Punches Driver in Face but Fails to
Make a Getaway.
An escaped convict from the Hunt-
inzdon reformatory created cousider-
able excitement in Centre county, on
Sunday, before he was finally captur-
ed and landed in the Centre county
jail. During the afternoon motorists
driving from Centre Hail to Potters
Mills were attracted by a young man
lying alongside the road near Old
Fort. Most of them kelieved him in-
toxicated and passed on, but quite a
number stopped and endeavored to
ascertain if he were sick but could get
but little satisfaction out of him.
Along about six o'clock a motor
party stopped and the men in the car
found the young man apparently un-
conscious and Dr. Morrow was sum-
moned from Centre Hall. In the mean-
time quite a crowd had gathered and
the doctor made a test that quickly
brought the young man to action and
the physician declared that he was all
right physically but might be hungry.
On being questioned as to where he
was going he stated that he wanted to
go to Philadelphia.
As it happened among the crowd
who had stopped was a man who gave
his name as Fred Coleman, a news-
paper man, who was on his way home
to Williamsport from a trip to Lewis-
town, and he volunteered to take the
wayfarer along to that place. The
man crawled into the car and Mr. Cole-
man drove over Nittany mountain and
down the back road to Zion. Near
that place the stranger asked Coleman
to stop a minute as he wanted to get
out, and when he got back into the car
Coleman recalls that he had something
in his hand but paid no attention to
what it was.
After they passed Hublersburg, just
opposite the L. H. Swartz farm, he
again asked the driver to stop, saying
he believed he would go back to Hub-
lershurg, get something to eat and
spend -the night. Coleman stopped the
car and the young man fussed with the
door and finally turned to Coleman to
open it. As the latter leaned over to
do so the stranger struck him a hard
blow in the face, at the same’ time
ordering him to get out of the car.
Somewhat dazed Coleman obeyed
when the young man attempted to
start the car and drive away.
When Coleman realized that the
man was going to make off with his
car he jumped on the running ‘board
and grabbed the stranger. The car
was already in motion and’in the
struggle it ran through the fence and
down into a swamp in the field. The
young man beat it across the field.
Coleman went to the Swartz home
and telephoned sheriff Taylor of the
attempted theft of his car and the
news quickly spread through Nittany
valley, with the result that John Zel-
lers, of Hecla; Earl Vonada; of Hub-
lersburg, and Elmer Weaver, of near
Bellefonte, started down the Nittany
valley road in a car. About a mile
below Hublersburg.they. overtook the
young man walking on the road and
stopping asked if he wanted a lift. He
promptly accepted, at the time re-
marking that the soles of his shoes
were a little thin and his feet pretty
tired. The three men told him they’d
soon fix that by geing back home and
getting him another pair of shoes.
Turning around they drove back and
reached the place of the holdup just as
the sheriff arrived on the scene, it
being then about eight o’clock.
Th sheriff brought the stranger to
Bellefonte and placed him in jail. On
Monday morning when interrogated
by the sheriff he gave his name as Joe
Cooper and his home Harrisburg. But
on being searched papers were found
or: him indicating that he had been in
the Huntingdon reformatory. Officials
of that institution were communicated
with and they identified the yitng
man as Mike Mansky, who escaped
from the reformatory on Saturday |
morning. He had evidently made his
way to Lewistown then crossed the
Seven mountains to Pennsvalley,
where he first came into the limelight
in Centre county. Mansky is seven-
teen years old and, according to re-
port, was sent to the reformatory irom
Philadelphia after having been con-
victed of manslaughter. On establish-
ing beyond doubt the identification of
the young man sheriff Taylor took him
back to the reformatory on Monday.
Keep Your Eye Open for the Dog
One of the provisions of the present
dog Jaw is that owners must not per-
mit them to run around loose and de-
stroy or damage gardens and flower
beds. Dogs must always be kept at
home or in leash while out. Dog li-
censes are also necessary.
Just at present there are a large
number of dogs running at large in
Bellefonte. Some of them wear tags
and others don’t. State College has
been infested with a lot of stray dogs
and a professional dog catcher is now
in the town gathering up the stray
canines. We have it on good author-
ity that when he completes his work
there he will come to Bellefonte and
make a cleanup here. Therefore, if you
have a dog that is not licensed better
get a tag at once, or if your pup is
permitted to roam at large, keep him
at home or have him in leash when
on the street.

Poor Seed Corn. .
- The seed corn situation in Centre
county is very bad. A number of men
have tested their seed grown last year
and found it germinated anywhere
from 10 to:80%. Reports have been
received from: other counties which
show that similar conditions exist in
other sections of the State.
A test just completed by R. C.
Blaney, county agent, on a sample of
1926 corn, shows a germination of
35.8%. Several cribs ef 1925 corn
have been located and samples from
these cribs are on test. The results
made on cribs so far show they are all
right for planting, however, the Agri-
cultural Extension Association wishes
to issue the following warning: “Test
all seed corn before planting. If the
sample tests over 90% it is safe to
plant, but if not, either test every ear
or secure seed from a source that you
are sure-will grow.”
A list of names of men who have
seed corn that has been tested and
found safe to plant will be published
next week.

Annual Meeting - of County Wool
Grower’s Association.
The annual meeting of the Centre
county Wool Grower’s association was
held in the court house last Friday
afternoon. President R. P. Compbell,
of Penn's Cave, presided and a favor-
able report of the 1926 pool was made
by W. C. Smeltzer, secretary and
treasurer. He stated that the wool
sold through the 1926 pool was in bet-
ter condition than in any )revious
year, there being only five per cent.
rejections compared to twenty per
cent. in 1925.
A summary of the lamb feeding
club was given by W. B. Connell, sheep
extension specialist of State College.
He stated that all of the ten members
exhibited their lambs at the State farm
products show, at Harrisburg, in Janu-
ary, and members of the association
were in favor of supporting another
club this year.
P. C. McKenzie, of State Coliege,
gave a talk on sheep management,
after which the association re-elected
R. P. Campbell president, and W. C.
Smeltzer secretary and treasurer.

Centre County Hospital Renders Ef-
ficient Service at Small Cost. |
The business management of the
Centre County hospital has just made
public a most interesting report of
the activities of the hospital for the
month of February. A total of sev-
enty six patients received treatment
during the month, and forty seven
were released from the hospital entire-
ly sound, or well on the way to re-
covery. The new cases numbered
thirty three, and in fact the reports
for several years past show that con-
siderably more than an average of one
citizen of Centre county every day
finds it necessary to partake of the
advantages of this splendid little in-
stitution, where he is assured that his
malady will be given the most care-
ful surveilance and masterly treat-
ment until he regains his normal
health. At this rate of turnover, it
is easy to see, that in the course of
ten years the hospital will reach in its
beneficent service a portion of our
population equivalent to the people
living in a borough the size of Belle-
fonte or State College, and sooner or
later, will touch directly or indirectly
practically every home in the section
of county to which it administers. No
individual ean know when this insti-
tution will be the chief agency in sav-
ing his own life or the life of one of
his loved ones. These actual contacts
dispensed in such an efficiznt manner,
are swiftly building up a large circle
of admirers who will bend every ef-
fort to aid the good people who are
back of the movement when they thus |
learn, first hand, about its spelndid |
equipment and ability to serve the!
The report for February shows that
out of the large number treated dur-
ing the month, there were only five
deaths, which is a remarkably low
mortality for a hospital; and one is
led to wonder how many more of the
seventy six patients would have suc-
cumbed if they had not gone to the
hospital. There are many ardent
home lovers who will not go to a hos-
pital until every facility for a cure at
home has been exhausted, and it is
then often too late for the hospital to
effect a cure. The constant, unremit-
ting attention of trained nurses and
skilled physicians together with ab-
solutely sanitary surroundirigs and a
studied dietary, usually enhances the
prospects of recovery in the hospital
rather than in the home.
Another feature worthy of special
mention in this report is the nominal
expense for such efficient treatment.
The average cost for a private room in
a large hospital is from six to ten dol-
lars per day, but we are shown in this
report that the total cost for each pa-
tient was only $3.66 per day. It must
be remembered that this cost covers
the laundry, food, heat, care of nurse,
necessary medication and many other
expenses. Room and board in the
average hotel would probably cost at
least $4.50 per day; but here we have
the services of an efficient group of
nurses, operating room “expense, lab-
oratory fees, for eighty .four cents
less than you would have to pay for
food and lodging in a commercially
operated hotel. The explanation is,
of course, that the hospital is not con-
ducted for a profit, but for the con- |
venience and welfare of the unfor-
tunate sick, and all the management
wants in the way of remuneration is
enough to actually pay expenses, and
to imerease the facilities of the hos-
pital from time to time for better ser-
vice. ’
The report shows that the receipts
do not cover the expenses by quite a
figure. The seventy six patients
spent. a total of 872 days in the hos-
pital, or an average of eleven days
each, and they paid for this service
a total of $2258.85. But the total ex-
pense of caring for them amounted to
$3,200.00, making a net loss to the
hospital of $958.85 or an average of
$12.63 per patient. In other words it
cost. an average of $3.66 to care fer
each patient per day and he paid for
this service only $2.59 with a loss to
the management of $1.09 on each pa-
tient every day he spent at the hos-
pital. It is understood that this is a
common experience in the manage-
ment of hospitals of this character,
and were it not for the financial as-
sistance given by the State and the 1ib-
erality of some ef our public mind-
ed citizens the institution could not
centinue its service.
A fact often averlooked by the
casual observer is that a hospital is
a school of vital importance to the!
community in general. A patient who
spends a peried of time under the
care of trained nurses and scientific
physicians, ever afterwards has a bet-
ter knowledge of health measures of
various kinds than he had before.
This knowledge is gradually becoming
general information and increases the
health of the people. Our hospital is
also a training school for nurses.
Eighteen wide awake and energetic
young ladies are in constant attend-
ance at this school, learning the art
of sanitation by becoming acquainted
with the bacteriologocal origin of sup-
perition, erysipelas, and septicaemia,
with their practical applications in
the details of antiseptic and aseptic
surgery, and obstetrics. They also
learn the technique and utility of
dietetics and practical nursing. Upon
graduation from this school these
young ladies go out into the commun-
ity well equipped to continue the art
of nursing or to establish homes of
their own where the practical knowl-
edge thus acquired is of the utmost
importance in rearing children and
caing for the household. : ARK

How the Telephone Service Has Been
A total of about $23,800 has been
and is being spent by the Bell Tele-
phone company of Pennsylvania in re-
building the old Penn State Telephone
company’s lines, which were taken ov-
er by the Bell not long ago. Other
parts of the total have gone into the
building of additional toll lines and
into the expanding of the telephone
plant in Bellefonte.
Five miles of line have been rebuilt
from Bellefonte to Zion at a cost of
about $1,500; 16 miles have been re-
built between Bellefonte and Snow
Shoz at a cost of $3,000; rebuilding of
five miles from Snow Shoe to Moshan-
non and of seven miles from Moshan-
non to Karthaus cost $1,700.
In Bellefonte proper, the following
aerial cable has been added to the
telephone plant at a cost of about $2,-
000: 960 feet in Decatur alley; over
800 feet on east Logan street; 1,200
feet on south Spring street; 800 feet
on High street to Thomas; about 2,-
000 feet from Bellefonte to Coleville;
1,200 feet on east Bishop street; 1,000
feet from Bellefonte to Milesburg.
These additions, Mr. Richards says,
will care for the growth which is mak-
ing itself shown at the present time,
and provide the needed facilities for
future development.
Three multi-party lines from Belle-
fonte to Nigh Bank have been rebuilt
at a cost of $1,500. These will give
telephone users in that vicinity more
facilities for telephone service. One
of the most expensive jobs of the pro-
gram has just been started, and is a
new toll telephone circuit extending
from Bellefonte through Howard and
Lock Haven to Jersey Shore, which
will cost about $9,700 when it is com-
pleted. This will give residents of
towns and country districts through
which it passes a more direct and
speedier telephone service to out-of-

mately $3000.
The dismantling of the former Penn
State Telephone company equipment
in and around Bellefonte has been go-
ing on sinee October 1st. In some sec-
tions there is still some of the old ca-
ble to be removed, while other sections
have been cared for and only one set
of cables now feed the telephone lines
of subscribers. One of the largest
jobs of dismantling the old plant was
the taking down of the Penn State
line between Bellefonte and State
College, a distance of thirteen miles.
Two construction crews of five men
each were required for this job.
With the activity which has been
going on recently P. I. Young, plant
wire chief at Bellefonte, has kept his
crews of men very busy. The build-
ing of the new circuit from Bellefonte
to Jersey Shore is one of the biggest
jobs under way at present. :
Work "in the State College and
Bellefonte central offices accounts for
nearly $1,400, completing the total
amount of $23,800.
