| manager, who not only attends to the
business end of the hospital, but as
chief executive is very much. in evi-
dence everywhere, co-ordinating the
various departments and rendering
the entire organization a smooth run-
ning piece of machinery. It is sur-
prising how much real effectual ser-
vice is performed by this hustling
business manager in the mere 12 to
15 hours he spends daily in the hos-
pital. There is the buying to be done,
the equipment to look after, repairs
to ‘be made, the accounting to be at-
tended to, reports galore to be com-
piled, bills to collect, letters to be
written, patients to receive and dis-
charge, errands to rum, visitors to
conduct through the hospital, and, if
he has a few minutes to spare, there !
are multitudinous office details which
would ordinarily consume the entire
time of an executive. The manager
makes it his business to get acquaint-
ed with every patient and is deeply
interested in their welfare. « He wisits
their bedside and has many a confi-
dential talk with them when it be-
comes necessary to straighten out
any tangle which seems to be militant
to their recovery. He does this not
by cajolery and flattery but by tak-
ing a real, helpful interest in their
personal affairs whenever they show
al dispowjtion to ‘confide in him. Their
peace #nd+" contentment” of mind has’
much do with their recovery.
Many interesting cases of this kind
i are fresh in the memory of the board
and medical staff in which some
nervous and irritable patients were
pacified and later became enthusiastic
admirers of the methods and services
of the hospital.
There are people of the hospital
force whom you will meet when you
visit this growing, little institution
on May 12th—people who are labor-
ing in the spirit of Florence Nightin-
gale. It would be difficult to find an
institution where there is more har-
mony and co-operation, as all are
laboring to the one end that the hos-
pital may be made the best of its kind
in the whole country. Indeed, it is an
institution you will be glad to see,
and having seen it at close range, to
help its splendid work along by pay-
ing a dollar to become a member of
the Hospital Corporation. The mem-
bership drive to enroll every man,
woman, and child in the county will" be

County Authorities Hunting Parents
of Buried Infant.
County authorities delved into the
mysteries of the ‘Advent cemetery, on
‘Monday, disinterred the body of a
girl baby and will now endeavor to
unravel the secret of the parentage
of the child. According to reports
the babe was buried there on Novem-
ber 1st, 1926, by a lone young man,
apparently about twenty-one years of
age. The only witness to the solitary
funeral was R. F. Borgen, of Snow
Shoe, who happened along when the
young man was making the burial.
He spoke to the man but he was quite
reticent, merely stating that his home
was in Pennsvalley. i
Mr. Borgen gave no consideration
to the matter at the time and nothing
further would have happened had not
residents in that locality been at-
tracted by buzzards hovering over the
spot in the cemetery. The matter
was reported to" the authorities and
district attorney John G. Love decid-
ed to investigate. On digging down
the little homemade coffin was found
sixteen inches under the surface. Dr.
W. R. Heaton, coroner, made an ex-
amination of the remains and gave it
as his opinion that the child had died
from natural causes. And now what
the authorities want to find out is the
names of its parents and the cause of
secrecy in connection with its burial.

‘plane of musical life.
| tinue in their noble and worthy work,
The musical program, rendered in
the court house on last Friday even-
ing, by the Bellefonte Community
orchestra and the Kindersymphony
orchestra under the superb leader-
ship of Mrs. Louis Schad, afforded a
rare treat to the large audience of
music lovers assembled. A mere
glance at the faces in that audience
made one realize the real pleasure
that everyone was experiencing, and
the faces of many of the older ones
present seemed to indicate that they
were thinking of the days when so
many hours of delight in the realm of
classical music were enjoyed by them
when the famous Bellefonte orchestra
composed of such musicians as Mrs.
Love, Miss Ohnmacht, Mr. Evan
Blanchard, Doctor Hibler, F. Potts
Green, Col. W. F. Reynolds, and
Bierly brothers and others, entertain-
ed large audiences.
cal genius of those good old days has
returned and is hovering over us
again. :
When the time for the concert to
begin arrived, a peculiar thrill stole
over the large audience as the two
orchestras appeared, forty-eight in
number and took their appointed
places, for there seemed to be wrap-
ped upin those musicians such tre-
mendous_ possibilities for the pleasure
and entertainment of Bellefonté inuste
‘lovers in the days to come. A merit-
ed ovation was given to Mrs, Schad
when she made her appearance. This
ovation and the presentation by the
orchestra of a large basket of exqui-
site pink roses revealed most emphat-
ically the high esteem in which Mrs.
Schad is held by one and all. The
programme was varied and well se-
lected and the successful efforts of the
performers reflected great credit
upon the talent and ability of the
The Community orchestra of 26
members gave a delightful surprise
as they rendered their numbers with
peculiar rendered and expression.
And surely the Kindersymphony of
twenty members made a wonderful
hit as they produced entertaining
music with their toy instruments.
Mrs. Schad explained the origin of
such orchestras in the musical land
of Germany, which added interest to
the occasion. Features of the even-
ing were the cornet solos by Paul
Crust, the soprano solos by Mrs.
Robert Walker, the violin quartet by
by Misses: Pearl Garbrick, Eleanor
Barnhart, Messrs. John Dubbs and
Orvis Harvey and last but not least,
the beautiful solos by Russell Blair.
We love to pay tribute to real tal-
ent and so our hat is off to Dr. and
Mrs. Bible for their talented family
of three daughters who are ever ar-
ranging, most cheerfully and willing-
ly, musical programs for the pleasures
of the public. One day Mrs. Robert
Walker is conducting an impressive -
sacred concert ‘in one church; then
Mrs. Blair follows with a sacred
cantata unexcelled in another church :
and later comes this treat under the
| direction and leadership of Mrs. '
Schad, and so it goes, year after year.
Surely our community cannot be too
grateful to these talented sisters for
their hard pains-taking efforts to
usher the community into a higher
