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.
New York, April 12. Passengers on an
elevated train had remarkable escapes
from death to-day when they were
catapulated to tho street, a dlstanco of
23 feet In tho midst of debris of tho car
In which they were riding to work.
The front car of a train was knocked
off tho elevated structure on the Ninth
avenuo lino near Trinity Church by a
collision with another train and demol
ished. The wreckage was wedged In be
tween tho elevated structure and tho
side ot tho brick building, a dozen feet
The IS people In tho demolished car
sifted through debris to tho street nnd
about a dozen of them wcro removed to
hospitals, tho only woman passenger in
the car being seriously hurt. Tho motor
man was missing nfter tho accldont nnd
search of the debris failed to reveal trace
of him.
Public Service Commissioner Nixon an
nounced to-night that an Investigation of
the mechanical equipmont of tho wrecked

Washington, April D. Thousands of
desertions In the navy In the last year
havo brought conditions unparallolcd

bureau of navigation, to-day told the
Senato investigating committee. The
whole naval service, he warned, Is
threatened with disaster unless Con
gress Immediately enacts legislation
rasing tho pay of officers and men to
a point that will allow tho navy to
compete with civil occupations.
Thero were 4,GGi desertions In tho
Inst six months of 1919 Rear Admiral
Washington declared, an.l thus far this
year they have averaged around 700
a month, mnny of the deserters bo

ho said, recruits cannot bo obtained.
Washington, April 14. President Wil

Boston, April 11. 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
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

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.
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,
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.
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. Compilation

Sending wireless messages to Stars .nd
Venus, and tho pofslblllty of projecting
a rocket to the moon, are subjects of re
cent speculation which have excited keen
or Interest In our solar system.
"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
