Bellefonte Wins from Houtzdale, Lost
It is just possible that the Belle-
fonte High school basket ball team
lost its chance to Win the pennant in
the Mountain league through a case
of stage fright in the first half of the
game with Lewistown, at the Y. M. C.
A. gymnasium, on Tuesday evening.
With several splendid opportunities to
put the ball in the basket in the early
part of the game they failed to do so
and in the first half Lewistown scored
12 points to Bellefonte’s 4. The local
quintette got together in the second
half and scored 14 points to 8 for
Lewistown but it was not enough to
win the game and the locals lost 18 to
20. And this after defeating Houtz-
dale last Saturday night by the score
of 32 to 18.
The Bellefonte team will play their
last game of the season this (Friday)
evening, when they will meet Hunt-
ingdon in the Y. M. C. A. gym at 7.30
o’clock sharp. Up to Tuesday evening
they were tie for first place with
Mount Union. The latter team has
two games yet to play, Philipsburg
tonight and Houtzdale tomorrow
night, and as both games will be
away from home they may lose one
if not both. In any event. Bellefonte
still has hopes of at least tieing Mount
Union for the pennant.
The girls’ basket ball team went to
Renovo lost Friday and lost to the
High school girls of that place by the
score of 20 to 9. But they had a splen-
did trip despite their defeat.

“SKYROCKET” IS SCREEN DEBUT
Peggy Joyce Makes First Film Ap-
What promises to be a regulation
movie story and fashion show cym-
bined will be approximated in the
forthcoming screen debut of Peggy
Hopkins Joyce (Countess Morner) at
the Scenic theatre next Monday and
Tuesday. Adela Rogers St. Johns,
who has tailored Miss Joyce’s first
screen vehicle to an exact fit for the
beautiful star, has laid the locale of
her narrative in an atmosphere of Hol-
lywood society, where clothes, clothes,
clothes, will vie in popular appeal with
an exceedingly sprightly story. Miss
Joyce will, during her interpretation
of the stellar role in “The Skyrocket,”
put on display a collection of gorgeous
gowns embodying the principal cur-
rent tendencies of the stars of the
screen. The cost of the extensive
wardrobe necessary to properly por-
tray the leading role amounts to a
staggering figure. A $60,000 sable
coat flashes its magnificent way into
the story for one brief instant, is
whisked away and is gone. There are
other moments during the action when
a chorus of feminine gasps must ac-
company the scenic splendors worn by
the star. Admission, 10 and 25 cents.
Huge Cast Appears in “Grand Duch-
Six hundred and eighty-seven indi-
viduals appeared before the camera
for Malcolm St. Clair’s latest Para-
mount picture, “The Grand Duchess
and the Waiter.” Of this number,
two were featured players, six were
supporting players, twelve were bit
players, and six hundred and sixey-
seven were used for “atmosphere.”
The two leading roles are superbly
portrayed by Adolphe Menjou and
Florence Vidor, while the supporting
cast includes Lawrence Grant, Andre
de Beranger, Dot Farley, Barbara
Pierce, Bradon Hurst and William
Among the bit players are two
ladies-in-waiting, one millionaire, one
theatre manager, one footman, one
chauffeur, one doorman, one taxi-
driver, one floor-waiter, one house-
maid, and two peasants.
The 667 “extras” include 500 people
for a theatre audience, 100 people for
outside the theatre, six cab drivers, 25
hotel guests, 6 park loungers and 30
persons for the interior of an inn.
“The Grand Duchess and the Wait-
er” was adapted to the screen by
Pierre Collings from the famous
French play by Alfred Savoir. It
deals with the comedy complications
that result when an adventurous
French philanderer masquerades as a
waiter to be near a lovely but snobbish
Duchess, with whom he falls despep-
ately in love. The entire production
has been lavishly mounted, so that
it is as beautiful as it is entertaining.
At the Scenic theatre Wednesday and
Thursday. Matinees daily. 11-1t

“FIFTH AVENUE,” with MARGUERITE de la MOTT and ALLEN FOR-
REST. Taken from Arthur Stringer’s Saturday Evening Post story. Just as
the title would lead one to infer, “Fifth Avenue” is a story of that most fa-
mous thoroughfare in all the world. Everywhere it is synonymous with c¢loth-
ing, jewels, silks and satins. Few realize the suffering of those who make
possible all these fineries for the idle rich. A great story. A wonderful cast.
A sumptuous production. Also, a great two reel comedy, “A BANKRUPT
MONDAY AND TUESDAY, MARCH 15 AND 16
“THE SKY ROCKET,” starring PEGGY HOPKINS JOYCE and OWEN

America’s most beautiful, most facinating and most alluring women. A thrill-
ing story of a girls meteoric rise to stardom, and her welcome swish back to
the arms of her man. Taken in Hollywood, dream city of a million girls. Re-
vealed in all its glitter and glory is a heart-stirring drama of a poor girl's rise
to stardom of her dazzling career, of her pleasure and perils, and of her final
fling into the arms of the man she really loved. Marshall Neilan directed it
and by all means see it. Added attraction on Monday, Pathe News, Aesop's

mission, 10 and 25.

is the present. If you like to let the laughter linger by all means take this one
in. Two reel comedy on Wednesday. Thursday Pathe News and Pathe Review.

take Pleasure in Inviting the People of Centre County
and vicinity to the opening of Bellefonte’s Newest,
The Nittany Shoe Store
Having been associated with the retail shoe business for
over thirty years, I am proud of the fact that quality, cour-
tesy and service was the foundation upon which I built the
greatest asset that man can obtain here—the absolute con-
fidence of the public; and in opening this new store I feel
justified in my efforts to buy at all times better shoes and
still charge no more—newer styles, and still fit the feet.
So, I invite the public to inspect the new store, arrayed
in splendor with the greatest selection of footwear for each
member of the family—a style and size to fit every foot.
