Including politics, religion, daylight saving, tariff, prohibition and so on, there Is ono thing on -which nearly everybody le united the fight against the high cost of living. It is undoubtedly true that any practical solution of this problem, which Is troubling everybody lust now, would bo welcomed by the great rank and file of the people. If the people of Chittenden county should be offered the chance to weaken tho hold of the high cost of living, would theyJ, do It? We think that there Is only one (tnswer to that question, and we believe that they are going to mako use of the opportunity which Is going to be offered them within a few days. This opportunity comes In the form of a plan of co-operation with the Chitten den County Farm Bureau, which is con templating an addition to the agricultural strength of the county a boys' and girls' club leader, who will take full charge of the agricultural projects among the young people of the county. It is estimated by the Stato leader of Boys' and Girls' club work, K. Li. Ingalls, of the University of Vermont Kxtenslon Service, that fully r.,0f)0 boys and girls in Chittenden county can be reached and taught up-to-date methods of gardening, pig-raising, poultry-raising, calf-raising, and many other things in connection with agriculture which will help to increase the food pro duction of the county. Tills work can be done, 'however, only under the direction of a trained super visor who can give full time to the work. In order that the child should learn to do the work right and come to like It. there should be a continued following up of the work, and keeping of records show ing what has been accomplished under certain conditions, and this is why su pervision Is necessary. The supervisor also empha.vlzes the importance of own ership and partnership In homo work o (hat the child is taught to have pride in his own accomplishments. This develops future, farmers for the country, and the best kind of farmers. Several counties in tho State already have leaders in boys' and girls' club work, working with the county agents and home demonstration agents, and the work among the boys and girls is proving very suc cessful. It is really among these young people that the drive for greater produc tion, and thus for decreased living ex penses, must be centered, for in the young people is the hope of the future mm "in-cuon. ii jney can ne kept on the land, raising food, the food produc tion program can be carried out, but if they are. not taught to love agriculture, the country will surely suffer, for then the. young people are sure to leave the farms as soon af they grow up. Chittenden county already has a good number of active boy and girl workers, but it is not doing as well aw some other counties, especially some of those in which club leaders are now working. But Uie possibilities in Chittenden .country are fully as great as In any county in the State. There are now four Boys' and Girls' clubs in the county, with nn enrollment of about fifty members. These include two Girls' Sewing clubs in Richmond, one Pig club In West Bolton and a Toultry club in Burlington. But there, are a largo num ber of young peoplo not organized' into into clubs who arc working In oo. operation with their projects, which include home these young people whom a club leader in the county would reach and help along with their projects, wheih include home gardens, canning, pigs, poultry, potatoes, calves, corn, lambs, sewing, "cooking, handicraft, maple sugar making, general farm work, and other things along this line. The work of the club leaders is carried on mostly with young proplc between tne ages of 10 and 13 years of ago, T)ur Ing the very few years that the work ha.s been going on In Vermont, and with very s few leaders, groat things have been ac complishcd, and if the boys mid girls are given half a chance, they will, un doubtedly, make the older agriculturists of the Stato sit up and Aoticc. Here aro some of the chief alms of the Boys' and Girls' club work in Vermont: To develop agriculture, and rural and home . life; to Interest boys and girls in farm and homo and community programs, and through them their fathers and mothers; to train them In better methods of farm and homo practices; to assist them In demonstrating thest practice for the ben efit of others; to encourage them through property ownership and partnership In a stronger belief in rural life and the business of agriculturo; to create In them the systematic, training In agriculturo and home making In school mid in college; to develop in them rural f leadership, com munity co-operation and tho spirit of citizenship, thus Improving the rural and t Bocial life of the future. Is not this a program worth backing Alnmnl Tiny Ills: l.trnt of tlrlgliam Academy Commencement Alumni day on Wednesday June IS which focused the Interest of the loth anni versary commencement nt Mrlgham Acad emy marked a forward step on the part of the Alumni association to keep the academy In the front rank of college preparatory schools.

Woodbury, the tax rate was fixed for the year 1920 at $2.70 for every dollar on the grand list. Tho resolu tions fixing this amount were passed without a dissenting vote, and the hudget for next year, which was ndopted, calls for an expenditure of $880,547. The board had considerable difficulty In getting together. While all of the alder men signed the call, only sK reported In addition to Acting .Mayor Woodbury, who while acting as maj-or cannot function an an alderman. Those who were present were Aldermen SIcBrlde, Be.echcr, Deyette, Hanbridge, Patrick and Wilson. Things dragged nlpng and It didn't look as though a meeting' could be held but ahout nine o'clock Alderman Beechcr, who had 1 been Bhsent for somo time, appeared on I the scene with Dr. J. E. LaRbcque, who made up a quorum. Alderman Patrick was elected chair man of tho board and business was done rapidly, once It got under way. The re-, port of tho board of finance was read and adopted. L. C. Grant and Acting Slayor Woodbury were on hand to explain the different Items. Sfany of Uicse are fixed and allow of no alterations, but the others wero discussed item by Item and no changes made. The expenditures are about flOO-OW lavgor than they were a year ago, cx eluivc of the Increase In teachers' salaries. The pauper department has been' In creased from ?1S,000 to ?21,000, the police from J28.0O0 to $31,000, the lire from tfS.ooo to 48,700, the health from ?6.000 to J6.500, the incidental fund from J19.000 to $21,000, parks from $-1,300 to $6,500, public buildings from $1,000 to $5,000, and minor changes made in some of the other appropriations. Thcro was nn dissenting vote when it came to adopting the report It was stated by the board of finance that a tax of $2.66 would raise the amount required to operate the city according to the appropriations. As all of tho taxes are never collected because of people being listed who cannot be located and for many other reasons. It was decided that a tax of $2.70 would be required. The question as to whether the board had the right to fix the rate of taxation at more than $2 was brought up and an opinion bv Judge Seneca Hasclton read on tho subject. Judge Hasclton claims 1 that thcro is no doubt but that the $2 tax lean be raised in addition to the other taxes, and for that reason separate resolu tions were Introduced raising money for the different purposes. There ate the $2 municipal tax, 15 cent school tax, 40 cent , State tax. five cent highway tax and ten ; cent school tax. inc i. cem wuuui is that voted at the last election. Judge Haselton's opinion on the matter of vot ing the. tax rate follows: JUDGE HASELTON'S OPINION Hon. C. L. Woodbury, President of the Board of Aldermen. Dear Sir: You inquire as to whether, in addition to the tax which the City Council is authorized to assess for city purposes, the council may assess a fur ther tax to meet the requirements of the State tax for the support of govern ment, the State highway tax, the State school tax and the county tax. In answer to this Inquiry I give the fol lowing opinion: Taxes for general State purposes, taxes for county purposes, and taxes for city or municipal purposes arc necessarily and obviously distinguishable. The laws of tho State distinguish them one from an other. Section 88 of the City Charter provides. among other things, that the City Coun cil shall annually assess upon the. grand list of the city a fax sufficient to pay all State and county taxes. Section 89 of the City Charter provides further that the City Council may an nually assess upon the grand list of the city "a tax for city purposes which f-hall not exceed two hundred cents upon the dollar'' of the grand list; and this section provides that the City Council may assess a larger sum for rity purposes when authorized so to do by tho legal voters of the city in a meeting duly warned for that purpose. I am clearly of opinion that the City Council has authority annually to aess a tax sufficient to meet the requirements of: fl) The State tax; (2) the State high way lax: (3) the State school tax; (1) a tax for city purposes at a rate not ex cluding two hundred cents on the dollar; i5) an aMditional tax for city purposes to a-u extent legally authorized by the legal voters nf tho c!Jy in a city meeting duly warned ;und held. Tho le.nguagu of the charter granted us by the Legislature teems very' plain. The State will take In direct taxes what it needs or requires, and will use the city ( a an Instrumentality for flic collection of the amount required of the city; but it was never meant that an increase in State taxes should curtail the right and power of the city to meet Us nwn local needs as a municipal corporation. In view or tho hu;n htatn tax which recent conditions have rendered necessary, we ran readily conceive of circumstaccs In which the State for Its own purposes would require such a levy, that the. municipal government could not get on, unlws Its authority to tax for city pur poses Is Independent of, and In addition to, its duty to meet tho demands of the State government. Happily, tho law per mits of no ambiguity. The, State lax must bo paid when legally required (Acts of 1919, No, :,2. Sec. 2) and If there, are not sufficient funds In the treasury to pay such tax tho City Conn- ' ell may borrow the necessary amount 1 rather than permit an extent to be Issued ' against the inhabitant of the city for the non-payment of the State tax. (See Acts of 1919, No, r,2. Sec. 4, and tho Gen eral Iiws, Sees. 921, 922.) But borrowing Is a temporary measure Intended to give, the municipality an opportunity to raise . the required State tax In ono of two methods pointed out in Section 2 of No. 52 of the Acts of 1919 already referred to. To summarize and precisely answer your question, the right of the City Council to assess a tax if two hundred cents on t'ho dollar of the grand list (and more If authorized by tho legal voters) for city purposes is not affoctcd by tho require monts of the State tax, tho Stato high way tax, the Stato school tax and tho county tax. The maximum rate of taxa tion for city purposes, 200 cents on the. dollar of tho grand list (or more if duly authorized by the logal voters), Is a rate that may he assessed In addition to tho assessment required to meet tho city's proportion of tho Stato tax, tho Stato highway tax, tho Stato school tax ami tho county tax. It la to be presumed that the City Council, In tlip assessment of a tax for city purposes, will fix a rate as far below the authorized maximum rate for Biich purposes as the due administration of the city's affairs will permit.
