—Sheriff Harry E. Dunlap has
twenty-five prisoners in the county
jail, but he did not give them tur-
key for Thanksgiving dinner as he
did last year. One year ago he got
a bargain in turkeys which account-
ed for the turkey dinner, but noth-
ing of the kind happened this year.
Yesterday the prisoners got beef-
steak, which was just as nourishing
as turkey. Up at Rockivew fresh
pork was served at dinner.
B. J. Duffy and R. J. Strohm,
of Harrisburg, were in Bellefonte
this week and authorized the an-
nouncement that they now have
plans so far under way that the
construction of a mausoleum in the
Bellefonte Union cemetery is an as-
sured fact The plans provide for a
two hundred cript building with fun-
eral, chapel. A meeting will proba-
bly be held early next week at which
time definite plans will be made.
——Miles Steele, for a number of
years associated with the Beatty
garage in this place, has leased the
garage at the rear of the Penn-Belle
hotel and will give day and night
service in washing and lubricating
automobiles. He has equipped the
place with automatic machinery for
washing and lubricating and for
emergency small repair work. Miles
is a. good mechanic, a dependable
fellow and, no doubt, will make a
success of his venture. He will also
have storage for a limited number
of cars.
Centre countians resident in
and about Philadelphia as well as
those from here who might be visit-
ing or shopping in the city are most
cordially invited to visit Ira D. Gar-
man at his new store, 1420 Chestnut
street. It is just a few doors west of
Broad, in Burlington Arcade, and we
are. sure that if it should be fine
jewelry, diamonds or watches you
are looking for you would be well
advised by consulting Mr. Garman
and getting the benefit of the fifty
years’ experience he has had in the
business. He is a Centre countian
and it is always worth while to deal
with some one you know personally
or hy reputation.

held its regular meeting on Monday
evening, in the Presbyterian chapel.
At the
session Dr. William Van de Wall de-
lighted a large audience of members
and non-members with a talk on
“Th Mission of Music in Practical
Life” Dr. Van de Wall is the field
representative of mental health in
the State Department of Welfare.
He concluded his talk with a descrip-
tion ‘of the effect of music on the
inmates of our prisons and houses of

of children there would be fewer
people in such places.

Interesting Reports Submitted at the
Annual Meeting of Agricultural
Extension Association
Exceptionally interesting were the
sessions of the annual meeting of the
Centre Co. Agricultural Extension as-
sociation, held in the Grange Arcadia,
Centre Hall, last Saturday. J. Fos-
ter Musser, president of the associa-
tion, presided, and the minutes of
the last annual meeting as well as
those of executive committee meet-
ings were read by the secretary, N.
I. Wilson. W. C, Smeltzer, treasur-
er read his report which was accept-
ed and approved.
County agent Ralph C. Blaney
submitted his annual report which
was quite an eye-opener to those
uninformed in regard to the agent’s
work. Mr. Blaney has
county into thirteen communities
with set programs for each. As a
comparison of
agent's work, in 1921 there were
1206 farm contacts while the past
year there were 3450. Mr. Blaney’s
report showed that during the year
he spent 157 days in the field, 109
days in office, out of county 11 days,
sick 17 days and had 14 days vaca-
telephone calls, 1579 individual let-
ters, made 465 farm visits, prepared
89 news articles, published 13 circu-
lar letters totaling 5331 copies, held
101 demonstrations and 132 meet-
ings with a total attendance of 21,-
947. He has 72 4H club members
in his calf club, poultry club, lamb
club and pig club. There are fifteen
association bulls in the county being
used by 40 members who have a to-
tal of 546 cows. Cow Llesting asso-
ciation work has been boosted dur-
ing the year and at present there
jare 44 members in the associations.
| T. B. eradication has also made good
progress. During the year 1711
herds were retested and 527 herds
tested for the first time, a total of
approximately 20,000 head of cattle.
Indications are that the final results
will show less than half of one per
cent. reactors, which will make Cen-
tre an accredited county.
Miss Reynolds’ work in home eco-
nomics during the year was reported
by her successor, Miss Mayme Lov-
lace. The work had been divided in-
to four classes, clothing, foods,
household furnishing and home man-
In the clothing work classes were
held at Pennsylvania Furnace, Pine
Grove Mills, and Unionville, with a
membership of 60 and an attendance
at the end of project of 608. The
second division took up the selection
and preparation of foods. Classes
were held at Port Matilda, Julian
and Lemont, with a membership of
54. Additional classes were started
in foods at Unionville and Pennsyl-
vania Furnace with a membership of
24, making a total membership in
foods of 78. The third group of
Miss Reynolds’ work considered the
subject of household furnishing. A
class at Pleasant Gap with a mem-
bership of 14 ladies, followed this
course. The fourth group spent their
agement, which included home labor
saving devices and the proper ar-
rangement of the kitchen. Nine la-
dies at Port Matilda made up the
class in this subject. Miss Reynolds
judged at Spring Mills vocational
fair and at the Grange fair at Cen-
tre Hall. She also supplied judges for
the horticultural show at State Col-
lege. She presented a talk on “hot
school lunches,” put on a demonstra-
tion on house furnishing at the an-
nual meeting last year, and gave a
total of thirteen talks on various
subjects and 14 demonstrations, in
the county. >
The morning session closed with
an address by Prof. Howard Niesley,
of State College. on the evolution
of extension work. Dinner was
served by the ladies of Progress
Grange, and it was some job as 101
persons were seated at the first ta-
ble. During the progress of the meal
George Luse gave a brief report of
his trip to the 4H club encampment
in Washington,
Hutchinson told of the 4H club work
at Camp Vail.
The afternoon session was divided
into two sections. One for the la-
dies, at which Mrs. J. J. Markle,
acting as chairman ixtroduced Miss
Harmony Hutchinson, the speaker of
the afternoon. Miss Hutchinson gave

——Up to the moment we have
failed to make mention of a very
pleasant affair that was held atthe
Penn-Belle hotel, in this place, on
Wednesday, Nov. 13th. It happened
that Nelson E. Robb, treasurer of
the Bellefonte Trust, was sixty years
old that day and while the advent
of his natal anniversary didn’t mean
much to the busy banker the em-
ployees of the institution had made
up their minds that it should be
something more than just another
day in his life. Accordingly they
surprised him with a banquet of
honor. The only guests other than
employees of the Trust Co., were
Mrs. Alice A. Robb, the eighty year
old mother of the guest of honor and
his wife, who were seated with him
at the head of the table. It was a
very delightful affair and a rare one,
for few men of Mr. Robb’s years
have mothers left to share their
come. Miss Lovelace gave a talk on
the plan of work which she expects
tocarry out during the
year. Mrs. Markle asked to hear
from leaders of the women’s groups
about the home economics work car-
ried on in their community. Mrs. Al-
bert Albright, of Pennsylvania Fur-
nace, told of the work which had been
done in that section and she felt
that it had been worth while to all
who attended the meetings.
The ' section for the men included
two speakers. C. E. Peters, of
Stormstown, gave a fine talk on the
dairy improvement program in Cen-
tre county. He gave figures show-
ing the improvement of his own
herd. In the past five years his
herd has increased from 6257 pounds
of milk to 9012 pounds
ed from 243.7 pounds to 320.7 pounds
in the same period. Mr.
pointed out that in 1923 there were
only two herds in the cow testing
association that produced 800 pounds
of fat, including a total of 56 cows.
Whereas, in 1928 there were 23
herds including 219 cows which pro-
divided the

"duced over 300 pounds of fat. In
1923 his herd consumed an average
of $71.00 worth of feed, giving a
total of $88.00 profit per cow above
feed cost. In 1928 this same herd
averaged $103.00 per cow feed cost
and netted $156.00 profit per cow
{above feed cost. Mr. Peters con-
cluded his talk with the following
: statement! Centre county has ap-
proximately 11000 dairy cows, of
which 671 are in cow testing asso-
ciations. If all cows in the county
had been in the associations and
|made the increase that the cows
in the association have made, the
dairymen of the county would be
$756,000.00 better off.
The main speaker of the men's
section in the afternoon was Otto G.
Schaeffer, of the Meredith Publishing
company, of New York city, who
talked on the constantly increasing
consumption of milk.
The meeting adjourned at three

The Bellefonte Academy football
team closed it’s season, on Saturday,
by defeating the Western Maryland
Freshmen, on Hughes field, 13 to 0.
The extremely cold day kept many
people away from the game but
those who did go witnessed a pretty
exhibition of football and an exciting
game. The condition of the field,
which was frozen hard and slippery,
militated against spectacular plays
yet both of the Academy touchdowns
were more or less thrillers. The
first one was made by Abee who took
a forward pass thrown by Graham
and ran 65 yards to place the
pigskin back of the goal line. The
second touchdown was the result of
another forward pass, Graham to
Hardy, who sprinted thirty yards to
the goal line. Temple, Joyant and
Dyson also played a strong game for
the Academy while Brubaker, a
former Academy player, was the
star for Western Maryland.
During the season the Academy
played nine games, winning eight
and losing one, that to the West
Point Freshmen, by the score of 13
to 7. The DuBois firemen was the
only other team to cross the Acad-
emy goal line. In the nine games
the Academy tallied 217 points to 19
against them.
The Bellefonte High school lost its
conference game to State College, on
Saturday by the score of 3 to 0.

Centre county will accept it’s al-
lotment of the six million dollar
State highway fund for the early
construction of roads on well defined
highway routes, according to county
commissioner N. I. Wilson. Centre
'county’s allotment from the fund is
| $49,400. and as the allotment to
, counties of the seventh and eighth
1class is on a 75-25 per cent. basis,
Ito get the fund the commissioners
| will have to appropriate $16 466 to-
‘ward the work. They ‘also have the
i right to name the stretch of road on
| which the improvement work is te
i be done, and the commissioners have
| decided on the road over Bald Eagle
| mountain from Matternville to near
§Madtha Furnace, which will virtually
| be ‘a continuation of the road from
| State College to Matternville, work
on which has already been started.
| Petitions are now being circulated
for signers -at - State -College and
; Philipsburg, as these will be the two
{ towns most benefitted. These peti
: tions will have to be properly exe-
cuted and sent in to the Highway
Department by December 1st, as
that is the time limit for accepting
, or rejecting the allotment.

The 1929 deer hunting season will
open next Monday, one day late ow-
ing to December 1st falling on Sun-
day. With three Sundays in the sea-
son it will limit hunting to twelve
days. But this will probably be long
enough for the most of the hunters
to satisfy their lust for venison.
i To date over six thousand hun-
| ters” licenses have been issued to
' county hunters which is about on a
| par with former years. Last year,
when doe deer were the legal game,
' 6142 regular hunting licenses were
issued in Centre county and 7546 doe
licenses, the 1404 difference being
accounted for by hunters in other
parts of the State who were com.’
pelled to get their doe license in this
county in order to hunt here. In
was 6230.

Wreck Near Dale’s Summit,
Harry Miller. 22 years old, of No.
113 Linden Ave., Darby, Pa., was in-
stantly killed about 3:30 o’clock on
Saturday afternoon, when the Ford
coupe in which he was a passenger
skidded on the snow covered high-
way at the forks of the road, at
Dale’s Summit, turned turtle and af- |
ter rolling over two or three times
lodged against a telephone pole. Mil-
ler was thrown through the top of
the car and sustained a badly frac- |
tured skull and other injuries, his
death being practically instanta-
neous. Two other young men in the
car, Lloyd K. Muhe, the driver, and
William Pritchard, escaped uninjur-
The three young men, employees
in the composing room of the Even-
ing Bulletin, Philadelphia, had mo-
tored to Centre county for a week-
end visit with friends at Livonia. On
Saturday afternoon they took a run
to State College and were on their
way back from the College when the
accident happened. The driver evi-
dently failed to notice the forks in
the road until he was very close and
in attempting to make a quick turn
to the right onto the road leading to
Pleasant Gap the rear end of the car
skidded. The left rear wheel ran
into a ditch by the side of the road
collapsed and the car turned turtle
and rolled over.
State highway patrolman Cecil
Gross and county detective Boden
made a quick trip to the scene of the
tragedy and after ascertaining all
the facts possible the body of the
dead young man was brought to
Bellefonte and turned over to funer-
al director E. E. Widdowson. Muhe
was placed under arrest and taken
to the Centre county jail.
Coroner W. R. Heaton, of Philips-
burg, and notified and came in
Bellefonte, on Saturday evening, and
held an inquest at the Widdowson
funeral parlors. After hearing all
the evidence in connection with the
accident the jury exonerated Muhe
from blame and he was discharged
from custody State police, howev-
er, informed him that they would
have to report him for reckless driv-
ing and he is still subject to a Com-
monwealth charge, if the district at-
torney considers the case one in
which action ought to be taken.
Muhe, however, was not detained
in Bellefonte but both he and Pritch-
ard returned to Philadelphia on
the same train that conveyed the:
body of their dead companion east
on Sunday morning.

$lay, Friday, November 29.
Following his arrival, he will stage
a street parade. It is to be one of
the most beautiful and interesting
parades ever seen in Altoona. It will

will cover enough territory so every

Santa and Mrs. Santa have had a
busy summer, at their North Pole
home, getting ready for the holidays.
He is a tireless worker, as all know,
and he works all day, everyday. You
know the days at the North Pole are
six months’ long, so it is not a hard
matter to understand that in a
whole year of such days, he and his
family can make toys for the boys
and dolls for the girls and as many
other useful things as they want and
have some left over.
Santa is bringing a band with him
this year. There are wonderful mu-
sicians in Santa’s band. It will be a
wonderful surprise to every boy and
girl, what fine music they can make.
After practicing every day since last
Christmas, it might be guessed the
members of the band know by now
how to blow their horns and beat
their drums , to make the most
cheerful holiday in all the year.
Everybody will be pleased to know
that Santa will be in and about the
stores to help with his suggestions,
as to what they should have for
Christmas gifts. Children are asked,
when their parents take them over
to see the parade, to bring their
letters along. Santa will have a
courier passing along the line of
parade to collect the letters. Then
in the evening, after all have gone
to bed and Santa is resting, he will
read the letters and have the pack-
ages of Christmas presents made up.
One float will show Santa Claus;
another*his toymakers; another Old
King Cole; Alice in Wonderland;
Barber, Barber shave a pig; the
house that Jack built; Goldie Locks
and three bears; old woman who liv-
ed in a shoe and whoopee cowboys
