i'f COLONIZATION PLAN DETAILED BY SECY, LANE Believed Returning Soldiers Will Desire to Go Onto Re claimed Soil ELIMINATE SPECULATION Would Surround Scheme With Safe-guards to Keep Sharks on the Outside Washington, Dec. 12.—Colonization by returned soldiers and sailors of large tracts of land under the direc tion and with the aid of the federal government is recommended as a so lution of many of the labor problems arising from demobilization by Sec retary of Labor Wilson in his annual report, made public today. The gov ernment should in the opinion of Mr. Wilson establish aru^ equip individual farms, which would be linked into community groups. The war has demonstrated the pa-1 triotism and loyalty of American la bor, the report says, and in the con tinuance of the "spirit of sacrifice" on the part of employer and employe shown during the war, Secretary Wil soit believes "lies the hope for the further attainment and development during the days of peace of that de mocracy for which we have taken up arms." The right of collective bargaining, long recognized by the department of labor, Secretary Wilson declares has WHEN NEURALGIA ATTACKS NERVES loan's Liniment scatter! the congestion and relieves pain A little, applied viihout rvbiatig, penetrate immediately and rest dad soothe tiie nerv es.

He adds that "if the principles upon which that agreement was founded can endure the stress of war ,it is fair to suppose that even greater success will attend their appli cation during the calmer periods of peace." To solve the labor problems aris ing from reconstruction, Mr. Wilson recommends the continuation of the labor adjustment agency of the Na tional War Labor Board. Agreements have been effected between labor and employers through this agency, the report says by which certain princi ples have been placed above further dispute. Agricultural areas should be pur chased by the federal government and added to the public domain to provide land for the carrying out «f the pro posed colonization program for re turned members of the military forces, the report asserts. It is proposed that administration of the program be di rected by a board consisting of the heads of the Agriculture, Interior, and Labor departments. Legislation needed to carry out the plan, Secretary Wilson believes, should include these provisions: The possibility of commercialized speculation must be eliminated. Colonists must be given access, r^ot only to land, but to farms not to the bare soil, but to fully equipped agri cultural plants ready to operate. The farms themselves must be weld ed together into genuine communities, by provision for roads, schools and markets, under the general supervi sion of the federal government. Arrangements have been completed, says the report, to care for demobiliz ed men, who do not care to take up farm work so far as possible through the United States Employment Ser vice, a branch of the department. On this point the Secretary says: In presenting these recommenda tions at this time, I regard it unnec essary to point out further possibili ties. In setting forth the necessity for land settlement I am not unmindful of the vast numbers who must again find their places in our complex in dustrial organization. It iB too early at present to forecast accurately the industrial organization or needs of our National after the w&r. All the prop erly adapted facilities of the depart ment of labor are at present engaged ih the study of these problems of re construction peculiar to manufactur ing and secondary industry and from time td time I shall have recommenda tions and conclusions to present based upon such studies." The report reviews the expansion of the department of labor from an .organization of four bureaus, to one of thirteen bureaus and tWo boards, in response to demands arising out of the war. During the fiscal yeari which the reort covers, mediation and con ciliation division handled cases involv ing 1,042,341 workmen directly and 1,315,657 indirectly. The employment service recruited for war industries during the year 1,800,593 workmen. The bureau of naturalization ad mitted to citizenship during the year a total of 151.44 SpersonS, a decrease under 1917 of 7,381. 1 Work carried on by the department is described as including: Securing em- fcift '/ftHiiJ# m: Ma WfcMHi the eight-hour 'TIs Mark ol Distinction to B* a Reader of The Literary Digest wmmmmmemrntmsm Will War-Time Wages Light on all these pressing questions will be found in Season after season, all-American teams have been selected by various football authorities. ii It has .been questioned by many as to -whether one*bf these all-star teams could defeat a top-notch college elev en, built up in team work by several years of play together. The problem was put to a test last Saturday. Pitt's record was secure as the col-1 lege champions of the country, and its team was one of the greatest that has ever played on a gridiron. They had played rings around the best college teams, and it was only a short time ago that they sent the much-vaunted Georgia Tech- Golden Tornadoes down to defeat. Their team was one that had been built up during pact seasons, and most of its men. were holdovers from last year. Their stars were in physical shape, and Pitt put up a wonderful game. But they were defeated Uy a team ployment in governmental depart ments obtain suitable legislation for the protection of women in industry promoting child labor laws provid ing for the construction of homes for war workers establishing better rela tions between negro workers and while employers, and establishing minimum wage scales.

Football stars of the north and south, east and west, made up the eleven of the Cleveland Naval Re serves. Pitt was unable to stand against them, and four years' record of wins was brokeu. The game brought to light one of the greatest backs of al_l time. Duke DuCote of Alabama Poly Tech, a practically unknown player outside of his own section, was the iron man of the ^velaiid eleven. Time and again, he smashed with terrific force against the supposedly impregnable defense of Pitt. So great w£s the fofce of his drives that that invariably 4he first tacklers were shaken off, and the secondary defense men were compelled to taring him down. These drives finally took the life out of the Pitt men, and the team slowed up appreciably as the game went on. To DuCote should go tho credit of breaking down the wonderful defense of Pitt, and making possible the tri umph of the Naval Reserves.

Give every discharged United States soldier, sailor or marine his unifprm— and with it 90 days' extra pay. That's the plan Senator Hejiry F. Ashurst of Arizona wants the gov ernment to adopt as part of its de mobilization program. Senator Ashurst knows that the av erage soldier will come out of the army without a Buffalo nickel to his •name, and that he'll have to buy a suit of civilian clothes to replace his uniform, under existing laws. So he has combined two objects in one bill which he has introduced in the Senate. It was the first bill intro duced at the December session pf con gress. Some Soldiers Prize, Some Need Uniforms. "It must be'obvious," said Senator Ashurst in explaining the purpose of his measure to me, "that every soldier highly prizes his uniform. Some are so circumstanced that they will want to wear their uniforms and save the expense of an extra suit of clothing after they are discharged. "Moreover, as the years go by and reviews are held, each ,- soldier will want to wear his uniform in parades. In September, 1915, I saw thousands of Union and Confederate veterans march up Pennsylvania avenue—the same avenue up which they,/ marched after the close of the Civil W.ar 60 years before—awd a few of them wore the same uniforms thye had worn in '65, which they treasured as priceless. „"The government can make nk use of discarded uniforms, and if it re tains them they will only be moth eaten and destroyed. "As to granting 90 d^ys Pl each soldier, sailor and marine after his discharge, we must not forget that we have taken these men out of/gain ful occupatitfns and have wrenched them from civilian life, and tney have BACH* Umber Up With PsMtraflag Hamlin's Wizard Oil A harmless and elective prepara tion to relieve the pains of Rheuma* tism, Sciatica, Lamfe Back and Lum bago is Hamlin's Wizard Oil It pen etrates quickly-, drives out soreness, and limbers up stiff acing joints and muscles.

"It will cost the United States $240,000,000 to grant our men this ex tra 90 days' pay, but the patriotism of the war that'while this sum of money the peoplg has been so well proved in secnts large, it will be cheerfully paid, in my judgment. It means only $2.40 per person for the 100,000,000 people in this country. "This payment, amounting to ap proximately $100 to a private, will give the soldier some meaiis on which to travel and replace himself in civil life.
