Frank Auman Waived Trial by Jury
for Death of H. H. Gillett.
Frank Auman, the Snow Shoe town-
ship young man who, on Thursday,
April 8rd, struck truant officer Hugh
H. Gillett, of Snow Shoe, on the head
with a small hand pick inflicting an
injury which resulted in his death at
the Lock Haven hospital on April
29th, on Tuesday waived the findings
of the grand jury as well as a trial by
jury, plead guilty generally to the in-
dictment made against him and elect-
ed to have the court fix the degree of
crime after hearing the evidence in
the case. Consequently a session of
court was held on Tuesday evening
and at the clese of the testimony the
court stated that from the evidence
presented the case impressed him
very much as being one of justifiable
homicide, but inasmuch as it was one
of too grave a character to act upon
without due consideration he request-
ed the court stenographer to trans-
cribe the testimony and submit it to
him, and after thoroughly considering
it he would render his decision. In
the meantime Auman was remanded
to jail to await the action of the court.
The prosecutor in the case is Orvis
Gillett, son of the dead truant officer,
and district attorney Arthur C. Dale
was unassisted in the prosecution. N.
B. Spangler Esq., defended the pris-
oner. The first evidence given was by
the prosecutor, who testified to hav-
ing been summoned to the Stanley
Shall home because of the injury to
his father, making arrangements to
send him to the Lock Haven hospital
and preferring the charge of murder
against Auman.
Dr. Edward H. Harris, who was the
first physician in attendance describ-
ed the injury inflicted, while Dr.
Thomas, chief surgeon at the Lock
Haven hospital, gave a brief history
of the case from the time Gillett was
admitted to that institution until his
death on April 29th. He stated that
his death was the result of a brain
abscess, caused by infection, and nat-
urally directly traceable to the wound.
Katie Shall, sixteen year old daugh-
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Shall, at
whose home the trouble occurred, tes-
tified that Gillett struck Auman sev-
eral times with his hand-cuffs and
when the latter ran around the house
to get away from the truant officer he
followed, striking at him with the
handcuffs. However, she did not see
the fatal blow struck by Auman.
Mrs. Ella Josefy, who lives quite a
distance from the Shall home, testi-
fied that she saw the two men run
around the house, Auman in the lead
and Gillett striking at him. Then she
saw Auman grab what she said look-
ed like a club and hit Gillett and he
fell to the ground. Then Auman
walked out behind the barn and dis-
Constable Joseph Wade told of as-
sisting sheriff Taylor in arresting Au-
man on the afternoon of April 4th,
and of a conversation he had later
with the defendant in the Centre
county jail in which the latter stated
that nobody else was engaged in the
fight but he and Gillett.
Mrs. Shall, through an interpreter,
told about Gillett coming to their
home with a warrant for her husband
for delinquency in not sending the chil-
dren to school, and ordering him to go
to Snow Shoe at once. That he and
two other men who had been served
with similar warrants started for
Snow Shoe and Gillett stayed there
talking to herself and daughter.
Frank Auman was in her home at the
time and he came out onto the porch
and said only a few words to Gillett
when the latter struck him with the
handeuffs. She didn’t know what they
said as she cannot understand Eng-
lish. The two men scuffled a minute
or two then Auman ran around the
house with Gillett after him wielding
his handcuffs. She did not see Au-
man hit Gillett. This was the bulk of
the Commonwealth’s evidence.
Attorney Spangler, for the defense,
called to the stand Mr. Shall who
stated that Gillett came there on the
afternoon in question and served the
warrant on him telling him to go at
once to Snow Shoe. Warrants had
been served on two other men near-
by and the three of them left at once,
supposing Gillett to be following
them. When several hundred yards
from the house one of the men looked
back and saw Gillett lying in the
snow at the side of the house, then
all returned and assisted in taking
care of the injured man. He didn’t
see any of the fight.
In his own defense Auman, who
stated that he is twenty-five years old,
said that he was at the Shall home
and when Mrs. Shall went out onto
the porch he followed. Gillett was
there talking to Katie about not at-
tending school. He simply knew Gil-
lett to speak to and said “how do you
do.” Gillett pulled a cigar out of his
vest pocket and he asked him if he
had another for him. Gillett said
“No,” when he told him he might give
him that one. At that Gillett struck
him with the handcuffs saying “here’s
your cigar.” Naturally he threw up
his hands to protect his head and
whether Gillett thought he meant to
fight he couldn’t say but he began to
wield the handcuffs more rapidly, hit-
ting him all told four or five times,
cutting him on the head in several
places. He ran around the house with
Gillett after him, and seeing the hand-
pick lying on the frame of an old
grindstone grabbed it and swung it
around his head to keep Gillett away,
but he came toward him with his head
down and caught the blow, falling un-
conscious. He then called Katie and
told her to get help and take him into
the house and fix him up, and he left.
This concluded the testimony and
it was then that the court made the
statement given at the opening of this
article. This is the first case of the
kind ever heard in this way in the Cen-
tre county courts, although it is not
a new proceeding before Judge Quig-
ley, as he has had a dozen or more
similar cases in the Pittsburgh and
Philadelphia courts.
May Term of Court.
The regular May term of court con-
vened on Monday morning with Judge
Henry C. Quigley presiding. Various
motions and petitions were presented
after which the list of grand jurors
was called, eighteen out of the twen-
ty-four summoned answering the roll
call, among the absentees being three
women. Harry L. Hutchison, of
Bellefonte, was appointed foreman.
The list of traverse jurors was called
and out of the sixty men and women
summoned only thirty-nine responded,
it being a noticeable fact that the la-
dies are apparently not nearly so anx-
ious to do jury duty as they seemed to
be a year or so ago. Of the thirty-
nine who were present four asked to
be excused. H. M. Grenoble and O. B.
Brungard, of Ferguson township, be-
cause they have no help and are be-
hind in their farm work; Clark Sto-
ver, of Miles township, because he is
behind in his farm work and has ser-
ious illness in his family, and G. C.
Irish, of Philipsburg, because he is
under the doctor’s care and did not
feel able to do jury duty. They were
all excused.
A petition was presented to the
court for the appointment of a guard-
ian for Miss Ella A. Gates, who has
been a patient in the Bellefonte hos-
pital since February 7th, and whose
condition is such that she is not able
to look after her property interests,
and the court appointed her brother,
Charles L. Gates.
The first case taken up on Monday
afternoon was that of the Common-
wealth vs. Thomas Smeal, indicted or:
a serious charge on complaint of his
thirteen year old daughter Susie. The
jury returned a verdict of not guilty.
Most of Monday afterncon was tak-
en up with the trial of the case of
Helen T. Broadbent, nee Wilson, vs.
A. T. Sellers, being an action in tres-
pass to recover damages for an auto-
mobile accident on the state highway
between State College and Lemont,
on August 13th, 1923. On Tuesday
morning the jury returned a verdict
in favor of the plaintiff for $200.
Cyrus F. Hoy vs. Joel S. Royer and
John Hockman, was another action to
recover damages as the result of an
automobile wreck, but after hearing
the plaintiff’s testimony counsel for
the defendants made a motion for a
compulsory non-suit, which was
The case of Edward M. Gehret vs.
James From was an action in as-
sumpsit to recover pay for'the erec-
tion of a barn and the jury awarded
the plaintiff $422.70, with interest
from January 3rd, 1923.
William H. Stuart, Admr. of Harry
S. Stuart, deceased, vs. Mrs. Elias Ed-
miston, an action in ejectment. The
case was settled by the plaintiff ob-
taining possession of the land in ques-
tion, but to pay defendant $400 on or
before August 1st, 1924, and also the
record costs, each side to the contro-
versy to pay its own witness fees.
On Wednesday morning the case of
the Commonwealth vs. John Strabilla,
was taken up. This is the case grow-
ing cut of the dynamiting of a house
several years ago in which one man
was killed, the story of which was
told in detail in this paper a few
weeks ago as the result of the habeas
corpus proceedings following the ar-
rest of Strabilla on the charge of
murder. The trial of this case took
up all of Wednesday and yesterday

William Harvey Nelson, a well
known carpenter of Philipsburg, died
at the Bellefonte hospital on Monday
evening as the result of injuries sus-
tained in an auto accident on the road
between Snow Shoe and Clarence the
same afternoon. The automobile par-
ty consisted of Edward Remsnyder, of
Bigler, owner and driver of the car;
Mr. Nelson, Jack Matley and Howard
Cole, all of Philipsburg. According
to reports the car was being driven at
high speed and the driver missed the
roadway of the bridge between Clar-
ence and Snow Shoe and ran head on
into the concrete abutment, throwing
the car down an embankment into the
creek. Nelson was thrown out and
sustained a fractured skull. He was
brought to the Bellefonte hospital as
quickly as possible but cerebral hem-
orrhages caused his death within three

the automobile party were under the
influence of liquor the three men who |

Penn State Girls Have Another
“Jackie” Hillcrest, the baby boy
adopted about a year ago by the twen-
ty-six girl students in the course of
home economics at State College, has
been replaced with a “Bobby” Hill-
crest. Jackie was legally adopted by
a well to do family at the College and
in looking around for a substitute the
girls located Bobbie in a Philadelphia
children’s boarding home. Both his
parents are compelled to work to eke
out a living and were glad of the op-
portunity to get their little son a
good home against the day when they
can better provide for his wants.
All of the girl students living at
the practice house have fallen in
love with “Bobby,”and he lacks no at-
tention whatever. He is eleven months
old and has gained rapidly in weight
in the short time he has been at
State College under the watchful care
of the girls studying home economics.
Bobby’s parents have decided to al-
low him to remain through the Penn
State summer session, when another
group of girls will have the oppor-
tunity of “mothering” him. So in-
stead of facing hot city streets,
“Bobby” will live at least one sum-
mer of his life in the wide open
spaces of the woods that surround the
model home where he is “boss.”
The surname of “Hillcrest” given
to Jackie and Bobby is the name by
which the practice house is known on
the campus by reason of the fact that
it stands at the top of a small hill
overlooking the main campus.
Philipsburg Kiwanians Enjoyed Visit
of Bellefonte Kiwanis.
The inter-club meeting of the Belle-
fonte and Philipsburg Kiwanis at the
Hotel Phillips, in Philipsburg, last
Thursday evening proved a very en-
joyable fraternal gathering. About
thirty-seven members from Bellefonte
motored over the mountain, going by
way of Tyrone. Between seventy-
five and eighty people attended the
dinner and the meeting at The Phil-
lips. Among the speakers of the
evening were George W. Zeigler Esq.
and Rev. R. S. Oyler, of Philipsburg;
Rev. W. P. Ard, burgess W. Harrison
Walker, Prof. A. H. Sloop and L.
Frank Mayes, of Bellefonte. The
Jackson orchestra furnished music,
and John Rossi, an entertainer of Al-
toona, gave several interesting selec-
tions. The Bellefonte club extended
an invitation to the Philipsburg club
to be their guests at a similar gath-
ering to be held at the Brockerhoff
house next year. The Philipsburg
Journal characterized the Bellefonte
Kiwanians as a “good, jovial bunch,”
and expressed the hope that they “will
come again.”

ed acting State librarian last week

P. Donohoe by Dr. J. George Becht,

sylvania State College. She served

ber of years prior to going to Harris-
burg about ten years ago to accept a

At this time of the year when you
are digging into the hidden corners
of your house and bringing to light
all the things that have been tucked
away all winter and deciding what to
do with them, the following idea may
be of help: One housekeeper has four
large boxes. Into one she puts all
materials that may be used alone or
combined with other materials to
make useful garments. Into the sec-
ond box go all the pieces that may be
used for quilts or comfortables. Into
the third all the articles that she can-
not use herself but which might prove
useful to some one poorer; and into
the fourth box go all materials that
may be used in the making of rugs,
braided or woven.

cherish the names of those who have
crossed the great divide.”
