NASHVILLE GLOBE, FRIDAY DECEMBER 6, 1918.
AFTER 20 YEARS'!
Spaniel-American War Veteran Has
Highest Praise for Lung-Vita. !
A CONSTANT SUFFERER !
Declares Famous Medicine Relieved
Him of Asthma Entirely.
"I can hardly realize that I am now
entirely free from asthma and bron
chial trouble. And Just to think of go
ing through a winter like the last
without either of them, is great,"
says Mr.. J. J. Barry, who lives at 361 ;
Twenty-fifth Ave., North, Nashville,
"I contracted a cold while in the
Sapnish-American war, and it left me:
with a bronchial trouble and asthma.
I have been a constant sucerer ever ;
ince, and part of the time I could 1
not lay down at night. j
"I was taking medicines all the;
time, but found nothing that would1
cure me. Mr. J. A. Wells advised me!
to try Lunc-Vita. I did so, and want'
to say that this is the first winter in
twenty years that I have not been I
pothered with asthma and bronchial
trouble. I certainly recommend Luug
Tita." Your druggist or dealer should
handle Lung-Vita, but if he won't sup
ply you, write Nashville Medicine Co.,
Nashville, Tenn., for free booklet.

TAKES MONOTONY OUT OP LIFE.
Stillman A. Benway, Boston Man,
Joins Department of Labor to
Make Factory Work More Inter
esting. Taking the monotony of out factory
lffn la thn hlot rf a llnctnn man whn'
has just Joined the staff of the Train
ing and Dilution Service of the De
partment of Labor. Stillman A. Ben
way assistant director of the planning
division of that service, has been
asked to do just that work, and hopes
not only to make industrial life pleas
anter for the workingman, but to make
possible for many factory employes
a larger return for their work.
Mr. Benway is a firm boliever in the
idea that routine jobs kill initiative
and stifle individuality, and that the
man who Is endlessly doing the same
little process In a factory, day after
day, not only is unlikely to take small
interest In it, but to suffer positive
harm from the deadening effects of
a recutine which at the best, is only
tolerable. Moreover, there is the dan
ger that such a workman, once put out
of a job, may be unable to support
hinilesf unless she can find just such
a job to do eslewhere.
The Training and Dilution Service
plans to correct this condition by mak
ing it possible for factory hands not
only to master certain industrial proc
esses, but to gain a fairly compdehen
sive idea of the whole industry in
which they are engaged. In this way
they will not only gain added interest
in their work and stimulate their men
tal powers, Mr. Bon way believes, but
they wil be able to change jobs if
occasion demands it, undertaking other
processes. Moreover, tneir aciueu
knowledge will make them more
valuable to their employers and will
very probably bring considerably more
money into their own pay envelopes
than if they remain mere unskilled
or semi-skilled workers.
Mr. Benway was born in Boston In
1S7S, and was graduated from the
public schools there. After taking
some special courses at Tufts College,
ho entered the merchant marine, and
was at sea six and a half years. He
gained in this time a familiarity with
engineering that led him into a posi
tion at th e Charlestown (Boston)
Navy-yard as a supervisor of machin
ery, where he had much to do with
planning and estimating. He also bo
came an organizer for the A. F. of L.,
and is now president of a machinists
union In his home city. He came to
Washington from the Charleston Navy
yard, for which he recently was in
strumental in obtaining a $1.400, (H0
appropriation which will be used for
now machine shops, housing $iiU0,(i00
worth of machinery, and for improved
"We are going to co-operate with
the manufacturers in this work," says
Mr. Benway, in describing the aims
of the Planning division. "The object
is to broaden the horizon of unskilled
and semi-skilled workers and to give
them improved industrial and mechan
"In the past the training of work
men for skilled trades has been left
largely to the business man. Now it is
time that the Government took a hand
"There is nothing so detrimental to
a workman as monotony in his job. If
we can do something toward giving
the factory employes of the country
a more general knowledge of machine
work, we believe that we shall be do
ing work of real value. It is not a
good thing for any workman that he
should be dependent for his livelihood
on one specalized process.
"The reconstruction era Is a parti
cularly fitting time In which to put
this project into effect. I think that
workmen generally feel unnecessary
fear and apprehension regarding after
war prospects. Reconstruction will not
be so difficult as they expect.
"These are going to be jobs for ottr
men. The artificial inflation of prices
that the war has brought will eventu
ally come to and end, but the whole
process is going to be gradual, and I
do not fear any pronounced shock to
SERVICE MEN SHOULD STICK TO
Could have No Greater Osset Than
War Risk Policies Issued by Gov
ernment. The advisability of holding to Gov
ernment insurance policies is Impress
ed on soldiers and sailors in a bulletin
issued by the Information and Educa
tion Service of the United States De
partment of Labor.
The returned man, it is pointed out,
can have no greater asset and no great
er Incentive to thrift than the keep-
j ing up of his insurance. It provides
1 protection for him in case of disability
I and assurance of a livelihood for his
family in case of his death. In case
I of death a $10,000 policy entitles his
beneficiary to $57.50 a month for
twenty years. If he is permanently
disabled, he will receive $57.50 a
month during his life, and if he dies
before twenty years have elapsed the
money wil be paid his beneficiary In
equal monthly Instalments. The bene
ficiary may be a wife, child grand
child, parent, grandparent, brother or
These benefits are provided men who
have taken out insurance at a most
reasonable rate. The only requisite Is
that the very moderate premiums be
paid regularly. By attending to this
easy requirement the returned man
assures comfort to himself and his
family. Chocks or money orders
should be made payable to the Treas
urer of the United States and address
ed the Bureau of War Risk Insurance,
PACTS CONCEKNING THE ACTIVITIES OF THE NEGRO lN WAR WORK
THE MISSES CARTER IN THE CITY
Misses Kathryn and Maria Carter

Daisy Carter, on Overton Street.
Many parties and dinners were given
for the young ladies and they say
they enjoyed their stay very much.
STRENGTH OF THE NEGRO IN THE UNITED STATES ARMY, IN THIS COUNTRY
AND ABROAD NEARLY 400,000
Furnished by Office of Emmett J. Scott, Special Assistant to Secretary of War
November 8, 19 IS.
Negro represented in practically every branch of the military service
Infantry, cavalry, engineers, signal corps (including radio or wireless
telegraphy) medical corps, (including physicians, surgeons, dentists phar
macists, etc.), field and coast artillery, sanitary, ambulance and hospital
corps, ground section of aviation corps. The Negro is found in the steve
dore regiments, labor battalions, mess service and in all of the essential
work behind the lines, in addition to large representation in the combat
Commissioned officers number something over 1,200. About 250 have
been commissioned in the Medical Corps, with over 100 on active list.
Many thousands (exact number cannot be given for military reasons)
are in the combat forces and in other branches overseas. The report
of General Pershing and other officials indicate that they are giving an
excellent account of themselves and showing remarkable ability as fighting
men, cool, steady and reliable under the severest shell-fire. One entire
regiment has been cited for honorable mention for deeds of extraordinary
valor ; several individuals, notably Needham Roberts, Harry Johnson, Wm.
Butler, etc., have been honored with the French Croix de Guerre for ex
ceptionally valuable service at dangerous posts. One stevedore regiment
was likewise cited for honorable mention for breaking the world's record
in unloading and coaling the big war vessels, the Leviathan, at a French
Provision has been made for the training of at least 20,000 young
colored men in technical and mechanical branches, in connection with their
training in military science and tactics, opening the way for greater use
fulness in the Army, and preparing them for a lucrative livelihood after
the war. This training is being given in fifteen or more of the leading
educational institutions of the land, and embrace opportunities in the vo
cational and collegiate sections of the Students' Army Training Corps
where such units have been established, and also in the vocational Detach
ments organized at numerous points.
Sixty colored chaplains have been appointed and are serving among
the troops in this country and overseas. 325 or more men are engaged in
Y. M. C. A. work, covering both sides of the ocean. A number which can
not be accurately estimated are doing a splendid work in the cities ad
joining camps where colored soldiers are stationed, directing well equipped
club houses and recreation centers, in conjunction with the War Camp
Community Service. Other colored men and women are co-operating
helpfully with the Commission on Training Camp Activities and promot
ing the morale of the colored troops in a most effective way and in many
A colored war correspondent has been designated to spicialize on
the service of the colored troops on the western front in France. He is
making accurate reports to the colored press.
Colored women have been authorized for service as nurses in six
base hospitals, where colored troops are located in large numbers. In
addition and to supplement the labors of the registered nurses, a Student
Nurse Training Corps has been established for the instruction of nurses
for army work, and provision has been made for the training of young
colored women at a number of colored hospitals.
tinn .c!orcwoma,n hs bGe appointed as a field worker, under the direc
tion of the Woman s Committee of the National Council of Defense to
mobilize the woman power of the Negro race, and to instruct them as to
how they may, through their various organizations and as individuals,
most effectively aid the nation to win the war.
Women have exhibited a remarkable willingness to engage in all linos
of war work and in the industries they have bravely taken up the most
exacting tasks, relieving the men for active duty at the front. In farm
production they have done a wonderful work.
The Y. W. C. A., with an energetic executive secretary in charge has
been especially helpful in planning and carrying on successfully the
numerous Hostess Houses for colored soldiers and their friends at the
various camps. Several have been firmly established and others are in
process of erection and equipment.
The office of Emmett J. Scott, Special Assistant to the Secretary of
War, has been in operation for more than a year at Washington. This
Bureau was created to handle the delicate and oftimes complicated prob
lems growing out of the Negro's connection with the military arms of the
nation and hin relation to many war activities. The service rendered by
this office is meeting with widespread approval at the hands of the press,
pulpit and people generally, and its acknowledged efficiency is reflected in
the countless improvements that have come to the Negro soldiers in the
form of betterments in camp conditions, enlarged opportunities in every
branch of the service, and a more hopeful outlook for the whole race as
American citizens. Mr. Scott's office has grown constantly in scope and
influence, and it has had from the outset the confidence and co-operation of
the masses of the 12,000,000 Negroes of the nation, whom it is designated
to represent in the War Department.
The patriotism and 100 per.cent. Americanism of the Negro people of
the land is convincingly evidenced by their generous purchase of Liberty
Bonds of all four issues and a steady demand for the War Savings Stamps.
The race has contributed liberally in all of the "drives" of war relief agen
cies, such as The American Red Cross Society, the Y. M. C. A., the Y. W.
C. A., etc!, besides many local and independent movements that have been
formed to make happier the lot of the American soldiers of both races here
The conduct of the Negro soldiers and the loyal, earnest and enthus
iastic support the nation has received at the hands of the 12,000,000 col
ored Americans constitute one of the brightest pages in the history of this
struggle for world-wide liberty and democracy. The Negro has been a
most active and helpful factor in the conflict from start to finish.
"While he is at the front
will take care of you."
