His Plucky Little Wife Gets
Great Ovation at Rail
road Station
London, May 28.—Harry G. Hawk
er and Lieutenant Commander
iMackenzie Grieve were given a re
markable reception on their arrival
in London last night from Northern
Scotland, where they were landed
iMpnday morning after their unsuc
cessful attempt to fly across the At
lantic ocean from Newfoundland to
llreland in an airplane.
Such enthusiasm as was shown
in the greetings of the two Intrepid
(airmen, for whose safety after they
Ihad failed to arrive at their desti
'nation on scheduled time the world
had been Tearful, probably never has
Ibeen exceded, except in the times
of coronations.
A foretaste of the great welcome
; that the aviators were to receive
i came during the afternoon when
i Mrs. Hawker went to the railway
station to proceed to Granthan to
meet her husband. Tho throng
about the station loudly cheered the
plucky little woman, who never
| gave up confidence that her hus
. band ultimately would be rescued,
(•even though the hours he was over
due grew into days and finally
'reached a week.
Arriving in London, headed by an
Austrian band and a body of Aus
: traliau troops and a large number
i of automobiles, Hawker and Grieve
passed through the densely packed
■streets on the way to the Aero Club.
Another delegation in the parade,
which was accompanied by a band,
was composed of workers from the
Sopwith works, where the machine
in which Hawker and Grieve at
tempted to span the ocean was con
The first official welcome was ac
t-corded the airmen on the station at
! St. Pancras by the Mayor of that
borough, but still another was given
1 them inside the Aero Club building.
After the ceremony at the Aero
Club the aviators were entertained
by the Sopwith workers.
Like Mrs. Hawker, Mr. and Mrs.
Grieve proceeded up the line and
met their son and bade him wel
come and congratulated him on his
rescue before he reached London.
Asked whether he would make
another attempt to fly across the
Atlantic Hawker said last night:
"I don't know. It depends upon
the Sopwith firm."

Become Reckless Through
Cruel Military Law
Peking, May 28.—Conditions in
Korea resulting from the independ
ence movement there where the Ko
reans are endeavoring to shake off the
rule of Japan, are becoming worse,
according to the Rev. Edward W.
Thwing, Oriental secretary of the
International Reform Bureau, who
has just returned from Korea.
"The Koreans began the inde
pendence movement with the Inten
tion of using only peaceful methods,"
the Rev. Thwing told the Associated
Press correspondent, "but the Jap
anese soldiers have so treated them
and stirred them up that they are
now wild and reckless. No one can
tell what will come next. Seeds of
hate and future trouble are being
widely sown. Christians often suf
fer most. I have visited several
places in Korea during the uprising
and everywhere it is the same kind
of cruel military lawlessness. One
Korean Christian pastor said: 'We
cannot stand it. They beat us like
pigs and cattle; and we are men.'
"The Japanese are always trying
to discover supposed plots and con
spiracies," continued the Rev. Mr.
Thwing. "They even claim to be
lieve that the missionaries started
the revolution. They try to get
Korean spies to go into the houses
of foreigners. They search the
houses of American missionaries,
looking for no one knows what. In
a town that I recently visited, we
were shadowed by a Korean who
was described to me by a missionary
as 'the cleverest spy in town.'
"The Koreans hate these men. Of
course, being spies, they have to
bring information and when they
can find none they often manufac
ture it. Many have been arrested
who had no connection with the af
fair and have been cruelly beaten.
At the police station they often beat
the men before any trial on the gen
eral principle that it is a good thing
I for every Korean to taste the power
of Japan."

Knights of Columbus
Thanked by Pershing
For Work With Army
A letter from General Pershing,
received by William J. Mulligan,
Chairman of Knights of Columbus
War Activities, expressed in warm
terms appreciation for what the
Knights of Columbus have done for
the American Army abroad, before
and since the armistice was signed.
General Pershing, in his letter said;
"I wish to express through you to
the Knights of Columbus my appre
ciation and that of the officers and
men under "my command for the
valuable services rendered by your
organization to the American Ex
peditionary Forces," wrote General
"The active work of your organi
zation in France began early in 1918,
was well under way by the spring of
that year, and has been increasing
in scope ever since. Before the ces
sation of hostilities its workers were
attachd to many of the combat di
visions and recreation huts had been
opened in the principal American
concentration centers. Numerous
commanding officers have commend
ed the devotion to duty of your per
sonnel, and have testified to their
popularity and helpfulness among
the troops whom they served.
"During the armistice, it has been
particularly active in the promotion
of athletics, a most valuable factor
for health and contentment. It has
also contributed to the success of the
Army entertainment program by
numerous appropriations for musical
Instruments and equipment of sol
dier shows, has increased its general
recreational activities, helping ma
terially to maintain the morale of
the Army during the inevitable peri
od of waiting to go home.
"I thank you, and each individual
worker in your organization, for your
valuable assistance."

One of City's Oldest Business
men Receives Many
Saturday was the eighty-fifth birth
day anniversary of Joseph Montgom
ery, one of Harrisburg's oldest busi
ness men and volunteer firemen, and
in the evening, a delegation of mem
bers of the Citizen Fire Company No.
3, called at the home, 227 State
street, to congratulate their oldest
and most esteemed veteran member.
They went to the Montgomery home
with their chemical truck and steam
fire engine and took with them a oox
of Mr. Montgomery's favorite cigars.
The committee, headed by President
Charles P. Meek, consisted of Dr.
William E. Vallerchamp, Frank Fa
gan, James Brady, Robert Wilson,
Charles Slex and others. The visit
was a surprise to Mr. Montgomery,
and he gave his fellow members a
hearty welcome. President MeCk
presented the veteran fireman with
the box of cigars as a testimonial
from the Citizen Company, and the
viaitors remained there for some
time, while Mr. Montgomery talked
of the work of this old volunteer fire
organization with which he had been
actively connected from the time of
the hand engine, hand-pulled, on to
the apparatus drawn by horses and
now to the up-to-date motor-driven
engine and chemical.
Mr. Montgomery joined the Citizen
Fire Company February 1, 1850, when
he was sixteen years old, and has
been a member more than sixty-nine
years. When first admitted to the
company membership he was one of
the "torch carriers," a position usu
ally filled by the youngest members.
Mr. Montgomery was elected first
assistant engineer of the Harrisburg
Fire Department in 1868, when the
department wa s first organized, and
the next year he was re-elected for
the full term.
On the evening of February 17,
1868, Mr. Montgomery was seriously
injured at a fire at the hardware
store of Anthony King, a: the corner
of Third and Market streets, where
the Kunkei Building now stands. An
explosion of benzine or oil took place
in the cellar of the store, wrecking
the building. Twenty firemen, in
cluding Mr. Montgomery, were hurt.
Three of them were members of the
Citizen, ten of the Washington, six of
the Friendship and one of the Hope.
Mr. Montgomery at that time was
president of the Citizen Company, and
his injuries were the most serious,
disabling him for several weeks.
Joseph Montgomery, a son of James
and Sarah A. (Peipher) Montgomery,
was born in Harrisburg, May 24,
1834. He was-educated In the public
schools of his native, city and in his
boyhood entered the employ of the
Peipher Fast Freight Line, with
which he remained until his retire
ment from active work a few years
ago, although he is still the senior
member and president of Montgom
ery and Company.
The full Malta degree was con
ferred last night on a number of
candidates. The meeting was held in
G. A. R. hall. Third street, and was
attended by many Knights of Malta
members from this city and vicinity.
Plans were announced last night
for a reception to Maltas who re
cently returned from war duty. An
Interesting program Is being ar
ranged. The reception will be held

Bbard Not Assured Thirteen
and One-Half Mills Is
\ Sufficient
Raising the tax rate from 11 1-2
to 13 1-2 mills the city school board
yesterday afternoon by a vote of
seven to two, approved the budget
for the 1919-1920 season and pro
vided revenue to meet it and to pay
the deficit of $55,000 which will ex
ist at the close of the present school
year. \
Director John F. Dapp during the
special board meeting yesterday aft
ernoon predicted that next year the
board would in ail probability face
the necessity of another millage in
crease of at least one mill, provided
the present program of schooi de
velopment is carried out.
Only Al'ny Out
Dr. F. E. Downes also told the di
rectors that because of the incon
venience and difficulty in arranging
schedules for teachers at the Cen
tral High school for the double ses
sions, a force of instructors must
be maintained there, which is about
one-third larger than would bo
needed in a new high school with
only one session.
Directors George A. Werner and
Dr. C. E. L. Keen were the only
two opposing the tax increase. Both
declared they were in accord with
every expenditure provided in the
budget, but did not favor a two-mill
jump in the tax charge. Dr. Keen
attempted to have the rate fixed at
12 1-2 mills, one mill higher than at
present, and Director Werner op
posed any increase, urging the board
to continue to operate under the
present rate and accumulate a de
ficit of about $115,000, to bo met
next year.
He suggested the sale of property
at Third and Harris streets and the
present continuation school, this
money to be used for general ex
penses. Other officials of the board
declared that the,y_ could not legally
use funds from the sale of the prop
erties for general maintenance.
Want No Reduction
At the opening of the session a
letter from the Chamber of Com
merce urging the Board not to reduce
the appropriation for community
center work was read by Secretary
D. D. Hammelbaugh.
As soon as the budget was men
tioned, Director Dapp said that by
cafreful investment of the school dis
trict funds they would earn $12,000
interest in a year, % instead of $5,000,
the amount listed in estimated rev
enue for next. year. A lengthy dis
cussion followed in which the ma
jority of the members participated
and it was finally decided to take
action at the. next regular meeting.
Director Werner commended the
committee in preparing the complete
budget this year, but declared the
deficit should certainly be carried
over until conditions are "more set
tled" predicting they will be next
Poor Business
It was evident by the time Mr.
Werner stopped speaking that a
sufficient majority of the directors
favored a two-mill increase so that
there would be no deficiency next
year. President Robert A. Enders
and Directors Cameron R. Baer and

Vacuum Valve Makes It Possible to Magnify Sounds to Tre
mendous Extent—Used By Navy
Sun Francisco, May 28.—A man's
voice can be made as loud as the J
c annon's roar; it can be heard two or j
twenty miles. The ticking of a watch I
can be amplified until it sounds like
breakers on an ocean cliff.
'lt's no trick at all to magnify
sound four or live million times, or
indefinitely," said Tom I-ambert, a
wireless telephone engineer, to-day.
"All that is needful is to connect a
cumber of vaceum valves In multi
ple with a wireless receiving set, and
the thing is done. At the first re
ceiving contact a voice will be nor
mal. Cut in one vaceum valve and
it is raised seven times; therefore it
squares itself—seven times seven to
forty-nine for the next vacuum valve,

the next, and so on.,

the close of the discussion about sell- ;
ing school property.
Keen Rpenks
Several members seconded, but Mr. j
Baer was recorded as doing so. Dr. ■
Keen then moved to amend the mo- \
tion and make the rate 12% mils.
Mr. Dapp said he would second the
umendment motion in order to get
It before the Board for a vote, but
also stated he would not vote for
the 12% mill rate.
Dr. Keen then made a statement in
which he praised President Enders
and Dr. F. E. Downos, city superin
tendent, but condemned the entire j
Board as being responsible for the i
vast increases. He mentioned tax
rates and teachers' salaries in other
cities in the Slate comparing them !
with Harrisburg.
Dr. Downos explained that the rea- i
