The survey of gainfully employed

The Rusiness Women's club set Hie ball
rolling for a survey of employed women
of the town and from that start a stupen
dous task has been undertaken, which it is
hoped will result in direct benefit feat
ures for employed women.
Information obtained through the sur
vey and the rilling of individual schedules
will supply a foundation for additional
studies needed in order to plan intelli
gently for a benefit project which may
be worked out later. Such schedules also
may be useful if th1 club develops plans
for assisting unemployed members. It is
hoped also that ultimately a card catalog
of members, showing the business expe
riences and other data, may be prepared.
Such a -omplefe registration of services
which may be obtained from local women
would be of great value both to the club

McConnell. who are working under Dr.
Eaves as d ins-tor of the survey, have been

When these figures are combined in sta

After selections by the club chorus tlx

address began with the history of tlie
outdoor theatre in Greece in the early
ages, showing lectures of ruin of - old
theatres which have been brought to
light by excavations, ami traced the
theatre from those beginnings up to the
present time, when the outdoor theatre
again is coming into its own. The slides
not only reproduced the. fruit of excava
tions, but showed the progress of the en
closed theatres and many of the new
outdoor theatres in California and other
Sections of this country. His pictures
also showed the simplicity of the casts of
the plays of earlier ages as compared to
those of the present time. The- three
kinds of outdoor theatres, those of classi
cal or Greek achitecture. the natural
theatre and the garden theatre.
In th course of his lecture. Dr. Smir
now stiileil that research tiad revealed
that every kind of play was presented in
the earlier ages, from the Shaksperean
classics to the ballet dances, but that
in all the earlier pYoriuetions the co
operation of the audience was essential
to a marked degree because of the fact
that there was no change of scenery, this
necessarily meaning that imagination
must be vivid.
MUST NOT SMOKE
Rule. Adopted by High School Athletic
Advisory Council Baseball and
At a meeting of the Hrattlcboro high
school Athletic Advisory Council
last evening plans for the baseball
and tennis seasons were discussed, the
need of new baseball equipment was in
vestigated, ind several new athletic rul
ings were proposed and adopted. Twelve
members of the council were present.
Howard' Page outlined plans for the
Imseball ami tennis seasons, and the coun
cil voted to ask Fred II. Harris to coach
the Hrattlcboro high school tennis team
this year. A committee consisting of four
members of toe council was appointed to
investigate the needs of the high school
baseball team regarding new equipment
and to rcHrt on the question at the nest
meeting of the council.
A member of the council suggested that
a new. clause be proposed for addition to
the Vermont Headmasters' athletics rules
providing that no pupil could participate
in any form of athletics who entered a
high school after he had completed one or
more years in any other high school. This
would tend to prevent a pupil from chang
ing schools simply for the sake of better
ing his tosition in regard to athletics.
A new rule that t he ma lingers of nil the
athletic teams of the Hrattlcboro high
school shall not smoke during the train
ing, season of their team also was pro
posed and adopted.

and Ernest Leno v having ' been placed in
jail Feb. IS in default of bail of Sl.OOO
for trial in county court on the charge
of criminal assault on Delia Cobb, lo,
of Warrisboro Feb. S.
State's Attorney Ilarolri E. Whitney,
who preferred the charges, appeared for
the .state yesterday afternoon at .-.the
hearing, which was to determine wheth
er Gardner Leno should be held for trial
ut the April term of county court. Judg?
F". D. E. Stowe assigned Attorney Chase
to defend Leno. and he asked Attorney
E. Gibson, w ho was counsel for Ern
est Leno iuiho Cobb case, to assist him.
The question arose as to whether Attor
ney Gibson was counsel for Gardner
Leno, the court stating that if he was
the assignment of Attorney Chase at
the expense of the state would be . re
scinded. Attorney Gibsyn said he was
a member of a committee of American
Legion men to see that the rights of
former service men charged with crimes t
were .profit ted. but was not retained by'
anybody as counsel for Gardner Len'
further than that Attorney Chase had
asked him to assist.
The state chaigeri that on Nov. 17,
1?' I . Gardner Leno placed Miss Moul
ton in Jack Howards keeping for im
moral purposes. The defense put in! in
evidence aiid claimed that the evidence of
the prosecution did not indicate immor
ality under the statute, there being no
Vermont statute against the conduct
which the stale's evidence showed.
State's Attorney Whitney contended
that the evidence plainly showed
a violation of the law and he asked
that the respondent be Irclri for county
court under IhmhIs of Sl.tMMi. Judge
Stewe stated that the case involved an,
interpretation of the statute, and ho
continued the case until Friday morn
ing. Both brothers were taken to tho
Hrattlcboro lockup. This morning Judge
Stowe notified the counsel that he had
reached a riis-ision, so the respondent
was taken into court and Judge Stowe
said he had decided to hold Leno for
trial in county court. He fixed bail at
S."i(M, which Leno could not furnish and
so was taken back to the lockup.
Freeman E. Laxelle of Warrisboro,
guardian of Mi.-s Moulton. was the first
w itness, but was 'asked Viily a few ques
tions.. He said the girl worked for Dr.
O. V. Hellion of Warrisboro at the time
of the alleged offense. She knew Leno
but had rejected him. the witness said.
The girl testified that sho had known
Leno several years. She said one night
in November he put a ladder up against
Dr. Ileliion's house, climbed through her
bedroom window and threatened to
shoot her if she did not go with him.
She said she was afraid as he had a re
volver in his pocket. He remained until
she dressed and then took her to Jack
Howard's, where there was a woman
whom Howard said was his wife. She
stayed there two weeks. Leno coming
flo-re every night. Then he took her
to Wilmington to the home of his sis
ter. Mrs. P.oyri- where she stayed a
week. Mr. Lazolle came after her after
Mrs. Hoyri hail written him that she
