"Harrisburg's Greatest Commercial School"
Boy Returning From Festival
Finds Thief in His
| Sunbury. Aug. 23. Near Beaver
' town on Thursday night two bur
glars broke into the residence of
Harvey Moyer, a tenant farmer.
Mr. and Mrs. Moyer and a son went
to Beavertown to do some shopping
and another son, John, to a festival.
The son returned home about 9.30
P. M., and went to bed. He had not
retired more than ten minutes when
he discovered a burglar in his room,
j Moyer Jumped out of bed and the
burglar Jumped out of the second
story window.
Pretty soon another burglar entered
the room. The young man jumped
out of the window himself, as he
had no ammunition in the house. He
ran over to Edward Freed's nearby
for ammunition and came back and
opened fire on the burglar, who es
caped into a corn field.
By this time Mr. and Mrs. Moyer
returned from Beavertown, and hear
ing the shots hastened to the noy's
aid. The ammunition by this time
was all gone with the exception of
one shell, and they sent word to
Beavertown for more ammunition.
When the shells arrived no trace of
the intruders could be found.
Three ten dollar bills were missing.
The burglars operated without a light
of any kind, and this leads to the
conclusion they were familiar with
the house.

Snyder County School Direc~
tors Lay Shortage of $2,500
to Former Secretary
Simbiiry, Aug. 2 3.—Reasons why
they think they should not be ousted
from office "for gross negligence" have
been filed with the Snyder county court
by the surcharged Monroe township
board of school directors.
Their principal contention is that their
former secretary, Ira J. Heiser, is the
real culprit, and that the other mem
bers of the board are being surcharged
55.296.24 because they trusted Heiser
too far.
In one item of $2,500, with which
they are surcharged, the board of di
rectors believe they have made out a
clear case against Heiser that he de
liberately appropriated the amount.
A balance of $2,500 remained unpaid
as the final settlement due on the $lO,-
000 high school building at Shamokin
Dam on April 7, 1917. The board that
day granted an order on the treasurer
for the $2,500 to be paid to Albert
Boyer, of Northumberland, the contrac
Heiser volunteered he would be going
to Northumberland In a few days, and
that it was unnecessary for the treas
urer to go to the trouble or expense of
mailing the check to Boyer. He should
just give it to Heiser, and Heiser would
hand it to Boyer when he saw him in
the near future. It is claimed Heiser
did not make delivery of the amount.

Shortage of Teachers Serious
and Schools Will Likely
Be Closed
Gettysburg, Pa., Aug. 23. With
the opening of the public schools of
the county but a week oft the question
of securing enough teachers for the
schools is a serious one. Last year
three schools were closed and the pu
pils placed in other schools in the same
district, but it was believed once the
war was over the teachers who were
called into the Army would return to
their old vocation and there would he
no trouble. If anything the situation
is more serious.
The officials have been doing their
utmost to locate teachers, but a num
ber are yet needed. To offset the
shortage, however, it is almost certain
at least ten schools will be closed and
the pupils transferred to other build
ings. With the,'teachers of these
schools available to be sent to other
schools relieves the situation to a very
great extent, but even this does not
solve the problem entirely.
In Liberty township there is one
school without a teacher, and the sit
uation here Is the most serious in the

time summer in the history of the

ness is as heavy as (luring the try
ing days of the war. There is actu

Three more crews will be added to
the number which run out of here.

cation yard was reopened after being
closed for several months. With the
opening of this yard the several addi
tional crews were necessary. All
freight consigned to points will be
classified in this yard, leaving the
other eastbound classification for the
freight consigned to the Cumberland
Valley, Philadelphia, New York and
other terminal points. It has only
been a few weeks since the now
