BELLEFONTE KIWANIANS TO
HEAD HOSPITAL DRIVE.
To Exemplify Their Motto of “Do
Something Worthwhile for the
Community” the New Belle-
fonte Kiwanis Has made a
At the second weekly luncheon of
the Kiwanians of Bellefonte, held at
the Brockerhoff house on Tuesday,
that organization, comprising virile
representatives of every profession
and business in the community, voted
unanimously to get back of the drive
for $100,000 for the Bellefonte hos-
The object of Kiwanis is communi-
ty welfare; unselfish interest and help
for everything worth while.
The society meets once a week when
its members get together for an hour
at noon to discuss, over their lunch-
eon, things that are of benefit to all
and means of promoting them. And
the record of other cities reveals that
when Kiwanis puts its seal of approv-
al on an undertaking it is something
that is for the good of all and it is
something that should be put through.
At the Tuesday meeting forty-six of
the fifty-seven members were present.
The guests were John S. Dale, of
State College; J. Will Mayes, of How-
ard; H. K. Alexander, of Unionville;
R. C. Blaney, the new county farm
agent; Charles Foote, of the Ameri-
can Lime and Stone company; Paul J.
Reber, of the Titan Metal Co., and
Clarence Williams, of the Potter-Hoy
Judge Henry C. Quigley: was the
speaker for the meeting. He suggest-
ed that the drive for the hospital of-
fered Kiwanians a most opportune
means to justify their organization
and exemplify their motto. He pro-
posed that the organization assume
responsibility for the success of the
drive and throw itself enthusiastically
and unselfishly into the movement.
The proposal met with instant re-
sponse. Kiwanians Downes, Walker,
Crawford, Emerick, Ard, Maynard
and Toner arose to heartily support
the proposal of Judge Quigley and
then there was a rising vote that vol-
untarily pledged every member to go
the limit in work and giving to make
a Kiwanis success of its first great
The general plan is to work in co-
operation with the hcspital board in
every section of the county except
that portion which the Chamber of
Commerce of State College has vol-
unteered to take care of and to help
there if the College committee should
in any way desire assistance. In oth-
er words, Kiwanis is going to lay it-
self to the task of raising all of the
allotments outside of that set for the
State College district.
It is a wonderfully worthy move-
ment and every one should rally to
help Kiwanis put it over.
The State convention of Kiwanians
will be held in Williamsport next
Frank M. Mayer Buys Mill of Ulsh
The deal was closed last Friday
whereby Frank M. Mayer, of Roops-
burg, became the purchaser of the
Ulsh & Bashoar mill property in
Bellefonte. While the price paid and
the details of the purchase have not
been made public Mr. Ulsh is author-
ity for the statement that the deal
was just as advantageous to them as
the offer they had made the borough
of Bellefonte to take over the proper-
ty, and had the additional attraction
of having only one man to deal with.
The mill in question was purchased
by Ulsh & Bashoar from G. M. Gam-
ble less than a year ago for $50,000,
and their reason for selling so soon is
to go to Baldwinsville, N. Y., where
they have closed a deal for a much
larger mill which will enable them to
do an entirely wholesale business.
When Messrs. Ulsh and Bashoar de-
cided to sell their property here they
offered it to the borough as a power
station for pumping water and also
putting in a plant to furnish electric-
ity to light the streets of the town.
The matter has been before council
since the begining of the year, but
there were so many questions involv-
ed, both favorable and unfavorable,
that no decision had been reached in
the matter, and Mr. Mayer finally de-
cided to buy the plant. The latter has
been operating the Brockerhoff mill,
at Roopsburg, the past four years,
and has established a reputation as a
high class custom miller.
Irvin Gray Released from Western
Irvin G. Gray, convicted in the Cen-
the county courts in 1918 on a grave
charge and sent to the western peni-
tentiary at Pittsburgh, was released
on February 14th, and is now at his
old home in Halfmoon township where
he will devote his time to farming
and raising stock, making the latter
occupation a specialty. Mr. Gray is
compelled to use a crutch as the result
of injuries sustained while an inmate
of the Pittsburgh institution.
New Chaplain at Rockview.
The Detroit News, in its issue of
February 16th, stated that with his
sermons the following day Rev. C. J.
Krahnke, would complete his work in
that city, having resigned to go to
Bellefonte as chaplain of the new
western penitentiary at Rockview.
Rev. Krahnke had been in charge of
the Lutheran city missionary work in
Detroit the past two years, and his
work included holding services at the
county jail, the house of correction
and the women’s detention home.
Sheep and Wool Growers Hold Annual
The three sheep and wool growers’
associations in Centre county com-
bined in holding their annual meetings
in the grand jury room in the court
house, last Saturday morning. At
the business meeting reports were
presented which showed that the sheep
industry in Centre county is now on a
better paying basis than ever before.
While there has been no very marked
increase in the number or size of the
flocks in the county growers are giv-
ing more attention to the breed and
particularly to the wool crop. Fleeces
are now cleaned and graded and the
result is the farmers are receiving
about ten cents a pound more for their
wool than they did when they market-
ed it in a haphazzard way.
The Bellefonte association elected
as officers for the ensuing year Harry
Harter, president, and W. C. Smeltz-
er, secretary and treasurer.
The Spring Mills association elect-
ed R. P. Campbell president, and J. W.
Evans, secretary and treasurer.
The Pine Grive Mills association
elected I. 0. Campbell president, and
S. M. Hess secretary and treasurer.
Following the business meeting all
the members, thirty-four all told, ad-
journed to the Brockerhoff house
where they had luncheon at the con-
clusion of which the gathering merg-
ed into a post-prandial meeting and
the wool growers had the pleasure of
listening to very good talks on the
industry by W. B. Connell, sheep ex-
tension specialist, and E. J. Walters,
agronomy extension specialist, both of
State College; Dr. Henry Turner, of
the State bureau of animal husband-
ry, Harrisburg, and E. S. Boyer, a
sheep growing enthusiast, of Altoona.
R. C. Blaney, the new county farm
agent, was present and urged the
farmers to call upon him in any emer-
gency and he will always render any
Rev. Steely Returned to Bellefonte.
The annual conference of the Unit-
ed Evangelical church closed in New-
berry on Monday with the announce-
ments of the various appointments
and the many friends of Rev. Reed O.
Steely will be glad to know that he
has been returned to the Bellefonte
church. During the years that he has
been here he has accomplished a won-
derful work in upbuilding his church.
In fact he has increased both the
congregation and the Sunday school
in such numbers that the present edi-
fice is not large enough to accommo-
date them, and only recently the con-
gregation launched a building pro-
gram which they hope to complete
the coming year which will greatly
improve their property and give them
ample seating caacity. This probably
had something to do with Rev. Steely
being returned, although a unanimous
request was sent to conference by the
congregation asking that he be sent
back. The only new assignments in
Centre county were at State College,
Rev. J. F. Hower being sent there,
and at Rebersburg, where Rev. W. H.
Warburton was assigned.
The National Trio.
Another evening of real worth-
while pleasure is promised by the Na-
tional Trio, which comes to Bellefonte
as the sixth number of the Lyceum
course. This entertainment promises
to be equal to any of the five splendid
numbers which have been presented
during the winter.
The program is unique, while the
personnel of the company has been
carefully chosen. Two short plays,
“The Man from Indiana,” and “The
Way Out,” will be given by this de-
lightful trio. These are plays of real
heart interest and are presented by
artists of experience and thorough
schooling. The players are musicians
as well as actors, and as a prelude
and interlude to the plays there will
be music of such character as to lend
atmosphere to them.
This entertainment will be given at
the court house on Monday evening,
March 17th, at 8:15 o’clock. Admis-
sion, 75 cents. No reserved seats.
Farm Agent Robinson Quits.
Mr. J. N. Robinson, Centre county
Farm Bureau agent for the past four
years, has resigned his position ef-
fective March 15th. His successor,
Mr. Ralph C. Blaney, has been on the
job since March 1st. Mr. Blaney
comes to Centre county highly rec-
ommended, having graduated in ani-
mal husbandry at Penn State in 1922,
and having had nearly two years pre-
vious experience as county agent in
Delaware county, Pennsylvania.
Mr. Robinson wishes to take this
opportunity to express his apprecia-
tion for the co-operation of the far-
mers and the many others who have
helped to make the work successful
in the past. It is always rather hard
to get acquainted in a large county
such as Centre, so it will help Mr.
Blaney very much if the farmers will
make themselves acquainted with him
as much as possible, and feel free to
call on him at any time for any as-
sistance they may need.
Major Lynn G. Adams, head of the
Pennsylvania State constabulary, will
come to Bellefonte today and this
evening, at a mass meeting in the
court house, will tell what the state
police are doing in the way of law en-
forcement. Major Adams has the
reputation of being an interesting and
convincing talker and should be greet-
ed by a large audience. The meeting
will open at 8:15 o'clock. No admis-
sion but a collection will be lifted to
' pay expenses.
Beautiful Home of John McCoy De-
stroyed by Fire.
The beautiful and commodious
home of John McCoy, on west Curtin
street, was destroyed by fire last Fri-
day evening, only the gaunt and
ghost-like brick walls standing as
grim sentinels over the ruins. The
origin of the fire has not been deter-
mined. Going out into the yard
shortly after seven o'clock Mr. Mec-
Coy, was astonished to discover the
roof of the house to be on fire. It was
only a small blaze at the time and he
ran into the house and sent a call to
the telephone exchange to send in an
In some way the alarm become mis-
understood, as both fire companies
rushed to the court house, believing
that building was the seat of the fire.
This naturally caused a delay of five
or ten minutes and gave the fire a
good start. When the firemen learn-
ed where the fire was they made a
hurried trip to Curtin street and
quickly coupled up to the fire plugs
there. But, unfortunately, the pipe
line there is only four inches in size
and the pressure and flow of water
was insufficient to feed the pumpers,
so that they were compelled to shift
their base of operations to Linn
street, which necessitated the laying
of several thousand feet of hose lines,
and by the time that was accomplish-
ed the fire had burned down to the
Catching on the roof enabled the
family, with the assistance of a large
force of volunteer workers, to remove
most of their personal effects and fur-
niture, but the house is completely
ruined. - All the woodwork was burned
and the walls so badly bulged by the
heat that they will have to be torn
‘down and rebuilt. While the fire sup-
posedly started from a spark on the
roof Mr. McCoy is confident that it
did not come from the chimneys of
his house, as his furnace fire was
banked and very little fire in the
kitchen range. His house was insur-
ed for $10,000 and his furniture, etc.,
for $5,000, which will cover the great-
er portion of his loss.
Mr. McCoy appreciates greatly the
help rendered him by his neighbors
and friends who helped so much in
salvaging the furniture from the
house. It was a period of too great
stress for him to recognize them all
so that he wishes this to be grateful
acknowledgment of their kindness.
The Bellefonte firemen have been
called out several times since the
above disastrous fire, but in each case
it was only a burning flue and their
services were not required. The first
time was on Saturday, to the home of
Harry Alters, on east Beaver street;
again on Monday to a residence on
Pine street, and the last time, on
Wednesday evening, to the home of
Earl C. Musser, on west Curtin street.
The Third Annual Auto Show Attract-
ing Many Visitors.
‘The _third-annual show of the Cen-
tre County Automobile Dealer’s asso-
ciation opened in the armory here, on
Wednesday afternoon, and will contin-
ue until tomorrow night at 10:30.
Twenty-two of the dealers and their
associates in the county have on dis-
play the various models, closed and
open, of the twenty-six makes of cars
While the attendance on the open-
ing day was not quite as large as it
was on the corresponding day of last
year, due very likely to the snowy
roads, interest in the new models was
none the less and within an hour after
the doors were thrown open one deal-
er reported a cash sale.
The show this year is under the di-
rection of Herbert Beezer and Gideon
Payne and a glimpse of the interior
is all that is needed to convince one
that they have done their work well.
The decorations are in purple and old
gold, the Association colors, and
thousands of yards of it have been
used to conceal the unsightly roofing
support and form a striking canopy
over the display sections. The music
and announcement stand has been
taken from the centre of the floor and
elevated at the side so that all of the
space has been devoted to show room.
The Nittany Nine orchestra of State
College furnished the music for the
opening evening. Yesterday Hill's
orchestra, of Bellefonte, and the Nit-
tany Nine alternated. This afternoon
the American Legion orchestra will
play and tonight the Beaver Sisters,
of Altoona, will be the entertainers.
The musical features for tomorrow
«vill be furnished, afternoon and even-
ing, by the Nittany Nine and a solo-
All the Sports to the Bat.
With the big league teams flying
south and the spring training season
for baseball well advanced it is nat-
ural that Bellefonte fans should begin
to get restless about a team for the
season of 1924.
Tonight in the arbitration room of
the court house, at 8 o’clock, you are
invited to meet other enthusiasts and
help effect a permanent organization
for the management and support of a
team to represent Bellefonte.
At the present a league is not con-
templated. This meeting will be
merely to insure a team for Belle-
fonte, which could enter a league or
play independent ball.
Chicken and Waffle Supper.
The ladies of the Lutheran church
will serve a chicken and waffle supper
Thursday evening, March 20th, from
5 to 8 o'clock, in the church social
rooms. Price per plate, including
dessert, will be 75 cents.

argument before the Supreme Court
of the United States for Monday
morning, March 10th, had not been
reached up to yesterday morning. It
was “on call” for argument yesterday
with two cases ahead of it so that un-
less the first cases called were unusu-
ally long the chances are that it was
argued yesterday, as the court has
been disposing of about four cases a
day during the week.
It is not a usual procedure for the
Supreme Court to dispose of an ac-
tion from the bench, though it is
sometimes done. If it is not done in
this case, after argument, it is only
conjecture as to when the decision will
be handed down. The nature of the
case, however, insures that the deci-
sion will take priority over others re-
garded as less affected by delay and
will probably be rendered soon.
The Supreme Court is scheduled to
adjourn on Monday until April 7th.

tised as carrying twenty-four people,
including pretty girls, funny come-
dians and clever dance artists. The
Bob Ott company has received very
favorable press notices wherever it
has appeared, and as this is the first
musical comedy company to play an
engagement in Bellefonte in a num-
ber of years their appearance will
likely be greeted with crowded hous-
es. Prices, 35—75 cents, plus tax.
Capt. Fry on the Road to Wellville.
Capt. William H. Fry has so far
withstood the shock of the serious op-
eration he underwent ten days ago in
the Bellefonte hospital so splendidly
that all doubt as to his permanent re-
covery seems removed.
He is coming back to his old self
fast and is cheerful and hopeful as a
mortal could be under the -circum-
stances. Just now his room has the
fragrance of spring because his Sun-
day school class in the Presbyterian
church at Pine Grove Mills sent him
a great bunch of daffodils, carnations,
jonquils and other spring flowers.
——The auditors’ statement of the
receipts and expenditures of Centre

in this issue of the “Watchman,” and
inasmuch as every taxpayer is inter-
ested in knowing just how his money
is spent, a careful perusal of the
statement will enlighten him or her.
