Before us lies a copy of a long
communication which Bond C. and
Ray E. White, owners of the proper-
ty built specially for the post office
here, have just mailed to Congress-
man J. Mitchell Chase.
It is in the nature of a protest
against the erection of a new public
building in Bellefonte at this time
and sets forth the facts that the
Whites have a large investment in
the building they erected for the
government under ihe assurance that
it would be used as a post office for
the ten year term for which it was
leased, two years ago.
The White Bros. knew at the time
they entered into the contract with
the government that government
leases are all one-sided in that Un.
cle Sam can abrogate them when.
ever he pleases. However, they built
under the specifications of the Post
Office Department, equipped the
building with furniture approved by
it and made many other provisions
they would not have made had they
not been personally assured by post.
al inspectors that their building
would be occupied for the term of
the lease.
While to some the protest of the
White Brothers might look “like cry-
ing over spilt milk” we do not view
it in that way. They probably knew
at the time they started building
that Congress had already voted a
public building for Bellefonte. In the
face of such knowledge it is not to
be assumed that they went ahead
with their investment without pretty
strong personal assurance from some
good source to the effect that its
erection would be deferred at least
until the expiration of the contract
they entered into.
In any event, since they built the
building more to please the govern-
ment than with an eye to its adapt-
ability to succeeding tenants it ap-
pears to us that Uncle Sam would be
doing a very unfair thing by leaving
them “holding the bag.”
Bellefonte wants everything she
can get. But does she want a new
post office at this time at such a
sacrifice to two useful young busi.
ness men or under the contemptible
practice of condemnation that would
take homes away from people who
have every right to believe them in-
Ten years are a very short time.
When they have run in all probability
very much more desirable sites than
any so far offered will be available.
Rather than distress anyone the
Watchman feels that the spirit of
Bellefonte would be expressed better
by waiting than by oppressing. It
has no obligation to take up the
White Brothers plaint but since it
has always been fearless, frank and
fair it hesitates not to say that it
believes the government would be
giving them a dirty deal if it were
to do anything but live up to the
spirit of its contract with them, no
matter what the letter might be.
Since the above was written we
have been informed that the post
office here has received advice from
the Department that its agents will
not come back to Bellefonte to make
another survey of sites. They have
made two visits and since that is all
they do in any case the next move
is up to Bellefonte, itself.

Work was started, on Monday
morning, by A. and J. B. Fogel and
the Granis Construction company on
the second half of the mountain
highway from Port Matilda to
Philipsburg, which includes that sec-
tion from the “Devil's Elbow" to the
Philipsburg borough line. The new
highway will uot follow the old
Halfmoon road for much of the way
but will be built on a new route
which will eliminate most of the
curves and shorten the distance ap-
approximately six miles in length
and there will be two bridges.
The contractor will rush the work
as fast as possible and will use on |
the job eighteen trucks, four steam
shovels, four tractors, four bull-
dozers, a cement mixer and eight
steam rollers, as well as the smaller
equipment. When the job is rightly
under way about seventy-five men
will be employed, local labor to be
used as far as possible.

will hold their reunion at Hecla Park
on Sunday, August 16. It will be a

| HERRON.—James W. Herron, su-
perintendent of the Pennsylvania In-
| dustrial School, at Huntingdon, died
‘quite suddenly of a heart attack at
2.30 o'clock last Friday morning.
Apparently in the best of health he
played golf on Thursday afternoon,
on the course of the Huntingdon
Country club. At the seventeenth hole
he complained of feeling tired and
with several other men reclined on
the turf for a few minutes. He
completed the course, went to the
club house, took a shower bath and
ate a hearty dinner. At home, that
evening, he and Mrs. Herron enter-
tained company until well on to
eleven: o'clock and after the guests
had deported he remarked to his
wife that he never felt better
than he did at that time. Along
about two o'clock in the morning he
awoke with what he believed an at-
tack of indigestion and Mrs. Herron
gave him a glass of bicarbonate of
soda. It failed to bring relief and
as the pain rapidly became more in-
tense he asked his wife to call the
family physician. She did so but
the doctor being out on another case
she called another physician. She
walked to the window to watch for
his coming, and while standing there
her husband died.
Mr. Herron was a son of George
and Martha Cordilla Potter Herron,
and was born in Pittsburgh on June
30th, 1883, hence was 48 years and
one month old. He was educated
in the public schools of Pittsburgh,
graduating at the High school in
1901. Shortly thereafter he went
to work for the Westinghouse Elec-
tric company but relinquished that
job to accept a position in the office
of the city engineer in Pittsburgh.
At the same time he attended night
school at the Carnegie Institute of
Technology, majoring in the civil
engineering course, and in June,
1912, he was awarded the degree of
Bachelor of Science.
In July of the same year John
Francies offered him the position of
chief engineer of construction of the
new western penitentiary buildings,
at Rockview and he accepted, com-
ing to Centre county. He remain-
ed there over ten years and had
complete charge of the engineering
work on the construction of all of
the first buildings erected at that
institution. About eight years ago,
following the death of T. B. Patton,
he was appointed superintendent of
the Industrial School, at Huntingdon,
more generally known as the
Huntingdon reformatory, and on tak-
ing charge he promptly instituted
various changes and reforms which
have brought that institution to a
high plane of usefulness in reform-
ing the criminal tendencies of youth.
His engineering ability was also
manifested in the remodeling of
most of the old buildirs as well as
ORVIS.—Fullowing an illness with
an affection
dated back to last November Mrs.
Mary L. Orvis, wife of former Judge
Ellis L. Orvis, passed away at her
home on Curtin street, Bellefonte,
at 7 o'clock last Friday morning.
Her maiden name was Mary Low-
rie Lyon. A daughter of S. Stew-
art and Ann Valentine Lyon she was
born at the family farm homestead,
“Hazelwood,” on September 19th,
1863, hence was not quite 68 years
old. While yet a girl her father
built the house, on Curtin street,
Bellefonte, now occupied by Mrs.
John Porter Lyon, and moved his
family here, and Mrs. Orvis was
educated at the Bellefonte Academy.
Evincing a talent for vocal music
she took a course in the Laefson
Conservatory of Music, Philadelphia,
and for many years was among the
leaders in vocal music in Bellefonte.
She was a member of the Presby-
terian church and the Woman's
Club, of Bellefonte. Her greatest
efforts, however, were concentrated
in her home life.
On Christmas day, 1884, she mar-
ried Ellis L. Orvis, at that time a
young lawyer but who later became
Judge of Centre county. He sur-
vives with one daughter, Mrs. A. B.

ter, Anna Valentine Orvis, married
Capt. Clarence Lemont Arnold, of
the United States navy, but she pass-

dren of Mrs. Orvis’ only brother,

late home, at 2.30 o'clock on Mon-
day afternoon, by Rev. W. C. Thomp-
son, burial being made in the Union

BATCHELER.— Frederick Batche-
ler, a native of Philipsburg, died
quite suddenly, at his home in
Chicago, Ill, on Tuesday of last
week, of a heart attack.
He was a son of the late Simler
B. and Mary B. Batcheler and was
born at Philipsburg on April 15th,
1890, hence was in his 42nd year.
He was a graduate of the Philips-
‘burg High school and the Pennsyl-
vania State College, class of 1912in
electrical engineering. About a year
!after his graduation he located in
Michigan and six years ago moved

Stover-Meyer (or Moyer) families
of Central Pennsylvania was held, at
the Woodward Cave park on Satur-
day, August 1, at which time and
place about 300 persons, descendants
of the early Stover-Meyer pioneers
and their families, spent the day in
social friendship and reunion.
During the day the Aaronsburg
band, whose membership is largely
of Stover and Meyer lineage, play-
ed a number of excellent selections
from their repertoire of band music.
Owing to unavoidable circumstan-
ces several of the speakers were un-
able to be present, but an excellent
address, “The Spirit of the Pioneer,”
was delivered by Herbert E. Stover
A. M, principal of the Lewisburg
schools, after which a sumptuous
dinner was partaken by all.
In the afternoon a number of con-
tests and awarding of prizes was
conducted by Mrs. Randall W. Mey-
er, of Coburn.
The registered attendance this
year was the largest yet recorded,
but could have been much larger
considering the number of descend-
ants of these two clans, a number
estimated at from 1200 to 1500 in-
dividuals living in the central part
of this State, The attendance was,
of course, from Centre and adjoin-
ing ccunties, but several of the clan
from the State of Ohio were pres-

the clan being found in practically
all the avocations of life.
Two children, Louise and John
Slack Jr., represented the eighth
generation from the original Meyer
who emigrated from Germany about
two hundred years ago. They also
represent the Stover lineage by mar-
riage, and are also the youngest of
‘a living five generation group from
the intermarriage of the Stover and
Meyer families.
The time and plac: of the next
reunion will be at Woodward Cave,
jon Saturday, August 6th, 1932.
Officers elected for the ensuing
year are as follows: President, Herb-
ert J. Stover, Coburn; vice president,
Robert W. Meyer, Rebersburg; Sec-
‘retary, I. A. Meyer, Coburn; treas-
‘urer, A. S. Stover, Aaronsburg; Stov-
‘er historian, Rev. J. J. Weaver, Pen- |

one or two daughters, of whom John,
the oldest, was probably born in the
old country. Jacob, the second son,

est son of the family, married Anna
Maria Shaffer. They were the par-

ration and as soom. as it is received
a meeting will be held to form a per-

and get things in shape for opening
a business establishment. Those in
‘charge believe that this can be ac-
complished in the next six weeks or
two months. Permanent quarters
have not been selected, although sev-
eral locations are under consideration.
Sufficient stock has been sub.

as assurance of success of the new

due to Miss Helen Farrar, formerly

For a year or more Bellefonte
council has had under consideration
the laying of a sewer down Spring
creek, from a point just below the
big spring to several hundred feet
below the Lamb street bridge.
Early last spring council had bor-
ough engineer Shattuck draw plans
for the sewer which were submitted
to the State Board of Health as well
as the Water and Power Resources
Board, and at the time they com-
mended the project but suggested
some changes in the plans. The
changes were made but up to this
time a permit to lay the sewer has
not been granted.
On Tuesday afternoon district
engineer M. J. Barrick, of Williams-
port, with a man from the Harris-
burg office, was in Bellefonte and
went over the plans in detail with
most of the councilmen. They ap-
prove the laying of the sewer but
suggested that it be laid under Wa-
ter street instead of in the creek.
To this, of course, council demurred.
To lay a sewer pipe from the spring
to the Lamb street bridge under
Water street would be a most cost-
ly undertaking because of the depth
the pipe would have to be put; and
it would also badly interfere with

rick, however, agreed to take the
matter up with the board in Harris-
burg and see if a permit will be
granted to lay the sewer in the
