West Penn Power to Test Bellefonte
Water System for Leaks.
Fire marshall John J. Bower ap-
peared before borough council, at
the regular meeting on Monday
evening, and, after stating that the
present fire alarm is badly in need of
repairs, and that it will probably
cost $75.00 or more to put it in con-
dition to operate successfully, sug-
gested that it would probably be
wiser to install a new alarm sys-
tem, one on which the location of
the fire could be given by definitely
arranged signals. He stated that
one of the best that he has been
able to locate is the “Codewell sys-
tem,” manufactured by the Game-
well Fire Alarm Co., of Massachu-
setts. On it alarms can be sounded
and signals given. The cost of the
System is approximately $1500, de-
livered in Bellefonte, installation to
be made at the borough expense.
The matter was referred to the Fire
and Police committee.
A committee of the Undine Fire
company, with George Carpeneto as
spokesman, appeared before coun-
cil to express their thanks for the
borough’s assistance in the purchase
of their new quadruple combination.
They feel sure that it will be a
great aid at any fire and will also
be a big factor in securing a re-
duction in fire insurance rates.
Walter Reichert, of Burnside
street, and Thomas Roberts, of Wil-
son street, were both before council
appealing for water. Mr. Reichert’s
house is located on an unopened por-
tin of Burnside street where he
cannot be reached without crossing
private property, while Mr. Roberts is
out of the borough. The matter
was referred to the Street and
Water committees. .
Superintendent Walter T. McCor-
mick and R. P. Lightner, of the
West Penn Power company, with
D. C. Morrow and H. E. Beckwith,
expert water engineers, appeared
before council and submitted a
lengthily written proposition which
they maintained would help solve
the high cost of pumping water in
Bellefonte. The proposition was
not read in open council but a
copy furnished each councilman to
read and digest. Mr. Morrow, how-
ever, in addressing council, stated
that ne believed the big trouble here |

to figures furnished him by the wa-
ter department Bellefonte’s per
capita consumption of water is well
onto 400 gallons daily, which is
the largest of any town or city in
the United States. He expressed
the belief that it is impossible for
the people of Bellefonte to use that
much water, and the only possible
solution is leakage. He then stated
that the West Ponn Power company
will bear the expense of a few days
preliminary survey to determine if
there are any leaks of consequence
providing, that if the survey shows
decided leakage the borough will
then bear the expense of a complete
survey and also the repairs neces-
sary to stop the leaks. The entire
cost of such a survey will be $1500,
and if council decides to have one
made the amount to be paid by the
West Penn for the preliminary work
will be deducted from the above
sum. Mr. Beckwith explained in de-
tail how such surveys are made and
gave figures to show what they
have accomplished in other towns.
Such surveys have been made in
Altoona, Tyrone, Miiton and various
other towns and cities in Pennsyl-
vania. After considerable discussion
the matter was referred to the
Water committee with power.
The Street committee reported
numerous repairs and also present-
ed a check of the West Penn Power |
Co., for $144.00, being a refund on
account of one light removed from

The Street committee also stated
that superintendent W. T. McCor-
mick requests any resident of Belle-
fonte to notify the West Penn
Power Co., promptly on the discov-
ery of any street light being off and
it will be repaired at once.

———A test of the reservoir has
béén made in order to determine
whether there are leaks in it that
might acount for the abnormal
amount of water being pumped in
Bellefonte daily. During a four hour
period, with all outlet valves closed |
tight and i.spected for seepage the |
reservoir lost so little as to eliminate
it as a factor of any great conse-
quence in the suspected water loss.
Now that that has been settled the
water superintendent is going to
turn his attention to t"- determina-
tion of whether the pumps are really
delivering as many gallons of v.ater
into the mains and reservoir as their
ratings represent them to be doing.
If they are doing what they are sup-
posed to be doing there are only two
other guesses possible: Either the
mains are leaking badly or Bellefonte
is actually using the water.

Pine Grove Mills had a conflagra-
tion Tuesday night that, had it not
been for the fact that everything was
soaking wet because of an all day
rain, might have destroyed most of
the town.
About 11:30 fire was discovered in
the flouring mill of E. H. Auman in
that place and as it was already be-
yond control the entire building went
up in flames. The pine logs with
which it was framed in 1779 were
dry as tinder and made a raging
fire. High winds swept the flames
and sparks in every direction spread-
ing such alarm that State College
and Tyrone fire departments were
appealed to for gid. Both responded,”
but they could do nothing but pro-
tect adjacent buildings. The College
firemen were on the scene first and
did such splendid work that they had
the situation well in hand when the
Tyrone fire fighters arrived. The
Martz store, across the street, and
the homes of Elmer Musser and Miss
Sallie Barr were afire several times.
The new Tydol filling station re-
cently erected beside the mill property
by John Krumrine, of State College,
was wiped completely off the land-
Fortunately for the owner of the
mill farmers had not started hauling
in their grain so that it was not as

The annual meeting of the Order
of the Eastern Star, District No. 10,
held in the auditorium at Hecla park,
last Friday, was a success in every
particular. In the neighborhood of
six hundred representatives, members
of the nine chapters in the district
and visitors from all over the State,
with one from Nebraska, were pres-
ent and witnessed the exemplification
of the degrees of the order to a class
of twelve candidates.
The meeting was under the direc-
tion of Mrs. Daisy B. Henderson, of
Bellefonte, district deputy of District

grand matron, of Pennsylvania, while
other visitors included Mrs. Adeline
W. Barnes, of Pittsburgh, grand sec-
‘retary and past grand matron; Lee
Wiser, Wilkinsburg, District No.
tron; Mrs. Mary B. Stouch, grand
representative of Porto Rico, and the

Bellefonte chapter, a hand painted
ibowl and was given an honorary

For real nerve-racking, high-ten-
sion thrills the football game be-
tween Bellefonte High and Windber
High, on Hughes field, Saturday
afternoon, was a record breaker.
Bellefonte, having apparently lost
the game through two costly fum-
bles, took an unexpected rally in the
final three minutes of play and
scored two ‘touchdowns, winning the
game by the score of 26 to 18.
Windber, ‘a much - heavier
than Bellefonte, and up until last
Saturday undefeated, came here
touted by all football experts as a
sure and easy winner, but the first
few minutes of play demonstrated
the fact that Bellefonte had the
superior team. On line plunging
the Bellefonte backs, or to be more
exact fullback Confer rarely failed
to make good gains. Bellefonte
scored the first touchdown in the
first period but Kelleher failed to
kick the goal. In the second period
Marron, of Windber, caught a Belle-
fonte punt and evading the entire
Bellefonte team ran 55 yards for a
touchdown. In the third period
Gates, Windber’s quarterback, in-
tercepted a forward pass and ran
40 yards for a touchdown. In the
fourth period Confer, who scored
Bellefonte’s first touchdown, again
plunged over the line and Kelleher
kicking the goal put Bellefonte one
point to the good.
When the period was about half
over Morran, of Windber, snaked
down a forward pass and scored an-
other touchdown, but again the goal
was missed. The score then stood
18 to 13 in favor of Windber, with
only about four minutes to play.
But Bellefonte was still full of fight
and taking Windber’s kickoff they
carried the ball down the field with
a sucession of line plunges and for-
ward passes that literally swept the
visitors off their feet and at the
thirty yard line Kelly threw a for-
ward pass to Confer who got around
the Windber field and scored his
third sucessive touchdown. Kelleher
missed the goal, but the score was
then 19 to 18 in favor of Bellefonte
and one minute to play.
Bellefonte kicked to Windber and
the man who caught the ball was
downed in his tracks on Windber's
30 yard line. The only hope the
latter had to score was on a for-
ward pass and the attempt was
made on the first play but out of
Bellefonte'’s khaki-clad warriors
swooped the lithe figure of Kelleher
who jumped in the air, intercepted
the pass just as the Windber man
was reaching for it, and without
a Windber player between him and
the goal line ran thirty yards for
another touchdown. Just as the ball
was carried back onto the field the
whistle blew for the end of the
,game and Bellefonte was allowed
the extra point for the goal from
touchdown, making the score 26 to
18 in favor of Bellefonte.
Summarizing Bellefonte made 20
first downs to 8 for the visitors.
Bellefonte completed 8 forward
passes for a total 121 yards to Win-
ber’s 4 passes for 97 yards. Confer
was the big ground gainer for Belle-
fonte, but every man on the team
played a splendid game. The stars
for Windber were Fagan, Marron
and Gates. Windber’s interference
was perfected to a higher degree than
that of Bellefonte, and was mainly be-
cause of. this fact that she made
her .three touchdowns. egg

specified a good supply of sausages and
pancakes which, of course, he got.
One week from today will mark
the opening of the hunting season for
small game, namely, squirrel, rabbits
and wild turkey. Ruffed grouse,
more commonly known as pheasant,
are protected this year and cannot
be killed legally. The season for
bear will not open until November
10th, or to be exact the 11th, as the
10th is Sunday.
A number of flocks of wild turkeys
have been seen in various sections of
the county, but they are not plentiful
enough to afford good sport, although
a nice turkey is a prize worth getting
by any hunter. As to squirrel, they
have not been plentiful in this sec-
tion of the State for some years and
the hunter who is able to find enough
to make a respectable game bag is
a lucky individual.
Rabbits are reported very plentiful,
not only in the woodlands but on
farms where they can find enough
cover in which to hide. These will
probably afford he major part of the
sport during the early part of the
As stated above, bear are reported
as unusually plentiful, and quite a
number of hunters are living in an-
ticipation of the opening day. To
date approximately 2550 hunters’ li.
censes have been granted in Centre
county and if half of the holders go
out on the opening day, and have ev-
en ordinary luck, they will make a
big hole in the game population.
