The town is known the world over as a religions and as nn edu cational center. Few know of the thrill ing fctory of her early years which are more full of adventure and of romanw than most towns in America, since Northfield for nearly 100 years was an outpost of civilization and the northerly base of oiierations against the JnUians and the French. To keep alive the memory of her stir ring days in the minds of the rising gen eration, to inform those who have re cently become residents hero, and to spread abroad information of her . an cient annd honorable record are a lew of the reasons why each citizen should give his enthusiastic assistance to the celebration project. Two appropriations, one of $25 and one of $75, have been-voted by the town. the first in February, 1920. and the second in May, 1922, to be tised by the committee in preliminary preparations for the celebration of the two anniversaries.

WOULD BROADEN NAVAL LIMITATIONS House Committee Asks President To Have Smaller Types of War Ves sels Inculded in Treaty. WASHINGTON, Dec. 14 (Associated Press.) A request that President Harding seek to broaden the scope of the naval limitation) cgreeemnt, so as to include a limitation on construction of smaller types of war vessels and on military and naval aircraft, js included in the annual naval bill as reported yesterday by the house appropriations committee. The president would be asked to open negotiations with Great Rritaintf France, Italy and Japan for an agreement wiuci. would limit future .building of all surface and submersible types of war craft hav ing a tonnage of 10,000 or less, and on all classes of army and navy aircraft. In its reports the committee pointed out that the arms conference did not limit the number or types of smaller war ves sels and added that -information had reached congress '"that already large pro grams are planned of vessels up to the maximum size permitted under the agree ment and that new and larger types of sub-surface craft have begun to put in an appearance"." . "In ohr words", the report continued, "competition i3 on again in the single di rection to which the unratified agreement does not extend and if it be allowed to go on unchecked the purse strings again must be relaxed, and this government like all others, will be constrained to launch upon a new program to the extent necessary to keepj us at least abreast of any of the other powers.''
