Stcclton Residents Complain
ing About Miserable Con
dition of Thoroughfare
Residents of the borough are com
plaining about the miserable condi
tion of a stretch of road between th >
borough limits and the Baldwin
cemetery. This road is the only one
leading to cemetery and is used
mostly by automobiles, almost ex
clusively for funerals.
It is understood that the road is
under the jurisdiction of the super
visors of Swatara township and that
r.o repairs have been made on this
stretch of highway for a long time.
It is a section of a "back road" to
Oberlin which has not been used for
some years, residents say, because it
is In such poor shape that it is not
Local residents are not concerned
about the road beyond the cemetery
entrance but feel that some action
should be taken by authorities to
make repairs to the road leading into
the cemetery. The stretch of road is
about three-fourths of a mile long
and is considered almost impassable.
Even though it is in this condition,
residents say, they are compelled to
use it when a funeral is held.
Recently during the extremely wet
weather the road was in such condi
tion that automobile drivers using
the road when a funeral was held
declare it was almost impossible to
keep the machines in the road and
furthermore the thoroughfare was
practically impassable.
business men to-day declared
their intentions to see that the road
is put into good condition and will
use every means available to accom
plish their ends.
Many Attend the Funeral
of Prof. L. E. McGinnes
The funeral of Prof. L. E. McGin
nes, superintendent of the borough
schools and known throughout the
State through his connections with
State educational societies for years,
held in the First Presbyterian Church
this afternoon, was largely attended.
The Rev. C. B. Segelken. pastor of
the First Presbyterian Church, offici
ated. Burial was made in the Bald
win cemetery. Prominent educators
and acquaintances of the late super
intendent attended the services as
well as a large number of local resi
dents. As a tribute to the late promi
nent educator school war closed dur

A beautiful floral robe presented by
school children and teachers was
among the scores of remembrances.

RE-ELECT THOMAS ißailroads Show Activity;
Coal trains Are Many
11/ ilijLilfjS Freight activity on railroads is
w mvuuAui again in evidence, and if the motive
power holds out, officials look for
record-breaking shipments between
now and January 1. On the Pennsy
yesterday it was almost one con
tinuous run of soft coal trains east.
The Heading picked up, having been
holding to about 500 cars a day.
Now it looks like twice as many
each day. Considering the cold
weather engines have been holding
their own. If the temperature does
not get down below zero, and good
coal is furnished for all engines, en
gineers and iiremen say there will
be good results.
The restoration of the trains that
had been annulled because of the
coal shortage as well as that of the
parlor car service, was hailed with
delight to-day by the patrons of the
Pennsylvania railroad. As each of
the restored trains left the station
during the dny there V'cre many
people availing themselves of the
The demand for parlor car ac
commodations is extraordinary, as
the traffic grows heavier with the
approach of the holiday season.
During the present week many of
the schools over the country will
close down for the' holidays and
this will have a tendency to crowd
the trains in all directions.
