Methodist Minister at Waynes
boro Leads in Demand For
Policeman's Discharge
Waynesboro. Pa., Nov. B.—State
Policeman Girvin lost his job here
when the Itev. Wilford P. Shriner,
pastor of the Methodist Church, ap
• peared before cotlnc'l and demanded
that the officer be discharged for
conduct unbecoming an officer. It
did not mollify the parson when
Councilman J. W. Croft said that
perhaps it would r <t. be wise to act
at once. Dr. Shriner said he pro
posed to remain in the council
chamber until the matter was set
tled, and stay he did.
On Hallowe'en night Girvin saw
the red light in Center Square flash
a danger signal. He answered the
call and was told there was trouble
at the Methodist Church. Arriving
there, he found the auditorium in
semi-darkness and a Hallowe'en en-
tertainment going on. Girvin flashed
his light among the maskers, finally
coming upon Irving G. Hall, who
was wearing garb closely reserm
bling that worn by monks. Dr.
Shriner says the policeman used
rough language. Girvin admits he
spoke sharply, saying in effect, "This
is not the time to mock at another
religion." •
With seven members of his church
the Methodist parson appeared be
fore the council at a special meet
ing on Thursday evening gnd de
manded Girvin's immediate dis
charge. Burgess Myers told the
council the officer with whom he
had talked intended no overstepping
of authority, saying that if he had
transgressed it was his iirst offense.
He asked that he be given a hear
ing and a chance.
Girvin was summoned tn told ris
side of the story. Four of the six
councilmen voted to let him out.
One of them voted in Girvins favor
and another was absent. Dr. Shrlner
told the councilmen the costume
worn by Hall was not the costume
of a priest, but rather that of a
rabbi. Hail said he first had worn
the costume at a cantanta.
The Rev. Fr. Edward O'Flynn said
yesterday the costume worn by Hall
very much resembled that worn by
monks of the Catholic church, men
living under the rule apart from
the world.

Harrisburg River Front
as Model Makes Big
Vote For Improvements
Harrlsburg's river front develop
ment was the model held up before
i the voters of the Tarentum district,
at their election this week, when the
question of providing a river park
by bond issue was placed before the
public for decision at the polls, ac
cording to an announcement from
the Harrisburg Chamber of Com
merce this morning.
The movement for a bond issue
to provide a river front development
similar to that along the Susque
hanna in Harrisburg was fostered
by the Allegheny Valley Chamber of
Commerce, whose activities embrace
Tarentum, Brackenridge, Natrona,
and their contiguous territories. The
Allegheny valley organization credits
the co-operation furnished by the
Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce as
one of the prime reasons for the
success of the loan issue. The local
Chamber furnished information and
newspaper illustrations for the
western district's newspapers in
order that the popular approval of
the loan could be secured. The let
ter acknowledging the value of this
service received from the Allegheny
Valley Chamber is as follows:
"We were able to use the cuts in
our local papers Monday, and con
tribute a considerable portion of our
success at the election to the views
of the Harrisburg river front im
"You may be interested in learn
ing that while the park issue was
carried, it carried by a very slender
margin, and the help furnished by
your organization may well be con
