THINKS REPORT OF CASE INCORRECT County Agent Harvey Says Account or Auto Prosecution in Reformer Tended to Magnify Facts. Editor of The Reformer: Sometimes we are apt to make moun tains out of ant hills. The item which appeared in The Reformer last evening certainly had that tendency. Automobile tail lights will go out in spite of the fact that according to the law they ought not to. Anyone would judge that from the above-mentioned, article, I am a rather uncivil sort of a person: Mr. Whitney did not ask me why my tail light was out. but stopped me without having to run his car across my path, demanded my name, occupation. license number, etc. it was brought out in the court room yesterday that 1 had a perfect right to ask upon what authority 1 was being stopped. It was not until after this pro cedure that I was told why I was being stopped, and thet only after I had asked for the information. The state's nttorney did not ask me to repair my light, but I did so promptly and proceeded. I admit lieing found with an extin guished light, have paid the costs as re quired. anil had the write-up in the daily paper been based on what actually Imp lied in court nothing more would have been said, but inasmuch as this was not so 1 feel that I owe the public an explana tion. R. W. HARVEY, County Agent. Brattleboro, June 15. Editor of the Brattleboro Reformer: 1 have observed your article of June 14. entitled "Fined for Not Having Rear Light." and wish to brand the allegations as to County Agent It. W. Harvey's con duct as false. There has either been deliberate falsehood or gross misrepresen tation. Mr. Harvey, when signalled by Mr. Whitney's car. made no attempt to get away or to block the road and Mopped as soon as hailed by Mr. Whitney. The latter never turned his car across the (road as he did not pass Mr. Harvey Whltner did liOt toll the cause of the holdup at first, but demanded Mr. Harvey's name. Th lafe- ter naturally asked the authority of this demand. That the tail light was out is admitted, but any other offense is denied. I would like to sk why the other party stopped simultaneously with the c;unty agent's car was not prosecuted as this party also had no tail light. 1 hold the number of this car. Mr. Whitney must also have met or passed at least six other cars without rear lights within the next half hour. Whv not impartial jus tice? Mr. Whitney claims to have been speeding to reacn it -hospital on a neces- sary errand It seems rather queer that and repass ns which indicates that this hospital errand was anything but urgent. T. F. HARVEY. Iloucestcr, Mass. Brattleboro, June 1". Since the aecuracv of The Reformer's report of the Harvev case has been ones- bx in the booth. I he fact was re tioned. which case was reported the same Ported to Manager Eldridge, who made as all other court cases are reported- wit hout fear or favor it may be said that additional facts which came out at the trial might have been stated had they seemed material to the case in hand. For instance, the county agent, shortly after Pleading guilty, told the court that he had been advised that he ought not to have pleaded guiltv. State's Attornev Whit-! ney, who previously had said that he sounded his horn for the road but without success, thereupon told the court that if Mr. Harvey wished to change his plea he would bring a complaint against bun for sjM'eding bis car. It may be said fur ther that The Reformer is under no obli gation to confine itself in reports of legal prosecutions to what actually develops in court. Ed.

The young man drove his automobile to the Hiusdale end of the railroad bridge, there being no highway bridge at this village. Then he walked across the bridge and came up the railroad yard to the station. He and Miss DeWitt started back across the bridge and had gotten well on to the Mructuro when a freight train approached from the south. They stepped out on the first platform built for the safety of persons crossing the bridge, and the train passed.

CLASS DAY THIS WEEKSATURDAY Opening Feature of High School Commencement Program GRADUATION ON TUESDAY EVENING State Commissioner of Education to Give. Graduation Address Tickets Necessarily Limited This Year Be tween 65 and 70 in Class. Commencement exercises of the Brat tleboro high school, which will mean this year the graduation of the largest class in the history of the school, will begin Friday night of this week with the junior prom and will close Wednesday night, June 22, with the annual alumni reunion. Contrary to. the usual custom, class day exercises will be held Saturday, but the graduation exercises will be held as usual Tuesday night in the Auditorium. Because of the unusually large class which numbers between 65 and 70, it has been a perplexing problem to ar range the matter of invitations equitably among the graduates, and the number allowed to each is the smallest ever issuer. only seven being issued to each member of the senior class. In order to make even this allotment possible it has been necessary for. Principal J. E. Warren to cut down materially the general list of invitations which have been sent out heretofore,- a ttep which could not be avoided, because of lack of seating accom modations. Another unavoidable change in the ar rangement of the program of commence- jment exercises was the changing of class day to Saturday. This is because of the 'fact that several members of the, class j who have parts on the program neees Jsarily will be out of town taking college . . t i i rr entrance eAuuiiiiaiions -ionaay ana .lueji day.
