.University Authorities Satisfied
with Attendance.
Kaaot Number at Present la 105 and
St Least Five More Are Expected
Nearly One-Third Are Young
Figures compiled up to date show that
there are 195 new studontB at the Uni
versity of Vermont for this college year.
Theenrollment for the Medical College Is not
quite complete, and there are enough new
Students In view whose names are not yet
on the enrollment list, to bring the num
ber up to 200. Taking Into consideration
the national situation and tho general un
certainty of the times, the university au
thorities feel that the attendance In keep
ing up much better than could really have
been expected.
Of the list of 195 new students given be-
i low, 134 are men and 61 women. According
to the registration cards, 18 of the new
tudenta (15 men and three women) are
'. transfers, post-graduates, or advance
medical students, belonging to some other
class except the freshman. The remainder,
119 men and 68 women, are members of
the class of 1921. Where not otherwise
stated In the list here printed, the stu
dents are members of that class. In those
cases where the State is not given, It Is
understood that the students come from

Body of William I.nvlgne, llnckman,
Found In Hnlhvny.
William Lavtgne, a hack driver, was
found dead In tho hallway on the second
Uoor of tho Burlington block Tuesday
afternoon by James D. McCarthy.
Tho man was lying on his back near a
door where It Is inferred he had tried to
gain admittance. The left leg and the left
arm were slightly elevated, the heel of
the man's shoe resting on tho floor. It
was quite evident front the way In which
the man held his arm that he had
endeavored to save himself when he fell.
The man could not have been long dead
because when Health Officer F. J. Ennls
nnd 'Chief of Police P. J. Russell arrived
at the place the body was still warm.
The man had suffered from heart dis
ease many times In the past, and had been
taken to his home In tho police ambulance
a couplo of times. He did not venture out
yesterday morning because of Ill-health,
but early In the afternoon ho remarked
to a friend that he thought he would
hitch up and earn a half dollar." A
coincidence of the man's death was tho
fact that the man had just earned the
half dollar from Miss Nora Downey, whoso
two dress suit cases had but a moment
before he fell deposited on the landing on
tno second floor.
Lavlgne was about 16 years of nee. un
married and is survived by a brother, be
sides the sister with whom lie lived. The
brother is Elroy Lavlgne of Hlnesburg.
The body was removed to the undertaking
parlors or Head & Dower on Pearl street
and prepared for burial.
Captain Hudson of Company M Cable
Ht Arrival.
Mrs. William N. Hudson, wife of Cap
tain Hudson of Company M, received a
cablegram Saturday from her husband,
now In France, which stated that "all
were safe." Tho date when tho cable
gram wns sent was omitted, as was tho
place. The last time Mrs. Hudson heard
from her husband wns on October 3, ho
having posted a letter on a lighter that
was conveying him and his men to a
waiting transport. Whether It has taken
the men 17 days or not to reach tho
other sldo Is not definitely known, but
this is probable as the transports do not
pur-iuo the usual' courses while crossing
to tho European continent.
Mr. Ellen Phillip Urlug Action
ngnlnxt Union Mutunl Compnuy.
The Union Mutual Fire Insurance com
pany of Montpelier was made the de
fendant In an action of contract Tues
day by Ellen Phillips of this city. The
caso will bo tried at the March term of
county court.
In tho petition the plaintiff claims dam
ages In the sum of J1.000, for the recovery
of which, with Just costs, she brings suit.
Mrs. Phillips sets forth that on the Stli
day .of December, 19iri, her dwelling house,
barn, Including all her personal property,
was burned In the town of Bolton.
She further sets forth that on the 1Mb
day of October, 1913, In consideration of
$3.68 and a premium note for the sum of
$30 paid the defendant company, said de-1
rendant company insured all of the prop
erty of the petitioner agninst loss by Are
to the amount of ?70o.
Mrs. Phillips now alleges that she
notified the defendant company of the
destruction of her property in Bolton by'
Are and also furnished the company with
proof of her loss. Sho claims that the de
fendant company has not paid, has re
fused and still refuses' to pay her the
amount of $700, or any part thereof. It is
for this sum with damages that the plain
tiff brings suit.

Three weeks from to-day, the National
Paper Tube & Box company will resume
operations. Tho business will be located
In the second story of the main building
of tho Vermont Milk Chocolate company's
plant on l'lne street. This was decided
on Thursday.
Workmen began laying the flooring of
tho second story Thursday, and the now
machlnory with which tho works Is to bo
equipped is already on tho way. Tho de

Tho company had soveral largo orders to
fill nt the time their plant In the nnnex
to tho old skating rink building was
burned. Already these havo been aug
mented, and in order to keep faith with
customers, tho company has sent out
many of tho hurry-up orders to manu
facturing concerns In nearby States. This
was dono to supply their patrons nnd re
tain their patronage.
Tho National Paper Tube & Box com
pany decided to accept the offer of the
Vermont Milk Chocolate company of the
second floor of the main building, when It
was learned that tho Chocolate company
would bo unable to Install machinery for
tho full opomtlon of the plant at this tlmo
becauso of war conditions. Tho Chocolate
company thus gives tho Paper Tube & Box
peoplo an opportunity to look nround bo
fore deciding to build a modern plant for
their growing Industry.
C. S. Lord, the treasurer of tho Paper
Tube & Box company, was responsiblo In
no small way for an easy adjustment of
the flro loss with the Insurance people,
becauso of tho detailed manner In which
the business books of tho concern were
kept. Only1 30 mluutos were occupied In
adjusting tho loss suffered by tho concern.
.and Mr. Lord was buL$30 out of tho way
in his calculations as to tho fire loss.
Xext Drive of th- Xntlonnl Food Ad
ministration. A national potato week Is the next drive
which the food administration of the na
tion is to push. A circular setting forth
tho Important points upon which emphasis
should be lnld In connection with this
week has been received by E. L. Ingalls
of the State agricultural extension staff.
This bulletin brings out the following
three points: (1) That there should be
wider knowledgo of tho value of the
potato In dally life; (2) that we should
emphasize the use of the potato as a
substitute for wheat in many cases In the
homo; (3) because of the Imperative de
mand that we' should save moro wheat. It
Is necessary that we develop the pos
sibilities of home-made potato starch and
use of the same in cooking, that we should
learn the proper grading, selection nnd
marketing of potatoes and the selection of
seed for next season's work. The proper
storing or the potato crop Is an Item which
should also receive much attention, nc
cording to tho bulletin.

A major's commission is ns high a

At the meeting of the city council pre

sided, the matter of the resignation of

of atdormen wns to listen to a report
from a committee of throe aldermen,
Messrs. Woodbury, Baylies and Lamson,
concerning tho-municipal lighting plant.
Tho result of this report leaves the city
In tho same position it wnB before the

Although the mayor had Instructed the
committee to bring In a written report,
tho data was not In an complete a form
as could be wished , for, so Alderman
Woodbury spoko verbally of what had
been learned by the committee after an
As a rule, all the talk by the board cen
tered around the question of what would
ba saved by the city if a contract were
made with the Burlington Light & Power
company to furnish the city the necessary
power to 'carry on its work. Two other
concerns were mentioned who desired to
furnish tho city with power, one in Fair
fax and the other In Brandon.
On tho question of making a permanent
contract with tho Llghtis Power com
pany, tho city attorney was kept busy
answering tho legal questions that would
enter Into the case. There was nlso a little
discussion as to whether or not the city
would retain the services of the present
superintendent and the other employes.
James J. Whelan, one of tho heavy tax
payers of the city, spoke to tho board
on how cheaply largo cities In other
States were buying electricity, some
cities securing power from companies at
as low as eight cents per kilowatt. Mr.
Whelan was of tho opinion that it would
bo a good Idea to sell the present mu
nicipal plant, and said that he had been
Informed by a member of tho committee
Investigating the matter that It could be

the city.
Of the three electric light commission
ers, but one waa present, Alphonse H.
Duhamcl, and he happened In as a spec
tator. The other commissioners are
Claude D. Oraton and Frank C. Lyon.
Another piece of business taken up by
the board was the recently adopted reso
lution giving the Light & Power Co.
authority to erect poles through certain
streets of the city to the Vermont Choco
late company's plant. The company
wished to have this resolution re-con-sldercd
because of certain things added
to the resolution as adopted at the last
meeting of the board. The wish of the
company was acquiesced In, and the reso
lution was laid on the table.

Vermont Fared Well In Prizes at
Nine Teama from aa Many Tenia In
State Had Definite Part In Pro
gram at Eastern State'
K. L. Ingalls, leader of boys and girls'
clubs In the State, has Just returned from
the eastern State Exposition at Spring
field, Mass., where he waa in charge of
the exhibit of tho Vermont boys and girls
at the food training camp. Mr.- Ingalls Is
of the opinion that the Vermont exhibits
were up to the standard of those of any of
tho 10 eastern States competing for prises,
and It is felt that this State carried oft its
share of the prizes. This Is only the sec
ond year that Vermont has sent Its young
people to Springfield with exhibits. Al
though not so many exhibits were sent
this year as last, the quality was much
higher, and more teams were sent down
for the Judging contests.
Vermont was represented at the exposi
tion by nine teams from as many differ
ent towns of the State, composed of about
60 club leaders and members who took a
definite part In the program. These teama
took 65 prizes In the exhibits, and a good
proportion prizes In demonstration and
Judging contests. The first prize in the
garment demonstration work went to a
team of girls from Lyndon and Plttaford.
The handicraft team from St. Johnsbury
took first place In the demonstration con
test. In the potato Judging contest, a
team of boys from Randolph Center took
second place. The Vermont canning dem
onstration team, composed of girls from
Lyndon and St. Johnsbury, took third
place in the demonstration contest, which
was very closely contested between seven
Warner Scrlbner,- one of the boys from
St. Johnsbury, received the sweepstakes
r-ward in handicraft demonstration and
Judging combined.
Some of the teams which took part in
the contests were composed of boys and
girls from several different towns of tho
Stato. Windham county was represented
by a pig-Judging team. Ton young peoplo
from Bennington county, and also from
Windham county, won free trips to the
exposition through the excellence of their
club work.
Each morning a general assembly of
all club members at the exposition was
held and nn address given by some person
prominent In club work, or in some phase
connected with It. Among-the speakers
who addressed these meetings were: T.
N. Vail, president.-of the New England
Telephone & Telegraph company; O. H.
Benson, in charge of the club work at
Washington, D. C; Howard W. Selby,
president of theAmerlcnn Vegetable Grow
ers' society of Philadelphia; and J. A.
Scheuerle, manager of the field department
of the Eastern States Exposition.
Probably the most Important effect that
this exposition will have upon the young
people Is expressed In the words of T,
N'ewhlll, one of the club leaders at Wash
lngton, D. C, who says: "The boys' and
girls' club work stands for the best In
agriculture and home life through paths
of real achievement." Mr. Ingalls feels
that a large number of boys and girls in
Vermont who attended this exposition will
come back to the State with a larger
Ideal of life, with something definite to
strive for during the coming year, and
with a clearer Idea of what It means to
put In their best work to make things
grow for the good of the State and the
people who live In It.

The work of the charity canning com

vegetables and fruit, of which 60 cans
were contributed to the committee for
the relief of Franco and 96 cans sold to
each of tho six church societies Interested
In the work, at a cost to them of a fraction
less than three cents per quart can, which
represents the actual cost to the commit

far below the expectations of the pro

true conservation of that quantity of food.
and the foodstuffs conserved will also be
a comfort to the poor this winter, so far
as tt will reach.
Much credit Is duo those few women
representatives from the various church
societies who gavo much time and effort
to the work. The project seemed to lock
In popularity as against other projects and
because of limited responses for assist

Torpedo Was the Cassin
Commander on Job.
Washington, Oct. 22. Coolness and
quick mnnoouverlng by Commander
Walter H. Vernou probably saved the
American destroyer Cassin from de
struction In an encounter with a Ger
man submarine In the war zone on Oc
tober 1C, the navy department was ad
vised to-day by Vice Admiral Sims in
his full report of tho fight, meagre de
tails of which were received last week.
Before sho had an opportunity to fire
a shot the destroyer was hit on the
stern by a torpedo which killed Gun
nersmato Osmond Kelly Ingram, slight
ly wounded flvo others of the crow and
put one engine out of commission.
The Cassin had been searching half an
hour for a submarine first sighted five
miles away when Commander Vernon
suddenly saw a torpedo 400 yards distant
and making for the ship nt great speed.
Realizing that his vessel was In Imminent
danger of being hit amidships nnd broken
In two, the commander ordered full speed
ahead and the wheel hard over. The
patrol boat was Just clear of the torpedo's
path when the projectile broached on th
surface, turned sharply and hit Its objec
tive. Recovering quickly from the shock of
the explosion, the Cassin continued tho
search to bo rewarded by the showing of
tho U-boat conning tower. Four shots
were sent at the German and two came so
close that the submarine quickly went
under water.
With all men alert at their stations, the
destroyer continued Its hunt until dark
ness. Later, convoyed by other American
and British patrol boats, she made port.
In the mean time officers and men had
made temporaary repairs. Admiral Slmi
reported that the behavior of the odlccr
and entire crew was admirable. He g:iv.
special credits to Commander Vernon and
commended Lieutenants MacLaren, Saun

In effecting repairs nnd for their coolness
