Extensive Repairs to Be Made
in Steel Plant Rolling
Announcement was made at the
office of the steel plant this morn
ing that the 44-inch and 28-inch
rolling mills will be closed down
next week while extensive repairs
are being made. The program for
renovation will include the over
hauling of the steam driving engine.
The engine will be placed in condi
tion so the mills will be able to op
erate until June when a motor drive
engine will be installed.
No employes will be thrown out
of work by the shutdown it was an
nounced. Workmen now on duty at
the 44-inch mill will be shifted to
the one-inch mill which, it is under
stood, will be placed into operation
temporarily. This mill has not been
in operation for some time due to
the lack of orders, it is said. Offi
cials intend to place the men at
other work in the plant so that they
will not lose any time by the shut
down. Some of the workmen will
bo shifted to the 34-inch mill where
two turns will be put on duty.
An order for the motor driven
engine was placed a long time ago
but officials have little hope of hav
ing it in operation before June 1.
The installation of the motor driven
machine is another step toward the
elimination of steam engines in
many of the mills.
Steel Plant to Close
Down on Christmas Day
Following the usual custom the
Steel plant will be closed down tight
on Christmas Day, officials of the
plant said this morning. The coke
ovens and blast furnaces will be in
Operation, it being impossible to let
the fire in these furnaces go out and
resume operations the following day.
Employes of the plant are receiving
their Christmas pay. Issuance of pay
envelopes was started on Thursday
and will continue until Tuesday.

Schwab Speeding at
"Mile-a-Minute" Rate
to Pittsburgh Dinner
Pittsburgh, Dec. 20. —Rather than
disappoint the 3,000 guests at the
dinner to be given by the H. J.
Heinz Company to its employes
and friends to-night, Charles M.
Schwab, steel master, has engaged
a special train to bring him from
New York to this city. Mr. Schwab
and Governor Sproul are to be the
principal speakers.
Desiring to attend the funeral of
a friend in New York this morning,
Mr. Schwab was confronted with the
problem of finding some way to
reach here in time for the dinner.
A special train with a-mile-n-mln
ute schedule was the only way out
of the dilemma. One was engaged
and left New York this morning
after the funeral of Mr. Schwab's
friend. The train is running on
schedule of more than fifty-seven
miles an hour. It will cross the
state of Pennsylvania in less than
seven hours.

Harrisburg Camp to Be Com
manded During 1920 by
Herman Bitner
Harrisburg Camp No. 8. United
Spanish War Veterans are just winding
up a very successful year. At their
last meeting they elected Don Manohan,
camp commander; Herman Bitner,
senior vice-commander; Charles Hants
man, junior Vice-commander; William
C. Morton, officer of the day; Hany
Cluck, officer of the guard, to act in
these capacities for the year of 1920.
It is expected that on Friday, January
2, 1920, when these officers will be in
stalled, William E. Weidner, of Bead
ing, the Department Commander of this
district, will be In attendance and con
duct the installation.
The Camp has taken favorable action
on the suggestion of erecting a com
munity hall for all veteran organiza
tions in connection with the hoped-for
State Armory, and have appointed a
committee to consult with other veter
ans with this end in view.
The recruiting of the new units of the
Pennsylvania National Guard to bo lo
cated in Harrisburg is making very de
cided progress. Captain Wilbar, of Co.
D., Captain Smith of the Supply Com
pany and Captain Meredith of the
Headquarters Company of the Bth
Begiment as well as Captain Shoe
maker of the Governor's Troop all re
port that enlistments are coming In
rapidly and that the character of the
men enlisting is far above the average.
The "has beens" of the late war, ex
guardsmen, members of the Pennsyl
vania Beserve Militia and brand new
rookies are all showing real interest In
the organization and it augurs well for
Harrisburg's well established reputa
tion in military affairs. It should be a
source of definite pride to every Har
risburger to know that its citizens are
ready to back our Uncle Sam in time
of trouble.
New 28th Division to
Be Well Organized by
Middle of January
Samuel \V. Fleming, Jr., Lieuten
ant Colonel of the Eighth Infantry,
National Guard of Pennsylvania, has
just returned from Philadelphia
where he has been attending a con
ference of Regimental Commanders
of the new State forces. Major
General Price, commanding the
Twenty-eighth Division, called this
meeting in order to have General
Carter, U. S. A. Chief of the Militia
Bureau, explain to all, the plans of
the War Department in connection
with the reorganization of the Guard.
Most encouraging reports were re
ceived from the various Regimental
Commanders. If all plans progress
within the next few weeks as they
have in past, the entire division will
be on a sound basis by the middle of
January. General Carter stated that
the War Department' was heartily
in sympathy with General Prico anil
the Twenty-eighth Division would
give all the support possible. He
stated that all supplies and equip
ment was ready and would be Issued
just as soon as the State forces were
ready for mustering. General Car
ter expressed his pleasure in the ex
cellent choice of officers for the
Twenty-eighth. He was also greatly
pleased when told that the enlisted
personnel was composed for the
most part of veterans of the past
war. It was the general belief of the
officers attending the conference
that universal training would soon
be adopted by Congress and that
members of the Guard would be ex
empted from this training.

Real Estate Operators and
Contractors Vary Opinions
For Work of New Year
Optimism and pessimism are evident
in about equal amounts in the opin
ions of various local real estate men
and contractors for Harrisburg's
spring building operations. From an
swers received yesterday in request
for an outlook on 1920, the greatest
enthusiasm vied with the dullest des
A representative of the Brlnton-
Packer Company declared that no new
work on houses will be started now,
and that there is practically no hope
for spring building either. In fact,
ho was of the opinion that if any
thing, the outlook for spring was
even gloomier than at present.
On the other hand, the Mentzer-
Bomberger Company, contractors, de
clare that building operations will be
Immense; that the scarcity of labor
Is the only thing which prevents them
from going ahead with the work now.
This company operates within a hun
dred miles radius, and are only wait
ing for better weather in order to
begin their building in Palmyra, Leb

G. W. Milsy. of the Pennsylvania
Realty Company was of the opinion
that building: ope-aJons would

so chaotic, said Mr. Miller, that one

The consensus of opinion seems to
be that the prevailing unrest, tremen
dous costs of material, high wages,
and lack of proper Government super
vision are holding back building op

chance for logical reasoning in an at
tempt at forecasting.

Local Real Estate Man
Forecasts Spring Situation
Real estate activities in Harrisburg
and vicinity this winter and the com
ing spring seasons will unquestion
ably be watched with keen interest on
the part of tho real estate promoter,
and by that is meant the builder, the
contractor, the owner, and the broker
—as well as the more unpretentioU3
speculator, the tenant, who by recent
bitter must have defin
itely set his mind toward the happy
goal of becoming his own landlord.
As the housing situation in Harris
burg has never before gone through
such an acute stage, and the question
naturally arises: "Will the situation
be relieved the coming spring?" This!
question has come to the writer's at
tention, as it probably has to the av
erage real estate promoter, time and
time again. Ap the writer sees it,
after a careful survey of local con
ditions, the housing situation in gen
eral cannot be greatly relieved in
the very near future, when one has in
mind the comparatively small
ing operations now in progress.

Aside from the erection of new
homes we are face to face with the
abnormally congested situation which
prevails, and has prevailed for tho
past two years, throughout the city
and vicinity, with no surplus of
homes to be had for renting purposes.
To be sure, a large percentage of pri
vate homes have been converted into
either temporary rooming-houses, or
apartments, which has been the only
practical solution for relief. It must
be remembered th'at all tenants are
not in a financial position to oven
