Opening of Trout Season Yielded Good
Returns to Host of Fishermen.
Last Friday morning was ideal
weather for the opening of the trout
fishing season and about every man
and boy who owned a rod and line was
out trying his luck. And most of
them were out early, too, as is evi-
denced by the fact that passengers on
the Lewisburg train which left Belle-
fonte at 6:30 a. m. counted seventy-
six fishermen on Logan’s branch be-
tween the Titan Metal company’s
plant and the fish hatchery. And tak-
en as a whole that stream yielded the
poorest returns of any stream in this
section on the opening day, while
Spring creek offered up a bounteous
supply of the speckled beauties. In
fact, one fisherman told the writer
that it was literally speaking a shame
the way the trout were pulled out of
that creek on Friday.
To begin with the stream was un-
usually low and the trout had congre-
gated in the deepest pools they could
find and naturally there were many of
them in each pool, so that all a fish-
erman had to do was hunt a pool and
go to work. The trout bit freely and
a score of fishermen got the limit.
The trout ran in size from six to four-
i teen inches, but the majority were
from six to ten.
No unusually large catches were
made in the vicinity of Bellefonte, so
far as numbers are concerned, but the
banner catch of the day was made by
Frank Kern. While he got but elev-
en trout, fishing between the MecCal-
mont & Co. office and Milesburg, he
| got one which measured 23% inches
and weighed four pounds; another 18
inches long and one 16 inches. Dr.
| Kilpatrick got fourteen, his biggest
‘one being 16 inches. William Winton
| got twenty-two for his day’s work but
none of them exceedingly large.
Among those who got the limit up
Spring creek were Joseph Thal, Ray
Strunk, Ed Miller, Willis Shuey and
others whose names could not be
Of course quite a number of Belle-
fonters idealize Fishing creek as the
i dently the fame of this remarkable
stream has spread beyond the confines
of Pennsylvania, because on Thursday
evening a fully equipped fisherman ar-
rived in Bellefonte from Cumberland,
Md., and inquired how he could get to
Fishing creek. Of course that stream
was lined with fishermen on the open-
ing day and quite a number got the
limit... Among them were James C.
Furst, Charles M. McCurdy, George
R. Meek, W. C. Coxey, T. H. Harter
and others.
Three fishermen from Uniontown,
namely, C. E. Cornish, Bryson Heath
and Lyman Roderick, were caught in
the act of fishing for trout in the clos-
ed portion of Spring creek just below
the falls on Monday night, and also
using’ outlines, were placed under ar-
rest on Tuesday morning and at a
hearing before ’Squire S. Kline Wood-
ring were each fined $120.00 and costs,
or a total of $385.50, which they paid.
The “Watchman” last week ex-
pressed the belief that most of the big
trout had been scooped out of the
“creek below the falls on Wednesday
"night of last week, thirty-six hours
before the opening of the trout fish-
ing season, and since then'the police
have kept a superficial watch over the
stream but failed to catch any one.
Monday night, or rather a little after
one o’clock on Tuesday morning Fred
Love, Russell Lambert and Gilbert
Waite came out of Moerschbacher’s
restaurant after eating a lunch and
noticed two men standing on the
bridge and acting in a rather suspi-
‘cious manner. Walking up onto the
bridge they discovered a man down in
the creek just below the falls.
Love and Waite walked out Water
street and just as they reached the
‘falls they saw the man pitch an out-
line out into the stream. In the mean-
| time Lambert went up town, hunted
‘up policeman Yerger and reported
| what they had seen. Mr. Yerger call-
ied the sheriff and they came down
| town just in time to see the three men
' enter the Bush house. They then went
| out to the falls and investigated, pull-
ing in the outline on which was one
sixteen inch trout.
Inquiry later developed the fact
that the three men had gone to bed at
the Bush house but a close watch was
kept until morning to see that they
didn’t get away. About six o’clock
the three men came out of the hotel
and went around to the Beatty garage
where they had their Ford car. They
were promptly recognized as the men
who were seen the night before and
the sheriff and policeman Yerger fol-
lowed them to the garage and placed
them under arrest.
They were taken to jail and later
information was made against the
three of them, charging them with
fishing in a closed stream and also
fishing with illegal devices. They
were taken for a hearing before
’Squire Woodring at ten o’clock in the
morning, but they all plead guilty to
the charge. In explanation they stat-
ed that they had been up in Lycoming
county on a fishing trip and had met
with poor luck. Coming to Bellefonte
on Monday afternoon they were at-
tracted to Spring creek by the “No
Fishing” signs and naturally walked
out along the creek. Seeing a few big
trout below the falls they decided to
stay over and run the risk of getting
Of course, having plead guilty the
only thing the ’Squire could do was
impose the stipulated fine and costs,
$120.00 for each man and $25.50 costs,
or a total of $385.50. One of the fish-
ermen, by the way, Mr. Roderick,

claimed to be a relative of State Sen-
ator Crow.
The members of the Sportsmen's
association of Bellefonte, are raising |

between the three young men, Fred

Waite, who detected the illegal fish-
ermen and notified the officers. :

High School Athletics.
The plan to have more students
participate in athletics at the High
school is succeeding very well. By
means of the class baseball teams and
the track work, between sixty and
seventy-five boys take part, as against
fifteen for basket ball.
During the past week the Seniors
won their second game of class base-
ball by defeating the Juniors 3-0. On
Saturday the Varsity team went to
Centre Hall where they defeated the
strong High school team of that town
by the score of 8-7.
This week and next, with hope of
fair weather, both the track and base-
ball squads will work hard to prepare
for the coming contests. The former
are determined that the first county
track championship shall come to
Bellefonte on April 30th. The latter
are anxious to make up for the foot-
ball defeat given by State College last
fall, by winning the pair of baseball
games this spring. The first of these
will be at Bellefonte on May 4th.
State College Warmly Welcomed New
Dr. John W. Thomas, the new presi-
dent of The Pennsylvania State Col-
lege, arrived at that institution last
Friday, having made the trip from
Middlebury, Vt., by automobile, tak-
ing four days for the trip. The en-
tire student body lined up on the cam-
pus to greet the new president and
he made his initial speech to them
from the steps of Old Main. This
week Dr. Thomas has been busy get-
ting comfortably located in the pres-
ident’s house and making acquaint-
ance of members of the faculty and
students. He will naturally take
things a little easy at first until he
gets acquainted with the general rou-
tine of the president’s work at the
While the date of his official inau-
guration as the new president has not
vet been set it will likely not be un-
til some time next fall, possibly either
on October 15th, the annual alumni
home coming day, or November bth,
Pennsylvania day. Dr. Thomas will
deliver the annual commencement ad-
dress in June and then go back to Mid-
dlebury College to deliver the annual
commencement address there.
Though Dr. Edwin Erle Sparks has
retired as president of the College he
will not be lost to that institution, but
has been assigned an honorable fac-
ulty chair as lecturer on American
history. He just recently returned to
the College - after spending several
months on a tour through southern
Guy Bonfatto Slashed with Big Knife
by Charles Montzell.
Had it not been for the timely as-
sistance of Edward Eberhart we might
now be telling the story of a brutal
murder instead ‘of a serious stabbing
affray which took place on Tuesday
afternoon on east Lamb street. The
principals in the case were Guy Bon-
fatto, the little Italian who for the
past two years has so successfully
conducted a green gocery store in the
Bush Arcade, and Charlie Montzell,
another Italian, who was employed by
the American Lime and Stone compa-
ny until the plants were shut down
when he started a fish route in Belle-
fonte and later added fruits to his
stock in trade. This not only created
a rivalry between he and Bonfatto
but distinctly bad blood, as Montzell
blamed Bonfatto for interfering with
his trade.
Tuesday afternoon Bonfatto and
his clerk, Mike Corsica, were up on
east Lamb street making deliveries of
fruit and just as they stopped their
car in front of W. J. Musser’s house
Montzell with his old black horse and
spring wagon drove up from Linn
street. Seeing Bonfatto in the act of
taking a basket of fruit into the Mus-
ser home Montzell drew a big knife
and made for him. Bonfatto was tak-
en unawares and Montzell slashed
him before he had a chance to defend
himself. Corsica jumped out of the
car and ran to Bonfatto’s assistance
but could do very little to help him as
Montzell slashed and cut like a raving
maniac. Fortunately Edward Eber-
hart, who drives for Herr & Heverly,
drove up onto the street and he ran
to the rescue, wrenching the murder-
ous knife from Montzell’s hand and
then choking him until Bonfatto got
out of his clutches.
Corsica and Eberhart naturally
gave their first attention to Bonfatto,
who had received a bad cut on the
right side of the face down to the
point of the chin, a cut over the abdo-
men, one in the back and one on the
upper part of the right arm. Mont-
zell ran down Lamb street and up
Ridge and disappeared. In the mean-
time persons who saw the stabbing
telephoned for the sheriff and state
police and they promptly started on
the trail of the frenzied Italian. Bon-
fatto was hurriedly taken to a doc-
tor’s office and from there to the hos-
pital where his cuts were sewed up.
While serious enough they were for-
tunately found not critical and after
being given proper attention he re-
turned to his lodgings in the Bush Ar-
Montzell got away from the officers
and might still be at large had it not
been for the story of a woman living
on Reservoir hill who stated that she
had seen a man crawling into Angelo
Genna’s chicken coop.’ The sheriff
was promptly notified and he and the
state police hastened to Genna’s home
and the man proved to be Montzell.
He was hauled out of the coop and
promptly taken to jail to await trial
at the next term of court.
Hard Cider Precipitates Fight.
On Sunday evening word was tele-
phoned to Bellefonte that a murder
had been committed in the neighbor-
hood of the Advent church and sheriff
Harry Dukeman and a member of the
state police beat it out as quickly as
possible to capture the murderer, but
when they got there they found that
instead of a murder it had been a gen-
eral fight between Constance Sharp
and John Barndt, precipitated by the
too free indulgence in hard cider.
Sharp got the worst of the bargain,
as he was more or less cut and bruis-
ed about the head where Barndt had
hit him with the flat side of a double
bitted axe. Both men were placed
under arrest, brought to Bellefonte
and placed in the Centre county jail.
S. 0. S. Call for China.
15,000,000 Chinese are face to face
with starvation. The Chinese govern-
ment, England, Australia and the
United States have sent help, but not
enough. We must save 5,000,000 men,
women and children until the middle
of June or relief will come too late
for many and those not strengthened
will be unable to reap their spring
harvest and support themselves.
No American is so poor that he can-
not save a life at the lowest rate ever
quoted—3 cents a day or $1.00 a
month; $2.00 will save a life until

; The Abramsen Engineering Co.
For some time past an effort has
been in progress in Bellefonte to dis-
pose of fifty thousand dollars stock in
the Abramsen Engineering company
in order to keep the plant in Belle-
fonte. The question of the sale of
this stock was the main thing discus-
sed at the regular meeting of the Bus-
iness Men’s Association on Wednes-
day evening. In explanation it might
be said that there is nothing financial-
ly wrong with the company. One or
more of the present members are
going to withdraw therefrom for good
and sufficient reasons, and while the
company can get plenty of other capi-
tal to go ahead on it is with the pro-
, viso that the plant be moved to Pitts-
burgh. Bellefonte, however, can keep
| the plant here by taking stock to the
| amount of $50,000. About $38,000 of
| this amount has been raised and if the
i plant is to be kept here the balance
must be taken by Saturday. It
was to urge the necessity of acting
quickly that interested the Business
Men’s association. Any person inter-
ested should see either Robert F. Hun-
ter or Charles M. McCurdy.
. Hospital Commencement, May 13th.
Plans are being completed for the
annual commencement exercises of the
Bellefonte hospital training school for
nurses, which will be held in the court
house, Friday evening, May 13th.
The following young ladies will grad-
uate: Misses Grayce Vallimont, Mary
Royer, Margaret Young, Bertha
Smith and May Mong.
In view of the coming commence-
ment the nurse’s home has been the
scene of some very pleasant social af-
fairs. Recently the Seniors tendered
a very delightful farewell party to the
underclasses and on last Saturday
evening the class of nineteen-twenty-
two gave their reception to the grad-
uating class. On both occasions the
nurse’s home was prettily decorated
with cut flowers, and class and school
colors. Guests were present from Al-
toona, State College, and other places,
and after spending the evening in

To Plant Black Walnut Trees.
The Centre County Conservation
Association has received from the
State Forestry Department at Harris-
burg 3000 seedlings of the black wal-
nut tree. It is planned to have these
trees planted on the state forests. In
years to come they will furnish food
for squirrels and other forest animals.
The black walnut tree requires a
moist, rich soil for best development.
It should be planted on the bottom
land along streams and in open spots,
for black walnut will not grow in the
shade. Hunting clubs and others who
wish to plant this tree near their cab-
ins should apply to the chairman of
the forestry or game committee in
their conservation district, or to Pro-
fessor George R. Green, chairman of
the forestry committee, Forestry
building, State College, Pa.
