Then, too, each party will elect a State committceman and a committcewoman together with committeemcn and committcewomcn from each precinct in Fayettc county as a prelude to the biennial reorganization of the two major parties. The Second Fayette District names three members of the State Legislature while the First District that embraces the territory in the vicinity of Point Marion, Smithflcld, Fairchance and environs selects one Serving m the State Legislature are Matthew J. Welsh of Connellsville, J. Harold Arnold of near Flatwoods and Harry Matthews of Un- nontown, Second District, and Harry J Brownfield of Fairchance, First District. All arc Democrats.

POTTER United Press Staff Correspondent. HARBISBURG, Feb. 25 --Initial activity in the coming battle between the 'major political parties for the General Assembly balance of power held by Democrats begins Saturday with circulation of nominating petitions for the May 17 primary. Nominees for all 209 House seats and half of the 50 Senate positions will be selected at the primary pre.- Jiminary to the November balloting to determine whether Democrats retain the legislative majorities they wrested from the G. O P. in 1936 for the first time since before the Civil War. Impartial observers give the Administration party a "good chance" of holding its Senate majority because Democrat? hold 16 of the 25 contested seats and nave 18 "holdover" members in the upper chamber--thus election ot eight Democrats would retain a constitutional majority for the party while the G O P needs 19 to regain control There is less speculation over the outcome of the scramble for House scats, although Democrats hold a comfortable majority of 154. The 1937 reapportionraent adds the 209th seat in the House chamber. Candidates for Assembly must qualify for positions on the primary ballots by paying a $25 filing fee and submitting nominating petitions carrying the required number of signatures at the State Elections Bureau here before 5 P.
