General Carter Predicts
- 160,000 Before End of
Available Funds Provide for 122,()00 Men

nize Additional Units Growing In
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
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.

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
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
