(INS)—Motors, oils and rails set the pace in a strong and m(xierately active market today in which a number of highs for 1935-36 were established.  A feature of the trading was the turnover of large sized blocks of stock, including 10.900 Remington Rand, 10,000 Socony-Vacuum and 10,000 Wilson Sc Co.  With the dollar turning steady, the mild amount of European selling of American Securities noted last week apparently has dried up and instead some new foreign buying is developing, particularly m the rails.  The excellent earnings statement of Wilson & Co., released yesterday, continued to give the packing issues a buoyant tone with both Armour and Wilson entering new high ground.  The spread of crude oil price boosts to the East stimulated new activity in the oil shares, with Consolidated, Texas Corp.. Standard of California and Pure Oil making new highs.  Southern Pacific and Union Pacific set new highs in the rails. Chrysler, which has been quescent for some days, returned to activity in the motor list with a rise of a point and a half.  I. T. Si T., one of yesterday’s most active stocks, extended its advance into new high ground today. New highs also were made by JJggt-:t <5;: Myers and South Porto Rico Sugar.  Five Arcadians Initiated Into VFW Post Here Last Night  Five Arcadians last night were initiated Into the Arcadia Post, Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, at a meeting held at the Three Deuces Cafe on Huniington drive.  A. E. (Earl) Morris, commander of the Jocal post, was in charge of the short-form initiation ceremonies.  The following were added to the roll: Cyril Kloety, Charles Stewart, William DeBeers, W. M. Patterson and Steve Pelligrino.  Rules Pension Bill As Adopted By State Legislature As Inadequate  Herbert C. Legg, chairman of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, in a formal statement Issued late yesterday, endorsed the Townsend Plan.  The supervisor's full statement follows:  “In reporting to the people of Los Angeles County as to the major problems confronting us during 1936, I feel it Is necessary first to mention the one major problem. It is the rapidly increasing demand upon the taxpayers for social service functions.  “Undoubtedly the social service departments of our county government have been called upon to administer relief in an amount totally beyond the ability of our taxpayers to carry Indefinitely. With this load Increasing in spite of a definite revival of private industry, it is necessary for the taxpayers to recognize this unusual problem as a national one and not as one for the local taxpayers to carry. Unquestionably, the adoption by Congress of a Federal Old Age Pension Bill along the lines of the Townsend Old Age Pension Plan will alleviate this unbearable relief situation, not only in Los Angeles County but in the entire United States.  It would not only take from the relief rolls those who would directly benefit by the monthly payments but indirectly it would practically eliminate in its entirety the load which is now being carried by the common property owners supporting the social service departments of our county. These activities constitute approximately sixty per cent of Los Angeles County government costs at the present time.  “The old age pension bill adopted by the State Legislature in its last session is totally inadequate to nelp out in this alarming situation. It not only does not provide a competence for those who qualify within its narrow limits but its cost is thrown against the common property owners who already are carrymg a load beyond their ability to pay. It is most .certainly beyond the amount which public officials should call upon the property owners to assume. If Congress will recognize its nis-ponsibility in this matter and will set into motion the Townsend Old  Nationat Pie Baiting Contest Announced  Some ArcftdJa housewife next month nuty gmin national fame as a baker of cherry pies, according to an announcement coming from the New York committee in charge of National Cherry Week which opens on February 15th.  One of the principal features of the week, according to annout»ced plans, will be a nation-wide pie-baking contest.  New York, Michigan, and other ^ sections of the country noted for their cherry orchards have already started to make extensive preparations for the event. In Southern California, the Beaumont Cherry Festival is an event of national interest during this week.  (Continued on Page 4)  SHERtFF RECEIVES P:STOL TROPHY  NEW YORK, Jan. 14.

New Bill Would Allow Congressmen To Transfer Hearing To Local Courts  A new blM, Intioduced by Representative Moritz (Democrat) of Pennsylvania, was presented last week which would permit members of the Senate or House to have transferred to their own districts, cases In which they are Involved whenever they 4)elieve^ « District judge or Jury is biased, according to clippings from the Washington Post and Daily News sent to Arcadia by Congressman John H. Hoeppel,  If any of the members involved in a criminal or civil action, the clipping revealed, in any district court, the Moritz bill would allow filing of a motion which would halt the trial at that point. If the legislator felt that the “Judges or Juries are biased or prejudiced either against him or In favor of any opposite party.*'  The case then, the Washington News disclosed, would be automatically moved to the United States District Court in his congressional district and any local Judge falling to certify immediately such a case to the “home town*’ court would be liable to a forfeiture of $5,000 to the lawmaker involved.  In explaining his bill, the Pennsylvanian said:  “I don't mean to apply this privilege to trivial cases. Perhaps the line should*be drawn between misdemeanors and felonies.”  “But it is true,** he concluded, “that the resentment people here have for a congressman makes it diiflcult for one to get a fair trial. Besides, the expense of bringing character witnesses here is a factor. Even if they are summoned, they are strangers to district Jurors, who therefore cannot evaluate properly such evidence.*'  Louise Vinsonhaler Is Arrested For Violation Of Ordinance Number 214 Here  WILL QUIZ~COlJl^CILMEN  Dog-Breeder Has Been Warned To Vacate Kennels By City Council In August  Claiming that she will carry the fight into court if necessary.

Sofes Tax Repeal Would Hurt State, Citamber informed  LOS ANGELES, Jan. 14.—Repeal of the sales tax and income tax laws would deprive California of approximately $120,000,000 of revenue, and would create a probable state deficit of $200,000.000, declared Preston Hotchkiss, Regional Director of the Cahfornia State Chamber of Commerce at the Southern Council meeting held here last Thursday “There are between $45,000,000 and $50.000,000 in state warrants now outstanding,** Hotchkiss pointed out, “and it is quite possible that within sixty days the banks will refuse to accept any more of these warrants. A special session of the Legislature in an attempt to solve this problem seems to be inevitable.”  Matters pertaining to Southern California industry, agriculture, highway development and conservation were discussed at the committee meetings which preceded the council luncheon. Well Informed agricultural leaders, in the session of the agricultural committee, expressed the opinion that the recent Supreme Court decision regarding the AAA will not injure the various marketing agreements now in effect, particularly those dealing with citrus h'uitJS ijind walnjats.
