amusement in Bellefonte can eclipse
the Scenic. As a motion picture
theatre it is in a class by itself, show-

:some produced abroad. Each evening
‘has its own big program and missing
an evening means failure to see some
werthwhile pictures.
Last week the Watchman told
of Harry Harding falling out of a
second story window in Crider’s Ex-
«hange and after picking himself up,
:poing back upstairs and finishing his
job of washing windows.
day evening he was coming down
High street and when he struck the
icy pavement in front of the old Wil-
‘son property both feet flew out from
under him and he came down full
length on his back and head. He was
‘knocked out for a few minutes but
the next day he was out and around
as chipper as ever, all of which proves
that a fall more or less to Harry is
_ nothing unusual in his everyday life.
TV hen a large majority of Penn-
=:sylvania’s public school teachers are
‘not in the class room they spend a
spood part of their time studying for
‘the improvement of their service to
the community. The Pennsylvania
State College helps them with classes
in thirty-six towns in various parts of
the State. Those who are not near
enough to theze extension classes take
advantage of the home study courses
offered in educational subjects by the
school of education of The Pennsylva-
nia State College. There are over 200
teachers now enrolled in these corres-
pondence courses and by the end of
the school year that number will prob-
ably be doubled.
Benton D. Tate, who is so in-
dissolubly connected with the Bell
Telephone company in Bellefonte
that he has filled almost every posi-
tion but manager and at one time ve-
fused that, will have rounded out
‘thirty-four years of service with that
organization on February 1st. It
was con that date in 1891 when he
first went to work and since that time
he has been pole climber, repair man,
lineman, general trouble chaser and
now fills the position of combination
man, which construed literally means
a little bit of everything. In his ear-
lier days he could climb poles as nim-
ble as a cat, and is possessed of the
proverbial nine lives, as he has had
a number of serious accidents but
always comes up smiling and is soon
back on the job. When he went to
work as assistant foreman under the
old Central Pennsylvania Telephone
and Supply company Bellefonte had
79 phone users and State College

and the College exchange 1300, while

The services dedicating the new
$24,000.00 Sunday school room of the
Bellefonte Evangelical church ful-
filled all the hopeful expectations of
the pastor, Rev. Reed O. Steely, and
his faithful congregation.
They began Saturday evening, when
a banquet was served in the social

present when S. D.

State College, who reminisced, feli-
citated the pastor and congregation
‘on their splended achievement in
| building and paving the way for pleas-
ing talks by Edw. F. Young, H. W.
Kaler, Mrs. Maria Poorman, Edward
J. Teaman, Rev. Steely and Bishop
| Breyfogel. Of course the Imperial
' male quartet that had come up from
| First church, Williamsport, for the
‘ dedication was called on for many
songs and their music was an even:
ing’s entertainment in itse'f.
Sunday morning the Sunday school
met in the new room, 251 strong,
and was addressed by the Bishop.
At 10 o'clock the first regular
church service was held. Rev. Steely
conducted the ovening and, after two
splendid selections by the Imperial
qnartet, introduced Bishop Breyfogel,
who delivered one of the simplest, yet
most impressive sermons it has ever
been our good fortune to hear. Tak-
ing a text from Acts he launched into
a discussion of God’s relation to man
and man’s to God that made the
whole doctrine of regeneration . so
plain and convincing that a child
might have understood and a skep-
tis been confuted.
At the conclusion of the sermon
the financial committee took charge
and canvassed for subscriptions to
the buliding fund with marked suc-
cess, though the amount raised at
the morning service was not then an-
At 2:30 in the afternoon a plat-
form meeting was held with S. D.
Gettig Esq., presiding. A number of
visiting pastors spoke . Among them
were Rev. Geo. W. Emenhizer, pastor
emeritus of the United Brethren
church; Rev. W. C. Bierly, retired
! Evangelical minister of State College;
Rev. E. E. McKelvy, Rev. W. C.
Thompson, Dr. Ambrose Schmidt, of
Dellefonte, and Bishop Breyfogel.
The formal dedication was made at
the evening service. Then the church
auditorium and the new Sunday
school room were filled with an ex-
pectant gathering. They were not
disappointed, for Bishop Breyfogel
was at his best and the hour and ten
minute sermon he delivered seemed
all too short for the great gathering
that seemed to hang on his every
Immediately following the sermon

Since then enough other contributions
have filtered in to bring the grand
total about $4200.00.
Work on the construction of the

will be remodeled later. When finally

lin black mortar with lines following
the Moorish style.

A Cloudless Sky Afforded Goed View
of Saturday’s Eclipse.
Every resident of Centre county
who took the trouble to take a look, |
and it is probable that nine-tenths of
the adult population did so, got splen-
did views of Saturday’s solar eclipse
of the sun. The sky was cloudless fol-
lowing the unusually cold and frosty
morning. In fact it was the coldest
of the season, thermometers ranging
from six to ten degrees below zero.
The eclipse officially began at 7.58
and it was easily discernible a few
minutes after eight o’clock. At 9.08
only a faint rim of the sun showed
underneath the moon, which marked
the maximum of the eclipse in this
section. From that time on the eclipse
disappeared quite rapidly and came
to an end shortly after ten o’clock.
Contrary to some of the stories pub-
lished that almost total darkness
would prevail at the time the eclipse
was at its height, such did not prove
to be the case. It grew darker, of
course,through the almost total eclipse
of the sun, but was about on a par

PERLSTEIN.—From the Raleigh,

Bellefonte High Downs Hollidaysburg
Last Saturday night at the local
armory the High school boys defeated
the fast quintet from Hollidaysburg
by the score of 42-16. As the score
indicates, the game was not so close
‘that the final outcome was ever in
, doubt. The boys from Hollidaysburg
were not up to their usual strength,
due to injuries received in a previous
game, but whatever they lacked in
individual stars and in teamwork, they
made up in spirit and hard playing.
During the first quarter both teams
played an offensive game that was
its own defense and which was nearly
equal on both sides. The score at the
quarter was 12-8, with Bellefonte on
the long end. The speed of that first
period seemed to use up the reserve
energy of the visitors, for the rest of
the game they were on the defense.
During the second quarter they scored
one point while the locals accounted
for eight, bringing the totals to 20-9
at the half-time. The game slowed
up after the second half began, due
to the lack of an incentive to score on
our part. Although 22 points were
added to Bellefonte’s score, there was
no continued drive for baskets, no de-
termined rush to penetrate Hollidays-
| burg’s defense. The line-up follows:
: Bellefonte Hollidaysburg
i Iimel Forward Hughes
: Herman Forward King
: Bower Centre Hoenstine
Waite Guard Moore
| Furey Guard Robeson
Substitutes—Clark for Bower, Best for
Herman, Oakst for Hoenstine, Lasser for
Robeson. Field goals—Bellefonte, Emel 6,
Herman 6 Bower 2, Furey 1, Clark 2; Hol-
lidaysburg, Hughes 1, King 3, Oakst 1.
Free throws—Bellefonte, Emel 3 out of 8,
Herman 2 out of 3, Furey 1 out of 3; Hol-
lidaysburg, Hughes 4 out of 5, King 1 out
of 2, Hoenstine 1 out of 2, Moore 0 out of2.
B. H. S. sympathizes with coach
Mordon and his crippled team. They
showed excellent sportsmanship in the
clean brand of basket-ball they dis-
played, and their earnest endeavor to
overcome the handicap of playing
without their full strength.
On Friday night the boys will be
entertained at Philipsburg, and on
Saturday they play at Houtzdale.
The next home game we have will be
February 6th. It will be with Phil-
ipsburg here. Following that we
have five straight games at home. We
are near the top of the league now,
but in just what position we cannot
tell, as we have not heard the week-
end results from the other members
of the league.
The members of the Odd Fellows
band kindly contributed their services
to Saturday night’s game. The time
between the quarters and halves was
: greatly enlivened and the spectators
showed their appreciation by their
| sala spirit. The High school extends
| its heartiest thanks to the Odd Fel-
lows for their kindness.

B. H. S. Girls Defeat Lock Haven.
Last Friday night at the Y. M. C.
A., the High School girls defeated the
lassies from Lock Haven High School
in a game not as plentiful in thrills
and action as others we have seen.
Plenty of spirit and determination
was in evidence but was somewhat
checked because the ball was held too
much. Both sides seemed to have the
same difficulty in getting the ball free
and the few times the spheroid was
loose, real basket-ball was shown. The
final count was 22-14.
On Friday the girls journey to Re-
novo to play the girls basket-ball
team of Renovo High school.
Here’s hoping.
The next home game for the girlz
is Feb. 7 on which date they play the
quintet from Renovo.
At a meeting of directors of the
Athletic Association it was decided
that the girls team should not play
the sextet from Lucia.
