400,000 World War Vets
Were Out of Work March 1st
NEW YORK, March lS.i-There were
400.000 veterans of the World war out of
woi'k in the United States on March :1
last, according to an estimate received by
the American Legion. This is a reduc
tion -of about 100,000 from the "peak" of
more than 500,000 jobless ex-service men
in the country shortly after January 1 last
and the Legion reports state there is
promise of further improvement.
The survey of the national situation on
which these figures are based was made
by the American Legion Weekly, official
publication of the Legion which states
that the unemployment situation as affect
ing the veterans "appears to have taken a
turn for the better."
A chain of employment agencies oper
ated by the Legion in every state has
done much to relieve the situation, say
the Legion officials. The Legion has been
instrumental in obtaining work for vet
erans, in discouraging the migration of
unemployed men toward the great indus
trial centers and has encouraged a move
ment from cities to the farms. It has de
manded that workers who left their posi
tions to go to war should enjoy senority
rights on a par with those of military
age who stayed at home.
Ex-service men have suffered more in
proportion to their numbers than other
workers, according to the Legion's survey,
because of the operation of seniority rules
and efficiency standards, a early a year
is required for the returned veteran to get
back to his old stride in industry, accord
ing to the testimony of large employers of
labor. Another thing that has handi
capped the ex-soldier is his restlessness
and nomadic tendencies, both products of
the strain and circumstances of war ser
INCOME TAX TOTAL
NOT EVEN ESTIMATED
Officials Noncommittel on Theories That
Receipts Have Fallen a Bil
lion or More.
WASHINGTON. March, lS.-rln spite
of theories that the receipts from the in
come and profits taxes had dropped $1,
MK),MK,0M to $ 1 ,.OO.0OO.00O below the
receipts of last year, officials of the bu
reau of internal revenue refuse to com
The fear that business would be affect
ed bv reports, which are necessarily yet
entirely speculative, actuated the offi
cials. They said that if they should an
nounce a theory that the taies would
be adequate to meet the needs of the gov
ernment, that business might then imme
diately conclude that congress proposed
to reduce taxation, and this would prove
disastrous if business should arrange its
finances on this theory, only to find that
the situation was reversed. On the
other hand it would depress business and
industry exceedingly if it should be
stated that the returns were far below
expectations, because this !tni(;tit fore
shadow new and even higher taxation.
It is practically impossible yet. offi
cials said, to ascertain the amount taken
in Tuesday in the first tax day of the
calendar year. The thousands of returns
made have not even been counted, nor
has the amount of money collected been
estimated. It is said that it will take
two or three months to make the compu
tations so eagerly sought on all sides.
The bureau of internal revenue will
bend its best efforts to this great task,
for the finance committees of congress !
and the house ami senate themselves are
very anxious to have these bases to pro- i
ceed upon in revising the rev
Officials generally believe that what
ever drop in receipts may be shown will
come largely through the higher brack
ets. These brackets have yielded noth
ing like the revenue expected from them,
due to the fact that the wealthy have,
to a great extent, invested their capital
in non-taxable securities. Predictions
were made last winter that these classi
fications would show an even greater de
crease than they did in the tax returns
made in 1!2() for the income of 11)10.

The island is l.'J miles long and four
miles wide. Vegetation is abundant.
Many kinds of fruits thrive there and the
sea in the vicinity swarms with a species
of codfish and quantities of seals, accord

The actual original of Defoe's story of

quarreled wjth his skipper and was ma

Reopening of factories and mills in the,
textile regions of New England and in the
mining and industrial centers of Penn
sylvania leads observers in those parts to
believe the worst is past, according to the
Legion's survey. The automobile centers
of Detroit, Cleveland and Indianapolis
report a slight improvement of conditions.
In Chicago conditions are stationary it is
Throughout the agricultural middle west
a general movement from the cities and
towns . to the farms is reported. The
average ex-soldier had little taste for
agriculture when he came back from the
war. It was hard to keep them down on
the farm after they had "seen Paree."
They chose to work in the small factories
or stores in the neighboring county seat,
where, during 1919, jobs were plenty and
wages high. When those jobs began to go
there was at first an exodus toward the
larger cities. The Legion strove to dis
courage this. That movement has about
spent itself and farmers throughout the
west now report little difficulty in getting
help, and except in the larger cities there
are few able-bodied ex-service men re
ported out of work in the middle west. :
The south reports improvement. Dixie
has been burdened with a larger quota of
winter floaters than usual this year, ac
cording to reports. Some are now finding
farm work in the south, others are drift
ing north, largely to settle on farms.
The Pacific coast, a land where there
are the three great seasonable occupations
of fishing, lumbering and fruit raising, has
been able to decrease the number of job
less veterans by half in two months, ac
cording to advices from there. In Wash
ington state there were 7,000 unemployed
veterans on January 1 and 2,000 oa Feb-

the Proutv and Mead campaign particu
larly at the time of the state conventions.
He caused a laugh by saying that the gen
tleman from Rochester had been trying
since 18'.G to represent his town, but
never was able to make it until the pri
marv went into effect.
Mr. Noble of West Rutland said there
was a "nigger in the wood-pile" when all
the big towns were advocating the pri
mary. He urged the little towns to take
care of themselves.
Mr. Keyes of Reading electrified a
somewhat weary audience by comparing
Fairbans, Dillingham and Proctor with
Graham and Clement.
"In the days of the caucus and conven
tion," he said, 'wc didn't have to open the
doors of a prison or send a man to Mont
pelier who had to have a guide to show
him the different rooms in the state
house. Politics live and survive under
the primary, and it is of record that 100
ladies participated in a caucus in the city
of Burlington and walked auyiy undefUed.
The so-called mandate from the people is
no more sacred than that under which we
come here ourselves."
lie alleged that the manufacturing
towns and towns where the majority of
the voters don't have Vermont blood in
their veins controlled the primaries and

Mr. Feet of St. George called attentii
to the eloquent protest of a woman at a
hearing on the primary and urged the
members to give them a fair trial at vot
ing under the primary.
Stearns Rill Advanced.
The debate on the Stearns bill was led
by the author, the gentleman from John
son, who explained that the bill and
amendments had been mostly drawn by
Dr. E. D. Collins of Middlebury college,
lie alleged that the teacher training
courses were well safeguarded by the bill
and that the provision for scholarships in
Middlebury and the University of Ver
mont took care of the college training.
Mr. Stearns said he had talked with
Mr. Howland of the state board of educa
tion, who said that if the normal school
bill passed he and the other members of
the board would give it their enthusiastic
support or tender their resignations to
the governor. He declared that the build
ings were ready for occupancy next fall
and again repeated his charges that the
schools had not had fair treatment in the
Mr. Wishart of Barrc city, in speaking
of the probable fate of the bill in the
senate, said it would not have a very long
life after the rude handling the teachers'
college bill had received in the house and
now that the state board of education had
been told where to get off. He thought
the passing of the Stearns bill would
merely add fuel to the flames and that if
it were defeated a bill could be drawn up
that would be satisfactory to both parties.
Mr. Simpson of Sheffield said the com
mittee never saw some of the amendments
proposed and called attention to the fact
that a mere trifling detail of increasing
the appropriation $40,000 had been pro
posed since the committee voted on it.
Mr. Connal of Newport admitted that
Dr. Collins had composed the amendments
and that the two added sections had not
been passed on by any member of either
committee but himself. Mr. Connel also
explained other provisions of the bill at
length and made advantageous compari
sons between the equipments at Johnson
and Castleton and where other normal
schools were located.
After Mr. Webb of Shelburne had
moved that debate cease the vote was
taken by roll-call on the Darlington
amendments, which were adopted 1U to
54 on a yea and nay vote. -

for a training school to be of not less than
10 pupils and inserting a provision to per
mit the state board of education to estab
lish or authorize such schools as they see
When Mr. Stearns opposed the amend
ment, Mr. Carpenter of Cabot alleged that
tne elimination of the teacher training
classes was part of the Stearns plan. "The
gentleman from Johnson has showed his
hand," aid Mrs. Carpenter, "and the plan
of the proponents. of this bill is finally to
drive all the training classes into the
Mr. Rarber of P.rattleboro followed
along the same line, alleging that the pro
ponents of II-OS had never even consulted
the state board of education.
"Is it fair," demanded Uarber, "to throw
a monkey wrench into this most important
part of the state's machinery. V" He
called attention to the cost of gradnating
pupils from Castleton and Johnson and
said the training classes, in comparison
had saved the state from $40,000 to

injuring the training classes and said the
amendment was just one attempt to dis

reading by a vote of 151 to 4S.
$;10,000 for State Fair Raras.
On the bill to appropriate $".0,000 for
new barns on the state fair grounds
Ul-iSdn, which the committee hail re
duced from the original 50,000, Mr.
Pollard of Cavendish opened a lively
barrage, declaring that the original
amount was sufficient to put lace curtains
on all the windows. He proposed to re-
aueivtue amount to .M0.OOO and so moved
in which he was supported by Mr. Iar-
rows of Barton, and the house adjourned
for noon with debate still m progress.
Messrs. McKinley of Stowe. O'Brien of
South Burlington, Iladley of Craftsbury
Murray of Berlin. Smith of Barre town
and Keyes of Reading opposed the amend
ment on the ground that the barns were
already in such shape that owners of high
grade herds would not exhibit them any
longer. A case was cited in which six
blooded cattle had taken pneumonia and
one $100,000-herd of Guernseys had been
taken away and would never be exhib
ited again unless the barns were rebuilt.
lhe amendment was lost on a division,
7G to 102, the committee amendment was
adopted and the bill went to third reading
Dy a very close vote.
Among the bills killed in the senate
yesterday was II-1H3, to reduce the salary
of the commissioner of education, which
was rejected unanimously, not a voice be
