CHURCH ANNOUNCEMENTS Isv v y J Dear Mr. Blue : I am much in terested in your article, "Wound ed Soldiers Must Be Taught Voca tion for Post War Work", appear ing iii your Nov. 7th issue and give it my unqualified endorse ment. The article, however, refers en tirely to wounded soldibrs with no reference to those of our boys re turning in good health, but minus employment, with the expectancy of returning to their old positions which in; nearly every instance they may find filled. Let me first discuss your article "Wounded Soldiers" etc. . Co-incident with reading your article, I received from Washing ton a pamphlet "The Vocational Summary" . containing many articles on the rehabilitation of disabled soldiers and sailors, giv ing the government plan for their re-education and it may be inter esting to your readers to quote from several of these articles and follow with reference to those boys sound in wind and limb, but jobless. The Federal Board for Vocational Education charged by the government with the duty of re-educating the maimed men has in each hospital a "Vocational Ad viser", a man of broad general educational information regarding trades, businesses, professions, etc. When it appears that a man has been injured so badly that he will not . be able to return to his former occupa tion, the vocational adviser goes over the situation with him regarding his wishes and what is best for him in the way of free retraining the government will provide. This is entirely optional with the injured man. He may take it or leave it, but everjr argument is made to get him to consent to be made fit to earn a living in addition to his Government pension. Should he elect to take a course of re-education on account of his dis ability, durintr the course he is sup ported by an advance from the War Kisk insurance Hureau. His allot ments or allowances are continued dur ing his' period of training precisely as if he were in the service,. He is sent to a scnooj, college or tecnnoiogicai in stitution, with the exceptional advan tages in taking the particular course he has chosen. There is no set time to complete his course. The only discipline he is subject to is that fail ure to attend classes while in training without reasonable excuse is to be dealt on the same basis as it woull be in civil life, where failure to work would result in deduction from his pay as the Federal Board tnkes the po sition that under the re-educating act the man is being paid for taking train ing. If it appears that he is not prof iting, or is not interested, or that he cannot take the source successfully, and is not interested in taking any other course, he will be discharged promptly from the class. Thereupon he falls back upon his compensation under the war risk insurance act for his injury, and has this-vpension alone ,to support him. For the man who completes his course the government will undertake to find an employer, or if he prefers to (Continued on page 8.) Itching piles provoke profanity, but profanity won't remove them.

We welcome Following is taken from a letter from Langdon Walbridge to ins wife in Perrysburg: The Front, Oct. 18. 1918. The last few days have been lucky for me in the, mail line, about 20 letters in a week, but of course before that had not heard from anyone for a month. I am now a night switch-board operator and have been taken off the line work for the present. Am working the telephone switch-board at night and sleep during the day. Have moved from my last quarters at the old fort and am now in a shell swept village, noth ing left but cellars and these are made into dugouts, and wp are pretty comfortable as we have bunks to sleep in and also have stoves,. My work on the telephone detail is very interesting and was espe cially so as a lineman, as it took mo ,out at any time and sometimes right to the trenches. When Fritz starts shelling you don't know at what time you'll be called out to repair your line, and under all kinds of conditions. As that is over now and I am an inside man, am ,glad in a way, as it was dirty weather and mud galore. The other day we had to go out and lay a line in the face of a bar rage and it was hot work for a while, but we got it layed and all back-safe and sound. I saw some awful sights in the way of wounded that day and it will last me for a long time. In regard to gas masks, have had use for one a number of times since arriving here, but not for long stretches. Got mixed up with some sneezing gas the other day, not strong enough for masks, but enough to make me sneeze my head Off all morning and ruin my one and only handkercluef. The Ger ,mans throw this gas before a mus tard gas attach so that you will re move your masks to sneeze and ithen it is "good night." In lookmg back at St. Malo de Philly I realize we were have noth ing more than a summer vacation, and yvi all have wished many times we were back in the warm sun shine. I dont know how much longer we remain here at tho front but I guess until the war is over, and that looks pretty-soon. It is funny to read the views the officers have of France, but wait until I can tell you how a buck private sees France when I get home. It's not all peaches and cream bya d sight and we don't seo the wonderful side either. It certainly is not soft at the front from what .1 see around me here as it's work like h and sleep when you can everyone is doing it. Wish you could have seen Ed Mc Nishol the other day, he didn't look the spick and span he used to, but pretty muddy and tired. Guess these 24-hour hikes and moves had something to do with it. I hope we are here now for the end and no more moving. The other day saw a batch of prisoners just fresh from the scrap gathered around a mess kitchen eating the sour bread, happy as larks because they were captured ana tne war was over tor tnem. i can imagine what a hell thoy have had and now it's all rosy again. Back at Coetquiden there was a case that shows how we treat pris oners. A German corporal prison er escaped and nothing was heard from him for a long time. Finally ho showed up with his brother, who ho got to desert from the German army and both cumo back together. He said it was bo much better where he was and tho war was lost that he wanted his brother to begin living again. Regards to being home for Xmas, that's the talk here and I'm begin ning to believe it, too from all out (Continued on pago-8.) Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. Do not imagine that because other cough medicines failed to give you re lief that it will bo tho same with Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. Bear in mind that from a small beginning this 'remedy has gained a world wide reputation and immense sale. A med icine must have exceptional merit to win; esteem wherever it becomes, known.

A fund known as "The Recon struction Fund" has been set aside by the Red Cross auxiliary, to be used to aid helpless, crippled and afflicted; soldiers of Perrys burg and Perrysburg township, after the war. This is a most worthy cause and should be helped by everyone in the com munity. The quota of boxes for homeless boys has been met. Sixty-two boxes were filled in Perrysburg and many more could have been filled. The labels from our boys over seas are coming in slowly. It is hoped all will be in by November 30. The time for receiving labels has been extended from Novem ,ber 20 to November 30. The civic rooms are open daily to receive labels from 10 a. m. to 5 p. m., ex7 cept Thanksgiving Day. Friends who have taken out Red Cross boxes to fill for the soldiers should return them as soon as pos sible in order that thoy may be on the way to ensure reaching the boys by Christmas. Don't delay. Do it now if possible. Instructions have been received from headquarters as follows : The making of surgical dress (Continued on Eighth Page.) 1 A SERVICE TO THE NATION. Saving is no longer only a personal or family matter it is a service to tho nation. The war has shown everyone that, there is only so much wheat, meat or wool in the world and that by wasting these things someone ia obliged to go without them. It is the same with all material re sources. Every dollar deposited in this bank goes to build up bnsiness and prosperity for all. (She (iltetx&$mkxt$www PERRYSBURG,OHIO. CAPITAL STOCK fSO,OOO.QO l iwt.uj irwago V m , Last Monday evening at the timo of closing the United War Work Fund Campaign the committee, in charge ' announced that Eerryaburg township was' in tho neighborhood of S3000.00 Bhort of its quota o $7000.00. This report is very dis appointing' and does not measure up to the township's usual record on war work and if the quota is not reached it will not reflect much credit upon this community which has had, all during the war, an en viable reputation for loyalty and patriotism. We are of opinion that there are a large number of people in the town and township who do not want to see the township's good re cord and name spoiled at this time when we are all happy over the're turn of victorious Peace to our be loved country. And who will vol untarily make another donation to this very worthy fund? For that reason the County committee have consented to let the local committee withhold their final report until Monday evening Nov. 25th. Every one interested in seeing our town ship maintain its good name and record can make additional contri butions to their respective solictors There will be another meeting of the solictors Friday evening, Nov. 22nd and we sincerely hope the re port at that time will be more sat isfactory. Perrysburg township (taxable val uation is nearly $7,000,000 and there is absolutely no reoson why we- should not at leapt raise the amount of our quota. At this writ ing 14 townships in Wood County have exceeded their quota. Bowl ing Green has gone way over and we appeal to every loyal and patrio tic citizen of the community to "step up" and by additional con tributions place Perrysburg town ship on the honor list where she should be. Your boys in the. service would resent it if you did not do your share. Lot us aU'como clean. It is up to you Mr. Patriotic Citizen. Lets put her "over the top."
