M. Hil- ler, who was stricken with paralysis two weeks ago, is slightly improved, and everything possible known to medical science is being done for his relief. Since the need for food is so great in China, the Y. W. girls decid- ed at a special meeting to give the fif- ty dollars they made at their dance, to the Chinese relief fund. Eleanor Weston, president of the club, will have charge of the Chinese life sav- ing stamps for the town and county. Any one can secure these stamps by calling Miss Weston. W. C. Rowe has resigned his position as chief clerk at the Bush house, a position he filled for a num- : ber of years past, and W. Lester Mus- ser has been secured by the manage- ment as his successor. Inasmuch as Mr. Musser was employed in a similar capacity at the Bush house a number of years ago the job is not new to him and there is no question but that he will make a good man for his em- ployers. The Lutheran Brotherhood will meet tonight in the social rooms of the church, at 6:30, when dinner will be served. Prof. Weik’s High school orchestra will furnish music. Captain “Jack” Schoch, of Williamsport, who has been intimately allied with mili- tary life for twenty years, will speak on “Through the Mud of France and Still Smiling.” Chaplain Young will tell some interesting things concern- ing his recent trip to California. strels are rounding into shape for their annual entertainment on the evenings of May 19th and 20th. The fifteen young ladies of Bellefonte who will take part will undoubtedly prove a big drawing card. Many new fea- tures will be introduced, while the songs will all be new and the reper- toire of: jokes and quips the best and most appealing of and collected by the Academy minstrels. Don’t forget the: dates. Work ‘on resurfacing the state highway on Bishop, Allegheny and Linn streets will be started by the State Highway Department next Mon- day morning at the corner of Alleghe- ny and Bishop streets, working east on Bishop street. During the work that street will be closed to traffic. The Department will also eliminate that dangerous reverse curve on the Nittany valley road beyond the avia- tion field by cutting across the old roadbed of the Nittany Valley railroad, thus doing away with that dangerous spot. All persons who are cleaning house and clearing out many articles of furniture, clothing or utensils that are of no further use to them should keep in mind the rummage sale which the women will have during the first week in May. It will be held in the Undine engine house and if you have anything that could be used by some one else less fortunately placed than yourself call Mrs. Brouse or send it to the Undine engine house, where it will be pepared for the sale, the exact . date of which will be announced next week. A convention of the county Christian Endeavor Union will be held in the United Brethren church, Belle- fonte, on May 27th. Every Christian Endeavor society in the county is urg- ed to send one or more delegates. Temporary officers of the Union were elected at the reorganization meeting held at Centre Hall in February, but permanent officers will be: chosen at .the convention to be held in May. “This will be the first convention held (Sinee 1916. E. R. Buller, a student at «State College, is the present tempor- ary chairman. B ‘The “Watchman” has been in- formed that a eall has been extended Rev. M. DePue Maynard to become as- sistant rector to Rev. Upton at the Episcopal church in Germantown, but ‘whether he will accept or not remains ‘to be seen. It is also stated that a delegation from a large Presbyterian thurch in New York were present in the Bellefonte Presbyterian church on Sunday evening to hear Dr. McKinney preach. Both gentlemen are such able exponents of the Holy Truth that their many friends would naturally regret to see them leave Bellefonte. Bellefonte and Pennsvalley will be about as greatly isolated during the summer as they were in the days before railroads and automobiles. According to an official notice pub- lished in another column of this pa- per the road over the mountain to Centre Hall will be closed, at least, until the first of August, and all traf- fic will have to be by way of Lemont. It is a big way around to get a short distance but it is one of the incon- veniences that the public must endure if they want the public highways im- proved, and that is one thing most everybody wants these days. The Bellefonte Academy min-- MANY FISH CAUGHT FIRST DAY. 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 learned. 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. ILLEGAL FISHERMEN GIVEN HEAVY : FINE. 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 some. 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, , for the murder early in 1920 of Rosa- | ings, but there was no evidence pro- only place to go for trout, and evi- | : at the various churches. claimed to be a relative of State Sen- ator Crow. REWARD FOR INFORMANTS. The members of the Sportsmen's association of Bellefonte, are raising | a purse which will be divided equally between the three young men, Fred Love, Russell Lambert and Gilbert Waite, who detected the illegal fish- ermen and notified the officers. : ——Don’t fail to see the demonstra- | tion of the Westinghouse automatic elecric range at the Electric Supply Co., all this week. 16-1t ——That wonderful picture, “Way Down East,” has come and gone and most of the people in Bellefonte went to see it. Of course all motion pic- tures are not put out with the same magnitude as “Way Down East” but good pictures can be seen any night at the Scenic. In fact they are the best to be had and are sure to offer two hours of entertainment every evening. ——Antonio Insano, of Jefferson county, was electrocuted at the Rock- view penitentiary on Monday morning rio Panzerello, having lain in wait in the rear of his home and when Panze- rello went to feed his pigs shot him. Insanio claimed that Panzerello had robbed him of $2,000, his life’s sav- duced at the trial to show that his story was correct. ——A forest fire recently burned over 150 acres of State land and about 100 acres of private owned land in Gregg township, Centre county, ac- cording to a report sent to the Penn- sylvania Department of Forestry by district forester Bartschat, of Milroy. The flames were fanned by a high wiind, and they were finally controlled by forest rangers Smith and McKin- ney and a crew of fifty men. The fire started in the vicinity of Summit road, and the damage is estimated at $2,000. Program for Children’s Week. Sunday, April 24th, sermons on “The Religious Nurture of the Child.” The same afternoon a mass meeting of the parents and all teach- ers will be held in Petrikin hall at 3 o'clock. Rev. H. S. McClintock, of Philipsburg, will address the meeting. Mrs. Krader will have charge of the music.

Wednesday evening the congregational meeting Friday night the pageant, “The Rights of a Child,” scheduled to take place in the Presbyterian church at 8 o'clock. No admission, but an offer- ing will be lifted to defray expenses of children’s treat. j Sunday afternoon at 2.30 o’clock all Sunday school members are to meet at their respective rooms and form for parade. This parade will be headed by the Odd Fellows band. 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. c——————eeeteneeret— State College Warmly Welcomed New President. 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 college. 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 States. ITALIAN STABBING AFFRAY. 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- cade. 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. eit... 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 harvest. Even if you have already given, give again, that life may be saved. This call is to the whole of Centre county. Is there not some one in each community who will volunteer to co- operate with the committee? Life saving stamps (3 cents a piece) can be procured from Miss Eleanor Weston, Bellefonte. The need is imperative. Please re- spond to some member of the commit- tee, or better, volunteer to raise what you can in your own locality. What you do, do quickly. Committee—Mr. Charles McCurdy, treasurer; Rev. M. DeP. - Maynard, Mrs. Robert Mills Beach, Mrs. R. S. Brouse, Miss Margaret H. Cook, Miss Mary Hunter Linn and Miss Eleanor Weston, all of Bellefonte. etn gash Community Party. A community party will be given in the Town Hall, Bellefonte, on Wednes- day evening, May 4th, from eight un- til twelve o'clock. There will be dancing, cards and re- freshments, under the direction of the Woman's Guild of St. John’s Episco- pal church and the music will be fur- nished by the Academy orchestra. An admission of 75 cents will be charg- ed. 16-2t A ESA NEWS PURELY PERSONAL. —Judge Henry C.

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.

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. er ———— een een seems. Road Closed Between Pleasant Gap and Centre Hall.
