May Day Patriotically Celebrated At D o n o r a, Monessen, Uniontown. Several Monongahela valley communities joined other western Pennsylvania districts today in celebrating May Day in varied fashions. Communities in Washington, Westmoreland, Allegheny and Fayette counties observed the day workmen the world over have set i aside for the furtherance of tne labor movement with rousing demonstrations, but called it Americanism Day. The Monongahela Euglo and Drum Corps will be in the line of march in a parade at Monessen in which fully l,r00 persons representing civic, social and fraternal organizations will take part tonight.

More than 3,ono tiersons participated. District At- torney Warren S. Burchinal was the principal speaker. An estimated 15,000 persons converged on Uniontown, seat of Fayette county, scenes of many labor disturbances in the past, to march in a gigantic parade with distinguished Army men and others prominent in the affairs of the slate and nation. The Uniontown celebration will end tonight with a general convocation in the high school with numerous patriotic addresses. In Pittsburgh so-called radical groups held two separate meetings : under sanction of the police de- partment who issued permits to ; hold celebrations in public parks, i a parade preceded one of the i gatherings and was announced as ' a. "united front demonstration" in j which the Communist Party coop- crated. ; A second meeting was sponsored I by the "Labor Day Conference of Allegheny county," and was addressed by a representative of the Socialist Party. Police generally held were ready for outbreaks, but expected none n nd took no extra precautions. Meanwhile, American Legion posts in a number of communities sponsored "Americanism Day" such as the one in Uniontown. Americanism Day was observed in McKccsport last night with some 2,000 Legionnaires, school school children and members of military, civic and fraternal organizations parading. The "United Front" group will stage its demonstration in that city Saturday. Police already have issued a permit for the meeting. Americanism Day occurs on a day that is sometimes called May Day and also identified in recent years as Child Health Day. It is also entitled to another and highly patriotic identification -Dewey Day. May 1 is the anniversary of the battle of Manila Bay and Admiral Dewey's great victory there in 18H8, and the day is authorized by 'u ltcl of Congres to be known as Dewey jjay. This patriotic signifi- ranee might well be remembered in connection with today's celebra- tion.

Death Defeats Efforts To Save Abandoned Baby Uniontown, Pa., May l-(UP) Physicians' efforts to keep alive a dav-old, seven pound baby boy abandoned on a rugged mountuin slope near Fairchance were defeated today. The foundling died in UnionU hospital from pneumonia and internal injuries ufter futile, all-uight ministrations. Shortly ufter the infant's death, District Attorney Wade K. Newell announced the arrests of three Fairchance young people in con Tugwell Chief of Rural Rehabilitation Phase of Work Drive. Washington, May 1 (UP) President Roosevelt today started brain truster Rexford Guy Tugwell on his phase of the gigantic work-relief program by signing three executive orders that set up the re-settlement administration. Washington. May l-(UP) Rexford Guy Tugwell, armed with $1,-000,000,000, today attacked the problem of resettling 19,000,000 persons stranded on poor farm land or in dead industrial areas. Success of the $4,000,000,000 work-relief drive rested in part on whether he can dent the problem of providing almost one-seventh the country's population with permanent means of earning a living. Tugwell will be the chief of rural rehabilitation, the head of a new government agency to be known as the "Division of Rural Resettlement." Public Works Administrator Harold L. Ickes and Relief Administrator Harry K Hopkins also planned government-financed pro jects to aid Tugwell in his work, the first of its kind ever attempted on a nation-wide scale. The National Besourees Board estimated that 19,000,000 persons lived on unproductive farms or in industrial areas where there was insufficient manufacturing to support them. For poor families, the government plans to: 1. Retire submarginal land from commercial agriculture, paying $5 or $6 for the acreage and converting it into parks, forests and preserves. 2. Reclaim land by irrigation, drainage and soil erosion control, with a $500,000,000 appropriation. 3. Relocate stranded families on the poor land by a rural rehabilitation program. For Poor City families, the government plans to: 1. Build subsistence homesteads near industrial centers, providing each group with a garden plot, inexpensive home and new environment. 2. Decentralize industry from metropolitan areas to give subsis-I tence homesteaders part-time employment to augment their farm earnings, and to aid in rehabilitat ing country people. 3. Finance a $450,000,000 low-cost Housing program to eradicate slum conditions in major cities. A total of $350,000,000 will be spent for erosion control, forest-ation, reforestation and flood controlall intended to better economic conditions of the farm population. The Civilian Conservation Corps will cooperate with its $600,-000,000 program. Tugwell also will direct subsistence homestead financing, picking up a program already launched by the Public Works administration. Six of the conur.nnities are in process of construction with letting of contracts scheduled soon for four more.

CALIFORNIA GIRL REPORTED MISSING Police have been asked to search for a 14-year-old California girl who is missing from her home along with a large amount of money belonging to her parents. The missing girl is Josephine Panepinto, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dominic Panepinto. When lust seen she is said to have boarded a train with a colored girl named Jones.

J., May 1 (UP) Philip Martin, 40, a watchman in a Paterson silk mill, was arrested today, charged with having sent a letter .to Col. Charles A. Lindbergh, threatening to kill him. Martin, a Cerman alien, was described as "suffering from brainstorms", and was believed to be irresponsible. His arrest, according to police, solves the mystery of two such letters received by Lindbergh since March 19. Martin was struck over the head several years ago with a blackjack while he was fighting off burglars in the mill at which he was a caretaker. His wife informed police that he had been brooding over the Lindbergh case, and that since the con- victim of Bruno Richard Haupt-mann, discussing of it had become almost a mania. The letters, according to police, were largely incoherent, and in NO FROST REPORTED IN RIVER DISTRICT Although the mercury dropped to around 34 degrees in some hill sections of this vicinity last night or early this morning, no frost was reported and consequently there was little or no damage to crops, according to a report from one of the nearby farms. Low temperature was reached in Monongahela proper this morning at 5 a. m. when the mercury stood at 40 degrees, according to an official reading at the Bellewood-Monongahela Gas Company. At 1 p. m. it was 16 degrees warmer. CASH REGISTERS OUT, STATE STORES USE MONEY DRAWERS Old-fashioned monev drawers to- day replaced expensive casJi regis ters in State Liquor Stores on an order issued by the State Liquor Control Board today. In place of the $1,000 triplicate receipt cash register, clerks now use a wooden cash drawer, with old fashioned bell attached, and write liquor receipts on grocery pads. It is believed the Control Board withdrew the expensive registers and substituted the money drawers because of the great expense involved in the leasing of the cash registers. The money drawers were installed yesterday on orders of the Board inspector and were ordered placed in use today. RIVER TONNAGE FOR APRIL FALLS BELOW MARCH MARK Tonnage nlong the Monongahela river for the month of April was C17.233 tons lower than that for March, according to Anderson Caseber, lock master at Lock No. 4 in Rostraver. During March. 1.C2M48 tons of material was hnu'ed up and down the river while last month the total was 1,012,715 tons, In March 1,613,775 tons went down stream as compared to 1.000,090 for this month while the figures for up stream in Manh and April, respectively, were 16,273 and 12,625 tons. Lock ma iter Caseber said the river has been below normal in depth for the past few months. Demonstrations Mark May Day Over World By United Press May day was celebrated around the world today with extensive labor and communist demonstrations. Minor outbreaks with casualties occurred in Paris and Vienna but disturbances up to mid-afternoon in Europe were at a minimum. The most Impressive demonstration was in Moscow, where there was a greut military display, including 660 airplanes, COO tanks and heavy artillery some phrases unprintable. But each of them contained the following passage: "This is from John. This is not a ransom note. This is a killing note. I am going to take the law into my own hands. I'll kill Lindy and kill myself." One of the letters, for some inexplicable reason, was sent to the warden of Sing Sing prison. Detective Newman Stone, of the Paterson police, and Detective Sergeant E. A. Hausslin of the State police, were assigned to the cae. Although it was certain the letters came from a mentally deranged person, the police feared the writer might actually make an attack. The police found that in each instance a return address had been carefully removed from the envelopes. Under ultra violet rays, the imprint of the address had been communicated to the back of the envelopes, and it bore the name of the silk mill where Martin worked. PAPER OVER GRATE IGNITES; LOSS $50 Sparks from the kitchen stove, ascending the chimney, 'ignited paper covering the grate opening in an upstairs room and caused fire entailing $."0 damage at the home of William Parfitt, in Gallatin, about 3:23 p. m. yesterday. Water, chemical and fire damage resulted to bed clothing, carpet and mantle in the room. Members of the family fought the blaze and kept it in check until the arrival of the Gallatin-Sunnyside fire truck with eight firemen who extinguished the flames. STATE SERUM CASES INDICTMENTS QUASHED Harrisburg. Pa.. May 1-(UP The Dauphin County Court today quashed the indictment against Dr. E. K. Tingley, head of the Gilliland I laboratories, Marietta, Pa., and ! Roy G. Miller, former State Health Department employe, in which they were charged with conspiracy to defraud the state in the handling of diphtheria anti-toxin. To Succeed Moffett?

Tax Conference Closed To Newspapermen; Senate )mpromise Harrisburg, Pa.. May 1 (UP) Members of the Senate Republican majority, who are at odds with Gov. George H. Earlc on new revenue proposals "put their feet under the table" with the chief executive again today. The conference was called for 11 a. m. Announcement of the second tax conference with the Governor was made by Senator John G. Homsher, Lancaster, Republican and president pro lem of the upper body of the General Assembly. Homsher declined to say what, if any, new compromise offers would be made by his G. O. P. colleagues. The Senate met at 11 a. m. and then recessed Immediately to release Republican leaders for the parley. The Republican Senators attending the conference were: Homsher, Clarence .1. Buckman. Bucks; George W. Woodward. '. ". , "',,' Somerset, ana u. .mason uwieu, Tioga. Owlett is chairman of the sub committee of the senate committee on finances. Secretary of the commonwealth David L. Lawrence and Attorney General Charles J. Margiotti, also were sitting in on the meeting. The session was closed to newspapermen. Governor Earle in serving notice that the press would be excluded at this conference ex- . p;ajn.(i that it was "their confer- ence. rreviou.siy ne nau saia mai any negotiations with the Senate majority would be open to newspapermen. Harrisburg, Pa., May 1 (UP) Pennsylvania's tax-deadlocked legist iture reconvened today with Senate Republicans confronted by ! io: George 11. Earle's ultimatum ! that he will never yield on four j phases of their $111,500,000 new I revenue layout offered as a substi-! tute for his own $203,000,000 pro gram. The notice, served last night in the Governor's second address of the month over a statewide radio hookup, covered these uncompro-misable features: 1. Senate majority members must accept a tax program providing $60,000,000 for relief during the next fiscal year, discarding their allowance of $57,000,000 for the coming biennium. 2. They must abandon their plan to" levy a sales tax. I 3. They must tax manufacture ! in., pnrnnrut iin fin a itapitt, with other corporations. 4. They must approve levies making public utilities pay their fair share of the state's tax burden. The Senate, against whose Republican majority the Chief Executive's verbal attack was directed, had on its first reading calendar today the administrations' constitutional revision bill which Earle told his radio audience was "mutilated beyond recognition" after being pickled in committee three months. Senator G. Mason Owlett, Tioga, chairman of the Constitutional Changes committee, reported the Ruth Revision bill to the Senate floor Monday night, drastically .amended. Action has been defer red because of the lack of printed copies of the amended bill. Another Democratic administration bill, a measure to liberalize , the Workmen's Compensation laws, I was to be called up for final action I in the House, after which it is doomed for Senate mutilation, j It is one of the few items in the Governor's "humanitarian, labor (and social reform" program which ! has not passed the House. The blocking of that program in the Senate inspired several paragraphs of the Governor's radio address. He accused the Senate Republic- Jan majority of violating the party i platform pledging it to give labor j the right of collective bargaining: I to outlaw sweatshops, to end ex- ploitation of women and children I in industry, to enact a proper mini- mum wage law for women and children, to enact a child labor law and to eliminate industrial police ind company paid deputy sheriffs. "Our bill to insure the right of eeliective bargaining", the Governor reminded, "was passed by the House on March 10, and has been blocked in the Senate since that time. 'Vmilar fates have been met by the bill regulating the hours of women in industry, passed by the House on February W, the Child Labor Bill, passed by the House (Continued on Page .(U.
