HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Harrisburg will pause to-night and to-morrow to
have a good time celebrating the arrival of the
new year. There will be a mummer's parade to
morrow which is expected to be funnier and more
elaborate than anything of the kind ever before
attempted here, and the usual forms of merry,
making annually associated with the holiday.
Conditions among the poor this winter.—due in
greatest degree to the devastating effect both at
home and abroad of the great war in Europe,—
have resulted in an unusual drain 011 the resources
of charitably disposed persons in this city and have
had the effect of compelling a large percentage of
the population to face necessity in its sternest form.
Such a condition necessarily influences earnest men
and women to place more stress than usual 011 the
"serious things of life and it may be held by some
that holiday levity is out of place in this particular
New Year's season.
Harrisburg people, however, have the right for
the time to put aside the serious things and enter
with the usual spirit of levity into the celebration
of the New Year's arrival. A little fun on occasion
doesn't hurt anybody in any circumstances. On
tiie contrary it helps, and certainly Harrisburgers,
who have denied themselves so much this winter to
meet the extraordinary appeals to charity, deserve
to get all the fun they can out of the holiday and
to enjoy the happiest sort of a Happy New Year.
HOW BEST TO AID PUPILS
During the sessions of the State Educational As
sociation, which closed to-day in this city, many
good suggestions lor arranging public school
courses were advanced and convincing declarations
concerning advantages to pupils of certain
branches of study were made. The assumed as
well as the actual needs of the boys and girls were
carefully considered and speakers advocated only
what they deemed best for the children's interests.
Now that the debating is over the teachers pres
ent who have fresh in their minds, for example, the
various arguments in support of the teaching of
Greek and Latin as opposed to the different decla
rations favoring concentration on the so-called
more practical subjects, would do well in returning
to their schools after the holidays to start a discus
sion of the matter with their pupils. The boys and
girls in the Grammar grades, particularly, need to
know something about the advantages which differ
ent high school studies hold in store for them that
each one may choose the course, when the time for
selection comes, which will be best suited to his or
her inclinations and necessities.
While children are in the elementary schools
their studies are mapped out for them without
regard to their separate preferences, but when they
are about to enter high school they are given
options in arranging their studies. In this city, for
instance, students about to start high school work
can choose first between Technical and Central,
then between the various courses offered in any one
of the schools, and finally between subjects desig
nated in a particular course.
If a young person about to follow one of the
many possible courses in the local high schools is
to use good judgment in making selections, that
person must know the merits of the different
branches of study offered for choice. Vet there are
grammar school students soon to be called upon
to select their high school studies, who have not

A KING S WISE PRECAUTION
The King of Denmark will not hold a New Year's
reception this year for the members of the diplo
i matic corps in the Danish capital, as has been the
custom. lie is much too wise a kins* to invite to
his palace for a good time the representatives of /ile
governments which are at war. It might not be
safe, and he does not want to do anything for which
he later might be sorry.
Having canceled the usual dinner, the king will
receive greetings from the different diplomats
through the Norwegian'miuister. aud will later en
tertain the envoys in separate groups. He will,
thus prevent the diplomats of England, France,
Belgium and Russia from coming in contact with
the representatives of Germany ami Austria-Hun

There is no telling what arguments might spring
up should all those dignitaries get together. If

tion. were he to give one. and he has accordingly
called off the affair in the interests of his country's
neutrality. Yet it is also probable that he realizes
that even if he had sent out invitations to the
annual reception, the diplomats of opposing na
tionalities would not be likely to attend, and that
the better course would therefore be not to have a
celebration at all.
SOLVING THE TEACHER-MOTHER PROBLEM
In grappling with the problem of the teacher
mother, which so long has been unsolved in New
York City, a special committee of the Board of
Education in the metropolis has just made a recom
mendation. the adoption of which, with a possible
amendment or two. may not only do justice to the
teacher-mothers there but also point the way for
the employment of married women as teachers in
communities that do not now regard it as practical
to permit married women to teach. The commit
tee's report recommends:
The Board of Superintendent* shall have power to grant
leave of absence without pay of any kind to principals and
teachers for a period of not to exceed one year for pur
poses of study or restoration of health or for a period of
two years for bearing and rearing children.
The report further sets forth that every member
of the teaching or supervising staff shall apply for
leave of absence when motherhood is contemplated
and "failure to do so shall be deemed insubordina
There are many communities in which the idea
of married women teaching is strongly opposed, but
there are many persons who take the opposite view
and who are strongly in favor of letting down the
bars to this form of employment for women who
are now disqualified for the work of teaching simply
because they are married and bear children, —the
noblest function of womanhood.
The best amendment that we can suggest to the
| resolution as quoted above is that the word "with
j pay" be substituted for those "without pay" in
the opening sentence.

Checking Up on Auto Flnw
Under rhe automobile law in Penn
! sylvania. when an autoist is notified to
i appear before a Justice of the Peace,
i alderman or other magistrate aud, on
appearing, is fined for a violation of
the statute, he has no means of know
mi whether or not the money thus col-
I levied ever reaches the State treasury,
as provided by law. It is a warranted
assumption that Justices of the Peace,
I aldermen and other magistrates in
i Pennsylvania are. almost without ex-
I ception, honest and able officials, but
| in cases where dishonesty does prevail
and where, on account of rush of busi
ness, lack of time, forgetfulness and
other reasons, returns are not made
there is each year a sum of no mean
proportion which is not turned in. To
prevent the possibility of such fines be-
I ing withheld from the State. K. A.
Jones, second Deputy State Highway
Commissioner in charge of the automo
bile division, has suggested a plan to
check up the fines imposed. The plan
outlined bv Mr. Jones is as follows:
. • •
Mr. E. A. Jones' Plan
"I would suggest that every autoist
fined taiie a receipt in duplicate for the
payment of the same and forward the
duplicate to the secretary of his auto
mobile club, or. if not a member of a
club, then to a person designated by the
State Highway Department, so that a
recotrd may be kept of all such fines
and the State Highway Department
will be in a position to check them
when the official reiport is made to the
department bv the officers who imposed
the fine. This will keep a check of the
honest returns on ail tines collected for
the violation of the law thereby giving
this department, as well as the parties
paying the tine, the satisfaction of
knowing that moneys paid by them had
gone to the place designated by the
law. I believe by the co-operation of
the secretaries of automobile clubs and
its members, a complete check-up sys
tem can be established and a correct
accounting for all tines thus be made
a matter of State record, thereby pre
venting any chance of dishonesty and
removing the possibility of uncalled
for, or unjust arrests."

that the town of Stelnbach has been
entered and half of It captured. So
far as the French statement shows,
there have been no other changes of
note in the west, although several small
advances are said to have been made.
A report from Russian sources indi
cates that the defenders of the Oalician
fortress of Przemysl. which has been
under siege by the Russians for several
weeks, have been reduced to desperate
straits. It is said that an Austrian
aeroplane brought down while attempt
ing to enter Przemysl waa found to be
loaded with food. German reports
some time ago, however, said that Prze
mysl was stocked with provisions suffi
cient for one year.
From the fragmentary and conflict
ing official reports of the war to-day
two main tendencies are observed. In
the west, along the entire front from
Alsace to the North Sea the allies are
exerting steady pressure and according
to their claims, some of which have not
been disputed by Germany, they have
made a slow progress almost every
where. In the east the defeat of the
Austrians in Gallcla is not denied and
the German forces in Poland appear to
have found it extremely difficult to
continue their advance toward Warsaw.
Rerlin states that further progress is
being made, but Petrograd believes the
German offensive has broken down.
An official communication from Pet
rograd indicates that one of tlie most
sanguinary battles of the war, in pro
portion to the numbers involved, has
taken place In the trans-Caucasus. The
Russians Btates that a Turkish column
was dispersed by artillery and that the
Turks lost have of their number.
The Japanese foreign office says that
no nation has requested that a Japan
ese array be sent to Europe. It is under
stood in Tokio that France and Russia
favor the project, but that Great Rrit
ain hesitates on account of economic
and political difficulties.

other place, en route to Europe, the for

"Japan has not been approached by

It is learned from other sources here
that France and probably Kussia are
favorable to the project 'of seuding
Japanese troops to Europe but that
England hesitates to ask for Japan's
hrlp. The financial phase of the mat
ter, it is stated, could be arranged but
the economic and political questions in

Meantime frequent meetings are
called in Tokio by partisans of the pro

BLUEJACKETS AS HEROES
IN TAKING OF ST. GEORCES
Paris, Dec. 31, 6.20 A. M.—» How the
heroic self-sacrifice of six French blue
jackets made possible the capture of St.
Georges, a town less than two miles
from Nieuport, is described by the
"Matin's" war correspondent in Flan
ders. He says
"The attackers had driven the Ger
mans from the advance trenches, but,
taking refuge in the houses in the vil
lage, the Germans soon placed their
assailants in a difficult position. The
situation of a force of Belgians iso
lated on a strip of land surrounded by
a flood became critical and the artil
lery alone was able to affect anything
against the enemy. The British bat
teries at Ramscappele tried, but their
shells burst over the French.
''Six bluejackets then hoisted a 3-
inch gun on a large punt and poled
along the canal behind the village, run
ning the gauntlet of the German rifles.
As one was hit another took the pole
and continued until he in turn fell
stricken. The sixth man was mortally
wounded as, with a last push, he sent
the ipunt to the bank where the French
advance guard was waiting.

umphantly took possession of the heap
