A Day with the Public Health Nurse.

tory answer is found in one of her

Football on the Farm.
Lawrence Harnish, of B. H. S., Snow
Shoe Intersection and way stations,
recently gave a remarkable demon-
stration of the value of football train-
ing. A cow on the Harnish farm had
broken loose and was galloping blind-
ly, or whatever cows do under the cir-
cumstances, toward a deep pit in one
corner of the field. Lawrence, visual-
izing a steady and monotonous diet of
beef for the next month, endeavored
to head her bovine majesty away from
disaster but to no avail. As a last re-
sort he made a flying tackle and
brought the animal to earth on the
edge of the hole, thereby insuring a
variety in his meals and at the same
time answering those critics who be-
moan the time spent by the youth of
the land in learning football.
The Ballinger company, archi-
tects of Philadelphia, have completed ! 5 : :
the plans for the Ty chapter house | ton lived at Pine Grove Mills and are

Upsilon chapter of the Alpha Sigma
Phi fraternity. It will be located at
the southeast corner of Prospect and
Berry avenues on a lot 83 by 43 feet.
The building will be three stories and
basement in the Colonial type of arch-
itecture with walls of local stone laid
and have a slate roof. Broad porches
are provided at each end of the build-
ing in the first story, the roofs of
which form open air porches in the
second story.
TAYLOR.—R. B. Taylor died very
unexpectedly, at the Centre County
hospital, at 11:45 o’clock on Tuesday
night as the result of an attack of
acute indigestion. He only recently
had recovered from a siege of pneu-
monia and on Tuesday ate quite hear-
tily at noontime and in the evening.
During the latter part of the evening
he sauntered into Bon Mot where he
spent some time. Along about 10:45
o’clock he complained to James Cald-
well about a sharp pain in his left
shoulder and at the latter’s suggestion
they walked up street to Dr. Rodger’s
office. The doctor made a hurried ex-
amination’ and sent him to the hospi-
tal at once. Strenuous measures were
resorted to but all to no avail, and he
died at 11:45.
Robert B. Taylor was a son of Hugh
and Anna Taylor and was born in
Bellefonte on February 18th, 1874,
hence was 51 years and 9 months old.
His entire life was spent in Bellefonte.
As a boy he attended the public
schools and later worked with his
father who for a number of years was
in charge of the steam heat and gas
plant. He later engaged in the retail
coal business in Bellefonte and about
twenty years ago decided to enter the
field of highway contracting. Among
his operations in road building were
sections near Sandy Ridge, the high-
way from Bellefonte to Milesburg, the
Linn, Allegheny and Bishop street
improvement through Bellefonte, the
brick paving on Water and Willow-
bank streets, and sections in Wash-
ington and Somerset counties.
When he quit the contracting busi-
ness he engaged in the ice business in
Bellefonte, but the past year or two
had not been actively engaged in any
special work. Born and raised a Dem-
ocrat Mr. Taylor switched his polit-
ical allegiance some twenty years ago
to the Republican party and in 1908
was a candidate for the Legislature
against the late J. Calvin Meyer, but
was defeated by 298 votes. This was
his only try for a political office.
As a young man he married Miss
Maude Cunningham who passed away
about fifteen years ago but surviving
him are four children, Robert, of
State College; Misses Anna, Eleanor
and Elizabeth, all of New York. He
also leaves his mother, who of late
has made her home with her
daughter in Detroit, Mich., and the
following brothers and sisters: Col.
H. S. Taylor, of Bellefonte; Mrs. R.
S. Burns and Miss Lillian, of Detroit,
Mich.; Mrs. W. D. Zerby and sheriff
E. R. Taylor, of Bellefonte; Col.
James G. Taylor, of Pittsburgh; W. E.
Gladstone Taylor, of Taylorstown,
Pa.; Joseph, of Pittsburgh, and Mrs.
Warren Else, of Wilmington, Del.
Rev. William C. Thompson, of the
Presbyterian church, will have charge
of the funeral services which will be
held at his late home on north Spring
street, at two o'clock this (Friday)
‘afternoon, burial to be made in the
Union cemetery.

LUTZ.—Mrs., Sarah Helen Lutz,
wife of Benjamin Franklin Lutz, died
at her home at Zion at 8:30 o’clock on
Tuesday evening, as the result of
heart trouble, with which she had suf-
fered for almost two years.
She was a daughter of Samuel and
Amelia Emerick and was born in
Walker township, at her death being
52 years, 4 months and 4 days old.

vived by the following children: Vic-
tor Lutz, of Bellefonte; Mrs. Elsie
Stover, of Mifflinburg; Mrs. Dora

RALSTON.—Mrs. Sophia D. Rals-
ton, widow of Alfred Ralston, died at
the Methodist home for the aged, in
Tyrone, last Thursday night. Some
six weeks ago she suffered a nervous
shock when the building in which she
was then living in Tyrone burned
down and she had to be carried out.
She was then taken to the home for
the aged.
Deceased was a daughter of George
and Elizabeth Hutchinson and was
born at Mooresville, Huntingdon coun-
ty, on March 18th, 1839, hence was in
her eighty-seventh year. In their

WIAN.—The very sudden death of
Longer H. Wian, at his home on east
High street, about two o’clock last’
Saturday afternoon, was a distinct
shock to his many friends. He had
been down town in the morning and
so far as known made no complaint of
feeling ill. He ate a hearty dinner
and shortly before two o’clock suffer-
ed a stroke of apoplexy. A second
and third stroke followed in quick suc-
cession and he passed away before a
physician could reach the house.
Longer Horton Wian was a son of
Peter and Elizabeth Hile Wian and
was born in Spring township on July
24th, 1860, making his age 65 years,
3 months and 20 days. A good part
of his boyhood life was spent in the
vicinity of Pleasant Gap, where he
was well and favorably known. When
but twenty years of age he began
farming on the Gen. Beaver farm,
southeast of Bellefonte, where he
spent nineteen years. He retired
from the farm in 1900 to become
agent of the Bellefonte plant of the
Atlantic Refining company, a position
he filled for twenty-five years, being
retired from service on the last day of
August of this year. Following his
retirement he spent a month in visit-
ing friends and taking life easy then
went to work as a caretaker at the
State Highway garage, on Wilson
street, a position he held at the time
of his death.
Mr. Wian was a member of the
Bellefonte lodge of Elks, the Hepta-
sophs, United Woodmen, Knights of
the Golden Eagle, Bellefonte Lodge of
Moose and probably other organiza-
tions. He was a good, dependable cit- |
izen and had many friends throughout
the county. .
He married Miss Florence A. Mil-
ler, who survives with four daughters,
Mrs. Ward Showers, of Pleasant Gap;
Kathryn, Edna and Martha, at home.
He also leaves one brother and five ,
sisters, namely: George Wian,
McKeesport; Mrs. Anna Derr, of Har-
risburg; Mrs. William Gehret and
Mrs. James McCulley, of Bellefonte;
Mrs. Roy Brunner, of Johnstown, and
Mrs. Cyrus Labe, of Altoona.
Funeral services were held at his
late home at ten o’clock on Tuesday
morning by Rev. C. L. Arnold, of the
Lutheran church, burial being made in
the Union cemetery.

MARTIN.—Miss Susanna Martin, a
life-long resident of Nittany valley,
passed peacefully away at her home |
at Snydertown, last Friday, following
a few day’s illness as the result of
general infirmities.
She was a daughter of William and
Mary M. Beck Martin, and was born
in Walker township on March 3rd,
1844; hence had reached the advanced
age of 81 years, 8 months and 10
days. She was one of a family of
eleven children and her survivors in-.
clude two sisters, Mrs. Charles F. Ro-
mick, of Nittany, and Mrs. John J.

third generation, as well as many
friends who will cherish her memory,

eran church at Snydertown and was a
faithful member all her life. She was
also a member of the home depart-
ment at St. Mark’s Sunday school.

Thompson, widow of the late Dr.
James A. Thompson, of Martha Fur-
nace, died at Lemont on Tuesday
morning, from the effects of influenza
after she had suffered a general
breakdown in health. - She had been
visiting with Mr. and Mrs. John
Mitchell, her cousins, when taken ill.
Mrs. Thompson was the last of the
family of J. I. and Mary Kyle Thomp-
son and while she was born at “the
Branch” seventy-eight years ago most
of her life was spent in the upper
Bald Eagle valley where the family
was so intimately identified with the
early iron and lumber industries.

Saturday afternoon at 2 o’clock, at her
old home at Martha Furnace and in-
terment will be made in the Port Ma-
tilda cemetery.

Bellefonte High Loses to Huntingdon. High School Red and Blue Contest a
Playing early September football
and lacking, except
spurts, anything that resembled the
B. H. S. fighting spirit, the local boys
were downed by Huntingdon last Sat-
urday by a 20-0 score. A High school
team away from home is playing at a
disadvantage which impairs their ef-
ficiency about one-third. Such is the
opinion of coaches familiar with the
morale of scholastic clubs. But Belle-
fonte, on Saturday, was far worse
than any team of its ability should be.
They lacked fight, the very essence of
a Red and White team. Huntingdon
had it in abundance, and this more
than excellence in any department of
the game carried them to victory.
teams have beaten Huntingdon by
more than twenty points. Harrisburg
Tech did it twice; Lock Haven once,
and Bellefonte turned the trick last
year, defeating them 83-13 on Armis-
tice day. That rankled in the collect- :
ive Huntingdon heart and was a de-
feat to be avenged. The game Satur-
day was their biggest contest of the
year. They had to win, they played
to win, and they did win. Their line
charged with every ounce of power
and their backs struggled forward a
yard or more after being tackled. On
defense they fought their way through
Bellefonte forwards by sheer force
' and when they tackled, the local backs
| were thrown for a loss.
Across the line Bellefonte played a
brand of football such as they never
| played before, and, it is to be hoped,
. will never repeat. The fury of their
i opponents made them do things that
| they knew they should not do. No in-
terference was given to the backs in
{ running the ball, while the line failed
, to hold out the Huntingdon forwards.
{ Huntingdon made 26 downs and Belle-
fonte 5. Among the few bright spots
of the game were the excellent puni-
ing of Bower, several good runs by
: Waite and Bellefonte taking the ball
from Huntingdon on the 2-yard line.
To summarize it might be said that
Huntingdon, at the height of its pow-
er, played the B. H. S. team on its off-
day. The team never ceased to try.
They did the best they could on that
day, but no amount of effort on their
part was sufficient to rouse them out
of the slump.
Another invasion of foreign terri-
tory is scheduled for this Saturday
when the High school team meets
Juniata High on the latter’s grounds.
At the beginning of the season the
Altoona suburbanites were touted as
the real dark horse in local high
school football. To date they have
done nothing that would cause Lock
Haven to fear for its crown, but they
have produced a team that is 100 per
cent. improvement over the elub ‘of
last year. Every team has one good
game in it. There is one day in the
season when it will rise to glorious
heights and outdo itself. For Juni-
ata that day may be Saturday. Belle-
fonte has had its hard-luck game and
it has gone through its off-day. The
boys came out of the Huntingdon
game without injury and have put in
the present week in fundamentals.
Two more games to play and “take
both of them” is the slogan.
Bellefonte Academy Defeated Strong
: Pitt Freshmen.
The Bellefonte Academy moved en
moral support to the football team in
latter that should have had the sup-
port. The Academy literally played
rings around them, scoring three
touchdowns and coming out of the
fray with the long end of a 19-0 score.
Quite a number of Bellefonte people
emy got a raw deal all through, else
the score would have been larger.
The game was played on the cricket
field and from fifteen hundred to two
thousand people were present. The
student body of the Academy went to
Altoona in four Emerick Motor com-
pany busses and half a dozen private
cars. They returned to Bellefonte
about seven o’clock Saturday evening.

——The Penn State football team
furnished the attraction at the dedica-
tion of the University of West Virgin-
ia’s new stadium, at Morgantown, last
Saturday, but they were not a match
for the University eleven, which won
the game by the score o” 14 to 0. This
was State’s last game before the wind-
up tussle with the Pitt Panther, in
inasmuch as Pitt defeated Penn, at
dope for a victory over Pitt is not
very encouraging, but there have

Although there still remain a few
pledges to be collected on the Red and
Blue drive for the athletic fund of the
Bellefonte High school, the contest is
over and another victory chalked up
for the Reds. The result was ex-
tremely gratifying from every point
of view, particularly so because of the
sum realized. When the outstanding
money is collected the grand total will
be about $600. This year the High
school had hoped to omit any such
means of raising money, but found
that it was a most necessary proced-
ure if High school athletics are to be
maintained on their present high
i plane. For several years past the
school has been producing athletic
teams whose excellence was out of
proportion to the size of the school
and town. To equip these teams and
engage opponents worthy of combat
has necessitated considerable expense.
Last spring the school had a relay
team that won six consecutive first
places, including a first at the U. of
P. relays, one at Carnegie Tech and
won the State championship at Penn
State. The football team, although
defeated twice, is one of the best in
Central Pennsylvania.” Such recog-
nition as good teams bring to a town
is considered the best advertising that
a town can receive.
The High school authorities insist
on obtaining the best and most up-to-
date equipment for the football team,
so that each player may be as well
protected from injury as is possible.
Realizing these things and remember-
ing that the receipts for home games
are usually less than the expenses, it
is small wonder that the athletic as-
sociation found itself in debt this sea-
son. To meet its obligations and to
insure the continuation of its present
