stance of what is being done in cen
tral Pennsylvania is found in Cum

opening of thfc. campaign is still a

the State, but the United States."
Chairman William Jennings of the
Dauphin county committee was of

for the citv district, said that the
showing the city will make will be

Wilson Critic Flays
President, and League
of Nations Covenant
By Associated hr
London. April 14.—The summary of
the amended covenant or the League
of Nations evokes no enthusias.m in
the London morning newspapers, and
some commentators declare it to be.
less satisfactory than the first.
The Post, which Is an opponent of
the League and a sever' critic of
President Wilson, refers ironically
to the "new Garden of Eden" in
which "the Monroe Dostrine will take
the place of the tree of good and
evil." Referring to the
"fruits of the Westsrn Hemisphere
being forever forbidden to -ignaUries
of the league."
Attributing to President Wilson
personally the features of tne draft
to which it most objects, the news
papers say that "posterity will place
him with the Metternich and Castle
reagh as one who worked for the con
fusion of other nations and the great
ness of his own."
It concludes by de-laring it mon
strous that such a covenant could be
signed without being first fairly con
sidered by the jyublic and parliament.

Applications For Plots Pour
ing Into Offices of Cham

Tile Harrisburg Chamber of Com
merce public gardens will be ready
for the gardners by the end of this
week, according to the announce
ment made by Shirley B. Watts, su
perintendent of gardening activities,
this morning. Numerous prospective
gaideners arc making application for
garden plots at the Harrisburg
Chamber of Commerce daily.
The plots at Nineteenth and Pax
ton streets, and at Itollevue, will be
available by Thursday, and at Hoff
man's Wood, the preliminary work
will be finished by Saturday, Mr.
AVatts said, so that the end of the
week will find numerous A'ictory
Gardeners busy tilling the soil. Mr.
Watts is busy finishing up the work
of ploughing and superintending.
The garden plots are leased, rent
free, to the gardeners, whose only
expense for the use of the plots is
$1.50 to cover the cost of plowing
and fertilizing. Mr. Watt's services
and advise will be free to thCgarden
Mr. Watts said that the prospects
for a banner year in the production
of provender by A'ictory gardeners
are unusually bright. Numerous in
quiries already have been made by
persons who cultivated garden plots
last year and found the experiment
profitable. More than $.10,000 worth
of produce were raised on the public
garden tracts last year, and the agri
cultural committee expects to dupli
cate the record this year.
"Herbert Hoover, food administra
tor, has said that it is essential to
cultivate A'ictory Gardens," said Don
ald McCormick. formerly food ad
ministrator of Dauphin county and
chairman of the agricultural com
mittee, "and T hope to see every
garden plot in the three tracts under
cultivation again this year. Applica
tion should be made at the Chamber
of Commerce offices, and the plots
will be assigned this week.
Mrs. Edward Anderson, of New
Market, died in the Harrisburg Hos
pital Saturday night from pneumo
nia. She was aged 40 years. Her
husband is now serving in the postal
service in the American Expedition
ary Forces somewhere in France.
He was a member of the Governor's
Troop before the war.
The body was taken to the home
of her parents in Carlisle. Funeral
arrangements will be announced

Health, said to-day in speaking of
the meeting this evening which is
planned to unify city organizations

Paris. April 14.—The status of the
j American, .Japanese nnd French
! amendments to the covenant of the
| League of Nations has been definite
' ly established so far as the League
; of Nations commission is concerned,
• with the American amendment con
! eerning the Monroe Doctrine the
! only one to be given a place in the

| The French and Japanese, how

j which entitle them to renew, at it

\ these amendments, so that tHe filial
j decision is still open.
! As to the affairs of the Peace Con

! virtually disposed of, so that the date

j are admitted, will according to the
i present understanding occur be
! twoen April 26 and May 5 and it is
j considered not improbable that a
i definite date may be announced by
: Premier Lloyd George when he
; speaks before the British House of
j Commons this coming Wednesday.
Wilson Is to Remain
I Indications are that the Germans
!wiU be given opportunity to discuss
the peace terms before the Congress,
but that no extended discussion will
| be permitted, two weeks being sug
gested us the outside limit for the
i sessions to be lield at Versailles,
j These sessions, it is expected now,
I will be attended by President Wil
| son, who is said by those close to
| hint to feel that the progress made
i toward concluding the peace is such
j that he will be nble to remain for
| the Versailles meeting.
Rliinc Frontier to Come Up
j The chief question as regards the
' peace terms remaining to be settled
now that the Sarru Valley and repa
• rations problems have been dis
posed of in virtually all of their
! details, is that of the Rhine fron
| tier. The Council of Four is likely
| mainly to occupy itself with this
j question during the present week,
ithe debate probably centering upon
| from a military standpoint, tbe
I tbe French contention for security
i French attitude being indicated as a
: determined one on this point.
It is understood also to have been"
: largely France's fears from a mill
i tary standpoint of what might hap
j pen should there be another German
I attack that influenced her repre
; sentatives in their sustained opposi
| tion to the Monroe Doctrine aniend
| ment to the League of Nations cove
' nant. Their argument was that if
i the Monroe Doctrine principle were
[ given a European application the ef

i might be kept again coming to the
| help of France in the event of a fu-
Iture German ebullition.

Germany Must Pay Five Billion Dollars
or Equivalent By May 1, 1921, to Allies
By Associated I'rcss
I'aris, April 14, —Germany, under the peace treaty, must pay
$5,000,000,000 in cash, or the equivalent in commodities, by May 1.
1921. She .must also issue immediately to the Allied and associated
governments $20,000,000,000 of interest-bearing bonds.
The interest on the bonds until 1926 will lie cither two pr three
per cent., according to the present plan. The bonds will" fie payable
in instalments during a period of fifteen years. They will probably
be kept in the control of a central commission of the Allied and
associated governments so that they shall not lie marketed in quan
tities sufficient to break the price.
Germany must also obligate herself to pay other amounts for
damages done, appropriate to her moans, to tie determined by a
mixed commission of representatives ol' the Allied and associated
governments and of Germany, which shall report before May 1, 1921.

The Jew Ist Feast of Passover falls !
fulls on the 15th day or Xisan, corre- |
i sponding this year with Tuesday, i
j April 15. The celebration begins this j
j evening with sundown. The manner |
: of its observance was determined
■ largely by the Biblical ordinances |
j concerning this feast. It is to be ob- .
I served fora period of seven dnjs. ;
! Those who cherish customs that ;
; originated after Bible times will
keep the feast eight days.
The ceremonials are such as are !
calculated to bring home the his- ]
: torical event which the feast com- ;
! memorates, namely the new-born :
! freedom vouchsafed to Israel after ;
; the long period of oppression en- ;
j dured under Egyptian tyranny. Tlte
J eating of unleavened bread is en
j joined a number of times in the !
; Biblical regulations touching the oh- '
servunce of the Passover feast. Un
| leavened bread is characterised as
i the "bread of affliction," and is also
i referred to in the Bible as the bread
1 S that was unleavened becuttsc of the j
| enforced hasty departure from
Egypt. In post-biblical times the;
earnest desire to keep the injunc- 1
i t'ons most scrupulously led the !
I teachers of Israel to enact laws, '
such as the use of special dishes ;
j that had been guarded from contact t
i with leaven and reserved only for '<
\ the Passover season.
■| A charming and effective feature
i in the celebration of the feast is the '
I special Seder service around the !
■festive family . hoard on the llrst ]
• evening of the feast, to which the '
| Orthodox add a second evening. At j
i this family service a special ritual
known as the "tlaggadah" is read. !
• - Th's ritual contains Die story of tlic |
I redemption from servitude, certain
! reflections inspired by the memories '
;of old and certain psalms. This is j
. followed by the festal meal after .
! which Grace is recited. The serv- !
i ice, concludes with the reading of j
I additional psalms, the recitation of j
j prayers and the singing of time- I
j honored hymns. To this home serv
! ice stranger and homeless are cor- I
I dially invited, tin the table in front j
I of him who presides over the meal
; are placed objects reminiscent of the .
| ancient .service and servitude, such |
! as bitter herbs, reminder of the bit- '
j ter lot of those who toiled in Egypt; j
: a roast bone, calling to mind the an- '
! cient paschal lamb; a roasted egg. '
| memorial of the free will offering I
; that was brought in addition to the I
j paschal lamb; parsley and the howl !
j of salt water, symbolizing the hyssop
i and its use in the lirst Passover oh
t served in Egypt, and a confection of
' nuts and apples to represent, the
j clay which Israel worked into bric'ks.
The Passover falling at the begin-
I ning of spring, had originally a pas-j
| toral and agricultural character. 1
i which In time was overshadowed 1
i by the historical event associated
I later with the feast. Freedom and I
i its obligation is the keynote of the
•I celebration. The Reform synagogues I
j hold special services only on the first j
