appeared Monday after having been missing for over two years--showed a total shortage of $04,7')2.88 in cash col- ections when checked against cash credits recorded in the controller's tax ledger. This was the most outstanding-and most damaging--development in the tax hearing which, dragging over a period of several weeks, was finally closed Wednesday night by Judge H. S. Dumbauld who ordered all witnesses discharged. Arguments will be given by opposing counsel, at a date not yet set, and the court will hand down an opinion later as to whether the judgment will be opened and the American Surety Company left into a defense In the case brought against them, as bondsman for Mrs. Kcir- sted, by the county of Fayette which is seeking to make shortages in tax funds for these two years. Taking precedence in importance' over all other testimony was the audit, made since Monday, by Miss Rebecca McDowell, accountant in the office of the county commissioners, who had been instructed by the court to audit the tax duplicates which hsd been issued to Mrs. Kcirstcd. The audit was made at the request of Attorneys Dean D. Sturgis and W. Saturday, Last Day df Tkis Rousing Saving Sale Keg.

Now back in the period when the crritory beyond tho Mississippi was J nown as the wild and wooly west, was a simple matter for any cow and to throw a steer by grabbing s horns or by using a lariat . . . but id you ever hear of any of them apturing n steer by grabbing its .ail and "snubbing it to a tree?" , That's the system John Hcnch, nshicr in the Citizens' National ank, and Newton Flickinger, a armer, used to roundup the last of a ozen steers that escaped from Dorf ohm's stable a mile west of here bout a month ago. A posse of about 50 men was out aiing the missing bovine when it oubled back through the woods to- vard the pair. As it passed, Flick- ngcr managed to grab its tail but it utigcd away. Giving chase, they aught up with the steer, grabbed its .ail again and wrapped it around a mall tree. There they held it until ithcrs in the posse brought ropes ind a httltcr. But on behalf of the steer, it hould be said that it wasn't up to ighting weight. During its month of freedom, the animal dropped rom 3,000 to 700 pounds in weight The other steers which escaped at he same time were rounded up within n week after they broke from the stable. Brown Higbec nftcr duplicates had been turned over to them Monday by Mrs. Keirstcd and after the latter, under examination, declared she did ot know how much she had col- :c!ccl on them. Tho audit. Miss McDowell testified, howcd a total of $89,522.46 collected y Mrs. Keirsled on the 1933 du- licate according to the collector's wn entries. This amount, plus S2,- 50.54--a rebate shown as a credit n the controller's tax ledger for the uplicatc that year--brought the otal to $92,370. The total of $92,379 was composed f collections totaling $41,160.75 in Iniontown's First and Second wards, 7,690.95 in Third and Fourth wards, 24,403.44 in the Fifth and Sixth vards and $19,123.86 in Seventh and Rhth wards. Figures in the controller's tax edger,( Miss McDosvell declared, repealed cash credits on the 1933 du- ilicato ot $72,246.21 and, in addition, i2.145.18 commission (equivalent to :ash) for a total cash credit on this duplicate of $74,391.89.

GREENSBURG, Feb. 25.--In the cross suits ot Georgia ArrtnRton against Charles McLean and William Arrington against Charles Arrington all ot Donegal township, a jury returned verdicts in favor of the defendants before Judge Charles E Whitten.

Mr. Roosevelt fortunately has th urge to engage in money-making. Sc do millions of other citizens, and no a few of them will say it may b perfectly all right for on cx-Presi dent to do it, but they arc not s sure it is good taste for a Presidcn or that it is the kind of thing Washington or a Lincoln or a Wilsoi would ever have done. But her again one has no right to assume tha Mr. Roosevelt wants posterity to con sider him n Washington or a LincoJ or a Wilson, and maybe in this ma tcrialistlc age dollars are more im portant than ideals anyway.
