Under circumstances particularly sad John H. Barnett, a student in civil engineering, died in the hos pital at Bellefonte, early Thursday morning. On Tuesday he was stricken with an acute attack of ap pendicitis and Dr. John I. Robin son had him taken to the hospital at once. The patient would not consent to an operation until his father arrived from Kane, Pa., and even though it was thought that would be too late Drs. Hayes, of Bellefonte, and Robinson perform ed the operation on Wednesday. It was successful and the patient seemed to have a fair chance of re covery until suddenly that night a clot of blood that had formed in one of the arteries caused a collapse that resulted in his death. Mr. Barnett was in his second year at State and was a popular member of his class, as well as gen erally esteemed by the student body. His remains were taken to his home at Kane for interment. i Personals, ! /ft \l> —Arthur W. McClure, ex-’os returned to college last week for a short visit. —Wm.
