W.R.KNAPPPOST
RECEIVES FLAG
FROM RELIEF CORPS
Addresses from Chaplains
Moody and Adams and
Col. Fairbanks
A notable feature of the regular
meeting of W. R. Knann Post of the
American Legion at Red Men's Hall
Tuesday evening was the presenta
tion to the post of a beautiful Am
erican flag by the Chamberlin belief
Corps. The flag was presented h"
Mrs. Wakefield in a speech full ol pa
triotism and accepted verv felicitous
ly by the commander of the post. Ha
rold G. Powell. The. flag was in
charge of the Sergeant-at-Arms, W.
H. Clifford, during the ceremony.
Following the presentation there
were short and very encouraging ad
dresses from the three visitors pres
ent, Chaplain Taul 1). Moody of
New York rjty, Chaplain Chauncey
A. Adams of Danville and Col. Jo
seph Fairbanks. Mr. Adams congrat
ulated the post on their splendid re
cord for membership, and said - lie
hoped the members would keep un
the high ideals of their organization.
Mr. Moody said that although the
boys had discarded the uniform there
was a large amount of reconstruction
work to be done and he i'clt sure th.,t
the St. Johnsbury post would ring
tiuc. . Col. Fairbanks congratulatri
the members of the post upon receiv
ing the flag and said that he believed
that eventually the people of St.
Johnsbury would erect a suitable
memorial to the young men that en
listed in the world war.
Collection of Rare
Orchids at Museum
While the flower calendar at the
Museum shows each native species as
it appears, snccial effort is made to
show the native orchids. Forty of the;
51 species known to Vermont grow
within a radius of five miles of the
Museum. A few specimens of each,
carefully cut, are displayed each sea
son and the roots carefully safe
guarded, that future generations may
actually know what a northern or
chid is.
Just now there are shown on the
tables ten species, as follows: Large
coral root, early coral root, heart
leaved twayblde, long-bracted green
orchis, yellow-lipped ladies' tresses,
tall white bog orchis, greenish-white
bog orchis, tall leafy green orchis,
northern bog orchis and showy ladv's
slinper. The showy lady's slipper is
the last of the series of lady slip
per. A few weeks ago the Museum and
its friends were much indebted to
Robert L. Stone of the Vermont For
estry Department, for a fine collec
tion of large yellow lady's slipper,
which he sent from Sharon, Vt,
The fringed orchids will be the
next in the succession and are pecu-'
liar to July. The lateness of the
spring brings many earlier species
into this month, so, for 1920 at least,
we may call July a month of or
chids. Brooklyn Scouts
Visit St. Johnsbury
Four Boy Scouts from Troop 81,
Brooklyn, N. Y., snent a part of
Tuesday in St. Johnsburv on their!
way to Montreal. The boys are on.

ler, Ast. Scout Master and Eagle
Scout; Frank Malone, Life and Star
Scout; Sam Stewart, Merit Badge
Scout, and James Critchle They
passed through St. Johnsbury on
their ninth, day feelin.r quite fit and
ambitious for the rest of their trip,
which they estimate will take three
weeks.
AMENDMENT
INVADES STATE
CONSTITUTION
Governor
for
Refers to Lobby
Proposal to
Change
In a proclamation nearly two col
umns long Gov. Clement states his
reasons for not calling a special ses
sion of the Vermont Legislature to
make possible the ratification of the
federal amendment for woman suf
frage. The Governor says in part:
Gov. Clement in his proclamation
declared that the federal constitu
tion "as it stands and is interpreted
by the supreme court today threatens
the foundation of free popular gov
ernment." The proclamation said
in part:
"The provisions for changes in the
federal constitution, to which we
Vermonters are loyal subscribers,
are in conflict with those laid down
in the constitution of Vermont. The
federal constitution provides that
proposals for change therein shall, if
favorable action is taken thereon by
the Conress, be submitted to the leg
islatures of the several states for
their action, and the supreme court
of the United States has in a recent
decision, Hawke Versus Smith, June
1st, 1920, declared:
" 'The referendum provisions of
slate constitutions and satutes can
not be applied, consistently, with the
constitution of the United States in
the ratification orrcjection of amend
ments to it.'
"This decision leaves the people at
the mercy of any group of men who
may lobby a proposal for change in
the federal constitution through
Congress and then through the legis
latures of the states.
"In the face of this situation I
am asked to call the legislature of
Vermont into extraordinary session,
not for the purpose of debating, con
sidering deliberating on the question
at issue, but with a majority of its
members -dodged beforehand and in
private, as I understand it, to ratify
the proposed amendment.
"If the peonle of Vermont, in ac
cepting a place in the union of states,
inadvertently lost in whole or in part
the right of self-government and
conferred it on a legislature, there
i all the -mora i casonywhv a legislar
turn should not pass upon a question
which has arisen since their election
and upon which their constituents
have had no opportunity to express
themselves.
"We must now either remodel our
own constitution to conform with the
mandate of the sunreme court of the
United States, or the constitution of
the United States must be amended
to f)vido for a referendum to the
frcoTncn of the several states before
amendments to that constitution be
come effective. As it stands and is in
terpreted bv the supreme court to
day, the federal constitution threat
ens the foundation of free popular
government.
"The seventh amendment, provid
ing for federal income tax, was lob-
fied through Congress and the state
legislatures by federal agents. The
18th amendment, for federal proh:bi-
tion, was forced through Congress
and the state legislature by a power-
ful and irresponsible organization, op-
erating through paid agents with un
limited funds. It is now proposed to
force through the 19th amendment,-
n - !
for woman suffrage, in the same
manner and also without the sancticn
of the freemen.
"I have been asked to overlook
these considerations as a matter of
party that invades a well-established
of principle, not expediency, and the
paty that invades a well-established
principle of popular government will
suffer in the end."
Death of a Former
Resident of Wheelock
Daniel S. Jones, a fromer resident
of Wheelock, died June 19 in Loam
shire Hospital, Santa Monica, Cal.,
following a serious operation. He had
bpent the last 17 winters in Califor
nia and many summers in the East
at the home of his daughter, Mrs. A.
S. Bartlett, at 50 Concord Avenue,
St. Johnsbury. He was a veteran of
the Civil War, having enlisted Sept.
12, 1861, in Co. E., Sixth Vermont re
giment. He is survived by six daughters,
Mrs. A. S. Bartlett, Mrs. F. A.
Shippee of Holliston, Mass, Mrs G.
R. Barnsted of Stoneham, Mass., Mrs
G. E. Truzzell and Miss Virginia
Jones of Long Beach, Cal., Miss
Grace?Jones of Venice, Cal. The fun
eral services were held the following
Tuesday, the remains cremated and
the ashes sent to Holliston, Mass., for
internment in the family lot.

Entertain Thursday
As previous'- announced Gov. Cal
vin Coolidge of Massachusetts, the
nominee for vice-president on the re
publican ticket, will keen open house
at his father's home in Plymouth
Thursday afternoon from 1 to 3
o'clock to all Vermonters. There is
every prospect of a large delegation
from all parts of the state and quite
a number arc planning to attend
from St. Johnsbury. The affair was

republican national committee, and
by many of the leaders of the party

RURAL LIFE
IN GOVERNOR
COOLIDGE'SHOMF.
Bears Taken In Spring
Traps and Deer Mix
With Cattle
An editorial writer of the New
York Times is up in Gov. Coolidge's
old home in Windsor county and des
cribes its rustic simplicity as follows:
Governor Calvin Coolidge of Mass
achusetts, perhaps the most modest
man who ever held public office, is
back home in Plymouth Notch, in a
region where Bruin is taken in spring-
traps every year and where deer feed
with cattle in the rock pastures. As
Mr. Coolidge has always shunned the
limelight of 'Who's Who," he is
likely to meet neighbors who do not
know that he has been nominated for
Vice President, and who will never
know it froln, his lips.' It is a large,
wild, unconventional township in the
heart of the Green Mountains, of
rough farms and lonely farmhouses..
The call of Bob White is heard in
season, but never the whistle of a
locomotive, except faintly at times on
the wings of a south wind coming up
from Ludlow, six miles away from
Tyson, a Plymouth settlement and
out post. A Plymouth man is passing
rich on a few hundred dollars a year.
All men are equal in the local view
and addressed by a shortened first
name. The Governor of Massachu
setts is .Cal. to the fathers of the ham
let, and thev must wonder why such
a, quiet,. no-acco.unjt chap happened to
be nominated for the job ot vice
President, as they learn by the Rut
land paper, R. F. D. Those who do
not take a paper will be told by Sum
mer visitors of the honor dons Ply
mouth. Everybody in Pcacham has heard of
Colonel Harvey, and everybody in
Grafton of John Barrett. But Cal
vin Coolidge will have to be elected
Vice President to be generally known
in secluded Plymouth, which is part
ly the fault of the Governor of Mass
achusetts.
Plymouth is mainly forest and
mountains, with small lakes, mere
mountain mirrors, strung along the!
Black river. It is one of the most
beautiful regions m all New England.
There is a view from every hillisde,
und there are more hill sides than can
be counted. It is a paradise for walk
ers and for trout fishermen. Any one
with a bent pin can catch trout in the
Ottaquecchie before the July heats,
Killington peak looms into the sky to
lure climbers

Mountains and Lake Champlain, with

be seen. Under the rock peak is a
spring with a temperature of 38 de
grees on a sweltering day. Calvin
Coolidge must have gone up Killing
ton by the Juggernaut Trail in his
boyhood. By following the brook un
til it is so small it trickles through
the moss and ferns no one need get
lost. There are the Pico peaks and
Saltash mountain for variety.
If the Governor does not want to
follow the blazed trail, he can lie
in the shade of an abandoned orch
ard, with a fair chance to see deer
feeding. It is a restful occupation.
It is said that he will help his father
in the haying. But in those hill pas
tures the wagon is often t.lted up by
the steepness of the slope, and pitch
ing hay becomes a muscular perfor
mance .perhaps a little too hard for
a man who has to write a speech ac
cepting a nomination for Vice Presi
dent. If Calvin Coolidge had stayed on
the old homestead at Plymouth Notch
he would be more interested in the
price of milk and of hay per ton than
in the Peace Treaty and the Covenant
and he might have taken his turn in
going to the Legislature at Montpel
ier, which would have been his ut
most dignity. But he migrated and
had "faith in Massachusetts," which
he now enjoys upon others.
Whatever he is, whatever he be
comes, Plymouth, the old-fashioned
townships in the back country of the
Vermont hills, will have a share in his
fame. The composure of its silent
places, the strength of its mountain
forms, entered into his character, and
the simplicity of its plain folk has
been impressed upon his commerce
with men as he toiled up the trail to
renown.'" Calvin Coofidge will have
other vacations, but none to be re
membered with more satisfaction than
the return to the haunts of his Doy-

offered concise and practical advice
on child care, and two tables held
literature for free distribution. Part
of the exhibit has been dacod in
the Burke Mountain Clubhouse so
that others may benefit therefrom.
The contest was arranged by the
East Burke branch of the Caledonia
Frnn Bureau aecordin" to directions
of the Better Babies Bureau of the
Woman's Home Comnanion, which
furnished its standard score card and
prizes, nosters and -amnblets. The
puvnosn of the cort.pst is intructive

The local manager of the rontest
Mvi. Walter A. Nelson, Mrs. Roy A.

grateful to the many who assisted
willingly, especiall" the doctors.
A "front porch" campaign is fa
vored by mnnv people for the presi

prefer a back, door plan.
The ponular theory of how to "et

the noliticians, instead of demon
