of brotherhood consequent upon tho
war. So today wo have n solidarity
of our citizenship through tho war that
Is worth all the war has cost, If it
can bo preserved.
"During tho war our two great ene
mies wcro tho unbridled nutocrncy of
Germany nnd the unbridled mob of
Russia. I do not know which Is worse,
but I do know that wo of America fear
the spirit of the mob ns much ns we
did tho mailed fist of Germany.
"The bnttle we have fought, there
fore, Is only half won, nnd If wo nro to
win entirely wo must preservo tho
same spirit that we evidenced nt that
Springfield meeting, nnd tho solidarity
of nit classes of our citizenship.
"Just ns we went Into tho wnr many
of us trembled lest the gencrntlon of
today might not live up to tho glorious
traditions of Illinois in other wars.
After seeing what Illinois lads did at
Bollcau Wood, at Cantlgny, at Chateau
Thierry, at St. Mlhlel, and In tho Ar
gonue, wo know that Illinois need not
blush for her sous, ns It nover has had
to blush for their forobears."
After tolling of tho formations of tho
State' Council of Dofonse, with it legis
lative appropriation of only $50,000,
and tho various things It was called
upon to do, Gov. Lowden continued:
"Theso multiplying activities of tho

the funds nvallablo for Its use, I did
not wish to call n speclnl session of
our legislature, and therofora I ap
pealed to a group of prominent mom
bers of this club to rnlso a hundred
thousand dollars to carry on tho work
of our stnto council.
"That group of distinguished citi
zens responded generously nnd
promptly, nnd tho hundred thousnnd
dollars, largely contributed by mem
bers of this club, was placed In the
hands of tho state council. Thoroforo
when I was Invited to this dinner I
felt It my duty to como to make ac
knowledgment to you for your fine, pa
triotic generosity to tho Btnto,"
Samuel Insull, chairman of tho stato
Council of Dofonse, wns the only oth

Illinois played In the winning of tho

Tho Stnto's part Is shown, ho said, In
more than 1,500,000 men registered
for military servlco, $1,000,000,000 lont

"With Gov. Lowden to lend, It Is
our belief that Illinois mado a record

PLEA FOR DISCHARGED WOMEN
"Thousands of women will auto
uintleally step out of positions and
part wllh pay envelopes as each home
coming troopship discharges Its human
freight nu our shines. It Is the busl
nesH of this country to see that those
women are protected In their retire
ment nnd that an exihango to another
Industrlnl front bo effected without ap
preciable loss to the pay envelope."
Mrs. Carrie Cluipinnn Cntt. nation
al suffrage president, thus summed up
recently the threefold problem of the
readjustment of the labor situation
from the war to the peace basis.
"We are entering our protest
against discharge of women without
piopcr warning and without help In
finding other positions. We have asked
the federal employment agencies es
tahllHbod throughout the country to
find work for soldiers to do the same
for women. Our stnto n'tiffrago asso
ciations net ns our local representa
tives In bringing pressure to bear and the national association uses what
federal Influence It can couiiuiind. Our stato associations also Investigate
".Should thero hu failure to act on tho part of the federal employment
ngenclos ltj.n,n.v. become necessary to call together the organizations now
working on the different phases of tho reconstruction of Industry as they
affect women. Tho Women's Trndu Union league concerns Itself1 with the
wage scale and conditions of labor. The Young Women's Christian associa
tion specializes on .the care of women out of positions. Others nttuck the
question from different angles,"
"Tho pioblein of readjustment Is threefold first, sifting out women from
the seldleis' civilian eiuplojineiit and that of thu war servlco women home
from tho front; second, piovldlug woil: tor these substitutes as well ns tho
inuultlon workers and war bureau clerks, and, third, elimination of thu In
competent. "The Incompetents what Is to become of them?"
