Thought to have been accidentally shot while on a hunting: trip, the body of William Hyatt, University of Arizona student, was held in the morgue here today. Four men searching for him in an airplane lost their lives when the plane struck a canyon wall and crashed in flames. The dead: George Peck, pilot; L. Whitman, Clifford W. Nelson and Bruce Mc-Intyre. The crash occurred when the plane, soaring over the Catalina Mountains in search of a youth reported lost there, hit an air pocket. The ship caught fire after crashing and was demolished. Its occupants were burned to death. Pilot and passengers of the plane were residents of Tucson. Peck and Mclntyre were students at the University of Arizona. A mountain ranger on patrol discovered the plane in flames and notified Tucson airport officials. A party of rescuers rushed to the scene of the crash. When they ar rived they found all of the occupants burned beyond recognition. Their bodies had to be taken away in bags. 'international Neva Scrvict CALGARY, Alta., Oct. 24. Six persons were seriously injured here today, when a Dehaviland air mail plane attempted to take off from a stubble field east of Calgary. The plane belonged to the Western Canada Airways Corporation and crashed into a bank at the side of a road, burst into flames and was destroyed. The pilot, mechanics and four passengers received serious injuries. HALF OF BRIDGE GIVEN APPROVAL From Page One side of the bridge on Sunday when a high ballast machine wrecked the northern half of the bridge, breaking the gas lines there. The railroad is standing all the expense incident to the bridge accident. The question of what will be done about replacing the north side of the bridge was not discussed today, but will be taken up at a second conference to be held in a few days, probably right after the lower half is opened, Mr. Sherk explained. The last of the debris of the broken section was removed To some observers it seemed to- j day quite likely that the South Harrisburg grade crossing abolition program, which, among other things, embraces the erection of a new and larger bridge at Paxton street, will have much bearing on the decision about restoring the northern half of the bridge. Under the order of the Public Service Commission the downtown improvement work is to be completed by December, 1929. It has been the understanding that the major part of the work would be started early in 1929 or as soon as the Market street subway widening has advanced enough to permit reopening of the subway to vehicular traffic. Consequently, it is reasoned that if the Pennsy did replace the north side of the Paxton street bridge now it would remain there only a matter of six months or so, if that long. Electrical Inspectors For Mines Appointed Secretary of Mines Walter H. Glasgow today appointed four men as temporary electrical inspectors in the bituminous coal mines. They are G. Frank Newman, of Uniontown, to be stationed there; Clyde H. Maize, Uniontown, to go to Greensburg; James T. Gatehouse, Johnstown, to be stationed at that city, and Michael Lecor-chick, Erie, at Pittsburgh. The inspectors were granted leaves of absence from coal or electrical manufacturing companies and will make inspections of the mine electrical equipment. The five largest bituminous mine disasters of this year were due to faulty electrical equipment, Glasgow believes, and the inspection now ordered is an emergency measure. First of New Sleeper Busses Arrives Tonight One of the new sleeper coaches of the Greyhound Lines Inc., operators of cross-country busses, will be in Harrisburg for the night, arriving at the Bolton Hotel about 6 o'clock, it has been announced. The bus is a forerunner of the regular sleeper coaches with berth accommodations for nine passengers. It is equipped with upper and lower berths, observation parlor, shower bath, Frigidaire cooler, kitchenette, jadio and phonograph. Manufacture of Old Furniture Told Club How the oldest piece of furniture were made was told by Robert Mat thews, of this city, before the lunch' eon of the Optimist Club today is the Penn-Harris Hotel. "The very first piece of furniture known is the chest which was made during the time of Moses, and from it have grown the bureau, tables and many other pieces," he said. The club has completed its program for the care of 100 boys' of this city, who will be given a recreational program every Saturday night during the winter. The classes will be eon-ducted in the Central Y. M. C. A., and will be in charge of members of the club. . POPULAR ARTIST TO BE NAMED AT LOCAL EXHIBIT Much enthusiasm has been manifest at the current exhibition of local art sponsored by the Art Association of Harrisburg on view at the Public Library Gallery. All who have attended the exhibition have been eager to cast their votes for the most popular work, and a number have signified their intention of revisiting the gallery before making a decision. The winner of the popular vote will be announced after the close of the exhibition next Tuesday. The award, to be made by a jury of prominent out-of-town artists unfamiliar with the local exhibitors, will be determined upon today, and announced at a later date. Members of this committee visited the display this morning. Two hundred and forty-one persons visited the gallery yesterday to view the pictures, sculpture and batiks despite the inclement weather. The majority of the spectators were adults in contrast to Monday's attendance, when a number of school children were present. Duplicate Pictures By a coincidence there are two sets of duplicates among the exhibits. M. Dale Smith, of Harrisburg, displays a sketch of fishing boats at Glouces ter, Mass, and James W. Minick, Camp Hill, has chosen the same sub ject. Both entries are pencil drawings and not unlike in style. Mr. femith also exhibits a good sketch of Market Square and an angle of the Bailey residence Bt Front and 'South streets. Mr. Minick's other entries are "Fishermen's Shacks, Re hobeth," and "Entrance to the Public Library." In the same way, Walt R. Huber ex hibits the "Old Graveyard at Pax ; tang," and Marie Wagner shows the same scene, except that the Presby terian manse is included. Both drawings are done in charcoal. Huber is a painter, illustrator and cartoonist. He studied at Drexel Institute and at the Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia. He has drawn cartoons for the Philadelphia In quirer and the Washington Times, and is now engaged mostly in commercial art, book and magazine covers, cata- JKS et,J Huber other entries are Ether." "Rockville Bridee." the "Capitol From the Island" and the "New Market Street Bridge." Landscapes and Figures Marie R. Wagner is a pupil of Mrs. Freda Widder Ledford. She paints landscape, flowers, figures and still life, but is particularly fond of portraiture. Her portrait of Woodrow Wilson hangs in the rooms of the Women's Democratic Club. Miss Wagner works in textiles also and won a prize at the Harrisburg fair for tatted lace. She also received an award for dress designing. The exhibition will be open every day from 11 to 9 o'clock until next Tuesday evening. The Sunday hours are from 2 to 5 o'clock. The attendance has been good from the start and is growing rapidly. The hostesses for today were: Mrs. C. Valentine Kirby, chairman; Mrs. John Harper, Mrs. William Miller, Mrs. William Moorhead, Mrs. T. P. McCubbin, Mrs. R. W. Stone, Mrs. Martin Fager and Mrs. Julian Millard. Tomorrow's hostesses will bet' Mrs. Theodore Seelye, chairman; Mrs. Samuel Fleming and Mrs. Edward J. Stackpole. CAMP DONATIONS FAR FROM GOAL Executives of the Tuberculosis Society, in session in the Penn-Harris Hotel at noon today said that they are far from their goal in the campaign to raise $50,000 for the Preventorium camp, back of Highspire, but that contributions received in the last few days were so encouraging that the solicitations probably will be continued several weeks longer. A number of workers were unavoidably prevented from attending ' today's meeting, but reports that were turned in were characterized by Dr. J. W. Ellenberger, one of the active campaign leaders, as the most encouraging since the canvass was begun ten days ago. Thus far the solicitations for funds has been on a more or less limited scale, rather than a citywide campaign, and Doctor Ellenberger said that 99 per cent, of the persons approached since Friday made cash donations or pledged contributions to be paid in ten bi-monthly instalments during the next eighteen months, starting November 1. NAMED STEELTON ASSESSOR John W. Cassell, 524 Pine street Steelton, was named by the Dauphin County Court today to succeed Joseph Bricker as assessor in the First Precinct, Third Ward, Steelton. Bricker died recently. NEW UNION OF MINERS GIVEN STATE CHARTER The State Department and Governor Fisher today approved a charter for the Anthracite Mine Workers of Pennsylvania, composed of former members of the United Mine Workers of America. The new corporation was formed for the purpose of forming themselves into "an association for their mutual aid. benefit and protection in their trade concerns." The char ter was granted under the provisions of an act of 1889 providing that all State-wide labor organizations must be incorporated. The new organization was formed by Frank McGarry, of Pittston, who was unsuccessful in his efforts to succeed Rinaldo Cap-pellini as head of District No. 1 of the United Mine Workers and others who have broken from the older organization. The incorporators are McGarry, president; Walter Harris, Edward Hogan, John T. Hermansen and John Bellfield. The I headquarters will be in Wilkes-i Barre, and there is no capital stocK , as the organization is formed with no intention of making a profit. Start Concrete Work at Bottleneck on Monday The concrete paving of the Le-moyne bottleneck section will be started Monday at the western approach to the Market street bridge, and one-half of the paving will be laid during the coming week, lhat is the plan of the State Highway Department today, if the weather continues as it is and the utilities occupying space in the area move poles, tracks and other obstructions. The rough grading is about one-half completed from the Walnut street bridge to the underpass, and work on the York road intersection p.nd the Valley Railways car bams has been temporarily held up by the railways company , which has not removed a track there. . The grading at the Perdix im provement is not interferring with traffic on the old ,road, and the work there will be continued as long as the weather permits. The pcogress on the Elizabethtown road is.' slow. LEWIS SAYS BONDS COSTLY .From Page On Six years " ago, he said, to show how the State has grown in financial strength, there was in the general fund $300,000 with $18,000,000 in unpaid Mils. Last Friday with all obligations met the general fund contained more than $35,000,-000. In 1927' there was provided for the present biennium $30,000,-000 for the Welfare Department while $76,000,00"0 was appropriated for education. Even with these and other increases there will be a balance of $25,000,000 at the end of the biennial period, May 30, next. The 1929 Legislature will have, he said, $40,000,000 to $50,-000,000 for the projects fot which bond issues are asked. Potential Appropriations The 1929 Legislature, he as serted can arDroDriats $5,000,000 for State College, $4,000,000 for armories, $5,000,000 for lorestry and $7,000,000 for welfare buildings, the amount provided in 1927. This would still leave part of the unexpended balance available for increased appropriations to other causes. Mr. Lewis quoted Secretary of Highway Stuart to show thai $7,- 000,000 must be set aside anmrally from the motor fund to pay interest on the present $100,000,000 road bonds and that if the additional $50,000,000 debt is incurred $3,500,-000 additional a year would have td be taken from the road money, i or the doubtful pleasure of spending $50,000,000 in three or four years, he said, the people would have to pay $31,000,000 interest. If the road bond issue pass, he declared, the three-cent gasoline tax of today would eventually be four or five cents a gallon. Serious Consequences "If the proposed Constitutional amendments, providing for bond issues are approved by the voters in the November election," he said, "I maintain it is impossible for any individual or group of individuals to determine the ultimate result. Serious consequences may easily follow. In all probability the Com monwealth must find additional sources of revenue. Should a financial emergency result, the Legislature may be under the necessity of imposing a real and personal property tax for State purposes, which will hit the farmer, the laborer and the manufacturer alike. An income tax may be necessary, again affecting every group. It may mean a manufacturers' tax wiping out of the exemption granted the manufacturer, which exemption, I maintain, is largely responsible for the building up of great industries in Pennsylvania. A manufacturers' tax would be particularly harmful to Pennsylvanians in a period of keen competition such as the present, when the South is holding out so many inducements in the way of tax exemption and cheap labor, to lure away the industries of the North. . Much Money Available "At the end of the present biennium the cash balance m the Treasury, over and above the appropriation liability, will be at least $25,-000,000. Assuming that during the next , biennium revenues will increase in the ratio of the last biennium, and assuming further that the Legislature in 1929 makes as liberal appropriations as did that of 1927, then there should be immediately available $40,000,000 to $50,000,000 for the projects for which bond issues are asked. Why should we go in debt for that for which we can pay cash? "I believe the 1929 Legislature, if it desires, can appropriate the following named sums to the projects for which it is suggested we issue bonds: State College, $5,000,-000, more than half the amount of the proposed bonds; Armory Board, $4,000,000; Forestry Department, $5,000,000. which would take care of more than half of all the forest land available for State purposes, If appropriations were made in these increased amounts they would absorb only $11,000,000 of the $25,' 000,000 expected to be on hand, leavine $14,000,000 of this balance to be applied for Welfare in addition to the $7,000,000 with which the 1929 Legislature can duplicate the appropriation made in 1927. This makes a possible total of $21,-000,000 available for Welfare. Big Interest Charge "If as told by Secretary James L. Stuart of the Highway Department, in a recent statement, $7,-000,000 must be set aside annually from the Motor Fund to pay interest and sinking fund charges on the first $100,000,000 road bonds, the proposed $50,000,000 bond issue to be voted on a week from Tuesday will require half that amount annually, or $3,500,000. Thus the" Highway Department may find that instead of having approximately $16,-000,000 annually for new construction, as Secretary Stuart pointed out, it may be compelled to curtail its activities by $3,500,000 each year. This may result in either or all of the following: An increase in the gasoline tax, and increase in automobile registration fees, an increase in drivers' license fees, or an appropriation from the general fund for highway purposes, notwithstanding the allegations of the Highway Department to the con trary that 'there is absolutely no ground for the assertion that the passage of the road bond issue will result in increased taxes.' But surely the highway construction burden should not be saddled on the general fund when proponents of the other four bond issues are now firm in their declaration that the revenues of the general fund are insufficient to care for normal demands. $81,000 a Mile "The concrete road contracted for at $50,000 a mile will cost, in reality, $81,000 per mile. As I pointed out in a recent talk to the Independent Oil Men's Association, there are signs which lead me to believe a gasoline tax of four or five cents a gallon is not far distant, if this bond issue is approved. Motor car owners and drivers will say by their vote whether or not they favor such an increase. "The past history of Pennsylvania politics reveals that when once on the ballot, proposed constitutional amendments are rarely defeated. The reason is that those interested in their adoption vote 'Yes'; the electorate at large ignores them. I urge upon voters they vote for or against every amendment on the ballot That Is the only way we can secure a real expression of opinion." Smith Will Spend Sunday in Delaware International Newt Service . WILMINGTON, Del., Oct 24. Governor Alfred E. Smith, Democratic Presidential candidate, will spend the week-end as a guest of Jonn J. Kaskob, at Ulaymont, five miles north of here, it was an nounced today. The governor, Mrs. Smith and their daughter, Mrs. John Warner, will arrive at Clay-roont Saturday night following Governor Smith's address in Philadelphia. They will remain until Monday afternoon when the party departs for Baltimore. The group will attend mass at St Peter's Pro-Cathedral here on Sunday. Killinger and Enders To Celebrate New Road Community celebrations will be held in Killfjiger and Enders next week in connection with the official opening of twt new highway, improvements. Monday, October 29, the people of Jackson, Wayne and Halifax Townships, will hold an ox roast in the Enders picnic grove. There will be a number of speakers. The new macadam road from Fxsherville to Enders will be officially opened. In the Killinger Grange Hall Thursday, November J, an ox roast will be held in celebration of the completion of the concrete highway from Milleisburg to Killinger. The Lions Club and Motor Clftb, of Mil-lersburg, and the people of both com munities are assisting in the' arrange ments lor this event. ' Rehearsals at Hospital Are Halted by Relapse The condition of Robert Miller, 2143 North Cameron street, who recently underwent an operation at the Harrisburg Hospital is reported to be improved. Miller will take a prominent part in "Brighten Up," to be presented by the Jewish Community Players within the next two weeks, and Robert Miller bedside rehearsals were being held at the hospital. Yesterday, however, Miller suffered a relapse and rehearsals were suspended. As soon as Miller's condition is sufficiently improved the rehearsals will be continued. ESTIMATE COST OF POWER FOR STATE CAPITOL Estimates of the cost of operating the State Capitol's power plant during the past five years have been made for the guidance of Secretary Taylor, -of the Department of Property and Supplies, who has contemplated abolition of the power plant on Capitol Hill and installing power from the Pennsylvania Light and Power Company. - There were no figures available a month ago when Mr. Taylor first believed it would be possible to save the State money by using the local power. The figures compiled were turned over to nim today and within a short time he will be in a position to decide whether the State shall continue to generate its own power or buy it from the outside. , If the State decides to make its own power as it does now, it will probably construct a new power plant along the Pennsylvania Railroad so that the plant will have a railroad siding and the annoyance of the plant's dirt will be removed from the main Capitol building. SMITH OFF IN FINAL EFFORT From Pnge One expects to make in Boston tonight answering the Hoover speech, ac cording to those who share his con fidence. The movements for his departure on this new adventure seemed entirely disassociated from the early part of his campaign. In his two swings through the West he had a luxurious train of eleven cars, the only chartered train a residential candidate has ever used.' Now he is using only his private car, St. Nicholas, owned by his friend, William F. Kenny, Brooklyn contractor, and two ordinary Pullman cars for news papermen and a club coach for the mimeograph machines- . t In the thirteen days before election night, he expects to greet millions of people in Worcester, Springfield, Boston, Providence, Hartford, Bridgeport, Waterbury, New Haven, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Newark, Trenton, Brooklyn and New. York City. These citizens have 138 electoral votes, enough to swing almost any election, and Smith is casting his lot with them to the abandonment of all the rest where the fight has thus far been carried on. This last thrust is to be no family affair either. Only Mrs. Smith and perhaps one daughter, Mrs. Warner, will accompany him. There will be a continuous line of speeches and parades across the vital territory, beginning this morning with ten minute stops at Worcester and Springfield, Mass. Due in Boston at 3.50 His train is due to arrive in Boston at 3.50 p. m. to start a parade which will carry him many miles over the territory where political leaders have reported special enthusiasm for his candidacy. Afterward he will rest at his hotel fori his 9 p. m. speech at the arena before 13,000 persons. By automatic speakers his voice is to be carried also to Mechanics and Symphony Halls where 17,000 other persons are expected. The time schedule for the next two days, announced early today, follows : Leave Albany 10 a. m., arrive Springfield 1 p. m., arrive Worcester 2.35 p. m., arrive Boston 3.50 p. m. Leave Boston, Thursday ' 10.30 a. m., arrive Blackstone, R. I. 11.30 a. m. for parade through Providence; arrive at Hartford 4.05 p. m. (two hour stop) arrive Waterbury 7.05 p. m., arrive Derby Shelton 7.45 p. m., arrive New Haven 8.21 p. m., arrive Bridgeport 8.56 p. m., arrive South Norwalk 9.30 p. m., arrive New York City 10.30 p. m. " 1 1 1 E, i(ur LLOYD GEORGE AVERS PACT IS BLOW AT PEACE LONDON, Oct 24. The publication by the French government of the official white paper, explaining the Anglo-French naval compromise, has given away the "whole position regarding the immense reserves for continental armies," David Lloyd George said today. "Publication of the white paper means that any disarmament conference must be a sham," Lloyd George said. "It is a complete betrayal of the cause of world peace. Under this arrangement France, with our support, can maintain an army of 5,000,000; Poland one of 2,000,000; Czecho-Slovakia, 1,500,-000; Italy and the other European countries a total of 5,000,000. "The Kellogg pact, under these conditions, is not worth Cushen-den's railrqad fare to Paris to sign it. A clash, is inevitable Booner or later if gigantic armies are maintained, and the Anglo-French pact binds us to support France in its contention not only that these armies shall not be cut down but they shall not even be discussed." LOCAL SHOE FIRM GIVEN CHARTER; TO EMPLOY 175 The VeDarr Shoe Company, which proposes to open plants in this city and in Palmyra, employing between 100 and 175 persons, was granted a State charter today. L. V. Fritz, of 1875 State street. formerly connected with the Harrisburg Shoe Company, and with the Paxtang Shoe Company, and at nresent encased in thi Rhnc. business at East Berlin, is presi-j dent and treasurer of the new company. The other incorporators are W. K. Bowman and C. H. Gingrich, both of Palmyra. According to the present plans the company will open a manufacturing plant at Palmyra and a jobbing liouse in this city. Although a retail store may be opened later, the company will be concerned at present only with the manufacture of shoes, Bowman said today. Operations have not yet begun and a number of details remain to be worked out, according to Bowman. In the application for the charter the capital stock was given at $500.

McCarthy, golf architect and builder of more than 125 courses in the country; , The thirty-six holes of the links will rank among the first ten in the country, McCarthy said, since no expense will be spared in the con struction of the courses. The first course, to be known as the Hershey Country Club, will be situated immediately in the vicinity ox the Hershey mansion, which was donated as a club house. A garage will be built underground in the base of the slope on which the house stands to . prevent the marring of the landscape by automobiles of the players.

Two teeth of a mammoth animal which roamed through South Africa nearly 20,000 years ago have been found on a farm in Pi- landsberg, in the mountains north jr , W nl of Rustenburg, Transvaal Seven Divorces Granted by Local Courts; One Couple Married 31 Years Seven persons were granted dl vorces by the Dauphin County court today, one of the decrees terminating a marriage of more than thirty-one years ago. Mrs. Ella M. Lowery, of this city, who obtained a divorce, from Charles B. Lowery, whose present address is unknown, testified she was married August 17, 1897, and that her husband deserted her on December 10, 1905; "My husband could never stand to see me rest Every time I sat down he would leave the house," Mrs. Lowery told the court. In granting A. Henry Hossler, of Paxtang, a divorce from Jessie I. Hossler, 1935 North Seventh street, Judge Wickersham prohibited the wife from marrying Ed. Rowe, alias Edwin Kowe and Koy Rowe. who was named co-respondent in the divorce action. Hossler alleged infidelity on the part of his wife. Al CONSIDER PLANS FOR BEAUTIFYING PLOT AT BRIDGE Beautification of the eastern entrance to the Memorial bridge at Thirteenth and State streets is being considered by Benson E. Taylor, Secretary of Property and Supplies. Originally, it was planned that the local war memorial be located at the bridge entrance, but the money raised here for this purpose has gone to the State Armory Board for its development of the Army post for the National Guard on Allison Hill. The State bought land at the north of the bridge entrance to Miller street, so that the question of open space at the entrance on that side of the bridge deos not enter into the problem of landscaping the entrance. On the south side of the bridge along Thirteenth street are a vacant lot and a row of dwellings back of which are other dwellings. Benson E. Taylor, Secretary of Property and Supplies, today said that he will take up with Governor Fisher the question of asking the 1929 Legislature for funds with which to purchase some of the properties in this neighbodhood, so that the landscaped area on the south of the bridge entrance will balance that on the north side. "Just how many properties would be needed I do not know at this time," said Secretary Taylor today, "but the State should acquire sufficient land so that the entrance to the Memorial Bridge can be in keeping with the beauty of the bridge itself." Announces Norris Will Back Smith in Speech By United Prest NEW YORK, Oct 24. Senator George W. Norris, Republican, of Nebraska, will endorse the candidacy of Governor Alfred E. Smith in a speech at Omaha, Saturday night, Frederic C. Howe, executive secretary of the Progressive League for Alfred E. Smith, announced today. Norris has refused to endorse Herbert Hoover, but until now he had not definitely stated his attitude toward Smith. He has been campaigning for Progressive candidates for the Senate and Congress in the Northwest, avoiding discussion of national issues.- The Progressive League said that a national radio hook-up had been arranged to broadcast Norris speech over the Columbia chain. Norris is scheduled to speak from 9 to 10 p. m., Eastern Time, or 8 to 9 p. m., Central Time. Senator Norris will devote his address to a discussion of the position of the two Presidential candidates on national issues, Howe's announcement said. The announcement of the Progressive League came while Norris was in Washington state, campaigning for re-election of Senator Dill. At Tacoma yesterday he said that Hoover by. his position on hydro-electric power had "repudiated" all the Progressives who had backed him in the past GIVEN CANCER PRIZE By United Prest COPENHAGEN. Oct. 24. Doc tor Inders Friis, discoverer of a method which he claims will cure cancer in six months' time, was awarded a medical prize of $1072 today for his work. The discovery is a metal salt cure with which he said he already had cured rheumatism, lung inflammation and tuberculosis." though Mrs. Hossler obtained $50 counsel fees with which to contest the divorce action, she did not attend the hearings and was not represented by counsel. ' The other cases in which decrees were granted, conditional on the payment of the court costs, are: Mary K. Leedy, Highspire, against Charles R. Leedy, Highspire, desertion; William D. Boland, 2119 Penn street, against Harriett Boland, 3472 North Sixth street cruelty; David O. Hoerner, 645 South Front street, against Evelyn Hoerner, 138 Indian avenue, desertion; John E. Hewitt,' 438 Cumberland street, against Mildred M. Hewitt, 918 North Third street, cruelty; Calo-gera Scalamogna, 211 Blackberry street, against Joseph Scalamogna, 210 North street, desertion.
