WEST. ii i
Frederick A. Reimer, of Newark, N.
., in commenting on modern road
building says, “Highway construction
development in the east has lagged far
behind the west in one important fea-
ture. Old methods, which have given
generally good results, seem to have
created a conservatism in the east
which has resulted in letting ‘good
enough’ be the determining factor in
road building, so that the use of stan-
dard specifications and plans has been
followed from year to year with no
radical changes. :
“A study of western methods re-
veals the fact that during the past ten
years, great strides have been made
in road foundation work, which, al-
though considered a radical departure
in its inception, has proved eminently
successful. The west has extensively
used in only a few widely separated
as ‘Black Base’ or asphalt concrete,
upward of fifteen million square yards
having already been laid and proved
successful. East of the Mississippi,
foundations of this type have been
used in only a few widely separated
places. Today, however, eastern con-
servatism and skepticism have been
largely overcome and there is a con-
stantly growing demand for informa-
tion concerning the many advantages
of ‘Black Base,” many places having
already specified this type of con-
struction in the work for 1923.
“The non-rigidity of ‘Black Base’
renders it practically immune to dis-
integration and destruction from
shock-impact of vehicular units.”—

Student Campers Turn Down Fried
Rattle Snake.
Fried rattle snake is usually a
tempting dish at the summer camp for
students in the forestry department of
The Pennsylvania State College. But
the Freshmen campers have turned it
down. ! :
Professor J. A. Ferguson, head of
the department, is especially fond of
fried rattler and served a big one a
few days ago at the camp in Stone
Valley, Huntingdon county, ‘not far
from the college., The boys said no,
and Ferguson and the camp cook dis-
posed of the, to them, tempting mor-
sel. They claim that its flavor is sim-
ilar to that of eel meat.
The seventeen Freshmen still have
another week or so in camp, and on a
visit to the College Professor Fergu-
son said that he ‘would give them
another trial. It is said that the Soph-
omore campers in Warren county have
tried the experience with no bad ef-
fects, having been initiated to the de-
partment tradition last year. These
Penn State student campers usually
have a collection of rattlers, copper-
heads and other specimens of wild
life as a collection of pets to show
the many camp visitors.

. Names of 84,324 heroes who died
In the world war today repose in a
vault in the Allied Memorial Center in
Oakland, California. The memorial, a
majestic monument of steel and stone,
was erected on the banks of Lake Mer-
ritt, in the heart of Oakland for the
purpose of holding the names of every
Allied soldier, sailor or nurse killed in
the world war.
Dr. LeRoy F. Herrick, of Oakland,
who erected and maintains the me-
morial at his own expense, states that
In time he hopes to have the names of
every participant of the world war in
the huge vault of the Allied Memorial
Dr. Herrick stated that the Cana-
dian authorities had a complete list of
the soldier and sailor dead in his hands
on July 1, and the names were depos-
ited on July 4, with proper patriotic
services. This, the memorial found-
er stated, was a departure from the
usual method of depositing the names.
“I planned and since 1919 have car-
ried out my plan of holding patriotic
services for the depositing of names
on each Memorial day and each Arm-
istice day,” said Dr. Herrick, “how-
ever, I did not want to keep the entire
Canadian list out of the vault until
next November 11, and I broke the
rule of procedure this once.
“I do not know how long it is going
to take me to get the names of the
1,500,000 soldier dead of France. The
French war authorities have not fin-
ished compiling its list. I expect to
have the Australian and New Zealand
lists in time for next Armistice day,
but I do not know how long it will
take to get complete lists from Eng-
land, Belgium, Italy and other Allies.
“The names in the vault today are
all American, with the exception of
145 of Brazil’s war dead.”
The monument has the portraits of
Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt, and
Wilson carved on the four sides, and
is topped by an eagle. Dr. Herrick, a

——“John,” said the teacher, “if
coal is selling at $6 a ton and you pay
your dealer $24, how many tons will
he bring you?”
“A little over three tons, ma’am,”
returned Johnny, promptly.
“Why Johhny that isn’t right,” cor-
rected the teacher.
“Na, ma’am, I know it ain’t,” said
Johnny, “but they all do it.”
That Morning Lameness
If you are lame every morning, and
suffer urinary ills, there must be a
cause. Often it’s weak kidneys. To
strengthen the weakened kidneys and
avert more serious troubles, use
Doan’s Kidney Pills. You can rely on
Bellefonte testimony.
Mrs. H. W. Johnson, Valentine St.,
Bellefonte, says: “I have used Doan’s
Kidney Pills whenever my kidneys
troubled me. I had attacks with my
kidneys and felt so miserable with
backache I could hardly get up on my
feet. Mornings when I came down
stairs I was so lame I couldn’t raise
my feet to go up the steps again. My
kidneys were disordered and annoyed
me a great deal. Doan’s Kidney Pills
from Runkle’s drug store soon put an
end to my suffering and rid me of the
aches and pains. I depend on Doan’s
now when my kidneys get out of or-

simply ask for a kidney remedy—get
