——Easter Sunday was ushered in
with quite a heavy frost, and in some
portions of the county the thermome-
tor was down to 28 degrees above ze-
ro, but all kinds of fruit is so back-
ward that it is not believed any dam-
age was done.
Dr. LeRoy Locke, of Fleming,
was last Friday appointed a first lieu-
tenant in the medical department of
the National Guard and assigned to the
Fifty-second machine gun squadron.

——The blossoming fruit trees are
a good sight these days and another
good sight are the motion pictures at,
the Scenic in the evening. Two hours
of good entertainment at a minimum
of cost. Get the movie habit and see
all the good ones, as manager T. Clay-
ton Brown has some high-class attrac-
tions for exhibition in the near future.
Don’t fail to see them.
——Yesterday Geo. W. Rumberger,
of Unionville, celebrated the eigthy-
fifth anniversary of his birth. Only
a few days ago we noticed him on the
streets of Bellefonte and wondered
why more of us don’t use his receipt
for keeping young. Always he has
been optimistic, living in the sunshine
while others imagine themselves en-
shrouded in gloom. As a parent, as a
citizen, as a public official and as a
pedagogue-and ginger of popular bal-
lads of half a century ago his eighty-
five years have been indeed worth
Monday evening’s meeting of borough
council. There were no verbal nor
written communications. :
The Street committee presented the
report of the borough manager which
included the collection of $126.55 on
the Pine street paving.
The Water committee reported the
collection of $40.00 on the 1920 water
, duplicate.
The Fire and Police committee pre-
sented the burgess’ check for $96.75
for fines and licenses, principally the
latter. The committee also stated
that some five or more draymen have
not as yet paid a license, but are
ready and willing to do so, providing
| they are furnished with a license tag
to show that their license for the year
has been paid. So far this year no li-
cense tags have been furnished by the
burgess and the draymen insist that
it is only fair to them that they be
paid. The absence of a tag will also
show who has not paid. The matter
was referred to the committee to in-
quire as to the cost of tags, ete.
Mr. Flack, of the Fire and Police
quest from policeman H. E. Yerger
for a three month’s vacation, which
was granted, and upon recommenda-
tion of the committee George Glenn
was elected by council to act as regu-
lar policeman during Mr. Yerger’s
Mr. Emerick, of the Special commit-
tee, submitted a supplemental propo-
sition by the Krader Motor company
in which they stipulated that if coun-
cil will grant their application for a
permit to erect a garage on the How-
ard street portion of their property,
they will make the front of it brick
and the end and rear of heavy tim-
bers with iron or steel sheathing and
with iron roof. Mr. Emerick stated
that the committee had held a meet-
ing on Monday evening of last week to
consider the application but the bor-
ogh solicitor was unable to be pres-
ent and advise them as to the legal
side of the question, hence they were
unable to make a recommendation.
He intimated, however, that some
members of the committee were in fa-
vor of granting the application. Mr.
Cunningham stated that while he was
not opposed to the erection of a ga-
rage at that place he did contend if
the borough ordinance creating a fire
zone was any good that council should
not allow the erection of anything but
a fireproof building. Mr. Bower, rep-
resenting the Krader Motor company,
called the attention of council to the
fact that the word “fireproof” does
not appear in the ordinance referred
to, the same providing that buildings
of “wood or frame construction” shall
not be erected within the fire zone.
T. R. Hamilton was present and again
interposed objections to the erection
of any building that is not fireproof.
Inasmuch as there seemed to be a di-
vision of sentiment on the question of
granting the application president
Walker referred the matter back to
the Special committee with a request
that they be in shape to make a rec-
ommendation at the next meeting of
borough council.
A communication was received
from the American Legion requesting
council to pass a resolution adopting
daylight saving. The communication
stated that the Legion has in course
of organization a baseball team and
daylight saving will enable them to
schedule all games in the evening.
The matter was referred to the Spe-
cial committee without comment.
The Fire and Police committee rec-
ommended that four parking signs be
erected on south Water street limit-
ing the parking of cars anywhere on
that street to five minute periods, and
the same was approved by council.
Bills to the amount of $994.13 were
approved for payment, after which
council adjourned.
Take Over Building for New Bank at
Centre Hall.
At a meeting of the stockholders of
the proposed First National bank of
Centre Hall, held in that place on
Tuesday evening, the papers were
finally executed for the taking over of
the Centre Reporter building as the
location for the new bank. The con-
sideration was $12,000. The bank will
be located in that portion of the build-
ing heretofore occupied by the late
owner, S. W. Smith, as a residence, and
in the remodeling arrangements an
apartment will be made above the
bank which for the present will be oc-
cupied by Mr. and Mrs. Smith. It is
the intention of the promoters of the
bank to begin work as soon as possi-
ble on remodeling the building into
an up-to-date banking room. A new
burglar proof vault will be construct-
ed and a complete banking equipment
installed. @H. Leigh Ebright, of
Thompsontown, has been secured as
cashier for the new bank.
The taking over of the Reporter
building does not include the purchase
of the paper, at least for the present,
and it will continue to run under the
old management.

Notwithstanding the fact that
several weeks everything is very qui-
et and orderly in the Snow Shoe re-
gion, according to reports from that
section. In fact, better order is now
being observed than before the strike
went into effect. Large supplies of
coal are on hand in the various yards
in Bellefonte and at the different in-
dustries in this section, and it will be
weeks, and probably several months,
before Bellefonte and vicinity will
feel the strike, and by that time there
will probably be a settlement.
Conductor and Mrs. George E.
Lentz, of Harrisburg, with the pastor
of the Lutheran church of Harrisburg
and his wife as their guests, will come

trout fishing. Miss Hazel Lentz, a
daughter of conductor and Mrs. Lentz,
and a former teacher in the Bellefonte
schools, was struck by an automobile
on the streets of Harrisburg some
seven weeks ago and injured to that
continue her work as a teacher in that
city. She is improving slowly but
may not be able to resume teaching
until next fall.
——Roy Gummo, son of David
Gummo, of State College, is a patient
in the Bellefonte hospital suffering
with a badly mangled hand received
in an encounter with a vicious horse
last Saturday. The animal, though
six years old, has always been ill-
tempered and Saturday noon when un-
hitching for dinner the animal turned
on the young man and grabbed him by
the hand. Not content with biting
him he dragged him through the barn-
yard and into the pasture field where
Gummo was finally rescued after sev-
eral men clubbed the horse into sub-
mission. After the young man was
sent to the hospital for treatment his
father shot the horse.
——Eighteen cars of coal, brick and
other commodities were piled up in a
big freight wreck which occurred at
the Eugene Mattern farm between Ju-
lian and Unionville at eighteen min-
utes of two o’clock on Monday after-
noon. About a third of a mile of
track was torn up and the wreck
blocked the track so that all the after-
noon trains were compelled to trans-
fer and it was not until Tuesday
morning that the road was opened to
traffic. The only man injured was
William Watson, a brakeman, of Ty-
rone, who was standing on top of a
box car which turned over on its side.
Watson was thrown to the ground
with his breast on a stone sustaining
slight injuries.
——Miss Annie Powers was found
in a helpless condition . in the alley
leading from east Linn to Lamb street,
at noontime yesterday, and was car-
ried to her home on the latter street.
She evidently had suffered a stroke of
paralysis while on her way home for
dinner. At the time this item was
written she was entirely helpless and
unable to talk. Miss Powers for a
number. of years worked as.a compos-
itor in the various mewspaper offices
of Bellefonte, being at one time em-
ployed in the “Watchman” office.
Since the death of her mother a num-
ber of years. ago she and her sister,
Miss Eva, have occupied the old home
on the extreme end of east Lamb
street. Two sisters live in Philadel-

Hard Rain Spoils Trout Fishing on
Opening Day. :
Old Jupiter Pluvius sent down a
perfect deluge of rain last Friday
night and saved the trout for future
sport. Of the hundreds who had every
their favorite trout stream early Sat-
urday morning only a small per cent.
had the hardihood to venture out after
who did go found fishing poor, as all
streams were running bank full of wa-
ter the color of a yellow clay field.
Some of the “old timers,” who in
years gone by have always made prize
catches: in Spring creek, between the
Lamb and High street bridges, drew
absolute blanks this year. Not be-
cause of the scarcity of trout but be-
cause of the condition of the stream.
. A few of those who went up Spring
creek and Logan banch early in the
morning got some trout before the
floodtide of muddy water came down
those steams, but the number caught
was very small. John Nighthart got
twelve and that was the largest catch
that was recorded. A number of fish-
ermen got one, two and three but they
were among the lucky ones.
Quite a number of Bellefonters who
have permanent camps on Fishing
creek went down on Friday so as to
be on the ground early Saturday
morning, but it rained just as hard
down there as up here and the result
was a two foot flood in that stream.
Most of the fishermen did not bother
to fix up their rod and tackle while
the few who made a try at fishing
soon became discouraged and quit.
Robert F. Hunter and borough
councilman Benjamin Bradley went
out in a row boat to try their luck in
mid-stream at bait fishing. Their
boat was caught in a fifteen mile cur-
rent and carried down stream. Real-
izing that they were approaching a
twelve or fourteen foot rapids Mr.
ashore but his paddle caught beneath
a rock, he lost his hat and both men
narrowly escaped being thrown into
the raging water. They finally man-
aged to get the boat near enough to
shore that they were able to grab hold
of the limbs of overhanging trees and
thus managed to beach their boat and
get out on solid land.
While the streams were still quite
muddy on Monday morning a number
of fishermen went out to try their luck
again. John Nighthart, his son Har-
ry and Hugh Daley composed a crowd
that fished Spring creek and Logan’s
branch. Daley caught 17, Harry
Nighthart 15 and John Nighthart 12.
Dr. Kilpatrick was also successful in
landing seven on Monday morning,
while a number of others got trout.
While Bellefonte fishermen have
been floundering around and wonder-
ing when the weather and the streams
will be more favorable experts with
the rod and line from out of the county
come in and gobble up some nice
catches. For instance: On Monday
William H. Baird, borough clerk of
Juniata, but who is an old Milesburg
boy and not only knows every old
smimmin’ hole in that locality . but
every trout hole as well, was fishing
host of a little party which included
J. J. Barry, Will Roland and Harry
Fry, all of Juniata, who whipped
Spring creek between Bellefonte and
Milesburg and succeeded in catching
35 trout and 8 suckers. Baird led the
field with eleven trout, the largest of
which measured 15% . inches., Barry.
landed ten and Fry and Roland seven
each, the latter getting one which
measured 15 inches. The result of the
day’s sport was a big trout supper at
the Baird parental home in Milesburg.

ently as little trouble as stopping am

at 31st and Chestnut street, wholesale deal-

business college about a month ago

Adam Baweic Paroled Last Friday
by Judge Quigley.
Adam A. Baweic, the Wilkes-Barre
young man who on February 24th was
sentenced by Judge Quigley to pay a
fine of five hundred dollars and under-
go six months imprisonment in the
Centre county jail, was released on
parole last Friday, a portion of his
fine was remitted and he was given
four months in which to pay the costs
and the unremitted portion of the fine.
When called before the court Baweic
stoutly maintained that the story he
told the court at the time of his ar-
rest was the truth. He maintained
that on the occasion of his arrest was
only his third trip back to the College
since his graduation and that he had
not carried whiskey on former trips.
He stated that he was willing to face
any one who made the charge that he
had been carrying on a regular boot-
legging business. He told the court
that there were two other young men
from Wilkes-Barre who had made a
number of trips to the College and he
had probably been blamed for what
they had done. In paroling Baweic
the court admonished him to keep
away from the booze game if he want-
ed to escape more serious trouble.
