American Natural Gas Co. to Drill
Test Wells in Snow Shoe Region.
The American Natural Gas Co., of
Pittsburgh, has leased twenty thous-
and acres of land in Snow Shoe and
Burnside townships,
and within the next week or ten days
will begin the work of drilling test
wells for oil and natural gas. The
first well will be put down on the
lands of the Cato Coal company, near
The driller
will be W. H. Haupt, of Hawthorne,
Pa., an experienced man, who is now
getting his equipment on the ground
in preparation for putting down the
first well.
According to geologists the Speach-
ley sand lies at a depth of two thous-
and feet in the Allegheny mountain
section, and Mr. Haupt estimates that
it will take him forty days from the
day he begins drilling to reach the
sand, which will be an average of fif-
ty feet a day. The Speachley sand is
the upper strata of oil and gas bearing
sand, and only when it is reached will
the driller know whether there is any
likelihood of oil and gas being found
in that section. In the event that oil
or gas are not found in the Speachley
sand, the hole will then be drilled
down to the Bradford sand, which is
estimated to lie three thousand feet
beneath the surface.
Of course the first hole drilled may
prove to be a “dry,” but this will not
end the prospecting work by any
means. As stated above, the compa-
ny has leased twenty thousand acres
of land, in Snow Shoe and Burnside
townships, from the Cato Coal Co., the
Kelly Bros. and Lawrence Redding. of
Snow Shoe, and Col. H. S. Taylor, of
Bellefonte. Should the first well be
barren of results drilling will be con-
tinued at different places until oil and
gas are struck or the entire tract is
tested out.
As to the possibilities of finding
either oil or gas, or both in that sec-
tion, officers of the American Gas Co.
believe the chances are favorable.
When the Clinton Oil and Gas Co. be-
gan drilling in Clinton county every-
body considered the project nothing
less than a wild goose chase, but they
found gas in paying quantities, and
such being the case in that section of
the Alleghenies there is a possibility
that success may attend the prospect-
ors in the Snow Shoe region and in
due course of time Bellefonte people
will be burning natural gas as fuel.
State College Commencement Will
Begin Today.
The annual commencement of The
Pennsylvania State College will begin
today, and for the information of all
those contemplating attending a por-
tion or all of the events in connection
therewith we herewith publish the
most attractive features. Alumni
gatherings will occupy all of this
afternoon with the annual meeting at
five o’clock in the auditorium, and the
annual dinner in McAllister hall at
6:30. The Penn State Players will
give an entertainment at 8:30 and an
informal dance will be held in the ar-
mory at nine o’clock.
Tomorrow (Saturday) the Alumni-
Senior ball game will take place on
Beaver field at 10:15 a. m., to be fol-
lowed by the alumni luncheon. In the
afternoon the Penn State ball team
will face Syracuse in their last game
of the season. In the evening The
Thespians will give their final per-
formance which will be followed with
! dancing in the armory, 9 to 12 o’clock.
The annual baccalaureate sermon in
the auditorium, on Sunday morning,
vill be delivered by Bishop Robert L.
Harris, of Marquette, Mich. On Sun-
day afternoon at 2:30 the cadet band
will give a sacred concert on the cam-
pus, and the choral societies will give
a concert in the evening.
Class day exercises will be held in
an open air amphitheatre on the front
campus at ten o’clock Monday morn-
ing, and the commencement exercises
proper will be held in the auditorium
at 3 o’clock on Monday afternoon, at
which time Judge Wendell Philips
Stafford, justice of the Supreme court
of the District of Columbia, will make
the address to the more than five hun-
dred members of the graduating class.
The president’s reception and the
Senior dance will be held in the even-
ing. Every indication points to a
large attendance at all the commence-
ment exercises.
Woman’s Club Elects Officers.
At the May meeting of the Wom-
an’s club, of Bellefonte, the following
officers were elected for the ensuing
President, Mrs. Gregg Curtin; vice
president, Mrs. W. Harrison Walker;
recording secretary, Mrs. Roy Wilkin-
son; corresponding secretary, Mrs.
Jacob Hoy; treasurer, Miss Helene A.
Williams; auditor, Mrs. Eben Bower;
member-at-large, Mrs. Frank Hoag.
Under the competent leadership of
Mrs. Curtin and her able assistants
another very successful year is being
looked forward to by members of the
— Fifty per cent. of the people in
Bellefonte go to movie shows at one
time or another, many of them being
classed as regulars, and they are all
patrons of the Scenic. They go there
because they are sure of seeing good
pictures and the place is always de-
cently conducted and comfortable.
The Scenic was the first movie show
in Bellefonte and the fact that it has
held its patronage through a score of
years is a test of its high character.
Centre county,
; Bellefonte Team Leads Centre County
| Baseball League.
While the season has not yet swung
into an exciting baseball stride the
| Bellefonte team is leading the league
and gives promise of developing into
| a strong fighting unit in due course of
time. This does not mean, however,
that they will have everything their
' own way during the entire season, be-
‘cause such will hardly be the case.
‘Millheim and State College have
strong teams and Hecla Park has
splendid players, and all they need is
a little more seasoning and team work
to make them an aggregation to be
reckoned with as pennant contenders.
In last Thursday’s games Bellefonte
won from Millheim but it was by the
close score of 3 to 2, while State Col-
lege defeated Hecla Park 11 to 2.
Saturdays games, played in torrid
heat, were a test of the stamina of all
the players. State College played
ninth inning, with the score standing
10 to 10, Bellefonte made a run which
was not credited because of a peculiar
circumstance. The only thing to do
was file a protest and continue the
game, which they did and it ran
twelve innings, the final score being
State College 13, Bellefonte 12. The
protested run will be decided by the
president of the league and should it
be awarded to Bellefonte will mater-
ially change the percentage as given
below. Hecla got into the swim on
7 in an eleven inning game.
On Saturday Hecla will play at
Milheim while the game scheduled be-
tween State College and Bellefonte
has been postponed on account of
commencement at the College and the
auto races in Altoona, but it will be
played on Hughes field next Tuesday
evening, June 18th. On Thursday
play at Hecla Park and State Col-
lege at Millheim.

clubs to date:

Milesburg Trophy Gun Found in
Following close upon the heels of
the world war the patriotic citizens of
Milesburg bestirred themselves, raised
a sum of money and erected a monu-
ment on one of the principal streets
of the town in honor of the men from
that section who went forth to fight
for their country. The monument was
dedicated on October 20th, 1922, and
it was the biggest day the town has
ever had.
Two gatling guns obtained from
the War Department, were placed on
concrete bases, about a block apart on
the same street, as a fitting back-
ground to the monument. On Me-
morial day, when a detachment of
Troop B, of Bellefonte, went to Miles-
burg to assist in the memorial serv-
ices they found one of the guns in the
ditch at the side of the street and the
concrete base broken.
While there is no definite informa-
tion that the gun was thrown from
its pedestal by some person malicious-
ly inclined, citizens of the town are
aroused over what they deem an un-
patriotic act, whether wilful or other-
wise. The gun was replaced by the
members of the Bellefonte troop and
later decorated with all due solemnity.
Should it again be removed from its
resting place and thrown into the
ditch an effort will be made to dis-
cover the perpetrators.
