First Payments Go to School Groups for Paper Salvage 3 Weeks Bring Nearly $600 to Organizations Fir.'t payments to parent-teacher and home and .school associations were on their way today in The Evening Star-P.-T. A. Salvage lor Victory program. Nearly $600 will be disbursed for the collections made during the first three weens of the campaign in December. Two checks have been mad* out for the Washington schools, m e to the District of Columbia Congress of Parents and Teachers and the other to the Federation of Parents and Teachers Associations. Fiom the offices of these two groups the chrcks will go out to flip individual schools. The Home and School asso ciation checks will be handled by the District of Columbia Congress of Parents and Teachers at the re quest of the director of the cam paign. Payment is made in this: manner because the task of handling so many checks as are represented in payments to the individual schools is more than the dealer can under take. Statement Accompanies Check. Earh school will receive a state ment of the amount of paper and magazines delivered, with the amount due for each, and the state ment will be accompanied by a check from which has bpcn deducted 5 cents, the regular bank cnsrge for checks plus 3 or 4 cents more to cover the cost of mailing. This work is being handled by the central offices as a senicee to the individual schools. The central offices, of course, receive no part of the returns from the sales. Lacking funds to assume the cost of mailing out the checks, the central offices are required to deduct the few cents necessary to defray thp expense. The four Maryland schools which collected paper during pecpmber are receiving their checks directly from the Penn Paper & Stock Co. in Philadelphia. 8 School* Being Dropped. Eight schools which on Monday failed to make the minimum re quirement of 200 pounds are being dropped from the program. Three others which fell below the mini mum. but have a record of good : collections in previous weeks, will be carried for another week to give them an opportunity to demon strate their desire to continue. Generally, most of the schools being visited this week have shown substantial increases over previous collections This was especially true of Jefferson Junior High School, which jumped from 581 to 1.692; Buchanan, which went from 266 to 981: Payne, from 77 to 357: Bryan, from 35 to 254: Randle Highlands, from 26 to 223: Randall Junior High School, from 92 to 222. and Green leaf. from 95 to 204. The Giddings school, collected for the first time, turned in 459 pounds. Returns from Tuesday's collec tion have not been completely re corded as yet. Land Law Evasion Laid To Japanese inll.S.
