ger will occupy a prominent place
on tlie stage when the "Spirit of
Christmas," portrayed by'little Miss
Geraldlno Powell, 325 I'effer street,
sets tlie pageant in motion witli .a
wave of her magic wand. There they
will receive tho three Wise Men of
the East, portrayed in this case by
prominent llarrisburgers, who will
be guided to tlie lowly manger by the
Star of Bethlehem, shining overhead.
These Wise Men, bearing frank in
cense and myrrh, will make obeis
ance and do.homage to the New-born
King, as in the story of the long ago
Christmas morning, n tlie. distance,
the ten shepherds with their sheep
will add tlie fitting climax of reality
to tlie picture. In this case the
shepherds will be well-known llar
risburgers, and the sheep will be
products of Dauphin county also,
having been secured from the Bon
nymead farms.
Two other factors wliieh will en
ter largely into the success of the
tableaux will he the musical num
bers find accompaniment, and tlie
electrical effects. These electrical
effects will culminate in a display in
which the words "Joy to the World"
will blaze forth from an electric
sign while the enrol by tlie same
name is rendered liy the Municipal
Band and tlie several choruses.
Besides tlie instrumental music by
tlie Municipal Band, which has vol
unteered its services for tlie oc
casion, there will be vocal numbers
by a chorus from the Wednesday

secured by tlie Department of Spe
cial Activities of the School Board,
anil the City Choir of 150 voices.
The City Park Department also is
co-operating in all the arrangements,
while a number of civic organizations
are behind tlie movement.
The pageant is designed to dem
onstrate the real slgnilicance ol
Christmas, at the same time fur
nishing a pleasant means for a com
munity observance of the religious
holiday that will appeal lo specta

iters Over Bumpy Bond
lo Tost Springs
At noon to-day a new Model 1
overland accomplished a demon- j
I stralion that is new to Harritthurg-j
i cis. With live passengers iti the car,;
driven hy Carl Hanson, president of j
|the Overland-I larrisbnrg Company, |
j it climbed tiie front steps leading to j
the main entrance of the Capitol
from Bt.ite street.
| Making a flying start, the car was
driven up over the curb and on up ;
I the steps, reaching I lie top without
a stop or a mishap anil .due to the
I new "Triplex Spring" suspension
that is an exclusive Overland tea- ;
j ture, with very little jar.
j This new spring suspension, known
as the three point spring suspension, [
is claimed to give greater riding
comfort over exceedingly rough;
roads, negotiating bumps and ruts
'that are considered almost impossi
! hie.
it was for tlie purpose of testing
out the springs that the demon-,
| stralion of climbing the Capitol steps
[was staged to-day. These steps are
| long and steep and the curh at (he
| State street entrance is of the ordi
) nary height. With the snow on the
ground, the Overland started out
I without u slip and went right at the
steps and on up without a skid. The
steps had not been cleaned of the
I snow that fell on litem all day yes
terday which made the trip ever
! harder.
[ Other demostrations have been
| made front time to time with the
, new Overland to tost out the new
. Triplex Springs and each time they
I have conic through successfully.
