Washington. Nu\. 15.—.News that
ait American military mission, head
ed by Major General Charles D.
Rhodes will visit German great
headquartcis at Spa, Belgium, next
Saturday, aroused much speculation
here. .So far us could be learned no
official information as to the object
of ttie trip had reached Washington.
The purely military character of
the mission was regarded as an In
dication that General Rhodes' trip
was for the purpose of arranging
with the German high command for
the occupation of various fortresses
i.i Alsace-Lorraine, which lie in front
of the American lines. These include
the Metx-Thionvllle positions, and
Strassburg on the Rhine.
It is possible also that immediate
steps to relieve the food situation in

Movement to Honor Men Who Mode Supreme' Sacrifice I'or
Xat ion's Cause Gets Eavor From Officials; IV ishes
of Returned Soldiers to Be Consulted
Definite plans may soon lie made
for the erection of a permanent
memorial in honor ot' tho men from
the city and county who have given
their lives while in service in the
war against the Hun.
With the signing of fhe armistice
and the ending of hostilities senti
ment is steadily increasing in favor
of such action to show the appre
ciation for the sacrifices made on
the battlefields in France.
Mayor Daniel J., Keister has
heartily endorsed the proposal and
snid he will bring the question be
fore council in the near future to
learn the opinion of the other offi
cials. He declared that there is no
ueed to hurry the plans for erecting
suitable memorial and said that
when a committee is named to make
arrangements much thought should
be given so important a duty.

Major Gray to Address Mass;
Meeting on Navigation j
The feasibility of making the Sus- J
qtiehunna navigable will be the sub-j
jeet of a talk to be given by Major
William B. Gray at a public J
meeting of llarrisburg businessmen j
and shippers to be held Tuesday l
evening in the Technical High
school auditorium. The meeting
will be under the auspices of the
Harrisburg Rotary Club, and an
other speaker who will make an ad-]
dress on l.e same line of thought, I
but from a different standpoint, will
be R. A. Zenttnyer, chairman of the
Water Supply Commission of Penn
In order that ail shippers of lite
city may be. reached to hear these
two speakers, the Rotarians have
sent an invitation to all members,of
the Kiwanis Club and the Harris
burg Chamber of Commerce and
extend an invitation to all business
men of the city. The matter of mak-!
ing the Susquehanna navigable was
formerly presented by Major Gray
to members of the Rotary Club at
a luncheon held some weeks ago.
At that time Major Gray pointed
out that for the volume of water at
its lowest stagt, the Susquehanna
was better for navigation than other
livers in this country with less
water which have been made navi
gable. He cited as a striking ex
ample the Mohawk River in New
York state..
This statement seems to have
been supplemented by Congress
man Hampton Moore at a conven
tion of the Deeper Waterways Com
mission held recently in Boston,
when he spoke highly in favor of
making the Susquehanna navigable.
Major Gray's and Mr. Zentmyer's
addresses "Jiould have a special in

' by technical and businessmen alike

Harrisburg Man Has
New and Original Idea

One man thought Wilhelin ought to
be boiled in oil, another believed he
ought to be left to die in a little boat
in an icy sea nnd still another
thought he ought to be turned over

"What's your idea?" they asked
of the newcotner.
"I think," said he. "that he ought
to be made spend the remainder of
his life going In and out through the
new doors of the Harrisburg post
office." And If you've tried them on
a busy' day you'll understand.
lieve some of them who have re- j
turned from service and also clti- j
sens who have been active in war
work, should be consulted. Care-:
ful consideration in tho selection
of an appropriate memorial will re
sult In the erection of a monument
which will be worthy of a city suc>
as ours."
Other officials have approved the
proposed memorial also and agreed
that it should be a permanent one.
County officials said they will con
sult with Solicitor Philip S. Moyer
in the near future, to learn what
amount they might appropriate for
such a purpose. They, too, expressed
themselves as heartily in favor of
honoring the men who have given
their lives.
Residents of the city said that if
funds were not provided out of the
general revenues by council they
would form an organization and take
personal subscriptions to meet the
expense of a memorial.
Commissioners Present Big
BilLs For Returning With
Few Ballots
The State of Pennsylvania is con- ■
fronted with a delimit of at least'
$12,000 to-day as the result of send- 1
ing 12(1 election commissioners to ■
camps and stations to take the votes
of Pennsylvanians in Army, -Navy I
and Marine Corps service. The ex
pense statements filed by 113 of the j
commissioners aggregate $25,310.17.
The amount of money left from the I
appropriation of $25|000 made in j
1917 is about $12,500. The rest was
consumed in taking votes in 1916
and 1917. The Legislature will be
asked to make an appropriation to
meet the deficiency. !
A. J. Roggenberger, the first of the
commissioners to the Pacific coast to
report, brought five votes and his
bill at ten cents a mile is $744 to
San Diego and return. The Rev. Dr.
11. E. P. Prugh, Prohibition state
chairman, who went to Fort Leaven
worth, put in a bill for $234. Dr.
Prugh brought back 30 votes.
As the thirteen commissioners to
come include men sent to the Paci
fic coast the total bill may be $30,-
| 000 with only $12,000 in sight.
Some of the commissioners brought
no votes and the man who went to
[ Salt Lake brought back three votes
, and a bill for $450.
Desire of Men in Camps
to Get Home Breaking
Morale of U. S. Soldiers
By Associated Press
WnahinKlon, Nov. 15, Cessation of
hostilities in Europe and disappear
ance of the prospect of meeting the
enemy on the battlefield has brought
an immediate loss of morale among
American troops at home that is re
garded at the War Department as
somewhat alarming. It is understood
that -eps to deal with the situation

Upon news that the armistice had
been signed, the mental attitude of
the individual soldier is said to have
undergone a marked change. Instead
of bombarding his immediate su
periors with queries as to the probable
date of entraining for the seaboard,
'htf became anxious ns to the date of
his release from service.
More serious are reports by some
commanding officers that their men
are exhibiting a tendency to. view
themselves as already released from
the strict routine of the camps. It is
understood relatives of 'soldiers who
have absented themselves will be ask
ed to assist the authorities in having
them returned promptly to spare the
families the dis"race of having an
armed guard sent, and with a view
of mitigating the punishment of the

the fireside this Christmas. For the
well-known yellow and red candy

Because of the curtailed supply
of sugar, candy cleartoys, which form
a great nutionul institution during

Turkey Raffling and Punch
boards to Be Stopped
by Police
Mayor Keister declared to-day that
he will continue his crusade over the
holiday season this year against tur
key 'raffling," punch boards and all
similar gambling devices.
Last year at the Mayor's direction
the police department stopped much
gambling and games of chance at
which turkeys and foods were dis
posed of, and this year every effort
will be made to prevent such condi
"Every officer will be instructed
that he will be held accountable for
what happens in his district," the
Mayor said. "I am determined to
put un end to gambling, and there
will be no turkey 'raffling' permitted.
Punch boards and other devices
which usually appear during the
holidays, must go, and prosecution
will follow for any violations."
During the year a number of per
sons who had been charged with
having gambling devices on their
premises, were arrested and either
entered a plea of guilty or were
convicted in Criminal Court. Heavy
lines were Imposed for violation of
the law.
candies composes about 95 per cent,
of the' whole product, and so It Is
easy to see why their manufacture
will be curtailed this year. In for
mer yeurs this candy sold for as low
as ten cents a pound retail. The
price of the scanty supply to be put
on the market this season will be In
the neighborhood of forty cents, so
stated a candy manufacturcer of the
city to-duj\
Only about one per cent, of the
usual supply will be mude this year,
our informant told us, und it is un
likely If any will be manufactured
before December 20. Being a pro
duct which contains so much sugar,
it cannot be manufactured in com
binations with substitutes, as with
other condie3.

Big Increase in Allotment Is
Given For Households and
An appreciable increase in the
amount of sugar available for do
mestic and manufacturing purposes
to-day was reported by Donald Mc-
Cormick, Dauphin county food ad
ministrator Householders during
December may purchase four pounds
of sugar for each member of the
family. The increase allotment is due
to better shipping conditions follow
ing the cessation of hostilities.
All during the summer the sugar
allotment for families was but two
pounds per month per person. This
recently was increased to three
pounds. No guarantee is made as to
whether the new ruling will remain
in effect after December.
Announcement also was made that
the ban on the making of carbonated
"soft" drinks such as sold over soda
water bars had been lifted. This will
permit the manufacturers to go
back to their old outputs.
Bakers may purchase approxi
mately fifty per cent, more sugar for

Playcal Important Pari
The palace at Versailles has play
ed an important part in the histories
of France, Germany, Great Rritain
and the United States. In 1783 the
armistice preliminary to the treaty
i of peace between Great Britain and i
the United States was signed at Ver
sailles. Six years later the palace
was the scene of important events
in the French revolution. The Ger
man army besieging Paris had its
headquarters <n the town in 1870-71
and there the negotiations between
France and Germany were discussed.
After the peace Versailles was the
seat of the French National Assem
bly and for a few years thereafter
was the official capital of France.
