Go to the poverty social to be
held in the armory this (Friday) even-
ing by the Brooks-Doll Post of the
American Legion. Good music, danc-

ete. It will be an evening of unalloy-

matter of news that the stopping or

the street will not be permitted under
any circumstances; and just at that
time the writer saw three cars park-

and they remained there half an hour
or longer.

the Legion boys have arranged a pro-
gram of entertainment that will

——Headmaster James R. Hughes,
of the Bellefonte Academy, announces
that in the future he will be compel-
led to make a charge of ten dollars for
the use of Hughes field for all paid

necessary owing to the high cost of
upkeep, which includes grand stand,
bleechers and high board fence.

ever since reaching the Shore.

——The Bellefonte Academy athlet-

Important Business Transacted by
Borough Council.
W. C. Coxey appeared before. bor-
“ough council on Monday evening with
a petition signed by residents of east
Bishop street asking that the exten-
sion of east Logan street be opened to
traffic. The petition stated that over
thirty years ago, when that part of
the town was laid out in lots, a street
forty feet in width was provided for;
that the same had been open to traffic
continuously until within the past
year when it was partially closed by
Harry Keeler after purchasing a lot
in that section. The matter was re-
ferred to the Street committee ‘and
borough solicitor to ascertain the bor-
ough’s rights in said street.
Secretary Kelly presented the bond
of borough treasurer Edward M. Geh-
ret in the sum of $16,000 and that of
borough solicitor N. B. Spangler in
the sum of $500, both of which were
The Street committee presented the
borough manager’s report which in-
cluded the collection of $16.00 for
work done. The committee also re-
ported that they had interviewed the
County Commissioners relative to re-
pairing the Lamb street bridge and
they agreed to appropriate $500 to-
ward the expense. The committee
also presented a bid from H. S. Moore
who agrees to put the steel beams nec-
essary to strengthen the bridge in
place and paint same for the sum of
$570. The total cost for repairing the
bridge will be about $1,100, and when
the work is completed it will be capa-
ble of carrying a load of fifteen tons.
Council authorized the committee to
proceed with the work.
The Water committee reported the
collection of $39.50 cx the 1920 water
duplicate. At the last meeting of
council the committee suggested the
installation of a new turbine wheel at
the Phoenix mill pumping station as a
matter of economy, and were instruct-
ed to ascertain figures and present the
same to council for consideration. In
connection therewith Mr. Cunningham
stated that according to actual figures
the present pump at the Phoenix sta-
tion pumps 864,000 gallons of water
in a continuous run of twenty-four
hours; the electric pump will throw
864,000 gallons in a continuous run of
sixteen hours, while the Aldrich pump
at the old pumping station throws
185,000 gallons in a continuous run of
twenty-four hours, making a total of
1,913,000 gallons, which is about the
daily consumption in Bellefonte. With
a new turbine wheel at the Phoenix
station the capacity of the pump there
will be increased to 1,400,000 gallons,.
and adding to this amount the water
thrown by the Aldrich pump would
leave only about 350,000 gallons to be
pumped daily by the electric pump, or
less than half the amount now drawn
from that source. The monthly bills
for the electric pump run over four
hundred dollars and by the reduction
in time as above noted these bills
would be cut down at least one-half,
which would mean a saving of over
two thousand dollars a year. As to
the wheel and new fixtures needed will
cost close to $700, while the committee
estimated the total cost of installation
at approximately $1,000. A motion
was passed authorizing the committee
to purchase the new wheel and have
it installed.
The Finance committee asked for
the renewal of notes for $500, $2,000,
$1,200, $1,800, $1,500, $2,500, $5,500
and $7,000, a total of $22,000, which
was authorized.
President Walker called attention
to the fact that the boys in the man-
ual training department at the Belle-
fonte High school, under the direction
of Prof. Menold, had made a number
of street markers and he instructed
the Street committee to take a look at
the markers and make a survey of the
town to see if they can be used to ad-
Borough manager J..D. Seibert re-
ported that the fire alarm motor had
been sent to the Scranton Electric
company for examination as to wheth-
er it can be repaired but so far no
word has been received from the com-
President Walker reappointed as
members of the Bellefonte board of
health Col. W. Fred Reynolds, whose
term will expire in 1924; James C.
Furst Esq., whose term will run to
1925; Dr. M. J. Locke, 1926; John
Blanchard Esq., 1927, while Dr. David
Dale’s term will end in 1923. The ap-
pointments were approved by council.
Mr. Brouse inquired as to the le-
gality of parking cars on south Water
street, especially adjacent to the Bush
Arcade, and this promoted a general
discussion of the traffic ordinance, the
rights of automobilists, ete. Finally
the president referred the entire mat-
ter to the Fire and Police committee
and the borough solicitor to solve all
questions and get things in shape so
that the ordinance can be enforced.
It might be stated that the attitude
of council is not to be understood as
one of hostility to owners and drivers
of motor cars. But so many drivers
of cars show such utter disregard of
even the most simple road rules in
driving on the streets of Bellefonte
that it is time some action is taken
for the protection of pedestrians as
well as automobilists themselves.
Just what plans will be worked out re-
mains to be seen, but if all drivers of
cars observe general road rules they
will find little to complain about. One
thing, especially, which drivers should
not do is to drive on the wrong side of
the street. Some drivers in Bellefonte
the cost of installation of a new wheel, :
not only disregard this rule but stop
their car on the wrong side of the
street then become offended when told
about it. ; i -
Bills to the amount of $1342.53
were approved and council adjourned.

——Rev. and Mrs. Alexander Scott
will be honor guests at a dinner given
tonight by Mrs. Scott’s bible class, at
the Nittany Country club, in appre-
ciation of the splendid service render-
ed them and the young people of the
church. Many requests for places
from members of the other church or-
ganizations have been refused, owing
to the size of the class, which in itself
has forty members: The party will be
guests of M. R. Johnson on the drive
to and from the club house. Mr. and
Mrs. Scott’s popularity among the
younger element, has done much for
the church during Rev. Scott’s pas-
torate in Bellefonte.
