STANDARD OIL COMPANY OF NEW YORK RFECT1 255 These resolutions were presented and adopted: Whereas, the Caledonia County Sunday School convention has as sembled in annual convention for the purpose of deliberating upon the af fairs of the Master's kingdom, be it Resolved, that we extend to the people of the South Congregational church of St. Johnsbury our full ap preciation of their hospitality and kindness, and be it further Resolved, That we extend to the officers and speakers of the conven tion our heartfelt thanks for their presence, for their devotion during the past year, and for the inspiring message given. Resolved, That we recommend to the convention that it re-establish the former district plan, and that the formation of such districts and or ganization therefor be delegated to the executive committee of the asso ciation. Resolved, That we regret the fact of the non-representation of so many Sunday schools in the convention, and believe that some means should lie used by the county officers to call the attention of each school to the importance of representation and attendance to these conventions. Resolved, That we recognize the present time and mood Of society as one full of peril and unrest, and we fully realize the great demand and opportunity of Sunday school work ers as important in promoting the study of the one great Ideal and Pat tern for all mankind, and to this end we re-dedicate ourselves to the great work to be done. Rev. G. E.

Warden. A class of little girls gave a demonstration of their promotion work to the great admiration of the audience. This was followed by a similar demonstration of promotion of a class of juniors in Grace Meth odist Sunday School under the direc tion of Mrs. G. A. Martin, which re ceived deserved applause. Miss Ber tha L. Silsby spoke of Home of the good things at the summer school for workers at Burlington, and Miss Jennie McDonald, spoke of the great value of reading, which was suggest ed by one of the speakers at the Bur lington conference.

French in a For best results use SOCONY Kerosene ON 0) most pleasing manner. A missionary nageant was given under the direc tion of Mrs. E. S. Hewitt of Brattle boro, assisted by a group of young ladies and gentlemen. This was ' a most interesting feature of the even ing's program and well given by the participants. The address of the evening was by Secretary Robbins upon the theme "God's. Appreciation of Youth." This was a strong and thoughtful presen tation of the value of youth to the world in every field of activity. In tire course of his address Mr. Rob bins called attention to the fact that in Caledonia county alone there were 3,000 young people not in the Sun- I day school, and that this proporlf on held true throughout the state. He cited the indisputable fact that his tory showed that nearly all the groat achievements in the history of the world were performed by young men or young women. He urged the church and the Sunday School to a renewed effort to enlist the young people in religious work and save the world for christian democracy.

He dwelt further on the qualities centered in the good athlete; brains, speed, weight and above all 'guts' or in milder terms nerve. He vent on the supposition that the brains had already been acquired, the speed could be acquired, the weight was acquired and if the nerve hadn't already been, it would be before the ' reason was over.

Why Not Do It The Bennington Banner, whose editor has long been in close touch with the political affairs of the state, makes the excellent suggestion that the Governor call a special session of the Vermont Legislature within the next six months so that the wo men can participate in the presiden tial election next year. "It would be an act of courtesy," says Editor Howe, "to the women of Vermont that they deserve at the hands of the governor and legislature. There are thousands of Vermont women who would be glad to partici pate in the fall elections if they had a chance and it seems too bad to deprive them of. something that would be granted them three months after the elections when the Legisla ture convenes in January, 1921. Gov. Clement has a splendid opportunity to sacrifice his personal opinions for the public good and we believe he is a big enough man to do this. There is an insistent and very proper de mand for a special session and it would be exceedingly gracious to the fair sex to give them an equal chance with the men in the next election. PARTY GIVEN TO 4 MISS GRACE DUTILE A party was given Miss Grace Du- tile by SO of her friends in honor of her approaching marriage, Sunday evening at her home, 3 Bagley St. She was presented with a nice elec tric chafing dish.
