Happenings of a Day in Central Pennsylvania
Burgess Dietz Will Urge
Council to Employ a
Lemoyne, Pa., Nov. 17. —Declar-
ing this borough Is open to unli
■ censed salesmen and that rowdyism
1 Is reigning supreme because of the
: lack of police protection. Burgess
I Dr. Walter L<. Dietz to-day said he
will go before the new council to
urge the employment of an officer
to patrol the borough.
, The burgess said many complaints
■ had been made during the past year
; from residents who said they havo
been "short measured" by hucksters
and salesmen and that their win
dows were broken by children
throwing stones. There were re
ports of other misconduct.
S Burgess Dietz said: "The chil
dren of tho borough carry on this
* rowdyism continually without being
molested. I have been having many
complaints from residents who say
' that children coming home from
school throw stones at each other
and sometimes residents complain of
window panes broken by children.
Furthermore, motorists take advan
tage of the lax laws here and use
' the main thoroughfares as a speed
j way, caring little whether they
* drive on the right or left side of
i the street. Complaints come to me
occasonally about boys using the
pavements for bicycles, endangering
■ pedestrians. The air rifle is causing
' quiet a little trouble also. Many
housewives are compaining about
f being short measured from wagons
1 on the street, many of these sales
men are going about town without
licenses, but I am helpless to put
an end to it because I have no one
to look up these conditions.
"X went before council when as
suming my duties as burgess, but
they said that with these conditions
growing worse daily the demand is
greater and should be met in some
way by the council. I feel that if
a policeman would be employed to
patrol the streets of the borough
between the hours of 4 and 11 p. m.
we could assure residents proper pro
tection. Some businesi men are
backing me in a mere for protec
tion and I am going to urge council
to provide it."

McConnellsburg Will Have
Memorial to Its Men
in Service
Residents of McConnellsburg and
Fulton county generally are plan
ning a lasting memorial to hojior
the boys who went forwnrd to fight
for freedom.
, An open air Memorial Forum.
! uniquo In Pennsylvania munictpall
j ties, will be laid out on the plot of
J ground adjoining the Fulton county
court house in McConnellsburg, In
accordance with the preliminary
plans drawn by the Bureau of Mu
nicipalities of the Pennsylvania De-'
partment of Internal Affairs and ap
proved by tho committee in charge
lof the selection of a memorial.
Afembers of the committee ap
i pealed to James F. Woodward,
secretary of internal affairs, and J.
Herman Knisely, chief of the Bu
reau of Alunicipalities, for assistance
in making plans for the memorial
and Karl B. Lohmann, landscape
designer in the bureau, was assigned
to the task.
Air. Lohmann went to AlcCon
nellsburg, met the committee and
visited the section in which devel
opment was planned. Mr. Lohmann,
following a study of the area, de
vised the idea of an open air Me
morial Forum and when he returned
to McConnellsburg a few days ago
with the idea worked out in draw
ings, the committee lost no tinro In
giving its approval and committee
men asserted that they will see to
it that the actual work is pushed
along so that the forum can be dedi
cated on Alemorial Day next year.
The plot of ground adjoining the
court house has a natural slope and
will make an ideal place for union
church services, concerts, lectures
and entertainments of varied char
acter during the summer months.
At the bottom of the slope it is pro
posed to erect a platform walled up
with native stone. The space be
tween tho walls would be filled with
earth and sown with grass seed. Bits
of shrubbery around the back of
the platform and on the sides would
furnish natural scenery. Shrubbery
on either side of the platform would
also be planted in such way as to
form places where speakers could
remain until ready to go on the plat
form. The edges of the entire plot
of ground would also be covered
with shrubbery and trees and at
other points would be placed in or
der low bushes or shrubs. The en
trance to the forum would be at the
corner closest the front of the court
house and at that point Air. Loh
mann proposes a huge boulder
taken from the mountains of Fulton
county be placed. On It would be a
tablet stating that the Alemorial
Forum is an evidence of the esteem
with which the people of McCon
nellsburg and the county hold the
soldiers of Fulton county and ex
plaining that the forum is a gift of
the people to the world war heroes,
and heroes of the Civil War are also
to be remembered In the construc
tion of the memorial. While the
memorial idea was planned with the
Idea of honoring world war heroes,
it was proposed that honor be also
paid other war men and accordingly
the forum will be dedicated to the
soldiers of all wars from the Civil
War to the present time.
The square in AlcConnellsburg on
which the court house fronts will
also be improved in accordance with
plans drawn by Mr. Lohmann. It is
proposed that a grass plot on which
w, ' l . b< ' Planted a few trees be laid
out in the form of a square and that
plot W ° around the grass
Members of the committee at
McConnellsburg suggested, too, that
the names of all soldiers in the
county be Inscribed on bronze plates
house fr ° nt ° f the court
The Memorial Forum and the de
velopment in the square win be paid
for largely by public subscriptions
and already the committee has re
ceived contributions from persons
Interested. It is proposed to solicit
the ent re county so that every per
v°" Ü be given an opportunity of
