A WELCOME FOR THE ALIEN. i I Former Commissioner of Immigration WalHs is lifting his voice for better con , d'tior.s at Ellis Island, where the inuni . jsrrr-nt gets his first experience of Amer j k-a. He feels that Americanization work ! sr.-uM start at that point. "You can irnke an anarchist over night' at" Ef lis T 1-n.l." says Mr. Wallis. This is not the first time it has been S suggested that the situation at Ellis j Island needed improvement. It is a pity i the suggestion needs repetition. It would " a very difficult matter to makp con j itions ideal, but much could be done to I letter tliem. The trouble arises not be- cause of the indifference of those hand j l;ng the immigrants when they come in, i but because the subject as a whole never I ' as been provided for on the big scale j "iiieh its needs demand. S First impressions sink deep nnd often n- lasting. After handpicking and sift :i2T i'jinngrants at the foreign iorts, the r.evf l)est stej toward assimilation and Americanization -undoubtedly would be we'eome at the gates- dt America which :': 'disposed the alien to believe in and . A. il. t 1 A. . I 1 t 1 ' "ie new ijinu to wmcn ne nas LOFD VOICES. A" . h"nd .talking in the halls'' is the ; -,-nt out by the heads of a biff bich school. "A similar order probably has been issued in every school in the country. What a blessing it would be if the movement could be broadened to encourage low-pitched voices among chil dren in their general conversation in school and out. It is neither necessary nor desirable that the shouts of playing children should be repressed sternly, but on the other hand there is every reason why the child should be trained in voice pitch and the pleasant modulation - of his speech. An agreeable speaking voice is not only restful to the ear. It is also a dis tinct business and social asset for the speaker. It is a fact too often over looked in the child's early training. The shrill American voice is notorious. If the effort to suppress young voices in school halls were elaborated just a lit tle, the timbre of the national voice could be changed in a generation. Legislation to provide a square deal for the illegitimate child will be pushed when congress convenes again. Under the froposed law the obligation for the education and support of . such children will be placed upon both parents. The tendency now prevailing to throw the burden upon the public and the mother and let. the father go free will receive a needed check. If the law goes through, the government will stand back of. the mother an J child to insure that the father acknowledges and fulfills his re sponsibility for the support and educa tion of the child during its years of de pendency. Failure to pay money for that purpose in sums fixed , by the court will be considered a criminal offense, and punished as such. This is activity in the right direction. It sets no premium upon illicit love. It offers the innocentvchild a chance to which he is entitled. By the fact that it throws responsibility . ; ; ; ; j ' . , V ' ' ' - ' ; ' . .:, i T ' ' wt wk $ml III m where it belongs it may tend to lessen the number of cases of the sort. "Restore to towns administration of local affairs" in the state Republican platform might mean a return to town health officers and the abolition of the present force of district health officers drawing full time pay from the state treasury. It is certain little relief from a state tax can be expected if the state continues to pay for the administration of local affairs." Governor Miller of New York is work ing on a prison wage plan which will allow prisoners to earn money for the support of their dependents and train them in some industrial work that they may enter when discharged from prison. The plan may develop into a good sub stitute for the probation system. Thomas E.- Wilson, president of the Institute of American Meat Packers, r-nvs the meat packing business ha re turned to normalcy and the industry is in the best position it has been for years. Prosperity in . the meat business does 'lnd quite normal. We caught the lines in the Boston Transcript "that the game of beaver as ii is played in England is both Miotic and cruel." Our first thought .-.s it was referring to the attempt to re-establish beaver in Vermont. The poisonous snake must go. Bra zilian scientists declare that its bite is u longer a permit for a tpjart of whis key. ' ! Bates's Resignation. ! (Rutland Herald.) Mr. Bates tendered his resignatiou saying f hat he was unable to co-operate further with the board, the breaking point coming over the matter of a minor ity report of the commission which Mr. Bates refused to write. Governor Hartness and Dr. W. N. Bryant, the other members, felt, it is said, that this was somewhat irregular, but requested Mr. Bates to go ahead with his, minority report and submit it to the board for consideration. Mr. Bates re signed rather than submit his report to his colleagues, it is understood. , It is said that Mr. Bates has never entered whole-heartedly into the work of the board. A point of difference was the use of engineers in laying out federal aid projects. Governor Hartness nnd Doctor Bryant felt that it was better to use the engineering force in laying out these projects so that as soon as they were approved work might be begun at once. Mr. Bates argued that the en gineers should not be used until the money was in hand. The board felt that the people were entitled to the roads as soon as the money was available and not be madeto wait for months with the money being idle in the bank, an the Bates plan required. Differences were constantly developing on the board, it is understood, and came to a climax with Mr. Bates's decision not to submit his minority report to bis colleague News Story in Burlington Free Press. Stoddard B Bates's retirement from the state highway commission, it is reported, was the outcome in part of differences between himself and the other two mem bers of the commission. Governor Hart ness and Dr. W. N. Bryant, as to the matter of policy regarding the use of engineers in " federal bjhway surveys. This is one. of the few public intimations that things have not been running alto gether smoothly in the business of. the highway commission for some time, "due in a measure to the friction between Gov ernor Hartness and Mr. Bates on the latters retirement from control of the state highway department. Mr. Bates's resignation from the commission at this time does not mean that he will depart from public life inasmuch as he is a candidate for senator from . Orleans county and is certain of taking his seat in the senate, barring unforeseen circum stances. As a practical road builder, his ndviCe is worthy of consideration as he has built some of the best highways in the state; he may or may not be as strong in administrative work Barre Times. . Comparing the news story from the Free Press with the actl record of the meeting to which the story refers, shows that some one took particular pains to put Mr. Hates "in wrong." whereas the facts are that his suggestion for filing a minority report was "turned down" peremptorily by Governor Hart ness and only partially reversed later when the governor was remonstrated with by his" associates. Then he con sented to a minority rfjwrt if Bates would submit it for the approval of the majority of the board! , There is nothing irregular about a piingrity report, and Dr. Bryant, an ex perienced legislator, knew it, but Jie was not given an opportunity to make his point, as the 'record shows that, the gov ernor arbitrarily refused to consider the Bates proposition nnd the meeting im mediately adjourned. Afterward, undoubtedly both Dr. Bry ant and Commissioner Dix represented to the chairman (Governor Hartness) that it would not do; hence the Dix let ter next day. If Mr. Bates had been willing to abide by the somewhat re markable conditions imposed he might have had his reiort received and perhaps i-dited by "his associates, but evidently he did not propose to have a minority re iwirt edited by the majority, so he de clined and resigned. The break between Bates and the iMinrd was probably inevitable, as Gover nor Hartness has never forgiven the legis l.iture for so framing the law that he was virtually compelled to appoint Bates on the board, and the presence of the former highway commissioner thereon h:is always been irritating to the gover nor. The Bates report, however, should be written, and if the highway commission does not care to include it as addenda, then no 'doubt -the legislature might print it by resolution for distribution to its membership. In the Green Mountain State. (Boston Transcript, (Vet. 4.) Vermont has found that organized ef fort to make the attractions of the state for the seeker for health and recreation brings return in gratifying measure.' With its lakes and hills. its bracing climate and its accessibility, especially to travelers from the West and South, Vermoni takes rank among the foremost of the pleasureygrounds of the country. Vermont folkTin common with those of other New England states, are alive to the imjxrtance of systematic effort to make known its attractions and to supply information of assistance to its visitors. This year the hotel men, through their state organization, have been the moving force behind an energetic publicity cam paign. It has included the maintenance of a publicity bureau in New York in addition to the dissemination of informa tion through an efficient organization within the state. It has been the means And He Did! AND HE,DID fMw ED 'jffiffifljj TEETH ! . -fll Copyright, 1921, George Matthew Adams of bringing to Vermont large numbers of visitors in addition to those who had al- i ready discovered the charm of the Green . Mountain state. I What the Vermont hotel men have ac complished will be reported at their state convention in Manchester, this week. They have done good service- not only to those directly engaged in caring for the summer visitors, but it is to be re membered that the great army of tourists stimulates business in nwiny lines. The vacation resort business is an asset of great value to the New England states. Such effort as that which has been made in Vermont to foster it and the efforts which are similarly being made in other states are of general interest. And , it apiwars that these Vermont men are not looking solely to the so-called "summer business." They are alive to the oppor tunities that are ffereil Vermont by the growing fondness shown by large num bers of people for vacation days spent among the hills in the exhilarating at mosphere of a New England winter. The Vermont hotel men who have taken the lead in the present endeavor to further the resort business should be given cordial and active co-operation by other interests. Chambers of commerce and boards of trade may well enlist in the movement. It is of general value to the state and should receive general and generous support. ' LONGER SKIRTS. HIGHER BOOTS. Trade Paper Declares Women Demand Them High Priced Lines Coming. Longer skirts Kr women arc an estab lished tact. They may be seen in increas ing numbers on the fashionable streets of every city. They have displaced short skirts for morning, afternoon and evening wear. This question is not debatable. The commercial interests which imagine they will be adversely affected by this radical change in women's gowns are still harping on the old string that the women of America will not accept the edict of Paris, but their arguments arc disproved by their own women folks a home. The hosiery ' manufacturers and th trade papers which contain hosiery "ad vertising are doing all they can to stem the tide. They fear that long skirts will sound the knell of silk hosiery. They ore mistaken. Women have been wear ing silk underwear for years, and having acquired the silk stocking habit will not depart- from, it except as they may be driven by poverty. Furthermore there will not be a return to the feet clutterint impedimenta of former days. The new towns, as far as ankles are concerned, ure of the half concealing, half revealing tyie. They will call for hose and boots which will entrance by flashes of ex posure rather than the frank but less ef fective display of the knee-length skirts. High cut boots for women are coining back also, but nob in force immediately. They will be featured first in the high priced lines. Boots are not returning to favor because of longer skirt lengths as much as for th reason that low cut shoes have already outlived their ex pectancy of life. Fashionable women are demanding a change and the industries involved have not to reason why, but to obey orders and go ahead. 'The fashion designers of Paris are evolving boot designs, but not. following the old ideas of plain, heavy footgear suitable for wading through snowdrift. The coming boots will reflect the artistry of Paris, and will be things of beatuy, if perhaps too frail to be joys forever. In despite of anything the hosiery peo ple and the papers interested in hosiery can do, the modish, attractive boot for women is coming. The advance guard is here and the cohorts will arrive in a later season. Shoe and -Leather Re porter. j The Green Hill Stat .
