WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 15, 1919.
It is reported that many of our returning soldiers and
sailors instead of going back to their hoines are entering
the large cities to seek employment.
The large cities are preparing to take care of their
own returning men, and employers will naturally replace
them in their old jobs in preference to engaging non
Two things complicate the employment question in
cities at present. One is that many employers have been
forced by the war-time distinction between essential and
non-essential industries to lessen their product, and must
wait for the indications of returning demand to in
The second consideration is that many women and
alder men have taken the places of young men, and in
many cases their services cannot in fairness be imme
diately dispensed with.
These conditions will make the city a difficult place
at present for the young men from small towns. It will
be better for such a young man at present to return to
his own home, where he is well known, and take his old
job for the time being. He can watch the development
of business and make his descent upon the city when
conditions appear favorable.
It may be that formerly we were too proud to fight,
but certainly now we are proud of our fighting.
It looks as if President Wilson would have a full hand
of kings and queens to show down upon the peace table.
If it is decided to sink the German fleet, better select
a few German submarines to do it. They have had ex
perience in that line.
