For Mayor in Philadelphia
By Associated Press.
Philadelphia, Aug. B.—Congress
man J. Hampton Moore has an
nounced his candidacy for the Re
publican nomination for Mayor of
Philadelphia at the primary elec
tion in September. In a statement
Mr. Moore 6aid he was willing to
sacrifice his Congressional career in
an effort to "redeem the city and
the Republican party." He declared
that he would go before the people
as a Republican, "singularly free
from pledges and influences," and
"I have not asked any leader ol
faction or committee for his or its
support, and seem already to have
incurred the opposition of some. I
would not care, therefore, to swear
in to any specific declarations that
might please one element or an-

duty. I have no hesitation, however,
in making this statement as to so

Mr. Moore said that, if elected,
he would enforce all the require

letter and in spirit.
Actors Call Strike Which
May Close Broadway Shows
New York, Aug. 8. A strike,
which it was declared would close
many popular Broadway theatrical
productions, was called by the Ac
tors' Equity Association last night,
following the rejection by the Pro
ducing Managers' Protective Asso
ciation of an ultimatum demanding
immediate action on the actors' de

Meals Apparently Come First
in Big Scout Program
of Week
Camp Roosevelt was established
July 29 in fine shape. The trip of
several hours on Tom Bogar's big
lumber truck was made without any
unusual happenings.
With all scouts doing their little
bit eight tents were put up in a
short while. The camp is beauti
fully located, about eight miles west
of Carlisle and five miles from New
ville on a high elevation on the
bank of the Conodoguinet Creek.
Quite a number of parents and
friends of Troop seven have visited
the camp and have expressed a
very creditable opinion of the gen
eral conditions and the programs
that are daily carried out. The
scouts appreciated, beyond expres
sion. courtesies shown in this man
Many of the surrounding towns
have been visited on hiking trips,
and the scouts have tried to whos
the training they are daily receiving.
On Saturday evening they visited
Blaserville, at which place a festival
was in progress. Of course they as
sisted greatly in reducing the ice
cream. Before leaving they exer
cised their vocal organs, singing.
Sunday at camp was visitors day
—Many people of the surrounding
country and quite a number of au
tomobiles came from the city.
With a good cook, eating seems
to be one of the first things a scout
thinks of, while enjoying the va
rious amusements and routine of a
scout camp. Certainly they have
had lots of good roast beef, chicken,
ice cream and cake. The scout
master will tell you later what 36
scouts and assistants have eaten oil

Outside of several good, steady
rains, the weather has been idea'.

Troop II Will Give
Out Final Camp Orders
Xext Monday evening at 7.15 final
camp orders and arrangements will
be given out. This year only two
boys are to be in one tent and there
will be no "double decker costs,"
as we call them. About two weeks
ago Mr. Manser brought us twenty
tents, 7 by 8%, and some of the
Scouts have tents also, so we will
not have to worry about room.
As Mr. Manser was away when
we had our last scout meeting, no
one knows whether he secured the
ground at Mount Gretna, where we
would all like to go. If the ground
cannot be secured from the Govern
ment for two weeks, we will go up
to Clark's Valley, about one mile
above Alger Bailey's farm.

Eight Boys Pledged
to Go to Scout Camp
Joseph McClintock came all the
way from Altoona to attend the meet
ing of Troop 16. That's going some,
isn't it? Sixteen fellows were there,
and lots of money changed hands.
The reason was the arrival of some
supplies that had been ordered and
were not expected so soon. Our new
flags are O. K„ and Foose and Cleon
Criswell were instructed to buy two
poles. We hope to have them ready
for the meeting to-night.
Scouts Huston, Buler and Saunders
were on hand for the movies on Sat
urday morning.
We have eight fellows pledged to
go to camp on the 11th and hope to
have some others.
| The Troop is indebted to Cleon and
Wilbur Criswell, Charles Froelich
and Bob Weitzel for a water barrel
and two baskets to be used at the
To-night we are to have the plea

i who went overseas with the first
I Troops and camp home about a month
! ago. Lieut Lutz covered a large part
of France on a motor cycle in the
telephone service, and has something
worthy ¥b tell us. Several of his let
ters were read at Troop Meeting dur
ing the period of the war. We are
having a joint meeting with the Cubs
at 7.30. No business or work, Just
Lieut. Lutz and a general good time.

New Caps For Troop
Two Are Sent Back
Yes, the new caps for Troop II
have arrived, but don't mob Crego's
house in order to get yours; they
were not properly made, so they had
to be sent back. Please be patient
for another ten days, until the sec
ond lot comes in.
The crowd last Friday was small,
our smallest by the way this sum
mer: only fourteen fellows were
therd. George Moore sent some
dues from Oil City and asked that
his place be kept for him. George's
mother has been very ill, and he
has been looking after her, like a
good cub should. Charles R. Boak
has qualified for house orderly prof
iciency badge and we hope to pre
sent it to him very soon. Two cubs
will go with some six or eight Scouts
to the camp next Monday.
We expect to have our new nu
merals very soon; they will cost 10
cents each and will be sold only
to those cubs who have passed the
tenderfoot test, and whose attend
ance at the meeting is fairly regular.
To-night we meet with Troop 16,
at 7.30, so don't come at half-past
six and expect to find the doors open.
Lieut. Fred F. Lutz will tell us of
the troubles of a telephane man
with the American Expeditionary
Forces. At 7.30, remember.'

Cocoanut Oil Makes
A Splendid Shampoo
If you want to keep your hair in
i good conditions, be careful what you
i wash it with.
Most soaps and prepared sham
i poos contain too much alkali. This
I dries the scalp, makes the hair
! brittle, and is very harmful. Mulsi
i tied cocoanut oil shampoo (which is
pure and entirely greaseless), is
j much better than anything else you
can use lor shampooing, as this
I can't possibly injure the hair.
! Simply moisten your hair with
water and rub it in. One or two
: teaspoonfuls will make an abund
, ance of rich, creamy lather, and
cleanses the hair and scalp thor
oughly. The lather rinses out easily
and removes every particle of dust,
dirt, dandruff and excessive oil.' The
hair dries quickly ffnd evenly, and
it leaves It fine and silky, bright,
fluffy and easy to manage.
You can get Mulsifled cocoanut
oil shampoo at most any drug store.
It is very cheap, and a few ounces
is enough to' last everyone in the
family for months.
Troopers of No. 8 Have Big
Time For Two
Twenty-seven members of Troop j
8 of Christ Lutheran church have j
returned home again, after having
spent the last two weeks at Camp j
Samoset, which was located seven |
miles northeast of Duncannon,
along Sherman's Creek. This two
week's outing was the most success
ful and enjoyable ever attended by
the scouts of Troop 8. The visitors
at our camp assured us that we
could not have selected a prettier
The camp was in charge of Scout
master J. P. Jenkins, assistants, S.
Masters, Koehler and Keller. The
following scouts were enrolled:
Burchiield, Brookes, D. Bowman, G.
Bowman, Brandt Fry, Fcagley,
Duncan, Gates, Gilbert Hopkins,
Lehmer, Newman, Ossman, Strlck
ler, Shoop, Slothower. Under, Ed.
Wallis, E. Wallis, F. Wallis Walters,
Wartield and Tasker.
There were over 50 visitors in at
tendance. We were nonored by the
presence of Scout Commissions
German and our own deputy scout
commissioner, R. F. Lyons, and Mr.
Heffelfinger and Frank Wallis of our
troop committee.
Did we have a good time? Unan
imously, "Yes." Did we have any
accidents? "No."
One of the features enjoyed at
camp was the hunt for "Wa! Wal"
birds, baseball games (Blues vs the
Gold). The big game of ball was
played Thursday afternoon, the
winners to receive a large cake of
fered by Scout Commissioner Ger
man. The Blues won the game and
thoroughly enjoyed the cake.
On Saturday we took a fourteen
mile hike to New Bloomfield and
showed the home-folks up there
what scouts could do, signalling,
drilling and first aid demonstra
tions. After defeating the Ne>v
Bloomfield Academy's baseball
team, we returned to camp.
Among the other outstanding fea
tures of our camp was the usual
morning dip, the flag raising and
one hour drill; then breakfast.
After breakfast scoutcraft. Eleven
o'clock swimming for the would-be
swimmers; 12.30 dinner; 1 o'clock a
ball game; 3.30 a swim for the reg
ular "guys."
Troop 8 again had the pleasure
of doing a good turn at camp. We
helped rake and fill the hay* wagon
and the haymow with five tons of
hay for Mr. Shearer, who owns the
ground we were camping on, and to
our surprise Mr. Shearer invited us
to his home for a good old
fashioned country supper. We all
wished there was more hay in the
field for the next day.
Lots of the scouts took tests and
are on the road now to be First
Class scouts. If fishing had been a
test. Assistant Scoutmaster Koehler
would have passed this one, for he
sure did catch some nice base.
Who went for the most water and
who sawed the most wood? Looks
as though Scout Feagley wins out
in this contest. Who went for the
most water? Scout Frank Wallio.
Who ate the most? Well all the
fellows sure took part in this and
the winner was hard to pick. The
highest number of "Wa! Wa!" birds
captured goes to Christy Brandt, h*
having received two large buckets
of water as a reward, and it was
agreed upon that he was thoroughly
■ fee ' as . though we were en
riched physically, mentally and
morally by attending this camp, and
so at our meeting Monday we had
song and prayer services, rendering
thanks unto the Great Scout Master
for his great, kind blessing that he
bestowed upon us.
We are already talking about our
fall program and we can assure the
rest of the troops of the city that
any evening you drop in we will
show you a "Live Wire Troop" and
a good time. The third week in
September will be our "eye opener"
for the fall activities. A musical

Advice to the Lovelorn
Objects to Vaudeville
Dear Miss Fairfax:
lam twenty-two. The young lady
with whom I have been going about
for a year objects to my activities on
the vaudeville stage. I love this
young lady dearly, and yet it is im
possible for me to give up a success
ful career.
Will you kindly advise me as to
what course to take in this matter?
I'm afraid this is a deadlock. If
you are not inclined to give up your
work, and the young lady is not in
clined to overcome her objections. It
looks as though you would have' to
give each other up. In fact, I'm not
sure this wouldn't be the best thing
to do, as a fundamental difference in
point of view is a serious menace to
a happy marriage.
