* — During the latter part of last
week James Mitchell Thompson, the
nine month’s old child of Rev. and
Mrs. William C. Thompson, of Belle-
fonte, became quite ill and the attend-
ing physician finally diagnosed the
trouble as some foreign substance
either in the windpipe or lung. By
Sunday the child’s condition was such
that Rev. Thompson cancelled his
evening services in the Presbyterian
church and with Mrs. Thompson and
the child left on the night train for
Philadelphia to consult a specialist.
By using a powerful X-ray the latter
was able to locate the trouble, which
was in the right lung and an operation
was performed as soon as possible.
The foreign substance proved to be
a small portion of stem and one of
two petals of a flower very much re-
sembling the daisy. The child had
evidently inhaled the substance while
on the floor and being unable to ex-
pel it gradually drew it down into
the lung. The operation for its re-
moval was successful and latest word
from Philadelphia is that the little
boy is getting along as well as can be
| HOSPITAL MERGER MEETING.
| New Board of Trustees Elected and
i So far as name goes the Bellefonte
hospital is now a matter of history and
in the future this well known institu-
tion will be known as the Centre
County Hosptal, in accordance with
the action of a public meeting held in
the court house, Bellefonte, on Mon-
.day evening. Notwithstanding the
fact that the meeting had been widely
advertised only forty-seven people
were present, the big majority,
course, being from Bellefonte.
John B. Payne, secretary of the
Bellefonte Kiwanis, called the meeting
to order and asked for nominations
for a temporary chairman. Rev. Wil-
son P. Ard was chosen to preside and
Miss Winifred M. Gates was elected
secretary. John Blanchard Esq., ex-
plained the purpose of the meeting to
be official action on the merger of the
Bellefonte hospital into Centre Coun-
ty hospital, in accordance with a legal
notice duly published in two newspa-
pers of the county.
G. Oscar Gray presented a resolu-
tion outlining the order of business
for the meeting which was adopted.
The first order being the election of
fifteen people to serve as trustees of
the institution John M. Bullock an-
nounced that the Kiwanis club offered
From Bellefonte and Spring town-
ship—John Blanchard, George Hazel,
Edward R. Owens, Col. W. F. Rey-
nolds, W. T. Kelly, A. Fauble, W. H.
Noll Jr. and Ralph Mallory.
Snow Shoe—David Chambers.
State College—J. Laird Holmes and
Port Matilda—W. Edgar Williams.
Millheim—W. S. Shelton.
Centre Hall—Frank A. Carson.
Howard—T. A. Pletcher.”
Following the presentation of the
above list chairman Ard announced
the meeting open for further nomina-
tions. Dr. LeRoy Locke nominated
W. J. Emerick, of Bellefonte, and the
nomination was seconded. Mr. Emer-
ick was present and asked that his
name be withdrawn as he expects to
be away from Bellefonte during most
of the summer and would not be in a
position to give active service to the
board at this time. Mr. Blanchard
explained that the list presented by
the Kiwanis gave Bellefonte and sur-
rounding community just enough
members to constitute a quorum and
if one member should fail to attend a
meeting and no members from the
outside should respond it would be
impossible to transact any business.
And it was very important that work
on the improvements at the hospital
be started at the earliest possible mo-
ment and pushed with all possible
speed. Dr. Locke declined to with-
draw Mr. Emereick’s name and there
being no other nominations the chair-
man appointed H. S. Moore and W. M.
Bottorf as judges to conduct the elec-
tion, which according to the order of
business, was by ballot.
While the judges were counting the
ballots Mr. Blanchard read the pro-
posed changes in the articles of incor-
poration which will be presented to
the court in order to obtain a charter
for the Centre County hospital. Par-
ticular stress was placed upon Article
II which defined the hospital as an in-
stitution for the medical and surgical
care of the sick, except chronic cases,
incurables and those afflicted with in-
fectious or contageous diseases; sub-
ject, however, to any rules and regu-
lations the board may see fit to adopt.
Miss Elizabeth Meek inquired whether
that would exclude tuberculosis pa-
tients and stated that she had been
informed by State tuberculosis offi-
cials that such patients could and
should be admitted to general hos-
pitals in the primary stage of the dis-
ease. In explanation Dr. Seibert stat-
ed that an act of assembly provides
that each county must take care of its
tuberculosis patients but it was his
understanding of the act that they
must be segregated in a separate
ward or building beyond any possi-
bility of cantaminating other patients.
Mr. Blanchard stated that under the
provisions of Article II the board
would have the option to admit such
patients if they deemed it safe and
wise to do so.
At the conclusion of the reading of
the articles of incorporation the judg-
es announced the result of the ballot
for trustees, the entire Kiwanis slate
being elected, though Mr. Emerick
received 21 votes.
The By-Laws were then taken up
and read article by article and section
by section, and adopted without any
material change. Notice was given
that the new board of trustees will
meet at the hospital next Monday
evening for the election of a presi-
dent, vice president, secretary and
treasurer, and for the transaction of
any and all other business that may
be brought before them, after which
the meeting adjourned.
Local Military to Camp in Curtin’s
The Headquarters troop and Troop

tin’s gap the latter part of next week.

Unconscious in Room Three Days.
A news dispatch from Coatesville
last Thursday stated that Horton S.
Ray, of Bellefonte, was found uncon-
scious in his room at the Y. M. C. A.
dormitories, where he had been for
two or three days before being found.
Mr. Ray, who is in the employ of
Lowry & Green, Harrisburg archi-
tects, was in Coatesville superintend-
ing the excavation work for a new
school building. He roomed at the Y.
M. C. A. dormitories and according to
the matrons his room had been locked
for three days. Finally, on Thursday
| morning, the matter was reported to
‘the Y. M. C. A. officials and the door
was broken open, Mr. Ray being found

city is that Mr. Ray is recovering.

Bellefonte Leads the Centre County
. The Centre county baseball league
is now in full swing and interest in
the various games is increasing.
Bellefonte leads the league to date but
is only one game ahead of Millheim.
State College and Centre Hall have
not yet struck their stride but the sea-
son is young and both teams have
good material that will have to be
reckoned with before many more
games are played.
On Thursday of last week Bellefonte
defeated State College by the score
of 8 to 2 while Centre Hall downed
Millheim 3 to 2. Saturday’s games
resulted as follows: Bellefonte 7,
Centre Hall 5. State College 12, Mill-
heim 8. The “Watchman” was una-

Witmer Family Held Big Reunion.
One of the first big reunions of the
season was that of the Witmer fam-
ily, held last Saturday at the home of
John Witmer, seven miles west of
Pine Grove Mills. About one hundred
people were present and the dinner,
which is always a feature at family
reunions, was served on one big ta-
ble spread in the spacious barn floor.
Of course everything good in the way
of eatables adorned the table and
there was every evidence that all
present enjoyed that part of the gath-
ering, at least. C. C. Shuey, of Belle-
fonte, was among the guests and gave
a little talk on the pleasure and im-
portance of family reunions and it
was decided to hold a similar gather-
ing next year. Those present includ-

MANY MEN AND WOMEN
Almost Five Hundred Graduate at
Penn State Commencement
The first commencement at The
Pennsylvania State College (at that
time the Farmers’ High School) was
held in 1861 and just twelve young
men were members of the class. This
five hundred young men and women
were given diplomas, and adding to
this number those who were given de-
grees at the mid-winter graduation
exercises in January makes a grand
total of over six hundred. Every
county in Pennsylvania is represented
in the list of graduates, as well as al-
most every State in the union, while
China, Japan and the Philippines each
had one representative in the gradu-
The week’s program began infor-
mally on Friday night with gay house
parties at almost every fraternity
while many classes held annual re-
unions. An unusually good represen-
tation of old grads were back for the
festivities, among them many men
who are now leaders in law, science
and engineering, and every one of
them entered into the spirit of the
gathering with the enthusiasm of
high school kids.

day morning was delivered by Rev.
Dr. Leon C. Prince, of Dickinson Sem-
inary. At the class day exercises on
Monday a $2500 piano was presented

Big Week at State College.
Following right after the com-
mencement ‘young farmers’ week”
drew a large crowd to State College
for the various exhibits, demonstra-
tions and everything else on the pro-
gram. In the neighborhood of 350
boys and 20 girls arrived at the Col-
lege on Monday, and had the time of
their lives on the college campus. In-
cluded in the number were 52 judging
teams of three boys each who repre-
sented 35 counties of the State in the
annual State-wide judging contests
which were held yesterday. Instruc-
tion in agricultural subjects, tours to
points of interests over the campus,
and instructive talks by Dean R. L.
Watts, of the school of agriculture
and M. S. McDowell, director of the
agricultural extension department
have absorbed the interest of the jun-
ior farmers every hour of the days
spent at the College.
At the opening meeting of Farmers’
day on Wednesday evening, State
Secretary of Agriculture, Frank P.
Willets, and president John M. Thom-
as, of The Pennsylvania State College,
addressed the many farmers in at-
tendance. Community singing, spe-
cial singing, special music, and agri-
cultural moving pictures completed
the evening program.
Thursday was devoted to tours over
the college farms, observing the ex-
perimental work and viewing demon-
strations given by members of the
faculty. A dairy judging contest for
the men, an hour of fun for men,
women and children, a sale of pure-
bred dairy calves raised by the college,
and an afternoon tea for the farm
day’s program. The winners of the
state-wide judging contest were an-
nounced at a meeting last evening and
prizes awarded to the victors.
