Christian Temperance Women Hold
The annual convention of the Wom-
an’s Christian Temperance Union,
held in the Christian church at How-
ard, Wednesday and Thursday of last
week, proved an enthusiastic and in-
teresting gathering. Miss Rebecca N.
Rhoads, president of the Union, pre-
sided and emphasized the need of her
own department of work, that of the
soldiers and sailors in the various
army camps, at every opportunity.
Nearly all the active Unions were
represented by delegates. Reports of
officers and department superintend-
ents showed unusual activity along all
lines of work. With a balance in the
treasury, with all debts paid and obli-
gations met the treasurer’s report was
The Gold Medal contest held at 7:30
Wednesday evening was a credit to
the six contestants who took part and
created much enthusiasm in this de-
partment. Emily Goodling, of State
College, received the highest number
of points in voice, articulation, gesture,
memory, and general effect, and was
awarded the gold medal. The building
was too small to hold all who desired
to be present at this, the first “young
peoples night” in the history of the
county. The Howard Boy Scouts, who
attended in a body, the appropriate
music by the Howard girls’ chorus,
the sweet solos rendered so beautiful-
ly by Virginia Weber, the catchy hu-
morous playlet by the Centre Hall Y.
P. B’s, the bright and eager faces of
the more than one hundred children
who were present, all served to make
this night long to be remembered.
Dr. Mitchell Bennetis, head of the
State Anti-Saloon League, brought a
strong and comprehensive address on
“America’s Perils.” It was a ring-
ing challenge to every white ribboner
for their very best service. Our great-
est peril is “the unchurched masses in
this country today.” The most im-
portant task is the religious training
of American youth. Sixty-seven per
cent. are receiving no systematic re-
ligious instruction. Twenty-seven
million children are not enrolled in
any Sunday school and only one out
of every four of our boys and girls
are receiving any religious instruc-
Thursday afternoon was taken up
with reports of department superin-
tendents. Mrs. Gardner, of the de-
partment of Scientific Temperance In-
struction, urged the holding of essay
and poster contests in the public
schools, distribution of literature and
blotters, and the importance of get-
ting into vital touch with the teacher.
Mrs. Stelly, for the L. T. L., outlined
the necessity of making the children
sign the total abstinence pledge with
the pledge of allegiance, teaching loy-
alty to God and country. Mrs. Beach,
of the Citizenship department, remind-
ed the women of their duties as loyal
citizens. “If every women in the W.
C. T.~U: were to take five others to
the polls we would win out in our ef-
forts to elect good men. Try it. “If
you want to live in the kind of a town
you like make it that kind of a town.”
Thursday afternoon was given over
to Congressman Swoope, Legislative
nominee Mr. Holmes and Miss Chor-
peming, State superintendent of the
young people’s branch. This was a
most interesting meeting, the speak-
ers putting themselves upon record as
favoring the rigid enforcement of the
prohibition laws. They paid a fine
tribute to the work of the Woman's
Christian Temperance Union, ac-
knowledging that this organization
had been one of the prime factors in
bringing about the Eighteenth Amend-
ment, one of the greatest reform
movements in the world’s history.
7:30 o’clock found the house crowd-
ed to listen to the woman from Kan-
sas. Mrs. Michener, State president
of the Kansas W. C. T. U., was the
eloquent speaker. She gave a strong
address, winning the hearts of her au-
dience by the force of her personality
and the incontrovertible arguments
she put forth. She is a remarkable
woman of great ability and rare per-
Mrs. L. H. Leitzell reported for the
committee on resolutions. The differ-
ents points emphasized were: Alle-
giance to our declamation of princi-
ples, strengthening our department
work, organizing a Y. P. B. and L. T.
L. in every Union in the county, car-
rying on a “win one” membership
campaign, urging the need of being
constant in prayer, continuing our slo-
gan “Back to the Bible and the fami-
ly altar,” protest against the growing
tendency of militarism, the urgency of
developing the sphere of thought
which regards war as a calamity to
be avoided if possible, the necessity
of securing total abstainers, and an
intensive campaign against all habit
forming drugs, education in the use of
the ballot, special effort to get women
to the polls on election day, the sup-
port of dry candidates regardless of
party -affiliation, opposition to the ef-
forts of the outlawed liquor triffic to
repeal the Eighteenth Amendment and
restore the sale of light wines and
beer, and that we appeal to men’s or-
ganized Bible classes of Centre coun-
ty to aid in the securing of the bal-
ance on the Law Enforcement fund.
All the old officers were elected and
at the tap of the gavel the 39th an-
nual convention of Centre county
passed into history.

Witmer Barn Burned.
The barn on the James Witmer
farm, on the back road up Buffalo
Run valley, was totally destroyed by
fire last Thursday afternoon. The
farm is tenanted by Cal Rider and
none of the men were at home at the
time but the women folks succeeded
in: saving all the live stock. All the
summer’s crops and many farm im-
plements went up in smoke. Both Mr.
Witmer and Mr. Rider carried some
insurance but not enough to cover
their loss. The origin of the fire has
not been determined.
The Bellefonte district of vital
statistics is evidently. becoming a
healthier place in which to live. Up
to Tuesday afternoon of this week
only three deaths for this month were
included in the reports made to the
registrar of vital statistics, two of
which were children and one adult.
This is the smallest number reported
in any month since the establishment
of the bureau of vital statistics in
1906, eighteen years ago. The high-
est number of deaths reported in the
month of September during the above
period was forty-three.
The Scenic, as usual, is proving
a popular place of amusement for the
Bellefonte Academy students, princi-
pally because it is the only place of
good, clean entertainment in Belle-
fonte and the pictures shown there al-
ways appeals to the general public,
young and old. Many movie fans in
Belefonte are regular attendants and
thus see all the good pictures shown.
