Harold Pope, aged 20, of Tioga county, N. Y?, was almost instantly killed when his plane crashed from an altitude of 150 feet whilo stunting. Pope camo here to participate In the two-day air meet sponsored by the Olypliant post of the American Legion. IIIIKNS I'UOVK FATAL. McKKESPOKT, Pa.. Nov. 11.—Lueie Dayton, aged 2, of McKeesport died lust night of burns received when she fell into pall of hot water in her home .Saturday. fan try. orders Acting Sergcnnt Bernard Early to take two squads and put the enemy machine guns out of action. Early tnkps 16 men, Including Corporal Alvlii C. York, and advances stealthily through tho dense woods and crosses the hill via an old trench. Suddenly, they llnd they are behind the German ines. A moment later they run smack into 25 or 30 Germans, including a major nnd several other officers, grouped beside a little stream. Despite his lazardous position and the disparity In numbers, Sergeant Early decides to attack and the Americans open lire. Some shojta are returned but most of the Germans, believing they arc sur- •ounded by a large force, yell "Kama•ad!" and surrender with upraised lands. The Americans surround them at the point of bayonets. Suddenly, the German machine gunners on the hill realize what has hap- onnd, reverse their guns and open lire. Hell breaks loose. Germans and Americans alike drop flat on their tellies. In the first blattt of lire, six Americans are killed outright, literally shot to pieces. Sergeant Early gets a bullet through his body and two other wounds*; three mullets rip through Corporal Otis B. Merrithew's arm; Private Mario Muzzi gets It in the shoulder. With six of the detachment killed and three others wounded, including •joth of the other non-commissioned ifllcers, Corporal York takes command. With him are seven men: Privates George W. Wills, Michael A. Sacina, Patrick Donahue, Thomas G. Johnson, Feodor Sok, Joe Konotski and Percy Beardsley. The seven privates are busy guarding the 30 prisoners, all huddled on ground i for protection, and are shielded by them from. the German ire. That is all that saves them. Lying on his belly with his dead and wounded companions scattered around him, Corporal York begins licking off the German machine gun- tiers on the hillside with his rifle. Countless streams of machine gun bullets miss him, as If by a miracle. In a momentary lull, he yells to them to como down and surrender. The answer is a head-long charge by eight Germans. York, shooting as straight and as coolly as he shot squirrels in Ills native Tennessee mountains, shoots them dqwn one by one in quick succession as they lunge for him. York has fired exactly 28 shots—and 28 Germans arc dead. "Don't shoot any more, I'll order them to surrender and throw down their arms," says the German major. Surrender they do and so Corporal York and his little band march back to the American lines with 132 captives. Privates Beardsley, Konotski, Sok, Wills and Sacina march beside them, bayonets ready. Bringing up the real- is the badly wounded Corporal Mer- rlthow, leaning heavily / on Private Donahue. Sergeant Early ia supported by another comrade. Private Muzzi, despite his bleeding shoulder, Is able to walk unassisted. Eleven years have brought a lot of changes for those men who went through hell with Sergeant York that day. York, himself, is living quietly on his Tennessee farm that the grateful people of his state bought for him. Sergeant Early is now married and has two children, Charles and Bernard Jr. He lives in New Ha.ven, Conn., and operates a small restaurant. Ho waits on the tables while his pal does tbo cooking. For what ho did that day, Early spent five months in a hospital. Just the other day—11 yeara, less three days after his heroic exploit—the government awarded him the D. S. C. Except for York, who also holds the Congressional Medal of Honor, Early is tho only one so decorated. Four of the others got brigade citations for gallantry—but that was all. Corporal Merrithew lives at Brookline, Mass., and has a job at driving a tjruck for the state highway departr ment. Two little daughters brighten its home, Jeanne, 17 months, and Anna, 5—and he values them more than lie does his ono good lung. (Gas, If you must know). He enlisted 'and served under the name of William B. Cutting—a name he adopted when ho [•an away from homo as a boy—and is so identified in Sergeant York's book. Private Muzzi's old wound In his shoulder doesn't interfere with his job as a baker at tho National Biscuit Co. plant in New York City, although It cost him two months in the hospital back In 1018. Private Beardaley haa gone back to his father's farm near Roxbury, Conn. Ho is the son of "Nate" Beardsley, a champion breeder of Devonshire cattle. Ho haa never married. Private Konotski is a mill worker at Holyoke, Mass., and has two children. Not long ago when the War department planned to reenact the York episode In a military spectacle at Washington, they wero supposed to send an airplane to bring him in. Escorted by the local American Legion post and chamber of commerce, Konot- ski tramped out to the airport to take off. But somebody In Washington forgot to send the plane; after waiting four hours, Konotski and his escort gave up In disgust and went home. The whereabouts of Private Sok la unknown, Tho War department records his address a,s 90 Barnes street, Ashley, Penn., but inquiry there brought no answer. The same applies to Private Johnson, last reported us living at 414 Ninth St., Denison, Tex. Private Sacina, born In Italy and reared in New York, was working could not keep it at sufficient alti- Lude," hn said. "I trusted to luck. The speed of tho plane had been so greatly reduced by the heavy coating of ice that when we hit the thick bracken much of the force was broken by the young trees and shrubs." Webster has been an air mail pilot over the mountain route for nine years. He cut. off the gasoline Just before the crash and there was no explosion. The plane was wrecked, Webster lost consciousness nnd remained in the cockpit until dawn before he knew what had happened. Then, suffering intensely from .his fractured arm, he wandered through the woods until he finally found the road where he was found early yesterday. The mail was intact In the wrecked plane.

The trend of events of Wall Street continued to restrict business heavily. Brazil tractions were quoted at 41% after having touched 42; Hydroelec- trics at 38 with business done; Margarine issues continued to be sold from Amsterdam at 3%. Match shares and textiles were tin- settled but General Electric, Ltd.. of Great Britain, and Associated Electric, Ltd., were both a shilling better. Urtited Molasses dropped to 5^t pounds. Other sections of the market found business at a low ebb with scarcely any change of values. The leading British funds were unaltered. Home railways wero scarcely mentioned and little attention was paid to mine issues, which recorded a few unimportant Irregular movements. Oils were steady but business was low. A large attendance of members solemnly observed two minutes' Armistice day silence.

The following: poem wn» written a num'l>er (it years &go by Dr. t. P. 1'fttch, tlie ' well known Writer and Civil war veteran, as Altnonn'g tribute to MnrshnI Foclt, and n copy wan presented to tho allied lender when ho passed through this clly In his tour of Amcrlea. When skies were grim and black with war, And only lit, where blazed the fire Of thunderous ' guns and bombs of death; When gases fumed, in poisonous breath, O'er warriors brave, in conflict dire; When rent and torn, from strife prolonged, Where nations—greatest In our world; And millions, in most tragic hour, Strove for the mastery of power, Camo ARMISTICE, with war flags furled. Its cause—the verdict nations give— Was drive of Yanks to Sedan gates; Clearing St. Mlhiel of the foe, Giving to Huns that reeling blow, In which they saw the doom of fates. Then, presto change, from darkest night, To streaming rays from myriad suns;• , Like storm, to height, to calm of peace; Like anguish tense, to sweet surcease Was hush of roar of world-war guns. Acclaim ran riot, in its haste; And wires electric tidings flashed To capitals and seats of power— The wireless reaching heights and tower And ships, . 'gainst which the wild waves dashed. The outburst, o'er the world, of joy, In every form it could be shown; Eclipsing records, in its scope, Was only equalled by the hope, That war again would ne'er be known. Our Yanks returned 'mid great acclaim, Nor ever found such warm embrace; Nor tasted sweets of mind and heart, That visaged more of honor's art, In beam of eye, in flush of face. All hailed the anniversary day, When those in Khaki and 'in Blue, In triumph marched to honor date Of Armistice, with hearts elate, As victors for the right and true. Our civic hosts outpoured in pride, And every art that tribute lends; With childhood, age, in efforts vied; While crafts and trades, professions tried To swell the joys the day attends. Our nation paused, at Ruler's call; In silence bowed, mid prayer— acclaim; As soldier, typifying deeds Of heroes, crowned with highest meeds, Was laid to rest, unknown, by name. Enhanced in thought, as years go by, Will be the deeds this day enshrines; But not more clear will title be To honors then, than deeds we see At focus, where their valor shines. 10 ALTOONA RADIO & ELEC.

NlW YORK, Nov. 11.—One of the first reactions to the big atoclt break was tho prediction that bonds would now be more In demand. Nevertheless moro cautious observers have been disposed to wait for developments before standing back of this forecast. It was thought that there would bo a flood of new bond offerings which had been held In obeyanee waiting t for low money. But • for some reason the flood did not materialize. For the first time In a long time the only bo»d offerings In tht course of the ween wero municipal bonds. What Is the reason? Do bankers believe that the market will sag a little more*and that money will become even cheaper than It is? There Is some reason to believe this. At this time while there has been a huge How of funds back into the banks from the stock market, there has also been a heavy flow of funds out of the country —the funds of those European Investors, who have been supplying the call market. Also tho break came at time when tho country was getting ready tb make a tremendous demand on resources for tho Christmas trade and the year end settlements. There is good reason to believe that If the stock market remains at Its present levels, as Babson predicted, the supply of money will be more plentiful after Christmas and interest rates will tend to decline still further. Municipal bonds Issued this year have not been as large in volume aa last year. Nevertheless municipal expenditures on improvements have been greater. It is understood that a large amount of municipal bond offerings have been awaiting this break. These too may be deferred until after Christmas. If all this is true then bond prices are still at levels which leave room for price enhancement. And those who Intend; to go Into bonds m&y flnd that the time Is now rathe* than later.
