ATHLETIC, MEET OF
SERVICE MEN ON
Plans have been completed for the
stupendous athletic meet beingr pro
moted for the army and navy men of
the aoutheastern department. Prac
tically every branch of the service will
b represented and the events will
be "one of the most gigantic affairs
to be one of the most gigantic affairs
of its kind ever attempted. Keen in
terest is apparent. A number of fa
mous athletes will take part and many
new stars recently discovered amonjr
the army and navy forces will com
pete. Men detailed for the purpose aro
isrinr out straight awavs. mile and
half mile courses, building- jumping
pita and stakink off athletic fields.
Committee, referees, judges, timers,
starters, "etc.. have been appointed and
are arranging to handle the vast num
ber of entries that are coming in.
Athletics are being , given an in
creasingly more prominent place in
the training of the men in the ser
vice. Their value is being appreciated
and the "machinery" to handle large
bodies of men in athletic competition
i3 fast being developed. At Camp
Wheeler recently over seven thousand
men took part in competitive games
and athletic events, the. program run
ning less than three hours.
Individual prizes are being offered
in the 60-yard dash. 100-yard dash,
220-yard dash. 1 mile run, 1-2 mils
run, running broad jump, running high
jump. Frizes will be awarded each
member of the winning team in sema
phore signalling, litter bearers' race
and relay race.
The regiment or company unit win
ning the greatest number of points
will receive a trophy.
By comparison of records, the camp
wlnnin this meet will be determined
and will be given recognition. Smaller
camps as' well as those where thou
sands are stationed, have equal
chances of winning the meet except
that they have fewer men to draw
from. This disadvantage, however, is
offset in the smaller places, as they
have comparatively more trained
athletes, as most of the men in the
aviation and officers' training camps
have had athletic experience.
More than one hundred T. M. C. A
physical directors and a large num
ber of athletic officers are putting in
their time planning the details and
taking care of every matter which
will make this "Victory Athletic Meet"
on the Fourth of July Independence
Day a glorious success, providing a
program in which thousands will take
part and tens of thousands will be
This meet has the endorsement of
tha high military authorities and is
just, another ptep.in the development
of a national athletic program that
has its 'part in promoting military ef
ficiency. Most of the training camps will be
open to visitors on this day and the
people of the cities and towns near
the camps will witness the activities.

COEAT WAR ENDS
London. June 30. Although the end
of the war may be far distant, plans
for mobilizing the British army, when
the proper time arives, are well under
way. The military authorities, acting
in conjunction with the ministry of
labor, are perfecting the scheme by
which the soldiers will be returned. to
civil life with the utmost celerity, and
at a camp not far from London there
has already been a rehearsal of the
methods to be adopted for dispersing
"Big as was the job to get men into
the army," said an officer engaged in
the work, "it will he a bigger job to
get . them out of it. But the country
may be sure that everything will be
done to enable the soldiers to reach
their homes and get employment with
the minimum friction."
The scheme is far-reaching. The au
thorities hajve had to consider not only
the situation at home but also how
the plan will. fit in with the conven
ience of France. Italy and the overseas
dominions, and with transport facili
ties from Saloniki, Meswtx5tanrIaTiPab
estine and from btheiK parts of the
world. How long it will take to de
mobilize the millions of troops is a
question to which even those occupied
in the task are not prepared to give a
Eighteen dispersal depots are to hs
established in England, Scotland and
Wales. Every step has been worked
out in detail. Before the men in
Prance are ordered home, they will be
asembled in the order of the districts
from which they came, so that all may
be sent in a body direct to the dis
persal depot closest to the locality
from which they joined the army.
Each man will take with him his en
tire kit, including his arms and per
sonal equipment, steel helmet and box
respirator. Previously he will have
been deprived of his ammunition.
On reaching the dispersal stations
the men will hand over their equip
ment. Everything must be given up
except the uniform which the soldier
is wearing, and his great coat, al
though the coat must be returned after
the month's furlough to which each
man will be entitled. He will be per
mitted to retain his uniform.
The soldier will pass through sev
eral huts before he is sent on furlough.
In one he will be given a protection
certificate, containing all particulars
regarding his regiment, length of ser
vice and destination. In another he
will be given an advance on the pay
still due him and postoffice money or
ders in three equal installments for
the i remainder. i
On application, the soldier will be
presented with an "out-of-work" in
surance policy, valid for a year. This
will entitle him to receive a fixed
sum for a definite period from a post
officer, If unemployed.
reStBES IN THE LONG RUN ttfAWl
THE trench, which always encircled the Roman cas
tra, or camp, was brought to France by Julius Caes ar
and used by him on the very battlefield where to-day
the Allies and the Huns have 25,000 miles of trenches.
With! rings of trenches, gradually drawn smaller,
Frobably the first modern trench warfare, the Turks in
667 took Candia.
Vauban, builder of Verdun, in 1673 employed the
first parallel trenches, the system of the present war.
Defeat, not foresight, turned the Germans to trench
warfare. But Goodrich never had to dig in.
Since twenty-two years ago Goodrich manufactured
the first American pneumatic automobile tire. Goodrich
has driven ahead to the big, graceful, masterful

Washington, June 29. Every man
who goes in the army or navy is now
certain that If the Germans "shoot
him up" he will not be compelled to
sell pencils, or shoe laces to eke out
an insufficient pension, or be im
mured in a soldiers' home to rush out
the years until death comes to his re
lief. The United States government has
studied the whole subject of vocational
rehabilitation of wounded and dis
abled soldiers. The experience of all
the belligerents has been gone over
carefully and the marvels of re-vocational
education accomplished by some
of them are fully noted and the federal
board f or . vocational education has
been at work on the proposition Since
August, 1917.,The result is the Smith
Sears act, tahich passed congress June
11. and provides a comprehensive
scheme of rehabilitation for wounded
and disabled men.
Canada has been doing this work
with great success and all of the Can
adian experience has been freely given
to the United States. The director of
that work has been actively cooperat
'rfigwith the federal board for voca
tlonalXewdmation and was sent by his
government to appear before the sen
ate committee and testify at the bear
ings of the bill, which passed both
senate and house without a dissenting
It has been demonstrated in Canade
and Europe that no matter how bad
ly a man may be wrecked physically,
as a generality he still has latent cap
abilities for something useful. If those
capabilities may be specialized Into
some line of trade the wounded sol
dier already knew, that is done. The
experience he has had and his knowl
edge of the trade is a valuable foun
dation to build upon.
If the trade he is familiar with does
not offer an opening then he is in
duced to enter an allied trade wheae
his previous knowledge will be of
value. In some cases the man is en
tirely re-educated and for an occupa
tion entirely different from that which
he had previously followed.
It is seldom that a man is so badly
shattered that he cannot be trained ,to
something useful, which he can pur
sue in the consciousness that he is do
ing a man's work for a man's pay and
that he is back in the current of civil
life, a useful and happy citizen who
asks no odds of anyone when it come?
to making a living.
The task to be discharged by the
federal board of vocational education
is a large one. Figures from the var
ious countries show that for each mil
lion! men in the armies, there will be
one per cent, or ten thousand men, to
be re-educated. This does not include
the wounded who . are able to and
eventually do return to their occupa
tions. This does not necessarily mean that

these are "dismemberment" cases. The
general Idea is of the legless, armless
or sightless man. They are far in the
minority. The figures, which have now
got down to fairly accurate averages,
show that of the 10,000 half of them
will be purely "medical" as against
"surgical" cases. And of the 8,000 that
are "surgical," that is, which need the
attention of a surgeon as against a
physician, 500 will be cases of dismem
berment, which the men have lost
members of the body. Three hundred
will be cases where a leg has been
lost and two hundred where arms have
been lost. In 41,000 returned invalided
Canadians there were less than forty
cases of blindness.
The real problem is the man who
has suffered profound shocks to his
system and perhaps been rendered in
capable of standing the strain of his
former occupation. A boiler maker,
for instance, comes out with shell
shock and his nervous System in tat
ters. He could not stand the racket
in a boiler factory, but he. with his
knowledge of iron and steel working
could very easily be made into say an
expert lathe operator where there is
no noise. And so on along the whole
line of readjustments.
The federal board for vocational ed
ucation is the source of most of the
war training courses and is going
ahead with plans to begin the re-educational
work at an early date. It is
proposed instead of concentrating the
men to be re-educated in large hospital-shops,
to use the wonderful facili
ties afforded by the many technical
and agricultural schools of the coun
try as far as possible. "
HEAVY GERMAN LOSSES

been learned that the seventh German
