Held in Lutheran Church Here This
: Week.
The sixty-seventh annual sessions
of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of
Central Pennsylvania was held in the
Bellefonte Lutheran church this week.
About seventy-five ministers and lay
delegates were in attendance. The of-
ficers of the Synod were president,
Dr. T. C. Houtz, of Selinsgrove; sec-
retary, Rev. W. M. Rearick, of Mifflin-
burg; treasurer, Mr. W. T. Horton, of
Selinsgrove, and statistician, Rev. C.
T. Aikens, of Selinsgrove.
Synod opened on Monday evening
with the Synodical sermon by the
president, Dr. Houtz. This was fol-
lowed by preparatory service and the
holy communion.
On Tuesday morning the president
submitted his annual report in which
he stated that a number of churches
within the confines of the Synod are
vacant, forsaken by pastors who have
given up the ministry to enter more
lucrative fields of labor. While the
president naturally deplored the fact
that men should forsake the ministry
for secular work, yet he laid all the
blame to the high cost of living and
the very nominal salaries paid to min-
isters in general. :
Following the president and secre-
tary’s report Rev. George Drach, of
Baltimore, was introduced. He is sec-
retary of the foreign mission board of
the Lutheran church and gave a brief !
outline of the work now being carried .
on in foreign fields. The church now
has fields in India, Japan, Liberia and
South America. Twenty-five mission- ,
aries will be sent out this year and
ty next year.
The next speaker introduced was
Dr. Chantry Hoffman, of Philadel-
phia, secretary of the board of home
missions, who stated that work was
now in progress on the opening up of :
England '
new mission fields in New
"and Canada.
Now that the evenings have
Dr. Charles S. Bauslin, college sec-
retary of the board of education, stat-
ed that it is up to the colleges to com-

erly love. America

. men for the work.

later turned over to the federal au-
thorities and stored in the cellar of
the postoffice. The onions, however,
failed to improve under storage con-
ditions and last Friday they were
hauled out on a dump. So far there
has been no intimation of the whiskey
getting so strong that it will have to
be treated likewise.
Since last spring the State Col-
lege chapter of the Red Cross has as-
sisted a total of forty-one former
service men in securing compensation
or training or both. Dr. J. Ben Hill,
of the botany department at the Col-
lege, is in charge of this feature eof
Red Cross work, and has met with un-
usual success. This is a fact the pub-
lic should bear in mind when the an-
nual roll call is made for members of
the State College chapter, which will
be within the next few weeks.
— Mrs. George Williams stumbled
over a misplaced chair in her apart-
ments in the Hibler house, on Alleghe-
ny street, last Friday afternoon and
suffered a complete fracture of the hip
bone. In fact her injury is so severe
that she was unable to help herse'f
after falling, and lay on the floor two
hours, or from two until four o'clock,
before she received assistance. As
soon as the seriousness of her condi-
tion was ascertained she was taken to
the Bellefonte hospital where every
care possible is being given her.
But it was one more re- | | 2k RE oH

evening’s program was the burning of
the $800 mortgage on the parsonage,
thus completely wiping out all the
debt of the church property. This
fact is especially pleasing to the con-
gregation at this time because they.
only recently completed repairs to the
church at an expense of $1500, and .
not a cent remains unpaid. The mort-
gage in question was burned in full
view of the Synod and congregation by
Dr. Charlies T. Aikens and Dr. Thom-
as GC. Houtz, and when the last of the
official document had been turned into
ashes Miss Ruth Coxey and Mrs. Leif
Olsen sang the duet, “Whispering
The principal speaker at Tuesday
evening’s session was Judge Albert
W. Johnson, of Lewisburg, who in an
address to the Brotherhood, discussed
the coming of a great religious
movement. He declared that all
signs indicated the march of progress
in all things spiritual. People are not
only thinking big things but doing
them. This was shown in the outcome
‘of the world war and again in the
adoption of the Eighteenth and Nine-
teenth amendments. He pointed out
_ the necessity of churches uniting in:
some plan of business management
. that will result in better financing, so
that ministers shall receive pay com-
" mensurate with their labors, and good,
strong men now in the ministry be
given the right kind of inducements
. to remain, and that men who feel like
' taking up the work will not be deter-
red because of the lack of support.
Following the Judge's very inter-
esting address the local Brotherhood
‘entertained the visiting delegates at a
social in the basement of the church,
the Odd Fellows band furnishing mu-
sic for the occasion.
Practically all of Wednesday’s ses-
dations of the united Lutheran church
session Rev. A. R. Longanecker deliv-
ered a sermon on the enlarged work
of the United Lutheran church.
Practically all the work at yester-
| day’s business sessions was routine
matter and at the closing session in
the evening Rev. J. C. Reighard, of
Marysville, preached the ordination
sermon and W. E. Swoope, of Altoo-
; na, and Park W. Huntington, of Mil-

mountain their car skidded, the rear

‘at a point where there is a deep ra-
vine. Fortunately the car lodged
against a small tree before the front
wheels left the roadway and none of
the men were hurt. But they had no
‘means of getting the car back onto
the road so were compelled to leave it
and walk to Bellefonte, a distance cf
seven miles. They went out after the
car on Tuesday and it was then that
they discovered i hat a narrow escape
they had, as the ravine at that point
is fifty feet deep and only the little
tree against which their car lodged
kept them from going to the bottom.

point of the strength of the Bucknell
Varsity team as shown against the
U. of P. last Saturday the reserves
should prove a foe worthy of the
Academy eleven. But they will have
to play some to hold their own with
the boys from the Hill, who last Sat-
urday defeated the strong Wyoming
Academy eleven at Kingston by the
score of 7 to 0. In fact the Bellefonte
boys outplayed the Kingstonians at
every point and the score should real-
ly have been 21 to 0. Therefore to-
morrow morning’s game should be a
“corker” and everybody who ean
should go out and see it.

Dartmouth vs. State, at State Col-
lege Tomorrow.
The biggest crowd that ever wit-
nessed a football game at State Coi-
lege is expected there tomorrow to see |
the contest between Hugo Bezdek’s
gridiron warriors and the wonderful
Dartmouth team. During the past
two seasons State has lost to Dart-
| mouth by the narrowest of margins,
| both garnes being played on the Big
' Green’s home grounds. This year the
| game will be played on Beaver field
“at State College and State will have
| the advantage of her home grounds.
' This will also be the first time that a
really big team has ever been seen in
{ action on the State gridiron.
The football management is making
arrangements for a record-breaking
crowd. In addition to the game it will
| be alumni day and hundreds of the old
| grads are expected back, so that a trip
| to the College tomorrow will be a
! worthwhile matter.
Close of Y. W. C. A. Club Membership
One hundred and four members in
the new Y. W. C. A. club of Bellefonte
was the result of a contest campaign
waged the past month between two
teams of young women, as announced
at the monthly meeting of the club
held at the home of Mrs. Robert Mills
Beach on Tuesday evening. The
teams were known as the “whites”
and the “greens,” Miss Beatrice Yer-
ger being captain of the whites and
Miss Elizabeth Eckenroth of the
greens. The latter won the contest by
the whites. Being the losers in the
contest the whites will entertain the
greens at the next monthly meeting of
the club to be held at the home of
Mrs. Beach on November 2nd. Next
| Monday evening, weather permitting,
the club will take a one hour’s hike,
starting from the High school
building at 5:30 o'clock. As many
members as can possibly go are urged
to join in this hike.

“Report of Last Week's W. C. T. U.
and :
The thirty-fifth annual convention
of the Centre county W. C. T. U. held
at Boalsburg last Wednesday and
{ Thursday was well attended despite
the inclement weather and other ad-
verse circumstances. The principal
speakers were Mrs. Maude B. Perkins,
of Syracuse, N. Y., national secretary
of the young peoples branches of the
organization, and Dr. Homer W. Tope,
of Philadelphia, secretary of the Anti-
Saloon League. Both people sounded
a warning to the public to exercise
great care in the election of men who
will support the Eighteenth amend-
ment and stand against any modifica-
tion of the Volstead act. Mrs. Per-
kins also urged the women to vote for
Mrs. Leah Cobb Marion, of Empor-
ium, candidate for United States Sen-
ator on the Prohibition ticket, in pref-
erence to either Senator Penrose or
Major Farrell, both of whom she char-
acterized as “wet.” She also urged
the women to organize classes in citi-
zenship and recommended the book
“Lessons in Citizenship,” which are
now being published weekly in the col-
umns of the “Watchman.”
The report of the president, Miss
Rebecca Naomi Rhoads, showed that
much good work had been done dur-
ing the year. During the summer the
various Unions in the county sent
flowers to the Bellefonte hospital, so-
{ cials were held and plays given, prize
essay contests held and money con-
tributed to the Near East relief. The
W. C. T. U. room in the Bellefonte
hospital has been maintained, a
bronze tablet placed in Petrikin hall
in memory of Mrs. John P. Harris, for
many years the county president, and
various other good works. Miss
Rhoads also gave an account of her
work as national W. C. T. U. superin-
tendent of social welfare, in which
she characterized the conditions on
the Mexican border so far as loneli-
ness and general dreariness are con-
cerned, as little better than the condi-
tions were in France.
The matter of increasing the mem-
bership dues was discussed and it was
voted to increase the yearly dues to
one dollar a member, the annual
yearly dues social to be held in Octo-
ber. A very gratifying increase in
membership was reported, the Boals-
burg Union having tripled its roll.
Three new Unions were organized by
Mrs. Perkins, a W. C. T. U. and young
people’s branch at Pleasant Gap and
a young people’s branch at Blanchard.
The treasurer’s report showed the
largest balance on hand in years.
Memorial services were held for
those who died during the year, spe-.
cial tribute being paid to Mrs. Rebec-
ca B. Chambers, who passed away
April 14th, 1920, after many years of
faithful service in the cause. She was
state president ten years, later honor-
ary president, and acting president
for Centre county during Miss
a Y. M. C. A. secretary with the A. E.
F. in France. :
he election of officers on Thursday
afternoon resulted as follows: Pres-
ident, Miss Rebecca Naomi Rhoads,
Bellefonte; vice president, Mrs. Am-
brose M. Schmidt, Bellefonte; record-
ing secretary, Mrs. Nannie F. Wil-
liams, Fleming; treasurer, Mrs.
Frank Knowles, State College.
A committee was appointed to in-
terview the candidates for the Legis-
lature in Centre county to ascertain
their attitude on the prohibition ques-
tion with reference to the enforcement
of the Volstead act as it now stands.
The time and place of next year’s
gathering was left to the official
Only 766 Women Paid Poll Tax in
Only a little over fifty per cent. of
the women of voting age in Bellefonte
will be able to walk up to the polls
and cast their ballot on election day
for the reason that just 766 out of a
total of 1357 paid their poll tax. At
the regular registration August 31st
and September 1st 1290 women of
voting age were enrolled in Belle-
fonte. Subsequently sixty-seven
names were added to the list on cer-
tificate, making a total of 1357. But
of this big total only 766 have quali-
fied as voters by paying their poll tax
on or before Saturday, October 2nd.
But their inability to vote at the com-
ing election will not excuse the other
591 from paying their tax. Their
names and the amount of tax assessed
against them, 15 cents, have been cer-
tified by the county commissioners to
the tax collector and it is that official’s
business to make the collection.
Now over at Centre Hall conditions
are so much different that out of a to-
tal of 212 women registered 201 have
paid their tax, and it is just possible
that some of the others have, and
their names overlooked. This shows
conclusively that the women of that
place not only wanted suffrage but
now that they have been given it they
intend to exercise their rights, and we
look for a good report from that town
on the night of November 2nd.
Legislative Candidates Interviewed.
A committee appointed by the Cen-
tre county Woman’s Christian Tem-
perance Union to interview the two
candidates for the Legislature in Cen-
tre county called upon Mr. Frank E.
Naginey and Mr. Thomas Beaver to
learn their attitude on the prohibition
question in its relation to the enforce-
ment of the Volstead act and the up-
holding of the same, or any other act
equally as effective. Neither candi-
date would declare himself, but Mr.
Beaver said he would stand by the Re-
publican party and the Governor.

old, old friend, J. W. Young, of Howard,
dropped in for a moment’s chat. We men-
cause Mr. Young had driven all the way
here in a farm wagon and intended taking
a load of lime back with him. In these
days of motor trucks a thirteen mile drive
is really no longer than it used to be, but
it seems a lot longer. And when we con-
sider that Mr. Young is seventy-six we
must admit that it was some undertaking.
He didn’t look on it that way, however.
He has been an active, hard working far-
mer all of his life and accustomed to get-
ting up in the morning.

Luther, they motored to Bellefonte to do a
little shopping and while the others were
busy Tom dropped in to the “Watchman”
office for a call. He is now in the general
contracting business, with road building
as the principal line and he has been so
busy that it has been seven years since he
has been back to old Centre county. He
feigned surprise to find the writer actually
working, but when we told him of the
scarcity and independence of printers
nowadays he only laughed and told us
that on a job he had last winter the only
way he could get any of his men out to
work was by sending automobiles to their
homes in the morning and taking them
back again at night.
—Mr. and Mrs, James Darcey, of Wash-
ington, motored here on Monday and will
remain until today visiting Mrs. Darcey’s
uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. J. Mitchell
Cunningham, of Willowbank street. They
had rather a strenuous time coming up,
as it was raining and there were bad de-
tours to be made so that instead of mak-
ing the run in one day, as they had antic-
ipated, it took two. Returning they will
go by Bedford and the Lincoln highway.
The Darcey’s “ship came in” recently when
they were presented with two lots in Clar-
endon, Virginia, just across the river from
Washington, and they have already erect-
ed a bungalow and are living now in that
delightful suburb. It is a novelty for
them after the congested city quarters and
in addition it takes them out of fhe Dis-
trict and locates them in Virginia, where
Mr. Darcey will be able to vote for the
first time in his life as he has been a resi-
dent of Washington ever since childhood.
In all probability Mrs. Darcey will vote
before he does because he has not been a
resident of Virginia quite long enough to
qualify for this fall.
