should get to work with the digging
Tho cars were decorated with
"Good Roads'' streamers and State and
National flags and presented a gay
sight as they shot across the Market
street bridge on the start down tho
Cumberland Valley. Cloudy skies did
not dampen the spirits of the party, al
though the camera men were hoping
for a little sunlight to make their work
more effective.
The first stop wag near the old Bt.
John's chur.-hyard, on tho Trindle
Springs road, between Harrisburg anil
Mechanicsburg. It was there that the
Governor's party saw the big corps of
road-builders who were recruited bv the
Motor Club of Harrisburg and who had
gone out early in the morning to get on
the job. They had their coats off and
were working with a will, notwithstand
ing blistered hands and, in some cases,
a limited kuowledgc of what picks and
shovels are intended for
Myton as "Slave-driver"
J. Clyde Myton was in charge of
the gang and everybody agreed no
slave driver ever got more work out
of a group of men. There were seven
ty-five workers busy there when tho
Governor arrived, and they greeted
him with a mighty cheer.
The Governor, who wore a cap and
an ordinary gray businoss suit of nat
ty appearance, smiling broadly, jumped
out of the car and grabbed a shovel.
Without removing his coat, he made
the dirt fly for fully five minutes from
a gully at the roadside into the middle
of the highway.
Then, amid more cheers and a few
handshakes, the gubernatorial party
sped on a rnila further, where they ran
across a band of foreign laborers "from
Steelton who had been hired by the
Motor Club of Harrisburg to put' in a
day 's. work with pick and shovel.
Many farmers joined, in the work with
out pay.
There the Governor got out again
ami, after chatting with the foremen,
grabbed a pick, with which he dug
| most vigorously for fully ten minutes,
j without, however, removing his coat.
| The foreign laborers were astonished
: at his energy and each lost the full
[ ten minutes' time as they gazed at him
| with open-mouthed wonder. The ex
| ample he set, however, stimulated the
j paid workmen to work faster for the
J rest of the day. When the Governor
I climbed back into the car the perspira-
I tion was running from every pore and
I the palms of his hands were blistered.
Tries in Vain to Drive Mule
Just east of Mechanicsburg the next
stop was made. A band of volunteers
was hard at work when the official
party arrived. The Governor climbed
out, picked up a shovel and helped
load dirt into a dump wagon. A mo
ment later it came to his attention that
a big sprinkling wagon was partly
mired in a ditch. A farmer was vig
orously exhorting a mule and a horse,
that constituted the team, to pull the
water wagon into the center of the
"I'll show you how to do that,"
shouted the Governor, and he nimbly
climbed to the driver's seat.
"Geddajj," shouted the Chief Ex
ecutive of the State, as he mildly lashed
the stubborn mule with the reins, but
-not an effort was made by that balky
| animal to move the sprinkler. Repeat
ed urgings had 110 effect and the Gov
ernor had to give up. He reluctantly
climbed down from the seat.
" You can't make that mule go,"
drawled a farmer in blue overalls.
''His name is Local Option," to which
the Governor smiled and remarked:
"Wait till 1917."
Greeted by Collage Girls
Irving College, on the outskirts of
Mechauicshurg, was the next stop.
President Campbell, of the college, was
at the gate when the autos pulled up
and he led the Governor to the front
porch of the main college building.
There were assembled 100 very pret
ty college girls and the Governor
doffed his hat and threw a kiss. Ho
shook hands with most of the girls who
swarmed around him and they made a
great fuss over him, all of which vis
ibly pleased His Excellency. They sang
college songs and gave the college
yell, ending with "Brumbaugh! Brum
baugh! Brumbaugh!" and as Governor
departed two of the prettiest of girls,
on each of the Governor's arms, escort
ed him back to the car. The Governor
made a brief speech in which he gal
lantly told the girls how pretty they
The party reached Carlisle at 10.45
o'clock and paused' for a few minutes
before setting off for Newville, 11
miles further down the Cumberland
Valley. The Governor said he was en
joying it all immensely.
Girls Help Governor Dig ,
Newville, May 26.—0n the worst
j stretch of road in this section, extend
| ing over Cemetery Hill, Governor Brum-
I haugh and his party got out of their
1 machines and engaged in real labor
j this afternoon. Newville women helped.
In company with four girls Governor
| Brumbaugh dug a stretch of ditch.
Near Oakville the Governor's party
j stopped and unpacked lunch baskets
j under a big oak tree at the intersec
j tion of three roads. The entire party
j had luncheon. They then embarked on
! t-he last leg of the jouney, through
I township roads in Southern Cumberland
I county. They expected to head for
j home late this afternoon and to arrive
j about 5 o 'clock.
The Motor Club of IHhrrisburg sent j
I its road-building recruits to work on
the Trindle Springs road in Cumber- j
land county this morning, which caused j
a howl from some members who reside
|in Dauphin county, but Cumberland '
county had the greatest call on the
Harrisburg club, for two scores of Me
chanicsburg and Carlisle autoists are
members of the elub.
Hummelstown motorists kicked and
wanted some of the roads in that sec
tion cleared up and there was a kick,
too, from Millersburg. The Motor Club
of Harrisburg has promised to take
these people into consideration next
year should Governor Brumbaugh de
clare a "Good Roads Day," as he will
more than likely do.
Autoists from Camp Hill, Mechan- j
icsburg and Carlisle entered into the j
road-building with a vim and the club-j
was aided greatly by Cumberland
countians. Consequently the local |
blanch of the Pennsylvania Suffrage,
Association, which promised to provide j
luncheons, had little to do to day in !
this county, but a dozen of the local |
■uffragists signified their willingness |
last night to visit their
burg sisters who purposed to serve
luncheon to the road workers at Shire
manstown at 2 o'clock this afternoon.
Mrs. Alice Starr Houck, of Mechanic*-
burg, was in charge of the luncheon.
Governor Down the Valley
Governor Brumbaugh was far down
the Cumberland pike by the time
luncheon was served and the Chief Ex
ecutive did not have the opportunity
oT" " )e uest °' these suffragists.
Bud rage activity wau confined prin
cipally to .the country districts. Ac
cording to a statement issued at the
Hate suffrage headquarters here, tho
women in Allegheny county planned to
feed 15,000 men. In Franklin coun
ty, where Governor Brumbaugh will
probably visit before the day is over,
the women served 40(f lunches.
Waynesboro women provided 200 of
these, i'hambersburg women helped in
j the luncheon problem. Gettysburg
I women helped in Adams county. The
same menu held good the Stale over.
There were plenty of sandwiches, lem
onade, iced tea and coffee.
The Governor is more than eager for
his administration to establish better
roads in Pennsylvania. When it was
seen that the State revenue was such
that roads could not get the amount
ot money that they should have, he de
cided to let the public-spirited people
of the State help and his Good Roads
Pay declaration was made before the
road bills were passed in the Legisla
1 no,OOO Work in State
The hearty co operation throughout
the State has pleased the Governor,
who was compelled, during the recent
session of the Legislature, but one new
road created. This was a Gettysburg
battlefield road. It is estimated 150,-
000 volunteers worked on the roads
The road between Lemovne and New
Cumberland, was overhauled to-day
under the direction of the Motor Club
of Harrisburg, Surveys has been made
by practical road men of all of the
work proposed by the club and when
the workers started out this morning
crushed stone was found in availaiblo
Contracting firms in Harrisburg
and Cumberland county, lent men and
teams. Mechanicsburg motorists collect
ed more than s3>oo for this work and
the New Cumberland committee raised
close to $ 10' O. A stretch of roadway
near Cemetery Hill, Newville, was re
paired and Representative Bbv, of
Newport, headed a committee from
that town that repaired the drcbank
Hill road.
Officials of the Pennsylvania Rail
road Company took an a/ctive interest
in the Good Roads movement. At At
glen many tons of cinder were given
to the township authorities, whilo at
Thorndale and Middletown, nearly a
train load of dirt was donated for use
on roads in adjacent territory.
Volunteers for Lebanon County
Good roads day was generally ob
served throughout Lebanon county. A
holiday was observed in rural districts.
iPiles of crushed stone, material for
rebuilding roads and hundreds of en
thusiastic. workers are on hand.
All of the coal dealers in the county
announced that they would observe a
holiday and placed teams at the dis
posal of the si pervisors.
State Senator E. E. Beidleman, of
lHarrisburg, sent a chectk of $lO to
the County Commissioners.
Work in the Coal Regions
Hszloton, Pa., Ma/ 26.—The succee*
of good roads day in the Lehigh coal
ifield was marred by an early morning
drizzle that threatened to keep tiff un
til night. Despite this many volunteer
laborers and teams were on the job and
