Tuesdav. Tulv 25. 1939 THE HAMMOND TIMES Page Five SEVEN FACTORS BOOST RELIEF COSTS IN AREA For Situation; Advances Plan to Out Burden Why is the cost of relief so high? That is the question which has been uppermost in the minds of Lake county citizens since the grand jury started its deliberations on relief costs several weeks ago. Although there has been a big slash--$614,651--in costs for the first six months of this year, officials say expenditures still are too high, according to B'rank Hoess, president of the Lake County council, when pressed for an investigation. Digest Analyzes Causes The Indiana Civic TJigest, an organ printed in South Bend, which has a slogan of "Efficient Government, Economical in Operation with Equitable Payment of Taxes by AH Citizens," today advanced seven major reasons for high relief costs. The organ sets forth that public relief costs about as much in one large Indiana county as all other functions of local government combined. "It has been noticeable that substantial improvement in business in recent months has not helped this situation a great deal," the Digest states. "A search for th« causes of this very serious problem reveals the following seven major reasons: "(1) Migration of relief clients to urban communities in search of jobs or more favorable relief standaids. The trustee in one large urban Indiana township has stated publicly that 52 per cent of his relief clients have moved in since the depressios started. The 3-year lesidence requirement, passed by the last legislature, will help reduce migration from other states but will not stop migration within the state Borrow to Finance Relief "(2) Unemployment compensation. Today when a manufacturing concern places a man on the pay roll it assumes the responsibility for helping to care for that man when he is laid off. No concern will hire anyone unless it absolutely has to and will step up hours rather than spread the work In most cases factories do this with the cooperation of their shop unions, the members of which are tired of working very short hours For this reason w h e n one prominent Indiana firm enjoyed a large increase in business recently it increased hours from 24 to 44 per week, but put on very few new employes, although it had laid many off during the recession. These latter remain on relief. "(3) Sugar coating the tax bill. Much of the cost of relief is being financed off the cuff by township, county and federal borrowing. Many people believe that some magic formula will be found to eliminate this debt painlessly. Even those who know better do not worry about it so much as if they had to plank down the money at the present time. "(4) Lost personal reserves. Many people who financed their own unemployment in the early days of the depression no longer are able to do so Relief Become? Respectable "(5) Catering to reliefers by politicians. The number, of people publicly assisted has become large enough and strongly enough organized to be a definite political factor catered to by those who seek political office "(6) ProtecUon of jobs by social \vorkers. Social woik has become a profession and the importance of that profession depends upon the seriousness of the problem There it. an incentive for social workers to solicit clients and increase the dependency of those they are caring for in order to preserve their jobs and expand their influence. "(7) Relief has become respectable. Many people who \*ould have felt disgraced to be on relief ten years ago are concealing their assets or spending their earnings as fast as they get them and depending upon the trustee to care for them the next day after they are laid off or whenevei they suf- BRICK BRADFORD-And the Metal Monster KOPAK'THE SHERIFF JUST SAVE ME | -- CftMF aid MFUIC. / · I THE MEN IN BLUE'S GANG WE CAPTURED ARE WANTED AS FOREIGN SPIES' WHAT 'THEN AW BLUE MUST BE WORKING IN TNt tNTEREST OF SOME FOREI6N.

The event will be devoid of any long speeches, and there will be plenty of refreshments, games and entertainment, Wleklinski, said. Bob Simpson Is Now Coaching for Hungary COLUMBIA, Mo.--(U.P ) -- Bob Simpson, once holder of 11 world records in the hurdles and described as "the greatest track athlete in the history of the University of Missouri," has begun work as national director of athletics for Hungary under a four-year contract In a letter received by Chester A. Brewer, piofessor of physical education, Simpson said his duties are to tram and coach Hungarian athletes. Simpson hurdled to fame for Missouri in '35, '16, and '17. From 1920 to 1926 he coached the M. U. track squad and from here he went to Ames, la, where he served as track coach from 1927 until 1935. He is the youngest brother of Chauncey G. Simpson, present track coach of the Missouri Tigers. No Grazing in Parks DENVER. -- (INS) -- There's a law m Denver which prohibits free grazing and wandering in municipal parks by cows. The law was dug out of the archives recently by Assistant City Attorney E. L. Fundmgsland after mountain park police seized eight cows belonging to Andrew 13, Anderson, a Bear Creek rancher. Police said the cows were "running wild." SHANGHAI, July 25.--(UP.)-Extension of the Japanese blockade campaign to Shameen, the rich foreign area of Canton, was feared today as Japanese authorites an nounced that the Pear Iriver would be closed to navigation effective at once. The Japanese order, issued at Hong Kong this morning, gave notice that the river would be closed "for approximately two weeks, due to military operations." To Search All Persons It was reported at Hong Kong that the Japanese intended to search all persons who left or entered the Shameen area, as they have done at the blockaded British concession at Tientsin. American and British sources at Hong Kong interpreted the order as presaging a blockade of the Shameen district, Hong Kong dispatches said. Shameen is built on a sand pit, separated from Canton proper by a narrow channel and joined to it by bridges. It has been the toreign area of Canton, China's commercial capital of the south, for nearly 80 years. If they blockade it, the Japanese would be making a further move to close in on Hong Kong, Great Britain's naval base for the Far East, which lies 60 miles from Canton at the mouth of the Pearl river. Fuither, foreigners have long anticipated an eventual Japanese drive to take control of the International settlement of Shanghai, greatest city of China and one of the world's great ports. Japs Dispute Among Themselves The foreign settlement was involved today in what appeared to be a dispute between the Japanese navy and the Japanese army. By orders of the Chinese mayor of the Japanese-sponsored municipal regime in Shanghai proper, bodyguards yesterday seized 28 trucks of the International settlement administration, and arrested a Briton, a German, a Russian and 125 Chinese with them, for dumping garbage in the Japanese-occupied Cha- pei area. Later it was learned that the mayor was acting under Japanese army orders but the that the Japanese navy had officially asked settlement authorities to dump their garbage on the low-lying Chapei areas The British consulate general made vigorous representations to the Japanese today, seeking release of the Briton, Harry Rose. The Chinese mayor countered with a demand for ?31,000 for a garbage dumping concession. Blockade to Continue At Tientsin, a Japanese arm} spoesman announced that the blockade of the British concession there would continue, despite negotiations at Tokio, until British authorities gave "concrete intention to carry out fully the agreement Electric Fans SOLD AND REPAIRED PARTS FOR ALL MAKES OF FANS Hammond Electric Go.

Yarnell, retiring American fleet commander in the Far East, against the beating by Japanese of R. A. Baker, Anderson, Ind, acting pay clerk of the United States gunboat Guam, and the concern expressed by Secretary of State Cordell Hull over anti-American incidents in general. There was "nothing unusual" about such incidents ( the beating of Baker, the slapping of an American woman and a 13-year-old American boy and the destruction of an American flag) in view of the number of Americans jn China, a Japanese navy spokesman said. He added that incidents were investigated fully and that a "logical and satisfactoiy" settlement was always intended, including disciplinary action if it was "appropriate." NATION TO MARK AERIAL STRIDES WASHINGTON. --(U.P.)- The progress of American aviation will be observed during a two week national celebration, Sept. 11 to 24, Charles F. Horner, president of the National Aeronautic association, has announced. Federal agencies interested in aviation and the industry itself will aid local programs m at least 1,000 communities. Authorization for federal participation is contained in a resolution offered by Sen. Pat McCarran, democrat of Nevada, author of the Civil Aeronautics Act. The federal agencies which have shown their willingness to aid the observance are the Civil Aeronautics Authority, the Army Air Corps, the Bureau of Naval Aeronautics, Weather Bureau, Office of Education and the Bureau of Air Mail of the Post Office department. "The continued growth of aviation in the fields of air transport, private flying, and national defense is one of the mjst important factors now acting toward business recovery," Horner said. "New federal programs, such as the training of 15,000 pilots by the 'Civil Aeronautics Authority, are bringing aviation much closer to the rank and file of the people than heretofore. "Applications for p i l o t and mechanic training, exceeding the capacity of the programs many- fold, are evidence that great numbers of America's young people look to aviation as an industry in which they can make their careers with confidence of opportunities for advancement." Horner said that committees organized throughout the country to stimulate local programs are receiving the active co-operation of governors, mayors and civic organizations.
