THE PENSACOLA JOURNAL. SUNDAY MORNING, JULY 6. 1919.
NINE REASONS FOR PREFERENCE v EX-SEVICE HEN Colonel Arthur Woods, assistant to the secretary of war. of the war de partment, who is endeavoring to cor relate all the existing agencies to find employment for the ex-service man, advances the following nine reasons why an employer should give prefer ence to an ex-service man: The present lull in our industries was caused by the readjustment pre saging the period of reconstruction which our country Is now facing. Our industries, once shaped back to a peace basis will be called upon to produce in greater quantities than it ver had. Every machine in the land Will have to be run to its full ca pacity to help restores the world to a peace basis. Our industrial army will have to' be greater than our war army was, to help secure the peace which we helped wrest from a war mad Germany. Roughly speaking, there are about 20,000,000 wage earners in the United States, and out of this number, 4, 000,000, one-fifth, were taken out and mobilized for the different branches of our army. This army is now be ing demobilized at the. rate of 10.000 . day and they must be reabsorbed by "ur different industries. 1. Because he is an ex-soldier. lie was loyal to us in war times. We have to be loyal to him during the peace times he has won for us. 12. Because he is physically a bet ter man. LJfe in the army has hard ened his muscles and given them en durance. 3. Because he is a 100 per cent man and he will give you 100 per cent ser vice. Efficiency will be the greatest asset in our coming industrial life. Every man and every r. -nine will have to work at a 100 per cent ca pacity. Two hundred million days a year are lost to our industries through sickness alone. If your factory is to run to its full capacity, you must em ploy healthy workers. The returning soldiers are the cream of the health of our nation. 4. Because many of the skilled men that entered our army were put to work, each at his particular trade, and have developed their skill to the highest efficiency. 5. Because the ex-service man has learned to obey. And because to obey orders has become second nature with him, he will perform his work to the best of his ability without grumbling. S. Because he is mentally a better man. No man could ave gone through what our daugboys went through without .becoming a better man. Remember that they have faced death. The long marches have. taken out the fchiftness of youth. jEvery ex service man is a steady man. , 7. Because you must help ex-service man restore himself financially. He must not be allowed to feel that you are not doing unto him as lie did unto you. Practically each one of them has to start life anew, finan cially. 8. Because work for all ex-soldiers means industrial peace to our coun try. 9. Because every ex-service man is a man, a full sized, red blooded, two fUted man, a real American. AMERICA'S TRIBUTE AT PARIS EVENTS PAID BY WALLACE Paris. July 5. America's tribute to La Fayette was paid on the Fourth of July, by Hugh C. Wallace. American ambassador to France, who laid a wreath on the tomb of the French hero. Ambassador Wallace said: "I stand here today where so many Americans have stood before me and in reverence and devotion place a wreath upon the grave of LaFayette. The act itself is simple but I could do nothing more perfectly representa tive of American sentiments. It is as if my country stretched her hand acrof-s the sea and set a loving tribute befoi- the shrine of our best friend. "It is most fitting that we should come to France and seek out the rest ing place of LaFayette. Of all great Frenchmen, he Is best known to us. "better known in America Indeed than he is in France. He is but one of your heroes. To us he ts the knight in shining armour who came in the hour of darkness to help us in our (need. No child is born among us, but learns to link his name with Washing ton's and in manhood, he revers the hero of his youth. "When our armies came across the ocean to defend the liberty that France herself had won, they but sought to repay a sacred debt; yet the debt re mains a joyful burden and a bond of union for all time between two great peoples. " "As we now greet a world at peace, we note that the corner stone of the freedom which has come to Europe is the example which was set in nerica long years ago. It Is the new evangel, and as La Fayette beheld it then, so now we raise it where all man kind may see it." revolution in Lima brought no further details, and in fact failed to corrobo rate the message from Peru. Such in quiries were made in New York, in Washington and direct to Peru and brought forth nothing but indications that the Lima dispatch was exaggerated. STRIKE OF PHONE OPERATORS IN THE SOUTH THREATENED Louisville, Ky., July 5. Joseph Tyons of Chicago, general representa tive of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, who is in Louis ville in connection with a strike of ap proximately 400 telephone workers, is sued a statement today asserting that steps are being taken to call a strike in telephone exchanges in the south. Mr. Lyons' statement seemed to be directed especially at the Bell interests which he charged had been unfair to its employes. Primarily Lyons said, the seat of the whole trouble was due to what he characterized as arbitrary methods of Postmaster General Burleson. CONDITION OF UNION GRIMLAR VERY CRITICAL Although the condition of Union Cimler, the man who was seriously stabbed about the chest and abdomen Wednesday night, in the community in which he lives, eight miles south of Atmore, Ala., and near Walnut Hill, is said to be grave and little hope is held out for his recovery. Re ports to the effect that he had died, circulated yesterday, were pronounced early last night as unfounded by Dep uty Sheriff W. T. Bowman, who is re lated to the family. Henry Cheatham, the young man of the same community, who is alleged to have stabbed Mr. Grimlar when the two men met in the road, is still held in the county Jail here awaiting further developments in Grlmlar's condition. The latter is well known in the county and both men liave many friends who greatly regret the affair. GOVERNMENT HEADS IN PERU JAILED AT START REVOLUTION Lima. Peru, July 5. A revolution broke out here at 3 o'clock this morn ing. President Pardq and the members of hi cabinet were imprisoned. General A. A. Caceres. former pres ident was in charge of the revolution ary coup. Later in the morning he turned over control of affairs to Au gusto B. Leguisa, the president-elect.
