Taken as a whole, the area now furnishes plenty of cover, but.

on the Cavalry Camp area at least, some cover will no doubt have to be provided. The possibilities of developing a really worthwhile game management area of the Mt. Gretna Military Reservation, and for a greater variety of species than customary, are better than for any other tract of State Game Lands yet acquied. The area can be expected to support cottontail rabbits, deer, raccoon, gray squirrels, ruffed grouse, ring neck Dheasants. bob white nuail.

Incidentally, Re figures in Philadelphia, with many up-State friends, and he isn't going to be shoved in the background without a lot of protest and may be a fight.

Friends of both Earle, who wants to be Senator, and Luther Harr, who would like to be Governor, are trying to push Logue off the ticket, because they say Philadelphia can't have all three places. Many say Philadelphia can't have even two. publicans are earnestly hoping that at more than $300,000. The drive to raise the necessary funds to reopen the mill was begun January 14, when a veteran employee of the mill, Charles E. May-nard, subscribed $1,000 toward the goal and organized a team of canvassers to help raise the rest of the money.

A total of 230 workers in the mill also purchased shares of Lawrence makes the brade. They marks the burial ground, while a memorial flagstaff stands nearby.

About the same time Lewis, who supply of game on the area is rather limited at this time. However, the character of the territory, with its different types of vegetative? covering, presents a very interesting upland game restoration project having unusual possibilities. Environmental conditions can and should be greatly improved, and when accomplished the area should become an outstanding example of what can be done through intensive management. Terrain long used to train Pennsylvania's citizen soldiers in the art of national defense will soon, it is hoped, become a well managed game restoration area.

The exhibit takes in the entire Cumbberland Valley, from Harrisburg to Winchester, Va.

One hundred and four paintings, the work of 54 artists, were shown, and attracted unusual attention, reproduction of Di Magno's work having been given prominent space in the Baltimore Sun.

Fritchtey Hall. Council of Republican Women of the Tenth Ward, will hold its in stallation meeting on the- first floor of Commerce, to be held at the Penn-Harris Wednesday and Thursday of the coming week. One of the most interesting papers will be that of Clarence L. Turner, of Philadelphia, on a comparative study of the corporate taxes in fifteen industrial States. In view of the fact that recently enacted tax laws are now driving industry from Pennsylvania, this study should be of more than passing importance.

The Chamber is going to hear the newly appointed Secretary of Public Assistance, Arthur W. Howe, tell of the State's relief program, and a flock of news hounds will be waiting around for that meaty bone, also. Walter Gordon Merritt, counsel for the Anthracite Institute, will discuss "The Anthracite Problem," and what he says will be eagerly scanned by prospective political candidates on both sides of the fence. It's going to be like that from start to finish, up and down, in and out, hammer and tongs, running the gamut of important business and governmental problems now before the public, and the meeting should add something of more than ordinary value to the literature of the current depression and how to get out of it. are sore on the Earle and Guffey administration.

John Hall, a former Central High School teacher, served the City of Harrisburg as legislator, and later as city treasurer, and now the present mayor. Also he is one of Harrisburg's outstanding attorneys. Mayor Hall will install the following officers: Mrs.

Strangely enough, that is precisely what quite a number of uncommitted county leaders are waiting for.

They are keeping quiet in order that public sentiment may and when it does, they are going the way the going seems easiest. Some of these say they would sooner win their counties for an unsuccessful candidate than lose with a Btate-wide winner. Their philosophy is that anybody who can claim to having "carried his county" in the primaries, will have to be reckoned with in the general elections, no matter what his primary preference may have been. There seems to be a lot of sense to that conclusion. Anyway, it is the lype of leadership which made the late Congressman Griest invincible in Lancaster.

He simply waited until he saw which way the primary tide was going, and then went with it, getting Into it when his decision had some semblance of being the deciding factor and thereby winning the approval of the beneficiary.

TELLS TIME BY CLOCK BUILT 150 YEARS AGO Rawlins, Feb. 12 H.

H. Moyer, principal of the Rawlins high school, tells time with a handmade clock built in Germany 150 years ago. The ancient timepiece, which has been in the family for generations, stands in Moyer's office in its original mihogany box case. A gold pendulum swings leisurely inside, and the yellowed face announces the time in bold numerals. "It only keeps fair time," Moyer said.

These figures were given by Mo-hamed Afzal Hussain in his Presidential address to the Entomology Section of the Science Congress here. The number of existing species of insects in India could not be less than 2,500.000, he said.

Of these only 40.000 species, it was estimated, had been studied in India.

Meanwhile Pinchot continues to saw wood, speaking four times during the week and carrying on constant campaigning among county leaders from his offices in Philadelphia. YVhen he appeared before the sportsmen in Philadelphia, he was warmly greeted, looked confident and made arrangements to "campaign with you" next Fall, as he put it to several other prospective candidates for minor offices among those present.
