statement the county has a bonded

notes exceeding $111,000, or a total
of $211,000. The Commissioners re-
duced the millage this year from 10

that there is actually no money

There is a pretty kettle of fishin
lege and officials of the borough are
appears that two years or more
ago the borough annexed on outly-
ing district known as “Manor Hills.”
At the municipal election in 1929
Capt. E. E. Lederer, who gave his
residence as Manor Hills, was elect-
ed burgess.
Later residents of the annexed
portion protested against being tak-
en into the borough and took the
matter to court. Recently Judge
Fleming rendered a decision in
which he sustained the contention of
the protestants and decided that the
annexation was not legal. In the
meantime Capt. Lederer has been
filling the office of burgess, has
signed ordinances and official bor-
ough papers and the question now
before State College people is, will
his official acts stand the test ot
law ?
Tax duplicates which the past two
years have contained the names of
residents of the Manor Hills section
are being changed and relocated in
College township. What the out-
come will be remains to be seen.
The grand jury for the September
term of court met, on Tuesday
morning. Andrew Koshko, of Clar-
ence, was appointed foreman. Dis-
trict attorney John G. Love had
seventy-two bills of indictment for
presentation to the jury, though it
is just possible some of them will
be held over until the next term of
court. The quarter sessions docket
for the September term contains
205 separate returns, the largest list
ever known in Centre county, the
largest heretofore being 188, As
most of the cases are petty mis-
demeanors, it is quite possible that

In a statement given the press, a
week ago, by Secretary of the Com-
monwealth Beamish Centre county
was listed as one of twenty-one
counties which had mot secured per-
mits to comply with the law regu-
lating the ownership and carrying
of firearms.
It might be true that the county
commissioners did not get a supply
of permits from the printery desig-
nated by Secretary Beamish, but
they got the permits, just the same
and turned them over to Sheriff
Dunlap with authorization to issue
same to any and all applicants who,
in his judgment, had sufficient
reasons for carrying a gun. To
date the sheriff has issued only 26
permits, which looks as if this is a |
law-abidding community.
