O'HARA MANAGER Bell Phone: 721 HISTORIC BATTERY B' ORDERED DISBANDED Scarcity of Enlistments Said to Be Reason - Unit to Be Relocated at Tobyhanna, Wyoming County Report Current Local Armory to Be Sold. PITTSTON, Jan. 9. That Bat - - tery B. 109th F. A. has been dis - m.... banded was made known today when the last item of federal equipment at the local armory was transferred to the 109th F. A. Armory at Wilkes - Barre. Rumors had been current for some time that the Pittston Battery was to be disbanded but nothing definite was known in the matter untii today. Scarcity of Recruits A scarcity of enlistments is re ported to have prompted regimental headquarters to disband the Battery and relocate it at Tunkhannock. Wyoming county. If this plan is carried out it will be the first time that a battery of the regiment has been established elsewhere than in a Wyoming Valley town. In re - tent months interest in Battery B. had been at a low e' and enlistments were becoming more scarce as time progressed. One year ago the First Battalion Combat Train, which was a local unit of the 100th F. A. was disbanded here and relocated at headquarters at Wilkes - Barre. The officers in charge of the regiment alter an exhaustive survey of conditions at Tunkhannock are convinced that the Wyoming county town is large enou"h to keep a battery of field artiery recruited at all times up to its peace time strength of sixty - five men. Several months ago when the Stables of the Battery on North Main street were taken over by the Eagen Oil company, the horses attached to the local unit were trano - lerred to Wilkes - Barre. In line with the announcement tnat Battery B, has been disbanded it has been learned from a reliable source that the local armory will be soid by the state as soon as a suitable buyer can be nmvhacpri onri a huge armory housing all of the units of the 109th F. A. will be erected on a site that has been purchased by the state on the west side of the river. Battery B of the 109th Field Ar - f e - ,r,y - ,7'as orSanized in the Spring of 1916 and the unit served with the Pennsylvania contingent under Major General Funston at El Paso icA., Hiieii rancno villa was active I Winters, E. S. Snyder and Leo A. iiemey were tne urst commissioned officers of the battery. Three infrntry companies of the old Ninth Regiment - Companies C, H and M were merged to form the unit of field artillery. After the Mexican trouble subsided the battery returned to Pitts - ton two weeks after war was declared with Germany. The outfit was asain mobilized in the late Summer and served at Camp Col. Rabcrt Eruce Ricketts, West Pitts - ton: Camp Hancock, Augusta. Ga., and overseas in Belgium and in France. Captain Troxell succeeded Captain Fleischer as battery commander and served until he was wounded in France. The battery saw active service in the Argonne Forest at Apremont, where Col. Miner suffered the loss of one of his legs; at Ypres, along the Vesle river and elsewhere. Liteutenant Tierncy succeeded Captain Troxell as battery commander when the latter vas injured and from that time was head of the outfit until it was disbanded here recently.

Charles Dugan. fireman of the High School, appeared before the board tonight to tell about the habits and whimsies of steam pipes in connection with the directors probe of the recent deluge which flood the auditorium of the building when a water main in the roof broke. The break has been attributed to frozen pipes and the board has come in for a certain amount of censure for what their critics considered failure to maintain heat in the building during the Christmas holidays. Fireman Dugan came to the rescue of the board tonight. Fireman Dugan says it isn't true and heat was maintained during vacation. Wrenched Loose. It is Fireman Dugan's opinion that the pipe was v.Tenched loose from a temporary connection made some time a to. The pioes are not tied down and have a tendency to leap ud under pressure, it is said. In regard to the low temperature in certain rooms Fireman Dugan says that he always kept the proper pressure on and that fault must have been that of the distribution system. Director Josenh' Kerins. himself an ens;iner. told the directors that trouble miht have been coused by worn - out dio.phragns in the radiators or to the fact that the vent' - lator fan was throwin? too much cold air in.

LEWIS URGES PARENTS INTEREST IN CAMPAIGN (Continued from Page Three) to supply the mnterinl for this protection, but they cannot lorce you to take advantage of it. Medical science has evolved many preventives of disease, but no doctor ra.n prevent epidemics, unless they have full and complete co - operation of the public. Diphtheria has again made Its appearance In nearly every boroutih and township in Lackawanna county. The disease has not become epidemic, because the health department has quickly scr - legnted the cases as soon as possible Rftcr their appearance, and endeavored to protect those who are known to have cben exposed. The sei;reRation of disease victims Is a fairtv simple matter, with a municipal hospital and physicians to handle the eases, but immunization is not so easy because co - operation of the parents in essential. If every parent would co - operate as thev should, diphtheria could be completely stamped out of the United tSates in a very few years. This result has already been accomplished in some communities and could Just . as well be nation wide. Fathers and mothers unquestionably have the right to control their children :; morals, to teach any religion they choose, to supervise their conduct at home and In school. But no parent should assume the right to supervise his children's health. That is the business ot t I.e. doctors, particularly the doctors of the public health departments. Immunization against diptheria is a hiehlv efficient and perfectly safe procedure, and the records prove it. Scranton today has thirty known cases ci dirhtheria. It also hr.s a public health department organized to make the community healthy and to keep it so. There is no law making immunization against diphtheria compulsory. Physicians can find means of protecting persons, but they cannot force them to use them. Only the TUESDAY SPECIALS IN ALL OUR Meat Departments 7U& Cretonnes. Yd. wide.

The appeal is made to your own sense ot obligation and your desire to provide for tho welfare ot your children. From the age of six months to six years nearly all children are susceptible to diphtheria. The largest proportion of cases occur during the fifth and sixth years, at the time when the child is beginning to come into closer contact with other little ones in play or In school. But most of the d aths from diphtheria occur during the second and third years of life; in fact tMesi are the most dangerous years so' inr as diphtheria is concerned. For this reason the health authorities everywhere are urging that parents should not put off this matter until the child reaches school age. Pre - school protection Js best and should be given if possible, soon after the first birthday. I'erhaps prompt action now will pre Now Go Marketing!
