LET OFF WITH - A_FINE OF $25 (Continued From First Page) aged 21, arrested Saturday night on the charge of furnishing liquor to soldiers, was let off with a $25 fine at police court yesterday. , The tine was on a disorderly con duct charge. Alderman Householder presided during Mayor Keister's ab sence. When arrested, a half pint of whisky was taken out of Sambs' pocket. He was arrested in a side room of the dance floor at Thirteenth and Market streets, and another empty half pint whisky flask was in the room. Two lieutenants from the Tank Corps st Gettysburg wtre locked in the room with him. Locked in Room Patrolman Rineer made the arrest. He declared that he tried to open the door and found it locked. He peered through a hole where a Yale lock had been taken out, and saw Sambs pass a half pint flask to one of the lieutenants, and also saw the lieu tenant raise it to his lips and drink it. When ho opened the door the flask was standing nearby, empty, and a filled flask was in Sambs' pocket. • "Be a good fellow and don't arrest me, because it'll get me five years," the patrolman testified Sambs begged him when he placed him under ar rest. Dancing Instructor Sullivan, who is on duty at the dance hall dance nights, declared that the lieutenants came to the dance hall perfectly sober, as did Sambs. When arrested Sanibs and the officers were both un der the influence of liquor, it was testified. SUmbs had been seen to go out of the dance hall two or three times during the evening, while the soldiers had remained. Because he noticed the effect of the liquor on the soldiers and the brief absences of Sambs, the dancing instructor called the officer's attention to the fact. Not There to Dance Mr. Sullivan also testified tp the fact he had found still another half pint bottle in the side room before Sambs was arrested. Patrolman Rineer testified, and Sambs admitted, that Sambs had never been on the floor before and could not dance, and associated with the soldiers all evening. Sambs said he accompanied a crowd of friends to the dance. Counsel for the defense pleaded that the unsupported word of the patrolman was not sufficient to con vict Sanibs in Federal Court and urged that he be lined on the charge of disorderly conduct. The informa tion said that Sambs had been dis orderly and had furnished liquor to a soldier. Counsel declared that the evidence was circumstantial. "No it is not; we have facts here," Alder man Householder answered. City "Under Suspicion" He then began a dissertation on the seriousness of the offense, and begged the attorney to realize the seriousness of It. Before imposing a fine he asked twice if the attorney realized the serious nature of Sambs' offense, and reminded him that "the city is under suspicion for this very thing." After thus apologetically leading the way to the sentence. Alderman Householder imposed a line of $25, and let the prisoner off. He remind ed him that he could consider him self lucky he was not turned over to the government, but did not add on what grounds he failed to turn the prisoner over to the Federal au thorities when he had so much evi dence.

Three Hundred and Eight eenth Field Signal Battalion. Ser geant Loomis is a popular young .Mlllersburg man. Hun Line Menaced From Soissons to the Aisne [Continued From Pngc One.] tured 500 Germans in the sector attacked. North of Roye the French have taken the Bracquemont and Fendu woods and have occupied the greater part of Beauvraignes, according to advices. It also is reported they have made progress to the southeast of Beuvraignes. Advance Is Rapid The attack of the French yesterday between the Matz and the Oise was on a front of twelve miles and although the Germans offered a stubborn resistance the French made an advance of about a mile. At 6 o'clock last evening the battle line ran as follows: La Pravim farm, which is northwest of Fresnieres, Arbe-de- Canny, the western outskirts of Lassigny, La Rue des Boucandes, the southern outskirts of Orval, Le Hamel, the southern outskirts of Dreslincourt and Pimprez. Though the advance was a small one, it is regarded as im portant as it carried the French line further down the slopes of Lassigny massif. TJie French also moved up the valley of theOise, the line being between five and six miles from Noybn. CITY MILKMEN AGREE TO ZONE SYSTEM HERE Plans of State Conservation Expert to Be Followed by Dealers As a result of the meeting of tne city's milk men in Maennerchor Hall last evening it is likely the city will be zoned within the near future for ,milk distribution. J. William Bowman, appointed by the Daupllin County Food Admin istrator to work out the zoning prob lem with the dealers, presided at fho ' meeting. L. A. Sterick, president of the Retail Milk Dealers Associa- j uon, and another representative of the food administration, also were at the mefeting. To Act Immediately As a result of the meeting prac tical steps to make the zoning com plete within a short time will be taken at once. The plans of Dr. Clyde L. Kivtg, state milk conserva tion expert, will be followed by the milk men. Blanks were distributed on which the milk men will list their routes.) .Each milk man will list his route! at once and submit the list to Mr. j Bowman, who will send the tabulat-1 ed lists to Dr. King when they havel all been received by him, then Dr. I King will work out the zones for, the city. When Dr. King's zoncj plans are returned the milk meni will begin to distribute milk on the same basis as newspapers are deliv ered, from door to dorr. The saving in time and materials j through the zoning methods was ap-| parent to the local food administra tor after Dr. King's visit to this city. Donald McCormick, food adminis-! trator. appointed Mr. Bowman at j once to look into the plan and work j with the milk men. Dealers' Vote Unanimous The vote of the dealers to accept j the zoning plan was unanimous. Mr. j Bowman expressed himself gratified j at their ready response to the re-1 quest of the food administration. < The change in routes will mean that) many of the dealers will have to give! up some of their oldest customers | for the common good. A resolution was-adopted unanl-J mously expressing confidence in the! food administration and agreeing to 1 co-operate in the plan for efficient \ distribution of the milk supply. NEWPORT Earl E.

Butler Troy has returned to his home at Harrisburg, after visiting, his aunt, Mrs. B. F. Page. Mrs. A. S. Whitekettle and grand son, Randolph Whitekettle, are visit ing the family of L. C. Smith, at Al toona. HIGH SCHOOLS OPEN FOR MILITARY DRILL (Continued From First' Page) curing competent instructors still exists. Lieutenant Lesher, head of the Harrisburg jtpcruiting district, said that while they were willing to take charge of instruction at Harrisburg secondary schools, a recent War De partment ruling will prevent them from detailing members of the re cruiting staff to do this work. East spring permission was grant ed officials of the station to institute a system of training at Technical High school, but because of the, late ness of the tender and acceptance of the offer, no steps were taken to es tablish the system then. The system to have been established at the In- Has No Sign of Indigestion Now Mrs. Wivler Says Tanlac llrought Immediate Relief From Stomach Trouble PRAISES IT UNSTINTEDLY "So long as Tanlac is obtainable, there is no excuse for anyone suffer ing from stomach trouble," savs ! Mrs. Catharine Wivler, of 310 Bessn | mer street, Steelton, Pa. . | "For a long time I suffered the j tortures of chronic indigestion. Eventually this condition poisoned i my whole system so that I suffered ; terribly with rheumatic aches and j pains, constant headaches and rest- : less nights. "I began taking Tanlac, having ! read about It in the papers. Then relief came quickly. I began to feel ' better almost immediately and f 1 can truthfully say that I have en- j tirely recovered my health now. j "I have no signs of Indigestion. : my appetite is good. I have no more ' headaches and those aches and ' pains have gone. I feel invigorated j and rested and cannot prals? this; Hplendid medicine too highly." Tanlac Is now being introduced I here ?t Gorgas' Drug Stote. I stitution would have consisted iarge ly of "sitting up" exercises. Much of the more rigorous parts of military training would have been omitted. While a system of military train ing, through the recommendation of the War Department, has been inau gurated in practically all of the col leges and universities of the country,; no steps have been taken for the es-j tablishment of a similar system in: secondary schools. Commenting on! this, Dr. Downes said, "We will be glad to co-operate fully with the War Department in any recommen dation that it may make for military lor ohv icsl trai iln • fr s' rone ir< schools and will be only too .glad to do so." Harrisburg Academy officials have taken the initiative in the matter of military training and are now mak ing preparations for the impartation of the rudiments of the military tac tics to the students during the com ing term. A request has been made to have Sergeant Blake of the Harris burg recruiting station detailed for this work, but a War Department ruling will prevent him from doing this as part of his regular duty. A second request has been made that he be permitted to instruct the students in addition to his regular I duties. This matter has not been finally passed on, officials at the re cruiting station • said this morning, it is almost certain, however, that a system of military training will be established at the Riverside institu tion. Much interest is being shown in Harrisburg and vicinity in military affairs just now. Members of. the Harrisburg Reserves during the past several weeks have been instructing registrants of county draft board No. [ 3 in the rudiments of military tac | tics and expect soon to start in structing registrants in the southern ! end of the county. II Packers'profits Are II Regulated The public should understand that the profits of the packers have been limited by the Food Adminis tration since November 1, 1917. For this purpose, the business of Swift & Company is now divided into | three classes: I Class 1 includes such products as beef, pork, mutton, oleomargarine and others that are essentially animal products. Profits are limited to 9 per cent of the capital employed in these depart ments, (including surplus and borrowed . II money), or not to exceed two and a half cents on each dollar of sales. Class 2 includes the soap, glue, fertil izer, and other departments more or less associated with the meat business. Many of these departments are in competition with outside businesses whose profits are not limited. Profits in this class are restricted to 15 per II ; cent of the capital employed. Class 3 includes outside investments, such as those in stock yards, and the operation of packing plants in foreign countries. Profits in this class are not limited. Total profits for all departments together in 1918 will probably be between three and four per cent on an increased volume of sales. The restrictions absolutely guarantee a reason able relation between live stock prices and wholesale meat prices, because the packer's profit can not possibly average more than a fraction of a cent per ; pound of produ<jt Since the profits on meat (Class l) are running only about 2 cents on each dollar of sales, we have to depend on the profits from soap, glue, fertilizer (Class 2, also limited) and other departments, (Class 3) to obtain reasonable earnings on capital. Swift & Company is conducting its business so - I as to come within these limitations. | Swift & Company, U. S. A I Harrisburg Local Branch, Seventh & North Streets ||| F. W.
