TUESDAY, OCT. 23, 11)21. THE SWISS SYSTEM President Harding has said, truly enough, that actual disarmament at this time is impossible that the most which can be hoped from the Washington con ference is an agreed limitation of arma ment. The thing which may be got rid of, however, with safety to every nation concerned, if the conferees go about it right, is militarism the spirit and method of competitive armaments. And the chief factor in eliminating militar ism, as President Emeritus Eliot of Har vard points out, is "the destruction of a professional military class." This is no mere dream, as President Eliot shows by referring to the Swiss mil itary system. He describes it as the one method in the world of . maintaining a sufficient armed force for domestic and defensive purposes while avoiding all dan ger of militarism. The Swiss army is purely a citizen army. It is absolutely democratic. Every citizen is obliged to undergo training. That training, however, is so short and intensive, and arranged to come at such seasonal periods, that it does not inter fere with the citizen's regular" life work. The result is that there is always a suf ficient force of trained soldiers ready on call for any emergency, while in the ab sence of emergency -there is ho drain on the nation's resources, no dislocation of industry and no military swagger. AN UNPOPULAR STRIKE If the railroad unions persist in going on strike, they will probably find that they have done the most unpopular thing in the history of American organized la bor. The men cannot expect loyal support even from organized labor in other indus tries. The latter know that the railroad employes are, as a class, the best paid workers in the world, that their working conditions compare favorably with those in most other industries, and that, every thing considered, they are lucky to have such good jobs. There must v be a good deal of irony, to the 4,000,00 men outjpf work' in the spectacle"of ttiose railroad men blithely preparing to quit work them selves and incidentally add to the unem ployment in every other line. It cannot be doubted that the railroad employes have grievances. It may be ad mitted, too, that railroad operators have provoked them unduly. Nevertheless the men should understand that prostrating American industry by a strike is not the way to settle their grievances, and that the public, which is the ultimate court of appeal, will not stand for a strike.

When nor mal pleasures we pursue, there's no remorse, there's naught to rue; we wake up smiling at the dawn, and put our bright green garments on, and think of what a gorgeous day we had before we Lit the hay. But if we seek abnormal fun, and with the brisk rollers run, and pour ted poison in the craw, ignoring Mr. Volsteads law, at dawn we leave cur tumbled beds, and tie wet cloths uponour heads, and view ourselves with deadly hate and envy these who traveled straight. A picnic partv i;i the glen, with lemonade and potted hen; a motor trip athwart the lea, or fcv the shin ing silver sea; some hours of fishing in the stream, returning with a strin-" of bream; a game of quoits behind the barn, relieved bv jest and sprightlv yarn ; these humble joys are better far than-tearing Volstcad's rules ajar Let normalcy our motto be when we would have a jamboree, and wv won-t figure in the news as tinhor.ii sports all steeied in booze, and we'll live Ion" v and have renown reflecting credit on the town.

Several of the towns j in the county have not reported any money pledged. .Marlboro was the first at the switch" is a paying proposition. Now that it has been determined who is the best speller in Vermont, the Rut land "Herald proposes that we have a ge ography contest, the questions to be de voted entirely to Vermont. It is a good idea. The ignorance of some Vermont cit izens, even those born and brought up within its boundaries, of the names and locations of Vermont towns and often of counties is surprising. A news item telling of the annual hunt at Weathersfield Center last week, says that the total catch was 141 red squir rels, 43 chipmunks, four crows and a partridge. With but one lone animal worthy the name of game, we should call it the annual massacre instead of hunt. As the Bennington Banner says, many are speaking of our unusual October wea ther. But if one can remember from year to year, or has kept a diary of weather conditions, he will probably find that it is just about as unusual as it usually is. One reads the reports of the antics of the squad of New York fat women who are trying to reduce their weight under the supervision. of Health Officer Cope land with intewst and also with consider able sympathy. Charlie Chaplin says the outstanding feature of his trip to England was that he found so many poor relatives over there. Perhaps that's why Charlie was so glad to get back to America. "The secret of health", writes a doc tor, "is the eating of onions." But it's no longer a secret after the onions have been eaten. "Once more the pie calendar opens at pumpkin," says the Boston Herald. And in another week we can turn it over to mince. Things are going from bad to "worse. Now they say the drouth has drieT up the mistletoe crop. V is government' going to give Thomas Usher what he has been paying for V We say yes. We say that if the vil lage of ISellows Falls cannot manage it, cannot preserve order so that workmen passing peaceably to and from their work, cannot be protected from violence, then it is the duty of the -county authorities to assist the established government of the village. If the county cannot keep or der, then the state should be called on, and if necessary a guard provided for every man or woman or boy or girl who wants to work and goes about it law fully and peaceably. Whatever be the issue between the In ternational Paper company and its men, there cannot be any question about the right of men to work if they want to work, and law and order must be main tained at whatever cost. Thomas Usher, speaking through his smashed teeth.and mangled lips, says he wants to go back to work. Is there strength enough in the government of Vermont to guarantee him that privilege? Our October "Weather. (Bennington Banner.) Up td the present time, Vermont, and presumably the eastern section of the continent, have been favored with excep tionally pleasant weather. The sun has been in evidence nearly every clay, the temperature has been mild and frosts have been few and light. Such expres sions as "finest October weather 1 can remember" and "there never was any thing like if have been common. The weather is one of the things of which people are forgetful from one year to another. A resident of Bennington who methodically and carefully keeps a diary made a record on October 21, 1020, of a temperature at !() degrees in the shade, "the warmest October. 21st in 4!) years," according to the report of the weather bureau at Washington. - has been aide the Seventh Ohio district.
