BUCK JONES AT MORLEY THEATRE TONIGHT In "The Circus Cowboy," his est William Fox release, which comes to the Morley Theatre to night, Charles Jones performs one of the most dangerous stunts of his career. Pursued by a posse that suspects him wrongly of- shooting a man, Jones outrides the rest until he comes to a canyon.

Facing death at the hands of his pursuers, he is hard put what to do. The only means out of his difficulty is his lariat. Jones lassoes the stump of a tree across the canyon and then ties the end he holds to another tree. With the chasm gaping thousands of feet below him and with the full realization that one false action means, he will be dashed to death on the rocks below, he makes his way across the canyon by means of this rope, hand over hand. While half way on this perilous trip, a crack shot among the posse severs the rope with a rifle bullet.

Jones clings to the rope and swings to the opposite side chasm smashing against the precipice. He climbs to safety under a shower lead and evades his pursuers. This feat was actually performed during the making of "The Circu Cowboy" and is no photographic de lusion. After the scene was shot Jones looked questionably at Direct or Wellman. "Phew!" was all he said.

SCANNELL BROS. MIDNIGHT SERVICE Until 12 o'clock TIOGA POINT MOTOR Phone 679 Athens, Pa. SAYRE, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1924. PAGE THREE from 8 THE EVENING TIMES CLAIMS LOSS DUE TO DELAY WHILE PUTTING IN ALARM Frank T. Ketter Alleges It Took Five Minutes To Telephone Fire Department Charging that there was unnecessary delay in getting a telephone connection with the fire department when fire broke out in his store Thursday morning, Frank T.

Ketter claims the damage would have been less if it had not been for this delay. Mr. Ketter stated to a Times representative today that he was engaged in a telephone conversation with a Swift Company representative when he learned his place was on fire and that he told the other party to ring off and that it then took him a minute to get Central and then informed her that he wanted the Athens Fire and that she queried, "What do you want?" Mr. Ketter alleges that he then said, "Ketters' store is on fire and want the Athens Fire Department," and that the operator then informed him that she would give him the chief operator. After the chief operator responded, Mr.

Ketter says he repeated the statement that his place was 011 fire and to call the Athens Fire Department, and that he estimates it took five minutes telephone conversation to send in the alarm. Mr. Ketter also stated that he had 110 criticism to make of the Athens Fire Department, and that the efficient work done by the firemen after their arrival prevented a much larger loss to the building and contents than might have been expected.

(United Press) -Starting with a I nucleus of 20,000 union steel work ers, organized labor is going to launch another campaign to bring the 400,000 steel mill employes into the ranks of the American Federation of Labor. All unions connected with the I steel industry will be asked to tribute funds and furnish organizers to undertake the task, according to Michael F. Tighe, veteran leader of the steel workers.

Campaign headquarters already have been established in Cleveland, Bethlehem and Chicago, Tighe said. "We will be somewhat handi-1 capped in our work by the action' of Elbert H. Gary last spring in granting workers in the steel cor-: poration the eight hour a day and a wage increase," Tighe said. "These concessions were given the workers not because of the appeal by the late President Harding, but because Gary knew organized labor was planning another drive on his mills." The annual convention of the federation today was to pass 011 policies and actions of President Samuel Gompers, as head of the labor movement the past year. Cemplete approval of these was predicted.

Endorsem*nt by the delegates off the executive council's report demning the Sherman antitrust law on the ground this statute had been "applied to outlaw the rightful and just collective actions of wage earners through the'unions," was also expected.

22N3t MODERN METHODS BEST Nine-year-old pupils today spell better than pupils of the same age 43. years ago. according to reports from studies made by Boston University. A survey conducted in 1879 in Norfolk county, included three words common to those of the recent survey. The average spelling scores of 9-yearold pupils on "which," "whose," and "too," in 1879 were 69, 54 and 23, respectively.

A spelling contest recently conducted in 78 Massachusetts towns and cities showed that pupils of like age scored 76, 60 and 79, respectively, on the same words. A course in the unification of the kindergarten and the first grade is by Johns Hopkins ins University as a part of its service to elementary teachers. NEW INSTRUMENT FOR CHIROPRACTOR Neurocalometer Records Subluxations of the Backbone The "Neurocalometer," El sensitive instrument for allocating spinal trouble by heat variations, the product of four years' research by Dr. B. J.

Palmer and Dr. D. D. Evins of the Palmer School of Chiropractic, has taken the practice world by storm. The demonstration of the invention at Chiropractic clinics and at the U.

S. Bureau of Standards at Washing ton. D. has created a sensation as did the exhibition of Alexander Graham Bell's telephone at the Philatelpha Centennial Exposi tion in 1876. Based on Hypothesis "The Neruocalometer," stated Dr.

Palmer in discussing the invention, "is based on several fundamental facts in the theory of Chiro-1 practic. Chiropractic rests broadly on four premises. We believe that disease can be traced to subluxations of the vertebrae, to nerve transmissicn. A subluxated vertabra is one partially dislocated'sub' because the dislocation is a minor one or is incomplete. A pressure on a nerve center causes a positive barrier and a negative nerve transmission, which wel seek to remove by an adjustment, of the subluxated part; in.

to bring about a negative pressure and a positive transmission of nerve messages. Detector is Secret. The secret part of the Neurocal-. ometer is the detector which picks up heat fluctuations as it is applied at points along the spinal column. The detector is a small, twobranched instrument, having a left and right, and attached to the main recording box with a wire cord.

The left and right on the detector correspond to the left and right sides of the galvanometer scale. By noting the readings the! Neuracalometer on a chart while; examining a patient, the chiropractor has a definite record of the subluxations of different segments of the backbone. Is Not Electrical. Although the instrument has a Westinghouse appearance, it is not an electrical device nor is it operated by electricity. It is a rating heat recording device, indicating heat diferences on a galvancmeter.

What the mechanism and motive power is has been closely guarded as the secret construction of the French "75." Tested in Washington. When the Neurocalometer was first presented to Chiropractic, tests were made by the United States Bureau of Standards at Washington and the report was returned by experts that it accurlately registered thermal differences of 1-100th cf a degree Centigrade. Dr. B. J.

Palmer has now applied for six patents on the invention in seventeen countries. All are now pending. Orders for the new device are being receivet at the rate of scores a day from chiropractors bore. Each day brine alumni every: The P. S.

C. to inspect the new Daily Times, Davenpert, Iowa, July 1, 1924.) CURLEY IS BARRED FROM RING AFTER FIGHT IN GARDEN NEW YORK, Nov. Curley, Chicago boxing manager. might be said to have suffered the severest blow delivered during the first of the Madison Square Garden elimination contests held here last night to decide upon a suc cessor to the championshiy title vacated by Johnny Dundes, deatherweight. Curley's license was revoked by the New York Boxing Commission and he was barred from New York rings for life as a resu't of a disturbance he created.

Ile was In the corner with Mike Dundee, Rock island featherweight, one of six boxers who appeared in the first elimination rounds. When the decision of the judges was announced against Dundee and in favor of Danny Kramer, a Philadelphia southpaw, Curley kicked the water bucket into the pressbox, stormed across the ring and kicked at the face of Charles Mathison, one of the judges. and then ran back to his corner and kicked Patsy Haley, the referne in the eye. Haley had left the ring and was sitting in the press box awaiting the next bout. Angered spectators swarmed to the ringside and a riot was threat.

ened but deputies of the boxing commission led a charge of spe: cial cops who hurried Curley out of the building. Tex Rickard, promoter of the garden. was charging through the crowd with Lie walking stick swinging over his head when friends pulled him pack from an attack on the manager. Members of the boxing commission were at the ringside and they called an impromptu session and announced that Curley was barred from New York for life. In the other bouts on the PrOgram, Kid Kaplan.
