Montgomery Bucks and Philadelphia and that the rest of the State be similarly divided. The Philadelphia Senator is of the opinion that with larger arras of government the cost would be greatly reduced with the smaller official personnel,
“It shall be the duty of the commission to study and investigate the cost of local government,’’ the resolution provides, “and ways and means of lessening the burdens on the tax-, payer by reducing the same to study the advisability and feasibility of increasing the areas of local Governments and of establishing larger units for school administration and of abolishing certain forms of local government; to study overlapping functions of local government and ascertain how the same may be eliminated, and lo frame such legislation and constitutional amendments as may be deemed necessary to carry into effect the recommendations of the commission.”
The preamble to the resolution declares that “local government drooped in its present complex form with Small areas largely for the lack of adequate means of transportation and the development and simplification of local government has not kept step with the development of transportation
“Th£ support of local government." th© preamble continues, “lias become a problem and ways and means should be devised to lessen the existing and evrr-tnrreasing burden of local government on the taxpayer.”
The commission is to consist of three members of the Senate appointed by the president pro tempore and three members of the House named by tile Speaker and three citizen' to be selected by the governor.

Liberals dearly in Majority and Give Measure Fast Ride
HARRISBURG. Pa . Feb. 7 (UP>.
Legalization of Sunday afternoon sports in Pennsylvania, which have been banned by “Blue Laws'’ for 139 years, was approved by the Stale House of Representatives today.
The measure to amend the 1794 Sunday Laws so as to permit outdoor spoils between the hours of two and si p. rn. on the Sabbath was sent immediately to the Senate for action.
The vote on passage was 126 to 77
Liberals were clearly in control of .the situation. But 105 votes were needed to pass the measure, a majority of the 208 in the House. The measure was given a fast ride through the assembly, having been read and passed three tunes after it was reported favorably by the law’ and order commitee less than one week ago.
On the stroke of noon the House took up as a .special order of business die Schwartz bill.
Rep. William McElwee Jr.. Lawrence, immediately took the floor in defense of the existing blue laws and hotly opposed passage of the modifier
McElwee declared that adoption of the amending bill was in effect “an attempt to repeal one of the Ten Commandments.” The Lawrence member discussed various provisions of the measure and complained that it gives township supervisors the right to pass ordinances regarding Sunday sports when they were elected to supervise roads. He pointed out that the bill gives thp supervisors the right. to meet at any time, even on a Saturday night, pass an ordinance to prohibit sports of any kind and make all persons so engaged liable to fines on Sunday.
Senator Edward B. Bennett, Indiana. introduced the first ma tor administration bill last night. It provides that the state take over the remaining 53,000 miles of roads in second class townships Two companion measures would Hermit the tsate to assume the road debt of certain municipal subdivisions and would provide for the election of one supervisor instead of three in second class townships.

J Bolton Weeks, president of the Keystone Automobile Club, delivered an attack last night on the proposed plan to scrap the highway program and divert (he state motor fund to unemployment relief.
' Diversion of the motor fund,” he said. “genially Nill enlarge the circle of human misery by throwing thousands of persons out of work and making them dependent on charity. It is not good sense to create more unemployment in order to relieve exist mg unemployment.”
The state motor vehicle lees and gasoline taxes are “trust funds." Weeks said, which are paid by the motorists of the state with the pledge they will be used for highway work.
Ninety per cent, of every dollar used in construction and maintenance of highways and bridges is used for labor,” Weeks continued. "To divert any substantial portion would mean that thousands of workmen would be thrown out of employment.
“Funds for any general purpose, such as unemployment relief, should be either the result of a general levy against all classes, or by the taxation of luxuries.”

With settlement of the British war debts to (he United States by a lump sum being discussed. it was reliably stated in diplomatic circles today that Prime Minister MacDonald has received a personal invitation from President-elect Roosevelt to go to the United States for a war debt conference This invitation, it was said, was conveyed to MacDonald by Sir Ronald Lindsay British ambassador to lite United States, who returned yesterday to give cabinet members firsthand reports on the Washington angle of the debt impasse

HARRISBURG. Feb. 7 «INS) An
annual savins of $2,500,000 to .school districts having a population of jo,-000 or less is the estimated amount of the economies which would result to local taxpayers if the new school rode is adopted, the departments of justice and public instruction said today.
'file revised code was introduced in the Legislature last night.
A reduction in tin' number of school districts from 2,587 to 500 is tile principal economy feature of the bill.
Under thp new method the Slate subsidies would be distributed under a formula which give funds to each district rn direct proportion to its needs, each district of the first-el,ass would be guaranteed at least $250 for each teaching and supervisory unit, and each second, third, and fourth class district at least $300 for each unit.
Other provisions of the new rode are. School districts under the jurisdiction of county .superintendents not compelled to conduct teachers’ institutes; reduction in the number of teachers’ colleges from 14 to IO; permit school boards to accept collateral security from its officers or depositories in lieu of surety bonds
The principal economy feature, however, is th© elimination of some 2000 school districts, which would make a corresponding reduction in the number of paid collectors, auditors and solicitors and "a more economical large quantity purchasing of school supplies and equipment.”
Enlarging the districts, the summary pointed out, would permit pupils to be assigned to more convenient schools, “thus reducing tile present cost of transportation.”
The plan does not provide for the erection of any new buildings.
Except In the case of boroughs situated in more than one county, school districts would lie wholly within one county.
If the levy of a six-mill tax on the true property value of a district does not provide SHOO j>er the State would make cnee.
