The Connecti cut State Council, of Defense has sent to the Council "of National Defense at Washlngtoii a recommendation that the; latter take -steps to inaugurate throughout the country series of war rallies patterned .after the statewide rallies which ate in progress in Con necticut. This action was taken after a .report had, been received by the State CounciXi of tie success with whlc)i about 20 rallies have been con ducted in six 'of the eight counties of Connecticut. , Plans are under way for rallies to be held In 'Hartford and Fairfield counties 'after the holidays. The object of the war rallies has been to bring home to the people of every?; Spomm unity, the facts and les sons; of the world, conflict and create a "will- to win the war" spirit. So far only i;the smaller communities have been reached. Afer the campaign in Hartford and Fairfield counties have been., completed iwar xallies will be held" in all the larger cities at which special, efforts will be made to reach all the community and neighborhood groups within the; cities. A corps se lected speakers have been used at the raltiec and at most of them there has been music by Liberty .choruses. The rallies 'have beenjarranged by Harri son B. Freeman qt Hartford, i,, Over 160 rallies have been -held, In addition to meetings, arranged by the state-board of education at which De fense Council . speakers have been heard. .At these, 50 rallies there has been a total estimated attendance of ovef 32,000, a large number in view of the fact that most of the meetings were held In small villages and towns where- an audience of 60 or 100 Is considered exceptional.
