WOMEN VOTERS ARE WELL ENTERTAINED Mrs. Charles Reed ts Hostess on Anniversary and Mrs. Large, Sister, of Mrs. Hoover, Is Honor Quest. Mrs. Charles Reed, president of the Hollidaysburg League of Women Voters, entertained the members of he league and some friends at a tea t her home in Hollidaysburg Friday afternoon from 3 to B. It was a most elightful occasion, featured! by two ,rery Informative addresses on time- y subjects, music and an original haracter sketch whose humor was irovocatlve of a round of applause. Mrs. Jean Henry Large, sister of. Mrs. Herbert Hoover, wife of the resident of the United States, was a guest of honor. The speakers were Miss Ruth Forsht, attorney-at-law, of Altoona, and Miss Nellie Berg of the Hollidaysburg High school faculty. Miss Evelyn Oler, who appeared in he regalia dear to the comic supplement caricatures of the militant uffragette, gave several readings In a very effective manner. Mrs. A. L. 3arothers and her daughter. Miss ?helma Carothers, sang a duet in a manner which elicited well-merited :vidence of appreciation. The function was by way of celebration of the tenth anniversary of he right of franchise to women. Symbolizing the anniversary idea, the hostess displayed a beautiful birthday cake decorated with ten candles. Two of the cs,ndles, she explained, represented by proxy Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt, who is personally cnown to Mrs. Reed, and Mrs. Herbert Hoover. Mrs. Reed asked that Mrs. Large present the compliments of the local league, as assembled on .his occasion, to her sister, Mrs. iioover. Sprays of apple blossoms and bowls of pansles gave a festive air to the iving and dining rooms. Mrs. Kanode and Mrs. W. R. Palmer poured and Mrs. J. W. Stitzel, Mrs. R. R. Potter and Mrs. F. X. Ertl served. Mrs. *eed, who is always the ideal hostess, njected an air of charming informally, which made the affair very en- TRAFFIC LIGHTS JAM SUNDAY AFTERNOON Duncansvllle borough officials sponsored another traffic jam in the vicinity of the junction of the Sixth avenue- Duncansvlllc road with the William Penn highway at Thirteenth street and Third avenue, yesterday afternoon, when for the second successive Sunday afternoon the automatic traffic lights were switched into use for a couple of hours. Lone lines of motor cars formed on each side of red lights each time they came on and these lines often failed to get across the intersection when the necessary green "go" light flashed on. After this condition was in force for a couple of hours, a somewhat shorter period than on the previous Sunday afternoon, they wefe switched off and the William Penn highway once more >ecame a "through" traffic street and Sixth avenue road traffic obeyed the stop sign, with less traffic congestion. Motorists who are acquainted with he street arrangement in Duncans- rille made use of side streets in ivoiding the intersection guarded by he traffic lights or the lines of wait- ng cars. Hundreds of automobiles 'cut" the traffic lights during their eriod of operation. Borough council akes the position that the traffic ights protect pedestrians during traffic peaks, It Is said. ioyable. / Miss Forsht made an able speech on the subject of "Juvenile Delinquency." She pointed out ways where- jy tho League of Women Voters could help to eradicate those conditions which lead to delinquency. While many cases are traceable to sub-normal mentality, delinquency is by no neans confined to these unfortunates. Over-indulgtnce and laxity in parental discipline frequently are responsible :or mal-adjustments of otherwise jright children to normal social conditions. The public owes the children an environment which fosters good character development., ^To this end we need legislation .v/'hich has for its aim the proper education and care for the child's bef'J interests. Back of egislatlon, we must turn our eyes on the lawmakers. • It behooves the league and voters n to study the candidates fbr office. We should analyze who they are and what they are, and whether their past life is such as to satisfy us of the sincerity of their protestations in favor of reform legislation. It is our duty to Our country and to the children, our greatest assets In the future, to see to it that we select candidates who will stand back, heart and soul, and without reservation or equivocation of whatever reform platform they advocate. Miss Berg, in a delightfully entertaining way, gave some interesting data on "Pioneer Suffragists." While In their day, these women were derided as freaks, they suffered, fought, and all but bled and died for a cause, Whose beneficent results the women of today are enjoying with scarcely a thought of what it cost. She sketched briefly the high lights in the lives and careers of Susan B. Anthony, Dr. Anna Howard Shaw, Carrie Chapman Catt, Mary A. Livermore, Lucy Stone Blackwell and others. Miss Berg pointed out that the work of these women shows that all great economic reforms are evolved by means of agitation, education, followed in natural sequence, by legislation. Mrs. S. Carothers very beautifully sang "To a Wild Rose." There \ is no question, but that all who were present at the tea, went away with a feeling that they were greatly benefited. It not only servec as an interesting social event, but gave much food for thought on subjects of civic enterprise. GET PERMANENT QUAUTEBS. Temporarily quartered in a Green wood home for some time past, the local detachment of state police, re cently assigned to this district, is now permanently established with head quarters in the A. Fuoss residence in Greenwood. The detachment formerly was located at the home of J. I. Par ker, near the Greenwood intersection Corporal William R. Hanna is . in charge assisted by Privates S. J.

Alton Shroyer, aged 23, of 2805 Oak avenue, a corporal in the local nationa guard cavalry unit, suffered a hea< injury Saturday afternoon when he was thrown from one of the cavalry unit horses while riding at the Driv ing park. He was admitted, uncon scious, to the Mercy hospital follow ing the accident and did not regain consciousness until yesterday morning His condition is good. regarded as fairly HOPE BUSINESS CRISB IS QYER (Continued from Page 1.) of 1928, and compared With 3.9 per cent in 1929. There is no doubt that the admln- .stration Is nervous about the business situation. . A continued drop In the market would, it is feared, mean a continued loss of confidence. Some- low or another the public has accepted the notion that the president can steer the country to economic prosperity and the rather optimistic speech which Mr. Hoover delivered ast week, together with a reduction of rediscount rate, both of which were heralded as favorable signs, have now aeen more or less weakened in their effects by the behavior of security prices. The truth, of course, is that the administration is viewing matters in a longer perspective than is the stock market. The government is looking for better conditions in the autumn while the security prices reflect the immediate past or the immediate fu- ire. The theory that the second quarter will be only slightly better than the first quarter, but that the autumn of the year should see an improvement on the first six months and' that the last quarter will see a substantial improvement Jn business, is tenaciously held by government officials, not a few of whom admit, however, that the wish is father to the thought and that, unless there is a decided improvement In business the country is apt to vote in a Democratic congress as an evidence of discontent. Widespread unemployment In a campaign year has always been associated with a negative verdict at the polls against the President Hoover troubles, but none would be as- disconcerting as to have the country theoretically vote lack of confidence through election of a Democratic congress. Notwithstanding the perennial debate as to what a president has to do with the economic ups and downs of a country, the administration has been compelled to accept political responsibility for things as they are. This is due partly to the promises of the last campaign, and partly to the fact that the president himself took the leadership the business situation that followed the stock market crash. Confidence prevails that the, country will work out of its difficulties toward the end of 1930 and during 1931, but from a political viewpoint it is questionable whether the upswing will come In time to help the administration in congressional elections. If Republicans can hold control and lose only a few seats in' November, they are confident that by 1932 the business conditiona will have righted themselves. Meanwhile the opposition is making the most of its opportunity, and a drive has already begun against the new tariff bill on the ground that if President Hoover signs it the measure will help to increase the cost of living. party in power, has had many SPECIAL PROGRAMS HARK MUSIC WEEK Music week In Roaring Spring will, be mafked by special programs un- ler the auspices of the Rdarlng Spring Choral society, which are be- ng directed by Professor William «F.

The American Bhlp and an English Ship were both uner ilru due to the forces tiring upon each other across the river.
