Preparations for the inauguration next March are taking shape and the indications are that the display of civic organizations and uniformed bodies in the next pa rade will eclipse anything ever seen in this city. It is too early yet to expect applications In great numbers for places in the parade but the chair man of the committee hopes that those organizations expecting to take part will make applications early for place In line, so that everybody will be sat isfied, lie said that those who came in late must be content with such position as may be accorded them. Senator Butterworth of New Haven has been in town and has secured an option on the building lately occupied by the district officers as headquarters for the Tat't clubs of Connecticut. This building is centrally located about midway between the. White house and the capltol building. Governor Lilley and his staff are expected to be pres ent. It has been some time since Con necticut was represented as it should be at an inauguration. Four years ago one company of national guard from Norwich was the sole represen tative of the Mate.
