Senator Smith Urges Passage of Bill Appro

One of the moat important problems
growing out of the war?that of pro

wounded fighting men and transform
ing them Into uaeful member# of so
ciety?1? about to be given attention
by Congreaa. The bill to eatabliah
vocational rehabilitation of soldiers
and Bailors la to be reported to the
Senate tomorrow by Senator Hoke
Smith, of Georgia, chairman of the
Commit tea on Sducation. it wilL also
be brought before the House.
Te Help Blind and ( rippled.
Senator Smith regarda the bill as
one of the moat eaaential matters
which Congreaa has been called upon
to consider since America's entry into
the war.
The bill provides that persons who
are disabled under circumstanccs en
titling them to relief under the war j
risk Insurance act are to bo ordered
by the Insurance Bureau to follow j
such courses of vocational rehabill- !
tation as the Federal Board of Yoca-!
tional Education may prescribe. The
entire system Is to be under the joint
control of these two boards, the pur
pose being to help the crippled, blind
ed. legless or armless unfortunates in
to ways where they can be self-aus
stalnlng. An appropriation of 12.000,000
is asked, in the bill.
Senator Smith's committee held a
large number of hearinga on the bill
Insisted Trying New Plane; Didn't
Stop Engine When Falling.
Lieut. Resnatl of the Italian army,
killed in an airplane accident In New
York on Friday, was a martyr to
duty. In the opinion of brother avi
ators here, who yesterday received
the full report of the accident.
"Resnatl was worn out with hia
many flights," said one of these offi
cers. "Yet he insisted on trying out
this new plane. Evidently something
happened to him, for he did not even
shut off his engines the first thing an
aviator is taught to do when he gets
Into trouble. The Instinctive senae
which tells an aviator that he is clear
of the ground apparently failed him
and. in his first maneuver, too close
to the earth, one wing caught. The
same instinct, through weariness, per
haps, failed to tell him to shut off
his engines."
Resnatl made scores of flights in
the interest of the third liberty loan
and was preparing to lend similar aid
to the Red Croes drive.

Margaret Hopkins Worrell's float
in the Red Cross parade, and the
soldiers, three Sammies, pressed
Into service by Mrs. Worrell to hold
the globe in place during the re

Mrs. Worrel's float was one of the
most beautiful and artistic in the
parade. It symbolized the earth en
circled by the Red Cross?the Red
Cross represented by the nineteen
members of Mrs. Worrell's unit In
the Interior Department clasping
hands around the globe.
At the four corners of the float
stood four Red Cross nurses symbolic
of their organisation, reaching to
all four quarters of the wdrld. The
nurses were Emma Seeley, Florence
Lampert, Jane Phillips and Ada
Wahlen?all four young women
waiting their call for service abroad.
Mrs. Worrell stood on the back
of the float, representing a head

When the Emergency Fleet Cor
poration wis called upon at the be

a scale never before contemplated, it
found the important shipyards of the
country tied up with contracts for
naval vessels. The navy had been
forehanded in looking after its own
important Interests. The Shipping
Board, therefore, had to build yards

j Corporation could build ships.
