The international yacht race may be considered a case of lingering sweetness king drawn out. Los Angeles knows it's time to get up when the earth begins to shake. Nothing like an earthquake for an alarm clock. 1 A "Florence sextet girl has married a real farmer out in Iowa, thereby set ting a new fashion for the great mul titude of the "sextet." Judging by the unusually large num ber of touring cars from other states in Barre and passing through Barre, Vermont is being discovered by a great many people throughout the country. The cars come from points at the ex treme ends of the country. Lately a candidate for the presiden tial nomination, Nicholas Murray But ler of Columbia university is now seek ing the nomination for governor of Xew York. The suspicion grows strong er that President Butler has simply got th itch for office, no matter what the office may be. "Tha cause of the accident is not know$, but it is thought that some thing' went wrong with the steering gear of the car." A good many thing ara charged up to faulty steering gear, and oftentimes the charge is rightly brought. The steering gear is. some thing that needs overhauling most fre quently and rarely gets it. Gov. Coolidge paid an honest tribute to his running-mate, Warren G. Hard ing, during his speech accepting the Re publican nomination for vice-president. The tribute was neither fulsome flat tery nor uncalled for frills; it was meTely a plain, cold statement of an appraisal of the man. Those who are looking for an honest sizing up of the Republican nominee for president can find it in Coolidge's words. The political steam-roller is a won derfully mobile machine considering ita supposed crushing power. Now 'it is a St. Johnsburyman, Dr. J. D. Bachand, who claims to be a candidate for state senator after giving the Republican party "the best there is in me" for eight years. Dr. Bachand should not be discouraged; there are others who have worked a lifetime for the Republi can, party ami never have been reward ed with office yet. The "trunk murder" uncovered in New York City has developed an un usually large number of missing young women in every part of the country, the disappearance of whom had prob ably been kept a secret until the dis covery of the woman's body in a trunk aroused the anxiety of many parents and caused them to go to the police and to the newspaper for information. If the anxiety tlms aroused results in the restoration of' some of these young women to theirl homes there will be one good side to am otherwise evil thing. (Frank C. Arrhibnld of Manchester ha announced that he will be a candi date again for attorney general of Ver mont, being' on the Republican side of the political fence, of course. Attor ney General Archibald has done good service in the two years h has served in that rapacity and is, under the usual order, entitled to one other term with out ferious hindrance. In one line of activity he has been unusually busy, having been the chief prosecuting offi cer in she homicide rases besides hav ing much other criminal pronecutioa t look after. r'airlt authoritative word come from Middlebury that Pres. Thomas of Miildlebury college is not in politics at tlie present time, so the rumor that he mij:ht -nntet the seat of Congress man Frank L. Greene i effectually qtiefched. Tres. Thomas is about to launch a campaign for a million dollar rnciowrnent for hi inMitution and this, one w inclined to believe, will be suffi cient to keep him away from politics for a conidera!l period. He i do ing a f! ne wi.rk e b"i of the college at Middlebury and it would be unfor tunate for the ir.t itutiou were he to trnfer bi influence to some other field at this time.

Rogers & Company a good idea for Pres. Wilson to pro mote somebody already in the navy department, for there surely must be some good men available. The interpretation of the law regard ing the manufacture and use of cider and fruit juices, as presented by Col lector of Internal Revenue J. E. Ken nedy of Burlington, is somewhat more liberal than some people have been led to believe recently from political ut terances. However, it is evident that the dealers in sweet cider will have to "turn over their stock" in rather quick succession in order to coma inside the one -half of one per cent limit of al cohol content. SOVIET RUSSIA GETS RECOG- . NITIOX. Through the request for an armistice in behalf -of harrassed Poland, the al lies (or some of them) have moat cer tainly given recognition to the soviet government in Russia. They may not have recognized the government itself but they have given recognition to the fact that a government exists, which amounts to the same thing. Hereafter the soviet government of Russia is likely to gain in prestige until it be comes an established government of the world, for the other countries are quite likely to follow the example set by some of the leading governments of the allied circle. Latterly there have been some indications that the soviet control was getting established with considerable strength in the absence of any marked power in opposition and that there was a disposition toward greater moderation than in the days immediately following the overthrow of the Kerensky government. It must have made marked progress, eUe it would not hava been able to maintain such a powerful offensive as that Poland which was brought to a halt through a plea for an armistice. r CURRENT COMMENT i Path to Reform. Dr. Talcott William, one of Ameri ca's prominent publicists, in an address before the summer sehool for teachers at the University of Vermont, took "Path to Reform" a a subject. The press gives a resume of his address which' show h believe the proper path to reform i through the educa tion of the youth. He related an inci dent that i of interest. Thirty-eight year ago while he was editor of the Philadelphia Press three women asked him to support a move ment to have the bad effects of alcohol and tobacco incorporated in the study of physiology in tha public schools. The proposition was opposed by the expert of the time with the age-old arguments againt all reform. The plan was finally adopted and in twelve or fifteen year the boya who had been instructed in the lines become the oter of the country that begun a regulation of the liquor traffic. This great body of educated Americana con tinued to place restrictions on the traf fie and in about thirty-seen years after the matter was fir.t agitated the country ha a national prohibitory law. Thia brief story may be discourag ing to ardent adorate of reform b catie it shows how slowly great re forms are brought about. But it hows the widora of the reformer of that day in making the public arHooJa rt prHeand. Agaiet the appetite c-f million cf nwrs cf intoi tea tins liquors and the ged of hundred of thousand of dealer and manufactur er cf liquor in set the e4irate4 in tellect of the child and the chili's in telJect wn. In the fi jrht fint the l-qunr il. only half of the educated ch.ldren came into reeio cf the vote. ws beirg witVmt the halV.t dtinttc all thee yr. Now tbt otnen are ahoct to he gnea the ttalV r the power of the school in reform will be doubled. That may make reform more speedy than it has been but the greater reforms cannot be accomplished in too-short periods. The greater pos sibilities of 'the public school, however, make it more important than ever that its instruction shall be in the line of better citizenship. Brattleboro Re former, v- , Clement's Opinion. Governor Clement is justified, if he has reason honestly and sincerely to believe that his position is correct on constitutional grounds, in not calling a special session to consider auffrage. It would lend a great deal of strength to his contention, however, If he were to cite an opinion from the attorney general of the state, the legal expert to whom officials have the right to sub mit such questions, or from other recognized authorities, in support there of. In the absence of such supporting opinion, there will remain a popular belief that the grounds taken are un warranted, even specious. For an exec utive not himself a lawyer or with legal training, to sit in judgment on a fine question like this, where his action has such far-reaching results, and to announce a decision without quoting a single authority is assuming a great deal, it seems to us.Randolph Her ald and News. W1LLIAMSTOWN LANDING FIELD FOR BARRE. Part of Wilson Farm in Barre Town Has Been Selected. A permanent landing field for air craft will be established for Barre be fore Augvit 30, the aviation committee of the Barre board of trade has Hecid ed, and this field will be at the Wilson farm on the Websterville road, a dis tance of two and a third mile from Barre's postoffice by automobile. From the center of Graniteville the distance by road is about a mile and from Web sterville probably slightly less than a mile. The field, except for its distance from Barre, is apparently ideal for such a purpose and offers a large tract of level, grassed land, which, ac cording to the drawings of George S. DeMerell, is approximately 2,500 feet long and 1,200 feet wide. Mr. DeMerell presented these plans to the commit tee Saturday afternoon, F. D. Ladd be ing chairman, Donald Smith, Alex. Straiton, W. D. Smith and Mr.' DeMer ell being the other members of the committee. The diagram shows that tome im provements" must be made to the field before it can be utilized for such pur mihi a number of holes must be filled. and rough spots ironed out with rol- i lersj' a circle, 100 feet in diameter, with a conspicuous white band, three feet wide, on the outer edge must be made. Stonedust was suggested by one of the committeemen a favorable ma terial for the band covering, being a white subntarwe which compacts solid ly with proper treatment. Inside the circle will be number M, the official number given to Barre by the Greater Vermont association's aerial commit tee. An aircraft hangar must be erected to house one or more machines, but a yet the exact sire of this structure is undetermined and the possibilities are that a temporary structure win tie erected for the expert airman, who will fly from Boston to Barre to attend the Vermont state convention of the Amer ican Legion to be held here August 30 and 31 t. Many plots were examined by the Barre aviation committee before the final conclusion to establish it in Barre Town wa made, the trotting park off Ayer street being considered among them. The first airplane to land in Barre, July 4th, 1919, at the homecom ing celebration to World war veterans, proved that this field was unfavorable for such purposes', small, rolling hills preventing safe landings. This progresMve step taken, by the Barre board of trade places the granite center of the world one step higher on the ladder of progress, for Barre is among the few town or cities to com ply readily with the wishes of the Greater Vermont association. It offi cials have worked incessantly since that April meeting to establish such a field and, when it was learned an el army aviator wished t attend the Legion meeting here, "full steam ahead" was the order f the Barre hoard of trade. As befor intimated this proposition of establmhing a permanent landing field for aviator ha been in consider ation ever ince Jame 1. Taylor of Burlington, secretary of the Greater Vermont association, spoke at the an nual meeting of the Barre board of trade last April Mr. Taylor then em phatired the necessity of such field in ttt Vermont town and cities, declaring that unless Vermonter awoke to prog re of thi nature the tate would le outdone by it neighbor, moot of whom already realise th value of ac tion. One thing in particular which he said in conjunction with this was that Brre is in the direct line between Bos ton and Montreal, two citie, which, with projxr aviation fields along the route, could establish an international air traffic. Aero mail service has been ei-tablished in many part of the Unit ed States already and theie is a great possibility that such will be estab lished through Vermont. Yesterday's item referring to rela tives of Miss Clara Wightman, who formerly lived in this vicinity, was misleading, in that it spoke of Dennis Britton as an early storekeeper in Barre. The spelling of the name should have been Britain, and it was Samuel, who kept store in Barre in the Rey nolds block and not Dennis. His broth er by that name was one of the 49-ers, who came back, married Lucy Walker and settled on the west hill, Barre, now called Prospect street, in the house topped by a cupola. He lived and died there, a farmer. Mrs. Julia Britain Drury was a sister and liveJ in the brick structure on Prospect street1, Barre, which is now used as a garage. These were great-uncles and a great aunt of Miss Wightman, whose home is in Chicago, but is just now a guest at the inn here. J. N, Kinney got a painful injury last week at the sawmill of the Wil liamstown Co., a pile of lumber top pling over and striking his legs, so that it was several days before he could bear his weight on account of strains and bruises to feet and ankles. A family reunion of the descendants of Q. M. Carpenter was held in town the 25th, and the festivities included a picnic held a short distance from the village. Among those present were W. E. Carpenter, who came from Xorthfield, his sister, Mrs. Xellie Car penter Martin of this village, L. A. Carpenter of Barre, Mrs. Edith L. Al len of Albany, X. Y., and Edna B. Car penter and her chauffeur, Roy Derrick, of Burlington. Carl A. Sawyer was in North Mont pelier last week to visit his cousins, Misses Hattie and Bertha Johnson, of that place.

Severe breaks in the grain and provision markets ye terday accompanied disturbing finan cial and industrial developments, es pecially report of the closing down of a large motor enterprise on account of inability to sell its product. Wheat dropped as u h as eight cent a bushel and corn 0. Optimistic bank reports about crop conditions have started the grain mar ket downward, but lowest prices came after word had .been circulated of weakness in the stock market and of industrial difficulties. Prices on change here finished at the lowest point of the day, with December delivery of corn down to 1.28 in aome cases ai against 1.37 at the close on Saturday. Extreme decline in wheat amounted to eight cent a bushel at 2.51 for March delivery. Pork fell two dollars a barrel and lard more than one dol lar a hundredweight. Much of the selling pressure both in grain and provision came from , dis tressed holders. There was also much speculative dealing and unusual lack of buying support. Not a Mechanic.
