THE BRATTLEHORO DAILY REFORJIER, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER J, 1922.
poriing GREAT REVERSAL OF FORM SHOWN Brattleboro High Hands Amherst High 31-to-7 Defeat Here MANUAL OF THE UNITED STATES FINE SHOWING BY DEYO, NEW MAN Locals Have Easy Time Put (in.; Away Massachusetts Team Visitors' .Negro Trio Shows I'p Poorly and Have to Leave Lineup. The Iirattlehoro Liy;li school football team defeated the Amherst high" school team yesterday afternoon at Pratt field by a score of 31 to 7. The locals played in the best form they have shown' this 3 ear, and the same was marked by lonji end runs and smashing line plays, ifoth teams played straight football and there were few fumbles and fewer penalties. Cant.- Mauley, Mitiguy and L. lley wood did the scoring for the locals, but Ifyo. playing his first" same for 15. II. S.. was the real star. lie distinguished himself especially on three occasions by intercepting a forward pass, recovering a fumble, and preventing an Amherst score in the last quarter by tackling an Am herst back, after a long run to lirattle boro's 15-yard-line. His defensive work showed up well and bis only weakness neemed to be in getting down the field after a kick. Mauley and L. I ley wood made several thrilling" end runs for good gains and ZUitiguy did good work in his plunges off t;iklc. Many times, if the local in terference became faulty, these players used their heads and got through the Amherst defense without any help. The line played steadily, the visitors making few yards Ihrough Ilobb or McGarrijrlc. Horsey, Flcury and Flebut starred for Amherst. The visitors' hopes that their trio f Negro linesmen would bring them vii-tory did not materialize. Al1 of these colorful players were forced to leave the game before the end of the last quarter. Ilrattleboro kicked off to start the game and then recovered the ball after about a minute of play on downs. The locals worked the ball to the oal line and Mauley went over for the first touchdown "after about three minutes of play. I'.rattleboro kicked oiT again and 1'leury ran the ball back 50 3:1 rds before be - was downed. The visitors then showed the best fight that they did during the game. They carried the ball to the 10-yard line and then Flebut passed to lreoy in the end zone for Amherst's only touchdown. Flebut added llnextra point by a drop kick over the goal posts. Brattleboro's second and third touch downs came in the second period. Man ley crossed the line for the first one and a few minutes later Mitiguy received a pass from Mauley and crossed Ihe line after, a 20-yard run. The thrill of the game came in the third quarter. L. lleywood brought the ball to the visitors' five-yard line and Manley took it on the following play. Just as he was crossing the line he fumbled and the ball rolled into the end zone with loth teams after it. Mitiguy reached it first and added six points to 11. II. S.'s score by falling on it. Wells added the extra point by receiving a pass from Manley behind the goal line. L. lleywood showed all his former form by bringing the ball over for the final touchdown.

V. M. BRATTLEBORO PERSONAL ARE CONTRUCTING BIG WILSON DAM Government Resumes Operations Ex pects to Finish Power Project by Spring of 1920. FLORENCE, Ala., Nov. 4. The roar of construction work on the great Wil son dam at Muscle Shoals is again sounding through the valleys and over the hills along the Tennessee river. The federal government has stepped in to rescue from possible decay the spec tacular wartime nitrate and power pro jects, which sprang up almost overnight, involved iu the building of what wilt be the -world's largest waterpower dam. United States army engineers, who have just been furnished with 88,100, OOO, in congressional appropriations, are once more proceeding with the work of harnessing the mighty waters of the Tennessee under a government program which provides for the completion of the Wilson dam, the" installation of machin ery, and the furnishing of electrical "juice" by the late winter of 1923 or the early spring of 1026. This program is so definite that, the army appropriation bill to be introduced in congress Dec. 1 is to contain an item making available $7,500,000 additional for th" work for the fiscal year 1023-21. They will require but. .S7.400.OtN) more after that, for the following fiscal year, before they have a finished job at the dam and iwwer bouse, and be ready turn the switches that send out the elec trical current. - The men at work today are being paid at (he base rate of $2.50 per day, but. as this is a government payroll, and congress has granted a lxnus to govern ment workers, they actually receive 1 about 83.20 per man per day average. j This means an expenditure of about I S4.00 per day for labor. But cement. lumber, coal, ' re-iuforcing steel, and other materials are being purchased, eat ing into the appropriations. W. V. Hollister of Bennington Prepar ing to Write Sliort Stories.

E B arber? 55 TO THE VOTERS OF BRATTLEBORO :- The record of Frank E. Barber, Republican Nominee for Town Repre sentative, having been questioned by his opponents, I beg leave to call to your attention editorial comment appearing in two of the leading daily, papers of the State. . - " On January 25, 1922, following a speech which Mr. Barber made in Bur lington, Vermont, the Free Press in an editorial on "How to Cut State Ex penses" closed their editorial as follows: ' "Representative Barber of Brattleboro has touched the root of the trouble, in our humble estimation. Too many commissions and burdens, no real executive budget and the passage of special appropriations for all sorts of things before the appropriations are made for necessary departments by the new legislature, seem to sum up much of the trouble. . - "We do not know whether Representative Barber, seeks a, re-election or not. It has occurred to us, however, that he is saying what most of the people would like to have said by the legislature, and that one way to help secure retrenchment in these directions would be to persuade Brattleboro to return Representative Barber on the platform outlined and elect him speaker of the next House on that platform." -c The Free Press in an editorial on "An Efficient Legislature" closed with the following praise for Mr. Barber: , "For these and other reasons, we are glad to note as a beginning in this direction that Representative Frank E. Barber of Brattleboro has announced his candidacy for r,e-election. We are moved to comment on this develop ment not only because Representative Barber sought to aid in the enactment of wholesome legislation in the legislature of 1921, but also because he had indicated the need of consolidating some of the half-hundred or more com missions and bureaus, and securing greater efficiency as well as economy. He has also advocated an executive budget bill to provide that no bill calling for an appropriation shall be considered until a budget bill providing for the expenses of the state government has been passed. If Representative Barber of Brattleboro and similar men from half a hundred other towns can be returned to the legislature next November, tax payers will have a different song to sing in 1923. The Rutland Herald, in speaking of Mr. Barber's candidacy for Town Representative, referred to him as follows: "Representative Frank E. Barber of Brattleboro is a candidate for re election on a platform of 'experience. This is a quality of great value to a man in almost every walk of life; and to a representative it is especially so. Mr. Barber was a valuable member of the legislatur of, 1921-22 and would justify his re-election if chosen again to represent Brattleboro." The Rutland Herald on February 1, 1922, in advocating economy in State Affairs refers to Mr. Barber as follows: "If we are going to pick out a Vermont Gospel team to tour the State in the interest of less state tax and more efficiency we would be inclined to select Representative Frank E. Barber of Brattleboro and Town Clerk Charles G. Braley. of St. Johnsbury." f The Herald of July 28. 1921, also said: .. , "It is also true that Chairman Frank E. Barber of Brattleboro and his associates on the committee on appropriations tried to head off some of the larger and more obvious raids." - S The above are the unsolicited and unprejudiced opinions of Mr. Barber's record by two of the leading newspapers of the state, who had its editors sitting at the press table in the House of Representatives during the entire legislative session .of '21, where they observed the daily work of Mr. Barber as well as other members of the legislature. v It is also known to the people of Brattleboro that his firm has had more to do with getting the Presbrey-Leland Quarries Company to locate their" granite cutting sheds in Brattleboro than any or all other parties in Brattle boro. It is needless to speak of their efforts in bringing other industries to, and aiding in the prosperity of Brattleboro. Personally I would like to know wfiether Dr. Lynch is running as a -Democrat candidate or not. I would also like to ask Dr. Lynch how he stands ' on the, temperance question. Now is the time when every Republican voter should feel it his dutv to L. E.
