Steelton News
12,000 SHORT
In Quota of 20,000, Steelton's
Population, 8,023 Thus
Far Enrolled
Unless something big happens to
change the hearts ot many of tlio resi
dents of Steelton, the borough will
fall down most miserably In the Rod
Cross Christmas rollcall. With the
most splendid record of war work,
dene in the borougli prior to this, it
will be little short of a disgrace to
the town if the final reports show
that less than fifty per cent, of the,
quota has been secured. The quota Is
the population. The population in
round figures is 20,000. The number
enrolled thus far is 8,000. What is the
trouble with the other 12,000? To all
appearances it Is the heart that is
lacking and not the' dollffv. If there
be any who have the heart and lack
the dollar, some one will be found to
supply the dollar. The heart is more
difficult to secure.
The proposition was made last week
to make public the names of those
who do not join. In all probability
it would be a better plan to make pub
lic the names of those who do join;
■ the others will be among the 12,000.

1 giving up baseball," said Hughcy
Jennings, of this Detroit man
-1 agcr, when his attention was called
to th e announcement made by the

Thurston, the famous magician, will
be ut the Orpheum beginning to-night.
with matinees to-
Thurston. morrow and Christ
the Magician mas. As an enter
tainer Thurston has
become a national institution. It has
always been his custom to present
new mysteries each year which is,
perhaps, his chief claim to popularity.
It is said that his performance for
this season will be ulong lines new
to the amusement world, and will be
un exhibition which is mystifying in
the extreme. Some of his most elabor
ate presentations are labeled "Ghosts;
or, Do the Spirits Return?" "Gravita
tion Defied," "The Miracle," "Every
Woman's Wish," "Spirit Paintings,"
"The Vampire," and "An Invisible
Flight." One has to keep his eyes
and his attention fixed In order to fol
low the different mysteries, they are
so sudden and so astonishing. The
Thurston idea makes for good in the
sense that it contributes materially
and sensibly to the Joy of loving; and
it is doubly prized in that this holds
good for the grownups as well as the
little folk.
A "chummy musical revue," "Odds
and Ends of 1918," will be seen at the
Orpheum next Frday and
I "4)<ldn Saturday, with daily
and Ends matinees. Unlike many
of 11)18" musical revnues, this of
fering of Gus Tiill's does
not particularize on revuing or trav
esting metropolitan hits, but lather
alms to place before its auditors cari
catures of current events and epi
sodes, so that to get complete! enjoy
ment from the performance one does
not have to be familiar with New
York's previous dramatic or musical
comedy successes.
"Odds and Ends of 1918" is present
ed in two acts, showing sixteen dif
ferent scenes. The booltf is by Hide
Dudley and James Godfrey, and these
two also assisted in writing the lyrics
and music which is. principally bv

songs are credited to Weston and Lee,
and the production is staged under the
personal direction of Julian Alford.

aggregation of talented entertainers I
in song, comedy and dancing. The

full of bright, snap>py comedy, and
these two know how to put it over

Highwayman Is Chased Over
Washington Heights
by Carmen
No clu e has been discovered to J
lead to the arrest of the masked J
robber who Saturday night boarded |
a Camp Hill car at Earllngton, held i
up the conductor and motorman, |
took more than SIOO from tlio form- j
er, and later boarded another Camp i
11111 car and came to the west end |
of the Walnut street bridge where
at the point of a revolver he ordered
the conductor of the car to let him
out, while he made his escape over
the Nothcrn Central railroad tracks
and into tho woods.
It Is said a youth answering to the
conductor's description of the high
wayman, is employed by a West
Shore contractor as a driver.
The conductor of the Camp Hill
car, C. H. Graham, and the motor
man, H. E. Hess, were at Earllng
ton, just beyond Camp Hill, ready I
to resume their run to Harrisburg. j
As they started toward their places
at the front and rear of the car, a
youth entered with drawn revolver,
nnd demanded their money. The con. .
duetor handed over more than SIOO,
including his pay Which he had just '
received, and the company's money.
Tho highwayman then boarded an
other returning Camp Ilill car. The I
motorman and conductor were noti- j
fled of the identity of their pnssen- I
ger by a loud outcry from Hess nnd
Graham, but did not interfere with
hint until the reached tho bridge,
ready to enter Harrisburg. There,
at the point of a revolver, he forced
.the conductor to let him out of the
car. As li e broke away across the
hill, one of a number of street car
employes secured a revolver from
a soldier, and started in pursuit,
while a running fire took place as I
the man fled over the hill. The
highwayman, however, outdistanc
ed his pursuers. i
