The following summary of the work
of the 19U1 legislature at'Montpelier in
prepared by E. F. Crane, a reporter of
the Vermont Pre bureau, in which
The Barre Daily Times was a member:
To summarize numerically, out of 558
billa introduced, 11(1 in the Senate and
442 in the House, 383 (77 Senate and
306 House) have reached Oov. Hartneos.
Of this number, the governor had
signed 282 and vetoed five up to final
adjournment. Five were recalled from
him and taken care of through RubHti
tition, etc.
The five bills vetoed by flovernor
Hartnei were: 8. 22, homestead law; S.
23, surviving husband's interest in real
estate of deceased wife; S. 85, placing
expenses .of mentally defective pernons
upon the state; H. 32-, registers' fees
aud fees of county clerks,' and II. 360,
enabling minors to contract for and
surrender insurance policies. Only one
of the five, the homestead law, passed
both houses over the governor's veto,
aid that by a two-thirds majority of
only one vote in the House. S. 23 pissed
the Henate in aprte of the veto, but
failed to get by the House.
This being the vear for submwsion
of proposal of amendment to the eon-
(titution of Vermont, it is of interest
to note that out of 22 proposals sub
mitted,' only eight got out of the Sen
ate and only four of these were con
curred in by the House. These are:
Proposal one, giving equal suffrage to
women; proposal three, providing that
the legislature shall designate the man
ner of filling vacancies in the Home of
Representatives; proposal five, allow
ing accused person to waive right of
jury trial, and proposal IS, making le
gal age of women 21 instead of 1M.
Things Started But Not Finished.
It is yet too early to look back in
retrospect and judge the worth of the
hanges made m the ermont laws by
the legislature of 11)21. In five or 10
ears, it will be easier to judtre. But,
ooking back now over the session jiwt
closed, it would seem to the obeerver
from the side lines that the legislature
of 1U21 would be more likely to be re
membered for the things which it start
ed to do, and did not, than for what
it has really done. This is due to a large
extent to disagreement on msnv impor
tant matters between the House and
For instance, the Senate repealed the
direct primaries. 1 he lfmisp killed the
mesure. The Senate passed the central
normal school bill and a bill increasing
the number of scholarship at Middle-
bury, Norwich and the Iniversity of
Vermont. The House killed both. The
Senste reciprocated bv killing the
Siearns supervision bill and the mes
ure to limit the salary of th commis
sioner of education, and bv so amend
ing the teacher training bill that it
was held up until the closing days of
the session in a committee of confer
But outride of the educational fipht
which, ith the mixup over the com
missioner of highways, kept the ses
sion well stirred up and dominated
everything else, the House started to
put through an income tax measure, to
build a dairy plant, and even serioiilv
discussed establishing an aviation
board, but decided rmt to in each cae.
The Hou-.te also passed a bill which
would have brought more revenue from
bunks, but the Senate blocked this and
no airreenient was reached.
Whether these actions were wise or
otherwise is not the purpose of this ar
ticle to discui-. but- attention is merely
ailed to the fact that many of the
measures before this legislature which
wre of state-wide interest failed to
become law. Thw is not saying that no
mportant legislation was enacted at
the session of J!21, however.
In the matter of highways and
schools, legislation was enacted, even
though tlujre. is still niucb difference
oi opinion ss to wncwier tnis legisla
tion will bring a!oiit the desired re

Highway Board.
The creation of a highwsy hoard of
three members, including the governor
as chairman and two members appoint
ed by him, the board to choose the high
wsy commissioner and have general su
pervision of the highway matters of
the state, is probably the moi.t out
standing piece of legislation enacted
during the session. It is practically the
only radical change in the state's jk1
iiy, with, perhaps, one exception.
Tbi is the change which provides
that the women in the state's prison
at Windsor shall be removed and shall
be placed temporarily in the house of
correction at Rutland. A movement to
ward this end was started early in the
session after Mrs. Lillian H. ttlzendam
of Burlington had visited the prison
and reported on the condition of the
women there. The report of the com
mittee from the legislature authorized
to inspect the enal institutions recom-ir.etid'-d
that the women be removed
from AVindor. From the statements
h have been made, it is probttble
that the men and women in the penal
institutions will be kept in separate
parts of the state hereafter, and the
policy thus adopted looks toward the
establishment in the near future of a
women's prison in some country dis
trict, where farm land wiil be avail
able. Sunday Observance.

the old Sunday blue laws, which had
been found difficult to enforce snd to
put in their place something which
could be enforced.
A law to insure the use of standard
time throughout the state was enacted
at this session. Thi will not affect very
many communities, as the greater part
of the state was on standard time last
summer, only some of the larger cities
going onto daylight saving. As the sec
tion seeking to regulate the operation
of train service was stricken out of
the bill, no difficulties should arise over
this new law.
Poll Tax.
One law passed in the closing days of
the session will affect many people.
This is the reduction of the poll tax
from two dollars to one dollar on the
grand list. It is estimated by many
that the revenue from this law will be
even larger than under the old law, with
only the men paying a poll tax, as it
is said that there are more women than
men of voting age in the state.
As to the Afhool. there was sent
to the governor on the final day of the
session what was tagged as a compro
mise bill agreed to by Mr. Stearns of
Johnson, who led the fight for the nor
mal sclnxils, and the opposing forces. It
is hard to see, however, jusj where the
compromise comes in. iso mention is
made of the normal schools, or of .John
son and Castleton, in the bill. The mat
ter of teacher-training is spparently
left entirely with the state board of
education to establish such teacher-
training courses as seem necessary in
found necessary to authorize the ex-j way machinery received by the state
irom tne leaerai government; $is,uimi
for completion of dormitory at state's
pendittlre of $10,000 to meet a deficit
for the present fl-scal year. The depart
mental budget measures called for ap
propriations of slightly over three mil
lion dollurs. A special budget bill, pro
viding tor construction at state insti
tutions, federal aid, etc., called for close
to $l,2lfl,0(N). Other special appropria
tions of the legislature in smaller
amounts brought the total close to
eight million. During the discussion of
the budget toward the close of the ses
sion, it. was announced that the total
expense for the coming two years
would be approximately $7,77-1.583" Fol
lowing this statement, the educational
appropriation was raised from $264.000 When J'OU take Father John's
to $.320,000; the provision for taking-
advantage of federal aid from $.100.000 ! Medicine J'OU DUlld Up new re-

Financial Matters. j
Revenue for the next two years was,
estimated at $3,3.0,!.r0. This'is on the;
basis of the state tax of 20 cents for
the first year and 40 cents for the sec !
ond. as enacted by the general assem
blv. This would leave a deficit of around
$2,K),000 at the end of the fiscal vear I
