URGE JUNIOR FARMERS
TO PREPARE FOR CAMP.
The officers of the Junior Farmers’
association of Centre county have
begun preparations for the annual
camp at Centre Hall during the
week of the Grange encampment, the
latter part of August, according to
W. S. Jeffries, county vocational su-
Last year, only a comparatively
small number of boys attended the
camp, with the result that it did not
pay expenses. This year an effort
will be made to induce more of the
members to attend. Those in charge
realize that the camp comes at a
time when farmers can hardly dis-
pense with the help of their boys
for a week, and for this reason this
year’s camp will probably be arrang-
ed for only two or three days.
As now proposed there will be a
meeting of the boys each day, at
which time there will be brief talks
on various topics in which the young
farmers are interested. In addition
there will be a livestock judging
Vocational boys will conduct a
project contest in the educational
building. It will be conducted ac-
cording to the rules of the Stafe
project contest held each year in Har-
risburg, in connection with the State
farm products show. Any boy car-
rying an agricultural project wihch
meets the State requirements can
enter. The Grange Association has
set aside a sum of money which will
be apportioned in attractive prizes
for the winners.
All boys who feel certain they will
be able to attend the camp this year
should communicate with W. S. Jef-
ries, at the court house, Bellefonte,
on or before July 1st.

COULD YOU QUALIFY
AS AN AVIATOR?
Young men and women ambitious
to pilot an airplane after the man-
ner of a Lindbergh or an Earhart
should first try standing on one foot
with their eyes closed for the brief
space of fifteen seconds.
If this seemingly simple stunt can
be successfully performed there re-
mains a chance that the ambition
can be achieved—if the standee top-
ples, he or she can remain air-mind-
ed, but only with both feet on the
This ‘“sense-of-balance” test is on-
ly one of a series the prospective
flier must undergo before even set-
ting foot in an airplane as a student
flier. Others may be more severe,
but few weed out as many would-be
pilots as the one-foot-eyes-closed
Examination of Philadelphians anx-
jous to become pilots is made in
this district by Dr. Edward H. Bed-
rossian, a flight surgeon in the
Medical Reserve Corps and whose
office is at 600 Central Medical
Building at 18th and Chesnut streets.
Many Philadelphians of both sexes
and of all ages come to Dr. Bedros-
sian’s office high in their hopes of
piloting an airplane through the blue
skies and leave with heavy hearts
knowing they will never feel the
thrill of sending a plane through its
A few of the rejected candidates,
examined under the rulings and tests
prescribed by the Department of
Commerce, actually have left his of-
fice with tears welling in their eyes,
Dr. Bedrossian said.
Another preliminary to taking the
controls of anything from a sports
biplane to a trimotered transport is
grasping two strings and trying to
“line up” two upright sticks, which
in actual flying might represent
telephone poles, hangar roofs or
A scale gives the score and plac-
ing the two sticks side by side repre-
sents perfect judgment of distance
on the part of the candidate.
Wearing glasses is not necessarily
a bar ¢o prospective aviators, Dr.
Bedrossian explained. However, all
these tests become increasingly rigid
ed without the aid of spectacles, and
vision tests must be made and pass-
according to which of the five grades
of pilots is being examined.
The first group is the student, the
second the private pilot, then the in-
dustrial flier, limited commercial and
finally transport pilot. Even success-
ful pilots of the latter two groups
must report to Dr. Bedrossian for a
thorough examination every six
months, and often men who have
had many hours of flying are
“grounded” by the examiner until
their nerves become normal or until
they otherwise become fit to fly mail
cargoes and passengers.
Applicants get a thorough eye ex-
amination, which includes tests for
color-blindness, muscle-balance and
judgment of distance. In addition,
they undergo examination of the
nose and throat. The heart tests are
important, and also the examination
of lungs, joints, bones and glands.
REPORT RECORD NUMBER OF
STATE SUICIDES IN 1928.
The suicide rate in Pennsylvania
was higher in 1928 than in any year
since 1915, while the homicide rate
was the lowest since 1915 according
to figures just released by the bu-
reau of vital statistics.
In the year, 1255 persons in Penn-
sylvania ended their own lives as
compared with 1182 suicides in 1927.
This is the greatest number of sul-
cides ever recorded in one year in
the State although the rate is not so
high as in some of the earlier years
of State registration. Of the suicides
in 1928, 1005 were males and 250 fe-
males, while 1219 were white and 36
colored. Even in proportion to popu-
lation there were fewer suicides
among the white people of the State.
There were more suicides between
the ages of 45 and 54 than in any
other ten year age group, but the
suicide rate was highest between
the ages of 65 and 75. There were
five suicides under the age of 15,
three boys and two girls.
There were 534 homicides in Penn-
sylvania as compared with 570 in
1927. The largest number on record
was 634 in 1923. Of the victims of
homicide 416 were males and 118
females. Classified by color 373 were
white and 161 colored. Assuming
that four per cent of the population
of the State are colored these figures
are equivalent to a homicide rate in
the colored population ten times
that in the white population.
- More than one-half of all victims
of homicide are between the ages of
30 and 44 with the medium age as
35. There was only one case of in-
fanticide reported although there
were six victims under the age of

PASS AUTO EXAMS.
A summary of the reports of the
examining unit of the State High-
way Patrol for persons exam-
ined for drivers’ licenses of whom
18,071 passed and 6227 failed.
In connection with these examina-
tions it was necessary to correct the
position of registration plates on
2394 cars in which applicants pre-
sented themselves and to have or
corrected on 4069 cars.
Registrar Benjamin G. Eynon, of
the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, said:
“The examining units of the
Highway Patrol are performing val-
uable work on compelling car own-
ers to display their license plates so
that they are clear and visible and
also in correcting defective head-
light equipment. The deefcts found
by the examiner demonstrate be-
yond a doubt, that Pennsylvania
still has quite a few car owners who
are lax or negligent in complying
with the equipment provisions of the
motor vehicle code.”

Most important in this theory of

— Paris reports there is a conspir-

Tight bodices make necessary long,
uncomfortable corsets which made
our great grand-mothers so unhappy,

cherish their freedom should orga-

proposed reforms come from those
houses in Paris directed by men, the
women designers are more lenient,
probably because they realize their
own liberty is at stake.
— While there is no doubt that the
short, tight Dbodices and long
sweeping skirts are a graceful and
charming mode, if they revive the
constrict ng corsets of old their
charm will be greatly diminished.

enhanced when the waist is unham-
