LARGE CLASS OF GRADUATES.
Bellefonte High School Commence-
ment Draws Large Crowds.
The largest class ever turned out at
the Bellefonte High school was grad-
uated this week at the fifty-third an-
nual commencement. The exercises
in connection therewith began on Sun-
day evening with the baccalaureate
sermon in the Presbyterian church.
That edifice was crowded to the doors
with friends of the young graduates |
and members of all the protestant de-
nominations in Bellefonte, whose
churches were closed and the pastors
present at the baccalaureate services.
The musical part of the program was
in charge of Mrs. Krader and was
beautiful and appropriate.
The sermon was by Rev. W. P. Ard,
of the Lutheran church, who took for
his subject “Be strong; quit ye like
men.” His discourse was naturally
directed to the young graduates and
was epitomized under four headings:
Confidence, loyalty, eyesight and sense
of service. In going out into the
world, he told the young men and
women, they must have confidence in
themselves and their ability to per-
form the part in whatever path of life
they may elect to travel. They must
be loyal to themselves, loyal to their
friends, loyal to their country and
their Master. Discoursing on eye-
sight, he said that many people in
traveling along a highway see only
the dust on the road and bushes, the
dead grass by the roadside, the with-
ered flower and the bare spots in the
grainfield, while others glory in the
green grass in the distance, the blos-
som-ladened fruit trees, the promis-
ing crops and everything beautiful in |
nature. He adjured the young stu-
dents to use their eyes in seeing only
the good and beautiful and their hap-
piness and success will be more com-
plete. . Under the head of sense of
service he advised them to be earnest
and sincere in everything they under-
take to do, always willing to give their
best service and in that way only can
they expect to win out in the great
battle of life.
The second event in the commence-
ment exercises was the declammatory
contest in the High school auditorium,
on Monday evening, for the Col. W.
F. Reynolds prizes. The contestants
and their subjects were as follows:
“Jean Val Jean, the Count” Victor Hugo
“Mrs. Mavoi’'s Story” - Ralph Connor
Scholar of Ben Korat” -
Last Word” - Henry VanDyke
Black Horse and His Rider” Shepard
. Mahlon Robb
Storming of Mission Ridge”
Death of Arthur”
“The Flight with the Aurocks” Slenkie-
wiez Jack Yeager
“Fort Wagner" - - -
The judges for the contest were
Col. J. L. Spangler, Rev. W. P. Ard
and James R. Hughes, and after ma-
ture deliberation they awarded the
prizes to Helen Brown and Phil Ray.
with honorable mention for Elizabeth
Hunter and Thurston Smith.
On Tuesday morning the grade pu-
pils in the Allegheny street building
gave a delightful little play as their
contribution to the closing exercises
and on Tuesday evening the dramatic
and glee clubs, under the direction of
Mrs. Krader gave a pleasing enter-
tainment in the auditorium, which was
greatly enjoyed by all present. On
Wednesday morning the grade schools
in the Bishop street building had their
closing exercises, which were featured
by a play in which the children show-
ed up splendidly.
One feature of the week which at-
tracted considerable attention from
visitors was the display of the handi-
work of the students in the domestic
science and manual training depart-
ments. In the latter the boys display-
ed considerable skill in wooderaft. In-
cluded in the display were three com-
plete victrolas and three victrola cab-
inets, all of which would compare very
favorably with most any make of ma-
chine on the market. Tables, floor
lamps and various other articles were
mute evidence of the earnest applica-
tion of the students in this course.
The final commencement exercises
on Wednesday evening drew a large
crowd, friends of the members of the
graduating class. The commencement
address of Dr. Robert Ellwood, of At-
lantic City, was a masterly effort and
listened to with close attention by the
young graduates. Following the ad-
dress Dr. M. J. Locke, president of
the Bellefonte school board, awarded
the diplomas and announced the var-
ious prize winners. The complete list
of graduates was published in last
week’s “Watchman,” but the list of

A Delightful Concert for a Good
The concert given in the Presby-
terian chapel last Friday evening, by |
purely local talent, was a most flatter- |
ing success. Each one of the enter-
tainers was in a happy mood and per-
formed accordingly. The only regret '
of the evening was that owing lo
another engagement the Academy or- |
chestra was compelled to leave before
the audience got a sufficiency of their
Miss Sunday, accompanied by Mrs.
Schad, rendered her violin selections
with ease and in an artistic manner.
Mr. Parrish, with his fine voice, de-
lighted the audience. Miss Shuey and
Mrs. Maybe were charming in every
way, and Miss Sarah Smith showed
splendid execution as a pianist.
Two performers, new to Bellefonte
audiences, were Irvin Pletcher, of
Howard, studying under Mrs. Krader,
who won praise and appreciation from
everybody because of his remarkable
voice and the way in which he uses it;
and Miss Bullock, of Unionville, also
studying under Mrs. Krader whose
impersonations won much applause.
She displayed remarkable ability as a
reader, her interpretation of her se-
lections and her wholesome under-
standing of what was expected of her
delighted her hearers.
It was the consensus of opinion that
Mrs. Krader displayed her histrionic
talent to a very high degree. The
closing number, “Home, Sweet
Home,” sung by the audience, was
most apropos in the suggestion of
The audience, though small because
of several other good entertainments,
was paraphrased as “select and appre-
ciative.” Rev. Evans, in a few com-
plimentary remarks, made an earnest
appeal for the support of the recently
resurrected institution, the Y. M. C.
A., which, under the untiring energy
of Secretary Aplin, is doing so much
from an economical viewpoint for the
girls and loys of the town.
The Woman’s Auxiliary therefore
desires to express its gratitude to the
board of trustees of the Presbyterian
church for the use of the chapel, and
also its appreciation to the many
friends who so generously contributed
their share towards a highly enjoyable
evening and made it possible for the
Auxiliary to cancel its debt of $1000.
Mrs. Bruin .and ‘Her Child Quite
For some time past trainmen on
the Snow Shoe railroad have watched
with considerable interest the antics
of a she bear and her cub that evi-
dently have taken up their abode on!
the point of the mountain in the vi-
cinity of Runville. Several times a
week Mrs. Bruin and her kid come
down off the mountain and disport in
the fields and along the little stream
that flows down through the gap.
Several attempts have been made to
catch’ the cub just to see what the
mother bear would do, but the chubby
little creature is both wary and agile
and has so far proven perfectly able
to take care of itself.
Just about twilight one evening
last week the bear were seen only a
short distance in the rear of the Dim
Lantern, the tea house recently open-
ed near Runville by Miss Ruth Gar-
man and Mrs. Clara Iddings, but they
failed to venture close enough to af-
ford a good view of them. And now
we venture to suggest to the above
ladies the advisability of cultivating
the acquaintance of Mrs. Bruin and
her child as they may come in good
some day as wild life advertising fea-
tures for their tea room.
Construction Work Temporarily Stop-
ped at Penitentiary.
Because of the delay in passing ap-
propriation bills by the present Legis-
lature all construction work at the
Rockview penitentiary ceased last
Thursday evening and seventy or
more men were thrown out of work.
The fiscal year for all State appropri-
ations begins on June 1st and ends on
May 31st, and the appropriation
granted the penitentiary in 1921 hav-
ing been exhausted it was necessary
to discontinue all new work until some
definite action on the appropriation
bill is taken by the Legislature.
Whether the agitation now going on
in Philadelphia over the scandal in the
eastern penitentiary will have any ef-
fect on the appropriation for contin-
ued construction work at the Rock-
view institution remains to be seen,
but until the appropriation question is
settled all construction work will be
