ments which are based upon some
thing much better and much more
lasting than the selfish competitive
interests ot powerful state. There Is
no longer conjecture as to the objects
the victors have In mind. They have
a mind in the matter, not only, but
a heart also.- Their avowed and con
certed purpose Is to -satisfy and pro
tect the weak aa well as to accord
their Just rights to the strong.
' The humane temper and Intention
of the victorious governments ha al
ready been manifested In a very prac
tical way. Their representative In
the supreme war council at Versail

sured the peoples of, the central em
pires that everything that Is possi

Washington, iNov. 12. Offices are
now open In 14 of the chief cities ot
the United States to receive applica
tions of disabled soldiers and sail
ors of the American, army and navy
for free education to equip them for
the vocation for which - they are
most fitted. These offices have been
established ty.tbe. federal board tor
vocations and are Is the following1
cities: ' Washington. PhlladelDhla.
New York, Boston, Atlanta, New Or
leans, Cincinnati, St. Louis, . Dallas,
Denver, - Chicago, Minnesota, San
Francisco and 8eattle., . , (
At each office are stationed men
to advise the disabled fighters as to
what they are entitled to receive, a
medical officer and a man to obtain
employment for them when they are
ready to go to work. This promised
by the federal board that applica
tions will be sympathetically consid
ered with the best interests ot the
disabled man In mind. : ' -
While receiving education the
government will pay the disabled
man $65 a month, and in addition
will provide him with the funds ne
cessary to pay educational fees. Each
man accepted lor re-education will
be sent to an Institution giving spe
cial coarse in the line he has chosen
or he will be given Instruction In
any Industry he wishes to learn.
. During his training period, allow
ances will be made by the govern
ment to his dependent such as
wife, children and mother. These
will be fixed in proportion to the
amount they received while he was
In active service. ,
When the disabled man ha fin
ished his training the federal board
promises to have employment ready
for him. After he has gone to work
again his compensation from the
war risk Insurance hureau begins
and will continue unaffected by the
amount ot his earnings.
In making these announcements
the federal board for vocational ed
ucation states:
"The worst mistake a' disabled
man can make Is to drift into a low
grade, unskilled occupation. With
out any training he must compete
with the normal man m a line of
work where brute strength and phy
sical fitness alone count and there
can be no doubt as to the outcome
when work becomes slack. Every
consideration' requires that a ..dis
abled man should obtain permanent
employment at a desirable age In the
position tpr which lie Is best fitted
or for which he pan become nest
fitted. Otherwise his career ' will
consist ot alternate periods ot more
or less undesirable employment. Idle
ness, trying to live on his pension
and picking,. up an occupation. No
self-respecting veteran ot this great
war can afford to je placed In this
position. ; There Is only one escape
by which these man may make their
future safe and that Is If training
Is necessary to obtain it through the
federal board for vocational educa
tion." ,
