Bellefonte, Pa., January 4, 1924.
— How many times this week
have you forgotten to write it 19247?
A little son was born to Mr.
and Mrs. Joseph Kane, of Potter
street, on Monday.
This is leap year and the wary
bachelor will have to tread the
straight and narrow path:
Mrs. Frank D. Lee, of Centre
Hall, has been critically ill all week
as the result of a stroke of paralysis
sustained on Wednesday of last week.
The Rev. M. B. Gurley, of the
First church of Germantown, will
preach in the Presbyterian church in
Bellefonte, Sunday, both morning and
evening. All members of this congre-
gation are especially urged to hear
Mr. Gurley.
At the State educational con-
vention held in Philadelphia, last
week, Prof. Arthur H. Sloop, super-
intendent of the Bellefonte public
schools, was elected one of the dele-
gates to attend the national conven-
tion to be held in Washington, D. C,,
in July.
Mrs. John Slack, of Centre
Hall, fell in her bedroom, last Friday,
and sustained such serious injury that
she was brought to the Bellefonte
hospital on Saturday. An X-ray ex-
amination on Sunday disclosed the
fact that a small bone in her hip had
been fractured by the fall.
Chester Ingram, a negro of
Fayette county, was electrocuted at
the Rockview penitentiary on Mon-
day morning, having been convicted
of murdering George F. Riley, of
Philadelphia, a special officer in the
employ of the H. C. Frick Coal com-
pany at Edenborn, last March.
——F. W. Martin, who gave his
home as Bellefonte, was held up in
Altoona on the evening of December
20th, robbed of his purse containing
between $40 and $50, some Christmas
presents he had purchased and his
car, in which the bold highwaymen es-
caped. So far as known the robbers
have not been apprehended.
——About fifty couples attended
the first assembly of the Penn-Centre
chapter Order of DeMolay, held in
the Bush Arcade hall last Friday
evening. The affair was such a pleas-
ant event that the members antici-
pate holding others during the year.
‘The chapter’s membership now num-
‘bers 136, and their meetings are held
in the Masonic temple.
Now that the holiday season is
cover and there is nothing to attract
any unusual attention the people of
Bellefonte and vicinity can find good
entertainment at the Scenic every
evening in the week except Sunday.
If you are a movie fan be a regular
and see all the good ones; if not a
fan, get the habit and you’ll have
many an evening of pleasant pastime.
——A twelfth-night mystery play
of the Nativity of Christ will be giv-
en hy the children of St. John’s Epis-
copal Sunday school, this (Friday)
evening, in the parish house, west
Lamb street, at 8 o'clock. The pub-
lic is cordially invited. There will
‘be no admission charged, but a collec-
tion will be taken for Near East re-
lief. Those who have seen the mys-
tery play as given by the children
other years will not want to miss the
production this year.
Through a clipping from a re-
cent issue of one of the Pottstown
papers we learn of the very success-
ful work of Harry Mentzer, who was
physical trainer at the Y. M. C. A.
in Bellefonte, before going to Potts-
town. The article speaks particularly
of a Father and Son’s banquet, ar-
ranged for by Mr. Mentzer and given
to between two and three hundred
men and boys, it being the most suc-
cessful affair of its kind ever held in
that city. This is only one of the
events through which Mr. Mentzer is
making himself so popular and win-
ning for himself a place in the Y. M.
C. A. work of Pennsylvania.
We are under obligations to
Mrs. L. James, of Lake Helen, Flori-
da, for a Christmas remembrance in
the form of a delicious confection
which she is now marketing. Made
from the tender pulp of the grape-
fruit, it is crystalized into a most ap-
petizing and refreshing sweet, put up
#n attractively decorated tin boxes of
ore pound each and sent, post-paid,
anywhere, for $1.00. For evening or
afternoon entertainment, or for after-
dinner sweets nothing could be more
delicious to include among your re-
freshments. Mrs. James has many
friends in Centre county, being a
merher of the well known Brugger
fay, of Unionville,
Announcement has been made
of the wedding, over a year ago, of
Frederic Glenn Tibbens, of Johns-
town, and Miss Jeannette Evelyn
Lloyd, of Houtzdale. The ceremony
was performed Thursday, December
7, 1922, at the Presbyterian parson-
age in Houtzdale, by the Rev. John
Mitchell, D. D., witnessed by a few
relatives. The bride is a daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. William H. Lloyd, of
Houtzdale, and is a popular member
of the younger social set of that town.
The groom, who is the elder son of
Harry Ulmer Tibbens, formerly of
Bellefonte, is a graduate of the
‘Wheeling, W. Va., High school and is
a Senior at The Pennsylvania State
College in the civil engineering
course. The newlyweds will be locat-
ed at 318 Market street, Johnstown,
following the groom's graduation, un-
til definite plans for the future are
Annual Meeting of Centre County
Farm Bureau.
Notwithstanding the fact that it
rained most of the day on Saturday,
December 22nd, sixty or more farm-
ers attended the annual meeting of
the Centre county Farm Bureau and
the farm products show, held in the
court house, and all of them felt well
repaid in doing so.
At the business session in the
morning county agent J. N. Robinson
made his annual report which ron-
tained a resume of the work done dur-
ing the year which included demon-
strations in potato spraying, disease-
free seed potatoes, potato fertiliza-
tion experiment, poultry improve-
ment, corn standardization, boys and
girls potato and livestock clubs, sheep
and wool co-operative association,
cow testing association, wheat stand-
ardization, co-operation with Grange,
Centre county farmers’ co-operative
association, other farmer’s organiza-
tions as well as minor projects, calls
to farms, office calls, etc. Each pro-
ject was outlined and results obtain-
ed explained in detail after which the
meeting was thrown open to a general
discussion of various questions of in-
J. M. Campbell, of Pennsylvania
Furnace, gave an intieresting talk on
the several potato improvement pro-
jects carried on in the county and
outlined the results of several years
work, giving definite recommenda-
tions which should prove of advantage
to all potato growers.
J. S. Dale, of State College, discus-
sed the policies of the Farm Bureau
toward all farmers organizations,
telling the farmers that the bureau
is willing and anxious to co-operate
at all times in any movement that
‘will have for its object the improve-
ment of agricultural conditions. He
gave specific examples of how the bu-
reau has co-operated with the Grange
during the past year, and especially
in connection with the Grange en-
campment at Centre Hall, where it
was successful in putting across an
educational and agricultural pageant
which was later presented at the Mo-
tor Square garden, in Pittsburgh, dur-
ing the State and National Grange
Newton I. Wilson, of Halfmoon
township, talked on the value to far-
mers of the series of meetings held
throughout the county during the
winter seasons. He stated that the
people in his vicinity were well pleas-
ed and the topics discussed were prac-
tical questions in which every farmer
is interested, especially the subjects
of greater economy in the production
and marketing of crops.
Officers elected for the ensuing
vear were as follows: President, J.
M. Campbell, Pennsylvania Furnace;
vice president, J. S. Dale, State Col-
lege; secretary, J. Will Mayes, How-
ard; treasurer, W. C. Smeltzer, Belle-
fonte. The above officers, with the
county agent, will appoint the execu-
tive committee in the near future.
At the afternoon session Dr. Fitz,
of the bureau of animal industry,
Harrisburg, talked on the eradication
of tuberculosis among cattle in Penn-
sylvania, pointing out the fact that it
would mean a large increase in the
value of all herds. It would also mean
much toward health improvement of
the human family. Dr. Fitz stated
that the time is fast drawing near
when the milk consuming public will
demand assurance that their milk
comes from healthy cows. In this
connection it might be stated that the
farmers of Halfmoon township have
already inaugurated a drive to clean
up the entire township, if any affect-
ed cattle are found. A meeting look-
ing toward this end was held in the
Grange hall, at Stormstown, on Wed-
nesday evening of this week.
The closing talk was made by F. P.
Weaver, assistant director of exten-
sion, on farm price levels. He pointed
out how farmers can use crop reporis
and available statistics to assist them
in regulating the quantity or -reage
of any given crop, and the best time
to market the same.
The farm products show held in the
grand jury room was not as large as
in former years but some very good
qualities of produce and fruit were on
exhibition, Prizes were awarded as
Eggs, white—1st and 2nd, Mrs. H. K.
Mattern; 3rd, C. E. Close.

Hecla Park Sold Again.
William C. Rowe has disposed of
Hecla park, Centre county’s popular
picnic grounds, to A. F. Hockman, of
that place. During the two years Mr.
Rowe was the owner of the park he
made quite a number of improvements
which added greatly to its attractive-
ness as a summer resort for picnick-
ers and evening dances. The price
paid was $12,000, and the new owner
will probably continue it as a pleas-
ure resort.

Penn State Athletes to be Guests of
Honor at Banquet,
The Penn State club, of Philadel-
phia, of which Charles C. Hildebrand
is president, will give a testimonial
luncheon at the Adelphi hotel, Phila-
delphia, on Saturday, January 19th,
at which the guests of honor will in-
clude coach Hugo Bezdek and the fol-
lowing State athletes: Bedenk and

Clyde and George Gray Paroled from
At the December meeting of the
State Board of Pardons Clyde and
George Gray were both paroled from
the western penitentiary in the cus-
tody of Grant Hoover, of Williams-
port, and were released the Saturday
before Christmas. The Gray case,
which was tried ‘at the December term
of court, 1918, created considerable in-
terest and both being convicted they
were sentenced in two cases to an ag-
gregate of not less than five years
nor more than six, to date from Feb-
ruary, 1919. Both men had thus al-
most completed their minimum sen-
tence and their parole in the custody
of Grant Hoover will mean that they
will be obliged to report to him until
automatically released by the expi-
ration of the time of their sentence.
Mrs. Rachel Harris Victim of Train
Mrs. Rachel Harris, who went to
Johnstown on Monday for a visit with
her daughter, Mrs. John Van Pelt and
family, was the victim of an accident
on the train just as it was pulling in-
to the Johnstown station and as a re-
su.t will likely be laid up for some
time as the result of her misfortune.
Mrs. Harris, who is afflicted with
rheumatism, was standing in the aisle
of the Pullman waiting to alight at
the station when the quick halting of
the car threw her to the floor. She
had left her seat before the car stop-
ped and with the aid of a cane had
made her way to the front of the
She was carried into the station and
given medical treatment by Dr. J. S.
Taylor, who took her to the home of
her daughter, Mrs. J. L. Van Pelt, of
Somerset Pike, where it was found
she was suffering with a fracture of
the left thigh bone.
“Santa Claus” Badly Burned on
Gregg Curtin who, on Christmas
morning was playing Santa Claus in
the distribution of baskets and gifts
from the W. C. T. U. headquarters
in Petrikin hall, was painfully burned
on both hands and wrists when his
Kris Kingle regalia caught fire from
the spark of a match. The accident
happened in the W. C. T. U. room,
while he was assisting several ladies
in preparing the baskets for delivery.
He struck a match to light a cigar-
ette and a live spark fell onto the
fluffy cotton trimming of his bright
red coat. The trimming caught fire
and had it not been for the quick
work of the ladies in smothering the
flames with their coats Mr. Curtin
would undoubtedly have been far
more seriously burned. Notwithstand-
ing the burns on his hands, however,
he continued his work as Santa Claus

New County Officers Will be Sworn in {
Next Monday.
The new county officials will be
sworn into office next Monday morn-
ing and their induction will mean al-
most an entire change in county offi-
cials, the only exceptions being Roy
Wilkinson, re-elected prothonotary,
and Harry P. Austin, who will be the
minority member of the board of
county commissioners. At a meeting
of the commissioners-elect the Satur-
day before Christmas, they made the
following appointments:
Chief clerk—S. Claude Herr.
Assistant clerk—Miss Marie Doll.
County solicitor—S. D. Gettig.
County physician—Dr. W. U. Irwin.
Court house janitor—John Benner.
Firemin—George Harpster.
Mr. Herr was a candidate at the
recent election for prothonotary but
was defeated by a narrow margin by
Mr. Wilkinson. For a number of
years past he has been the senior
member of the firm of Herr & Hev-
erley, but has arranged for the dis-
posal of his interest to Mr. Heverley
so that he will have no outside inter-
ests to detract from his service as
chief clerk. He is efficient, courteous
and accommodating and the new com-
missioners are to be commended upon
their choice. In fact ‘he same good
judgment prevailed in all their ap-
Sheriff Harry Dukeman has already
moved most of his furniture and per-
sonal effects to his new home on south
Water street and the new sheriff, E.
R. Taylor, will move to the jail from
Howard street early Monday morning,
where he will take charge with John
L. Dunlap as his deputy.
Register Harry A. Rossman will re-
tain the services of Miss Geraldine
Bilger while Recorder Lloyd A. Sto-
ver will be assisted by his daughter,
Miss Madeline Stover. J. O. Hever-
ly, the new county treasurer, will have
the assistance for several months, at
least, of the present deputy treasur-
er, Miss Verna Chambers.
The new county auditors will also
be sworn into office next Monday and
will begin their work of auditing the
county accounts for the year 1923.
The First National Bank the Pioneer
in Profit Sharing.
In view of the general practice of
profit sharing now in force, it is a
matter of peculiar interest that one
of our local institutions, the First Na-
tional Bank, was probably the first
institution of its kind in the United
States to adopt a profit sharing plan
for the benefit of its employees.
In January, 1908, sixteen years ago,
the board of directors of this bank
put in force a plan by which, at each
dividend period, a certain percentage
of the net earnings was distributed
to its clerks. The plan has been in
successful operation ever since and
results in a substantial increase of
salary, dependent on the earnings for
the period.
At the time of its adoption the
idea was novel. Correspondence with
leading financial journals was had
with the view of learning the best
method. The replies indicated that,
so far as was known, no plan was in
operation providing for regular and
systematical profit sharing.
Since that time distributions on
practically the lines then laid down
have become the general practice.
The thirty-second semi-annual dis-
tribution will be made by the First
National bank this week.
Forged Check to Buy a Ring for
James E. Allen, the twenty year
old youth of State College, who passed
a forged check at the D. I. Willard &
Son store about ten days before
Christmas, was captured in Altoona
on Wednesday evening of last week
and is now under bail for his appear-
ance for trial at the February term
of court.
Prior to passing the worthless check
in Bellefonte Allen dealt in high
finance at State College. At the
Crabtree jewelry store he purchased a
diamond ring as a Christmas present
for his sweetheart, giving in payment
a bogus check for $62.50 and receiv-
ing $32.50 in ‘change. He also nego-
tiated a worthless check at the Twen-
tieth Century shoe store. State Col-
lege authorities knew the young man
had a sweetheart in Altoona and no-
tified the authorities there to be on
the lookout for him. They were, and
nabbed him at the young woman's
home. He was brought back to Cen-
tre county but was able to give bail
for his appearance at court.
Escaped Prisoner Recaptured.
Herman Beagler, one of the prison-
ers who escaped from the Rockview
penitentiary last June, was recaptur-
ed at Nant-y-Glo, Cambria county, on
December 21st, and brought to the
Centre county jail the following day.
Beagler was sent up from Clearfield
county for from four to ten years for
felonious assault and had less than a
year of his minimum sentence to serve
when he escaped. When called before
Judge Quigley for sentence on De-
cember 26th the court told him that he
had no discretionary power, and un-
der the law was compelled to impose
the same sentence he had originally
received for escaping, but if he had a
good record at the penitentiary at the
would join in an ap
plication for a pardon for him.

with a large iron manufacturing company
at Letonia.
—Mr. M. C. Haines, of Rebersburg, was

pleasure was given the Bellefonte people
during their stay among them, through
their elder son, Arthur Jr., whose voice is

in Bellefonte.
—A motor party from State College that

had been so long since we have seen him
that the visit was a genuine pleasure; es-
pecially since we saw at once that he is in

ten so contented with life at State College,
however, that he doesn’t come to Belle-
fonte nearly as often as his friends here
would like to see him.
