The affair at Revere Beach Sunday
night bears out the claim that where
there's fighting the Marines are in it.
Having given himself up, Francisco
Villa needs to be watched all the more.

Reports from the southern part of
the state indicate that Congressman
Dale is havsng a difficult time corner
ing the "soldier vote" in his fight for
renomination by the Republicans of
the second district. A good many for
mer service men are inclined to re
sent the appeal he made to them on
the ground of being their great friend.
No doubt there are many names
wrongly placed in the United States
government's list, of 173,911 men now
classed as deserters, and those men will
take the first opportunity to clear their
names. It is not a good heritage to
pass down to succeeding generations to
have it known that the charge of de
sertion hangs over the family. .
The death of a Morrisville boy as
the result of playing with a cord used
to raise and lower a street light is
warning enough for the youngsters to
keep away from appliances connected
with street lighting or from any elec
trical equipment 'At the same time,
the companies dealing in electricity
have a duty to protect the public in
every way possible.
The figures of population in Caledo
nia county are now available, showing
an unmistakable trend away from the
smaller towns into the larger commu
nities and, at the same time, a loss in
several of the larger towns to other
towns in Vermont and to other states.
Of the seventeen towns all lost popula
tion except four, the latter being St.
Johnsbury, Lyndonville, )Kirby and
Vheelook. Hardwick, one of the three
large towns in the county, experienced
the loss which seems to have been gen
eral to granite centers of Vermont at
least, for Hardwick dropped from 3,201
to 2,641, making the largest percent
age of decrease in the county. The
other twelve towns which lost popula
tion decreased in percentages of from
.4 to 10 per cent. But the loss of the
county as a whole was rather less
than had been expected, due, of course,
to the development of St. Johnsbury
and Lyndon. If the other counties of
the state which had been expected to
lose in the census should maintain so
greater loss than Caledonia there
would be no danger of losing one of
Vermont's two congressmen, for some
of the counties having large cimtt-rs
of population are likely to show fa!rly
gooj increases.

tourists had to come in contact. This
summer it is different, far different, A
good percentage of the steamer trael

United States rather than eastward to
Europe. By common agreement .Amer

the summer getting acquainted with
their own country by means of motor
travel and stops here, there and any
where that night catches them. Proof
of this change of plan from the former

Editor, Times: It seems no mors

he thinks he has every reason to believe,
should be Informed just what power

of nations; namely, the bolsheviki, the
American socialist party, the so-called
"third party." Mr. Hearst and his pa

Senator Harding.
If there is anything untrue in that
sentence I do not want it printed and
am willing to stand corrected.
Among those who supported the
league were thousands of the noblest
Republicans in the land, a majority of
the Vermont legislature, the Ameri
can Federation of Labor, the Federated
Churches of America, the committee of
the American Bar association, a great
majority of the educators of the coun
