Outdoor Group Meets Roy Addison Helton, of the State Planning ' Board, who ad dressed members of the Outdoor Department of the Civic Club of Harnsburg late yesterday after noon, emphasized the importance of remedying the high rate of au tomobile fatalities. Many of the child deaths which occur each year could be avoided if some semblance of city plan ning had been used in selecting lo cations for schools and play grounds, the speaker declared. The high average of deaths in the twenty-five-year old group he laid to the fact that youthful drivers are tempted by the power of their cars, and that so far there has been little done to control the sell ing of intoxicating liquors to the drivers of automobiles. Helton also stressed the utili zation of public school facilities of the United States to carry on adult education work, and the pro tection of spots of scenic beauty along the highways. The speaker painted a picture of Pennsylvania roads of half a century ago when only a very i occasional pill advertisement on j the side of a barn marred the landscape as the traveler drove along with his horse and buggy. "Now many of our routes have been transferred into long lines of advertising where the motorist reads of the newest offerings in oills, facial creams and motor oils instead of watching the highways iand enioymg the beauties of na-jture," Mr. Helton said. "Such defacements have done great harm jnot only to the traveler but to the ! people of the community. Road-I houses, gas stations and other undesirable features of city life have nushed so far out into the county that the joys of escaping into the open has been denied the people in many sections. Since 1920, he said, strenuous efforts have bene made to regulate billboards. Several New England states have done something about it, but nothing happened in Penn sylvania until lately. Zoning regulations by local mu nicipalities and cooperation with advertisers were recommended by Helton as possible controls for bill boards. Mrs. Francis A. Pitkin, wife of the executive director of the State Planning Board, presented the sneaker to yesterday's audience, Mrs. Eugene M. Craighead, chairman, of the department, presided at the meeting, which was followed by a tea with Mrs. Pitkin and Mrs. Walter G. Scott pouring tea.

Italy s position in Ethiopia was believed here to be increas ingly dangerous and it was for that reason, it was understood, that the government was consid ering the evacuation plan. Under the plan, the Italian gov ernment would be given the chance to bring all women and children from Ethiopia and Somaliland to Italy through Djibouti, French So maliland, or some other port along the East African coast. It was believed . here that, the Vichy government would cooper ate in arranging the evacuation provided the Italian government agreed. ' This report lent eniphasis to in dications that British Empire forces, driving through Libya, were just getting started on a - cam paign intended to throw Italy out of Africa. British Empire forces have now reoccupied territory along the Su dan frontier which the Italians took when they entered the war. : They have started to evacuate the Buna Triangle in Kenya, into which they marched. Ethiopian tribesmen have forced them to evacuate Gubba. in Northwestern Ethiopia. There have been vague but per sistent reports of a big British drive against Italian East Africa and of the possibility of a real re volt by Ethiopian warriors. Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethi opia is; now at Khartoum in the Sudan organizing revolt.

THIRD fj 7 : .-5S?3 STREET NEWS, HARRISBURG, Sprague Offers Program for Tax From Page One materials and labor necessary for building the Nation's defense." In an interview, the 67-year-old Harvard business school professor and one time executive and financial assistant to the Secretary of the Treasury suggested these eco nomic measures to speed the de fense program: 1; Establishment of building quotas, limiting private construc tion to necessary work which would not couse competition with the Government or increase the price of materials needed by the Government. 2. Increased taxes on liquors, tobacco, amusements, clothes of the luxury kind, tea, coffee, soft drinks and gasoline. 3. Lower the income tax surtax, 4. A tax of perhaps 10 per cent. on all advertising over 510 or SZU Imposition of such a tax, he said, could easily increase the tax col lection by $100,000,000 annually. Doctor Sprague said an "un taxed" America was facing three basic problems.' ( .. Expanding defense programs, he said, mean increased employment, increased wages, rising material costs. - These rising costs mean that the Government - must pay higher prices for defense, mate rials, necessitating appropriations larger by billions than , the 517,- 485,528,049 which President Roosevelt requested. Ultimately he foresaw a sudden plunge from high to low prices for wage earners at the close of the defense programs ... if taxes are withheld now. . . : "It would be too late to tax when inflation threatened as it certainly will if taxation is with held." he said. .."We caught hopelessly in . a spiral in which no tax program could hope to succeed. "Is it fair to ask 1,000,000 young j i i men to serve uieir country as draftees while other young men, rejected for minor physical disabilities which do not keep them from civil employment, contribute neither time nor money to their Nation's defense?" Awarded First Prize in Mattress Sales Contest N. J. Gilbert, of the Capital Bed ding Company, Fourteenth and How ard streets, won first prize in a recent contest conducted on Perfect Slesper Mattress sales in the Eastern Region of the United States.
