POLICE NAB CHECK KITER
IN BELLEFONTE FRIDAY.
Three men were arrested in Belle-
fonte, last Friday, by sheriff Harry
Dunlap and chief of police Harry
Dukeman, for attempting to pass
worthless checks. The men were
Harry Ritter, Harold Wright and Wil-
liam Griffith, of Lewistown. They
came to Bellefonte by automobile
and in the short time they were here
before being picked up visited at
least five places, the First Nationa)
bank, John Gross’ grocery store, Sim,
the Clothier, Harold Cowher and
They were arrested at the latter
place. Police investigation disclosed
the fact that Ritter was the only
one of the three who made any at-
tempt to pass checks, and as there
was nothing on which to hold the oth-
er two men they were discharged af-
ter spending several hours in the Cen-
tre county jail. The sheriff of Mif-
flin county was notified of the arrest
and as Ritter was also wanted over
there for passing worthless checks he
came over and took him back to
Lewistown. It is also reported that
he is wanted in Clinton county for

WHAT ARE WE DOING
FOR CRIPPLED CHILDREN.
The eighth convention of the Inter-
national Society for Crippled Chil-
dren held in our own county this
spring revealed the unprecedented
work which is being carried out in
the interest of cripples in an ever in-
creasing number of States and coun-
tries. Work is being done by the Ro-
tarians, Lions, Kiwanians, Red Cross
Societies, Elks, Masons, Shrine and
other lodges, Parent-Teacher Associa-
tions and Women’s Federation of
clubs. Canada is attacking the prob-
lem with spirit. The work has devel-
oped rapidly in the Central European
countries. Norway has a system of
devoting one national holiday a year
to the crippled children’s work. On
this day throughout the country, na-
tional sports and games are played
and the proceeds devoted to crippled
On the subject of the “Crippled
Child and the Spirit of America” one
speaker stressed the fact that the
wide-spread, growing movement for
the rehabilitation of crippled children,
which has taken possession of our
minds and hearts must, if it is to real-
ize all that it hopes to accomplish
for them, be founded on some funda-
mental social philosophy and for this
philosophy he quoted from one of
President Hoover's addresses; “The
social force in which I am interested
springs from one source of human
progress—that each individual shall
be given the chance and stimulation
for development of the best with
which he has been endowed in heart
and mind; this is the sole source of
progress; it is American individual-
For the crippled child this means
giving it the best possible approach
to the equality of opportunity of the
normal child, as complete equality of
opportunity for a certain proportion
of the crippled children is unattain-
able. This means remedying, or
remedying as far as possible, the phys:
ical defect, educating the child, es-
pecially vocationally, and lastly, find-
ing for the child a position in tHe
kind of work for which he is fitted
and under the employment of a per-
son on whose sympathetic interest he
To carry out this program the firs!
necessary step is the location of the
crippled children and this means in-
terest and effort from the public
spirited citizens and from the service
clubs of the communities.
In Centre and Clearfield counties
the program for the carrying on of
the crippledchildren’s work will ne-
cessitate the redoubling of efforts to
locate and bring in as many children
who need care as possible, since the
lowered appropriation for the crip
pled children’s work will necessitate
lengthening the intervals between
the clinics. The officers of the Cen
tre-Clearfield Crippled Children’s so-
ciety earnestly solicit the interest and
cooperation of the citizens of the
community in forwarding the work.
RECLAIMING BARREN SOIL
IN SNOW SHOE TOWNSHIP.
Today July 19th, the farmers from
Clearfield and western Centre coun-
ties will visit the soil fertility and
pasture plots at the Snow Shoe ex-
periment station. Specialists from
State College will be on the ground
to explain the treatments which the
plots have received and the crops se-
cured, and to discuss farmer's fertil-
ity problems in an informal manner.
One series of plots is now in corn,
another in pasture, and two in clover.
The clover crop will be cut and
weighed and left on the plots in cocks
until after the 19th.
These experiments were started in
1916 on a field which is typical of
Clearfield county soil, but which was
so poor that no one had attempted to
farm it for many years. The object
of the experiment was to see how best
this land could be brought back to
the profitable production of pasture
grass and farm crops. Lime alone
and in combination with different fer-
tilizers and moderate amounts of
manure was applied. After the first
crop of clover, the plots receiving
lime, 400 pounds of superphosphate
(acid phosphate) and 100 pounds of
muriate of potash, produced 37 bush-
els of shelled corn per acre and 38
bushels of oats. While the unfertil-
ized and unlimed plots produced only
2.3 bushels of corn per acre and 5
bushels of oats. Three complete four-
year rotations of corn, oats, wheat
and clover have been grown since the
experiment was started.
FORMER FILLMORE BOY
TO TEACH AERONAUTICS
Right in line with its advanced
standing in having beaten many large
cities to the goal of having a modern
airport Centre county has started
furnishing qualified instructors for
colleges that have added aeronautics
to their curriculum.
Sherman Lutz, a son of Charles E.
Lutz, of Fillmore, has been made in-
structor in the mechanic’s division of
the staff at Beckley college, Harris-
ourg, which institution announces the
inauguration of a regular two-year
course in aeronautics. He will be
chief of the division.
Mr. Lutz has been at the Gettys-
burg airport for the last year and
was associated with the Berliner Air-
craft Corporation at Alexandria, Va.,
and with the National Air Transport.

BUCK DEER ONLY WILL BE
LEGAL KILL THIS YEAR.
At a meeting of the State Game
Commission, last week, it was decid-
ed to make buck deer the legal game
this year, instead of does, and hunt-
ers will threfore have to confine
themselves to the male of the species
with two well defined prongs on each
antler; that is if they can find any to
kill. The commission also decided to
restore the six days a week hunting
season owing to the many protests
filed last year against the three days
a week plan, which was not only un-
popular but proved a real hardship
on hunting parties going out on

existing game preserves was an-
nounced at the close of the all-day
session. The purchase price was

acquire 159 more acres in Limerick
township, Montgomery county, next
to the John S. Fisher game farm.
WELL KNOWN YOUNG LADY
MEETS TRAGIC DEATH.
Miss Lilly May Johnson, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. B. Johnson, of
‘Beaver Falls, was killed in an auto-
mobile accident near that place on
Sunday afternoon, July 7.
Both of her parents are natives of
Bellefonte and resided here until the
time of their going to Beaver Falls.
She is a niece of Miss Emma Jayne
Aikens, formerly of Bellefonte, but
now living in Cleveland.
The tragedy occurred on the El-
wood City—New Castle road, near
the Lawrence county poor home. It
had rained and the road was slippery

turn near the Lawrence county home

C. Johnston, of Elwood City, from
internal injuries when he was crush:
ad by the steering wheel. The oth-
ers, Miss Jean Johnston, of Rochester
and Ray Johns, of New Castle, were
only shocked and bruised. They were
occupying the rumble seat.
While three of the young people
bore the same name they were no
relation to one another.
Miss Johnson is survived by her
parents, two brothers, John T. Johns:
ton, of Beaver Falls, and George B.
Johnson, of West Bridgewater; and
three sisters, Mrs. Harden Green, of
Cannonsburg, Margaret A. Johnsor
and Elizabeth Johnson at home.
Interment was made at Beaver
Falls last Wednesday.
A PRACTICAL SUGGESTION
FOR sIOME MERCHANTS.
“Business Builders,” a new publica-
tion to be issued monthly by the
West Penn Power Co., makes a sug-
gestion to home merchants that
seems to us to be freighted with po
The idea is not original with “Busi:
ness Builders.” It has been in appli-
cation out in Sheridan, Wyoming, and
because it is getting results there the
West Penn Power organ suggests its
use generally as helpful in keeping
the good will of the home buyers.
It is a thrift plan sponsored by a
combination of merchants who give
29, of the amount of every cash pur-
chase a customer makes to the chil-
dren of the customer. It is given in
the form of a “Percentage Scrip’
which is good only for deposit at @
local bank, where a child holding cer-
tificates aggregating a stated amount
can open a cumulative, interest bear
ing account. This account can be
added to as more “Percentage Scrips’
are received at the stores.
Not until the child has reached the
age of fifteen years can it draw on or
withdraw the entire account.
It is an interesting suggestion be
cause it has so many possibilities. It
has a sequence that certainly en-
courages thrift, stimulates a disposi-
tion to buy at a store issuing the
“Scrip” and holds the trade there be
cause the growth of the little bank
account becomes a matter of family
pride and concern.

BRADFORD MAN TO BE
SUPERVISOR OF CENSUS.
It is reported that Congressman
J. Mitchell Chase has recommended
the appointment of William Freemy-
er, of Bradford, McKean county, as
supervisor of census for the Twenty-
third congressional district, compos-
ed of the counties of Centre, Clear-
field, Cameron and McKean, and it
is expected that his official appoint-
ment will be made in the near future.
It is quite likely that the supervisor's
headquarters will be established in
DuBois, as it is more centrally locat-
ed in the district.
The law provides for a census taker
in each election district, which will
mean sixty-seven in Centre county.
Already, it is said, there are quite a
number of anxious ones in Centre
county, and it is quite likely that as
soon as Mr. Freemyer has been of-
ficially appointed and has opened
headquarters he will be besieged with
letters from applicants, even though
the start on taking the census will
not be until April 1st, 1930.
