FEBRUARY COURT SESSION
CONVENED ON MONDAY.
Cases Heard and Sentences Imposed
by Judge Fleming.
Court convened on Monday morn-
ing at ten o’clock. The first case call-
ed was that of the Commonwealth
vs. Russel Letterman, indicted for a
statutory offense. Prosecutrix, Clara
Heckman. The prosecutrix is from
Centre Hall and the defendant from
Milesburg. The testimony in this
case developed certain facts relative
to a juvenile now in the Darlington
home in Delaware county, and at the
close of the testimony and after the
jury retired the district attorney
moved the court for the arrest of
James Shechler, a witness for the de-
fense in the above stated cause. He
was promptly arrested by the sheriff
and just before adjournment on Mon-
day evening the court sat as a com-
mitting magistrate and held the de-
fendant in the sum of $1000. Verdict
in the Letterman case was guilty.
The next case called was a civil
case of Isaac Underwood vs. Burdine
Butler, being an appeal and suit to
recover the balance of a book account
of $69.99. Verdict on Monday even-
ing in favor of the plaintiff for $69.99,
with interest $33.83, or a total
amount of $103.82.
Comomnwealth vs. William Flick
Jr., indicted for a statutory offense.
Prosecutrix, Lola Wise. This case
was from Sandy Ridge. Defendant
plead guilty and the usua: sentence
in such cases was imposed.
Commonwealth vs. John Dullen.
Indicted for manufacturing and be-
ing in possession of intoxicating li-
quor for beverage purposes. FProse-
cutor, Leo Boden, county detective.
This case is from Marion township.
Defendant plead guilty and was sen-
tenced to pay the costs, fine of $50
and put under probation for a period
of one year.
Commonwealth vs. Charles Irvin,
indicted for possession of intoxicat-
ing liquor for beverage purposes.
Prosecutor Leo Boden. This case is
from Philipsburg. Defendant plead
guilty and was sentenced to pay the
costs of prosecution, $500 fine and
imprisonment in the county jail for
not less than 9 months nor more than
a year and a half.
Commonwealth vs. Paul Waite, in-
dicted for asault and battery. Pros-
ecutrix, Anna D. Waite, his wife,
This case was from Spring township
and the defendant plead guilty. Pri-
vate counsel for the Commonwealth
suggested that the case be changed
from assault and battery to a charge
of desertion and non-support, and
an order made for the support of the
wife and children, which was grant-
ed, and the Court ordered the de-
fendant to pay the costs of prosecu-
tion, $25 per month for the support
of his wife and children and go un-
der probation for a period of one
Late Monday afternoon a jury was
drawn in the case of John H. Det-
wiler vs. R. H. Shook, an appeal.
The action was brought to recover
an alleged balance due on the pur-
chase price of a cow which the de-
fendant bought back in 1918. After
hearing the evidence pro-and con the
jury returned a verdict in favor of
Commonwealth vs. Lloyd Ripka, in-
dicted for a statutory offense. Pros-
ecutrix, Berenice Ripka. Defendant
plead guilty and was given the usual
Commonwealth vs. Harry Kim-
mell, William Minnick and Harold
Wagner, indicted for the larceny of
a deer. Prosecutor, John E. Bubb.
The defendants are from Cressona,
Schuylkill county, and the prosecutor
from Potter township. The case dates
back to the deer hunting season last
December, when Mr. Bubb claimed
the defendants stole his deer and
took it home with them. According
to Mr. Bubb he shot a doe on Decem-
ber 3rd, giving as identification rec-
ords that it was shot on the top of
the skull and through the left front
shoulder. He took the deer to a cab-
in ocupied by the Schuylkill county
hunters and asked permission to park
the carcass outside the cabin, which
was granted. He also made the re-
quest that if the party left the moun-
tains before he came for his deer they
put it into the cabin. When Bubb
returned for his deer it was gone
and so were the hunters. Inquiry re-
vealed the fact that they had left
camp the same evening he had left
his deer at the cabin, and that they
had taken two deer with them. The
men were followed to Cressona, where
it is claimed, a deer was found which
bore similar shot marks as the one
claimed by Bubb.
After hearing all the evidence in
the above case the jury returned a
verdict of guilty, but attorneys for
the defendants promptly made a mo-
tion for a new trial, which will be
argued in due time.
Commonwealth vs. Ernest Long, of
College township, indicted for selling
intoxicating liquor for beverage pur-
poses. Prosecutor, Leo Boden, coun-
ty detective. The alleged sale was
made by the wife, and the Common-
wealth could not show that the hus-
band was about, the court instruct-
ed the jury to find the defendant not
guilty but dispose of the costs. The
court also ordered the Common-
wealth to proceed after the wife of
Mr. Long. The jury returned a ver-
dict according to the instructions, of
not guilty, but the defendant to pay
Commonwealth vs. John Burns and
Ernest Long, indicted for transport-
ing liquor for beverage purposes. Pros-
ecutor, Leo Boden, county detective.
The liquor was transported in the car
of John Burns but admittedly placed
there by Ernest Long. The defend-
ants plead guilty and the court sen-
tenced Burns to pay the costs of
prosecution, fine of $100 and undergo
imprisonment in the county jail for
a period of four months, and sentenc-
ed Long to pay the costs of prosecu-
tion, fine of $200 and undergo im-
prisonment in the Allegheny countv
work house for a period of not less
than six months nor more than one
Commonwealth vs. William Man-
chester, of Bellefonte, indicted for
false pretense in two cases. The
prosecutor in the first case was W.
H. Montgomery and in the second
case J. A. Harter. The defendant
plead guilty. In the first case the
court sentenced defendant to pay the
costs of prosecution, fine of $1.00 and
not less than one nor more than two
years in the penitentiary; and in the
second case a like sentence was im-
posed, the second sentence to begin
at the end of the first sentence.
Commonwealth vs. William Matz,
of Tayor township, indicted for sell-
ing intoxicating liquor. Prosecutor,
Alfred E. Verbecker. The prosecu-
tion was brought on the allegation of
a Mr. Philips that he had purchased a
gallon jug of whiskey from Matz
in December. The latter not only
denied the charge but proved by com-
petent witnesses that he was not at
home on the day of the alleged sale.
The jury returned a verdict of not
guilty but pay the costs.
Commonwealth vs. Samuel Judy,
of State College, indicted for the lar-
ceny of a pig from the pen of Jolin
C. Homan. The evidence was purely
circumstantial and the jury returned
a verdict of not guilty.

GAME REPORTED SCARCE
IN SEVEN MOUNTAINS.
Not a report has reached this of-
fice, this winter, from farmers living
along the foot-hills of the Seven
mountains of depredations by deer on
their farm lands. In previous years
the deer came out of the mountains
by the dozen and pawed up grain
fields and made so bold as to in-
vade barnyards in search of feed.
This was accounted for because of the
fact that natural food was reported
scarce in the mountains.
Last fall there was an abundance
of feed in the mountains but this is
no reason why there shouldn’t be
some evidence of deer in the foothills.
Last week a Bellefonte man ac-
companied a local game warden on a
trip of five miles or more through
the Seven mountains, going in at
Walter Gherritys and passing through
some of the best deer territory, and
the only trail discovered since the
fall of snow almost a month ago was
one believed made by a doe and fawn.
Aside from this trail the surface of
the snow was unbroken by deer
tracks in the entire stretch of their
The warden some time previous
had put out corn and small grain as
feed for birds, etc., and a visit to
those places showed that the feed
was still there, with no evidence of
it having been touched by any kind
of game. The same condition pre-
vails, it is reported, in other sections
of the mountains.
Such being the case the question
naturally arises what has become of
all the deer reported by game war-
dens as being so plentiful in the Sev-
en mountains last fall? While no
accurate statement was ever given
out by game wardens or the State
Game Commission as to the number
of doe killed in Centre county last
fall, it is estimated by hunters that
the number was probably in excess
of six thousand. Before the season
ovened, however, game wardens
claimed that there were fully twenty-
five to thirty thousand doe deer in
the mountains, and if this estimate
were anyways near correct the kill of
last fall should not have affected the
herd to such a degree that no evi-
dence of deer in great numbers can
be found now.

Col. Wilbur F. Leitzell Promoted As
A Prohibition Officer.
Col. Wilbur F. Leitzell, of State
College, but who during the past year
has been located in Philadelphia as
a deputy prohibition administra-
tor, was given a promotion, last Fri-
day to acting assistant prohibition
administrator in charge of the mid-
dle prohibition district of Pennsyl-
vania. The appointment was made
by Col. Samuel O. Wynne, prohibi-
Col. Leitzell succeeds Col. E. R.
Wilson as enforcement officer for the
middle district, which comprises thir-
ty-two counties, Col. Wilson having
been transferred to Porto Rico. The
appointment of Col. Leitzell was
made because of his familiarity with
the district. In anticipation of his
appointment he resigned a week pre-
vious as a member of the staff of
Major General William G. Price, di-
vision machine gun officer of the Penn-
sylvania National Guard. Col. Leitz-
ell’s headquarters will be at Lewis-
burg, which will be nearer his home
at State College.
THE Y. BANQUETS DADS
AND SONS SUCCESSFULLY.
Just two hundred and ten fathers
and sons sat down to a banquet in
the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium, Tuesday
evening. It was the largest and most
delightful affair of the sort carried
through by the Association.
The food and service was planned
and in charge of the ladies’ auxiliary
and the excellence of it and the
deftness with which the many guests
were served left no doubt as to the
| thoroughness with which the ladies
had organized for the unusual under-
taking. Considering the handicaps
under which they worked, the lack of
kitchen facilities for handling so
many people and other inconveniences
certainly it must have been the in-
spiration of the cause in which they
worked that carried
| During the meal, with Cecil Walker
as director and Miss Freda Edmiston
| at the piano, there was mass singing
of topical songs set to popular music.
lt quickly changed the threatened
stiltedness of the affairinto one of
community of spirit. Dads were sons
again and sons were just themselves
—and what could have been finer. |
And when that High school quartet
got up to show what it could do—
gosh, we were living back in the 90’s
and ready to go out and harmonize
on every street corner in Bellefonte. |
Of course the Kiwanis quartet was |
better from an artistic standpoint |
but the kick comes when the boys do
it for the pure love of letting or
thing out that they haven't fully!
realized is in their souls.
J. Kennedy Johnston, president of |
the Association, introduced the toast- |
master, Rev. Homer C. Knox, who
spoke briefly before announcing that
Henry Bullock would offer the toast
to “Our Dads.” He was followed by
Rev. Robert Thena, who proposed a
toast to “Our Sons.” Then general
secretary Heineman and his assistant
Mr. Singer, spoke on the Y. work and
the speaker of the evening, Prof. J.
H. Frizell, of State College, was in-
Prof. Frizell was in fine form and
rose to the occasion with a splendid
talk on the ideal relationship of fath-
er and son. It was a very serious
sermon in a cleverly lightened vein
and we think left a deep impression
on both the fathers and their sons.
Big Boxing Bout in Local Armory
The Bellefonte Academy boxing
team will put on their third home
bout of the season, in the local ar-
mory tomorrow (Saturday) evening,
with the Freshman team of the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania. The bout
will not begin until 9:30 o'clock,
which will enable business men and
their employees to attend. The price
of admission will be one dollar to all,
no preferred seats.
- The Academy boxers have won
both bouts put on in Bellefonte, and, |
while the University Freshmen are
reported as being quite handy with
their fists, the locals feel that they
are a match for them. But whether |
they win or lose it is sure to be a
contest worth seeing.
Mr. Hughes has announced that no
small boys will be admitted without |
paying the full price of admission. |
The principle reason for this decis- |
ion is the damage done to the box
ing platform by unknown small boys.
According to reports the boys have
been forcing an entrance into the
armory and doing considerable dam-
age, not only to the boxing platform
but to the building, and Mr. Hughes
is taking this means of protecting hiS suit of the high water, Mrs. Strunk re-
; marked that we had nothing on her, that LO)
| she had been obliged to wade through |
own property, at least.

Keystone Division Wins West Penn
Power Load Building Contest.
Word came today to the Keystone |
division office of the West Penn Pow-
er company that the local division is
the winner of the 1928 employees load
building contest. Congratulations are
being extended to Kemp G. Fuller,
division manager, and his men on
their success in the campaign just |
closed, which placed the Keystone
division at the head of the list of |
awards. Prize money in the amount |
of $900.00 will be divided among Key-
stone division employees in recogni-
tin of their efforts. |
That Keystone’s victory was made
possible by team play is indicated by
the fact that the individual high point |
scorer for the division gathered a to- |
tal lower than that of the leader in
any other section of the company’s

—Newton E. Hess, of State College, was
in Bellefonte, Saturday, calling on a few
of his friends and looking after some bus-
iness matters. He is the county’s real
big game hunter, but he is fearful that
+ his days on the chase are over because
of a little “kink’ in one of his knees
that seems to baffle the skill of all the ex-
perts he goes to. He has visited surgeons
osteopaths, and chiropracters, all to no
avail. Apparently the knee is just as good
as it ever was, but without any pre-
monitory warning, it just gives way and
Mr. Hess has great difficulty in using it
for some hours afterward. While here
he showed us the reports of last season's
Alaskan hunts sent out by the govern-
ment up there and we noticed that no one
got a brown kadiak bear any larger than
his largest, which measured ten feet
from tip to tip.
—During the course of a little chat,
Wednesday morning, with Gilbert F. Noll,

contractor of Pleasant Gap, we learned that
he was flying rather high on Wednesday
of last week. Capt. Donald Stuart, an at-
| tache of the Bureau of Standards, Wash-
ington, D. C., was here having a look at
the radio experimental work that is being
carried on at the Bellefonte airdrome. The
extremely cold weather at the time crack-
ed the starter on Col: Stuart's cabin plane
and as the party with him could not wait
here until repair parts came in they Ieft
by train. The Colonel then invited Gilbert
to fly with him to Washington. The dis-
tance, by air, is 142 miles, and they made
it in 82 minutes. Gilbert said they had a
fine trip. The highest altitude they reach-
ed was 5000 feet at which point the tem-
perature was 20 degrees below zero. So
far as flying was concerned it was nothing
new to Gilbert, for ten years ago he flew
to Cleveland with “Slim” Lewis, perhaps
the most popular pilot ever located in
Bellefonte. Eighty-two minutes to Wash-
ington by air and twelve hours back by
rail is some contrast.
