Reed, Americanization Worker, Plans Several Months' Campaign Here. A campaign of personal solicitation to get foreigners working in Great Falls industrial plants to attend the evening schools where they may ob tain instruction in English and civics to better fit thein for citizenship will be the main ain of the Americanization work being started here by J. C. Reed, Americanization worker for the Na tional War Work council of the Y. M. C. A., according to a statement made by Mr. Reed Thursday. Mr. Reed, who came here Sunday, after having been in charge of Amer icanization work in Oregon and Idaho, has already made a- preliminary survey of conditions at the sinelter and the Great Northern shops here. Iiis first work will be to get the foreigners at the plants to register at the night classes at the junior high school to take studies which will fit them to become citizens. May Start New Classes. "The Americanization work under the auspices of the National War AVork council here'' asserted Mr Reed Wed nesday, "will continue for several months. I will be in Great Falls until the work is well under way and a good foundation has been laid for the citi zen training of foreign-born workers. Legion Will Co-Operate. "We have been assured of the co operation of the American Legion in the work and aim to enlist the support of civic clubs. The industrial plants have also promised too co-operate. "One of the important features of Americanization work among children of foreign-born parents is the task of keeping the children hi school after they have passed the sixth or seventh grades. The foreign-born parents, ac cording to our surveys, take their chil dren home from school early in manv cases because they say that American education makes it difficult for them to keep the children at home. The reason is that the children, after ac quiring American ideas, find it hard to stay with the parents who have not been educated in the wars of their adopted country. The task consists of instructing the parents in the rudi ments of Americanism so thev will Disarmament « Bankruptcy Which? The entire sum needed to save the lives of three and a half millions of starving children in the war devas tated areas of Europe is less than the cost of one modern battleship, according to Mr. Hoover. An English super dreadnought of the latest type is said to cost more than $32,000,000. Correspondents put the cost of Japan s new fighting monster, the Matsu, at §40,000.000. A United States battle-cruiser of the formidable type of the Lexing ton costs the taxpayer about $23,000,000 to build. The United States naval estimates for 1921, the New York World notes, are nearly $700,000.000, as compared with naval appropriations of about $400,000,000 in Great Brit ain, and about $150,000,000 in Japan,—and the United States is facing a deficit for the current fiscal year of ap proximately $2,000,000,000! An official statistician recently showed that ninety-three cents out of every dollar collected by the United States Government goes to pay for past or future wars. "Disarmament," says Major-General Tasker H. Bliss, who was Military Representative of the United States on the Supreme War Council and Commissioner Plenipotentiary on the American Peace Commission, "is the only means of preserving the world from bankruptcy and civil ization from ruin." The proposal for a general disarmament of the nations of the world is arousing the deepest interest in all coun tries.
