Mayor James H. Burko returned Fri
day morning from a trip to Hay York
ivhlcli lie mado with Goorgo F. Clarcy
of this city, who la looking up tho
property of his father, Junius Claroy,
whoso existence for several years as a
prosperous baker of Now York was
brought to light by his death at St.
Vincent's hospital a short time ago, Mr.
Claroy -will return to Hurllngton this
wcci. lie will not carry on his father'!!

It was ascertained that .lames Clarey's
Jortutie amounted to $2O,'J0O, ot which
)M,00Q translated of a mortgage owned
by hlin, $12,000 was In bank books and
tho balaneo Invested In IiIh bakery busi
ness. Mr. Claroy h.id established
tranches In and about New York city
and In several cities outside. He had
becomo interested In a rotary gas oven,
Which he placed In all the bakeshups he
Iromoted. He aim made n specialty of
a brand of bread known as the "O-X-O"
loaf. JIo owned an automobile und em
ployed a chauffeur to carry hi in about
w his various placos of business. Mr.
Clarey n-v. er disclosed his Identity to a
dlr.slu person and died without stating
tha- r.o had living relatives. Shortly be
fore r.U def-th, however, he sont for his
friend and attorney, T, P. DeOraftcnreld,
lo mako home communication but when
tho attorney arrlvod Claioy was dead.
AnoUior curious circumstance was do
voloped during Mayor Burko's visit, and
that was a. renowal of hla aCqualntanco
with tho lato Mr. Clarey's brother, .lohn
13. Clarcy, who la now living at Madison,
N. J. Tho iatter formerly lived In Hur
lington, whero ho was a bookkeeper, and
will bo recalled by many of tho older
geneiatlon. Ho married a Burlington girl,
Mies Nellie S. Northrop, hero in 1STS,
From Hutllngton ho went West and en
gaged in the newspaper huslness, later
coming back Knt and locating at
Madison, N. J. He Is now one of the
prominent citizens of tho town and is
editor and owner of tho Madison Enclc.
Ho, too, thought hl3 brother wa dead
find never dreamed of the fact that
.lames was living In New York, only
".0 miles away. Stranger than that was
t'10 f.iet that Jamas frequently wuit to
Midlson on business trips but he never
pave any indication that ho knew his
brother, .Prim, was living there, although
John was a prominent man in the llfo of
tho town and .Tnm"s must havo known
James always posed as a bachelor with
out relatives, and tho fact that he might
have had surviving- kin was only dis
closed after his death when It was dis
covered there were two bank books
iimong his possessions in the namo of
his two oldest children, (renrgo and
Cella, having been deposited to tho
account of each in a New York bank

OIlielalH Should Keep In Closo Touch
wlH Legal Ollleer.
The annual report of Ezra M. Horton,
city attorney, tor thu year 191 S has been
completed and tiled. Mr. Ilorton cites
the case of Leary vs. tho city of Bur
lington as the most Important litigation
of tho year In which tho city has been
engaged. Judgment of $3,500 was obtain
ed against tho municipality. Tho com
pany which Iiusured tho city against
claims for damages In the electric light
department refused to defend tho casu
on the grounds that tho city had violated
the terms of Its in'-urnnco policy. Tho
question of liability will bo finally decided
when tho ease has be-n passed upon by
tho supremo court. Tho other Important
cases In which tho city Is now Interested
are the action against tho Central Ver
mont Rnilway company, which embrace
the questions of a public dock and the
extension of College street to tho lake.
There cases havo been heard and aro
now with tho commissioners who have
the report. This will terminate the
litigation nnd give the city lake
front property for a public wharf luid
etfnd College street to the water's edge.
The city attorney calls attention to the
futt that legal questions havo arisen in
all the departments this year and points
out as a necessary the fact that tho
oflldals should keep in constant touch
with the city's legal ollleer. Tho report
mentions that tho mayor and board of
aldermen have demonstrated that they
are city managers, having an action
begun by them llnally sustained by tho
court of chancery which established their
powers as to the control of city olllcers.

An Impression that tho rnport of tho
Carneglo Foundation for tho advance
ment of teaching to the commission to
Investigate tho educational system nnd
conditions of Vermont was not absolute
ly lrrofutnblo In Its logic, especially In
Its conclusions as to what will bo the
dire result of the college of medlclno of
the University of Vermont raising Its
standard ot preparatory education, led a
Free Press reporter to call on Dr. II. C.
Tlnkhnm, dean of tho medical faculty,
and ask him how tho faculty accepted
tho reasoning ot tho foundation export
Or Tlnkliam had rendthoreport asprlnt-
ed in Urn educational supplement to the
Freo PresH last week and ho said
he had come to the conclusion thnt tho
foundation lnvestlgutors woro not al
togother what ho would term logical In
thu argument that tho entering medical
la scs would gradually decrease In nam
ber of students, based on tho fact that
only 12 entered In the year 1912 bocauso
of thu now rule tlml onn year of col
lege work nt least Is required for ad
mission to the medical department.
Proceeding from tho statement that
cnly 1- medical students enteral In the
class of 1912, tho first torm the now
preparatory requirements went into
iff'Ct, tho Carneglo Foundation export
a ya ; '
"Of thesu twelve only three wero from
tho Stato of Vermont, four were admitted
from other medical schools without col
iego training, whllo ono was a repeater
turned back from the former class. In
other words, only by a very liberal con
structlon of tho entmnco requirements
ios the entering class as large as twelvo.
It Is clear that when tho full entrance riv
qulroment of two years of college work
goes Into effect, thu school must accept
an entering class certainly not larger
than ten, and that It can scarcely hope
to graduate each year morn than four or
live doctor', the majority of whom will
probably come from outsldo of Vermont."
It would have been logical, said Dr.
rinkhitm, commenting on tho foregoing,
had there not a tingln student entered
tho class of 1912. Notice was given out
In 1910 that tho new requirements for
admission, ono year of collego work at
least, would go Into effect after 1911. As
only tho high school cnrtllicato of gradua
tion ivas necessary when thu announce
ment was mado It would havo been no
object for tho students to havo waited
until 1912, since nil might havo Joined tho
entering class of 1911 and thus escaped doing
the extra year of college work demanded.
Tho fact thero wero 12 students to entor
tho class of 1912 was more or less of a
surpriso but nevertheless gratifying.
It is obvious, said Dr. Tlnkharn, that
If a higher educational preparation Is de
manded from prospective students In any
Institution, tho first year the new rule Is
In effect, will see a smaller number of
entering students but It Is not logic to
reason that each succeeding year will
mark a decrease In the liumbcr.
The College of Medicine has already
passed through one experience of raising
the standard of preparatory work, find
ing that entering classes were smaller at
first nnd then beginning to Increase. Tho
facts will bear out the truth of this
statement. In 1S9S, when the four-years'
course was established, tho students en
tering the medical rollego were required
to havo nt least a high school educa
tion. Tho class entering that year grad
uated In 1901 and thero were only 15
members. In 1902 the number of grad
uates Increased to 111. Tho class of 190."
had the same number and tho tia?s of
1901 graduated K doctors. This would
lndicato early recovery from tho new
Dr. Tlnkhani also called attention to
the fact that the Carnegie Foundation
has nothing to say beyond mcro ref
erence about tho entering class of 1913,
the second year tho ono year's college
preparation was required. Tho number of
entering students was IS, which certain
ly shows an Increaso over tho first year.
And In this connection It Is well to look
forward to what H going to happen in
1914. Tho dean of tho faculty Is nlready
In receipt of letters from prospective stu
dents outsldo thn Stato who will enter
tho College of Medlclno after a year'n
work In college and as a still weightier
argument as to what tho futuro of en
tering clows wHl be, Dr. Tinkham points
out that thero nre now no less than 3
students In the academic department of
tho University of Vermont doing their
year in college so that they may enter
tho medical department next year. All of
these students might have entered Tufts,
Albany Medical College, or medical
sohooln in Baltlmoro and Philadelphia
last fall as only a high school education
is required by them. Tho prospects aro
excellent, snld Dr. Tlnkliam, that tho en
tering medical class of 1911 will number
