CONANT ASKS AID
for poor rooms
Says More Talented Should
Have Chance for Higher
Education.
By the Associated Press.
ATLANTIC CITY. N. J„ March 2.—
At leas* 25 per cent—and maybe 50
per cent—of the students doing ad
vanced work in American universities
should be supplanted by more talented
youths who can’t afford to go to col
lege. President James Bryant Conant
of Harvard University said today.
He told the American Association of
School Administrators that less than
6 per cent of American families have
Incomes of $5,000 a year or more, and
consequently universities are bidding
against each other for their children,
while brighter youngsters of poorer
families miss opportunities that might
better be theirs.
Dr. Conant, said there was only one
way to provide university education
for the promising youths "now de
barred by economic and geographic
factors" and that is by "generous sub
sidy—lar jthnlarships or opportuni
ties for sprung sizable amounts of
monp
.^served that 63 per cent of the
youngsters between 14 and 17 attend
high school, but only 11 per cent of
those between 18 and 21 attend col
leges or universities.
Homer P. Rainey of Washington, D.
C., director of the American Youth
Commission of the American Council
of Education, urged teachers to be
alert in teaching children to appreciate
democracy.
’Since democracy is so much on
trial today." he said, "our citizenship
training needs to find a way to pre
serve democracy.’’

Are Union Men

Strike Right Question
for Law Officers
Is Raised.
By the Associated Press.
SACRAMENTO, Calif.. March 2 —
Reports that two-thirds of Sheriff Don
Cox's deputies had joined an A. F, of
L. union prompted an investigation
today by Sacramento County officials,
who sought to learn if the officers
could strike.
County Executive Charles W. Deter
ding said he would confer with the
sheriff on reports that 20 of the 30
regular deputies had Joiped the Ameri
can Federation of State, County and
Municipal Employes.
What effect unionization would have
on policing labor disputes was among
questions quickly raised. The deputies
declined to say how many had joined
the union or whether the organization
permitted strike action.
Sheriff Cox said, “Of course peace
officers can’t srtike. They can't strike
and still be deputies in this county.
I don't know, but I understand there
is a provision in the union charter
against their striking."
Robert M. Wilcox, business agent
for the union, declared the local in
Sacramento, California's capital city,
has "between 350 and 400” city and
county employes as members.

HEALTH PERMIT OFFICE
MOVE IS SUGGESTED

First Floor of Old Police Court
Building May Be New
Headquarters.
Housing of the permit office of the
District Health Department in the
first floor of the old Police Court
building when it is vacated by the
courts has been suggested by Health
Officer George C. Ruhland.
The permit office now is in a pri
vately owned building at Eighth and
I streets N.W.. where it formerly was
given quarters free under a co-op
erative arrangement with the central
admitting bureau for hospitals, but
six months ago a demand was made
for rent. The office of the controller
general has ruled there is no author
ity to spend Health Department ap
propriations for rent for such a pur
pose.
It has been planned tentatively by the
Commissioners to move the Hou.-e of
I Detentiorf to the Police Court Build
! ing, using the upper floors, and
! whether this building also will be the
| home of the permit office will depend
i upon the results of studies of space
J conditions, it was indicated by Com
missioner Melvin C. Hazen.

OYSTER’S TAX TRIAL
BEGUN BEFORE JURY
Local Man Charged With Five
Violations of Business
Privilege Levy.
The trial of Fairfax Oyster, local
business man. who is charged with
five violations of the Business Privilege
Tax Act, was started today before a
jury and Judge Edward M. Curran
at Police Court.
Mr. Oyster is charged with failing
to make a return on his business for
1936. He has a business privilege li
cense, and it is his contention that he
filed a return in order to get his license
and the return was lost or misplaced
at the District Building.
The law provides a maximum pen
alty of $1,000 per day for each day
during which a return has not been
filed. While it would have been pos
sible to charge Mr. Oyster with cases
totaling approximately $70,000 in
maximum fines, it was decided to select
five different days at random over
the entire period.
