THURSDAY EVE'G, MAR. 18, SrOTTH.VLE'S SERIOUS PLIGHT. Scotldule is faced by a very serious situation. I £ lh« proposed change In freight rate* on the products of (the Vndtod States Cast Iron Pipe Foundry Company bcpmfrs effective, that c.sUijblibhm«nt -will suffer a hanwJicap Hi at may oblige It to remove to a dls- trlot whoro the rate Increase will not apply. Such a condition will be little short ol calamitous. Giving employment to approximately 1,000 men the pipe foundry la the moat important Industry of Scottda.le. The town already tias guttered the loss of. two indu»- trles, the MoKinney blast furnace and the Old Meadow Mill, employing jointly about 700 men. Many of these mn havo had to gc elserwhero to obtain employment, a large proportion of them owning their own homes in the Mill Town. If these shrtnkag-fcs in population are omlargid by the removal of the 1ipe mill employes, the Injury that result to Scottdale business men property owner* will .lie well-nigh o. It is by no means siw- t h n t the citizens and the ViiiUJiia agtMictes of Scofctdale are stirred bo utmost activity in their protests against the proposed aerw freight rate?. C'on'ieM^ville has an interest In the efforts Stottdale ifi making in self defense. Whatever adversely affects the prosperity ot Scottdale must of Tiecesaaity Und reflection in Connells- vllle. Wo ought, therefore, to be very n n i f h concerned as to the outcome of the ptotest Scottdale has iilexl. Our Heard of Trade might wisely take tic lion that will at least indicate our smp.ithy ^ith our neighbor®, it not fll-o offer suggestion as to some meana of a ding iheiu In the struggle in -v hi-.ii they are E 3IOTOB SHOW. The motor show, scheduled to opei Maivh 2G, will bo a timely exhibition of enterprise on part of the dealers in »rs and accessories. With the o p e n i n g oC apilng only a few week* ahead tho thoughts of many peopte are beginning to turn to motor trips ami, of course, the equipment necessary to brng the most comfort nnd pleasure from these- jaunts oa the hiRhw.iys Very n a t u r a l l y they will be at- ·trn tfd to thp motor show there to Inspect the latest models of cars and, in m a n y instances, come to a definite decision w i t h respect to the tyoe and nuike of tho car they wyi next use. Others who have not yet joined Ilia i n r - o w n i n g class will frequent the show and very probably make up their minds to become purchasers. To these groups there will be added a third. The general public, always intended iu displays of thla kind, w i l l diop f u to look over the exhibits, to hear tho music aud other features of tho progtam of entertainment tfiat w i l l be provided. All will feel profited and bo glad that Connellaviile can btagi* a demonstration o? this character. The show is Quite certain to prove beneficial in other ways. It will t t l m u l a t g i h o buying of cars and at- eboonts hi preparation for the *prmg season It will aid iu over- comlug so mo of tho lethargy poosple feel about "nothing doing" in ^he retilui of business, generally. It will prove a pleasant diversion and be helpful to people who are an.xioiH ''that a somewliat brighter outlook on the Immediate future may be obtained.

Such manifestations ol loyalty cannot do otherwise than inspire the Jalttt ot others and incline them to admira- tlon for both tho person who displays (i and for the object which calls rorcn such expressions If our loyali v to Connollsville could be given these qualities, wnat could wo not ac compllah by united effort? With every cit|ze.n vitally concerned in Hi * progress of our home Institution;-, alert to every opportunity thai would be presented to speak a good \\ortl about the town and its people, eady and willing to give a- helping hdnd to every worchy object intended to advance the wet- fare of all its j esldents, woaW not Connellsville so«n be spoken or as the most enterprising, fastest-growing municipality In this section of tne State? With loyalty of the kind Mr. Kent described such a ConnellsvlUe is a possibility. YOUR INCOME TAX. Contributions and Gifts.

They are always alert to have a part in every worthwhile activity and give a gr,od account frf themselves even 1£ ihe'i membership is somewhat small. Lost sleep, like lost time and lost opportunity, caanot be fully made up, even by college students. An increasiuK number of Conuells- vllliaoH begin their leadership careers while stiidents at our higher institutions of learning and then continue in that relation by vtrture ot their inherent ind acquired qualities. That's one rea ?dn why so many are heard of after they "have completed their preparation for life's activities. LOYALTY AH APPLIED TO HOME TOWX U will detract nothing'from the strength, force or Inspiration of Sec- rotary C r. Kent's talk on "Loyalty" before th' Kiwuuls Club, to say that it cau w i t h utmost propriety be applied to the relations of tho people to Uioir homo town- of Connolls-vllle. In fact, finch application can be made with beco nlng aptness and give a new emph it-Is to the splendid lessons the apwiki'.r hutended to be conveyed by his Inspiring talk. "Stamllnp; by" one's town, its inatt- tutlQus an 1 establishments, is loyally of a type comparable to that shown wi\em we tire called upon to show our fealty to c o u n t r y in limes of emerg.- OIK-V.

PATRICK! UOOMtR COMMiTtEE Employment Agency Mirage Under Government Scrutiny By CHARLES P. STEWART Cental Frees Staff Writer. WASHINGTON, March 13--Two to eight thousand dollar jobs in South America, besides the "romance and adventure" mentioned In their circulars, are not definitely promised by the employment "services" whose literature government officials hav« beon watching recently, in the hop« ot catching them in a few plain enough mterepresentatlonti to permit legal interference with their operation*. The "aervices" ar* mighty slick, however. "Servic*" (at a price, of course) Is about all they offer--to "direct workers to pleasant and lucrative positions." Fraud orders have deprived some of the more reckless offenders of the use of the malls, but most ot them ar« too crafty to justify anything worse than solemn warnings against their activities--which the labor department's employment buieau hu iaeuetl repeatedly. * * · Employment agencies (legitimate and otherwise) naturally tiourih In tita«s when work is alack, as It now UD questionably la--at least somewhat. The "home work" gag (almost Invariably with an expensive outllt of rauterial or tools to* be bought and r-aid for first) is being utilized for all It is worth, as might be expected. Muscle Shoals and Boulder Dam (on neither of which projects are there any openings to speak of) are being exploited Industrially. However, being farther away, with a strong tangj of the unknown about It, South America seems to have lent tt:;elf especially to the employment merchants' genius. * · * The truth IB that certain jobs In South America really do pay excellent money to a very, very few highly skilled experts from this county--not $e,000 a year but as much as the same men could make In the United States, and at a rsther lower rate of living costs, It they will adapt themselves to Latin-American living conditions. The International Harvester Com- pi^ny, in its a'taff of field mechanics the Argentine Republic, probably has e:{pected them to convert into institutions with a series of Branches. Some of the difficulties of governmental -supervision of group banks were outlined to the committee, espectally ·when the group systems include state a4 well as national banks and whe they cross the boundary lines of the federal reserve districts. He thought the examiners could supwvise satis- ftuctorlly large branch banking organ- iza-tiona and that they had had expe- rieace along that line already The chief interest revealed 'by the committee membera revolves around the proteotio.n to be 'afforded !d«posit- ors rather than the opportunities for expansion of large clity ba.n-k,s(. The Impetus of the hearings is clearly the desire to work out some better system of. rural banking than exists today, lu fact the whole fiiRj»Uou hau been ntade acute by (he staKllug n-umber af bank faitoras In small cilios and towns where the banking JWicoininoda- tions are plainly inadequate, and where a tie-up wi'tih stronger ciity bantou would a3ist the flow of trade utul business as well aa protect do- posltotns, , Representative McPadt!«n hope's to get authority Irom Congress to extend tlw scoipa ot the pr«B*nt resolution so th*t if neo**g«ry after Con- «r*sa b*d adjourned ihs testimony ot bankers 1n different emotions of the country m*y b* obtained by t iei commute* tour the various tho highest average w-rkingmen'B corps in the work!--the 1 t*t trained and most Intelligent aud i ruBtworthy.

These locutlone, manufacturers believe, offer opportunities for establishing: Individual automatic market centers in carrying out the "emergency chopping idea" which is looked upon a-i the most promising development in machine merchandising.

The convenience affordwi to apartment, dwellers in making theeo necessities immediately available at all nouns of the day or night should result In stimulating the uae of automatic venders, it wae stated. Tho recent annual exp'oeltlon of coin-machine operatois and manufacturers in Chicago indicated the interest taken by the Industry in adapting machfnca to dispense- perlBhablo foodstuffs. Manufacturers revealed plane incorporating refrigerating unite for vending machine t to retail bev- orages, Ico cream, an I frozen confections. Some of tho leading beverage manufacturers are reported to be watering closely t it e experiments leading toward 1ho development of miniature automatic eoda fountains which mix carbonated water and syrups.
