Last Friday evening residents
~of east High street were considerably
alarmed over the appearance in that
Hocality of four men, who they de-
. scribed as roughly dressed and strang-
~«grs, and they appealed to the police
and sheriff Taylor for protection. The
men had been seen two nights in suc-
cession, along about eleven o’clock,
and while they had made no hostile
mmoves their presence in that locality
was deemed a menace by the resi-
dents. Consequently chief of police
Dukeman, sheriff Taylor and “Chuck”
. Shuey went out along the cemetery
* to investigate. They had no trouble
‘rounding up the quartette of young
- ymen, who were almost at the limit of
“ ttheir patience. They were all from
"Hetla, and the brother of one of them
" “has-a lady friend on east High street
«on whom he was calling. The five
young men came to town together in
a car and naturally four of them had
to wait until the fortunate young man
said good night to the fair damsel on
east” High street, and this accounted
for their loitering in that neighbor-
‘hood so late at night. It is needless

Bad Boys Desecrate Graves in Union
Visitors to the Union cemetery, last
Saturday morning, were astounded at
the discovery that several of the stone
markers at graves along the avenue
leading out to the new part of the
cemetery had been overturned and a
numbar of graves otherwise desecrat-
ed. At first it was thought to have
been the work of an intoxicated auto-
mobile driver but an investigation
disclosed the fact that such was not
the case and that it was evidently the
work of bad boys. In fact, the au-
thorities have a well grounded sus-
picion as to the identity of the mis-
creants and just as soon as sufficient
evidence can be obtained the boys will
be arrested and punished. :
Bellefonte has a number of crim-
inally mischievous boys, boys of good
families, who persistently indulge in
the habit of trespassing on other peo-
ple’s property, destroying and steal-
ing flowers and garden truck. Some
of these boys are known and unless
their practice is stopped it is only a
question of time until ‘they will find
themselves in the clutches of the law.

Mrs. Lloyd White Injured in Auto!
Mrs. Lloyd White, of Spring town-
ship, was painfully injured, on Sat-
urday evening, in an auto accident
out near the Triangle filling station
beyond the old aviation field. The
Whites live on the road leading to the
new airmail field and on Saturday
evening Mr. and Mrs. White and
children were motoring in to Belle-
fonte. As they came out onto the
main Nittany valley highway their
car was hit by a car from Newberry,
containing five men, who were on
their way home from the auto races,
at Tipton. It is said that the White
car had already crossed the road and
was on the right side headed toward
Bellefonte when hit, and that the
Newberry car was on the wrong side
{of the road.
Mrs. White was thrown from the
car and painfully cut and bruised,
though it is not believed seriously.
She was holding a two year old child
in her lap and it escaped without a
scratch. None of the other occupants
of the car were injured., Both ma-
chines were considerably damaged.

This would probably
shorten the road to the College about
a mile and would also get rid of the
dangerous curves this ‘side of Lemont
as well as the short turn in that town.
But Lemont people protest that the
building of the proposed cutoff would
naturally take the bulk of the traf-
fic that way and would be det-
rimental to the business interests of
| the town. As a matter of protest
they are now circulating a petition
. for signers which in due time will be

partment setting forth their right in

the Seven mountains has been com-
pleted and that road is now open to

Out on the highway between Snow
Shoe and Kylertown, Clearfield coun-
ty, the road is now completed from
Snow Shoe to the bridge over Mo-
shannon creek, while work is in pro-
gress from the creek to Kylertown.
It will be two months or longer be-
fore it is completed, but in the mean-
time traffic is open over the old road-
way, as the new highway is being con-
structed over a different route.
Swiniming Pool and Tennis Courts on
Hughes Field.
‘The mammoth swimming pool has
been the scene of much pleasure and
enjoyment for several weeks. There
is an influx of water daily which
makes the water in the pool all that
can be desired. Tickets can be pur-
chased of the caretaker at the pool
that will provide six: baths for $1.00.
Many of thése tickets are sold every
season. © :
The five tennis courts on the ath-
letie field are in fine condition and are
open to the public. A season ticket
can be purchased of William Waite
for $3.00. Those not purchasing tick-
ets will be permitted to play by pay-
ing ten cents a set. Regular holders
taking friends must pay ten cents a
set for their guests. These courts
will be kept rolled and marked by the
caretaker. Entrance to the courts
will ‘be ‘at the gate next to the west
end of the bath house.
The regulations regarding the use
of the courts will soon be posted. Mr.
Hughes gives warning that those de-
siring to bathe in the pool must pay
the price of twenty-five cents for a
morning, or an afternoon or an even-
ing swim.
Additional Appointments Made by
Governor Fisher.
During the past week Governor Fish-
er has made many more appointments
but so far has confined himself to the
boards of various State and semi-
State institutions. In fact, so far he

in trimming out the undesirables in
the: great army of State employees.

for the Laurelton State Village the
name of Mrs, Robert Mills Beach, of
Bellefonte, a member of the old board,
