MODERN HOTEL
AT WAYNESBORO
One Large Hostelry May Be
Built to Take Place of
Four Smaller Ones
Waynesboro, Pa., July 9.—A new,
modern, up-to-date hotel for
Waynesboro Is the big thing thrown
out of the box by the enforcement
of wartime prohibition and the
practical effacement of Waynes
boro's four hotels. The Manufac
turers' Association has taken the
Initiative in the project and it is
already makng rapid headway. A
committee to be named by Presi
dent J. Elmer Frantz will go over
the available sites and report with
a recommendation. A stock com
pany will probably be the plan o(
organizing the movement.
The leading bankers and mer
chants are strongly back of the as
sociation.
Several eligible sites are avail
able, foremost of which are the
three down-town hotels, Washing
ton, Werner and Central. The Wer
ner is being more generally dis
cussed, as it has the largest front
age and is right on a Centre Square
corner. While the People's Bank
recently bought the property for
$50,000, for a new'bank home, it is
believed that the hotel plan could be
worked out in conjunction with the
bank, as there is ample frontage for
both. The hotel would be con
ducted on the American plan, have
a large assembly hall, dancing hall,
grill and probably a roof garden.
The idea would be to cater particu
larly to Blue Ridge resort folks, as
well as the tourists and traveling
men.

merce Starts Today
Carlisle, Pa., July 9.—Consider
ably larger than was at first planned

for Carlisle through the efforts of
the local Chamber of Commerce.

twenty-five acres in all. The first
building, for which workers began

1,000,000 feet of lumber, 250,000
bricks and 3,000 cubic yards of ce
ment will be needed in the work

work in the new plant.
Rust Custs Prospects
of Record Wheat Crop
Carlisle. Pa., July 9. —Rust mak

Some fgrmers estimate the shortage
from earlier estimates at twenty-live
per cent. The oats crop is exception
ally large, however, it is stated and
as there was considerably more
acreage in wheat than usual the
total from Cumberland County will
be close to that of 19'1 S.

of the union, wages having been ad
vanced recently. The trouble yes
terday arose over a demonstration
against a visiting nurse, who was
leaving the plant. Guards ran to

GAME PRESERVES
TO BE OUTLINED
Important Meeting of the
State Game Commission
Scheduled For Tomorrow
semi
sion. The policy ot the commission
in regard to expansion of the pre
serves, propagation during the next
year and game protection will be
outlined.
It is probable that speedy action
in regard to establishment of addi
tional preserves will be taken as a
number of available sites have been
inspected by game protectors and
surveys made. Until the passage of
the new law the commission could
only establish preserves on State for
estry reservations or such lands as
would be donated, which prevented
anything being done in the western
end of the State as there are no
forest reserves of any size in that
section. By the new law the com
mission can use not over $50,000 a
year of the State hunters' license
money for purchase of lands and
may allow mineral and similar rights
to be reserved. There are abun
dant funds in hand for the pur
chases.
The commission has offers of con
siderable game to stock reserves and
will consider them and also the
plans for auxiliary reserves.
Details to start —Advance details
of units of the Pennsylvania Re
serve Militia will begin to move to
Mt. Gretna to-day in order to be in
readiness for the making of the
camp to-morrow. The details are to
report for the erection of tents and

is on the ground, having been sent
from the State arsenal. The bri
gade headquarters will be on the
ground on Friday afternoon the
camp will open Saturday fnorning.
Grade Crossing Cases—Public Ser
vice Commissioner Rilling set to-duy

visitors to the Capitol.
Many Trees Set Gut—According to
State Forestry officials in the neigh

RAILROAD NEWS^
DIVISION HEAD IS
REAL RAILROADER
William Elmer, Superintend
ent, Is Getting Together
With His Employes
Not long aince a news dispatch
told of a railroad official leaving his
private car and running an engine.
This official had nothing on William
Elmer, superintendent of the Phila
delphia division. It has-been a fre
quent occurrence with the local offi
cial. There is little in railroading
he cannot do.
For some time there has been con
siderable activity on the main line
of the Pennsy on the part of offi
cials, with a view to getting at the
real causes for train delays. Re
ports have shown defective engines,
bud car equipment and other causes
j for holding up trains. This has
I given some information, but not all
that )s needed.
Takes Trips Over Rood
In order to overlook no detail that
might figure in the running of trains
behind schedule time, Superinten
dent Elmer for some time has been
spending the best part of the duy on
his division. One day you will see
him in an cnginecab. Perhaps the
same day he will be found on a
cabin at the rear of a freight train.
He is also some hiker, according
to reports, and trains liuve been
uatched from along the line, be
tween stations and at points where
delays arc likely to occur. He has
talked with the flagmen and conduc
tors; converses with enginemen and
rtiemen; and there are times when
he makes an entire trip from ter
minal to terminal.
Cn-opcrution Brings Results
In the opinion of Superintendent
Elmer, co-operation brings efficiency.
He believes in meeting the men upon
whom the responsibility of hand
ling trains has been placed and get
from them just what happens. He
is out day and niglit and the re
sults of this personal contact with
men and trains has brought about
a good record on the Philadelphia
division. Train delays are growing
less frequent daily. Repairs to en
gines are looked after promptly.
C oal is being saved and there is a
remarkable showing in the economic
handling of material, all of which,
in the opinion of the Philadelphia
division superintendent, is proving
a factor in bringing satisfactory re
sults.
Railroad Notes
Much interest is manifested in
the weekly shoot <his evening at
Lucknow, by members of the Motive
! Power Athletic Association Gun
Club. Captain Daily has some crack
shots in his lineup.
Employes of the Reading system
assigned to Safety First duties are
installing a number of safety de
vices at Lebanon and other points
on the Hurrisburg division.
, As a result of the heavy freight
rush and scarcity of box cars, all
cars are now being loaded to the
fullest capacity.
Bolgcr Beam, passenger engineer
on tho Middle division of the Pennsy
reports a bumper crop on his farm
in Cumberland County.
William Shipp employed at No.
1 enginehouse of the Pennsylvania
railroad with his family spent the
day in Philadelphia.
Members'of the colored churches
of this city and Steelton held a joint
picnic to-day at Williams Grove.
The special train over tho Cumber
land Valley division this morning
carried 14 carloads of joy seekers. 1
This is pay day for both Philadel
phia and Middle division employes of
the Pennsylvania railroad. The
Philadelphia division employes re
ceived their back pay, und there
were a number of large checks dis
tributed among the enginemen and
I firemen. It is estimated that up
wards of SIOO,OOO was paid out to-
I day.
j Through trains from the west
were late to-day because of delays
on the Pittsburgh division.
Ten more firemen have been pro
moted to engineers on the Middle

the Middle division of the Pennsyl
vania who was off dyty because of
an injured hand, is again on his run
to and from Altoona.

Tight Skirts Are Factor
in Passenger Train Delays
In the opinion of passenger train
men on the Philadelphia and Read
ing, and Pennsylvania railroadß,
tight skirts on women passengers
have been a factor in upsetting
schedules. "They are worse than
blizzards," said one brakeman yes
terday. One official is responsible
for the announcement that Bince
the tight skirts have been in style
the average train stop is seventeen
seconds longer than when short and
loose skirts were in vogue.
Tight skirts are not so bad when
the up-to-date coaches are running,
but with many old-time cars in
service, the steps are rather high,
and it is a hard task getting a wo
man aboard as there is no stool or
porter. In getting oft a woman
