Re usons Given for Continuance State and County Councils of Defense. Now that the war Is over and we are on the eve of the world's most import ant peace conference, there apiiears to be a general impression that all war Hj-vneies should lot down, allowing the country to drift back Into normal con ditions without interference from those restrictions made necessary while this country was engaged in the conflict. This reasoning Is no more than natur al Yet it has its dangerous side. It is true that the war is over, hut it Is likewise true that conditions following tlie sudden ending arc shifting and un Tlie after-war work is looked H]MHi as almost fully as Important as tlic activities necessary during the war It would Is- deplorable for disintegra tion to follow In all organizations pri arllv built up to stiffen the second line (if defense, states the Official Bul letin published by the State Council of Defense. Already there Is developing hi the •mbarrassing situa certain. mi various states all which may become acute unless j Men who have tani quick action is taken, tx-cn in various branches of the service or in cantonments, or who engaged in war industries, are re turning to their homes. Many of them need work immediately. Others will want it shortly. Can any state |ter mit them to remain idle? This situa tion alone should justify the existent», cf our war organizations. Released from.strict discipline these men must lie protected against abandon and de moralization. Everything that was ]m>.sil>lc was done for them when they joined the colors. They have the right to the same treatment now that they have been hotn rablv discharged. The government has more tinancial drives in sight. There is a big task ahead hi gathering and pre|«iring i»o litleal history. Americanization offers a problem that the liest minds can well afford to study. A new era is to open iqi with new problems, it would be folly indcxl. to let down now and re turn to selflshnesg and waste. Secretary of War Baker and Frank lin K. Lane, secretary of the interior, in recent addresses liefere the govern ors' conference, plainly showed the ne cessity of keeping the state and coun ty councils from disintegrating. They favor their continuance until such timi overseas were as the Council of National Defense de cides their services are no longer need ed. Idaho's council has been main tained at a cost that seems almost Im possible, or approximately $20,000 all told. It will follow the dictates of the government heads and continue to hold its organization intact. Secretary of War on Labor. The State Council of Defense is in receipt of the following message from Secretary of War Baker: "Re-employment of discharged sold iers. sailors and war workers released from war industries is one of (lie most important tasks now tieforo the t r.v. where surplus of labor exists all pub lic improvements tic advanced in or der to absorb labor.
