Entire Plant Went Up in Smoke En-
| tailing Loss of $200,000. New
Stee! Building to Take
Its Place.
i The airdrome on the U. S. govern-
ment aviation field in Bellefonte was
entirely destroyed by fire on Saturday
evening together with all its contents
which included four DeHaviland air-
planes, three of them new; a Curtiss
plane that had just been received and
never flown; three new Liberty mo-
tors that had never been used; all the
spare parts -in the stoek room; a big
White truck, two motor cycles with
side cars; all the office equipment,
and various personal bel6ngings of
the aviators and men employed on the
field, entailing a loss roughly esti-
mated at $200,000, although the ex-
act amount cannot be definitely told
as all the records of stock on hand,
etc., were burned.
The fire started shortly after 5:30
o'clock and so fiercely did it burn that
everything available was reduced to
ashes in half an hour, but the ground
on which the building stood, and it
likely would have burned, too, had it
been composed of combustible mater-
ial. The only man on the field when
the fire started was the watchman,
Charles From. He had gone to one
end of the airdrome to punch the time
clock on his regular round and smell-
ed smoke. He hastily investigated
but found nothing wrong in that end
of the building.. He went through the
building but failed to discover any
fire until he entered the office’ when
he saw flames in the stock room ove?
the office. He promptly grabbed a
pyrene fire extinguisher and running
up the stairs to the stock room di-
rected the chemical upon the flames.
By that time, however, the fire had
eaten through the thin board partition
separating the office and stock room
from the main part of the building
and all the efforts of Mr. From fail-
ed to check the flames. In a very few
minutes the wings of the plane near-
est the office caught fire and they
burned almost like tinder. Mr. From
then sent in a fire alarm but while the
firemen rushed to the aviation field
it was useless to take along their fire-
fighting apparatus, as there is no
available water supply within reach
of the field. The flames quickly
spread from plane to plane and as the
gasoline tank of each one exploded
the flames would shoot in the air fif-
ty feet or more.
Now it just happened that on Wed-
nesday of last week field manager
Herbert Blakesley had received an or-
der transférring him to Bustleton
and Ferdinand Windsen was named
as his successor. Mr. Blakesley had
not yet left Bellefonte and at the first
alarm of the fire he and Mr. Windsen
| and practically all the force employed
' eastern district of the aerial mail
service and field inspector Egge, of
| Washington, were here on Tuesday
| and after looking over the ruins caus-
ied by the disastrous fire approved
| the requisition for a steel hangar
| 100x66 feet in size, which will mean
i about two hundred square feet more
floor space than the old hangar. The
citizens of the town, through Robert |
F. Hunter, acting for the board of |
trade, tendered the Department the
services of fifty men, or the equiva-
lent thereof, to assist in the erection
of the hangar when it arrives, and the
offer was accepted, though in doing
so the Department stated that the
present plans were to put larger ma-
chines on the New York to Chicago
route with the idea of only one regu-
lar stop, that at Cleveland, Ohio. But
the Bellefonte field will be maintain-
ed as an emergency and supply sta-
tion for the fliers when they feel the
necessity of coming down for either
oil or gas or repairs to their machine.
As to the radio station now almost
completed on the Bellefonte field, it
will be put in operation and used as
a guide to the fliers in cloudy and
foggy weather, and it is said that un-
der the system being installed and
with the equipment to be carried by
the planes, flyers can get their exact
location at any time and will be able
to land safely on a field without see-
ing the ground.
Of course, until the big mail carry-
ing machines are installed Bellefonte
will be a regular stop as it has been
in the past, and in the event the flight
from New York to Cleveland proves
too strenuous for the endurance of
the aviators.then the Bellefonte field
will be in shape for regular stops as
it has been in the past. Of course
two or more emergency planes will
always be kept here in case they are
needed. :
Bellefonters have always been more
or less superstitious about fires and
invariably when one occurs look for
two more, but on this occasion they
got more than they counted on,
though fortunately all the others were
of small loss.

Superintendent Stanton, of the Mrs. Sparks Elected State Regent of |
D. AR.
| Mrs. Edwin Erle Sparks, of State
| College, was elected State Regent of
{the D. A. R. at the twenty-third an-
‘ nual meeting of the organization in
| Pittsburgh last week over Mrs. H.
Grant Dreisbach, of Lewisburg, by a
vote of 213 to 154. The voting took
place Friday and the result was an-
nounced at the annual banquet held
i at the William Penn hotel on Friday
| evening.
. The contest for the highest office in
| the organization was probably the
hottest waged in some years within
| the confines - of that organization.
| Mrs. Sparks was championed by the
! Belefonte Chapter and aside from the
| local chapter her strength was in the
| eastern and western sections of the
| State. Mrs. Dreisbach drew the bulk
| of her support from the north-central
i part of the State. Both candidates
| had loyal bands of supporters and it
: is said that the virtues and qualifica-
| tions of each one was hurled back and
| forth throughout the meeting hall in
| a way that very much resembled an
| old-time political convention. 4
| As a matter of local interest it
might be stated that Mrs. Sparks’
name was presented to the conference
by Mrs. E. H. B. Callaway, of Belle-
{ fonte. One of the tellers to take up
| the ballots was Mrs. A. W. Smith, of
| Blairsville, but formerly of Storms-
| town, this county, who took a very |
active part in all the proceedings of
| the conference. The other officers
{ elected in addition to Mrs. Sparks
were as follows:
{Vice regent, Mrs. John Brown Her-
on, of Pittsburgh; ‘State historian,
{ Mrs. N. Howard Brown, of Valley
| Forge Chapter, Norristown; State li-
‘ bravian, Mrs. George H. .Stewart,
‘ Shippensburg; three State directors
were elected, viz.: Eastern district,
Miss Elizabeth Getts, regent of the
| Donegal chapter, Lancaster; Central
! district, Mrs. Clarence G. Crispen, re-
gent of Moses Vancampen chapter,
| Berwick; West district, Mrs. Samuel
' G. Rumbine, regent of Canadohta
! chapter, Titusville.

— Mr. James R. Hughes, of the
Bellefonte Academy, was honore
this week by receiving an invitation
for a reception to be given by Mr.
and Mrs. Rodman Wanamaker, of
New York, to His Royal Highness,
the Prince of Wales, in the Seventh
regiment armory, N. Y., this (Fri-
day) evening. Mr. Hughes and Mr.
Wanamaker were classmates at
Princeton college, and while the for-
mer was compelled to send his regrets
at not being able to accept the invi-
tation he very much appreciates the
spirit of loyalty to a fellow . class-
mate in which it was gent. Mr.
Hughes is probably the only
fonter to be so honored.
{the big White car water was hauled
' to the field from the Beaver farm and
although the metal gasoline barrels
were already steaming hot they were
| partially cooled with a douche of wa-
j ter when each in turn was grabbed by
some of the field employees and rolled
| out onto the road to a place of safety.
1 It was dangerous work and spectators
tried to keep the men from endanger-
i ing their lives but they stuck to it un-
| til every barrel was saved then turn-
| ed their attention to saving the gaso-
i line pump house. In this they were
| also successful, but as it was the roof |
{ of the building was badly charred. It
| was extremely dangerous work but
i every man did his duty valiantly and
| some of them even shed tears over the
i fact that they couldn’t save more.
Of the aviators Ellis was probably
the most affected of all to see his ship
burn, as it was one he has flown ever
: since he has been on the mail route
and he had a wondrously friendly
feeling for it.
Most of the aviators lost their
heavy leather coats and other effects.
Maurice Kelly lost a typewriter and
a multiple telegraph key. Carpenter
George Eberhart had been doing some
work at the field and had his box of
tools in the building, and those were
also destroyed. He estimates his loss
at one hundred dollars.
Hardly had the building been barn-
ed to the ground until Mr. Blakesley
| got busy on the telephone, got the
| field at Mineola and also Cleveland
and asked that a machine be sent here
from each place, and both came in on
Sunday. He also secured an office
which the State Highway Department
had been using in Buffalo Run valley
and bright and early Sunday morn-
ing it was taken down in sections and
transferred to the field. Carpenters
and electricians were busy all day and
by evening the office was in shape,
equipped with telegraph and tele-
phone instruments, electric light and
n borrowed typewriter and requisi-
tions had been made out for the var-
jous supplies and stock needed. A ma-
chine shop had also been erected.
A new steel hangar furnished by
the department will be erected to take
the place of the one destroyed by fire,
and another such catastrophe will
| thus be avoided. The only way the
fire can be accounted for is that it
must have caught from the stovepipe
leading from the stove in the office up
through the stockroom. While it is
a big loss, and one that no human
agency could avert, every man con-
| nected with the service, from Mr.
| Blakesley, Mr. Windsen and the fly-
ers to the watchman on the field dis-
played the utmost loyalty to the gov-
| ernment in doing their best to save
| what they could.

mystery, as the only thing in the

Dear Mr. Editor: —
I wish to thank the members of the
Logan and Undine fire companies,
through the columns of your paper,
for the remarkably prompt response
on their part to the call for help at
the Academy fire last Monday morn-
ing. I have never witnessed quicker
nor more successful action by our fire-
men. It certainly prevented z most
destructive conflagration. ;
When volunfeer firemen are expect-
ed to leave their offices, counting
rooms and workshops at a moment's
notice, they should not be encumbered
by inadequate equipment. They
should have the very best placed at
their command. They have made the
matter of fire apparatus a close study
and should know what they need and
desire. There is no economy in cheap |
apparatus. We have valuable prop-
erties in Bellefonte. The closing

Twenty-four Liquor License Applica-
‘tions Filed for 1920.
Down in Kentucky the judges de-
clare war time prohibition now uncon-
stitutional and whiskey is being sold
to any one and every one who can put
up the stiff price of seventy-five dol-
lars. a case of twelve quart bottles,
and they are likely short quarts at
that. In Chicago and New York the
judges declare the law is good and
can be enforced, and between the two
decisions the average landlord is in a
quandary and don’t know what to do.
But there are twenty-four men’ in
Centre county who don’t intend to be
caught napping because just that
number of applications have been fil-
ed for liquor license for the year be-
ginning April 1st, 1920.
Under a ruling by Judge Quigley
license court in Centre county is
held on the first Saturday after the
first Monday in December, and as
the law requires all applications
to be filed at least twenty days
before court last Saturday was
the last day for filing in Centre coun-
ty and the list was just twenty-four.
All but one of the above number are
landlords, wholesalers and the Phil-
ipsburg brewery who have kept their
old license good by the payment of
the license fee monthly or every
three months, as the case may be.
The new application is from the pres-
ent landlord of the Spring Mills hotel.
Four applications have been filed
by landlords of Bellefonte, mo appli-
cation being filed by landlord H. S.
Ray, of the Brockerhoff house. Mr.
Ray dropped his old license several
months ago and decided it was not
worth while taking chances on the
constitutional prohibition being de-
clared unconstitutional to make appli-
catiom for a license mext year.

Seven mountains one day last week
Harry Miller, of Boalsburg, shot a
wild cat which measured four feet and
ten inches from the tip of the nose to
the tip of the tail. It was one of the
biggest bob cats ever killed in that
section, and Mr. Miller will likely
have the skin mounted and preserve
it as a memento of his hunter’s skill.
——Clyde Williams, of Port Matil-
da, is in the Bellefonte hospital with
a broken ankle sustained in an auto
accident last Friday, when the ma-
chine which he was driving from Port
Matilda to Julian ran into a ditch and
overturned, owing to a broken steer-
(pening Day.
Contrary to general expectations
very few wild turkeys were killed in
Centre county last Saturday, the
opening day of the season. Not one
of the birds was brought in by Belle-
fonte hunters, although a few were
seen, but at such a distance away that
they were cut of range.
¥ is reported that two soms of G.
G. Fink, of Husten township, each got
a turkey and that several were shot
in the neighborhood of Unionville and
several by Pennsvalley hunters, but
the total number bagged in the coun-
ty was very small and no eomparisen
to the kill on the opening day in for-
mer years when anywhere from twen-
ty-five to fifty turkeys would be
brought in the first day of the season.
A report has been current this week
that some unknown hunter ran into a
flock of turkeys on the mountain
above Fillmore last week, before the
season opened, and killed some of the
birds, leaving two dead ones lie on the
ground where they fell. Just how
much truth there is in the report the
writer is unable to say, but the story
is worth investigation on the part of
some enterprising game warden and
if true, and the guilty parties locat-
ed, they should be made to pay the
ing gear.
