SERBS KEEP UP FIGHTING ON THE RUSSIAN FRONT Display Same Dash and Vigor as in Early Days of the War Medvejin GOTO, Russian Lapland, Aug. 26. —A Serbian battalion which has been fighting under one flag, or another since August, 1914, still is fighting, up here in Karelian Rus sia. The role of these Serbs on the North Russian front has been sim ilar to that of the Czecho-Slovaks in Serbia and reads like an unfin ished Iliad. They are big, strapping well disciplined soldiers, five years and several thousand miles from home, and, Just now, when they go in action against the Bolsheviki, along with their Russian, British, °oo ijpu hum) tfvoJc &cls jtotesf" rzsidevCUaC Xicks of otup ccGj, mC f&e UtJhL States? ■ M g/L* ■ W'Aflo waflo M*/lfi l REMOVAL NOTICE ] ® ► We have removed from 213 N.

This Coupon Good for a Glass of At Any Fountain TUESDAY EVENING, French or until recently American Allies, they display the same dash and battle enthusiasm that charac terized the Serbs in the early days of the war. One way or another, these Ser bians reached Odessa, where they were formed into a battalion for service against the Central Powers. They want to get somewhere to fight Austria so they started for Archangel hoping eventually to join the Allies in France. _ - The Serbs seized a locomotive and sufficient box cars to carry the bat talion and after four months journey arrived at Murmansk. The Allies landing at Murmansk in the spring of 1918 found the Ser bian battalion there, ready to fight against the Bolsheviki, and, for, the first few months of the campaign, the Serbs formed the backbone of the force opposing the Reds, which speedily wrested several hundred miles of the Murmansk railway from the Communists. Throughout the subsequent fight ing on this front Serbs have distin guished themselves, and now they are awaiting the day w'hen they can return to the new greater Serbia which includes Bosnia and other territories where they lived when impressed into the Austrian army. MANY AMERICAN AUTOS WILL BE SENT TO ENGLAND British Government Is Ex pected to Loosen Up on Import Rules London, Aug. 26.—A large quan tity of American motor possibly 5000, may be admitted into Great Britain in the next few months, says the American Cham ber of Commerce in London. This will include passenger cars, com mercial cars, and motorcycles. Up to the present time, importers have been rationed on the basis of 50 per cent of their 1913 imports, in proportionate monthly quantities up to September 1, 1919, at which time the British Government's "tran sitional policy" is to be reconsidered. Those importers who established their businesses later than 1913 have not been getting anything at (til. i'lic Board of Trade recently re quested the American Chamber of Commerce in London to suggest a scheme which would give equitable consideration to all importers from America, old and new. The Chamber has suggested as a basis of distribution, the yearly aver age of imports obtained by adding the totals for 1912-1913-1914-1915, and dividing by four. This scheme gives preference to those importers whose organizations have been in existence for a long time, but also takes into account importers who started in 1914 and 1915. The plan has been ratified unani mously by the importers and the, Board of Trade is now circularizing the entire trade for their returns jn this basis. This is declared to be only a temporary arrangement, and not to be taken as an indication of the British Government's trade policy on motor vehicles after September 1. New Board to Fix Railroad Rates, Johnson Tells House Committee Washington, Aug. 26.—The In terstate Commerce Commission, functioning as a rate-making body, with "men of action" rendering es sential service in Federal regula tions, represented the ideal combi nationl in railway development to new supplies of material for food, build up the country and uncover clothing and other factors in the high cost of living, Alba B. Johnson, of Philadelphia, told the House Com mittee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce at its hearing. Mr. Johnson, recently retired from the presidency of the Baldwin Locomotive Works, spoke as presi dent of the Railway Business Asso ciation (railway equipment manu facturers). While praising the Interstate Com merce Commission for its compe tence and fairness In adjudicating rate discriminations and urging its preservation as a judicial body, Mr. Johnson cited its current reports and testimony in proof of its unfitness to exercise the business function of es timating future needs and providing resources to meet them. On the other hand, he contended, to put "men of action" in the Com mission would "turn it into a sham bles."

J | Southern California Tied Up by Strike Bp Associated Press. Los Angeles, Cal., Aug. 26.—Rail transportation throughout Southern California as far as Fresno on the north and as far east as Yuma, Ariz., was paralyzed to-day. A strike which began Thursday night when switchmen and brf.kemen quit their posts In sympathy with a strike of trainmen of the Pacific Electric Company, operating an tnterurban system and which rapidly extended to include other truinmen, yardmen and shopmen, spread last night northward to Bakersfield, Cal., and eastward to Yuma. At the former place 100 switch men of the Southern Pacific and Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe walked out, tying up train service both to the north and south. At Yuma thirty-six Southern Pacific switchmen quit and trainmen le fused to take out two trains for the east which had been made up by officials. Switchmen and trainmen who met here last night took no official action it was said on orders from Warren S. Stone, international grandmaster of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and W. G. Lee, of the Railway Trainmen, to "perform their usual duties and carry out their contracts." lIEI.I, 1001—2350 UNITED lIAHHISBURG, TUESDAY, AUGUST 20. 110.

It is true that certain suites and pieces have been sold that cannot be duplicated, but there are a multitude of others just as beautiful in design and up to the Bowman standard of quality. Although this sale has surpassed any preceding sale in the history of the store, we endeavor by every means possible to keep our stocks up to assure splendid assortments. The scarcity of good furniture is more noticeable from day to day, 'tis true; but to-day we are fortunate in having what was ordered months ago. Since the war, people have not denied themselves as much as they did during the war. In fact, they have made up for lost time. This accounts for the unprecedented demand which is making good merchan dise scarcer to-day than during the war. Scarcity of raw materials, labor troubles and various other factors enter into this situation; therefore, we would suggest that you buy now, if you contemplate buying, because practically all trade journals and expert authorities can give no assurance of future conditions while the whole world is unsettled, industrially.
