The Federal Board for Vocational Education has brought to my attention the fact that there are a great many disabled soldiers who are finding trouble in getting employment. The business men of the country are not responding in the patriotic way that they should. If each firm would en- deavor to make a position, if only for one man, it would solve the question, beyond a doubt. Greenhouse work would oflPer oppor- tunities in many cases, particularly in some cases where the men have been doing heavy work in the past and are disabled and only able to do light work. Many of these men have been hard workers and any work that they could do would probably be well done. Jerome B.

In some cases they require sitting-down Jobs, and in other cases the men have been gassed and require outside Jobs. As I stated the other day, work in your line is particularly well suited for this class of men. They will not be men of any great Industrial experience; they will not be men of any particular skill. It is the bale and hearty chap who had lived a rough and strenuous life prior to enlistment, who, because of this rugged, enthusiastic spirit, was the man who managed to get himself in the front lines and in the first dash over the top and, (n many cases, the one most ready to do the seemingly foolhardy things, whom we have to deal with.
