THOUSAND TEACHERS ATTEND
Sixty-second Annual Convention of
the State Association at Montpelier
Montpelier, Oct. 20. Upwards of
a thousand school teachers are pres

the Vermont State Teachers' associ

here yesterday afternoon, the larg

filled to the doors. Mayor Ballard
welcomed the teachers and the re-

The principal address was delivered
by Rev. E. C. Luther of Trinity col

"Perhaps this title should read,

time in our pupils lives? The most
evident loss of time in the education
al industry is the time that is not
devoted to it.
"Heaven forbid that I should seek
to reduce childhood to the treadmill
of the constant study of books or to
deprive our boys tnii fclrlt, of lht-lr
divine right to ample play time. But
I do believe that our vacations are
longer than can well be afforded and
that the dally sessions might be ad
ded to without harm to the pupils
without depriving them of one desir
able particle of the joy that is the
heritage of youth. In fact, I be
lieve most children might almost
welcome such a change as that sug

by a plan which should keep them

with those which must be devoted to

ARGUES FOR REFERENDUM
Oregon's Defense Based Upon Recog
nition of its Legality
Washington, Oct. 19. Oregon's de
fense of the Initiative and referen

presented to the Supreme court of
the United States in the shape of a
brief by Attorney General Crawford
of that Btate. The brief is a reply
to the attack by the Pacific States
Telephone and Telegraph company
on the constitutionality of the meth
According to Mr. Crawford, the
question of whether the initiative
and referendum method violates the
clause of the Federal Constitution
which guarantees to each state a
republican form of government is
political one for Congress and the
President to pass upon, and not a
judicial one for the courts to decide.
The attorney General argues that
the political branch of the Federal
Government has already decided that

he argues in this connection." When
new states are admitted the presi
dent and congress pass upon the
form of government presented by the
proposed state, and have in several
instances approved State Constitu
tions reserving the identical powers
