    “The Bellefontian,” the in-
teresting bimonthly publication of
the students of the Bellefonte High
we take the following ac-
count of the foot ball game here
last Saturday, between Tyrone and
Bellefonte. The result of the game
was Bellefonte 13, Tyrone 0.
. Saturday afternoon on the Hughes
field, Bellefonte High school ran
rough-shod over their ancient “jinx,”
For the first time in the last sev-
en years that Bellefonte High school
has played Tyrone she was able to
come off the old gridiron with the
bacon, and a joyful feeling.
The “Red and White” warriors
came back to defeat their old oppon-
ents, after taking a beating at the
hands of Huntingdon on the preced-
ing Saturday.
The pulp from the “paper-mill”
town tried to stage a comeback in the
final quarter but were held at bay
by the “Red and White Cheetahs.”
As usual, Sammy Confer played a
brilliant game, and Kelley showed
some fine playing, but “Old Ironsides”
Shope ran with the best of them.
The new right side of the line, con-
sisting of Tom Fisher playing guard,
Keeler at tackle, and Gettig on the
end did some beautiful work, hoth
offensively and defensively.
The first quarter B. H. S. received
the kick-off, “Sammy” toting the
old pill back about 40 yards before
he was downed; then Kelley, Shope,
and “Sammy” started working on
the “Orange and Black” line for re-
peated gains. “Sam” took the ball
through left tackle for the rirst
touchdown as the quarter ended with
the score 6-0 in favor of the “Red
and White Cheetahs” and the first
downs stood 7-2 in our favor. In
the second quarter the “Cheetahs”
kept slashing the line of “Orange
and Black” back toward their own
goal. Sam made first downs, hitting
off tackle, Kelley made good yardage
through the center and Shope ran
the ends for consecutive gains until
the ball was advanced close enough
to the Tyrone goal line to let “Max”
rip their line for the needed ground
and our second and final touchdown.
A pass, Kelley to Shope, gave us the
extra point. In this quarter the
“Red and White” had 5 first-downs
to Tyrone’s ome, and 13 points to
Tyrone’s 0.
B. H. S. received the kickoff as
the second-half began, and contin-
ued to make yards and first downs,
but Tyrone held the snarling “Chee-
tahs” better in this quarter than in
any quarter of the game. The “Red
and White” could muster no more
than three first-downs to Tyrone’s
one. The score remained 13-0 in
our favor. In the fourth quarter the
«Red and White” got within strik-
ing distance of their opponent’s
goal but penalties set the ball back
into deeper territory. This quarter
also with the score still
standing 13-0 in favor of our fight-
ing team and first-downs stood 21-6
in our favor.
- Derr played well for the “Orange
and Black.” Friday and Blowers al-
so played good ball
The team should have a “loud
hand” after defeating our “Jonah”
and the students of B. H. S. can be
praised for standing back of their
colors after the beating we received
at the hands of the Huntingdon
“Wildcats” they tore the “Cheetah,”
but not enough to break his spirit.
We are looking forward to Lewis-
town on Armistice Day. We took
plenty of beatings from Lewistown
in basketball, but do you think they
can make us “bite the turf” on the
gridiron? We shall see.

It all depends upon how you say it.
There was once a clergyman by the
mame of Twitchel. In the pulpit he
maintained a gravity of manner and
expression, but out of the pulpit was a
regular fellow. Occasionally he would.
if the emergency required, introduce
something queer in a sermon for the
sake of arousing the attention of the
One Sunday, seeing that his hearers
were becoming sleepy, he paused in his
sermon and said: “Brethren, you
haven't any idea of the sufferings of
our missionaries in the new settle
ments, on account of the mosquitoes
The mosquitoes in some of these
regions are enormous. A great many
of them would weigh a pound, and
they will get on the logs and bark
when the missionaries are going along.’
By ‘this time all ears and eyes were
open and he proceeded to finish his
discourse. The next day one of the
church members called him to account
tor telling lies in the pulpit.
“There never was a mosquito that
weighed a pound,” he said.
“But,” replied the minister, “1 didn
say one of them would weigh a pound;
1 said a great many, and I think a mil
lion of them vould.”
“But you said that they barked ai
the missionaries.”

Opossum’s Pouch
The opossulu is the only American
animal that belongs to the class of
marsupials or pouched animais. There
are usually two litters a year and
from five to fourteen to a litter. Ac-
cording to the investigations of Dr.
Carl Hartman of the University of
Texas, an authority on the subject,
the young are born undeveloped or
in embryo form and crawl by their
own efforts into the pouch of the
mother. There they remain for 65 to
75 days, never leaving the pouch and
depending entirely upon the mother
Even after they are able to provide
for themselves and leave the pouch,
they may return there or may attach
themselves to the mother’s hair or
tail, :

President Hoover,
enrolls in the annual Roll Call of the society,
who is also president of the American Red Cross
which occurs from Armisties
Day tc Thanksgiving Day, November 11 to 28.
Leading churchmen of the na-
tion have joined in asking public
support of the annual Roll Call of
the American Red Cross. Two dis
tinguished leaders who have seul
messages to their congregations
all over the country are quoted, as
follows: 3

Red Cross membership until we

Michael J. Curley, Archbishop of
Baltimore. “lI would like to see

it because of the spiritual reaction
{ visualize in our millions of con
tributing members.”
“As president of the Federal
Council of the Churches of Christ
in America, | bespeak for the Roll
Call of the American Red Cross the
fullest cooperation of all the
churches in the constituency of the
Council,” writes Francis J. Mc
Connell, president of the Federal

Service to World War veterans in
hospital, for able-bodied veterans, and
for dependent families of both called
for expenditures of $738,000 by the
American Red Cross during the year
just ended. In addition, Red Cross
Chapters spent $1,963,000 in veteran
relief, and also for men still in service.
Although eleven years have passed
since the Armistice, there remain
25,600 disabled and sick veterans of
the World War in hospitals, and the
peak of the number who will require
hospitalization is not expected by
Veterans Bureau authorities ‘to be
reached until 1947. For these men,
the Red Cross must continue its serv-
ice of providing recreation and com-
forts, according to James L. Fieser
vice chairman of the Red Cross.
“Under its Charter from Congress,
the Red Cross is required to maintain
service for veterans of wars and for
the men still in the service,” Mr.
Fieser said. “The funds for this work
come from the annual roll call mem-
bership fees. ‘In addition to the sum
spent in maintaining contact with the
veterans, the Red Cross expended
| $308,000 in its service to the men still
{n the regular Army, Navy and Marine
Corps. The society and a majority of
its 3,500 chapters handle claims for
these men for insurance, compensation
and other benefits they are entitled to
under the law, and also where neces-
sary arranges to provide for depep-
dents of the men.
“Red Cross workers are maintained
in forty-eight Veterans Bureau Hos-
pitals, as well as in all regular Army
and Navy hospitals, whose duty it is
to supervise recreational facilities for
the patients, and to provide small com:
forts. In the Army and Navy Hos
pitals, the workers also do social serv
ice for the patients. These tasks alsc
are performed at all Army Posts and
Navy Ports by Red Cross workers, and
in addition Red Cross representatives
to handle claims are established at the
majority of Veterans Bureau regiona:
offices.” : :

Recalling the days of the World
War, many women still make pajamas
and other hospital garments, wmany
knit sweaters, and more than 2,500,
000 surgical dressings were rolled by
volunteer workers for the American
Red Cross Chapters all over the na
tion, in the year just closed.
The hospital garments are given to
¢eterans and the surgical dressings go
to civilian or Veterans’ Bureau hos
pitals, or wherever needed. Many
Chapters also maintain well stocked
closets of surgical dressings and gar
ments, in order to be prepared should
a disaster strike their communities.
Volunteer workers make children’s
glothing and layettes which are dis-
tributed in time of major catas-
tpophes. The Motor Corps of Red
Cross women and the Canteen Serve
ice, also first created during the World
War, still are maintained by maay
Red Cross Chapters. Last year the
various Motor Corps, some with am:
pulances, answered about 30,000 calls,
cand the Canteens - served more than
20,000 persons. They were especially
active where floods or forest fires or
other catastrophes called for feeding
refugees or firemen engaged in active’
work fighting disaster.
Another activity of women volun
teers is that of filling Christmas bags
—small cretonne ditty bags—to send
to soldiers and sailors who are sta-
tioned at posts or ports abroad. More
than 40,000 of these are sent each
year for distribution to the Americans
at Christmas time.
«invariably it is the masses of the
people which suffer most when disas-
erg occur,” stated William Green,
president of the American Federatiop
»f Labor, recently.
“Because they suffer most and be
.ause of their helplessness, the minis
trations of the Red Cross organization
take on added significance and impor
tance. No doubt many lives among
these - particular groups are saved
through the prompt service which thir
_Jrganization gives.
“Because the American Federation
,¢ Labor appreciates this fact, we have
supplemented the appeal of the Ameri
can Red Cross at each Roll Call period
for memberships from the great mass
of working men and women and their
tamilies. :
“The continued service 0. the Am
.can Federation of Labor in this most
humane and unselfish work will be
most cheerfully rendered.”
