It is only three months in two years that the state's housing accommoda tions at Montpclier are found to be seriously crowded, leaving twenty-one months in which the state can get along quite comfortably. Such being the case, it oiaT-ht to be possible for the state to make fairly satisfactory arrangements for the three months without going to the extent of erecting a now state building. It is almost inevitable that some Member of the Vermont legislature is called by death during the session of the assembly. This session, however, Bias been notably free from outbreaks of illness and it seemed probable that adjournment wpuld be reached without the hand of death making its appear ance. But in the last few remaining days of the session the almost inevita ble happened, the member of the jFIouse from Calais being fatally strick en by illness, One is inclined to agree with the jfSpringfield, Mass., Republican that it is an unfortunate situation that Ma jor-General Hunter Liggett, the direct commander of the American army of f,200,000 men in the battle of the Ar gonne, has had to retire from active service because of age limit without having reached the ambition of being promoted to lieutenant-general. Lig gett seems to have earned the. right to (he title through service in the World tt'ar in a very important position. Pos sibly Congress will recognize that claim pf merit by passing an act to give Ma- or-General Liggett the greater title. The late Loveland Munson of Man chester was one of the mental stal warts of the Vermont judiciury sys tem for more than a quarter of a cen tury and also one of the state's lead ing citizens. His sen' ice on the bench fcf the supreme court of the state was (lot alone notable in its length but in Its intelligent interpretation of the du ties' of a judge as well. When Judge Munson retired from the bench four peara ago, after having served two pears aa chief justice, he carried with kirn the respect of the public and the dmiration of the legal fraternity, (vhieh had had occasion to present ases under his jurisdiction. Judge tfunson was an exponent of the high lype of jurist on whom the stability of pie judiciary system depends.

Latterly he lias been assistant pro fessor of civil engineering in the Uni versity of Vermont while at the same time acting as official tester of mate rials in the state highway department. There is nothing to indicate that Prof. Dix is a politician but much to prove that he is competent in the work to which he is called that ' of building roads. It may be confidently expect ed, therefore, that the work of good highway construction in Vermont will proceed as fast as the state is pre pared to advance the money. If the people of Washington county Realized that an investment of $1,500 ow in boys' and girls' club work rould eventually bring a 1,000-per cent teturn on the investment and keep hundreds of the boysdnd girls in the (ounty they would make short work t raising the money desired by the rarraont Farm Bureau for the institut es of this very important work. If iroperly carried out, this boys' and jirls' club idea looking toward the de- j lelopment of agriculture has splendid hanees for bringing Washington coun y back to the position in population jst by the last census by reason of Die depression in the granite industry (nd the war's drain. It is a very mod t investment which the people of pie county are asked to make, in view Jf the potential returns. At Morgantown, W. Va., the school (uthoritics propose to prohibit public irhool teachers from attending dances Juring the portion of the year when iey are engsged in teaching. Which going on the assumption that who! raeJiers do not need recreation and re lation but must be eternally grind ag away in the hum-drum of school rork or. perhaps, getting their enjoy ment in an occasional tea-drinking-wn- i fcjt. School teachers are about the me as the remainder of human kind; aid, although dance attendance by Item may be overdone, it is unfair to Squire that they a-twtain entirely from jrh meant of recreation and enjoy ment.
