I The Germans are making a some- hat tardy statement of their inten- nns to bring to trial the 000 persons Germany who are named by the al-, rs as having committed acts of atro- fj during the war. It is to be noted lat the announcement of the Intention start the trials was put out at the lychological moment when Germany bis dickering with the allies for a urk-down on the reparations terms.

The Estey Co. is of the oldest and most substantial the larger industries of the state Id it continues to be essentially a Irmont concern with Vermonters in itrol and having the welfare of Ver- bnt at heart. It, therefore, has the lid will of the people of the state to unusual degree. lUtornev General Daugherty an- inces that there will be no redress law for those whose names get on forthcoming slacker list by mis- Ie. It is to be presumed, however, t the government will make all end possible by priming correc- us in rase names are erroneously in- led in such list. That is tbe least icb the aggrieved parties might ex it for the wrontr ol being included slackers in the time of the coun i need. tCHERS' "BOARDING TLACES." i order to find out the tentiment ng the public school teachers of his Irict why teachers are not satisfied emain longer in rural school, Supt. II). How of Morrisville sent out -tionnaire to twenty-ii teachers ne room rural schools, asking them name three factors that would in- them to remain teaching in a rural hoi from three to five vears. It it ificant that fifteen of the twenty- I teachers, or 67 per cent, responded the first consideration that would e them to remain longer in a rural ol would b better boarding placea, Be the other eleven teachers gave I same factor either their second bird choice of reasons. "Boarding as used in the responses to the Uionnaire means table board and Li combined; and one would judge the comment by the teachers that empha'-i was placed on the room nmodationa. One speaker wants Congenial boarding place near the dhouae"; another aeVa com fortable boarding place within reason able distance (not more than a mile) with a warm room in private"; a third desires "a boarding place where there are a few modern conveniences, includ ing a warm room"; a fourth complains that "a rural school teacher is obliged to put up with any boarding place she can get, no matter if it is a railo or two from school." And so on through all the replies of the twenty-six teach ers, fifteen of whom considered better boarding places an the prime necessity. The results of the questionnaire are valuable. The conditions found in La moille county are probably typical of the entire rural section of Vermont. The teachers, all over the state find it difficult to secure satisfactory board ing places (room and table board) and they arc oftentimes compelled to walk long distances in order to reach their places of employment. To lessen that distance as much as possible they are frequently compelled to accept accom modations that are very unsatisfac tory, if not worse. They find their surroundings uncongenial, their home accommodations inadequate, their rooms poorly lighted and heated, their meals not always of variety enough to suit the appetite and other condi tions of such a nature as to make them discontented and anxious to get into a village or city. That, then, is one strong reason why teachers will not stay in rural schools. The solution of the problem lies, we believe, largely in the town itself rath er than in the state system of pub lic schools. The people must treat the teachers more as they would like to have their own daughters treated. The people of each community must pay personal attention to the work of pro viding suitable quarters for the young women; they must even open their own homes at some sacrifice and incon venience if the towns are to retain their teacher. There must be found in almost any community where there is a school a home, which is capable of providing fairly satisfactory accom modations for the teacher.

One who saves is very often spoken of as a selfish person but judging the act by its purpose, it is readily seen that this is a mis nomer and an unjust characterization of a generous act. As to the purpose of saving, it is not done primarily to accum ulate money, money as such doesn't do anybody any particular good; it is done for the purpose of protection and service, for protection against sickness, old age, for the purpose of giving the children an education, buying a home, enjoying many of the social advantages that accrue as a matter of self-development. Are these things selfish? Absolutely not I Depositors who have become interested in saving through our efforts have told us, "I am experiencing a new joy; I am finding and developing new powers I am discovering myself".
