In Owego, he said, there were many forms of gambling devices before two arrests were made Saturday night but not a one can be found today as the arrests prompted operators to retire the devices from service. Arthur Barton of Barton's Inn at Crediford Says P.T.A.Can Help Children Learn Supply of Books, Pictures and Pets at Home Will Instill in Youngsters a Desire to Learn, Parents Told SOUTH WAVERLY, Jan. 21 Problems of teachers and how parents can help create in children a desire to learn were discussed by Supervising Principal Eugene E. Crediford of the Athens igh school at a meeting of the P. T. A. last night. The first problem of the teacher, Mr. Crediford said, is to know the natural learning ability of the child when he first enters- school. On this knowledge is based the success of the child in learning to read. Boy and girls have more to learn than facts from hooks, he asserted, adding that the biggest step, in a youth's education is a development on the part of the pupil to know. The teacher is a guide, willing to help the child in that desire. The aim of present day education is to deal with each individual child as a unit. Background and environment are important factors' in education, Mr. Crediford told the parents. By providing Interesting books and pictures parents can help develop a desire to read and learn. Each child should have some kind of pet to care for. Comparisons of present and old time methods of education were made by the speaker. A literature display on "The Tale of Two Cities," prepared- by Donald Reynolds' class was viewed by the association and Ralph Sutherland directed high, school girls in singing P. T. A. songs. Leon Sinsa-baugh, baritone, and Howard Lincoln, trombone player, gave solos and a group of ninth grade girls under the direction of James Al-tieri gave a demonstration of table etiquette. The following committee was appointed to arrange a play Feb. 17 and 18: James Altieri, chairman; Edwin Sickler, Anthony Kowaleski, Ralph Sutherland, Leon Hawthorne, Harry Weaver, Arthur Gay, Mrs. Walter Partridge, Miss Marie Barry, Mrs. Marie Druckemiller, Mrs. Charles Stevens, Miss Margaret Connolly and Mrs. Harold Thurston.

Supper Meeting Speaker Says Proof of Special Christmas Star Is Found in 1935; Members Present Skits WAVERLY, Jan. 21 An outline of the civilization of man and various stages in the development of his environment, body and knowledge was give by Dr. Harry S. Fish at a supper meeting of the J.F.F. club at the First Presbyterian church social hall Monday evening. The speaker said that the functions of the appendix, tonsil and gall bladder have or are dissap-pearing and then said, "I don't know what the life of ' a surgeon will be 5,000 years from now with the gall bladder, appendix and tonsils gone." Discussing glaciers which scientists gay once covered this section, Dr. Fish said that Spanish 1 Hill was formed by a mass of ice 200 feet high. The "kettle holes" on West Lockhart street in Sayre, the Sayre athletic field and Packer pond are "kettle holes" formed by the glaciers. At one time all rivers flowed north and the St. Lawrence river emptied into the Mississippi but the glaciers formed dams which resulted in the Finger Lakes of New York State. Following the glacier period only two living things were left in America, the Sequoia trees of California and a man like the Neanderthal man who lived many generations and contributed to the civilization of man the discovery of fire. Later there 'was the Cro-Magnon man who learned to count to 10. Real civilization, Dr. Fish asserted, arrived with the advent of Christ. Mohammed, born after Christ was the first home town booster. He appointed himself priest and prophet of his home town god Allah and made people from all over the world want to come and see the black stone some time before they died. The stone is believed to be the same on which Abraham was going to sacrifice his son Isaac. Two great progresses in civilization were described as the discovery of seed and Gutenberg's invention of the printing press with movable type. Building of the giant telescope with the 200-inch mirror cast several months ago at Corning will add to man's knowledge, he said. The 1935 discovery of a brilliant star which exploded adds proof to the contention that the Wrise Men saw a special star at the time of Christ's birth, the speaker said. President Walter Sidey, Mrs. Thomas Tighe, Mrs. John C. Rhodes, Mrs. C. B. Tobey and Mrs. Wallace S. Young won first prize In a contest in which groups, arranged according to the months of birthdays, used newspapers to make costumes for skits. They depicted 'The Spirit of '76." Mr. Sidey named committees for the next meeting as follows: supper, .Mrs. Donald VanAtta, Mrs. Edwin Knapp; and entertainment, Mrs. Carl A. Coots, Mrs. Lawrence Jayne and Siade Palmer. PIC.

MIS HISTORY CLUB MEET LUNCHEON Bear, Two Cubs Found in County Game Protector Baker Finds Plenty of Game; 'Possum In- creasinz Kanicuy: ueer uo Tiitl. nimiirt Klsmchard cays WAVERLY, Jan. 21 Tioga county has an abundance of wild game ranging in size from squirrels to bear and deer, according to Delos Baker of Owego, state game protector for Tioga county. Bear are the latest of game to be found in the county, Mr. Baker told the Evening Times today. A brown bear and two, cubs have been located on the Foster Wood farm on the Briggs Hollow road about a mile from the village of Nichols, Mr. Baker Friday went to the place the animals were reported and found their tracks throughout the woods in the vicinity and expessed the belief they are staying in a cave. They probably migrated from across the nearby Pennsylvania state line, he said. Opossum is another variety of animal which recently has invad- ed the county. Their numbers have been increasing since they were first seen about a year ago until "the woods are full of them," the game protector said. Several residents of the county have captured them alive and between 40 and 50 are reported to have been caught in traps. At least two have been captured in Waverly. Rabbits Plentiful The gray squirrel migration of last fall which crossed the south ea-st corner of the county apparently made little difference on the number of squirrels, Mr. Baker said. Rabbits, however, are plentiful but in the neighboring county of Tompkins where the use of ferrets is permitted, there are practically none. Sportsmen from Tompkins county have told the Tioga county protector that the use N r il r "tie wan of J MEASURING SPOONS GET YOUR SET AT THE CS-100 RUMFORD THE PERF of ferrets has helped in tha tliml- nation of rabbits. Pheasant and other birds have not suffered from lack of food yet Jthis winter as there have not been enough snow storms to cover their supplies. Deer, now getting quite plentiful In Tioga county, are not doing much damage, Mr. Baker said. Although there re a lot of them few farmers have complained of crop loss. During the past few weeks a total of 16 have been killed, 14 by automobiles, one illegally shot and another kiled by dogs which chased it until it was trapped in a creek fence near Newark Valley. Wheat Not Damaged Herds of deer have been located In the vicinities of Tioga Center, Candor, Halsey Valley, Gaskill Corners state reforestation project and in the town of Barton. Mr. Baker said there is a large herd back of the Victor Kinney place at Barton. Commenting on reports of crops damaged by deer, A. R. Blanchard of Owego, county Farm Bureau manager, told The Evening Times that it has not become serious enough so that farmers would consider an open season. One farmer recently reported that his crop of winter wheat is being eaten. Mr. Blanchard stated, however, that unless it was cropped too short it would not bie damaged but in the spring would grow back. He doubts if there is enough winter wheat on hill lands where the deer are found to provide much trouble and added that the small amount of this grain raised in Tioga county is practically all raised on valley farms where population is thick and deer are few. Some buckwheat is damaged occasionally but farmers apparently still would turn down cold, as they did about a year ago, any proposals that there be an open season. j w uuu ALL PHOSPHATE ECT TWO - TOUR.
