Dropping below the 200,000 matk or the first time in six weeks, Pcnn- ylvanla's direct relief case load rcg- stcred a sharp reduction during the vcek ending February 10. The decline, amounting to I2,6t)0 cases (44,324 persons), was the heaviest in any week since mid-December, 1935, lhe period when the Works Progress Administration was undertaking the in- tlal transfer of cases from direct re- icf to Federal projects).

UNIONTOWN. Feb. 28.--Apparently adjudged srne by a commission appointed by the couit, William G McFarland of Conncilsvillc was given three months in the county jail on charges of assault and battery and aggravated assault and battery preferred by his wife and to which lie pleaded guilty February 21 AS INTERPRETED BY DAViD LAWRENCE Continued from Page Four, ime ago by Wendell Wlllkie, prcsi- tent ot the Commonwealth and iouthcrn system, and perhaps the most realistic of all the utility men, that the Federal Government cither buy oulught the utility sys- cms in tho TVA area or that it bc- m at once the negotiation of an igicemezitjto pool government pow- and private power systems for common use at a fair rental. It isn't generally known, but engineering ex- icrts estimate that about $2,000,000 o $3,000,000 of electric power from .he TVA is going to waste annually in ttie southern area because the overnmcnt and tho private power companies do not get together on contracts for uso of the power. Every day that Mr. Roosevelt delays an adjustment of the whole problem, the taxpayers lose money, American industry loses an opportunity for a private "pump priming" of. colossal proportions--$1,000,000,000 a year may be enough to get the whole country started out of the "recession"--and, besides, there is actual danger "of .1 power shortage from a long range point of view. Surely the price of politics and the price of pride is high. The victims are the poor people now out of jobs who, in bewilderment, wonder why Government officials in warm rooms and comfortable offices can puff their pipes nonchalantly while millions of honest, law-abndlng, and cagcr-to- work American cituens drag their weary bodies and minds along from day to day in search of the employ' mcnt that never seems to come.

In commenting on this difference of $12C,000, Commissioner W. J. R. Hay said that the anticipated decrease is based on two factors. Jn the first place he said that total assessed valuation ot county property and occupations has decreased in the last assessment, although, total figures arc not as yet available on this subject. In tho second place, according to Mr. Hay, the commissioners believe that the current business recession will adversely affect a groat many Somerset county people, who would otherwise be able to pay their taxes. Mr. Hay pointed out that the commissioners very probably will not spend within many thousands of dollars of tho amount appropriated in the budget. More than $100,000 of the total estimated expenditures has been provided as a "cushion" to take care of unexpected expenses. . Uoiucll Woman Dies.
