    Bellefonte, Pa., July 17, 1931.
Wilson T. Charles, who for the
past thirteen years has been train-
master on the Pennsylvania railroad,
at Tyrone, has been piaced on the
retired list after 46 years and 10
months service.
He was born at Milesburg on Au-
gust 19th, 1865, hence is not yet 66
years of age. As a young man he
learned telegraphy and when but
nineteen years old began work for
the railroad company as an operator,
working on the Bald Eagle branch
and also on the the Bellefonte and
Snow Shoe. In 1887 he went to Ty-
rone as an operator and two years
later was made assistant train dis-
patcher.. On January 1, 1900, he was
promoted to train dispatcher. In
1908 he was made assistant train-
master; four years later he had the
duties of division operator added to
his work, and in 1918, when R. B.
Freeman was sent to Philadelphia,
Mr. Charles became trainmaster.
Assistant trainmaster in 1889, at
the time of the Johnstown flood, he
recalls the thirty days following
that awful catastrophe as being the
most strenuous in his entire rail-
road career. With miles of track
on the Middle division washed out
all trains were routed over the Bald
Eagle valley and he didn't have
time to read a newspaper.
He had the distinction of being
train master on the old Tyrone
division when they had the greatest
movement of any single track rail-
road in the world. On one day they
moved 2800 cars over the division,
not to say anything of the large
number of passenger trains. There
were no delays, whatever, and every-
thing about this super railroad day
was carried out with clock-like pre-
cision. J. K. Johnston, of Tyrone,
now retired, was superintendent at
the time and J. L. Downes, now train
dispatcher in the Altoona offices, was
then chief train dispatcher. It was
a day that will long be remembered
as a banner movement day.
Mr. Charles was a member of the
building committee of the splendid
PRRYMNC A budng at
Tyrone, and had personal super-
vision of the wiring. He also had
personal supervision of the building
of one of the first and most com-
plete electric World Series score

The State Game Commission, ap-
pointed ten days ago by Governor
Pinchot, met in Harrisburg, last
Thursday, and reorganized by elect-
ing Ross L. Loffler, of McKeerport,
The board took no action on an
open season for antlerless deer but
some changes were made in the bag
limits and seasons for game birds,
as follows:
Male ringnecked pheasants, two a
day and six a season from Novem-
ber 1 to 15, instead of November 1
to 30, as last year.
Ruffed grouse season changed to
the first three days of the first two
weeks in November and the last
three days for the third and fourth
week in November. Last year’s sea-
son was November 1 to 8. The bag
limit was fixed at two a day and
twelve during the season.
The season on quail was fixed as
November 1 to 15, instead of No-
vember 1 to 30, as last year,
The Commission approved the pur-
chase of 50,000 cotton tail rabbits,
2000 snowshoe rabbits, 2000 Hunga-
rian partridges, 300 raccoons and 500
fox squirrels for stocking purposes.
The kill in the State during the
1930 hunting season has finally been
summed up as follows: Five elks,
20,115 male deer, 5979 antlerless
deer, 707 bear, 3,068,019 rabbits, 20,-
602 hares, 456,523 squirrels, 48,190
raccoons, 2,374 wild turkeys, 83,787
ruffed grouse, 251,362 ringneck pheas-
ants, 152,958 quail, 71,402 woodcock
and other shore birds, 63,784 water-
fowl, 250,035 blackbirds.
The weight of the total number of
|game killed amounted to 5,881 tons.
| Despite warnings about the care-
less handling of firearms, 350 hunt-
ing accidents occurred during the
| past season, of which 59 were fatal
and 291 non-fatal. Of the fatal ac-
cidents, 23 were self-inflicted and
[33 inflicted by others. Of the non-
fatal accidents 75 were self-inflicted
and 214 inflicted by others. The ma-
jority of accidents occurred during
the small game season.
Of the faial accidents, 15 were
caused by rifles, 43 by shotguns and
‘one by a revolver. Of the non-fatal
accidents, 56 were caused by rifles,
233 by shotguns and two by revol-
‘accidents seems excessive, the pro-
| portion is comparatively small when
|it is considered that 600,000 hunters
| were afield.

Secretary Mellon touched foreign
shores to put the “finishing
touches” upon the debt holiday. It
has hurled American voices across
the seas to be heard as distinctly
as a local call. It has cost a lot
of money, but it has accelerated
the moratorium project materially.
President Hoover picks up his
desk telephone and informs the
White House operators he wants
to speak with Mr. Mellon.
The secretary is on the other
end usually within five minutes.
But what is just as much to the
point, so are the American Am-
bassadors in London, Paris, Berlin
and Rome.

Hoover and his advisers foresaw

President in the negotiations.
