II. C, Farrar of Rutland was In chargo of tho program. The Rev. Chauncey Adams offered prayer. Tho address of welcome In behalf of tho city was given by Attorney Vernon A. Bullard, who spoke of the heartiness with which Burlington greeted the Odd Fel lows and the Rebokahs, the deeds of charity, etc., performed by the order, tho great opportunity for development In tho future along with the great forward movement, and said that Bur lington would like to see tho conven tion hero often. Past Grand Master Oscar W. Edwards of Burlington was the next speaker. Ho told of the number of members In the order, some 2,000,000 In all, tho part It played In tho war, Its principles, as applied to the world at the present time, and expressed slncero regrets that the grand sire of the sovereign lodge could not bo In Burlington for tho convention Selections were sung by tho quartette of tho First hurch, composed of Messrs.

For an enchore she sang Liza Lehmann's "Daddy's Sweetheart" with such simpli city nnd sweetness as to completely win her audience.

I want to see Vermonters represent ed In greater numbers than heretofore, Vermont has come forward tho past few years In cattle arising and In building herds of tho finest stock. The premiums to be offered by tho State fair commission are of such a liberal character every owner of blood ed stock in Vermont, Now Hampshire, New York and In fact In every eastern States should bo attracted by them, and I am sure that most of them will be. But I personally would like to see Vermont mnke a hotter showing than she has heretofore. There are many Ver monters who have never exhibited. Yet, thore Is no reason why they should not. If Information is desirea auout tno rules and conditions govornlng exhibits I will bo pleasod to furnlsli it to nny ono on request, and further, to aid in nny other way posslbto to bring Vermont to tho front as a State of high grado cattle breeding." , .

SITE FOR GHAUTAUQUA THE GREAT PROBLEM Guarantors Perfect Organization and Promise a Program for 1919 Even Better Than That of Last Year, Which Met with Universal Approval TIcltBt committee Georjre P. Cole, chair-1 man, ho to choose his own committee oi assistants. Burlington's Chautauqua organization for the season of 1019 was perfected Tues day noon at a luncheon nt the Van Ness House which was attended by about a score of the guarantors. Judge Clinton A. Barber was unanimously elected presi dent, with Ellhu B. aft as vice-president and H. IC Loatherman secretary and treasurer. Tho njeetlng was an enthusiastic ono and much Interest was taken over the program to be offered to tho public this year by the Redpath Chautauqua sys tem, which Is far bettor than last year's, and last year's program was considered to tfe well worth twice tho prlco of tho season ticket. First of all, tho most serious problem which confronts the Chautauqua organiza tion Is the site. Last year's site has been turnod over to a peace garden and there fore Is not available. So far as was known Tuesday no lot largo enough In tho central part of tho city could be utilized and this situation will be tho most difficult ono to meet of them all. A canvass of tho entire city, tnking in every street, avenue, place and terrace, is to be made by the ticket sellers ,who will probably ho appointed 'by wards and the minimum amount of tickets that tho committee is to try and soil is 1,000. If this amount of tickets Is sold nono of tho CO guarantors will bo obliged to pay a cent of guarantee money. No chamra in the nrico of tho tickets. the nSults' being J2.20 for tho season, which Includes war tax, and tho children's being 11,10, also Including war1 tax, will bo made this year, but a much higher grado pro gram will bo offered for tho same money, The comm.teo feels that thcro Is no doubt but what 1,000 tickets can bo sold In advanco, becnuso It realizes that the public enjoyed tho program of Inst season and surely got tholr monoy's worth out of overy part of tho performances. The committees appointed consist of tho following: Orounds committee Harry 8. Howard, chairman, James P. Kclloy, L. M. Simp son, B. J, Boynton, C. S. Lord and Dr. II. R. Watklns. Publicity committee J. H. Lawton, Dally News, chairman, W. H. antes. Dally Free Press, 0. J, Boatty and B. E. Bris-tol. WHEREABOUTS OP SOME U. V. M.
