Work for Harmony; No Candidate Endorsed Continued from Page One. Judge Arthur James, gubernatorial candidates, to attend the conference but it developed that both had made previoui .ippointmcnts. In their stead appeared Attorney E. Kent Kane, McKean county assemblyman, as Pinchot's representative, and J. Gordon Mason, representative of Judge James. They spoke in behalf of the candidates at the morning session. ' Willis E. Topper, Westmoreland county Young Republican chairman and presiding officer, expressed thanks on behalf of the Westmoreland county organization to the Allegheny county group for the cooperation and assistance given towards making the conference a success. During the morning and afternoon sessions many Young Republican leaders were called upon for brief talks, The principal speaker was William S. Livengood, register of wills of Somerset county, who delivered an impassioned plea for the return to sound, honest and efficient government. He proposed a five-point program which he felt would attain that goal. It was: 1. Constitutional government. 2. Youth in government. 3. Decentralization o£ relief, 4. Reduce taxes and cost of government. 5. Return the Republican party to power. Declaring that the country was slipping away from a democratic form of government he said that only three things--youth, constitutional government and the Rcpublicai party--could restore the democracy that had been enjoyed by the Nation prior to the New Deal. Delving into history he pointed ou' that youth played a large part in the framing of the United States Constitution. Of the 55 delegates gathered at the Constitutional Congrcs. at Philadelphia in 1787, 14 were ovc: 50 years of ago, 20 were between th age-; of 40 and 50 years and 21 were between the ages of 26 and 40 years. "Youth today is ready and willing to have a share in constitutional gov crnment," he said. He urged that all good Republican swear allegiance to party principle and not to one person.

He said every persoi had the right to support whom the. pleased at the primaries but tha every true, loyal Republican shoul set aside petty grievances and giv wholehearted support to the nomi necs selected by the people and wor together to bring victory at the gen eral election. Referring to one of the 1C plank making up the 1938 Stale platform o the New Deal, he read with ridicule "We pledge to continue the sam economies practiced during our past administration." Clarifying his position as to relief he declared he was for it 100 per cent but only in bonafide cases. He charged it is the duty of the Republican party to purge the system that permitted the present existing conditions. He urged a reduction in taxation but only after the public debt is well In hand. He cautioned against a shifting of taxes 'as the New Dealers had done because it is still the "little fellows" who shoulder the burden. Reducing the cost of government would provide the means for lowering taxes and by decreasing the number of government bureaus, the cost of government would be lessened, he asserted. Joseph Micle, Anthony Rocco Guadino. Rega and Lloyd Shaw, chairman of the court, had charge. Seek Road Improvement. Dr. W. A. March, president of the Good Roads Association, with a committee composed by G. Wyhe Overly, Orrie Zuck, Dr. William H. Robinson and Paul Doncaster called on County Commissioners Frank K.

They learned no allocation had been made in this year's budget lor this road by ihe State. When informed that the committee represented people from Wheeling, W. Va., to Somerset, who had been anxious to have this road improved and that people of southwestern Pennsylvania felt it a shame fiat a main highway was in such a deplorable condition, the commissioners were sympathetic and stated that they would get in touch with the Highway Department on the m.ittT. The 12 miles of bad road is in Westmoreland county. When the frost leaves the ground it is thought the road will entirely crumble up. Two Sets of Twins.
