Red Cross Nursing Service
be Discontinued?
The annual Red Cross roll call will
begin November 4th and continue for
one week, ending November 11th. It
was decided to hold the roll call in
October but, since there are several
entertainments for the hospital dur-
ing this month, the Red Cross com-
mittee selected the date above an-
nounced. Hardman P. Harris has
| Shall Our
charge, of the roll call and’ will soon’
publish a list of his helpers for the
| different sections of the town. It
, must be remembered that not a cent
“collected for the Japanese relief went
' to the Red Cross and if the nursing
| service is to be continued, at least
' sixteen hundred dollars must be col-
lected. At the close of the war there
|'was a surplus in the Red Cross treas-
ury which, with the amounts collected
‘in the annual drives, has financed the
nursing service for three years and a
half. That surplus is now exhausted
and only enough money remains to
continue the service through this
year. The question for us, as a com-
munity, is whether or not the nurs-
ing service is worth continuing. Let
us not evade it but consider carefully
the reports published monthly and
then decide. The columns of this pa-
per are open for communications on
the subject and its discussion is earn-
estly desired by the officers and com-

Elk Will be Legal Game to Kill
This Fall.
Upwards of half a million hunters
‘go to the woods every year in Penn-
season and at least half that num-
sured of bringing down a lordly elk.
This species of game will be legal
killing this fall, from December 1st
to 15th, but the specifications require
that the animal be a male with four
or more points to one antler. Inas-
much as the elk are not very plenti-
ful, even in the regions in ‘which they
were transplanted five. years ago, the
chances of being able to kill one are
so remote that few hunters are bank-
ing on getting any.
The only worth while game that is
now in season is raccoon, and already
quite a number have been captured in
Centre county. But the greater num-
ber of hunters are waiting for No-
vember first when squirrel, wild tur-
keys, pheasant and rabbits will come
in. Only the male bird of ringneck
pheasants can be killed, but inasmuch
as these beautiful game birds are still
quite scarce in Centre county it would
be a gracious act on the part of all
hunters to voluntarily abstain from
killing them.
The ordinary pheasant (ruffed
grouse) are said to be quite plentiful,
while various flocks of wild turkeys
have been seen on the mountains.
Rabbits are also numerous but squir-
rel hunting does not afford the sport
it did a quarter of a century ago
when various nut trees were more
plentiful. However, enough small
game will probably be found in the
woodlands to afford sport for the
small army of hunters during the
month of November, and then will
come the universal exodus to the
mountains in quest of deer, which are
reported as numerous this year as
last, when the kill in Centre county
was the largest in many years.
Golf Association Organized.
The Central Counties Golf associa-
tion of Pennsylvania was organized
by representatives of seven country
clubs in the central territory last Sat-
urday, following an invitation inter-
club tournament at the new Centre
Hills Country club, of State College.
Blairmont, of Hollidaysburg; Altoo-
na Cricket Club, Birch Hill, of Lewis-
town; Huntingdon, Tyrone, Nittany,
of Bellefonte, and Centre Hills are
the charter members. The Lock Ha-
ven, Philipsburg, and Clearfield clubs
will be invited to join the association.
The purpose of the new association
is to arrange inter-club matches on a
uniform basis, hold an annual individ-
ual and club championship tourna-
ment, and in all other ways to further
the interests of the game in Central
Pennsylvania. The business of the
association will be conducted by a
board of delegates, composed of two
representatives of each club.
At the first meeting of the board of
delegates the following officers were
elected: President, R. H. Smith, of
Centre Hills; vice president, O. C.
Skinner, of Birch Hill; secretary-
treasurer, A. R. Warnock, of Centre
Hills; chairman of the tournament
committee, L. Cannon, of the Altoona
Cricket club.

If You are Going to Gather Walnuts
—Here’s a Tip.
The fellow who said “there’s noth-
ing new under the sun” pulled that
bit of philosophy long before this age
of progress and ingenuity.
Every day some new way of doing
an old job is turning up. Alert minds
and modern devices are working to-
gether to make the burdensome jobs
of years ago a snit today.
| When a'boy we took a flour sack,
a worn out baby carriage or a wheel-
barrow and started for the hills to
gather walnuts. Being too small to
climb the large trees and too light to
shake or bump the walnuts off with
a stone, we spent most of the day
throwing clubs at the branches near-
est the ground and would come home
in the evening with a peck or so of
the nuts and a right arm so sore that
we could scarcely raise it next morn-
ing. :
The boys of today know little of
how the boys of yesterday did things.
And the boys of yesterday never
dreamed how the boys of today would
do them.
On Monday three youths were
going to Snow Shoe in a small truck.
As they neared Gum Stump one of
them noticed three walnut trees load-
ed with nuts, standing by the road-
side. They stopped the truck, made
a quick survey of the situation and
then started to back. Quicker, almost
than we can tell it, they had backed
speedily and bumped the walnut trees
with such force that the nuts fairly
rattled down. The real work, the
tiresome, tedious work of other days
that required hours, was over in a
| Jiffy and the lads jumped off, gather-
ed up the nuts and were off with half
a truck load of them before the owner.
of the trees, who had been so inter-
ested in their unusual maneuvers,
wakened up and remembered that he
had been planning to have those wal-
nuts for himself.
' Agriculture Community Days and
Potato Round-Up.
Four agriculture community days
and potato round-ups will be held in
Centre county next week, in the High
schools having a course in vocational
agriculture. The round-ups will be
preliminary exhibitions of the sum-
mer’s work of the boys’ potato clubs
in preparation for the big potato
show to be held in Bellefonte on
Thursday, October 25th, during the
week of the teachers’ institute. Each
boy will exhibit one peck of potatoes
from his project as well as his record
eas y book. The public is cordially invited
ber would be willing to forego all to attend these meetings and exhib-
other shooting if he could only be as- its, which will be held as follows:
Court house, Bellefonte, Tuesday
afternoon, October 16th, for all boys
in Nittany valley from Pleasant Gap
to Lamar, and those in Buffalo Run
valley up as far as Waddle. Prizes
of $5.00; $3.00 and $1.00 will be

hibits by the Millheim banks and cit-
izens of Haines township. :

ing, for all boys carrying potato pro-
jects in Potter, Harris, College and
Ferguson townships. Prizes by the
Business Men’s association and the
Dr. J. Finley Bell Got Photograph of
Spring Creek Trout.
Time and again amateur and, pro-
fessional photographers have tried to
take a photograph of the many big
trout in Spring creek but never suc-
cessfully accomplished the feat, and
because of this fact the “Watchman”
editor, in an item last week, rather
discouraged the idea that the mov-
ing picture operator who reeled off
several hundred feet of film for the
purpose of catching the big trout in
the creek, would get anything worth-
while for his efforts: .But this week
we received ample proof that fish in
a flowing stream can be caught by the
camera in a photograph sent us by
Dr. J. Finley Bell, of Englewood, N.
J. The picture, taken on a recent trip
to Bellefonte, includes Spring creek
above the falls and very plainly
shows three trout. In a letter accom-
panying the photograph the doctor
“I notice in your news department
that a movie photographer attempted
to photograph the trout in Spring
creek. Your reference to the matter
was one of doubt as to its success,
you stating that it had never been
done. On the morning of September
2nd, 1928, at 10 o’clock, I took a pic-
ture of Spring creek, above the falls,
which shows three trout, a print of
which I enclose. I used a reflex focal
plain shutter camera, with a Tessar
Zeist lens 4.5, stopped to 18 and speed
of one twenty-fifth of a second, and
super-speed cut films.”
——The Fire and Police committee
of borough council has secured two
“stop and go” signs, with red and
white lights, which for the present
will be used to control traffic at the
intersection of High and Spring
streets and Allegheny and Bishop
streets. The signs will be in opera-
tion only on Wednesday and Saturday
evenings when traffic is the heaviest.
All Aboard for Hallow-een and the
Harvest Queen!
. The Harvest Queen contest for the
Elk’s big Hallow-een celebration open-
ed on Wednesday morning of this
week, instead of next Monday morn-
ing, as advertised last week, and from
the interest manifested on the first
day there is every indication that
there will be some lively competition
among the girls of Bellefonte and
surrounding places for the queenship
honor. As stated in the “Watchman”
last week, the contest is not limited to
Bellefonte girls but is open to any as-
pirant in the county, and the one way
to add excitement to the enterprise is
for other towns and villages to put
their popular girls in the running.
Inasmuch as the contest has only a
little over two weeks to run it be-
hooves all entrants to not only get
busy at once but work hard until the
final vote is cast.
Capt. William H. Brown has been
chosen chief marshall of the big pa-
rade which will form at 7:30 p. m. on
Hallow-een evening, and all organiza-
tions entering in a body, or individ-
uals who intend to enter floats, are
requested to notify Capt. Brown of
their intention so to do on or before
Saturday, October 27th, so that a
proper place in the parade may be as-
signed them.
The committee has secured the
services of Achenbach’s famous nine
orchestra, of State College, to furnish
music for the big charity ball to be
given in the armory after the parade,
a fact that will please all lovers of
the dance.
¢ Inasmuch as the celebration - this
year will be given as a benefit for the
Bellefonte hospital everybody in Cen-
tre'county should lend a hand in mak-
ing it a great financial success.

sion. "A new class will probably be’
initiated the fourth Tuesday of this
month, and regularly every month

and a three act play is in prospect for
the latter part of November for the

Noted Orator to Speak in Bellefonte
on Sunday.
Hon. Clinton N. Howard, the little
giant of the American platform and
one of the most eloquent speakers in
this country, will be at St. John’s
Lutheran church Sunday morning at
10:45, and in the Methodist church at
7:30 p. m. In the morning Mr. How-
ard will take as his subject “God Re-
making the World,” and in the even-
ing will speak on “Peace Through the
Prince of Peace.”
Mr. Howard comes to Bellefonte as
the representative of the National Re-
form association, which has for its
1923 program the following objec-
tives: National obedience to Christ
as Supreme Ruler; enforcement of na-
tional prohibition; equal rights for
men and women; industrial justice;
religious education; the reading of the
Bible in the public schools; Sabbath
observance; abolition of polygamy b
constitutional amendment, and a fed-
eration of nations for world-wide

in a year than any living American,
with a possible single exception, and
is noted for his brilliant talents as a
lecturer and orator. Do not fail to
hear him Sunday.
Bellefonte High Overwhelms Phil-
In their opening game on Hughes
field, on Saturday, the Bellefonte
High school football team simply
overwhelmed the Philipsburg High
eleven, the final score being 42 to 0.
A number of Philipsburgers accom-
panied their team to Bellefonte feel-
ing confident of an easy vietory but
they never had a chance from the be-
ginning to the end of the game. The
Bellefonte boys played excellent ball
and showed splendid team work.
The Bellefonte Academy team lost
their game with the Penn Freshmen
in Philadelphia by the close score of
6 to 0. An arbitrary ruling of the
referee literally gave the Penn Fresh-
men their only score, otherwise the
game would have been a scoreless tie.
State College defeated North Car-
olina, on Beaver field, by the score of
16 to 0.
