Lucky Escape fiom Serious
Accident on Lake
' A remarkable escape from a dan
gerous situation was made by Char
les Moore and a party of friends in
his powerful gasoline launch,
"Mountain Maid" on Thursday night
when the craft was struck by another
boat ori Lake Memphremagog nearly
opposite the boy.s camp managed by
Harry Dune.
The launch was traveling along at
a moderate speed with Mr. Moore at
the wheel. Another boat, traveling
more swiftly, approached the
"Mountain Maid" from the right and
attempted to cross her bows. VVlien
the boats carne rathcr dose togethei,
Mi. Moore realized thata collision
was iinminent and swung his launch
to the left.
A Noyes boy, the operator of the
other craft, which belonged to his
fathei, Clarence E. Noyes of Broad
view Fann, was not payin- strict at
tention to the guiding of the boat,
and hes truck the "Mountain, Maid"
forward on the right side, making
quite a hole. Fortunately, the
people in the Moore boat had pres
ence of mind enough to stay on the
left side, raising the hole out of
water, and in that manner it was
driven straight to shore. It was by
this means alone that they avoided
sinking in the middle of the lake.
The boat was left on the shore and
the return to Newport was made by
other means.
The broken boat carne back to its
boathouse l:iter on, and carpenters
have been at work on it for a counlc
of days and have succeeded in tles
troying ali traces of damage. The
Noyes boat suffered a splintered bow,
but no leaks or other damage result
ed. Operators of motor boats on Lake
Memphremogop complain of the
canoes which travel without any
lìghts and making no noise. t is
remarkable, they say, that more col
lisions do not occur between motoa'
boats and canoes, and several cloSe
shaves have bee,n noted recently at
this end of the lake.

fine cookintr has saved manv a lad of
this outfit from being homesick.
"Seconds" is a very familiar word at
mess time and no one is allowed to

hire Pete t(T cook for them.
"Pete" is assisted by the best nat

would suggest,' however, that you
send them direct to Company D so
that we will get hem quicker.

Four games are. on the schedule
for the Fairbanks A. A. team of St.
Johnsbury during the coming week.
On Wednesday the team piays in
Groveton, N. IL, and on Saturday
tours to Sherbrooke, Que., for a re
turn game with the strong team of
that city. The games between the two
teams now stands two to one in fa
vor of St. Johnsbury. It is expected
that a biir crowd will go' to Shei--brooke
Saturday for this game.
The team will spend Sundav and
Monday at Three Rivers, Que., play
inw a game with the team of that
town on Sunday and Monday.
Manager Hoernle of the Fairbanks
team has given the Caledonian-Re-cord
an explanation of the cancelling
of the game with Woodsville, last
Saturday. 'TVt 2.30 o clock wiren u i
was necessary to makeji decision in
regard to holding the game, it was
raining hard after there had been al
inosi continuous showers throughout
the day. Manager Hornle called the
Woodsville team on the elione and
called the game off.
Half an hour later the sun carne
out clear and warm and it looked Hke
an ideal afternoon. He called
Woodsville again and it was agreed
that the team would come to St.
Johnsbury and announcement was
made that the game would be at 4.30
o'clock. Before that time it clouded
ut) again and looked like rain. When
the team was just about to leave
for the Campus the Woodsville
management called on the nhone and
said tìiey were unable to get autos
and get their players together and
that they would have to cali the
game off.
This series of disappointments was
no reflection whatsoever upon the
management of either team. Mr.
Hoernle did the best he could to have
the game played as scheduled and the
Woodsville management did likewise.
It is honed that these two strong
teams will be able to arrange another
game at an early date.

But Com. Appointed to In
vestigale and Report at
March Meeting
At the special town meeting in the
Town Hall, Saturdav afternoon the
proposition to instai medicai inspec
tion in the public schools in St.
Johnsbury M the beginnini? of the
fall term was deteated, it having
been announced that such a vote
must be taken at the, annual town
meeting. Following the vote Ar
thur R. Brooks moved that a commit
tee be appointed to investigate the
matter and report at the next annu
al town meeting. David E. Porter,
the moderator, appointed James Cos
groye, Charles W. Ruiter' and Mrs.
Walter P. Smith on this committee.
There were a good number of
womeo at the meeting and their re
marks were very pertinent. , The
men wanted to be "shown" and Dr.
Alice E." Wakefield in particular, as
well as several other ladies, explain- i
ea wnai meaicai ìnspecuon nau ac
complished elsewhere and what it
might do if adopted in St. Johnsbury.
immediately after the reading of
the cali, Miss Kate Wakefield moved
that the article for medicai inspec
tion in-'our public schools be adopt
ed and the motion was seconded by
Mrs. George F. Cheney.
J. H. Brooks said he wanted in
formation on the subject and Lyndon
Arnold said that at a recent town
meeting when he happened t be -fiit-ting
by the side of the Iute Dr. Ben
ed,ict the subject carne un and Di.
Benedici told him it was a fraud.
E. G. Asselin remarked that he did
not see a great many mothers pres
ent and he wondered if the mothers
were not interested in the health of
their children. This brought a re
joinder from one of the ladies pves
éftr whò asked ff the fathers were;
not as deeply interested in the health
of their children as the mothers.
Dr. Wakefield then took the floor
and made a strong plea for the pian.
She said Vermont had the highest
death rate among little chiklren un
riér five years of age of any state in
the country and that medicai inspec
tion was( now in, force in 150 towns

sponsibility deprivine the little chil
dren of medicai inspection. She be
lioveH the voters oueht to cet to-
gether with the school directprs and
givo the pian a fair trial.
A letter was read from Dr. Genge,
the public health officer, stating how
medicai inspection was carried out
after which Mrs. Arthur F. Stone
said she snoke in behalf of one of
the mothers that had a child in the
public schools and urged the passale
of the resolution. 'She' also quoted
the statement of a lady recently in
town from a western state who said
that since medicai inspection had
been adopted in their public schools
there had been no contagious dis
eases. Js4mes Cosgrove said he was ìm
pressed with the sincerity of Dr.
Wakefield, but he carne to the meet
ing with an open mind and believed
much good would be accomplished in
dis'cUssion. He wanted to know if
medicai inspection was compulsory
and the moderator informed him that
the child could not be examined if
the parents objected, except in case
of contagious diseases. Mr. Cos
gorve said he thought the proposition
was centralizine power in the hands
of the state and such a nolicy if car
ried too far might lead to serious
consequences. )
Edgar R. Bròwn made a strong
speech in favor of thè pian, saying

Autos Floated Away In Streets By
Cloudburst Which Tore Up
City Pavements
(By the Associated-Press)
TOLEDO, Ohio, Aug. 1G Damage estimated at
$5,000,00Q was done here today by a severe rain storm
which floated away great stretches of city paving, flooded
cellars and paralized traffic. It was one of the most
severe storms that ever struck the city and district.
Rain swept through the stratta ' ,
during the hours when crowds were i .
trying to make their way to work.
Automobiles parked at curbs either
were floated away or stood with their
floors flooded. Reports of storm
damage from neighboring points have:
not been received as telephone service
was temporarily handicapped and.,
electric cars ran with difìiculty.
. City authorities estimated the dam
age to wrecked pavements to be clost:
of $200,000. A number of streets are 1
out of commission, the block surfacing
on one Street floating into the lobby
of an office building. Damage was'
heavy to buildings, one collapsing.
From ali parts of the city dutress
calls are being received. Several per-
sons were in clanger oi urowruii
wnen they fell into the water when
attempting to cross the Street.
BOSTON, Mass., Aug. 1G Efforts
to turn back to their- source the
stream of dollars that flowed in mil
lions into Charles Ponzi's tempest
ous financial sea' occupied the at-
tention of federai and state officiala
today when they resumed their du
ties after a week-end re'snite. The
probe into every ramification of the
young Italian financi'er's activities
was continued but with the asfcurance
of investigatin- officials that further
damage to the financial fabric of
New England was unlikely.
Ponzi's counsel centered their ef
forts today on attempts to procuVe
the $25,000 bail necessary to effect
the release of their client from the
E-ast Cambridge jail where he aeld-i
by the federai government on a
charge of using the mails to defraud.
1 The Attorney General's office fig
ured the Ponzi liabilities, as shown
by unpaid notes, of .which records
have been made thus far at
$2,100,000. In addition, the office
has 1000 lettera the contente of
which have not been tabulated but
which "are estirYiated,,uouVh1" ' to comJ
prise $500,000 additional in notes.
The largest single unpaid note was
for $10,000 but a former note holder
told the Attorney General that ho
had invested $30,000 with Ponzi in
one note which had later been paid.
LONDON, Aug. 1G Premier
Lloyd George, replying to a question
