the House law and order committee voted over whelmingly to report the Schwartz blue law revision measure Amendments made to the introduced by Representa tive Schwartz Philadelphia before it came out of committee The Schwartz plan advocated by Connie Mack of the Philadelphia Athletics W W Roper former Princeton coach and other speakers at the hearings which preceded the favorable report would permit mu nicipalities to determine individually whether they shall have Sunday afternoon sports and limits those sports to outdoor activities The Rev William B Forney most persistent advocate of

commissaries offer the only method by which relief can be given the 2000000 needy Pennsyl vaninns with the funds available Governor Gifford Pinchot declared today II those who object to the plan would inspect the commissaries estab lished in York and Eric he said I Km sure they would have a different view of the situation Under the plan it is not only pos sible to feed the unemployed for less money but to give them a scientific ally balanced ration Pinchot said in a letter to Judge Ralph H Smith Pittsburgh who wrote the executive on the commissary plan An official of the State Emergency Relief Board said that a child could be feel for 53 years on what it would cost to care for him in a state hos pital as the result of malnutrition he continued and on the basis of ne present food orders such a con lit ion is bound to increase The Governor in discussing objec tions of various retail and wholesale grocers to the plan said it was im possible to subsidize every grocer in the state because of the depression it is well to observe that only a comparatively small part of the food orders go to thc neighborhood trade Officials of the relief board ex plained today that a great majority of the food orders issued by county committees were used at chain stores We are spending millions for food clothing and heat and thc numbers of memploycd are increasing daily one official said At the present rate of increase it ill cost thc State a year o feed cloth shelter and warm those n need within another year Obvi ously we have no way of securing a sum and the only alternative is to makes what we

were not receiving charity but their due from their citizensbe cause they were without work through no fault of their own As to thc claim thafc food orders provide a healthful diet the gover nor said that is simply ridiculous We find that in actual practice under food orders thc nourishment per day sometimes falls as low as 500 calories while 2500 is a reasonable amount and the community markets supply up to 2800 No one who is at ail familiar with the situation can defend for a minute the statement that hap hazard buying under food orders is as good as a balanced ration The relief board has three sets of diets one for adults another for children from eight to 16 and a third for those from two to eight Orders on the commissary would be drawn for the various ages and would thus give each member of the participating family a balanced scientific diet MAY SETTLE STRIKE CLARKSBURG W Va Feb was to be resorted to here today in an effort to settle the strike which yesterday closed the plant
