On Tuesday they got the smell of blood when several of the sharp shooters spied a deer and killed him. On Wednesday several of the boys took a trip to the North Mountain to hunt bear. The six left at camp started out and made a drive on the knob called the "Deer Leg." There A. W. Cole spied a large buck plunging through the brush and shot true, bring- ing him down. A Little Gossip: A dispatch from York says: "Eddie Plank, the star Athletic southpaw, ac- companied by his brother, Ira D. Plank, a former Tri-State Player, came to York yester- day and paid a visit to the Rev. Fred Gotwalt, secretary of the Board of Education of the Lu- theran Church. "Some signifi- cance is given Pitcher Plank's visit to a minister in view of the fact that at the recent din- ner given for Plank by his fel- low townsmen, it was intimated that a wedding was a near fu- ture event. While here Plank made arrangements for a bowl- ing match between the Gettys- burg team and York. The two Planks came OTer in Eddie's touring car. Plank will go to Harrisburg on Saturday to see the Gettysburg-Bucknell game." Many Horses Dying: The fertilizer plant of Spangler and Oyler thus far this fall has re- ceived from eighteen to twenty- five dead horses every week. This number does not include the dead cows, etc., which are hauled to the plant for disposal. Harry Montfort, who resides on the Hnnterstown road about two miles from town, had the mis- fortune to lose three valuable horses recently from spinal menginitis and at the present time has a mule which in all probability will also die, afflict- ed with the same disease. Mr. Bream, who lives along the Bonneauville road several miles from town, also lost several horses from the same disease. The animals which have died were sick only a short while.

People like that never fail! They may lose material things, but they never lose their soul. Trustworthy people are al- ways liked. In fact they are hunted far and wide. Fine speci- mens of anything are always rare and they all have to be hunted, or sought through sweat and hard labor. A man's or woman's word means much more than any- thing else which he or she may possess. Which also reminds me of the statement that the American financier and banker J. Pierpont Morgan, once made before a Washington committee. He said that he had often loaned a million dollars to a man who gave not one cent in security. He said that he often loaned on character. Trust- worthiness what a thing ol wealth! Many an employe has been kept in a position of trust that a more brilliant one might have had, but for the fact that he could not be trusted. Not trusted in the sense that he might prove dishonest, but that he might edge away on bis word.

Dr. C. A. Hanson, president of the school, said: "The 54th secretary of state of the United Slates assumed that high oflice in 1961 following a career marked by variety and un- usual distinction. "A Phi Beta Kappa grad- uate of Davidson College, and Rhodes Scholar he be- came a professor of govern- ment at Mills College and also served that institution as dean of its faculty. En- tering military service as a reserve Army captain in 1940 he served for five years in Burma where he became deputy chief of staff for that theater. "Following his army dis- charge as a colonel he en- tered the state department where he advanced to the post of assistant secretary for Far Eastern Affairs. From that position he was chosen for the presidency of the Rockefeller Founda- tion and there served until chosen by President Ken- nedy as secietary of state. "As scholar, military of- ficer, foundation executive and career diplomat our speaker has given generous- ly of his energy and great talent and from these pur- suits have come the pa- tience, wisdom and vision which marks his character and accomplishments. "It is my high honor and privilege to present the sec- retary of state, the Honor- able Dean Rusk." One hundred years ago there came to this community a most remarkable man whose memory is revered by all of us who are the heirs of those who fought here both in blue and in gray. He spoke here about ancient verities not as a sophisti- cated philosopher but as a man who felt deeply about the hopes which lie in the heart of man. It was a speech of only 10 sentences, around 270 words, [t disappointed many who heard it, and the man who gave it thought it was a failure. But it las become the most widely ready speech ever made by an American; perhaps by anyone in the English tongue. It has been translated into every writ- ten language and is cherished around the world.

Barry Goldwater said today he will not call off supporters' ef- forts to enter presidential nom- ination delegates in the April 28 Pennsylvania primary. Pennsylvania's Republican governor, William W. Scranton, is reportedly disturbed by the move. But Goldwater, Arizona Re- publican who has delayed any announcement of his intention to seek the party's 1964 presi- dential nomination, said he can- not control his supporters in the kev state of Pennsylvania which will have 62 votes toward the 655 needed for victory in the GOP nominating convention. "NOTHING i CAN DO" "I am not a candidate for the presidential nomination and there is nothing I can do about what my friends in Pennsylva- nia may 'Goldwater said in an interview. "If they want to enter dele- gates in the primary that's none of my business. I certainly won't discourage them or take any part one way or the other." Scranton, who locks with ap- prehension on Goldwater's un- announced but blossoming bid for the presidential nomination, has arranged to confer with Goldwater Wednesday. Foremost on the governor's mind is a wait-and-see program for Pennsylvania's feuding Re- publicans. This would entail the governor's heading a favorite- son ticket of delegates which would go to the San Francisco convention uncommitted to any major candidate. Mentioned as a possible dark horse in the race, the governor was pictured by associates as striving for party unity in the state. Scranton's planned appeal to Goldwater was to discourage delegate candidates who might upset the slate being pieced to- gether to support the governor in his favorite-son operation. COULD WITHDRAW Scranton has said he would step in to kill any dark horse movement that developed for him. Goldwater said it was too far away for him to say whether his name might be entered in the Pennsylvania popularity contest for the presidential nomination. Anyone whose name is entered without his con- sent in that contest could with- draw in writing if he acted be- fore Feb. 25. This deadline would come two weeks before the March 10 New flampshirc primary in which Goldwater's friends expect him to be pitted against New York Gov. Nelson A.

What is there about those words which makes them mem- orable? In the original tongue they have beauty and cadence "the vibrations of deathless music. They express tender sentiments. But these qualities are inadequate to account for their indelible imprint. What makes the Gettysburg Address a great and enduring is the simple eloquence with which it restates the ideas to which this j nation is dedicated: "Liberty the proposition that all men are created equal govern- ment of the people, by the peo- ple, for the people."
