filled orders and has completed plans
for the erection of an addition to its
plant. It is somewhat handicapped at
present by the shortage of skilled la-

MATCH COMPANIES MERGE.
Pennsylvania Match Co., of Bellefonte,
Included in Big Combine.
Col. W. Fred Reynolds, president
i of the Pennsylvania Match company,
A Bellefonte, on Monday confirmed
the announcement made in New York
a few days previous of the merger of
nine of the largest independent match
companies in the country into one or-
ganization to be.known as the Feder-
al Match company. The merger has
been in process of formation for some
time past but negotiations were com-
pleted only about a week ago.
The new company, which will be
capitalized at six million dollars, in-
cludes the following independent com-
panies: The Pennsylvania Match Co.,
of Bellefonte; Cleveland Match Co., of
Cleveland, Ohio; Fred Fear Match Co.,
of Bloomsburg, Pa.; Indiana Match
Corporation, of Crawfordsville, Ind.;
Minnesota Match Manufacturing Co.,
of Duluth, Minn.; National Match Co.,
of Joliet, Ill.; Reliable Match Co., of
Ashland, Ohio; Union Match Co., of
Duluth, Minn, and the Wheeling
Match Co., of Wheeling, W. Va.
L. A. Sherwood, of Joliet, Ill., has
been selected president of the new
company; Col. W. Fred Reynolds, of
Bellefonte, secretary, and Col. J. L.
Washburn, of Duluth, Minn., chairman
of the board of directors.
Of greatest importance to Belle-
fonte is the announcement that the
merger will in no way affect the man-
agement or operation of the plant of
the Pennsylvania Match company in
Bellefonte, especially adversely. It
will continue just as-it has done in the
past. In fact, instead of a possibility
of its operations being curtailed it is
the belief of the management that its
output will be increased, thus afford-
ing regular employment for a larger
number of persons than ever before.
Col. Reynolds, who took an active part
in the negotiations for the merger,
made it a point to have continued op-
eration of the plant assured, and his
success in the matter is cause for con-
gratulation upon the part of the com-
munity. In addition to being secre-
tary of the new company, Col. Rey-
nolds is also a member of the execu-
tive committee and the finance com:
mittee. With this close connection
with the management and control of-
the new company he will be in a posi-_
tion at all times to safeguard the in-’
terests of the local plant.

and hoped that such gatherings would

A Centre County Boy is Treasurer of
From a recent issue of the Penn
State Alumni News we learn of the
rapid advancement of a Centre coun-
ty boy who went west not so many
years ago. We refer to John Marshall
Snyder who was born at Blanchard,
this county, and is a son of the late
William Snyder of that place.
Marshall, as he was more familiar-
ly known here, was graduated at State
with the class of 1911. ‘Shortly after
his graduation from college he went to
Montana, where with his brother, he
conducted the Billings gas works.
Later he organized and became presi-
dent of the Bank of Lovell, Wyoming,
was made a member of the State
Highway commission and engineered
several of the big industrial enterpris-
es of the Big Horn basin. The Den-
ver, Col., Post, calls him “one of the
best known bankers of the State.”
Last fall he was nominated and elect-
ed State Treasurer of Wyoming, as a

Quite a Number of Cars Sold and
Many Prospects in Sight.
The second annual auto show of the
Centre County Automobile Dealers’
associtioon closed on Saturday night
with the largest attendance of the
week. During the four days of the
show there were a few over fifteen
hundred paid admissions, which was a
little ahead of the attendance during
the five days of the show last year.
In this respect the show was a suc-
The number of cars sold by the var-
ious dealers is estimated at from
twenty to twenty-five, though the
number may be even greater as most
of the dealers were reluctant about
giving exact figures. Every one of
them, however, admitted that they
had booked many prospects. One
dealer who was candid enough to ad-
mit that he had made only one sale
stated that he had more good pros-
pects in view than he booked at both
the previous shows held in the armo-
ry. Another Bellefonte dealer is cred-
ited with making eight sales as the
result of the show. But the actual
sales made upon the floor of the ar-
mory does not tell the whole story of
the show by any means. Many pros-
pective purchasers were in evidence
and naturally looked over every make
of car exhibited. It may be some
days before they make up their mind
which car to buy, but it is almost a
foregone conclusion that they will be
influenced in their choice by the im-
‘| pression made at the show.
The ticket selling contest closed on
Saturday evening and the drawing to
decide the winners took place shortly
after nine o’clock. The judges were L.
Frank Mayes, Roy Wilkinson and
Harry R. Austin and a boy by the
name of Houck drew the tickets out
of the box. The winner of the first
prize: of $50 was Miss Otillie Hughes;
second prize of $25, Miss Polly Sny-
der, of State College; third prize of
$15, Miss Margaret Emery, of Centre
Hall, and fourth prize of $10, Miss
Louise McClure, of Bellefonte.

The third annual citizens military
training course of ‘thirty days in the
Third Corps area, which includes
Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and
District of Columbia will be held this
year at Camp Meade, Md., from June
26th to July 25th. This is designated
as the basic or red course for begin-
ners and includes infantry, field artil-
lery, cavalry and engineers. Training

them to a realization of their obliga-
tions to their country.
