Bellefonte, Pa., April 19, 1929.
Mr. and Mrs. Luther Smith
celebrated their silver wedding an-
niversary, on Sunday, by taking 2
motor trip to Williamsport.
—The new A. & P. store in the Mc:
Clain block, next door to the Watch-
man office, is stocked with groceries
and opened for business yesterday.
— Shirley Ann is the name of a
little daughter born to Mr. and Mrs.
Charles E. Gates, of Hecla park, at
the Centre County hospital, on Tues-
day morning. Both babe and mother
are getting along splendidly.
The condition of Mrs. W. L
Fleming, who has been a patient in
the Centre County hospital for a
month or more, is slightly improved,
and she has been able to take liquid
nourishment, but she is still a very
sick woman.
A womanless wedding is a
unique innovation, but there is promise
that it will be portrayed to perfec-
tion by the Bellefonte Academy boys
on the nights of May 15th and 16th.
Keep your dates open for this amus-
ing entertainment.

Foster, in which he refused a new
‘trial and ordered judgment entered in
favor of the plaintiffs in accordance
‘with the verdict of the jury. The case
dates back to the December sessions,
1924, when action was brought by the
plaintiffs to recover damages as the
result of an automobile collision. At
the trial Mr. Thal was awarded $450
damage and his wife $50.

aunseasonably cold weather and the
ground slightly frozen yesterday

raising finances for the Bellefonte
haseball organization is meeting with
sufficient encouragement to justify
assurance that the fans of the town

and already a number of tickets have
been sold with quite a number of
promised buyers listed. The board of

Property Owners Want East Burn-
side Street Opened to Public.
Just five members, a necesary
quorum, were present at the regular
meeting of borough council on Mon-
day evening, the absentees being
Badger, Brouse, Cobb and Reynolds.
Harvey Ricker, representing prop-
erty owners along the line of east
Burnside street, was present and ask-
ed council to open that street through
to Blanchard street. He stated that
he and two other property owners
want to build homes on lots they own
there; in fact have already started
work on the foundations. All told
there are some five or six property
owners who want to build there, but
at present they have no way of get-
ting into or out from their lots with-
ou: going over property owned
by others. Mr. Ricker stated that
two of the property owners are will-
ing to donate the land for opening the
street. He also asked that a water
line be laid out to the proposed build-
ing operations. President Walker in-
formed Mr. Ricker that he could as-
sist very materially in an early open-
ing of the street by securing from the
property owners a declaration in
writing of their willingness to do-
nate free the necessary land, and the
Street and Water committees were
instructed to take charge of the mat-
Harry Zimmerman, of Reynolds
avenue, appeared before council and
requested an extension of the sani-
tary sewer from the Daniel Houser
property to his residence, a distance
of approximately 75 feet. Referred
to the Street committee.
A written communication was re-
ceived from Mrs. Emma Snyder
Cooke making complaint about the
West Penn Power company littering
her lots on east Linn street with wire
and other material and asking coun-
cil to take some action to compel
them to remove it. It was the sen-
timent of council that if the alleged
deposits of wire are entirely on Mrs.
Cooke’s land, they are naturally -n
private property and are not within
the jurisdiction of the borough. How-
ever, the matter was referred to the
Street committee for investigation.
The Water committee reported the
collection of $12.00 on the 1925 du-
plicate, $12.00 on the 1926, $20.50 on
the 1927 and $1005.50 on the 1928, as
well as $20 from the Beatty Motor
company for rent at the Phoenix mill.
Mr. Cunningham further reported
that the Water committee had clean-
ed out the race and pen stock (water
wheel pit) at the Gamble mill and
found both turbine wheels in such a
condition that they are deemed un-
fit for use. A wheel expert will be
in Bellefonte in about two or three
weeks when the committee hopes to
obtain data on the cost of installa-
tion of new wheels. Mr. Cunning-
ham stated that the mill in general
had been examined from top to bot-
tom and it is all in excellent condi-
tion with the machinery intact.
The Finance committee reported a
balance in the hands of the borough
treasurer of $1283.40. Renewal was
authorized for two notes totaling $2,-
500, and the treasurer was empower-
ed to borrow $3000 from the Fire-
inen’s Relief Association for one year
at five per cent.
Mr. Emerick reported that the Fi-
nance committee recommended the
same millage rate for 1929 as that
of last year, which is 10 mills for
borough purposes, 10 for street and
5 for interest. Council approved the
The Fire and Police committee re-
ported receipt of a check for $25.00
from W. H. Noll & Bros. for ser-
vices rendered by the Bellefonte fire-
men at the recent fire at Pleasant
All miscellaneous business having
been disposed of the question of the
purchase of new fire apparatus was
taken up. G. L. Carpeneto, chairman
of the Undine Fire company, submit-
ted the bids of the various manufac-
turers, as follows: The Peter Perch
company, a flat $10,000 after making
allowance for the Undine squad truck
of $1250. The Mack bid was $12,-
700, with an allowance of $1700 for
the squad wagon and a further reduc-
tion of $250 if cash payment is made,
which would make the price $10,750.
The bid of the Buffalo Fire Appara-
tus company was $10,500 with an al-
lowance of $850 for the truck, or a
net price of $9,650. The American
LaFrance bid was $13,850, with an al-
lowance of $1850 for the truck or a
net of $12,000. This company also
offered to include $365 worth of ex-
tras if cash is paid. The Perch com-
pany offered to put in a 130 horse
power motor if cash is paid and the
Mack company bid included the ex-
tras for $11,000 cash.
Mr. Carpeneto suggested that the
purchase be made on a cash basis,
giving the local banks the interest
that will have to be paid the company
if the apparatus is purchased on time
payments. He also stated that the
committee is in favor of purchas-
ing the Mack apparatus, as the com-
pany is located at Allentown and it
will be easy to get repairs at times
when any are needed. He also rec-
ommended that the Mack bid of $11 -
000 cash with $365 worth of extras
be accepted.
Mr. Emerick then made a motion
that his motion of some weeks ago
appropriating $4800 to the Undine
Fire company be rescinded, and the
same was passed by council after it!
was seconded by Mr. Cunningham.
Mr. Emerick then made another mo-
tion that the appropriation be $5500
which was duly seconded and passed.
As it will be several months before
the apparatus will be delivered coun-
cil will have at least that much tfme
to arrange for financing its share of
the purchase.
Bills totaling $4200 were approved
for payment, after which council ad-
Representatives of the Mack and
Peter Perch companies were in Belle-
fonte and after council adjourned the
committee of the Undine company
and several councilmen remained to
close up the purchase of the new ap-
paratus. The Peter Perch salesman
was first interviewed but he stood
solid on his last bid with the one stip-
ulation that he would allow one per
cent. off for cash.
The Mack salesman was then given
a hearing and after considerable dis-
cussion he made the following propo-
sition: A cash price for the apparatus
$10,750. Extra equipment desired
figured up to $405, and he agreed to
stand for $200 of that amount the
Undines to pay $205, which made the
total for the machine and equipment
$10,955. After some discussion the
contract was finally executed.
The next thing will be to arrange
for the payment, but as it will be at
least three months before the new
quadruple combination will be deliv-
ered there will be ample time to
make financial arrangements. So far
as the Undines are concerned it will
be a fairly easy matter. They now
have about $3000 available for pay-
ment on their portion of the cost and
will likely have no difficulty in bor-
rowing the balance. As to the bor-
ough’s share, it will simply mean the
floating of a few more notes, and if
the borough treasurer can borrow the
money at five per cent. it will be bet-
ter than paying six per cent. to the
Mack company.
“It is only the brave who wins the
fair,” is very applicable to the fisher-
men who had the hardihood to ven-
ture out for the opening of the trout
fishing season, Monday morning.
With a temperature only a few de-
grees above the frost line, a full
day’s rain which at times was mixed
with snow the weather was just the
opposite to that of even fair fishing
weather. In fact snow fell in the
mountains to a depth of several
inches. Of course with such condi-
tions prevailing it was hard work en-
ticing the trout to strike at any kind
of bait.
Several carloads of strangers who
motored to Bellefonte for the open-
ing, tried their luck on Logan’s branch
and Spring creek, but finally quit in
disgust. One party of three didn’t
get a trout, while another party of
three got two fair-sized ones.
The first catch of any consequence
brought to the attention of the writer
was that of Charles Brachbill, who
had eight nice ones, caught at the
junction of Buffalo Run with Spring
creek. We know he had them because
he showed them to us.
Others who had the perservance to
stick to it in defiance of the cold
wet weather were rewarded as fol-
lows: John McGovern 4, Ed Nelson
8, George Keeler one 171% inches long,
“Baldy” Gordon 23 and his son 24%,
Russell Witmer 4, Dr. J. J. Kilpatrick
14, Robert Montgomery 4, Patsy
Bathurst the limit on Logan’s branch,
Jacob Barlet 1, Lew Smith 12, Dr.
Stevens 0, Joe Thal 11, Harry Duke-
man 11.
A young man named Walker
caught one 20 inches long out near
the Abramsen plant on Wednesday
evening and about the same time
Paul Haag landed two 14 incBes in
the lime kiln dam. And Vince Bauer
took two that measured 17 and 12
inches, respectfully, from the same
Reports from the Fishing creek
section were to the effect that five

taken by any fisherman on the
——Why is it that every man elect-
ed to the Legislature or State Sen-
ate in Pennsylvania conceives the
idea that the only way he can best
serve his constituents is to introduce
a bill of some kind, no matter how
foolish or absurd the bill may be ? And
every bill introduced means dollars
out of the taxpayer's pockets. If you
don’t believe it hearken unto this. Up
to last Friday just seventeen car-
loads of paper, 425 tons, were used in
printing the various bills which were
presented this year and the legisla-
tive record, and five more carloads
were on their way to complete the
job before the Legislature adjourned.
Twenty-one carloads of paper costs a
pile of money and the printing of it
will run into hundreds of thousands
of dollars.

but formerly of Bellefonte, is a pa-
tient in the McGirk sanitorium, at
Philipsburg, where he recently under-
went an operation for the removal of
gall stones.
Several weeks ago the Watchman
editor gave his impressions of the
| musical proficiency of Wetzler’s Jun-
ior band, as displayed at a private
! concert given for the benefit of the
parents of the 110 boys and girls who
compose the organization. And now
it is announced that the band will
give a public concert in the court
house on Friday evening, April 26th,
at which time the small admissiqn fee
of fifty cents will be charged.
The concert will consist of over-
tures, Indian and dance character-
istics, marches, waltzes, songs, solos
and duets. The American Legion
drum and bugle corps will also be
featured with the band in several
The band organization must raise
$1500 for the purchase of new uni-
forms and this is the first public move
made to this end. Members of the
band are canvasing the town for the
sale of tickets and we bespeak for
them a cordial reception. Buy as
many tickets as you can, and wheth-
er you can attend or not, buy a tick-
et, anyway. The band is an organi-
zation which reflects great credit on
both Mileshurg and Bellefonte. Neith-
er the boys, themselves, nor their pa-
tient, indomitable leader profits one
cent for the time they devote to prac:

Every cent of the money received
goes for expenses and the upkeep of

have new uniforms and is also badly

to practice.

On Monday morning, or just seven
weeks to the day from the time An-
drew R. McNitt left Bellefonte avow-
edly to go to Miami Beach, Florida, to
attend the Sharkey-Stribling prize
fight, information was received here
that he is now in Florida, though
not at Miami Beach.
The information came in the shape
of a telegram to the McNitt Lumber
company, which was delivered to W.
clined to divulge the contents of the
missive aside from declaring that
“Andy is in Florida.” The fact, how-
ever, leaked out that the message was
sent from Jacksonville, but whether it
body else is not known.
As stated above Mr. McNitt lett
Bellefonte on February 25th, and at
that time was expected to return
within a month. When he failed to
do so members of his family in Mifflin
county and business associates here
became somewhat worried, as no
word had been received from him
prolonged absence and apparently
mysterious disappearance were broad-
cast on the radio and through the
newspapers of the country. Detec-

ed to assist in the search but three
more weeks passed before word came
on Monday of his location in Florida.
