Volume: Excellent. Fading: None. By D. J. M. A FTER last night, there can be much speculation as to what is to be expected this winter. With an October night bringing in al most any station wanted, what will happen in December or January Not only does station after station pour in these nights, but all have unusual volume. CFCF, Montreal, rolled in with the ease of WJZ. The Canadian station seems to be influenced by ; the vogue for tunes in 6-8 time, and as a result "On the Riviera" and "Barcelona" wre popular numbers there. Even WNYC, the most illusive of the many strong New York stations, performed bravely. Even with the Chicago stations observing silent night, the air was ton full for elaritv at soma noints. WBAL, Baltimore, and WADC, Akron, had the lower waves much to themselves, although WGCP, Newark, offered clearer dance music after WBAL had signed off. Among the higher waves the presence of more stations is not an asset. Several annoying whistles that were not there last winter are now noticeable. The most perfect reception of the night came from WPG, Atlantic City. Nothing interfered with the movie review that WPG presented and the instrumental music that followed did not seem to be coming from a point almost 200 miles distant. npHE EVEREADY HOUR will present its first continuity production of the season this evening at 9 o'clock. The attraction will be Edna Ferber's "Show Boat," a present best seller, which has been especially adapted for radio use. The broadcast will be a combination of narrative, drama andi music. Lionel Atwill will be the guest artist and narrator of the hour. At- will has a number of theatrical sue cesses to his credit, the last of which was in "Caesar and Cleo patra," the Theater Guild production. During the dance program at WBAL last night it was announced that in the future more dance mu sic would be radiated from that station. The WBAL Dance Orchestra went on the air last July, break ing that Baltimore station s non jazz record. .Beginning Monday evening. October 18, this orchestra will broadcast four times weekly in stead of twice, and will be heard from 11 to 12 o'clock, instead of from 9 to 10 o clock. SPECIALIZING in announcing is a plan now being followed by WJZ. The New York station has just made Ted Husing its specialist in announcing dance programs. Tt f T A - .1 XITU: .1 o 1 mil i. j. lnurew vvmte mm uraiiaiu McNamee seem to have the field to themselves in announcing sports events, and M. J. Lross is the specialists for WJZ in operatic and classical music. A NEW Florida station that should be picked up on good nights is WDBO, as it is on the air nightly. WDBO is the Rollins College station at Winter Park, Fla., which operates on 239.9 meters, and uses 600 watts power. Tonight's feature, will be the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce program. ' ADMITTED TO HOSPITAL CARLISLE, Oct. 6. Julia R. Bishop nd Lester Jackson, Carlisle, have been admitted to the Carlisle Hospital for surgical operations. Mrs. Myra Peraut, Carlisle, and Mrs. O. O'Donnell, Mt. Holly Springs, were admitted to the hospital for medical treatment and observation. P. O. S. OF A. TO GIVE FLAGS MONTGOMERY, Oct. 5. The local P. O. S. of A. camp will present flags to the Clinton Township schools at the intermediate school on Friday afternoon at 2.30. An interesting program has been arranged by the teachers of the various grades. The public is invited to attend. men art created free, and equal, they certainly are free but not sa equal," says Margy. OH I MARGY! iw John m HELDJR RADIO DIAL EXTEND BEETLE QUARANTINE From Page One Chester and the northern portions of Bucks, Berks, and Lehigh Counties constitute the new area," according to the secretary. Director C. H. Hadley. of the Bu reau of Plant Industry, explained that on and after October 11 it will be illegal to transport or ship from this new quarantined area, the same as the former area under quarantine, any nursery or ornamental stock, sand, soil, earth, peat, compost and manure without proper inspection and certification as to freedom from Japanese beetles. More Beetles Found "The extension of the quarantine area was made necessary because of the finding of beetles in the added territory," Director Hadley said. "The continued spread of the Japanese beetle, may make it appear to the public that the State and Federal governnvents are- waging a constantly losing battle with this pest. The point is overlooked by the public that the immediate goal is to retard the spread to the greatest possible extent while perfecting control measures. In this way, damage is reduced to a minimum and the funds expended to the best possible advantage. "The Japanese beetle was first found in Pennsylvania in 1920 in the vicinity of Philadelphia. Since that year, it has been spreading outward each year, until during the present season it reached the busquehanna River covering in all or part ten counties. Control Work Progresses "Control work is progressing along several lines. First, thousands of parasites of different species, which live upon and kill different stages in the life history of the beetle, have been imported from Japan where they have kept the beetle from being a seri ous economic pest. Five different species have been imported, one of which is known to be established in the heavily infested area in Penn sylvania. "While parasites cromise the most hopeful ultimate control of the beetle, it will take a number of years for them to become effective and then they will do their best work in the most heavily infested areas. The outskirts of the infested area will never be heavily enough Infested to support parasites, consequently the parasites themselves will not prevent the spread of the beetle. "The second line of control ia chemical warfare. Insecticides, fumi-gats, attractants, repellants , of all kinds' and colors have been devised and hundreds of experiments have been run in the field and laboratory. Splendid results in control and reducing the loss from the beetle ravages have been secured with a combination, of arsenate of lead and flour used as a spray on the foliage of trees and vines in the infested area." The beetle has been spreading westward normally about fifteen miles a year. Artificial spreading of the pest has carried the Insect further. Recently A. B. Champlain, bug expert of the Department of Agriculture, put his hand into the air and grasped at a bug. It was a Japanese beetle. As a result Federal experts were sent here and located other beetles in the northern part of the city and one or two speefmena at Enola and other West Shore towns. 150 TAKING PART IN SPORTS EVENT Upwards of 150 sportsmen and members of the Central Pennsylvania Fish and Game Conservation Association are participating today in the association's tournament at the hatchery at White Hill. Although a number of preliminary events were held this morning, the scores will not be announced until 5.30 p. m., as a number of late arrivals will take part and will be eligible for honors. Dauphin and Cumberland Counties have large delegations at the tourney. Among the events on the program are rifle and trap shooting, pistol shooting, fly' casting, for distance and accuracy, and the mystery event. Denies Effort to Create Monopoly on Delaware The Associated Gas and Electric Company, a New York firm, yesterday defied charges before the Public Service Commission that it is at. tempting to gain a monopoly of the Delaware River for power generating purposes in its applications for territorial charters in eight townships in Pike and Wavne Cnnntie. The original petitions for incorporations were made by eight non-operating corporations in Scott, Bucking-ham, Manchester, Westfall, Damascus and a part of Berlin Township, in Wayne County, and Lackawaxen and Shohola Townships, in Pike County. MRS. JOHN ETTINGER . -Mrs. Nora Ettinger, 66, wife' of John Ettinger, died last night at her home near Halifax. She is survived by her husband, one son, James Wesley Ettinger; three brothers, Wesley Cannon, of Newark, Ohio; Sethe Cannon, of Utica, Ohio, and Charles Cannon, of Homer, Ohio; three sisters, Mrs. Edward Boyte, of Philadelphia; Miss Anna Albaugh, of Homer, Ohio, and Mrs. Polly McWay, of Newark, Ohio. Funeral services will be held on Sunday at 1.30 o'clock, with the Rev. H. C. Mathias, pastor of the Halifax United Brethren Church officiating. Burial will be in Long Cemetery, Halifax. WILSON TELLS OF G. 0. P. AIMS Front Page One commission of seventy-six, to bring about election reforms but charged that Republicans who dominated the party in the State had refused to approve anything that would insure a more honest expression of the voters. "Congressman Vare built his platform for the primary with the beer mug as the centre," Mr. Wilson declared, "but since the nomination he has turned the beer1 mug upsided own, and his managers say that prohibition is not an issue in the campaign. The 'full dinner pail' would be turned upside down with as much promptness If such action suited the needs of Mr. Vare." .The speaker referred to the developments before the Senate Investigating Committee in this probe of me itepuDiican primary and to conditions said to have existed in Allegheny County regarding the counting of the ballots. "Congressman Vare expended $ 800,-000 to secure nomination to an office that pays only $60,000 for the full term," he said. "This larn-e exrtendi- ture is legal under the law, but it nas a moral effect that cannot fail to be harmful to all the interests of the State." Mr. Wilson, who was Secretary of Labor in the Cabinet of Woodrow Wilson for eight years, claimed that the Federal Reserve law. enacted within that period, was the greatest financial safeguard ever created in the nation. He expressed the belief that the middle West had been saved from disastrous bank failures bv this law. The tariff is not an issue In this campaign, Mr. Wilson said. "It is being used as a 'red herring' to distract attention of voters from the vital issue in the State, the breaking down of boss rule in the State," ne.aeciareo. The speaker urged the entrance of the United States into the World Court and the League of Nations, in touching upon the national issues involved in the campaign. lhe Butler meeting was presided over by Attorney John H. Wilson. who introduced the candidates in a brief manner. Mr. Wilson arrived here from New Castle, accompanied by former Judge W. E. Porter, who entertained him over Sunday; by Attorney C. H. Aiken and other Lawrence County Democrats. Judge John R. Hen-ninger, of the Butler County Court, was host at- a dinner in the Hotel Nixon, at 1 o'clock when Mr. Wilson told a party of leading Butler County Democrats of his experience during eight years in the Cabinet of President Woodrow Wilson. Other Democrats who attended the dinner were: City Solicitor John H. Wilson, Attorney Miles Shakley. Attorney James E. Marshall and several rural members of the county committee. I W. C. Findley and W. E. Fashaeth, Democratic candidates to the General Assembly, were also present. NEW MANAGER FOR SENATORS Winn Clark, grown grim and gray in the business of baseball, who twenty-five years and more ago was a teammate of John J. McGraw, fiery manager of the New York Giants, and Wilbert Robinson, one of the few players to ascend to the presidency of a big league club, will come to this city tomorrow and before he departs it ia expected he will have contracted to manage the 1927 Senators for better or worse. Announcement to this effect was made this morning by members of the executive committee, formed to elevate the Senators from the finan cial doldrums. Clark, who. if he finds conditions to his liking and signs a contract, will succeed Joe Llghtner, who took over the team late in 1926. It is understood that pressure of other business prevented Lightner from being a candidate for reappointment. Has Good Record If experience counts for anything. and it probably does, Clark is admirably fitted to achieve success. For twanty-two years he has managed minor league teams and eleven times he has bossed championship congre gations. With Parkesly, Md., in the Eastern Shore League last year, Clark had the pennant won in August but, because of playing a class man, yielded twenty victories at the dictim of league officials. He was with Norfolk in the Virginia League for four years, finishing, fourth third and second two times and selling $40,000 worth of ball players to major leagues in that period. Ken Greenfield, young pitching star of the New York Giants, received his minor league polishing under Clark. Twenty-two years ago Clark started out as a manager when his playing days as a catcher expired and in his first season he guided Manchester, N. H., to a pennant. Two other pennants were clutched for Richmond in the Virginia League and another for Portsmouth in the same circuit." Other championships were in New England leagues. ' Clark was here two weeks ago and, finding the city to his liking, reported that he was not adverse to coming here, if financial inducements proved satisfactory. No adversity is expected on this score, and Clark probably will become a fixture. The chairman and treasurer of the executive committee are expected to be elected tomorrow. TRUSTEE ELECTED Creditors of Eli Goldstein, mer chant at 1300 North Sixth street, yes terday elected Paul A. Kunkel. at- torney, as trustee to take charua .of the business and assets, First Work on Memorial Bridge A massive steam shovel began excavations today for the building of the first of two ramps to be placed along the north side of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Memorial Bridge. The work is just off Cameron street, near State. The present contract with C. W. Strayer provides for that portion of the main bridge between Thirteenth and Cameron streets and for the approaches to Royal Terrace and to Cameron street from Thirteenth street. PATROLMAN HITS WAGON; FARMER IS BADLY HURT MIDDLETOWN, Oct. 5. Thrown from his wagon when it was struck by the motorcycle of a State highway patrolman near Fisher's bridge about 8.30 o'clock this morning, Thomas E. Lytle, 73 years old, owner of the former Daniel B. Keefer farm, one mile east of this place, was probably fatally injured. Lytle was driving to Middle-town with his wagon loaded with peaches and, at the bridee. the pa trolman is said to have attempted to pass him. An automobile traveling in the opposite direction is thought to have forced the patrolman to swerve his machine to the right, striking the left rear wheel of the Lytle wagon. Lytle's horse bounded forward and the aged man was thrown to the highway. He was taken to the office of Dr. H. W. Geore-e and then, because of his weakened con dition, it was deemed advisable to remove him to his home instead of taking him to a Harrisburg Hospital. He was injured internally ana is not expected to recover. The patrolman is said to have es caped injury. Ten of One Family Are Baptized at Service GETTYSBURG, Oct. 5. Ten chil-dren in the family of Mr. and Mrs John H. Bowman, of near Bonneau- vine, were baptized by the Rev. J. I. Summer Sunday afternoon, pastor of St. Luke's Lutheran Church, near ivituestown.

The street cuts through a high embankment much of which is limestone rock. GAMP HILL BOY STRUCK BY AUTO m Ralph March, of South Seventeenth street, Camp Hill, escaped serious injury shortly before noon today when an automobile struck him as he rode his bicycle into Market street from Cemetery lane, Camp Hill. The youth was hurled about ten feet. He was admitted to the Harrisburg Hospital, where an X-Ray picture will be taken to determine the extent of his in jury. The automobile was driven by T. A. Bell, of Wilkes-Barre, who was driving to Washington with his daughter, who is to enter a college there. A truck parked at the intersection of the streets prevented Bell and March from observing each other until it was impossible for either to turn aside. s Witnesses said that Bell's car was traveling about twenty miles an hour and that the accident was nnnvoirl. 'able. Lions Club Hears About Fire Prevention Week Firo Prevention Week waa observed at the weekly luncheon of the Lions' Club in the Penn-Harris at noon today. Mayor Hovertcr had as his guests at the meeting the City Commissioners, who have been fol- lowing with interest the extensive program on fire prevention conducted by the club. This morninc committees from the club visited every school in town and conducted an investigation and fire drill. II was found that the average time in which the children respond to a fire drill is slightly less than one and one-half minutes. F. Z. Franklin, manager of the special fire hazards bureau of the Auto mobile Insurance Company of Hart ford, was the speaker. He performed a number of experiments to demonstrate fire hazards which included grain dust exlosions, short circuits, improper use of gasoline and faulty storage ot inflammable materials. Pres. Charles S. Boll stated that the program planned by the club is working out successfully and thad the club is well pleased with the re sponse to fire prevention shown by tne community. 2521 PROPERTIES ARE SOLD HERE During the nine months ending September 30, 2521 Harrisburg prop erties, having a total assessed valuation of $5,811,900, changed ownership In September there were 824 trans fers representing a total assessed valuation of 641,800. While there were more transfers during the first nine months of this year than during the corresponding penoa oi last year, tne assessed valuation of the properties transferred during the latter period was $1,351,-800 greater than the valuation of the 1926 transfers. Realty was less active in September of this year than in the same month of 1925. MODIFY PARKING IN HILL SECTION From Page One and Fourteenth street. If this modi- fied regulation works severe hard ships such as necessitated the drastic no-parking rule, the parking privileges will be taken awav. Meanwhile the merchants promised to help the puuee emorce me new ten-minute regulation. The no-parking rile was instituted after a child had been killed and a woman severely injured by autos, due indirectly to parking near the Hill market. The merchants asked that the rule be modified to let their customers park long enough to do business in the stores in that section. Will Lay Water Pipe C. E. SchaunD arot the contract in lay water pipe in sections of Twenty-first and Fifteenth street at the combined bid of $1087.80. An offer of R. S.

GROUND TURNED FOR NEW BRIDGE The first ground to be excavated for the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Bridge here was turned this morning when the new steam shovel of C. W. Strayer, the contractor on the job, started to grade for the first ramp. This will lead from Cameron street to the State Highway Department garage. Next to it will be the approach from Cameron to the brow of the Hill at Thirteenth street. Work on the retaining walls will be started at once and then the digging for the piers will be taken up. The steam shovel was delivered yesterday and tried out, but the actual tossing out of dirt did not start until this morning. There was an enthusiastic crowd of workmen and others about when the dirt began moving shortly after 7 o'clock. The present work is on a line w;ith the old entrance to the Harrisburg Cemetery, lined with a double row of weeping willows in the old days. Most of these trees have disappeared and those that remain are not as picturesque as formerly. On a line with the approach at the top of the Hill other trees have been chopped down. New Patrolman Named City Council today approved the appointment of Harry Folsom, 123 South Fourteenth street, as a city patrolman succeeding Joseph Demma, resigned.

E. Spatz, of Chambers-burg, pronouncing the benediction. The conference will continue until Friday noon. Dohoney Declares This Only Way to Avert Repetition Of September 27 Wreck The establishment of absolute stops of all trains before proceed ing over the crossing west of Union station, South Bethlehem, is rec- ommended today by John P. Do- honey, chief of the bureau of inves- tigation of the Public Service Commission, as the only temporary means to avert such accidents as occurred at that point September 27. On that date six passengers and two railroad employes were killed and forty passengers injured when a passenger train of the Central Railroad of New Jersey ran into the side of a Lehigh Valley passenger train. The cross-over at the point of the accident is necessary and because of existing physical conditions it cannot be eliminated at once. The inter-locking devices were, said to have been mechanically effective but they "fail to influence or control the human element which frequently enters into accidents." Cannot Be Eliminated The elimination of the crossing involved in this disaster is out of the Question at this time, the re-1 port cites, by reason of the physical conditions surrounding it. Recommendation is made, however, that something should be done to remove the existing hazard and to prevent other accidents of a like kind. The time at which the accident occurred has been fixed at 5.48 a. m., which is the arriving time of the Lehigh train at Union station. The Central train, according to its time table, should ' not have departed from Bethlehem Junction before 5.54, the point from which the Central diverts from the Reading System, after which it proceeds to Philadelphia. Excerpts from the Dohoney statement follows: "Respecting the movement of the Lehigh Valley train, the towermen states that he received a tap bell indication that this train was approaching, the indication being given when the train was two miles distant He contends that he cleared three block signals and his contention is supported by the engineer and fireman and by a chief car inspector who was in the tower and observed his operation of the levers. "The signal for the guidance of the Central train between Bethlehem junction and South Bethlehem station is installed in the upper right-hand corner of the through truss bridge and is about seventy-seven feet from the nearest crossing frog. The engineer claims that its indication was clear but thus far there is no supporting testimony. "The fireman admits that he did not see the signal at all. The engineer also states that he ap proached the signal at a speed of -1 A. J. 1 - . M - . aoout twelve or mteen mnes an hour. The Lehigh Valley train at the same rate of speed was in view but the Central engineer was of the impression that it was another train (one which does not operate over the crossing) and consequently he failed to reduce his speed in time to avert the collision." RECORD NUMBER OF INSPECTIONS Building Inspector O'Brien and Plumbing nspector Hammersla came in for their share of praise in City Council this morning when their annual reports for 1925 were read. These showed that regulations of the building and plumbing codes were rigidly enforced through the largest number of inspections ever made by either department. Commissioner Hassler lauded the inspectors as "very competent officials" who are accomplishing big things for the city, the result of which, he said, will be more fully appreciated in later years rather than now. Where four inspections of plumbing work were made in 1924, five were made in 1925. The same was true of the Building Inspector's departmento, the reports said. The inspections were not mere ob servations bue ones in which the inspectors required the contractors to toe the line, Doctor Hassler said, add ing that the inspectors sometimes had to "keep a stiff uppen lip," but that they succeeded in obtaining strict observations of the adopted regulations. Council was also much pleased with that part of the Building Inspector's report which showed his office receipts from permits was $9073.66, or $423 66 more than it cost to main tain the office in 1925. The plumb ing inspector examined 699 sets of plans, made 2805 visits and participated in granting eleven licenses to master plumbers and seven journeymen plumbers. There are eighty master plumbers in the city. In addition to checking on building operations, Inspector O'Brien examined samples of all concrete blocks and bricks manufactured and sold in the Harrisburg district and found "all quite satisfactory and uniformly good in meeting the requirements of the building code."
