The charming story of Cinderella was. told in pan'tlmime by the class, the tale beginning at the ballroom of the prince's palace. Poor little Cinderella had been left at home When her two sisters departed for the prince's ba.ll. Even the cat, her one friend, had failed to cheer her. Then her fairy godmother appeared, dressed Cinderella in beautiful clothes, changed a pumpkin and white mice into, a coach and six horses, and the cat Into a coachman. After promising to leave "promptly >at midnight, Cinderella sef out for the ball. Tho scene opens with the prince, somewhat bored, watching the 'onrtlera. and ladles as they dance: the jnvotte. In his hand he holds, a red jrt>/se, which he has promised to give to the fairest lady who shall attend the ball that night. All are amused at the appearance Of the ugly sisters, and the prince commands his two friends to dance with them. Cinderella arrives, and the prince, enraptured, gives her the rose and dances with her. Various dances are presented by the royal ballet for the entertainment of the prince and his guests. The ball is at its height when, to Cinderella's horror, the clock strikes 12. In comes the cat, the pu ipkin and the white mice to remind her of her broken promise. She escapes unnoticed by anyone, dropping her slipper as she goes. The second act took place in the garden of the palace at dawn of the next day. The night wind passes lightly through the garden; the statues step down from their pedestals and three butterflies flit about in the gathering sunlight. The fairy godmother appears, warning all of- the approach of mortal, and all la quiet again, when Cinderella enters. She dances "Rose of Love" and hide* in terror when she hears the court approaching. All assemble for the trying on of the slipper, the prince having sworn to marry whom-so-ever it shall fit. The prince is disappointed (Continued on Page 14) GITS GRAYER 193O 1927 The burden of the presidency has visibly grayed President Hoover, «s these pictures show.

GOVERNOR WEARS ONLY UNDERWEAR AT MEETING i > "^ l STANDARDS BUREAU TO DECIDE ON NEW RECORD WASHINGTON, D. C., 'June 5.— Lieutenant Apollo Soucek waited cag- •irly today for the standard bureau's Test 'of his barograph which will tell whether he went higher in an airplane than any man before him. The young' naval officer, who broke the world's altitude record last summer only to have it recaptured soon by Willie Neuhofen, a German, tried 'io regain his laurels here yesterday. When he descended, after two hours land seven minutes in the air, he said his altimeter had registered 42,000 feet. Soucek used the same supercharger- equipped Wright Apache plane that bore him aloft to victory once before. Neuhofen's record was 41,794. According to the International Aeronautical association's rules, Soucek must have exceeded this by 318 feet to be the world's altitude champion. Although altimeters and barographs do not always agree, Soucek fears he fulled to break the record. But he plan* to try again.

Dr. Guy Tlppery read a resolution on the retirement of Dr. Robb, and then moved that the resolution be adopted by the board. The motion was unanimously adopted. The resolution read as follows.; "Dr. George p. Robb, assumed the duties of principal of Altoona High school, Nov. 1, 1893. The school at that time was located on the third floor of the Emerson building, numbered about 150 pupils, and had a faculty , of • five teachers including himself. Since then he has been a loyal, efficient head of the school, and much of the' progress and the standing Altoona High school enjoys today, is due to his excellent guidance and direction. During these years the school has increased In pupils until today^we have a membership of almost 2,700, a faculty of 105, a .graduating class this year of 600, a graduating class of four times the enrollment of the school when Dr. Robb took charge. "Some months ago Dr. Robb notified this board that he desired to retire at the end of this school year. "Now, we, the members of this board of directors of the Altoona school district, wish to congratulate Dr. Robb on his long years of faithful service, the good he has accomplished, and to wish him peace and pleasure in whatever other task he may engage, and to assure him that his many years of faithful service will long be remembered by this board. Further, that a copy of this resolution be placed on our minutes for permanent record and a copy sent to Dr. Robb.

SHOWERS AND COOLER WEATHER PREDICTION PITTSBURGH, June B.—Local forecast for western Pennsylvania —Showers tonight , and Friday; cooler Friday. Conditions—Showers and thunderstorms were again general over the states from central Illinois westward, and cloudy weather prevails over that section this morning. It is cloudy this morning over the southern states, and light showers occurred at scattered places yesterday afternoon and night. The rain a,rea has not advanced much farther eastward since yesterday, but the barometer is decreasing over the east, which is favorable to cloudiness and ahowera. There was a slight increase in temperature over the eastern states since yesterday, while over the western states there was a further drop. At Yellowstone National Park the temperature was 32 degrees this morning.

The county had just about such good luck on Its own roads but with the state taking the land and the commissioners, following up, the story has been a different one. Heavy tfairiages have been paid, in a number of notable cases, where old .whlppoorwlll farms were made several times Worth their original "values by reason of tile con-> struction of the highways < and still, sums were paid equivalent to the orlg j mal cost of the farms. Other Matters Enter. . •fif course, there are other matters entering Into the problems of the county which precludes the building of any roads this year, it was learned at the office of the county commissolners at Hollldaysburg today. Ohe, of these is the extreme cost of road ; building materials. Blair county executive and fiscal officials do not think it expedient to build concrete roads on back- ways because of tfie great cost, but lately, what might be termed the cheaper types of roads have been costing concrete prices because of the numerous patents and other tariffs placed on materials. Last* year and year before, sections of the Clover creek road, leading from Willlamsburg to Martinsburg by way of Fredericksburg, were built and it was hoped the final connecting link would be built this year. But it cannot be because It takes much of the money available for the payment of damages. . * , • , The county some time ago .was obliged to take over ,the Wpbsononbck road, leading from the Martz school to the Cambria county line, near Highland Flingf.- The road had been macadamized to a point beyond,the Parks' poultry farm. ; That is being, oiled today and the upper" reaches, of the road are to be graded and drained. No hard surface will be applied this year. The commissioners some time ago provided for the oiling of all macadam roads under the county's care and Commissioner John F. Royer in charge of the highways and County Engineer Charles E. Stout have been working out the program for some time. It Is expected that all macadam roads will be kept intact and all dirt roads bs made as good as/it is possible to make and maintain them as dirt roads, but none of them will be made of concrete or macadam or any other durable wearing surface until there is a way open to conserve the money from paying damages for state roads and building materials get cheaper or the "pound of flesh" demanded by inventors or proprietary road material come down In their price. TRADING ON CURB DULL AND NARROW \ By JOHN A. CRONE. ' (Copyright, 1930, by Altoona Mirror.) NEW YORK, June 5.—Dull trading and narrow price changes at the opening of the curb exchange today turnjed to active selling and lower prices as the session progressed, but bears were not able to get far with their tactics. Renewed weakness in investment trust and trading corporation shares, feeble attempts to push up the natural gas shares on which the Street was unanimously bullish in words if not on the tape, and further softness in copper securities .were outstanding features of the trading. Omission of the Goldman Sachs Trading dividend two days ago caused many rumors to circulate on the floor about other dividend omissions or reduction. ;i As Goldman Sachs sank to a new low for the year, Transamerica, another of the prominent trading corporations, became a bear target. Transamerica, it was rumored, would reduce its quarterly dividends. Elisha Walker, chairman of Transamerica corporation, said that at the regular quarterly payment of 40 cents in cash would be voted. The extra of 3 per cent in stock already has been declared payable July 25* to holders of record July 5. This stock dividend was announced March 26. Before Mr. Walker's statement appeared, however, many trusts and trading corporations sold lower. United Founders was down almost a point. Shenandoah preferred was 1% points lower and Blue Ridge convertible preferred fell a point. Convertible preferreds of trusts and trading corporations, taken as a group, have displayed consistent weakness. Many of these issues have greater asset value in back of them than they had when they were selling 10 points higher, and most of them are covering their dividends by safe margins. The reported purchase of Lone Star Gas by United Light & Power started a short-lived movement on both stocks. Bringing in of new wells and termination of when-Issued period betterec Duquesne Gas. United Gas, despite the completion of its merger plans, continued slow. Stores and food shares showed signs of strength at intervals.. Carnation Company was up 1% and United Stores up 1%. Swift International rose more than a point before meeting resistance. DEMOCRATIC PARTY ADVOCATES REPEAL (Continued from Page 1.) against it, left nothing further controversial before the committee, as Chairman John R. Collins and the other officers had been reelected previously without opposition. It is believed that the session yesterday was the first Important meeting of the Democratic state committee in sevvr'a decades that has not been marked! by a row between rival factions. \ All the seven Democratic candidates appeared and spoke at the committee meeting and each candidate declared for the platform adopted. Chajrmun Collins sounded the keynote of the coming campaign when he denounced the Pinchot candidacy. "Pinchot," be declared, "is trying to sneak into the governor's office | through the back door." That the Democrats plan to center their attack on the candidacy of the I former governor was evident arouui I the committee meeting. ALUMNI MEMBERS TO IIT ON STAGE Announcement was: mftds today of the personnel of th# representatives of the thirty-seven graduating class of the AHodna High school, Who will occupy pladea on, the' stage at the- blgf alumni reception to Dr. George &.

" NEW YORK, June' 5.—The eastern seaboard from Maryland to Maine sought relief today .from a severe heat wave which-already has caused several deaths and numerous prostrations. Little surcease was expected before Friday or Saturday in most sections, and predictions- Were that the coming week-end would see an unprecedented rush for cool mountain retreats or beach resorts. (' Baltimore was the hottest place 'In the east yesterday with a temperature of 96. Humidity madex the suffering great in most cities along the north Atlantic coast. In Boston the thermometer touched 94 and several new cases of prostration were added to those already being treated. The heat reached the same level in Washington, D. C., Philadelphia reported ar temperature of 92. It was equally hot at Portland lS Me., and Albany. N. Y. X The excessive heat extended several hundred miles inland from the coast. As far west as Pittsburgh the mercury soared 'to 90. Six deaths were attributed to the heat in New York, four of them occurring yesterday. An the city's health authorities into the illness of a score of .persons Who reported they had been poisoned by food revealed that food had been spoiled by the high temperatures. . While this section', sweltered, snow was reported at Conneaut Lake, Pa., but after a brief flurry the • thermometer at that resort quickly rose to 74. COUNTERFEIT GANG IS CAPTURED IN DETROIT DETROIT, June 5.—Trailed by secret service agents for ten months, five men were under arrest here today as the leaders of a $1,000,000 counterfeiting ring recently discovered in New York. The ^uspects are John Bitontl, aged 34; Frank Tocco, aged 37; Phillip Seller, aged 44; Dominiok Costada, aged 35, and Frank Dalamoni. . Federal agents were said to have followed the five men here from New York and negotiated with them for the purchase of $50,000 in spurious $10, J$80 and $50 bills for 37 cents on the dollar. After bargaining for several months, the operatives, George Boos, Leo Mooney and William Carlson, said they purchased $1,500 of the counterfeit money. The purchase was made In New York and the suspects were trailed back here. Four of the men were arrested last night.- Salamoni already was in custody for questioning in connection with the killing of two Detroit policemen last Sunday. PHILADELPHIA TO SUPPORT MARTIN (Continued from Page 1.) however, continued to refuse to concede Pinchot's nomination. It Old Custom. Plnchot issued another statement today In connection with Van Brown's candidacy, fn 'Which he reiterated that it has' "been a long-established custom" ot the Pennsylvania Republican state committee to select a state chairman "known to be In sympathy with the platform and policies of the candidate for governor." The gubernatorial candidate pointed out that this policy, with one exception, ,has always been followed by the state' committee and that the rule has for. many generations been followed by the national. Republican party. The one exception happened in 1922 wheft Pinchot was elected governor. He explained this Situation by saying that/ in the "primary maelstrom" he was unable .to devote any attention to the state committee and after he won the nomination found a committee elected "by the men who tried to beat me." , Lively Ward Elections. PITTSBURGH. June 5.— In meetings marked by near-riots ,and much disorder ward chairmen were elected in Pittsburgh last night i and in three wards there were" two chairmen each today who claimed the position. In the Fifth, third and Thirteenth wards two meetings were held and two chairmen were elected in each. In the Fifth the forces of former Councilman James F. Malone and a squad of police engaged In considerable pushing and milling -about as the former attempted to hold an open air meeting. While City Assessor Harry . Feldman, backed by Mayor Charles H. Kline, was .being elected to the office, Malone forces, with police allegedly pushing them hither and yon, on the steps at the -Watt street school, acclaimed Malone the victor. Votes were passed from hand to hand during the melee and after a period of struggling and milling about it was announced that Malone had won and the meeting was dispersed. Malone had previously been denied admittance to the meeting where Feldman was elected, he charged. In the Third ward John R. Donley was reelected chairman by one group, while in another meeting Lon Mc- Intpsh was chosen for the, office. Alderman Verona and Joseph Englesj burg were elected by rival camps "in the l Fifth ward. According to political observers McIntosh. Englesburg and Feldman all have the support of the mayor. WOMAN'S REQUEST NOT GRANTED; POINT IS WON ELECTRICITY TO TAKE BELL RINGER'S PLACE STOCKHOLM, June 5. — Sweden's last woman ringer ot church bells, Augusta Andersaon, who for thlrty- nve years has pulled the ropes in the tower of the old Katarlna church here, has been pensioned, and electric ma- chiney will no>v be installed. Since 1805 Miss Anderson has attended to the tolling of the bells and only been absent once, two years ago, on account of illness. The first ten years it was her duty to toll the bells on Sundays only, but later she became head bell-ringer, with nine other women to assist her. The church has four bells, the largest of which needs six persons to swing it. The bells are rung every day at 8 in the morning and at 5 in the afternoon. ALTOONA DISPENSARY.

Gruhiun, missionary at Suifu. China, recently caught the largest minnow ever captured. It measured 38 inches long and checked exactly with common minnows found elsewhere, with the exception of its size. It is to be, preserved in alcohol at the National Museum in .Wasntngton, D, C. WASHINGTON, D. C., June 5.— After an elderly woman demanded to discuss the issue in question with Beaufort county commissioners "one at a time," it was decided to .defer action until August in the .matter of Continuing; work 'of the county home demonstration agent. Fifty women appeared before the board to urge retention of the agent's services. ' The elderly woman took the floor. "Mr. Chairman," she said. "I ain't much for talking to a big bunch of men like this, but I sure can tell it to 'em one -at a time. If you all are thinking of doing away with the home demonstration agent, I'd like to have the opportunity of seeing each member of the board by himself and talking to_my husband." ' The'commissioners lost no time in deferring action. TARIFF BILL VETO THODGHT_POSSIBLE (Continued from Page I.) 1 day reported American Ambassador Edge had begun a tour of France to counteract resentment there against the pending tariff bill. More than thirty nations have registered complaints and some have already embarked on retaliatory measures. Many here believe Mr. Hoover's political future is involved to a marked degree in the tariff bill, recalling the fate that overtook William Howard Taft after approving the Payne-Aldrich bill in 1909. At the same time a movement to make Dwight W. Morrow of New.Jer- sey the 1932 Republican .presidential nominee came Into the open today following a period of underground discussion. Former Governor Stokes of New Jersey, and President John Grler Hibben of Princeton, publicly advocated 'Morrow's nomination. Morrow has kept silent on the tariff but his friends here have said he is opposed to the pending bill. Because of his standing in the business world and the desire of opponents of prohibition to get behind him, many politicians in Washington expect a serious effort to push Morrow forward as a candidate will take place provided he wins his primary and election contests Jn New Jersey, and provided they feel Mr. Hoover has lost popularity in the meantime. Some of the presidents friends have advised him he could meet this situation by a bold stroke against the tariff bill at this time. AMERICAN FORGER USES SHOES TO HIDE BONDS MEXICO CITY, June 5.—Four $1,000 dollar bonds were found in the shoes of Joy Harper, American wanted on forgery charges in Pittsburgh and elsewhere, the newspaper La Prensa said today. Officials at Belen prison, where Harper is held, said they thought he had secreted them in the hope he could bribe his guards and escape. He is being held for extradition. The authorities were considering new evidence presented in the form of two affidavits by residents of Oklahoma, submitted yesterday. Detectives hoped action would finally result. They have waited -here since last March, seeking to extradite Harper to Oklahoma City, where he is wanted on a charge of fraud. HELD m KILLING A youthful husband and a 22-year- old quarter-blood Indian girl are held at Ashtabula, O., for first degree murder, charged with slaying the husband's wife because of their "love tor each other. TUby Smith, shown below, the husband, put hi* wife "on the spot," they have confessed, by leaving her In their' truck parked by a lonely road; then Mrs. Maude Lowther, above, his Inamorata, appeared and shot the woman to death. NEW SOCIAL Young Ma* few-totd *f tions of Qtovp to Spot Rnna Two Police Protection. A* CATTLE AND WEAK; HOGS STEADY By FRANK E. MOORE j (Copyright. 1930, by Altoona Mirror.) UNION STOCK YARDS* CHICAGO, June 5.—The same lethargic condition that prevails in other commodity ma^- kets was apparent again today in the' livestock trade. . D.emahd continues slack in most lines with values tending lower. The run of 7,500 cattle were as many as the trade could absorb without further price concessions. Demand was weak and the market alow. Some good heavy steers sold at »13 to $14, but few were higher than $13: Most medium to good animals went at $11 to $12 with plainer lights and yearlings at $9 to $11. Cows and heifers also had a weaker tendency, whfle bulls held steady but sold slowly. The market for calves was steady. The hog market held steady even though big packers demand was almost totally absent. Shippers and smaller packers were interested in the offerings from the run of 27,000 and bought freely. Several loads of light and medium animals weighing from 175 to 210 pounds sold up to $10.60, while heavies brought $10.40 for the best. Packing sows were steady at $9 to $9,75.
