his 88th birthday anniversary on Sun-
day by giving a dinner at his home on

——1It goes without saying that
everybody had a good time on Tues-
day night, and you can have a good
time every evening by watching the

——On Friday two deer were seen
grazing in the wheat field owned by
John McCoy, on the point of the Bald
Eagle mountain. They were too far
away for observers to tell whether
they had horns or not, but they were
full grown deer and made a good meal
on the newly grown grain.
Rev. Harry N. Walker, who has
been pastor of the First Lutheran
church at Milroy since his graduation
at the Gettysburg Theological semi-
nary four years ago, has been extend-
ed a call by the congregation of the

of Mr. and Mrs. A. Stine Walker.
——The Penn State football team
failed to win the game with Syracuse,
played at the Polo grounds, New
York, on Saturday, neither were they
defeated. A scoreless game was the
result. Twenty-five thousand people
saw the contest. Every effort has
been made this week to get the team
in shape for the hard game with the
Navy at Washington, D. C., today.

ers in Centre county shows 11,906 Re-
publicans, 7,892 Democrats, 562 Pro-
hibitionists, 86 Socialists and 1,488
who failed to designate their party.
But this is no guarantee that the elec-
tion next Tuesday will go according
to the registration. In fact, we have
every reason to believe that when the
ballots are all counted the result will
be much different.
Thomas H. Harter has a crew
of men at work digging out the foun-
dation for his new building which
eventually will house the Keystone
Gazette office. The building will be
located just south of that paper's
present location, and while it will not
be erected this fall he has hopes of
getting the foundation walls down so
that work on the building proper can
be started early in the spring.
The Byron G. Harlan phono-
graph concert to be held at the opera
house this (Friday) evening promises
to be of unusual interest to the people
of Bellefonte and vicinity. In addi-
tion to the fact that it will be a bene-
fit for the Woman’s Auxiliary of the
American Legion Mrs. M. R. Krader
has consented to sing one or two songs
for a record, which will later be re-
produced to the audience. This fea-
ture alone should draw a large crowd.
b A small but appreciative audi-
ence gathered in the chapel of the
Presbyterian church on Saturday
evening to hear the able young presi-
dent of the Pennsylvania Federation
. of Music Clubs, Miss Elizabeth Hood
Latta, give a short but impressive
talk on American music. The recital
which followed was characterized by
~a beautiful finish in every detail and
Miss Latta proved an interpretive ar-
tist of rare charm and artistic appeal.
She was ably assisted at the piano by
Mrs. G. Russell Blair, whose facile
and accomplished reading of the diffi-
«cult accompaniments was worthy of
-all praise.
William George Gamber, son of
Mrs. Catherine Gamber, of Port Ma-
tilda, is now recounting his experienc-
es of the past summer to his many
friends in his home town. Last De-
cember he joined the marines at Phil-
adelphia and early this summer he
was detailed as one of the guards on
the U. S. ship Henderson for a trip to
Japan and the Far East. Leaving
Hampton Roads in the latter part of
May they first visited the West In-
dies, then sailed through the Panama
canal and after a stop at San Diego,
Cal., sailed west, visiting the Hawaii
Islands, Japan, China, the Philipines
and Guam. They returned through
the Panama canal and docked at Nor-
folk, Va., almost five months after
leaving the States.
Thousands Took Part in Elk’s Third
Annual Hallow-een’ Carnival on
Tuesday Evening.
The delightful weather of Tuesday
evening brought out such a tremen-
dous erowd of merry-makers that the
Mummers literally swamped the big
parade, the chief feature of the Elks
third annual Hallow-een’ carnival.
There were thousands of them, from
gray-locked, ordinarily sedate men
and women to tiny tots that could
barely toddle in the parade. It was a
heterogenous mass of humanity garb-
ed in kaleidoscopical colors so con-
glomerated that it would be a futile
task to attempt to describe even the
best and most picturesque of them.
The turnout of Hallow-een’ revelers
was so large that the parade was stag-
nated from start to finish but the
crowd took it all good naturedly and
plodded along until the last feature
passed the judges stand the second
time. Of course the Mummers were
not all Bellefonte people, as there
were good sized delegations from
State College, Snow Shoe, Milesburg,
Pleasant Gap, and the surrounding
country districts.
The parade formed on Bishop street
at 7:30 o’clock and moved almost on
the stroke of eight. With Major Gen-
eralissimo George Washington Rees at
the head the parade included the Elks
in a body, Wetzler’s band of Miles-
burg, the Harvest Queen (Miss Helen
Smith) in a handsomely decorated
automobile which made her look very
queenly, indeed; the other contestants
in the Harvest Queen contest, Knights
of the Golden Eagle, Odd Fellows
band, the Mummers, thousands of
them; Lemont band, the Undine and
Logan fire companies with their
pumpers, a delegation of Red Men
and the floats. Chief among the lat-
ter was that of the Beatty Motor Co.,
which, with a Fordson tractor pulled
Jake Barlet’s old platform wagon on
which was an old gray mare, the ban-
ner bearing the inscription, “The old
gray mare, she ain’t what she used to
be;” another by the Odd Fellows or-
phanage, the Y. W. girls, Miss Coo-
ney’s Hat Shop, Wion’s garage, Fau-
ble’s store, United Telephone Co., and
an old horse and buggy of the 1822
vintage and a 1922 car, and various
The parade marched to the Dia-
mond, thence down High street and
countermarched to Spring street;
thence cn Spring to Howard, Howard
to Allegheny, Allegheny to the school
house where it countermarched and
returned to the Diamond, passing the
judges stand in front of the Elks and
disbanding. Owing to the fact that on
its final round the marchers were com-
pelled to go slow past the judges stand
it was nine o’clock when the tail end
disbanded. It was undoubtedly the
biggest parade of its kind ever held in
Bellefonte and not an accident hap-
pened to mar the pleasure of the oc-
The charity dance in the armory im-
mediately after the parade was very
largely attended, the net receipts be-
ing in excess of two hundred dollars.
Of course preliminary to the big
night was the Harvest Queen contest
which closed at ten o'clock last Sat-
urday night. Just 41,430 votes were
cast in the contest and the result was
as follows:
Helen Smith - -\ - 10630
Henrietta Nolan - - - 8530
Mildred Gunsallus - - 7920
Mary Pickel - - - 7340
© Anna Eckel - - - - 7010
The result of the cntest far ex-
ceeded the expectations of the com-
mittee having it in charge and for
that reason they awarded a prize of
$25.00 to the winner; $15.00 to the
next highest and $10.00 each to the
three others, giving all of them a
place of honor in the parade.
Of course we didn’t see it all, be-
cause part of it didn’t follow through
to the point of countermarching on
west High street, but what we did
see revealed some really outstanding
make-ups. Beyond a doubt “the Gold
Dust Twins” looked just like they had
stepped right out of the label on the
much advertised cleanser box. The
“Snow Man” and the “Cannibal” were
splendid representations. Beatty's
float illustrative of the passing of the
horse as motive power was well con-
ceived and the bucking auto that fol-
lowed it was the liveliest pile of junk
we have ever seen.
The very best girl, to our mind, was
a boy from Snow Shoe. He didn’t
even wear a mask and his make-up
was so perfectly and modestly femi-
nine that a well known gentleman
from his own town .and the writer
were both utterly deceived when he
stopped to speak to the former, in our
presence. The father who pushed a
perambulator carrying a quartet of
babies deservedly created a lot of
amusement because it was something
few of us hope or want to see in any
other than a parade of impossibilities.
But in all the riot of grotesqueness the
best thing was the spirit. The spirit
to play. The great leveler, the brok-
en barriers of caste, sex, creed and
color. Rich and poor, black and white
were all happy together because mere-
ly a mask concealed who they were—
not what they were.
Notwithstanding the fact that there
were so many creditable costumes no
attempt will be made to enumerate
them. They were all appropriate for
the occasion and showed considerable
ingenuity, time and patience, not
counting the expense.
Because of this fact it was no easy
task for the judges to pick out “the
best,” but they did their work consci-
entiously and with a desire to do jus-
winners is as follows:

_ Two convicted murderers were elec-
trocuted at the Rockview penitentiary
on Monday morning. They were
Thomas Verne Rhyal, of Lawrence
county, convicted of causing the death
of Clara Belle Lennox, a fourteen year
old High school girl of New Castle,
and Curtis Sipple, convicied of the
murder of Gabrielle Pociacchia, in
York county, in 1919.
Rhyal went to the chair protesting
his innocence of the crime of murder,
claiming that the girl’s death was the
result of an accident, but the jury did
not think so. On July 14th, 1921,
Rhyal induced the Lennox girl to go
for an auto ride. She failed to re-
turn home that night and a search
was instituted. The next day she was
found by berry pickers in a clump of
bushes four miles from New Castle.
Though alive her clothing was badly
torn, her head crushed and she was
unconscious. She was taken to a hos-
pital and lived until November 26th,
though she never regained conscious-
ness. Rhyal claimed that her injuries
were the result of an accident while
she was assisting him in repairing a
brake band on his car.
Sipple, who was originally from
Kentucky, killed Pociacchia in a rail-
road camp then escaped to his native
State. Two years later he was run
down and captured by members of the
Pennsylvania state police, taken back
to York, tried and convicted. The
bodies of both men were claimed by
Membership Drive for Bellefonte and
Vicinity to be Held November
At a recent meeting of the executive
committee of the Bellefonte Chapter
of the American Red Cross John G.
Love Esq., was appointed chairman of
the local Red Cross roll call. A com-
mittee consisting of Mrs. G. McClure
Gamble, Mrs. Charles R. Kurtz, Mrs.
R. S. Brouse, Mrs. J. D. Seibert, Mrs.
Charles Schlow, Mrs. Blanche Schloss
and Hardman P. Harris was appointed
as a general committee to aid the
chairman. At a meeting of the com-
mittee it was decided to make the roll
call or membership drive during the
period November 11th-24th
District captains have been selected
to cover the local territory and these
captains, with the workers they select,
will canvass Bellefonte and vicinity
during the period of the roll call. An
especial effort to secure as many
members as possible will be made on
the afternoon of Sunday, November
12th, national Red Cross Sunday. The
district workers will endeavor to call
at the homes within their territory
that afternoon. It is earnestly re-
quested that all residents of Belle-
fonte and vicinity, if unable to be at
home Sunday afternoon, November
12th, leave their membership dues
with their neighbors.
The annual membership dues are
$1.00, contributing membership is
$5.00, sustaining membership is $10.-
00, life membership is $50,00 and pa-
tron membership is $100.00.
It seems useless to comment upon
the work done by the National Amer-
ican Red Cross. It is an organization
known favorably in every household.
It serves in many ways at home
through its local chapters and abroad.
In the past year it has expended more
than $9,000,000.00 towards the relief
of ex-service men; $900,000.00 has
been expended in nineteen States in
disaster relief, emergencies caused by
fire, flood and other catastrophes; it
has trained and assigned 1264 public
health nurses under direction of its
chapters; and, it has conducted recon-
struction work throughout Europe.
Locally the Bellefonte Chapter of
the American Red Cross has been of
constant aid to the Bellefonte hospital,
it has been active . in public health
work and has maintained a community
nurse. The weekly reports of the
work done by the nurse have been
published during the past year, and
with these reports the citizens of this
community are familiar.
In its work the Red Cross knows
no creed nor race. Its efforts and re-
lief are unstintingly for all mankind
in emergencies and at all times. As
such it is the organization of all and
every citizen. Every citizen, man,
woman and child is qualified for mem-
bership in this great crganization and
should have his or her name on its
roll. By so doing the American Red
Cross will be enabled to undertake
more extensive work than ever before.
As a result the general welfare of all
communities will be better cared for
and every one will benefit.
Let every citizen have his or her
membership, annual, contributing or
sustaining, ready for the canvassers
on Sunday, November 12th, the Amer-
ican Red Cross Sunday, but in any
event do not let the period of the Roll
Call drive pass by without seeing to it
that your name is enrolled as a mem-
ber of the American Red Cross.

Two Early Sunday Morning Fires.
Two Bellefonte barns were entirely
destroyed by fire at an early hour on
Sunday morning and the fact that the
barns were located two blocks apart
and the fires started at about the same
time would indicate that they were set
on fire. They were the properties of
Hugh N. Crider and ex-sheriff W.
Miles Walker, both residents of east
Linn street. The fires were discovered
shortly before three o’clock and both
barns were already enveloped in
flames, evidence that the fires must
have been started almost at the same
time and that they were undoubtedly
the work of an incendiary.
Both fire companies responded, the
Undines stopping at the Walker barn
and the Logans going to Crider’s. As
the buildings were too far gone to
save efforts of the firemen were con-
centrated on saving adjoining proper-
ties. Nothing of any material value
was in either of the barns, but at the
Walker home the chicken house ad-
joined the barn and all their chickens
were burned but three. The Gilmour
chicken house was also burned but all
the chickens were saved. The Gilmour
house caught fire from flying sparks
but it was extinguished before any
great damage was done. Both barns
were in splendid condition and can not
be replaced under twelve to fifteen
hundred dollars. Mr. Crider carried
$350.00 insurance on his building.
While there is no certainty as to
who started the fires suspicion is di-
rected to a man who recently had
some trouble and later was ordered
out of town by burgess W. Harrison

A Distressing Accident.
A distressing accident happened at
State College on Saturday afternoon
when Betty Freeman, three year old
daughter of Mrs. Eliza Freeman, was
knocked down and run over by a car
driven by Miss Grace Watts, daugh-
ter of Dean R. L. Watts. The young
lady, however, has been exonerated
of all blame for the accident. A
number of children, according to re-
port, were playing in the public square
of the town and when Miss Watts ap-
proached she not only slowed down
her car put applied the emergency
brake. The child evidently did not no-
tice the car and ran right into it, be-
ing knocked down by the fender and
falling in such a way that the car ran
over her right leg, fracturing the
bone in three places and inflicting a
laceration between the knee and ankle
three inches in length.
The child was brought to the Belle-
fonte hospital where every effort is be-
ing made to save her leg.
Fox Killed the Cat.
During the past week or so the
Bellefonte Hardware company has
had on exhibition in one of its show
windows the three “pet” foxes of little
Miss Martha Hugg, daughter of To-
ner A. Hugg, of Milesburg. During
the big parade on Tuesday night one
of the foxes managed to get out of
the window into the store room and
coming across the store cat promptly
proceeded to kill and eat it. When
discovered about the only portion of
the cat remaining was one leg, and the
fox had that in its mouth.

The announcement that grand
opera is to be sung in Bellefonte next
Monday night comes as a surprise.
Not at all that Bellefonte is incapable
of enjoying it, but because of the ex-
treme rarity of musical organizations
strong enough to properly sing grand
opera making what the profession
calls “one night stands.” We have
had grand opera attempted here by
concert companies but we don’t recall
that one has ever been sung with full
chorus and orchestral support such as
is announced for next Monday night.
We are assured that the production
will fully justify the flattering ad-
vance notices it has received.
