150,000 persons In the Protestant
churches nnd frnternltles of this city,

out warrant In the Internal affairs of a
friendly nation, one of our Allies, and

Entertained in Private Homes
"They're going to patch up my hose
somehow and I'll soon bo ablo to manip

days ngo, but I can move them round
so folks thlnK they are real.
"No, It wasn't In a big bnttlo that I
was wounded. It was Just one of the
drives mnde last August 9 near Belgium.
A shell burst and hit mo In three places
I was knocked unconscious and I dldn t
know for a good many hours afterward
that my ryes had been knocked right
out and my head pretty Veil mutilated
Isn't It great that I got my glass eves
before going home for Christmas? I'll
have to have a new bridge for my nose
nnd It may be attached to glasses That
will pretty completely disguise my de
formities Anysvay I'm happy."

REBUILD WAR'S CRIPPLES
Major McKcnzio Wonts Them
Fitted for Real Jobs
"No cripples and no charity."
This must bo the attitude or the
publlo toward tho maimed soldier, ac
cording to Major n. Talt McKcnxle, di
rector of physical education at tho Uni
versity of Pennsylvania, who spoke at
Houston Hall this afternoon on "Re
claiming the Maimed."
Major McKcnzle told of his experi
ences as a medical officer In the British
army, when he was In charge of tho
"command depot" nt Heaton Parki Mani
Chester, and as Inspector for similar In
stitutions for the treatment of con
valescents, founded by the British War
'"After former wars people looked upon
the crippled soldier as a man to whom
some easy Job should be given out of
pity," Major McKenzle said. "Crippled
soldlerB became night watchmen and
"The aim of those who have charge
of the rehabilitation of men wounded
In this war Is to make them not only
self-supporting, but capable of competing
on even terms with men who are sound."
