MRS. AGNES SCARLETT
From the Italian slilp Guiseppi
Verdi traversing the Atlantic ocean
comes a letter of unusual Interest to
many Harrisburgers who ar e friends
of the writer, Mrs. Agnes R. Scar
lett, a former secretary of the State
Industrial Board, who sailed some
tim e ago with a Red Cross unit.
The girls in her unit are just as
willing and ready to aid now that
the war lias ceased as they were
when they applied to go over. Un
like many people safe at home who
think their duty to the Red Cross
and our boys has ended with the
lighting.
Of the pleasant voyage she says:
"Everything has been ,moA delight
ful, just as if made to order, Weath
er, sea, food and service. Of course
we haye a common cause and this
makes everybody friends. Really I j
am much surprised and disappoint
ed in the Grand Atlantic. 1 never
thought it could be so smooth. This
Is our ninth day out and the ocean
has been calm as a lake most of the
time. Sunday was the only day that
was bad at all, then it blew a great
gale and It was hard woPk keeping
your feet on the Hobr."
She tells of an interesting inci
dent on Thanksgiving Day: "This is
a strictly Italian boat all of the crew
speak Italian.
Thanksgiving On Ocean
"Thanksgiving we made glad all
day. The day of itself was ideal and
everyone was up to see the sunrise.
At 11 o'clock we had praise service
and at four song service on the deck.
We had a delicious dinner, turkey,
cranberry sauce and genuine Ice
cream. Th e cuptain came into the
dining room waving a beautifOl
American ilag and this started an
uproar. He speaks very little Eng
lish but his face is wonderfully ex
pressive. He is a life member of the
Italian Red Cross and after our song
service a collection was taken up
and presented to him for the Red
Cross. He was so fussed he forgot
all the English he did know and said,
'Oh! We Italians love the United
Amerlcans.'-
"In the afternoon he prepared a
not e of thanks and had one of the
other men read It for him, truly it
was puthetic, he must have sweat i
blood while he composed It, but his
thoughts were beautiful."
Of the passengers she says: "Thare
are JSO girls in this Red Cross unit,
I cahnot guess how many other tirst
and second class passengers, but I
do know there are about 1,900
steerage—once in a while they get
real boisterous."
November 29, the ship was to stop
at Gibralter for a few days and a few

before landing in Genoa, Italy.

Salvation Army Dinger
Fund Only Half Raised
Despite the fact that the total of j
contributions for the Salvation Army i
Christmas dinner has climbed slowly
to a total of only 8500, Captain Myers I
Neilsen, officer in charge of the local j
branch is confident that the other
half of the required SI,OOO will be con
tributed before to-morrow night. The |
generosity of Harrlsburg In past I
years, he says, is his criterion in
making this estimate.
The total given above is apptroxl-1
mate up to noon to-day. Of .this ;
amount much was contributed in j
checks, although the pots in the street
corners netted substantial amounts.
The total in the pots Saturday night
was a little more than SBB.
Ten boys In a Bible elass at tliS
Green Street Church of God yesterday
contributed $6.50 to the fund. This
amount was raised by the boys who
carried baskets at market Saturday.
The congregation sent-$6 s with the
boys, making a total contribution of
$12.50. Stevens Memorial Methodist
Church sent a big pile of fruit and
foodstuffs from x yesterday's thank
offering, and othe\churches are com
ing in with their contributions.
Gifts of money and other articles.
Including toys and hooks, should be
sent to Captain Myers Neilsen, 456
Verbeke street.

Milk Prices in Stores
Reduced Cent a Quart
By permission of the Dauphin
County Food Administration, milk
.dealers, beginning to-day, are allow
>d to sell milk to grocers and other
I retail dealers for twelve cents a
\ quart, a reduction of one cent. This
will ennble the grocers to sell to re
tall tc#de for fourteen cents,
j The Food Administration, consid
ering that the grocers handle milk
I for accommodation only, urged the
'dairymen to sell to them at the snme
rate as Its householders, at thirteen
. coats n 'quart and seven cents a
I pint. Grocers, however, considered
;the deal unfair, and" some dealers cx
i pressed their dtsire to take care of
their wholesale trade by making at
least a slight price concession. Un
der the old ruling, grocers had to sell
their milk for fifteen cents a quart,
or else at a sacrifice, inorder to com
pete with the dairymen, who sold
milk off their wagons at the whole
-1 sale price of thirteen cents charged
the grocers.
All federtH control of milk has
been lifted, according to an an
[nounccment'of the Food Admlnistra
: tion at Washington 10-day. Local
'dealers, however, are working in
agreement with, the local food ad
ministration rather than under its
orders, so that the price arrange
ments likely will continue In effect
for home time.
Donald McCormick, Food Admin
istrator for Dauphin county, has said
that he anticipates no immediate
change in milk prices unless the
price of dairy grain feed advances.

APPOINTMENT?
TOBESCANNED
List Now Made Up For
Submission to the Senate
When It Assembles
Records of the Department of
the Secretary of the Commonwealth |
are now being gone over to make up ,
the biennial list of recess or "set in- |
terlm" appointments made by the
Governor 'since the last session of
the State Senate? which under the
constitution Miust be submitted to
the next Senate for approval. The
list* of Brumbaugh appointments
since the Senate of 1917 concluded
Its work Will be long and interest
ing, and already there is much spec
ulation about the Capitol as to how
many of the ntcn numed to. olllcc
will be found here after the next
session udjourns. The list will in
clude not only the officials whose re
appointment after the Senate had re
jected them led to the mandamus
proceeding which went to the su
preme court, but all members of
commissions and boards and _no
turle* public as well as magistrfites
of certain kinds. It lias Involved
considerable searching of records. |
When finished it will be printed.
When it reaches the Senate It will
be laid over until after Governor
elect William S. Sproul Is Inaugu
rated. ,
In accordance with the precedent
established by Governor Martin C.
Brumbaugh ut the start of the
slon of 1915, who withdrew all ap
pointments made by his predecessor,
and not confirmed by the Senate, it
is probable that the incoming Gov
ernor will withdraw all Brumbaugh
appointments, and such as are ap
proved will be luter sent to the up
per brunch of the Legislature for ap
proval. As the new Governor hus
been long a Senator It Is not ex
pected that there will be much dif
ference over appointments, and as
soon as the Brumbaugh list ar
rives it will be laid upon the table.
That some of the appointees to
bourds und various state places will
not be returned after being once
withdrawn Is a foregone conclusion.
Northcliffe Urges
Britain and U. S. to
Back WArld League
Farts, Dec. 23.—Viscount North
clifTo, the British journalist-dynamo,
regarded as the "maker" of the Lloyd
George coalition government, called
In the hundred-odd American corres
pondents now In Paris for a reception
at the Rltz and had a frank heart-to
'jitart talk with them. In which he
touched earnestly upon some of the
great issues of war and-peace.
In a candid, forceful way the Brit
ish publisher drove home his convic
tion on two chief points:
That a league of nations Is Indis
pensable to future peace.
That the firmest keystone for the
foundation of such a league would be
the closest association and co-opera
tion of Great Britain and America.
854 German Planes
Fell to Yank Fliers;
Our Losses Only^27l
Washington.*' Dec. 23—American
airmen in France brought down a
total of 854 German airplanes and
eighty-two German balloons, against
an American loss of 271 planes and
forty-five balloons, according tp re
port cabled by Major General Har
bord, on December 1,5. and made pub
lic to-day by the War Department.
Destruction of 354 of the enemy
planes and fifty-seven of the bal
loons had been officially confirmed.
The total casualties of the Ameri
cn air service in action are given as
442, Including 109 killed, 103 wound
ed, 200 missing, 27 prisoners and 3 in
terned.
General Pershing,
Unannounced, Visits
Armies in Rhineland
American Army of Occupation,
Dec. 23.—General John J. Pershing
made his first visit to the Rhineland.
He arrived in a private car which
was parked at th edge of a town. It
is doubtful if one per cent, of the In
habitants of the place knew that the
commander-in-chief of the American
forces was in their midst.
With the exception of General
Dickman, commander of the army of
occupatio/, not even the officers at
the headquarters of the Third Arnvy
were aware of General Pershing's
presence.

Congrefisionul Committee He
ports Bill to Make Survey

A eiavlguble Susquehanna river is
now much nearer, ua a result of the
favorable reporting out of the bill of
Congressman William Orlest, of
