Yos, but that Is only ono shipment The steam ship Goa preceded tho Lako Frumet and unloadod 30,000 bogs of cocoa boan for tho Bamo company recently, at a similar valuation of $750,000. This gives somo Idea uf the tremendous growth of the chocolate and cocoa busi ness Industry of the United States, and particularly of tho growth of tho Mass achusetts Chocolate company, which now ranks third amongst all the chocolate manufacturers of tho United States. HISTORY OF THE INDUSTRY Chocolate and cocoa have come Into their o.vn In America. Tho growth of the Industry has beenand will continue to be on an enormous scale. Twenty-six yoara ago, or In 1900, there was a total of 36,000,000 pounds of chocolato and cocoa consumed by the American people. Evidently they found this very pleas ing, for 10 years later wo find thorn buy ing MO.ooo.WJ pounds a yoar. Last year tho consumption of chocolate and cocoa reached tho enormous total of 286,000,000 pounds or over two pounds to every man, woman and child In tho United States. "Tho Increase In tho consumption of chocolate and cocoa," said John Walker, managing director of tho Massachusetts Chocolate company, and ono of tho best Informed men on this Industry In the United States, "is due to three things: "First There has been a steady Im provement In the quality of the raw prod uct by tho planters In the growing coun tries. "Second Experience and skill combined with research has so developed the qual ity of chocolato and cocoa manufactur ed In this country that It Is an equal If not superior to any made in the world. "The World war probably had more to do with the bringing home to the peo ple tho valuo of chocolate and cocoa as a food than could havo been done with $100,000,000 worth of advertising. It es tablished cocoa and sweetened chocolate at tho head of all other foods as an emer gency ration, and was adopted as such by all the armies and navies In tho world." "Do you not credit prohibition with In- creuso In the use of chocolate?" Mr. Walker was asked. 'Yob, Indeed," he said. "It would place that as the third reason for the Increase In the business, and I believe that pro hibition will continue to old all high grade chocolate and cocoa, so that we can expect the same Increase for tho next 50 years as we have during the past 50. "Fifty years ago there was only one manufacturer of chocolate In tho United States of any elzc. and even abroad the use of chocolate and cocoa was oxtrcmely limited. "To-day It is outstripping all other bev erages. I know of no other beverage which combines tho qualities of nourish ment and helpful food digestion as does cocoa and In this all dietitians agree- so that It is only natural to expect great Increases In tho Industry." BOSTON PLAYS BIO PART IN INDUSTRY Tho history of the Massachusetts Choc olate company, of which Mr. Walker Is head, gives an Interesting Insight Into tho Improvements of Its Industry and also the largo part that Boston plays in sup plying tho refit of tho United States with this much-wanted product. Tho Massachusetts Chocolate company and Its subsidiary the Vermont Milk Chocolato company during the year 1913 Just eight years from the tlmo they start ed manufacturing marketed moro than 71,000,000 pounds of chocolate. This Is better than 25 per cent, of tho total consumption In the United States. During the war, especially In the yoara 1918 and 1919, American manufacturers ex ported very large quantities of choco late and cocoa to foreign countries, es timated at moro than 60 per cent, of tho total amount manufactured In this country, but as Mr. Wulkor pointed out tho drop In exchange, had reduced the export on these products to a vanishing point. Notwithstanding this the chocolato nnd cocoa output by the Massachusetts Chocolate company for tho first quarter of 1920 would equal If not exceed tho flmt quarter of 1919. The Massachusetts Chocolato company did Its share In supplying the boys at the front with chocolato to bo used as an emergency ration, and also for drinking purposes and for this they received ci tatlon from the government for tho nfll clent way In which they handled tho business, and also for the fine quality of their product. During tho year 1919 the Massachusetts Chocolate company, and Its subsidiary tho Vermont Milk Chocolato company- which manufactures nothing but Wan Eta products, together consumed a total of 41,000,000 pounds of cocoa beans. The value of Its sales In 1911 wan $211, 000, while last year the sales totaled tho splendid sum of $19,000,000. The Massachusetts Chocolate company was Incorporated In 1910 under the laws of Massachusetts to manufacture choc olate, cocoa and cocoa butter for manu facturlng purposes, as well as to put out a full lino of eating and drinking choc olate. Particular attention has been given to tho development of highest grado of milk and nut chocolate. To distinguish their chocolato from others they adopted an Indian girl In a circle with the word "Wan-Eta" as a trademark. From the first offering to tho trade. which was mado late In 1911. their prod ucts have received very favorable at tention, nnd from that tlmo on tho growth of Wan-Eta chocolate and cocoa has been continuous. The hlgheft quality of the product and tho demand of the Amerl can public for moro and more chocolate has made them successfully meet com petition until to-day they aro occupying an envied position ns ono of tho threo largest manufacturers in tho United States. They havo long-time agreements to furnish all the chocolato coatings and other chocolato products used In the con fectionery business to several ot the lead ing manufacturers of confectionery In tho United States. They havo an efficient selling organiza tion to promoto and sell all their products In all foreign countries. The trademark "Wan-Eta" Is registered in all Important foreign countries. Im portant patents on machinery for tho manufacture of cocoa havo been allowed and aro In forco In all countries of Importance. Frederick H. Babbitt, candidate for the republican nomination for governor. Is spending a few days at tho Hotel Ver mont. AVhcn Interviewed by a Free Press man yesterday regarding the Volstead act, Mr. Babbitt said: Thcro Is unquestionably among our peoplo a feeling of dissatisfaction over the unnecessarily drastic wording of the Volstead act and Its all too harsh Inter pretation of tho eighteenth amendment to the Federal Constitution. Tho Inde pendent spirit of Ethan Allen, evor present among our grcon hills, Is a vital force In the rugged character of our citizenship and our people bellovft that changes In the constitution should only bo made by popular will. Future Legisla tures will glvo heed to this demand. Ver monters realize, notwithstanding tho iigltatlon now going on In ono or two of our State papers, that tho only way the 'Volstead' act can bo 'humanized' Is by congressional action, and not through nny action by tho governor or tne Legislature, but popular sentiment, seek ing an opportunity to express Itself re garding tho Volstead act, is Insistent that the several candidates for governor make their position on this matter perfectly clear. 'The people of Vermont have alwaya deserved and maintained the reputation of law-abiding citizens, steadfast and In dependent, confident of their own capacity to manage their own business and settle their domestic concerns with out outside dictation upon the principles ot law and order, recognizing tho duty of obedience to State legislation, repre senting tho popular will and consent of Vermont. Tho purpose of our laws has beon tho promotion and security of tho physical. Intellectual and moral welfare of tho community, and this purpose has been successfully accomplished by our statutes, enacted by tho General As sembly of our .State. Wo belong to the Union, and tho Federal Constitution Is tho supreme law, and Its precepts must bo obeyed. Laws framed under It must bo enforced. Experience, howover. Justi fies tho conviction that If congressional acts, llko tho Volstead act, become offensive to tho majority and are un necessarily harsh, that fact will be dem onstrated by their Impartial and ln dlscrlmlnatlng enforcement, and when so demonstrated, all euch enactments will bo amended or repealed because not sus tained by the consent of the governed, I and therefore inconsistent with and subverslvo of republican and democratic Institutions. It will bo my constant effort I to execute tho office of governor. If chosen to that position, so as to maintain law and order, and encourago and foster temperance. Industry and Independence among our people." Oppooen 18th Amendment nnd Volstead Act For Scientific Road I.nTF and Shorter Lesrlnlnttrc Sessions urged co-operation among tho new of ficers and directors In Increasing tho efficiency of the association locally with out the addition of now equipment. E. E. Ebersole, from tho headquarters office, outlined the overseas program which the International branch of the "Y," of which he Is secretary. Is plan ning. Ho said that the work of the Y. M. C. A. In Europo by no means ceased with the signing of tho armistice, and It Is felt by Dr. John R. Mott and the other leaders of tho movement, that the "Y" ha even a greater work to do there now than was the case during the war. Thirteen different nations are now calling for the Y. M. C. to carry on Its work within their borders, feel ing that the "Y," better than any other agency can bring about a stabilizing Influence, During tho war porlod, the Army Y, M. C. A. recruited 20,000 workers anJ served 4,800,000 men. A large number of "Y" workers are still engaged over s?as, working with tho 16,000 men of the United States Army In Germany; with the French armies of a million men still mobilized; with the Italians In tho armies and student centers; with the Poles who are fighting In rags and barefooted to keop Bolshevism out of Europe; with tho Czecho-Slovaks, who havo thorugh all their troubles kept alive tho faith which their an cestor John Huss, propogated; with tho Greeks, 80 of whose young men are assisting seven "Y" secretaries to keep up the morale of tho Greek army In 14 huts; with the Roumanians, assisted by the queen of that country, who has hacked tho "Y" work from the- flrBt; and with the Russians, who need this stabilizing Influence most of all. Lieutenant-Governor Stone spoke very briefly of his experience overscan last year unler the "Y" banner, and said that he thought the Y. M. C. A. had nothing for which to apologize for Its work during the war. GOV. COOLIDGE SIGNS DAYLIGHT SAVING BILL Boston, April 9. The daylight savings bill was signed by Governor Coolldgo to day.

FIIEE PRESS WANT AOS PAY BEST VANDALISM IN CEMETERY Old Milton Burying- Ground Despoil ed by Iloys Ilendatnnen Broken nnd Torn Down Milton, April 17. The vlllago cemetery, ono of tho most beautiful small ceme teries In the State, was badly wrecked one day last week by school boys, and to-day scores of people have visited the place and aro shocked to sec the sad sight. Forty-five monuments and head stones, or parts of them, llo flat, torn from the basos pr tipped over. This does not Include small unidentified mark ers, or a number of others that have been put back Into place. It is reported there wefe several eye witnesses of the vandalism. Tho cemetery Is situated on tho main street, a short dlstanco from the rail road station, and llko old graveyards In England and Scotland Is near tho churches, a fact often mentioned by visitors. What motives back of tho boys' pro fano work, tho boldness of the daylight Job, is not known. It looks most like the work of an Insano person. Lots where vases held Easter memorial flow ers are now covered with tho broken bits of smashed vases, flags left on the sol diers' graves aro pullod up, largo urns tipped over. The greatest damage was In tho old part of tho cemetery opposite J. E. Wag ner's store, where marble fdahs erected 75 years ago aro torn from tho founda tions. Nearer tho fountain two largo slab markers on the Irish lot are broken In two. The culprits did not conflno their work to any particular part of tho cemetery, but everywhero Is wreckage. The oxpense of restoring old stones, picking up glass, etc., will cost between $100 and $200. Persons throughout tho country who own lots In this cemetery need not worry, for the Milton Cemetery association Is fully alive to the situation, and all will be righted In time, so that this sacred yard may be kept In tho future as qulot and poaceful aa It has been In tho last century.
