Number of Exhibits Largest Ever
Shown at Grange Park.
The largest number of boys and
girls that ever camped at Centre
{Hall and took part in the various
contests offered was in evidence at
the Grange fair, last week, says
William S. Jeffries, county vocational
supervisor. Not only was the num-
ber of boys and girls larger but the
number of exhibits entered by them
exceeded those of any previous year.
The quality of these exhibits made
by the boys and girls in their study
of vocational agriculture and home
economics was of a very high type
and emphasizes the excellent work
being done in the vocational schools
in Centre county. It also demon-
strates that the rising generation
has not lost its love of rural life
or interest in winning a livelihood
from the soil.
The agricultural project contest
this year had some very close com-
petition. 61 boys entered the senior
contest. Each boy’s project, in or-
der to compete, had to be of such
size as to be eligible for the State
contest held in connection with the
Farm Products Show in Harrisburg.
In the Junior project contest, open
for boys and girls in the grade
schools, 21 were entered.
Miss Geer, supervisor of home
economics in the Harris township
vocational school, placed a very novel
exhibit of a model kitchen, She
portrayed the correct arrangement
of the kitchen furniture, with ap-
propriate descriptions of “what to
do” and “whatnot to do” in kitchen
arrangement in order to save labor.
The county vocational work was
represented by an exhibit in land-
scape gardening. An attempt was
made to show the effect of planting
and arrangement of shrubbery about
the home. This was accomplished
by using two small houses of the
same design. The ground surround-
ing the one was left unplanted while
the other one was surrounded by the
proper shrubs. A very notable con-
trast was evident.
Gregg and Harris township voca-
tional schools each had school ex-
hibits composed of articles made in
the home economics and agricultural
classes. The judges awarded the
first prize to the Gregg township
The livestock judging contest for
boys and girls of school age, held
by the county extension agent and
the vocational teachers of the county,
attracted a large number of young
people. Three types of livestock
were judged, namely: Dairy cattle,
swine and poultry. The winners were
selected from those with the highest
total score for the three classes.
The honors for the judging con-
test were divided among the two
vocational schools, the Gregg town-
ship school getting a first, third,
fifth and sixth, while Harris town-
ship won a second and a fourth,
The winners of the various con.
tests in the senior project were as

Boalsburg poultry clubs held their
annual roundups at the fair last
Taking advantage of the darkness
three prisoners at Rockview peni-
tentiary quietly slipped out cf ranks
as ‘they were being marched from
the big dining hall to the cell block,
five minutes after eight o'clock on
Sunday evening, managed to climb
over the new stockade and make
their escape before their absence was
noticed by the guards in charge.
The three men, all of whom are
from Allegheny county, were Thomas
Lewis, serving 10 to 20 years for
highway robbery; Joseph Chali, a
Cuban, doing 4to 10 years forlar-
ceny, and Steve Waters, serving a
5 to 13 year’s sentence for breaking
and entering, larceny and making
away with stolen goods,
The prisoners had been in the
dining hall witnessing + the usual
Sunday evening program of moving
pictures. It was just 8 o'clock when
they were marshalled by guards
for the march back to the cell block.
On arriving there it was discovered
that the three mentioned above were
missing. The big siren was blown
for several minutes, to summon
every available guard, and Belle-
fonte people who heard it thought
there must be a general outbreak,
but nothing so serious happened. La-
ter in She night the siren was again
blown. Guards were out all night
but failed to drive the. escaped pris-
oners from cover.
The blowing of the big steam
siren, at Rockview penitentiary on
Sunday night, was so unusual that
many people believed it meant a
general attempt at outbreak among
the prisoners. The whistle was in-
stalled at the penitentiary in the
early years of it’s history and at
that time was used to announce the
escape of prisoners. It’s use, how-
ever, was discontinued by order of
Hon. John Francies, at that time
superintendent of the institution, be-
cause he believed it did more harm
than good by giving warning to the
escaped prisoners that their absence
had been discovered and guards were
on their trail,
Recently, however, the prison
board ordered the whistle restored
and decreed that it be blown to an-
nounce the escape of prisoners. This | as souvenirs and the girl who served | of the Rapid Transit
for the purpose of notifying every-
body within sound of the whistle
that prisoners are at large which,
it is believed, will result in their
apprehension in less time than

The Rhoads Bros., of Bellefonte,
have been awarded the contract
for erecting the concrete piers
to carry the 16_inch pipe
the big spring to the south end of
Race street, and began work on
Tuesday morning.
Water superintendent J.D. Seibert
has had a force of men at work
down at the Gamble mill where he
has over three hundred feet of ditch
dug and ready for the pipe. The
water wheel and pump are both in
place but some of the connections
between the big pipe line and the
pump have not yet been received
which is holding up the laying of
the pipe. These connections, how-
ever, should be here within a few
days, when connections will be made

pipe started. ’
During the past fortnight a por-
tion of the $38,000 bond issue au-
thorized by council was sold and
the mortgage held by the Lycoming
Trust company paid. It might here
be stated that the bonds were con-
siderably over subscribed,
The 16-inch pipe which will con-
vey the water from the big spring
to the pumping station at the Gam-
ble mill will have a fall of six feet,
which will be ample for the size
of the pipe. During the past week
the pipe has all been thoroughly
swabbed out and cleaned ready for

Col. and Mrs. Charles A. Lind-
bergh, enroute from Detroit, Mich.,
to New York, flew into a spell of
weather when they reached the
Bellefonte airport, shortly aften ten
o'clock on Monday night, and wise-
ly decided to spend the night here.
A call from the landing field fora

record time and at 10:40 the dis-
tinguished guests were landed at

restaurant for something to eat be.
fore retiring. They were up early
on Tuesday morning, breakfasted
and were out at the field before
seven o'clock, but a dense fog over
the valley and mountains held them
at the field for two hours, and it
was just 8.58 o'clock when they
finally took to the air and con-
tinued their flight to New York.
Both Col. and Mrs. Lindbergh are
exceedingly democratic in their tastes
as well as views, and were just as
much at home in Bellefonte as they
are in New York or Chicago.
If you want to sit in the seats
of the mighty all you need do is call
Frank Davis’ taxi the next time you
want to ride somewhere. Frank is
the lucky bird who had the call to
taxi Col. and Mrs, Lindbergh in from
the aviation field when they landed
here Monday night, so that his car
has carried two persons to whom
even Presidents and Kings kow-tow.
The funny part of it is that Frank
never knew that he had such dis-
tinguished fares until the next
morning ‘when someone told him the
big news that “Col. and Mrs. Lind-
{bergh are in town.” He said: “Ihad
no idea who they were. They seem-
ied just like nice,
‘and when I delivered them to the
Brockerhoff house I presented my
card to the lady and said I would
be glad to take them back to the
‘field in the morning and then went

Love is a native of Potter township,

—Two pleasant callers at the Watch-
man office last Friday morning were
David S. Lingle and James Zerby from
over in Decker valley, Potter township.
They had been at the Granegr picnic the
day before and came on over here to
attend to some business on Friday. As
Decker valley is reputed to be alive with
deer we questioned the gentlemen about
that. Both of them were of the opinion
that the most of them have been killed,
as they rarely see one anymore and the
few that are there now are very wild,
whereas before the open doe season deer
were tame and plentiful as sheep in
there. Mr. Lingle told us of at least
one farmer who was blessed with a
great hay crop this year. He said that
Homer Neff, who is on the Sankey
farm near Potter's Mills, had so much
that he left a lot of it lying th the
fleld; hauling in only what was freeest
from weeds. Mr. Neff is a lucky man,
indeed. Most other farmers were forced
to the necessity of hauling in weeds
sprinkled with grass. In talking about
his potatoes Mr. Zerby said that he
might be credited with a fine crop of
