THE BHATTLEBORO. -DAILY REFORMER, SATURDAY,; NOVEMBER .4. JL022.
HUNTERS APPEAR IN RED REGALIA Nome People Led to Wonder if Firemen's .Muster Was to Be Held Today ; Many Licenses. Tlie presence of a few men in town this morning who were wearing red caps, coat and sweaters caused some people to wonder if a fireman's muster was to l' held today, bat they were only a few sportsmen who were getting their para phernalia together preparatory to getting a good start into the woods today to take up their position for the opening of the deer season next Monday morning at sunrise. Apparently ome of the sports men are not going to take any chances on being mistaken for deer or other an imals. The bright red line of some of the limiting regalia seen on Main street would certainly stop a high speed train and should prove equally as effective in warding off the aim of too zealous hunt ers. It i believed that about the same num ber of hunters will go forth into the woods this week-end as there were last year. Many of them are leaving in auto mobiles today for isolated sections in the Vermont woods, win-re they will camp over Sunday and be in readiness for deer Monday morning. Town Clerk V. S. Hopkins told The Reformer this morning that thus far he had issued 211 resident, hunting licenses and 27 to non-residents. Most of these have been issued during the last two weeks. Tn addition, 717 resident hunting and fishing licenses have been issued this year, many of these be insr registered the past month. There is much discussion among f-portsinen as to the number of deer in the woods this year. Many believe that hunters wiil find hard work in bagging game this season. (In the other hand t hcr are exnerionoed hnnters who know the lav. of the land and are acquainted with the places where deer are accus tomed to feed, and they are confident of success. The West River valley will have its full quota of hunters, many of them plan ning to go up as far as Jamaica and Townshend and then strike off into tli- woods. Town Clerk Ilookins said he expected oi-S'e a run fn- hunting licenses this afternoon, a there are always a number of Tortsineii who nut off securing them nut :1 the eleventh hour. !,-ve will bring the Yzht and make the ,. ,.,i, ri:id smooth and brush away the difiicuKies.

EXTRA BUSTER KEATON IN "Cops"- News and Fun from the Press NO ADVANCE PRICKS growers what such a specialist wouid give them than anything else. It also would handle matters of co-operative buying and selling, which the extension service cannot do. F. Cabot Holbrook of the Scott 'farm in Dummerston was elected secretary pro tem. following which a round-table was conducted, everyone being asked to express himself on the question. What will an apple growers' association do, for me? The three main points brought out were that the growing of a better quality of fruit could be stimulated by such an organization, that if fruit of high quality is produced in sufficient quantity buyers will be attracted to this section, and that a saving could be made in the co-operative purchase of spraying material, packages, including barrels, boxes and baskets, and other supplies. j Prof. Fred C. Sears, head of the de partment of pomology of the Massachu setts Agricultural college and joint pro prietor of tlie Hay Road fruit farm in Amherst, then gave a talk on What an Association Can Do for the Apple Grower. His talk was based primarily on the suggestions offered by the Massa chusetts Fruit (irowers association, in its winter meeting last year, for build ing up the apple industry. Everybody was then asked to write on a card some question jertainng to apple growing. These were shuffled in a hat and as Frof. Sears took them out one at a time he expressed his opinion and then invited the others to do likewise. The gathering received much valuable information from Prof. Sears. whose talk was exceedingly interesting, as well ss from the interchange of ideas. Prof. Sears said Xew England people demand a red apple, and he advocated in the main the growing of rod apples even though some green apples may be just as good. He said this was a natural apple section, and he believed Windham county could make a name for itself in il ; apple industry. The problems of this section and those of Massachusetts are so nearly alike that the two states can work well together. Prof. Sears recommended the planting of certified trees, which are true to name and free from disease when they leave the nurs ery and cost .only five cents more than non-certiSed trees. Three or four nurs ery houses already are putting out cer tified trees. j It was definitely decided to organize I an association, and these officers were j elected : President. Herald Adams of Marlboro: vice president. Otis W. Ad ams of Halifax; secretary and treas-j nrer. F. Cabot Holbrook of the Scott' farm. Dummerston ; executive commit tee. Dwight Miller of Dumnierston. J. i W. Collins of the Connecticut Valley I Orchard Co. of Westminster, and Carl 1 -Webber of the Scott farm.

Lloyd .George de clared that a policy of tranquility was dangerous. ' , The former premier declared that a tax on capital must be resisted firmly, adding that he did not anticipate any great danger from the revolutionary ele menlsfin the coming elections. " "Avoid the extreme of Socialism." he aid. '"hut do let us also avoid the ex treme of, standstillism. . "A great nation like ours cannot stand still . . You want a .strong group of important men. free from party ties strong enough to insist , on a uteady middle course free from all ex tremes." - The speech of Lloyd George , was in- erpreted by many political-experts as n strong plea for the creation of a cen ter party in the new parliament. Lloyd (eorg declared it was vital that the . Socialist attack should be em phatically repelled.- Although the muni cipal election should show that this dan ger was neither so great nor so immi nent as had been apprehended, there was another danger that tlie majority in the new parliament might be forced into a reactionary course by a powerful and determined minority. That, said Lloyd George, was a real imminent danger. INSURRECTION ON SAMOS. Greek Troops Called to Suppress Rebels Demanding Autonomy. PARIS. Nov. 4 (Associated Press).
