Those who recently were predicting that prosperity was just around the corner are still within reason only the corner has been moved a trine further away. The Vermont state fair commiahion has set the dates for the 1921 fair as Sept. 13, 14, ir and 18 the 13th, per haps, to get rid of all the bad luck in regard to weather. 1 At the present time 40,000 of the 62,000 school children in Vermont are under medical supervision. This may account in part for the absence of se rious epidemics in the schools of the greater part of the state during the last year or more. Those who have bad any connection with building operations during the last few years will want to know iust what there is to the allegations re garding a "building trust" and they would like to know something, too, about the very high ' pikes of tiome building materials. From their stand point, the proposed investigation lias come point. The defection of Argentina from e league of nations is much more than Offset by the addition of half a dozen other nations, all of which were as eager to get into this association of nations as Argentina was to get out. Despite the lengthy debates and the atricacies of the problems presented, the league of nations is getting a I'air !v good start.

Here we are at the end. of the fir?t ear of the next, or the l.")th, remits, ml we fear that no progress has beeu made toward recouping the loss sus tained in the 14th. However, there re nine years to follow before the census enumerators begin their round of nose-counting again, so there is ra- sou to hope that the loss of 1920 will be hade up on Jan. 1, 1930. - : v!iaB,BM!Sj fijBty III li t rain ltB Certain observers say that the world will not got under full iteam Hguin mtil it is definitely decided ' What Uormany has got to pay in, repara- ions for her part in the World war. Perhaps it would be just as well to amend that declaration by saying that the world will not feel its full im petus to work until Germany has paid he reparations or given satisfactory issurances of a determination and ca pacity for paying. However, that ought not to affect the United States one way or the other. The persistent effort of the German ambassador to France to gain an in- reduction to the American ambas- ador at Taris, Hugh C. Wallace, is Jrather characteristic of the plan of the German nation to thrust itself into nternational society notwithstanding Ithe former German government's vio- ation of the rules by which interna- ional society lives, and before com- ilete manifestation of Germany's de- ire to adhere to such rules hereafter kvas afforded. Ambassador allae efusal to meet the German ambasnn- Hor might seem to some to be churl- h but it nevertheless has consider ble basis. The University of Vermont get a hance to play Yale in the "Bowl" at Psew Haven next fall. That char.ee ught to recompense for the loss of a place on the Harvard baseball sched- le, the Vermonters having refused to liccept a mid-April date for a diamond lash with Harvard on the ground that hud-April is still the season for win- er sports in northern Vermont rather han for outdoor baseball. Prospeett playing Vale ought to cause th tat university boys to get into I lie tram for all they are worth not for t victory but for a reasonably good howing against a great antagonist. Give him a Hickok Initial Belt for Christ- mas $1.50 and $2.00. F. H. Rogers & Company down those demands so that something like $700,000 has been lopped off. Krn with that reduction in estimated ex penditures, the income will fall far short of the amount required. That would cause the prospects of elimina tion of that direct state tax of 40 cents to go aglimmering and to im pose upon the cities and towns of the state another burden of sacrifice A their own needs to meet the collective call of the state. It seems, therefore, that the legislators should turn their faces sternly against the raids on the treasury which are not necessary at the present time, to pare down the new appropriations to the minimum requirement. Those who go to Xtont pelier next month should not get the notion that the state is rolling in wealth just because they hear that the state has a surplus of $1,100,000. VERMONT'S FINANCIAL CONDITION.
