Deed Says Athletic Field
Cannot Be Used Save For
Religious Purposes
Those Favoring Use of Swim
ming Pool Say "Cleanliness
is Next to Godliness"
Tyrone, Pa.. May Sl.—Agitation Is
rife in town over the opening of tho
Athletic Park, with the swimming
Pool, on Sundays during the summer.
Those in favor here have been put
ting forth much propaganda and the
other side have replied. The entire
matter was brought to a sudden de
cision, when it was discovered that
the deed conveying the lgnd to tho
Y. M. C. A., contained a proviso that
the park should never be opened on
Sunday except for religious purposes.
But even then, the agitators, insist
ing that cleanliness is next to Godli
ness, irsist that the swimming pool
should be available on Sunday. And
there you are.—The local Y. M. C. A.
conducted a membership drive this
week, which was successful beyond all
expectations. On account of the war
and its taking away of the young men
end the various activities of the wa*v
it was not feasible to have u mem
bership drive for the past two years,
so that the membership roll dropped
from 1.600 to 400. Wltn tho building
thoroughly renovated and repaired,]
and the superb athletic field put in
perfect shape, it was necessary to
increase the membership to get the
thing in working condition. Over
1.030 members were secured In four
days, which makes the total member
ship eiose to 1,500. A new secretary
has been invited to accept the posi
tion here, it. L. Doner, who had charge
of the Y. M. O. A. work at State Col
lege. while the S. A. T. C. was mo
bilized there. Everything Is now al-,
most perfect shape for the grand |
opening, which is booked for June 1. ,

Work Somewhat Delayed. Until Government Secured
Detailed Statement of All Materiuls and Property in
Sale; Ground Will Be Cleared and Put Back
in Condition It Was Before War
i Gettysburg, Pa., May SI. Work
i wai started the beginning of the
| week on the tearing down of Camp
] Colt. The work had been delayed
! for a week or so because the require
ments of the Government made it
, necessary that an itemised statemer.-t
of all property in the sale had to be
in their hands before the tearing
down was started. Some local parties
bought buildings from the contrac
tors and the rasing of these build
ings was done first, and then the
contractors. Lewis Brothers, of Rock
lslar.-d, Illinois, began operations. It
will take about two months to clear
the grounds of all property and put
it back in condition as it was before
the camp was built. Five new
bridges will be constructed in Adams
county by the State Highway De
partment during-the Ynonths of June
and July. Two of the structures are
( to be in Frar.-klln township, two in
Cumberland and one in Mount Joy
township. The State will pay the.
entire cost of construction without
any assistance from the county. L'ntil
a short time ago it was understood
that the policy of the Highway De
partment was to build or-dy those
bridges in which the spans were only
ten feet or less in width. All of
these structures, however, are of
greater width, one of the spans in
one of the bridges to be built in
Franklin township being thirty feet
in width. Hoffman Orphanage, a
Reformed institution in the southern
part of Adams county, is to be en
larged during the year. Several new
buildings will be erected, among a j

Woman Who Served
as Civil War Nurse
Dies at Pottstown
M ■
Til ■■ .
Pottstown, Pa., May 31. Mrs.
Rebecca Larre (Pennypacker) Price,
widow of Edwin Price, president and
chaplain of the National Association
of Civil War Nurses, died at her
home at Pottstown, aged 81 years.
Until a few months ago she lived at
Lancaster. She was one of the few
surviving members of this noble
band of women who nursed the
boys of 61-65. The late Governor
Pennypacker was a first cousin. All
through the recent war with Ger
many she had been very Active and
took interest in the work among
tho various organizations. Her hus
band was a leading merchant. She
was buried at Phoenixville. One son
and one daughter survive.
Mrs. Rebecca Lane Price, for
merly Miss Pennypacker, of Phoe
nixville, Chester county, was born
in that town, September 8, 1837.
She took a deep Interest in the war
and in Red Cross work. She wore a
Red Cross button which clara Bar
ton pinned on her many a year ago
and it was a valued treasure of this
veteran woman. Her son, G. E.
.Price, professor of neurology in
-Jefferson college, Philadelphia, en
listed in the Medical Reserves. Her
daughter, lyflss Cora, lived with her.
Mrs. Price was one of the 150
members of the Pennypacker family
of Pennsylvania, who enjoyed the
privilege of serving their country in
the time of the Civil War. Her
mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Pennypacker,
was matron of the Chambcrsburg
hospital and her sister, Melissa, was
a nurse there at that time.
Among the others who served
were General Galusha Penrtypacker,
a cousin of the late Governor Sam
uel W. Pennypacker, of Pennsyl
vania. Mrs. Price was married in
1859, and later she organized a party
of young women to sew "blouses"
which were cut out by the Govern
ment for the first company of sol
diers which was organized at Phoe
nixville in 1861 for the Civil War.
Mrs. Price in response to a call
in 1861 from Governor Curtin, gave
her services as a nurse in a field
hospital. Ip December, 1862, she
left for Wind Mill Point. Virginia,
where she nursed sick ar.-d wounded,
and later nursed at Chambersburg,
Fortress Monroe and at the Phila
delphia hospital. Mrs. Price was a
member of the Association of Army-
Nurses of the Civil War, which con
sists of the women who nursed sol
diers in the Civil War, and for two
terms was its president.
At the fiftieth anniversary reunion
at Gettysburg in- 1913, Mrs. Price
met three Confederate and two
Union soldiers, whom she nursed
during the Civil War, and they re
membered her by her eleventh corps
badge. General Sickles also recalled
the morning he took breakfast with
her "sister" while she nursed them.
