TUESDAY, MARCH 1. 193S. THE DAILY COURIER, CUNrVIULiL.SVlLiLiE;, PA- PACE THREE. Judge Ross S. SVSatthews And His Mother WiS! Be Honor Guests Tonight Visualize, if you can, n bank presi- j dent and on orphans' court judge roaming the hills of Henry Clay township in knee pants and a former common pleas judge dodging early morning chores on the farm owned by his parents in Mapletown. that will be unfolded in Markleysburg, tonight. Judges and ex-judges will cast aside court routine, the bank president will forget high finance and Democrats and Republicans will meet on friendly soil, when life-long friends, of Orphans' Court Judge Ross S. Matthews of Conncllsville, and his beloved mother, Mrs. Sarah Josephine Matthews, who celebrated her 80th birthday anniversary September 16, last, will honor them at an old time mountain chicken dinner. The affair will be held in the Brethren Church at Mnrkleysburg. Dinner will b"e served at 6 o'clock. Mrs. Matthews, who will divide the guest of honor tribute with her illustrious son, will welcome back to Marklcysburg some of the "boys" who used , to piny about her farm with Ross. While the majority of those attending arc expected from Henry Clay and Wharton townships, the affair will be attended by friends from every section of Fayetfc and Greene counties. All friends of the judge and his mother are invited. R. J. Arnett, president of the Second National Bank in Uniontown, will be toastmastcr. His assignment and the assured presence of former Judge Thomas H. Hudson promises a renewal of a friendly "feud" that has progressed for many years. At ]ast reports the score was about even. Mrs. Matthews now lives in the house in Marklcysburg where Mr. Arnett was born. Ross was born on a farm in Henry Clay township, near the Maryland line and lived there until he became 18 or 20 years of age. He taught school in his home district for three terms and then moved, to Connellsville, where he became affiliated with the law firm of Sterling, Higbcc and Brown. After Mr. Brown's death the firm was known for many years as Sterling, Higbcc and Matthews. The speaking program contains the names of ex-Judge Thomas H. Hudson, Ross Fike, Squire Joe Humbertson, Amidec Sccse, the guests of honor and others. For many years "Bob" Arnett and "Tom" Hudson have checked the boyhood antics of each other in their respective counties. When one scores a "complete scoop" on the other at any affair the winner of that fray usually comes out second best at the next Catherine. Unofficial reports are that Mr. Arnett won the last debate. However, this time he will be reinforced by the orphans' court judge and its is beginning to look as though some high, wide and fancy ribbing is in store for the assembled guests. It is a get-together by boyhood friends for a farm lad who by sheer determination elevated himself to the bench of the orphans' court and a distinct gesture of the honor and high esteem of that farm boy's beloved mother. TEACHERS'HOPES' DIMMED BY RULING . HARRISBURG, March 3.--Hope of thousands of Pennsylvania teachers lor acceptance by the State Supreme Court of an appeal from a Superior Court decision denying them increments under the Edmonds Act was dimmed when the Harrisburg School District upheld the decision as "correctly determined."

March 1.--"Since inventions have developed somewnat faster than modern practices in the use of mechanical creations, education faces the new decisive challenge of developing human adapiations necessary for the safety and preservation of human life," said Dr. Lester K. Ada, Superintendent of Public Instruction, today. A conception of the proportions of this challenge to education may be seen in the following facts: 36,000 fatalities and 1,000,000 injuries are th« annual toll on the highways of America; J3.000 fatalities and approximately 1/iOO.OOd injuries are the annual loll of accidents in the home of America; and 15.000 fatalities and one-naif million mjujries are the grim ha:vest ol factory machinery e:.ch year. It may be added here that an average of one schoolhouse a d.iy burns in the Uniled States; th.it muiders average thirty-live per day in the United Slates, and more than' 300 per day in the world at large. We should not lose sight, in studying the responsibilities of modern education, of the hazards of earthquakes, floods, blizzards, and famines; of widespread dangers from infections; hazards at sea; and tin- devastations of modern warfare. Those costly tolls are the price of pi-ogress. Can education succeed in reducing Ibr- price without dlscour: Ring the prog/ess" This CANOE'S DOG TRIAL WINNER AT SCOTTDALE SCOTTDALE, Mar. 1.--The first field trial for bird dogs, held by the Scottdale Sportsman's Association on Sunday at the Klnn farm near Hawkeye, was a decided success, despite inclement weather.

It is the responsibility of education to provide safety education through the establishment of snfe and s.ini- tary school plants and equipment. "More important than these external safety facilities arc the heallh services that arc provided in the program of learning itself. Here emphasis should be placed on ways and means of protecting individuals from disease, removing physical defects, and safeguarding human beings from mechanical dangers. More specifically, classes may be organized in the field of safety education where students may become impressed tot only with the prevalence of dangers, but with the means of preventing human exposure to them. "The promotion and maintenance of individual health for seriously defected children may also be urged. Vision and hearing mny be developed to a normal stage and other physical defects corrected by proper measures early administered. Mental hygiene may be provided for the purpose of adjusting school work to the capacities and interests of the individuals. Other opportunities for health and safety education might be made available through general instruction in the preservation and promotion" of health, physical education, and playground activities. Projects in biology and science, and the --pedal preparation of health workers and instructors who may be in school and out, are also effective means of meeting this- imperative new challenge lo education."
