The above tells the story in brief of
the work done in Bellefonte on Mon-
day by the Clean-up Squad under the
direction of the Red Cross, the Amer-
ican Legion and the Home Service
Bureau. It also tells in brief that
more young men in Centre county are
suffering as the result of their serv-
ice in the world war than the public
had any idea of.
Twenty men composed the squad, as
follows: Dr. H. H. Hibsman, field
manager; Dr. T. W. Penrose, assist-
ant field manager; F. P. Petrott, legal
advisor; Dr. Leonard D. Fresceln
heart and lung specialist; Dr. Milton
K. Meyers, neuropsy chartrist and
specialist on endrocrine disturbances;
Dr. Thomas J. O'Dell, adjuster ortho-
pedist and prosthetic appliances; Dr.
William D. Barry, eyes, ear, nose and
throat specialist; Drs. Hilton A. Wick,
Russell G. Witman, John Spector,
Fancis X. McCarthy and Leo J. Laux,
general medical examiners; John V.
Murray, chief of interviewers; Chris
Shaw and William Martin, interview-
ers; Edward F. Mahoney and Morris
Stark, expert stenographers, and Hor-
ace Lorimer Magee, special messen-
ger between the squad and the district
office in Philadelphia.
The squad arrived in Bellefonte on
Sunday and they must have heard of
the town before because a number of
them spent a portion of the afternoon
watching the trout in Spring creek.
The county commissioners kindly
granted the squad the use of the
court house and assisting in the pre-
liminary arrangements were members
of the local Red Cross, the Brooks-
Doll Post and others. The squad also
enlisted the assistance of Dr. J. L.
Seibert and Dr. M. W. Reed, as spe-
cial examiners; Miss Royer, the com-
munity nurse, and Miss Sara Leitzell
and Miss Pauline Clemens, registered
nurses. Miss Geraldine Noonan and
Miss Grace Sasserman, with Misses
Esther Hines, Helen M. Smith, Ruth
Poorman, and Eloise L. Smith, from
the Bellefonte High school, were se-
cured as additional stenographers.
The work done by the squad was
thorough in every particular. As
stated above, they were kept busy
from nine o’clock in the morning un-
til ten at might before the last case
was disposed of. Questions relating
to lost ‘discharges, Liberty bonds,
compensation insurance; back pay,
travel pay, allotments and allowances,
dependeney “claims ~ and: “vocational
training were handled and adjusted,
eliminating ‘much of the delay that
would necessarily occur if the cases
had been transferred to the district
office in ‘Williamsport. Information
was also given regarding prosthetic
appliances and men were provided
with these when deemed necessary.
Dr. Hibsman commended the work
of the local Red Cross and other or-
ganizations ‘on their interest in the
ex-service men. . He also stated that
this would ‘not be the final opportuni-
ty for disabled ex-service men to file
claims for compensation, but he did
suggest that all claims for vocational
training should be filed before De-
cember 16th, 1922. He also stated
that claims of less than ten per cent.,
if connected with the service, for med-
ical and dental treatment, must be
filed before August 9th, 1922.
The rehabilitation act provides for
two kinds of training, as specified in
Sections 2 and 3. Section 2 training
may be established by proving that
an occupational handicap exists. In
other words, a man must prove that
he is unable to carry on at his pre-
war occupation. This may be proven
by. medical examination, affidavits,
employer's statements, physician’s
statements, etc. A man who has been
awarded Section 8 training only,
which is training without pay, is at
liberty to appeal his case to Section 2
training, (training with pay), by fur-
nishing information as above speci-
All new claimants for compensa-
tion should consult the Red Cross,
which will furnish desired informa-
tion and assist in making out the nec-
essary forms. All ex-service men
who allowed their insurance to lapse
are urged to renew the same, which
can be done by paying two month’s
All local expenses incident to the
squad’s visit to Bellefonte was borne

Over the Hill.
A screen event of more than ordi-
nary interest is “Over the Hill,” now
being shown at the Scenic and opera
house—matinees at Scenic and even-
ing shows at opera house. The picture
was put on yesterday and will contin-
ue to be shown today and tomorrow.
“Qver the Hill” is based on Will
Carleton’s famous poem, “Over the
Hill to the Poor House,” published in
another column of this paper. It is
a picture that grips the heart and
must be seen to be fully appreciated.
——A musicale will be given in St.
John’s Episcopal church Tuesday
evening, February 7th, at 7:45 o’clock.
Talent from Lock Haven, State Col-
lege and Bellefonte will assist’ and
the program for the same, with the
names of the soloists, will be printed
in next week’s issue.

Five Excellent Educational Films

Free movies have been one of the
educational features used in the

two charming talented ans club. Five films were presented:
| young ladies presenting a program of | “Father Knickerbockers Children,” de-
interest, variety and worth. The pro-
gram consists of refreshing novelties,
songs by alto and soprano, duets, pi-
anologues, violin solos, readings, and
ukelele selections. Their versatility
as instrumentalists, vocalists and
readers insures a full return for the
50 cents admission.
Watch for the Hoop-La Minstrels.
The Brooks-Doll Post of the Amer-
ican Legion began rehearsing last
night for the big “Hoop-La Minstrels”
which will be staged in the opera
house two nights, Thursday and Fri-
day evenings, February 9th and 10th.
The minstrels will be given under the
direction of the John B. Rogers Co.
management, the same company, in
fact, thathad charge of the produc-
tions of “Katcha-Koo” and “The
Feast of the Red Corn” when they
were produced in Bellefonte. Bear in
mind the dates as the boys promise
Academy News Notes.
The American Legion and the Belle-
meet in the armory this (Friday)
ises to be an exciting game and every
fan should be there.
Since the holiday vacation a dozen
fine young men have entered the
Academy and in order to take care of
all his students headmaster James R.
Hughes has found it necessary to
take six of his boys into his own
residence. In fact the Academy has
never been so crowded as at present,
and still new boys are applying for
All-Star Minstrels at Millheim.
The Bellefonte All-Star Minstrel
company journeyed to Millheim last
Friday and that evening staged an
entertainment before a large audi-
ence that justified all advance notices.
The first half of the entertainment,
conducted in true minstrel style, was
very well rendered and loudly ap-
plauded. The end men were fine and
the interlocutor, Dale S. Musser, fill-
ed his position like a professional while
the entire circle furnished splendid
support. The second half of the pro-
gram was mostly vaudeville and was
equal in interest to the first part. In
fact it would be unfair to all the per-
formers to mention any one of them
specially, as they all filled their parts
amazingly well, and the fact that al-
most every number was liberally ap-
plauded and encores were frequently
demanded, is evidence that the per-
fomance was appreciated by an audi-
ence numbering close to four hun-
Philipsburg Firebugs Held of Court.
Byron Lewis and William Reed, two
young men of Philipsburg, have been
held in $1000 bail each for trial in the
Centre county court on the charge of
having attempted to burn a vacant
blacksmith shop owned by John Hart-
ley, in that town, on the morning of
January 20th. The building had been
set on fire but the flames did little
damage before they were discovered
and extinguished. The two young
men were arrested Saturday night and
at a hearing before burgess Harry
Todd, on Sunday, they confessed that
they were intoxicated when they plan-
ned the deed. In reply to an inquiry
as to where they got the liquor they
stated at the Continental hotel and
acting upon that information Sanford
Lewis, father of Byron Lewis, swore
out a warrant for the arrest of the
landlord of the hotel and his wife,
and both were held under four hun-
dred dollars bail for their appearance
at court. Both young Lewis and
Reed were members of the Reliance
fire company and at a meeting of the
company on Monday evening both

tiful Carpathian mountains, the Red
Cross established a colony for bring-
ing back to health and happiness, the
little tots who had suffered by the
war; “The Story of the Orange,” a
beautiful industrial picture telling in
precise sequence each chapter in the
life of the orange from the tiny bud
to the golden fruit, picked, boxed and
transported. These three films were
furnished by the Red Cross. “The
Tournament of Youth” and “Out of
The Shadow” were from the Nation-
al Tuberculosis Association. The lat-
ter was prepared by the Department
of Agriculture of the State of Con-
necticut and illustrates proper meth-
ods of handling farm products, espe-
cially milk, as a prevention against
disease, with special reference to tu-
berculosis. It would be well if every
dairyman could have seen it for few
communities seem as indifferent as
ours to the advisability of having
milk from tuberculin-tested cows.
Rush Township Man Perished in Big
The finding of the body of Robert
Cole, a resident of Rush township, on
Sunday, about half a mile from the
Rounders hunting club camp, reveals
a tragedy of the big snow storm of
January 10th. About a year ago
Cole, who was a veteran of the world
war, married Miss Henrietta Walk, a
daughter of George W. Walk, who
lives on the old Simcox place in Rush
township. Since that time he and his
wife had lived at the Walk home.
On the morning of January 10th
Mr. Cole left the Walk home to walk
to the home of his brother, Henry
Cole, who lives on the Haworth farm,
some six miles across the mountain,
on the quest of a job. He arrived
there late in the forenoon and stayed
for dinner. On learning that he could
not secure work there he decided to
walk back as far as the camp of the
Nant-y-Glo hunting club where his
wife was staying temporarily. That
was the last seen of him alive.
When his wife learned that her hus-
band was not at the home of her
brother, and had not returned to the
Walk home she naturally became
alarmed and notified the authorities.
On Sunday Frank Reynclds and Bar-
ney Robison, two Philipsburg men
who know almost every foot of ground
in Rush township, started out to
search for the missing man. Starting
at the Henry Cole home they were
not long in finding the dead body, not-
withstanding the fact that it was par-
tially covered with snow and ice. The
supposition is that Cole became be-
wildered in the blinding snow storm
and being unable to find his way
through the woods, finally sank down
exhausted and froze to death.

High School Loses Close Game.
Last Friday night the Bellefonte
High school basket ball team met their
first defeat of the season on the home
floor by the Mt. Union five, in one of
the most interesting and exciting
games that has ever been played in
the armory. From start to finish if
was the nip and tuck struggle of two
evenly matched teams. During the
first half neither team had over a
three point lead on their rival and ‘at
the ending of it Bellefonte led by a
score of 11 to 9. The second half
opened with a whirl and the local
team soon had a five point lead. But
during the closing minutes of play an
unfortunate accident occurred that
probably cost Bellefonte the game.
Katz, whose stellar guarding had
been largely responsible for Mt. Un-
ion’s light scoring, suffered injuries
of the instep and knee and was forced
to retire. The visitors then forced
the play and the game ended in a 20
to 20 tie. During the five minutes ex-
tra period Mt. Union brought the
score to 24-21 in their favor.
