“Information to the Public”—By a
New Voter.
When it became certain in the sum-
mer of 1920, that women would vote
at the approaching election, efforts
were at once made to instruct them
in regard to their new duties and
privileges. The newspapers explain-
ed, laboriously, how to mark a ballot,
—not, after all, a very mysterious
performance. Schools for political in-
struction were started in some places,
and at clubs and other gatherings,
prominent men, some of them college
presidents, delivered addresses on
“The Education of Women for Citi-
zenship,” and similar topics.
But with all the instruction that
has been given, there are some points
that have not been explained, and that
puzzle new voters. One of these is
the matter of election expenses. There
is an Act of Assembly which is enti-
tled “An Act to regulate nomination
and election expenses and to require
accounts of nomination and election
expenses to be filed, and providing
penalties for the violation of this act.”
That is its title, but it is generally
called by the suggestive title, “The
Corupt Practice Act.” Is it possible
that corrupt practices in connection
with elections had become so open and
so general, and so flagrant, that an
Act of Assembly was passed in an ef-
fort to check them? Is it possible
that there was danger that elections
should register the amount of money
that a candidate or a political party
was willing to spend, instead of reg-
istering the sovereign will of the sov-
ereign people? We get our Presi-
dents and our Governors, our Nation-
al and State Legislators, our judges
of various courts, by way of elections.
Is it possible that those who reach
these responsible positions have some-
times reached them by the illegal us
of money at elections? :
Do those!who aspire to be law-mak-
ers begin by being law-breakers? .
The passage of the Act under con-
sideration suggests that they have
done so in the past.
New voters have heard whispers
" that candidates are scored and scori-
ed as “tight wads,” if they fail te put
up a'generous amount of money be-
fore an election. Such whispers are
very disconcerting to those who have
read, with admiration, the words of
the immortal Lincoln concerning “A
government of the people, by the peo-
ple, and for the people.” 3
Any information that will clear up
this subject will be thankfully receiv-
Judge Head, of the Superior court,
says of the “Corrupt Practice Act,”
“It was the legislative response to a
vigorous demand by the people that
a remedy be found to stop the corrup-
tion fast becoming an incident of our
popular. elections, which, if uncheck-
ed, would soon destroy the free and
honest expression of the will of the
The Act recognizes “lawful expens-
es” in connection with the nomination
and election of candidates. These law-
ful expenses are divided into eight
classes, as follows:
First. For printing and traveling
expenses, and personal expenses inci-
dent thereto, stationery, advertising,
postage, expressage, freight, tele-
graph, telephone, and public messen-
ger services.
Second. For dissemination of in-
formation to the public. eo
Third. For political meetings, dem-
onstrations and conventions and for
the pay and transportation of speak-
Fourth. For the rent, maintenance
and furnishing of offices.
Fifth. For the payment of clerks,
typewriters, stenographers, janitors,
and messengers, actually employed.
Sixth. For the employment of
watchers at primary meetings and
elections, to the number allowed by
law. ;
Seventh. For the transportation of
voters to and from the polls.
Eighth. For legal expenses, bona
fide incurred, in connection with any
nomination or election.
For these purposes only may mon-
ey be legally spent by any candidate.
And the candidate is required to file,
not only a full account, but also a de-
tailed account, of all the money spent
by him, unless he spends less than fif-
ty dollars.
Candidates sometimes pay in ad-
vance, in a lump sum, large sums of
money for their nomination or elec-
tion expenses. This puzzles new vot-
ers. How do they know beforehand,
what their expenses will be? How is
a detailed account of such money to
be given? If there is no contest for
a nomination, why should there be
any expense?
The second class of lawful expenses
is a puzzler to new voters,—“For dis-
semination of information to the pub-
Infermation is usually disseminat-
ed, in these days, by means of the pub-
lic press, the mails, telegraph, tele-
phones, personal interviews, and pub-
' eats.”
lic addresses. All these ways are rec-
. ognized as the “lawful expenses,” and
Editor |
they are all used by candidates. But
“For dissemination of information to
the public” is put in a class all by
itself. It must refer to a different
way of “disseminating,” different
from all the usual ways, and that is
what is puzzling. How is the “infor-
mation” referred to in class two, “dis-
seminated,” and why cannot it be
“disseminated” in the ordinary ways?
It must be very important to candi-
dates, as expenses of this class some-
times constitute a large proportion of
their sworn accounts. Individuals are
sometimes paid for “disseminating in-
formation” in sums of from one dol-
lar up. What is a dollar’s worth of
“information” and how is it “dissem-
inated 7”
Men have been voting for many
years. Women have voted at but two
general elections. Perhaps some of
those who have been long time voters,
especially those who have been candi-
dates, can “disseminate information”
to the women public, on the subject of
“information to the public.”

Olewine Scholarship Awarded to Miss
Sara Rishel.
Sara Rishel, the nineteen year old
Centre Hall girl whe wo years ago
won first place and the State cham-
pionship in boys and girls cattle judg-
ing at the State College young far-
mers’ week, has made good as a stu-
dent at Penn State. She has just
been awarded the Olewine scholarship,
valued at $100, and awarded each year
by Mrs. M. Elizabeth ®Olewine, of
Bellefonte, to the Centre county girl
student at the coliege who makes the
best showing in the first half of the
Freshman year and in a competitive
examination. As a result, she has
convinced her father that she shall
continue her college career in voca-
tional home economics through to
Miss Rishel attended the Spring
Mills vocational school and while there
became a member of the calf club or-
ganized by the Farm Bureau and won
a place on the school’s dairy cattle
judging team. After winning the in-
dividual honors at the State College
contests in 1920, she accompanied the
winning team to the Eastern States
Exposition, at Springfield Mass., in
September of that year. Her team
won second honors in the contests
there. Others on the team were Sara
Goodhart and Byron Decker, of the
Spring Mills school. Decker is also a
Penn State Freshman now.
The scholarship award will make
it possible for Miss. Rishel to com-
plete her first year at College at the
.| lowest possible cost to herself, as she
earns all of her living expenses in the
Two Hundred Centre Countians Ban-
quet in Philadelphia.
Two hundred former residents of
Centre county, composing the Centre
County Association of Philadelphia,
held their eighteenth annual banquet
at the Aldine hotel in that city on
Wednesday evening. While no for-
mal speakers were announced, there
were many who rose at their places
for short talks to sing the praises of
the section of the State which all
agreed held for them “the memories
most dear.”
"Warner Underwood, president of
the association, acting as toastmaster,
reviewed the history of the associa-
tion, telling of the inspiration which
was responsible for its founding.
“The thought of association,” he
said, “was given birth by several of
the old-timers who once foregathered
at a dinner to talk over the old days
back in Centre county. Afterward
they many times recalled the evening
as being one of the most pleasant in
their memory, and it was then decided
to gather all possible in this section
who had migrated from old Centre
county and form an association. And,
friends, that is what we are here for
tonight. We are here merely to meet
again the ones who can bring back to
us each year memories of the happiest
days of our lives, those we spent in
LUCAS.—John Toner Lucas, for
many years one of the best known
residents of Moshannon, passed away
at his home in that place on Sunday,
following only a few days’ illness with
He was a son of William H. and
Margaret Bathurst Lucas and was
born at Curtin on September 9th,
1842, hence had reached the age of 79
years, 5 months and 7 days. His boy- :
hood days were spent in going to
school and assisting his father in his
work at the old Eagle iron works. In
September, 1861, he enlisted for serv-
ice in the Civil war as a private in
Company D, 45th regiment, under
Capt. Curtin. He served three years
and in that time participated in many
important battles and skirmishes,
among them being the battle of Fred-
ericksburg, Vicksburg, Jackson, Blue
Springs, the siege of Knoxville and
the battle of the Wilderness, where on
May 6th, 1864, he was wounded in
the right shoulder. He was incapaci-
tated from active service for two
months but remained with his compa-
ny. At the expiration of his term of
enlistment he returned home and
went to work at the Eagle iron works
where he remained until his marriage
to Miss Annie P. Isenberg, of Hunt-
ingdon, on June 16th, 1866, when he
went to work for the McCoy & Linn
Iron company at Milesburg. He
worked for that company until 1873
when he went to Curtin as superin-
tendent of the iron works there. In
1881 he located at Moshannon and
embarked in the milling business, lat-
er erecting a saw mill and opening a
general store. He was also postmas-
ter there for many years, though a
few years ago he retired from all ac-
tive business enterprises. Mr. Lucas
was a life-long member of the Meth-
odist church and an unswerving Dem-
ocrat. He was a member of the Belle-
fonte Lodge Royal Arcanum.
Mr. Lucas is survived by the fol-
lowing children: Edith and James, at
home; Mrs. Cronover, whose where-
abouts could not be learned; John, of
Moshannon; Mrs. Blanche Zimmer-
man, of Altoona; Albert, who has been
in the west but recently returned
home; Mrs. Roy Lucas, of Moshan-
non, and Clyde C., of Howard. He al-
so leaves one brother, Nelson A. Lu-
cas, of Washington, D. C.
Funeral services were held at his
late home at Moshannon at ten o’clock
on Wednesday morning by Rev.
Stephens, of the Methodist church, of
Snow Shoe, after which burial was
made in the Askey cemetery.
RICE.—John Gamill Rice, a well
known resident of Bellefonte, died at
his home opposite the old Phoenix
mill at four o’clock on Wednesday
morning as the result of a stroke of
paralysis. He was stricken upwards
of six years ago but recovered to the
extent that he was able to be up and
around until about a month ago when
he suffered a second stroke while at-
tending evangelistic services at the
United Evangelical church. Since
then he had been entirely helpless and
sank gradually until the end.
He was a son of Samuel and Cathe-
rine Rice and was born in Bald Eagle
valley on December 8th, 1859, hence
was 62 years, 2 months and 7 days
old. Most of his married life was
spent in Bellefonte. He was a labor-
er by occupation and until overtaken
by illness a hard working and honest
gentleman. On July 18th, 1882, he
married Miss Nora Wilson who sur-
vives with the following children:
Samuel Rice, of Elwood City; Mrs.
Lulu Gingery, of Bellefonte; Mrs.
Jennie Miller, of Niagara Falls; Har-
ry, in the United States army; Calvin,
of Bellefonte; Mrs. Elvina Brandon
and Miss Blanche, of Detroit, Mich.,
and Chester, at home. He also leaves
eight grand-children, two sisters and
two brothers, namely: Mrs. Alice
Hockenberry, of State College; Mrs.
Jacob Shirk, David and Henry Rice,
all of Bellefonte.
Funeral services will be held at his
late home at 2:30 o’clock tomorrow
(Saturday) afternoon by Rev. Reed
0. Steely, of the United Evangelical
church, burial to be made in the Sun-
nyside cemetery.

GARBRICK.—Amos Garbrick, a
life-long resident of Centre county
and a veteran of . the Civil war,
passed peacefully away at the home of
18s grandson, Edward Garbrick, at
Coleville, last Friday evening. His
death was the result of a general de-
cline. He had been quite feeble the
past two years and had not been able
to leave his bed since last July.
Mr. Garbrick was a son of George
and Anna Garbrick and was born near
Jacksonville on February 14th, 1837,
hence was within four days of being
eighty-five years old. His early life
was spent on a farm in little Nittany
valley and later up in the vicinity of
State College. It was while living at
the latter place he enlisted for service
in the Civil war on August 27th, 1862,
in Company C, of the 148th regiment.
The company was raised by Captain
Foster and with little preliminary
training it was sent to the front and
was soon in the thick of the Virginia
campaign. On May 2nd, 1863, Mr.
Garbrick was wounded at the battle of
Chanceliorsville, where the regiment’s |
losses were staggering. He was in |
the hospital for some time but
promptly upen his recovery rejoined
his command and served until the end !
of the war, being discharged on June
1st, 1865.
Returning home he engaged
farming and later located at Coleville
and established a milk route in Belle- |
fonte. He eventually disposed of his
milk route and went into the ice bus-
iness which he followed until advanc-
ing years compelled his retirement.
He was a member of Gregg Post, G.'
A. R. and the Centre county Veteran
Legion, and was always in the fore-
front of anything of interest to the
old soldiers.
His wife died many years ago but
surviving him is one daughter, Mrs.
Snyder Tate, of Coleville. Rev. Wil-
son P. Ard had charge of the funeral
services which were held at two
o'clock on Monday afternoon, at the
Garbrick home in Coleville, burial be-
ing made in the Union cemetery.

Treasury Savings Certificates Popular
The new treasury savings certifi-
cates, which were first put on sale in
the latter part of December, have
made an immediate hit, according to
George W. Norris, governor of Phil-
adelphia Federal Reserve bank.
“People who like to see their sav-
ings grow, but feel that alow rate of
interest on a small sum of money does
not amount to much, are quick to see
the advantage of investing $80 in a
security, fully protected from loss or
theft, for which Uncle Sam agrees to
give them $100 at the end of five
years,” said Mr. Norris. Reports
from all over the country are that the
sale of these certificates has exceed-
ed expectations. In this Federal Re-
serve district, with reports not entire-
ly complete, it appears that in the
month of January 1944 certificates
of the $25 denomination were sold,
3763 of the $100, 363 of the $1000, and
2674 of the $1 treasury stamps. This
represents $632,994 paid in for certifi-
cates or stamps, which will be worth
$790,574 at maturity. During the last
two weeks of December, the sales in
the district amounted to $135,600 at
maturity value, so that the total sales
in the district to January 31st exceed-
ed $926,000.
Of the above maturity value of
$926,000, Centre county investors, dur-
ing the period above set forth, invest-
ed in these treasury savings certifi-
cates to the maturity value of $24,-
This form of government security is
without question the most attractive
ever offered to the public. These se-
curities may be had at any postoffice
in Centre county or requisition for
them may be made in denominations
of $25, $100, or $1000 (maturity val-
ue) to W. Harrison Walker, assistant

He was a son of John and Anna’
Royer Homan and was born in Fergu-

ate of Rev. J. Max Kirkpatrick have |
been quite active in good work of late.
They recently presented their pastor
with $200 to help him pay for an au-
tomobile. A few members of the
Centre Hall church gave him two nice
robes and the ladies of the church
equipped his study with a desk light
and the living room and parlor of the
