In the recent campaign on return
ing, soldiers, the Knights of Columbus
favored a larger amount, maintain
ing that loans and gifts of money
are' the most effective help to the
soldier, With the consent of the
committee the Knights of Columbus
have ca fried this difference to the
Secretary of War In whom the final
decision rests.
Secrera.ry Baker changed the time
of meeting to 4 o'clock. He Indicated
that iiis disposition of the proper ex

among .the returning soldiers would
depend largely upon what took place
at the conference with the Knights

would probably withhold his decision
for further consideration.

Reconstruction asks heroisms of ALL of us j&st as in
cannot live to himself alone each isT dependent upon his fellow.
Work is needed asked for. Good wages must be maintained to meet living costs .
to tide over. Money should be spent wisely, of course. But it is not wisdom and it is
not patriotism to keep from buying needed things. Practical
citizenship realizes that all good which came during the War
by improving the earning capacity and therefore ther living
conditions of several million families must not be allowed
to backslide to the old "conditions, or worse. We must all
help to keep them up!
