Considers Proposals to Grant
Raw Material to
Paris. April 22.—The Supreme
Economic Council is meeting to
day to consider proposals to grant
a limited supply of raw materials,
notably cotton, to Germany to en
able the factories there to start
work and to relieve the unemploy
ment. which is said to be at the
bottom of much of the disorder in
Germany. The council, it is said,
also will revise regulations for
German exports required to pay for
food imports and probably will dis
cuss the new economic situation
created by the slackening of the
blockade regulations as applied to
Germany's neutral neighbors.
After April 25 goods and com
modities may be shipped to the
neutral countries adjoining Ger
many, virtually without restriction,
the neutrals themselves assuming
responsibility against the re-export
of prohibited wares to Germany.
The "blacklist," rationing and Al
lied control regulations will be
abolished from that date.

Try This If You
Have Dandruff
There is one sure way that never
fails to remove dandruff completely
and that is to dissolve it. This de
stroys it entirely. To do this, just
get: about four ounces of plain, or
dinary liquid arson; apply it at night
when retiring; use enough to mois
ten the scalp and rub it in gently
with the finger tips.
By morning, most if not all, of your
dandjiuff will oe gone, and three or
four more applications will complete
ly dissolve and entirely destroy every
single sign and trace of it, no mat
ter how much dandruff you may have.
You will find. too. that all itching
and digging of the scalp will stop
instantly, and your hair will be
fluffy, lustxous, glossy. silky and
soft, and look and feel a hundred
times better.
You can get liquid arvon at any
drug stiore. It is inexpensive, and
four ounces is all you will need.
This simple remedy has never been
known u> fall. i

Cost of Flour Only Forty-five Per Cent, of Bread; High
Wages Will Maintain Price, Declares Julius 11. Barnes
New York, April 22.—Despite |
maintenance of the government
guaranteed prices in the face of an
American wheat crop which will
probably break all records, domestic
consumers will not pay rnpre for
the product during the coming year
than the rates concurrently accepted
from foreign buyers, Julius H. j
Barnes, newly-appointed Federal ]
wheat director, assured the public ill
a statement here last night outlin
ing the policies of his administra-'
tion. ■
Mr. Barnes termed unsound any
governmental scheme of artificial
subsidizing and thought it quite pos
sible, with the greater part of
Europe looking to America for food
and the crop prospects of the Allied
countries even poorer than last year,
that little inroad except of a tempo
rary nature, would be made upon the
billion-dollar fund provided by Con
Sproul Against
Any Ripper Bills
Governor Sproul to-day assumed
the high place in the Philadelphia
legislatoin controversy. In state
ments to Philadelphia newspapers
yesterday he declared he was opposed
to rippers as he was early in the ses
Senator Penrose announced that he
was determined to push the Philadel
phia bills, but did not amplify his sug
gestion of more drastic legislation
made earlier in the day. State Chair
man William E. Crow lined up with
Senator Penrose as did several other
senators. Senator Edwin H. Vare
promptly arranged a continuance of
the Philadelphia bill uncertainty for
another week.
While some newspapers are mak
ing efforts to get the Governor In
volved in the controversy it. looks
very much as though he was going to
wait and see in what form the Phila
delphia hills reach him, with the dis
tinct understanding that he will sign
no rippers.
It can not be said that up-State
members are viewing the prolonging
of the Philadelphia controversy or
the chances of a June session with
any degree of pleasure.
gress to carry out the farmer's guar- j
antee of $2.26 a bushel.
Accepting the Department of Agri
culture's estimate of the largest win- ;
ter wheat crop in history and mak
ing allowance lor unfavorable weath
er conditions which had held the
spring crop back two weeks, Mr.
Barnes predicted that America's
1919 wheat yield would tax to the
utmost the country's storage, rail
road and shipping facilities. He ex
pected reduced wheat and wheat
products prices within two months.
They are now above the government
l'air price level owing to the heavy
export demand but he saw little
chance of a return of the five-cent
loaf of bread.
The cost of flour was only 45 per
cent, of the cost of bread, he said,
and with wages and other factors of
manufacture at high levels there was
no present likelihood that the price
would be cut in two.

An odd official position has been
created in Kansas City by naming
one of the citizens "Lost Land In-1
vestigator for Jackson County." The j
duty of the Land Investigator'
Is Just what his title indicates; he
is looking for real estate which be
longs to the county but has, so to
speak, been mislaid.
The task presumably involves a
thorough going over of old land •
deeds and real estate deals along
the river front from Kansas City
to the county line, this being the,
locality where it is believed the
county may own some land without
knowing just where it is, and there
is also the possibility that changes
in the course of the river have ere- j
ated new land to which the county
could rightfully claim title.
As might be expected, however,
there are skeptics who hold that the
only thing the Lost Land Investiga
tor is certain to find is his own
monthly salary.

Lieut. Col. Ed. S. Schell
Arrives at Home Port
Lieutenant-Colonel Ed. S. Schell,
of this city, has arrived in New
York City and is expected to arrive
in Harrisburg Friday or Saturday,
according to word received here.

company in the Harrisburg unit and
was later promoted to the rank of
major. As such, he was sent to
Camp Logan, Houston. Texas, and
August 1 of last year was ordered to
duty overseas, where he was in
charge of a hospital camp. About
a month ago he received promotion
to the rank of lieutenant-colonel.
Mrs. Schell was at the dock in
New York City to greet her husband.
He was sent to Camp Dix, New Jer
sey, and expects to reach this city
some time during the latter part of
the week.

" Harrisburg's Dependable Store"
QLOTHING prices have come down, and are getting
Of course there are merchants throughout the
country who have been unwise enough to stock heavily
on merchandise at "six months ago" prices, and
naturally it is to their advantage to let the public think
prices have not been lowered.
But Wm. Strouse & Co. did not do this—they knew
what was coming, and consequently their stock is re
plenished weekly with the latest models, and at current
That's why Wm. Strouse sells the same suits at
s2s—s3o—s3s that some merchants are selling at from
thirty to fifty per cent, higher.
And that's also one of reasons the people of this
city have come to know Wm. Strouse & Co. as "Harris
burg's Dependable Store."
We wish to thank the many patrons of this store
for their kind indulgence of our delivery service. But
we are glad to announce that with the help of our own
loyal tailors, and additional ones, we delivered every
suit in time for the Easter parade —even though some
were delivered Easter morning.
