——The Scenic continues to be the
only motion picture show in Bellefonte
dependable for its big programs every
night in the week, and its regular pa-
trons never go away disappointed. No
pictures made are too big or too good
for the Scenic, in the opinion of man-
ager T. Clayton Brown, and that is the
reason he always secures the best that

of approximately $12,000, have been
approved by the State Department of
Education. :
——As the Pennsylvania-Lehigh
train west, on Wednesday afternoon,
started to pull away from. the Belle-
fonte. station one set of drivers left
the rails. Fortunately the train had
not attained any great amount of
speed and was quickly brought to a
stop. It took only about ten minutes
to get the wheels back on the rails
and the train proceeded on its way
without much. loss of time,
——The Williamsport papers pub-
Jished: quite an extended account of
‘the réception: recently: tendered Rev.
and Mrs. Alexander Scott in that city.
“It was in the nature of an expression
of Williamsport’s pleasure at the re-
turn of Rev. Scott to his work in
~ Grace Methodist church of that city,
where he has been doing a wonderful
work. During his service there he has
taken 220 new members into the
church, paid an old indebtedness of
$6,000 and financed a new pipe organ
which is this year’s improvement pro-
gram. Rev. Scott was pastor of the
Methodist church here several years
- ——W. J. Emerick, who has been
quite ill the past two weeks, was tak-
en to the Clearfield hospital, on Tues-
day, to be under the observation of
Dr. Waterworth. The doctor was in
Bellefonte last Sunday, called here to
* see Mrs. William J. Daley, who is ser-
iously ill at her home on Willowbank
street, and while here was called in
consultation on Mr. Emerick’s case
which has so far baffled his own phy-
isician. Unable to diagnose the case
Dr. Waterworth suggested taking him
to the Clearfield hospital for observa-.
tion. He was taken over in the big
auto bus, “Miss Nittany,” accompa-
nied by: Mrs. Emerick ‘and his nurse,
and stood the trip very well. Blood
tests at the hospital following his ar-
rival there failed to show any traces
of typhoid fever. Up to Wednesday
evening his condiiton was about the
same, with the exception that he had
suffered no more chills.
——Last Thursday evening Mr.
Gilston, one of the instructors in the
Bellefonte High school, with three
students, William Harvey, David
Weaver and James Bower, decided to
go to Philadelphia for the Penn re-
lays. They left here in a car of stand-
ard make but bewhiskered with age.
At Miflinburg one tire went flat and
another collapsed out of sympathy.
Repairs were made but at Millers-
town six miles further along the way,
the old car gave up the ghost and at
7.30 o'clock Friday morning the car
was abandoned and the young men
started to hike it. With successive
lifts two of them reached the city at
two o'clock in the afternoon and the
other two at six. They saw the Belle-
fonte relay team win its victory and
left Philadelphia on the return trip
_at midnjght Saturday night. Though
to hike it they walked

Big Hangar Completed on New Avia- ; Thrilling Western Drama to be Pre- Bellefonte High Won Relay Race at i
tion Field.
The Spaulding Construction compa-
ny last Friday completed the erection
of the big hangar and other necessary
buildings on the new airmail field near,
Bellefonte and on Saturday the men
in charge took their departure from
Bellefonte. Under the one roof is the
hangar, with a capacity for six of the
large airmail planes. Brick walls ex-
tend from the foundation to a height
of probably four feet, and windows
extend from there to the roof. The |
entire southern end of the building is
composed of three huge rolling doors
which can all be rolled up and the two
supporting iron posts raised, throwing
the entire end open to incoming and
outgoing planes.
Under the same roof on the west
side of the building are the office, tool
house, stock room and garage. Be-
neath the tool house is the boiler pit
for the heating aparatus, and just
west of the building is a 12x12 foot
concreted cistern, which will furnish
the water supply for the plant. Oil
will be used as fuel
plant and an up-to-date filtering sys-
tem will be installed at the cistern to
insure absolutely pure water. A well
will also be put down so as to make !
sure of a constant and sufficient sup-
ply of water.
The big bulding will be lighted al-
most entirely by exterior lights with’
strong reflectors, the standards of
which are already in place. The bea-
con light on top of the hangar and the
one on Nittany mountain have not
vet been put in position, but the big
generator which will furnish the juice
for the lighting system is on the
ground and ready to put in position.
The field will be entirely surrounded
with lights on standards about two
feet in height, which will be low
enough to prevent their being a haz-
ard to the mail planes. The telephone ,
lines which run along the roads on
each side of the field are being moved
one field further away, and the one
deep depression in the field is now be-
ing filled up and all rough spots
smoothed off.
There is still some interior finish-
ing to do at the office, tool house and
stock room, but it will all be done and
in readiness for night flying by June
1st, if the same is inaugurated on
that date.
Fire at Whiterock Destroyed Three .
Dinkey Engines.
The three dinkey engines owned by
the Whiterock Quarries, and used by
them in the operation of their big
plant at Pleasant Gap, were destroyed .
by a fire, last: Thursday afternoon,
which burned to the ground the engine
house in which the dinkeys were kept
during the night. The fire was dis-
covered about’ 4:30 o’clock and had
already gained such headway that it
was impossible to save the building
or engines. The fact that the men
quit work at four o’clock and had all
left the plant accounts for the fact
that the fire was not discovered until
the building was a mass of flames.
How it originated is not known.
The destruction = of the dinkeys
might have left the company in a bad
way, as they are rushed with orders
at the present time, had it not been
for the fact that they just happened
to have at the plant a Ford tractor
built to run on a narrow gauge rail-
road. It was at once pressed into
service and is helping out nicely.
One of the dinkeys destroyed was
twenty years old and naturally had
seen its best days. The others were
in better condition and officials of the
company estimate the total loss at
not over ten thousand dollars, partial-
| ly covered by insurance.
The farm house on the W. C.
Smeltzer farm, adjoining the new
aviation field in Spring township, oc-
cupied by Harry Tressler and family,
was entirely destroyed by fire about
nine o’clock on Wednesday morning of
this week. The fire evidently orig
inated from a defective flue and had
gained a good start when discovered.
All the men working at the aviation
field rushed to the aid of the Tress-
ler family and they were able to save
practically all of their household
goods. The Undine fire company went
out but could do nothing to save the
They did, however, keep the
loss on the house is partially covered
by insurance.
American Plant Damaged by Fire.
Tuesday morning fire was discov-
ered on the roof of the coal bunker
unit of the big hydrating plant of the
American Lime and Stone Co., in this
place. It had gained such headway
that all efforts to stop it were fruit-
less until the entire roof of that sec-
tion was destroyed.
The fire had its origin in a peculiar
way. The coal in the bunkers took
fire several days ago and workers had
been fighting it continuously. There
were four cars of coal in the pile and
not until Monday night was it thought
to be out. The supposition is that it
caught up again during Monday night
and generated gases and heat that
caused the explosion that ignited the

When James Hauser, 32 years old,
of Penbrooke, went with a constable
to serve a warrant on his wife and
Harry Casper, of Altoona, on a serious
charge, Hauser was shot through the
head. His wound is not believed to be
serious but an X-ray examination will
be necessary to determine how bad it
is. “Casper was held without bail on
a charge of having done the shooting.

Opposition to Motor Bus Line Be-
tween Bellefonte and Tyrone.
Considerable opposition developed
at the hearing before the Public Serv-
ice Commission, in Harrisburg yester-
day, on the applications of William R.
Grazier, of Warriorsmark, for a cer-
tificate of public convenience to op-
erate a motor bus line between Belle-
fonte and Tyrone, and the Fullington
Bus company to operate a similar line
between Bellefonte and Bald Eagle.
Business men’s associations of
Bellefonte, Tyrone and intermediate
| towns presented resolutions protest-
ing against the granting of such cer-
tificates, averring that the existing
railroad accommodations are ample to
handle all traffic conveniently.
* Centre county people, especially,
have good cause to know the ultimate
results of motor bus opposition. They
put the old Central Railroad of Penn-
'sylvania entirely out of business and
haye reduced the Bellefonte Central
to the status of a freight carrying line
