Bellefonte Merchants Petition Council
for Relief from Outside Hawkers.
Only six members were present at
the regular meeting of borough coun-
cil on Monday evening. Messrs. Wal-
ter C. Cohen and W. Frank Crawford,
representing the Associated Business
Men of Bellefonte, were present and
requested council to take some action
which would afford the merchants of
the town protection against the itin-
erant hawkers of merchandise who
periodically visit Bellefonte and sell
their wares without giving any re-
turns to the borough. They maintain-
ed that the merchants of the town,
who pay taxes and always contribute
to every public spirited movement, are
entitled to protection; especially when
they have for sale just as good, if not
better, merchandise than the itiner-
ant hawker, and at just as reasonable
a figure. The committee was inform-
ed that there is an ordinance covering
the matter which prevides a license
fee of not less than $25.00 nor more
than $100.00 for any person coming
into the borough to sell anything in
competition to the regular merchants
of the town, which, if enforced, should
afford ample protection. The matter,
however, was referred to the Fire and
Police committee and borough solicit-
or for proper investigation and re-
The Street committee reported the

The Fire and Police committee rec-
ommended the election of the follow-
ing men as official drivers for the
pumpers: For the Logans, J. R.
Storch, Ellis Hines, G. Max Gamble
and Homer P. Barnes. For the Un-
dines, George Carpeneto, - Charles
Saxion, Ralph Moerschbacher and
Basil Doll. The recommendation was
accepted and approved by council. The
committee also recommended the re-
election of Robert E. Kline as chief
fire marshall for the ensuing year,
giving as the reason the very excel-
lent report submitted to council at the
last meeting of the work of the de-
partment during the year 1922. The
committee’s recommendation was ac-
cepted and Mr. Kline was re-elected
without a dissenting vote.
Mr. Cunningham called attention to
the fact that according to the fire mar-
shall’s report the borough now has an
ample supply of fire hose in good con-
dition and he introduced a motion,
which was passed, requesting the. sec-
retary of council to notify the fire
marshall to see that the hose is prop-
erly dried in the towers, after use, be-
fore being stored in the pumpers, as
it is the only proper way to preserve
them against unnecessary deteriora-

Local High School Loses to Lock
On Friday night tie local High
school basket ball team suffered its
second defeat of the season at the
nds of the Lock Haven High school,
n the latter's floor, by the score of
39 to 21. The score does not do jus-
tice to the team’s playing, as they
held their opponents at half time to
13 to 11, and the middle of the second
half saw Lock Haven with only four
points in the lead. At this point, how-
ever, Coffee, the six feet two Lock
Haven centre, started, dropping them
through the net after many ineffectu-
al previous attempts to score. This
handicap height, combined with a
Wretched, example of officiating by the
referee, proved too strong a combina-
ition for. the good passing and fighting
spirit of the local team to overcome.
The beys are : determined that they
will make the return game here the
occasion for administering to Lock
Haven a sound defeat-and at the same
time, show. them how to give a team a
square deal: oe

——Sunday’s deep snow put a stag-
nation on the aerial mail at the Belle-
fonte field. The plane from New York
came in on time and landed in the
snow but could not get up speed
enough through the snow to take off.
The result was the Emerick Motor Bus
company snow plow was requisitioned
and a runway opened the length of the
field, so that it was noontime on Mon-
day when the plane got away on its
western trip.
A supposedly weather-wise man
living in the north tier counties on
Saturday predicted thirty-one more
snows this winter, and on Sunday we
got one of them about a foot deep.
The State Highway Department and
the Emerick Motor Bus company put
their snowplows in commission and
opened the main roads to State Col-
iege and Lock Haven so that travel
was delayed very little. Fortunately
the snowfall was not accompanied
with high windstorms and there was
no drifting.
The members of Mrs. Reiter's
Sunday cchool class of the Bellefonte

the window until Saturday night, Jan-
uary 27th. Bids for the articles will
be taken during the week at the store
and both the quilt and the cushion will
go to the highest bidder at the closing
of the store Saturday night, January
At the annual congregational

— In refusing a license to Earl
Kline, for the Garman house last
week, Judge Quigley will keep Belle-
fonte dry so far as public drinking
places are concerned. He also refused
three in Philipsburg and held under
advisement one in Philipsburg and
one in Rush township. Only six li-
censes were granted, one in Millheim,
one retail and one brewer’s license in
Philipsburg, two in Snow Shoe town-
ship and one in Casanova. When
Judge Quigley went on the bench in
1916 there were twenty-eight licensed
liquor places in Centre county, four of
them in Bellefonte. Of course the war
time legislation had a lot to do with
wiping out the drinking places and
the result is that now there are only
six legalized places in the whole
St. John’s Lutheran Brother-
hood will entertain the Presbyterian

For?” Dr. Van Ormer is one of the
leading Lutheran ministers in Cen-
tral Pennsylvania and for a number
of years was pastor of the Second
Lutheran church in Altoona, but at
present is holding the chair of phil-
osophy at Juniata College. He has
been on the lecture and Chautauqua
platform for many seasons and is a
speaker of eloquence and great ability.

Real Estate Changes.
The housing situation in Bellefonte
is just as acute today as it was sev-
eral years ago and the only sure way
of staying in one place any length of
time is by owning your own home. Of
course every man is not in a position
to buy and these unfortunates are
compelled for one reason or another
to go house hunting year after year.
and though it is yet over two months
from moving time quite a number of
. The only sure way of having a home
these days in which one can live un-
disturbed is to own it, and among the
number who have come to this conclu-
sion is Charles C. Keichline, who has
purchased the Jared Harper property,
on the corner of High and Thomas,
where he will move when he leaves
the double house on Thomas street
which has also been sold by Mr. Har-
Charles Heisler has purchased the
double house on Thomas street from
Jared Harper and with his wife will
move into the side now occupied by
Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Keichline.
Mr. Harper’s single house has been
purchased by Charles Larimer, the
present occupant.
Homer P. Barnes has bought the
Mrs. H. A. McKee property on east
High street, now occupied by the Al-
len Waite and Mr. Cobb families, and
with his mother and sister will move
there when they vacate the property
on Bishop street which has been their
home for many years, but which was
recently purchased by Harvey Miller.
The congregation of the Methodist
church has finally closed the deal for
the purchase of the G. R. Spigelmyer
home, in the rear of the church on
Howard street, for $8,750. Inasmuch
as they will not get possession until
the 15th of next October they have
not yet decided whether to use it as a
parsonage or a community house.
Allen Heverly has bought the Min-
gle property on Blanchard street, in
the rear of the brick school house,
which in the spring will be occupied
by his son Richard and family.

given last Friday evening, provided a
rare treat for the music lovers. Karl

-——0On Monday afternoon a farmer
was driving down High street with a
load of corn on his way to C. Y. Wag-
ner & Co’s mill. A young man in a
Ford truck was going up High street
at the same time and drove so close
to the sled that the hub of his left
front wheel caught the standard on
the rear bob of the sied, broke it off
and broke the coupling between the
bobs. The steering rods on the car
were bent so that the driver almost
lost control of the car and came near
running onto the pavement. He man-
aged to stop the car, however, and
with the assistance of another man
succeeded in straightening the steer-
ing rod and hurriedly drove up town,
while the farmer secured the assist-
ance of several men and got his sled
connected up temporarily and pro-
ceeded on his way.
