THE CHAMPIONSHIP TO SPAULDING Burlington's Defeat at Waterbury Last Night Put Barre Team on Top WATERBURY PLAYED LIKE ALL-POSSESSED And Burlington Didn't ! Have a Chance Spauld ing Celebrates Burlington high school, aspirant for the Championship of the northern Ver mont basketball league, was defeated by Waterbury high school at Water bury last night in a hard, fast-played game by the score of 15 to 6. By vir tue of Waterbury's victory, Spauld ing high school automatically became champion of the league and winner of the large silver loving cup, which has two years, 1918 and 1919, reposed in the Spaulding assembly hall, and which now belongs to Spaulding to keep. At the Institution of a league it was agreed that the team which won 'the cup three years would be awarded un conditional possession of it for all time. Engraved on the cup besides Spaulding's are the names of Burling ton high achool, 1918, and of Montpel ier high, school, 1917 and 1920. Bur lington, having seven victories and two defeats to its credit up to the game last night, lost a chance to get two legs on the cup by being defeated by Wa terbury, giving the championship to Spaulding which had completed it schedule with eight wins and two losses. In case Burlington had won, it would have been necessary for Spaulding and Burlington to play off on a neutral floor for the championship. The new champs hold an enviable record. Besides winning eight out of iten games on the league schedule, only losing to Burlington high at Burling ton and to St.' Albans high school at St. Albans, they have beaten Montpel ier seminary twice, Goddard seminary 'once and was the only team to defeat Cathedral high of Burlington this year. While the bells in Waterbury were .tolling out a victory and while the boxes were being heaped on for a big bonfire by the Waterbury supporters, nearly the same things were happen ing in Barre. The result of the game was transmitted to Supt. White by telephone, and not a whole lot of time passed bpfore someone got into Spauld ing and started to let Barre know that Jn acoring a victory for themselves, Waterburr had scored a greater vic tory for Spaulding. A parade of stu dents, a big bonfire near the city square and a riotous night in general came in when the bell fell down. The Game at Waterbury. As for the eame which held so much In the balance, and which threw two two tnwns into jubilation and another into gloom, there was no doubt but that Burlington was outclassed. The guarding was so close that Burlington only got one or two half decent op portunities to shoot for the basket. One of these they made good, the only basket they got' from the floor. They started a little passing in the first part 'of the first period but all semblance of passing by them had died out long Tie !fore the end of the game, and Water 'bury was undisputed master of the situation. Burlington fought hard all the way through, but they couldn't 'tear away from the Waterbury guards 'Inn? enonrh io make it count. The scorinff opened with Lease of Waterbury dropping ono in from the foul line. The train see-sawed with first one team loading and then the other, and the period ended with Wa- terlmry 8, Burlington 5. Dunns this period Waerburv took shot after shot at the basket from different angles of the floor, and only managed to cage two of them. Burlington took a hand In starting the aenrinjr in the sei-ond half, and rut down Waterbury's lead by one point when TVnsmore got a foul. T.ease immediately evened up Ihings for the frame for Waterbury by duplicating Irnnmore's feat. Then the game began to roll Waterbury's way. Burlington got depeiafe and shot many times wildly to no effect. iTheir p:iing was completely broken nn ami tl.ere wa hardly a play that the wearers of the Waterbury black and gold did not figure in. Particularly noticeable was the au ,perb work of Randall, the rangv Wa .teebury center, the fine guarding of O'Brien, and the clever playing of .Less. Randall came into the game ,wlth a bandage over the edge of his ,rght eye, and before the pame was ow he had suffered a twisted wrist id "banged-p" knee, but each time he came bark for more. Many of the Burlington shots that were smothered they rn lay to O'Brien. The big boy bad his mitts on everything lat night. Less, playine right forward, broke away from his man time and time gain for a rbanee at the basket. Chase got the only bk-t from the floor for Burlington, and IVnmre broucht up the grand total with four point from tb foul line. Randall and Tvease were hiph rrers. the former with three ringers from the floor, and he latter wih one basket and tivr fouls. The line-up: Waterbury Biirliiurton l-ep. rf'. 1. KaU fJuild. If rg.

Due to aickness aud to failure to keep up in their studios, one or two play er have been absent from the line-up. Had they been able to keep thia team through the season it would be a safe bet that the name of Waterbury would have been pretty close to the top of the league now. Anyway, Waterbury would have been a logical contender for the championship, instead of for the cellar position. BR00KFIELD R. W.

The vioiting team outclassed the local team in ev ery point of the, game and In the last period of plavlng no eldom did Mont- pelier break through the, defense of the visitors that It availed them little. Clarke, even with his injured knee, showed up better than any other play er on the home team while Bartietts being taken out in the second period commenced the undoing of the home team. Up to that point the ooya naa shown team work all along but after that there was, from the spectators' ooint of view, but little evidence of it or else the visiting team opened a new line of offense which the borne team could not break down. At the end of the ftrat period the score was 6 to 4 in favor of the vult while In the second period Spring field got eight points and Montpelier none and tn the laat period me Tinner got 17 points while Clark waa able twice to break through and get a to tal of four points. The last period was nrettv rough compared with tne other two periods.

Filer, assistant in White Pine Blister Kust Eradication, U. S. Department of Agriculture). The white pine is one of our most valuable forest trees and by far the mM suitable tree for reforestation in the northereastern state. Because of ita rapid growth, it tolerance as to soil and moisture conditions and the value of the wood produced it la most important that this tree should be pro tected in order that it may be utilized for reforeitine waste lands, for pro tecting watersheds and for ornamental planting. Of its nxtural enemiea. the white pine blister rust is the most se rious at this time. How It Affeeta the Tree. The white pine blister rust ia a fun gus disease which attacks all the fke peedle pines but no other trees. The fungus may be present and growing in the tree, sometimes for several years before any indication is apparent. On the other hand it nmy, eepeeially on voung pines, develop very quickly. The disease enters the tree through the pores of the needles and makes its way to the twir where it lives under the bark and kills the growing cell of the tree: the fungus continues its growth until the tree is jrirdled and the result it a stoppage of the sap flow, which causes the tree to die from lark of nourishment. The younger trees are more susceptible to the d,''6 than are the older ones and are more quick ly killed. On the ulh-r trw the Crut iiifwtioii is ucually on the small twigs often a long way' from the trunk and it may be a imttter of years before the (linen make iu way down into the trunk. Tbe branrhe die as the dieae projrree downward; first the twig then the larger hranrhe and finally the main stem of the tree becomes girdled and death to the tree result. Often the tree is ao weakened by the bliter rust that other funci entr and kill the tree Wore the blister rust ha com phMed its work. Alo the disraed con dition of he bark raued by tbe rut attracts m e and squirrel, who feed upon the bark and frequently girdle tbe tree. The Story of Its Life Cycle. There are three ditinrt stai'es in the life cycle of this dieae. the one on the pines beinjr termed the ae, ul tape while the two on tlif rib" (cur rants and gvw.e'crric V being known as the nredo and tebal etajre r-pec-titelv.

In this (the uredo stage) the upper side of the leaf has been killed but evidence of the dis ease 1 usually apparent only on the under aide. The uredo-spores are ca ried by the wind on other agents and infect other ribes, but they do not have the power to infect pine. ThU second infection is the telial stage and, as in the preceding stage, appears only on the under side of the leaf. It is manifested from the first of August until the leave fall by circular patches of short, brown, hairlike growths, which in damp weather take on a grey ish appearance. These hair like struc tures when ripe release a brown pow der (teliospores) which can infect the pine and thus complete the life cycle. The Spread of Sporidia. Sporidia, in thia case applies to these seed-bodies above described which ara produced by the rust on the currants and gooseberries and which mav infect the w-hite pine tree. Fortunately these sporidia are carried in a virile state only short distances and are so delicate that ordinarily they cannot live more than 10 minutes when exposed to the air at a humidity of 1)0 degrees. Then too the atmospheric conditions have much influence upon the fertility of the sporidia. Many of these seed-bodies never germinate on pine although they may come in direct contact with the needles. A certain amount of at mospheric moisture is required and hpt dry davs are very unfavorable, while on cool, moist days infection ia rapid. Control. There is only one way in which the white pine cati be protected from this disease and that is by removing all the currants and gooeeberries, both wild and cultivated, throughout tne pine area and over a surrounding dis tance of 600 feet. The rultlvated black currant is especially susceptible to in fection and is a menace to white pine if located within a distance of half a mile. The state of Vermont in co-operation with the U. S. department of agriculture is making a determined ef fort to save the whtie pine in Vermont and to this end the rhief forester at Montpelier will gladly offer advice and any practical assistance possible to pine owners. It is urged that action be taken before it becomes too lata to save the pine.
