A statement Issued at the Cap
itol says:
"It Is estimated that not more
than 1,000 Pennsylvania soldiers are
so disabled as to noed educational
training tor a new occupation un
der the federal board for vocational
education. Consequently, less than
one-fiftieth of the places offered by
Pennsylvania employers for disabled
veterarts will be filled.
"The vast number of employ
ment opportunities available for
such disabled men In Pennsylvania
will, however, give wide range of
choice for the disabled veterans
ready to enter the task for which
he has been 'reducated.'
"The 60,000 employment oppor
tunities for disabled soldiers
throughout Pennsylvania are classi
fied and card Indexed In. the Bureau
of Employment in the Department
of Labor and Industry at Harrls
burg. Classification is made as to lo
cation of plant offering employ
ment, occupation or task offered and
disability of worker who could per
form the task. All this data will be
constantly available to the federal
board for vocational education and
through co-openitlve action of the
officials of thaflboard with the of
ficials of the Bureau of Employ
ment of the Department of Labor
and Industry, every disabled soldier
returning to Pennsylvania will, aft

trained, at or near his home lo
"Opportunities for employment for

Within the last few days a request
came to the Bureau of Employment
for a rotucned, disabled soldier ca

Mr. Dowiing Makes Strong
Appeal at Ohev Sholom
For Crippled Soldiers
At the regular service of the Ohev
Sholom congregation last evening,
Michael J. Dowiing, president of the
State bank of Olivia, Minn, spoke in
behalf of the returning disabled sol
dier. Mr. Dowiing, who recently
spoke In Harrlsburg under the au
spices of the reconstruction division
of the Home Service Committee of
the Red Cross, is recognized as one
of the leading citizens of the Central
Northwest, although he lacks both
legs, his left arm and the Angers of
his right hand.
Mr. Dowiing gave a brief account
of the struggles of the early period
of his life, citing many of the ob
stacles and handicaps which he had
to overcome. He spoke strongly
again/t making the disabled soldier
a subject of public charity, and be
lieves in giving them a chance rather
than placing their welfare upon the
community. The speaker character
ized soldiers' homes, as "camouflaged
poor houses."
Another interesting phase of Mr.
Dowling's address was his delineation
of the similarity between the Irish
and the Hebrew. He showed how
both had for generations been ridi
culed and made the subject of, bur
lesque on the stage and by the press.
He said tnht the difficulties of both
races had to be met and were over
come. He attributes the success of
the Jewish race to the teachings
handed down from generation to
generation in Jewish families. The
average alien, the speaker stated,
had "made good" and has proved
himself to be 100 per cent. American.
Rabbi Louis J. Haas, made a strong
appeal for the Red Cross at the
meeting, suggesting that the very
young as well as the aged enroll.
"Let the 'Greatest Mother In the
World' embrace all of you, young and
old, men, women and children,"
the rabbi. He also offered a prayer
of thanks for the safe landing of
President Wilson, and asked the di
vine guidance and wisdom in his de
liberations at the peace table.

Veteran Arranges For
His Own Burial
Mifnintown, Pa., Dec. 14. —Filled
entirely by the premonition that he
has but a short time to remain on
Mother Earth and desiring a decent
and respectable burial after death,
Levi Durkis, 80 years old, a Civil
War veteran, of near here, is busily
engaged in arranging the many de
tails for his funeral.
Living on the farm of Ex-Sheriff
Zimmerman near here, Mr. Durkis
walked Into Miitlintown . this week
and went to the undertaking estab
lishment of R. H.'Brown & Son.
There he selected the casket that is
to encase his body after death and
made some other necessary arrange
ments with the undertakers. Com
pleting this end of the arrangement
he got In touch with tho Mlffllntown
cemetery officials and purchased a
plot of ground that i 3 to be his final
resting place.
Appearing hale and hearty, Mr.
Durkis says that he feels no ills, but
that the premonition of a death in
the near future has caused him to
these steps. Without any near rela
tives and desiring a decent and re
spectable burial ufter death, he does
not wish tho matter left to civil au
thorities and run the risk of being
interred like a tramp or paupor.
Possessing quite a good memory
for his age, he can remember quite
vividly many Civil War events. Mr.
Durkis was wounded at Eraser's
Schoolhouse in Virginia.

Get $13,000 From East Brook
lyn Cavings Institution;
Make Their Escape
By Associated Press
New York, Dec. 14. —Two officers
of the East Brooklyn Savings finnk |
were killed late yesterday by two!
daring highwaymen who escaped in |
a taxicab with $13,000 after shooting j
a detective who tried to stop them j
and holding a crowd ht bay with
their revolvers.
The robbers chose the busiest time
of the day for their purpose. Enter
ing as if to make a deposit, one ad
vanced to the paying teller's window j
and suddenly thrust a revolver
through tho- bars, while his com
panion "covered" other persons in
the bank.
When Daniel C. Peal, the teller,
failed to "come across as ordered
he was shot through the heart. His
slayer then took his turn at "cover
ing" the crowd, while his companion
ran to another window, forced a
clerk to retreat to the rear of his
cage and then crawled through the
small opening.
From that cage he hastened to the
one where the murdered teller lay
Hastily he thrust rolls of bills into a
linen bag and when Henry W. Coons,
assistant treasurer of the bank, ran
forward to guard the money, he, too,
was shot. He died later at a hospital.
Then both robbers made a dash for
the street and when Detective Sibert
Doody tried to block their path, he
received a wound in tho left arm.
Outside, the pair waved the crowd
back with their revolvers and en
tered a taxicab.
Hater the chauffeur, who said his
name was George W. McCullough,
gave himself up to the police. He
claimed that he was not implicated
in the robbery, but that he had had
a pistol pressed to his head and had
been threatened with death if ho did
not obey orders.
