The Americanization class
which holds forth two evenings each
week at the Bellefonte high school
has dwindled down to from four to
six members during the summer
months, but this is accounted for by
the fact that most of the foreigners
who started in with the class in the
spring when it numbered from twen-
ty to twenty-five, have been devoting
their evenings to gardening and have
not the time to spare to go to the
classes, but later in the summer the
number is expected to increase.

tre county veteran club will be held
this year at Martha on Saturday, Au-
gust 23rd, in connection with the big |
Williams family reunion. This will
be the first time that the veterans have
met in that section of the county and
they will undoubtedly prove an added
attraction to what has for years been
one of the biggest gatherings in Cen-
tre county. The citizens of Howard
have planned to hold a big welcome
home gathering on the same day, and
unless the date is changed the two
meetings will conflict.

Hines made a trip up the back road

the lights, windshield and badly dam-
aging the radiator. The accident
happened about nine o'clock and occa-
sioned considerable excitment in that
neighborhood. Fortunately driver
Hines was uninjured and the bridge
took the bump with only a quiver.

EE —————— Te DD a
Chautauqua Lecturer Made Earnest
Appeal for League of Nations.
Lecturing on the subject, “John
Bull and Uncle Sam” Frederick Wil-
liam Wile, the Monday night Chau-
tauqua speaker, made an earnest and
eloquent plea in behalf of support for
the League of Nations. Mr. Wile is
an old newspaper man, having been
foreign correspondent for the New
York World, Philadelphia Public
Ledger and Chicago Tribune, and dur-
ing fourteen years’ residence in Ber-
lin also represented the London
Times. Prior to going to Germany he
spent six years in England hence his
lecture on Monday evening, while it
savored very strongly of pro-English,
must be regarded as a statement of
facts as he saw them. And while he
praised the British for what they had
done during the great world war he
did not in any way underrate the part
the United States had played to bring
the war to a successful issue.
And it was plainly evident that he
has no love for Germany or anything
German. Having lived among them
so long, he spoke with an authority
that carried conviction. Mr. Wile was
in Germany through all of Ambassa- |
dor Gerard’s term of service there and
was in personal contact with the
American foreign office almost every
day, and was outspoken in his con-
tempt for the German rulers and the
German people.
In making his plea for the League
of Nations he said it had been inspir-
ed by America as the one means to
prolong peace and it was hoped pre-
vent wars in the future. That all oth-
er nations were approving it as speed-
ily as possible and it would be a last-
ing shame and dishonor if the United
States was to disapprove it.
In speaking of the part the British
played in the great war he gave fig-
ures to show what it cost that country
in dollars and lives, but stated that
they never boasted of their doings.
Prior to coming to the United States
Mr. Wile visited England and he stat-
ed that though he traveled from one
end of the country to the other he did
not see a service button or a service
flag, but when he landed in the United
States both emblems were as thick as
flies from Maine to the Gulf of Mexi-
co and from the Atlantic to the Pa-
cific. The comparison was not made
in any way derogatory to the Ameri-
can people but to emphasize the fact
that the British were much more stol-
id and phlegmatic. They did - their
part without a murmur or complaint
and having done it, never advertised
the fact to the rest of the world.
In speaking of the peace settlement
and the terms that had been imposed
upon Germany he stated that every
trade’s organization in the United
States should refuse to buy anything
marked “made in Germany” until the
Germans as a nation show some signs
of repentance, and there is no evi-
dence of that up to this time.
At the conclusion of his talk he
gave any person who chose to do so
the opportunity to ask him any ques-
tions they wanted to and Dr. Beach
asked how the Germans would pay the |
big indemnity imposed upon them if
we refused to purchase goods from |
that country? Mr. Wile stated that
for four years without any outside
commercial relations and he knew
that they had tons and tons of gold
held in reserve and they should be
forced to disgorge their good collat- |
eral and pay their indemnity out of |
trade with contiguous countries who
were more or less dependent upon |
them, at least until such time as they |
proved themselves worthy of commer- |
cial relations, and then, Mr. Wile ob-
served, he would keep one eye on
them all the time.
Editor Harter, of the Gazette, asked
the speaker if he could tell him just
who inspired the League of Nations
and Mr. Wile stated that he could not
tell positively but it was always cred-
ited to President Wilson.
“Do you believe it will prevent
war?” asked Editor Harter.
“No, do you?” said Mr. Wile.
“Well,” replied editor Harter, “they
said it would.”
“Who said it would?” asked the
lecturer, and when pressed for a re-
ply Mr. Harter said “Col. Spangler.”
Of course Mr. Wile had to admit
that he had not the pleasure of Col.
Spangler’s acquaintance and asked to
be enlightened as to who he was and
on what authority he had made the
statement. On being told that the
Colonel was a resident of Bellefonte,
an ardent supporter of President Wil-
son and just now in California as a
member of the Federal Commission
| engaged in settling a strike among
: the oil men, Mr. Wile stated that while
! he did not believe the League of Na-
| tions would end war it would prolong
| peace and eventually some good way
might be worked out through the me-
dium of the League as to make it very
imprudent for any two nations to go
to war.
Mr. Wile’s lecture was just one of
the many good things that were given
the people of Bellefonte during the
one week of Chautauqua which closed
on Wednesday night. Every one of
the numbers on the program was
high-class from the opening afternoon
to the closing lecture. In fact, it
proved to be the best program pre-
sented by any Bellefonte Chautauqua
since the opening year, and those peo-
ple who failed to attend regularly
missed a feast of good things. With
such high-class entertainment it was
not a difficult matter to get guaran-
tors for next year and the following

qua during the 1920 season:

——The men who represent the
Gaylord International Engineering
and Construction company in charge
of the construction of the state high-
Gap are pushing the work to the limit
and are making good progress. While
it will be impossible to eliminate all
the sharp curves on this stretch of
highway and maintain the present
good grade, wherever it can be done
the curves will be cut down so as to
lessen the danger of travel. One such
place is out at the old Nittany fur-
nace location, now the Titan Metal
company property, where the point of
the hill will be cut off to a depth of
thirty feet. While moving the road-
way thirty feet east will not eliminate
the curve entirely it will so lengthen
it as to reduce the danger of a colli-
sion at that point to a minimum.

——Between eleven and twelve
o’clock last Friday morning an air-
plane sailed over Bellefonte from west
to east, flying very high, and did not
stop at the aviation field. That being
the day the air pilots in the mail serv-
ice were all out on a strike there was
considerable curiosity and speculation
as to who the lone flyer was and his
mission. It later developed that it
was Capt. Roy N. Francis, in a Mar-
tin bomber, who made a non-stop
flight from Akron, Ohio, to Hazle-
hurst field, Mineola, Long Island.
Capt. Francis flew east with the in-
tention of starting today on a one-
stop flight to the Pacific coast, the one
stop to be at Lincoln, Neb., but on
Monday afternoon, during a fierce
storm lightning struck the hangar in
which his Martin bomber was housed
and entirely demolished the machine,
so that his trip is of necessity post-
poned. When Capt. Francis does
make the trip he will likely fly over

for one more month, or until the first
of September.
——1In February, 1917, Judge Hen-
ry C. Quigley, of Bellefonte, presided
‘over one of the courts in Pittsburgh,
"and one of the cases brought before !

ship of a cat. Judge Quigley heard a
portion of the evidence then quashed |
‘the case on the grounds that there is!
‘no law in Pennsylvania relating to

another thought is of course not
{ known, but the decision went into the

does it happen that in all these years

‘law on cats, and the field is surely |
fruitful enough to give some active
member food for thought, as first is

That “Strike” of Air Mailmen.
Much ado was made in the city pa-
‘pers last week about what was char-
, acterized as the first strike of the pi-
lots who drove the machines on the
airmail routes between New York and
Washington and New York and Chi-
cago, with the result that all airmail
: was tied up on Friday. But on Fri-
day evening an agreement was made
| by Charles I. Stanton, superintendent
of the Eastern division aerial mail
service with the pilots at the aviation
fields in New York, Washington,
Bellefonte, Cleveland and Chicago
whereby they were to take out their
planes as usual, pending a settlement
of the trouble in Washington.
The characterized strike of the pi-
lots was over the discharge of E.
Hamilton Lee and Leon Smith, who
refused to fly from Belmont field,
New York, on the morning of July
22nd, when the field was covered by a
dense fog and the visibility was less
than one hundred feet. Charles H.
Anglin was chosen as the pilot’s rep-
resentative to the Washington confer-
ence and James C. Furst Esq., of
Bellefonte, was selected by the pilots
to look after their interest.
At the Washington conference,
which lasted until Sunday night, the
fact was brought out that Lee had not
refused to fly on the date specified,
but had objected to going up in a Cur-
tis R4 machine equipped with a Lib-
erty motor; at the same time signify-
ing his willingness to start the flight
in a Curtis H, which is a slow travel-
ing machine and much safer in bad
weather. At the conference it was re-
vealed that instead of a strike having
been called each individual flyer had
come to his own conclusion not to fly
high compression motors regardless
of weather conditions. At the confer-
ence the pilots described in detail the
difficulties with which they have to
. contend to Otto Praeger, second as-
sistant postmaster general, and what
they considered the severity of the or-
ders issued by him requiring the pilot
to fly regardless of weather condi-
| While the orders of the Department
were not changed in form they were
| so explained and interpreted by Mr.
: Praeger that the pilots are hereafter
' given the authority to delay starting
a flight in case they believe it cannot
be made with a reasonable degree of
safety, and that they have the right
of appeal to the field managers locat-
ed at each station, who are authorized
by the Department to decide the ques-
tion; and the pilots feel quite confi-
dent that no field manager will order
them to begin a flight unless weather
conditions are such that he would be
willing. to undertake the flight him-
self. The pilots say under such cir-
cumstances they will be willing to fly
these ships even if they die in the at-
The pilots also asked for an increas-
ed scale of salary. They have been
, hired at $2000 a year with a ten per
cent. increase for every thirty hours
in the air until they receive $2800, for
pilots in class A. Class B pilots,
those who through exceptional ability
or by reason of perfect records for de-
livery of mail in bad weather and the
. avoidance of accidents, have been re-
ceiving $3600 a year. The pilots ask-
ed a minimum salary of $3600 with a
reasonable increase for length of
The conference resulted in the re-
instatement of E. Hamilton Lee at his
previous salary and an agreement to
consider a written application from
Leon Smith for his reinstatement,
subject, however, to a consideration
of matters pertaining to his previous
conduct and his actions after his dis-
missal by the Department, which vir-
tually amounted to an announcement
- of his dismissal. The salary question
is still under consideration.
In the meantime the air mail was
resumed last Saturday and has been
flying along ever since.
State Appropriations of Benefit to
Centre County.
In the general appropriation bill
signed by Governor Sproul last
Thursday Centre county will reap the
benefit of $20,000 to the Bellefonte
hospital; $54,000 to the Cottage State
hospital, Philipsburg; $1,781,462 to
The Pennsylvania State College, and
$1,103,955 to the western penitentiary,
although only $500,000 of the peniten-
tiary appropriation comes to the in-
stitution at Rockview.
In addition to the above Centre
county now has two state road con-
tracts under way for which the bids
were $465,042.73, while bids are now
being asked for between two and
three miles of road in Rush township
, and recommendation has been made
| for a piece of road in College town-
ship. And then the repair work on
the various state roads in Centre
county also amounts to quite an item.
