Being Made to Break Through His Defenses. Constantinople, Nov. 6 (By the Asso ciated Tress). Bolshevik forces are making determined efforts to crush through General Wrangel's lines on the Perekop isthmus,' leading ' northward from Crimea to the mainland of Rus sia, and are massing forces further to the eastward with a view to taking the long tongue of land known as the Isthmus of Tehonger. Five infantry divisions are attacking Perekop. and fresh storm troops supported, by artil lery, are being rushed southward front Salkovo and Genitsehesk to force their wav into Crimea from the northeast. It is said the bolsheviki fear their ar mies will be caught by winter before they are successful in crusMng Wran geland that they will become demor alized. Wrangel's -principal position behind Perekop centers about the village of Ioyhoon. Should t he Sivash, or Putrid sea freeze, as it rarely does, the, de fense of Crimea would be, more diffi cult. The bolsheviki so far have not landed troops, on the long sand bank on the western side of the sea of Azov, which is known as as VTongue of Ara bat." Such an operation would not be feasible, nor could positions be held on this narrow neck, of land, as Gen eral Wrangel's marine ' units control the sea of Azov. PRIDE IN.

HARDING GOES OUT FISHING Spends Part of First Day's Vacation Thus at Point Isabel HIS APPEARANCE ' IS HEALTHFUL Does Not Show Marks of the Recent Big Strain Toint Isabel, Tex., Nov. (By the Associated Press). Outwardly as care free as the happiest member of the little community of fishermen, whosare his neighbors here, ' President-elect Harding began to-day a vacatinn-which he hopes will make up for hisloss of rest and recreation during the cam paign. For his first day's outing he planned for the forenoon a test of t-kill with rod and reel and for the afternoon a golf game at the Brownsville coun try club, 20 miles away. The same combination is expected to occupy him during most of the days of his stay here. The appearance of the president elect, as he began his vacation, was anything but that of a worn-out man. De.-pite long hours and exertion in travel and public speaking, he lotlked robiwt and vigorous and told the vil lagers he had come more because he likedtbe seclusion and the outdoor life than because he needed rest. For his cruises along the coast, Mr. Harding used a launch placed at his disposal by Governor Hobby of Texas. He planned to take several extended pleasure trips in the craft and may also take an automobile trip this week up the Rio Grande valley. November 10th has been selected as the date for the departure of the president-elect and his party from New Or leans for Panama, but it is thought this date may be advanced to give Mr. Harding a longer stay in the canal one. i ASKS FOR PROBATION.

ARMISTICE DAY RECOMMENDATION BY MAYOR LANGLEY The services which American youth rendered and the sacrifices which thousands of them made to the end that the world might be heed of the menace of tier man militarism are not mini mized by 'the passing of the years. The first feeling of exul tation over victorious arms has given place to a more sober con sideration of what that victory meant to the nation and to the world. Gomes a realization that the service and the sacrifice I meant not only a checking of German aggression but also the development "of a better world relationship, a closer bond of . cvmpathv between the old world and the new, and a greater tol eration of the ideals and aspira tions of the peoples of the na tions. The world jis not yet freed of the baser jnstincts of individuals and of governments, but progress has been made. The part played by American youth in the achievement during , those tirring day of 1917-18 was incalculable. Tha millions did not render their service fn tilely; the scores of thousands did not make the supreme sacri fice iu vain. A better world seems likely to emerge from the world cataclysm. To them tho nation is deeply indebted. Therefore, in tribute to those " who lie in honored graves in Eu rope and the United States, and in recognition of the, splendid service which they and their liv ing comrades rendered to the na tion, I would suggest that Thursday, Nov. 11, the second anniversary of the signing of the armistice, lie observed in Barre insofar as possible and that the people give their at- tention to the significance of the day and the event commemorat ed.

C. W.

James K. Pirie was called on as an old warhorse of the Democratic party and one who had twice been chosen to go to Montpelier and. in responding, he gave some facts from his own experi ence as a legislator, saying that much of the real work of the session was done by the various committees, and that much time must be spent on a bill before it becomes a law. He also spoke of the workmen's compensation act, which became law when he was a legislator. Other who were called on and made brief remarks were Selectman Herman E. Smith, with whom Fred Pirie had served on the board of selectmen; Carl W. Seaver. the master of the lodge which Mr. Pirie is a member: a neigh bor, Frank O'Keilly, who predicted that a woman would be the next representa tive from Williamstown and hoped she might weiph 300 pound. H. L. Campbell of Barre City and Edward Bruce of the town were also railed on and responded briefly. A humorous selection, "The Namtng of the Babr," was given by Mrs. Fred F. Pirie. which was much enjoyed by the gathering. A social hour followed, during which substantial refreshment of coffee, sandwiches, rake and doughnuts were eerved. A point emphasized by eeral speakers was that in home matters, partv Imes should not he too closely draw'n. but that worlhy men and meas ures should be jpven unqualified sup port, no matter by whom they were pr oooM-d.

CRACKSMEN AT BIDDEFORD Safe Blown Open and $1050 In Money and Checks Stolen JOB EVIDENTLY BY PROFESSIONALS F Tvo Holes Bore al Safe and Heavy r'ges of , Explosr & Used Biddeford, Tf ov. 0. The safe in the office of the tilf Refining company on Main street wag blown open , last night and $700 in cash and $350 in Checks taken. The job was evidently that, of professionals, two holes hav- , ing been bored in the safe and heavy charges of explosives being used. The robbers left no clew. Entrance to the building was effect ed by cutting a square of glass from a rear window, a diamond evidently hav ing been used for the purpose. No one in the neighborhood heard the explo sions and the break was rot discovered until this morning, when a driver of the delivery truck opened the office about 6 o'clock. LIVE WIRES MAKE TROUBLE, But, Fortunately, There Were No Seri ous Consequences. Though three live wires of 2.300 volts eaeh dropped from poles to side walks of Barre streets last night dur ing the rain and windstorm not a sin gle injury occurred, doubtless due in in a large measure to the quick action of the Tenney Service company em ployes and the management. The first report of wire trouble came from Brook street and Harring ton avenue, where electrical fireworks were forming an attractive spectacle of no serious nature tamong the trees. Soon after, however, a report was re ceived at the Tenney station that two live wires were down on Cliff street, at the edge of the sidewalk. Immedi ately, the circuit governing this part of the city was deadened, and with it the power for many homes and street lights were shut off. Both wires had come in contact with a tree limb, burned off, and dropped to the ground. While repairs were being made here, a similar report came from Spatilding street, tfear the home of H. G. Bennett, another 2,300-volt wire having dropped to the sidewalk; and, of course, similar procedure put that district in dark ness as well as much of Washington street, street lights being out for more than an hour in parts of the city. Karl Young, manager of the Barre branch of the Tenney Service company, said this morning that linemen usually experience such incidents every fall, due largely to the summer growth of trees and their limbs. The trees grow during the summer, are relieved of the weight of leaves in the fall, then the branches spring up to come in contact with the wires, and when cov ered with water are quite apt to cause trouble. This is something which can not be avoided though linemen are con tinually guarding against such. MRS. DIANTHA SANDERS Died Last Evening at Her Son's Home in Williamstown.
