Will Erect Huge Boulder With
Bronze Plates Containing
Service Names
Blazing the trail for other Central j
Pennsylvania town*. Dauphin is
busily making plans for the erection
of a huge mountain boulder wtili
bronze plates bearing inscriptions j
and military assignments of soldiers ,
of the Great War and the Civil War, j
as a permanent memorial marker.
Dauphin feels that although it hag j
honored both groups of soldiers with j
home-coming celebrations, way back
in '65 and again in 'l9, some more
permanent mark of recognition J
should be bestowed upon those who j
braved and suffered the rigorous j
privations and hardships of war. It,
believes that the proposesd historic
marker will fill the gap.
11l Gratitude and Honor !
The movement has been launched
by several representative residents
ot' the upriver borough and although
it is but barely under way, pledges I
of support have been forthcoming
from all parts of the town. "11 e
hope that everyone will contribute
something, no matter how small so
that the whole town when it looks
upon the memorial will say, "This j
is ours. We've erected it in eternal
gratitude and honor to the men of ;
the World and Civil Wars," said a
pioneer of the movement this morn
Over the Top Every Tune
Dauphin passed far beyond its ;
fixed objectives in the five Liberty
loan drives, offensives of the Red
Cross and all other welfare work. .
This will also be mentioned on the ;
shaft according to tentative plans, j
so that posterity may be made fa- j
miliar with all the various activities
of the borough during the war with j
( Nestled at the foot of three moun- |
tains, the launchers of the move be- ,
lieve that no more appropriate ,
marker could be placed than a large J
boulder from one of them. It is,
•planned to secure one weighing in ,
the vicinity of two tons or larger. |
if found necessary, to contain the :
long list of service men. It will be
parti buried in the ground to secure
a firm foundation. Two or three sides
depending again upon the size of the
tablets, will be smoothed off to allow ;
the bronze to be attached. The re
mainder will be carefully preserved
in its rugged state.
It is pointed out that practically !
every town in Central Pennsylvania j
is in close proximity to a mountain j
and that markers could be erected j
by each at very low cost.
A majority of contributors to the j
funds necessary to defray expenses 1
will determine its site at Dauphin. I
Two places receiving foremost con
sideration are in Market Square and ;
at the junction of the William Penn ;
Highway and the Mountain road, j
If the latter place is decided upon;
a grass plot will surround it. The •
borough flagpole will also be placed
in a corner of the park.
Backing the movement are: Lieut- [
Gov. E. E. Beidleman, who has a !
summer residence at Dauphin; Dan- j
iel F. Seiler, F. C. Gerberich, W. F.
Heed, W. G. Garverich, I. L. Long,

Washington, Oct. S. President :
Wilson was stronger to-day than at;
any time since he became ill nearly
two weeks ago, said a bulletin is- |
i sued to-day by Rear Admirals Gray- !
• son and Stitt and Dr. Sterling ltuf- '
j An.
The bulletin follows:
| "White House. October 8. 11.55

"The President continues to
improve slowly. He is stronger
to-day than at any time since '
his illness began.

Much Encouraged
| Supplementing the official bulle
; tin Dr. Grayson said he was much
' encouraged by the continued im

J hut that for the present the orders
for absolute quiet would he enforc

1 see newspapers, but Mrs. Wilson
reads to him daily and be is prop-
I ped up with pillows from time to
I time to relieve the monotony of re
, maining in bed.
Mr. Wilson is again showing
I much interest in the Treaty fight in
i the Senate and in other business and
|it is only with increasing difficulty
i that his mind is diverted.
Wants to Eat Eggs
After another good night Presi
! dent Wilson appeared cheerful this
i morning, White House officials said
; and for the first time in more than
: a week, expressed a preference for
i eggs for breakfast.
It is with increasing difficulty that
j Rear Admiral Grayson, his personal
: physician, keeps the President from
! taking a hand in affairs of state. The
1 President has asked to see several
i persons, but neither Dr. Grayson
j nor Secretary Tumulty has been abli
; to locate any of them.
The President told them they
I showed a remarkable inability to j
j find any one he wanted to see, add- !
, ing that so far as he was concerned j
the "campaign of silence" was at an
: end.

The campaign is being waged to

Sixty Active Workers Are
Guests of Mrs. J.
Hall at Bowinansdalc
At noon to-day sixty members of;
the canteen service of the local j
American Red Cross chapter left the
headquarters of the chapter in Wal-:
nut street enroute for the summer i
home of Mrs. Francis Jordan Hall,, j
the captain, as her guests at lunch-]
con. Motors took the members to
the Bowmansdale estate.
Mrs. Hall, who has been the lead- 1
er of the canteen workers since their!
organization last year, is entertain- i
ing the workers to-day at a picnic!
lui\cheon, in recognition of their'
Indefatigable labors during the war,
and since the armistice. The can
teen service has met thousands of
trains and fed hundreds of thou
sands of soldiers, on their way to
the ports and later enroute to de
mobilization camps. The Harris
burg chapter has an unusual record
among the chapters of the east,
placed as it is at an important rail
road concentration point.
Presented With Cup
At the beginning of the luncheon I
Mrs. Hall was presented with a large;
silver cup. gift of the canteen work
ers, in appreciation of her services.
Mrs. Ross Anderson Hickok made
the presentation. The inscription on
the cup reads;
"Harriet Gilbert Hall, from
the Canteen Workers of the Red
Cross of Harrisburg. A tribute
to her enthusiasm, inspiring i
leadership, and untiring devot
ion to the canteen work during !
the World War."
Aside from the canteen workers. '
Mrs. Hall has invited to-day a nunt-j
her of men who were of such as-!
sistance at the Pennsylvania Rail-!
road station during the busiest times. ,
Unfortunately most of them will be '
unable to attend as the baggage de- j
partment and trainmaster's office is I
rather depleted through vacations at
this time. Mrs. G. H. Orth execu
tive secretary of the Harrisburg)
chapter, said to-day that had It not [
been for the cheerful help of these
railroad men. the work done by the I
canteen service would have been I
impossible. They were always ready
and willing to do everything in their]
power to help the workers.
The invitation list at the railroad I
includes Frank Matter, J. J. Weaver, j
R. W. Young. T. A. Miller. L. G. !
Long. W. X. Hornafius. H. S. Heis- j
er and L. T. Highland, from the
| trainmaster's office; and C. I. Bren
i isholtz, Ray M. Buffington, W. G.
Lytic and H. A. Wolfley from the'
| baggage department. It is feared 1
'that this list may be incomplete, asi
all departments could not be reach
ed this morning.
Frank Davenport has been invited '
to attend, as be was untiring in his
assistance to the workers and with
out him many things could not have
been done.

When the doors of Kaufman's Store were being opened to the public>
a purpose was being fulfilled by a man who was beginning to realize what
ambition and self sacrifice meant when backed by 100% of pluck—a

were the stepping stones of "Progress" one of Harrisburg's Greatest Mer

| The committee is face to face with •
| an interesting little problem in pop
ular psychology.
! Last week the same committee i
; staged a great free show on the i
i streets of Harrisburg. A parade of
I service men, dances, band concerts,
1 ball games, outdoor banquet and
] other events, brought forty thousand
: people into the central part of the '
: city. Presumably the 40,000 people j
came to honor tbe soldiers.
Now the committee is staging a ;
show of a different sort If forty i
thousand people come to the cen- i
trnl part of the city for tb's show, >
and do their part as well as they j
did last week, the fund will be sub- '
i scribed ten times over. The public j
(last week had grandstand seats in a •
free show. And the public showed !
that it know how to play its part. '
I The public takes tbe part of the 1
j prime actors in this week's show. It !
1s asked to contr.bute $70,000 for i
' a memorial. The committee Is
j hanking on Harrisburg's reputation !
; for wholehearted generosity, to as- ]
i sure the success of this week's per- '
! l'ormnnee.
The people who are waiting for ;
, solicitors to get their money were ,
scored at headquarters this morn- ,
J ing.
"Solicitors didn't have to drag ,
i forty thousand people out last week
to see the sights," it was said. "So
licitors, therefore, shouldn't have to ;
' drag a meager $70,000 out of 80,- .
i 000 people if those people really
• meant their cheers and*flag-waving
a week ago."
All the committee asks, it was in- \
j sisted, is that the public cash in j
on its cheers and verbal patriotism ;
Harrisburg never failed before and i
; tbe committee refuses to considei
that tbe city will fail now.
