Mr. Cunningham Submits Figures
Showing 500,000 Gallons Given
- Away Daily
Most of Monday evening's session
of borough council was taken up
with a discussion of the water situa-
tion in Bellefonte which followed a
voluminous report submitted by Mr.
Cunningham chairman of the water
committee. The water question in
Bellefonte has been one of consider-
able concern for some years, not be-
cause of any scarcity of it but be-
cause of the continual increase in
the cost of pumping. During the
fifteen years that he has served as
a member of borough council Mr.
Cunningham has been closely <iden-
tified with the water department and
undoubtedly knows more about it
than any man in the town. It was
on the recommendation of the Water
committee, of which he is chairman,
that the, Gamble mill property was
purchased so as to give the borough
the water power as a means of of-
fering a cheaper means of pumping.
At the time it was the idea of the
committee to install water wheels
and electric generators and use the
electric pumps now on hand at the
spring pumping station, but the es-
timated cost of installation, $25,000,
seemed prohibitive at this time.
In the meantime the West Penn
Power Co., which is now furnishing
the electric current for pumping the
water, started an investigation of
its own to determine if there is any
way by which the cost of pumping
might be reduced. At the last meet-
ing of council a report was submit-
ted by D. C. Morrow, water engineer
for the American Water Co., in
‘which he asserted that Bellefonte is
pumping a million of gallons of wa-
ter more a day than it should, and
he ascribed it to leakage in the res-
ervoir and pipes. Mr. Morrow also
advised a searching test of the
mains for leaks by the Pitometer
company, which would cost the bor-
ough $1500. The West Penn, how-
ever, offered to make a preliminary
test at its own expense to determine
if there is leakage, if the borough
gives its approval.
Since the last meeting of council
Mr. Cunningham and water superin-
tendent J. D. Seibert have also made
an investigation, and they found a
small leagage at the reservoir, but
they also found that the borough is
actually pumping half a million gal-
lons of water daily for which it
gets no returns in dollars and cents.
This big amount of water is account-
ed for in free service to. all the
schools and churches in Bellefonte,
the Y. M. C. A., Centre County hos-
pital, borough home, free use of hose
at private homes, etc.
Mr. Cunningham's report was lis-
tened to with considerable interest
by every member. of council and at
its conclusion he reported that he
had received an estimate from the
Worthington Pump Co., for the in-
stallation of a water
pump of 1500 gallons a minute ca-
pacity at the Gamble mill property
at a total appromimate cost of $10,-
000. The installation of such a
pump, in connection with the two
hydraulic pumps now in use, will
furnish an adequate service for Belle-
fonte, and will not require any addi-
tional help to maintain or operate.
Mr. Cunningham recommended that
such a pump be installed. Mr. Mig-
not made a motion that the commit-
tee be empowered to ask for bids for
such. installation.
Mr. Cobb suggested that in view
the fact that the West Penn
Power Co. had very generously, :of-
fered to make a preliminary survey
for leakage that it would only be
fair to apprise them of Mr. Cunning-
ham's report and ask them if they
still thought it advisable to make
such a survey.

committee reported the collection of
$135.27 on water duplicates

-Harold William Lockard, a former
resident of Coleville but for some
years past living at Ford City, in
Armstrong county, was accidentally
killed by his own gun about four
o'clock on Saturday afternoon. He
had been out hunting with a party
of. friends and on his way home
stopped at a neighbor's barn for a
little talk. He stood his gun on the
doorsill of the barn, holding the bar-
rel in his hand. The gun slipped and
the trigger catching on the doorsill
discharged the gun. The shot struck
Lockard on the right jaw, tearing
away the right side of his face and
head, killing him instantly.
kard was born at Coleville and
was 29 years and 4 months old. He
has lived at Ford City a number of
years and was well known and high-
ly esteemed. He was a member of
the First Baptist church, of that
city, a member of the borough
council, Silver lodge Knights of
Pythias and the Order of Independ-
ent Americans. He is survived by
his wife and one daughter, Alice.
Also his mother, Mrs. Wash Smith,
living at Pleasant Gap, and two sis-
ters, Mrs. Snyder Stover, of Cole-
ville. and Mrs. Charles Emenhizer,
of Flemington.
"The Snyder Stover family motored
to Ford City for the funeral which
was held on Tuesday afternoon, bur-
ial being made at Ford City.
Conditions are

but just because

probably paral-
of the county,
a register has
of visitors to Gray's
cemetery, the facts concerning it
can be regarded as authentic and
will reveal the surprising number of
people who annually visit the last
resting places of their loved ones.
Of course interest in Gray's has
been quickened during the. past few
years because it has been beauti-
fied so and maintained in such per-
fect condition. It is really one of
the best kept country cemeteries we
know of, due in no small measure
. to the interest shown in it by the
secretary of the Association, Mr.
Thomas Huey. .
Scarcely a day goes by that
some visitor or visitors are not
seen wandering about in this peace-
ful God’s Acre. Aside from those
who have gathered ' there until in-
terments are being made the regis-
ter shows hundreds of . visitors. They
come from all parts of the country.
In the register we find names of
people from Nebraska, Michigan,
Ohio, Florida, Delaware, Wisconsin,
Maryland, California, and several
other States; all of which goes to
show how little the world is after
all. For those people all came back
because there is some one they
know, ‘someone whose memory is
still dear to them, living up in the
. cemetery in Half Moon valley.

Only a Few Wild Turkeys Shot On
First Day of the Hunting
Rabbits and ringneck pheasants
formed the major part of the spoils
bagged by primitive man in his lust
to kill on the opening day of the
hunting season, last Friday, though
a few wild turkeys and squirrels
were brought in asa proper leaven- |
ing of the game bag.
~ The prize turkey of the day, so
far as reports are available, was
shot by David Chambers, Jr.
Snow Shoe, up near Julian. It wasa
hen and weighed 18 pounds. Cham-
bers and James Caldwell, of Belle-
fonte, were hunting together and
Jimmie bagged a 12-pounder. Five
more turkeys were killed in that
section but the names of the lucky
hunters could not be obtained. In
this connection it might be stated
that along during the . summer a
flock of twenty-seven turkeys were
seen in that section on various oc-
casions. On Wednesday of last
week a flock, presumably the same,
was seen but then there were only
seventeen in it. With seven killed
last Friday only ten would be left.
Two Pleasant Gap hunters got
turkeys on Nittany mountain, Wil-
liam Bilger and Jared Stover.
Postmaster John Knisely was
member of a hunting party who
went out in the neighborhood of
Yarnell on the hunt of turkeys. They
made contact with a flock and John
got a shot at a gobbler
weighed 22 pounds, but he didn’t
get it. How he accounts for it's
exact weight is what puzzles his
Ringnecks are quite plentiful this
year and a number of hunters got
birds on the opening day. Harry
Ward and son, of Bellefonte, with
four friends, brought in eight fine
specimens on Friday afternoon, but
the day’s sport cost Mr. Ward his
gun. When they decided to call ita
day and return home they treked
out of the woods to their car where
they all racked their guns against
trees while they talked things over.
When they were ready to go Mr.
Ward picked up a gun and climbed
into the car. When they reached
Bellefonte it was discovered he had
the gun of one f the other hunters
while his own was missing. He and
his son promptly drove back to the
woods but the gun was gone. It
was probably found and taken by
another hunter who is now one gun
ahead of the game.
Col. Wilbur F. Leitzell, who is
now located at Lewisburg as a
hunter of illicit liquor purveyors,
came to Centre county for the open-
ing of the season and bagged four
ringnecks Friday and Saturday.
A story is told of a hunter after
ringnécks in the foothills of the Al-
leghenies who chased up a flock of
eight but by the time he spotted the
{ male of the species they were too
‘far away to shoot at.
| As stated in the beginning of this
article rabbits led the list of game
killed, and most of the hunters who
confined their efforts to cottontails
got.the limit. One Bellefonte party
hunting up near Houserville got
eleven. Earl Kline and party hunt-
ing in the same locality, got eight.
William and Earl Houtz, of Lemont,
got their limit of. five each and a
ringneck. Charles E. ' Gates, of
| Hecla, bagged five rabbits and a
squirrel. Vince Bauer, of Belle-
fonte, got three rabbits and was
home by nine o'clock. A Bellwood
party camping on Fishing creek,
had eighteen rabbits when seen by
our informant and were still on the

On the opening day he and his
son, H. L., took a little ramble along
the foot-hills of Nittany mountains

there were nine rabbits, eight quail

According to the advertisement of
the Altoona Booster Association,
appearing elsewhere in this issue,
the merchants connected with this
progressive Association are going to
hold their fall dollar day on that
day which is also observed as “Sub.
urban Day.” The announcement in-
dicates that the booster merchants
are planning to offer very unusual
values in merchandise of the very
kind that is needed right now in
every home.
Altoona booster merchants always
urge people to patronize their home
town stores first. They invite them,
however, to go to Altoona for
the things their home stores can-
not supply. This fall dollar day
will be a good time to accept the
booster stores invitation as they
will offer such a wonderful assort-
ment of goods at special prices that
everybody will be able to shop to
good advantage and select the
things for home and personal use
that they cannot buy at their local
stores. .
Arrangements have been made by
booster stores to broadcast a special
dollar day musical program over
Station W.F.B.G., on Tuesday, Nov-
ember 12, at 8 P. M. This pro-
gram is to be rendered by one of

Brooks-Doll Post No. 33, Ameri-
can Legion, will launch a member-
ship drive, next week, with the
‘avowed object of making every ex-
service man in this district a Legion-
naire, according to W. W. Gherrity,
post commander. The national ob-
jective of the American Legion this
year, according to Mr. Gherrity, is
adequate hospitalization for every
disabled veteran. According to fig-
ures furnished by the Veteran's Bu-
reau there are now some 5,000 vet-
rans entitled to hospitalization who
cannot receive it because of inade-
quate facilities, and that number is
steadily increasing.
It is with this object in view, that
of presenting a solid front in a de-
mand for help for their stricken
comrades, that the local Legion is
staging its drive at this time. It is
the hope of the. post officers that
the membership will be at least 200
by December 1st, since it is in De-
cember that the veteran legislation
will come before Congress.

It is the earnest desire of borough
officials of Bellefonte that Armistice
day, Monday, November 11, be ob-
served with fitting dignity and sol-
emnity in honor of the soldier dead
of the late war, and it is with this
object in view that we make the
following proclamation:
All national flags should be dis-
played, both by business places and
residences. Just prior to eleven
o'clock a. m. a two-minute silence
will be observed and all traffic will
come to a halt in all sections of the
town. At exactly eleven o’clock bells
and whistles should be sounded
briefly, following which the services
on the Diamond will be conducted by
the local American Legion post.
