The regulations are child labor orders 4 and 5, issued by the U. S. Children's Bureau under the child labor provisions of the fair labor standards act. Order No. 4, Armstrong said, has the effect of setting a minimum age of 18 years in all occupations in logging and all occupations in any sawmill, lathe mill, shingle mill or co-operate"Stock mill, with certain exceptions. Logging of pulpwood is covered when done in connection with the logging of timber for other uses but not where pulpwood only is: logged. 18 Minimum Order No. 5, according to Armstrong, has the effect of establishing 18 years as the minimum age for employment m occupations involved in the operation of power-driven woodworking machines, as these occupations have been declared particularly hazard ous for, young workers. The following types of employment in con- Committees Thrown Into Discard Without Ever Having Functioned Two committees created by the University of Vermont board of trustees two weeks ago to manage UVM's financial affairs and to prepare a permanent program of rehabilita tion of the university are dead issues, it appeared yesterday. Both Roy L. Patrick, trustee, and Dr. Hardy A. Kemp, dean of the UVM medical college, two members of the three-man administrative committee set up by the trustees to take over management of the university, admitted that recent developments have thrown, this committee into the discard. Dr. Paul C. Packer, dean of the college of education, Iowa university, and investigator of the UVM situation for Gov. Wills, was the third member of this committee. Packer is still in Iowa. Patrick, Kemp and Packer were also members ' of a joint advisory committee including some alumni representatives to determine a long range program for the financial reorganization of the university that was set up at the same time. At the time the trustees established this committee, they reported they had adopted a budget for 1941-1942 that substantially balanced. Their action over the weekend in throwing the whole financial problem into the lap of Gov. Wills gave a different aspect to the university picture and ! nullified the two committees. Neither committee has ever functioned, Patrick and Kemp reported. vear. Mrs. E.

Wills has designated as the rehabilitation committee, devolves the task of initiating a program to bring the University's operating expenses within its income and to find a way to finance an accumulated deficit of nearly $1,000,000 under the regime of the late President Guy W. Bailey. The alumni will work in co operation with a general state committee which Gov. Wills indicated in his statement yesterday that he will appoint in the near future.

William H. Wills saying that they found it impossible to prepare a financial program as contemplated by legislative act simply because they did not concur with the views of the majority. The nine who signed the statement admitting inability to proceed were: U. S. Sen. Warren R. Austin, Burlington; Thomas C. Cheney, Morrisville; Roy L. Patrick, Burlington; H. M. McFarland, Hyde Park; Henry B. Oatley, New York; Newman K. Chaffee, Rutland, acting president of the university; Carroll W. Doten, Cambridge, Mass.; George W. Alger, New York; and Willard A. Mitchell, New York. Among those dissenting from the views of this majority were: Guy M. Page, Burlington; William C. Walker, Cabot; D'onald A. Hemenway, Northfield; Asa S. Bloomer, Rutland. The names of Edwin W. Lawrence, Rutland, and Cassius R. Peck, Portland, Ore., were also missing from the list. Invite Minority Opinion The Free Press invited the minority members of the board of in.i-.coes to express their "position on the UVM situation as differentiated from the nine trustees filing signed statements with the' governor and publicly released by him." All except Lawrence replied. All of the trustees of the old University of Vermont, the private corporation, have offered to provide a program in co-operation With the. governor, it is understood. There are nine trustees on behalf of the state agricultural college who are elected by the state legislature. The trustees of the .two corporations are also trustees of the operating corporation, the University of Vermont and State Agricultural college.

Special to the Free Press MONTPELIER, July 28. An order made Oct. 1, 1940, requiring the Irasburg Water company to obtain an additional source of water supply was suspended by the public service commission today as the result of ' a hearing held at Irasburg July 15. The new order does not bar parties, concerned from bringing further proceedings. According to findings in the order issued today, the net revenue of the company for 1940 was $346.34, not taking into account depreciation; the company has no reserve or surplus, and although tne owner, H. c, Healey, has made several attempts to. raise funds, he has been unable to do so; there are about 60 customers, with no indication that a growth in business can be expected; and it is estimated that an additional source of water supply would cost of Rutland.

Most certainly I join with my fellow trustees in expressing our regret that over expansion of the plant and personnel as well as the under-financing by the state of functions properly belonging to it, viz., medicine, teachers' training and agriculture, have plunged the university into its present very serious condition. 3. I am on record .for and have many times urged closer cooperation of faculty, alumni, state and trustees in solving this problem. A committee' can go far, but meanwhile the university will deteriorate very fast unless there can be a cooperative spirit among all concerned. 4. As to the last, any of us would be gladly out of the mess. but I will not be one to ask any man of advanced years who has long served in a position of this sort to crucify himself for the sake of an over-zealous few. This should be a personal matter for each, not for the group. I do wish to assure you very sincerely that I can and will give you every support possible for any. plan that will assure future service of the university to the boys and girls of the state.

Wills: A majority of my fellow trustees of the university have signed a communication to you. This document' is an unofficial adoption of a plan out of harmony with votes taken. I therefore feel at liberty to state my individual dissent. Of course this dissent does not extend to the paragraph dealing with resignation. Last winter I suggested to) you that I resign so that you ould appoint to -my place your unofficial adviser. This was an effort at cooperation made the more willingly because for some years my service to the university has been at personal sacrifice. Later I renewed the suggestion. In 'May I gave a resignation to the acting president to be filed with yu whenever you desired to appoint a new group of trustees. He still has it awaiting the occasion for its use. In the meantime I have endeavored to perform my duty as a trustee. Thus my conduct for some time past harmonizes with the offer to serve or resign which a majority of my associates have expressed to you. But the remainder of the communication of many of 'my associates represents their final acquiescence in a plan to which, with all it carries in train, I cannot in good conscience assent. This is not a proper occasion for an expression of my reasons. Respectfully, GUY M. PAGE. Now that the plan adopted by per build-up and abuse than by ?
