Night. Bellefonte Only Station
Between New York and
Durin~ eo past month airplanes
have bee» uying over Bellefonte at
night like bats chasing flies, all for
the purpose of acquainting the various
pilots with night-flying and landing
preliminary to the inauguration of the |
night airmail service, which became
an established fact on Wednesday
night. With the inauguration of the
service between New York and Chica-
go, the United States is now in the
forefront of any country in the world
in airmail service, and Bellefonte is
the only town in Pennsylvania desig-
nated as a regular stopping place.
It might here be stated that Belle-
fonte and Centre county people cele-
brated the beginning of the night
service in an appreciative manner.
The Kiwanis club was in charge and a
crowd of people variously estimated
at five thousand and upwards were on
the field and in cars parked all around
it. The first plane, carrying 300
pounds of mail and piloted by Dean
C. Smith, arrived at 9:41, being ex-
actly two hours on the trip from New
York. While the crew at the field
supplied his plane with gas and oil,
tested the stays, motor, etc.,, a com-
mittee of Kiwanians supplied the pi-
lot with sandwiches and hot coffee, :
cigars and cigarettes, and at 9:54 he’
took to the air and was on his way to
Cleveland. Shortly thereafter the I.
0. 0. F. band made its appearance
and there followed a program of mu-
sic, fireworks and brief speeches by
W. Harrison Walker and J. Kennedy
Johnston Esgs.: At exactly 11:47;
o'clock thz second ship west came in
piloted by J. D. Hill. This plane car-
ried a pouch of mail for Bellefonte
and also took on a pouch sent west
from the Bellefonte postoffice. Pilot
Hill was also supplied with refresh-
ments while his plane was gone over
and a few minutes after twelve o’clock
he sailed majestically away for Cleve-
land, and the big crowd lost little time
in getting off the field and leaving for
their various homes. The two east-
bound planes reached Bellefonte from
Cleveland at 12:23 and 2:46 o’clock
yesterday morning. They were pilot-
ed by Paul Collins and Charles Ames,
both of whom reached New York on
time. Included in the big crowd at the
field Wednesday night were people
week and among the many presents
received was a purse of $114 in gold’
coin. Mr. and Mrs. Woodring are
among Port Matilda’s best known and
most substantial residents.

— Mrs. Solomon Poorman, of
Bush’s Addition, had the misfortune
to fall, last Wednesday afternoon, and
fracture her left hip. This is her
third accident of a similar nature in
recent years, she having at different
times had her right leg and one arm’
broken as the result of falls.
Among the marriage licenses
granted at Cumberland, Md., last Fri-,
day were those of Harry S. Strickler,
of Bellefonte, and Velena Grace Ging-
her, of Milesburg; William Brooks
Bechdel, of Blanchard, and Florence
Gertrude Kitchen, of Beech Creek;
Robert Harvey Kitchen and Guila
Martha Wagner, both of Beech Creek.
Passenger train west on the '
Lewisburg branch of the Pennsylva-
nia railroad was wrecked at Paddy
mountain, on Wednesday morning,
when the baggage and express cars
were derailed, one turning over on its
side. One coach was also off the track
and it was necessary to send two
wrecking crews to. clean up the wreck.
Nobody was hurt. |
— Harry H. Ruhl, who sold his
barber shop and cigar store in Belle-
fonte six weeks ago with the intention
of going to Canada, then decided not
to leave the States, purchased a bar-
ber shop in Lewistown last week and
has located there. He almost got a
place in Reading but when he went to
close the deal the owner decided not
to sell so Lewistown got him in the
——An old, dilapidated Ford stood
on High street bridge on Tuesday. It
had seen many better days and its
wear and tear were in evidence from
the radiator to the tail light. But the
owner, whoever he is, must be some-
thing of a wag, at that, because paint-
ed on a badly worn tire hanging on
the rear were the words: “Don’t
laugh, sister; you’d look tough, too,
without paint.”
Edward J. Thompson, son of
Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Thompson, of Phil-

— Read the Scenic advertisement
published in this issue of the “Watch-
man” and you will be convinced that
it is one of the biggest and best
Fourth of July week programs of mo-
tion pictures ever offered the people of
Bellefonte and vicinity. Most every-
body relaxes a little after a strenuous
holiday and no better place can be
found to spend an evening than at the
Scenic. If you are not a regular pa-
from all portions of Centre county, as
well as Williamsport, Lock Haven,
Tyrone and Altoona.
Six years ago, when the Postoffice
Department decided to try the experi-
ment of carrying mail between New
York and Chicago Max Miller, who
blazed the trail for the flyers, selected
Bellcfonte as the main landing station
in Pennsylvania. While airmail trans-
portation was an experiment during
the first year or more it rapidly devel-
oped that it was a big stride in mail
carrying facilities. Most everybody
knows the progress that has been
made in the past six years and six
months ago the Department decided
on putting on a night service between
1 New York and Chicago as a means of
improving the service.
It was also announced at that time
that it would be necessary to secure a
new field as the old field on the Bea-
ver farm was too small for night land-
ing. Coincident with this announce-
ment neighboring towns began to set
up claims for a transfer of the field
and the “Watchman” was the only pa-
per in Centre county that never lost
faith in the field being kept here. And
much of the credit of its remaining in
this section is due to the manager of
the field, Fred J. Gelhaus. He spent
"day after day scouting around in the
vicinity of Bellefonte and personally
conducted the superintendent, J. E.
Witbeck, to a score or more locations
before a final selection was made.
This was on February 14th.
From that day to the present time
manager Gelhaus has virtually lived
‘on the new field, and it is largely due
to his assiduous work and manage-
ment that the field is in such good
shape today. He personally superin-
tended the grading of the field, erec-
tion of the big hangar and other build-
ings, the field lighting and everything
necessary to make it a convenient and
safe spot for the airmail service. And
when it is considered that the plant
as it stands today represents an ap-
proximate cost of upwards of $75,000,
it will be realized that it took some
hustling to have it all ready for reg-
ular night airmail service by July
The field, as has been stated before
in the “Watchman,” contains ninety
acres and is approximately square, af-
fording opportunity to land from
every point of the compass. It is 980
feet above sea level. It is surrounded
by a regular 2200 volt street lighting
circuit, in a series of 46 lights of 6.6
ampere globes, marking the boundary
of the field. Blue globes are used to
show the pilots the best approach to
the field and red lights to show dan-
gerous approaches, such as barns,
electric light poles, etc. To the north
approach there are two flood lights,
lighting up a small woods and farm
buildings. The hangar is illuminated
by twelve 200 c. p. globes in large re-
flectors. with an illuminated wind
cone to show the pilots the direction
of the wind current on the ground.
There is also a half million candle
power revolving beacon on the hangar
to guide the pilots to the field. When
the ship comes in sight of the field the
pilot signals with his wing lights and
the small revolving light is turned off
and the. half billion candle power

Inaugurated Wednesday
i ates the entire field and is used in
{landing and taking off.
Every possible precaution has been
taken to assure the safety of the pi-
"lots. The electric current which lights
the field is supplied by the Keystone
Power corporation, but emergency
lanterns have also been put up around
the border of the field to be used in
case of a break in the electric current,
and every ship is equipped with two
parachute flares suspended beneath
the fuselage. Should a pilot arrive
and find the field in darkness he sim-
ply presses a buttor. and releases a
flare which is set off automatically
and burns from five to seven minutes,
suspended in the air, emitting a pow-
erful light and affording the pilot
plenty of opportunity to make a safe
landing. These flares are also for use
in case of a forced landing between
Between New York and Cleveland
there are twenty-six emergency land-
ing fields and probably double that
number of beacon lights to guide the
pilots. The Bellefonte sector includes
in addition to the Bellefonte terminal
field all the emergency fields and bea-
con lights east to and including Ring-
{town and westward to and including
Brookville. The beacon light erected
on Nittany mountain has been moved
east to a point near Hecla gap, while
the light on Parsons mountain above
| Wingate has been moved to Point Mec-
| Coy and another beacon light installed
| on the Allegheny mountain near the
Rease Settlement.
As stated above the ships are equip-
ped with every known safety device
and in addition a system of signals
has been arranged whereby the care-
taker at every emergency landing field
can signal the pilot down in case of
bad weather ahead, or warn him of
an approaching storm; all the fields
being connected by telephone.
As another factor of safety night
ships will not be heavily loaded, being
confined to 250 to 300 pounds of mail
matter. When there is more than
this amount two ships will be used.
Since the first of June one hundred
and fifty night flights have been made
over the division by the various pilots
without an accident of any kind. The
night flying schedule provides for
leaving New York at 9:30 p. m.;
reaching Bellefonte at 11:30, Cleve-
land 2:20 and Chicago 5:45; twenty
minute stops being provided at each
station. The schedule east provides
for leaving Chicago at 8:30 p. m., ar-
fonte 3:30 and New York 6 a. m. The
Bellefonte mail for night planes will
close at 8 p. m. Ten cents an ounce
will be charged for night mail. The
night mail will in nowise affect ‘the
present day service.
The pilots who are now in the serv-
ice on this division are W. L. Smith,
Paul Collins, D. C. Smith, Earle F.
Ward, Charles H. Ames, Lloyd Ber-
taud, Harry Chandler and J. D. Hil
The personnel at the Bellefonte:
field is as follows: Fred J. Gelhaus,
manager, Forrest D. Tanner, crew
chief; Charles
Graham, clerks; W. H. Smith, stock
clerk; Samuel F. Weaver, Orin E.
Kline and Ellis L. Hines, motor me-
chanics; Alan Kamerer, rigger; Da-
vid K. Newcomer, electrician; John F.
Woods, mechanic helper; Willard Gil-
lette, mechanic; Miles Davis, mainte-
nance mechanic east; G. McClure
Gamble, maintenance mechanic west;

With the inauguration of the night
into two crews, which will alternate
every other week. No night flying
will be done on Saturday and Sunday
Now that night service has been in-
augurated visitors will not be permit-
ted on the field at night. This is nec-
essary for the safety of the pilots as
well as the public.
In conclusion it might be said that
every man connected with the airmail
service in Bellefonte, in any capacity
whatsoever, has worked loyally and
faithfully to reach the pinnacle at-
tained, and they feel just pride in the
fact that they now have one of the
best fields on the entire route and in
general efficiency stand right at the
Bellefonte Curb Market Improving.
Seven cars and two wagons were
lined up at the Bellefonte curb mar-
ket, on Saturday morning, which was
almost double the number in attend-
ance the week previous. The market
is also improving in the number and
variety of vegetables and produce of-
fered for sale, which is a natural con-
sequence of the advance of the sea-
son. That the curb market is appre-
ciated by the people of Bellefonte was
evidenced by the fact that most of the
truckers were sold out and ready to
leave for home by 7:30 o’clock.
It’s been a long time between
good, steady rains this summer, but
the one that fell on Monday was worth
waiting for. Coming on the heels of
the two rains of last week it has thor-
oughly saturated the ground and is
just what was badly needed for the
gardens and corn and potatoes. Of
course it was a little discouraging to
those farmers who cut hay the latter
part of the week with the intention of
hauling it in on Monday, but the hot
sun of Tuesday helped materially in
the drying process.

Dynamiting Streams for Trout Proves
Costly Sport.
until the
For some time past there has been
plenty of evidence that some person
or persons were dynamiting Spring
creek for trout but game and fish
wardens were unable to catch the
guilty parties. Finally a fish warden
from Blair county came to Bellefonte
and did a little quiet work with the
result that last Thursday Fred (Gan-
der) Meyers was caught almost in the
act. Two other men who were with
him made their escape but were later
arrested and proved to be B. M. Mey-
ers and Lee Cowher. Five trout and
five suckers, found in the possession
of Fred Meyers when he was arrested,
were confiscated and turned over to
the Bellefonte hospital. The officers
also secured a quantity of dynamite
caps that the men had been using in
their nefarious work.
The three men were given a hear-’
ing before justice of the peace S.
Kline Woodring, on Monday afternoon,
and all plead guilty—Cowher and B.
M. Meyers to dynamiting for fish, and
they were each fined $100 and costs.
Fred Meyers plead guilty to dynamit-
ing for fish, for which he was fined
$100; taking five trout illegally, for"
which the fine was $50, and fishing °
without a license, fine $25.
men took advantage of the Act of the
Legislature which permits them pay-
ing the fine and costs in installments,
giving bail as security. Fred Mey-
ers paid 350 down on his fines and
costs and gave security to cover the

ing from Morrisdale to Williamsport,

and the van and its contents were en-
veloped in flames.
A fire alarm was sent in and both
companies responded as quickly as
possible and the flames were extin-
guished with chemicals, but not be-
fore considerable damage had been
done—mostly, however, te the bed-
ding and clothing in the van. The
furniture was not burned to any ex-

A lighted lantern which one of
the men was carrying while the gas

for the explosion, although it might
have occurred from some other cause.
Kiwanians Will Combat on Baseball
An item in the “Watchman” last
week referred to a Kiwanian baseball
league which has been organized by
Kiwanian clubs in Altoona, Tyrone,
Bellefonte and Philipsburg and you
will have an opportunity to witness a
game between teams from Philips-
burg and Bellefonte, on Hughes ficld
next Thursday afternoon, July 9th, at
3:30 o’clock. The price of admission
will be 25 cents, which will be cheap
for the sport in anticipation. When it
is considered that Kiwanis clubs are
almost universally composed of staid
business men it is easy to conceive
that all of them are, or should be, in
the “has<been” baseball class, and the
game they will put up should be fuller
of fun than a cocoanut is of milk. For
this reason we advise everybody to
spend their Thursday afternoon holi-
day on Hughes field.
Who Wants to Go to Florida Next

cost for the winter season. He has set
his heart on going but his wife don't

looking for a man who would like to
spend the winter there. All it will
cost him is the living expenses, as
there will be no rent to pay and the
gentleman in question will take him
to Florida and back in his car. So
there you are. Any one interested
