ciation holds its annual meeting here |

to be discussed will he a proposal I

making this announcement to-day j
Major M. J. Pickering, graduate j

This, he added, would be long,
enough for the average college box- j
Major Pickering said there should 1
be two judges and a referee for
three bouts, the right of decision to |
be reserved. '

j formerly Senator from Montana, has!
i purchased his twenty-third painting
; by Corot, it was announced yester- 1
'day. The new acquisition, which lie 1
obtained from the John Levy Art
'Galleries, 559 Fifth avenue, is re-1
garded by Mr. Clark as the masie.*-|
piece of his Corot collection. The >
' title of the work is "La Danse sous

'(Under the Trees at the Side of the j
(Lake.") Long regarded as one ofj
'Corofs most important works it was
I formerly a part of the Rousset col
i lection of Paris, at the dispersal of
I which it became the properly of
| Arnold and Tripp, the experts.
In quality and subject the painting
' is considered to be as fine as any
of the Corots that are in the Louvre.
! The work belongs to the last and best
| period of Corot, when he painted in
| the broadest tones and produced
I works that are misty and myster
ious. Under a great tree he depicts
;a group of women in classical eos
: tumes. Beyond them is a lake which
| fades away in mist and at the side
lis a hill on which stands a castle in
I the distance. Tt has the soft and
j feathery qualities that are best liked
in Corot's pictures.
| While the price which Senator
1 Clark paid for the picture was not
' made public, it is said to have been
more than SIOO,OOO. The highest
j auction price for a Corot is $150,000.

(They reach full size before they are

j they have passed the winter. It is
j because most of the old ones are

Canada Puts Time Limit
Applications For Training
Canada is advising her disabled sol- !
| diers to apply for vocational training
| before February 1. After that time
i only men who are still in hospitals
may apply and they are given onfy
tlirco months after their discharge to !
file application for retraining.
The Canadian Government goes on •
the theory that more thnn a year lias
passed sinee the last man was wound- [
ed or disabled In war, and that, if!
there is any man needing retraining
and who desires it. he should make
his wants known immediately.
The United States Government has
not acted so hastily. The Federal I
Board for Vocational Education has!
given, and is giving nationwide pub- I
liclty to the retraining of our disabled I
service men. Not satisfied with that. |
the GovernmSnt is doing all in its;
power to persuade every disabled j
man tp take retraining whether he I
desires it or not. I
Canada announces 8,000 already
trained and 10,000 atlll in training. |
The Federal Board for Vocational Ed- I
ucatlon announces more than 21.000
men now in training, anil before the,
opportunity to apply for this training :
is closed, at least 25,000 more appli- |
I cations arc expected.
