Fishermen everywhere should exer-
cise unusual care in regard to fires
along the streams. Don’t go away
from your camp without being sure
that no fire has been left where it
might communicate to the forests.
——After working hard all day
every man and woman is entitled to
some relaxation and one place in
Bellefonte suitable for such a purpose
is at the Scenic watching the motion
pictures. All the vexatious problems
of the day arelost sight of in the in-
terest of following the continuity of
the scenes to a thrilling climax. If
you are not a movie fan you don’t
know what you are missing.
Spring is here without a doubt.
The Odd Fellows band was out last
Friday evening giving street concerts
in ‘various parts of the town and ‘on
Saturday the advance man for Sparks’
circus was in town and made arrange-
ments for the appearance of that show
here on Saturday, May 20th. The
next thing we know the storm doors
at the Bush house will be taken down
and thus the last reminder of winter
will have disappeared.
At a special session of court
last Thursday morning Andy Soltis
and John Frenck, two of the Snow
Shoe township men implicated in the
attempt to wreck the O. P. Morgan
mine, plead guilty to the charge and
were separately sentenced to serve
from one year and six months to two
years in the western penitentiary, be-
ing taken to that institution on Sat-
urday by sheriff Dukeman. Harry
McCullough, arrested last week for
stealing a watch from Fred Reish,
was placed on parole for two years.
Milo B. Peck, the young man
who had such a thrilling escape from
injury- and possible death on Tues-
day night when he drove his car
through the railing almost into Spring
creek, was not so fortunate on’ Wed-
nesday. He was helping to transfer a
heavy safe from the express car of
one of the morning trains to the ex-
press truck when the safe slipped and
fell the corner coming down on the
palm of his right hand cutting a deep
gash therein while the weight of the
safe also broke his arm just below the

carried exceptionally complimentary
notices of the singing of Miss Ruth
Myford in Music hall in that city.
Miss Myford sang on the occasion of
the better homes demonstration, being
the social entertainment feature of the
perfect living room designed by Ross
Crane, of the Chicago Art Institute.
She is a sister of George Myford; of
Belle Vernon, who is a student at the
Academy here and it will be recalled
that she sang with the Academy boys
at their last minstrel performance in
the opera house.
——Those conversant with the
work of the public schools of Belle-
fonte have been much impressed by
the results that have come from the
brief instruction in music that has
been given the pupils by Mrs. W. C.
Krader. Happily music appeals to
the children of the lower grades by
its charm alone, so that the little
folks learn its lessons joyfully as
their innocent child souls sing out.
They are learning it, not as a task,
but as a pleasure that will sustain and
comfort them many a time when the
sunshine of childhood is eclipsed by
the leaden skies of age. The week of
April 30th is to be “music week” in
Pennsylvania and Mrs. Krader hopes
to make ‘much 'of it.. Ministers, teach-
ers and parents are especially urged
to assist in whatever way they can in
cultivating a love for music.
Mrs. Jacob Hassell Burned to Death
at Columbus, Ohio.
Mrs. Rose Baum Hassell, wife of
Jacob Hassell, was so badly burned at
her home in Columbus, Ohio, at noon
on Wednesday, that she passed away
at eight o'clock the same evening.
According to telephone reports Mrs.
Hassell was in the act of preparing a
kettle of soup when it boiled over and
she attempted to set it off of the fire.
The kettle tipped and in her endeavors
to keep it from upsetting her clothing
caught fire. Whether she was alone
at the time is not known, but she was
terribly burned over the upper part of
her body, her face, hands and arms.
Relatives in Bellefonte were
promptly notified and Miss Freda
Baum left on the 3:10 p. m. train for
Columbus, but her sister had passed
away before she reached that city.
Mr. Hassell was in Bellefonte over
Sunday and had not yet reached home,
being somewhere in northern Penn-
Mrs. Hassell was the third child of
Abram and Mary Ansbach Baum and
was born in Bellefonte on October
17th, 1870, hence was bl years, 5
menths and 26 days old. She grew to
womanhood here and received her ed-
ucation in the Bellefonte schools,
graduating at the High school. Short-
ly after her graduation she entered
the “Watchman” office to learn type-
setting and worked here until a short
time before her marriage.
She was married to Jacob Hassell,
of Syracuse, N. Y., on March 17th,
1897, and for ten years they made
their home in Syracuse. Fifteen years
ago they moved to Columbus, Ohio,
and that city has been their home ever
since. Mrs. Hassell is survived by her
husband, two daughters and a son,
namely: Henrietta, a graduate of the
Ohio State College and now engaged’
in social settlement work in Chicago,
and who reached home ten minutes
after her mother had passed away.
Dorothy, a Senior at the Ohio State
College, and David a Senior in the
Columbus High school. She was one
of a family of thirteen children and
hers, is only the second death in the
family circle, the surviving brothers
and- sisters being as follows: Lena,
now Mrs. Monash, of New York; Fan-
nie;;mow Mrs. Metz, of Princeton, In-
diana; Hilda, now Mrs. Riesman, also
of Princeton; Jacob Baum, of Rock-
port, Ind.; Israel, of Kansas City;
Morris, of State College; Alfred, Sim-
eon, Mrs. William Katz and Miss
Freda, of Bellefonte, and Harry, of
At her own request the remains will
be brought to Bellefonte for inter-
ment. The body will probably arrive
today and the funeral take place ‘on
David O. Etters Re-elected County
Superintendent for Fifth Term.
Ninety-two school directors in Cen-
tre county out of a total of one hun-
dred and forty-seven who attended the
quadrennial convention held in Belle-
fonte on Tuesday morning voted for
David O. Etters, of State College, thus
paying him the compliment of being
elected for the fifth consecutive term
in that office.
The convention was called at 10:45
when county superintendent Etters
read those sections of the school code
which provided for the election of
county superintendents. He then an-
nounced the convention open for or-
ganization and J. Will Mayes, of
Howard, was elected president; Chas.
F. Cook, of Bellefonte, secretary; L.
Y. Green, of Worth township, and L.
W. Stover, of Millheim, tellers. Im-
mediately on taking the chair Mr.
Mayes announced the convention open
for the nomination for candidates for
county superintendent. Charles G.
Avery, of Philipsburg, arose and in a
modest but complimentary speech
placed in nomination the name of
Chester H. Barnes, of Bellefonte, but
who the past two or three years has
been teaching at Norristown. Mr.
Barnes’ nomination was seconded by
Murs. M. R. Brouse, of Bellefonte.
M. S. McDowell, of State College,
who officiated in a like capacity four
years ago, placed in nomination the
name of David O. Etters, of State Col-
lege, and the same was seconded by
Dr. M. J. Locke, of Bellefonte. The
nominations then closed and on roll
call 92 directors voted for Mr. Etters
and 55 for Mr. Barnes. Mr. Etters
was consequently declared elected, the
only man in the history of Centre
county to be elected for the fifth con-
secutive term as county superintend-
Trout Fishing Season Will Open
Trout fishing season will open in
Pennsylvania tcmorrow and thousands
of men and boys, and a sprinkling of
women, too, will hie to their favorite
stream with the first break of day to
try their luck at catching the speckled
beauties. Centre county fishermen
will naturally be out in full force.
Spring creek and Logan’s branch will
likely, as usual, be thronged with en-
thusiastic disciples of Izaak Walton,
while many will journey to Fishing
creek and some to the mountain
streams. The water in all the streams
is if anything above normal but not
too high and about right for either
bait or fly. While last winter was
cold, with lots of snow and hard freez-
ing the streams were well filled at all
times so that the trout had ample pro-
tection. “The natural conclusion is
that there are plenty of trout in the
streams if the fishermen are able to
catch them.

Boy Scout News.
At last Friday evening’s meeting of
Troop No. 1, Boy Scouts of America,
Dr. David Dale gave his first talk on
first aid, which was listened to with
close attention by every scout. Charles
Bullock was elected troop treasurer.
Assistant scoutmaster Malin gave in-
structions for a hike which took place
on Saturday afternoon. The troop
left Bellefonte at one o’clock and went
out the Jacksonville road to the stone
quarries, then up along the mountain.
A troop conclave was held after the
regular meeting Friday evening. The
conclave is composed of the scoutmas-
ter and his assistants, the scribe, the
treasurer, the patrol leaders and their
assistants. Owing to today being
Good Friday, no meeting will be held
this evening.

The spring session of the Hunting-
don Presbytery was held in Philipsburg

ial sermon was preached by the retir-
ing moderator, Rev. David S. Curry,
of Mount Union, after which Rev.
Charles R. Scaife, of Tyrone, was

ders—J. F. Williams, of South Altoo-
na; J. M. Barton, of East Waterford,

serving Presbyterian day at Lake-
mont park, Altoona, was accepted.
An adjourned meeting of the Pres-
bytery will be held in Huntingdon on
June 12th. The selection of a place

was left to the stated clerk. .
Fall of Aeroplane.
Captain Ronald Armundsen, the in-
trepid arctic explorer, had a narrow
escape from death on Monday when
the monoplane in which he was flying
from New York to Seattle was forced
down from a height of six thousand
feet at Miola, near Clarion, Pa., short-
ly after noon on Monday. The ship,
with H. T. (Slim) Lewis as pilot, and
carrying Capt. Amundson, H. W.
Bade, E. Buhl and J. Ondell, left New
York at eight o’clock Monday morn-
ing. Heavy winds were encountered
and it was just 11:50 o’clock when
they passed over Bellefonte, flying at
an altitude of from five to six thous-
and feet.
In the neighborhood of Clarion the
motor began to overheat and pilot
Lewis started to descend, volplaning
most of the way down. Unfortunate-
ly he was compelled to land on rough
ground and the ship nosed over.
Aside from a few scratches and bruis-
es none of the occupants were serious-
ly injured. Capt. Amundsen went by
rail to Cleveland, the two passengers
returned to New York while pilot
Lewis and the mechanician remained
at Clarion to repair the ship.
Captain Amundsen is in this coun-
try investigating aeroplanes with the
intention of trying to fly to the North
Pole. His trip west was being made
to test the durability of the Larsen
monoplane, an all metal ship.

Automobile Assembling Plant Propo-
sition Turned Down.
The proposition of Mr. Crothers, of
Philadelphia, to move his automobile
(The Champion) assembling plant
from Gloucester, N. J., to the old Ti-
tan Metal plant near Milesburg did
not appeal to the business acumen of
the members of the Bellefonte Busi-
ness Men’s Association and the Board
of Trade as presented to them at a
joint meeting held last Wednesday
evening. The promoter asked fifteen
thousand dollars to pay the expense
of moving the plant and it was furth-
er intimated that local people would
then be required to take stock in the
concern. The proposition did not ap-
peal to Bellefonte business men and
they voted to notify the promoters of
the enterprise that the matter would
not be considered at this time.
The question of putting up street
signs was discussed and a committee
was appointed to take the matter up
with the borough council.
The association decided to hold
their annual picnic this year at Hecla
Park the third Thursday in August,
and a committee was appointed to
make all arrangements.
The association considered the ques-
tion of weekly band concerts this year
and decided to arrange for same if the
necessary fund can be raised by sub-
scription, as last year. Just where
the concerts will be held is a matter
as yet undecided. Owing to the pro-
test made by the G. A. R. last year
the County Commissioners have re-
fused the request to erect the band
stand within the circle of the soldiers’
monument, as last year, and among
other places considered are the High
school grounds.
Announcement was made that W.
O. Byers, of the State Chamber of
Commerce, expects to be in Belle-
fonte soon and will address the asso-
ciation. Definite announcement of his
visit will be made in due time.
Young Autoist Narrowly Escaped
Fall Into Spring Creek.
Milo B. Peck, driver for the Amer-
ican Express company in Bellefonte,
came within an ace of driving his au-
to over the high wall into Spring
creek, close to the High street bridge,
on Tuesday evening. The young man
bought a second hand Ford a few days
ago and had driven it only once or
twice. Tuesday evening about eight
o’clock he decided to take a little spin
and getting into the car at the Beatty
garage drove out onto High street
and across the bridge. Reaching the
east side of the bridge he made a
short turn to go out south Water street
and the inference is that he turned too
short and the steering apparatus
buckled. In any event he ran onto
the curb and knocked out two panels
of the iron railing along the. pave-
ment and would likely have gone into
the creek if the car had not brought
up. against the heavy guy wire run-
ning from one of the heavy iron sup-
ports of the pavement to the smoke
stack of the Beatty garage.
When the machine stopped Peck
lost little time in getting out and on-
to solid ground. A crowd of men
were soon on the scene and the front
end of the car was lifted up and the
machine backed onto the street. It
was very little damaged. Borough
manager J. D. Seibert roped the walk
where the railing was knocked out and
put up a danger signal, and on Wed-
nesday the railing was replaced.
Academy Declammatory Contest.
The annual declammatory contest
for the prizes offered by William S.
Furst, Esq., of Philadelphia, was held
at the Bellefonte Academy last F'ri-
day afternoon. The contestants and
their subjects were as follows:
Thomas Quinn, Pittsburgh, “Citi-
LeRoy Kelley, Binghamton, N. Y.,
“The Cruelty of Legree.”
Elwood Kalbach, New York city,
“Gunga Din.” x
Joseph Silensky, Madeira, “Rever-
ence for the Flag.”
Nicholas Raschella, Clarksburg, W.
Va., “Commerce.”
William McCabe, Easton, “The Un
ion Soldier.” * :
Paul Van Hee, Detroit, Mich., “The
World of Whispering Gallery.”
All the contestants acquitted them-
selves very creditably and the judges,
Rev. David R. Evans, Dr. Frank P.
Bible, and Miss Ollie B. Mitchell,
awarded first prize to Paul Van Hee
and divided the second prize between
Thomas Quinn and Joseph Silensky.

Frank Wetzler and His Ban
* Our memory fails to record the time
, when music was not coming out of
| Milesburg. We go back to the period
. when the elder Bierlys were stellar in-
strumentalists in the old Bellefonte
orchestra composed of such leading
citizens and music lovers as Ivan
Blanchard Esq., F. Potts Green, Dr.
Hibler and Miss Susan Ohnmacht,
when there was no commercialism, all
love,in music. Then the Milesburg
band was young. Frank Wetzler was
a boy and ’Squire Bierly awakened the
souls of Frank and his companions
and they too sought expression in mu-
Ever since those days Milesburg
has had a band and a band that Belle-
fonte would have been proud of and,
in truth, has often claimed as one of
its creditable organizations. Almost
| to Frank Wetzler, alone, is the credit
i due for the boys band and the girls
| band. While we have all, on occasion,
' had reason to feel grateful to him for
‘our pleasure only those whom he has
. persuaded to take up an instrument
‘ know really what the accomplishment
his unselfish devotion gave them
i means.
Milesburg is just a village. It has
' little wealth and few sources from
which to draw funds for the support
of its band. The boys need uniforms
now. We should have helped them get
them long ago. In the fall and winter
of 1917 and 1918, when the flower of
Centre county’s young manhood was
marching to entrain for service to our
country always Frank Wetzler had
some band to lead the contingent pa-
rade. They were sad occasions ‘tis
true, but how much sadder had it not
been for the diverting music of the
boys and girls of Milesburg.
We owe Frank Wetzler something.
We owe those boys something. Let
us pay part of the debt by helping to
buy them uniforms. If you are not
approached by any of the solicitors
mail a check direct to Mr. Wetzler, to
Milesburg, Pa.
Corl—Krebs.—Clayton L. Corl and
Miss Lucy A. Krebs, both of Pine
Grove Mills, were married at the
Lutheran parsonage in Bellefonte on
Thursday afternoon of last week, by
the pastor, Rev. Wilson P. Ard. The
bride is a daughter of Mrs. Ada Krebs
and has been one of Ferguson town-
ship’s successful school teachers. The
bridegroom is a son of Mr. and Mrs.
W. K. Corl, and a veteran of the world
war, having served overseas. He is a
practical farmer and a mechanical en-
gineer. The young couple returned to
Pine Grove Mills the same evening
and were given a rousing serenade by
the calithumpians. For the present
they will make their home with the
bride’s mother.

afternoon wedding at the Lutheran
parsonage was that of Paul Straus-
