MONDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1926 Beneath the rvl of men entirely great, The pen U mlghier than the sword. Edward Bulwkr Lytton. '"' REGULARS ON GUARD DAUPHIN COUNTY stood enthusiastically bac: - . of a ' f a - vorite son for the gubernatorial office in the May primary and as the chosen nominees of the Republican party sweep through this section of the State in f - eir campaign tour this week they need have no doubt whatever as to the loyal support of the party - leaders and workers throughout the Susquehanna and Juniata valleys. Republicans hereabout' '' are built that way. They just naturally accept, the results in any preliminary bout and line up solidly for the ticket. i Any other course would be contrary to organization principals and the cackling of little Democrats over imaginary resentment crowing out of the defe. . of a Dauphin county candidate' in the primary disturbs nobody. Indeed, the loyal and sincere workers In Dauphin county are going to demonstrate to the State organization that this sector of the battle front is manned by regulars. Also, let it be understood Republicans favor "Coolidge and the Jull Pay Envelope" and from top to bottom the ticket will have earnest jguppoTt. One X in the first column will do the business of signing on the dotted line. ' A "nifty" young man hardly ever Is a thrifty young man. TW0 WORTHY MEASURES CO - OPERATING with other organizations the State Chani - ber of Commerce is putting 3bn its armor for a readjustment of the chaotic . assessment and tax collection system of Pennsylvania. No movement could justify greater interest and more earnest discussion than this serious and utterly unnecessary problem. Practically every one who has given the matter even the slightest attention will agree that the enormous waste in tax collection should be corrected by prompt and effective legislation at the coming session of the general assembly. ; It matters not how strong may be the lobby against such a measure the people back of the legislators are powerful enough to bring about this necessary reform. In the past the chief '.rouble has been a great deal of noise before the session and a lot of criticism after, but no real support f those who are carrying the banner when the time is ripe for action. Tax collection costs are little less than a public scandal while assessment evils aTe even, worse and it is o the credit of the League of Women Voters that this organization has been unearthing all over the State the results of a system grown arrogant through its success in the past. - j Taxpayers are goinfc, to' watch the outgo from now on and no better place to start than in the assessment of property and the collection 'of taxes. Through the State Chamber of Commerce ' it has been V demonstrated that the present metho'.s ire antiquated and illogical., Bills ml w 111 If should be prepared long before the session In January and put into the hands of every taxpayer with an urgent appeal to get behind the legislators. Irenee DuPont thinks a chemical may be discovered that will enable us to do without sleep. But what's the matter with a baby? A BIG JOB DR. RALPH D. IIETZEL faces a big job in the presidency of State College, to which he was recently elected. State College is a ward of the State, but the State has behaved toward it more like a harsh stepmother than a fond guardian. It is the Cinderella of the State's educational family, and here's hoping Dr. Hetzel will prove to be its good fairy. State College is what it is despite the neglect of the Legislature rather than because of legislative generosity. Nor is this entirely due to the wilful neglect of the Legislature. So many influences have been brought to bear upon legislators for grants of money for institutions of higher learning that State College, situated far from any great center of population, has suffered that others might prosper. Until the men who distribute the State's funds can be brought to a proper realization of the fact that State College is in Teality the apex of Pennsylvania's free school system and part of it, the institution will not come fully into its own. To educate people and public officials to this point of understanding will be part of the important work entrusted .to Dr. Hetzel. The task is big enough and important enough to challenge the best in any man. State College has a growing army of supporters and admirers and the new president will find many champions of the school among those who know its accomplishments under grave handicaps and its possibilities if properly financed. A homely girl has her troubles, but she is not annoyed much by - the stares of street loafers. SUMMER WHITE HOUSE ALL . this congressional talk about a permanent "Summer White House" is pure bunk. Presumably the purpose of a "Summer White House" is to afford a President opportunity to Test and recreation under conditions personally pleasing and restful. To compel a President to spend his vacation in a given place would be as unreasonable as the enforcement of laws setting aside particular places fOT any of the rest of us to spend our holidays. But aside from the iijustice of the proposal it is filled with a dozen varieties of dynamite. Sec tional jealousy would be aroused by whatever choice Congress would make, whereas the country is quite content to let the Presi dent choose his own place of sum mer residence from year to year. Also, a permanent location would encourage the development of a diplomatic colony that in time would fill the President's vacations with very much the same kind of activity from which he seeks to escape when he leaves Washington in the summer season. Let the President choose his own vacation places; In has little enough voice as to what he may or may not do. Even the woman who is a cat will. purr if you stroke her fur the right way. DAILY POEM AUTUMN THRESHOLD - Between the sunset ant" the dark The whole year hangs in green suspense; The - apple, leaf and apple bark Have swelled their last; above the face The sumach's fur is ripe for frost. All life is run. no life is lost: The red fruit shines, the fly and mouse Edge closer to the barn and house. Between the sunset and the birth Of yellow star and white moon blade The year hangs wholly still. The earth , i Broods on its leafy light and shade. The spotted a Jtlers of the tree J Breathe introspective mystery; A crest of gTanite; shadow - browed, Lifts Dream itself against a cloud. This interval between the greed Of Growth and Death is - more than these. Is too much asked, rs too much freed.?. . Is silence perilous with keys? It will not last, it will not Hold; Death strikes the green with yel - . ; low cold, ' Across the moon black leaves are - blown ' . And the wind pulls the red fruit . down. r FRANK ERNEST HDLL. : Wicked Cease Troubling There the wicked cease from troubling and the weary are at rest. Job 3,17. . WHEN A FELLER NEEDS A FRIEND CALL IT Let's see it was about ten days said (1) the World's Series would and (2) St. Louis would win it. It was a game worth listening to. Mr. Graham MacNamee told it very well. He was equally enthusiastic over the home run of Mr. Ruth of New York and the fielding of Mr. Thevenow of St. Louis. Nor did he forget Mr. Lester Bell of Pennsylvania, who, in the opinion of this column, was Mr. Alexander's mct truly helpful accessory' in the last inning. It - is to be hoped young Mr. Bell ance, after all the praise that has been and will be heaped upon his defenseless shoulders. The column recalls a dinner tendered last fall by citizens of McConnellsburg to a Pirate player who at one time played with the McConnellsburg team. It oc - cuts to us that we never heard of him again. Did he play this season with Pittsburgh? And was he as good as the tenders of the dinner led him to believe. But perhaps young Mr. Bell is good enough to survive even a testimonial dinner. At the risk of incurring the enmity of five or six of our million (160,000) readers, may we not suggest that it will save a lot of time hereafter if in a World's Series, right at the beginning, we consider each team to have won three games and then play a single game to be termed the play - off. In one afternoon, therefore, the suspense will be ended. The Tesult will be the same. And during this sporting discussion let us not fOT - get Mr. Jack Dempsey, recently dethroned by Mr. Tunney. In a signed article in the Pittsburgh Press yesterday Mj Dempsey was explaining his defeat. "Far be it from me to try to alibi myrelf," he said in effect. "Far be it from me to say Mr. Tunney is not an excellent pugilist, nor that he did not give me a severe beating. I am not trying to excuse myself I have no excuses to offer. Of course I was feeling pretty sick for the three days before the fight. And I took a big dose of paregoric just before the fight. Of course I could not see when I got in the ring, and my feet were like lead. Of course " And a lot more.' Perhaps Mr. Dempsey took a lot of paregoric about the time he might have joined the A. E. F. in France. Meditation In a Subway In a bright carriage Marie Antoinette , Rode through the streets with her head tilted high; ' , Nobody touched her or jogged at her. arm, Dared brush against her while hurrying by.

Rode as she pleased through the Place la Ven - ; dome ; . Rode like the wind on the highways, we'll bet - Rode at top speed when 'twas to go home. She never rodV back of a dawdling "hearse," . No long line of slow - pokes e'er made her fret; , From the crowd, when she died, came many a curse .But ah! it was 'worth it, Marie Antoinette! The Philadelphia Ledger yesterday announced that county - fair time has arrived in Pennsylvania. Reports (it said) from Allentown, Reading, York, Lancaster, Doylestown and other Pennsylvania towns show the. fairs will be bigger and better than ever, this year.

(Answers to these queries will not be supplied.) 1 On what Harrisburg street is there a drinking fountain fOT dogs? 2 How far from the outskirts of Harrisburg was Camp Curtin in Civil War Days? 3v"hat Hill street is far more crooked than Crooked street? 4What building on Paxton street was once as bonton a hotel as any inland Pennsylvania hamlet cpuld boast? 5What Harrisburg ' man, in his temperance weekly, was responsible for the agitation which brought on the Capitol graft investigation? 6 which Harrisburg family owned the first "upright" piano? 7 Into which Front street home are antique dealers from the entire eastern part of the United States eager to penetrate as burglars, if that is the only way? 8 What Harrisburger owns a Rolls Royce, but never uses it? 9Wrho owns the Walnut street bridge? Why? 10 What Harrisburg youth, now an old man, sneaked over to Gettysburg July 2, 1863, to see if there were really a battle in progress? F. jAEKEL. We seem to have missed something in New York, despite the experience in the toggery shop which, as you recall, left nothing (or less) to the imagination. But read this, from the New, Yorker, concerning the opening of the Club Anatole: . "The revue, which goes on at intervals until very late, consisted of numbers of cuties, not one of whom had lost her appendix, clad in variations of the brassiere." How we wonder would the writing gentlenrn get all that Information about the appendices? Evidently, however, night clubs are night clubs, no matter what their name. "In short," says the New Yorker, "a place for those whose souls are of tinsel, whose dresses are of rhlnestone, and who pay their $5 couvert from the proceeds of eggs and butter." And we wonder if about the year 1916 Texas' Guinan was employed at a Harrisburg establishment (Third and Walnut) in which the pugilistic encounters . averaged six to the half - houT? Concerning Texas Guinan's. place on Fifty - fourth street the New Yorker says: "The club is terrible. It is rowdy, it is vulgar, it is maudlin, it is terrifically vital. You realize this as soon as you have left, and tell all youT friends not to go near the dump." Sounds like the Harrisburg place of 1916. Also old" White Hall, opposite the Courthouse. , Well, we've made a gentleman a small wager that the Fearless Whizzbang, despite its 52,000 miles, will take a party of five to the Army and Navy game in Chicago, Saturday after Thanksgiving, rn less time than he can possibly imagine. Suppose we hop off - about noon Wednesday. Erie hat night. Chicago the next night. Perhaps Thanksgiving travel, may be heavy. We may not be able to go all the way through Thursday. But what do you say to 10 o'clock Friday morning? Well, that's what the gentleman said. A long time ago, we remember, the drive from York to Harrisburg :was a terror. If we remember correctly, Mr. Bill Douglass of Senator PeppeT's entourage told us time was when York was a half day's ride by auto.' Six years ago it was a tough two hours. And now well, they tell us some of the commuters call it twenty minutes from York bridge to the bridge at New Cumberland. ' These gentlemen, of course, know the curves and grades so well that they need slow down no lower than fifty. Well, a good curve deserves not" more than fifty.: . ' . ' .'. , v M. H. J. sery was found murdered in his flat on June 18. Mabel and another girl are held without bail, charged with the murder . ; Dorothy Smith was one of the most beautiful girls in a small New England town. She came to New York all alone and got a job as a model. The other night she went to the house of a - youth named Francis Murphy, whom she had met at a Toadway night club. j Young Murphy's parenta were at tending a convention in Syracuse. While the girl was there, ' another youth named John J. Fitzpatrick, came in. Some time later, .the girl, clad only in a pink silk chemise and a loosened negligee leaped 'from the window of the apartment to the pavement below. Before she died she told a policeman she had been ! attacked. The two youths are held i In connection with her .death.. By BR1GGS REPUBLICAN State candidates! fresh from an eminently sat - j w isfactory tour of western and northwestern counties will come into Central Pennsylvania late today to begin their visit o the Juniata valley and then swing into the Clinton and Clearfield section. The campaign, has only a little over three weeks to go and Republican leaders and fair - minded observers agree that in spite of all the Democratic racket the Keystone State is going to return its customary nia - ioritv for the ReDUblican ticKet and also confound the prophets of mourning by sending majority party members to' congress very generally. Methods of the Republican leaders, in running the campaign are not at all to the liking of the Democrats, the kickers ana me fault finders. but they do seem to be eettine results and reports of actual conditions from the counties of the State reaching the State headquarters in Philadelphia are all running one way. And nothing in sight seems likely to cause any change. State Treasurer Samuel S. Lewis, member of the' Republican organization executive committee from this section, who is to ac company the candidates to - day and to - morrow, says he has been struck with the manner in which all ele ments have been uniting in behalf of the Republican ticket, an opinion also exnrersed by men who have been with the campaign party in other sections. So many claim were made about groups turning in for the Democratic ticket that when the acid test is put on them the results are laughable because in almost every instance they turn out to be autumn bunk. The truth is this is another Republican year in Pennsylvania. Democratic State Chairman Cornelius Haggerty, Jr. has again nnaHfieiUas a humorist. For the last week or so William B. Wilson, minority candidate for the United States Senate, has been unconsciously adding to the funny stuff of the campaign by insisting he may be ''counted out." As the prospects for anything like a heavy Democratic vote are dwindling day by day the ancient from Tioga has been furnishing more amusement than argument. And now comes Mr. Haggerty with a call for William S. Vare to retire from the Re - nnhlican nomination for senator 'and John S. Fisher to get out of the race lor governor, just exactly under . what complex1 the PViilarlclrvhlnn. whn has lfltelv fnund considerable to Pennsylvania west of the city line is laboring many observers or Pennsylvania pontics aver they can not mscoyer. The truth about the Demo cratic campaign is that its two headed, speech program is making it ridiculous and the brains of the party are concentrated on gobbling uppresidential delegates two years hence rather than on making good on some of the extravagant claims Of 1926. ' ' Congressman Vare's straight from the shoulder national issue talks and Senator Fisher's . level t headed discussions of the problems of the campaign, the administra tion of State business and suggestions for legislation have, made an excellent ; impression during , the tours the last three weeks. The candidates closed the week by a visit to Indiana where everyone went to church. Senator David A. Reed, who spoke with .the candidates last week, said in Pittsburgh after his return from a flying visit to Wash ington that he expected Mr. Vara to be seated as senator as a matter of course. The matter of fact way in which he discussed the proposition was quite disconcerting to shouters of the opposite in Pitts burgh as well as Harrisburg. KELLYGRAMS DOES EDUCATION AVOID REALITY? A FRIEND of mine recently arranged to place his son in famous preparatory school that has long been unusually successful at gaining admission of Us graduates into leading colleges. This parent was under the impression that the school not only helped a boy to pry his way Into 7 1 M education. Yet, being of a somewhat inquisitive nature, he went personally to have a look at the school before finally turning his son over to its care. v In looking at a recitation room used by classes in biology and zoology, he noticed what appeared to be book - cases all around the wall. The doors of these were of glass, but painted black to hide whatever was within. Out of curiosity, the visitor tried to open one of the doors to learn what kind of books were used. But the doors were all locked. "Those cases are filled with stuffed birds and small animals of various kinds," explained the' i. 1 1 nUnn.ln. t, 4 llhnitt f 1..

To avo:d such distraction, we "In other words." sueeested the about animal life, you prefer to have than look at animals. From that clue, the parent every department of the school was successful in getting boys into college because it aided them in memorizing such approved facts as were most likely to be asked in entrance examinations. They were not taught to think for themselves kind of school. My friend decided to place his boy elsewhere. Old Bill Jordan, who preceded George Lorimer as editor of the Saturday Evening Post, used to say: "If a schoolroom radiator makes too much racket and a man comes to fix it, nine teachers out of ten will admonish the pupils, to keep their eyes on their books, instead of telling them to close their books and learn about something estinsr." We have made progress in education, but evidently it will be a long time before we cease to pay an unwarranted respect to dull textbooks. i We are still suspicious of reality. T WAY I FEEL ABOUT IT A THOUGHT FOR TODAY Modesty which is a virtue In a woman may be the ruin of a business man. WISDOM If you are good for nothing and know it, you have a measure of wisdom. EPH SXOW "Troubles may never come singly, but they usually depart singly, if at all," said Eph Snow in pessimistic mood. WHO REMEMBERS When you could tell there was going to be a funeral because the cab drivers appeared on the streets in silk hats with nickel buckles in front? . MINOR MUSINGS If Shakespeare were alive he might revise It to read: "All the world's a screen and the men and women merely payers. If you wish to be absolutely sure of It, you'd better gret all the Joy there is in life while you are living. Those Nebraska moonshiners who were placed upon a bread and water were placed upon a oreaa ana waier diet probably didn't mind the bread. "Be sure you're wrong, then compromise," is the motto of one successful politician. A good many young people seem to think that when they bought a marriage license it was a fight promoter's license. . WILBUR E. SUTTON. SHORT WALKS IN AND j ABOUT HARRISBURG Although Fire Prevention week is over, the suggestion that the inspection of the fire apparatus of " Harrisburg con ducted . by Chief Marion Verbeke on State , street be made something of a cere When Fire Prevention Began Here mony and part of the observance of this precautionary period may not be out of place. Harrisburg has been interested in fire protection for over a century and a quarter. The Oracle of Dauphin was much concerned back in the middle of the last decade of the eighteenth century over the defenseless condition of Harrisburg and there are extracts' from reports of town meetings referred to by chroniclers of old days In this place. The interest of the official side of the community in fire prevention and protection is evidenced by two ordinances, one the celebrated act of 1813 when the town was divided into two districte, This was ' right after it had become the State Capital and Market street was the dividing line. The lower , fire company hsld forth somewhere on Mulberry street and the upper, which was the Friendship, in the frame building on the river front just - above Market street, some years later the cause of a lawsuit determining municipal ownership of what are now the riverside parks. Both of these fire houses were within a short walk of the Courthouse, then the center of business here for it was also the State Capitol. This Ordinance of 1813 has often been quoted for it required every householder to keep a fire bucket, to have chimneys swept and to pay fines if he did not turn out at a fire.. But it was the ordinance of 1822 which ! was the real Are preventer. It forbade people from carrying fire from one house to another, carrying of ' lighted candles in barns or stables, "except in lanterns" and other things as well as absolute prohibition of smoking in dangerous places. . As Fire Marshal Wil liam Zi Morgan says now and then we 'can find something rood in the old time ordinances enacted to pre vent what was a very real danger in those days of wooden houses and fire ' apparatus which seems like mere toys nowadays. ; That State street's display was worth while: .
