TO PLAN RED CROSS SALE Committee Will Meet To-night to Ai range Campaign For Disposal of Christmas Stamps Coincident with the closing to-night of the great statewide political , cam paign, another crusade, national instead of statewide, will be opened. Prelimi nary steps for launching here the 1914 Red Cross Christmas*seal sale will be disPUßse-l toy the general committee at the residence of Ohairman John Fox Weiss. >lr. Weiss, who headed the campaign last year which plai.-ed Harrisburg among the record-breaking cities of the country for the number of stamps sold, ihas called the committee to meet at 7.45 o'clock, tout because of the fact •that it is election night, the meeting iwill be very brief. Harrisburg already has received its first consignment of the Christmas seals —300,000 —the largest number ever sen't in the first consignment. Mr, Weiss says lie is confident that these seals will toe disposed of by Christ mas. The general cannpe.ign plan will be Similar to that of last year, when a score of different ideas were followed out successfully. The public schools, secret societies, Boy Scouts' organiza tions, churches and the merchants of fhe city and the suburban towns will be among the "mediums through which Harrisburg's general committee will dispose of the stamps. Chief among this year's campaign features will be the series of "'Mer chants Days." This plan was adopted last year, but because of the 'brief time the results were not so large as might have been possible in a greater time allowance, and for tfhjs reason the idea will be worked out much earlier. In brief, the plan is to set apart one day during the crusade as a certain class of merchants' day, such as "grocers' day," a "bakers' day," etc., when these merchants will be given stamps to dispose of. The Boy Scout's will be enlisted especially in this work in helping to dis tribute the seals. WEST FAIRVIEW Augsburg Lutheran Y. P. S. C. E. Hold Masquerade Social Special Correspondence.

TURKEY'S ENTRANCE INTO WAR. SUICIDE. SAYS PAPER Bombay, Via London, Nov. 3, 7.45 A M.- —The Jlombay "Chronicle," in an editorial headed "Suicide," says of Turkey's entrance into the European war: "The folly and rashness of those in whose hands the destiny of Turkey is placed have plunged her in a vortex from which she cannot emerge with any shred ot a status as a nation."
