Sunday August 9th the Centre
county past grands association, I
O. O. F.,, will have charge of the
religious service at the Sunbury
home for orphans of the order.
The past grands association is
sponsoring a huge visitation to the
home on this date and is inviting
all Odd Fellows, their families and
their friends to join the motor pro-
cession which will form in Centre
Hall at 9.00 A. M. and proceed un-
der escort of detail
patrol to Sunbury.
Cars from Blanchard, Howard,
Rebersburg, Coburn and Millheim will
join the procession at Millheim.
At 2.45 the regular Sunday relig-
jous service will be held. The
speaker will be the Chaplain J. H.
Frizzell, of State College. A men's
chorus under the direction of J. M.
Hartswick and an orchestra directed
by W. E. Wion will be features of
this service.
Regular Sunday school service pre-
cedes this service and one may at-
tend and receive attendance credits
if desired.
Odd Fellowship provides many
splendid homes over the world for
its old folks and orphans and per-
haps one of the finest is the Cen-
tral Pennsylvania I. O. O. F. home
for orphans at Sunbury. Their
famous boys band has entertained in
Centre county on different occasions.
This trip offers an excellent op-
portunity to visit the home, enjoy
an occasion of good fellowship, hear
a good sermon and music and a
beautiful drive over some of Penn-
sylvania’s best roads.
Several weeks ago the service was
in charge of the lodges of Reading
and there were 175 cars in the pro-
cession from Reading.

you do not have a car and want to

According to a news dispatch from
Ocean City, N. J., summer residents
of that resort have declared war on
week-end parties that go there evi-
dently without thought of rest for
themselves or concern as to what
chance others have to get any.
Early Sunday morning Ocean City
police started a raid on all parties
that might be disturbing the slum-
bers of others and in one of them a

Granger and Hugh L. Murphy, both
of Meadville, were enroute to Grang-

county, the left rear tire on their
automobile blew out, the driver lost
control of the car and as it turned
over on its side both men were
thrown through the top of the car.
Murphy was so badly injured that
he died while being taken to the
Philipsburg State hospital. Granger
was removed to the hospital where
it was found that he had sustained
serious injuries of the head and
