It may be of interest to these who attended the Communistic meetings and were sympathetic to the cause locally, to know that the police had a nearly every one of the gatherings an agent of their own. and that there is a very excellent record of their doings in the secret files of the Police Department, together with the names and records of the chief exponents of Stalin in this city. t It was known to the police, also, that there were many "Reds i r T1.. t-.,;,.,. .ittt.mlvtl a fli.nifiprlv aincug uie iiiemiiti ui mc iwurcu i "" -ut" " mass meeting in the Education Building Forum dining the recent ses- son of the Legislature.

Few, if any, of the thousands of persons who listen daily to the Christmas Musicale program while waiting for trains at the Pennsylvania Railroad station here, realize that it is the result of the thoughtful-ness cf two local railroad officials. The two men who co-operated on the idea are If. W. Jones, general superintendent of the Eastern Region and Frank W. Stoopes. superintendent of the Philadelphia Division .both of whom maintain their offices and homes in Harrisburg. Incidentiy, this city is the only one on the entire system that enjoys the inovation. and the experiment ;is being closely watched by higher officials. A recent poll taken among P. R. R. patrons revealed that the daily musical and radio programs are being enthusiastically received and that they tend to decrease the number of complaints on the part of weary cr lcnesome travelers. The programs are being presented through a special combination radio, phonograph and amplifying system that carries the music or announcements to all parts of the waiting rooms, and a special arrangement has been installed to permit the reduction of volume while train bulletins are being announced. For the duration of the Christmas season a selection of twenty holiday tunes are being presented, including such old favorites-as "Silent Night," "Joy To The World," "First Noel." and "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing." '- So, to Mr. Jones and Mr. Stoops, goes the credit of adding their bit of holiday cheer to the season and alleviating, to a great extent, the weariness of today's travelers. THE MAN IN THE WATCH TOWER. -. in his field: he was the most cele brated railroad engineer or his time, having pioneered many American railroads, among them the B. & O- and what is now the Boston-Albany Rnilrooad. But one hundred years ago, when the Russian Tsar called the American engineer to build the railroad from St. Petersburg to Moscow, the Russian mouchiks said that the rairoad would never be built. They insisted that the saints of the Russian Orthodox Chinch had in their writings foretold anything like a loco-time, and man cculd not create anything unforetold by the hold father. Then, as now, only more so. the combination of age-old superstition and inefficiency plagued the progressive leaders of the day. When Major Whistler did build the locomotive and the railroad for the Russians, the mouchiks decided that it must have been "the devil whom the foreign gentleman succeeded in catching and imprisoning in the boiler: the devil is straining to get out of the boiler, and so makes the railroad work." Other mouchiks. however, said that the clever American managed to harnes the good old Russian samovar and make it run at a fast clip. Convinced of fhe supernatural origin of the railroad, the Russians for a long time could not bring themselves up to facing the newfangled machine in a practical enough manner. Impressed by the American's cleverness, not only mouchiks and merchants, but nobles and officials as well, bowed before the railroad as if before an ikon. The House of the Harnessed Samovar, as they called the first station, was to be treated as if it were a temple: on entering the waiting-room, passengers had to bare their heads, and keep them h.irpd until they entered the cars. iiedtape was quick to clutter, the Russian use oi tne new mveiiuuu. Not everyone was allowed to use the iron steed a traveler had to have not only his ordinary passport but also a special permit from the Tsar's police before he could buy a railroad ticket.

Zahl's account of his adventures in search of giant ants in the jungles of British Guiana, to George G. Harrap & Co., Ltd., of London. The English edition will appear in the near future, probably early next year. "To the Lost World" was published here by Alfred A. Kncpf last month. H. J. Haskell to Address Classical Scholars H. J. Haskell, whose "The New Deal in Old Rome" was published by Adfred A. Knopf, will speak before the members of the Southern Classical Association in San Antonio, Texas, on December 1. His subject will be "After All the Romans Were Human;" for his book, issued last Spring, has brought him recognition as an authority on Roman life. . Yet the study of classical antiquity is only a hobby with Mr. Haskell, who Is by profession a juro-nalist, and indeed Editor of a great newspaper, The Kansas City Star. He became interested in the Roman way several years ago, when on ' a vacation trip to southern lNew Deal in old Home, which ne compared Jiome s nanaimg oi us economic problems with our own today. His book has been commended by such leading classical students as Professor Frank Burr Marsh, of the University of Texas; Professor L. E. Lord, of Oberlin, and Professor Arthur Walker, of the University of Kansas. "More Lives Than One" Published in England An English edition has just appeared of "More Lives Than One," Claude Bragdon's autobiography which Alfred A. Knopf published here last year. Andrew Dakers is the English publisher, and his edition bears a new title, "The Secret Springs." Mr. Dakers has also arranged to bring out in the near future an English edition of Mr. Bragdon's "A Primer of Higher Space." This study of the theory of the fourth dimension was first published by Alfred A. Knopf in 1923. and is now in its third American edition. The Dakers edition will have a new introduction, by J. B. Priestley. Activities of Appleton-Cerury's London Office Win Praise The English book-trade journal. "The Publishers' Circular and Book-serrers' Record," compliments D. Appleton-Century Company especially for their activities in this time of stress. The journal says: "D. Appleton-Century's London office are assiduous in their attention to the needs of book readers and buy-erSj and we have referred from time to time to the excellent 'Book Service' broadsheets which emanate recularlv from Bedford Street, and give the latest news of Appleton-' Century books.

Appleton-Century Company FEVER SPREADING Microbe, Found 111 the Rockies, Ccmmuiu-C2;ted By Fleas Philadelphia, Dec. 16 Possibility that typhus and spotted fever may be spreading throughout the country was recently expressed by Dr. Rolla E. Dyer, of the United States Public Health Service at a meeting of the College of Physicians in Philadelphia. Dr. Dyer, a pioneer in the study of the fevers, pointed out that the Rickettsiae microbe, responsible for spotted fever was, until .1925, found only in the Rocky Mountain regions. In 1938 it had spread to all except eight States. As far as is known, the disease is carried by wood ticks and dog ticks. Typhus fever is spread by rats iand is communicated to man by fleas. Dr. Harrison F. Filippin, of the University of Pennsylvania. re-; ported that typhus cases have been present in mild form in the Philadelphia area since 1911 but three were found in 1938. He advocated large-scale destruction of rats as a preventative method. Typhus fever, which until recently has been localized in the southern states, has a mortality MOON BAFFLING TO AIR RAID WARDEN Romsey. Hampshire.

Students bombard her with questions daily in regard to the legality of certain phases of the present European conflict. ' "The average girl." she stated, "is a more conscientious student than the nverage boy, but men have wider interests and usually know more outside facts. Mastering the contents of a testbook does not necessarily give one an understanding of political science." Dr. Branning does not look at all like what one would expect of a political science instructor. Sho's little and brunet and cute and it is somewhat astounding to hear her express herself on a subject ordinarily shunned by women. "Politics can be just as exciting as any other subject one learns," she said. "My love of history when I was a child led me to specialize in political science. The idea that most girls have to the effect that the subject is 'dry' is due to the fact that they have never tried to understand 'it." Asked if she thought women had any future in diplomatic service. Dr. Branning paid that the day has not yet arrived nor will it arrive in the near future when women will be as acceptable as men for diplomatic service.

Senator-elect I Kephart, of Philadelphia, became a I State Senator, was a "set-up" to be used as a jumping board for the re- tiring Chief Justice -to enter the ; Senatorial race. j Xo doubt Justice Kephart would j like to be a candidate, and, also, i no doubt, he won't be. So far as the Senate ceremony being a stage from which Kephart was to launch a senatorial boom, that is absurd, in view of the fact that the ceremony was arranged by Lieutenant Governor Samuel S. Lewis, who is no particular friend of Kephart, but is very closely aligned with Owlett, whom he will support if Owlett is a candidate. The chariness of county leaders to take positions at this time in a prospective senatorial contest is due, also, to the fact that if a senatorial fight is stirred irp it will be accompanied by a brisk fight for national delegates in almost all districts, as it would be natural for each of the aspirants to align with himself as many local candidates as possible. The desire of leaders is, if possible, to avoid delegate fights. Record Snatches The, Christmas season always brings many fine additions to the record catalogs and this year with the interest still growing, Columbia, Victor and now Schirmer have not disappointed. If you are interested in modern music by all means hear the Joseph Szigeti album of the Block Concerto for Violin and Orchestra. Mr. Szigeti has appeared in Harrisburg and his flawness technique and superb tone are familiar to many of us. The style of the concerto is rhapsodical and the music is atonal.

A grand gift for most any music lover would be the Fourteen Chopin Waltzes played in a most inspiring fashion by Edward Kilenyi. Mr. Kilenyi is a young pianist and his approach is often more realistic than many of the great 'Chopin in terpreters, but it is fine, vividly ex-J pressive playing.

Marines, sold iers and sailors took part, attacked and destroyed the pirate stronghold, seized the pirate ships and scattered the buccaneers, numbering nearly one thousand men. Soon afterward the apparently repentant Lafitte offered the services of himself and his men to General Andrew Jackson, who was making plans for the defense of the city against the British. This offer, General Jackson, badly in need of men, accepted and the Raratarians in charge of the artillery signally distinguished themselves at the Battle of New Orleans. Thus the U. S. Marines, and some of the Other Americans who took part in that battle, found themselves serving beside the pirate and his men, only a few weeks after they had helped to destroy his stronghold and seize his ships. The pirates were pardoned by President Madison, but two years later they were active again near the site of the present, city of Galveston. When pressure was brought to bean by the United States in 1S21, because several of the freebooter's lieufenants had attacked American ships, Lafitte suddenly picked a crew to man his favorite vessel, "The Pride," and sailed away into the legendary realms from which he had come.
