CITY AUBPORX TAKING HIGH HANK Ccnnellsville Airport takes on new and greater significance with the entry of the War Department Into the picture. Satisfied that the flying field will be a valuable adjunct to Its service, the Array Air Corps has leased a three-acre plot on the 204-acre tract ov/ned by the city along the Unlontown road and.will establish a base.there, ·wltK'amaintenance-crew.orsO men..indlcatlng.the urgency p£ their desire. for_beginnlng work -immediately · on the necessary buildings, officers otthe Air Corps who came here Tuesday to look the fleld'oyer remained until the lease "was signed, and carried' It back to Washington with thorn. Preparations arejfo be begun at once for the erection of an administration building and barracks.involving an expense qr?7fj;ooo. --.._::'"· " ' : ' i . ·· The field has impressed army officers as ideally located, just at the"foot-of-'the mountains, and expertly arranged. Commenting on/it, Major Evers Abbey, one of tho officers here to lease the base site,-is quoted as saying: -·. "This is a beautiful -airport and tho engineering has been wonderful. ' With' one exception, that at Butte, Montana, it is the finest on which I have ever landed." "·· 'Originally ?506,000 in Federal funds was allocated for the development of the fleid. Since then the Government' provided steel for the hangar, at a cost of $25,000, with an arrangement whereby the county and the city will boar tho expense of erecting it; amounting to $1,700. The sum to be appropriated- for.the army base will bring the total to more than $600,000.' The end is:nofyet.' A large'sum will be required_by the Army-Jor equipment. .T- In conference, with Mayor .Younkin the officers indicated they "are elated--that they look" upon Connellsville Airport as among the best- ""-.---"-. - ~~ l~ Credit for the interest _the Army^ has shown Is giyen .to -Representative";!.

Professional-Women's Club., "I am proud of ttie," .said .Miss Margaret Rltonour of TJnlontown, the state chieftain: "I Enow of no equal of yours'iri'the State." She was referring to. the activities of the club. She followed this quotation ·with a -statement that tho Pennsylvania Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs is" at the head ot the "national organization. That would make'the Connellsville club still more outstanding. ;._ The program the club arranged for the occasion, Its annual banquet at Trinity Lutheran Church, revealed the ·wj[de scope of its efforts to make Connellsville a better place_ In which to live. After Miss Ritenour had voiced her appreciation of the work being done, there was a panel discussion in which l«l business and professional men and a woman participated, diagnosing retail business, transporta- ttonrhousing, Industries, health and recreation. The club ami-its officials won the commendation of those at the banquet. They have the best wishes of all who know of their good work. :r - CIVIL SERVICE SCHOOL PROMISES The United States Civil Sen-Ice Commission has issued a warning to tho public not to be misled by promises of government positions by so-called civil service schools, their agents or their advertisements. No school, the commission says, Is able to fulfill any such promises. The commission also warns the public against schools or agents that would lead one to believe they represent the Government or are connected with the Government, in any way, or that give assurance of passing Civil Service examinations on completion of the school courses. " Extravagant claims are bringing such schools under scrutiny. The Post-office Department has filed fraud charges against the most flagrant alleged violators _ ·~-l Persons who want Clyll Servlce'informatlon can'get It afeth'o Postofflce here or'at any first or second-class office. OE upon request the commission will place anyone's name on- a mailing list -whereby he or she will receive notice of coming examinations, together with other information needed., Communications should be sent to the commission in'Washlngton. , - IT AIRCRAFT INDUSTRY BOOMING · -_ Nineteen thirty-seven marked the peak of the aircraft industry in tho United States. Deliveries of'planes, engines and spare psrts totaled $115,000,000, Just two tenths of one per cent less than, double those for 193C. The depression notwithstanding, present production and delivery schedules-indicate the sales, volume for the first half of 1938 will be 50 per cent above the corresponding period of last year.' That tho industry is booming is indicated by $125,000,000 in-unfilled orders at the end of January. Tho figures are supplied by the Aeronautical Chamber of Commerce. ' With recent announcement of Germany's air strength, followed by Britain's appropriation of $510,000,000 for Us air defense, the United States will undoubtedly step up its plane building. The Navy has asked for $30,000,000 additional for patrol planes. The House Naval Affairs Committee has recommended- $10,000,000 for experimental craft, including greater bombers than ever attempted, The industry is producing at the rate of $158,000,000 annually and could be stepped up to $345,000,000. We are becoming air-minded. r. CAR EXCHANGE ENDS SATURDAY ~_ National Used Car Week is nearlng" the' end. Saturday night will mark the close. Connellsville dealers have been cooperating In the"-nation-wide movement, the aim of which has been to reduce the surplus of used automobiles and make possible the movement of new cars. Until this situation is remedied there will be stagnation in the industry and thousands of men will remain idle. ·,,, That .is only one phase which should Interest the pros- pective'buyer. Another is the opportunity to get modern cars at what the dealers declare are rock-bottom price's and rid the roads of machines which should long ago have been traded in. Remember the sale ends Saturday night. Ten local dealers invite you again to look over their displays on the downtown streets. ·'-'· " : s What's What At a Glance By CHARLES P. STKWART Central Press Columnist. WASHINGTON, Mar. 10. -- The ongrossional flght nuainst the Rooso- clt plan of government reorynniza- on is assuming the proportions of 10 President's defeated Supreme ourt reorganization program. Governmental reorganization Ren- rally is recognized as lonfi overdue nd urcently needed--but not, the ending scheme's opponents any, the lind of reorganization urged by the dministrative supporters. These op- xjnents contend that a virtual execu- ivo dictatorship would bo created it ie White House hns its way; furthermore, that no economies are contem- ilatcd--only a promised (but not uaranteed) increase in efficiency. Indeed, Senator James F. Byrnes, who sponsors the proposition, admits hat no money will be saved, except s enhanced efficiency may be in- erprctcd as an economy. Opponents answer that despotisms always are represented as efficient, t least temporarily, but they object o a despotism. ITS POSSIBILITIES The thing Is not literally'a proposed despotism. The plan seeks to empower the President to rearrange, jumble up and rcnssort governmental commissions, boards, bureaus and odmlnls- rations, to switch divisions Jtom de- artment to department and maybe o create a new cabinet department t would give him considerable au- hority over their various cxpcndl- .ures. It would concentrate the CIvi 1 Service under a one-man rule, sub- cct to\ his dictation. It woulc emasculate the office of Comptroller cncral, which has had a deal to do :oward limiting executive spending It would create the offices of six 'assistant presidents"--who may be needed; that is not disputed. Anyway, it would greatly espand the presidential power. True, it would not entirely extinguish Congress' power. Congress fctill could reject thi President's decisions. However, i would have to do so by a majority vote. Then the President could veto -engross. Afterward Congress would nave toioverrldc the presidential vi-t by a two-thirds ballot. Certainly the odds would be in tin presidential lavor. THE OPPOSITION Naturally congressional Republican statesmanship revolts r.t the posil bllity of such a situation. From G. O. P. Leaders Charles L McNary and Bortrand H. Snell en down, respectively in the Semite am the House o£ Representatives, th Republicans unitedly are "antls." But the Democrats? They arc nearly If not quite a 'anti" as on the issue of Suprenv Court reorganization. Stray Thoughts By S. M. DcHUFF More and more each day it be comes apparent Pennsylvania i» toe big a toy lor New Deal political hid dies to play with. With the addition of another fine home now unde construction, West Cedar avenue wil just about be one of our very fines residential sections. If Rev. Charle E. Coughlln's New Deal fa«ta am figures are correct, our farmers evi dcntly have stopped foolin 1 wit! such trifles as oats, corn, wheat, cot ton, hogs, sheep, catOe and chickens A "For Rent" sign on, a nice South Arch street house is something of novelty these days. Pay no atten tlon to that rumor that Judge Maxe Is to be Marglotti's Philadelphi campaign manager. Just to show they hnd the same rights as WPA' and water companies, the gas peopl started dlgginc up Water street Mon day.. To "And Strangely Enough, Republican 1 : (I) Thanks for th compliment (2) of course I know Grandvicw avenue is a townshi proposition (3) what the devil docs tha "In Glory, Except" heading o your note mean? Surely a sma world, this, when one of thl column's items finds its way inlc official flies of two executive man slo'ns and the Washington office o Mr. Harry Hopkins, the New Deal spendthrift. After all, isn't a book review about as thrilling as someone telling about a movie they've seen and you haven't? The way those Russian big shots jump at the chonco to face a firing squad, you'd think Stalin would invent some other form of capital punishment. There are other household tasks I'd sooner perform than taking down and folding up a set of curtain stretchers. Looks at If TVA is all set to join other pinpricked Now Deal bubbles. Is it possible that back, somewhere, in King Tat'a time, there were coke ovens on what is now tho bouthwesl corner of Peach and Arch? All that prevents some women from making a jury box their permanent home is that court is. held only over so often. Let's go to press. STRENGTH FOR YOUR TASK By Earl L, Douglass, D, D, BARGAINING WITH GOD Tho Parable of the Vineyard (Matthew 20:1-16) is a very baffling and repellent story when read thoughtlessly or for the first time. A householder goes into the market enrly in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. He bargains with tl.em for a shilling a day. He goes out again at ni|ie o'clock, at twelve, at three,) and at five, and finding men idle, sends them into his vineyard with no definite understanding aa to the wage they will receive, save the assurance that he will do the right thing by them. When the time, comes to pay the workmen, each receives a shilling'; tho men who have worked one hour as well as those who have worked twelve. The parable is not intended to be a treatise on economies but a parable illustrating the nature o! tho Kingdom. It warns us not to bargain with God, but to trust in His goodness. If we bargain with Him, wo get what we bargain for and no more; if we trust Him, there will be no limit set upon His generous treatment of us, save what His love and wisdom dictate. The world says, Bargain and get all you can; but the good Word of the Kingdom is, Trust God and He will astound you with His generosity, All rlBhta reserved--Babson Newspaper Syndicate, In the News Erl«f Commont on Curr«nt EvenU Here and There. The Board of Education has ordered paid the bill of Dr. Alonzo F. Myers of New York University, who criticized it during the teachers' con- :crence here in January by referring :o a "major educational crime" it was committing in its plan to oust Superintendent B. B. Smith. Tho bill amount to 5185.75. Dr. Myers was said to be preparing to sue to collect. The members of the board who held up the bill would have been looked upon as better sports if they hod summoned their suavity to the surface and avoided tho necessity of their solicitor finding it necessary to repeatedly advise them that since they contracted to pay they might as well pay now and bo done with it. Just another evidence of how deep his verbal shafts sank the opposition group clipped away his title of doctor in tho resolution. A half hour was consumed in getting rid of the "momentous" question. In fairness to members William L. Zollars, Daniel Durio and James H. Strawn, may it be emphasized they had advised payment from the beginning. With tha Weihe group in power next winter it is probable the instructors will be muzzled. Sudden death ot Robert V. Rex, veteran Frick official, was a shock A superintendent for the coke company for 31 years, Mr. Rex was widely known in the industry. At the time of his death at Lamberton from a heart attack he was superintendent of the Lambert, Buffington and Footcdalc plants. Formerly he was connected with the Lciscnring and Juniata plants. Conncllsvil'c Lodge of Elks and the Masons ir Uniontown are mourning a faithful member. Boakc Carter's caustic comments on certain New Deal policies have caused the State Department to take offense to the extent that it is out to "get"' the columnist, according to a story printed at the Nations! Capita" and sent out over the United Press wires, to the effect that Cai.-ter, whto was born in Russia of British parents, hod gotten into the country on a Russian visa. To which C'arter responded: "Fine! They've been trying to get some newspaper or columnist to print that story for a long time." The writer contends he came in on a British passport in 1921 urn that he hasn't been in Hu'isla Fince ha was three years old. The State Department has not helped its cause apparently. Old Company D of the 110th Infantry--the World War unit--has lost another member by thei death of ·William Stillwngon at his home in West Fayette street. Ho suw plenty of service--in the Alsnc, Marne am Mcusc-Argonne sectors. A German missile struck him In the thigh while As Others Think STUDYING REPEATERS (Milwaukee Journal.) A special building at the Federal reformatory in Chillicothe, Ohio, is jeing fitted up as a laboratory for he study of "criminals who know jotter but still commit crimes." Psychiatric aid will bo offered in this ldinK to prisoners who realize there is something wrong with their jcrsonalities, something which drives ;hom to anti-social acts even though they know that their behavior is wrong and capture likely. It is hoped that exhaustive studies of, the individual men will lead to a fair proportion of cures and that "repeating" will thus be diminished. Whether or not a large number of actual cures are effected this experiment should be worth what it costs, for the studies made of individuals may well provide a mass of material useful in crime prevention work. We have relied too much on what we think would deter us from crime in seeking to deter others. The experiment at Chillicotho, if it does nothing else, will add to the available material pointing to the causes of crime, especially among those with better than average mental endowments. We are badly in need of Just that information. the regiment was battling the enemy in the Argonne Forest. Walter E Brown Post of the V. F. W. will sec he Is given full military honors. Former President Hoover visited for 40 minutes Tuesday with Kcrr Hitler at Berlin, but the conversation they carried on lasted but half that time because neither spoke the other's tonguo and as much timi was needed to work out the translations Then a story got out that Mr. Hoover denounced Fascism, to "the grca annoyance of Gorman officials the Hoover party." After Hitler had given a "fairly full outline of German social and economic problems," Mr Hoover was said to have rcplie that Americans "could and shoul attack their problems without sacrificing personal, intellectual and religious liberty." The Fatherland has sacrificed about all. Later at a dinner Mr. Hoover was toasted by Dr HJplmar Schacht, president of th Reichsbank, as a "protagonist of thi conscience of humantananism and international understanding." Death has invaded the city business circle, taking Ira V. Rush, who since 1023 had been a meat dealer in East Crawford avenue. He was stricken with a heart attack two weeks ago while t work and ling- ercd until Tuesday. Born in Lower Turkcyfoot township, Somerset county, on a Inrm, 68 years ago, Mr. Eush came to Connellsville In 1001 and had since been numbered among the community's substantial citizens.
