PRACTICAL RELIEF WORK
Although it was only in the latter part of last
week that actual relief work was started by the
Home and War Relief Association, practical results
of this excellent enterprise already have come to
This organization, with its several divisions of
workers, aims to give relief in two directions at the
same time. With funds placed at its disposal it I
buys in Harrisburg materials which it gives to de
serving poor people of this city—those who are I
vouched for by the Associated Charities —and pays
these poor people to make good, substantial cloth
ing which will be shipped to the Belgian war suf
Thus a double purpose is served. Work is given
t« the poor of Harrisburg, who are enabled in this
way to obtain needed assistance without becoming
objects of charity, and the innocent war victims
abroad are to become the recipients of much-needed
By reason of the limited financial resources of j
the association it has been decided that a limit of
$3 will be placed on the amount to be paid out for
work done by one person in a given week. This 1
does not mean, however, that a week is required to
accomplish the work for which $3 is paid. One
woman, who on Saturday received $3 worth of
wDrk to do, went to the association's headquarters,
7 South Front street, this morning with all the work
The association's plan has got a good start. It
is the most practical sort of relief work that we
know of. It is worthy of the financial support of
all persons who can afford to give.
SOME SELF-EVIDENT FACTS
A reviewer of a recently published manual on
"The Practical t se of Books and Libraries" good
naturedly objects to the author's stubborn practice
all through the volume of explaining self-evident
facts. Although this author assumes that his read
ers are high school students and would-be librarians,
he insults their intelligence by informing them that
"a dictionary is an alphabetical list of words of a
language, with their derivations and meanings."
He evidently takes nothing for granted. Going
on the principle of the dictionary itself, which de
fines in detail the commonest words, he demon
strates everything carefully as he goes along. Un
like many writers of text books, he leaves nothing
fo the imagination. He is unrelentingly thorough.
"To use an index," he explains, "look for the
name of what is wanted in its alphabetical place,
as in a dictionary or a telephone directory."
In order to make this more clear, it should be
added that if the name of what is wanted cannot
be found in the dictionary the individual's spelling
is manifestly defective and he ought to take a
course in the subject. In case of the telephone
directory, however, he can promptly call up the
information clerk and worry her about it.
Then too. in addition to the information that
"the title of a book usually gives a hint of the
book's contents," we are led to remark that the
name of a book's author generally intimates who
wrote the book.
PATRIOTISM IN BRITISH WAR LOAN
There is significance, beyond the emphasis it
places on (he fact of the wealth and financial re-
of the British people, in the announcement
HARRISBURG STAR-INDEPENDENT. MONDAY EVENING* DECEMBER 21, 1914.
recently made that the new British war loan of
$1,750,000,000 was oversubscribed by more than
$100,000,000. It indicates the patriotism of the Brit
While uo one, perhaps, would question the se
curity of a British war loan or would regard it as
anything except a safe investment, the rate of in
terest on such an issue is for below what could be
obtained on many other securities that are recog
nized as "gilt edge." Indeed, as pointed out by
a British financial authority, the $1,750,000,000 loan
just floated was put out at an interest rate that is
l l 2 per cent, lower than that paid on the bonds
most recently issued in German to finance the war.
Yet the English people are patriotic enough to go
ilowu into their pockets ami produce $100,000,000
more than the amount asked for when they could
have put all the amount ot\ the subscriptions in
other securities that would have yielded them far
There are different kinds of patriotism than that
displayed by brave soldiers on the field* of battle.
One of these is that shown by the persons in Great
Britain who provide the "sinews of war" in the
form of British sovereigns.
Rumors from some sources have been circulated,
though of doubtful origin, that Great Britain, with
her lack of a system of compulsory military service,
has had sonic difficulty in obtaining all the recruits
she needs for the army in the present conflict. The
fact that the British people have so freely lent
money to the government in the crisis of the war,
when they could have invested it to so much more
advantage elsewhere, —say in America where big
rates of interest are offered now on high grade
stocks and bonds. —may be taken as proof that,
even if it is true that there has been*difficulty in
getting enough British subjects to enlist in the
fighting forces, it has not been through any lack
CHEATING IN COLLEGE
A sophomore and a freshman have been sus
pended from Pennsylvania College, Gettysburg, ac
cused of practicing dishonesty in class work. The
one was dropped from the institution for a period
of three weeks for "horsing" at an examination:
that is for sneaking text books or perhaps some
helpful notes into the, examination hall and using
the same in answering the test questions. The other ,
was suspended for the rest of the school year be- j
cause he submitted English themes not of his own
composition and repeatedly denied that he was
practicing the deception.
It appears that the English professor who brought
about the suspensions,—a new man on the faculty
of the college,—has his own ideas about dishonesty
in class work and has had the backbone to take nec
essary action in this matter even at the risk of
becoming unpopular with the student body. The
other members of the faculty have thus far stood
by him, according to accounts.
The students seem to have been greatly agitated
by the suspensions. Do they not have student gov
ernment, and do they not have the honor system?
Why should the faculty presume so far is to take
into its own hands the punishing of the offending
young men? The student body granted that the
two men were guilty, ■"but lhat they were the only
ones punished among many who have been guilty
of similar offenses. - '
That was an unfortunate admission to make. If
dishonesty is so prevalent at the college, it is about
time that some of the guilty ones be punished, as
examples. The law never reaches all violators, but
those whom it does catch it punishes for the effect
it will have on uncaught offenders.
The interesting thing about the entire affair is
that the students in their indignation meeting pro
tested loudly against alleged injustice to two of their
fellows, but said nothing, apparently, against the
practice of cheating which started the trouble. Tf
the students wanted to take any action following
the suspensions, they should have got together and
declared in one voice against the practice of "hors
ing," thus upholding the faculty in its just action.
That would have been the manly thing to do.

garden seed. He sent back by return mail a generous sup

there were snow spits when Governor
Peunypacker took office. When Governor

was the coldest ever experienced on
