SWithin the next tw monts #everar thousand disabled men will be train ing under jurisdiction of the federai board and at the expense of the gov ernment. Those who had been actual ly placed in training were taking courses in a wide range of trades and professions, including 27 different oc cupations. Industrial schools, colleges, offices and shops throughout the coun try are being utilized so that most of the men are being trained close to their own homes. Thirty-one per cent of the total r.,,v in training are taking commercial courses, 17 per cent are learning the various phases of agricul ture, farm management, poultry rais ing, dairying, etc. Others are studying law2 medicine, banking, and some are being trained in engineering, teleg raphy, tailoring, window trimming and designing, accounting, store manage ment, machin_::hop practice, meat i) spection and traffic management. Every sold er or sailor enlisted, in ducted, or drafted into the military or naval service of the United States who is suffering from disability not due to his own wil:ful misconduct may be en titled to compensation under the war insurance act. It is his duty to pre sent his claim for such compensation in order that it may be passed upon by the bureau of war risk insurance. He can procure full information by applying to the war risk insurance of icer at the camp or cantonment, from whom he may get bureau of war risk insurance form 526, which he must fill out In order to prove his eligibility fon such compensation. Government Pays Cos If it is not possible to get in contact with this war risk insurance officer, the soldier or sailor should call upon or write the bureau of war risk insur ance at Washington, stating his case; or he should call on or write the dis trict office of the federal board for vocational education in which he is lo cated. If the soldier or sailor is suffering from a disability, he is also eligible for help by the federal board for voca tional education in securing employ ment, which help will be given him in co-operation with the employment service of the department of labor. If he is eligible for compensation under the war risk insurance act, he is also entitled to training and placement by the federal board for vocational edu cation, provided he is mot able to fol low lii old occupation successfully without training or needs to be trained for some new and suitable occupation for which training is feasible. The federal board for voc.tional education will bear the entire cost of the mank training.

The Red Cross is undertaking 4b see that every discharged soldier or sailor coming to its attention is fully in formed as to his rights to compensai tion and insurance, and gives assist ance in making application foe it When the arrangements for tralninn have been made, the Red Cross is pre pared to see that the family receivr supplementary assistance or service which may be needed in addition to the provision made by the government. Since, under the law, the taking of vo cational training is entirely optional with the man, and his own will and ambition must first be enlisted in or der to Insure success, the influence of the family may be a vital facto. Whether a man receives compensa tion for disability or not, whether he receives re-education or not, the board is ready to help him get a good job. If he is entitled to compensation and goes into training, when his training is finished the board will undertake to find him a place in his new vocation. All disabled soldiers whether in or out of the hospitals, should address their communications to the federal board for vocational education, Wash ington, or to the district office of the fedetal board of the district in which he is located.
