PROBLEM BEFORE ENGLAND
Turning Millions of Soldiers Back to
Civil life Will be l>one by Degrees
Will Get Job and Man Together.
LONDON.—The British govern
ment has completed its basic plans
for demobilization of the army and
providing employment for the man
whose sole business for four years
has been war. It is calculated that
60 per cent of the men in the army
will go back to their old jobs or have
new ones awaiting them, but taking
care of the remainder even though
every ounce of man-power will be
needed after the war, presents a
most difficult problem.
It will be a long tedious task to
transform millions of men from
khaki to civil life and must be done
by degrees. By the plan agreed upon
these degrees have been fixed upon
the needs of industry with certain
consideration being given to mar
ried men or those who may other
wise be needed in the home.
Record of Each Man Kept
The government has a record of
what each man is best fitted for in
civil life. The ministry of public
service which has efficiently compiled
thiB data has, together with other
official agencies, prepared a list of
necesary industries in the order of
what is deemed their importance.
The first few are called "key" trades,
many of which prduce materials
needed for use in other trades. The
idea is that it would be useless to
release a lot of structural steel work
ers ahead of the men who produce
steel. The trades list is complete,
but will not be announced because of
controversies it might arouse.
The fact that a man has a job
awaiting him will not insure his

it cannot handle more than half the

Rail Workers and Miners Wanted
It is reasonable to suppose that
railway workmen, if not heading the
,"key" list, are very close to the top
of it and also that miners are well
; up. It is vitally necessary to demob

in running order and the miners are
needed to increase the fuel supply for
industries and home comfort. And

When a man has been selected for
discharge he will be sent to a col

course will be in France. He will
then be sent to a distributing camp
in England, where he will receive
his allowance for civilian clothing.
He will be given a month's furlough
•which will mean that he will be on
army pay while getting located in

ister of labor assumes charge. He
will have the aid and co-operation
of local employers, associations and
labor unions. Already long lists of
jobs open to soldiers have been pre
pared. It remains tfor the govern
ment, employers and unions to get
the job and the man together.

education, at least there will be no
specific rules set forth to that effect
by the state board. This matter will
be left to the counties and various
school units of the state. It may be
impossible to extend the time In any
county owing to the budget owing to
the fact that teachers' salaries are
going on just the same as if they
were teaching during the close down.
If the time of keeping the schools
open were extended it would re
quire additional funds for salaries,
so it is quite likely that the schools
.will work harder than usual during
the time they are open and close
down at the usual time in the spring.

WHY DON'T YOU WRITE?

take off the longing the soldier feels
for letters from folks at home. If
you haven't time to write, the editor
will take time. But send the ad

where in the service. The new regu
