Schacffer, United States naval reserves, was organized early in the year and In January started from New York, passed down the Atlantic coast and then headed westward over the southern trail for tho Pacific coast. Arriving nt San Francisco It started the return tour through tho northern tier of states, zigzagging up and down until It finally reached Maine. Again leaving the Atlantic coast it came Mouthwestward down through tho New England states, through New York state and entered Pennsylvania by way of Scranlon and Wllllamsport. The fleet came to Altoona from Har- rlsburg where It WHS given a welcome by Mayor George Hovertcr. C. Roy Burket, manager, and Frank Culp, salesman, of the local branch met the fleet there, was accorded a welcome by Commander Schaeffer and accompanied it westward to Altoona. Tho caravan got a hearty welcome at Lew- iHtown and Huntingdon, arriving at the latter place at 4.30 o'clock. Mayor John J. McMurray and a reception party composed of City Coun- ::llmen Samuel B. Taylor and Bence Keatley, City Controller William T. Canan, Congressman J. Banks Kurtz, Republican County Chairman William H. Orr, C. E.

Despite tho Inclemency of the weather thousands of people viewed the Silver fleet as it traversed tho William Penn entrance and route through the city, its run up Eleventh avenue and thence by way ot Union and Broad avenues to the. National Motor company's garage at Llyswcn and then back to the city and the Penn-Alto hotel where Mayor McMurray, Cpuncll- man Keatley, Controller Canan, Congressman Kurtz and Mr. Orr signed tho big scroll book for Commander Schaeffer.

MULLEN Glowing Tribute to Late William F. Gable Included In Writings of H. Luther Frees of Reading, Fa. REAL ESTATE MEN MUST GET LICENSE Robert W. Semcnow, administrator of the real estate license law under the department of public instruction of the state, will be the speaker at the luncheon forum of the Altoona Real Estate board to be held tomorrow noon at the Penn-Alto hotel. Mr, Semenow will go into detail In explaining the provisions of the law that will go into effect Jan. 1, 1930, ,nd under which every real estate operator In tho state will be required to conduct his business under Its provisions. Beginning Jan. 1 real estate dealers as well as salesmen will be required to pay a fee of $10 to the state to procure a license. This license will only be Issued after certain regulations and requirements of the law have been met by those Individuals. Mr. Semenow will also tell how tho state will enforce the act and impose penalties for violations. Those In attendance will be given opportunity following the address to ask any questions concerning the law. Mr. Semenow Is well known to many of the Altoona Real Estate board members, he having appeared on convention programs at both state and national conventions.

That some property owners in Sinking valley are making unreasonable demands of the county in the way of damages in connection with the highway improvement project there, was Indicated at the meeting of the Blair County Motor club last evening at the Penn-Alto hotel. It was stated that the county commissioners in their adjustments are finding those who will suffer the most damage much more reasonable than others whose land is practically valueless and will thus suffer but little actual damage. The fear was expressed that the unreasonable demands might jeopardize the whole project and cause tho commissioners to abandon It. The club authorized the sending of an inquiry to the state highway department asking for an Interpretation of the lav/ regarding the passing of cars on the descent of hill. The law is clear enough In the ban on such passing within t'.ie lines in the ascent, but the clubmen wish to have a definite ruling on passing after the top of the hill and there is a good range of vlsabillty. Attention was called to the fact that there are numerous violations of the law which prohibits parking within twenty-five feet of stop signs. Elwood S. Raugh, chairman of the good r"oads committee, reported that as soon as stop signs can be secured by the city, Twenty-second street will bo boulevarded from Fifth to Pleos- The club has been the boulevard pro- ant Valley avenue, active in support c ject. It was also reported that' many and stop signs are important places one-way missing streets from throughout the city and the matter will be placed before the mayor. The club went on record in cooperation of the movement to secure the improvement of the road to Gallitzln by way of the Horseshoe Curve. The purpose of the project ia to make available to tourists the great scenic ittractlons through the Kittannlng Point valley where the Horseshoe ~!urve is situated. • The club approved the payment of a number of towing bills and voted to continue the operation of a service car on nearby highways on all heavy ^raffle days, including holidays and Sundays, Joseph F. Aurandt of this city, Charles Aurandt of Claysburg, Mrs. Clyde Piper und Mrs. C. M, Leap of Lilly, fourteen grandchildren, one great- grandchild and several brothers and sisters.

Mullen, manager of the Al- oona Chamber of Commerce, has re- elved a fine gift in the form of a jook of poems, which was presented him by H. Luther' Frees, veteran newspaperman of Reading and also amous as a speaker of note. The poems were penned by Mr. 'rees, whose journalistic endeavors mve covered a long period of years n Reading.

The poem is a glowing tribute to the store founder, Mr. Gable, and this extract, contained in Mr. Frees' recently mblished book, follows: 'I take my privilege of years and read this friend of mine; Read him as one whose scope of life looks past the dollar sign; Read him with earnest love of all, that truth and right impart, ) For nature gave him ample'form to hold the ampler heart. 'Read him as one for whom life holds an obligation strong, Of love, and gift, and grace of deed, and stalwart hate of wrong; Read him as one who .gives this creed its freest, fullest sway, 'All you can hold in your cold dead hands, is what you have given way.' 'Read him as one who places worth beyond the mask of grace; Read him as one who holds the man above the pomp of place; Read him with scorn cant, and sham, and outworn thought, and then In brightest text read him as one, who loves his fellow men."

PHILIPSBURG, Nov. 5.—Hunters In the Centre-Clearfleld region have had exceptionally fine sport during the opening days of game season. Lewis Hohnka, residing' here and who has been most successful in past years in hunting big and small game, motored - to the foot of Snow Shoe mountain yesterday. In lesa than three hours he was back home with a twelve-pound wild* turkey over his 'shoulder. He was in the woods only about twenty minutes when he got the shot at the turkey. 1 Of all small game species, rabbits appear 'most plentiful, and the killing has "been heavy, though it. is difficult to obtain a fairly accurate estimate of the number slaughtered. It is expected that when the game commission gets its reports from licensed hunters it will be found that rabbit-killing in the region has been the heaviest since the commission inaugurated the system of. checking up on kills. Albert Kerfoot and two sons, Jud and Jack of Fhilipsburg, accompanied by William Hassinger and Paul Gordon of Bellefonte, returned Saturday night from a rabbit hunt in the Deer creek section .of Clearfteld county. They'had twenty-eight rabbits. HuntingTn the Flatrock section of Centre county on Saturday three Philipsburg residents, John McTigue, Donald Stover, and! Fred Sawtelle, each bagged the limit of rabbits. Their string of fifteen bunnies made a fine exhibit. Though he was not hunting for bear, having gone after the male rlngneck pheasants and rabbits, Barney Bratton of Sandy Ridge killed a. bear weighing 170 pounds. The animal was encountered while Bratton was hunting along the old Tyrone pik^ now not much used for traffic except by families living along the route. He killed the bear at close range. Clyde Way and Lynn Boal, residing at the Bailey settlement, near Curwensville, killed a 250 pound bear in the woods near their home. Way and Lynn are boys. When they learned of the presence of the animal in the vicinity, they started out prepared to make a kill. A couple of -well directed shots ended bruin's career. The only other bear kill reported in Clearfleld county during the first two days of the season comes from the Blgler region. Kenneth Pearce, residing at Bigler, shot a . black cub weighing about 125 pounds. It was fat, glossy and in good condition. It was shot near the Brack Albert farm, about half a mile from Blgler. • G—A—p—L—E—'—S DEMONSTRATION OF RADIO WAVERS THIS WEEK The demonstrator In charge will Instruct you in waving and show you how to put a wave In long or short bobbed hair.
