Department of Agricul ture, .Washington,, D, c, ENGINEERS IN DEMAND Fine Position In Sight for Young' tirnduntew of University of Vermont Tho domnnd for University of Vermont engineers was nover so great In tho his tory of tho college ns It Is at present, according to Denn J, W. Votcy, who said yesterday that slnco Inst summer thero had been a steady strcnm ot Inquiries for men, nnd splendid positions wcro going begging for tho reason that thero wcro no men to send, A year ago tho men began to receive their discharges from tho nrmy nnd to aak tho rotlcgo au thorities to obtain positions for them. This was done So rapidly that In tho summer tho supply of men had been used up. Slnco then new positions hnvo been filled only by taking men from other positions which woro not so good. This spring tho big concerns are not only writing for men but nro sending up their representatives to look tho class over nnd to get tho most deslrnblo ones. Tho method generally used Is to give a short talk before the entire class nnd then to talk with tho men Individually. Among tho concerns which havo already dono this aro tho Amorlcan, New York and Now England Tclecphone nnd Tele graph companies, tho Wcstlnghouso Electric nnd Slanufacturlng company Edison Lamp Works, Western Electric company nnd many others. Thero nro 22 engineering students In tho senior class this year, and that will only be a small fraction ot thnso needed to till positions. Whether because tho engineers showed up so well In the war or because of somo other reason, tho larger companies aro putting engineers Into cxecutlvo positions as never before, .Thoy are also using them In the commercial, traffic and many other departments. Somo of tho men nro put Into Bchools where they receive spe cial training for a fow months. Concerns, In nddltlon to those named, who are after Vermont engineers this year nro tho Goodyear The & Rubber company, tho Standard Oil company who will uso them In tho sales department as well as tho engineering department, American En gineering company, Henry L. Dougherty & Co. of Toledo, General Slotors Export company, and many companies which never sought trained engineers before. In somo of the electrical concerns thero is a demand for engineers oven though they haven t taken tho clcctrice.l course. There nro positions In all parts of the world to-day. Water development Jobs nro plentiful, ns nro also positions in tho structural lines. Tho salaries nro much better than formerly and a grad uate an soon aa ho stops studying goes Into a position paying him two or three times what It did a fow years ago. Not one engineer will gradunto from the Unl verslty of Vermont this year who will not havo tho choice of at least a dozen positions some of them as far away as tno Philippines. Thero nro so many Ver mont men occupying prominent positions In engineering firms at tho present tlmo thnt it helps to mako positions for tho new graduates, for tho reason that they naturally wrlto tuck to their own college for men.

Now England was confronted to-day with almost complete Isolation so far as transportation of food, coal nnd raw materials was concerned. Tho situation, caused by stringent fi eight embargoes of through lines of railroads In this section duo to tho "Insurgent" strlko of railroad workers, hourly was becoming moro serious. Congestion of trnfflc nt all New Eng land gateways tins brought about a de crease In tho movement of freight until essential commodities aro merely trickling In. Railroad officials predicted that un less relief was forthcoming within 49 hours further drastic cuts would bo mado In all branches of traffic becauso of lack of coal which almost has ceased to como Into New England. Industrial establishment In every Now England State aro feeling severely tho Inability to procure coal or raw materials. An Industrial shut Is probable, Its was said, unless coal can bo spcodlly brought In. Railroad workers with few excep tions continued to-day to remain loyal to tho lines In this section. Fewer than 200 men wero said to bo out, all of them In Connecticut. Slany transpor tation officials havo volunteered their services In an effort to movo neces sities tied up In tho freight yaris at tho various gateways. Reports on food supplies of the cities indlcato that In most places suf flccnt) quantities of fresh meats have been Btorcd to last from a weok to ton days. Supplies of milk havo been mov ed without Interference and In most places largo amounts of canned goods woro being hold In reserve. Tho Boston & Maine Railroad has declared an absolute embargo on all freight out of Now England. Tho em bargo effects seriously railroads In Slalno and Vermont, for which tho Boston & Maine Is tho connecting sys tem, with tho lines ngalnat which the embargo Is specifically directed. Tho coal shortage on this road Ib serious. MAXY FARMERS TAKE VV ACCOUNT ING One-day farm accounting courses nre now being given In IS States through tho co-operation of tho United States De partment of Agriculture nnd tho Stato agricultural colleges In farm manage ment extension work. Tho primary ob ject of theso courses Is to Interest tho farmer In farm bookkeeping ns an essen tial to efficient farm management. While tho assistance which tho courses glvo In calculating a farmer's Income tax If of great value, It is necessarily secondary. This is tho first year in which this meth od of Introducing farm accounting has been undertaken on such a large scale. Tho schools are carried on In co-operation with tho county agents. Tho ono-day ses sions are occupied with calculations mado by tho farmers themselves under tho su pervision of tho Instructor, and discus sions of such topics as tho relatlvo v.iluo of various crops, the slzo of crop yields, the quality and quantity of llvo fitock for a farm of given size, tho slzo of the farm business as a whole, and tho farm layout, and tho uso of labor all factors vitally affecting farm cflVclency. VALUABLE ANIMALS Tho ancient Egyptians worshipped tho sacred bull Apis and of course set up statues In his honor. Slodern bulls aro not worshipped, but prizo animals have memorials erected, as Is shown by this dispatch from Pittsburg to The New York Tribune: Emperors, oil magnates and such like aro not tho only ones whose memory will be perpetuated by a monu ment. King Vnldessa Pontlac, Holsteln bull of International fame, Is to have one. It will bB raised over his gravo on the farm of John A. Bell, wealthy Pittsburg banker, coal operator and stock fancier. King Valdessa Pontlac was valued at moro than JDO.OOO and woro a crown as tho world's groatost bull, and no moro was over dono to save tho life of an Emepror or millionaire than was dono to save the life of King Pontlac. Surrounded by a corps of famed veterinarians and trained nurses, the famous bull died ater a series of operations. When King Pontlac be- camo 111 several weeks ago Sir. Bell, who bought him as a calf four years ago, summoned two local veterinarians. Theso suggested that Dr. G. L. Marshall, famous Philadelphia veterinarian, and the latter's brother, Pennsylvania State official veterinarian, bo sent for. This was done. Tho four oxperts performed an unsuccessful operation, FERTILIZER SCARCE ORDER EARLY Tho sampling agents of the Vermont Experiment Station are now on the road sampling fertilizers nnd feeds. They find that not many fertilizers have as yet been received In Vermont, and that the trade Is four to six weeks late. Only nbout three-fourths tho usual ton nago of fertilizers havo boen made, be causo of long continued strikes In the phosphato mines, shortage ot rail and ocean transportation and tho fact that the supplleB of nitrate, potash salts and other Ingredients havo been curtailed nnd sometimes almost impossible to secure. And there is another reason in that the demand Is 10 per cent, greater than last year, Tho result will be that tho man who orders late Is moro likely than usual this year to fall to got what he wants when he wants It. Carload lots nro moro likely to got through than small ordors. Tho extension servlco of tho University of Vermont suggests prompt orders and tho pooling of orders so that carload lots and carload frolght rates may bo secured. ST. LOUIS OR BOSTON? Washington, April 14. St. Louis, fourth city of tho country in 1910, had a popu lation of 773,000 on January 1, this year, and showed an Increase of 85,071, or 13.5 per cent over ten years ago. The rato of growth during tho last ten yoars was tho dmallcst of any decade slnco the founding of the city and the increase In numbeva was smaller than In any de cado slnco that ending In 1880, when the rate of Increaso was 12.8 per cent. Whether St. Louis or Boston will rank as the country's fourth largest city ns a result of the 1920 census added Interest to the announcement to-day of St, Louis' population, Boston's population has not yet been mado public. St. Louis ranked fourth In 1910, having moro inhabitants than Boston. Since 1910 Boston has an nexed tho town of Hyde Park, having a population In 1910 of 15,607.

"Stars always challenges Interest," says William Joseph Showaltor In a communi cation to tho National Geographic so ciety. "Its day Is about tho flame length aa ours, but Its year Is nearly twlco as long. Although astronomers generally take less Interest than laymen In tho surmise as to whether other planets, and stars are In habited, since they, more than laymen, realize that this Is a problem that must In oil human probability remain unsolved, tho question Is more often asked about Stars than any other planet. "Venus was an unusually Interesting ob ject In the sky during July ot last year. Not again until February, 1921, will it ap pear as bright and fair In tho evening sky. It has phases llko tho moon, and theso can bo seen oven through a good field-glass. Its dny Is believed to be the samo length as Its year, which is 224 of our days. "It Is quite generally believed that Mara has Ice-capped poles. Tho telescope re veals whlto spoto at the poles that hava every appearance of being like our ocean Polar region. They advance toward the equator In winter and rotreat In summer. In tho summer of 1916, Pickering, who, with Lowell, has led the schol of astron omers who believe they can bco canals on Mars, said that ho found tho white caps stretching farther down toward the equator than he had ever Been them be fore. "Ho said that If there was any connec tion betwoen tho weather of a Stars and that of tho earth, tho winter of 1918-17 would be the coldest In many years. And It was. Slay it yet be possible to do long rango weather forecasting on the earth by studying tho waxing and -waning of tho Ice-cap on tho South Polo ot Mare? "Perhaps our most graphic picture of tho solar system Is given by Herschel. Imagine a circular field two and a half miles In diameter: place a library globe two feet In diameter in tho very center; 82 feet away put a mustard seed. The globo will represent tho sun and the mus tard seed Slorcury. "At a dlstanco of 142 feet placo a pea, and another at 215 feet. Theso will rep resent Venus and tho earth, both aa to size and distance. A rather largo pin head at a dlstanco of 327 feet will speak; for Stars, and a fair-sized tangerine a quarter of a mllo distant will stand for Jupiter. A small lemon at two-fifths of a mllo will play tho rolo of Saturn, a large cherry three-fourths 'of a mllo dis tant will answer for Uranus, and a fair sized plum nt tho very edge of the field will proclaim Neptune. Eighty moons would bo required to make one earth. A player there could throw a ball eix times, as far as It can be thrown on American diamonds. A man weighing 150 pounds thero would weigh 900 on the earth. The earth re eclves as much light and heat from the) sun In 13 seconds as it gets from the moon In a whole year."
