UNCLE SAM HOUSES
SOME OF HIS ENVOYS.
It has long been a standing joke
that a traveler around the world ean
usualy find the U. S. consular office in
any large city by picking out the rat-
tiest looking business house in sight.
The ambassador, if poor, might be
found over a delicatessen store or
saloon, and if rich, in a home in the
residential section—paid for out of
his own pocket.
But now Uncle Sam owns 11 legation
or embassy buildings, and is gradually
acquiring more. The first to be ac-
quired and used was at Oslo, capital
of Norway—a 20 room building that
fills the bill decently without lavish-
ness. At the time of its purchase,
1921, $150,000 was appropriated for
an embassy at Paris. But this was
too little for the big city, so double
. the sum was asked for, and finally ap-
propriated in 1923. In the meantime
Ambassador Herrick, seizing the
occasion, took $200,000 of his own
money and bought the palace of a
former president of France. By the
time the government money was
ready for him his investment was
worth $315,000 through the improve-
ment in exchange of the franc.
In London the government owns an
adequate home for its embassy
through the charity of the late J.
Pierpont Morgan. Congress voted
$150,000 to alter and improve this
gift house, but the money has not yet
been used, or the house either.
Besides the home for envoys in
Oslo, Paris and London Uncle Sam
owns others at Havana, Mexico City,
Santiago, Chile, San Salvador, Salava-
dor, and San Jose, Costa Rica. There
is now an act in force, passed in 1911,
which allows ‘the government. to
spend $500,000 a year for buildings
and grounds in foreign capitals.
Only about $2,000,000 has been spent
since then, but the present outlook
is that our diplomatic representatives
in all important government centres
will in the future be provided with
houses to work in—just as all foreign
countries are at Washington.—Ex.
The design of the $600,000 memor-
ial mausoleum that will be erected at
Marion, Ohio, to hold the bodies of
President and Mrs. Harding has been
approved. The building, which will be
somewhat similar in apearance to
the Lincoln memorial at Washington,
though not as large, is expected to be
unveiled in 1927.
Plans call for a circular structure of
granite 80 feet in diameter and 50 feet
high. It will have no roof. Two
colonades will encircle the building
which will be of Greek design. Inthe
center of the memorial will be the
tomb, near which a willow tree will be
planted. Former Senator Frelinghuy-
sen, of N. J., is president of the Hard-
ing Memorial Association which is
raising a fund by popular subscription
to complete the undertaking.
Pending completion of the memorial
the Harding temporary vault at
Marion is still gaurded by a detach-
ment of men of the 10th infantry.
Twenty-six enlisted men in command
of one officer have maintained con-
stant vigil since the body of the late
President was placed theve. Mrs.
. Harding, whose remains now rest be-
side those of her husband, knew every
one in the detachment by name and
often showed the soldiers personal fa-
A bronze bust of Mr. Harding was
recently unveiled on the grounds of
the national Elk’s home at Bedford,
Va. It is the gift of Elks in Maryland,
Delaware and the District of Colum-
bia. The President was a member of
A proposed Harding highway will
connect Washington, D. C., and San
Francisco through Marion, Ohio, the
Harding home. The route is now laid
out between Washington and Denver.
It is nearly paved from the capital to
Indiana. It is designed to avoid the
congestion of the large cities.
PARASITES OF DOGS.
“Next to distemper, the greatest
injury is done to dogs by parasites,”
states Dr. T. E. Munce, Director of
the Bureau of Animal Industry, Penn-
sylvania Department of Agriculture.
Both the worms which live in the in-
testines and the mites, lice and fleas
which live in or whithin the skin are
injurious. Furthermore, a number of
the parasites of dogs are transmissi-
ble to man and to live stock, and con-
versely. The importance, then, of
keeping the dog free of parasites can
scarcely be too greatly emphasized.
Dogs acquire their parasites by com-
ing in contact with infested prem-
ises or infested animals. The con-
trol of parasites in dogs, therefore,
takes two lines; prevention and treat-
In all cases where parasitism is
suspected or known to exist, the dog
owner should call in his local practic-
ing veterinarian who, after a proper
diagnosis, will prescribe the proper
prevention and treatment. The treat-
ment of dogs for parasites is in gen-
eral effective, and if properly carried
out will in a large proportion of cases
bring about the results desired.
25 Killed by Autos.
Twenty-five persons were killed and
252 injured in 267 automobile aec-
cidents on State Highways during
August, according to reports made to
the State Highway Department. In
seven accidents the drivers of the
moter vehicles were intoxicated.
The district comprising Fayette,
Greene and Washington counties led
in the number of accidents, with 62.
The reports show that 212 accidents
occured on wet roads, five at railroad
crossings, 26 at road crossings, ten at
bridges, three at culverts, 1156 on
straight road sections, 56 on light
curves, six on light grades, and three
on heavy grades.
Sunday was the. worst day for ac-
cidents, with 58 accidents occurring on
Sundays during the month.

Raymond S. Melroy, wife, and Mrs.
Langley, enthusiastic advocates of
football, took in the animated game
at State College on Saturday last. In
their opinion the F. and M. are out of

county, eldest brother of Mrs. John

Mr. and Mrs. H. T. Noll, our Ford
outfit, left last Friday in their air-
plane for New York city. They ex-

the trip was just two hours. That
surely was going some.
Teachers and parents cannot per-
form a higher service for their. pu-
pils and children than by leading them
to see that a beneficent Creator has
formed them according to His own
idea, and that any willful distortion of
the body is a sin as well as folly. This
they should impress not only by pre-
cept but by example.
Earl Rimmey, wife and young son,
joined by Mrs. John Herman and Mrs.
John Baumgardner, of Lemont, took
a motor trip over to Alport, Clear-
field county, on Saturday last, to visit
the George Baumgardner family. The
Rimmeys returned home the day fol-
lowing, but Mrs. Herman and Mrs.
Baumgardner will remain with broth-
er George for a week or two.
Whiterock quarries is running fuil
time and then some. Quite a number
of the employees are swelling their
envelopes with over-time money. The
situation is sometimes embarrassing
since they have to use every available
means to fill the incoming orders.
However, it beats working half time
to a frazzle. Heavy needed improve-
ments and.good management wins.
There is in every city or town a
leading set in society which aspires to
exclusiveness and desires to be looked
upon as the cream, in a social way, of
the place. The manners of those for-
tunate enough to claim membership in
this charmed circle are not more re-
fined than are those whom they pro-
fess to look down upon. They do not
possess all the learning in the vicini-
ty; although they usually have a good
share of the riches. They are not the
most talented, the most moral, the
most philanthropic, nor all in all, of
the best parentage, but they insist
they are the best and that settles it.
Pretentions do not constitute a true
social status. Many of these pretend-
ers do serious harm, and many of
them are laughed at.
are Called But Few
Out of every 100 young people who
finish the fifth grade in public schools,
only two continue their education far
enough to win a college diploma, ac-
cording to R. L. Sackett, dean of the
school of engineering at The Penn-
sylvania State College.
Only sixteen of each 100 finishing
the fifth grade get so far as to be
graduated from high school. And of
these sixteen, only seven start in at
college. Two of the seven, on the
average, complete the college work
and win diplomas. Usually only one-
third of those entering college are
graduated. This percentage varies
widely with different colleges. At
Penn State, for example, almost half
of those who enter as freshmen con-
tinue through to graduation. How-
ever, more stringent rules have been
inaugurated at State College, and
under an “honor point” system it is
anticipated that there will be fewer to
finish within the alloted time of four
Penn State Graduates Figure in
The designing and flying of the U.
S. Navy airplane PN-9 No. 1, which
recently had such a venturesome
time on its Pacific flight, was in the
hands of two graduates of The Penn-
sylvania State College. Lieutenant
Byron J. Connell, graduated in 1918,
sat at the controls of the plane on all
but one hour of its 22-hour flight, a
very noteworthy feat. The designing
of the “ship” is credited to H. S.
Cocklin, a graduate in the class of
1914 at Penn State. Until a few years
ago he was a member of the college
engineering school faculty. Last May
he was officially commended when the
PN-9 type of seaplane completed a
non-stop flight record of over 28
hours. He supervised the assembling
of the No. 1 and saw its take-off on
the voyage to Hawaii.
Five Fined for Selling Watered Butter
Five dealers in Philadelphia were
recently fined $100 each for selling
butter containing almost 30 per cent.
moisture. The State pure food law
allows a maximum of 16 per cent.
moisture. The lowest amount of mois-
ture found in the five official samples
taken from the prosecuted dealers was
26 per cent. and the highest almost 31

Mothers to be Guests of Penn State
Mothers of students at The Pennsyl-
vania State College are this week re-
ceiving invitations from the college to
attend the first “Penn State Mothers’
day” at the institution on Saturday, i —
October 17. Students themselves are en
urging their mothers to visit the
college for this occasion.
The demand for an observance of
Mothers’ day at Penn State came at
last spring’s meeting of the Associa-
tion of Parents of Penn State on the
annual Fathers’ day. An early fall
date was suggested so as to give
mothers of students an opportunity to
observe the environment provided for
their sons and daughters soon after
the college year started. A student
committee is arranging entertainment
for the mothers. Special features
will be provided in addition to two
football games, fraternity dances,
and a recital by Harold Bauer,
