Pa., Fob. 28 -(UP) — The Turner plan, a program of state economies, was ready for submission to a busy state legislature today. The savings schedule evolved by a group of legislators rested in the pocket of Rep. Ellwood J. Turner. Delaware county, who was prepared to introduce it almost immediately. No intimations of what it would propose were forthcoming as leaders of the House and the Senate gave it their final study before bringing it into public view. The economies, however, were expected to include recommendations for elimination of many state commissions and bureaus, for reductions of departmental salaries, and for consolidations of much governmental business. The State Government Committer of the House, in which the plan was developed, was among the many committees scheduled for meetings as the legislature began the second day of its ninth week. Another committee called into session was the Special House Committee named to draft a liquor control plan to replace the State Enforcement Aet The bill repealing that aet was among the “liberal" measures which the Senate Law and Order Committee expected to consider in its meeting during the dnv Other bills before this group were the Schwartz '-‘undav Sports bill and the McClure Constitutional Convention Plan.

The state’s highest officials gave that promise today after enacting a measure which provides the banks with foundations upon which to real' a new financial structure and solidify the old. Beginning today, every Pennsylvania bank may set up a plan whereby all future deposits shall be kept one hundred per cent, liquid. In banks adopting the plan, incoming funds will ba segregated from previously existing accounts and will be available to depositors immediately upon demand. Adoption of the plan is optional with the individual bank. Th" effect is to allow limited withdrawals on old accounts and unlimited withdrawals on new accounts. Moving swiftly and dramatically, the legislature in a night session consumed barely an hour in formally effecting strategic measures designed to ease the train on the financial houses of the state. The emergency banking plan is similar in principle to that adopted recently by New Jersey. A state assembly ordinarily torn bv factional politics approved thr resolution establishing the plan with a unanimity unprecedented in Pennsylvania in recent years. Affixing his fignaturr one minute after midnight today, Gov. Gifford Pinchot declared that the resolution "makes it unnecessary to declare n moratorium for Pennsylvania banks. There will b" no such moratorium." Under the terms of the joint resolution. the st a i e secretary of banking “is authorized and directed not to take possession of any bank because of its decision not to meet in full" its liabilities for prior deposits, provided the bank is able to continue (’ontinned on rage Twelve SAY “SPHAR" OWN HHS ACCEPTIII) CHARITY Two alleged speakea v proprietors, who waxed fat by charging adm.-sion to “parties" and then sold iffier liquor and wine to the patrons," accepted gratis flour from the American Red Cross in this city, it was revealed by police today.

Captain Feeney used a sponge to mop up some of the liquid and County Chemist Knox found ii to contain a large percentage of alcohol. Several gallon, of supposed wine were also confiscated during the raid.
