Bills covering the program were Introduced in the House last night, shortly after the Chief Executive had outlined his plan before the joint Senate-House session. Estimated to yield $80,650,000 in one year, they represent the starting point from which the Governor asked the legislators to build the final program.

He was the selection of the House Democratic caucus in the afternoon and fore the House are: COMPLETE GLASSES recovery level attained by the industries included in the survey may not extend through the other four-fifths of the county employment picture agriculture, wholesale and retail trade, etc. "We know that there are more unemployed today than there were five years ago," he said. "I know personally that there are mote here in Steelton. And, at the relief headquarters, we know what con ditions are because we check every case carefully when it comes on the relief rolls and we check it again when it goes off." The second factor suggested by Mr. Robbins is the present "higher standard of relief." "There's r.o question but that the standard of relief today is higher than it was five years ago," he explained. "If we had had the present standard five years ago, I haven't any doubt that there would have been more persons on relief." Dauphin Well in Front In the me'anwhile, however, there are increasing indications that industry and the whole field of private employment in Harrisburg and Dauphin County are gradually contributing toward a reduction in the county's relief population. In this respect, SERB reports reve.-il that Dauphin County is well in the front of tho State-wide movement. For the State as a whole, the Representative Samuel A. Wpi'ss. had the undivided support of the Allegheny, abating taxes for 1935 Democratic majority for election psychiatrists of the East, today. and prior years when current taxes are paid on time and arrangements on the floor. , Representative Eugene A.

Clark's court troubles arose from his offering the Earle Administration support for its bills if he got State insurance in return. It has long been contended that the chairman of the committee was the only and final pudge on all measures reaching his committee. "I have for nine sessions objected to the Appropriations Committee reporting out bills on the recommendation of the chairman only, said Harris during a debate in which the resolution was opposed by Senator Buckman, Grundy Republican, who was once chairman of the committee himself. Senator Shapiro, Philadelphia Republican, who became the Democratic candidate in his district for re-election, offered the only bill on general legislation at the opening Senate session. It would set up an unemployment insurance system conforming to provisions of the Federal Social Security Act. Senator Woodward, Philadelphia, offered half a dozen resolutions paving the way, if adopted by two sessions, for a vote on proposed constitutional amendments permitting a graduated income tax, submission of amendments oftener than once in five years, restoring the tax qualification for voters and making changes of interest to Philadelphia.

VAIU the Rev. Frank w. Kuth, Herns, who resigned from the House to take a seat in the Senate. A chairman of the important Ways and Means Committee, held jointly last session by Ruth and Furman, has steady increase in the number of direct relief cases being closed because of regular employment or increased earnings in private employment. Through January and February, the number of casas closed for these reasons varied from 2088 to 2901 a week. During March the range was between 2543 and 3288. Last month the number increased steadily from 3412, during the first week, to 4332 during the week ending April 25. During the latter week, private employment in Pennsylvania removed from the SERB rolls as many cases as it put back and, in addition, enabled 1652 persons to leave WPA work for steady jobs. The net result has been that, during the last few weeks, increased private employment has been reducing the combined SERA-WPA relief rolls al the rate of from 500 to, 1000 cases a week. An Impressive Record In view of this State-wide trend, Dauphin County's record is particularly impressive. The record is furnished by the SERB figures which, it is important to remember, do not include those cases taken from WPA rolls by private employment and, in turn, opening WPA vacancies to be filled' from the SERB rolls. These figures show that, during the last five weeks, private employment was taking from the SERB rolls in Dauphin County 94 per cent, of the number of cases accepted by the SERB because of loss of private employment During the same period, the State-wide average was 81 per cent.
