Karthaus, aged forty-two, formerly of Paris, died in Huntsville, Ala., recently, after a short illness of influenza. Mr. Kart haus was a native of Paris, where he was born in 1876, and was a cousin of Mr. Robert L. Frank and Mr. Julian Frank, of Paris, his mother and Mrs. L. Frank being sisters. Mr. Karthaus learned the trade of watch maker and jeweler with his father. who was for many years employed by A Shire, in Paris. After the J.

The National Jeweler, a trade publication in New York, devoted to the interest of the jewelers, sayB: "Pneumonia following an attack of influenza, resulted in the death of Ernest G. Karthaus, senior member of the firm of E. Karthaus' Sons, in I Huntsville, Ga., who died last Satur day after an illness of only a few days.

IMMHIHIIIIIMMMIIIIllHllllllltllllllllllMlltfc v M ygMMMHH What is the Red Cross part in the big national programfor the recon struction of disabled soldiers and sailors? With large casualty lists reported daily and many disabled men now returning from the Euro pean fronts, the question is being asked on all sides by interested Americans. A new Red Cross circular of in struction, entitled "Home Service and the Disabled Soldier and Sailor," summarizes the Red Cross relation ship to the rehabilitation program as follows: 1 To bring solidly behind the disabled man, at all stages of the re construction process, the moral sup port of his family. 2 To assist the men, through the competent legal advice at the com mand of chapter Home Service Sec tions, to secure the benefits- of the War Risk Insurance Law and especi ally the provisions for compensation and insurance. 3 - 3 To urge upon disabled men the wisdom and necessity of taking full advantage of the government's-plans for their care and training. 4 To encourage them in the early and critical stages of their vocational training and of their return to em ployment, when the struggle to over come the (mental and physical handi cap is most acute. 5 To bring about a reasonable and sympathetic attitude on the part of employers, "which shall give every handicapped man a real chance, while avoiding the danger of tempting him to forego the necessary training for the attention of an immediate, tempo rary or perhaps unsuitable jo"b. 6 To (mold public opinion so that it will frown upon trivial and de moralizing entertainment and hero worship, and maintain a constructive atttitude, while maintaining a square deal for the returned Tsoldier shall expect from him every reasona ble effort to insure his self-support. 7 To supply information, encour agement, legal, medical and business advice, when accpe table and neces-j sary, jus't as is being done for- the families of men at the front. A pretentious program, it is true, especially when it is taken into con sideration that, on the basis of Can ada's experience, 100,000 of each 1, 000,000 men will come back each year permanently incapacitated for military duty. But the American Red Cross, with its great financial resources, its 22, 000,000 members, its 3,900 chapters and their 15,000 branches, is better equipped than any other private or ganization to give aid and comfort to our soldiers and sailors and to assist their families at home. It approaches the position of a "committee of the whole of the American people." And it will be noted from the above that the Red Cross is purely an aux iliary factor, recognizing that the medical departments of the Army and Navy are wholly responsible for the physical and mental x reconstruction and that the total responsibility, by act of Congress, for the civil re-establishment rests entirely upon the Fed eral Board for Vocational Education. If the Home Service work now be ing done by chapters for the relatives of fighting men may be accepted as a criterion of what may be expected from the Red Cross in the reconstruc tion work, then the disabled man will again find in that institution a trusted, valuable helpmate.
