It is interesting but not surprising that the American Legion proiioses to sponsor a hill calling for the general ''inscription of capital and labor in easel f another war. The events of the last ! few years have led straight to such a conclusion. There is no doubt that the last war bred great inequalities in many direc tions, and if all the man ixnver of the nation were summoned to serve on an equal footins in another conflict some of these injustices could surelv be ure- vented. Yet arranging for such con scription would be. easier said than done. Even with the earnest intent to put all men on an equal basis, there still would be room for bitterness and complaint, for dishonesty, injustice, loss and gain, for that is human life. I'erhaps some really fair system of war service can be worked out. if we must -have more wars. The thing is, in tliis leveling process, not to destroy that tin spirit !f patriotism and loyalty which, through all the ages. has led brave men to spring to the defense of their country without thought of per sonal gain or loss and which has wlways marked the patriot from the mercenary COMMON I.AROR. Accoiding to an autlxifity on ceo noinics, if the shortage in common labor continues to develop t lie time is not far oil when native Americans may have to return to ditch-digging and the other manual tasks usually left to the unskilled immigrant. 1 roiiahly before this comes to pass either a lifting of the immigration ban or-, the development of machinery will save the day. but it would not be such a bad thing for some of our brain workers. gilded youthV and 'd' females if they did have to work with their hands and deveiop their back muscles for a change. Many a successful professional man or business executive facing a "nervous breakdown" would restored to full vigor by a comprehensive session with pik and shovel. Many a wild boy, the problem of his parents, could be made a tolerable member of society by a lit tle back-breaking, humble toil. There would not be half so women and exotic- girb many neurotic!" dissipating time. monev and morals if the dentand of the day were physical lahor. It may seem superfluous to sound a warning about the hunting season, but casualties already are being reported so freely that the annual remarks mar be ij order. Of all the accidents which could be prevented, the hunting accident is the most uncalled for. There is the man who takes his neighbor for a rab- bit. There is the greenhorn who thinks the guide was' a deer. -There is the sea soned ibl hard-shell who drags his gun after him through the fence, muzzle first. There is the dub who doesn't know it is loaded, ami the one who is sure , the safety catch is on. and the promt guy who carries a loaded gun over his shoul der through the thicket with other men behind him. There is the fool who rests his gun on the bottom of the bumping IJ.zie or the rocking duck boat, muzzle toward him. and all the rest of the nuts who. if they had used the care about their guns that they do about filling their pipes; would have hurt neither themselves nor others. The. warning is for these. The other boys don't need it. liiiili K- ? 1 III I f I u.s. i ' ' Jr ''''''' ' " " " "" ! V ' , .

There have been so many shootings and killings in Vermont lately in which the manipulators of weapons were held to have been only careless that it seems high time to correct the practice by sen tencing one or two of these '"careless" persons to a fairly long term behind the bars. When a man shoots off a revolver several times just outside of a house, then enters the house and flourishes the revolver about until an occupant of the house gets a bullet, his actions should be considered as something besides careless. The state's attorney of Addison county promises action in the case, but to await the outcome of the which, of course, is reasonable. prefers injury. Didn't Work This Time. (Montpelter Argus.) The State Farm Rureau gets after Congressman tJrccne. perhaps, because it had such -good success a little while ago in causing-one member of the Vermont delegation in congress to reverse his posi tion by merely sending him twenty-seven telegrams from various parts of the state. The present controversy is simply strengthening Mr. Greene in the estima tion of Vermont voters, fanners and ethers. Speakerslu'p Talk. (Rutland Herald.) The Rradford Opinion picks Orlando L. Martin of Plainfield us a likely winner in I be speakership fight if there is a fight. The contemporary also refers to the candidacy of Frank D. Thompson of Ra rton and Mason S. Stone of Mont pclier, while the fact is that Thompson never was a candidate and has expressly said so., and Stone has certainly not an nounced himself; 011 the contrary, he has indicated that lie would not enter the contest. The Opinion's opinion, there fore, might very well be subject to re-1 vision. I 'Don't Be Afraid, Son!" Today's Events All-Hallow E'en. Admission day in, Nevada.

The Rellows Falls Times has been scolding the 'high school student body for lack of school spirit in supporting and providing candidates for the foot ball team. Lefusal to obey training rules is the chief complaint, and it is serious. IxKause boys who "go out" for the team and then fail to observe train ing rules are a more demoralizing int'u ence in school than those who merely drift along without anything in piriie ular to fall away from. If athletics are to be any good in school they must stand for clean living, good hours, self sacri lice, courage and physical condition. It would be idle to deny that there is a tendency to over-emphasize athletics in high schools, and one disadvantage of football is that it applies at the most' to a very small number of students, tin others lieing merely supporters and ad mwers of the team. When even those on the training squad fail to show enough 'oyalty and manhood to live un to train ing rules, then the influence of the team as an element of morale and a standard if clean, robust habits falls to nothine One solution of the problem 4is to have more teams, and more games, along the order of English football, which require by .school custom, that everv bov in public school must appear on the field and take part in class ganies house games, or school games, thereby dis tributing the benefit of the training over the whole school. Meanwhile, it seems fairly clear that unless students are willing, for the honor ind glory of the M-honl, to make the nec 'ssary sacrifices, then certainly they are not entitled to a team and the matter houId be made very clear to them what poor-spirited stuff they are. . Reciprocal Highway Courtfsy. (St. Johnsbury Caledonian.) The j courtesy campaign being con ducted by the American Automobile as sociation in connection with the Chicago Automobile Trade association and the National Automobile Dealers' associa tion in co-operation with- local motor ve hicles throughout the entire country will soon be displaying green and white stick ers on windshields bearing the words "Automobile Courtesy" in large letters, over the name of the locol motor club. The reciprocal practice of highway courtesy will greatly increase the safety as well as the pleasure of the highway travel. . Commenting on the courtesy campaign and its objects, D. II. Lewis of the American Automobile Association, re cently said: "We believe that ."0 per cent of the automobile accidents which happen oil the highways of the United States could be avoided through the use of a little-automobile courtesy. Courtesy costs nothing and brings greater results than any other element entering in the driving of are automobile. Real automo bile courtesy demands that we give the other fellow his share of the road; that wo dim our lights when meeting another car at night, that we recognize the faet that the man behind us blowing for the road wants to get by and is not cballeng- m MELANCHOLY. I'm full of weariness tonight. 'in vain I strive to shed a grin; the moon., that once was shining bright, looks like a planet made of tin. I have two boils upon my neck, and two more threaten to arrive, and so I sadly cry, "By heck." and wonder why I am alive.' I hearjhe laughter of the young, a sound I loved in days of yore, but now it keeps my nerves unstrung, and makes my head exceeding sore. I njal the works of Sunny. Jim, that used to soothe my savage breast, but now I'd rend him limb from limb, and throw the fragments east and west. My aunts tunc. up their lyres and lutes, for music once possessed its joy, but now I don my hat and boot, and leave the Louse to dodge the noise. The night wind has a wailing sound, it sighs and whimpers by my shack ; my poultice weighs a half a pound, and keeps on sliding down my back. It is in vain my brow to deck with wreaths of laurel, fairly won; for I've two boils upon my neck, and wreaths aren't worth ten cents a ton. - Copyright by George ing us to a race: in short, it means being agreeable in all these little things that go so far toward avoiding friction. This campaign, to be of greatest use. must include all users of the highway, including cyclists and pedestrians. Often pedestrians swarm and sprawl all over the road in utter contempt) of the rights of other highway users. There is no need for reforms in the practices to which Mr. Lewis calls atten tion, especially in pulling over to let the man behind get by when he signals Ins desire to do so. Many motorists seem to regard this as a reflection on their car. if not a iersonal insult, and either start to race or refuse to give way by so much as an inch. This offense is particularly common in the parts of the country peo- ded almost exclusive by a very puiv strain of old American stock, where the people are drunk on freedom and where every man consideres himself an un crowned king. It is our opinion that an owusioiinl "Vrownhie." say with a pick handle, would greatly improve tins class of royalty. Rut as that isn t being done. now. a courtesy campaign .-rem m shortest: road to reformation.
