Please give instructions to allow the mis sion to pass." Washington. Nu\. 15.—.News that ait American military mission, head ed by Major General Charles D. Rhodes will visit German great headquartcis at Spa, Belgium, next Saturday, aroused much speculation here. .So far us could be learned no official information as to the object of ttie trip had reached Washington. The purely military character of the mission was regarded as an In dication that General Rhodes' trip was for the purpose of arranging with the German high command for the occupation of various fortresses i.i Alsace-Lorraine, which lie in front of the American lines. These include the Metx-Thionvllle positions, and Strassburg on the Rhine. It is possible also that immediate steps to relieve the food situation in Germany to some extent with the surplus stores of the American army in France may be under considera tion.

MEMORIAL PLANNED FOR CITY'S HEROES WHO FELL IN BA TTLE Movement to Honor Men Who Mode Supreme' Sacrifice I'or Xat ion's Cause Gets Eavor From Officials; IV ishes of Returned Soldiers to Be Consulted Definite plans may soon lie made for the erection of a permanent memorial in honor ot' tho men from the city and county who have given their lives while in service in the war against the Hun. With the signing of fhe armistice and the ending of hostilities senti ment is steadily increasing in favor of such action to show the appre ciation for the sacrifices made on the battlefields in France. Mayor Daniel J., Keister has heartily endorsed the proposal and snid he will bring the question be fore council in the near future to learn the opinion of the other offi cials. He declared that there is no ueed to hurry the plans for erecting suitable memorial and said that when a committee is named to make arrangements much thought should be given so important a duty. "When the time comes to honor tHe soldiers in such a fashion I be- BUSINESSMEN TO HEAR PLANS FOR DEEPENING RIVER Major Gray to Address Mass; Meeting on Navigation j Possibilities The feasibility of making the Sus- J qtiehunna navigable will be the sub-j jeet of a talk to be given by Major William B. Gray at a public J meeting of llarrisburg businessmen j and shippers to be held Tuesday l evening in the Technical High school auditorium. The meeting will be under the auspices of the Harrisburg Rotary Club, and an other speaker who will make an ad-] dress on l.e same line of thought, I but from a different standpoint, will be R. A. Zenttnyer, chairman of the Water Supply Commission of Penn sylvania. In order that ail shippers of lite city may be. reached to hear these two speakers, the Rotarians have sent an invitation to all members,of the Kiwanis Club and the Harris burg Chamber of Commerce and extend an invitation to all business men of the city. The matter of mak-! ing the Susquehanna navigable was formerly presented by Major Gray to members of the Rotary Club at a luncheon held some weeks ago. At that time Major Gray pointed out that for the volume of water at its lowest stagt, the Susquehanna was better for navigation than other livers in this country with less water which have been made navi gable. He cited as a striking ex ample the Mohawk River in New York state.. This statement seems to have been supplemented by Congress man Hampton Moore at a conven tion of the Deeper Waterways Com mission held recently in Boston, when he spoke highly in favor of making the Susquehanna navigable. Major Gray's and Mr. Zentmyer's addresses "Jiould have a special in terest at this time, also, in view of the shipping conditions which are I experienced by the railroads of the ] country. Columbia has taken such ] un interest in the matter of making i the Susquehanna navigable that it has proposed sending a. delegation to the meeting next Tuesday. Major Gray's opinion as an en i gineer, in connection with the feas ibility of making the Susquehanna | navigable. Is regained as conclusive ' by technical and businessmen alike ; His broad experience in handling big j jotis, and his intimate knowledge of | this section of the state are cited as 1 evidence of his sound judgment in ; the present matter. First engineering the large Enoia I yards near Harrisburg. then estab -1 fishing the Middletown ordnance | plant, and now devoting his efforts i to one of the very largest under i takings which the government has | entered upon, the bomb-loading ' plant at Ftockwcll Park, Delaware, ; Major Gray is in position to foresee ] the possibilities and technical ob i staeles which would arise in mak- [Continued on I'agc 21.] Harrisburg Man Has New and Original Idea For Punishing Kaiser The entrances to the newly-re modeled post office are of a kind not in general use in Harrisburg and they are not what one might define as popular. Indeed there are some who say they would sooner climb fences than come through those doors. This morning a well known Har risburger managed to get through after an encounter with a fat wom an trying to go out the wrong way and Inside joined a trio of friends who were discussing the fate of the Kaiser. One man thought Wilhelin ought to be boiled in oil, another believed he ought to be left to die in a little boat in an icy sea nnd still another thought he ought to be turned over to the women of Belgium. "What's your idea?" they asked of the newcotner. "I think," said he. "that he ought to be made spend the remainder of his life going In and out through the new doors of the Harrisburg post office." And If you've tried them on a busy' day you'll understand. lieve some of them who have re- j turned from service and also clti- j sens who have been active in war work, should be consulted. Care-: ful consideration in tho selection of an appropriate memorial will re sult In the erection of a monument which will be worthy of a city suc> as ours." Other officials have approved the proposed memorial also and agreed that it should be a permanent one. County officials said they will con sult with Solicitor Philip S. Moyer in the near future, to learn what amount they might appropriate for such a purpose. They, too, expressed themselves as heartily in favor of honoring the men who have given their lives. Residents of the city said that if funds were not provided out of the general revenues by council they would form an organization and take personal subscriptions to meet the expense of a memorial. SOLDIER VOTE LEAVESSTATE WITH DEFICIT Commissioners Present Big BilLs For Returning With Few Ballots The State of Pennsylvania is con- ■ fronted with a delimit of at least' $12,000 to-day as the result of send- 1 ing 12(1 election commissioners to ■ camps and stations to take the votes of Pennsylvanians in Army, -Navy I and Marine Corps service. The ex pense statements filed by 113 of the j commissioners aggregate $25,310.17. The amount of money left from the I appropriation of $25|000 made in j 1917 is about $12,500. The rest was consumed in taking votes in 1916 and 1917. The Legislature will be asked to make an appropriation to meet the deficiency. ! A. J. Roggenberger, the first of the commissioners to the Pacific coast to report, brought five votes and his bill at ten cents a mile is $744 to San Diego and return. The Rev. Dr. 11. E. P. Prugh, Prohibition state chairman, who went to Fort Leaven worth, put in a bill for $234. Dr. Prugh brought back 30 votes. As the thirteen commissioners to come include men sent to the Paci fic coast the total bill may be $30,- | 000 with only $12,000 in sight. Some of the commissioners brought no votes and the man who went to [ Salt Lake brought back three votes , and a bill for $450. Desire of Men in Camps to Get Home Breaking Morale of U. S. Soldiers By Associated Press WnahinKlon, Nov. 15, Cessation of hostilities in Europe and disappear ance of the prospect of meeting the enemy on the battlefield has brought an immediate loss of morale among American troops at home that is re garded at the War Department as somewhat alarming. It is understood that -eps to deal with the situation already ere being prepared. Upon news that the armistice had been signed, the mental attitude of the individual soldier is said to have undergone a marked change. Instead of bombarding his immediate su periors with queries as to the probable date of entraining for the seaboard, 'htf became anxious ns to the date of his release from service. More serious are reports by some commanding officers that their men are exhibiting a tendency to. view themselves as already released from the strict routine of the camps. It is understood relatives of 'soldiers who have absented themselves will be ask ed to assist the authorities in having them returned promptly to spare the families the dis"race of having an armed guard sent, and with a view of mitigating the punishment of the offenders.

For the well-known yellow and red candy toys, so dear to the heart of every American child, will scarcely make their appearance this season. Because of the curtailed supply of sugar, candy cleartoys, which form a great nutionul institution during the holiday season, can be manufac tured only' to about one per cent, of their usual produtlon. It Is be lieved that scarcely any will appear In the stores of this city until the last week before Christmas, and the price will be fouV times the price in former yearfe. , Candy cleartoys pre made up, for the most part, simply of sugar and water.

GAMBLING BAN • FOR HOLIDAYS IS MAYOR'S EDICT Turkey Raffling and Punch boards to Be Stopped by Police Mayor Keister declared to-day that he will continue his crusade over the holiday season this year against tur key 'raffling," punch boards and all similar gambling devices. Last year at the Mayor's direction the police department stopped much gambling and games of chance at which turkeys and foods were dis posed of, and this year every effort will be made to prevent such condi tions. "Every officer will be instructed that he will be held accountable for what happens in his district," the Mayor said. "I am determined to put un end to gambling, and there will be no turkey 'raffling' permitted. Punch boards and other devices which usually appear during the holidays, must go, and prosecution will follow for any violations." During the year a number of per sons who had been charged with having gambling devices on their premises, were arrested and either entered a plea of guilty or were convicted in Criminal Court. Heavy lines were Imposed for violation of the law. candies composes about 95 per cent, of the' whole product, and so It Is easy to see why their manufacture will be curtailed this year. In for mer yeurs this candy sold for as low as ten cents a pound retail. The price of the scanty supply to be put on the market this season will be In the neighborhood of forty cents, so stated a candy manufacturcer of the city to-duj\ Only about one per cent, of the usual supply will be mude this year, our informant told us, und it is un likely If any will be manufactured before December 20. Being a pro duct which contains so much sugar, it cannot be manufactured in com binations with substitutes, as with other condie3. All of which Information will un doubtedly be severe news to the small boys and girls. YANKEE AIRMEN REACH COLOGNE VIA AIR ROUTE .

The increase allotment is due to better shipping conditions follow ing the cessation of hostilities. All during the summer the sugar allotment for families was but two pounds per month per person. This recently was increased to three pounds. No guarantee is made as to whether the new ruling will remain in effect after December. Announcement also was made that the ban on the making of carbonated "soft" drinks such as sold over soda water bars had been lifted. This will permit the manufacturers to go back to their old outputs. Bakers may purchase approxi mately fifty per cent, more sugar for the making of pies, cakes and breads. A big increase also is made in the allotment given ice cream manufacturers. The now ruling makes available plenty of sugnr for the baking of Christmas cakes.

After the peace Versailles was the seat of the French National Assem bly and for a few years thereafter was the official capital of France.
