T&E ALTOONA MIRROR—THURSDAY,- NOVEMBER ;, 1.929 SOVIETS HOLDING CELEBRATION E LYONS, Staff Correspondent. MOSCOW, Nov. 7.—Millions of Russians, Ukrainians, Georgians and other citizens of the vast soviet union are taking part today in fervent celebrations of the twelfth anniversary of the olshevlk revolution. This is the first of a two-day holiday signalizing tho seizure of power by the Soviets, under Communist leadership, on Nov. 7, 1917. Monster parades, meetings, sport festivals and other expressions of mass sentiment are scheduled In every city, town and village of the union. In the capital here, at least a million men, women and children are expected to join in the most impressive parade of the year, pouring from all sections of the spread-out city into its red heart, Red square, to be reviewed by .leaders of the government and the ruling Communist party. The civilian parade will, as usual, be preceded by a great military show, with armed Young Communists and Pioneers (equivalent to the Boy and Girl Scouts in other countries) ir! the line-up. Perhaps the most striking aspect of the celebration is the participation of millions of boys and girls, either born since the-revolution, or too young in 1917 to remember anything about life before the great change. To them the past of tsarism, landlords and millionaires is something as far and unreal as the discovery of America. They are completely attached to the new .system, regardless of what some of their elders may think. In this lies a great .deal of, the ,strength of the revolutionary regime, and every passing yciar Jolaces new emphasis upon this sup' port. Moscow has looked forward for months to this occasion for the un- veijlng of the new mausoleum on Red square holding the embalmed body of Lenin. Eor the. flrst five years after his death, Lenin's body rested in a. simple wooden structure. This has now been replaced by a more elaborate stone mausoleum. The twelfth anniversary takes place In a period Of great economic strain. On Oct. 1 the Soviet Union began the second year of its astonishing five-year plan of industrialization. The* flrst year had proved, so far as essentials are concerned, successful. There is every reason to believe that the second, too, will measure up to the plans. These successes, however, involve a prodigious national' effort and enormous sacrifices by the population. To carry out its plans for turning • Russia into a self-sustaining Industrial nation, the soviet regime is obliged to reinvest .every ruble it makes. It must deny to its ; people everything that smacks of luxury, and much that belongs in; the category of necessities. Comfort;now is, being, deliberately sacrificed for the sake of the industrial future. . While there are many who grumble against ^he^e enforced sacrifices, especially i In the agricultural .regions, even the grumblers join in the celebration 'today. The dissatisfaction is directed • against some. of the government policies, but not'against the gpy- ern'ment ", itself. It 'Is. the failure to make th'fs important" distinction which ha's given courage to so many false prophets of .the overthrow of the soviet system.- :*• v -'.> ( XAKGEST CULM BANK GOES.

PITTSBURGH, Ndv. 7.—The varied problems that face, the printing Industry will be 'discussed and remedial measures will be suggested at a conference for technical men in printing to open under the auspices of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers today at the Carnegie Institute of Technology, Pittsburgh. The conference will be of international scope with prominent men in printing production in several foreign countries Invited to attend. Delegates from England, Germany, Russia and Japan have accepted invitations to speak at the conference. Recognized leaders In the printing trades in America will take part In the meeting, while the production managers of several of the larger newspapers have consented to speak. Twenty- two national and international organizations connected with all branches of the graphic arts have advised that they will cooperate by. sending dele gates to the meeting. The two-day conference is being,organized by the printing industries division of the A. S.'M. B., of which Edward P. Hulse .is. chairman. The recommendation for the conference was made by A. C. Jewett, chairman of the committee on "survey and research. Mr. Jewett is director of tha College of Industries, Carnegie Institute of Technology. Wide Interest has been shown recently in the problems that,have hindered the printing industry, and the conference is being organized with the Idea of planning definite research steps that may make possible a •scientific, study of the ancient trade that has rpado so few changes since the days of Gutenberg. HE WANTS JOB OF MAYOR, BUT DOESN'T ASK TITLE SOUTH • HAVEKf, Mich.,. Nov. 7.- T} be a mayor in deed but not in name Is the wish of Captain E. O. Holmes, veteran alderman, picked by the city council here to succeed the late Mayor Charles Funk. Captain Holmes has been mayor pro tern since 1926, and most ot the time acted as mayor during the illness of Mayor Funk. When the council insisted upon giving him the title he protested. "I am willing to go ahead with the work," he said, "but I refuse to have any title thrust upon mfe." CONDITIONS GOOD THROUGHOUT STATE HARRISBURG, Nov. 7.—General employment throughout the state is good, but certain factors will cause particular communities to suffer from unemployment during tho winter, un- ess measures are taken to increase public works in those sections, accord- ng to the October report of Walter J. Lloyd, director of the bureau of employment In the Pennsylvania department of labor and industry.' Employment in many skilled lines, specially in the steel mills and fiJfe- tories, has been good. Textiles arid conl have been advancing. Local conditions of unemployment aro due to a number of causes, including seasonal changes, unskilled labor, nnrt the difficulty of placing men over 45 years old. Hardships, already brought to these communities, will be increased as winter approaches. Expansion of business in Harrlsburg has increased the demand for help. A 815,000,000 total of construction work now under way in the capital ia improving conditions. In Johnstown, conditions in many industries were poor, but vast numbers of workmen were employed In highway construction which was going forward rapidly in the district. Work which will be started on the new power dam at Safe Harbor, and which will cost $30,000,000, Is perhaps the outstanding factor in employment conditions in this section. The project will extend over three years, and will employ hundreds of men. A let-up was noticed in automobile production but several other industries had some demand for' workers. At Oil City a let-up has been observed in a number of industries. A new office building being erected for the Oil Well Supply company is employing a number of men. Several othnr projects will also place local workmen. In Scranton, construction is being rushed forward in order to reach c,om- IBRARIANS ARE JAILED FOR BOOK REPLACEMENTS pletion before the coming weather. However, permits of cold for new construction were less in number than during any other month of the year, The Scranton chamber of commerce has succeeded in its efforts to have a new silk machinery company begin operation. Large outputs of coal are causing optimism In this region. Sore aching joints?
