THURSDAY EVENING. WAR WORK NEEDS OF OUR ARM.Y GREATER IN PEACE THAN IN WAR "The biggest work and the great est opportunities of the United War Work agencies in France lie be fore and not behind them." This statement was made here to-day by Dr. Nolan R. Best, well known editor of The Continent, who arrived in New York 'yesterday on his return from six months' service as a Y. M. C. A. worker with the American Expeditionary Forces. "Britain and France," Dr. Best oontinued, "have been practically stripped of able-bodied men in or der to maintain their armies at full strength. On the other hand, the manpower of the United States has, in comparison, only been touched. This means that the British and French must demobilize first in or der t'o free the Tommies and Poilus for the great tasks of reconstruction The American forces, during this period, will have garrison duty to do all ovor Europe.

C. KERNS COMPLAINS To the Editor of the Telegraph: I. Charles C. Kerns, employed for nearly eighteen years at the Harris burg Post Office, have been removed by Frank C. Sites. On Monday, May 15. 1 received an order signed by Chas. H. Hoffman stating 1 would be transferred from the Maclay Street Station on May 20 to the muin Post Office, the hours of duty to be from 3 p. in. to 11 p. m., permanently. 1 took the matter up with the clerk at the Maclay Street Station and lie took the matter up with C. H. Hoff man at the main office when inform ed through the clerk of the Maclay Street Station that I should write to the Postmaster and state reasons for not being able to obey the order, stating physical inability. The Post master never gave me the courtesy to reply to my letter. May 20, the day the change was to take place I again renewed ray statement with the clerk of Maclay Street Station to advise the main Post Office I cannot meet the order. 1 likewise had my phy sician send a certified statement on account of partial paralysis and con sequent disability that all possible consideration be extended me. The day the order went into effect 1 was informed by the clerk of the Maclay Post Office that Chas. H. Hoffman said if I didn't take the work assigned to me I could not work at I all. This was a gross violation of the civil service laws. The post master does not have the power to give an immediate suspension, much less does any subordinate, and fur thermore, if an employe commits the most serious or flagrant offense the postmaster must send a telegram immediately to the First Assistant Postmaster General and receive the department's approval before any suspension is made, and follow with a letter to the department with par ticulars. This was not carried out in my case. May 22 I received a registered letter from the postmaster, stating lie wished me to call at ills office to have an interview concern ing this work. I called and instead of conversing relative to work he berated and used offensive language to me. The following day I receiv ed a letter preferring three charges against me: (1) Disobeyed official orders; (2) Absent without, leave: (3) Insolence to superior and refusal for duty after personal conference with postmaster. I answered his charges with an affidavit stating the charges are absolutely without foun j dation. I iMso sent a copy to the Postmaster General calling his atten | tion to my case, stating that Frank iO. Sites, postmaster at Harrisburg, is going to ask for my removal and 1 would he pleased to have an in spector investigate. Before I ans wered the charges I spoke to In spector H. E. Lucas and told him I was going to ask Washington to send an inspector. He said "ask them to send some one outside of Harrisburg office." I judged by that request he didn't care to be assign ed to my case but the department turned the case over to him anyway. June 14, I received a letter from the First Assistant Postmaster Gen eral, J. C. Koons, advising me that the department had not received any charges against me from the post master of Harrisburg. Why -the post master of Harrisburg didn't turn over to Washington answers to his charges and left seven days pass by is a mystery to me. July 30. becom ing impatient. I called up H. E. Lucas and asked him if he had my case. He said he had and would send for me in a day or two. July 31 I re ceived a letter requesting me to call at ihis residence, 2150 Green street, for an interview and investigation. He made iw> investigation, but tried to scare me and used slurring re marks. 1 also took the matter up with our Congressman and he in turn took it up with the Post Office Department at Washington, and they assured him and myself that my case would be thoroughly investigated he fore a final decision was given. Au gust 17 I received a copy of a letter purporting to be from Washington, from the postmaster of Harrisburg. stating that the department at Wash ington does not deem Mr. Kerns a suitable person for retention in the service and he is removed because ho refused to obey orders. Tills un just. decision by the Post Office De partment and bias statements of the inspector, and the postmaster spur red me on to continue my fight for Justice. I also sent a petition of about three hundred of Harrisburg's most prominent citizens, asking for the evidence that was submitted to Washington and the grounds for Justification for removal. Tho Post Office Department totally Ignored this petition. Through these men I have loßt a position 1 earned uu merits. Being idle since May 20, with nq In come from any source, 1 have lost at least SI,OOO, and was compelled to soli the two Liberty Bonds 1 owned In order to keep my two motherless children as well as my aged mother.
