——The old fashioned grippe has
laid siege to Bellefonte and many per-

Of course there have been no deaths

ty people. The Pennsylvania Match
company and the shirt factory also
were short of help. A number of stu-

Tag System to be Adopted to Punish
Wilfull Violators of the Au-
tomobile Laws.
Burges W. Harrison Walker was
present at the regular meeting of bor-
ough council on Monday evening and
reported that he had sworn into office
chief fire marshal Robert Kline as
well as John J. Bower, chief of the
Logan fire company, and Charles An-
‘derson, chief of the Undines. The
burgess stated that so far only four
or five jitney operators and draymen
in Bellefonte had lifted their borough
license, according to the ordinance, all
the others simply ignoring the matter,
and he requested authority to consult
with the borough solicitor and take ac-
tion compelling the lifting of the li-
censes. Council empowered him to go
Burgess Walker also complained of
the utter disregard of the traffic or-
dinance on the part of some drivers
of automobiles, some of the persistent
offenders being drivers of delivery
cars, and stated that some means
would have to be taken to en-
force the ordinance. He called atten-
tion to the danger to children of fast
driving past the school grounds and
also cited the fact that automobilists
pay no attention to the requirement
not to park cars at fireplugs or in
front of the fire houses. The burgess
suggested making extra policemen of
the fire patrol of the Logan and Un-
dine companies or else calling into
service a plain clothes man. Presi-
dent Walker stated that council could
not make special policemen of the fire
patrol without putting them on the
pay roll, and Mr. Cunningham called
the burgess’ attention to the fact that
at his request two years ago council
paid out over a hundred dollars for a
plain clothes man and notwithstand-
ing the fact that he had a book full of
names of traffic law violators not a
single individual was called to account
and fired. Mr. Cunningham suggest-
ed the introduction of the tag system,
whereby the police and members of
the Fire and Police committee are fur-
nished with tags similar to baggage
checks used by the railroads and when
a car is discovered parked contrary to
the provisions of the traffic ordinance
put a tag on the steering wheel noti-
fying the owner to appear before the
burgess. The number of the car is
placed on the other end of the tag
which is turned in to the burgess. It
was finally decided to try out the tag
system, so all drivers should take due!
Mr. Waite asked if there is any or-
dinance permitting boys to ride bicy-
eral instancesiwhere it was not only a
nuisance but’ ‘dangerous to pedes-|
trians. He was informed that there |
is an ordinance prohibiting it and |
the Fire and Police committee were |
instructed to have the police enforce !
the ordinance.
The Water committee reported the !
collection of $49.50 on the 1920 water |
duplicate by the borough manager. |
Mr. Cunningham, chairman of the!
committee, stated that the reservoir |

Judge Bell sentenced William Fry-
berger and Morgan Shope, two Phil-
ipsburgers implicated in the Karthaus

dollar, costs of prosecution and under-
go imprisonment in the Clearfield
county jail for a period of one year.

The “Watchman” has received from
Congressman Evan J. Jones a large
quantity of garden seeds and a limit-
ed number of flower seeds for free dis-
tribution among its readers. The seeds

Farmers Asked to Co-operate,

mers whose common shipping station

iary to the Centre County Farmer's

Directors Elected for First National
Bank of Centre Hall.
A meeting of the stockholders of
the proposed First National Bank of
Centre Hall was held in the store room
of Frank V. Goodhart, at that place,
on Monday morning. Daniel Daup pre-
sided and the following men were
chosen as the board of directors:
Daniel Daup, Frank V. Goodhart,
Robert M. Smith, Thomas Delaney,
Edward Durst, J. Cloyd Brooks, James
L. Decker and Arthur E. Kerlin, all
of Centre Hall; L. Frank Mayes, of
Lemont; Frank E. Wieland, of Linden
Hall;-and Charles S. Stoner, of Tus-

Parent Teachers’ Meeting.

Parent Teachers’ association will be
is badly in need of repairs. That
much of the cement has scaled off of
the inside of the wall which eventual-
‘held at the public school building, Al-
i legheny and Linn streets, next Mon-
! 0 day evening, March 18th, at eight
ly will result in leakage. He also! clock. Among other things there
stated that some ten or twelve resi- | wil] be a very instructive talk by pro-
dents out near the Jewish cemetery | fossor N D. Hubbell, of The Penn-
would like to have the borough water. |
That they will lay the pipe and make
all connections without a cent of ex-
pense to the borough and then pay the
regular yearly rate charged users out-
side the borough limits. Both the
above were referred to the Water
committee and borough manager with
power. Report was also made that
residents of Coleville would like the
borough water and will bear all the
expense of laying the pipe, etc., and
that the people on Halfmoon hill also
want the water. These requests were
referred ack to the Water committee
for further investigation.
Mr. Cunningham further reported
that the borough manager and him-
self had been investigating the water
pumping system at the Phoenix mill
station and found it very inefficient,
which accounts for the heavy demand
on the electric pump. He stated that
a modern wheel could be installed
which would pump 270,000 more gal-
lons in twenty hours than the pres-
ent pump is doing and he felt certain
that such a wheel would pay for it-
self in less than a year in the reduc-
tion of the bills for the electric pump.
The committee was instructed to as-
certain the cost of such a wheel and
all data in connection therewith and
report at next meeting.
The Finance committee presented
the borough treasurer’s request for
the renewal of notes for $3,000, $2,-
000, $1,000, $1,000, $18,000, $7,000,
$2,000 and $2,000, a total of $36,000,
which was authorized.
Borough manager Seibert announe-:
ed that the motor on the fire alarm
is burned out. The motor can proba-
bly be rewound and repaired for ap-
proximately $75.00, while a new mo-!
tor will cost $125.00. The matter was
referred to the Fire and Police com-
mittee with instructions to ascertain
if a brake can be put on the motor so
as to enable the blowing of signals,
and report at next meeting.
Bills to the amount of $2632.35
were approved and council adjourned.

Bryan to Talk on Politics.
The fascinating game of politics,
which he has played with perhaps
more variation than any other living
American, will be the subject of the
talk to be given by William Jennings
Bryan in the auditorium at State Col-
lege next Wednesday night, March
15th. No other of the many subjects
Mr. Bryan speaks upon would be more
interesting to a Centre county audi-
ence than this, in the opinion of many
who plan to hear him. He will ap-
pear at State College under the au-
spices of the Phi Kappa Phi honorary
society, the sale of tickets being in
charge of professor I. L. Foster, at
the College.
Indications are that many people
from Bellefonte, Centre Hall, Mill-
heim and Philipsburg, as well as the
outlying districts, will attend the lec-
ture, for it is not often that the op-
portunity to hear the silver tongued
orator is presented in this section.
The lecture will start at 8 o’clock in
the evening and be over in time for
motor trips home the same evening.
