PINCHOT LIKELY TO SIGN SONDAY SPORTS MEASURE
Indications Seen That Governor Favors Bill; Must ^ Bass Senate
House Committee Has Plan Permitting Motion Pictures on Sundays
HARRISBURG, Pa.. Fob. 9 (UP)
Governor Gifford Pinehot will sign ^r Schwarz bill permitting Sunday sports, if it hurdles the Senate, it was learned from an authors ive source close to the executive today.
While the bill has yet to pass tho Senate before being placed on the Governor's desk for signature, leaders j of the liberal bloc in the Upper House i are confident they can force final approval of the measure.
The bill swept through the House by a vote of 127 to 75 and is now in the hands of the Senate law and order committee for consideration.
Immediately after the bill was sent to the Senate and referred to committee, arangements were made for a public hearing next Tuesday. Senatorial leaders favoring the measure indicate they can pass it finally by a majority of two votes. Opponents claim it will be defeated by five vote;.
The United Press has been reliably informed that the Governor favors outdoor recreation and believes that each community should have the light to “home rule" on the question. On that basis, he is expected to sign the measure if it passes the Senate.
Under terms of the bill, introduced by Louis Schwarz, Philadelphia, j municipalities would have the right j to decide whether they wished to permit outdoor .sports on Sunday aft- ( ernoon between the hours of two and six p. rn.
Five per cert of the qualified voters cf a community can demand a referendum on the subject, under terms of the measure, and if a majority express a desire to change the blue laws of 139 years ago. each political sub-division will have the right to pass necessary legislation to put into effect the will of the majority.
The Rev. Dr. William Forney, of Philadelphia, head of the Lord’s Day Alliance, expressed the belief the bill I would be killed in the Senate.

The members of the Chester Teachers’ Association met 'Tuesday afternoon, after school hours, in th" auditorium of the Larkin school, Broad and Crosby streets, which has be: n the scene of several meetings within recent weeks, concerning the matter of a further cut, in addition to the ten per cent, contribution granted by the teachers last year, At all meetings the teachers have evidenced a reluctance to hurry to a decision and have held out for more time to await the outcome of possible legislation and to consider the matter of

Survey of County Offices Completed by Special (’omm it tee
A sum of approximately $300,000 can be saved by the county this year, if recommendations made bv a committee of the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce are followed, the County Commissioners were told yesterday afternoon.
The commissioners were given a 37-page summary of the report by J. H Ward Hinkson, chairman of the committee, whose research men have recently made a study of county offices, including inspection of records and have held conferences with officials and employes.
A hope of reduced county taxes for this year was held nut in the statement by County Commissioner C. Edwin Hunter, when he said to Mr. Hulk.son “We are both in accord for a reduction of the tax rate, and we hope that both county and poor tax rates for 1933 will be lowered '' Tile* commissioners told the committee Tat they had been going over th" proposed 1933 budget for more than two months and were nearly ready to deride upon it.
When Hie committee referred to cuts in salaries of county employes,
1 Mr Hunter reminded them that there had bern a IO per cent, cut last year. "This year the commissioners have taken the lead of elected officers, whose salaries are set by law, and we will take a IO per cent. cut. Thro*** other department heads have agreed to go along and we are waiting for the decision of the others,”
Charles II Drewes. president of (he Board of Commissioners, thanked the committee for its report, adding, "Y'ou gentlemen must remember that everything that is done herr is tied up with some kind of law, directing how* it must be done.”
Referring to the recommendation that wider use of prisoners be made in county work, Mr. Hunter, who is also a member of the Prison Board. said: "Our experience here was very unsuccessful, because when county men are working about the courthouse, it is very easy for their friends to approach them. We had several experiences with men smuggling forbidden things, received from outside friends, before we abandoned the practice”
