EMERICK MOTOR BUS CO. GETS
Public Service Commission Defines
Rights of Common Carriers and
Call and Demand Vehicles.
In a decision handed down on April
2nd, an official copy of which reached
Bellefonte this week, the Public Serv-
ice Commission has gone on record as
defining the rights and privileges of
automobiles and motor busses holding
certificates as common carriers and
those holding call and demand certifi-
cates. The decision was given in the
case of the complaint filed by the Em-
erick Motor Bus Co., of Bellefonte,
against Harry Roan, Charles Tressler,
Percival Rudy and Harry Resides, who
operate call and demand taxicab serv-
ice in State College and vicinity. The
complaint charged these men with im-
proper conduct and alleged that they
were operating contrary to the rules
and regulations of the Public Service
Commission, in that they were in the
habit of coming to Bellefonte, park-
ing their cars about the Pennsylvania
railroad station and carrying passen-
gers in competition with the Emerick
Motor company bus line on its regular
schedule, and soliciting passengers
contrary to the regulations of the
The report, decision and order hand-
ed down is quite lengthy and exceed-
ingly specific, especially defining the
rights, privileges and responsibilities
of the two classes of common carriers.
In the order the Commission directs
that Roan, Tressler, Rudy and Resides
forthwith cease and desist from op-
erating motor vehicles as common car-
riers for the transportation of pas-
sengers between the borough of State
College and the borough of Bellefonte;
providing, however, that the restrain-
ing order shall not apply when said
respondents, or any of them, are spe-
ially engaged to transport passengers
from State College to Bellefonte, and
shall not apply when said respondents,
or any of them, are specially called to
Bellefonte to transport particular
passengers from Bellefonte to State
The order further directs that the
State College taxicab men, their sev-
eral agents, servants and employees
shall forthwith cease and desist from
parking their cars at the Pennsylva-
nia railroad depot or other places in
the borough of Bellefonte, and prohib-
its them from soliciting persons for
transportation as common carriers.
In its decision of the case the Com-
mission stated that the call and de-
mand certificates were issued for
State College and vicinity, and did not
contemplate the carrying on of such
a business in the borough of Belle-
fonte which would be in direct compe-
tition with those persons who hold
call and demand certificates for Belle-
. fonte and vicinity. The Commission
| states that unless such rules and reg-
ulations are prescribed endless confu-
| sion would be created which would
cause difficulties in regulation of com-
mon carriers, and that the borough of
State College and the borough of
Bellefonte should be considered sepa-
rate communities which form a basic
area from which to operate. This de-
cision clearly defines the rights of the
various parties which have" been in
controversy for a long time.
The complaint, on the behalf of the
Emerick Motor Bus Co., was repre-
sented before the Commission by
James C. Furst Esq., while the re-
spondents were represented by J. Ken-
nedy Johnston Esq.
Port Matilda Will Have Fine New
As mentioned in the “Watchman”
last week Port Matilda’s new Commu-
nity bank will be opened for business
tomorrow, and that thriving town up
Bald Eagle valley will have an insti-
tution worthy of most any locality.
The bank will occupy its own new
building, a handsome two-story struec-
ture of gray brick. The banking room
occupies the most advantageous loca-
tion on the first floor. It is large, airy
and well lighted and, in addition to the
main room, includes a private office
for the cashier and another private of-
fice. The interior woodwork is of oak,
nicely finished. The bank equipment
is modern and up-to-date, with a time-
A commodious store room is also
located on the first floor of the build-
ing. The second floor has been con-
verted into two five-room flats for
residential purposes, both equipped
with modern conveniences. The board
of directors include some of the most
substantial citizens of that locality,
namely: W. Scott Crain, E. T. Spotts,
0. D. Eberts, Isaac Harpster, W. T.
Hoover and J. B. Miles. Fred O’Con-
ner will be the cashier in charge.
A New Serial for the “Watchman.”
Next week the “Watchman” will
start a new serial story. The one se-
lected will be Zane Grey’s “Under the
Light of Western Stars.” It is a
splendid story, one of Grey’s best, and
that is saying a lot for he writes many
of America’s best sellers. We have
taken the time to read a number of
novels lately with the purpose of se-
lecting one that would command the
interest of all classes of “Watchman”
readers and we think we have made
no mistake in choosing “Under the
Light of Western Stars.” It is found-
ed on fact, has some political signifi-
cance, lots of thrills and a very pret-
ty love story. Read the opening chap-
ters next week. We are sure you will
find a lot of intensely interesting mo-
film even pay its way.
ments while reading the new serial.
Quite a few subscribers to the “Watchman” have inadvert-
ently fallen in arrears with the result that we'll soon have to try
paying our bills in Russian rubles or German marks unless they
come to the rescue soon.
Look at the label on this paper or on the wrapper in which
it is enclosed—if it comes to you in a single wrapper. There you
will see your own name, the month and the year to which your
subscription is paid. If it is not marked up to some time in ’23,
this year, wont you please make an effort to pay it up at once.
We are serious when we say that we need the money badly.
Your arrearage may be only a few dollars—a trifling sum, so you
think—and so it is, but when you stop to think that there may be
several hundred accounts on our list in the same condition you
will appreciate how much the receipt of them all would mean to
us and how little each item really means to its sender.
If you are not in it already won’t you please help us to get
every subscriber to the “Watchman” in the 1923 class at once by
sending whatever amount is necessary to bring you up to it.
Do it now, please. Don’t put it off until tomorrow.

A Bridge Tester.
Bright and early Monday morning
the Beatty Motor Co. started a truck
off for Mifflinburg that tested the car-
rying strength of small bridges along
the highway to that point.
It was a Fordson tractor converted
for use as a dinkey engine in hauling
and shifting small cars. It was mount-
ed on four standard railroad car
wheels and had been demonstrating
here in the quarries of the American
Lime and Stone Co., but there was a
sale for it in Mifflinburg so that it was
run onto a 13,000 lb. truck, which with
the Ford “contraption” weighing
12,000 lbs. made a total load for the
bridges en route of over twelve tons.
The New Laundry to Open Next
On Saturday, March 31st, James S.
Wilkie closed the deal whereby he
took over the entire interest of E. J.
Walker in the new steam laundry that
has been fitted up in the Miller garage
building, on south Water street, op-
posite the Big Spring.
Mr. Wilkie expects to open for bus-
iness on April 23rd. He will op-
erate under the name of the Model
laundry and will give it his personal
attention to the end that his patrons
will recieve most careful, courteous
and satisfactory service at all times.

Horseshoe Trail Meeting at Bush
Finding a horseshoe used to be con-
sidered good luck before the days of
the automobiles, and that is proba-
bly the reason why the Williamsport
to Cumberland highway has been
dubbed the Horseshoe Trail. Work
was begun on Monday of this week on
putting up the official markers along
the trail, big yellow horseshoes, and
information will probably be given at
a meeting of the association to be held
in Bellefonte today, when the visitors
will be the guests of landlord Lewis
Daggett, at the Bush house for lunch-
eon, as to how the work is proceeding.
One hundred or more enthusiasts are
expected to be in attendance.
Quite a number of local automibil-
ists have enrolled as members of the
association and the local committee
have hopes of eventually securing fifty
members. The membership fee is only
five dollars, so that it is not an ex-
pensive organization to get into.
Clubs at State College.
Amateur musicians from all over
Pennsylvania have been gathered at
State College this week; the occasion
being the annual convention of the
federation of Music Study clubs of the
In addition to the regular business
of the federation there have been con-
tests by the most promising amateurs,
instrumental and voice, for the honor
of representing Pennsylvania in the
contest of the national federation, at
Asheville, N. C., in June.
Miss Elizabeth Hood Latta, of Phil-
adelphia, president of the federation,
in her annual report stated that there
had been an increase of twenty-three
clubs during the year. Robert Broun,
of Pottsville, first vice president, ex-
plained the young artists’ contest,
which is being sponsored by the fed-
The convention opened on Tuesday
with a concert by the Penn State mu-
sical organization, in which the glee
club, quartet, mandolin club and or-
chestra participated. During the after-
noon the piano contest was held.
There were eight contestants among
whom was Miss Kessler, of Millheim,
and while she did not win the fact that
the contest was so close that the
judges decided it only with the great-
est difficulty, is evidence that she is
quite abreast of the best amateurs in
the State in her art. Miss Eleanor
Quinn won premier honors, which are
a prize of $100 and the honor of rep-
resenting Pennsylvania at the nation-
On Wednesday the violin contest
was held. There were only three con-
testants, but it was a feast for lovers
of the stringed instruments. Greisha
Manatozitch, of Philadelphia, won it.
About two years ago he won the Zu-
belik prize of $1000.00 and his tri-
umph of Wednesday will give him the
chance 'of contesting in the national
convention where, if he should win, he
will be rewarded with a two year’s
course abroad and his musical career
financed by the Federation until he
has become established. :
Manatozitch is a Russian Jew, but
was born in this country to which his
parents came as emigrants.
Yesterday, all day, was devoted to
the voice contest. There were twen-
ty-five entrants, sopranos, contraltos,
basses and tenors. All sang the same
selections and as there were so many
of them it was an all day affair, the
result not having been announced up
to the hour of our going to press.
Among the vocal contestants was Miss
Himes, of Pittsburgh, who it will be re-
called sang here last fall under the
auspices of the local Music Study club.
She won the State contest, but failed
in the national. Her effort yesterday
was an attempt to get back for the
The special entertainment of the
week was the recital, Wednesday even-
ing, by Madam Olga Zamaroff—pro-
nounced Za-Mar-off. In introducing
the noted artist Miss Hood called her
“certainly the most noted pianist in
the United States and, we think, in
the world.” Zamaroff played without
notes or program, announcing such
selections as she had the inspiration at
the moment to play.
She is wonderful, of course, and so
far beyond the comprehension of the
undeveloped musical soul that she
couldn’t hold a job for a week as pian-
ist at the Scenic.
Last evening Marguerite Sylva, so-
prano, and Mr. Armbruster, piano,
gave a recital using the duo-art piano.
The names of the artists are sufficient
to justify the statement that their’s,
like the performance of Zamaroff, was
an artistic triumph.

road and Mr. Weber informed us that
scraping had been started on it that morn-
ing. He said, however, that it was not so
bad. Sinceshaving so many improved high-
ways we are all inclined to grumble when
we strike a piece of road that some years
ago we might have regarded as being right
fair. Centre Hall is one of the few small
towns through which the motorist can
drive with pleasure. From one end to the
other it has as fine a roadway, with no
sunken or elevated crossings and its coun-
cil has finally succeeded in correcting the

——Through the generosity of Hen-
ry M. Myers, who operates the bus
line betweeen State College and Ty-
rone, $250 has been added to the
State College emergency building
fund, which will help defray the ex-
pense of the erection of a dormitory
for women students. Before the Eas-
ter'vacation Mr. Myers announced
that he would donate to the college
building fund his entire receipts from
students going home for Easter on
Wednesday, March 28th. Naturally
many students took advantage of his
offer and the receipts amounted to the
above named sum, which has been
turned over to the College.
