(TOM KJSSi NATIONAL GUARD GROWS RAPIDLY General Carter Predicts - 160,000 Before End of Fiscal Year SEES DEFICIENCY! IN APPROPRIATION Available Funds Provide for 122,()00 Men Bureau 3Iay Not Be Able to Kecog nize Additional Units Growing In New England. AYASIIIXGTON", Dec. 14 Rapid pro gress in the rebuilding of the nation 's second line of defense the National Guard was made during the last fiscal year, says the annual report today of the chief of the militia bureau, under signature of Brigadier General Jesse Mcl. Carter, retired. On last June 30, the report says, the guard numbered 113,- 630 with 331 organizations allotted, but not yet organized. On, the basis of expansion during last year, General Carter estimated that be fore the end of the current fiscal year the guard would number 160,000 men, or some 10.000 more than in the regular army. Pointing out that available tunds for this year provide for only 122,000 men, the report says that unless in creased appropriations are allowed "tliue will be trouble ahead" for the militia bureau, Ais existing law prescribes the pay of the guardsmen, Gcneral Carter says there appears to be no way to avoid cre ation of a deficiency except by refusing to recognize additional imits duly or ganized under provisions of the law. "Such action." he add-, "will surely cause bitter feelings and charges of bad faith: it will crush the present rising tide in the organization of our second line of defense." Appended to the report are statements from armv corps area officers as to pro gress in organizing guard units in the various corps. Col. L. C. Sherer, at Bos ton, says the "prospects are bright for additional units to be presented rap idly" in the first corps area, compris ing the New England states. THAT REMINDS ME HINSDALE. N. II.

R. R. LABOR BOARD CUTS OVERTIME WAGE Extra Tay After 10 Hours Instead of Kight Straight Time for Sunday Labor. CHICAGO, Pee. 14 Slashing t-xtr:i day provisions for the first two hours of overtime after the regular eight-hour day's work from rules governing railway; maintenance of way employes, the United. States railroad labor board has et up aj sclHHluto. ol Hi Hours a uay hi me reguiur hourly wage for common lalxirers in new rules announced last night to replace the national agreement made under govern ment control. The principle of "eight consecutive hours shall constitute a day's work" is retained, however, and time and one-half pay is granted after 10 hours' work. The new provisions make possible a 10-hour day without penalizing the rail roads, which were eomivelled under the federal agreement to pay time and one half after eight hours. l'ractically all section gangs work more than eight hours a day due to time necessary for traveling to and from the point of operations and. Decause or i ne seasonal nature oi ine work making long hours necessary to take advantage of good weather. The rules become effective lee. K. Iteiuoval of the two hours' overtime penalty was declared by labor board atr taches to cut many" millions of dollars from the carriers" annual pay rolls. Nor mally the new rules would affin-t rs..tKM . hut at present the force is considerably less, due to subnormal traffic conditions and also to the seasonal nature of the work. The old national agreement recognized the 10-hour day in extra or floating gangs of workmen whose employment is tenu porary and seasonal, ltegular gangs, however, were p.kid overtim after f"ight luMirsfwciiusiftK ,4oii h crititism'. -sixfeiall. from agricultural sections" where farmers declared the long hours on the farm were no inducement compared to shorter hours I'nder the new rules numerous changes are made. The number of hours of work per day may l reduced by mutual agree ment to avoid reducing forces. The roads were formerly compelled to pay eight hours wages a day fur each man employed, liegular assignment of Sunday and holi day work no longer draws time and a half pay. When called for less than a day's work, however, employes will be paid three hburs straight time for two hours' work or less, instead of time'and a half for the two hours and pro rata time there after, l'xtra time worked before the regular day begins will draw time and one-half as before, but the schedule of hours being subject to local agreemeut, such extra pay might be eliminated by fixing an earlier beginning time.

' U ARTHUR GOOpKNOUOlI -..nssi- iJimiu-iKHH- It Pays a Slate to Advertise. (New York Herald.) The (Ireen Mountain state, always very wideawake, has of late leen particu larly active in extending information alNMit Vermont by the liberal use of printer ink. There are state organiza tions working to that end and there is a state magazine, the Vermonter, an at tractive imLlualion fdled -with interwting illustrations and well written test. It is devoted exclusively to revealing in detail the industrial and agricultural resources of the state and to presenting Vermont's strikingly beautiful scenic attractions for th? siimmor visiter. Statements calculated to give erron eous impressions concerning Vermont farming returns and farm living condi tions, for instance, have been met not with recriminations but the presentation of statistics and facts quite unanswer able. In regard to climatic conditions the same method of rebuttal has been pur sued. For some reason not apparent Ver mont seems to have been selected as a favorite target for misrepresentations with respect to the severity of its winters. It has been repeated until it became al most an article of faith with the unin formed that the state is snow-buried in winter, with highways blocked, schools closed, supplies all but unobtainable in the rural regions and farmhouses snowed in. To all this the Vermonter replies with the statement that the people up there capitalize ' snow when they can get it. The young folks have lots of fun with it. but it is not always to lie had. Iast year Vermonters had to haul snow from shel tered ravines to provide for toboggan and feki slides, while the largest city in the state had to import ice from Montreal. As to Vermont's isolation, it is 'pointed out that farmers of the (Jrecn Mountain state are only eight hours from New York and six hours from Iloston, to which they send large quantites of milk every! day in the ear, winter and summer. Strangely enough, no small part of the advertising campaign has had. to be di rected to dispelling utterly unfounded no tions about Vermont winters which for some reason have got abroad. As a mat-, ter of fact, Vermont winters are just the hearty. bracing. health-giving cold weather winters that prevail generally in those parts of New England which are away from the ocean influences affecting the coastal regions. They are an invig orating tonic. ermont's advertising campaign will lienetit all New England, not the Green! Mountain state alone. Mistakes like1 those about Vermont are more or less prevalent alwiut agricultural and climatic conditions in all the New England states.' The advertising work Vermont is doing is accomplishing much in the way of dis pelling these erroneous beliefs. That Ver mont's efforts have been notably success ful may be attributed, in part at least, to the fact that there are Vermonters scat tered all over the union. They are im bued wjth state affection and lovaltv. Wherever there is a Vermonter there the state advertising organizations have a zealous and generally a very influential agent.
