lished that its many patrons never
question the character of its pro-
grams. They know that only the best
‘pictures obtainable are shown there
and that they can always depend on
seeing something worthwhile.

sults with 30% ‘points. Seven schools
were represented in the meet.

at noon on Tuesday, when the home
of John Musser, on College avenue,
was partially destroyed. The roof
and a portion of the rear of the house
were burned before the flames were
extinguished. The house was of frame
construction and one of the oldest in
State College. Mr. Musser is a motor
mechanic and one room on the first
floor of his house was occupied as a
sales room for motor accessories.

Carrigan who conducted “The Union”
hotel there.
——The home of Elias Breon, at
Axe Mann, caught fire on the roof, at
nine o'clock yesterday morning, and
the first intimation Mrs. Breon had of
the danger to her home was when a
passing boy ran in and told her her
house was on fire. Fortunately a
Bell telephone construction gang was
at work nearby, and led by Benton D.
Tate, an old and experienced fireman,
they quickly hoisted a ladder to the
roof, formed a bucket brigade and
proceeded to work. They emptied the
Breon cistern and’ that of a neighbor
before the flames were extinguished.
Bellefonte firemen were summoned
but the fire was out when they got

next week, the exercises to begin in
the Presbyterian church on Sunday
evening when the baccalaureate ser-
mon to the graduating class will be
preached by Rev. Dr. Ambrose M.
Schmidt. Music will be furnished by:
a male choir.
The junior declamatory contest for
the W. F. Reynolds prizes will be held
on Monday evening at the High school
auditorium. The High school orches-
tra will furnish the music and the ten
contestants will be Betty Ray, Edward
Kern, Grace Carson, Donald Mallory,
Marguerite Holt, David Geiss, Ruth
Miller, Melvin Williams, Marie Chand-
ler and Fred Fisher. The judges will
be Prof. Irving L. Foster, county su-
peerintendent David O. Etters and

both schools will combine in staging
an out of doors pageant on the High
school grounds, which will be a festi-
val of historical representations, of
music and athletic exercises. In case
the weather is not auspicious for an
outdoor gathering on Tuesday morn-
ing the pageant will be held on Wed-
nesday morning.
Aside from the commencement ex-
ercises proper one of the most attract-
ive features of the week will be the
presentation of the play “Once in a
Blue Moon,” in the High school au-
ditorium on Wednesday evening at
8:15 o’clock, by members of the grad-
uating class. The play is laid in Mon-

On Wednesday morning the High
school building will be open to an in-
spection of the exhibits in manual
arts, household economics and grade

large and varied they are probably
not as elaborate as they might have
been had it not been for the fact that
considerable time was devoted to fash-
ioning the various costumes to be
used in the play on Tuesday evening.
The commencement exercises prop-
er will be held in the auditorium on
‘Wednesday evening. The commence-
ment address will be delivered by Mr.

Four Young People Injured in Auto
Accident. a
Four young people were seriously
injured in an auto accident, last Fri-
day night, while returning from a
dance at Hecla Park. The list includes
Paul Weaver, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Mac Weaver, driver of the car, bad gut
on leg, lacerations and bruises.
Roy Shaffer, right leg broken, lac-
erations and bruises.
Mitzi Bodenshoff, right leg broken,
lacerations and bruises.
Mary Neff, severe bruises and mi-
nor lacerations.
The four young people left the park
at eleven o'clock to return to Belle-
fonte and just as they made the turn
from the park road onto the state
highway ran into a telephone pole.
The car was badly smashed and every
one of the occupants was thrown out
and piled up promiscuously. Other
cars following close upon the Weaver
promptly went to the assistance of the
injured young people. They were
quickly placed in other cars, made as
comfortable as possible, and brought
to the Centre County hospital where
physicians reduced the fractures of
the broken limbs and rendered med-
ical attention to those otherwise in-

threw a scare into the public gener-
ally, on Monday, by announcing a
“hard to killing” frost for Tuesday
morning. Bellefonte gardeners tramp-
ed in the muddy soil and covered many
early vegetables but their work was
unnecessary, as it was seven degrees
warmer Tuesday morning than it was
Monday morning, and was a safe
distance from the danger line.

iow sleep the brave who sink to rest
By all their country’s wishes blest!
When spring with dewey fingers cold
Returns to deck their hallowed mold,
She there shall dress a sweeter sod
Than faney's feet have ever trod.
By fairy hands their knell is rung:
By unseen forms their dirge is sung;
There Honor comes, a pilgrim gray,
To bliss the turf that wrap their clay;
And freedom shall awhile repair ©
To dwell, 4 weeping hermit, there.
—By William Collins (1721-1759.)
Kiwanis Entertain G. A. R. Veterans.
The Kiwanis club, on Tuesday, en-
tertained nine veterans of the Civil
war in honor of their services to our
country and as a .small part of the
memorial observations of the current
week. The special table for the old
veterans was occupied by the follow-
ing: William Colpetzer, Henry Tay-
lor, James Reed, Daniel Eberhart,
William Flack, Joseph Alters, Harvey
Griffith, Rev. Emenhizer and Samuel
Guisewhite. To pay tribute to their
services and to bring a message of in-
spiring patriotism Kiwanis secured
Dr. James Yeager, of Lewistown, as
speaker. The sustained and ringing
applause testified that Dr. Yeager had
stirred his audience as no recent
speaker on any subject has done.
Drawing from a fund of thought and
knowledge gathered from. a life of
usefulness and travel the speaker
brought a vivid appeal to the patri-
otic instincts of all citizens who heard
him, The boys of ’61 were visibly af-
fected by his refererices:to the strife
which saved the Union, and their en-
tertainers were made far more appre-.
ciative of their heroism. Fenty
Aside from the stirring address of
Dr. Yeager several minor reports
were heard and a motion heartily
adopted to remember with a floral
message Kiwanian “Bill” Emerick,
now convalescing in the Clearfield
hospital. CA
The St. Columba’s Choir to Sing Here
* Again.
The choir of St. Columba’s church
of Johnstown, that so delighted the
large audience it sang to here last
year, will return to Bellefonte for a
sacred concert in St. John’s Catholic
church on Sunday evening, June 7th.
This organization is regarded as the
best singing group of mixed voices in
this diocese of the Catholic church. In
fact some maintain it is the best choir
of the church in this country. For
years it; has been trained and devel-
oped by! Dr. Peter McAneny, who ac-
quired his musical culture in Italy
where he studied under the smasters
who train grand opera singers prin-
cipally. .
All of the program will be sacred
and as it is to be given Sunday night
there will be no charge, though admis-
sion will be by ticket and an offering
of one dollar per person will be hoped

Coal Property.
While in town on Wednesday M. D.
Kelley, formerly of Snow Shoe, and
now residing in Altoona, informed the
“Watchman” that his company, the
Central Coal and Coke Co., has pur-
chased the property of the Loey Coal
Co., located on the Monongahela Div.

——Among the revocations of auto
drivers licenses announced by the
State Highway Department, on Mon-
day, are those of Charles A. Isenberg,
of Boalsburg; R. J. Bower, of Tyrone;
John R. Dunkle, of Altoona, and
LeRoy Fox, of Lock Haven. The lat-

Lamar and Nittany. His case was
to have come up last week but was
continued because his attorney was
detained in Clinton county court,
Terrific Rain and Thunder Storms
Saturday Night. Snow
Sunday Night.
Torrid weather, the hottest of the
year, prevailed last Saturday and it
brought results in a series of terrific
rain and thunder storms Saturday
evening and night, which was follow-
ed by colder weather on Sunday and a
snow fall Sunday night.
The first storm of any consequence
was on Saturday afternoon about four
o’clock, but it passed down Bald Eagle
valley and did not reach Bellefonte.
It was accompanied with hail in large
quantity and of unusual size. In fact
the hail stones were so large that two
month’s old chickens caught out in the
open in the vicinity of Runville were
beaten to death. The men who are
erecting the airmail searchlight tow-
er on Parson’s mountain, this side of
Snow Shoe, were driven to cover by
the falling hailstones. Out at Snow
Shoe the ground was covered with
hail. ;
Beginning at seven o’clock Saturday
evening there was a succession of
storms way into the night. About
eight o'clock lightning struck the Cur-
ry home, on Logan street, knocking a
small hole in the roof, scattering soot
fire to some clothing in the attic. The
fire companies were called out and the
flames quickly extinguished. A hole
was knocked in a sewer on Bishop
street, which was also credited to a
bolt of lightning.
The Keystone Power corporation
and the telephone companies had trou-
bles galore. Twice the lights went
out in Bellefonte but the trouble was
quickly found and remedied, but it
busy until Monday. The telephone
companies did not get their troubles
all cleared: up-until early this week.
Following the rain storms about
two inches of snow fell on Sunday
night, though it all disappeared early
Monday morning.
Long Drawn Out Case in Court This
A long drawn out case in court dur-
ing the week was that of J. H. Rock-
erfeller, receiver of the Bird Coal and
Iron Co., vs. David Chambers, an
action to recover alleged unpaid
royalties for coal mined on the plain-
tiff’s property in Snow Shoe town-
ship. The plaintiff was represented by
S. D. Gettig ‘Esq., of Bellefonte, and
Fred Shaffer Esq., of Sunbury, while
the defendant’s attorneys were Ellis
L. Orvis and James C. Furst Esgs.,
of Bellefonte, - and A. M. Liveright
Esq., of Clearfield. The case was
replete with figures and legal tech-
... Mr. Chambers, it appeared from the
evidence, leased the coal lands from
B. W. Sleppy, son of the president of
the Bird Coal and Iron Co., in 1913,
for a minimun royalty payment of
‘three hundred - tons -a month.” He
operated the mine until early in 1920
county court which resulted in the ap-
pointment of J. H. Rockerfeller as
receiver. At that time defendant
claims to have made a settlement with
B. W. Sleppy for all moneys due him
on the lease, and the present case is
the result of a claim by the re-
ceiver that the money paid at that
time was not in full for all coal mined
and who brought action to recover a
sum not to exceed $9,400.
The case went on trial last Thurs-
day afternoon and was not completed
until yesterday. Up to the time the
“Watchman” went to press yeesterday
‘afternoon the jury had not returned
a verdict and there was no indication
as to how soon it might do so.
When the Watchman went to press
last week the case on trial was that of
the Commonwealth vs. Selah A.
Amed, accused of attempted rape and
assault and battery. Mrs. Mary Eliz-
abeth Heaton, of Blanchard, was the
prosecutor. It took the jury almost
seven hours to reach a decision but
they finally reeturned a virdict of not
guilty, placing one-fourth of the costs
on the prosecutor and three-fourths
on the defendant.
Walter L. Main Show to Visit Belle-
fonte on June 20th.
Hurrah for the kiddies! Mr. L. C.
Gillette, advance agent for the Wal-
ter L. Main show, was in Bellefonte on
Monday and made arrangements for
the appearance of the show in Belle-
fonte on Saturday, June 20th, and
there will also be a big free street
parade. For almost half a century
the Walter L. Main show has been on
the road, and it has been a fairly reg-
ular visitor in Bellefonte. Thirty
years ago it was badly shot to pieces
in a big railroad wreck coming down
the mountain to Vail station, but it
has been recuperating from year to
year until now it is one of the best
and cleanest shows in the country.
It has equipment and paraphernalia
valued at upward of three quarters of
a million dollars, and over five hun-
dred men, women and horses are car-
ried. Among the features are the
Flying Jordans, the Peerless Potters,
gymnasts; the Nanking troupe of Chi-
nese equilibrists; the Maxwell Trio,
acrobats; Arthur Borella, the highest
salaried clown in America; the Flor-
ence family of riders; the DeLong
Sisters, acrobats and nearly 100 other
stars and features of Continental Eu-
rope and Great America.
The first bill car will be in Belle-
fonte Saturday of next week, when
the flaming posters advertising the
circus will be put up.

Walter Sunday, of Pine Grove Mills,
Shet in Mistake for Groundhog.
Shortly before five o’clock on Wed-
nesday afternoon, Walter Sunday,
thirteen year old son of Harry Sun-
day, and Ellery Grove, aged sixteen
years, both of near Pine Grove Mills,
went hunting for groundhogs on the
James Mitchell farm. The lads sepa-
‘rated and Grove hearing a noise in a
Mrs. Lindemuth, of Brooklyn, came to '
clump of bushes near where he was
standing fired pointblank, supposing
the object in the bushes to be a
groundhog. Instead it was his chum
Walter, who received the entire load
of shot in his face.
The Sunday boy screamed and the
Grove lad was horrified ‘to/find him ly-
