Ask Borough Council to Attend a
Meeting to Enlighten Women
on Civic Duty.
The women of Bellefonte do not in-
tend to be caught napping when they
finally get the ballot as was evidenced
at the regular meeting of council on
Monday evening when that official
body was invited to attend a meeting
at the High school building on Tues-
day evening, January 27th, called for
the purpose of imparting to women
the rights of the ballot and their civic
duties when they become legalized
voters under the laws of Pennsylva-
Every member of council was pres-
ent at the meeting, which was quite
an improvement over the usual at-
tendance during the past six months
or a year.
Howard Smead presented a written
application for appointment as a po-
lice officer of Bellefonte and the same
was referred to the Fire and Police
committee for recommendation.
The list of standing committees for
the next two years was announced as
follows, the first named gentleman in
every case being the chairman.
Finance—F'auble, Richard, Beezer.
Street—Harris, Richard, Fauble.
Water—Cunningham, Brouse, Beez-
Fire and Police—Flack, Cunning-
ham, Knisely.
Market—Knisely, Brouse, Flack.
Sanitary—Brouse, Harris, Knisely.
Village Improvement — Beezer,
Flack, Knisely.
Special—Richard, Fauble,
Harris, Cunningham.
The secretary read a telegram from
State Highway Commissioner Lewis
S. Sadler requesting council to take
immediate action on the application
for the building of the state road on
Bishop, Spring and Pine streets.
A communication was received
from the State Board of Health in-
quiring as to what action had been
taken toward the erection of a sew-
age disposal plant, as per the Depart-
ment’s notice in 1908. The matter
was referred to the Street committee
and borough solicitor.
The offer of George M. Gamble, re=
ported at last meeting of council, to
erect a suitable building, equip = the |
same with a water wheel and genera-
tor and furnish the borough electrici-
ty for light and pumping water for
the sum of $7.50 a day was submitted
in writing.
. A lengthy communication was re-
. ceived from borough manager J. D.
Seibert recommending the purchase
. of two combination chemical and hose
trucks for the fire department, and
. giving at some length his reasons for
believing that they would be ample
. for the needs of the borough at the
present time.
Mr. Harris, of the Street commit-
tee, reported a bill from Isaac Baney
for $75.00 for injuries to himself and
horse when the animal tramped
through a plank on the Willowbank
street bridge before it was rebuilt.
Mr. Harris reported that the horse
had been off work only five days. The
- matter was referred to the Street
committee and borough solicitor.
Mr. Cunningham presented a brief
- report of the borough manager spec-
- ifying the thawing out of several
water pipes on the streets. Mr. Cun-
ningham also reported that the water
register had been completely gone
over and brought up to date and that
- the new assessment will show an in-
* crease in water taxes of approximate-
ly $1250.00 over that of former years.
© The Fire and Police committee rec-
ommended the election of Elmer Yer-
ger as a policeman for the borough,
which was promptly done by council.
The Special committee reported
that nothing further has developed in
the adjusting of the water pumping
question between the borough and
State-Centre Electric company, and
recommended that the balance due the
company for pumping water during
the borough’s experimental year be
paid, and council authorized the same.
Council voted to approve the elec-
tion of Charles Anderson as chief fire
marshall, Allen Waite first assistant,
and Frank Hull second assistant.
J. D. Seibert was re-elected borough
manager for a period of two years
without a dissenting vote.
The question of council’s position
on the building of the state road on
Bishop, Spring and Pine streets was
pretty thoroughly discussed. The bid
for this piece of road is a little more
than $38,000, and the borough’s share
will be something over $11,000. The
County Commissioners have approv-
ed the application so far as the coun-
ty’s portion of the expense is concern-
ed, and as approximately five-sixths
of the property owners along the
route of the road have signed a peti-
tion asking for its construction, the
ordinance providing for the building
of the road passed first reading and
the secretary was instructed to notify
the State Highway Department of the
favorable action of council.
Under the head of old business
highway engineer D. C. Stackpole’s,
statement of the account of contrac-
tor R. B. Taylor was taken up but ac-
tion on the same was postponed until
next meeting night to permit the
Street committee to go over the state-
ment with Mr. Stackpole and check
it up.
At this juncture president Walker
asked the Fire and Police committee
if they were ready to report on the
question of the purchase of additional
fire fighting apparatus, but members
of the committee requested that the
matter be deferred until the ‘next
meeting of council, as they had as yet
not conferred on the matter.
A representative of the La France
fire apparatus company was present
and requested the privilege of submit-
ting bids when council had decided on
what kind of apparatus to purchase,
and he was assured that the same
privilege will be given his company
as accorded to any and all builders of
such equipment.
Mr. Richard called attention of
council to the fact that careful consid-
eration should be given to the request
presented to council at the last meet-
ing by the Krader Motor company for
permission to make some very decid-
ed changes on the street at the old
Curtin property, and the Street com-
mittee was instructed to confer with
the borough solicitor as to the prop-
erty rights of an owner where a build-
ing is to be used for business pur-
. Bills to the amount of $332.67 were
approved by council.
Before adjournment
Walker requested the various com-
mittees to make a careful estimate of
the amount of money that will be re-
quired to bear their expense of the
current year, not counting the unusu-
al expense of the building of the state
road or purchase of new fire fighting
equipment. This estimate will be
used as a basis for laying the millage
for the current year. Inasmuch as
the millage question is not settled un-
til some time in April the various
committees will probably be governed
in their estimate by the forthcoming
auditor’s statement of the amount of
moneys spent by each department last
There being no other business coun-
cil adjourned.
Children Bought and Sold Seals.
The following letter of appreciation
was received by Miss Helen E. C.
Overton, chairman of the Christmas
seal campaign for Bellefonte, from
Ira E. Foutz, publicity director for
the State and as it boosts the boys
and girls for the work they did we
publish the same to show them how
their activities were appreciated:
“On behalf of the Pennsylvania so-
ciety for the prevention of tuberculo-
sis I write to thank you, and through
you the teachers and scholars under
your direction, for the wonderful as-
sistance given by the public school¢
‘in the Christmas seal sale of 1919.
“The aid given was beyond the
fondest hopes of both the State seal
organization and local committees. In
some localities the seal sale was a suc-
cess only because of the efforts put
forth by the schools. In previous
seal sales the schools were by no
means laggards but this time all the
enthusiasm of all former years seem-
ed to be rolled into one huge boost.
“Figures at hand show the big push
given the campaign by the girls and
boys. And it is not alone the aid giv-
en the actual sales that is gratifying.
It would be hard to estimate the edu-
cational value. - Many of the thous-
ands of children who bought and sold
seals learned the lessons about keep-
ing themselves healthy and avoiding
tuberculosis they will never forget.
After all it is the children we must
get if we are to conquer the white
The seal sale itself was a big suc-
cess in Pennsylvania. With the mon-
ey secured and the health lessons giv-
en we are confident a real start has
been made in the intensive program
planned to overcome the scourge that
took 12,885 lives in this State in 1918,
a greater relative number than in any
previous year except 1906 and 1907.
The war and influenza have caused
an increase in the tuberculosis death
rate in recent years. We are sure the
schools will do their full share in the
greater fight to be waged against this
insidious menace.
Will you not convey to your schools
our appreciation for an unequalled
service whole heartedly rendered to a
cause that so closely touches every

LOCKE.—The very sudden death
of Mrs. M. J. Locke, wife of Dr.
Locke, on Monday, was a distinct
shock to her friends in Bellefonte,
many of whom did not know of her
illness, let alone serious condition.
During the Holidays she suffered an
attack of the grip and shortly after
New Years pneumonia developed.
She was under the care of a profes-
sional nurse until the latter part of
last week when she had so far recov-
ered as to be up and around. On
Sunday she locked after the prepara-
tion of the family dinner but was
taken worse Sunday night and while
her condition was serious enough
Monday morning it did not seem
alarming. After the doctor had eat-
en his luncheon Monday noon he sat
by his wife’s bedside while the nurse
went to lunch and it was just at 1:30
o'clock when Mrs. Locke passed
away so suddenly that no one realized
the end so near until it had actually

away on Monday at the home of his
parents, Mr. and Mrs. George C.
Waite, of Bellefonte, following an ill-
ness which dates back to November,
1918. He came to Bellefonte last
September from his home in Trafford
City, hoping that the change and a
rest would prove beneficial but short-
ly after coming to Bellefonte his con-
dition became worse and he continued
to decline until his death.
A son of George C. and Sarah
Sharp Waite he was born at Howard
quite thirty-three years of age. His
parents came to Bellefonte when he
was but a child and his life was spent
here until eleven years ago when he
went to work for the Pennsylvania
railroad company in the yards at Pit-
cairn. He was married to Miss Mar-
garet Coble, of Lemont, in 1912, and
since that time they have made their
homa in Trafford City, Mr. Waite

industrious workman.
He is survived by his wife and four
