State’s Oldest Student
Ages of students at the Pennsyl-
vania State College range from 16 to
47 years, according to a recent study
by Registrar William S. Hoffman. The
youngest is a freshman and the old-
est is a sophomore. One senior is
46 years of age, one junior is 40 and
there are three others in the two class-
es who are within one year of 40.
There are twenty students who are but
seventeen years of age.
The age of twenty has been reached
by 678 of the 3300 students covered by
the survey, the largest group of any
one age in the college. There are
more seniors reporting their age as
22 years, and in the junior class the
most popular age appears to be 21.
There are more 20-year old sopho-
mores and among the freshmen 19
years has the most representatives.
The oldest freshman is thirty.

FIREWORKS AT EASTER
Many strange Easter customs are
found in Latin countries. In Florence
it is the custom to extinguish the
lights in all the churches on Good Fri-
day as a symbol of the death of Jesus,
the extinetion of life. That this cus-
tom goes back to some Roman festival
connected with the vestal virgins who
kept careful guard over the sacred
flames at the altars of their divinity
The lights having been extinguish-
ed, all is darkness and gloom until
Easter Sunday. On that day the task
of rekindling the flames is intrusted
to one ancient family, the Pazzi, mem-
bers of which carry flints brought
from the holy land with which they
strike the new spark. Lanterns are
lighted and in this way the lamps are
relighted in all the churches of Flor-
This, however, is not spectacular
enough for the multitude. Therefore
an enormous car is loaded with harm-
less explosives and hauled through the
principal streets of the city. It is
drawn by two milk white oxen es-
pecially bred for this purpose and re-
served for it from year to year.
Finally the great car, looking like
an enormous pagoda, is stopped in the
square in front of the Cathedral of
Florence. The car has been followed,
of course, by an enormous crowd,
which stands around it in the great
square waiting impatiently for the
“Scoppio del Carro” (Explosion of the
Arrived on the square, a wire is led
from the car up to the chief altar of
the cathedral, and when the lamp is
lighted on the altar a “dove,” a travel-
ing pyrotechnical device shaped like
the bird of peace, is released, its fuse
aflame. Swiftly it speeds down the
wire, and as it strikes the car the dove
explodes, setting all the fireworks in
the car afire. Then comes the grand
explosion amid the huzzas of the mul-
titude, and Easter Sunday is ushered
in to all Florence. There is little
doubt that in this ceremony is a re-
minder of the ancient celebrations of

State Makes Inspections to Assure
The third inspection of the 85 flocks
and 23 hatcheries under supervision
of the Pennsylvania Department of
Agriculture has practically been com-
pleted, according to an announcement
issued by the Bureau of Markets.
The purpose of inspection in the Ac-
credited hatchery work is to make
certain that the flocks and hatcheries
.| is now believed by some historical au- | are in a sanitary condition and that
all regulations of the Department are
being complied with to assure chick
buyers a supply of uniform, high
quality baby chicks during the coming
Approximately 50,000 birds have
been inspected by representatives of
the Department since September. Of
this number 38,224 were Certified and
branded with an approved legband.
About three-fourths of the Certified
birds were tested for bacillary white
diarrhea and all birds which gave a
positive reaction to the test have been
The purchase of “Pennsylvania
Certified Chicks” assures the buyers
of a supply of uniform chicks produc-
ed from flocks in which all breeding
birds have been inspected for general
health, type, vigor and production.
Tests for white diarrhea are made in
an effort to reduce losses in baby
chicks. The Pennsylvania Accredit-
ed grade of chicks can be produced
only from flocks that have passed two
successive annual clean tests and are
now available in only small quantities.
Because of the limited supply of
quality baby chicks produced under
State supervision, chick buyers are
urged to make prompt inquiry to the
Bureau of Markets, Pennsylvania De-
partment of Agriculture, for a list of
flocks and hatcheries.

Thawed by Electricity.
Frozen water mains frequently are
thawed out by electricity. In the dead
of winter when all the houses in a
section of the city find they cannot
draw water at any of the faucets, the
water department hears about it and
appeals to the electric light and power
company, which sends out an emer-
gency crew. Electric power connec-
tions are made on hydrants at the two
ends of the frozen section. The heat
generated by the passage of the elec-
tricity through the pipes soon has wa-
ter flowing freely again.
