POTTER United Press Staff Correspondent. HARRISBURG, Mar. 16.--Pennsylvania's 16,000-acre military reservation at nearby Indiantown Gap will be the 1838 summer encampment address of more than 28,000 persons, a record turnout to include National Guardsmen and Regulars from a dozen states. Adjutant General P. B. Kcrr revealed today. AH units of Pennsylvania's own 28th Division with the exception of the 21st Coast Artillery, anti-aircraft regiment, will undergo two weeks* training there between June 3 and August 14, according to the schedule just completed by the State mlitary affairs department head.

WPA OFFICIALS GIVEN WARNING ABOUT ELECTION Spcclnl to Tile Courier. HARRISBURG, Mar. 16.--Officials of the Works Progress Administration in Pennsylvania were warned by their chief against "coercion or other political practices" in the piimary campaign as the fight for control of the Democratic organization broadened into the Stale House. WPA Administrator J. BanUs Hudson sent this :etter to administrative and supervisory employes: "In view of the coming primary campaign, I wish to make it plain to all administrative and supervisory employes of the works ptQgnim that any attempts at coercion and olhcr political practices will not be tolerated. Immediate dismissal shall be the penalty for violation of, these instructions." RECORD SPENDING EXPECTED TO MARK STATE'S ELECTION HARRISBURG, Mar. 16.--Pcnn- bylv.mia's political parties arc headed for a spending spree that may eclipse the historical election in 1926 when $3,000,000 was tossed into the voting districts nnd the laic William S. Vare was refused a seat in the U. S. Senate. While the expenditures 14 years ago were prcdominalely Republican, 1938 undoubtedly will be a record c.xpcn:,c year for Democratic office seekers. Both major paitics are confronted with tough primary fights for Statewide ofllces, the cost of which, it is conservatively estimated, will be more than $1,000,000. At least twice that much will be thrown into the campaign for the November election when party meets party. The Democratic primary, with three strong gubernatorial candidates --Charles Alvin Jones, Thomas Kennedy and Chfrlcs J. Margiotti--will be an expensive affair. The Comimttee for Industrial Organization, headed by John L. Lewis, will have the largest campaign fund to draw from in the effort to nominate Lieutenant Governor Kennedy. Lewis recently ordered a $2 assessment on each of the 500,000 United Mine Workers, backbone of the CIO. With that million-dollar fund, it is estimated. Lewis willingly "will toss at least $300,000 into the Kennedy campaign. Attorney General Margiotti, running independently, probably will spend $100,000 and the Democratic State Committee will need at least $300,000 in supporting Jones, whose running mate is Governor George H. Earlo for U. S. senator. Since Earle probably will have little, if any, opposition for the Democratic nomination, the bulk of the money will be needed in the gubernatorial fight. S,mce U, S. Senator Joseph P. Guffey will support Kennedy and Earle, Federal patronage assessments and contributions will add to the CIO campaign fund. The Democratic State Committee will draw on State patronage and voluntary contributions for the Joncs-Earle ticket. Former Governor Gifford Pi'nchot and Superior Court Judge Arthur James are the major contenders for the Republican gubernatorial desig- nation. Pinchot, it is understood, is prepared to spend $200,000, if necessary, to win his third Republican nomination. Backers of Judge James will need a similar amount There has been no agreement to date between Republican factions on the party's candidates for U. S. senator and at least three strong candidates already arc in the field. They arc State Senator G. Mason Owlett, Republican National committceman; Judge Cyrus Palmer of Schuylkill county, and U. S. Senator James J. Davis, who will seek renominntion. Probably $100,000 will be spent in the senatorial campaign, unless there is a unanimous agreement on one candidate. In addition to the four State-wide offlces, the State's 34 congressmen, half the State senators, or 25, and the full membership of the State House of. Representatives, 208, are being elected this year. State political organizations will not take active part, financial or otherwise, in the primary fights, but in November will toss money into the local districts for their nominees. Likewise, the' Republican and Democratic national committees, probably will send money into Pennsylvania for the November election since the outcome in the gubernatorial and senatorial fights probably will have an important bearing on the presidential election in 1940.
