New Insurance Agency for State
One of the important business
transactions that has taken place in
State College during the present sum-
mer is the sale of the fire insurance
agency conducted for a number of
years past by Mr. John L. Holmes, to
Mr. John T. Taylor, who took poses-
sion of the business yesterday. With
Mr. Taylor will be associated Mr.
Lynn R. Daugherty, and it is the in-
tention of these men to continue the
former agency of Mi. Holmes along
more general and complete lines, mak-
ing available to the public not only
fire, but accident, life, and other types
of insurance service.
Both Mr. Taylor and Mr. Daugherty
are well known to the residents of
State College. The former has been
a member of the faculty in the School
of Liberal Arts of The Pennsylvania
State College since 1918, and recently
resigned his position in the depart-
ment of economics to enter his new
activities. For the past three years
Mr. Taylor has been in charge of in-
struction in the advertising and in fire
and life insurance and he is well ac-
quainted with these lines of endeavor,
both in theory and practice. For some
time he has been very active in pro-
moting the welfare of State College,
and when the Chamber of Commerce
was organized recently, was elected
its secretary, a position which he now
holds and to which he devotes much
of his time.
Mr. Daugherty is a graduate of
Penn State of the class of 1914. Since
1917 he has been the district agent in
Centre county for the Connecticut Mu-
tual Life Insurance company, of Hart-
ford, Connecticut, and in that capaci-
ty has become well known in this vi-
The new firm has leased an office in
the front part of the second floor of
the Wood building at 118 south Allen
street, just over the entrance to the
Pastime theatre, and will henceforth
carry on its activities in that location.
This office will be in charge of Miss
Clara T. Bateson, of Scranton, Pa.,
who comes possessing a wide exper-
ience in the insurance business and an
expert knowledge of the most modern
and approved methods in agency man-
agement, being thoroughly acquaint-
ed with the latest filing and indexing
systems used in the underwriting pro-
Pittsburgh Pirates to Play in Hunt-
When George Gibson’s Pittsburgh
Pirates of the National league drop
into Huntingdon on September 7th,
for a game with Huntingdon, local
fans are to have the rare privilege of
getting a look at the team that has
the inside track to the pennant in the
National league race. That the Pitts-
burgh boys are pretty sure to be on
top at the finish is not guess work,
but the assertion is made after a very
close analysis of the playing talent in
the National. One does not have to
go far in testing the playing strength
of the various clubs in the old circuit
to come to the decision that in every
department of the game the Bucca-
neers have the edge on their oppo-
Huntingdon will present a very
strong line up and are determined to
make Pittsburgh hustle to the limit
to win. Randolph and Donelson will
pitch. The outfield and infield will be
selected from the best players of the
Huntingdon and Mount Union teams.
