= Bellefonte, Pa, June 22, 1928.
Hurry appears to be on of the ma-
jor interests of civilization, said Dr.
Theodore B. Appel, Secretary of
Health, recently. To get a place safe-
ly or to do a job properly are no long-
er the first and only considerations.
In addition everyone must see how
quickly he can arrive and how fast
the job can be done.
And while this driving force of
speed is largely responsible for many
of today’s great inventions, it is al-
mos trite to add that time is not to
be had in any greater quantity than
before. Indeed, quite on the contrary,
the more time that is left for leisure,
the less leisurely any of us become.
It is one of nature’s little tricks ard
The whole thing would be a huge
joke were it not for the fact that a
‘joker is concealed within it. And it
is this joker that interests the public
bealth official. The joker is heart
For example, an Englishman in-
quired of a panting American friend,
who with an expression of achieve-
ment had caught the 5.15 train, ‘Why
all the hurry?” To which the ex-
hausted acquaintance answered, “I
saved twenty minutes. The next train
doesn’t leave until 5.35! “And what
minutes you saved?” asked the Eng-
lishman. The fast breathing individ-
ual answered him in a most unex-
pected and dramatic way. He dropped
his head, gasped and forthwith died!
And thereby hangs the moral of his
talk. Though remarkable strides have
been made in the mechanical world,
the human body remains the same
machine it always was. It has not
changed model or substituted new
parts. It was definitely made for one
purpose namely, to live; and live ac-
cording to specified and definite rules.
While it has geared itself, by rea-
son of its amazing adaptability, to the
swift pace of ay’s life it still re-
mains fundamentally tne same old
body; and consequently possesses the
limitations set down for it in the or-
jginal modet. Men and women, there-
fore, should give some serious con-
sideration to this fact, which is so
painfully evident to vital statisticians,
public health people and bereaved rel-
Speed and the absurd value placed
on time that send men of middle age
or more running like a school boy to
catch a trolley or a train is foolish
and may be deadly.
The same speed that pushes a man
into twelve hours of hard work and
then leads him into amusements that
rob him of his proper sleep is equally
Speed that does not permit a per-
son time enough to go to a doctor for
an annual examination once a year
and to the dentist twice a year is
Speed that rushes to make dollars
and limits life is likely to run off the
track when he least expects it.
Speed that does not allow one to
live according to the fixed rules and
laws of nature destroys life.
What is the antidote? Simply this:
Take time to take time—and live!
If we could get wornout men and
women to take the needed rest before
utter prostration comes many lives
would be saved. It is dreadful to see
a man struggle along, striving hard
to finish his task, and then falling in
I have in mind a man close to sev-
enty, working at his desk every day,
his face haggard, his lips white, all
but crushed under his daily task. I

sun, get a lot of needed sleep and
.come back to take up your work with

I am doing it so your wife will

importance of the matter and then,
Mister, you'll take that partial vaca-

Whenever a man tells me that his

that he is saying to himself, “I wish

If you do, you will get twice as
much out of the three weeks you have
left for summer. Think it over.
It will do your wife good to have a
little vacation, too. How about At-

folks, why not go to the city for a

In the summer season many people
become sun crazy. Under a misdi-

Centre County Girls to Contest for
Three Centre county girls are to
enter the final declamatory contest
that will decide the winner of the
grand gold medal on the opening day
of the annual encampment of the
young peoples’ branch of the Pennsyl-
vania Women’s Christian Temper-
ance Union to be held next week at
the Pennsylvania State College. They
will compete on Monday night against
three other girls from various parts
of the State, each of the contestants
going into the finals as the winner of
a gold medal in preliminary contests.
The Centre countians are Miss Beu-
lah Harnish, a Bellefonte High school
student from Wingate; Miss Marga-
ret Borland and Miss Gretchen Mar-
quardt, both of State College. Miss
Myrtle Seeley, of DuBois, has charge
of this contest.
The convention will take to State
College about 100 delegates from
thirty-seven Pennsylvania counties.
They will be housed in McAllister
Hall dormitory for the duration of
the convention, June 25 to 30. The
aim of the convention is the training
of delegates for citizenship and ob-
servance of law.
Included in the list of prominent
speakers for the convention is Mrs.
Ella M. George, of Beaver Falls, for
twenty-two years president of the
State W. C. T. U. She will appear
on the program Wednesday and
Thursday. According to Mrs. W. A.
Broyles, chairman of the Centre coun-
ty section and a member of the board
of directors of the State organization,
others to attend include Mrs. Lillian
Trezise, of DuBois, vice president of
the State W. C. T. U.; Miss Lena Dell
Wiggins, Tunkhannock, general secre-
tary; Miss Winola Jewell, Chicago,
national Y. P. B. general secretary,
who will speak Thursday evening; D.
Lloyd Claycomb, Altoona; Willard
Kratz, Chalfont, who will be in charge
of the instructional course, and Prof.
J. W. Yoder, of Juniata College, who
will direct the music during the con-
DeMolays to Visit Philipsburg Next
The Penn Centre chapter Order of
DeMolay has accepted an invitation
to go to Philipsburg, Thursday, June
28th, and hold a ceremonial session in
the asylum of Moshannon Command-
ery Knights Templar. In the neigh-
borhood of forty members of the Penn
Centre chapter are residents of Phil-
ipsburg and vicinity, and a class &
almost that many candidates will be
taken into the order at the meeting
The local chapter, which was or-
ganized under the auspices of Con-
stans Commandery Knights Templar,
No. 33, has now a membership of
about one hundred and fifty and is
growing right along.
Married at Golden Wedding of Grand-
Mr. and Mrs. George H. Bitner, of
Beech Creek, celebrated their golden
wedding, on Wednesday of last week,
and had with them on that happy oc-
casion one hundred and eighty-four
relatives and friends, which included
their seven sons and daughters with
During the afternoon Sanford Huff,
of Williamsport, a grandson of Mr.
and Mrs. Bitner, was married to Miss
Velma Boone, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Wilson Boone, of Howard. The
ceremony was performed by Rev. Da-
vid Neilson, of the Church of Christ,
at Blanchard, the ring service being
used. Mr. and Mrs. Huff will reside
P. O. S. of A. to Picnic July 4th at
The Patriotic Order Sons of Amer-
ica, of the Central Pennsylvania As-
sociation, will hold an all-day picnic
at Newton Hamilton on July 4th. The
association covers thirteen counties
and includes one hundred and fifty
camps. The Newton Hamilton
grounds offer splendid advantages for
such a gathering. Located on the
line of the Pennsylvania railroad the
park can be reached by train or auto-
mobile. Free parking space will be
provided for autos. Meals can be se-
cured on the grounds by those not
wishing to be bothered with baskets.
Dinners, 60 cents; supper, 50. Prizes
will be awarded in athletic contests.
The public is also invited.
Restore Telephone Service in Forests.
After one of the most serious and
widespread disruptions of service in
history, the net work of telephone
wires which help protect the State
forests have been repaired.
When the snow storms of late April
swept the State, foresters joined the
thousands of commercial repairmen
who worked for weeks to restore serv-
jce. Unlike commercial telephone
lines, many of those on the State for-
est lands are necessarily in places
difficult of access.
As the snow came in the period
known to be the most dangerous for
forest fires repairs were hurried with
more than the usual speed.
Space Trees Carefully.
Spacing of trees is something that
cannot be governed by fixed rules,
says the American Tree association.
Street trees may be placed from 30
to 80 feet apart, depending upon the
variety used. Catalpa and Lombardy
poplars, which are not very commend-
able for street use, may be planted
at the minimum distance given above
while sycamore and elm require the
Harrisburg Office-holder Found at
William A. Moore, director of the
land bureau in the Department of In-
ternal Affairs, at Harrisburg, who had
been missing from his office and home
since May 18th, was found in Lock
Haven on Saturday. Moore was last
seen at the railroad station, in Ty-
rone, on May 20th, and then appar-
ently dropped out of sight. As he
frequently made long trips through-
out the State inspecting woodlands
his disappearance caused no concern
for a week or two but as time passed
and nothing was heard either of or
from him, his absence became a mat-
ter of investigation on the part of his
family as well as State officials.
Moore was found sitting on a bench
in the railroad station at Lock Haven
and had the appearance of a man who
had just awakened from a long sleep.
His baggage was missing and all his
money gone, but he had his watch and
other personal belongings. When
questioned he said that he had gone
to Mt. Union from Harrisburg, on
business, and the next day had gone
to Tyrone. When he arrived at the
latter place he had a severe headache
and went to a hotel, signed up for a
room and went to bed. That is the
last he was able to recall until he
awoke in the station at Lock Haven.
Old Time Handshake is Greatly Over-
done Says Hoosier Author.
Declaring that the “old American
handshake had been greatly over-
done,” Meredith Nicholson, widely
known Indiana author spoke before
a group of business men at Indian-
apolis on the subject of “The Courte-
sies of Life as They Apply to Men
Elaborating on the subject cf hand-
shaking in replying to a question
from one of his audience, Nicholson
decried the type of person who “paws
all over you and thumps your back
painfully” as a form of greeting.
“The salesman who comes to you with
outstretched hand without your tak-
ing the initiative is a little bit pre-
sumptious,” Nicholson said. ‘‘He
should wait for you to indicate ‘how
you desire to be greeted, unless your
acquaintance is of long standing. The
same condition should exist in the
manner of greeting women and older
persons. They should be given the
privilege of taking the initiative.”
“The best way to make a ‘hit’ with
your best girl and her folks is to al-
ways speak to her parents er grand-
parents when you call,” he advised.
“Before you become tongue tied and
paralyzed trying to tell Marie how
wonerful she looks step over and say
‘good evening’ to grandma and ask
after her health. This is no joshing
matter, boys, it works.

Sale of Blood Tansfusions is Big Busi-
Competition in the sale of human
blood has become so keen in Vienna
that the price has dropped to fifty
Austrian shillings a liter. :
This blood is used in blood trans-
fusion. These have become so com-
mon in medical praetice in that city
that a regular trade has developed
and quite a number of people live
solely from the sale of their blood.
Many of them have been bled from
twelve to fourteen times; the rec-
ord is sixteen times.
The Eiselberg clinic is the distri-
bution center of the “bleeders;” from
there they are sent to the various
hospitals as needed.
The “bleeding” trade is, of course,
the last refuge of the impoverished.
After about fourteen bleedings, how-
ever, they find themselves “without
blood and without money,” and the
constant bleeding has made them in-
£2pabile of heavy manual labor for

lives are often saved by the blood
trasfusions are kept secret from the
