1 selves to the good things spread
along the side of the ballroom. A
large number of members were
present to hear Mr. Chandler, who
1 in a forceful addrees, set for Har
[ risbuig's chances to sell its local
products into foreign markets.
Previous to his address Mr. Chan
j tiler commented upon the splendid
I civic pride which is responsible for
; the co-operation between Harrisburg
I and the state in the erection of pub
j lie improvements. He declared thai
the civic pride thus manifested wilt
; give Pennsylvania one of the finest
I settings for a state capital in the
I country, when the Memoriaj bridge
' and park extension projects are
Ijeft In Constantinople
Cpmmenting on the heroic work
of the former llarrisburger, Mr.
Chandler cited a letter received from
Abram I. Elkus:, former ambassa
dor to Turkey.
"Mr. Heck brought to the position
not only a complete knowledge of
the Turkish language." he said,
"and of the Turkish customs and or
the Turkish government, but a'so
a keen mind, ready to undertake
any of the problems which confront
ed us there. He consented at the
1 request of the government, despite
! the dangers of sickness and dis
ease. to remain In Constantinople
in charge of American affairs after
the embassy left Constantinople at
' the time of the severance of the re
lations between Turkey and the
; United States. He remained there
for many months, and owing to the
scarcity of food and other condl
! tions he lost his child. I know what
! a grief it was to Mrs. Heck and
himself, because their child was a
i beautiful and charming one, and
was dearly loved by nil of us. De
' spite _all this, Mr. Hcck renderod
: most able and efficient service to our
; government during this trying time.
I know that tho Stnto Department
thoroughly appreciates all he has
clone. This Is most conclusively
shown by h's recent appointment as
the Commissioner of the State De
partment to Constantinople, and Mr.
Heck has now returned to Constan
tinople to go on with the work
which he was doing during the war.
I know that his faml'Vand friends
in and about Harrisburg must be
proud of the work which he was
doing dnr'ng th war. Just as sure

fees to the cause of the war. Mr. I
TTeck and his wife m-de theirs in
the loss of their child."
Business Opportunities
Mr. Chandler's address was main- i
ly on the subject of Harrisburg's ,
opportunities to supply foreign trade i
"The future of tlie United States |
is going to tie hound tin more and j
more with the future of the world j

a very mistaken point of view, be
cause there can be no question but
that Germany will use every possible
effort to regain her former position
and not merely that, but also make
every possible endeavor to regain
her foreign trade. We recently had
nr. able address in Philadelphia
• from I*o j. Keena, the United States
j Consul General to Chile, who is one
j of our ablest consular officers and
! who pointed out to us, as far as
I South America was concerned, that
I German interest was not dead by
any means—the German banks had
I simply reinvested their money in
! p'antations. mines and other per-
I manent investments and when the

1 city of Buenos Aires, the largest
j city in South America, with popula

j in South America boast that they
i will get back this United States
j business after the war, I think we
I have a great many phases of our
) foreign trade situation to be ex-
J tremely watchful about."
Vital Factor
"We must also consider that for
eign trade is to-day a more vital
factor than ever in retailor lo our
own domestic commerce. In 1910
I our foreign trade equalled one
ninth of our total domestic trade, but
I by 1918 this percentage had risen so
.' that our foreign trade was between
i one-sixth and one-sevenih of our to
• tal domestic trade. The war has also
brought about another great change
in our export business, namely, that
j at the present time 67 per cent, of
j our exports are composed of manu
| faetured articles, the remainder be-
I ing partly manufactured goods and
• raw producta In 1915 manufactures
only formed 48 per cent, of our total
"The United States his at last es
caped from its condition of isolation,
and while we were developing our
country that was only to be expected.
We are now concerned with the af
fairs of the whole world. There are
factories hete in thi vety city cf
Harrisburg whose products arc cv -
ported to almost every civilized
country, and if we can say that the
sun never sets on Harrisburg ntanu
j factures, how much more true is that
i not the case with our country as a
whole, and particularly this great
; State of Pennsylvania, which Is not
merely the second largest Tbuie In I

; out whose products at least six other
states could not make any of the

abroad. It is indeed lirtunate that

parts of the world as the result of

would have to be oveieome.
Prosperity Fhr 20 Years
Mr. Chandler prophesied prosper
ity for the I nited States for the next
twenty years.
"I think the history of the United
States during the next twenty vears
will show a remarkable similarity to
VJ"* „ O< L England from 1615 to
1845. he said. "We will have work
enough for everybody, not merelv
because of our constantlv developing
resources and Industrie* and be
cause there is no eountrv in the
world such as the United Slates for
the constant adoption of any stand-

D. S. C. for unusual heroism and
devotion to duty at 'Death Valiey,'
southwest of St. Gillcs, night of Au
gust 20-21. During a barrage of
mustard gas and .ligh explosives
shells at "tioath Vulley," Private
Roy Thomas showed remarkable
heroism and devotion to duty in
dressing and assisting in the evacu
ation of wounded. When the men
had been dressed and placed in the
only shelter a ditch at the side of
the road, he hunted up and assisted
in loading the only ambulance sta
tioned near. He encouraged the
men by his presence until ordered
to his 'fox hole.' At 3 a. m. he re
quested to be allowed to relieve Pri
vate First Class George Wrenn who
was with the wounded and remain
ed with them until 5 a. m. when
ambulances were able to evacuate
the remainder of the injured men.
"For exceptional bravery during
an air raid on the One Hundred and
Twelfth Infantry and One Hundred
and Ninth Field Artillery stationed
near St. Gilles. night of September i
fi. 1918, Private Roy Thomas show
ed remarkable bravery and devotion '
to duty during the air raid, night of i
September 6. 191 S. When notified I
by runner that a number of men
had been injured, he hurried down
the steep cliff, in Itself a dangerous
proceeding, in the dark to the mart
gled men. Though the only light
was the unwelcome rays from the
searchlight of the planes above. He
worked rapidly and encouraged the
wounded by his presence and pro
fane denunciation of the enemy.
"For unusual heroism and devo

Forrest drive. During the entire
period he closely followed the com
panies, dressed wounded and super
intended their evacuation. On Sep
tember 29 while looking for a some
what protected spot for a dressing
station, he was for two hours in

"On October 2 he was cut off
from the company by a barrage, but
fearing there might be some men
who needed his attention, he entire
ly neglecting his own safety, hur
ried through the bursting shells and
joined the men of his command."
The citation for Private Wrenn is
similar, the only change being in
the name.
