Many Centre Countians Received Di-
plomas at State College Com-
A class of approximately 540 men |
and women received diplomas at the
commencement exercises of The Penn-
sylvania State College on Tuesday, |
this being one of the largest classes
ever to be graduated from the insti-
tution. In addition, 63 men and wom-
en were graduated at the mid-year
exercises, making the total for the
year over 600. About 70 of the grad-
uates were women.
Included among the graduates was
Penn State’s oldest woman student,
Mrs. Sarah Shoemaker Farley, of
Swarthmore, who is proud of the fact
that she has twelve grand-children.
Mrs. Farley is 57 years old and before
entering Penn State herself put two
sons through the institution and
another son through medical college.
She completed the course in botany,
and now expects to continue studying
for an advanced degree.
The unique
courses in the same year was also to
be found at Penn State this year. Mrs.
Susan A. Porterfield, of State Col-
lege, was among the graduates on
Tuesday while her son Henry, a world
war veteran, needs but an additional
three credits and will complete his
work this summer.
A number of the graduates were
world war veterans, including some
rehabilitation students sent there by
the government. Although other
States and foreign countries had rep-
resentatives in the graduating class,
more than 98 per cent. of the gradu-
ates hail from Pennsylvania.
The baccalaureate sermon was
preached last Sunday, class day exer-
cises were held on Monday, and the
commencement proper was on Tues- |
day. President John M. Thomas
awarded the degrees.

Bellefonte Academy Had Successful
The Bellefonte Academy closed a
successful year last week. About
thirty young men, representing the
States of Massachusetts, New York,
New Jersey, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana,
West Virginia and Pennsylvania were
given diplomas. The scholastic stand-
ard was unusually high for the year,
while the football, basket ball and
track teams were winners as usual.
The track team won silken banners or
silver cups at the Penn relays, in Phil-
adelphia, and the Carnegie Tech and
University of Pittsburgh meets, in
Headmaster Hughes says that he
has a very strong faculty secured for
next year, and is expecting great
things also in the athletic life of the
school under the direction of Carl G.
Snavely, the new athletic coach.
Those who think they know what they
are talking about declare that Mr.
Snavely is the best “prep” school
coach in the country.

Streamer, a former Lutheran minis-
. ter but now secretary of the Chamber
i of Commerce, of Boulder,
about the westerners entirely foreign
{in the east.
: presented an open sesame when he
mentioned John Andy Hunter, a na- |
tive Centre countian,
State Collge and now one of the lead-
ing professors in the University of
Colorado. Any friend of Andy can
always get a hearing in the “Watch-
man” office hence we knocked off long
' enough to give Mr. Streamer a chance
to tell us what a wonderful place
Boulder is and any man or woman who
is planning a “see America first” trip, ining the exact area of the brood in
should not fail to include Boulder on
their itinerary.
Mr. Streamer, by the way, is a na-
| also a minister in the Lutheran church
"and for a number of years preached
in Philipsburg, and later at Martins-
| burg, Blair county. His son was also
pastor. of the Martinsburg church five
years before going west. In his work
as secretary of the Chamber of Com-
merce of Boulder he conceived the
eastern booster trip in connection with
a visit back to his native land. He
has with him his four children, Phoe-
be, Paul, Charles and Mary Elizabeth,
and they travel in a Buick car, aver-
aging over three hundred miles a day
on the rip east.
Mr. Streamer claims the western
roads are superior to those in the east
and being of clay and gravel not so
tiresome to the motorist. His entire
trip, as planned, will cover 4500 miles
and he expects to be back in Boulder
by the first of July.

Brief History of 17-Year Locusts.
The seventeen year locusts, known
to scientists as Brood No. 14 of the
periodical cicada, have made their ap-
pearance in many sections of Penn-
sylvania, including Centre county, aud
according to the Department of Agri-
culture will infest nineteen counties in
the State. While Brood 14 is general-
ly accepted as making its appearance
every seventeen years not since 1874
have locusts been so plentiful in Cen-
tre county as they are this year. That
year dense swarms of them infested
, woodlands and overswept orchards, |
doing considerable damage to young
trees. The visitation of the locust in
olden times was generally looked up-
on as the scourge of death because of
. the prevailing opinion that their sting
| was fatal and that they would attack
human beings, but this belief has long
| been dissipated. :
Special interest is manifest in the
appearance of this brood as it is the
{ first one noted or recorded in litera-
| ture by the European colonists on this
| continent, although the officials of the
{ Bureau of Plant Industry, explain that
lit is likely the Indians long had ob-
served the periodical occurrence, be-
cause at that time they associated it
with pestilence. Brood No. 14, as this
particular branch is known, appears
| as far west as Illinois, south to Geor-
gia and up the Atlantic Coast into
is principally to small trees. The dam-
| age to large shade trees is slight, ac-
cording to the Bureau of Plant Indus-
try, but very small trees frequently
are damaged severely by egg punct-
ures made by the females. Small
limbs are weakened so they may be
broken by winds. If the insect ap-
pears in numbers, the bureau advises
that large young fruit and shade trees
be protected with mosquito bar or oth-
er thin, light material.
The bureau is interested in deter-
Pennsylvania and is asking that spec-
imens be sent in by persons who find
them. Due to the destruction of the
, forests, the experts say, the range and
abundance of each successive brood is
being much reduced.
Child Health Week.
For the week beginning next Mon-
day, June 18th, the Red Cross health
center will be open every afternoon
from 1 o’clock until 5, where babies |
and children up to the sixth year may
be taken to be weighed and measured
by a nurse and then subjected to a
careful physical examination by one of
the physicians in attendance from 3
to 3:30.
One out of every four children en-
ters the public school with physical
defects which should have been eor-
rected in the pre-school age. Health
week is to help parents find the weak-
nesses and defects in their children—
| as soon after birth as may be—that
: they may be more easily corrected.
| Treatment will not be given. Those
| children needing attention will be re-
' ferred to their family doctors.

Telegraph Operator Saves Child's
John W. Saxton, telegraph opera-
tor at the Unionville station of the P.
R. R., jumped into the hero class last
Friday afternoon when he saved the
life of two year old Andrew Robinson,
son of John Robinson, a trackman,
near the Unionville signal tower.
The Lehigh-Pennsylvania express
was a few minutes late and the engi-
neer was endeavoring to make up lost
tim. It was just 3:35 o’clock and the
heavy train was within five or six hun-
dred feet of the tower when Saxton
i saw-the child leave its home and tod-
dle toward the railroad. The child
: walked right onto the tracks. There
1 was no time to flag the train, so Sax-
i ton plunged down the tower steps ran
' to the tracks and at the risk of his
i own life, pulled the child to safety
| just as the ponderous locomotive thun-
. dered past.
