Walbridge THOUSAND TEACHERS ATTEND Sixty-second Annual Convention of the State Association at Montpelier Montpelier, Oct. 20. Upwards of a thousand school teachers are pres ent at the 62nd annual convention of the Vermont State Teachers' associ ation which opened in the city hall here yesterday afternoon, the larg er auditorium seating 2000 being filled to the doors. Mayor Ballard welcomed the teachers and the re- spouse was made by Supt. E. M. Ros- coe, president of the association The principal address was delivered by Rev. E. C. Luther of Trinity col lege, Hartford, whose subject was: "Are We Wasting Time in School and in College?" "Perhaps this title should read, saM the speaker, "Are we wasting time in our pupils lives? The most evident loss of time in the education al industry is the time that is not devoted to it. "Heaven forbid that I should seek to reduce childhood to the treadmill of the constant study of books or to deprive our boys tnii fclrlt, of lht-lr divine right to ample play time. But I do believe that our vacations are longer than can well be afforded and that the dally sessions might be ad ded to without harm to the pupils without depriving them of one desir able particle of the joy that is the heritage of youth. In fact, I be lieve most children might almost welcome such a change as that sug gested. After all, isn't it the teach ers, the college presidents and pro fessors who would be most outraged by a plan which should keep them on their Jobs for periods comparable with those which must be devoted to business in every other employ ment?" Booker T. Washington addressed the evening meeting his subject be ing "The Negro and the Application of Education to Life." ARGUES FOR REFERENDUM Oregon's Defense Based Upon Recog nition of its Legality Washington, Oct. 19. Oregon's de fense of the Initiative and referen dum method of legislation has been presented to the Supreme court of the United States in the shape of a brief by Attorney General Crawford of that Btate. The brief is a reply to the attack by the Pacific States Telephone and Telegraph company on the constitutionality of the meth od. According to Mr. Crawford, the question of whether the initiative and referendum method violates the clause of the Federal Constitution which guarantees to each state a republican form of government is political one for Congress and the President to pass upon, and not a judicial one for the courts to decide. The attorney General argues that the political branch of the Federal Government has already decided that the initiative and referendum method is constitutional. "S'.T.itors nnl ro!rp:cr.ta'.ives from states reserving those powers are seated In the Senate and House of Representatives without protest, " he argues in this connection." When new states are admitted the presi dent and congress pass upon the form of government presented by the proposed state, and have in several instances approved State Constitu tions reserving the identical powers attacked in the case at bar, notably Oklahoma and Arizona. nun Down r - w is not a drop of alcohol la &4 ; You have a steady, even gain, day by day.

Chairman Sutherland favors the English plan of direct assessment on the employer for injury resulting to an employe because of his employ ment, wherever the responsibility ntay rest, but others support the Ger man plan of a general tax on employ ers and a common fund from which all injured employes are paid through the government. This sys tem the Utah Senator regards as tin suited to the American form of gov ernment because of the danger of abuse through political inan'pulntion and personal favoritism.
