‘BAD EFFECT OF
Repression of Human Ener
gy Most Unwise.
Monotony of work and the insid-
fous growth of pessimistic revery un-
der conditions of monotony are ser-
ious problems of our “machine ridden”
civilization. The mental life of man is
dynamic; an effort to achieve is es-
sential. Deny this effort, or leave it
unguided, and there supervenes a
mental attitude described Ly the
Freudians as “repression.” :
It 1s possible, of course, for an in-
dividual to mold himself to a routine
and to compensate his failing interest
in life by taking pride in his rose
garden, house or family, Elton Mayo
writes in Harper's Magazine. But the
compensating achievement is not al-
ways so fortunaie, and in any case
some degree of defeat is implied—
“some of him lived, but most of him
The human desire to achieve is es-
sentially social; there is a fundamen-
tal urge not merely to stand well
with one’s fellows, but also to collabo-
rate with them in a social task. When
this initiative is denied and turned
aside it only rarely finds another
equally satisfactory outlet. More of-
ten than not it turns upon and mani-
fests itself in the form of disintegrat-
ing moods of pessimism,
There are few machine shops in
America or elsewhere which do not
run a noisy accompaniment to a ris-
ing tide of human defeat. This is not
necessary; some enlightened employ-
ers have demonstrated that it can be
avoided, but widely over the indus-
trial field the assertion remains true.
The machine shop is a potent agency
of repression or Jperversion of human
energy; that civilization disregards
this fact is the great stupidity of our
This is stupid because it is unneces-
sary; civilization does everything to
accentuate the problem, nothing to
mitigate it. Under present conditions
of education and social life the aver-
age individual inevitably develops ir-
rationalities of attitude, superstitions,
fears, hatreds. These minor abnor-
malities of outlook matter little if by
a fortunate chance life offers such an
individual a happily vigorous and suf
ficiently varied occupation.
But should monotony chiefly charac-
terize his dally work his fears and
superstitions grow, his mental garden
is uncultivated and is overrun by the
poisonous weeds of unhealthful rev-
ery. It is this attitude in the mind-
behind-the-scenes of the defeated
worker which gives rise to all forms
of “unrest” and to the incessant shift
of “travelers” from one occupation te
News photographers are accustomed
to working in dangerous places, but
G. A. Shoemacher of the army air serv-
ice is said to be the only one who
risks his life regularly by falling in
order to take pictures, says Popular
With three small motion-picture
cameras strapped to his belt and a
parachute on his back, this daring
photographer, a senior instructor in
parachute jumping, leaps from the
wing of a Martin bomber.
As he falls, he looks about him
calmly, taking photographs of bits of
scenery or other objects of interest.
If the parachute opens properly and
he lands safely, he then has for sale
several photographs that are of un-
usual value and interest.—Washington
The channels of New York harbor
cannot be dredged by the ordinary
dredge because of the subway tunnels
that run under it and at places come
comparatively near the floor of the
harbor. An ordinary dredge might dip
too deep and break through the wall
of one of these tunnels.
So the United States government
which has charge of all navigable wa-
ters, has had large electric dredges
built. These dredges lower a great
sieve and tube to the harbor bottom
and then powerful electrically driven
suction pumps draw up the silt which
is clogging a channel without running
the risk of damaging the transporta-
tion tunnels built below the harbor
The Stage Robber
“There are no more stage robbers in
the West,” said Edgar Selwyn, the mil-
lionaire playwright, at an after-theater
supper, “but here in New York—
“*‘Were you ever held up by stage
robbers?” a foreigner asked a New
Yorker the other day.
“ ‘Well, sald the New Yorker, ‘a
Follies girl in a downtown cabaret last
night got away with $73 worth of
broiled lobster and bootleg champagne
at my expense.’”

ARTIST IN PIQUE
SPOILS ART WORK
Splendid Memorial Model
Lost to World.
When Gutzon Borglum destroyed the
models for the great Stone mountain
memorial, to be chiseled as a reminder
of the South and her leaders, he set an
example that has been followed by an-
other artist 4,000 miles away.
The city of Milan has been holding
a contest among artists for a design of
a monument to be erected in honor of
the city's sons who fell in the World
war. Many and varied and beautiful
have been the designs submitted. Yet
none seems to have filled the want as
expressed by the jury of award. They
want something different from any me-
morial yet erected. They want some-
thing that shall be eternal, that shall
breathe of sacrifice, liberty and glory.
They want something everlasting but
lyrical, E. M, L. writes In the New
The design entitled “Alla Gloria” by
Giannino Castiglioni seems to have
won the greatest number of admirers.
It is a gorgeous thing. Upon the top
of twelve great marble pillars are
twelve figures representative of twelve
great battles of the war. Six on a side,
these pillars form a wide design In the
center of which is a solitary stone.
Flanked by wide marble steps are two
figures which seem to indicate grief
and pride of achievement, The whole
is too beautiful to stand the wear and
tear of the years.
And the judges want something that
will last forever. They seem to want
a great pyramid, not a Temple of
Ephesus; they want an Alp or a Hima-
laya, not a Leaning Tower of Pisa or
a Milan cathedral. They seem willing
to abandon beauty for durability. They
want something set upon a hill in Mi-
lan that will strike the visitor imme-
diately upon his arrival, something
that will be seen from afar.
“Alla Gloria” was a beautiful thing.
It is so no longer. The artist was dis-
gusted with the failure of the jury to
accept his design. He did not take an
ax in hand and destroy it in a fit of
temper. He, it seems, talked it over
with other artists whose designs had
not received recognition, These artists
—since misery loves company—did not
continue to advocate the surpassing
beauty of their own efforts. They
concentrated their displeasure upon
the failure of “Alla Gloria” to win
recognition. So, apparently with the
concurrence of the designer, they de-
stroyed the model of a very beautiful
Paper From Asphalt
Heavy paper is now being made by
the use of asphalt. After the fibrous
materials have been treated, to re-
move impurities, they are macerated,
pulped, wit. water and formed into
sheets by pressure and dried by heat.
Much paper and cardboard for wrap-
pers, cartons, and the like consists
of a layer of cheaper material be-
tween sheets of better quality. The
aim of the new process is to give a
better product, made proof against
water and vermin, and this accom-
plished by substituting the asphalt
layer for the inferior filling. This lay-
er is a thin sheet of pulp into which
an emulsion of liquid asphalt with a
small amount of suitable clay and suf-
ficient water are introduced. One or
more of the iizpermeable asphalt lay-
ers are used between the sheets of
plain pulp, and the resulting heavy
paper or fiber board is claimed to be
not only waterproof, but about 20 per
cent stronger and inore durable than
ordinary paper or pulp-board of like

to note that a number of the men who

Thought She Meant It
Buddy and Doris were washing, get-
ting ready for the evening meal. They
are five and three, respectively. Fear-
ing Doris would not be able to wring
the wash cloth dry, Buddy was told to
do it for her.
At the end of half an hour neither
of the children had come from the
bathroom, and on investigation the
mother was told by ner young son:
“You told me to wring it dry, mother,
but I just can’t.”
Mother says she will never again
ask a five-year-old to wring another
wash cloth “dry.”
William Jeffries of Cedarville, N. J.,
wanted to profit by the rain which had
fallen. His field was all prepared for
a heavy planting of sweet potatoes,
but the roots were not on hand. He
telephoned to Vineland and found that
he could obtain plants there, An air-
plane got the roots and brought them
direct to the farm in ten minutes. The
pilot did not stop, but dropped his bur-
den unharmed as he circled low over
the field. The field was comfortably
planted before the ground dried.

THE FAIR SEASON IS ON.

thousand fairs. ;
In 1810, an attendance of about five
thousand; in 1925 an estimated at-
tendance of approximately twenty-five
These figures, in a nutshell, tell the
story of the marvelous growth of the
American fair from the humblest be-
ginning to its present day status as an
important factor in agricultural edu-
cation. They are of especial interest
here in view of the approaching fair
which will be held from August 29th
to September 5th, at Centre Hall.
While the fair idea has been taken
hold of tremendously in the United |
States, it is not native to this country.
Fairs run back to ancient days, but in
the olden times they were more after
the manner of a bazaar or market,
only held with less frequency, very
much like the fairs in vogue in Ger-
many and other European countries
today. The American fair traces its
ancestry back only to about the mid-
dle of the eighteenth century, when a
group of progressive farmers in the
Tees River valley in northwestern
Britain joined to bring their livestock
together for comparison. It has been
termed the first agricultural fair and
was the model after which were pat-
terned the hundreds of country fairs
both here and in England.
ORIGIN OF FAIRS.
Elkanah Watson, of New York, has
been credited with being the father of
the American fair. In 1815 Watson
organized the agricultural society of
Albany, N. Y., and proceeded to estab-
lish fairs and cattle shows in the
neighboring counties. In 1819, due
mainly to his influence, the New York !
Legislature appropriated ten thousand
dollars a year for six years for pre-
miums on agricultural
manufacture products. In 1832 the
State agricultural society was found-
ed and work started in other eastern
States. But while Watson was busy
converting farmers and Legislators to
the value of fairs, the Columbian Ag-
ricultural society held what is believ- !
ed to be the first exhibition of its
kind in Washington, D. C., in 1810.
inaugurated regular agricultural ex-
hibits, and from these first small ef-'
forts grew up our system of commu-
nity, county, State, district, national ;
and international fairs -which cover
bra “tically every section of the coun-

The appealing thing about the coun-
ty fair is the opportunity it offers the
farmer to compare his own work with
that of his neighbors and so inspires
in him a healthy ambition to improve
himself and his work. Within easy
distance of his home, he can examine
the best animals, grains, fruits and
vegetables, poultry and honey and de-
termine where he falls short of the,
mark. Likewise his wife can pit her |
needlework, her~baking and pastry,
her canned fruits and vegetables
against those of other farm women
and enjoy the thrill and reward that
comes of victory. Altogether the
country fair stimulates friendly com-
petition that has been responsible for
much of the farm progress in the past

that are part of all the better fairs is
one of the most commendable fea-
tures. State and federal government
exhibits bring home to the farmer les-
sons in growing his products more ec-
onomically and efficiently, and house-
hold furnishings and labor saving de-
vices in view work directly for the im-
provement of ceuntry life.

Are You Tired, Achy---
All Run Down?
This Bellefonte Resident Tells You
How to Get Well.
Tired all the time?
Lame, stiff and achy ?
Tortured with nagging backache ?
Knife-like twinges when you stoop
Miserable with headaches, dizzy
spells and bladder irregularities?
All are signs of kidney sickness!
Use Doan’s Pills—a stimulant diu-
retic to the kidneys.
Here’s Bellefonte testimony:
William Bottorf, E. Lamb St., says:
“A cold settled in my kidneys and I
had backache. A dull misery in the
small of my back made my work te-
dious. Mornings my back felt stiff
and sore. My kidneys became weak
and I had to pass the secretions often.
A tired, worn-out feeling took away
my energy and I also had headaches
and dizzy spells. After using one box
of Doan’s Pills, from Parrish’s drug
store, I was cured.”
