Ir'C!i to t!io Verinunt legishit ure iijiaint too iiiuch centralization of gov erniuep.t in Washington fell upon atten tive ears ami is likely to he remembered when further schemes for federal con trol of road, health and school policies of the states are proposed. Already the amount of money Vermont shall expend on trunk line highways is fixed in Wash imjton without due regard to the ability of the state to expend such sums. It is w ise, however, to accept this federal aid j I because Yermonters are compelled to; contribute their share to the general, federal fund and it would be folly to re-1 fuse to accept a part of this money fiom! the federal government to be expended for the benefit of Vermont. I The latest proposition before congress; for collecting funds from the people and: expending them in the different states is the Smith-Tow ner bill which would cre- a i' a uepartineiu oi education wun me ii ual retinue of officials sitting at desks in Washington ami traveling about the! country at public ex)ense and an annual appropriation of !1MUMH.0(iO for distri bution among the states for the promo tion of education. This sum of JS10O. (inll.OO.'l is to be divided as follows: For the instruction of illiterates. $7.r(M,(tOO : for the Americanization of immigrants, ;7.r.OO,M) ; for equalizing educational opportunities. .S."0,00),00 t ; for physical education. :20.0U0 ; for the prepara tion of teachers in elementary and sec ondary schools, $iri.WUK0. l"nder the plan of allotment Vermont would receive for Americanization of immigrants $27.7(M.17. for the educa tion of illiterates $0,100.02, for equaliz ing of educational oportunities ,$20u, ."02. for physical education !?77,420.4.'l, ami for the preparation f teachers $72, 107. 20. The total annual allotment for Vermont would be $301,837.37, or about one-third of one per cent of the whole fund. There is another thing to be remem bered and that is the federal 'government will require- the states to appropriate equal sums for the various purposes. Un der this arrangement Vermont would be required to expend $141,214.40 each year for preparation of teachers in ele mentary and secondary schools, a much larger sum than it has been spending and quite possibly more than it need to spend for that purpose. Again illiteracy is very small in Vermont compared with the southern states, so the bulk of the money contributed by Yermonters . for the removal of illiteracy would go to other states, principally to the South which has been so uniformly favored ir all Democratic legislation. When it is all summed up Yermonters will find they are likely to get the butt end of the expenses and little of the benefits of this proposed deal and the general government 'will have a large addition to it salary list for govern ment employes. When the facts are un derstood Yermonters will approve Con gressman this bill. (Ireene in his opxtsitiou to Till MKDICAL WO.MKN. Women are advancing .steadily in most occupations and professions, but in none is their progress more marked than in that of medicine. Their accomplish ments ill the past are but slight indica tion of what the future holds for them ami humanity which will benefit by their services. Just the other day two women physi cians, one of them assistant to Dr. Simon Fl?xner of the Rockefeller Instl- I Indeterminate Sentence ) Ui . IU sgf mmm lap" (OoprHctif) tute. returned to this country from six months spent in the interior of the Bel gian Congo, where they had dared hard ships and dangers innumerable to study methods of curing the sleeping sickness. While they have not made the results of their discoveries public, they are known to have obtained valuable infor mation as to means for fighting this mys terious and dreaded malady, which has already made its appearance in this country. The adventures and accomplishments of these women mark a long step for ward for the. medical women. For gen erations the woman doctor has had to hold her own against prejudice anil sus picion within and without the medical ranks. Today she is welcomed and lis tened to with respect in the ordinary lines and also in research experiment and adventure. Iler range in the future will be determined by her ow n desire. The pastor of one of the St. Johns bury churches writes to his local news paper protesting against the character of some of the theatrical advertising seen ou bill boards and in other places. Some who have been observant of the style of theatrical advertising now in vogue will agree with the reverend gentleman in his critic-isms when he says: ''Certainly, a picture featuring 'The World's Most lleautiful Women in Daring Dances, A Pistol Duel on a Dark River, The Depths of Dives and the Heights of High Life," together with the iortrayal of scenes of intrigue and murder is not con ducive to the awakening of a higher sense of morality among the young men and women." When such plays as The Old Homestead and Way Down Fast can still play to full houses after al! these years and a moving picture whose story is based in Will Carlcton's simpb and touching ioeni, Over the Hills te the I'oorhouse, can continue to enter tain crowded houses in New York city after an unprecedented run of six months, it goes to slow that the pub lie is as ready as ever to patronize the sweet, sane and wholesome theatrical production, and the wonder is that the play and scenario writers do not real ize it more thoroughly. The scenes and plots as set forth by much of the adver tising of today must tend to keep many away from the productions themselves. The Randolph Herald evidently be lieves in keeping the. political iot boil ing and is suggesting as a candidate for our next governor Judge John K. Weeks. While there is no doubt about the quali fications of the Herald's choice, a great many things are likely to happen be tween now and the time for naming Gov ernor Ilartness's successor. The overseer of Zion City says there must le more marriages among his floek. but no rank outsiders must be allowed to come in. There's no danger. Zion City is ''lione dry," smoking is forbidden, the ban's on chewing gum. playing card can't be sold, women can't iowder or wear low-necked gowns. The most thoughtful man might be said to be the county treasurer of Pitts burgh, who has arranged for a room ad jacent to the cashier's office where worn en may retire to retrieve their cash from their stockings. Owing to the recent crime wave this hiding place is said to have become more yopular than ever. The announcement of Calvin Coolidge vice president-elect, that he is in entire harmony with the expressed wishes of Mr. Harding to have the inaugural cere monies simple and free from extrava gance is quite in keeping with what we already know of the man.

One of the methods that have proved to work well is that of organizing an advertising bureau. This is the way one successful firm manages: There are three young women in i the firm, who have incorporated under I a certain firm name. One of these is the business manager. The second is the seeker after necessary material. whether data or pnotographs. sue hunts up the material required by a writer for a certain story, the Illus trations needed to go with such an article, she makes sure of important details that are to be used in press stories. The third partner finds the people who are to do the a?tual work, the writing, the Illustrating. She plans work ahead, sees those who want publicity, arranges .interviews, and attends to all the social side of the business. One of them worked for a year as n reporter on a great daily. She learned a lot about publicity there, and how to tell a good story, a news story, when she saw It. The other girls had been employed In business offices. But they had taken these positions simply with a view of getting required train ing. "I always meant to get into busi ness for myself, and so did ray asso ciates," one of them told me. "A girl needs to get Into a good office and keep her eyes open and her wits alive, before she tackles something of her own. But I believe that any girl who Is intelligent and ambitious, and who Is willing to spend a year or two of hard business training. Is sure to make good in a business of her own. And she will be much more likely to make real money and to have a chance to make tire very best of her self In a business of her own than In any salaried -job." j But I shouldn't advise any girl w ho I doesn't, like hard work to follow such an example, for you don't count hours or effort where It's your own firm. , (Copyright.)

The use of the word 'often" in this manner is incorrect ; ilie dictionaries mention it, but they call such use "archaic," which means outworn, or antiquated. "Often" is an adverb, or modifier of a verb, and aieatis "on frequent or numerous oc casions; many a time; frequently" (Standard Dictionary). It should not te used as an adjective, or a modifier if a noun, as in the phrase quoted. For "often," as used there, substitute "frequent," the only adjective that , may be used correctly in this sense, j In this connection It may be well to note that the word "often" is fre oiieu is in- i generally 't" should not quently perhaps even mispronounced.
