—At a brief session of court last
Saturday, probation officer Roy Wil-
kinson presented a petition for the
parole of William McLaughlin, one of
the young men implicated in operat-
iing the “101 Ranch” last summer
and who was sentenced to pay a
fine of $200 and serve four:months
in jail. One of the reasons set
forth by Mr. Wilkinson in asking
for a parole was the fact that Mc-
Laughlin is a young married man
and since he has been in jail has
become a father. His wife and
baby were in court as material evi-
dence, Judge Fleming did not take
very kindly to the request for a
a parole and stated that the defend-
ant no doubt knew he was to be-
come a father before he engagd in
his unlawful business, and it was no
time now to come and ask mercy of
the court. Therefore the parole was

proved by council. .
Mr. Cobb stated that Nittany

Four Penn State students, select-
ed from 31 volunteers, went to the
Clearfield hospital on Tuesday morn-
ing to offer blood in transfusion to
assist in saving the life of Dr. Os-
wald Frederick Boucke, head of the
college economics department, who
has been critically ill with a kidney
ailment for several months at that
hospital. There was a series of ope-
rations, the last of which was Tues-
day a week ago, and it is reported
that on that occasion it was impos-
sible to remove troublesome stones.
Dr. Boucke is one of the most popu-
lar members of the college faculty
and seniors and juniors deem it a
great privilege to attend his lectures
in economics.
Seven students went to Clearfield
on Sunday, but it was found that
their blood did not match that of
Dr. Boucke. The College department
of bacteriology on Monday tested 24
students under the direction of Pro-
fessors Knutsen and Anderson. They
found only four possessing the pecul-
iar type of blood required. They
were Kenneth Fitzsimmons, Chester;
H. A. Corre, Portage; Richard Mc-
Guire, Wormleysburg, and Thomas J.
Powers, Williamsport.
Dr. Boucke has been a member of
the college faculty for 21 years and
head of the economics department
since 1923.
—A mail box has been put up on |
the southwest corner of the new
postoffice building and marked “for
use only between 8 p.m.and7a, m.”
That includes the time that the
postoffice is closed at night, but with
no light in that immediate neighbor-
hood the box is not easily located,
while the notice cannot be read. A
light placed over the box would not
only attract attention to it but
would also give some illumination
along the south side of the building, |
which is quite dark at night.
——Dr. Edwin Erle Sparks, for-
mer president of the Pennsylvania
State College, has been honored by
the Phi Kappa Phi. honorary scholas-
tic fraternity, through the establish-

arship endowment. Dr. Sparks was
instrumental in extending the sphere
of the society during his life, and
served as president general and re-
gent general.

A jury in criminal court at
Franklin, on Saturday returned a
verdict of guilty of involuntary man-
slaughter against Walter J. Lyster
and Harold P, Watts, former coal
and iron police, for causing the
death of John Barcoski, near Pitts-
burgh, about a year ago, while a
third officer, Frank Slapikis, was ac-
quitted. The maximum sentence
for involuntary manslaughter is two
years, but the court has discretion-
ary power and can send the men to
the penitentiary, Allegheny county
workhouse or to jail, or can dispose
of the case with a fine.
Lyster, one of the men convicted,
was formerly a state policeman and
at one time was stationed in Belle-
At that time he was haled
into court for beating up a man but

to do much. In fact he couldn’t even
get out for a deer hunt last fall. We re-
fer to that because from our earliest rec-
ollection the “Riley Hunting Club’’ has
