Report Come From All Over the
Country of Difficulty Demobilized

Employment.
London. From all Darts of the coun
try come reports of the difficulty de
mobilized officers are navtng to nuu
Jobs. Those former officers with wives
and families to support are in many
cases living on meager pensions.
One of the most remarkawe cases
of unenmlovment is that of a Cam
bridge university graduate who for
the greater part ot the war neia an
imnortant command in the army and
cmhsaniiantlv n TPmnorarV DOSt Of
great responsibility in a government
department. He is armed with a let
ter from the war office manning nun
for his services and adding: ."There
are few people with greater organ
izing ability, more cnarming iuaiiueia,
greater tact and drive than yourself."
Honored by King George.
Another letter to him from Sir Auck
land Geddes, president of the board
of trade, expresses warm personal
thanks for your loyal and devoted co
operation In very difficult work." King
George bestowed on him the order of
Commander of the British Empire.
But these credentialsi have been of
ho avail in his quest for suitable em
ployment in this country, ana, in de
spair, he says that he Is going to
America next month.
Ex-officers have discovered that the
business world regards long military
service as a disadvantage rather than
an asset. An infantry captain, 43 years
old, with wife and three cniiaren,
said : '"I have farmed in South Africa,
served with the Natal mounted police,
and prospected for gold. I want an
outdoor Job connected with agricul"
ture, with a minumura salary of $1,
250. I cannot get one and I have ap
plied fOr a small holding, but am told
I may have to wait twelve months."
Offered Half Old Salary.
Another former officer reported his
firm would take him back at half his
prewar salary, saying that was the
best they could dfl, as trade was so
bad. '
"Some companies don't know there
has been a war on," commented a job
seeking ex-officer who before he went
into army was the head clerk in an
insurance office. "My people have of
fered me $450 a year, and I am 26."

Washington. General Pershing's
final, days in France contained an inci
dent which is disclosed in a report
just reaching national headquarters of
the American Red Cross from Paris.
It was a gift of 94,625.40 francs,
more than S10.000 from General Persh
ing nnd the officers of his Staff to the
Red Cross to be devoted to some de
serving work among the mothers and
children of France who suffered in the
war.
Several weeks ago, it now -Is re
vealed, a chaplain attached to General
Pershing's headquarters visited Amer
ienn Red f!ross headauarters in Paris,
asking to be shown the various phases
of the work being carried on.
The check, beating Pershing's signa
ture, was the result, reaching the Red
Cross the day the general bade fare
well to France.
A letter accompanying the donation
stipulates that the money be placed in
the "Stars and Stripes" war orphan
fund, which, assisted by the Red
Cross, has "adopted" thousands of
French children whose fathers were
killed in battle, insuring for them sup
port and the means of educating themselves.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 28.-r-Under
xhe provisions of the new German
laws providing for the expropriation
of articles to be turned over to the
Allies under the terms of the Ver
sailles Treaty, the National Govern
ment is authorized to compel the per
formance of anv kind of work and

This fact is disclosed in a report

In summarizing this feature of
the German laws, Mr. Edwards says:
"The National Government is au

POPULAR BLUFF, Ark., Oct. 28?
It would be hard to convince Frank
Baumblett, who returned this week
from overseas service, that the num
ber 13 is unlucky. To begin with,
Eaumblett enlisted on the 13th day of
the month, and was assigned to the
13th Regiment of Marines. He left
the United States on the 13th day
of the month, was overseas a little
over thirteen months, was discharged
on the 13th and his -regiment, the 13th
received their final pay on the 13th,
day of the month. So all in all, the
lucky number for him.
