About ir: basketball fans saw the fast "Windsor high school five walk away from the Brattleboro high school outfit by a t'.o-l."i score in Festival hall Saturday nisht. The Windsor boys dazzled the locals with their tloor work and basket sboi.ting early in the game, and the locals stayed in that semi-dazed condition throughout the 40 minutes of play. Not onlv were the Windsor boys much faster than the locals, but they also had a remarkable eye for the hoop. Heavey and tiilson showed up especially well in this department, neither missing more than one or two shots for the basket dur ing the game. In fact the Windsor boys were Hearer the town team class than they were the class o ordinary high school teams. Windsor ran up 12 points before An derson scored the first basket from the floor for the locals. Gilson. Ilice and L.-.mbard tallied in (puck succession for the rest of the period, and 'at the end of the,ba!f the locals were on the small end of a '.'2-tn-7 score.

Madame Alex andra Kollanty, one of the leaders of t he Kussian feminist movement, chnrges in an article she lias written in the I'ra vnda, that petty bourgeoisie narrowness land superstition are preventing women I having the voice thev merit in t Tie So viet ;overnmeiit. She says that no woman was a voting delegate at the Communist conference preceding the ninth All-Russian Soviet congress held here and that only 21 women included among the 2,000 voters at the congress, despite te fact that 50 per cent of Russian voters are women. She alleges that women are very act ive in pontics but less than three per cent of the membership of town Soviets is represented by women, and in the vi!hc;e Soviets fc'iev have only two tenths oi" one per cent of the membership. Furthermore, sh states there are only live women members in the central ex ecutive committee of 300' which is Rus sia's chief --'-erning body. Madame Kollant'- declares that such discrimination against women greatly retards the re-establishment of agricul ture in which peasant women play im portant parts. churned and skidded through the muck and in answer, to a sum- nens, marines from the barracks elear across the city came at double time, panting through the heavy going. At Fort Meyer, across the river, the cav alry was turned out and started in truckloads to the rescue, only to find roads blocked with snow. The men shov elled their way frantically, but finally four mule teams from the fort and from the engineer barracks were called on. BRATTLEBORO PERSONAL - 10S DEAD (Continued from raj e 1.) r.

The Pacific Coast league hav ing turned down the s7."0it draft proposition, the International league will most likely follow the example of the toast league in refusing the major's oli'er. After the recent Johnny Dundee Charlie White bout in Hoston many Hub boxing fans were of the opinion that ( hampion Penny Leonard would lind soft picking in either of the lighters. Jimmy Liggett, the Colored middle weight boxer of Philadelphia, who was a preliminary tighter during his career in America, is making ged in France and Italy according to reports from the t her side.

I Joes the refusal of Oenc Tunney to box Pat McCarthy mean that the new light heavy-weight champion intends to follow the example set bv other cf our champs in meeting only hand-picked opponents? ia hundred who got out uninjured have been reported. These account for a few more than ::00 in the audience that was laughing at a filmed comedy when the roof fell on them like a blanket, carry ing down the front of the wide balcony in its crash. Normally the theatre has had every seat filled "at that hour and nearly 2.000 persons was its capacity. The same un precedented snowfall which brought death to the venturesome few. kept the many at home. Street car traffic had been abandoned and streets and side walks were all but impassable witlf drifts. The ruins themselves disclose that the entire mass of steel-held concrete that iormed the roof had come down. The trash swept the supports out from un der the balcony, apparently, and this hinged down at an angle of 45 degrees, adding to the tangled mass of wreckage on the floor below. The building stands in an acute an gled corner at Eighteenth street and C-olumbia road. Northwest, the heart of the most favored residence section of the city. The narrow niche of the stage on which the screen was hung was bucked into the corner angle, while to the left from the stage the line of the auditorium wall runs in a straignt line for some 20O feet down Eighteenth stieet. To the right the wall follows the slow curve of (Vilumbia road for about the same distance and at the far end. paralleling the stage front, the back wall completes the auditorium proper, also about 200 feet in length. This whole space stood rootless to the sky a moment after the first crackling souml ot the hreaklng roof gave warning above the music of (he orchestra. There; is only one survivor thus far who has; told of having heard that warning and! boxer,! seen the first powdery handful of snow silt down over the head of the orchestral i i : . . . : i i - . .... t ii .tocr in iniic 10 mahc ins escape, r nnii cifs his s,.;t well forward on the main tloor, ' 1 j r - in i.'ii.i.ii ti. ill., o.'w.f ir tin. o.i.L- i great blast of air expelled as the roof came down hurled him out through the doorway to safety.

The beams that supported the back end of the balcony did not let go their clutch on the wall. The wide sweep of seats they supported tilted down until the wreckage below took the weight of the front end then stood covering the back rows of the main tloor like a tent. I he front rows of the- balcony were ground to a twisted mass of ruins in the fall. There was no wood in the strue tuie. It was all steel and concrete, but the enormous weight of the balcony was itself sutlieieiit to wind the torturet teams into fantastic shapes. Here again chant-e played a part in reducing the number of victims. The front rows of the balcony, four or five tiers deep, were known as "reserved'' seats. They . were prief'd above the suc ceeding rows and except when the house was jammed, commonly were not all oc cupied. With the small attendance of Saturday night, probably only a few bad paid the extra price for these seats, preferring to sit further back in the bal cony. Ami many of those behind scram bled up the steep slope of the fallen bal cony to safety, although many were f-truek down in the first blow when the roof came in. Some were hurled down into the pit wreckage when the balcony front fell and even some of th-se escaped with bruises. There is no record, how ever, of any survivor among those in the foremost balcony seats. Frantic calls for aid went out as soon as those in the di.nl.le walled structures which form the Eighteenth street and back wall of the auditorium realized vvhat had happened.

They go yellow because this re quisite has been denied them. The keyboard should not be covered, ex cept when the room is being swept.
