is the Scenic. The former means not
weather while the latter means good
motion pictures and comfort while
watching them. Every movie fan in
Bellefonte and vicinity knows that
the best pictures can always be seen

always comfortable even in hot weath-

Two Killed Instantly and the Third
Died in Lock Haven Hospital.
“Dead Man’s Curve,” just below the
William Beck property on the Nittany
valley state highway, has three more
victims to its credit. In a motor ac-
cident there at 5:30 o’clock on Satur-
day morning two men were killed in-
stantly and the third victim died sev-
eral hours later in the Lock Haven
hospital. Two of the men in the car
escaped death but both were badly
hurt. *
The dead are Fish A. Kline, an
auto mechanic of Towanda, Pa., whose
head was crushed into an un®ecogniz-
able mass. He was a veteran of the
world war, unmarried but survived by
his parents.
Fred A. Green, a farmer at Liberty
Corners, age 45, who leaves a wife
and one son.
Joseph Mingoes, also a farmer of
Liberty Corners, aged 38, who leaves
a wife and seven small children; his
mother and two sisters.
The injured men were Allen B.
Wooster, owner of the largest gar-
age in Towanda, who sustained sev-
eral fractured ribs and other injuries,
and Ispham J. Cox, owner of a tire
battery station at Towanda. He sus-
tained head injuries and body bruises
but his condition did not prove to be
The five men were on their way to
Altoona for the big auto races. They
left Towanda at 12:35 o’clock on Sat-
urday morning in a big Cadillac se-
dan owped by Mr. Wooster. Mr.
Kline was the driver of the car. Ac-
cording to Mr. Cox most of the men
were asleep when the accident hap-
pened. The tracks of the machine on
the state highway showed that the car
had been veering to the side of the
road for some distance back of the
fatal spot, and the supposition is that
the driver was almost overcome by
fatigue and lack of sleep. The big
car finally struck a stone close to the
sharp curve in the road and this may
have prevented the driver from turn-
ing the steering wheel quick enough.
In any event the car hit a tree to the
left side of the road with such force
that it not only rebounded but again
ninnged ahead into a second tree then
was thrown completely around and
crashed into a third tree on the op-
nosite side of the road, then upset a
mass of ruins. In fact about the only
parts about the car that were not
smashed were the battery and three
tires. ;
The men were all thrown from the
car to the roadway. Mr. Cox was the
first to recover consciousness and he
found both Kline and Green lying
dead in the road. Mr. Wooster was
lying face down in the road in a pool
of .blood -but. he soon regained econ-
sciousness and Mr. Cox helped him to
the side of the road. The last man
found was Mr. Mingoes, who was un-
conscious and a call was sent to Lock
Haven for an-ambulance.and -Mingoes
and Wooster were both taken to the
hospital, the former dying several
hours later without regaining con-

pointed a deputy coroner to investi-

the scene of the accident and inter-

the party still on the ground but after
hearing his story decided that it was
purely an accident and that an ia-
quest was not necesary.

Lack of sufficient thunder is
assigned by many gardeners for the
:seourge of cut worms which are play-
‘ing havoc with many gardens in Belle-

them remained standing, all the others

About 4:30 o’clock on Friday after-
noon Mrs. W. Harrison Walker in-
vited three of her women friends,
Mrs. John G. Love, Mrs. J. Coburn
Rogers and Miss Elizabeth Gephart,
to take a short motor run down the
: Nittany Valley road. Down below the
triangle they saw approaching a
string of six cars and Mrs. Walker
took the right side of the road and
slowed down to less than fifteen miles.
Suddenly the third car swung eut of
line and attempted to pass the two cars
ahead with the result that the Walk-
er car was forced off the road, side-
swiped by the offending car and up-
set. Mrs. Walker was considerably

Between four and five o'clock on
Sunday morning, John Carter, color-
ed, was a passenger from Tyrone for
Bellefonte in a Ford car driven by a
Mr. Snyder. The car crashed into
one of the abutments at the Miles-
burg bridge and Carter sustained a
bad fracture of the right leg below

County hospital undergoing repairs,
and where every effort will be made
to save the leg.
Monday’s Hard Rain Storms Badly
Damaged Penitentiary Gardens.
A large portion of the ground plant-
ed in garden truck at the Rockview
penitentiary was so badly washed by
the series of terrific rain storms, on
Monday, that much of it will have to
be replanted. The first storm of any
consequence occurred about two
o'clock in the afternoon and the down-
pour up at Rockview amounted almost
to a cloudburst. The flat ground
south of the penitentiary buildings,
devoted to gardening, was covered
with a swirling mass of water which
literally swept the place clean of
growing plants or covered them with
a sea of mud.
The rain was accompanied by high
wind and trees were blown down, a
garage moved a foot or more on its
foundation and one house partially
unroofed. In the evening another
severe storm swept over the peniten-
tiary grounds when the downpour of
rain was even more terrific than it
was in the afternoon.
The rainstorms were not general all
over the county, but Bellefonte got
it’s full share of them, though no
especial damage was done here. The
storms were accompanied by hard
thunder and vivid lightning and the
electric service went off several times,
but only for a few minutes at a time.
Shortly after eight o’clock, following
a terrific clap of thunder a
2200 volt wire of the Keystone Pow-
er corporation on the west side of the
Electric Supply cempany building
burst into flames and the fire com-
panies were called out. The fire was
quickly extinguished and electricians
quickly repaired the damaged wire
and turned on the current.
Shortly before twelve o'clock the
firemen were again called out by a
burning box car in the classification
yard oi the Pennsylvania railroad.
The car was loaded with lime and it is
undetermined whether the lime was
too hot when put into the car or
whether it was rain coming in con-
tact with the lime that generated the
heat that started the fire. Only one
car was destroyed. Two others in the
same string caught fire but the five-
men were able to extinguish the
Down along the Jacksonville road
the wind was particularly strong. At
one place eightéen locust trees were
blown over.
Through: the Buffalo’ Run valley the .
hardest hit section was in the vicinity
of Filmore, where a number of apple
trees were uprooted.
In the upper Bald Eagle valley the
only damage, aside from some badly
washed fields, were a few apple trees
blown over just east of Port Matilda.
That a storm like Monday’s was
means something to the Bell Tele-
phone Co. is demonstrated by the fact
that between fifteen and sixteen hun-
dred telephones were put out of com-
mission and all the trouble has not
been located yet. To find it requires
a crew of expert cable men who have
to locate the breaks then open the ca-
bles, find the particular line in trouble,
repair it, close up the cable and start-
on the hunt for the next one.

Electric Company Denies Charge of
A dispatch from Harrisburg says
the Boalsburg Electric company has
denied . charges of: violation of the
rmal electric regulations in an an-
swer to the eomplaint of A. H. Walk-
er, of that Centre county eommunity,
before ‘the Public Service Commission,
and Mr. Walker has been asked by .
the commission whether he desires
to go through with the proceeding.
The complaint raised the rural elee-
tric regulation question which is now
involved in Appellate court litigation.
The course of the case is being watch-
ed with much interest.
Above sixty per cent. of the stock
of the Boalsburg company is owned
by Col. Theodore Davis Boal, which
gives him the controlling interest.
The company gets its service from
the Keystone Power corporation and
supplies electricity for light and pow-
er to residents of Harris township.

Other Interesting Happenings of Com-
mencement Week.
All records for graduations in any
"one year at the Pennsylvania State
College were broken with the 66th
annual June commencement on Tues-
day. A total of 527 bachelor degrees,
1 27 advanced degrees and 13 certifi-
‘cates were granted at that time. In-
cluding the degrees awarded at con-
vocations last August and in Febru-
ary, a record total of 630 diploma |
, awards for a college year was estab-
lished. ! : .
The commencement program open-
ed on Friday of last week and closed
| Tuesday with the commencement ex-
ercises addressed by Dean Raymond
Walters, of Swarthmore College.
More than 1000 visitors, mostly
alumni and parents of members of the
' graduating class, attended the cele-
, bration. The baccalaurate sermon on
; Sunday was delivered by the Rev. Dr.
Maitland Alexander, of Pittsburgh.
Alumni activities featured the days
preceding the commencement. Dele-
gates from alumni clubs throughout
the east attended a special alumni
| council meeting and proposed plans
for the future development of the
alumni association and cooperation
with the college. There were many
' class reunions and special stunts by
alumni groups. Upwards of 100 dele-
gates from agricultural and industrial
societies gathered Saturday to elect
four members of the board of trustees,
all the old members being re-elected.
The alumni also re-elected the three
members of the board to which it is
The graduating class presented the
College with a fund of $3,000 for the
erection of a campus gateway at the
eastern drive as its permanent memo-
Among the first honor men in the
graduating class oppeared the name
of Joseph B. Katz, son of Mr. and
Mrs. W. S. Katz, of Bellefonte, who
graduated in the course of finance
and commerce. Other Centre coun-
tians who took first honors were J. T.
Gramley, of Spring Mills, and J. E.
. Hogan, and Elizabeth Dennis, of State
College. Among the second honor
men were P. F. Bartges, R. M. Bart-
gas, of Coburn; J. M. Brown and E.
C. Rowland, of State College.
It might also be interesting to note
that among the six young women stu-
dents who won their letter from the
women’s athletic association for
prowess in various lines of athletic
sports was Miss Mary Chambers,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William C.
Chambers, of Bellefonte. Miss Cham-
bers is an all around athlete, taking
part in baseball, field and track events.
In her Sophomore year she alone
scored more points than wer
n were made by
the members of the Junior and Senior
classes. She was the record javelin
thrower in all contests. To win the
letter a contestant must score 125
points during her college course and
Miss Chambers was one of the six!
young women to do so. :
_ Coincident with the closing of the
college year on Tuesday an inrush of
about four hundred boys and girls fol-
lowed on Wednesday for the seventh
annual young farmers’ week, which
will continue until tomorrow. Stock

spection trips will feature the week.
College authorities announce that
five representatives of the Ontario
Department of Agriculture are spend-

Faxon Family Reunion.
| For the first time in twenty-two
years Mr. and Mrs. M. T. Faxon, of
| Milesburg, but for years residents of
Bellefonte, spent a day surrounded by
all their children. The family reunion
was held en Sunday at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. J. Warren Wood, and
proved a most pleasant gathering.

Mrs. Faxon were Mrs. H. C. Anderson
and Mr. and Mrs. D. F. Audsley, of
Georgia; Mrs. J. Victor Royer and
daughter, of Altoona; Mr. and Mrs. E.
S. Bullock, Major and Mrs. C. E.
