No Decision on
Hypothetical Points
The Attorney General's Depart
ment will not render an opinion on
"a t hypothetical proposition," such
as whether trustees of a state hos
pital would be liable, individually
or collectively, for damages In the
event than any. person was killed
or injured by the hospital ambu
lance or in case bills were incurred
when there is no state appropriation
nfade to pay them, according to a
decision given to-day by Deputy At
torney General Hargest to otllcers of
the ficranton State Hospital. He
says they are speculative questions
and that the department will ren
der opinions upon consideration of
the facts when certain situations
arise. .The trustees are informed
that they may place insurance upon
the hospital's motor ambulance
against theft, but that the state in
surance fund covers the Are hazard
and that liability insurance inay also
be taken out.
State 1-kealth Department authori
ties to-day said that investigations
were being made into the situations
in a number of communities in east
ern counties where recurrences of
influenza had been reported. No
serious outbreaks have been re
ported this week, it was stated.
The Public Service .Commission
to-day made an order for the Pitts
burgh Railways Company, to pre
pare all of its cars for Immediate
service except summer cars. This is
the result of prolonged investiga-1

By Associated Press
Washington, Dec. 13.—The German
| government on JJuJly 10, 1914, in
j formed about 130 German civilian em
' ployes at a conference in Berlin that
a world war would be started soon,
i Captain G. B. Hester, of the Army in
: telligence service, testified to-day be
| fore the Senate committee investigat
■ Ing Gynan and brewers' propaganda.
| These employes then were dis
patched to all parts of the world, thir
ty-one coming to the United States, to
stimulate pan-German propaganda,
: Captain Hester declared. He said his
Information came from an unnamed
informant, now interned in this coun-!
The Germa propagandists landed In I
1 the United States in August, 1914, on
lhe*same boat with Dr. H. P. Albert,
known as the paymaster of the enemy
propaganda system in this country,
and immediately formed the nucleus j
for German propaganda.
These propagandists were chosen
by the German government. Captain
Hester testified, because of their
knowledge of foreign languages, their
ability to write and their knowledge
of legal and public matters In gen
The Army officer explained that he
did not feel justified In giving the
name of his informant on grdund
that this man might wish to return to
Germany after being released from
Pan-German propaganda was start
ed by Germany in 1894 as a means nfj
carrying German ideas to every coun
try in the' world. Captain Hester told
the committee. This propaganda, .he
said, was to he carried to South and
Central America. Japan and China and
to the United States.

The Campaign For Volunteer

The Red Cross volunteer campaign
for meipbers, which began yester
day morning, ends to-night at 8
o'clock; and while the volunteer
push Is In its last hours the several
thousand workers who will take part
In the big drive for members next

what they call the queen's taste—
the men's teams which have been
canvassing HfPrrlsburg tot war wo'rh
While men will tuke some little
part In next week's Red Cross mem
j bershlp campaign, tho real work
will be done by the women of Har
risburg and the balance of the dis

I them on the Job in Harrisburg alone.
| In addition, several thousands will
canvass the balance of Dauphin

L. Culmerry, Mrs. C. H. Hunter and

Women to Do Duty
"The women of' Harrisburg next
week will make an effort to surpass
the results attained in any previous
war work campaign conducted In
"It Is tho last campaign of 1918
—and It will be the best. The Red
Cross is Harrisburg's favorite war
work organization. None need to be
told of the work it has done and is
doing.- For that reason there need
be no time lost in explaining the ob
ject of the campaign. We want
memberships—not money. We be
lieve Harrisburg alone should fur
nish 50.000 or 60,000 memberships.
We ask the people of this city to
be ready for the solicitors when they
begin their rounds on Monday. We
ask the hundreds of workers who
will participate in the drive to leave
nothing undone in their effort to
surpass what has been done by
men's teams in the last eighteen
months. The women of Harrisburg
are going to set a mark next week
wliich will be hard to equal tnTtfe
Mrs. Lyman D. Gilbert, of Har
risburg Red Cross chapter, to*jtay
called attention to the fact that
Red Cross membership solicitors
next week must wear the official
arm brassard; und that without this
arm brassard In evidence, solicitors
lay themselves open to the suspi
cion that they are impostors.
