I'here was every indication to-day
that Harrisburg in the forthcoming
Victory Loan campaign will surpass
its enviable record of the Fourth
Liberty Loan campaign, when over
• SO per cent, of its population bought
"Harrisburg in that campaign
made a remarkable showing," said
<'ity Chairman Andrew S. Patterson
this morning. "A glance at the flg
ures will show just how we compare
with other cities our size."
This is a tabulated statement of
what was done in the Fourth cam

Lieutenant Kyman is in charge of
the dying circus which comes to
Harrsburg from York Tuesday
morning. The "coming to llarris

a cup donated to lite committee by
Jeweler P. 11. Caplan.
The man or woman, or men and
women, who take tlights here must,
first sign a release, relieving the gov
ernment front all claims for dam
ages. This is imperative. There were
a hundred applicants for permission
to ride to-day.
The German dress helmets which
are to lie given as prizes in the Vic
tory Bond campaign are on the way
to the city, llarrisburg gets 72 of
them. A total of 112 comes to tlie
entire tri-county district.
In all likelihood the pilots in Tues
day's dying events will release sev
eral hundred circulars, certain of
which will lie numbered and will en
title ttie tinder to a helmet.
W earing Button- on \rins
The practice is becoming general
of wearing the Victory Bond but
ton on the arm. as a service stripe.
Victory workers are coupling the
button with a tri-color which shows
that they are workers.
A showing of "The Price of Peace"
was scheduled for Mifflin last night.
The crowds were such that "the"
showing developed into "three"

are out on strike for an increase
of from fifty cents to sixty-two and

Contracts Are Genuine
"These contracts are genuine," said

? union, replying to allegations made
iby a morning newspaper that they
. 1 were not.
1 The strikers have not yielded in
: j their demands, they say, and will

I decide to grant them the increase.
jThey declare there is plenty of work
. i for them and made the statement
■ ! that they have received telephone
i calls and telegrams from Atlantic
City and Trenton offering them as
I much as seventy and eighty cents an
! hour.
r 1 Did Government Work
Replying to statements made un
' officially by members of the Master
. | Painters' Association yesterday, they
| said that the reason they did not
• j help the firms of the city last year
1 j was because they were on govern
| | ment work. It was said they re
jceived letters from the War Depart
■ ment asking that their men get gov
-1 ernment jobs.
"We left the local painters, too,
; to work for the Pcnn-Harris people
because the hotel was a public neces
sity and the sooner it was completed,
j the better for the city.
According to the strikers the Mas-
I ter Painters as an official body have
( not yet replied to their advances.
Some of the painters are indig
! nant at the stand taken by the Mas
j ter Painters in tlie strike situation.
! It was pointed out by one of their
I number that the master painter re
-1 ceives $1.20 profit on the work of
: each man for each eight-hour day
! that he works. To emphasize his
i point, this pa'nter said that if he
! were in a shop with ten men work
ing under him during a forty-four
! hour week, the master painter would
receive a total of SCC.tiO. This pu'nt
j or told that he had been working
; at his trade for a total of forty years
i and In consequence knew the
j figures which he had cited to be
