' That the people ' in general throughout the country are heartily disgusted with drives of all kinds is shown by" almost every daily paper. Hardly a week passes but fhat some one writes an article for publication protesting against the drive method for obtaining funds to some relief organization, worthy or unworthy, not ; only because this scheme runs intb money pretty fast, but because . its popularity as a. war ' emergency has made it equally unpopular now. We have heard no little criticism locally of this method, but there is one drive about which few if any people have anything to say except of a commendatory nature the annual drive for the' Visiting Nurse Association. This is as it should be, for we know of no- one organization ' that is of such vital importance to any town as a visiting nurse. We could go on and tell numerous bene fits which the town derives from this source, but refrain because we believe that the people generally are as well aware of them as we are ourself . ' One little instance of the regard parents have for the visiting nurse will not be amiss, as it reveals only what doctors and undoubtedly many parents have known for some time. A mother recently remarked that she; felt much safer with her child in school than during vacation, because the visiting nurse was always on the job to discover indications of sick ness or disease which only ona - trained in this work would recognize. If the visiting nurse did nothing more than the customary work in the schools she would be worth more to the town rthan the salary she receives. LOCAL BASEBALL. The world's series is no attraction for local baseball fans when the Ca naan and East Canaan teams cross bats for. the championship of the town For many years these two teams have fought for supremacy on the diamond and the brand of baseball played has attracted hundreds from this county and from nearby states. The rivalry is so keen on both sides ' that an outsider would be led to think the winners would collect sev eral hundred dollars each for1 their work, while the fact of the matter - is that the majority of the players of each team are out only to protect or establish a reputation for their team and for the real love of Amer ica's greatest sport. To get together two" such teams as were seen here Saturday requires real work and many is ,the big leaguer who came to this town with the idea of playing with a scrub team and left with the fact firmly estab lished in his upper story that he had witnessed major league ball."

ORfcGS 1VJ t njcds vjOv&'a-t vioaoov) GOTfK pvyr st5PP wk -rue INTERESTED Ki whom neither the manager nor any member of the team will ever for get Another of a different class, however, was Snoover, the Eastern League pitcher who played with East Canaan last Saturday, and many others. While the rivalry between these teams is great, the players have shown their good sportsmanship by playing the game fair and having no animosity toward men of the oppo site side. We are sorry that this cannot be said of all the fans, some of whom let their enthusiasm get the better of their judgment causing some ill feeling. This has been noticeably small during the past year, however, and we hope next year the rivalry will be just as keen, the fans as evenly divided, but above all a spirit of good sportsmanship to temper the enthusiasm of fans, regardless of which team is their choice., We congratulate the managers of both teams for the high class base ball played here the past season, knowing that it has taken an un limited amount of hard work to pro duce it.

Lake, republican candidate for governor, early learn ed what it meant to be a boy on a farm. He did all the work which usually fell to the lot of farm boys in those days and to top things off, walked four miles a day going . to and from the country , schoolhouse. His parents were Thomas A. and Martha A. (Cocking) Lake and when their husky boy was 14 years old, they moved to the West, where he son was graduated from ' the -high school at Stromsburg, Neb. Two years later young Lake was back in the East and was winning honors at the Worcester (Mass.) Polytechnic Institute where he was graduated at the age of 19 with the degree of S. B. in the class of 1890. Then followed two years at Har vard University, where, in 1892, he got his B. A. degree. He also spent a year in the Harvard Law School, but did not finish the course. . It was at Harvard that the youth ful Lake, product of the, farm and technical school, then only 19 years old, made a name for himself, a name that is sung by thousands of athletic fans all over the country, for there is nothing that appeals more than clean, healthy and vigor ous sports. Lake's husky physique made him a marked man at Harvard and the football experts helped him chieve a nation-wide success as a half back. Lake is to Harvard football what Walter G. Camp is to Yale football. In 1890 Lake's aggressiveness and ability landed him on the Harvard team as halfback and in that year Harvard triumphed over Yale. The Yale-Harvard games were then play ed at Hampden Park, Springfield. Lake played at halfback on the two varsity teams in 1891 nd 1892 and for three seasons was an All-Ameri-can halfback along with "Bum" McClug the famous Yale football artist, who liter became treasurer of the Unite'd States. Leaving. his football days at Har vard and the year at the law school, young Lake, at the age of 22 years, went to Hartford where he took a clerical place in the office of the Hartford Lumber Company,' bis fath er's business, and, in his new work displayed the same aggressiveness and ability to master knowledge that had played a part in his scholastic and athletic work. Within a year he had accumulated much knowledge of the lumber business and was made secretary of the company T and in 1896 he was also made treasurer. In 1901 he was elected president of the company and for several years was president-treasurer, but, in recent years, has been president only. But Mr. Lake was not satisfied merely with devoting his energies to business and social activities, for he is also well known as a fraternal so ciety man. To college men all over the country he is known as a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon. His father was prominent in public life, had been a representative from the town of Woodstock in the general assem bly of 1885, had been a member of the and had served as a senator in the session of internal . revenue , in Hartford. Mr. Lake's first venture in public life was in 1900, when ;he was elected to the board of school visi tors, a place which he held, rthree years and where his services were always rendered, for the best inter-, ests of the community. In '1903 he" was elected to the house of repre sentatives and at the next session of the general assembly was present as a senator, being the youngest member but one and "one --of the youngest elected up tq that time. He was elected to the senate from the first district. . The first legislative session he at tended he played a prominent part in the work of the assembly and was chairman of the committee on appro priations and at the next session was 'chairman of the committee on incor porations. Mr. Lake was also chair man of the special committee which planned and carried out the recep tion to the late United States Sena tor O. H. Piatt, an event in which the entire state took part. More political honors came to Mr Lake, for, in 1906 he was . elected lieutenant-governor and as presiding officer of the senate made a record for fair and impartial state officer. In 1908 and 1910 he was a candi date for the gubernational nomina tion. Mr. Lake is known personally to thousands of men all over the state, and is a good judge of human nature, his numerous friends testi fying to that.
