NEW YORK, May 31.—Sun pleats have risen/to cast their glamour over spring fashions, especially those designed to be worn after the sun has set. This re-Introduction of the sun-burst variety of pleats has been acpomplsih- ed very recently arid is a movement that makes for fresh interest. This particular version of the circular and pleated skirts Is inevitable, after all, since the fashion picture had established skirts that were either pleated or circular as the accepted silhouette. The idea as has been 'said is especially agreeable In connection with evening skirts, since they have so much length from normal waistline to nearly the floor, and fulness is subscribed to now as arising from the waistline, permitting-all the length and breadth that sun-burst pleats demand. The favor in which flat crepe now stands for evening wear also presents a texture that is extremely desirable for these radiating, lines of pleating. Another reason Why sunpleating fits in with the present mode is that It presents another expression' of the Grecian mode, which though not taken to seriously as a fact, is sflll a dominating influence in many features .of today's smart fashions. The cowl draped neckline, which is perhaps more Important in evening fashions than daytime, is one instance of its influence, while the growing vogue of wide, long, skirts, and the peplum are still others. o'clock. On Thursday evening at 7.30 o'clock Rev. Evans will teach the Sunday school lesson for the following Sunday. The public is cordially invited to attend these services.

Memorial day was no holiday fo more than half of the force of work men in the employ of the Clark Broth ers Construction company, builders o the Cresson mountain section of th TO SOW BEAK Roaring Spring Turns Out to Honor Veterans and Stir- Address Serves to Be- new Patriotic Spirit. .*! Ill I Roaring Spring fittingly observed Memorial day. The entire morning was devoted to a program of exercises and the decoration of the graves of he national heroes who repose in the emeterles and on the hillsides of the ove district. All Industrial and business activity in the borough was at a tandstill during the day and the en- ire community Joined in paying homage to v those who preserved the United States through 1 the several wars in which the country was forced o engage. The Roaring Spring program was carried out under the leader- ihip of the Sons of Veterans. The local patriotic organization, has a long Ust of soldier dead to honor on Memorial day and although they are scattered in a half dozen ceme- eries In this section of the county, no spot was missed that/held the remains of a veteran. A few of the small cemeteries which are not in use any longer are not very well kept but some member of the camp always seeks out these spots on Memorial day with proper decorations and the usual salute. During the afternoon members of the Roaring Spring band and patriotic organizations assisted in Memorial services In the smaller communities. One of the outstanding features of the borough program was the remarkable patriotic address delivered by the ReV. A. L. Thompson of the United Brethren church of East Freedom. Rev. Thompson stressed the sacredness and the importance of the day to Americans, and brought vividly to mind the valiant services so heroically performed on death dealing battlefields through the century and a half that has passed since the winning of the Revolutionary war. Pointing out that the very existence of the nation today is due to the work of the dead men and women being honored. The speaker emphasized the fact that their efforts can never be fully appreciated or measured. The address sparkled with that vitality that holds an audience entranced, and it is certain that everyone present left with a fuller and clearer understanding of Memorial day. , The Roaring Spring program opened with a patriotic parade. Forming in the square opposite the I. ,O. O. F. hall under the direction of Marshall Emory Garber, the parade led by, the Roaring Spring band traveled over the principal streets of the borough to Greenlawn cemetery,. where the exercises were held. With but a few of the Civil war veterans left to participate in the services, they and. the war mothers occupied motor cars at the end of the long line. Other' organizations in line were Sons of Veterans, P... O. S. of A., P. O. of A., Murray Appleman post ot the American Legion, D. A. R., Boy Scouts and members of the various borough Sunday schools. The program at the cemetery opened with the singing of "America," accompanied by the band, and the devotional services by Rev. Cyrus A. Byler, pastor of the Bare Memorial Church of God. A patriotic number by the Yates quartet was'followed by the able rendition of Lincoln's Gettysburg address by Miss Miriam Moore. The stirring address of the principal speaker, Rev. Thompson, was followed by a recitation, "In ., Flanders Field," perfectly rendered by, Miss Bertha Moreland. Another patriotic song by the Yates quartet preceded the calling of the roll of honored-dead by Babe Price. The benediction was pronounced by Rev. George S. Womer pastor of the Methodist church. The memorial services of the Sons of Veterans and the American Legloi were then held and the soldier deac were salujked with the accustomec three volleys, as the program endec with the sounding of taps by Davic iongenecker, member of the Boy Scout troop of the St. Luke Lutheran church. The graves of the soldiers in Green- fSwn cemetery were beautifully decorated, while the graves of the other loved ones reposing there were .marked with beautiful cut flowers and potted plants. There were few mounds in the big cemetery that did not beai some evidence of remembrance or o) Memorial day. Many of the graves were profusely decorated and the cemetery was the prettiest spot in the town during the day.

SUPPLY CO. 1120 18tb Ave. Dial 8-8297 Pennsylvania's new Justice of the United States supreme court, Owen J. Roberts of the Philadelphia bar, ap- ointed by President Herbert C. Hoo- er bn May 9, 1930, when Judge John . Parker of North Carolina failed of onflrmation by the United States senate, will be the honor; guest at the annual/banquet of the Pennsylvania Bar association on the evening of une 27, next, at Bedford Springs. This will be the State Bar associa- ion's first banquet to a United States upreme court Justice from Pennsyl- 'ania. On account of this ana a proposal reported to be coming in the form of resolution that the State Bar association, through referenda of its members, advise the governor and people if the State association's 'opinion of he qualifications of candidate's for ihe supreme and superior courts, the attendance Is expected to be the largest in the history of the association. According to a program issued by Secretary Harold B. Beitler of the Philadelphia bar the association will lold its thirty-sixth annual meeting n the Bedford Springs hotel, Bedford Springs, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, June 25 to 27 inclusive. During the same week there will be teld the fourth judicial conference of :he members of the Pennsylvania Judiciary upon the various subjects referred to its committees at the last meeting in Philadelphia. Among the subjects to be discussed are new bills proposing'to amend the aws relating to the selection of jurors n both Philadelphia and Allegheny counties. The purpose is to try to get higher type juries. The problem of determining facts under the Jury sys- :em seems to be becoming more dif- Icult, according to the members of :he judiciary, because so many juries disregard facts and dispose of cases on matters not even brought out in the trial. Judge Frank P. Patterson of the Allegheny county common pleas court s chairman of the jury committee and has publicly said the judicial conference and Bar association will be requested to lend its support and in- luence toward correcting present defects. . In Allegheny county criticism Is due ;o the provisions requiring one juror :o be selected out of every fifty-names of taxables and enabling so many women to be seated in the jury box because too many men are able to get excused from the duty of jury service. The problem is expected to provoke much discussion,at the judicial conference and will probably be a subject for interesting debate. A committee of which William W. Ryon of Northumberland county is chairman is expected to present resolutions to modernize and make uniform the-procedure of the courts and cooperate with the American Bar association's committee on uniform 1 judicial procedure. This subject is part of an undertaking being sponsored by the American Bar association to modernize law and court practice. Many other reports befng prepared for submission to this meeting will present problems of Importance to all the people. The lawyers will convene their association on Wednesday, 'June 25, at 9.30 a. m. when Attorney Bernard J. Myers .of Lancaster, president of the Bar association, will deliver the president's annual address. Mr. Myers is expected to have some unusual observations to deliver to the members because he has appointed, upon the suggestion of Attorney Alex. Carson of Philadelphia, a special committee to study and suggest a revision of all the corporation laws of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. This committee has been actively at work since the meeting In Pittsburgh when the Allegheny County Bar association tendered a banquet to the supreme court justices in March last. Attorney Edwin W. Smith of the Pittsburgh bar was made chairman of this committee. The committee as originally appointed consists of the followijjg well-known Pennsylvania lawyers whose names will be submitted to the State Bar association by President Myers. The committee consists of: Edwin W. Smith of Pittsburgh, chairman, and C. Reynolds Bedford of Scranton; Hon. George E. Alter and John G. Buchanan of Pittsburgh; William Clark Mason, Hon. Franklin Spencer Edmonds, A. Carson Simpson, and Charles T. Thompson of Philadelphia; Charles H. Holllnger, of the secretary of commonwealth's office, Hon. George Ross Hull of Harrlsburg, S. R.

Henry Upson Sims of Mobile, Ala., president of the American Bar association. His subject has not yet been announced. On Thursday, June 26, the conference of delegates from the local Bar associations will take place and a paper will be read by Dean Herbert F.

COLLECTION PUN IS DECLARED BAD Modernizing of State'* 8yft- tem to del Gasoline Levy Being Sought by Pennsylvania Motoriiti. HARRISBURO, May 31.—Modernizing of the state's system of gasoline tax collection will be sought by the Pennsylvania Motor federation, state unit of the American Automobile association, at the next session of the legislature, it was announced today. "The present method of collecting tax from the retailer, rather than from the distributor, is both expensive and cumbersome," said S. Edward Gable, president of the federation," and should be corrected as soon as possible. The commonwealth literally is throwing thousands of dollars away each year that the present system is in effect." Mr. Gable set forth figures contained in a recent report of the United States bureau of public roads showing that Pennsylvania paid fifteen times as much in 1929 as did California, where wholesale collection is in effect, to get in practically the same amount of gasoline tax revenue. Levied on 1,139,738,244 gallons of fuel, which amounted to $34,192,087 net, the gasoline tax collection in California cost $8,556 under the wholesale plan, the federal report shows. The net collections in Pennsylvania for the same period were $35,757,816 on 1,047,914,175 gallons, at a cost of $145,825. "These figures tell the story in a 'nutshell," said the federation head, "and greatly overbalance the few advantages to be found in the retail collection plan. Not only California has tried out the wholesale plan and found It to be cheaper and more effective, but it has been adopted in forty-four other states, Pennsylvania being one of the* very few still holding to the old system. "The gasoline rltailer, upon whom a bond is imposed by the commonwealth to 'insure payment of his tax, does not like the present plan and will be glad to get rid of it. To be sure, he gets a small commission for his services, but the average gasoline dispenser will be glad to forego that in order to be free of the troubles that go with the additional bookkeeping and other work necessary under the retailer collection system. "The state legislature in 1929 saw fit to continue the retail system, despite considerable sentiment in favor of the wholesale collection plan. Developments during the past year have brought about a decided change in opinion, however, and indications are that when a bill providing for collection of fuel tax at the source Is introduced there will be sufficient support to bring about its passage."

SUPERINTENDENT PETERS REMEMBERED BY STAFF Miss Nell C/Peters, superintendant of the Altoona hospital, Thursday evening was tendered a delightful surprise at the nurses' home where members of the hospital staff had assembled and she was presented with a Governor Winthrop desk set and a bronze statuette, "The Scout." The presentation came as a complete surprise. Dr. H. O. Jones, chief of the urolo- glcal staff, made the presentation speech and others spoke briefly in congratulating the superintendent. An engraved card accompanied the gifts and read as follows: . "Presented to Miss Nej^C. Peters by the staff of the Altoona hospital as evidence of the high regard in which she is held by each of them. While unusally efficient In her conduct of the hospital, we realize that she is always considerate of the welfare of the staff." A luncheon brought .the gather- Ing to a close. .' CURTAIN FALLS ON BIG TYRONE CLASS The final scene, of the 1930 commencement exercises for the Tyrone High school was enacted, in the auditorium of the Y. M. C. A. on Thursday evening, before a capacity audience of relatives and friends of the eighty- three young men and women who composed the graduating class. The program was unique and intensely interesting, being given entirely by the members of the class and their fellow students. The general theme of the commencement program was "World Peace" and the orations delivered by the honor students of the class centered around this important subject, which was prompted by the Kellogg-Brland peace pact, and the recent London conference for the limitation ot arms. , Each of the orations given showed a marked intelligence on the part of the students, as Well as the deep concentration given their subject in prepara-, tion. The entire group of orations proved very interesting and enlightening to the audience. The topics given were -'"Causes of War, Wanleta Hawke; "Cost of War," Charlottte Batcheler; "Ancient and Medieval Attempts, to Abolish War," Frances Brower; "The League of Nations as a Means of Abolishing War," Grace Wilt; "Present Trends Toward Peace," William Cree; "What a Warless World Would Mean," by Frances Smith. The High School orchestra contributed largely to the ultimately pleasing and successful program with selections under the leadership of Miss Margaret Nash. The diplomas to the graduates was presented by the superintendent of schools, W. W. Eisenhart, in a most appropriate and impressive manner, bringing to a close the season of school activities which have been the outstanding functions of the past, week. TRIBUTE IS PAID • TYRONE VETERANS Tyrone paid homage to the soldier dead on Memorial day with most fitting services, carefully prepared and carried out, by a combined committee from the various military organizations of 'the town and the hearty cooperation of the townsfolk in general. With-a beautiful spring sun shining in sympathy with the spirit of the day, the great throng of patriotic citizens assembled at the Municipal building in readiness for the march to Grandview cemetery, where the more formal program was presented, while the large concourse of people, with bared heads, stood silently in tribute to that great army of veterans, in blue, khaki and home-spun, who gave their all for the cause-of democracy and to those who still live. Every grave where an American soldier rests was marked with an American flag, an emblem of the war in which he participated, along with a beautiful bouquet of flowers.. The address of the day was given by Rev. Samuel W.' Strain, pastor of the Columbia Avenue Methodist church, who Wid a most loving tribute to the citizens as a, whole, all of whom had a part In the Winning of the great struggles, along with those who braved the guns of battle. In addition to the services at the cemetery, the American Legion memorial was also a mecc'a for the Legionnaires and their friends, while appropriate services were held in honor of those who gave their all in the great World war. The streets in the business section of the town and many private residences were ablaze with the flowing emblem of Old Glory, waving so proudly on the occasion of the 1930 memorial observance. PLANE VISITS FROM EAST. The airport of the Central Pennsylvania Airway, Inc., at Duncansville entertained another air tourist this week. A Philadelphia aviator made a landing at the field and after a brief sojourn, during which time th« plane was refueled, took off again to return to his home port. Despite the fact that stiff winds were battled almost the entire way west, the plane made the trip from Philadelphia to Duncansville in two hours and thirty- five minutes. Much better time was expected to be made on the return trip. A large number of spectators visited the Duncansville field on Memorial day. BARBER, DEAD, LIVES. '** ,.
