personal experiences as a commis
sioner for the Red Cross on the
Caucasus front, and a number of
other important features will make
tho meeting properly the greatest
war gathering held in Harrisburg,
Red Cross workers say.
Mr. Beury's tale is a story of 46,-
000 miles of travel, investigating
conditions in Armenia, Russia and
Roumania. He will give tirst-hand j
experiences, telling of the awful con-1
ditions in those war-stricken coun- ,
, tries and how they were relieved by
Red Cross workers.

film, opens with a scene on the bat- !
tlefleld of Solferino. Quickly bridg- !

of a young man, called to the front |
and how he was cared for by the.

Harrisburg and Dauphin county a
picture of home war activities, will!

No appeal for funds will be made.
There is no charge for admission and t
no tickets are required. The meet- i
Ing will open at 8 o'clock to-night i

High School Auditorium.
Mo Road Contracts
Before January 1
The state of Pennsylvania will un- [
lertake no new road contracts before <
the first of the year, according to
State Highway Commissioner J.;
Denny O'Neil. The national govern
ment has raised the restriction on j
rarious construction work.
Mr. O'Neil says: "Numerous tele- |
Si ams and letters have been received i
Juring the past few days, requesting I
that contracts be awarded for the im
provement of roads, for which per- \
mits had been withheld by the Na
tional Highways Council, and that I
jertain proposed roads that were held
jp by the Washington authorities, be
advertised for immediate construe- I
After careful study, the Commis-1
sioner states that in his opinion—ow
ing to the lateness of the season and
the fact that it is Impossible to do
road work during the winter months'
—he does not feel justified in making)
any awards or in advertising for pro
posals at this time, for it is thought j
that by spring much better conditions
1 ill obtain and prices will be much j
bore favorable.
"The State Highway Department |
las worked out a definite system of
leads for the various counties of the !
. itate," Mr. O'Neil says, "which even
tually will work into a state system,
ind the roads that were advertised
ind those under consideration are al!
I part of this proposed system and
Jhese, no doubt, will he the first to re
reive the consideration of the State
Highway Department when work is
resumed." ,

r Washington Believes Defeat
of Soviet Opens Way For
Important Aid
Washington, Nov. 21.—Overthrown
r of the Bolshevik regime In the Uk
j ralne and the capture of Kiev by Cos
j ; sack troops friendly to the all-Rus
, | slan government, as reported from
s Copenhagen, opens the way, in the
. ! opinion ttf officials here, for import
, ! ant developments in Russia,
i While no change in policy, either
. I political or military, has been made
i by the United States, it is realized
. j here that the holding of the Ukraine
5 ; by forces friendly to the associated
' governments and decidely hostile to
I the Bolshevik! opens a path directly
. j into the heart of Russia either for
- 1 the dispatch of troops or of supplies
1 | for the relief of the demoralized ctv
, Ulan population.
British May Send Troops
J ! Recent reports from London have
j been taken by some observers here
. j to indicate that Great Britain may
' J propose the sending of additional
troops into Russia to place the coun
| try on a stable footing and eliminate
' the Bolshevihi. It was said yester
' | day, however, that no definite word
as to this has been received here,
I The Bolshevik fighting strength is
j considered as now practically con
centrated against the Allied and
'j Russian troops operating south from
j Archangel. The unusual lateness of
the winter In that region- has aided
the Bolshevists as in the ice-free
t streams they have been able to tfti
l lize armed river boats against the
Allied and United States .forces.
Though compelled to operate almost
altogether on land, the troops of the
associated government have been
! able to withstand all attacks.
CosMnckn Hold Ukraine
i With the Cossacks holding the Uk
! raine; with the military and political
I forces of the Omsk government work
! ing west, and with the American
j and Allied forces pushing south, some
officials consider that the position
of. the disturbers of Russian peace
| has become serious. However, no im
mediate collapse of the Bolshevik
; regime is believed imminent.

For Burning Eczema
Greasy salves and ointments should
not be applied if good clear akin is
