EAGER TO ERECT
MEMORIAL SHAFT
Residents of Dauphin and
Middle Paxton Back of
Project
Dgupkin, Oct. 9.—Meeting at the
home of F- C. Gerberich last even
ing, enthusiastic boosters of the pro
posed memorial shaft for Civil and
Great Wars veterans organized the
Dauphin Memorial Association and
discussed ways and means of bring
ing the project to materialization.
Dr. W. P. Clark was elected chair
men of the association. Other offl
oere are Charles E. Shaffer, secre
tary. and Dr. A- C. Coble, treas
urer. Others In attendance were:
W. B. Gross, who first broached
the idea of a memorial shaft; J.
D. M. Reed, Daniel F. Seiler and
F. C. Gerberich.
According to present plans a rug
god boulder, weighing in the vicin
ity of ten tons, will be brought from
the slopes of Short Mountain by the
W. P. Zartman LumtAr Company,
aboard their narrow gauge. Mr.
Seiler and Dr. Coble are on the com
mittee to secure it The rock will
be brought into the town early next
week, depending upon the difficulties
attending its loading and transpor
tation.
Middle Paxton Boys, Too
In the meantime Mr. Gerberich
and Mr. Shaffer are securing esti
mates on the prices of bronze tab
lets. These will contain the names
of all veterans of the Civil War,
numbering more than fifty, and of
the Great War, totaling nearly sev
enty, and will be attached to the
boulder. In each instance names
of men who resided in Middle Pax
ton township, which includes
Clark's, Stony and Fishing Creek
valleys will be included, as the com
mittee is eager to make the shaft
representative of the community
rather than limiting it to the bor
ough.
Early Contributors
As soon as the price of the bronze
tablets is ascertained, a campaign
will be waged to raise the necessary
funds. While no plea has gone out,
Dr. A. C. Coble to-day received two
contributions from patriotic citi
zens. one in the borough and an
other a Middle Paxton farmer. Oth
t are expected to follow their ex
ample.
R1 Cross Approves Step
The local Red Cross unit has ex
pressed its heartiest approval of the
project and members have volun
terred to aid in the campaign for
funds. A third plate on the marker
will contain a list of welfare con
tributions and Liberty Loan pur
chases in Dauphin and vicinity.
G. A. R. Endorses It
Among the heartiest supporters of
the movement are the few remain
ing survivors of the Civil War. They
have never been appropriately rec
ognized and the eagerness with
which John Bricker, George Sellers
and Samuel Maurey are swinging in
back of the movement shows how
thev feel this lack.
"It don't matter much for us. be
cause we won't be here very long,
but we do want to see a permanent
yeeord of the bojs in this war and
& permanent record of this section's
war welfare work," said John Brick
er to-day.
