WASHINGTON, March 21—(UP) —Highlights of President Roosevelt’s unemployment relief message to Congress:
It is essential to our recovery program that measures immediately be enacted aimed at unemployment relief.
I propose to create a civilian conservation corps to be used in simple work, not interfering with normal employment, and confining itself to forestry, the prevention of soil erosion, flood control and similar projects.
T estimate that 250.000 men can be given temporary employment by early summer if you give me authority to proceed within the next two weeks.

Complete Text of the F. D. R. Relief Message
WASHINGTON, March 21 — (UP' — President Roosevelt today transmitted to Congress the following message on unemployment relief;
"To the Congress: i "It is essential to our recovery program that measures immediately be enacted aimed at unemployment relief. A direct attack in this problem suggests three types of legislation,
"The first is the enrollment of workers now by the federal govern-i ment for such public employment as j can be quickly started and will not I interfere with the demand for or the proper standard of normal employment.
"The second is, grants to states for relief work.
"The third extends to a broad public work labor creating program,
"With reference to the latter. I am now studying the many projects suggested and the financial questions involved. I shall make recommendations, to the Congress presently.
"In regard to grants to States for relief work, I advise you that the remainder of the appropriation of last year will last until May, Therefore,
. and because a continuance of Fed-! eral aid is still a definite necessity for many States, a further appropriation must be made before the end of this special session.
"I find a clear need for some simple Federal machinery to coordinate and check these grants of aid. I am, therefore, asking that you establish the office of Federal relief administrator, whose duty it will be to scan requests for grants and to check the efficiency and wisdom of their use.
"The first of these measures which I have enumerated, however, can

HARRISBURG, Pa., March 21— (UP' - Sunday sports legislation was finally enacted today by the Pennsylvania legislature to eft ret the first major change in the state's blue law's of 1794,
The state Senate approved the Schwartz House bill permitting baseball and football on Sunday afternoon ii state-wide and municipal referenda approve granting licenses for the sport. The vote was 26 to 23.
The bill faced two more steps before it became law. First, House concurrence in Senate amendments was necessary. This was considered certain Then Governor Pinchot must sign the measure.
Provided the Schwartz proposal survived both steps, the baseball and _ 1 foot ball licenses it would legalize could j not be effective until 1934 because of the referenda to be held in the 1933 _ ! election.
Senator John J. McClure, of Delaware county, led the moves by which the Senate reconsidered its previous defeat of the measure as the General Assembly began the twelfth week of its session.

ALLEGED BANK ROBBER ON TRIAL
Young Woman Positively Identifies Prisoner as One of Four Bandits
Charged with being one of four bandits who held up the cashier and bookkeeper of the Prospect Park State Bank, Prospect Park, on February 13, last, Victor Bartclll, 28, of South Philadelphia, went on trial before Judge John M. Broomall at Media, this morning,
The prisoner was positively Identified by Miss De Im a Rolph, bank bookkeeper, as one of the men who had staged the robbery. In all probability the case will go to the jury this afternoon.
On the date In question, four men entered the bank, and displaying revolvers, cowed Miss Rolph and Herbert S. White, the cashier. The bandits made their getaway with $2395.
On February 15, Miss Rolph was taken to police headquarters In Philadelphia and there, in the rogues’ gallery, picked out a photograph of Bartelli as that of one of the robbers. Nine days later, Bnrtelli, who had been arrested for "sticking up" a numbers game writer In Pottstown, was confronted In the Jail at. Norristown by Corporal Bloom, of the State police, and Miss Itolph, the latter Identifying Bartelli,
The defendant offered a denial to the charges and to Miss Rolph’s Identification. He said he was Identified with the numbers game, but in no way connected with any hold-ups or bank stick-ups.

WASHINGTON, March ‘JI—(INS)—-Congress today dramatically voted an end to thirteen years of bone-dryness when the House approved a conference report on the 3.2 per cent, beer bill.
The measure now goes to President Roosevelt, whose signature is assured.

TALBOT RELIEF RILL SENT BACK TO COMMITTEE
$22,000,000 Measure to Be “Studied”; Was Up for Second Heading
as to Means of Raising Amount
HARRISBURG, Pa.. March 21 (UP) The Talbot $22,000,000 unemployment relief appropriation went back to committee today "for further study” when the House of the General Assembly took up the bill on second reading.
The action was approved without protest despite Governor Gifford Pin-chot’s urging the legislature to act immediately and in the face of a reconstruction Finance Corporation telegram advising that no further Federal funds would be available until the state provided Its own relief fund.
Tile telegram from the Federal agency notified Governor Pinchot that Pennsylvania must do more than it has been doing in raring for the 2,-000,000 needy persons in the state. State relief funds expire March 31 and Federal funds will provide only $2,000,000 for April, according to Pinchot.
Today’s move, In sending the appropriation back to committee, showed legislative leaders still uncertain on
the amount to be which
Since tho Senate had approved the sconfercnce report yesterday by a 43 to 36 vote, yielding to the House on all important matters of dispute. House approval today was a formality.
