The National War Labor Board has
justified its existence by the manner
in which it has lessened the differ
cnca between labor and capital
Formed under the pressure of war
time necessity, it has proved so val
uable that the Government is con
templating its continuation, though it
can not remain in exactly its present
form nor with its present members.
The board, as it now stands, is
composed of members representing
employers, employes and the public.
Its purpose has been to mediate con
troersies affecting production neces
sary to the conduct of the war. Com
mittees were named in different parts
of the country to hear local contro
versies, and when they failed to effect
settlements, the case was referred to
the national board.
Many manufacturers over the coun
try still have outstanding contracts
with the Government. The board is
necessary in dealing with labor trou
bles that may arise in these cases.
There is no reason why a permanent
board of this character should not be
established so that labor troubles of
all kinds might be settled with the
least possible friction.
A total of 1,515 is reported today of

airplane accident, 1; died of disease,
105; wounded severely, 87; wounded,

The reports of the work done by
the Boone County chapter of the Red
Cross made at the recent annual meet
ing bring home more closely to us
the wonderful work done by the whole
organization. The meeting also served
to bring to the attention of the peo
ple of the community the fact that the
work of the Red Cross is not finished
though the war is won.
One branch of the work stands out
clearly as of vast importance and
holds great possibilities for future ef
forts of real worth and magnitude.
This branch is the civilian relief sec
tion for both foreign and home ser
vice. The foreign relief section has un
limited possibilities for service in
helping the inhabitants of the invad
ed countries to regain their homes, get
their lands into condition for culti
vation again, and to relieve those who
have been made to suffer by the di
rect contact with four years of war.
The home service work includes
looking after the families of soldiers
and sailors and looking after the men
themselves when they return to civil
ian life. The return of soldiers to
civilian pursuits is one of the big
problems of the time. The Red Cross
will help them to find employment
and, if they have been injured or dis
abled, will try to find occupations
suited to their condition.
Therefore because the war is over
Is no excuse for losing interest and
failing to continue in Red Cross work.
We must not think we are justified
in selling our Liberty Bonds Just be
cause the war is over. Uncle Sam
isn't through financing his fight for
freedom, and until he is, every dollar

TWO ARMISTICES SIGNED I
(The following statement, carried
In full by the Associated Press, has
been sent to the Missourian by the
NEW YORK, Nov. 20. "Neither my
self nof the United Press has any apol

the signing of the armistice announced
as official and furnished In writing
for publication by the Vice Admiral of
the United States in supreme com

celebration under full headway before
I was able to get from Admiral Wil
son personally a copy of his written
announcement and his personal as
surance that the bulletin was official.
"The Admiral then sent his person

the dispatch, as I do not speak French
"It was the fact that all Brest, in-
ed the news as official and was cele
brating at the time that caused my
wire to pass the French censorship

"Upon my return to the United
States, I learned that no news had
been published here of the fact that
celebrations of the signing of the ar
mistice took place on November 7,
at practically all of the army and
naval bases on the French coast.
"I was also surprised to learn that
nothing had reached here by cable
concerning the fact that all Paris had

signed. At the American Luncheon
Club meeting in Paris on that day
the toastmaster arose and with Ad
miral Benson seated on one side of

Thacker on the other, announced on
what he said was the authority of
the American embassy that the armis
tice had been signed.
"All the celebration on that day
was by no means on this side of the
"Nothing much has yet been said
as to the source of Admiral Wilson's
information. This Is not for me to
discuss. Nothing has been said as to
the reason for the report current on
that day throughout France. No ex
planation has yet been offered or how
the report reached the American em
bassy in Paris as official. Neither
has any explanation been offered yet
as to what became of the first Ger

von ilintze, which was reported to
have reached the French lines No

from the news, being supplanted by
the Eerzberger plenipotentiaries.
"Some of these matters will be
cleared up after peace is signed."
Howard called upon Secretary Dan
iels yesterday to express his appre
ciation of the courage and squareness
of Admiral Wilson in furnishing the
united Press with a signed statement
assuming full responsibility for the
bulletin which started the wonderful
American celebration of November 7.
