FINE PROGRESS IN HIGHWAY BUILDING (Continued from Page 1.) two-thirds of the section to be completed before the road, which was closed to traffic a week ago this morn- Ing, can be reopened. Concreting was started before 6 o'clock yesterday morning and the largest run of the week was in prospect when rain stopped the work. It was the first time that was lost through any cause since concrete pouring was begun on the stretch a week ago today. The completion of this section of the William Penn will be the most notable change in road work in the county, a large section of the state's earliest, line to line highway, laid out by the Dest engineers of the day, being abandoned. Detour Week Hence. On route No. 286, McKee to Roaring Spring, the detour will become effective after June 14. The detour starts at the southern end of McKee's gap, and the motorist going south will turn ;o the left into what Is known as Dry jap,'continuing up Plum creek, when that valley is reached, to a point about a mile north of East Sharpsburg where the road turns right into Roaring Spring. Southbound traffic may proceed oh to East Sharpsburg without going into Roaring Spring but that section of the Plum creek road is not so good. The detour is approximately two miles longer than the direct route. Mr. Forbes explained that the state is grading and shaping the road and widening it at narrow places to permit passing at any point. As a result of the latter, the township through which it passes will benefit in the long run, it is stated. The first task of the Brua Brothers, contractors, will be the demolition of two concrete bridges, built some years ago by the county and the erection, in their steads, of new and adequate structures, on the line of the new highway much of which will be relocated The bridge at the upper end of the road need not be disturbed until one abutment and one pier of the new bridge are built as it will not be in the way and will permit traffic to continue on the old road that much longer. It Is hoped to have traffic back n the main road again by Sept. 1 Warrior Ridge Road. The Warrior ridge road construction f approximately four and one-half miles, beginning at the state reforma- ory grounds at Huntingdon and com- ng westward in the direction of Alexandria, is proceeding rapidly under the .irection of Robert Cunningham & s, contractors. This will be a wenty-foot concrete highway and is elocated in its entirety, eliminating many dangerous curves and steep grades. While there are many cuts and fills n the new structure, it will be a won- erful improvement. It crosses the old oad at three places, on grade, and vhen concrete pouring starts about 'uly 1, temporary bridges will be reeled over these places so that traf- Ic can cross over and there will not >e, at any time, any detour on this ection. Contractor B. R. Vipond is at work grading there but the contract does not affect traffic as it is entirely re- ocated. The state will oil the Sinking alley road from Culp to the state roac near Union Furnace, beginning June 5. This will be a fine accommodation or all traffic through the scenic val- ey while improvement work proceeds The state will, at the same time, oi he road from Bellwood to Blandburg Penn street, Allegheny to Garber Hollidaysburg, is entirely completef nd was thrown open for traffic ai noon yesterday. RECOVERING AT HOSPITAL,. Jesse Wysong of Allegheny township beyond Eldorado, is recuperating at he Altoona hospital where he recent- y underwent an operation after being aken seriously ill at his home. He A-ill be able to leave the institution within a week or so and his condition now is regarded aa good. MADAME OPHIB WERTZ-SELDERS M. B. M. M. Thursday evening, Madame Ophie Wertz-Selders presented her pupils In a very successful piano recital In the Jaffa temple. The temple was filled to capacity, over 2,000 being present, and a delightful and enjoyable evening was had from the enthusiastic way the many different numbers were received. Fifty-two pupils took part and they all deserve commendation. Quartet numbers with two pupils at each piano played with an unbelievable accuracy. Duets of first and second pianos were nterspersed in the program. A nutn- jer of beautiful solos were not only pleasing in a harmonic vein but show- id a splendid technique on the part of each player. The skillful rendition of difficult numbers brought spon- ;aneous applause throughout the evening. Then as a fitting climax to the program Madame played the St. Saens concerto. The greatness of her play- ng was apparent to everyone present. The marvelous technique that was displayed, wove the spell, that the true irtist creates. One can readily understand,' that In every sense of the word Madame deserves the degree of Master of Music. The program not only proved Madame a virtuoso but also a teacher. Beautiful floral tributes from her pupils and friends were graciously received. CHURCH NEWS The services at the Rescue Mission this evening at 7.45 o'clock will be conducted by the First Church of God. Rev. O. M. Kraybill is the pastor.

PHONE 4-1063 THOMAS M. O'BRlfcN. LAKEMONT MISSION TO BE WITHOUT MINISTER Official board members of the Lake mont Bible Mission held a special meeting recently at the home of Mr. Adams and the spiritual welfare of the mission was discussed. It was unanimously decided that in the future, as past experiences have proven in a union mission, it is far better without any assigned pastor. The opportunity is open for different speakers and these speakers are selected by the pulpit committee and by the grace of God. The pulpit committee will not select any one who does not believe in salvation through the blood, the finished work of the cross and the coming again of the Blessed Lord. Many other matters were taken up among them being the painting of the chapel. This will be done in the near future. The chape;, on the hill will continue to grow with God's help. The Mission will broadcast a program over the local station every other week instead of monthly. The next broadcast will be on June 26. UNUSUAL PAID TOJR. ROBB (Continued from Page 1.) the speakers of the evening, and the whole affair was immensely enjoyed by all who had the pleasure of being in attendance. Student! Talk Back. Mr. Perry said that it was the first time the High school students had the privilege of talking back to the "six feet five" which constitute the retiring dean and under the laws of courtesy his mouth would be sealed. Commenting on the extraordinary size of the principal when he first came to Altoona, Mr. Perry said that while he is not quite as large now, what he has lost in weight he has gained in the love of all who came under his guidance. "We have listened to the roll of his thunder and the flash of his lightning," said Mr. Perry, "but nevertheless, we all love him and It is most appropriate that he should now have his commencement, the prelude to a life of happiness and comfort and ease which he has so richly merited." Judge Patterson was then introduced. He said that in some respects it was ft regretful occasion and in others a happy one. It was a happy one because it gave the former students the opportunity to get together and to know each other better. One of the big things of life Is the privilege of getting together and enjoying each other's society. Began With Dr. Robb. Judge Patterson said he began teaching school down in one of the townships about the time Dr. Robb came to the High school, so he felt hat he had some right to be present, particularly In view of the fact that vhen it came his term to become a uisband, a member of the Altoona High school aluhini selected him and accompanied him to the altar. In this connection he said that he has heard a lot about Dr. Robb in his lome and it was his impression that 3r. Robb had a wonderful capacity for developing leadership among the girls. Referring to the red neckties which vere worn by Dr. Robb and himself, le said that he put it on upon being directed to do so at home. In concluding his address Judge 'atterson brought the greetings of .he people of the county to Dr. and irs. Robb. "You have made good and useful citizens of the boys and girls of this community," said the judge, 'and you have the best wishes of all 'or long life, good health and all the ioy that life can bring. The quartet of '28, composed of Howard Moore, Jack Caum, Warren Calvert and Arthur Replogle, accompanied by John Starke, sang "Sylvia" ind a medley. Greetings from Mayor. Mayor McMurray next extended greetings on behalf of the city. Mayor VIcMurray spoke as follows: "This event which the Altoona High school alumni is celebrating tonight s an effort to give full expression of their feelings regarding your serv- ce as superintendent of the Altoona rligh school. "Your life's work is a very sacred memory to thousands of our citizens who came directly under the spell of your wonderful personality. - "Your kindly face and massive form which, once seen, could never be forgotten. „ "My message is, I fear, already too long, but I cannot close without saying that the citizens of Altoona recognize your sterling value and brilliant leadership and the city officials join in the heartiest of all the good wishes which will reach you. Supt. Davis Speaks. Superintendent Davis of the county schools was the next speaker. He said that when Dr. Robb came in 1893, he was principal of the Second ward schools. They soon formed an association of the principals and Dr. Robb was "the chief of the gang." One of the things which always impressed him about Dr. Robb was the Justice he dealt out to them and to the pupils. He said that sometimes the faculty members at the High school objected to some of the timber that the principals sent them on the ground that they were not ready, but Dr. Robb usually overruled them, asserting that it would come out all right In four years. It usually did. "Throughout his whole career I have always admired his sense of justice," said Mr. Davis. Dr. Robb's election as principal, Resorts—Atlantic City, N. J. , - fd* a. * yean*, Mr, Dftvte , iffoHitft ftiu th* finest kind of a, tMbut* that could fce paid Him and he digMMd t« fts? A tribute to the laW Ptottttfor D. S. Keith, declaring that A b«tt*(f superintendent never drew th« breath of life. Mr. Davis concluded his address, by reading ft letter from Superintendent Robert E. Laramy wh6 is attending the commencement at his alma mater, in which high tribute was paid to Dr. Robb. , . AddreB* by Mr. Mr. Dively in his address called attention to the fact that Df. Robb has had conferred upon him several tt the highest honors that can bft attained by a teacher in America. In the flrst place he has had conferred upon him the degree of doctor of pedagogy, the only person in this part of the state ever thus honored and In the second place he was elected president of the State Teachers' association. 'Thus Is the man who has made the Altoona High school one of the best, if not the best, ih the country," said Mr. Dively, who then called for a "rah, rah, rah" for Dr. Robb, which was given with a vim. v Selections were given. by the High school octet and/Mario DelBlanco gave a violin selection, Miss Alma Eberle accompanying him. Mr. Perry now presented Mrs. Robb with a basket of roses and then he read frorrt a sheaf of congratulatory .etters and telegrams including those received from D. Carlton Browh, Benner Wilson, Anita McCrory Evans, Mrs Mary Pearce Martin, Sister Mary Clementine Oler, Frank H. Davis, Marjory C. Woodrlng, Henry H. Baish, Dr. Arthur S. Brumbaugh, Martha N. Glee Donald J. Howard, Frank Gearhart, Mary Belle Lees, Walter Galnes, Major E. C. Woodward and Gertrude Roberts. These came from states all over the Union. Alumni Members Speak. Solos were rendered by Mrs. Elizabeth Caum Moffet, '16, who was accompanied by her sister, Mrs. Martha Caum Gearhart, '18. Mrs. Edith Oler Flanagan was the flrst of the alumni members to be introduced. She was a pupil in the High school when Dr. Robb came and in her reminiscences she described the old High school quarters in "the attic Of the Emerson building with the doors that swung both ways like those of a garage." She told of many amusing incidents of the early days of Dr. Robb and then she read a tribute to him In verse written by Marie Masterson Mc- Cormlck, '03. Others who followed Mrs. Flanagan were: Angelo Santella, '21; William T. Canan, '12; John C. Calhoun, '01; Dr. Guy S. Tlppery, '99, and Martin McCreary, '30. Walter McEldowney, '02, Altoona's famous singer, sang "On the Road to Mandalay," and "Roses at Twilight." The latter song he said he sang in his High school days. Fresentation Is Made. Attorney Isaiah Scheeline of the class of 1894, known as the "pirates," Dr. Robb's flrst class, was then introduced and he made the presentation of the purse to Dr. Robb. Mr. Perry introduced him as the "captain of the gang of '94." A number of the previous speakers had made confessions of things they had done, but Mr. Scheeline declared that his class had nothing to confess. On the other hand, he said, his class had made history, indfcating that if it had not been for the "pirates," the things they did and the things they neglected to do, George D. Robb would never have been sent for. Mr. Scheeline declared that "the revolt of youth," about which so much is being said, did not begin after the World war, but in 1893-94. He asserted, however, that Dr. Robb, when he came, found some good qualities in the "pirates" and then soon learned to like and respect him. He soon took the piracy spirit from them and tho "pirates" today feel that they owe a tremendous debt to the man who pointed out the right path to them. In conclusion he presented the purse to Dr. Robb. Address by l)r. Robb. Dr. Robb was given a great ovation when he arose to reply to these tributes.
