Immediate Action Needed to Prevent
Seed Corn Shortage.
Centre County farmers who have
not already done so should begin at
once to plan for obtaining seed corn
for planting in 1928, says county
agent, R. C. Blaney. Much of the
corn in the corn belt and northward
is so far behind that it has little
chance to mature sufficiently for seed
before frost. This condition together
with the small hold-over due to poor
maturity of the 1925 and 1926 crops,
brings about a situation which may
well result in a serious seed corn
shortage in 1928 in some sections of
the county if steps are not taken this
fall to prevent it. No time should be
lost in arranging to select an abund-
ance of seed corn from the present
crop. Farmers whose crops for one
reason or another, are so late that
they will not mature to make good.
seed should arrange to select seed
from the field of a more fortunate
All hold-over corn of the 1925 and
1926 crops which is suitable for seed
should be retained for planting in
1928. Old corn is likely to be infested
with insects or to have some damage
by rodents. When such corn is held
for seed, it should be examined, sort-
ed, disinfected if necessary and. pro-
tected from further damage.
The best seed corn is that which has
matured thoroughly upon the plants
in the field. The loss in vigor, how-
ever, which comes from slight im-
maturity at the time the seed is pick-
ed is unimportant compared with the
loss that may result from using seed
of an unadapted variety obtained in
the spring from some distant source.
Seed corn picked about three weeks
after pollination and dried carefully
will germinate. The plants grown
from immature seed will be weak and
unproductive and the selection of seed
so soon after silking and tasseling is
not recommended. The vigor of ger-
mination increases rapidly with ad-
vancing maturity and a good quality
of seed may be obtained from ears
with kernels that are well dented.
Seed corn containing excess mois-
ture must be dried rapidly and handled
carefully until thoroughly dry. Sap-
Py seed corn left in a sack or even in
a pile over night is likely to heat or
mold. The ears should be stored so
that the air can move freely about
them. Then they will dry rapidly
even without artificial heat. The use
of a little artificial heat will promote
rapid drying. The seed also is more
likely to mold or sprout under higher
temperatures so that a good air move-
ment and rapid drying are even more
important when artificial heat is used.
A small heater located below the seed
corn will cause a rapid upward cur-
rent of air which will promote rapid
drying if ventilation permits this air
to pass out of the building at the top.
The possibilities of obtaining better
seed later on should not prevent play-
ing safe by selecting an ample supply
of seed of an adapted variety just as
soon as it is mature enough so that it
can be relied upon to germinate well.
If frost holds off longer and weather
conditions are favorable for develop-
ment a new supply of seed can be se-
lected after the corn is more mature.
Run Over by Clodpacker Woman Not
Seriously Hurt.
Last Thursday Mrs. William Gor-
man, who lives in Ferguson township,
was assisting her husband by
driving a team of horses hitched to a
clodpacker machine over a ploughed
field. In some way the lines became
entangled and the team frightened
and ran away. Mrs. Gorman was
thrown in front of the machine which
passed over her body but it just hap-
pened that one end of it ran up over
a large rock which probably saved
her from being crushed to death. In
fact not a bone in her body was brok-
en but she was badly bruised and suf-
fered from shock.

HERKHEIMER. —Jared Herk-
heimer, son of the late Adam and
Margaret Herkheimer, died at his
home in Salt Lake City, Utah, the fore
part of the week. Very little is
known of “Jerry” since he left Belle-
fonte many years ago, but such mea-
gre information as Bellefonte friends
have indicates that he became quite
successful in the west. He was a
bachelor, 62 years old and died of
pernicious anemia.
His only surviving relatives are his
sisters, Mrs. Emma Shields, of Wil-
liamsport, and Mrs. Elsie Parker, of
U. B. Church Appointment.
Included among the ministerial as-
signments made, on Sunday, at the |
conclusion of the Allegheny confer-
~nce of the United Brethren church
in Johnstown, were Rev. J. I. L. Res-
ler, as pastor of the Bellefonte
church; Rev. E. B. Learish, Philips-
burg, and Rev. Arthur Richey, Port
Matilda. Rev. J. S. Fulton, who has
been conference superintendent for
many years, has been assigned to the
work of the preacher’s pension bu-
reau, and Rev W. S. Wilson was ap-
pointed superintendent.
Rev. J. A. Mills, present pastor of
the Bellefonte church, has been given
a very good assignment in the west-
ern part of the State. It is also re-
ported that the Bellefonte congrega-
tion is not satisfied with the assign-
ment of Rev. Ressler to their church.
While he is a very able man, he is
close to eighty years of age and they
have petitioned the district superin-
tendent for a younger man.

Strike of Employees Cripples Work
at Federal Match Plant.
A number of employees of the
Federal Match Co's. plant in this
place went out on strike Wednesday
and yesterday morning many of the
men and boy operatives joined them
through sympathy.
While all of the employees are not
out enough have quit their places to
seriously interfere with operations at
the plant.
The trouble started with the “up
stairs” girls who refused to take a
cut in wages that would have amount-
ed to approximately seven cents an
hour. Under the old scale they were
making thirty-five and bonuses on
production over a stated number
of boxes per day.
While no cut had been suggested,
as yet, for the “down-stairs” girls and
men many of them quit work yester-
day morning.
——Gilbert S. Burrows, who for a
long term of years has been official
court reporter for Centre county, has
got the Florida bug and is making
preparations to go to that State some-
time during December. He is owner
of a good-sized lot near one of the
thriving towns and has in mind the
installation of a gasoline station and
hot dog stand. He expects to spend
the winter there and may remain in-
——Bellefonte’s curb market has
almost run its course for this year.
Some six or eight cars were lined up
on Wednesday morning but the as-
sortment of fruit and vegetables was
not at all elaborate. Only two market
men had apples and so far not a drop
of cider has made its appearance,
evidence of the small apple crop in
the county.
——-Word has reached Centre coun-
ty of the death by drowning, at
Memphis, Tenn., on September 10th,
of John C. Bower, a son of Fred and
Mattie Bower, of Howard. Mr. Bower
was employed by the government in
its work on the Mississippi river. He
was forty-six years old and leaves a
wife and five children.
Among the marriage licenses
granted at Cumberland, Md., on Wed-
nesday, were those to James Edward
McCool and Mary Ruth Steere, both
of Bellefonte, and Clifford Ira Kor-
man, of Oak Hall and Mary Margaret
Whitehill, of Lemont.
——Owing to the conflict of the
dates set for the Presbyterian and
Episcopalian annual winter bazaars,
the Episcopalians have changed
theirs to Tuesday, December 6th, in-
stead of Thursday, December 8th.
Yesterday marked the end of the
Thursday half holiday in the stores
of Bellefonte for this season.
HIBLER.—Miss Mary Hibler died
Pigskin Season Opened Auspiciously
Last Saturday.
Last Saturday marked the opening
of the football season and the pigskin
chasers in Centre county were among
the fortunate winners. A good sized
crowd of fans went out to Hughes
field to see the initial game between
the Bellefonte Academy and Beckley
College, of Harrisburg, the Academy
winning by the score of 24 to 0.
Owing to the fact that the Academy
has had such a bang-up team during
the past three years, under the coach-
ing of Carl G. Snavely, particular in-
terest was centered in the showing of
the team now being handled by coach
Russell Magee. Saturday’s game
showed that the Academy has plenty
of available material for the building
of a good team. The line is quite
strong and evenly balanced. The
backfield has plenty of ‘beef but no
Hoods. While not at all sluggish the
backs were too slow in getting into
play. They lacked the brilliant dash
which characterized the work of the
backfield last year. However, if the
men develop the necessary pep they
‘will probably prove a strong aggrega-
This (Friday) afternoon, at 3
o'clock, the Bucknell Freshmen will
be the Academy's opponents on
Hughes field. The visitors are re-
ported as having a heavy line and
backfield and special interest centres
in this game because of the fact that
the cubs from Lewisburg have this
season had the advantage of the Carl
G. Snavely coaching tactics, while the
Academy players are now being train-
ed by a former Bucknell athlete, Rus-
sell Magee. It will be a pitched bat-
tle from the toss up to the referee’s
whistle at the end of the game.
State College, in its opening game,
on Saturday, defeated Lebanon Val-
ley 27 to 0. This was a better show-
ing than the Nittany Lions made last
year and those who saw the game
were impressed with the fact that
State has the makin’s of a good
eleven, and there is a possibility of
another winning team.

The fifty-seventh annual exhibit of
Lycoming county's big fair at Hughes-

Negro Electrocuted at Rockview.
Carl Nolly, negro, of Philadelphia,
was electrocuted at Rockview peni-
tentiary on Monday morning for the
murder of policeman Charles Gay, in
Philadelphia, on Christmas evening,
1925. Nolly refused the good offices
of a minister from the time he was |
brought to the death house on Satur-
day and went to ‘the chair unaccom- |
panied by a spiritual adviser. The
only remark he made was to say good
morning to the guards when they went
to his cell to conduct him to the chair.
Two contacts were given the con-
demned man, the first at 7.03 and the
second at 7.07, and one minute later
Nolly was pronounced dead by Dr. C. |
J. Newcomb. His body was unclaimed
and was buried in the penitentiary
cemetery Nolly’s electrocution is the |
first that has taken place at Rock-

dits were put to death on March 8th,
and his was the 176th electrocution in |
the twelve years the death chair has
been the means of capital punishment
in Pennsylvania.

Tragic Death of Mrs. John Tressler.
On Sunday Mr. and Mrs. John
Tressler, of Flemington, with their
five small children, motored to Snow
Shoe to visit friends. They had just
started home when Mrs. Tressler was
seized with convulsions, to which she
was subject, a hemorrhage followed
and she died in the auto before the
help of a physician could be secured.
As stated above Mrs. Tressler was
carried a small bottle of medicine with
her which proved effective as a prompt
relief. When she was seized on Sun-
day, however,
for the bottle only to find that the
cine had been spilld from it.
Dr. E. F. Harris responded quickly
when summoned to the automobile on
Sunday but the woman was past all
human aid. She was then removed
from the automobile and taken into
the - home of Mr. and Mrs. Harry
Reeser, and the undertaker summon-
ed who conveyed the remains to her
late home at Flemington. Mr. Tress-
ler was so overcome by the tragic
death of his wife and in trying to

i children that he was unable to drive
his auto and a resident of Snow Shoe
{drove the machine home for him. Mr.
