Millersburg, Pa.. Nov. IS.—When,
the working solicitors in. the United
War Work drive made their re
port to Chairman H. W.. Bowman
on Saturday, it was found that Mil
lersburg had, as in all the other
war work drives, more than made
good. Millersburg's quota in this
drive was $3,000. Collections to
Saturday evening amounted to
$3,766.90, and, with money still
coming in the total amount will be
near the SI,OOO mark.
Millersburg has made another
record of which she is proud. Last
week Postmaster c. W nubendnll
received an honor flag from Wash
ington, denoting that Millersburg
hud gone over the top In the sale
of War Saving Stamps and Thrift
Stamps. The sales at the Millers
burg postoffice now total over
$55,000. Millersburg is the only town

in the state that has gone over the
top in the sale of the little bonds.

Home lu a Cult
This would permit the sending
home to llarrisburg as a unit the
Harrlsburg men who marehed away
to the war In the Governor's Troop,
Companies 1> and I and the smaller
orgs nidations.
Plans for a similar demobilization
of the 79th division also are being
considered. Philadelphia. Baltimore
and Washington huve put in claims
for a parade of this crack organiza
tion which trained at Camp Meade
and is composed of National Army
men from Eastern Pennsylvania,
Maryland and the District of Co
lumbia. Dauphin county men large
ly make up the 316t1i Infantry in
this division. It was this regiment
that a returned Phtladelphiu officer
described as having men who
'fought and died like heroes."
Plan Big Pageant
The suggestion made by Mayor
Keisler that Harrlsburg wait until
its men get home to celebrate peace
in formal fashion has gained many
supporters when it was learned that
in all probability the soldiers can
get home in a body for a parade that
it is generally conceded ought to be
the greatest pageant the city has
ever known.
Definite arrangements for the pa
rade cannot he made, it was pointed
out, until it is learned at what time
the hundreds of men in other divi
sions will have returned. It is prob
able. however, that the 3,000 men
of Dauphin county will want to join
with those of Harrisburg in the pa
geatit. It is generally believed that
most of the youths serving with the
Navy will be home by the time the
soldiers return s# that every branch
of the service may be represented.
General March in discussing the
situation said:
"In handling this problem of de
mobilization, one of the features
which had to be considered was the
subsequent retaining of men for the
Regular Army, or what will be the
Regular Army, when Congress pass
es laws reorganizing that Army.
When the war broke out there were
only a limited number of such men
In the service, and the great num
ber of men who filled out these units
were men who voluntarily enlisted
for the period of the war. So we
have offered these men who came in
for the period of the war the option
I of re-enlisting if they care to.
"We have offered an immediate
honorable discharge with a furlough
of one month upon re-enlistment and
we propose to ask Congess to give
every single man who has been hon
| orably discharged one month's pay,
whatever his grade is, as a bonus.
I Every man who is discharged from
the Army is entitled to wear his uni
form for a period of three months.
; that is a very necessary thing, be
cause the releasing to civil life of
three or four million men makes it
! impossible to clothe in civilian
! clothes so great a number.
"As men are discharged, we take
iup tlie question of the officers. Of
i iicers who want to apply for com
missions in the Regular Army will
! be considered; officers who want to
put themselves in a class where
I they can bo used for further mili
i tary operations, will be offered coin
! missions in the reserve corps. The
rest of them will be. discharged.
"1 have cabled General Pershing
1 to return to the United States on
! troop transports all the men who
i are casuals or convalescents, sick
j and wounded who are able to be
moved: and these men will come in
a steady flow across the Atlantic be
j fore the larger number come back
I as units-."

Samuel Koplovitz Again

Word came this morning from

made to learn particulars. Sam has |

The victorious Allies will not con- j

of her own national' debt, since this
is largely internal. Comparatively
small amounts of German war bonds

Germany in the past do not believe
the government will repudiate the

think that taxes will be made so
