who got change for a twenty dollar
bill at the Bellefonte Trust company
for E. P. Blair & Son, several weeks
ago, then forgot to take back the
change, is now languishing in the
Centre county jail ruminating upon
his shortcomings. As stated in this
paper at the time Baney ‘left Belle-
fonte and went to Buffalo, N. Y., and
while a warrant was sworn out for his
arrest officers of the law decided that
it was not worthwhile going to the
expense of a trip to Buffalo for Baney,
as they felt sure he would come back
shortly. And he did. He returned to
Bellefonte last Thursday night and
Friday morning he was taken into
custody and landed in jail. So far the
only money recovered by F. P. Blair &
Son are the five dollars gotten from
Isaac Baney which Charles had paid
him for a horse. Baney plead guilty
in open court on Tuesday to appro-
priating the money to his own use and
was sentenced to the Huntingdon re-
ASSOCIATED BUSINESS MEN'S
Members Eat Turkey and Hear Good |
Speeches at Bush House Last
A brief item in the “Watchman”
last week predicted that the Asso-
ciated Business Men of Bellefonte
would have a good time at their sec-
ond annual banquet held at the Bush
house last Thursday night, and in this
case, at least, we proved a good
prophet. But a large part of the
credit is due Mine Host Lewis Dag-
gett for the comfortable arrange-
ments made, the beautiful and patriot-
ic decorations and the elaborate menu.
As the latter is always the main fea-
ture at any banquet it is entitled to
just recognition so we herewith give
it in full:
Chicken Consomme a la Royal
Chilled, Celery Hearts Queen Olives
Baked Lake Erie Pike, Parsley Sauce
Business Men’s Punch
Roast Young Turkey, with Filling
Whipped Potatoes Creamed Onions
Cabbage Salad, French Dressing
Maple Walnut Ice Cream
Fancy Assorted Cakes After Dinner Mints
Cigars and Cigarettes
About two hundred invitations had
been sent out and in the neighbor-
hood of one hundred and forty men re-
sponded. Wion’s orchestra furnished
the music and the dining room pre-
sented an inspiring sight as the guests
marched in at 8:30 o’clock. Rev. Dr.
Schmidt was present and invoked ‘the
divine blessing and then everybody
fell to and discussed the menu given
above. When the tables were finally
cleared and cigars and cigarettes
lighted H. C. Yeager, president of the
association, made a brief talk, direct-
ed more to outsiders than to members,
in which he told what had been ac-
complished for Bellefonte in a busi-
ness way since the organization of the
association and that the members
hoped to continue the good work. He
then introduced as the main speaker
of the evening Mr. George E. Foss,
secretary of the State Chamber of
Mr. Foss gave a very interesting
talk on the upbuilding of community
work being done by the various Cham-
bers of Commerce throughout the
State, and outlined the many possi-
bilities open to a good, live organiza-
tion of business men in any communi-
ty. He urged hearty co-operation up-
on the part of all the citizens of the
Mr. Foss was followed by W. C.
Byers, chief of the State Bureau of
Agriculture, who captured the atten-
tion of his audience by repeating sev-
eral clever little stories then told of
how Chambers of Commerce in var-
ious towns had succeeded in interest-
ing the farmers and getting them into
the association with the result that a
better and more reciprocal feeling was
engendered which proved of benefit
to all. Mr. Byers offered to come to
Bellefonte some time in April to ex-
plain the matter more in detail, and
his offer was promptly accepted.
Advance notice of the date of his vis-
it will be given in due time.
Rev. M. DePui Maynard was called
upon and spoke briefly of the good
work the business men have done and
urged a more hearty co-operation in
the future on the part of every busi-
George T. Bush, chairman of the
publicity committee, cited the fact
that “in union there is strength” and
urged those who are not now members
of the association to join and lend
their aid to the upbuilding of Belle-
fonte and community. He expressed
the hope that the banquet would be
followed by monthly noon luncheons
of an informal character, where plans
and purposes can be discussed. Mr.
Bush brought up the fact that Belle-
fonte is sadly in need of a recreational
center and suggested the island in
Spring creek as a most suitable place
if it could be secured and fixed up for
Judge Quigley stated that his opin-
ion of the Associated Business Men
had been entirely revised. That he at
first was under the impression that
they had organized primarily for price
control but having seen the material
good they have done for the town and
their aims for the future he thought
that every man in Bellefonte, business
or professional, should belong, and he
promptly filed his application for
membership. Other brief talks were
made by Father Downes, James R.
Hughes, Col. W. Fred Reynolds and
G. Oscar Gray. Everybody present
voted the banquet a great success and
at midnight the gathering broke up
with the singing of “The Star Span-
Apropos of the banquet it might be
stated that one of the results of the
gathering was the filing of about twen-
ty-five applications for membership,
which will give the Associated Busi-
ness Men a membership of eighty or
more. While this number is fairly
representative of the business inter-
ests of Bellefonte the association is
anxious to enlist the co-operation of
every man who has the interests of
the town at heart. Hence, if you are
not now a member, there will never
be a better time than right now to be-

Altoona Man Held for
At a hearing before justice of the’
peace S. Kline Woodring, last Thurs-
day afternoon, Walter B. Gray, of Al-
toona, was held in six hundred dollars
bail for trial at the May term of Cen-
tre county court on the charge of
shooting Willis D. Woodring, of Port
Matilda, while the two men were
hunting small game in Halfmoon
township on November 3rd. Wood-
ring was the victim of a load of fine
shot fired by Gray and while his inju-
ries were not serious they were pain-
ful. Thomas Mosier, game protector,
made the information on which Gray
was arrested, in accordance with an
Act of Assembly approved May 22nd,
1921. Under the act, if found guilty,
Gray could lose his hunting privileges
for a period of five years and would
also be subject to a fine and impris-
onment, at the discretion of the court.
This will be the first case of the kind
brought in Centre county and the out-
come will be of interest to hunters

torical rivalry among the school chil-
dren of Bellefonte and vicinity Wash-
ington Camp No. 887, P. O. S. of A,,
of Bellefonte, recently offered prizes

Near East Relief Contributions.
The committee for Near East Relief
is unable this week to give a definite
statement of the amount contributed.
Philipsburg and State College, begin-
ning with their field days, February
12th and February 19th, respectively,
are well on the way to the completion
of their quotas. Reports from other
communities, including Bellefonte, are
coming in more slowly. At least it
can be said that more than one-half of
the 146 children “looking to Centre
county” are by this time assured
shelte” in an orphanage for another
Every one is urged to contribute as
generously as possible, either through
an organization or individually, to the
support of these children. Lieut.
Connes, official interpreter of the New
York Supreme court, formerly a mem-
ber of the Russian commission of the
American Red Cross, said in the
court house February 18th, “It would
be more cruel for America to cease
her aid to Armenia, and other strick-
en regions of the Near East now,
than it would have been to refuse to
begin these activities.”
Former Centre Countian Killed on the
A telephone message from Blooms-
burg on Wednesday morning an-
nounced the sad fact that Luther
Lansberry, a former resident of
Spring township, this county, had been
instantly killed that morning when a
truck loaded with lumber, which he
was driving was struck by a train on
a railroad crossing.
Mr. Lansbherry was a native of
Clearfield county and was not quite
fifty years old. About twenty years
ago he came to Centre county and en-
gaged in farming in Spring township,
later starting a milk route in Belle-
fonte which he conducted a number of
years. Three years ago last fall he
sold out and going to Columbia coun-
ty purchased a farm near the once fa-
mous ostrich farm close to Blooms-
burg. Mr. Lansberry was in Belle-
fonte early in the winter and was en-
thusiastic over his new home and his
success in that place.
He was married to Miss Emma
Gross who survives with the following
children: Dayton, who is married and
lives near Bloomsburg; Mrs. Snell, of
Clearfield; Mrs. Rishel, of Wilkes-
Barre; William, Lawrence, Thomas
and Mary, at home. He also leaves
his parents and several sisters. Ar-
rangements for the funeral are mot
known at this writing.

The association will take the place of
the old Bellefonte Motor club, and its
object is the legitimate protection of

The decision to hold a big auto
show in the armory the second week
in March is evidence that the new as-
sociation is to become active right at
the start of its existence. The show
held in Bellefonte a year ago drew a
large crowd and resulted in quite a
number of sales, and there is every
reason to believe that a show this year
will also prove beneficial. Manufac-
turers, agencies and dealers all over
the country will be invited to place
exhibits and this will enable all those
contemplating the purchase of cars to
examine the different makes and form
their own judgment of the car they
prefer. Remember the date of the
show, March 14th to 18th, and make
it a point to be there.
