THEMES FOR UNITED PRAYER.
Saturday, Sept. 21
We pray that public sentiment may
soon make it unpopular and unsafe
tor any individual or group of indi
viduals to attempt to violate the
Thirteenth, the Fourteenth and the
Fifteenth Amendments to the Unit
ed States Constitution.
Saturday, September, 28.
We nrav'that the Federal Govern
ment may presently come to the aid
of the masses ot colored people and
poor whites of the South and provide
them with adequate public school fa
cilities as a means of decreasing il
literacy and race hatred.
Saturday, October 5.
We pray that the colored citizens
of America and the weaker people of
all nations, may permanently Hocnre
through the present world's war the
fullest measure of justice and protec
tion and gain all the rights and privi
leges of citizenship.
Saturday, October 12.
We pray that the bravery and gal
lantry of the colored American troops
on the battle fields. of Europe may
play a vital part in defeating the
Germans and spreading liberty and
democracy throughout the world.

Atlanta, Ga.The Georgia Division
of the Woman's Committee of the
Coun'll of National Defdnse Is com-
posed "ot the heads of every organ! -
zatlon of white women in the state.
At their recent executive meeting In
Atlanta the following resolutions
"Whereas, The colored people of
Georgia have shown an increasing
consciousness of their share In the
issues of this war; and .
"Whereas, They , have, responded
liberally and loyally to very de

DILUTION OF SKILLED LABOR.
Trainine and Dilution Service Will
Prevent, Shock to Industry by
Withdrawal of Skilled Work
men. "Dllutlon" of skilled labor, re
placing workmen who have been
drawn away by the demands of war
with less experienced workers in
such a way that Industry will not
be slowed up, is no wwell under way
under the auspices ot the Training
and Dilution Service of the Depart
ment ot Labor, recently organized
with Charles T. Clayton as its head.
The work of this service presum
ably will increase largely as the
war goes on. Wherever the supply
of skilled labor runs short, dilution
must follow; women, for example,
must be trained to undertake me
chanical processes and, when these
processes have been mastered, must
replace men in many positions.
The service will not conflict with
the work of the Federal Board for
Vocational Education. It is primari
ly a part of the department's great
war program. The need of the
Emergency Fleet Corporation for
labor necessitated originally a com
prehensive plan for training and di
Best methods of training laborers
for war work, instruction to Indus
trial plants and employees along the
way in which the work Is carried
out, will be numbered among the
functions of the service.
Forms of dilution are many, and
they vary from trade to trade. Di
lution means such reorganization of
work that unskilled men and women
may be given a large part of the
processes formerly undertaken by
skilled labor. The service will pre
pare' publications, based on its in
vestigations, with the aid of the In
formation and Education Service.
These publications will be distribut
ed ' through the essential Industries.
England's experience showed
clearly the need- for training work
ers where a large army is raised.
Thus far not nearly so large a per
centage has been taken for the army
as in England, but Investigations al
ready undertaken have shown the
need of prompt preparation.
The service is similar to that es
tablished in Great Britain, where it
was found necessary to enact any
laws enforcing training policies.
Manufacturers were eager to obtain,
the best information on training
methods, and, except 'for rare in
stances of Government aid, financed
the entire program themselves.

Emphasis is now put on the fact
that every training department
should be developed 'with the needs
of the employment office in mind.
Officers and managers should visit
training departments frequently so
I as to . assure cooperation between the
trainers and the foremen or the fac
tories. It is an axiom that a good

of the pay roll.
AMERICA WHI - rMMI-
Bureau of Information Will Be Es
tablished in Cities Havinir Large
Foreign Quarters to Protect
Uncle Sam is now going to fur
nish Information bureaus for his
nephews and nieces.
Primarily, theso bureaus will be
for nephews and nieces by adoption,
for they are intended as a part of
the ' great scheme ot Americaniza
tion now being worked out for the
aliens living in America, to provide
first aid for immigrants in any of
the thousand and one crises of lite
in a strange land.
It is unfortunately true that a
feeling has prevailed among certain
classes in the past that immigrants
exists solely to be exploited and de
ceived. The ignorance ot American
customs so general among those in
foreign quarters, their tendency to
trust strangers, and the readiness
of sharpers to prey upon them, all
combine to make their lot anything
but pleasant until they have learn
ed through long and costly exper
ience. Some of the immigrants have re
latives living in America and prob
ably most of them have friends here;
large numbers are aided by such or
ganizations as the Hebrew Shelter
ing Aid Association and others with
the same aims. But with all that
friends and charity can do, the Im
migrant at times has a hard time
in Americai and to save him some
of the more painful and expensive
experiences the United States Gov -
eminent Is establishing bureaus
throughout the country where 'the
worst of his troubles can be settled.
In many stores ot shady reputa
tion it is tho regular practice to ov
ercharge the Immigrant. Lawyers of
the shyster class charge him exor
bitant fees for little or no service,
and "runners;' exploit him where
i'vr possible. Fly-by-night "bank
ers" open establishments in foreign
quarters, where they offer to send
remittances home to tho families ot
men working here. Some of them
never send anything back at all;
largo numbers charge from twice to
ten times what the service would
cost to go if the immigrant knew
where to go.
Even in the event of.slckness and
death the immigrant Is exploited, if
he is so unfortunate as to find an un
scrupulous physician or undertaker.
It is too often the rule that native
born citizens pay little attention to'

The shaded portion of the column CaDt. Fisher has Just returned from
represents the expense of distributing
the flour, making it into bread and
getting the loaf to the consumer..
The chart shows that the farmer
is now receiving a much larger share
ot the final price for his product than
in the past, and that a considerable
amount of "spread" has been taken
out of other expenses.
!he desires and seeds ot the lmmi
' grant, and the consequence Is that
. he frequently becomes much disap
pointed with his career In America.
To remedy this whole situation is
the aim ot the Commissioner of Nat
uralization whose bureau Is a part
lot the Department ot Labor. To
show Americans their responsibility
. to the foreign born, and to show Im
migrants how they can become not
only Americans in legal form but
thoroughly imbued with the spirit
ot Americanism, Is the aim of the ln
I formation service planned' for the
Fosters, moving pictures, the
press, in fact every avenue through
which the immigrant can be ap
proached, will be utilized to reach
him. He will be taught. In his own
language and in English alike, that
the United States wants to help him;
I hat he has only to make his wants
known to be assured ot aid.
The information offices will help
Immigrants in bringing their fami
lies to America. In recovering nion-
ev of which they are robbed through
fraud, and in other ways assisting
to make life In America pleasant and
profitable. Immigrants will be en
courage to ask questions whonever
they are in doubht about their

method ot hiring men.
