Trained Household Workers Major S^ In Countless Homes Prime need in countless homes throughout the nation is trained household workers, Faycttc county housewives were told Tuesday night at a meeting in the Uniontown courthouse. The speaker was Dr. Amcy Watson, Pennsylvania supervisor of the WPA Household Demonstration Project. This undertaking, aimed at the proper training of girls and women for work in private homes, is sponsored m Pennsylvania by the Department of Labor and Industry, Dr. Watson, a doctor of philosophy, is on leave of absence from Swarthmore College, to head this work She has conducted exhaustive surveys on household aid problems and many of her findings have been adopted by the United States Department of Labor. Under the plan outlined to the Faycttc county women by Dr Watson, Household Trjining Centers--sponsored by local groups--wil be set up in this section for the adequate household training of girls and women fiom relief rolls These women, aged from 18 to 45 and selected on the basis of need, will undergo an eight weeks' intensive training course m household management. At the end of the training period they will be available for private employment While undergoing the course, they will be paid a WPA "security wage " One of the principal objectives of Ihe project, Dr. Watson told her audience, is to aid in setting up standards of household employment ·which \vill make it more attractive as a field for %vomen workers After undergoing the training period, the \vomcn will be enabled to work as competent housekeepers Housewives too will be assured adequately trained domestic help In shoit, she declared, the projec Is to be setup for rendering a community service, since, up to now there has been no such training center in this district. Some of the duties to be Caught the enrollces wil be proper methods of craning rooms laundry work, simple household repairs, child care, cooking, horn management and etiquette Dr Watson explained that the cn- rollees'would be in groups of 20, so that personal supervision could be given each one Non-relief persons may enroll for such training, shi added, but pointed out that they would not be paid the prevailm, WPA "security wage " However, they would be cnable to take advantage of a prescribed course in child care ' There is a crying need for house hold training" Dr. Watson told he audience "Housewives " she added "will have assurance their familie and children will have proper at tention and care through the prope selection of trained workers when the Household Demonstration Projec is in operation " Surveys throughout the nation, ac " cording to her statement, disclose th so-called "servant problem" an in tensive one that nccas some adequat solution through such an undertakm as the WPA household demonstrate units Similar setups are already i operation throughout eastern Penn sylvama, particularly around Phila dclphia. All have p-oved successfu since women trained have been ab sorbed by homes immediately aftc the training courses were terminate! Your Income Tax Automobile Deductions With the number of automobi! owners registering in the million the question of deductions for th cost of operation and maintenance a motor car frequently arises. Th purchase price of an automobil whether it is to be used for busine; or pleasure, cannot be deducted fro: gross income.

Claims Tax Plan Hides New Deal "Purge" of Enemies Continued from Page One ves Allen T Trcadway, Mass, rank Crowther, N Y, Harold nutson, Minn, Daniel A. Reed, N Roy O Woodruff, Mich Thomas V, Jenkins, Ohio, and Lloyd Thurs- n. la Accompanying the majority report, ue today, will be a separate prcsen- ition of the views of two Demo- rats, Representatives JohnW. Mc- ormack Mass, and Arthur P Lameck, Ohio, who join the Rcpubli- ans in opposing the tax on closely eld corporations As a substitute Jicy propose that the existing rev- nue laws, which contain a provision arrymg heavy penalty imposts on orporations which accumulate sur- luscs for surtax avoidance purposes, be strengthened The Republican report maintained hat the only road to rccovciy is continuous, unwavering' cncour- gemcnt to business "The most important and far- caching way m which such cncour- gement can be given is by reliev- ng business of the restrictions and mpediments which this «dm!nktra- on has placed in its wav, foremost mong which is the present policy of pressive taxation," the icport said · We of the Republican minority re of the opinion that the cheapest, nd in the long run the most produc- ivc, investment which the Congress tself could make in relieving the resent distressed conditions would e the absolute repeal of the undis- ributcd profits tax and the restora- ion of the 12Vi per cent limit on apital gams "If coupled with such action the Chief Executive would find some way to still the fear in the public mind and to convince the people of he country that persecution of busi- icss would cease, that there would )e an end of attempts to regiment ndustry, agriculture, and every other normal activity, and if it could be made certain that no further jt- cmpts would be made to consolidate all powers of government in the lands of the Executive--then the downward spiral of business would cease, employment would increase, he need for greater relief exptrndi- ures would be obviated, and we would be on our way to the 'more abundant life' of which we have icard so much and have seen so ittle " The present undistributed profits ax is from 7 f to 27 per cent, supcr- mposcd on normal taxes ranging Yom eight to 15 per cent The new tax Jill would raise the normal rates for Corporations "armng less .nan $25,000 a year and exempt .hem from the undistributed profits levy, bigger corporations would pay a 20 per cent undistributed profits tax but get credits reducing it in proportion to the dividends they distribute Tlie present capital gains principle of taxation .it individual surtax rates is unchanged in the bill except that a limit of 40 per cent is provided for persons of large income. Recalling the warning they issued when the undistributed profits tax was imposed, the Republicans said: 'Our warning--accurately prophetic--was completely ignored. Had it been heeded, the country would not today be faced with a depression of the deepest magnitude--a Franklin D Roosevelt depression. ' The devastating results of the operation of the undistributed profits tax during the past two years have furnished an unanswerable argument in support of our demand for its unconditional repeal 'The present bill constitutes a tacit admission by the majority of t h e i r gricv ous and inexcusable blunder In enacting this pernicious law They have been forced by hostile public opinion to most Inglorious retreat . . . ." The principle of the levy has been retained, the minority said, for "face saving " The report denied that the bill "in any way reducis the total tax burden on corporations, cither large or small" "Another feature of the bill to which we object most strenuously is the proposed penalty tax, imposed in addition to all other taxes, on the undistributed earnings of business enterprises owned by families or a few individuals," the report said "The truth is that the proposed penalty tax is in the bill simply because of the vindictive attitude of the treasury department at having failed to prove an unreasonable retention m two cases prosecuted in the courts under the present Section J02. (The penalty section) "There is n widespread feeling, also, that another purpose of the proposed penalty tax is to provide the Administration with a means of retaliation against certain corporations controlled by a lew Individuals wl o differ politically with the Administration and who have resisted certain New Deal policies with which they do not agree. If this be so and we have no reason for doubting it, the proposed tax takes on the character of a political weapon for 'purging' the business structure of the Nation of some of the outstanding opponents of the Administration. "It will result in forcing family concerns and others which are owners ontrolled Into the hands of larger, more widely owned concerns, thus ncouraging and increasing monopoly, an evil to which the / d - mimstration purports to be opposed " Ninth District Coal _ Production /Falls .Off Sn 1937, Report Shows i| Class Participates Co il pioduction m the Ninth Bituminous District in 1337 amounted to b C3( 004 tons a decrease of 427,| 527 tors from the 1930 figtue of 7,- OG4,131 tons, according to figures made pubhc [odny by stalc Mme In . spector W T McGee A two-act opcietta, entitled "It | Theic weie live fatal accidents last Inppencd in Hollond," will be pre- T ycii a:, compared with nine the cnted Thursday night it 8 o clock pievious ye ir with the distuct rank- n the Dunbar Township High School mg second in the State m the lon- \uditorlum at Lciscnrmg No 1 by | nngc per fatality.
