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

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
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

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
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."
