Gov. Sproul Appoints New Commis-
sioner of Labor.
Governor Sproul last Friday ap-
pointed C. B. Connelly, of Pittsburgh,
Commissioner of Labor and Industry
to succeed John Price Jackson, resign-
ed. Mr. Jackson was appointed Com-
missioner by Governor Brumbaugh
when he took the gubernatorial chair
and was re-appointed for a term of
four years in May, 1917. Shortly
after that he offered his services to
the U. S. government for the duration
of the war, was accepted and sent to
France. His work there was of such
a character as to win for him a pro-
motion to lieutenant colonel.
When Governor Sproul took office
he appointed Mr. Connelly acting
commissioner. Last August the Gov-
ernor received a letter from Col.
Jackson tendering his resignation as
the nominal head of the labor bureau
but it was not accepted for the rea-
son that the Legislature of 1917 pass-
ed ‘a law that State employees could
not be discharged during the term of
their service with the government.
Col. Jackson recently returned from
Europe and last week again tendered
his resignation and the same was:
promptly accepted and Mr. Connelly
appointed. Just what Col. Jackson
has in view is not known at this time.
He left State College to accept the
appointment of Commissioner of La-
bor and Industry and it is not now
known if he contemplates returning
to the College or not.
Celebrated Golden Wedding.
On November 19th, 1869, Samuel
Glenn, of the Branch, and Miss Pris-
cilla Mothersbaugh, of Harris town-
ship, journeyed to Lewistown where
they were united in marriage. They
returned home and took up their res-
idence on the old Glenn homestead on
‘the ‘Branch where they spent the half
century of their married life.
Mr. Glenn is seventy-two years old
and his wife seventy-one, and both be-
ing vigorous and in splendid health
they celebrated their golden wedding
on Wednesday afternoon with a home-
gathering of their children and by in-
viting their intimate friends to the
"gathering. About fifty people were
present and the evening proved a
most delightful one for everybody. A
. big. dinner was, of course, one of the
features of the gathering.
Mr. and Mrs. Glenn were the par-
ents of ten children, two boys and two |
girls having passed to the Great Be-
yond. Those living are Rev. James
Glenn, of Carlisle; Mrs. Samuel Was-
son, of Lemont; John, at State Col-
lege; Edward, who has had charge of
the home farm since the retirement of
his father two years ago; and Mar-
garet and Ella at home.
The Glenn family is one of the old-
est and best known in College town-
ship, and has the respect and esteem
of a wide circle of friends. Mr. Glenn
is an elder in the Presbyterian church
dnd his wife is an active worker in
the same. May they live to celebrate
many more anniversaries.

WALKEY.—Mrs. Emma Walkey,
wife of Harry Walkey, passed away
at her home on .east Bishop street
about seven o’clock last Friday morn-
ing after less than a week’s illness.
She had been a sufferer for some
years with Bright's disease and dur-
ing the past year or eighteen months
had suffered several severe attacks,
caused by overwork in the interest of
the Red Cross and other organizations
with which she was connected. Her
last attack occurred the Saturday pre-
vious to her death and it proved so
serious that little hope of her recov-
ery was entertained at any time.
Mrs. Walkey was the only daughter
of C. D. and Emma Shank Crider and
was born at Warriorsmark. When a
child her parents “moved to Tyrone
and after a few years spent there

ago and her mother ten years ago last
August, and just ten years ago Tues-
day of last week she was united in
marriage to Mr. Walkey. Following
her marriage she became a member
of the Reformed church and ever since
had been unusually active in.all man-
ner of church and Sunday school ac-
tivities. She carried the same ardor
and enthusiasm into her work with
the Red Cross and the Woman’s Club
of Bellefonte, of which she also was a
member. :
She leaves no children and her on-
ly survivor is her husband. Funeral
services were held at her late home on
east Bishop street at two oclock on
Monday afternoon by Dr. Ambrose

STOVER.—John Farver Stover, a..Notice “to Prospective Buyers of
‘of Jacksonville;
untary bankruptcy.
life-long resident of ‘Spring township, ."
was found dead in the woods of Cam-
bria county early last week by a
hunter out for small game.. Mr. Sto-
ver, who was 80 years, 7 months and
29 days old, was born and spent prac-
* tically all his life in the neighborhood
of Pleasant Gap. Last March his son
Jerry came to Centre county and took
him out to his home at Marstellar,
Cambria county, where he spent the
summer. Two weeks ago the son
came to Centre county on business
and wanted his father to come along
as he thought a visit back to his old
home would do him good, but the aged
“man declined to come. On Monday of
: last week the son received a telephone
i message saying that his father had |
left home and could not be found, and
his natural thought was that he had
finally decided to come alone to Cen-
‘tre county. Monday evening Jerry
came to Bellefonte from Pleasant
. Gap, expecting to see his father get
: off the train, but he didn’t. The next
| day, however, he received word that .
his dead body had been found by a
hunter in the woods, about-four miles
from Marstellar. The general .opin-
ion is that the aged ‘gentleman, in 2
fit of abstraction, wandered away
from heme, became: lost and died from *
exposure and fatigue.
Mr. Stover was an old soldier, hav-
ing served with distinction during the
Civil war. He was a carpenter by oc-
cupation and a good citizen in every
way. He was married to Miss Sarah
Noll, of Pleasant Gap, who died sev-
en years ago since which time he had
made his home with his sons, four of
whom survive, as follows: George,
William, of Boals-
burg; Samuel and Jerry, of Marstel-
lar. The son Samuel accompanied
the remains to Centre county last
Thursday for burial in the Shiloh
cemetery, Rev. S. C. Stover, of Boals-
burg, having charge of the services.

as Cadillacs.
Dear Sir: g 3
. We regret that we have had to dis-
appoint many a person who wanted
to buy a Cadillac this year but could
not get one because there were not
nearly enough to go round.
Our entire allotment was absorbed
by those who foresightedly ordered
their cars in advance of the time
when they actually needed them.
Already, we foresee that we shall
not be able to secure, during 1920, ali
the Cadillacs our territory will want.
So, if you wish te own a Cadillac
next year, we advise you not to delay
in placing your order.
Please understand that we are not
urging you to make an unpremeditat- |
ed purchase of a Cadillac.
We are giving you these facts con-
cerning the demand for the Cadillac,
notin our own ‘behalf, but seriously:
and earnestly, * because “we ‘wish. to
guard-you against disappointment.

Republican Senate Adjourns After
Voting Against Confirmation.
. Washington, Nov. 19.—Failing af-
i ter three attempts to ratify the peace
| treaty the Senate late tonight laid it
: aside, ended the special session and
i went home.
The first vote taken on the Lodge
: resolution stood 39 to 55 against. On
. the second vote, taken after several
"hours of parliamentary wrangling in
t which the Democrats made vain ef-
. forts to win over some of the Repub-
| lican group of mild reservationists, 41
i Senators voted in the affirmative and
51 in the negative.
: The third vote was on a straight-
out ratification without reservations
which got only 38 votes to 53 oppos-
ing it. Only one Republican, Senator
{ McCumber, North Dakota, voted with
' the Democrats in its support.
! Republican leader Lodge declared
: today’s voting constituted a final de-
cision on the peace treaty unless
President Wilson circumvented the

A third wrote from her home in
Folkestone, England: “And little did

after Aunt Lucy’s! How true that

corner of my heart I feel grateful to

Then come, thou desponding Amer-

mince pies serve rice pudding, fricas-
see, pot roast or even lamb stew.
Look around your table at your well

most devoutly thank the good God for

Anticipating His Birthday.

penny. What on earth shall I do?”
“0, well, let him have it. Next
Thursday is his birthday anyway.”
ginning of the next session of Con-
gress, beginning next month.
One effect of the Senate’s failure to
‘ ratify the treaty will be the continua-
tion of various war time laws and
regulations at least until the new ses-
sion opens. Among these is the war
time prohibition act.
The resolution presented tonight to
declare a state of peace will come
up at the beginning of the new ses-
sion and is expected to start another
i stubborn fight. The administration is
, understood to be opposed to such a
‘method of legally ending the war and
in the background is a constitutional
‘question as to whether Congress can
do so by a resolution not requiring
the President’s signature.
It was suggested tonight among
Democratic Senators that President
Wilson might be asked during the re-
cess to feel out the other powers as to
their attitude on reservations with the
idea of bringing the treaty to some
sort of a ratification after Congress
