Member of Boal Troop Meets Death
on Way to Lewistown
George Stewart Callahan, a member
of Troop A, 52nd machine gun squad-
ron, formerly the Boal troop, “of
Boalsburg, was thrown from a ma-
chine gun truck near Reedsville, on
Friday, July 3rd, while enroute to
Lewistown for the big military parade
on Saturday, and injured so badly that
town hospital.
Some eight or nine men were on the
truck on its trip over the Seven moun-
tains. Going down the hill near
Reedsville the drive s§&#ft broke and
the rear end dropping to the ground
threw the rear end of the truck into
the air. Callahan was thrown irom
his seat onto the hard paved,
sustaining a serious fracture of the
skull. First class private John A.
Stoner was the driver of the truck,
and he stuck to the wheel, succeeding
in swerving the heavy machine from
the roadway into a nearby barnyard
where it came to a standstill. Not-
withstanding the fact that most of the
guardsmen were more or less injured
they hastened to the aid of private
Callahan. Help was quickly summon-
ed from Lewistown and Major Kohler
and son Frank responded. Callahan
was rushed to the Lewistown hospital
and an operation performed at once,
but the fracture was too serious and
he died in less than an hour.
The other injured men were Sergt.
George W. Traxler, of Milroy, fract-
ured ankle and numerous bruises and
Sergt. George W. Taylor, of Boals-
burg, bruised leg.
Private first class Clarence T. Ma-
ben, of Milroy, bruised hip.
Private Glenn Tressler, of Linden
Hall, knee bruised.
Private first class Stirl A. Stover,
of Boalsburg, bruised hip.
Private John L. McCool, of Milroy,
sprained back.
All the men were taken to the hos-
pital to have their injuries looked
after, but all were able to return to
their homes but Sergt. Traxler. The
troop must have had a hoodoo over it
on that day. During its four month’s
service on the Mexican border in 1916
it did not have a single casualty, but
on July 3rd the casualty list number-
ed nine, one proving a.fatality.
Private Callahan, who was serving
| his first year of enlistment, was a son
of Mr. and Mrs. James Cailahan, of
Boalsburg, and was born near Centre
20 ryears, 5 months and 18 days old.
He:is survived by his parents and
these brothers and sisters: Norman,
Elwood, William, James, Margaret
and Robert, all at home.
The remains were brought from
Lewistown to the troop barracks, at
Boalsburg, where they lay in state
until Sunday afternoon when funeral
services were held. Rev. W. J. Wag-
ner made a very impressive talk. The
troop attended in a body and was aug-
mented by the presence of Major H.
Laird Curtin, Capt. Russell T. George,
and a number of members of Troop
B, of Bellefonte. The remains were
conveyed to Centre Hall and laid to
rest in the cemetery at that place.
Youth Another Truck
Accident Victim.
Charles Musser, seventeen year old
son of Mr. and Mrs. H. G. Musser, of
Unionville, and mail carrier between
the station and postoffice, died at the
Centre County hospital, at 6:30
o'clock last Friday morning, of in-
juries received in a motor truck acci-
dent at the Unionville station on
Thursday morning. The young man,
whose father is station agent at Un-
‘jonville, was leaning against the sta-
tion platform watching the Miller
Construction company employees
transfer crushed stone from a rail-
road car to a truck which had been
backed up on one of the tracks.
The driver of the truck was Carl
Flick and when he saw a fast freight
west approaching he was unable to
get the motor started. He jumped to
save himself and the locomotive,
striking the truck, threw it around
against the station platform. Young
Musser either failed to realize his
danger or was unable to get out of
the way, as he was caught and crush-
ed between the heavy truck and the
platform. He was brought to Belle-
fonte on the 9:40 train and taken to
the hospital but nothing could be done
to save his life.
He was born and raised in Union-
ville and in addition to his parents is
survived by the following brothers
and sisters: Virginia, Paul, Cathe-
rine and a baby brother. Funeral
services were held at the home at two
o’clock on Sunday afternoon by Rev.
M. C. Piper, burial being made in the
upper Unionville cemetery.

Union Open Air Services.
The churches of Bellefonte will
unite in an open air service on the
lawn between the jail and the court
house, beginning July 19th, at 6:30 p.
m., and will continue each Sunday

New Eagleville Minister an Ex-
Service Man.
Harry D. Wheaton preached his
first sermon as pastor of the Christian
church at Eagleville, on Sunday, July
5th. He is a native of West Virginia
and it was while serving as a wireless
operator on troop transports during
the war that he heard the call to the
“If 1 did not answer God’s call and
become a minister, I could never look
up to Him again,” were the words he
employed to convey to the young wife
at home his determination to become
a minister. Not having even the ad-
vantage of a completed high school
course he was compelled to take up
this work in addition to the course
which is essential to the study of the
ministry, working in mills and other
places to procure funds which were
needed to pay for his tuition. Harry
“made the riffle,” and stood before W.
H. Fields and the elders and deacons
of the First Christian church to re-
ceive his ordination as a good soldier
of Jesus Christ, devoting a life to a
warfare against evil.
Since the last issue of the

cupied by Miss Lida Morris.

from New York to Spend Two
Weeks in Centre County.
The recent appeal from the New
York Tribune to the people of Belle-
fonte and vicinity on behalf of the
tenement children of New York city
has met with a cordial response and
arrangements have been completed to
entertain two hundred children, rang-
ing in age from six to sixteen years,
for two weeks. They will arrive at

march to the Scenic whence they will

Howard and Julian. The committee,
of which Rev. Reed O. Steely is chair-
man, has worked zealously to assure
a happy, healthy time to these pro-

and, no doubt, there will be benefit and
pleasure for all concerned.
There are always some of these
children who need clothing and con-
tributions will be welcomed by Miss
Daise L. Keichline, 209 east Bishop
street, and Mrs. W. Harrison Walker,

‘Five Prisoners Escaped from Rock-
view on Night of July 5th.
Taking advantage of the regular
Sunday night movie show in the big
dormitory five prisoners escaped from
the Rockview penitentiary about 8:30
o’clock on Sunday evening, July 5th.
The men were members of the last
batch of one hundred inmates trans-
ferred to Rockview from the eastern
penitentiary at Philadelphia.
They were George Mitchell, of Phil-
adelphia county, serving from two
and a half years to five for attempted
robbery. His maximum sentence
would expire in January, 1929.
Earl Green, of Montgomery county,
doing five to ten years for burglary,
larceny and receiving stolen goods.
He was sentenced in November, 1924.
Leonard Burkhead, of Philadelphia
county, serving from one and a half
to three years for larceny. He was
sentenced in January, 1925. ’
James Lee, of Philadelphia county,
sentenced in January, 1925, for two
and a half to five years for operating
an automobile without the consent of
the owner and larceny.
John Chapman, of Dauphin county,
serving a sentence of one and a half
to three years for felonious entry, lar-
ceny and receiving stolen goods. He
was sent up in April, 1924.
The men were missed before nine
o’clock and one of the prisoners ad-
mitted seeing them outside the stock-
ade about 8:30 o’clock. Investigation
showed that they had climbed over the
barbed wire enclosure near the office
buildings. Guards led by deputy war:
den W. J. McFarland, promptly took
up the chase, being considerably han-
dicapped by the fact that the records
and photos of the prisoners had not
yet been received from the Pittsburgh
The first definite trace of the fugi-
tives was had on Tuesday when it was
learned that early that morning five
men, answering to the description of
the escaped prisoners, had stolen a
Ford car from the garage of J. W.
Philips, at Boalsburg, and had gone
to Potters Mills and across the Seven
mountains==The next day the car was
found abandoned over in the vicinity
of Mifflin, but the men had all disap-
Information furnished state police
by a woman led to the re-capture last
Thursday afternoon, of George Mitch-
ell and John Chapman at Summerdale,
near Harrisburg. Leonard Burkhead
was also sighted by the officers but
made his escape. Penitentiary au-
thorities were notified of the capture
and went after the two men, bring-
ing them to Bellefonte on Friday
morning. A special session of court
was held, the escaped prisoners given
the customary penitentiary sentence
and the same afternoon they were
taken out to Pittsburgh by sheriff
Taylor and two deputies. They were
also held in $1,000 bail on the charge
of stealing the Philips automobile.
Leonard Burkhead, the third of the
five prisoners to escape, was captured
near Harrisburg on Friday. At a ses-
sion of court, on Monday morning, he
plead guilty to breaking and escap-
ing and also to breaking and entering
and the larceny of an automobile. He
was given a duplicate of his original
sentence, one and a half to three years,
for breaking and escaping, and an ad-
ditional one to two years for breaking
and entering, sentence being suspend-
ed on the larceny count in the indict-
eee flere.
Chemical Lime Co. Put OX Another
Biz Blast.
Shortly after midnight on Monday
night of last week, there was a rumb-
ling noise and then an explosion that
shook most of the houses in Belle-
fonte, and those people unfortunate
enough to be awake and feel and hear
it had visions of an earthquake, but
such was not the case. It was merely
another of the big blasts put off in
the quarry of the Chemical Lime and
Stone company. One carload of dy-
namite and three thousand feet of
TNT were used and it is estimated
that over one hundred thousand tons
of rock and earth, mostly rock, how-
ever, were dislodged. Three huge
steam shovels began work the next
day scooping up the rock and sending
it by ten ton cars to feed the hungry
maw of the ponderous crusher which
grinds out a whole train load of cars
every day to keep the state road sork
in Bald Eagle valley on the move.
