Mr: Holmes and the Gasoline Tax.
Aq important as trunk line high-
ways may be to the people of this
State they are not one whit more im-
portant, nor even as important as
rural roads, township and county,
which furnish the principal means of
communication for the vast majority
of the people of the State outside of
a few large cities. Centre county is
a particular example of the import-
ance.of rural roads. As important
as these roads may be, they have for
the past several years been consist-
ently pushed to one side with all fa-
vors still going to the through high-
In“1921 when a tax on gasoline was
first enacted in this State, it was
provided in ‘the Act that fifty per
cent.’ of the revenue derived from this
tax should be returned to the counties
in which the tax was collected. This
provision of the gasoline tax Act
remained substantially unchanged by
succéeding Legislatures until the ses-
sion ‘of 1927. In that year by Act
No. 160 the Legislature imposed a
permanent tax of two cents a gallos,
and what is called an emergency tax,
of ore cent a gallon on gasoline. By
the same Act, the share of the coun-
ty in which the tax was collected is
limited to twenty five per cent. of the
permanent tax, and no share of the
emergency tax. In other words by the
1921 Act the counties got fifty per
cent. of the tax collected, by the 1927
Act they get sixteen and two-thirds
per cent. of the tax collected, or just
one-third of what they received un-
der the former Act.
Do not the rural roads of our com-
munity need repairing? Would it
not be a benefit to the people of Cen-
tre county if as many of our county
roads as possible were perm3nently
improved by making them hard sur-
faced roads? How many of our coun-
ty roads are conveniently traversable
in the dead of winter, and why should
they not be year around roads if the
county could finance their improve-
ment ?
Do the people of Centre county be-
lieve that the Hon. J. L. Holmes had
their interest at heart when he voted
to take away from them two-thirds
of their share of the gasoline tax?
In the face of an organized opposi-
tion to this bill on the part of the
representatives of both parties from
rural counties, he voted for poorer
county roads that a “machine” bill
could pass. The finances available
for the unkeep and improvement of
our rural reads are little enough with-
out having a eitizen of the county
vote to have them reduced.
Because the people of Centre coun-
ty want a man in the General Assem-
bly who will fill that position with
dignity, prestige and ability, together
with an eye single to the best inter-
ests of the constituency he serves,
they should elect Andrew Curtin
Thompson to the Legislature.

——DMalcolm Pifer, ten year old son
of Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm Pifer, of
Howard, was kicked in the face by
one of his father’s horses, last Sat-
urday morning, and is now undergo-
ing treatment in the Centre County
hospital. The horse had not been
worked for several days and when
taken out of the barn, on Saturday
morning, was somewhat frisky. Mal-
colm got too close to the horse and
when it threw up its heels one of
them caught the boy in the face, in-
flicting a gash on the bridge of the
nose. His condition is not considered
Clown of This Campaign.
The clown of the campaign is Wil-
i liam E. Borah, Senator in Congress
from Idaho. Posing as a ponderous
| champion of righteousness chairman
Raskob; of the Democratic National
- committee, has exhibited him to the
public as a miserable pettyfogger, dis-
torting facts, misrepresenting records
‘and perverting history. In every
speech he has made since the open-
ing of the campaign he has stultified
| himself and in most of them malign-
, ed others. In Minneapolis, referring
to the charge that Hoover had held
down the price of wheat after the
close of the war, he said, “there is
not one iota of history that does not
contradict this falsehood.” Mr. Borah,
himself, originated the charge.
In January, 1919, there was pend-
ing in the Senate a resolution ap-
propriating $100,000,000 to the food
control commission. Discussing it
Mr. Borah said “three of the vast
monopolies which control the food
supply of the country have directed
and controlled the food administra-
tion since its organization. He (Mr.
Hoover) permits these people to, in
effect, fix their own prices, and their
profits under Mr. Hoover, amounted
all the way from 25 per cent. to 40
per cent. for the last two years,” and
added that “no man who has such per-
verted views of decency ought to be
trusted with unlimited power to deal
with $100,000,000.” That statement
was the beginning of the charge
against Hoover.
But now with the fond expectation
of reward from Hoover in the event
of his election, or favors from the
party in case the vision of the port-
folio of the State Department van-
ishes, he is fulsome in his praise of
the Republican candidate for Presi-
dent. Then he declared that Hoover
went to Europe as the emissary of
the American packing houses to sell
their products at inflated prices.
Now he says it was a “desperate fight
to sustain the price of farm pro-
ducts,” and that it was “the most
magnificent exhibition of charity and
humanity in the history of the world.”
Apparently he imagines that the peo-
ple of the country, generally, and
those of the city of Minneapolis in
particular, are idots.
stl ft——eem—
One of Herbert Hoover's asso-
ciates in war work in Belgium says
Mr. Hoover was a Democrat then.
That was before the Presidential bee
got into his bonnet.
———— mm
The Constitutional Amendments.
The Republican leaders of the State
are divided on the merits of the con-
stitutional amendments to be voted on
at the coming election. State Treas-
urer Lewis seems to be opposed to
all the amendments and Governor
ly one, that providing for $50,000,000
for the Highway Department, which
also has the support of Highway Com-
missioner Stuart. Some of the Au-
tomobile organizations of the State
have declared against this amendment
on the ground that the revenues of
the department are ample to meet
necessary expenditures, and a good
many of the leading newspapers con-
cur in this opinion. There is a sus-
picion, moreover, that this proposi-
tion is tainted.
Some of the amendments have a
purely local interest but there are
others of State-wide interest and ob-
vious merit which should receive the
earnest support of all voters. Among
these is No. 2, which provides for the
issue of $8,000,000 in bonds “for the
necessary for the uses and purposes
of ‘the institution.” This splendid in-
stitution has been shamefully crip-
pled in its work through neglect of
the Legislature and it is high time
that the people of the State should
voice a protest by adopting this
amendment. Number 6, and number
10 are also propositions of the high-
est merit and should receive the cor-
dial support of the people of the
Resolution No. 3 provides for the
issue of bonds for the purpose of ac-
quiring land for reforestation. This
is really a proposition to invest mon-
ey in an enterprise which is certain
to be profitable. Numbers 6 and 13
provide for the adoption and use of
voting machines when desired by the
people. If adopted by the’ people,
and the necessary legislation is enact-
ed by the Legislature, election frauds
may be prevented in future, and all
honest voters desire that result.
Number 10 provides for funds to buy
lands and construct and equip build-
ings “for the care and maintenance
of penal offenders, delinquents, men-
tal defectives, epileptics and persons
mentally diseased.
It Must Have Been Some Address.
From the Denver Kiwanian of Oc-
tober 24 we take the appended notice
of an address delivered before that
body by the Rev. Wilson P. Ard.
It is evident that the able young
clergyman ‘is fulfilling the expecta-
tions that his pastorate here presaged.
Wilson Ard—he never fails us.
Great eloquence he sets before us—
but it isn’t just that—there is deep
thought making that eloquence a
thing of lingering substance; and
greater yet a throbbing quality from
within which reaches out to touch
hearts with refreshing warmth and
unleash hidden urges to better living.
“Seeing the Unseen”—What a sub-
ject and what an address. It was re-
lated to Kiwanis and to us as Kiwan-
ians. Words from this pen will not
attempt to comment upon what was
said. Those who did not attend miss-
ed a great, great deal.

Fraudulent Contract Stopped.
The conspiracy through which the
Sinclair oil corporations and the Re-
publican organization has been rob-
bing the government of its naval oil
reserves for many years got a hard
jolt, the other day, when the Attorney
General handed down an opinion that
the contract is invalid. The contract
was entered into in 1922 between the
Sinclair Crude Oil Purchasing com-
pany and Albert B. Fall, Secretary
i of the Interior, and under it the Sin-
{clair company obtained $33,757,350
| worth of sil. It was for a period of
five years and contained a “joker”
| authorizing a renewal without ~om-
! petition for another five year period.
: The Attorney General helds that the ,
. original contract was fraudulent and
the renewal invalid. :
In the advertisement for the origi-
.nal contract no mention was made of
the renewal feature, which was in-
- serted subsequently by Secretary Fall,
‘apparently under a secret agreement
{ with Sinclair. When the contract ex-
ipired in 1927 and application was
{made for the renewal the attention
| of the then Secretary of the Interior
{was called to the fraud, but he dis-
| regarded the warning and signed up
| the renewal. Senator Walsh, of Mon-
{ tana, called the matter to the atten-
| tion of the President who referred it
[to the Attorney General in the hope,
| brobably, that some way might be
[found to oblige Mr. Sinclair. For
| seven months it was buried in the of-
fice of the Attorney General, who was
finally forced to act.
! A significant feature of this shady
! proceeding is the fact that the Secre-
i tary of the Interior who granted the
i renewal of the contract in the face of
full knowledge it was fraudulent was
Hubert Work, now chairman of the
! Republican National committee and
: manager-in-chief of Herbert Hoover's

only a renewal of a fraudulent con-
tract legalizing the robbery of the
government but a renewal of the cor-
rupt partnership between Harry Sin-
clair and the administration at Wash-
ington to drain the naval oil re-
serves of the country. It has been
stopped, temporarily, through the vig-
ilance of Senator Walsh, but if Hoov-
er is elected President who knows
what will happen.

Plane Crashed in Tree Top Near Polk
Pa., During Storm Last Thurs-
day Morning.
Pilot William C. Hopson, flying the
night mail from New York to Cleve-
land, was hurled to his death, at an
early hour last Thursday morning,
when his plane struck the top of a
dead chestnut tree in a strip of wood-
land, near Polk, Pa. Hopson left
New York at 9:45 p. m., Wednesday
evening, passed over Bellefonte on
time and was reported passing over
Clarion at 1:05 Thursday morning.
idents of the country west of Clar-
ion reported having seen several
flares dropped from the plane and
scout ships sent out from Celeveland
scoured that section all day, on
Thursday, without finding a trace of
the missing pilot or plane.
Early Friday morning, however, the
wrecked plane, partially burned, and !
the mangled and burned body of
the pilot were found in a strip of
woodland near Polk. A hard rain
storm had swept over that section of
the State about tt time pilot Hop-
son was on his trip and it is likely
he was flying low to keep under the
heavy clouds. But he evidently was
lower than he thought and his plane
crashed into the tree, breaking off
thirty feet of the top, was hurled
against another tree and crashed to
the ground, a mass of wreckage,
which burst into flames and was
mostly consumed. Of the one thous-
and pounds of mail carried in the
plane only about ten pounds were
salvaged from the charred wreck.
Pilot Hopson was one of the oldest
fliers in the service, having flown for:
eight years. He was known as a care-
ful but daring flier. A number of
years ago he was in Bellefonte and
wanted to go to New York. The pit
of the mail plane east was filled with
mail so Hopson climbed onto one of
the wings and made the trip to Had-
ley field. He is survived by a wife
and fifteen year old son, Robert Hop-
son, living at Omaha, Neb.
In Hopson’s load of mall were a
number of diamonds and in hunting
through the abandoned wreckage for
souvenirs, on Friday afternoon some
one found a diamond. Quickly the
news spread and hundreds of people
flocked to the scene on the hunt for
precious stones. One man found four
and others who found some sold them
for Lwo and three dollars each, stones
said to be worth from $85 to $100.
When the Postoffice Department
heard of the finding of the diamonds
an inspector was sent to Polk and he
has recovered most of the gems.

farmer who, on Monday of last week,

bargain, as he failed to appear and
make settlement last Thursday. It is
understood he is going to appeal the
case to court. Mr. Haugh was arrest-
ed because he failed to declare the
killing of the deer to game wardens
within forty-eight hours.

GARDNER.—Mrs. “Clara Strick-
land Gardner, wife of M. IL Gardner,
passed away at her home in Clear-
field, on Saturday morning, following
a prolonged illness.
She was a daughter of Cyrus J. and
Nancy Huey Strickland, and was born
in Bellefonte sixty-five years ago.
She was educated in the public schools
of the town and as a young woman
engaged in teaching. For a number
of years she taught in the second
grade of the Bellefonte schools and
proved a most efficient instructor.
Her inherent love for children and
school activities remained with her
always and her greatest pride was the
success in later years of the boys and
girls who had been her pulpils in their
youth. As a girl she united with the
Bellefonte Presbyterian church and
retained her membership there all hey
life. During her years of residence in
Bellefonte she was active in all kinds
of church work as well as in other af-
fairs, social and otherwise.
In 1889 she married Mitchell I.
Gardner and they lived in Bellefonte
until almost twelve years ago when
they moved to Clearfield. In 1918
they moved to Johnstown where Mr.
Gardner, as division chief, opened the
internal revenue office in that city.
In 1921, when Mr. Gardner left the |
federal service, they returned to
Clearfield and that had been her home
ever since. During her residence
there she made many warm friends
who showed her many kindnesses and
who sincerely regret her passing |
away. ;
Her only survivors are her husband
and one son, Harold Gardner, at
home; and one sister, Mrs. A. Lester
Sheffer, of Milroy. Funeral services
were held at her late home at 2 o'clock
on Tuesday afternoon, burial being
made in Hillerest cemetery, Clear-
Not enough for her are flowers
Her life is so blent with ours
That in all we dare and do
She is partner, through and through:

Happy when we smile again,

That is ever mother’s way. * * »
