A man never knows what he can do
until he has tried, and it is better to
try than never to do at all, or be short
that much wisdom; for you may just
lack that schooling to enable you to
be a success at something else.
The Lutheran congregation cele-
brated the Lord’s Supper on Sunday
evening. Rev. Wagner, the pastor, is
a very able and conservative man and
is highly regarded by his congrega-
tion and the community in general.
Since 1913 wheat has advanced six-
teen per cent. flour thirty-nine per
cent., and bread fifty-five per cent. in
price. No wonder some of our far-
mers become discouraged. It’s surely
enough to dishearten not only the far-
mer but the consumer as well.
John Herman and wife, of Phila-

Mrs. John Herman, at the Gap.

Our practical and popular painter
and paper hanger, Jack Noll, just

The transformation is truly wonder-

compares favorably with any new
residence in the borough. J ack is

Miss Jean Noll, a nurse in train-
ing in the Polyclinic hospital in Phil-
adelphia, was a guest at the Over-
brook school for the blind at a dance
recently, with a lot of other nurses.
On a recent occasion Miss Noll aided
in entertaining a number of blind men
at one of the nurses’ homes. One ar-
ticle on the menu was a Centre county
chicken prepared by Jean's mother,
Mrs. Jack Noll.
Miss Davis, teacher of our interme-
diate school, was married on Satur-

entire school, fully equipped with
utensils of every conceivable descrip-
tion adapted to making a noise, greet-
ed her on her arrival at her school
room and proceeded to give her one of
the Gap’s old-time serenades. The
kids had a hilarious time. Miss Da-
vis rather enjoyed the ceremony.
Paul Keller and wife, with their fas-
cinating little daughter Betty, of Phil-

head pushers at the Broad Street sta-

stationed at Altoona for a number of
years but was transferred to the Phil-

worker, is making good and is appar-

The hospital drive is almost com-

to our population. I was just think-

women, could be formed and each pay

over to the hospital, say on June 1st |
and January 1st, a stipulated amount,
a movement of this character would
for all time make our hospital self-

not be beholding to outside influence.
I sincerely believe that this project
could be successfully organized; thus
eliminating future drives.
If the lesson imposed on American
humanity through the fearful deaths
of wood alcohol drinkers is rightly in-
terpreted and heeded, the price paid
by the country for such a cruelly
stressed example of combined crime
and folly will not have been vainly
given. Eight deaths from drinking
wood alcohol were reported in one day
in Toledo, Ohio, ten days ago and the
returns are not all in. In years to
come, when prohibition has grown to
be a second nature, and the novelty of
its evasion has worn off, our children
and their children will probably look
back on this distastrous fling of spu-
rious gaiety in wonderment. But to-
day the facts are too new and tragedy
too impressively recent to permit of
anything but a heartfelt prayer that
nothing like this can happen again.
Whether the miscreants are ever
rounded up the most effective preven-
tive will undoubtedly be the wide-
spread exposure of the danger incur-
red in imbibing illicit liqour. After
this disclosure of victims it will re-
quire a desperate thirst for any one
to risk drinking, they know not what.
It must be remembered that outside
the possibility of reckless use of wood
alcohol on a large scale there is just
as much danger from amateur opera-
tions on a smaller scale, so that “boot-
leg” liquor must be eschewed. It was,
perhaps, inevitable that with the com-
ing of prohibition unscrupulous per-
sons might have been expected to re-
sort to all kind of subterfuges to reap
a harvest. It may be charitably as-
sumed that the shipments which caus-
ed so many deaths were made in ig-
norance of their fatal possibilities,
but in dealing with those who are
cheating the law, the safeguards and
protection of the law cannot be ex-
pected. It can only be hoped that this
terribly costly lesson will save the
lives of thousands hereafter. Take
your uncle Levi’s advice and be satis-
fied with the free use of that best and
healthiest of all drinks, good, pure,
sparkling water. :

Many Parents Join State College
More than 1000 parents of the stu-
dents enrolled at The Pennsylvania
State College have joined the Associa-
tion of Parents of Penn State and
twice that many are expected when
the annual meeting is called on the
morning of May 3, the annual “Fath-
ers’ Day” celebration at Penn State.
The organization of local county
units of the Parents’ Association was
urged by Dr. John M. Thomas, presi-
dent of the college, in his letter of in-
vitation to more than 3000 fathers to
attend the outing on the campus. In
several counties fathers of students
have offered aid in local organization
work, and this phase is expected to
boom during the next year. This
Penn State parent group is the first
of its kind organized in this country
and the coming meeting will be the
third annual for the association.

A permanent, fire-safe home can be built for from
29%, to 5%, more than one of impermanent materials.

also tell you that it is more rapid, as well as safer,
than temporary building.
