Bemorrali a
Bellefonte, Pa., April 9, 1920.
In the game of life—for it is a game,
And nobody can gainsay it—
The gestion isn’t the wealth or fame
You get, but the way you play it;
You ought to struggle for victory,
But if you must go without it,
You should cheerfully bow to fate’s de-
And be a good sport without it.
A “Good Sport” isn’t one who blows
His cash in a constant revel.
But a chap who's square with his friends
or foes J
And who doesn’t fear man or devil;
The kind of fellow who meets despair
And cheerfully dares to flout it,
‘Who, whate’er life brings him, joy or care,
Is always a sport about it.
So the way to play is the best you can,
However the game is going,
To lose with a smile, like a regular man,
Or win with the hint of crowing;
So when the Reaper shall end the strife
(As he certainly will, don’t doubt it)
You can face your death as you face your
And be a good sport about it.
—By Berton Bradley.
Enthusiasm, earnestness, and deter-
mination to “carry on,” marked the
spirit of the Thrift Conference held at
Altoona, Pa., on Saturday, March 27th,
1920. About one hundred delegates
were in attendance, representing eight
counties of Group 3, Savings Division
of the Third Federal Reserve District.
After a delicious luncheon served at
noon, in the Logan House parlors, the
meeting was called to order by W.
Harrison Walker, Esq., of Bellefonte,
Pa., who is the Chairman of Group 3.
Mr. Walker gave an informal report of
the good work done by the twenty-four
counties of this Group. He stated that
the per capita savings of the whole
United States is 13 cents; of the en-
tire Third Federal Reserve District is
17 cents; while the per capita savings
of the counties of Group 3 is 28 cents.
This is a wonderful showing, when it
is realized that many of the district in
these counties are populated by miners
and mill workers of foreign national-
ity. Much of this high percentage is
due to the excellent and thorough work
done in the schools. Several schools
have invested from $10000.00 to
$16000.00 in Government Stamps. In
some districts that are composed al-
most entirely of Italian children, those
children have joined the school saving
society 100 per cent. strong, being more
thrifty than the children of American
stock. We are told that five of the twen-
ty-four counties of Group 3 have organ-
ssi ————
with the school girls, the clerks, work-
ers of all kinds, they all try to look as
if they were going to a party rather
than to business. These false standards
cause many girls to drop out of high
school. We should do what we can to
face facts, to set a standard of simpli-
city to bring all people to live within
their means and to refuse to buy be-
yond that. When the sellers see that
the people have stopped demanding
and will not pay the prices asked, pro-
fiteering will die.
Mr. Walker then introduced Miss
Florence M. Dibert, of Johnstown, Pa.,
the President of the State Federation
of Pennsylvania Women, representing
60000 women of the state. She is also
Vice-Chairman of the Savings Division
for Cambria County. Miss Deibert
made a strong plea for Thrift, not only
of money but of time, energy and hu-
man beings. Under the head of Thrift
in Human Beings, she stressed educa-
tion as the strongest factor. ‘We. should
see to it that the children are kept in
school, that the schools are kept open,
and that the teachers are paid well and
kept in the schools. “Save the chil-
dren and the children will save the
money. What does it matter that the
nations treasury is full if we are to
have a nation of illiterates? There
must be a National
cation, who shall sit with the other
cabinet officers at the President's
council-table, and who shall present
the needs of the children of our Na-
tion. That is the truest Thrift.” These
were some of the ringing messages of
Miss Dibert.
The next speaker introduced was
Miss Edith Pitt Chace, Director of
Home Economics of the Pennsylvania
State College, and State Chairman for
Thrift of the American Home Hconom-
fcs Association. Miss Chace stressed
the necessity of having a plan for
spending or of budget makind in the
American family, and stated that the
percentage of distribution of the in-
come for various purpoes had changed
greatly in the past few years. The
proportion required for food and cloth-
ing has increased materially for the
same number of persons, having a
small income.
The speaker emphasized the need of
a simple system of keeping household
and personal accounts and called at-
tention to the fact that while there are
many account books available, many of
them are too complicated to be practi-
Mr. Bentz, Superintendent of Schools
in Ebensburg, and Chairman of the
Savings Division of Cambria County,
was then introduced. Mr. Bentz paid
high tribute to the work of the school
principals and teachers in the success
of the Thrift Movement. Mr. Bentz
urged that we emphasize a great prin-
ciple behind the Thrift Movement,
namely, the practice of true economy
through life, a principle of self-denial
for some future good, not a mere sav-
ing now, in order to spend lavishly
next year; that children be urged to
make plans for their future education
and training and save their money for
that purpose; that a Saving Stamp
should be a means of teaching the true
meaning of Thrift.
The next speaker of the afternoon
was Dr. A. Enfield, Chairman of the
Savings Division of Bedford County.
This county stands second in the per
capita savings of its population, which
is 62 cents per person. Dr. Enfield
encouraged the Thrift idea because it
is a movement which lays the founda-
tion for future patriotism, as well as
ized school savings societies in every |
school in the county; nine have Savings’
Societies in over seventy of their
schools; and only three counties have
failed to organize a school Savings
Society and become affiliated with the
Savings Society Section of the Third |
Federal Reserve District. It was urg- |
ed that the savings proposition be car- |
ried farther and that people should be
discouraged from cashing in their.
Liberty Bonds at a discount, hut:
rather they should be urged to hold
them, and at time of maturity receive
full value. People should also be urg-
ed to clip their coupons from their.
Liberty Bonds and immediately invest
the proceeds therefrem in Thrift and
Savings Stamps and Treasury Savings
The speaker paid high tribute to
the work done by women in all dis-
tricts along the line of Thrift, Saving,
and Investment; he mentioned parti-
cularly Mrs. M. Elizabeth Olewine of
Bellefonte. She has worked with all
of the Women’s organizations, schools,
lodges and church societies and has
been very successful in having the peo-
ple identified with these organizations
invest their funds in these Government
Securities. Mr. Walker asked for a
practical application of the Thrift Idea
by every representative present, in re-
fusing to buy unnecessary articles and
in refusing to buy where profiteering
seemed to set the price of articles. He
asked all present not only to preach!
Thrift but to practice it staunchly. |
The Chairman then introduced Miss
Jessica Donnelly, of the Department of |
Justice, and Executive Secretary of the !
Federal Fair Price Committee in Phila- |
delphia. Miss Donnelly made many |
practical suggestions. She insisted
that we all remember that when we
criticize the Government we find fault
with ourselves, that the Government is
the voice of the citizens and is made |
by the citizens. Cooperation on the
part of the right-thinking citizens can
bring about changes. She made clear
that just now it is not the extremely
rich the very poor, nor the salaried
class that is doing the lavish buying.
It is the great industrial class, which |
has more money than it ever had be-
fore. They are spending and living
away beyond their usual standards.
That is one reason why it is wise to
teach the children to save and to
spend wisely, so that the next genera-
tion of industrial workers will have a
balance of judgment which thie gener-
ation does not have. Miss Donnelly
said that one of the strongest factors
i curities obtainable,
present needs. The passing genera-
tion may be too old to be taught Thrift,
said the speaker, but the rising gener-
ation can be reached and must be in-
fluenced to practice economy and to
know the meaning of Thrift.
The last speaker introduced was Mr.
C. M. Taylor of J. C. Blair & Co., of
Huntingdon, Pa., and who during the
War was ‘Chairman of the Savings
Committee for Huntingdon County. Mr,
Taylor gave a business man’s view of
the Thrift Movement and spoke his be-
lief in it. It ismotonlya Movement to
help the Government and its transient
needs but a Movement to give them a
sense of standing with their nation. It
will be a permanent Movement and will
tend to make the great common Dpeo-
ple lend to their Government rather
than to private enterprises.
Mr. Walker then quoted from a re-
cent letter from the Treasury Depart-
ment of the United States, saying:
“The Savings Movement is on a firm
and permanent basis. Aside from the
fact that the proceeds from the sales
of the securities will assist in serving
the cash requirements of the Treasury,
the Movement is one of the very es-
sence of fundamental economics, af-
fording a tangible means of combating
high prices and extravagence and the
ills that follow in their train. Economy
must be the watch-word of the Gov-
ernment and the people in public and
private finance, and we cannot expect
the return of a normal healthy con-
diion unless the people produce more,
save more, and spend less. That is
the doctrine of the Savings Movement.
It can be vitalized and reduced to real-
ity only if all the agencies of the
country which are capable of reaching
the millions of investors, or those who
should be investors, however small,
will lend their cooperation.” Mr.
Walker then asked his volunteer co-
workers to go back to their districts
feeling that they were engaged in a
helpful, patriotic and permanent Move-
ment, and to carry with them four
precepts, to be put into practice in
every home: first, save a certain
definite amount from every weekly or"
monthly wage; secondly, invest these
savings in some of the very best se-
preferably with the
Government; thirdly, buy only what is
abolutely necessary and has a full
penny’s value; and fourthly, use what
is purchased with the same care as you
would use the money which purchased
An open meeting was then held,
ideas were exchanged and sincerest
thanks were extended to Chairman
in American standards of living which | Walker for the interesting and help-
brought up the prices was our great
regard for the looks of things.
(and that includes both men and wo-
men,) want the best looking steaks, cut
from a certain portion of the beef; we
want a whole slice of ham at 60 cents
a pound, rather than small end slices
at 20 cents; we want whole kernals of
rice rather than cheaper broken ker-
nels; we want extra fine personal ser-
vice in the stores, but we do not want
to pay for it. We want exclusive
goods but we want bargain-prices;
many illustrations were brought up to
prove this point. The speaker insisted
that every individual and everv family
must have a definite idea how much
should be spent for the various items
of living. Call it a budget, or what
vou will, strict accounts must be kept,
a cast-iron rule must be made, and
this rule must be maintained. Only by
so doing can any change in prices come
about. Ease off the demand in any
line and the price will fall. A budget
will discourage indiscriminate and ex-
travagant buying. One of the worst
features of present-day buying in large
industrial centres is the installment
plan and buying on credit. Un-
fortunately the sellers understand hu-
man psychology and are pushing this
kind of purchasing. Wherever Thrift-
workers have a voice or influence they
should decry this sort of buiness. An-
other thing that should be worked
against by fathers, mothers, teachers,
and superintendents, is over-dressing
or inappropriate dressing. Beginning

Penn State Adopts Near East
phans. :
Penn State students have adopted
twenty-six Near East orphans in a
campaign that has extended over the
pest few weeks and which was recent-
ly brought to a close. The 300 wom-
en students have subscribed to the
support of eight of these Armenian
children, and a number of the frater-
nities have combined to adopt the re-
mainder. The necessary subscription
for the support of each orphan was
readily raised in the various student
groups, and monthly returns will be
made to the Near East Relief head-
Penn State was the first college to be
asked to wage such a campaign, and
the work is being continued now in
other colleges us good results. State
has been called upon in many instanc-
es to set the pace in charitable cam-
paigns. Red Cross and war subscrip-
tions of the past few years have been
raised with record promptness and re-
sults. . The United War Work cam-
paign in colleges received its start
there in 1918 and was carried to a
successful conclusion throughout the
‘ country.

Official Report: Pennsylvania Depart-
ment of Health. George B——, Age
12, Died October 18, 191—. Diph-
When a railway disaster involving
the loss of life occurs, inquiries are in-
sti‘uted to tind oui—How it hap,ened;
Why it happened; Could it have been
Why did George die?
Diphtheria is caused by a germ
which rapidly multiplies and makes
po suns (toxins) which, if unopposed,
cause death, The diphtheria toxin is
weakened or destroyed by substances
called antitoxin produced in the blood.
If a diphtheria patien*’s blood can pro-
duce enough of this antitoxin he gets
well ; if not, he dies; or would dle ex-
cept that the horse makes antitoxin
for him,
When toxin from diphtheria germs
is injected into the horse, that animal
manufactures in its blood large quan-
tities of diphtheria antitoxin. The
fluid part of such blood forms the anti-
toxin of commerce and when injected
into the human system sufficiently ear-
ly and in adequate doses it will coun-
teract the effect of diphtheria toxin.
George was given antitoxin—then
why did he die?
On Monday evening at the supper
table George said his throat hurt when
he swallowed. The family spoon
handle examination was unsatisfac-
tory; both to him and his mother. He
was allowed to play in the back yard
with the boys. The next morning he
was dull, flushed and indifferent to
food; his throat was worse, but he
wept at the mention of the doctor.
That night the doctor was sent for.
“Bad looking throat,” said he as he
took a swab. for culture. “I'll give him
a thousand units of an‘itoxin at onc .
I'm not sure its diphtheria, but then
we must play safe.” “Not till you are
sue,” said the mother, and held to:
If George had had antitoxin that
night he would have recovered.
Next day George was worse, bu:
played listlessly with his dog which
wfierward played “fetch and carry”
with children in the street, in viola-
tion of the state law. The culture re-
port at noon was positive. He was
ziven 2000 units; the doctor said;
oU00 or 10,000 units might have save!
him even then. When heavier doses
were later given the toxin had already
done irreparable damage.
George died because he did not have
antitoxin early enough and in suflici-
ent dosage.
That week the fronts of sixteen
houses bore the yellow placard of
diphtheria ; followed by white crepe on
the doors of two of them.
Of the sixteen cases directly trace-
able to George B., two died. The rest
recovered, but two of them were left
with permanent deafness.
There were 17,717 cases of diphthe- .
ria in Pennsylvania in 1919. 1833 died.
Except for antitoxin more than 700)
would have died.
If all had been diagnosed early and
ziven full doses of antitoxin, few
would have died.
Dipththeria may be carried by the
finest spray of spit coughed into the
air of a room, or talked or laughed
into the face of another by one who
has the disease or carries the germs
in his mouth or throat.
It may be carried from hand to hand;
by means of towels, common drinking
cups or pencils; by a shared apple,
common spoon or piece of chewing
Every case of sore throat in children
should be seen by a doctor; sore throat
should be reason enough to keep the
child away from others and for having
everything he touches boiled or tho-
roughly washed with an antiseptic; and
for those who attend him to wash
their hands most carefully after they
have touched him. Full doses of anti-
toxin are given when in doubt. Croup
in young babies should suggest pos
sibility of diphtheria.
Quarantine should be begun when
diphtheria is suspected.
The premises labled when the diag-
nosis is reasonably assured.
These simple measures if universally
adopted, will drive diphtheria from
Pennsylvania and save hundreds of
children in the next twelve months.
After the sixth month practically all
infants can catca diphtheria. After
the tenth year many children are im-
mune. The Schick test which is made
by injecting a minute quantity of tox-
in into the skin, shows whether or not
a person can catch the disease. If he
can catch it, he can be permanently
protected by Toxin-antitoxin injec-
If a person has been exposed to
diphtheria and is given at least a
thousand units of antitoxin he will not
catch the disease, and is protected
against it for three weeks.
Antitoxin is safe. Those with asth-
ma, or who are made sick by being
near horses, or who are feeble should
first be given a small dose, before the
full quantity is injected.
—Every Farmer Should Treat Seed
Oats Now.—Pennsylvania produces
approximately 35,000,000 bushels of
oats annually. The average per cent.
of smut in the oat crop for the past
12 years has been 3.8. Rust and other
diseases reduce the crop 3 per cent.
more, making the loss from disease
approximately 2,553,000 bushels each
year. Of this amount 1,472,000 bush-
els is attributable to smut. This
means a large loss to the State from
a disease which can be prevented by a
method which for materials and labor
costs only about ten cents an acre.
Experiments have been conducted
which show that oats properly treated
with formaldehyde will yield more
than the control of the smut alone
would indicate. In fact, it is not un-
usual to secure an increase of from
eight to ten per cent by treating seed
oats when the untreated plots show
from three to five per cent smut. It
is evident that the treatment is of
considerable value over and above the
benefit gained by killing the smut.
Every farmer should treat his seed
oats this spring. The Farm Bureau

of plant pathology at The Pennsylva-
nia State College, says: “The new

pint of formaldehyde with one pint of
water and atomizing the grain with a
hand sprayer as it is being shoveled

is held close to the grain and the mist
well distributed. One quart of this
solution will treat 50 bushels of sseed

for four or five hours, no longer. They
are then ready to sow immediately,
thus eliminating the drying process

—What should the chicks be fed
after removing them from the incuba- | SUtaY z
| wild life conservation army and plant | §f
trymen agree that the best feed for
the first two or three days is the in-
fertile egg (tested out of incubator on
ground, shell and all, in a meat chop-
per and rubbed. together with three
times their bulk of rolled oats. A
good practice then is to remove the
chicks from the incubator to the
brooder at night. The next morning,
give them some fine chick grit in a
shallow pan. Supply them with luke
warm buttermilk, or sour skimmed
milk. About half an hour later, give
and rolled oats. Feed four or five
times a day, little but often, according
to poultry specialists at The Pennsyl-
vania State College.
On the third day the following mash
| can gradually be substituted for the
| egg and rolled oats; 10 pounds rolled
oats, 5b pounds bread crumbs, 1 pound
meat scrap, 1 pound bone meal, mixed
with buttermilk and fed in a shallow
pan. Starting with one feed the third
day, give them a scratch of 5 pounds
of fine cracked corn, 4 pounds pin
head oats, and 4 pounds cracked
wheat. By the second week give them
two feeds of scratch a day, and sub-
stitute the following dry mash for the
wet mash: 100 pounds bran, 100
pounds corn meal, 100 pounds mid-
dlings, 30 pounds meat scrap, 15
pounds bone meal. After the fourth
week feed the following scratch: 100
pounds cracked corn, 100 pounds
cracked wheat, 50 pounds hulled or
steel cut oats and 5 pounds millet
seed. Avoid chilling the chicks, for
that will cause no end of trouble.
Buttermilk permits one to raise a
larger number of chicks. Try it.
—Warning to Hog Owners.—The
swine industry in Pennsylvania is val-
ued at $25,000,000. The annual loss
from hog cholera alone is estimated
at $250,000.
The bureau of animal industry,
Pennsylvania Department of Agricul-
ture, issues the following regarding
this disease:
Hog cholera may be introduced into
a herd of healthy hogs by any of the
following means:
1. The purchasing of hogs and
pigs at public sales.
infected with hog cholera.
3. Failing to keep newly purchas-
. ed animals by themselves for at least
i two weeks before placing them with
' the main herd.
4, Visiting premises where cholera
! exists or allowing persons from in-
fected premises to visit your hog pens
and hog lots.
5. Breeding to neighbor’s boar,
which has been exposed to hog chol-
era infection.
If breeders, dealers and others who
have to do with the care and handling
of swine will comply fully with the
foregoing precautions, the losses from
hog cholera can be reduced to the
public’s support in carrying on the
campaign to eradicate hog cholera
from Pennsylvania.
— Results of a farm sheep experi-
ment reported by the United States
Department of Agriculture show
clearly the possibility of a probable
sheep-raising business upon eastern
age crops for summer pasturage.
In 1916 a 30-acre area did not pro-
duce forage enough to feed satisfac-
torily 44 Southdown ewes and 33
lambs. This field is now capable of
furnishing sufficient summer feed for
100 ewes with their lambs. 1
provement is due in part to the appli-
phates, but chiefly to the fact that le-
guminous crops were largely used and
all crops were fed upon the ground,
the unused residues being plowed in.
crops are seeded in rotation and the
sheep are allowed such frequent
to prevent troubles from parasites.

will not require much attention, but

The practice of the Game Commis-
sion during the past few years of
making extensive plantings of grape
vine cuttings throughout the game
preserves as well as adjacent cover
has not only produced promising
growths of new vines but has been
as an effort well worth emulating, and
the recent proclamation of one of the
active state-wide sportsmen’s organi-
zations setting aside a special day for
the purpose of planting wild grapes
has undoubtedly produced very excel-
lent results. Sportsmen, Boy Scouts,
and others interested responded no-
bly wherever weather conditions were
In the hope of bringing this matter
further to the attention of the general
public in such a manner that there
may be no excuse for neglecting this
phase of the wild life food question I
give below specific instructions that
will undoubtedly be of material as-
sistance to many interested persons
throughout the State. Take your
cuttings from thrifty frost or chicken
grape vines; leave to each piece three
bud joints. Make a clean oblique cut
about one-eighth to one-fourth inch
away from the buds at each end of the
cutting. After you have gathered
your cuttings immediately plant some
by digging®a hole or trench and plant
each piece at an angle of about forty-
five degrees, placing the two lower
bud joints under the ground and pack
the soil firmly with your foot. Care
must be taken to plant cuttings only
where the soil is reasonably deep, |
preferably of a sandy nature, with a.
plentiful supply of moisture through-
out the year. Cuttings may be secur-
ed and planted any time up to the
actual leafing out of the vines. Do
not hesitate to remove plenty of cut-'
tings from old vines, as this will also
| materially increase the grapes on such
: vines. If you can’t do better, secure
your neighbor’s trimmings from his
cultivated grapes and plant them at
suitable open places.
Join the active |
grapes to the limit. All you need is a |
heart, jack-knife and a pick. Do it:
now! !
Since the sportsmen of the State
were advised in a recent letter to the
public that the Game Commission is
preparing to distribute large quanti-
ties of kafir corn, millet and buck-
whea’ in the near future for planting
at the proper time to supply food for
game, either to be left stand where
grown or harvested and placed where
desirable, hundreds of requests have
been received for a supply of these
seeds. This interest is very gratify-
ing and at the suggestion of a num-
ber of those interested we have also
recently obtained a goodly quantity of
broom corn and sun-flower seed
which will be distributed at the same
time. By breaking down the broom-
corn when ripe so the tops will almost
reach the top of the average winter
i snows the birds can easily secure
same. The sun-flower is hardy and
will do well on almost any soil with
sufficient sunlight. The Game Com-
mission will plant a quantity of each
' of these seeds in the State Game Pre-
serves and in addition will plant in
the twenty-four sanctuaries already
created more than 60,000 cherry trees,
mulberry trees, black haws, barber-
ries, grapes, etc., to supply a more
varied food supply and shelter at
each of the preserves. The planting
of new preserves to be created this
summer cannot be undertaken at this
time owing to the scarcity of desira-
ble materials.

The faculty and Board of Trustees
of the Susquehanna University have

' campaign to be waged the week of

| dorsement of the campaign from the

I am interested to know that the
friends of Susquehanna University

i forts of their similar colleges to main-
tain themselves in these trying times.
