hay to market. And just here it
might be said that when they arrive
in Bellefonte, those who bring their

The Bellefonte Academy is
without doubt enjoying the best year
in the history. of that institution.
Since the holiday vacation there has
been an increase of twelve in the stu-
dent body, the majority of the addi-
tional students coming to the Acade-
jy from other preparatory schools.
This, in itself, is evidence of the high
character and

' commendation upon the good judg-

and also just cause for the people of

Association Formed to Boost Belle-
fonte During 1920.
Two dozen or more merchants and
business men of Bellefonte met at Co-
hen’s department store last Thursday
evening to discuss the business out-
look for the current year. Walter
Cohen acted as temporary chairman
and Hassell Montgomery temporary
secretary. It was the general senti-
ment of those present that some con-
certed action should be taken toward
stabilizing the business of Bellefonte
and in no way can this be better done
than by securing new and varied in-
dustries. As everybody was heartily
in favor of co-operation it was decid-
ed to organize the Bellefonte Busi-
ness Men’s association and the follow-
ing were elected as officers:
President—Walter Cohen.
Vice President—George Hazel.
Treasurer—H. C. Yeager.
Secretary—Charles Schlow.
As evidence of the fact that the or-
ganization is not to be merely a per-
functory one the membership fee was
fixed at $25.00, with monthly dues of
$5.00. With such an amount of mon-
ey at stake every member will be vi-
tally interested not only in the organ-
ization but in doing all he can to im-
prove the business situation of the
town. A rather extensive program
for future work and activities of the
organization was outlined, and part of
the fund realized from member-
ship fees and dues will be used in ad-
vertising the advantages of the town,
booming Bellefonte’s stores and in in-
teresting prospective industries to the
point of locating here. It is the pur-
pose of the association to work in har-
mony with the Bellefonte Board of
Trade and all other organizations of
interests that have for their aim the
good of the town.
business men signed the membership
roll and paid down their twenty-five
dollars membership fee, as follows:

Brockerhoff : House
Dating from last Saturday evening
the Brockerhoff house will be run
strictly upon the European plan and
no meals will be served to roomers or
transient guests. Landlord H. S. Ray
gives ag the reason for this diverg-
his inability to get and keep the help
neededito conduct the hotel on the
American plan in the manner he de-
sires dnd-as it should be conducted.
The hotel will be conducted under the
new ‘plan for one month as a try-out,
and if it proves satisfactory will be
continued on the European plan with-
out restaurant service at least until
labor conditions become more stabil-
ized. :
Most of the old boarders at the ho-
tel will continue as roomers and have
made arrangements to get their meals
at the Brant house: Charles F. Cook
and daughter, Miss Anna, who only
recently closed their home and took
rooms at the Hotel, have taken rooms
and will take their meals at the Brant

May Mean Another Railroad Through
: : Centre County.
In another column of this issue of
the “Watchman” will be found an ad-
vertisement in effect that application
has been made to the Public Service
Commission for approval of the re-
organization of the New York, Pitts-
burgh and Chicago Railway company,
the purpose of which is to construct
and operate a railroad from a point
near Harmony, Pa., to a point near
Allentown. This is the project that
was sprung some years ago and the
Froute as surveyed at that time ‘ran
through Centre county, crossing Bald
Eagle mountain in the vicinity, of
Stormstown and running through the
Barrens went down the south side of
Pennsvalley. Whether the move that
has now started will result in the
building of this road on the lines of
the old survey, is of course unknown
i at this time; but if it is intended as
at that time stated to be as near, an
air line as possible from west to east
it will undoubtedly run through Cen-
tre county, as we are right in the line.
Enlistments Wanted for Troop L.
A cavalry troop for Bellefonte has
been included in the personnel of the
new National Guard of Pennsylvania.
Frederick Reynolds has been commis-
sioned captain of the troop and Roy
Grove first lieutenant. These officers
are now desirous of recruiting the
troop to the required strength as
quickly as possible. All former sol-
diers are desired and urged to re-en-
list for either one or three years. For
the purpose of enlistment the armory
will be open every Tuesday evening
from 7:30 until 9 o'clock. Up to this
time twenty or more men of the old
troop have re-enlisted, but more are
wanted. Also any man in good phys-
| ical condition, and between 18 and 40
years old, can enlist.

conservation and propagation of game
the State Game Commission has de-
cided to establish fifteen game pre-

next few years, seven of them just as
soon as lands can be bought in the
central part of the State from the
proceeds of hunters’ licenses. One of
the new preserves is to be located at
the junction of Clearfield, Centre,
Clinton and Cameron counties. Cen-

— The Supreme court on Monday
denied permission for the New Jersey
i retail liquor dealers’ association to
bring original proceedings in that
| court to test the constitutionality of
' the national prohibition amendment,
ment will become effective at 12:01
o’clock tonight. All hopes that the
wets have had that something might
turn up to stay the putting into effect
of the prohibition law have been par-
ried at every angle, and the country
' will now be in a position to test the
efficiency of the law, its advantages,
‘ field, who now fills the office of Unit-
{ ed States marshall for the western
| district of Pennsylvania, had a pretty
| fair inkling of the responsibilities of
| that office last week when he was in
| charge of a group of forty-five feder-
al prisoners which he had to convey
| from Pittsburgh to the federal prison
| at Atlanta, Ga. Marshall Short de-
| termined to take no chances on the
prisoners escaping on the way down

in their berths, took all their clothing

jon the train.
| “A Night in Honolulu,” which
i comes to the opera house next Mon-
| day, January 19th, is a story of Ha-
| waii which immediately suggests a
myriad of thoughts to the stranger,
especially the American. One pic-
tures Hawaii as a land of sunshine,
of flowers and of music. One cannot
bring the sunshine of Hawaii to our
land, nor the flowers in their glorious
radiance, but the music is another
matter. The Americans have taken
the beautiful, wistful music of Ha-
waii to their hearts as they have no
other. The quaint’ “Ukelele” now
holds a favored place in our homes.
In “A Night in Honolulu” one may
hear the veritable native musicians
chant their weird melodies, hear the
mournful prayer of death or the gay,
care-free hula music. It all has a pe-
| culiar fascination for us and is an op-
| portunity not to be missed.
| — Springtime is fast approaching
| and moving day on the first of April
| will be here almost before we realize
it, and that annual epoch in the lives
| of many people is the excuse for this
‘item. Every day, almost, this office
| has inquiries as to available houses
| for rent and quite naturally we have
| no authentic information to give out.
The reason is self-evident, there
"aren't any. That is, there aren’t any
, modern-equipped houses in Bellefonte
for rent, unless some one dies or
moves away and then there are al-
ways so many applicants for the same
that it is like buying a ticket in a lot-
tery to get the house. Houses for
rent is the one thing Bellefonte needs
' and needs badly if an effort is to be
' made to spread. out'in the industrial
line. In fact the only way to get a
desirable house these days is to buy
it, and it isn’t everybody that can do
! that, or wants to do it.
—Jjust at this time, when the lo-
cal fire companies are asking for ad-
ditienl fire: fighting apparatus, some
| Bellefonte property owners believe in
preparing . for: any contingency.
Among the number is our good
friend, Capt. Robert F. Hunter, who
last Friday took home" a patent fire
extinguisher to use in case of emer-
gency. Now of course Bob calculated
that it was no trouble for a man to
handle one of the extinguishers but
as to, a woman, well she would have
to be shown. So he called Mrs. Hun-
ter into the room and proceeded to
show her. “Now you see,” said Bob,
“you just give this a little turn like
that,” and then it started. The ex-
tinguisher proved to be one of the lit-
tle automatics that goes off when the
seal is punctured by a little turn of a
thumb screw and don’t stop going off
until it is empty. Needless to say Mr.
Hunter’s demonstration was
real-like, but unfortunately he almost
extinguished himself and everything
in the room before he could get out-
side the house and leave the contrap-
tion bleed itself to death. :
Former Centre Countian a Suicide.
Orvis C. Walker, a native of-Brush
valley, committed suicide on Sunday
at his home at Norwood by hanging
himself with, a window cord in the
stable in the rear of his home. Orvis
moved to Norwood from Rebersburg
in October and was employed at the
plant of the Sun Shipbuilding compa-
ny, at Chester. The cause of his act
is not known.
He was 45 years, 7 months and 15
days old and was a son of Thomas W.
and Anna Walker, of Miles township.
He was a member of the Masonic fra-
ternity, the I. O. O. F. and the Luth-
eran church. He was married to Miss
Elizabeth Haines, of Rebersburg, who
survives with his mother and two
brothers, Lloyd B., of Pitcairn, and
Victor I., of Glassport, Pa. The re-
mains were taken to Rebersburg
where private funeral services were
held and burial made yesterday after-
and such being the case the amend-

County Meeting to be Held in Belle-
" fonte Next Monday Evening.
Arrangements have been completed
for a meeting of the newly organized
Centre county branch of the Chil-
dren’s Aid society of Western Penn-
sylvania, which will be held in the
court house next Monday evening, the
19th instant, at 8 o’clock, and it is
earnestly urged that all women inter-
, ested in this important work make a
, special effort to be present. At least
| one representative woman from every
| district should feel it her duty to lend
- her assistance in every way possible,
; as it is only by the hearty co-opera-
: tion of the outlying districts that the
. movement will meet with the success
it so richly deserves.
The object of the society is the wel-
fare and care of dependent and neg-
lected children. Almost every dis-
trict has a child, or children, who for
| one reason or another have not the
| opportunity of developing good citi-
zenship upon arriving at manhood or
; womanhood. The aim of the society
iis to protect these by providing prop-
er homes, in private families in some
| instances, and in others a home in its
| well-equipped schools maintained es-
| pecially for that purpose. What are
! known as incorrigible children are pri-
| marily under the jurisdiction of the
| juvenile court, and in some instances
it becomes necessary for them to be
sent to one of the State institutions
commonly known as reform schools.
All incorrigibles are naturally neg-
lected and a large percentage of them
i dependent children. However, not by
any means are all neglected or de-
pendent children incorrigibles. As a
! matter of fact, only a small percent-
age are, and with proper environment
‘and encouragement, such as the Chil-
dren’s Aid society aims to and actu-
ally does give, develop and mature in-
to good citizens.
It is therefore earnestly hoped
that as many of the representative
women of the country as possible be
prasent at this meeting.
The local organization, recently cf-
fected, has arranged to have present
several of the most prominent women
in the State along this line of work,
chief of whom will be Mrs. Thomas
C. White, of Mercer, Pa., president of
the society and formerly its actuary,
‘who is the recognized leader of the
movement in Western Pennsylvania.
No woman who has the welfare of
these unfortunate children at heart
can afford to miss hearing Mrs.
White, who has so kindly volunteered
to give us the benefit of her long and
valuable experience, and who will,
without question, materially help in
arousing the courage and enthusiasm
necessary to carry on this great work.

Realistic Pictures of Near East to be
Shown in Bellefonte.
““Qut of the Land of Sorrows,” is
the title ‘of a soul stirring moving
picture that will be shown in the Lyr-
ic theatre, Bellefonte, Tuesday even-
‘ing, January 20th, at 8 o'clock. This
film will depict upon the screen the
story of the anguish and destitution
that is prevalent in the Near East,
and will give first-hand, undisputed
‘evidence of the reign of terror that
the blood-thirsty Turk has spread
among the christian people of Arme-
nia; but the picture is without many
of the gruesome features that have
characterized movies of ‘a similar
type. : :
Dr. Lincoln Wirt, minister and au-
thor, was sent out in January, 1919,
by the American committee for Ar-
menian relief to make a survey of the
conditions in Turkey, Syria, and Pal-
estine. He was accompanied by G. R.
Carrier, a motion picture photogra-
pher. They took 20,000 feet of film
and 700 still pictures. Sa
Some of the pictures were taken
from an aeroplane flying 200 miles
across Palestine, while thousands of
feet were ground out from a platform
lashed in front of a locomotive as
their train passed through the Tau-
rus mountain ranges. As they plung-
ed into tunnel after tunnel—thirty-
two in the course of thirty miles and
at an elevation of 5000 feet—the cam-
era recorded mile after mile of moun-
tain scenery as grand as any to be
found in the Alps or Rockies.
The film will show the capture by
the British of Ishmael Haki Bey, who
was responsible for the deportation
of 40,000 Armenians. Many of the
cities of the Near East, where mas-
sacres and slaughters took place, will
be portrayed on the screen, while
photographs will be shown of the
starving inmates of the refugee city
of Damascus. Palestine is viewed
from an airplane and visits are made
to the sea of Galilee and to the Leb-
anon mountains.
Dr. Wirt, who made the tour of the
Near East, and who assisted the pho-
tographer, will accompany the picture
and will lecture as the film is shown
upon the screen. This exhibition is
under the direction of the Near East
relief in Centre county, and the pro-
ceeds will go toward the county ap-
portionment of $7720. The place, the
Lyric theatre. The time, Tuesday
evening, January 20th, at 8 o’clock.
The admission, 25 cents. Matinee,
Thursday, 4:15. Children ten cents.
All indications are that the
year 1920 will be a banner year in the
automobile business in Centre county,
as well as all over the country. Lo-
cal dealers have already been assign-
ed their cars for the year and in most
cases the number is well below what
they feel they ought to have, judging
from past sales. Under such condi-
tions persons contemplating buying
cars will need to keep in touch with
[ the market else they may have trou-
ble in getting early delivery.
