The Chevrolet car of Darius
Cole, at Coleville, was entirely de-
stroved by fire on Sunday evening.
Mr. Cole had been out for a drive and
returning home ran his car into the
garage. A few minutes later it burst
into flames but with help he was able
to push the car out of the garage.
The Bellefonte fire department was
summoned to the scene but were una-
ble to save the car although they did
keen the fire from communicating to
the garage and other buildings.
——==-Since the holiday vacation the
Bellefonte Academy has made a net
‘gain of ten in its student body and
there is a probability that this num-
ber will be increased. Twelve new
‘students entered since the first of the
‘year while two of the previous enroll-
‘ment left the institution. This is a
record never before equalled at the
Academy, and probably at no other
preparatory school in the State. There
have been years when two or three
new students would come in after the
holidays but never a time when a full
dozen entered.
Fred H. Bingman, of Pitts-
burgh, a high official in the Independ-
ent Order of Moose, was in Bellefonte
on Monday and placed his seal of ap-
proval on the purchase of the Garman
opera house building by the Belle-
foute lodge with the result that the
deal was closed that day. The Moose
will be given possession of the build-
ing in the near future so they can
make the desired changes in the front
part of the building in time to move
there by the first of April, when their
lease will expire on their present
rooms in the McClain block. It is un-
derstood that they already have sev-
era! offers to lease the opera house
after Mr. Brown’s lease expires on
April first.
“Watchman” Office Slightly Inundat-
ed by Flood on Wednesday Night.
For the first time since the enaction
of the Volstead act we were compelled
to take water on Wednesday night,
whether we wanted it or not; only in
this case it was not as a thirst
quencher but a work producer. The
water was the result of a high flood
in Spring creek, the result of Wed-
nesday’s steady downpour of rain.
But fortunately the peak was reached
before enough of the muddy liquid
seeped into the “Watchman” press
room to do any special damage, aside
from the work of cleaning out the
mud and silt yesterday morning. But
we were more fortunate than the Beat-
ty Motor company, as they got a suf-
ficient quantity of water in their boil-
er room to put out the fires. The
boiler room of the Bush house was
also flooded, but not to a depth to
cause any trouble.
High water was one of the last
things we were looking for on Wed-
nesday until a call came in over the
telephone, about three o'clock in the
afternoon, from County Commission-
er James Swabb, at Linden Hall, in-
forming us that the water there was
up to its high mark of the June flood
in 1889. Inquiry at Oak Hall and
Lemont confirmed the report of the
rapid rise in Spring creekk and by
five o'clock the water was within ten
inches of our press room floor. Then
it began to recede and dropped prob-
ably four inches, but by nine o’clock
it again began to rise and the peak
was reached at twelve o’clock. For a
brief time it looked as if the silk mill
might be flooded but fortunately the
water did not raise to a sufficient
height to do any damage there.
Bald Eagle creek was also on a
rampage and overflowed its banks at
a number of places down the valley,
but not a sufficient depth to do any
serious damage. Down below How-
ard an automobile got stuck on the
submerged road and had to be hauled
out by a team of horses, which caused
a little excitement. Buffalo run also
overflowed its banks but did no dam-
age of any consequence.
A Petition to Advance the Centre
County Bank Case Presented.
Attorneys N. B. Spangler and Har-
ry Keller were in Washington Mon-
day in attendance at the U. S. Su-
preme court.
Mr. Spangler, representing the
creditors committee of the Centre
County Banking company, presented
a petition to the court praying that
the date for the oral argument on the
three cases before that body be ad-
vanced as well as consolidated.
The petition was presented in court,
but there was no comment from the
bench other than to direct that it be
filed, so that nothing definite is known
as to what action the court may take
as to it. The Supreme court is rather
chary of advancing cases, but since
Mr. Keller, representing the other
side of the controversy, filed no ob-
jections to advancement, in fact they
virtually joined in the petition, it is
thought there is a fair chance of its
being granted.
If it should be granted some idea
as to the probable date might be had
from the fact that while the local at-
torneys were in court cases for which
there had already been petitions for
advancement bresented. were being
advanced to the middle of next March.
Bellefonte Fuel and Supply Co. Has
Not Been Sold.
A rumor that Gordon L. Montgom-
ery had sold his business and the
plant of the Bellefonte Fuel and Sup-
ply Co., has been on the streets for
some days. It assumed such definite-
ness on Wednesday that the name of
the purchaser was given as Howard J.
Thompson, formerly manager of the
State Centre Electric Co., and at pres-
ent in the coal mining business in
Clearfield county.
Inquiry yestcxday afternoon reveals
that the business has not been sold,
nor has the realty. They are for sale,
however, and a number of persons,
among them Winton and Son, Joe and
Arthur Thomas, Rufus Lochrie, of
Central City, and Mr. Thompson are
reported as being considering the pur-
chase of one or both.
Cast Your Ballot at the Postoffice.
The “Watchman” last week pub-
lished in full the peace plan awarded
the $100,000 Bok prize, subject, how-
ever, to a referendum vote of the pub-
lic. Copies of the plan and a ballot
have been distributed from the Belle-
fonte postoffice during the past week
and postmaster John L. Knisely has
made arrangements for the placing of
a ballot box at a convenient place in
the postoffice where all ballots can be
deposited without any expense to the
voter. The ballots will later be for-
warded to the American Peace
Award, in New York city.
Business Improving in the Lime and
Stone Industry.
The fact that the Chemical Lime
Co., which had been working for some
time on a 50 per cent. of capacity
schedule, has gone onto a two-thirds
time basis, indicates that business in
our greatest industrial enterprises is
looking up.
General manager John S. Walker,
of the Chemical, said yesterday
that prospects are very good for an
early return to full time in both lime
and stone production,
Mrs. C. D. Casebeer will be
hostess at a bridge dinner to be giv-
{en at the Brockerhoff house tonight.
— The State department of For-
ests and Waters has just completed

Bellefonte Academy Opens Basket

team opened their season with a
game in the armory last evening with
the Bucknell second team. Tomorrow
night they will play the Bloomsburg
Normal quintette on the armory floor.

less be an interesting one.

E. E. Garbrick Has Quit the Ice
On Saturday E. E. Garbrick sold his
ice route to George Kelly and has re-
tired from the cares of trying to keep
many of the families and business
places of Bellefonte cool.
He is offering his storage house and
pond at Coleville, as well as the fine
house there for sale.
Mr. Garbrick hasn’t any business in
view for the immediate future, but
later, if plans he is working on ma-
ture, he might undertake an enter-
prise that this community has been
very much in need of for a long time.
Meanwhile if any one is desirous of
going into the natural ice business:
Mr. Garbrick has the location and |
equipment to offer them as well as a
very desirable home property to offer.
Hugh Johnston to Captain Dickinson |
College Basket Ball Team.
Hugh Johnston, son of Mr. and
Mrs. J. Kennedy Johnston, of Belle-
fonte, has been elected captain of the
Dickinson College basket ball team
for the 1924 season. “Big” Johnston,
as he is known among his college
chums, pairs off with his brother,
“Eagle Eye” Johnston, in the forward
positions. The two are considered the
best forwards ever produced on the
Dickinson basket ball court.
Hugh Johnston, although scoring
only 59 points last season, has the
distinction of being the best and
strongest player on the team. It was
through his whirlwind floor work and
game playing that gave Dickinson
victory in several of last season’s
games, especially the Penn game.
The Johnston brothers took their pre-
paratory studies at the Bellefonte
High school, where they excelled in
the winter sport. Both are playing
their fourth year on the Dickinson |
"Varsity, being members of the class |
of 1924 and the Kappa Sigma frater-
Warriorsmark Postmaster Arrested
for Embezzlement.
James Earl Gunsallus, postmaster
at Warriorsmark, Huntingdon county,
has been arrested by United States
postal authorities for the alleged em-
bezzlement of $490 of the postoffice
funds. He has been held in $1000
bail for a hearing at the next session
of federal court at Scranton, which
will be in May. In the meantime
Clay Houck, of Warriorsmark, secre-
tary of the Huntingdon and Centre
County Telephone company, is in
charge of the postoffice.
The arrest of Gunsallus took place
on Tuesday of last week and follow-
ed his forced removal from office the
day previous. Officials who ordered
his arrest have not divulged to what
use he has put the money he is said
to have taken.
Gunsallus, who has been postmas-
ter at Warriorsmark for a number of
years, is married and has five small
children, none of whom is more than
thirteen years old. He lives on the
outskirts of the town and besides his
duties at the postoffice operates a
farm near there. He is about thirty-
two years old.
Runaway Boy Prefers Nomadic Life
to School.
On Christmas night, or rather in
the small hours of the following
morning, a fifteen year old boy was
found sleeping in a doorway on Alle-
gheny street, Bellefonte, and was tak-
ent to the Brant house and turned
over to the merciful kindness of Mrs.
W. W. Waddle. Following a refresh-
ing sleep and a good meal the boy told
Mrs. Waddle that he was a French
orphan without any home and no place
to go. Being bright and apparently
willing to do anything Mrs. Waddle
kept him at the hotel until Tuesday
of last week when she told him he
would have to go to school. He went
out to the High school and was ex-
amined as to his educational standing,
which was very good but on Wednes-
day he started to school and never
reached there, leaving town instead.
It now develops that school is the
nightmare in the boy’s life. His name
is Thomas Clayton Devore, and his
home Altoona. His father is dead
and his mother is an incurable patient
in the Blair county hospital. The boy
is a ward of attorney W. E. Mackey,
of Altoona, and had been a student in
the High school of that city, but evi-
dently dislikes school. He played
hookey for a week before Christmas
then disappeared and it developed
that he came to Bellefonte, having
money enough to pay his railroad fare
here but none left for lodging. He
wandered around town all day Christ-
mas and having no place to go went
to sleep in a doorway that night.
On Saturday the lad turned up at the
home of Edward G. Price, at Llys-
wen, near Altoona, where his sister,
Ruth Devore, is living.

Enthusiastic Road Meeting at Union- !
The gathering of upper Bald Ea-
gle folks and others interested in the
improvement of the highway through
that valley at Unionville, last Friday
night, indicate that interest in the
project is very general, enthusiastic
and hopeful.
It was held in the Grange hall and
called to order by H. E. Holzworth,
who presided. Representatives were
there from many parts of Centre
county, as well as from Blair.
The Hon. Thomas Beaver was the
first person called upon to speak. He
advised concerted action on the part
of every one and urged specially that
it should be pointed out to the High-
way Department that the Valley road
is a short route and has a water
grade. It is a short route, not only
as connecting distant points, but for
six months of the year a decidedly
advantageous short route locally. An
instance that came to our attention
last Friday will illustrate this. A
Philipsburg business man had to come
to Bellefonte. Naturally his most di-
rect and best route was to Port and
down the valley road. Learning that
the latter was badly cut up by freez-
ing and thawing he had to come by
way of the concrete road to Bald Ea-
| gle, Tyrone and State College; adding
about forty miles to the distance and
putting two hours more in on the road
than would have been necessary had
route 107 been in good condition.
Robert F. Hunter spoke next giving
his experience in building roads over
a period of about twenty-five years.
He said: Good roads indicate a high
degree of civilization and that entire
links should be built with the least
possible delay. :
The next speaker was John Payne
who suggested that everybody put his
or her shoulder to the wheel and push
for a concrete road, as any other kind
would be false economy. He thought
that a permanent highway was es-
pecially essential as a sure and speedy
way of getting school children to and
from their High schools.
W. E. Williams, of Port Matilda, re-
counted the preliminary steps they
had already taken in their communi-
ty and expressed the belief that there
was no individual or interest antago-
“nistic to the movement.
Grant Hoover, of Williamsport,
was called upon and emphasized the
importance of the valley road as a
connecting link between the Susque-
hanna Trail and the Lakes to the Sea
Highway. He also commended the
great work in road-building that has
been done during the last ten years.
Then the veteran George W. Rum-
berger took the floor and recounting
some campaign speeches made at Un-
ionville within recent years suggested
that those politicians who had made
the promises should now be called up-
on to make good by helping along
with the work.
Prothonotary Roy Wilkinson gave
the information that engineers are
now at work re-routing the road so as
to eliminate the dangerous railroad
crossings east and west of Julian.
General discussion of proper ways
and means to proceed followed the
formal speeches and a start was made
to provide funds necessary for ex-
ploitation of the project.
The consummation of it all was that
a committee composed of Hon. Harry
B. Scott, Hon. Thomas Beaver, C. O.
Miller, Howard E. Holzworth and L.
G. Green, was appointed to confer
with the Highway Department and
ascertain what the chances are for
permanent improvement of the road
and an early start on the work.
Bellefonte and Philipsburg are vi-
tally interested in route 107. That is
the part that runs from here to Port.
Sixteen miles of construction would
complete it; giving Philipsburg the
shortest route possible to the county

During this period, the nurse de-
voted part of the time to visiting
schools and the results are worth con-
sideration. She inspected 174 pupils
and, by reference to last medical in-
spection records, found eighty-two of
these had had physical defects discov-
ered and reported to parents. Fol-
lowing these defective cases into the
homes, she found only seventeen out
of the eighty-two had had defects cor-
rected. These defects were of the
eyes, teeth, nose, throat and skin.
Parents today cannot excuse them-
selves on the ground of not knowing
that their children have physical de-
fects since that is the reason for med-
ical inspection in schools. It is mon-
ey and time wasted, however, unless
parents are interested enough to have
the defects corrected. The Red Cross
service is ready to help, in any way
