“Belefonte, Pa., December 10, 1926.
The Thanksgiving bazaar held by
the ladies of the Lutheran church was
a success, socially and financially.
Our public schools are all in suc-
cessful operation and we are glad to
report that the entire new teaching
force is meeting with the approval of
pupils and patrons. As a former
pedagogue I notice ‘with regret that
one of the features of the old-time
public school which seems rather ne-
glected now is that of elocution-speak-
ing and reciting. Elocution is the
public expression of thought and feel-
ing. It makes for better conversation,
reading, acting, ete. It is a wonderful
study to fit both boys and girls to
measure up to the standards of future
success, and should be made a part of
every school curriculum.
It occurs to me that the young and
rising generation are growing entire-
ly too smart for their wearing apparel.
Boys become men at a much earlier
age than they did years ago. In the
older time a young man was not con-
sidered old enough tc leave home, go
into business or go with the girls until
he was twenty-one years of age. To-
day the youngsters do all these
things and swear like a trooper while
in their teens. The smartness which
characterizes so many’ boys nowadays
is largely the result of home training.
Boys of sixteen talk politics as glibly
as their grand-fathers did at twenty-
one, and bet on most anything with
the assurance of an Adams or Jeffer-
son of the old school.
A delightful birthday party for
their daughter Grace was given by Mr.
and Mrs. Frank Millward recently, it
being her 15th anniversary. The
guests included Dorothy Stytzer, Mary
Shuey, Mame Griffith, Margaret Irvin,
Margaret Evey, Lila Evey, Geraldine
Deitrick, Kathryn Sampsell and Mar-
garet Peters, of Pleasant Gap; Ruth
Teaman, Sarah Miller, Margaret
Smith, Elinor Yarnell, Miss Buck and
Miss Neely, of Bellefonte; Eugene,
Charles, Mack Mothersbaugh and John
Shuey, of Boalsburg; Franklin Hoy,
John Barnes Jr., Carl Gettig, Samuel
Rumberger, Randall Keller, Charles
Houser, Eugene Markle, Carl Zettle,
Joe Sunday and Gerald Millward, of
Pleasant Gap. The evening was
spent in playing games and other
diversions, including delicious refresh-
ments. Miss Grace received many
beautiful gifts and the well wishes of
all her young friends.
U. S. Doctors Give Free Aid Worth
It has been estimated, says “The
Medical Quarterly,” that the members
of the staffs of 107 of the 140 hos-
pitals and dispensaries in New York
City last year gave away, without any
eompensation, 5,020,502 free hospital
days, valued at $15,061,506. The cam-
paign director of the endowment fund
for the Home for Aged Physicians
pertinently asks this question:
“With this situation well in mind.
ean there be any question as to why
so many physicians eke out meager
existences and that many—the major-
ity—die without estate, and that many
become public charges because of fi-
Free medical service to persons
capable of paying is at least part of
the answer. The story of Dr. Oliver
Goldsmith, England’s medical bard, is
indicative that the profession has eve:
been prone to extend charity. A wo-
man with five children at her heels ac-
eosted him fer aid. He took her to
his lodging, gave her money and all
his blankets. She went away and he
went to bed. The air became chilly
and Goldsmith shivered on his blank-
How like many of our present-day
medical men, continues “The Quarter-
ly.” They do much needed charity
work, for which they receive their re-
ward in Heaven, but to the unworthy
they are giving away the money and
blankets that belong tc the member:
of their families, and they are figura-
tively reclining on the bare mattress.
It is estimated that the physicians
of this country are giving away, with-
out the slightest hope of further com-
pensation, free service to the value
Leviathan Depends on 83 Electrical
Systems on her over-seas trips.
Electricity plays an important part
in the operation and lighting of the
huge ocean liners that leave and ar-
rive on schedules almost as fixed as
those of express trains, remarks the
Rennsylvania Public Service Informa-
Most important of all is the light-
ing. The Leviathan, for example, is
a veritable floating palace of light.
Eighteen thousand lamps, ranging in
size from a tiny two-watt bulb on the
switchboard to the 1500-watt lamp in
the electric treatment room are need-
.ed to supply the ship’s need.
Eighty-three electrical systems of
.communieation and signalling are
operated’ on the ship, the telephone
alone requiring 625 extensions. Fire
alarms operate on three separate sys-
tems. There are also 46 fire-alarm
On the bridge are 60 lamps set in
panels to show when doors of the
water-tight compartments are open or
closed. In the engine room among the
46 boilers are other systems of electric
machinery inspection and lubrication.
A total of 50,000 kilowatt hours is
consumed in lighting alone for one
vound trip of this great ship.

CARRARA MARBLE TO MARK
Washington.—White Carrara mar-
ble is reported chosen for the perman-
ent crosses to mark the graves of
American soldiers in France.
“Civilizations stretching back to the
centuries before the birth of Christ
used this marble,” says a bulletin of
the National Geographic society from
its headquarters in Washington, D.
C. “Carrara marble served to honor
pagan gods before the Christian De-
ity. As the deeds of American legions
will be ‘written’ in Carrara, so were
the deeds of Rome’s legions.
“It is rare that a geographical de-
scription can be used 2,000 years after
it was written, but here is one of the
Carrara that stands the test:
“ ¢Of these Luna is a city and har-
bor; it is named by the Greeks the
harbor and city of Selene (modern
Marina di Carrara, port of Carrara).
The city is not large, but the harbor
is very fine and spacious, containing
in itself numerous harbors, all of
them deep near the shore; it is, in
fact, an arsenal worthy of a nation
holding dominion for a long time over
so vast a sea. The harbor is sur-
rounded by lofty mountains, from
whence you may view the sea and Sar-
dinia and a great part of the coast on
either side. Here are quarries of
marble, both white and marked with
green, so numerous and large as to
furnish tablets and columns of one
block; and most of the material for
the fine works, both in Rome and
other cities, is furnished from here.
The transport of the marble is easy,
as the quarries lie near the sea.’
“That was written by Strabo, Greek
historian, a few years before the birth
“Ships will call at the same harbor
to bring away the white marble
crosses for the American graves in
France. The marble will come down
from the lavender-tinted Carrara
mountains, scalloped against a blue
Italian sky, via the leveled course of
the Strada Ferrata. It will be cut
out of quarries (there are more than
600 in the district) that probabiy
served the Romans and the Medici
and the Venetians before America was
discovered. Indeed, the method of
cutting marble in the quarries is sup-
posed to have originated with Leo-
nardo da Vinci.
“Little needs to be added to Strabo’s
description. The visitor first sees the
great mounds of marble chips as dust-
like whitewash smears on the sides of
the steep ravines. The three ravines
holding most of the quarries are trib-
utary to Carrara, a city of 25,000
quarrymen’s wives and children, and
crippled quarrymen. Carrara is dusty
with dust of precious marble. It hums
to the tune of 75 marble-cutting fac-
tories. The noise of chip, chip, chip
is ever in the air. In Carrara even
the poorest houses have chaste white-
marble lintels and steps. The marble
railways take passengers free up the
ravines where great white gashes
memorialize marble even as marble
statues later memorialize men. Some-
where a whistle blows. A pause.
Then a dull explosion. Great blocks
are swung out by booms to waiting
wooden skids for a ride down the rail-
road, and down to the sea.
“Carrara came near being the site
of an enormous carving similar in con-
cept to the Stone Mountain memorial
in Georgia, which will carry the fig-
ures of Lee, Jackson, and other south-
ned a gigantic statue overlooking the
sea, to be carved out of the Carrara
marble mountains was Michelangelo.
He may have had his inspiration from
the plan of Dinocrates to fashion Mt.
Athos into a gigantic figure of Alex-
ander looking out over the Aegean
sea. Neither plan was carried out.
“Michelangelo’s ‘David’ at Florence,
as well as his ‘Moses’ and his ‘Day
and Night, Evening and Dawn,’ are
all of Carrara marble selected ‘on lo-
cation,’ as it were. Canova’s statue
of Napoleon I was carved out of a
block of flawless Carrara as large as
the body of the largest type of mod:
ern motor furniture van.”

A Word With
the Old Folks
ElderlyPeople Are Learning Importance
of Good Elimination.
N the later years of life there is
apt to be a slowing up of the
bodily functions. Good elimination;
however, is just as essential to the
old as to the young. Many old folks
have learned the value of Doan’s
Pills when a stimulant diuretic to
the kidneys is required. Scanty or
burning passages of kidney secre-
tions are often signs of improper kid-
ney function. In most every com-
munity are scores of users and en-
dorsers who acclaim the merit of
Doan’s. Ask your neighbor!
