Presence of Large Number of
Sailors Also Noted
in Streets
The presence of the targe number
of soldiers and sailors in Harrisburg
would be unprecedented under ordi
nary circumstances. Men In the serv
ice are to be found in the cars, in the
streets, in the stations, in the shops
und, in fact, anywhere one may go.
Many of these men have come homo
on furlough for the holidays, while
others arrived home in time for
Christmas after receiving their dis
charges from Army camps.
The presence of sailors is notice-

able, an unusually large number be
ing home at this time. One of those,
who Is home on furtough, lias told of
his experiences as a gunner on board
a United States transport during the
war. He Is Oscar D. Nickle, son of
Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Nickle, of 1105
Mayflower street. Gunner Nickle,
who is but 18 years old, has been in
the service of tire Navy for three
years and was formerly on the U_S. S.
Arkansas and Michigan. Tie has made
four trips between New York and
France in the past year on board the
transport Rappahannock, and tells
many a thrilling tale of meeting with
"We sailed from Brest coming over
this last time," said Gunner Nickle
to-day, "and met the President's ship
about 1,500 miles out. The weather
was so heavy at the time that we
were able to make only four knots."
When asked about his experiences
on board the transport, Mr. Nickle
said: "The only thrilling experience
I could tell was when we made our
third trip last July. Although we
oftt.i spotted things which were
taken to be subs and tired at them,
this was the only time I had the sat
isfaction of knowing it was the gen
uine thing, and we put it out of
"We were about 600 miles off the
coast of France," continued Mr.
Nickle. "There weTe altogether six
teen transports, a cruiser and two de
stroyers. We had not yet met our
convoy. The sub was sighted on our
port bow. The signal was given on
nil the transports to man the guns,
but the Rappahannock was .the only
one which flred. The range on the
sub was about 2,800 yards. Half a
shots did the trick, and in a
few minutes a destroyer was search- 1
ing for signs of life whore the sub!
had formerly been. We were certain
It was a sure hit, but the excitement
was intense for a while, because we
had only the two destroyers with us."
Mr. Nickle is a first-class gun point
er with the rank of coxswain. He told
some interesting general information
of what happened on board a trans
port when a sub Is sighted. "All sus
picious-looking objects sighted from
1 the foremast are reported to the
bridge. If the captain or commanding
officers considers it too suspicious aft
er looking it over through his glasses,
the order is given to fire. The range
is given by a mam located in the
crowsnest, but it generally takes two
or three # experimental shots to find
the true "range. The presence of subs!
was always made known by whistle I
signals, which gave the information]
to all the ships. We generally sight-i
ed the subs about daybreak."
Gunner Nickle also has a brother |
and a brother-in-law in the service. I
Roth belong to the same company and |
have gone "over the top" three times!
in the same engagemnts. Corporal ]
I.onmis O. Nickle is the brother and
Sergeant John R. McNeil is the broth
er-in-law. Both are members of
Company C. Three Hundred and Six
teenth Infantry, and both reside In
this city.

W—each year for es

game preserves and general hunt
ing. Under the present law the
commission can only use such tracts
of state forest reserves as are turn
ed over for game purposes or lease
lands. The idea of commissioners
is to have a game preserve in each
county and if lands can be bought
the project will be expedited.
In addition to establishing game
preserves there would be tracts sur
rounding the closed area where
hunting could be permitted and the
lands would belong to the common
wealth und be open to shooting dur
ing seasons.

Must He Violence. The State*

award compensation where it is
found that a man died of apoplexy
or from rupture of a blood vessel in
the brain while at work. This de
cision, given in the claim of Smith

that violence was not done to the
body by the accident, but that the
death was due to organic weakness.
