Fancy Linens from Italy at McCutcheon's

Freedom and Teaching (Continued) uate from 1855–60, I can bear testimony that “to do our own thinking” was the constant exhortation of such men as Wayland, Lincoln, Harkness, Chace, Gammell, Hill, and others, and as a member of the Corporation I have the best of reasons to believe that the remarkably liberal spirit of 1764 still pervades both Faculty and students.

We are pleased to announce the recent arrival of several large shipments of Italian Art Embroidered Linens. A notable feature of the goods is that they come largely from Art Needlework Schools which in normal times catered to an exclusive clientele, thus insuring originality of design and distinctiveness in workmanship. The following list will indicate some of the more popular sizes and prices :

Tea Cloth of sheer Ecru Linen Embroidered in White, Blue, or Brown. 45x45 inches, $25.00.

Napkins to match, 14x14 inches, $30.00 per dozen.

NOT TO BE HELPLESS

BY LEWIS E. THEISS When Johnny comes marching home again, he may have to ride in the ambulance. The Surgeon-General, the Red Cross, and other agencies are preparing to take care of Johnny if he does come that way. The Federal Board for Vocational Training has recently reported to the Senate and asked for $10,000,000 for its work.

In rehabilitating our crippled soldiers curative treatment will first be given. Next each subject will be fitted out with those wonderful new artificial legs, or arms, or fingers, which enable their possessors to accomplish such remarkable things. Then, if an injured man cannot follow his pre-war calling, he will be re-educated, fitted for something he can do. And, finally, he will be given a job.

And there is the crucial point in the entire plan—the job. What can a cripple do in industry, and who will employ him?

Those are questions that must be answered before Johnny comes home. And that means that American business and industry must be combed to find the answer. But who is going to do the combing?

The Pennsylvania State Department of Labor and Industry, with a spirit as fine as that of ancient Isaiah's, has answered, “ Here am I. Send me.” And has led the way for other commonwealths. For it has already begun a systematic canvass of the State's employers.

Two questionnaires have been sent out. The first asks Pennsylvania employers to indicate the number and kinds of positions in their plants where crippled men can be advantageously employed. Thirty-eight types of disability are specified in this questionnaire, covering practically every conceivable type of distigurement. The answers to this questionnaire will provide the Pennsylvania authorities with a complete card index of the State's industries, showing how crippled men can be successfully employed. The second questionnaire requests employers to indicate positions in their plants now held by disabled workers. That will provide a practical census of the disabled at work in the State.

The letter explaining the questionnaire and the questionnaire itself are printed on one form, which can be easily handled. When returned, these forms can be filed as a card index. They will be classified by the State Bureau of Employment, which will thus be in position immediately to place any rehabilitated cripple seeking work.

As Samson secured honey from the carcass of the lion after his struggle with the beast, so we shall derive many benefits from the awful war we are now engaged in. Not the least of these benefits will be the altered situation of the cripple. Never again will crippling entail relegation to the scrapheap. And just as the Johnny who dies to save democracy shall not have lived in vain, so the man who comes home in the ambulance will have served all cripples for the time.
