Paper Feature of Society Meeting
The paper was the feature of the
telephone society's meeting and its
various phases were discussed by Ed
gar Z. Wallower, superintendent of
th> electric light company; Robert W.
Hoy, commercial manager of the same
concern; H. P. Porter, the Bell's plant
superintendent; J. F. Hope, plant su
pervisor; G. S. Reinoehl, division man
ager and S. S. Eberts, district man
Officers were elected by the society
as follows: 13. G. Mateer, Altoona,
president; L. B. Carson, city, vice
president; W. A. Kershner, city, sec
retary; R. M. Leonard, city, treasur-*;
R. E. Smith, local manager, Lancas

Just prior to Mr. Tripp's talk G. E.
Gable, copy manager of the Bell's
publicity department at Philadelphia,
drew a lot of amusing sketches in
crayon of the men in ihe audience
and of the officials.
The keynote of Mr. Tripp's paper
was "service" to the public and the
d<--elopmept, of this idea among the
successful utility corporations of the
country was strikingly illustrated and
emphasized throughout his talk.
The Effect of the Commission
The effect of the establishing of the
public service commission of its ad
vantages to both public and corpora
tion were pointed out and commented
upon. Another feature of Mr. Tripp's
paper was the figures he quoted on
the results obtained by the Pennsyl
vania railroad in 1913 to Insure
safety of patrons and employes and
which Mr. Tripp characterized as "the
greatest record ever made by a util
ity corporation in its service to its
"Not a single passenger out of 111,-
000,000 carried by the Pennsylvania
Railroad Company in 1913 was killed
in a train accident," quoted Mr. Tripo
from the Pennsy's information bul
letin. "Reports for the past six years
show that almost 600,000,000 passen
gers—a number equal to more than
one-third of the whole world's popu
lation —have been carried by the
Pennsylvania railroad and but sixteen
of them lost their lives in accidents
to trains; nine were killed in one acci
"Maximum Service: Minimum Price"
Mr. Tripp In emphasizing the de
velopment of public utility service
compared the present day needs and
requirements with those of the days
of the Inventor of the telephone and
the organization of the Bell Company.
"To-day." asked Mr. Tripp, "what do
we find? A demand upon every util
ity company to furnish the maximum
of service at the minimum price."
The change was not brought wholly
by the opinions, criticisms or requests
of the consumers, the electric com
pany's head pointed out, but by the
companies themselves. Thus the re
sponsibility of the utility company
was inorea&ed. A check of some kind
was necessary to guard against condi
tions which might have i continued.
Demands would have become so In
sistent and without substantial reason
and the companies would have in
i creased their facilities to such a do-
COMBING WON'T RID
I HI OF DANDRUFF
j The Easiest and Best Way Is
to Dissolve It
The only sure way-to get rid of
dandruff is to dissolve It, then you
destroy it entirely. To do this, get
about four ounces of ordinary liquid
arvon; apply it at night when retir
ing; use enough to moisten the scalp
and rub it in geijtly with the finger
Do this to-night, and by morning
most if not all of your dandruff will
be gone, and three or four more appli
cations will completely dissolve and
entirely destroy every single sign and
trace of it, no matter how much dan
druff you may have.
You will find, too, that all Itching
and digging of the scalp will stop at
once, and your hair will be fluffy,
lustrous, glossy, silky and soft, and
look and feel a hundred times better.
If you want to preserve your hair
do by all means get rid of dandruff'
! for nothing destroys the hair more
quickly. It not only starves the hair
and makes it fall out. but It makes it
stringy, straggly, dull, dry, brittle and
lifeless, and everyone notices It. You
can get liquid arvon at any drug store
It is Inexpensive and never falls to do
