During these Chrlstinascs, when men in the trendies ami on mined seas i sing carols; when our country glows to fts uttermost boundaries with the sym bol of the lied Cross; when the most j earthbound look for awhile at the; crosses and the stars -new under-1 standings, new simplicities, new will ingness for service come to very many men and women. And as our soldiers and sailors who went out voting and strong and singing the "Long, Long Trail" nnd "Over There" now come back crippled and disabled, Americans are seeing more | and more their own part and responsi-1 bilily in reconstruction. This work 1 means teaching the blind to see, giv ing movement to the paralyzed, power in tin- remnants of arms and legs to do full duty, the chance of health to the tubercular, light to minds be fogged by shell shock. Our government, the Medical De partment of the Army and the Ameri can Red Cross, from llio time of our entrance In the war, have been work ing out the tasks preparatory to this reconstruction, which is the key-word to their usefulness and happiness. The work Itself is already begun in the hospitals where our returned men have been brought. This has meant the equipment of hospitals, the recruiting of the doc tors and nurses and the formulation of plans for training for vocations, which means Independence, replacing activi ty for inactivity. For tills physical reconstruction In our military hospitals at home, our government, through the office of the Surgeon-General, Is asking for recon struction aids. This hospital service Is open to hundreds, Indeed thousands, of women who as wives of men In the service have been technically barred from other military hospital service. They are needed at once and may learn full particulars regarding train ing, qualifications, pay and so forth by writing for Information to the office of the Surgeon-General, Division of Reconstruction, Washington, D. 0. They are civilian employees of the Medical Department of the Army, and their work comes nnder one of two classes —either the distinctly physical reconstruction which has to do with massage, electrotherapy, dydotherapy and mechanotherapy, or the occupa tional work which .will prepare the men to take up the regular vocational training for which We often hear the word "re-education." #The Federal government lias charge of this work. Other agencies working under government control will help. The American Ited Cross, especially, will supplement It, and through Its Home Service -lms assumed the obliga tion to assist every soldier or sailor and his family whenever they need aid ur counts I from iL •5* 4* «i« 4> •> ♦> ❖•> •;* v♦> V ❖ TO RETURNING SOLDIERS v .5. * v From the Home Service Section ❖ 4' Local Red Cross ❖ ❖ • + ❖ 4' ❖ ❖ ❖ * When you get home, consult yout Home Service Section on matters you and your family may wish to know about.

The Home Service worker called, found the mother'very ill and needing hospital care at once. Arrangements were made for the mother's care and also for a home for the girl in the country where she would receive real home training and love. The mother grew worse and died soon afterwards. The seventeen-year-old boy enlisted. The boy in camp had not known that his mother needed his help, but was glad to contribute from his pay when the true circumstances were made known. The girl Is now In the coun try, going to school, and Is receiving allotments from both of her brothers and Is well cared for.
