PAGE TEN. THE DAILY COUIUEft, CONNELLSV1LLE. PA. FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 193S. County Legislative Districts Unchanged For May 17 Balloting Selection of Fayetto counly's four ncmbers of the House of Reprcsent- itivcs in the Slate Legislature will sot be changed at this year's election s a result of the decision of the Dauphin county court which declared ihe reapportlonment legislation, en- »ctcd in 1937, as invalid because the ict disfranchised voters and violated sthcr provisions of the Stati: Constitution. When the county cloctoiate goes to the polls, it will name thiee mcm- ·oers of the House from th: Second Tayctte District and one :!rom the First District. It had been suggested under the measure, held illegal, that !hc population be apportioned so that each district would name two rcpre- icntatives. Because of the court decision, Un- lontown and South Union township .vill remain in the Second Fayettc District instead of being In the First District. There is a likelihood that the apportionment bill will be presented with the required compliance with '.he State Constitution and embracing those districts that had been overlooked when the Legislature meets next January. In such an event, Ihe Second Dis- trict'would be comprised cf the'city of Conncllsville, borough of Belle Vcrnon, Brownsville, Dawion, Dunbar, Everson; Faycttu City, Vandcr. bilt Ohiopylc'and South Connellsvillc and the townships of Brownsville, Dunbar, Franklin, Jefferson, Lower V"--one, Perry, Upper Tyrcne, Wasli- -. '.glon, North Union, Bullikin, Con- nellsvillc, Saltlick, Sprinijdcld and Stewart. All of the remaining districts would then'bo included in the First District. Pennsylvania's firs.t legislative reapportionment act since 1920 was declared, invalid by Judge V. C. Sheeley of Adams county, presiding over the · case as n visiting jurist, who ruled the bill completely unconstitutional and could :not b» validated in part. Reports had gained wide circulation that Brownsville was omitted from the bill as enacted but it developed a misunderstanding had arisen because · South Brownsville was not recorded. This was clearcc as South Brownsville had been merged two years ago with Brownsville proper. Copies of the book containing the laws enacted by the State Legislature in.1937 arrived here over the week-end and.the situation was clarified. Residents of Brownsville had been informed that thcii subdivision was left out and they complained to -legislators who were astonished at the reports that were straightened up with receipt ot flit book of legislation.
