Beautiful Musical Production at Camp Hill
r tt™
" - - - • -■
On Saturday afternoon Mr. and
Mrs. C. O. Shaar gave some of the
Camp Hill folk a glimpse of their
cleverly arranges musical comedy at
a special matinee to the children.
The grown!\jis who were privileged to
be present pronounced the whole
program far beyond the usual ama
teur production, both in conception
and in beauty of effect. An interest
ing bit of light on the whole thing is
the fact that Mr. Shaar on hearing
the popular song. "Smiles," for the
first time, immediately saw the pos
sibilities of building a dainty bit of
comedy around it, with Miss Betty
Patterson as "Smiles," and "Before.
After and in the Meantime" is the
result. The program will be repeated
fits evening and to-morrow evening
in the High School Auditorium.
The entire program is charming
and graceful and the musical num
bers are exceptionally good. The
soldiers' quartet is particularly fine.
This quartet in one scene appear as
choir boys and "The Holy City" as
sung by Sergeant Roberts is in it
self worth the price of admission.
A noticeable feature is Miss Elea
nor Watts, the dainty litle ingenue
who captivates every masculine Heart
in the audience. Miss Armstrong
sings "The Projhecy," with most
dramatic effect, and is a typical
gypsy. Miss Mary Bell Corbett, who
has taken Mrs. Howard Sigler's part
at a moment's notice, Is admirable
as usual in both songs and acting and
Miss Virginia Shaar, as a great pink
rose, gives the "Danse des Petales" ;
with grace and perfection.
The program includes:
"Before. After and in the Mean
time." arranged and directed by Mr. I
and Mrs. C. O. Shaar; stage manager,
Charles Goodman; assistant stago
manager, Martin Bowman; business
manager, Herman Kiehl; secretary

President Issues Red
Cross Message to U. S.
\t asliiiigtoii. Dec. 9.—President
Wilson, in a proclamation made
public yesterday calls on every Am
erican to join the American Red
Cross during Christmas roll call w
eek, December 16 to 23, and thus
send forth to the whole liutnan fani
ly the Christ-mas greeting for which
it waits and for which it stands in
greatest needs. The proclamation,
prepared before the President depa
rted for Europe, follows:
"To the American people:
"One year ago twenty-two
million Americans, by enrolling
as members of the Red Cross
at Christmastime, sent to the
men who were lighting out but
tles overseas a stimulating mes
sage of cheer and good will.
They made it clear that our
people were of their own free
choice united with their gov
ernment in the determination
not only to wage war with the
instruments of destruction, but
also by every means in their
power to repay the ravages of
the invader and sustain and re
new the spirit of the army and
of the homes which they repre
sented. The friends of the Amer
ican Red Cross in Italy, Belgium
and France have told, and will
tell again, the story of how the
Red Cross workers restored
morale in the hospitals, in the
camps, and at the cantonments
and we ought to lie very proud
that we have been permitted to
he of service to those whose
sufferings and whose glory are
the heritage of humanity.
"Now, by God's grace, the
Red Cross Christmas message
of 1918 is a message of
good sized buck, and was shot Fri
day morning by Kasimar Posiga.

forward to a venison dinner to be
given something this month.

Dr. John Hoval Harris Gives
Result of Poll of Both
Philadelphia, Dec. 9.—While, the
opponents of the proposed prohibi
tion aiYKtidment to the Federal Con
stitution have, ever since the Novem
ber election, been confident. that
there will not be enough votes in the
Pennsylvania Legislature to ratify.it.
Dr. John Royal Harris, State Super
intendent of the Dry Federation of
Pennsylvania, in a statement Issued
yesterday, predicted the adoption of
the amendment by this state.
Dr. Harris claims 110 member? of
the House have been elected, who
w.\re pledged to ratification, and that
therg are twenty-three Senators who
are certain to vote fhe same way
and that more than the remaining
four required to reach the total of
twenty-six which is necessary to
adopt the amendment in the Senate,
will be secured from other Senators
whom he claims will in all probabil
ity support this measure.
f"A great many conflicting state
ments have been made," said Dr.
Harris, with regard to the complex
ion of the next Legislature, on the
subject of ratification. 1 have pur
posely waited until I could make a
careful analysis and certain investi
gations before publicly stating my
views on this important question. As
a result of the study I have been
making since the election, I am able
to say that it is my firm opinion that
ratification will carry. There can be
no doubt in my mind that this meas
ure will pass the Hoftse with a com
fortable majority. • There are 110
inemberfe whom I am sure will vote
to ratify. It is in the Senate that
the only possible doubt exists, and
there 1 feel very hopeful that the
result will be the same as in the
Governor-elect Sproul's firm atti
tude on this question cannot fail to
be the deciding influence in our fa
vor in the upper House. He made
this question one of the principal is
sues in his campaign and the Re
publican party by supporting him so
generously, supported his views on
"The Senate will contain forty-four
Republicans, many of whom were
the Governor's associates while he
sat in that body. We have heard
from several that they will be guid
ed very largely by his wishes in the
matter, and from his public an
nouncements before and after his
election, there can be no doubt that
his wishes are that ratification be
passed. Senator Sproui was the
party's platform in the recenj elec
tion and by his decisive majority he
became the leader of the Republi
cans in Pennsylvania. It is not think
able that the Senators of his party
will seek to discredit his leadership
by failing to follow his wishes on
William Schaeffer Says He
Took Machines Only
For a Ride
Three alleged thieves were arrest

ter for a preliminary hearing In po- .
lice court this afternoon, by City De- N
