EARLY SHOWING OP 1937 STYLES OF MEN Made to for $4. IBs Sure and Attend the Presldente Birthday Bali at the Rutland I Armory Tomorrow Night, January 29th. a I NEW Pest No. Peet No. 1, according to the night clerk In the local railway ticket office, is the borrowing artist who always lacks just 15 or 20 cents of the fare needed to get him back to his wife and Strangest thing of all is that these borrowers are always persons evidently living in comfort.

When a traveler gets caught a little short, the clerk explains, be thinks that a slight lack of ticket money Is just a drop from the railroad bucket It isnt. Every one of (these touches burns a hole in the clerks pocket if he weakens. And during the course of the day the sums often become monumental if a clerk is soft hearted. The fact that the pest always promises to send the xnoney back by next train seldom "helps. He never does.

Demjurrers were filed yesterday In Rutland Municipal court In the cases Charles M. Bert L. Stafford and Lathrop Baldwin, officials of the Marble Savings hank, who face charges of state hanking law violations in connection with the John I. Cocklin 1251,000 defalcation bank funds brought by States Attorney Asa Sv Bloomer. I Whether or not any decision would made upon the demurrers before Judge Milford K.

Smith goes out office Sunday night could not. be learned last night. Judge Smith had taken the defense motions under consideration and was unprepared to state what course of action would take. The demurrers in the cases of former Gov. Smith and Stafford are Identical, but that filed by Baldwin differs, somewhat due to the difference in the charges brought against Smith and Stafford and those against Baldwin.

Defense demurrers allege that the complaints filed by Bloomer do not show that a complaint rwas made by the commissioner of banking and insurance, as is necessary under the statute. It is also alleged by. defense attorneys that the charges against the bank officials are not sufficiently specific to inform them just what crime they are supposed to have committed. Baldwin Case. 1 The Baldwin case demurrer states that no facts are set forth showing that he was required by law to make report of the kind and pafure alleged by Bloomer.

It further states tbaf the prosecution against him was brought upon complaint of the state banking commissioner. Smith." Stafford, Baldwin, and Samuel A. Howard, a trustee of the bank, were arrested on December 28 the ba'nklng If violation chargee. While no demurrer was filed in the case of Howard, It is understood that his case would-not be called for trial while demurrers were pending on the same questions of law as would be involved In his iase. The Smith demurrer was filed by Attorney- Fred E.

Gleason of Montpelier. Attorneys Edwin W. Lawrence and Harold I. OBrien entered the Baldwin demurrer and Attorney Deane C. Davis of Barre Introduced the demurrer in the case of Stafford.

If no action is taken before Monday! the cases will be transferred to two new state officdals. States Attorney Bloomer will be succeeded by States Attorney Elect Angelo J. Spero and Judge Milford K. Smith will be replaced by Judge Christo pher A. Webber.

Expenditures During 36 Were 8 P. C. Less Than During 1935, 12 P. C. Under 1932-35 Yearly Average.

A reduction of 12 per cent Jn the cost of maintaining the public works department during over the average cost of the four years, previous, was reported by Mayor Henry II. a summary of accomplishments unde his administration mailed out yesterday to 199 taxpayers, businessmen 4nd members of the board of aldermen. Expenditures during 1936 were 92 per cent of those made in 1935, according to the mayors statement and only 49 per cent of the yearly expenses prior to 1932.) The reduction in expenses, Mayor Branchaud said, was partly because of WPA projects and because of economies introduced by Commissioner of. Public Works Edward L. Tracy.

I ToUl average expenditures by the department of public works Including the water department during the years 1927-1931 were 3185,307.93, the report shows. Average expenditures during the years 1932-1935 amounted to 3103,606.64. for 1935, 398,608.32 tad for 1932, 390,700.80. i With the completion of projects now under way, the situation in the water department was summarized by the mayor as follows: Water Situation. All of the requirements of the New England Insurance exchange, which resulted in reduced.

Insurance rates to householders amounting to at least 330,000 annually, have been completed. All accepted streets have water mains, hundreds of feet of four inch pipe have been replaced by six inch or larger pipe and many Improved connections have been put in. This means that from now on we will have available for other expenditures all of the yater receipts above the cost of ipalntenance, receipts approximating 350,000 annually, maintenance not over 325,000, leaving an equal amount for the eny to use elsewhere as it sees fit. Citing the fact that for the first time in history the city will have complete adequate water i and sewer systems when projects now under way are completed, the mayor said We have applied for WPA projects for the construction of sewers on every street in Rutland that either had none or had an Inadequate sewer. Consequently, with the completion early this spring of our sewer construction program, the only coats from now on In our sewer system will be for maintenance.

Sidewalk Program. Referring to the sidewalk and curbing program, the mayor said: Availing ourselves pf the WPA, which pays the entire cost Pf labor, we are endeavoring -to make a start in providing Rutland with much needed sidewalks and curbing. Only two-fifths of the funds available for these projects have been used, and work will be resumed this spring. If possible, this project should be enlarged or continued. If our streets could all' be curbed, with our present bituminous treatment of the entire roadway surface, there would be no, washing out of our roadbeds and thousands of dollars would be saved annually.

Pointing out that (he city is receiving inpayment fbr wages in all its federal aided or financed projects a total of 320,000 monthly, Mayor Branchaud said the city cannot hope to receive this amount in the future. When WPA funds cease, the mayor continued, the city will be faced with the problem of providing work for the unemployed or with caring for needy families through the charity department unless they are absorbed by private Industry. At the present time there are more than 300 men employed on these projects. I YOUTH LEAGUE HEARS REV. J.
