forming address on the important
work that his department is doing.

the great variey in his work. M'
I.uttlt's said his department had the
administration of the workmen's com
pensation act, the child labor act, the
weekly payment act and the inspec
tion of factories. He then In icily re
viewed the history of the legislation
in thin country along these lines, saying-
that the first employers' liability
act was passed in lDOfi and the fii-st
workmen's compensation legislation
five years later, now the latter was in
force in all but sis of the United
States, lie .said that more atten
tion than ever was no directed to
the prevention of industrial accideius
and made the startling statement that
three times as many people were ac
cidentally killed in the United States
than wore killed in the same period !
by the war. In closing he olfercd j
somo suggestions for improving the I
. 1 ..(' IK.. ,.i '
said he believed these laws v.-cic
bringing out beUer industrial rela
tions between labor and capital.

Hoy N. Howard; trcas., James A.
lmpey; executive com., Dale S. At

W. Hawkinson on the violin.
The refreshments which followed
consisted of some of Mr. Gary's new
sugar on snow and doughnuts and
colTi'O and the 5(1. men present at the
meeting greatly enjoyed the closing
feature of the evening's program a.;
well as Mr. Buttles' address.
Athletic Association to he
Formed at Scale Shops
A movement to organize an athletic
association has started in the a Fir
banks scale factory and those who
have proposed such an organization i
are meeting with much encourage-
meat both from the management and j
the employes. An ell'ort is being
made to get Charles Hoernlo back
here from Norwich University to take
general charge of the sports and I
coach the base ball team. It is the '
hope of the promoters that after the'
organization is perfected a bas-e ball j
league can be formed in this section j
and games arranged through the sum- j
mer with nine from various towns in;

While most other cities and towns
have given generous recognition of
themcn who served so brilliantly in
the Great War, St. Johnsbury has
started no movement to erect a mem-
. orial or to make any permanent monu
mont of tho great sen-ice of her ex
soldiers.. With no feeling or resent
ment or unappreciation of the spirit
of the citizens, the American Legion
has taken upon itself the work of
raising some money to hire suitable
quarters where they can meet and
keep their organization intact. Their
first move in this direction is tin
Easter Ball gven to raise funds to
wards furnishing and maintaining
some suitable meeting place.
' The response as indicated in the'
i sale of ball tickets has beon slow.
; The friends of the Legion-boys be
lieve this must be 'due to a lack of
i knowledge of what the Legion is at
tempting to accomplish. The Legion
' stands for the highest ideals of the
community and is working to pcrpct
1 uatc the very things for which they
faced death in the.treiiches in France.
, The City of Bane has shown its
appreciation of its ex-soldiers in giv
' ing the boys a fine building. Mont-
pelier has established a comfortable
1 meeting place, for its soldiers,
i It would seem that the least that
: SI. Johnsbury can do is to buy gen
erously of the tickets offered to the
1 Easter ball and work in evciy way to
'make the first public affair of the Lc-i
gion a huge financial success. The
ex-soldier boys are not asking charity
They are willing lo work for wliat
