Bellefonte, Pa, June 18, 1920.
——O0h joy, oh boy! Another circus,
Thursday, July 8th.
Editor Harter, of tbe Gazette,
is associating with Judges and Sena-
tors this week in a trout-fishing
camp on Penns Creek.
——Mr. and Mrs. E. Earl Stailey
are receiving congratulations on the
birth of their first child, a son. Mrs.
Stailey is well known in Bellefonte,
as Miss Julia Curtin.
——“0h, East is East and West is
West, and never the twain will meet”
—Don’t you believe it. The Occident
and the Orient will both be at the
circus July 8th. See them.
—Judge Henry C. Quigley was
compelled to cancel his assignment to
hold court in Harrisburg this week
owing to the death of his father, Capt.
James A. Quigley, of Beech Creek.
——An ice cream and strawberry
festival will be given by the Women’s
Guild of the Episcopal church on the
lawn of the home of Col. W. Fred.
Reynolds on Friday evening, June
25th. All are welcome.
——The thimble bee of the ladies
of the Reformed church will be held
in the Chapel, this (Friday) afternoon
The hostess, Miss Caroline Harper,
cordially invites the ladies of the con-
gregation and their friends.
—— County Treasurer L. Frank
Mayes held his unseated land sales on
Monday, and being an auctioneer by
profession did his own selling. The
sales attracted the usual crowd of
buyers, most of whom were interested
in a financial way in the various
tracts offered for sale.
——The weather may be hot on the
streets these long evenings, but you
will find it fairly comfortable in the
Scenic, and nowhere in Bellefonte can
you get more amusement and better
entertainment for your money than at
this popular moving picture show. If
you're not a regular, you should be-
come one.
——Mr. and Mrs. Robert S. Walk-
er gave a dinner at the Lock Haven
country club, Monday evening, in com-
pliment to their house guest, Miss
Evans and the guests of Mrs. George
P. Bible. The entire party was enter-
tained Sunday at a luncheon given by
Mrs. John S. Walker and Miss Short-
lidge, at their home on Linn street.
——Shortly before noon on Wed-
nesday the waterback in the range of
the Pruner orphanage exploded scat-
tering live coals all over the kitchen.
Fearing a conflagration that might
destroy the orphanage an alarm of
fire was promptly sent in. The fire
department responded but the flames
were easily extinguished before they
did much damage.
——Willis Shuey got up at four
o’clock last Saturday morning and de-
cided to do a little trout fishing be-
fore it was time to go to work. Seek-
ing one of his favorite spots on Lo-
gan’s Branch he started in and in an
hour caught three, the largest of
which measured 24 inches in length
and weighed a fraction over five
pounnds. The other two measured 18
and fourteen inches respectively. Not
bad for an early morning catch.
As it looks now Bellefonters
will have to go away from home for
entertainment on the Fourth of July,
as no celebration of any kind has been
planned for this place. Of course the
Fourth will fall on Sunday, which
naturally means that Monday will be
the day universally observed. Mill-
heim will dedicate a soldier’s memor-
ial on that day, and Snow Shoe gen-
erally has something going on, while
Philipsburg is also arranging a cele-
Globobio Ronandio, who escap-
ed from the Rockview penitentiary
last November and was caught in
Scranton last week and returned to
Bellefonte, was taken before Judge
Quigley on Tuesday morning and giv-
en the regular sentence prescribed by
law. Ronandio’s original sentence
was for from five to seven years and
when he escaped he had only three
or four months to serve. He will
now be compelled to serve out his old
sentence and a new one equal to the
The children of Mr. and Mrs.
George C. Miller gave them a surprise
party on Wednesday evening in honor
of their fifty-fourth wedding anni:
versary, at their home in Bush’s Ad-
dition. There were present their six
children, twenty-one grandchildren
and five great grand-children, as well
as a number of other invited guests.
Delicious and appetizing refreshments
were served during the evening and
the occasion proved a most enjoyable
one for all, and especially for Mr. and
Mrs. Miller.
——Some farmers in Centre county
are complaining of considerable dam-
age being done their corn fields by the
crows and cut worms. Several in-
stances have been reported where far-
mers were compelled to replant fully
one-fourth of their field. But the
funniest story was told us the other
day on a new farmer who is tilling
the soil this year for the first. His
corn field is on the hillside and every
other row came up very sparcely.
Curious to know the reason therefore
he dug down and not only found the
corn sprouted but the young stalk
curled around in every which way, and
the only conclusion he could arrive
at is that he planted the corn too
deep and the young shoots could not
find their way to the surface. Wheth-
er that is the reason or not, he is re-
planting his corn.
Hundreds of Old Grads and Visitors
Present for the Week’s Exercises.
During the past three years annual
commencement exercises at The Penn-
sylvania State College have been very
much curtailed owing to the war and
conditions incident thereto, but this
year the doors of hospitality were
thrown wide open and the result was
one of the old-time commencements,
with hundreds of old grads back for
a part of the week at least while the
college was almost swamped with oth-
er visitors from all parts of the State.
While preliminary events to the
commencement proper were held as
early as Friday evening and Saturday
the first official part of the general
program was the baccalaureate ser-
mon to the graduating class on Sun-
day morning, by Rev. Dr. C. E. Jef-
ferson, of the Broadway Tabernacle,
New York. On Sunday afternoon
special memorial serices were held in
the auditorium for Dean George Gil-
bert Pond, for thirty-two years a
member of the college faculty, and
whose recent death at New Haven,
Conn., was so sudden and unexpected.
Dr. Edwin Erle Sparks, president of
the College, presided and touching
tributes were paid to the memory of
Dr. Pond by Judge H. Walton Mitch-
ell, on behalf of the Board of Trus-
tees, of which he is president; Prof.
F. L. Pattee, on behalf of the college
faculty; Dr. William H. Walker, prac-
tical head of the Massachusetts Insti-
tute of Technology and who was one
of Dr. Pond’s first chemistry students,
spoke for the chemistry students gen-
erally; J. F. Shields, ’92, of Philadel-
phia, spoke in behalf of the alumni,
and Mr. Snyder represented the stu-
dent body. Announcement was made
during the week that the movement
started less than a year ago by Dr.
Pond for the removal from Northum-
berland to State College of the old
Joseph Priestley mansion be carried
out just as he had planned and that
the group of buildings of which it will
be a part be named the “George Gil-
bert Pond laboratories.”
Announcement was made on Sun-
day that for the first time in the his-
tory of the College a girl had won the
John W. White medal in the person
of Miss Esther Mae Rauck, of Joan-
na, Berks county, who has won sever-
al scholarships and medals in the past
four years. It was also announced
that Calvin Wilson Moore, of State
College, had won the John W. White
fellowship, valued at $400, to be used
in post graduate work, but had very
generously resigned the prize in favor
of George Stewart Wykoff, also of
State College, who will enter Prince-
ton Seminary next fall to prepare for
the ministry.
Class day exercises were held on
Monday morning and a little incident
of that gathering was the presenta-
tion to Dr. and Mrs. Sparks by the
graduating class of a token of appre-
ciation engraved on parchment and
enclosed in a morocco leather case.
Dr. Sparks was also presented with a
handsome gold watch, a gift of the
entire student body. Official presen-
tation was also made of the $100,000
life insurance endowment fund pro-
vided as a memorial by the 1920 ciass,
and which was officially accepted by
Judge Mitchell on behalf of the Board
of Trustees.
Tuesday was alumni day, and not-
withstanding the rain a large number
of old graduates joined the parade on
the campus and made merry with a
vim equal to their old college days.
At the annual meeting of the alumni
association Judge Mitchell, as presi-
dent of the Board of Trustees, an-
nounced that with this commencement
the service of Dr. Sparks as official
head of the College would cease. He
spoke briefly of the many big things
he had accomplished during his twelve
years as head of the institution and
expressed regret that his health made
it imperative for him to give up the
work. He further stated that up to
the presenc time nobody as yet has
been actually approached in regard
to becoming Dr. Sparks’ successor,
but that the members of the Board of
Trustees have several parties in view
and it is just possible that somebody
will be invited soon to become the
head of the institution. But he fur-
ther qualified his statement by saying
that the mere fact of the College be-
ing without an official head would not
influence the Board in acting with un-
due haste or without very thoroughly
considering the question of a succes-
sor to Dr. Sparks. Announcement
was also made to the association that
Charles W. Stoddart, professor or ag-
ricultural chemistry, had been pro-
moted to Dean of Liberal Arts and
acting Dean of the School of Natural
Science, a position held by the late
Dr. G. G. Pond for twenty-four years.
Another speaker before the alumni
association was Dr. Thomas E. Fine-
gan, State Superintendent of Public
Instruction. This was the doctor's
first visit to State College and he
freely confessed that he was so aston-
ished at the magnitude of the Centre
county institution, its location and
surroundings that it would be some
time before he would be able to ex-
press himself coherently in regard to
it. He then spoke of his dream of one
big university for the great State of
Pennsylvania, a statement of which
has appeared in the public press from
time to time, but stated that he want-
ed to go on record there and then with
the assertion that no dream of his, no
movement that he might be able to
precipitate would contemplate any in-
terference with or retroaction of the
great work being done at State Col-
lege now. And further than that, he
would do everything within his power
to broaden and enlarge its sphere of
usefulness. Intrepreting his remarks
he stated that if agriculture is to be
; brought to the high plane of business ,
efficiency as are other industries it
must be through the help of our agri-
cultural colleges. And the only way
to dignify the course in agriculture is
to make it a part of the curriculum of
our biggest universities, so that the
boy who wants to study farming will
stand on the same plane as the boy
who wants to study the arts, the sci-
ences, or any of the greatest studies
in the world. Dr. Finegan also stated
that State College was not only the
State College in name but also in fact
and logically should be the one state
university, and so far as he would be
able to influence legislation not one
penny of appropriation would go to
any other institution until State Col-
lege was liberally taken care of.
Naturally the members of the alum- |
ni association, who always have the
interest of the College very close to
their hearts, were very much pleased
with Dr. Finegan’s pronounced assur-
ance of his interest and future co-op-
eration in the welfare of the College. |

er were held in the auditorium on

Tax collector Levi A Miller, of
Spring township, had what he terms
a peculiar surprise a few days ‘ago.
In order to have something on hand
“for medical purposes only” he decid-
ed it would be the part of wisdom to
make a little dandelion wine. When
the wine was ready for bottling he
discovered that he was short of bottles.
To help him out of his dilemma, Mrs.
Miller called attention to the fact that
there was a whole case of soft drink
bottles in the cellar that could be
Therefore the genial tax collector
hied himself forthwith to the cellar
and in due time uncovered -the case
of supposedly empty bottles, but was
very much surprised, upon examina-
tion, ‘to find them all full. In total
ignorance of what the bottles contain-
ed he opened one and sampled it, and
was rather pleased to find the con-
tents to be a very good quality of
sweet cider. Then the fact dawned
upon him that ten years ago, when
cider was plenty and much cheaper
than it has been the past few years,
he had made several barrels of it
and had bottled a portion of it for
use during the winter. The case in
question had evidently been lost sight
of and buried beneath some other
stuff in the cellar had lain there all :
this time.
The finding of the cider places Mr.
Miller in a rather peculiar position.
He realizes that at the age of ten
years the cider may have become more
or less intoxicating. He realizes the
fact that prohibition advocates tell
us that strong drink has driven young
men from lines of sobriety, industry
and frugality to a career of drunken-
ness, indolence and wastefulness. That
strong drink is responsible, directly
or indirectly for three-fourths of all
crime committed, and four-fifths of
all murders perpetrated in the land.
And now comes the dilemma. Mr, Mil-
ler does not want to be a party to
anything that would connect him with
such transgressions of the law, and
he would like to know what to do
with the other twenty-three bottles
of cider, which he admits tastes all
And that is the reason we say “send
it to ye editor.” He will see that no
young man or woman gets the least
bit of it.
display in the Potter-Hoy hardware
store last Thursday morning, Mrs.
George Martz, of Lemont, inadvert-
ently stepped forward without notic- |
ing where she was going and fell |
down the steps leading to the base-
ment. In addition to nervous shock
and bruises she sustained a fracture
of her left arm. A physician was
promptly summoned who reduced the
fracture and Mr. Potter conveyed her
to her home in his car. Mrs. Martz is
seventy-four years old and naturally
will mind the injury more than a
younger person. To avoid another
like accident a gate has been placed
at the head of the stairway.

Organization Will be Known as Nick-
el Fabricating Company.
{ ——
| The “Watchman” last week an-
; nounced that the Business Men’s Asso-
, ciation of Centre county had decided
| to undertake the sale of $50,000 worth
{of bonds for the establishment of a
{ new industry in Bellefonte, and offi-
{cial announcement was made this
week that the new corporation will be
known as the Nickel Fabricating com-
pany. Its purpose is to manufacture
I articles of pure nickel and nickel-al-
loys, and will utilize for its raw ma-
terials the new production in mallea-
i ble nickel and nickel-alloys developed
by Dr. C. T. Hennig, of Bellefonte.
. There has long been a well-estab-
| lished demand for products made of
nickel, and of nickel-alloys, owing to
their resistance to acids, alkalies and
high temperatures. Previous to the de-
velopment of Dr. Hennig’s processes
| of refining these materials it has been
| most difficult to produce them in a
{ form suitable for fabricating purpos-
es. Practically all of this type of
| work in the United States was being
, done by Mr. Harry C. Taylor and Mr.
George H. Tay, with materials sup-
plied them by the Supplee-Biddle
Hardware company, of Philadelphia,
long known as the original develop-
ers of the market of non-corrosive al-
loys. The demands of this market
i have become so great that it has be-
| come necessary to supplant the old ar-
| rangement with an organization doing
i this sort of work exclusively, and it
! was for this reason that the Nickel
Fabricating company is being organ-
The new corporation will use for its
materials supply the products of the
Nickel-Alloys company, of Hyde, Pa.,
(Dr. Henning’s metal producing or-
ganization,) and will manufacture
among other things such articles as
tanks, washing machines, dairy equip-
ment, cooking utensils, chemical
equipment, etc. These products will
be marketed through the Supplee-Bid-
dle company. It is very evident that
with the backing of a large, success-
ful metal-producing company, and
with a sales organization internation-
. ally known as the original distributor
"of this type of product, the Nickel
Fabricating company will be a success
from the start. Indeed it is known
| that there are several large manufac-
| turing contracts already waiting for
' the plant to commence operations.
It is the intention at present to lo-
cate in the old plant of the Titan
Metal company, on the McCoy proper-
ty, near Milesburg, and it is expected
that when fully organized about one
hundred and fifty to two hundred
hgncia mechanics will be employ-
Bellefonte is to be congratulated
upon the acquisition of such an indus-
try, which will bring to this locality
many families of the very best sort,
after the available home labor has
been taken care of. It is known that
several of our neighboring cities have
been offering large bonuses to the
plant as an inducement to locate with
one'or the other of them. It is due
entirely to the efforts of Dr. Hennig
that the organizers of the plant have
decided to locate here, for although
he will not be an active officer in the
new company, he felt that he would
be able better to devote more of his
time to it in an advisory manner in
his own home town than he could
were it located elsewhere. Then, too,
the fact that the new concrete road
‘between Clearfield and Bellefonte will
soon be ready, makes it possible to
ship raw materials from Dr. Hennig’s
plant to the new plant here with
greater ease than could be done in
many other localities desirous of hav-
ing the plant.
And the final reason for locating
here is one that we all know—that
Bellefonte has better water, better
. streets, and a better civic spirit than
has any other which has been consid-
ered. We welcome the Nickel Fabri-
j cating company to Bellefonte, and
wish it a long and prosperous exist-
Bellefonte’s Population Declining.
Announcement was made last week
that the 1920 census showed the pop-
{ ulation of Bellefonte to be 8996, and
i quite naturally many Bellefonters rise
| to question the correctness of the fig-
fures. In 1900 the population of the
(town was 4216, and in 1910 4145.
From these figures it will be seen
that in ten years we have gone back
149 and in twenty years 220, assuming
that the figures for 1920 are correct.
And whether correct or not, they will
have to stand as the official census of
the town. Interest will now centre
on the population of Centre county
which in 1900 was 42,894, and in 1910
[ 43,425.
