After the signing ot the armistice people dreamed of a great transforma tion of personal habits and of social or ganization, and they were annoyed that "Id ways of living were re-asscrtins themselves.

When one eels down to morale of today, it seems that the the V tone ot tne average citizen is more earn est, chastened and modest. "We have all seen a great change fnn our old method of living, but 1 want to ask you as fair minded people. Isn't it belter to make the very best of things as they are with good inten tion and asmile, than to ipiibble at the government, the ollicials of our dif ferent departments or the bosses of our jobs? Is it not our share of the war to buckle down to hard pan and do the very best that we can with what we have? "Is there no satisfaction derived from the fact that our own teace, as imper fect as it is, is something far re moved from the kind of peace" that Ger many would have imposed? Do not think that our country could issue out of such a tempest into a simple and placid peace. We should never try to solve such a problem as we are faced with-today, permanently. The wise are content to dear up a situation as it presents itself. Thev are glad to have enough light to walk by and enough truth to live by. l.rattleboro has not felt hard times as tle bigger cities have, but even hen Tilings are changed materially. Wages have dropped, and are bound to drop more. Our merchants have hd to take big losses. Vfe all must expect -it. Take it like American men and women and feel that it is your share of restoring peace just as much as we" worked for the war, feeling it was our share indi vidually to help win. "And in this connection perhaps a word to the employer and employe would not be out of place. The em ployer must know conditions under which employes live to properly under stand the worker and his point of view. The employe should have some knowl edge of the trials antl misfortunes of business to appreciate tb , attitude of the man w ho pays him his wages. 'The crying need in our industry to day is for both factions to get away froi the idea of carrying out their de mands by force or -refusal to employ, and. get down to the basic luinciole of treating one another like fellow human beings working together with a common end in viewi for the upbuilding of a na tion. tf'frfy the rule be a more human atti ihI" and spirit of good fellowship and fairness between the two, and the in dustrial unrest now rampant through out our land will soon fale away, lie- member please that we are all workers, regardless or our station m lite, and the one who does ins vuik lauinuiiy ana well, whether in war or in peace, con tributing his just share to the morale of n nation that has no equal.
