, HESSER.—Rev. Joseph M. Hesser,
rector of St. Mary's Catholic church
at Snow Shoe during the past three
years, died at the Mercy hospital,
Baltimore, at 7.30 u-ciock last Sat-
urday morning. Three weeks pre-
vious he had gone to the hospital
for treatment for a heart affection.
Last Friday he unexpectedly devel-
oped a severe attack of pneumonia
which resulted in heart collapse and
his death followed.
Father Hesser was a son of Mat-
thew and Caroline O'Malley Hesser
and was born in Altoona on August
10th, 1895, hence was 35 years, 3
"months and 19 days old, He attended
the Mt. Carmel parochial schools
where he obtained his elementary
education, going thence to Loretto
where he took his High school course
'in the St. Francis preparatory school;
studied in the college and after
graduating therefrom, took his theo-
logical course in the same institu-
| The young priest was ordained
into the Christian ministry at Mt.
| Aloysius academy on July 30, 1922.
He was first assigned as an assistant
rector at St. Mary's church, Hol-
lidaysburg; next he was assistant
iat Renovo; then he went to St.
Mark's, Altoona, as assistant and
then was, for a period, chaplain at
the Cresson sanitorium. Three
years ago he was placed in charge
of St. Mary's parish, at Snow Shoe.
This is a comparatively small parish
'and it required the hardest kind of
work on the part of Father Hesser
to make it self-supporting and the
unusual demands on his time and
' energy may have contributed to his
'preakdown in health. Through it
all he was ever cheerful and hopeful
| of better things to come.
{ His survivors include his mother,
who at times lived with him in
, Snow Shoe, three brothers and one
! sister, Charles M., Edward J. and
| Lawrence Hesser, and Mrs, Anna
Carroll, all of Altoona. The re-
| mains were taken to Altoona where
funeral mass was held in St. Mark's
church at 9.30 o'clock on Wednes-
day morning, burial being made in
Calvary cemetery.

Miss Amelia Earhart, well
known and popular aviatrix, was a
Bellefonte visitor for about an hour,
on Monday. Accompanied by George
Putnam, head of the book publish-
ing Louse of Putnam & Co, and
Miss Edna V. O'Brien, of New
York, she came here by airplane
from New York and had lunch at
the Penn Belle, leaving an hour
later for Cleveland. Metropolitan
news gatherers were of the opinion
that Miss Earhart and Mr. Putnam
were on the hunt of a quiet place
in which to get married, but the
nuptials were not performed in
Bellefonte if such were the case.
