Sports for the boys and girls
drew quite a number to the new
Beaver athletic field, where, under
the supervision of L. R, Lenhart, as-
sistant superintendent of county
schools, and John Decker, of Spring
Mills, the contestants participated
in group events, races, and relays.
Prizes were awarded the winners.
While the boys and girls were com-
peting in the sports program, the
men took excursions to the vege-
table. gardens, grass plots, milk cool-
ing house, poultry plant, dairy barn,
and creamery. The women viewed
exhibits of clothing, farm library,
and nutrition hints, entered their
youngsters in the baby show, heard
a talk on “Flower Arrangement for
the Home,” by Professor J. R.
Bracken, of the landscape architec-
tural division of the department of
horticulture, and visited the flower
and vegetable gardens and the green-
During the basket picnic in the
college grove, the crowd was enter-
tained by the Spring Mills band. Dr.
R. D. Hetzel, president of the Col-
lege, welcomed the visitors, whom
he called neighbors, to the field day
and expressed the pleasure of the
College in having them on the cam-
pus. Other speakers were Dean R.
L. Watts, of the school of agricul-
ture; Dr, S. W. Fletcher, director of
research for the agricultural experi-
ment station; Director M. S. Mec.
Dowell, of the agricultural extension
service, each of whom spoke about
the line of work represented, and
J. G. Shook, Spring Mills, master of
the Pomona Grange, who spoke in
behalf of visitors. =
Results of the baby show were
then announced by Miss Mayme
Lovelace, home economics extension
representative in the county. In the
four age groups the winners were:
Sarah May Lyle, Bellefonte, four
months old; Robert Lee Allison
Porter, Hublersburg, 10 months old;
Phyllis Barbara Lutz, Port Matilda,
17 months old, and Billy Fisher,
State College, 19 months old. Miss
Lovelace stated that the babies were
judged on their health conditions,
and that practically all of them
were found to be of normal weight
or slightly over.
Winners of other contests were:
C. E. Mothersbaugh, State College,
number of apples in a bushel, 261;
S. G. Walker, Spring Mills, butter-
fat guessing contest; E. T. Bechdel,
Beech Creek, first prize winner in
guessing the weight of dairy cattle;
A. L. Albright, Pennsylvania Fur-
nace, winner of the lime require-
ments guessing contest; J. J. Markle,
State College, winner of the feed
identification contest; Miss Priscilla
Wasson, State College, identified 14
out of 25 leaves of forest trees for
first place; Miss Lou Emma Witmer,
of Bellefonte, won the hog weight
guessing contest, and William Ever-
hart, State College, was the winner
of the sheep weight guessing con-
Guessing the weights of three
‘different chickens, H. E. Robertson,
Fleming; Miss Maude Musser, State
College, and Vance Packard, State
College, were the winners. Esti-
mating the egg production of two
different hens, Mrs. W. F. Way,
Port Matilda, and H. C, Smeltzer,
Bellefonte, were the winners. A
visitor from out of the State, W. C.
Hoffman, Ashtabula, Ohio, guessed
the closest on the weight of a tur-
key. A total of 746 guesses were
made in the six poultry contests.
A parade of the college horses
followed the noon program, and then
there was a tug of war between a
caterpillar tractor and the farmers.
Fifty-five men were counted on the
rope just before the tractor was
held by them, but eye-witnesses
reported that some others became so
enthusiastic that they jumped in to
help their struggling fellowmen and
therefore took advantage of the iron
horse. After the contest closed, it
was found that one man had guess-
ed that 55 men could hold the trac.
tor but he was not in the crowd so
the prize was awarded to C. W.
Sigel, Port Matilda, who had the
next nearest estimate, 53.
Boalsburg and Rebersburg engaged
in a ball game which was won by
the former. Trips to the college
farms, orchards, experimental plots,
and through the college buildings
closed the program for the day.
With practically all the events lo-
cated in the shade of trees in the
agricultural woodlot, the visitors
were protected from the severe heat,

! TROOP L BOYS GO A. W. 0 tu,
When Troop L went to camp at’
, Mt. Gretna, two weeks ago, they
took along six boys as “fillers” who
had visions of a dandy time drilling
‘on the prancing steeds and being
General W.G. Price, But when they
arrived in camp they were sadly dis-
iillusioned. They were assigned to
ithe duty of kitchen police, peeling
spuds, waiting table in the mess
hall, washing the dishes for seventy
hungry soldiers, scouring the gar-
bage cans, and such work. Serving
their country in this way was sadly
ilacking inthe pictured glory and the
boys grew tired of soldiering in the
Last Wednesday afternoon Jimmy
Taylor, ‘son of ex-sheriff E, R. Tay-
lor, and Henry Felmlee decided to
go A. W. O. L. Watching their
chance they slipped out of camp
and started on a hitch-hike home.
They were given a number of rides
along the way and night time found
them near Lewisburg. There they
went into an orchard and slept on
the ground until morning. Walking
and riding they finally reached
home about four o'clock Thurs-
day afternoon, tired, dirty and
hungry. They had walked about
forty miles of the one hundred and
twenty between Bellefonte and the
As the boys had not enlisted for
service they were not subject to
arrest and return to camp, so that
some of the enlisted men were no
doubt placed on k. p. duty.
Miss Pearl Ryder,
Penna. was the winner in the
guessing contest conducted by the
department of agricultural economics
at the Centre county picnic held at
State College last Thursday. The
contest centered around the August
in the United States made by the
United States Department of Agri-
culture. The government forecast,
gust 11, estimated potato production
this year to be 373,000,000 bushels.
Miss Ryder’s guess was 373,420,613
bushels, As the winner in the con-
test, Miss Ryder received a box of
potato chips. Mahlon Winklebleck,
Rebersburg, was second in the con-
test and is deserving.of honorable
mention. His guess was 375,426,-
000 bushels.
In this interesting contest there
were eighty-seven participants. Sixty-
nine of these under-estimated the
government forecast, while only
eighteen over-estimated it. There
were only 10 guesses which came
within 10 million bushels of the
forecast made by the government;
16 were within 20 millions; 87 were
within 30 millions and 41 were with-
in 40 millions. Forty-five of the
guessers, or over half of them, were
more than 50 million bushels away
from the government figures. The
lowest guess was 150,000,000; the
highest, 506,816,000 and the average
325,220,080 bushels.

protest to Dr. Theodore B. Appel,

he claims that sewage from the

the two springs on his client’s farm,
east of the pententiary buildings,
rendering the water unfit for use.
The springs referred to are the
source of the stream which supplies
the water to the Bellefonte fish

This week the Grange leadership
conference, and next week the open-
ing of the 57th encampment and
Centre county fair, at Grange park,
Centre Hall.
Beautiful Grange park, with its
70 acres of grounds, is again taking
on the appearance of a tented city.
Several hundred tents are already
erected, many of which are serving
as quarters for the great number of
Grange delegates from all parts of
the State here for the week at the
leadership conference. By the early
part of next week the 450 to 500
tents will have been erected for the
army of tenters who will occupy
them for a full' week. The fair
committee will open the gates to
the park on Thursday, when camp-
ers may for the first occupy their
tents. The fair opens Saturday,
the 23rd day of August, and con-
tinues until the following Friday.
The boarding house on the park
will be in charge of Logan Grange,
of Pleasant Gap. ° This Grange in.
‘cludes in its membership farmers’
wives who know how to serve a
good meal, Boarders at the park
boarding house will have no need
to find fault on.that score.
i The Oliver farm machinery com-
pany will have an implement display
‘on the park that will doubtless at-
{tract considerable attention. Be-
sides exhibiting a full line of ma-
chines in general use in the Kast,
they will have on exhibition a com-
, bine,—a machine used to cut, thresh
{and bag grain in one complete ope-
i ration. Whether or not such a ma-
{chine would be a profitable invest-
‘ment for the eastern farmer is a
matter of conjecture; however, the
, exhibit will prove interesting.
The livestock exhibit gives prom-
ise of being up to the usual good
standard of past years, with im-
provement in some divisions, notably
The poultry exhibit will be
strengthened by the addition of the
girls’ poultry club of State College,
an organization of 39 girls, who
will enter many fine specimens of
. birds.
| The complete program of the fair
week activities will be published next
One of the new—and probably
among the largest—attractions at
| the Grange fair, this year, will be
(the rabbit show sponsored by the
{Central Pennsylvania Rabbit and
| Cavy Breeder’s association. It will
occupy a special tent large enough
to house from 300 to 400 regular
entries, as well as special displays
| of tanned furs, meat rabbits and
| various material exhibits of interest
in the rabbit breeding game.
| A speaker of national repute will
| make an address on the rabbit in-
| dustry, at the tent, each evening at
| 7:15 o'clock.
| Awards for exhibits will include
11st, 2nd and °~4 prize ribbons, which
will carry cash prizes of $1.00, 75
.and 50 cents, respectively. Quite a
‘large number of special prizes will
“also be awarded,
| Amn entry fee of 25 cents per spe-
cimen will be required on regular
! classes of senior buck and senior
doe, and junior buck and junior doe.
i All breeders are requested to place
las many entries as possible. Judge
i Detrick, of Barnhart, Pa., will place
| the awards, and ashe is an author-
ity on rabbits breeders will thus be
able to learn the exact strain of
their stock.

The forest fire which had been
burning with more or less activity
on Bald Eagle mountain, in Worth
and Taylor townships, fanned by the
high winds of Sunday, broke out on
the south side of the mountain, near
Stormstown, on Sunday afternoon.
Appeals for assistance were made to
firemen at Tyrone, State College and
Bellefonte. Two companies respond-
ed from Tyrone, the State College
company and the Undines, of Belle.
The Undines, however, did not go
until a third call was made and
when they got there found the fire
on the mountain several miles from
water of any kind. None of the
four companies could put their
pumpers into service ithough fire.
men from all of them went to the
mountain and did what they could
to stay the course of the flames.
By back-firing they kept the fire
from getting into the grass fields
along fhe mountain.
One of the local residents up there
claimed he had been fighting the
flames for thirteen hours without a
bite to eat and he didn’t know when
he would be relieved to get some-
thing. By night time, however, the
fire was fairly well under control.
