It is at the request of numerous peo
ple who heard the sermon delivered last
Sunday by the Rev, Wayne Snoddy,
pastor of the Presbyterian church in
this city, that we publish the same in
another column of today's paper. It
is a good discourse on the subject
treated and the Star-Mirror is pleas
ed to give it this additional publicity.

The Star-Mirror is in receipt of a
communication signed "Subscriber,"
in which a serious accusation is made
against a citizen of Moscow who,
among other things, is charged with
hypocritical motives in certain quasi
public actions. We desire to inform
this individual that if he or she will
stand sponsor for the assertions made
in the communication by. sending in
the name, not for publication, but as
a matter of justice to the accused,
which no honest individual with good
motives can refuse, we shall go into
the subject matter of the accusations
far enough to satisfy the most ardent
stickler for the letter of the law.

VOCATIONAL TRAINING FOR
The last number of the Vocational
Summary, a monthly publication of
the Federal Board of Vocational Edu
cation, at Washington, D. C., contains
the following suggestions regarding
the importance of vocational training
in connection with the future happi
ness and welfare of all soldiers and
sailors who have been disabled dur
ing the war:
abled soldier or sailor boy hurry
home from the hospital if you thought
his coming would impair his physical
healthfulness in the future years of
"Would you ask him to stay at
home under your loving care, if you
could foresee that he would become
despondent and unhappy because of
his helplessness after a few years of
"Would you advise him to take a
job at high wages now when there is
a great demand for labor, and cause
him to face the time when he will be
discharged because more physically
fit men will take his place and there
are no jobs for the untrained ?
every disabled soldier and sailor can
protect his future happiness and in
dependence—by choosing a suitable
occupation and taking advantage of
the vocational training offered by the
United States Government. Much de
pends upon the advice tmd encourage
ment of the friends and families of
the disabled man as to whether he
elects to take the free course in train
ing. It is a duty you owe to him, to
insist that he prepare for his future
by taking a thoroughgoing course in
training for his chosen occupation.
"Through the Federal Board for
Vocational Education the Govern
ment offers to restore the self-sup
porting activity of every man dis
abled while in the military or naval
service of the United States.
"Vocational training for a new oc
cupation, or retraining to better fit
him for his former occupation, will
be provided at the expense of the Gov
ernment at the option of any man
'whose disability entitles him to com
pensation under the war-risk insur
ance act. Regardless of whether the
man was disabled in this country or
on the battle fields of Europe or the
nature of his disability he will be
given every consideration, and will be
re-established in civilian life through
the efforts of the Federal Board for
"The future usefulness and happi
ness of the disabled man depend upon
his decision to take advantage of the
offer of the Government to give him
training. It is the duty of the friend
and family to help him to make this
decision definitely and quickly."

abled soldiers or sailors should do to

At Versailles sits a company of
world notables. They are there for
the great Peace Conference which oc
cupies in these days well nigh the
whole stage of human thought. The
original members of that notable
body are one hundred and thirty-five
in number, representing twenty-seven
nations. Representatives of perhaps
twenty other nations have been added
to the original group. I suppose there
has never been another such gather
ing of the world's great. Men of
outstanding world leadership will out
line the policies, draft the plans and
control the issues of this conference
which is the first attempt to register
in political codes the unity of the i
human race. Never before has a
single group of men held so closely
the thought and attention of mankind.
The days of the Peace Conference are
days of destiny for we somehow feel i
that they will determine the future
The chief actors in this world

with unique interest. Balfour, Lloyd
George, Northcliffe, Clemenceau, Fer
dinand Foch, Woodrow Wilson—these
are household words spoken at every
fireside. Balfour is the embodiment
of aristocratic England. His is per

, . . .
Lloyd George, the prime minister
of England, seems a miracle of créa
tive energy. He is the best public
speaker in England. His epigrams
sparkle like diamonds and his argu
ments fall with the weight of thunder
bolts. He has courage, intellect, im
agination, enthusiasm, sincerity, mor
al earnestness, a big heart and an
Northcliffe, the -publisher of the
London Times and sixty other leading
newspapers and magazines of the
Empire, is a man of singular insight
with what seems to be an almost in
tuitive knowledge of coming events.
He has an analytic grasp of men and
things. Tireless energy, courage that
often is audacity, confidence in his
own resources, and boundless faith in
the people, make him one of the fore
most leaders of our day.
In France Clemenceau is the idol
of the hour. The grand old Tiger
has had a stormy and tumultous ca
reer. His honors have been won
through blows and struggles. Now
seveny-seven . years of age, all his
life has been spent in the thunder of
battle. The outstanding character
istic of the Tiger has been his un
daunted hope. And we have come to
regard this as the spirit of France.
In the dark days it was Clemenceau
that kept up the nation's spirit. He
rebuked the people for their fears; he
laughed at their discouragements; he
proclaimed his optimism and shouted
out the certainty of coming victory.
The world's supreme military hero
is Ferdinand Foch. "Thus for five
supreme generals," wrote a military
critic some years ago, "Alexander,
Caesar, Cromwell, Napoleon, Grant—
these and no more." But now a new
name must be added to the list. No
military chief since the beginning of
time ever led armies so vast, or staked
upon a battle issues so tremendous,
won victories so far-reaching in
JgSJfpSS. man ~ Marshal
No less influential than , any of j
these great leaders is our own presir
deni^-Woodrow Wilson. Already he
has received such honors in France
and England and Italy as was never I
vouchsafed to Roman emperor. His
power depends largely upon his mast- !
Y the art of putting things. For
d nations' cause. Sterling char- j
acter, Christian idealism, stadfast i
conviction of righteousness, and loyal- (
to the nobler elements of life,
make him a leader to whom all the
rld bows down.
These present leaders are men
whom we may safely commit the
problems of the Peace Conference.
But the policies that are outlined by
•these men will depend for their ulti
mate value to the race upon the ris-|
ing generation and the spirit that
manifest in their hearts and lives.
These men are well past middle life—
of then in what we would call
old age. The young men returning
from the field of battle, the young
men and women now in our high
schools and universities are they who
will determine the real character of
the world's new era. The fundamental
problem of reconstruction is the prob
lem of determining the motives and
jdeals of our youth, for to the rising
generation in largest measure is the
héritage of these present times. For
the conservation of our present gains
we must look well to the leadership
that will speedily replace that group
of world statesmen now in session at
the Peace Conference.
When Christ, hanging upon the
cross of Calvary, yielded up his life
for the redemption of the world, the
veil of the Temple was rent in twain.
The shrine of the covenant was ex
posed and the old and the new dis
pensations were united. An earth
quake had shaken the old order to
its very foundations. Not unlike
those majestic happenings of which
the evangelists wrote has been the
world upheaval of recent months. The
God of Might and Judgment has
shaken the planet from pole to pole.
Few men and women have been so
dull of heart as not to have felt the
revolutionizing experience of the
present hour. That which saints once
whispered in their prayers has been
proclaimed with a loud voice from the
housetops and shouted aloud in the
chief places of concourse. Thrones
have fallen into an abyss,
isms which mutilate and destroy have
been chained. Militarism and intem
perance—the two chief curses of the
world—have been marked for death.
New forces have arisen which are big
with blessing. In all this world stir,
this hurrying to and fro of armed
hosts, this sailing of colossal fleets,
this thunder and wreck of battle, we
have somehow felt the presence and
power of the Ruling Sovereign of the
Universe. We have beheld anew the
supremacy of His purpose and have
come to recognize the inevitableness
of His design. Throughout the nations
a Pentacostal wave has spread its
testimony to sin and to righteousness,
and in every country men and women
have wakened from vanity, sloth, and
luxury, ease and selfishness, and hav«
shown themselves creatures of God
capable of hitherto unthought of sur
render and sacrifice.
The problem of the present hour is
