—The Titan Metal company has
leased the rooms in Temple Court for-
merly occupied by Orvis & Zerby and
will move their offices there from the
Eagle block. The question of heat
during the winter is the main ques-
tion at stake in their moving.

James I. McClure was success-
ful in compelling the Bell Telephone
company of Pennsylvania to remove
the pole at the corner of his residence
on Spring and Logan streets, but in
doing so they erected two poles just
inside the curb along his property, so
that instead of one pole there are now
two, but they are not on his property.
——The eminent gentlemen who
look after the affairs of the village of
Pine Grove Mills are up in the air be-
cause some one stole their speed limit
signs. That’s nothing. In Bellefonte
they throw the “no parking” signs in-
to Spring creek, knock down our si-
lent policemen and last Saturday an
out of town autoist almost ran down
a member of the police force, notwith-
standing the protection of a traffic
ordinance about a foot long. :
A number of counties in® the
State failing to take advantage of the
law appropriating money for the im-
provement of township roads left a
fund of $221.651.17 in the state road
fund which has been apportioned
among twenty-one counties making
the best showing in the matter of up-
keep of township roads, and Centre
county is included in the number with
an appropriation of $7020.30 in addi-
tion to the regular apportionment an-
nounced some time ago.
State College has been rather
fortunate in the success the contractar
who has the street paving job there
has met with in prosecuting his work.
With a mile of brick paving to do he
will be able to get his work completed
in less time than it has taken to lay
four blocks in this place. All of the
concrete base and curbing is complet-
ed up there and nothing remains to be
done but the laying of brick. That
goes very fast and a month of fair
weather will find State College enjoy-
ing the great improvement that the
new work will effect.
H. S. Ray will retire as land-
lord of the Brockerhoff house on Oc-
tober first and probably move into the
home of Mrs. Ray’ father, Mr. Mon-
roe Armer, on Linn street. Mr. Ray
has been in charge at the Brockerhoff
house the past seventeen years, com-
ing here from the Altamont, Altoona.
Just what he will engage in after his
retirement has not yet been definitely
decided. Up to the present time no
one has been secured as Mr. Ray’s
successor, though efforts are being
made upon the part of the owners of
the hotel to secure some one to take
charge at once, so that the house will
not be closed to patrons.
___ Published in the “Watchman,”
issue of September 3rd, was an iter
relative to Mr. Nathan Ichkowitz’s
truck being driven through the barri-
cade and up on the green concrete of
the new state road at Snow Shoe In-
tersection, béing put down by the Vi-
pond Construction company, of Al-
toona. The item was furnished the
“Watchman” by the State, Highway
Department and carried the inference
that Mr. Ichkowitz personally was
driving the truck. This was not the
case, as the truck was driven by his
hired man, Hogan Parks. Naturally
Mr. Ichkowitz was somewhat wrought
up over the fact that the public might
consider him at fault and this expla-
nation is made at the request of the
Highway Department.

Both He and His Mechanician Burned
to Death in Junker Machine.
Walter Stevens, the dean of pilots
in the aerial mail service, and Rus-
sell Thomas, his mechanician, were
burned to death when the Junker all-
metal plane they were driving from
Cleveland to Chicago caught fire
about 2:30 o’clock on Tuesday after-
noon, while sailing along about five
hundred feet in the air near Pember-
ville, Ohio. Pilot Stevens left Cleve-
land at 12:20 p. m. with four hundred
pounds of mail for Chicago, having
taken the place of William Riddles-
barger, the regular pilot, who met
with an accident just as he was tak-
ing off the field, damaging his plane
and suffering slight injuries. Stevens
was then called upon to take the mail
through and his tragic death was the
Following so close upon the burn-
ing to death of pilot Max Miller the
deplorable fate of pilot Stevens is an
even greater shock to the people of
Bellefonte for two reasons, because
he was so well known here and also
because the fatality was exactly simi-
lar to that which befell pilot Miller
and with the same kind of plane.
Pilot Stevens drove the Junker
plane from New York to Bellefonte
last Saturday with a load of mail and
when he reached here it was discover-
ed that his radiator was leaking, so
the mail was transferred to another
ship and he was held here until his
machine could be repaired. He stayed
here until Tuesday afternoon and took
occasion to tell his friends that that
was his last trip, as he was going *o
leave the service. When he left here
on Monday afternoon for Cleveland
he was accompanied by Charles E.
Gates, stock clerk at the aviation field,
who went to Cleveland to see about
material for completing the steel
hangar on the Bellefonte field. The lat-
ter returned home by train on Wed-
nesday and stated that on the trip to
Cleveland the machine was all right
with the exception that the motor
missed fire once or twice, but pilot
Stevens didn’t consider that anything
alarming. They arrived at the Cleve-
land field at six o’clock in the even-
ing and went into the city together.
Tuesday morning they went out to the
field and Mr. Gates saw pilot Stevens
take off for Chicago, waving good-bye
to him. He left the field a half hour
later and went into the city, and al-
though he did not leave Cleveland un-
til after eleven o'clock Tuesday night
he failed to hear of Stevens’ death,
and the first knowledge he had of it
was when he got a paper in Pitls-
burgh Wednesday morning.
Stevens was in the neighborhood of
forty vears of age and a native of
Michigan. He had been flying for two
years or longer and although he had
been compelled to make forced land-
ingssat «times he ‘had never been in-
jured and had one of the best rec-
ords of any flyer in the service.
Thoughtlessly Frightened.
On Sunday moning Jacob Gross re-
ceived a telephone call from Lock Ha-
ven and the person at the other end of
the wire asked for particulars of the
death of ‘his son Philip, who, the
speaker averred, had been killed by
the fall of an airplane while en route
to the Pacific coast. Both Mr. and
Mrs. Gross almost collapsed under the
shock of the information conveyed, as
they had not heard of any such acci-
dent. Philip has been working at an
aviation field in Cleveland and Mr.
Gross promptly called the company by
which he is employed, on the tele-
phone and asked for information as to
the truth or falsity of the report. The
man who answered the telephone told
Mr. Gross to hold the wire a minute
and he called up Philip’s lodging
house and promptly got him on the
phone and he was able himself to de-
ny the fact that he had been killed.
The only explanation he was able to
give for the story was that not long
ago he did take a trip in an airplane
to Oklahoma and that last week the
same machine came down while on a
flight to the Pacific coast and the pi-
lot was killed, but Philip was not a
passenger on that trip. Of course it
was joyful news to the Gross family
to know the young. man was safe in
Cleveland, but they were quite badly
frightened until they had definite
word of his whereabouts.
Secretary of War Baker Visited
State College.
Secretary of War Newton D. Baker
visited State College on Wednesday
as the big attraction for the opening
of the college year. He came to the
College from Harrisburg as a motor
guest of Vance C. McCormick and on
the trip over the Seven Mountains he
rather significantly inquired as to
the character of the rustic place ne
was being taken to. Of course, when
he got out of the mountains and info
broad and fertile Pennsvalley he be-
gan to open his eyes, and when he was
finally landed at the College he stood
aghast with amazement at the scope
of the institution. Of course his ap-
proach to the College was not unher-
alded as he was met some distance
outside of the town by the cadet band
and battalion and escorted right up to
the doors of Old Main.
Secretary Baker delivered his ad-
dress from the terrace of old Main
to the several thousand students
massed on the front campus.
Of course it had mostly to do with
military training and the possibilities
it opens up for the energetic young
man. Secretary Baker and Mr. Mec-
Cormick were entertained at lunch-
eon by Dr. and Mrs. E. E. Sparks.

Policeman Jack Robinson re-
signed from the force last week be-
cause he considered he had a just
grievance against the borough council
and substitute George Glenn was on
duty until late Saturday night. Sat-
urday evening the burgess and Fire
and Police committee held a meeting
and decided to appoint Thomas How-
ley to the vacancy caused by the res-
ignation of Mr. Robinson, subject ‘o
the approval of council. Mr. Howley
has been on duty this week.
G. Oscar Gray has appointed Mrs.
Frank M. Fisher, of Centre Hall, as
chairman of the woman’s committee
of the Democratic party for Centre
county and she has accepted. A full
committee, consisting of one woman
in each voting district in the county,
will be appointed and it will be their
special work to get out the women
voters. Mr. Gray was very fortunate
in securing Mrs. Fisher as chairman,
as her acquaintance extends over ali
of the south side and she has the ex-
ecutive ability to do the work as-
signed to her.
— The Granger’s did not have =
very good wind up for their picnic at
Centre Hall last week, as it rained all
Thursday afternoon and the result
was the grounds became a regular
quagmire and the only man who made
money was W. C. Krader with his
tractor pulling out automobiles that
got stuck in the mud at the rate of
one dollar per. In fact business was
so good in this respect that he was
kept hard at it until almost midnight.
Of course the biggest crowd of the
week was there on Thursday and the
most of them got pretty well soaked
before they got home, but the soaking
was all on the outside.

Contractor Edward Hepburn
began work on Tuesday morning on
his contract to remove the tall steeple
from the Methodist Episcopal church.
For a year or more the steeple has
been condemned as unsafe and the of-
ficial board of the church decided that
the most sensible thing to do was to
take the steeple down to the brick and
then put a suitable top finish on the
brick portion of the steeple. The
steeple will be removed in sections
from the top downwards and it will
probably take ten days or two weeks
to complete the job. The present
church was completed in 1876 and in
the forty-four years that the steepie
has stood there the wood has disinte-
grated to such an extent that there
would be constant danger of its being
blown over by hard winds, were it al-
lowed to stand.

Col. Spangler Enters State College.
Two weeks ago the “Watchman”
told of Rev. H. F. Babcock giving up
his pastorate at Stormstown to ma-
triculate as a student in special work
at State Colege, and now comes the
announcement that our own Col. J. L.
Spangler, of Bellefonte, has also ma-
triculated as a student in economics.
There is an old adage that it is never
too late to learn and the Colonel evi-
dently must have faith in the saying
and will prove it out to his own satis-
“Jim's Girl.”
Now that it is an assured fact that
“Jim’s Girl” is coming to the Garman
theatre on Thursday, September 23rd,
everybody is asking, “What sort of a
girl is she? Is she blond or brunette?
Is she tall or petite? Is she of the
clinging ivy sort, or does she vote?”
To all of these and innumerable other
queries the man in the box office
smiles blandly and winks his left eye.
When asked why he manipulated the
left optic, he said because it was
right. - All of which may or may not
be pertinent as to what an accurate
description of “Jim’s Girl” is like, nut
it sure shows healthy interest in th2
forthcoming production, and that thie
interest will be thoroughly justified
when the little lady finally arrives
may be readily taken for granted.

Booze Sensation in Philipsburg.
The people of Philipsburg had a
booze sensation last week which may
lead to further developments if all the
accusations and recriminations that
have been made are correct. It ap-
pears that on Saturday night, August
5th, a new policeman by the name of
P. A. Hilt was on duty in Philipsburg
and along in the early hours of Sun-
day morning he captured a motor
truck loaded with three barrels and
two cases of whiskey. The truck was
in charge of Harry Frank, of Wilkes-
Barre, the same man the state cops of
Bellefonte nabbed near Centre Hill
two months ago and brought to Belle-
fonte. The cargo of whiskey was con-
fiscated but Mr. Frank was not de-
Rumor has it that some persons n
Philipsburg had granted Frank immu-
nity on previous trips through there
for which they received a case or more
of the wet goods as a present. The
present so whetted their appetites, it
is said, that on this trip they demand-
ed a barrel of it and that being too
much “grease” for Frank to part with,
his movements were tipped off and

By Compromise on Telephone Rates |
Within Certain Radius. |
In a communication from James A. |
Gleason Esq., of DuBois, one of the!
five attorneys in the state-wide fight :
against the increase of telephone
rates, the “Watchman” has been in- |
formed that an agreement has been
reached upon a compromised reduc-
tion in flat rates and toll area, which
is considered a substantial victory for
the users of the Bell telephone.
According to the agreement free
toll is to be restored between Belle-
fonte and State College, Boalsburg,
and Centre Hall. Owing to the large
amount of detail work in connection
with Spring Mills and the Millheim
exchange no definite announcement
has been made regarding the agree-
ment on these places.
The agreement, however, carries an
increase in flat rates for business
places of six dollars a year on indi-
vidual and two-party lines. Of course
the agreement is not yet effective, as
it will have to be ratified by the Pub-
lic Service Commission and due notice
given the public. The flat rates
agreed upon are as follows:
Individual lines ......... £54.00 per annum
2.Party line ............. 48.00 per annum
4-Party Hne '............ 42.00 per annum
Extension Station ....... 12.00 per annum
Individual line ........... $36.00 per annum
2.-Party line ..........c0. 30.00 per annum
4-Party line ............. 24.00 per annum
Extension Station ....... 6.00 per annum
Multi-Party line (over four and
hardly exceeding fifteen on same
Business ...$36.00 per annum plus mileage
residence .. 24.00 per annum plus mileage
The multi-party line rate will ap-
ply with a zone-two miles air line ra-
dius beyond the base rate area; be-
at $3 per annum for each two miles
or fraction air line.
State Centre Company Sells Supply
The State-Centre Electric company
has disposed of its electric supply
stores in Bellefonte and State College
to William Wrigley, son of John
Wrigley, of Clearfield, the latter tak-
ing charge last Saturday morning.
For the present the Bellefonte store
will be continued in the State-Centre
building and in order to afford neces-
sary room for the new store and also
give the State-Centre ample room for
the storage of their material for new
work, ete., the company will build an
addition to the rear of its present
building. Mr. Wrigley, however, will
endeavor to secure another location
for the store and as soon as he can do
so will move it and the State-Centre
will then occupy the entire building
as an office and storage room,
Mr. Wrigley already owns supply
stores in Clearfield and Philipsburg
the purchase of the store here and
the one at State College will give him
a chain of four stores which will ena-
ble him to purchase all kinds of sup-
plies in large enough quantities to get
the benefit of lowest prices. He will
also be able to carry a more complete
stock than the State-Centre was able
to do. The purchase of the Bellefonte
store carried with it the right to occu-
py the rooms over the store, and Mr.
and Mrs. Walter McCullough will be
compelled to vacate the rooms, as
they will be occupied by the new man-
ager of the store, Ward Fisher and

Academy is due to the fact that twenty-
five years ago his father was a traveling
salesman for Pillsbury flour and spent a
good part of his time in Bellefonte and his
