euUMnnMtau., THURSDAY, JUNE 11, 1936 XHE DAILY TIMTS-TMBTTNI FAGS THE 3 PAYROLL FORMS WILL GO DIRECT TO EMPLOYERS For May Payrolls, If They Made Their Reports For Month Of April INDIANAPOLIS, Jane 11. Indiana employers who made contributions to the state unemployment compensation fund for the month of April will receive report forms lor Hay through the mail, and it will not be necessary to go to local license branches for forms, according to Clarence A. Jackson, director of Unemployment Compensation Division. Reports covering employment and payrolls for May of employers of eight or more persons are due by June 20. Forms bearing the employers' names and account numbers now are being mailed to approximately 5,000 employers who filed April reports accompanied by contributions at the rate of 1.2 per cent of wages paid during the month. Mr. Jackson pointed out that contributions for May are to be made only on wages actually payable In May. "For example," he explained, "if an employer's last May pay day Is Tuesday, May 26, these will be the last wages he will report for the month. He does not need to report wages due for work during the remainder of the month which were not payable until Tuesday, June 2, as these wages will be covered in the report for June, which is due by July 20," Approximately 242,000 employees are covered by unemployment insurance in the first 2,349 employers' reports tabulated for April, Mr. Jackson said. The average was slightly above 100 employees for each employer. Total payrolls listed on the same number of reports amounted to $24, 362,330.01, or approximately $100 for each employee. Contributions made by these employers to the unemployment compensation fund totalled $292,347.96. Benefit . payments for unemploy- , ,ment will be payable to eligible uri-employed persons after April 1, 1938. Scene at G. O.

FLUSHING BARS WOULD ' SAVE MANY Y0UN5 QUAIL Use of a flushing bar on mowing machines will save thousands of quail and other ground-nesting birds in Indiana this spring, Virgil M. Simmons, commissioner of the Department of Conservation, asserted today in an appeal to farmers and operators of mowing machines cut ting grass and weeds along the roads. Seeking to protect their nests, quail and other ground-nesting birds will stay on the eggs until the last possible minute before flying or being caught In the sickle. Even when the birds escape the nest is destroyed and the eggs left to spoil. A flushing bar a piece of burlap or other cloth which brushes the grass or hay ahead of the mowing blade will cause the birds to fly and give the operator on opportunity to lift the blade before the nest is harmed. Information on the making of flushing bars and their use can be obtained from the game wardens or by addressing , the Division of Fish and Game, Department of Conservation, State Library Building, Indianapolis.

Indiana General Service COMPANY' GSM? 200,000 BUSY MAKING CHEESE AT R0CQUEF0RT ROQUEFORT, France June 11. (U.R) More than 26,000,000 pounds of Roquefort cheese are manufactured annually In this picturesque French village, For more than 11 centuries this cheese has been manufactured on a commercial basis, but Roquefort cheese, itself, goes back even farther in history, as It is mentioned by Pliny the Elder, who wrote In the early de cades of the Christian era. More than 200,000 persons, working on 25,000 farms, are employed and earn their living directly from the cheese Industry. Milk is contributed by 700,000 sheep, tended by 10,000 shepherds. Some years ago. Roquefort cheese was patented and copyrighted so that the manufacture and sales of imitations in France is forbidden by law. Many imitations are sold outside of France, but real gourmets are convinced that the flavor of real Roquefort can be produced only In the caves for wh.ieh the village is famous. The architecture of the Roquefort caverns Is medieval. Curved rock ceilings are supported by large stone columns which form a succession of arches and pillars. Cool, damp air circulates continuously creating a unique atmosphere which cannot be duplicated elsewhere, and the original flavor of Roquefort cheese Is attribut ed to this. Thousands of loaves of cheese are arranged in piles of three in the caves, and as they undergo the curing process they require daily care so that the specific fermentation which gives Roquefort its flavor. can be developed to the right point SAFEGUARDING OF GRADE CROSSINGS Will Call For Expenditure Of Millions This Tear INDIANAPOLIS, June 11.
