Cervantes roamed the sunlit roads
of Spain, Goldsmith played a flute
for bread, Jim Tully has immortal-
ized the open road and “Frankie”
Ziem and “Jimmy” Hackett have
learned that home »s the best place
after all.
Just a week ago, last Wednesday,
“Frankie” and “Jimmy,” aged four-
teen and sixteen respectively, wan-
dered to the railroad yards of their
native city, Hillside, New Jersey.
They watched with envious eyes the
long freights pulling away for dis-
tant parts and the thrill of adven-
ture crept into their young, romantic
minds. Previous warnings by par-
ents and teachers were swept to the
four winds by the glamor and glory
of a journey into that great beyond
where the railroad trains went, and
without further consideration for
home and mother they climbed a
freight and embarked on a career
into an unknown world,
This being the initial journey of
the would-be hoboes and not being
at all familiar with the mode of
transportaion they had chosen
“Father Fate" deait harshly with
them. “Jimmy” and “Frankie”
found themselves on a refrigator car
and having only an ice compartment
or exposure tothe eloments to choose
between as a resting place, they de-
cided on the lesser of the two evils
and crawled into the top of the car
where the ice is stored. The ride
was undoubtedly very cold but neith-
er the rays of a tropical sun nor the
freezing temperatures of a refriga-
tor car can abate the ardor of ro-
mantic youth, and only after the
traia had stopped in Altoona did
the lads emerge from the polar cli-
mate in which they had made their
debut in the wide, wide world.
It was twelve-thirty the next morn-
inp when the slow freight arrived in
Altoona. The youthful vagabonds had
been almost sixteen hours in their
air-cooled state-room. It was dark
and they were in a strange city.
The hours from the time of their
arrival till the break of dawn were
spent on the top of the car, and
with the dawn came another desire,
even stronger than the desire for
adventure; a desire to go home.
In the pocket of Hackett's well
worn sweater reposed a twenty-five
cent piece. The entire purchasing
power of “Jimmy” and “Frankie”
was wrapped up in this one piece of
silver. Even the stoutest of hearts
would flinch at the thought of being
three-hundred miles from home and
friends with only a quarter but the
firm of Hackett and Ziem, explorers
in the fields of fame and fortune,
was not dismayed. They calmly
purchased two bars of chocolate and
a package of cigarettes, the cost ea-
tirely consuming the finances of the
By the grace

Perhaps the thrill of an auto-
mobile ride and the fascination
for the wonders of a motor vehicle
that only boys of their ages can
possess, the “Jersey Kids" decided
that they would motor home in a
car of their own, Not having the
necessary funds with which to pur-
chase an automobile the only alter-
native was a theft. The car of
Miss Beulah Fortney, of Pine Grove
Mills, parked near the Court house
attracted the eyes of the two boys
and they concluded to make away
with it. With the realization that
neither knew how to operate the
machine they were temporarilly
stopped, but youth knows no harriers
and Frank and James came to the
conclusion that it would be the best
kind of fun to learn to drive on the
way to Hillside; so they boarded
the car and attempted to start the
motor. Before they succeeded in
making a get-away Fire Chief John
Bower intercepted them and the
motor patrol took them in custody.
They were only too ready to tell
the whole story and First Sergeant
Bear, of Troop C, immediately sent
a teletype message to Newark. An
answer was received which indicated
that the boys were not “wantes” in
that State but were merely missing
from home and the father of the
Ziem boy would come and take
them back. In the spirit of mercy
tempered with justice, and consid-
ering the tender age of the youths
the arm of the law in Centre coun-
ty did not enter a prosecution
against the two sheep who had
strayed from the fold.
Fven a highway patrolman has a
heart, (believe it or not) and most
of them are quite large, so the
would-be knights of the road be-
came guests of the Pennsylvania
Motor Patrol at their barracks in
the residence of Mrs. W. C. Coxey,
on East Bishop street. A bath
was in order, administered by Ser-
gant Bear, Corporal Moriarity, and
Private Holmes, clean clothes were
provided by the patrolmen and food
in mountainous quantities was serv-
ed to the hungry lads without charge
by Mrs, Coxey. Nothing was over-
looked for the comfort and pleasure
of the guests and she and “John Law"
enjoyed playing host to the fullest de-
gree. Sergant Bear, in repeating
the story, remarked, “you should
have seen those boys eat.”
Saturday morning at two o'clock
Mr. Frank Ziem, father of the
vounger prodigal, arrived in Belle-
fonte and called at Sheriff Dunlap’s
hotel on the hill only to be inform-
of some kind

|ed that the boys were not register-
ed there but could be found at the
patrol barracks. Mr. Ziem was
cordially greeted by Mr. Coxey who
rather than allow him to begin the
tiresome journey back to New Jer-
sey immediately gave him a bed and
the next morning he departed for
home with the two runaways,
“Frankie and “Jimmy.”
Quite an experience for youths of
such tender years? Yes, but what
can we gain from a. knowledge of
something of this nature.
home is perhaps the best place in
the world but its the last place we
want to be 'til we're so far away
that we can't walk back. I ven-
ture to guess it will be a long time
before “the Jersey Kids" will take
another ride in an ice compartment,
but it always takes the stern reality
of experience to prove to ourselves
just how well off we are, safe in
he harbor of home. And again,
we see that all the world is not
cruel and harsh and even though
we step off the beaten path, some-
one will give us a bath and a meal
and start us off home again.
“Frankie” and “Jimmy” have gone
back home better citizens, and hap-
py; knowing that the uniform of a
policeman doesn't always sigrify
that there isn't a great big heart
beating beneath the coat,
Say. pal. did you ever stop to think
When you're at your play or working,
That often times in the heart of a friend
A sorrow may be lurking,
And a cherry smile and a glad
May help him on his way
And then, perhaps, when you are blue,
He'll pay you back some day.

Bessie Coble, shot and killed her-
self, at noon on Monday, at the home
of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harvey
Coble, at Oak Hall. According to
reports the girl had been a source
of worry to her parents for some
Shortly after eleven o'clock Mon-
day morning Mrs. Coble had a heart
to heart talk with her daughter.
At it's conclusion the girl ran up-
stairs, got a bottle of liquor of
some kind from her trunk and re-
turning down stairs locked herself
in a lower floor room, At 12:20
o'clock members of the family, who
were in the kitchen. heard a shot,
and when Mr. Coble forced the
locked door he was confronted with
his daughter lying on the bed, her
clothing on fire and a revolver tight-
ly clasped in her right hand. An
empty bottle was found on the floor |
by the side of the bed. Mr. Coble
quickly extinguished the girl's cloth-
ing. She was still conscious but
soon lapsed into unconsciousness and
died at 1:15. The revolver with
which she killed herself is alleged to
have been one she had taken froma
Potters Mills man several weeks
previous. When taken from her
hand it contained one empty shell
and a loaded cartridge.
When the young man who Mrs.
Coble upbraided her daughter about |
heard of the suicide he went to the
Coble home and begged for the gun,
declaring he would kill himself, but
of course the gun was not given
Coroner W.R. Heaton was notified
of the suicide and after holding an
inquest the jury returned a verdict
of suicide, In addition to her par-
ents the girl is survived by two
brothers and two sisters. Burial was
made at Boalsburg on Wednesday.
Elmer Breon, of Bellefonte, is the
first Democrat out in the open as a
candidate for Sheriff. His an-
nouncement will be found in another
column of this paper. Mr. Breon, a
carpenter by trade, was a candidate
for the nomination four years ago
but lost out and is going to try it
again this year.
Last week the Watchman, in giv-
ing a possible lineup of contingent
candidates, mentioned the name of
Sinie H. Hoy, but we did not men-
tion the fact that Mr. Hoy is now
the efficient deputy under sheriff H.
E. Dunlap.
Also, in our list, last week, we
gave the name of James Huey as a
possible candidate for County Com-
missioner on the Republican ticket,
when as a matter of fact the only
Huey out for that office is Thomas
M. Huey, our good, old Democratic
friend, and he will be on the Demo-
cratic ticket and not the Republican.
Shortly after eight o'clock, on
Tuesday evening, as Mrs. Paul Eber-
hart was on her way to the Ameri-
can Legion card party, she met a
young man on Howard street, along
the G. Murray Andrews property,
who grabbed her handbag and made
a getaway before she had a chance
to get a good look at him. The
bag cost $9.00 and contained only a
small amount of money in change.
Philip Benner, a young man who
works for Cohen & Co., claims he
was held up, last Saturday evening,
at the corner of Allegheny and
Logan streets, by a masked man
who demanded his pocketbook at the
point of a gun. Benner asserts
that he gave the man his pocket-
back who, after
money, $10.00 gave the pocketbook
back. |

The annual meeting of the stock-
holders of the Bellefonte Trust com-
pany was held on Tuesday, at 11
o'clock. More stockholders were
present at this meeting than at any
previous time. The old board of
directors was re-elected, and are as
follows: J. L. Spangler, J. T. Hen-
ry, N. E. Robb, C. Y, Wagner, D.
M Kline, J. L. Seibert, W. J.
Emerick, L. HL. McMullen, F. L.
Wetzler. The hoard of directors or-
ganized by re-electing the following
officers: J. L. Spangler, president;
C. Y. Wagner, vice president; N. E.
Robb, secretary-treasurer and trust
officer; Earl 8. Orr, assistant secre-
tary-treasurer; Helen R. Williams,
assistant treasurer and assistant
trust officer.
The report of the auditors, Ivan
Walker, Homer P. Barnes and C. Y.
Wagner, who were elected by - the
board of directors to audit the ac-
counts for the year ending Decem-
ber 31, 1930, was presented to the
stockholders, The report was ex-
plained in detail by Ivan Walker
and showed a very healthy growth
for the year, taking into considera-
tion the present business conditions.

The Trust company has no bills pay-
able, no overdrafts and is in the best
financial liquid condition that it
ever has been, Mr. Robb said.
Another asset of very great im-
portance is the number of wills, life
insurance trust agreements and life
insurance partnership trust agree-
ments, totaling more than two mil-
lions of dollars, in its files for fu-
ture settlements. There are, no
doubt, many other such trusts that
have not been placed in its hands
for safekeeping which would be an
additional asset to the institution.
The trust department shows a very
substantial, healthy growth, which
is evidence of the confidence placed
in it by its customers.
After the stockholders meeting a
banquet was served at the Brock-
erhoff house, and there were 113
stockholders and guests present.
The speaker of the day was John W.
Chalfant, an attorney and also vice
president in charge of the trust de-
| partment of the Colonial Trust
company, Pittsburgh. His subject
was “Trusts,” which is a very
voluminous, broad subject.
The music was furnished by Mrs.
Louis S. Schad, Mrs, Russell Blair
and Paul Crust, who gave a very
delightful program of instrumental,
classical music. Many pleasing com-
ments were made and the musicians
are to be highly complimented. M.

“New Moon" promises even more

One of the last appointments made
by Governor Pinchot on the eve of
his induction into office was that of
former Judge Arthur C. Dale, of Belle-
fonte, as chairman of the workman's
compensation board. A belief was
prevalent among Mr. Dale's friends
that he would be given a cabinet
appointment but Mr. Pinchot evi:
dently had too many debts to pay
with such honors. While the ap-
pointment given Mr. Dale has not
the dignity nor quite the salary of
a cabinet position it is one of the
most worth-while of the secondary ap-
pointments at the disposal of the
Governor. The compensation board
is the leading division under the
head of the Department of Labor
and Industry, and the salary of the
chairman is $9,000 a year, or $750
a month. Whether Judge Dale will
move his family to Harrisburg or
continue to make his home in Belle-
fonte if not known at this writing.
Mr. Dale will succeed Paul W.

one years,

A test case will probably be made
in the Centre county courts on the
question of compensation insurance
for volunteer firemen, based on the
claim of Mrs. Bertha Foster, widow
of the late Philip D. Foster, for the
death of her husband on March 21st,
1930, while on his way to a fire at
State College. It will be recalled
that Mr. Foster, apparently in good
health when he left his home, suf-
fered a heart attack while at his
work at the fire and died withina
few minutes. Mr, Foster at the
time was chief marshal of the State
College fire department and his
duties required his attendance at the
State College borough carries
compensation for its firemen, as
required by law, and Mrs. Foster, in
due time put in a claim for com-
pensation. As per schedule of al-
lowances her claim was for $300
funeral expenses and a $3000 death
compensation. The referee of this
district allowed the claim: but the
insurance company carrying the com-
pensation appealed from the decision
of the referee and in due course of
time the case was argued before
the compensation board. Last week
Paul W. Houck, chairman of the
board, handed down a decision af-
firming the award of the referee.
Now, it is understood, the com-
pany carrying the insurance has
decided to appeal from the board's
decision and ask for a court trial.
As the case is from Centre county
it will naturally come up for
in court here. Interest attaches
to the case because it is the first
of the kind to occur in Pennsylvania
and this will be a test case.
The result of the case will be of
interest to all volunteer firemen in
the State.

ed by Professor W. D. Swope, of
the Pennsylvania State College, ad-
dressing several hundred Sheffield
Farms milk producers at a meeting
held Monday night in the court
house at Bellefonte.
Milk from this part of Pennsylva-
nia has been shipped to New York
city only within the past five years,
according to Professor Swope, but
in that time milk shipments have
grown until now more than 300,000
quarts daily are being sent to the
metropolitan area. This milk comes
from over 5000 farms, and requires
the operation of 47 plants.
The necessity of extreme care in
the handling of milk for New York
!city was emphasized by Professor
| Swope in his talk.
‘No other city,”
he said, “has more stringent regula-
tions governing the quality of milk.
For this reason it is necessary that
the farmer should take every pre-
caution in milk production, Milk
must be given every bit as much
care by the farmer as it receives
when it passes to the New York
milk companies.
“Cows,” he pointed out, “must be
kept clean in clean surroundings.
All utensils must be sterilized fre-
quently, and be designed so they
protect the milk that comes in con-
tact with them. Milk at all times
should be kept below 50 degrees
