Rush Collins entertained about fifty young people Saturday even ing in honor of E'ward Shank who was home on a short furlough from training school at the University of Missouri at Columbia. The even ing was very much enjoyed by all present. A New Scheme. A new scheme it is said by of ficials is now being worked by some young men who seek to evade . the draft, that being breaking into the penitentiary. That the scheme is being worked has become more than apparent by the arrival at Jefferson City of many convicts who carry registration cards. To show the proportion of men of draft age coming to the prison in the last few months a poll of the recent arrivals from Kansas City was taken. Out of 69 men receiv ed from there in one lot within the past month 42 of them had regis tration cards or admitted they had registered. Several of them when questioned made no attempt at concealment, but declared they bad committed minor crimes for the purpose of coming to the prison io order to escape going to the front. They said they did not want to fight and prefered that method of avoid ing the draft'. Nothing has been done to call the provost marshal general's attention to this 6'ituation by the prison officials, but it will probaby be done The Huns are now discovering that America is getting Araericians into France faster, than they had planned to get Germans into Amer- ICJ Foresight. When the war came upon us it found us totally unprepared. It will be to our discredit if we are equally unprepared to meet the conditions of a peace which is cer tain to come., These conditions will make re-adjustment necessary There will be an immediate cessa tion of the war industries which are now employing so. many people, and there will be the needful re-absorption of a great army into the working ranks of the country. Tbe young men of the army,' ac customed to a hardy, out-of-door life, will, many of them, desire out side work. Secretary Lane's plan for a survey of all . the vacant and waste lands of the nation, witn a view to determining which of them can be. reclaimed for cultivation is an excellent project. Many of the plants producing war materials can be utilized for commercial products." The govern ernment and the capitalists will do all they can toward meeting the conditions. But there is much that can be done locally toward a solution of the problem. The government does not wish any public works. except those which are absolutely necessary, undertaken for the period of the war. But there is no reason why we should not have our plans laid for inaugurating them after the close of the war. In many sections of the country good public high ways are badly needed. Such en terprises will give work to many. . It would be an excellent idea to establish small factories in districts where the material required would either be largely local or within easy transportation. Conditions would be healthful for workers and employment would be secured for many men Foresight and careful planning will greatly aid in meeting after war conditions, and should engage our thoughtful consideration.
