ATHLETICS CLOSE SEASON TOMORROW Millers Falls with "Dug" Smith in Line up to lie Opposing Team Real Battle Anticipated. The Brattleboro Athletics will close their season tomorrow afternoon. They hare booked for the closing attraction Millers Falls with the famous "Dug" Smith in the lineup. Whether "Dug'' will do the pitching is not known, but with this player on the team Millers Falls has always been a hard proposition, and the locals anticipate that this will be no exception to the rule. The Athletics have been playing a fast game this season and at the present time are traveling faster and hitting harder than at any other time this season. Millers Falls was defeated earlier in the season by the locals and is deter mined to even up the score, while the Athletics are just as determined to send them back without a win. At any rate, whoever wins it should be a real honest-to-good ness battle and as this is to be the last game of the Ath letics' peason a word to the wise should be sufficient. Incidentally, this is pretty fine weather to be outdoors and at the same time get in on a real ball game. Last call of the season ! All up I NEWFANE. Yesterday's Sporting Events.

Gardner of Brattleboro Man Tells Wom en Voters of Needed Reforms WOULD MERGE ALL DEPARTMENTS Toa Many Commissions Expending State .Money Independently Should Be Check on Expenditures Miss Ross and Jeffrey Tell of State Prisoners. BURLINGTON, 4ept. 17 Frank E. Barber, chairman of the appropriations committee in the house of representatives in the legislature of 1024 was the prin cipal speaker yesterday at the closing session of the citizenship conference at University of Vermont, held under the auspices of the League of Women Voters. Mr. Barber said: "The time has come when we have got to have an executive who will devote his entire time to the state's business.. We now have an income mounting up into the millions. The governor should hand in to the legislature a report showing just where the state stands financially and estimating how mneh money it will take to run the state's affairs during the com ing two years. A limit should be set for expenditures and then the legislature should keep within that limit. Sltould Merge Departments "We need these many departments joined into one large department with the governor at the head. He should get eight or ten men who will take charge of the various departments under him and be responsible to him for expendi tures. "I believe that the women are going to see that they get value received from their taxes, just the same as they de mand that they shall get value received for the money they put into houseliold affairs. I believe that women are on the whole more economical than men in the handling of affairs." Mr. Barber called attention to the fact that each legislature is made up of men of whom 7. per cent have had no legis lative experience and no knowledge of the work to be done. They go to Montpelier with good intentions and they cannot be corrupted, but they find themselves at once the center of appeals from numerous boards and commissions, which have been created by former legislatures, for money to carry on different kinds of work. Expense is the Result There are in Vermont today 07 or more departments or commissions which arc dependent upon the state for sup port. Expenses for administration of the foregoing have increased until in 1020, $232.0MI was expended. Each legisla ture has added one or more of these' de partments. Many of these boards and commissions are good in themselves, but the trouble is that appropriations for them are made and they arc left to spend the money without any check on them for the next two years. The budget committee, he said, which was brought into being in lOlo. did not prove very successful, and the board of control, of five members with the gov ernor at the head, organized in 1017 for the purpose of checking up the various departments, is not serving the purpose which many supposed that it would. No Check on Expenditures j Mr. Barber went on to say that the state has enough unpledged revenue, in cluding the money from the fish and game licenses and other receipts from the pub liV which amounts to .1.2."0.000, which is exiM'iuled by the boards and commis sions, which take it in, without any check. He also stated that there are many departments which show a profit, adding that it is not necessary that this profit should remain in these depart ments. It might be distributed among other departments which have not suffi cient revenue to keep them going. He de clared that all extra revenue should be turned over to the state treasury and ex pended by. the board of control where it is most needed: also, that some of the Ixiards and commissions and departments might well be consolidated to save ex pense. Tells of Women Prisoners "Prisons find Women" was Hip sub ject of Miss Lena C. Boss, sujierintendent of the women's reformatory in Rutland. She called attention to the fact that the appropriation of $7,000 to repair and re furnish the reformatory hail proved Z'STXTLTIii. lijT TIT Is scarcely sufficient, and she related how the inmates had constructed a large part of their own furniture. She told also of their doinj; outside laundry work which brought in corj iderable ,moiwy and which helped out the appropriation made for the maintenance of the insti tution. Inmates of Institutions Wiliam II. Jeffrey, secretary of the Vermont Board of Charities, gave the lat est figures on people who are now con fined in state institutions. On Sept. 1 there were at the state prison and house of correction at Windsor 2T.". Of these, 40 were outside of the prison, 41 on state road work and eight at the state farm. With these 40 living outside of the prison the institution is so crowded that three inmates are sleeping in the corridors, which gives an indication of what the condition will be at Windsor when those outside come back to the institution. On the same date there were 30 wunen in state prison for women at Rutland and the department known as the house of correction for women. In addition to these on the above date there were 70 persons being held in various county jails, making the total prison population of Vermont 304. At the state industrial school there were 24S pupils. 1(50 boys and SS girls. Mr.Jeffrey said in this connection that he had visited many like institutions in other states and had not found a better or more ably conducted one than that at Vergennes. On Sept. 1 there were also 702 parol ers anil probationers under the supervi sion of the Board of Charities and Pro bation. The concluding address was by Ed mund C. Mower, professor of government and law in the University of Vermont. He siwike on the administration of jus t ice.
