Returned Men May Take Places as
Effective Economic Units, Says
James P. Munroe.
"The day of letting such vast prob
lems as this of the returning disabled
sAldiers take care of themselves has
gone by," says James P. Munroe, of
Boston, chairman of the Federal
Board for Vocational Education.
, "Fortunately, too, the day of looking
upon them either as heroes who
should not work or as derelicts who
can not work has also passed; and
the Government has deliberately
expressed Its Intention to deal with
this problem sanely and from a busi
ness point of view. A certain num
ber of those injured in battle will be,
unfortunately, lost to society per
manently through insanity or other
total wrecking of their faculties, but
with the vast majority of these men
who have done so much for their
country there is no reason why they
should not do yet more, by taking
their places as effective economic
units, made far more effective, first
through the tremendous experience
on the battle front, and secondly,
through the provision which the Gov
ernment has made for their special
vocational or professional training.
"Broadened by his unique experi
ence, heartened by the wise and lib
eral attitude of the Federal Govern
ment, and braced on every side by
those normal workers who will be
proud to labor by his side, the re
habifated soldier or sailor will soon
forget that he has a handicap and
will add to his old laurels of war
service new laurels of daily efficiency
in the great forward- maroh toward
economic leadership that is to be
made by the United States, after, and
in large part in consequence of ,the
world-wide war."
Workers and Employers of' Dela
ware Eager to Adapt Themselves
to National Needs.
The response of the people of Dela
ware to America's Industrial call
.may be take nas typical of the spirit
of the Nation in this time of crisis.
Workmen, labor organizations, and
employers all have been eager to
cooperate with the community labor
boards in supplying war Industries
with labor fro mless essential work.
Cards have been sent to men en
gaged in less essential labor and to
their employers notifying them that
in the Interest of their country it
was important that they be shifted
to war work. The response has been
most gratifying.
For example, on the first day of
its activity Community Labor Board
No. 1 sent out 150 notices to men
in the less essential class of work.
Within 24 hours 6 o of the men called
at the main office o fthe United
States Employment Service in Wil
mington and were assigned to the
'shipyards, machine Shops ,t>r other
plants that had sent in requisitions
for men.
Thirty-ffive per cent of the jour
neymen barbers of Wilmington sum
mons dto report for essential work
have responded to a man.
Labor organizations summoned to
attend the meetings of the commun
ity labor'boards and show whether
their members were engaged In es
sential industry ave cheerfully ac
corded the cooperation asked.
The community labor board plan
is working in Delaware, because the
workers of Delaware are loyal to
their country in its hour of need.

Former Weaklings Now Have

Outdoor Work and Proper Food Make
Huskies of Them—Army Doctors
Continually on Watch for
Health of Men.
With the American Armies In
France.—Whether he used to be frail
or strong, the doughboy Is becoming
one of the huskiest chaps on this side
of the line. War agrees with the
American boy, judging from the solid,
healthy-looking specimens you see
trudging up and down the lines and
holding them.
It is a series of surprises you have
with the American army, continually
meeting some husky whom you hardly
recognize because back in the States
he was
"that frail little William
Under Uncle Sam's care he
has grown shoulders of a football
player, and he marches on a pair of
legs twice ns stout as they used to be,
and you couldn't call him William if
you had to—his only name is Bill, now
that he has joined the heavyweight
Despite the fears of the family for
the boy, it has done him good to join
up in Uncle Sam's army. His present
healthy condition is due to a- number
of causes, not the least of which is the
physical training he has undergone to
enable him to stand hardship. The chap
who couldn't take gymnasium at high
school because he had a weak heart
has become a doughboy who thinks
nothing of marching all night with a
pack on Ijis back and then standing
guard next day.
Strong as Blacksmiths.
Outdoor work almost continually
and being tired enough at the end of
the day to drop down and sleep any
where, has been just the thing to In
ure the boy to hardships. He is out
not only in summer when It is pleas
ant, but in rain and wind, and his life
has made him hard and rugged, and a
far better man physically than when
he came to France. Jogging up and
down roads on an artillery caisson, or
handling a huge truck, has £ven the
former drug clerk muscles like those
of the blacksmith's apprentice.
The kind of food he has had to eat
has been encouraging, too. Good solid
"chow," like beef, beans, potatoes and
bread, make man-power, and they
have lots of "chow" in the American
army. It is served up at regular in
tervals, and it builds muscles in the
soldier's arms and legs and makes him
have broader, better filled-out shoul
ders. They have dessert, too, In this
man's army, but instead of the pies
and cakes of peace days, It Is rice pud
ding, or canned fruit
r fhen the boy keeps pretty good hab
its with the army here in France, ex
cept for his night hours, which he be
comes accustomed to, and which he
makes up with sleep in the daylight
hours when Germans could see him if
he worked. The means of going even
on mild "tears" are not %t the dough
boy's disposal in the army, and any
way he Is too busy beating the Ger
mans to think about anything but his
work, a situation which is helpful to
his state of mltfd, as well as his body.
He la learning good living 1 and clean
habits in the army.
Doctors on Lookout
Then there are those army doctors
who are continually watching to nip
anything In the bud that might break
down health of the men. A good foot
ball team in training never averaged
higher in medical attention than Uncle
Sam's fighters. Inspection takes place
ever so often, and is careful. The men,
knowing they are entitled to treatment
freely, report sooner for attention,.
Dentists are far more popular than
they used to be, as well as doctors.
Even the chaps who are sent back
to hospitals gain by the deal, despite
the popular belief. By far the larger
number of men in hospitals have mere
ly temporary disabilities.
Tho army hospitals run on one basis,
that of making ^a man better for serv
ice than he was before. Of coarse
there are men who mast go back home
after* their hospital sojourns, but with
the exception of a few cases, they too
leave hospitals In healthier condition
than they were in when they joined
the army
The reason is this: Every means of
science is used freely to find out what
ails the doughboy who enters the hos
pital, and before he leaves every means
known to cure him has been tried.
There Is no question of cost or whether
or not he wants to take the treatment.
He gets it—which is important, say
physicians, since an enormous amount
of disability in civilians is allowed to
Increase, because of antipathy of many
people to medical treatment.
The soldier who arrives a*t a hos
pital is practically certain to get an
X-ray examination all over, unless his
trouble is n mere scratch and he is
all right otherwise. If anything alls
him, the medical men find it out, and
they go right after the ailment at once.
Thus the soldier who came in to get
his appendix removed may have his
lungs treated, his teeth fixed and his
deaf ear operated upon and made per
fect. He Is a decidedly better human
being for his hospital experience.
shell shock cured
Physicians Say Ailment Is "War
Man "Scared Stiff" Often Get Back
to Normal In Ten Min
With the American Armies in
France.—Shell shock Isn't shell shock
after all. It>war neurosis, so doctors
'have discovered.
That takes all the prestige and dis
tinction out of being shell-shocked, so
much so that a lot of people who know
about It won't even admit there's shell
shock anywhere. Here's why: ,
Were you ever surprised speechless
or scared stiff? Well, that's the same
thing going on within you as when you
have so-called shell shock. The fel
low who went time after time to pro
pose to his girl and couldn't mnke his
tongue work, had the same thing, only
on a smaller scale than they do at
the front.
These discoveries about what they
used to cali shell shock are interesting
and valuable, because they show that
the victim merely has lost control over
some faculty. He may stutter or his
head may shake or he may have the
trembles, but it's far from being in
• Just as the chap who wants to pro
pose finally gets his tongue and gets
the idea over to her, so the shell-shock
patient gets back to himself again.
Doctors got busy and figured out just
what ordinary shell shock Is. Nobody
Is scared of it any more, since it can
be cured, sometimes in less than ten
The best cure, it .seems, is to put
your mind on practical and concrete
work. Washing dishes, sawing a log,
or knitting sox would be good for shell
shock because they would give you
something you can * concentrate your
mind and hands upon.
In the 8hell-shock1)ospital they work
on manual training objects, making
toys, building boxes, boats or making
designs. , Anything one can concen
trate on Is good.
Just figuring out what the proposi
tion is has taken all the honor and
danger out of shell shock, and since
nobody's scared off It, everybody gets
well pretty quickly. Most of the boys
go right back to the trenches and nev
er get it again.

Gallantry of Crewa Shipping
Losses Have Been Confined
Largely to Freighters.
American Naval Base, France.—
American destroyers, aided by French
and British vessels, are battling with
the enemy submarines day and night
to keep open the lane through which
American troopshlps are bringing the
great army of American soldiers to
Hardly a day has passed during the
last month In which the American
naval convoy fleet has not had an en
counter with a submarine foe lurking
near the Bay of Biscay, beyond the
waters of Spgln and Portugal. August
was the month of greatest danger and
greatest vigilance, for the number of
American troops coming to France
reached its maximum in that month.
Keep Transport Lane Open.
Because of the unceasing watch,
never-ending readiness to pounce upon
the German submarines, and the gal
lantry of the men on board the Amer
ican and other destroyers, the ship
ping losses have been confined almost
exclusively to freight vessels,
steady arrival of American troops has
progressed uninterruptedly throughout
the period of chief menace. Most of
the vessels successfully' attacked by
submarines have been outward bound
from French ports.
Ten American destroyers took part
in one of the most successful subma
rine hunts on August 9. They were
heading south in column when the
leading destroyer sighted a periscope
on her port bow at 800 yards and gave
chase. The submarine submerged, but
the destroyer steamed ahead of her
and dropped two depth bombs in her
path and then let go 14 charges in a
circle. Suddenly the bow of the sub
marine emerged and became the tar
get for the shells of the destroyer. As
the submarine again submerged, ap
parently helpless, the destroyer passed
directly over her find dropped two
charges directly on her at a depth of
200 feet. Nothing further was seen of
the enemy, and It Is believed his craft
was completely destroyed.
Another encounter followed a sub
marine attack on a big American re
pair ship entering port here. The sub
marine's torpedo, fired at close range,
just missed the rudder of the Ameri
can vessel. An American destroyer
dashed to the attack and dropped a
barrage of depth charges. A streak of
oil came to the surface, Indicating that
the submarine was following a zigzag
Destroyed by Depth Charge.
Another destroyer and several sub
marine chasers Joined in the hunt,
dropping depth charges on oil patches
along the route. It Is believed the sub
marine was damaged and that several
days later It was destroyed by a depth
Unusual activity was displayed by
the submarines In the Bay of Biscay
for two days on August 15 and 16. One
American destroyer reported that she
had destroyed or damaged a large en
emy submarine on August 15. Bnt the
same day three American freighters
were attacked and two of them, the
Montanan and Cubore, were sunk.
More thah 450 of the crew of the
French cruiser Du Petit Thouars were
rescued by American destroyers when
she was torpedoed on August 8 , elicit
ing a note of thanks from French naval
authorities to the American naval com
mander. Highest tribute was paid by
the American naval commander in
France to American, French, and Brit

into port the American freight steam
