Rooters for the Statu College football
team, which plays Penn tomorrow, are
In town.
Seme were spick and span, ethers
were dusty and teusel-hatred when they
arrived this morning, but all were en
thuslnstlc. Almest COO of them rolled
and walked in from all points et the
compass. And every man's brother of
them had but one theught: State Col
lege wins tomorrow."
Many of the exuberant youths said
they were here, but candidly admitted
tbey didn't knew juat hew they were
going te get back.
"The Blue and White has the hnblt
of going wherecver it wants," said one
rooter, "nnd you'll see it going ever a
bunch et goals tomorrow."
Scores of the rooters brought two sets
of colors with them. One fcet was worn

Hiked It Over Read
Almest 200 of the "Nlttnny Liens"
started te hike it here, regardless of the
2!H)-mllc stretch. Seme of them get
lifts here nnd there alone the nikc.
Most of these btarted out yesterday 4
morning. They Dunkeu en route
wherever they' could. When they
weren't near a habitation they used
the sky for n ceiling and rolled' up in
their overcoats. ,
"Penn will havr n hard time with
the Lien tomorrow." said Alfred;

"That's our language for this oc ec oc

towering freshie, who snld that .State
slmiily couldn't be stepped.
"If there's going te be any goee
eggs marked up, they won't be laid in
the Lien's Heuee." predicted Hunk
Wallers, of the sephs. "The Liens have
n few tricks which will make their
debut tomorrow,"
Buck nnd Powers, by the wny, struck
it rich when they started out en their
hike. They w.'re trudging the highway
with ether Liens when n big motertiuck
rumbled nleng. The boys stretched
ncre8s the read nnd told the driver the
traffic sign was against him.
The driver, "Bill" Hunter, of Belle Belle

"All right," he snld, "this Is .where
you held me up. Take the whole shin

Hunter gallantly dropped off the
crnft, and Powers, who Is a skilled
driver, took the wheel.
"I'll go along later," said Hunter.
Liens In .Milk Masens
Hundreds of ethers arrived In
similar fashion. Many Hindu the last
stretch of the read in milk wagons.
Thn fellows who came along in petty
Pullmans didn't hnve any fun at all.
Already the hotels are pretty well
Jammed with the Liens. Meney is
plentiful among many of them and the
bets scorned te be even, although there
were semn A te 4 bets in favor of Penn.
After reaching here hundreds of the

Plans te Banisli Alcohol as Bev

National Convention
Te keep America legally dry and work
te banish beverage alcohol from the
whole world, is the program of the
Wemen'a Christian Temperance Union,
Misa Anna A. Gorden, national and
international president, declared this
, e iiauuuui pri'sinrm or me . u. x,
U., Miss Gorden opened the national
convention at 1 -AT o'clock this after
noon in the Arch Street Methodist
Church, Bread and Arch streets.
"The Women's Christian Temperance
Union takes council of Its hopes and
net of its fears'," she said. "We fully
realize the flnnnclal strength of our op
ponents. We also knew thnt the As
sociation Against Prohibition Amend
ment and Mmllnr organizations are ar
rayed against the Constitution of the
United States, while they mav hnve
within their ranks some who differ with
the prohibition forces ns te the best
way te curb the evils growing out of
the liquor traffic, backed by nil the
bootleggers, bums, boeelovcro nnd crim
inals of the Innd. However, we pro
pose te snil en nnd en, until we reach
the sure dry land of world prohibition.
Says Sajoen Is Gene Forever
"Revenus frein. the liquor traffic Is
net needed te hflp run the Govern
ment. Bnrless hotels, far from being
obliged te have te close their doers
for lack of custom, nre se prosjieretis
that they cannot tnke rnre of would-be

that for u period of yenrs ahead we
must mnke stubborn fight for l.iw en
forcement, in which our new uifrau

members of the W. C. T. V. in public

Wrightstown Man Confirms the
Thefts and Awaits
Promisery notes signed unwlttlnglll
by nrmy officers were used te finance
a splurge in the New Yerk curb mar
kct by Hnrry M. Titus, youthful cash-
ier of the First National Bank atf
Wrightstown, N. J., whose accounts!
nre $20,000 short.
Titus, a bridegroom of n few menfhey
has made a clean breast of the whole
affair, nccerdlng te Chnrlcs V. Brown
a national bank examiner of this city
who detected the shortage.
Titus' bride wns Miss Alma RIdff-
way, a daughter of Jehn Rldgwny,
farmer of Columbus, N. J.
At her home In Mount Hellv this)
afternoon Mrs. Titus bravely tried te
mnke the best of the situation.
"Neither of us has anything te)
say," she declared.
Will Stick by Husband
Asked if she intended te rctdrn td
her father's home, she snld she has
made no plans. She will stick by her
husband, she added.
Wlen he snw discovery was Inevit
able, Titun, who is twenty-three years
old and lives in Mount Hellv. went te
the president of the hnnk Wednesday
night nnd confessed. Hp resigned Ira
mediately nnd was allowed te go te
his home te atraigliten out his nffnlrs.
The bank examiner, sent n complete
report of the case today te the United
Stites District Attorney at Trenten.
Meanwhile Titus ii under Burvelllance
at bis home.
Wen Rapid Promotion
Titus wns r.n empleye of the bank
before entering the army during the
World nr. He was known ns a young
man with a keen business sense. nnd
after he was mustered out lie re-entered
the bank's employ. He was appointed
cashier September, 1920.
Many army officers stutiened nt Camp
Dlx nenr Wrightstown were patrons of
the bonk. Several, wejc in the habit of
borrowing agnrnst their pay nlletlncnta
and would give notes covering the
leans. In many instances the leana
were used te buy motorcars.
"Titus made no false entries in the
books," said Mr. Brown. "His method
was te obtain extra notes from the bor
rowers. Fer example, an officer might
give eight notes made against Ins pay
allotments for thnt many months.
"The cashier would contrive te have
the borrower unknowingly sign n ninth,
note und when he needed money he
would put it through the bank in the
rgular way, taking out file cash it

He apparently had no extravagant
habits. He hnd a small automobile,
but he lived modestly.
"He was in his office when I went
te examine the leek. lie showed no
nervousness and guw no indication that
anything wus wieng. I seen found the
Irregularities, but said nothing te him
nbeut it."
Mr. Brown said that in May. 1021,
the young cashier first dipped into fund
that were net his and that iu Febru
ary of this year be began the sam
tactics en a mere extensive scale. The
irregularities are said t" haw con
tinned te within the last week.
Titus made some wrong guesses en
the way the market would jump, ac
