Vermont won by superior hitting, superior baso run ning, the ability to hit In opportune mo ments and to iull out of tight places, In which they found themselves several times during tho game. McCormack pitched a first class game for Vermont, allowing tho Mlddlcbury slick artists only two hits, one of these being of tho scratch variety, striking out six and allowing only two free passes. He was given ragged support at times, however, and had Mlddlcbury shown any hcadwork In baso running, tho final score might have been different. As It was, Mlddlcbury hnd six men caught on bases, a double play In tho fifth, with only ono mer wns caught too far off third, and a moment later Tryon caught Hlpchey oft yccond. Thus two excellent, opportunities to score wero thrown away by Mlddlc bury.

Pence Treaty Will He Signal for New Nation to Fly Own Standard (From tho Springfield Republican) It has been said and repeated that tho poaco treaty would malto over again the map of Kuropo and also that of a largo part of tho globe, nut no ono could even conjecture how many now nationalities will bo crcatod In tho next few months. One thing, however, can bo predicted, that Is, that each of theso countries will have Its own now flag. Everybody could notice the eagerness with which coun tries like Polnnd, Ukralnla, Lithuania, Finland, tho Czecho-Slav territory, etc., havo designed for themselves national flags. It Is In this respect Interesting to bring Into notice a little-known fact tho old est European flag Is that of Denmark. This flag has a strange origin. If wo nre to bcliovo Danish traditions It was suggested to King Waldemar of Den mark by a vision of a cross apiicarlng to him in the sky at a particularly critical moment of his life. It Is more than 700 years since, and the Danish flog has through all tho cen turlcs been such as It was mado by Waldemar. On the eve of the war ono of the young est anions the flngs of the world was tho Australian ting, the standard of tho Anzacs, which covered Itself with glory on the French plains of Artots nnd PI cardy This flag, which Is adorned with tho five stars of the Southern Cross, bears of course, the union Jack upon a field of blue. Before tho war there existed but two flags whoro black and white were allied. Thoy were the Prussian flag and tho new Chinese Hag. Slnco then some young republics have also adopted black among their colors. Black, combined with red and yellow, wns tho German flag and has also long been displayed In the flag of Sarawak. Bed la ono of tho colors found most frequently on tho flags. Aloro than nineteen countries are counted whoso cause remanded, with mandate to bo , mercy of every wave; there are no life- filed later.

In a drizzling rain at Centennial Field Thursday afternoon, thu University of Vermont baseball nlno fought Its way to a C-to-2 victory over Dartmouth In tho first homo game of tho season. Tho gamo wns another notch in tho upward progress of tho freshman pitcher, Klb bee, who earlier In tho week hold Har vard scoreless. Klbbe struck out 13 man Thursdny, and It was largly duo to his pitching In tight places that Vermont was able to hold the Hanover boys In chock. It waa anything but a baseball day. Tho morning's promlso of good weather brought a largo crowd to tho field, but Just as the gamo started, it began t6 drizzle, and this deepened Into a regular shower which lasted during tho greater part of tho gamo, and mado accurato playing very difficult. Considering theso facts, tho gamo was excellently played, It being a wonder to most of the spec tators that thero wero not more errors. A feature of tho contest was tho long hit of Klbbe at tho opening of the soventh Inning, which lauded tho pitcher on third baso and which might havo been stretched to a homer under perfect coaching. As It was, the lilt went for nothing, as Kibbee's teammatc3 were un able to get him across tho plate. Another feature wa3 tho runnlijr stab by Smith of a well-placed hit 6jck of second base In tho first of tho ninth, when tho Dartmouth boys wore making ono last desperate effort to tin tho score. It was a pretty catch and deserved more applause than It got. The best team won. Thero can hardly bo any question about that. Coach lingle's hoys outplayed tho team from Hanover at every stago of tho contest, in hitting, fielding and base running. In tho second Inning when Vermont started her scoring, Nlchol, who started the game in the box for Dart mouth, was removed after he Had tioen flags show a red part.

The court held that tho de fendant showed a reasonable amount of care about tho movement of Its trains, that the plaintiff did not use a reason able amount of caro In approaching tho grado crossing, although the train was standing on the crossing. The question of tho right of a driver of an automo bile to recover damages w'hen operating an unlicensed car, as tho one mentioned was shown to be, also was discussed.

Ono of tho naval carrier-pigeons, "Red Cloud," flew 533 miles In tho incredibly short tlmo of 103 minutes. The longest flight on record, by tho way. Is 1,030 miles, covered In less than threo days. No boats which sail the seas, and scarcely any aircraft, can rival theso birds. As one of the sailors In charge of tho carrier-pigeons explained, "they have no engine troubles." Another bird, "Peer less Pilot," averaged thiee flights a day for 11 months. It Is not generally known that the Germans had some 60,0n0 carrier-pigeons In service, so Important did they consider their work. The allies had 30,000 birds. When tho Gorman armies marched through Belgium, they confis cated every pigeon, and announced that any citizen found with a carrier-pigeon In his possession would bo Instantly shot. In dispatching pigeons at the front the messages are always sent In duplicate. The officer In charge carries a little pad made up of sets of three sheots of pa per, two thin sheets for carbons and a third, hoavier sheet for the record. The sheet, which measures threo by five inch es, is ruled with columns for the date, thu number of the message, tho time, the officer's name, and tho position from which the bird Is set free.

Tho birds ob ject nt first to the llttlo cartridges and try to peck them loose, but soon grow accustomed to them. Tho carrier-pigeons used by our navy abroad have been British or French birds. The champions have been brought to America and will be used for breed ing birds for American flights. Special attention will be paid do this work In future at all naval stations. Tho Brit ish nnd French birds would, of course, be useless If liberated In America, since their homes lie so far away, and In try ing to find them they would bo lost nt sea. When the American air-craft start on their trip across the Atlantic, to keep In touch with botli continents, thoy will carry both American and European birds.

Hamilton filed out to Ross ending the In ning. Vermont's fifth and last score camo in ibo unvnnth. Hamilton reached the ont. took second when Hullhan threw wild to the first sack, third on Marsh's sacrifice and scored on a sacrifice fly to deep right by Berry. Bowman started an other circuit when Ross throw wild to Lavln, after making a nice pick-up of a fast grounder. Bowman went to second on a passed ball and stole third. Smith walked and stole sec ond, but nn excellent chance for two more scores wns spoiled when Palmer filed out to Hlnchey. Mlddlebury's lone tally came In the fourth. With two men out Lavln hit to Marsh, who fumbled. Hamilton con tributed to the cause by hastily pick ing up tho ball and firing wild to first and Lavln romped to second. Hullhan then came across with Mlddlebury s only clean hit of the game, and Lavln advanced to third. Myers hit to Ham ilton, who fumbled nnd Lavln scored. Hullhan overran second on the play and Hamilton caught him with a quick throw to Smith, thus ending the Inning. In Mlddlehury's half of tho fifth, Mead struck out. Marsh dropped an easy Infield fly from Tlmbcrman's bat. Parker walked. With only one out and men on first and second, It looked like another scoro for Mlddlobury, but Elmer hit Into a double play, Hamil ton to Smith to Bowman, and the Inning was over. Again in the sixth and eighth InningB, Mlddlebury had men on bases, but failed to get them ncross the plate. In the sixth, Ross walked and readied second on Smith's mlscue, when Lavln hit. Hullhan reached first when Marsh threw wild, but Ross was caught at third, and Myers went out, McCormack to Bow man. Mlddlebury's failure to take ad vantage of tho opportunity to score In the eighth already has been mentioned nbovo. Vermont had men on second and third In the fifth, with a free pass to Marsh and a hit by Bowman. Both mon pil fered a baso and were ready to score but Smith and Palmer flayed three times apieco at the air and the chance wns lost. In Vermont's half of tho eighth, a hit by Burns, a sacrlflco by Tryon, and a free pass to McCormack, together with two stolen bases, again placed men on second nnd third, but McCormack was caught at second, and Hamilton wan out on a high ono to Lavln A feature of the game was the clever one-hand catch by Smith of a low hit by Myers. The ball was going low over second bane and looked good for a single, when Smith, racing in from his position betweon first nnd arcond, made an aero batlc dive, rolled fiver a couple of tlmps and came up with the ball tightly clutched In his glove.

Much Important legislation was carried through Congress, not upon an lndo pendent basis, but aB a rider attached to another bill to which It frequently bore no relation. In the six appropriation bills which went through since last July, 225 Items were carried which had no bearing whatever on appropriations. The bone dry law for tho District of Columbia waa carried on the war reve nue bill. Two items relating to shipping went on tho army bill, the road-building project was put through along with tho post office appropriation measure.

In the first frame, Dartmouth took a one-run lead After Murphy .had filed out to Hamilton, u-.pt took first on n hnrd grounder which Smlt.. missed. The Dartmouth man stole second and scored on a three-baso drive by Mer rltt along tho third baso line. Tlie hitting of .Merrltt for Dartmouth was ono of the big events of tiie game. Ho secured a triple and a double and hit consistently throughout Dartmouth's only otiier tally came In the seventh, when Rellley doubled at tho opening of the Inning, Grey walked. vi uiiLifiiuji nit intu omun nanus at sec ond and Grey was out at that station.

Vormont scored two runs In tho second and put the game In the Ice-chest In tho fourth. Bowman, the first man up in the second, was given a free ticket by Nlchol after the pitcher had looked him over and seen him nearly lose a ball in tho deep' left garden on a foul. On a sacrifice bunt by Smith, Bowman advanced to second. Murphy tumbled Palmer's drive, and Bow man went to third. Palmer stole second. Burns contributed a timely single and both runners scored. Tryon singled to left. Klbbo hit aijd Burns was caught at third, Klbbco getting to first and Tryon to second. Hamilton flied out and the scoring was over. Again In the fourth, tho hitting opened up. Smith wnlked, and went to second when Murphy again failed to get one from Palmer's stick. A wild throw sent both men up a station, and Smith scored on a sacrifice by Burns, whllo Palmer romped across the plate when the catcher threw wild to head off Tryon, who had reached first on the pitcher's error. Kib bce was out on strikes, but Hamilton banged out a nice single and Tryon scored. Hamilton was out at second when Marsh hit to Kopf. Both teams mado good use of their op portunities to score, very few men being left on bases. Dartmouth never shoved a man as far as third except at tho times when she scored. It was one-two-thrco order in practically every Inning except those already mentioned. Altogether, It wns a real brand of baseball. In the fourth, fifth and sixth Innings, Klbbeo got eight strlke-outs In succes sion, and it began to look as though tho Dartmouth boys had acquired the habit.
