* The wild turkey and squirrel sea-
jon came to an end, last Friday, and
wccording to an estimate of game
srotector Thomas G. Mosier, it was
3 very good season for both kinds
sf game. While he has no definite
jgure as to the number killed he ex-
pressed the belief that in the neigh-
yorhood of four hundred wild tur-
zeys had been bagged in the county.
[f this estimate is any ways near
sorrect it will undoubtedly mean
‘hat turkeys are becoming more
plentiful every year.
—One of Penn State’s promising
soccer players for next season was
killed in an auto acident recently.
The student, Raymond Everberg, of
Drexel Hill, was killed when an au-
to in which he was riding ran into

been counted on to fill a regular po-
sition at k on next year’s team

Fifteen hundred coal mine em-
ployees have enrolled in the night
mining schools now being set up
throughout the State by the School
of Mines and Metallurgy of the
Pennsylvania State College. These
schools will operate in seven cities
in the anthracite regions and are the
result of the cooperation of five coal
companies in an extensive employee
training program through the de-
partment of engineering extension
of the college. :
College officials, who expected on-
ly one thousand students, now an-
nounce that a staff of thirty instruc-
tors will be maintained, assisted by
lecturers from eachof the compa-
pies. The training is to be conducted
on a three year plan, classes meet-
ing twice a week for twenty weeks
each year. Elementary, advanced
and special phases of mining will be
taught by the college instructors,
this work being supplemented by
talks on practical mining subjects by
company officials.
Night mine schools in Pottsville,
Shenandoah, Mt. Carmel and Tower
City are being sponsored by the Phil-
adelphia & Reading Coal & Iron
company, Maderia, Hill and com-
pany, Susquehanna Collieries com-
panies and Lehigh Valley Coal com-
pany, and those in Scranton, Wilkes-
Barre and Carbondale, by the Hud-
son Coal company.
Company and college officials hope
that this practical training will lead
to more efficient mining and increas-
ed productivity, and thus bring about
improved conditions in the coal fields.
The Penn State engineering exten-
sion department, which is cooperat-
ing with this work, has announced
that 600 students have enrolled in
five night branch schools conducted
on the same plan for employees of
other industries in Allentown, Read-
ing, Erie, Scranton and Wilkes-
Barre. Thirty-five class centers are
being organized for other education-
al service by this department.

Plans to remodel the present min-
ing building at the Pennsylvania
State College into laboratories and
class rooms for the home economics
department have been approved by
the college trustees. The complet-
ed plans call for the remodeling of
the existing central unit and the
addition of two wings.
Home economics instruction at
Penn State has been sponsored for
almost 30 years by women’s clubs of
the State.” They were responsible
fot obtaining the first legislative ap-
propriation for this branch, and al-
ways have held an interest in its
progress. Miss Edith P. Chase, head
of the department, says that over
200 of the 600 girl students at the
college are majoring in home eco-
nomics this year. The new building
will be on the east campus not far
from the recently erected Grange
Memorial Dormitory for Girls.

Most of the Colonists, having been
farmers in the north of England,
now betook themselves to the custom
of that section of the country in cele-
brating the bringing in of the last
harvest sheaf. First a wicker bas-
ket was carried into the common
house, and festooned with many col-
ored ribbons, as gay in its festival
array as the people who gathered
around it.
When the basket was in readiness
two maidens lifted it from the
ground, holding it between them
while the Colonists fell in two by
two behind them. For a moment
there arose in full song that stirring
processional, “The earth is the
Lord’s ana the fulness thereof, the
world 2 they as dwell therein.”
s they marched, they sang, fill-
ing the clearing with music. From
the path the procession turned into
the past the strength of the maidens,
two men came forth and gravely
raised the basket between them.
With quickened step the procession
marched back, through the field and
down the path to the granary, sing-
ing a song of thankfulness.
Having finished the marching song
Governor Bradford bade all kneel in
a half circle around the front of the
granary. The elder sent up a peti-
tion of thanksgiving for the riches
of the earth, forest, and sea which
had been bountifully poured on the
When the elder ceased, one of the
maidens approached the granary, un-
fastening and throwing open its
door. Governor Bradford promptly
came forward and plucking a stick
from the basket, threw it into the
grainhouse. So one by one those who
gathered the corn took up a stick
and threw it into the granary until
only two sticks were left, Priscilla,
blushing sweetly, gently dropped one
of these in the storehouse.
The second maiden now stood
forth, holding the last stick of corn.
With her head thrcwn back and
singing words of praise, she dropped
the last sheaf of harvest into the
granary, closed he door, locked it
and carried the key to the Governor.
When this simple ceremony had
been completed, all stood with bow-
ed heads as again they sang:: The
Lord shall preserve thy going out,
and thy coming in from this time
forth and forevermore.”
‘Tt was garnered the first harvest
from the field of the great clearing,
and safely housed amid the songs of
praise of the people. One of the mai-
dens who carried the basket was
Priscilla, and one of the men who
took it back was John Alden.

a mistaken derivation of the word
from “Compt,” an obsolete form of
count suggested by the French
“comp.” Since a controller's business
