Barre, East Barre and Montpelier Red
Men are planning to hold a joint meet
ing at Montpelier late in January the
program to be conducted along the lines
of the Red Men's pow-wow held in Barre
last year, when more than 150 members
of the improved order came together for
a banquet, after-dinner exercises, enter
tainment and ceremonial work. A com
mittee from Iroquois tribe of BarTe, Wu
chosen tribe of East Barre and Sioux
tribe of Montpelier is making elaborate
preparations for the event. It is now
expected that several of the state officers
will dignify the occasion. Moreover,
there is a possibility that the grand
sachem of America, who lives in Con
necticut, will also be able to attend.

planning to entertain is Frederick E.
Marshall of Beecher Falls, Canaan, who
is the grand sachem of the Improved

authority that the larger quarries are
now employing union men, whose de
mands in the main have been met. Some
of the smaller quarries are employing
unskilled men recruited in Chicago," but
the results are far from satisfactory and
there is every indication that the own
ers will fall in line by spring. Aside
from the labor difficulties at Red Gran
ite, there are few if any labor troubles
to be adjusted in the association just
