the best pictures made by leading man-
ufacturers, and if you want to see
them all you should be a regular.
Thirty Ships will Start in Class B, All
of Which will Stop in Bellefonte.
Robert F. Hunter, who is in charge
of the arrangements for the handling
of the Class B ships which will take
part in the national air derby from
New York to Spokane, Wash., next
week, - has every preparation well
under way and anticipates no hitch
when the ships arrive here next Mon-
According to latest advices about
thirty ships have been entered in
Class B. These include the lighter
commercial planes with a limited
cruising radius. All of these ships
are required to stop in Bellefonte,
providing their pilots reach here. As
most, if not all, of the pilots have
never flown the course it is possible
some of them may become lost and
obliged to come down before reaching
the Bellefonte field. :
During the past week four or more
ships have set down on the old avia-
tion field because the pilots were un-
able to locate the new landing place.
As a means of avoiding mistakes on
Monday a huge arrow, one hundred
feet long and six feet deep, with a
circle on the end, painted white, has
been placed on the hangar on the old
field, the arrow pointing toward the
new field, and having painted on it
in three foot black figures and
letters “2 M.,” meaning two miles to
new field. The limestone circle on the
old field has also been completely
To a Watchman reporter Mr. Hunt-
er stated that instead of paying out
$500 in prizes Bellefonte will furnish
only two prizes, one of $150 and one
of $100, to the two pilots making the
best time from New York to Belle-
fonte, and also furnish free gas and
oil to all planes needing a supply.
The contract for the gas has been
given to Mr. Smith, of Lock Haven,
who will have an 800 gallon tank
truck on the field with a good supply
of five gallon buckets for quick hand-
ling. There will also be a drum of
Mr. Hunter has appointed all the
necessary committees which in ad-
dition to the general reception com-
mittee will include a public safety
committee, with burgess Hard P.
Harris as chairman. The duty of this
committee will be to see that the field
is kept clear of spectators, for the
double purpose of facilitating the
landing and taking off of the planes
and the safety of the public in gen-
eral. The Burgess will have on his com-
mittee five or more state policemen
and probably a squad of extra police.
The field committee, which will in-
clude the force on the aviation field,
will have charge of refueling and
rendering any service needed to the
ships while they are on the field.
The timing committee will take the
official time of every ship on its ar-
rival and when it leaves, Ships are
only allowed a five minute stay in
Bellefonte, anything over that will he
taken off their flying time.
here will also be a committee com-
posed of representatives of all the
newspapers in Centre county, as well
as some from Blair, Clearfield, Clin-
ton and Lycoming counties.
Ribbon badges will be given each
member of all the committees which
will be recognized by the policemen in
While the public will not be per-
mitted to crowd onto the field there
is plenty of room in fields adjacent
to the landing field to accommodate
everybody who will be there, and will
afford a better general view than if
they were on the field.
Latest advices from the managing
direction of the air derby are that the
ships will be started from New York
at 5:30 o'clock, weather permitting,
and if they get off at that time they
should begin to arrive in Bellefonte
at 7:80.
Robert H. Hunter is in charge of
all matters pertaining to the derby
in Bellefonte and he will appoint as
a general committee on reception the
hundred or more Prominent citizens
who are contributors to the fund. As
this committee is not vet made up it

Governor Fisher Here on Wednesday
Inspecting State Institutions,
Governor Fisher made a record in-
spection trip through Centre county,
on Wednesday. Accompanied by his
| private secretary, Capt. Howard Rig-
by, Arthur C. Townsend, and statis-
tician of the party, and Secretary of
Forests and Waters Charles E. Dor-
worth, the Governor came here from
Lock Haven at one o’clock, spent two
hours at Rockview penitentiary, mo-
tored to State College and inspected
that institution and also listened to
the greetings of the town’s Business
Men’s association, then came to Belle-
fonte for an inspection of the Centre
County hospital, arriving there a few
minutes after five o'clock.
Advance announcement stated that
the Governor would be at the hospital
at 5.30, consequently when he arrived
almost half an hour earlier compara-
tively few people were there to greet
him. But he went right ahead with
his work of inspecting the institution
and by the time he had given the hos-
pital a pretty thorough once over
quite a crowd had gathered there, in-
cluding most of the members of the
board of trustees.
The nearest the Governor came to
expressing himself in connection with
the hospital was when Dr. M. J. Locke
thanked him for approving the appro-
priation granted by the Legislature,
and he replied that he was glad to do

Herbert Auman to Resign as Tax Col-
lector of Bellefonte.
Herbert Auman, tax collector of
Bellefonte borough, has resigned as
collector of the school taxes and has
declared his inteneion of resigning
as collector of all other taxes in Belle-
fonte, although he has two years yet
to serve on his second four years’
term to which he was elected.
Mr. Auman gives as his reason the
difficulty in cleaning up back dupli-
cates and the school code’s require-
ment that old duplicates must be
cleaned up before a new one is turned
over to the collector. Mr. Auman has
been tax collector six years and uncol-
lected taxes as shown by the lost
auditor’s statements are as follows:
County and State........000.0 0 ..$ 5638.72
Borough .......... 00 000 00 19563.33
POOP... ep a sei hai 2848.37
School ..... sevians tres ade i ty . 6487.99
Total... 00 in veel. $34538.41
Of course some of the above has
probably been collected and paid over
since the auditors’ statements have
been published, but the total would
probably be not over twenty-five per
cent of the above. Mr. Auman, of
his old Aupiicates so that whoever
pired term will
The big reason given by Mr.
man for giving up the collection of
the school tax is the fact that he al-
ready has a cash deposit of $3500 in
a New York bank as guarantee to his
bonding company for the collection of
jall taxes and now they demanded an
{ additional deposit if $2500 before is-
suing him a bond. This he considered
{beyond his limit and last week noti-
[fied the school board that he would
| resign as collector,
At a special meeting of the school
i board, on Wednesday evening, Orian
i Kline was elected as collector of the
[ school taxes to fill out the unexpired
term of Mr. Auman.

Two More Prisoners Escape, Recap-
tured and Sentenced.
| Shortly
ofter the noon hour, last
Thursday, two more prisoners made
their escape from the Rockview peni-
tentiary while at work on the big im-
pounding dam in McBride's Gap. The
men were Harry Flory, sent up from

five to ten years for highway robbery,
and Lester Sinclair, sentenced in
Chester county on May 17th, 1927, for
two and a half to five years for the

Patrolman Amend Must
Face Court Trial,
Among the bills of indictment pre-
sented to the grand jury this week
were six growing out of the alleged
assault of Robert Taylor by State
highway patrolman Glen A. Amend,
on the night of July 23rd, on the high-
way near Pleasant Gap. It will be
recalled that the alleged assault took
place when Mr. Tayler was endeavor-
ing to persuade his wife to go home,
and Amend is alleged to have inter.

Taylor swore out a warrant for the

when sheriff E. R. Taylor attempted |
to place him under arrest, it is alleged
that Amend resisted and the sheriff
struck him. The result was the high-
way patrolman had both the sheriff |
and Robert arrested for assault and
two other young men arrested for |
interfering with an officer in the per-
formance of his duty, while sheriff
Taylor retaliated by having Amend
arrested for assault.
After hearing all the testimony in
the various cases the grand jury ig-
nored all the bills with the exception
of the one against patrolman Amend
for assault, in which Robert Taylor is
the prosecutor.

mixed up in anybody's troubles.

The Walier L. Main show did
not draw a record crowd at it’s ex-
hibition in Bellefonte, on Tuesday, as
the big top was not anyways near full
at either the afternoon or evening
show. Possibly the threatening
weather in the morning had its effect
in keeping some people away, but the
management admitted that it is too
late in the season for record crowds.
According to some people who wit-
nessed the show, it was not up to its
standard of excellence. Acts were
cut short and most everybody appear-
ed tired out with the long grind of
the summer season. The show went
to Mount Union from Bellefonte.
