In creased wages for the 3,500,000 persons on work relief under the 1937 program, for which President Koosevelt has asked an additional $1,500,000,000 appropriation, was predicted today by "labor" con gressmen. Representative William P. Con- nery, uemocrat, Massacnusetts, chairman of the House Labor Com mittee, said he had received assurance from Works Progress Administrator Harry Hopkins that prevailing wage rates would be paid over a broader range than at present. "The $50 security wage is out," Connery said. Connery's prediction was disputed by Chairman James P. Buchanan, of the House Appropriations Committee, considering the added relief appropriation to supplement funds now on hand after July 1. Present security wage levels, "with some exceptions," will continue under the new program, he said. 170 Sign Petition Organized labor has fought for prevailing wages to persons on work relief and obtained them for some localities. Much of the House support for earmarking $700,000,- 000 of the relief fund for non- Federal public works projects un der the PWA is due to the fact pra vailing wages are paid under the Public Works Administration. The bloc favoring-the earmark ing has obtained more than 170 signatures of House members to a petition to be presented to the President, asking his support, Rep resentative Alfred F. Beiter, Democrat, New York, bloc leader, said. WP4 "security wages" at present range from a minimum of $19 for unskilled southern labor to $95 for skilled and professional workers in large cities. State administrators, however, have a i right to increase the wages by 10 per cent, and reduce hours by 10 per cent. The average wage for the 3,500,000 work-reliefers was reported slightly under $50 a month. Short-week Bills While the prevailing wage fight continued, sponsors of short workweek legislation were driving for congressional action. The Ellen-bogen bill for a "little NRA" for the textile industry was before the House Labor Committee. It pro vides for a thirty-five-hour week and a $15 minimum wage. Connery sought Administration backing for his short work-week bill for all industry selling or buy ing in interstate commerce. The measure, redrafted after collapse of the NRA, has been pigeonholed by the leadership since last August, White House approval would per mit its immediate consideration in the House. Buchanan and other members of the Appropriations Committee who have conferred with Hopkins said he had not indicated to them any plans for revising present security wage levels.

LOCK HAVEN Funeral arrangements were being completed for Charles J. Hager, 76, a former member of the board of education. . Truck Seized, Driven Into Delaware River By Vnited treat PHILADELPHIA, April 16. Police today sought three men, believed to be striking union truck drivers, who seized a two and a half ton truck and drove it into the Delaware River in a new outbreak of violence in the three weeks old drivers strike. Raymond Snitzel, driver of the truck, was forced from his cab by three men in a green sedan, who drove his truck off a pier into eighteen feet of water. Snitzel described the men as union drivers. Later, a group of men in a green sedan shattered windows in the automobile of Michael A. Slefandiwicz, president of a grocery company, and stoned a taproom into which Slefandiwicz had fled. The Brotherhood of Transportation Workers called out wholesale grocery workers and helpers three weeks ago. Past Day April 23 CONCORD, N.

That's why you bought the car you did. Now see for yourself how you can further reduce the operating cost of your automobile andat the same time increase its efficiency! All it takes is simple arithmetic to show that Ford, Plymouth and Chevrolet owners can save at least $24.48 on gasoline alone per year! Now that kind of money is worth saving. It will pay for two new tires. It will buy five pairs of shoes, a vacuum cleaner, or a radio. Or you can put away the savings every time you tank up with RICHFIELD HI-OCTANE! 4. vvVvi vv-V.1.'.'. 4 HERE'S HOW YOU DO IT: You drive the average Ford, Ply. mouth or Chevrolet a total of 8,500 miles during the year. f You pay just as much for other gasoline as you do for the New 1936 Richfield Hi-Octane, developed for modern motors. Take 18c a gallon (including Tax) as the average price for gasoline during the past six mo'nths. Urges Reforestation Of Submarginal Land Approximately 3,065,000 acres of abandoned and submarginal land in Pennsylvania should be reforested, Secretary of Forests and Watprs James F. Bogardus said today. vvun me recent disastrous Hoods again emphasizing the need of j reforestation program as a nrotee tion against floods, it is my opinion that the State and other nsenrips should begin at once to acquire those lands that are lying in waste in Pennsylvania, he explained. This land. Boeardus Dointed out consists of abandoned farmland and submarginal tracts that have been unprofitable for agriculture for years. He said these tracts ought to be acquired either as additional State forest areas, or in some similar manner, and reforested immediately. He estimated there were about 1,-300,000 acres of abandoned farmland and 1.765.000 acres of sub- marginal land in the State. Bigger Cars Bigger Savings! If you drive a big car, the above figures only begin to indicate what you can save with Richfield! The very fart that you use more gas means that you can save more money. That's why fire departments, taxi-cab and trucking companies use Richfield Hi-Octane. It's the thrifty fuel that puts actual mileage on your speedometer and cash savings in your pocket!
