Rotary Club Gets Behind Gov
ernment Movement in Be
half of Disabled Soldiers
The Rotary Club of Harrisburg at
its meeting in the Y. M. C. A. en
dorsed the movement of the Federal
Board of Vocational Education for
the re-education of disabled soldiers
ar.d offered to co-operate heartily fo>-
the re-employment of these trained
men in positions for which they are
This action was taken following a
discussion of the subject by C. J. C.
Clarke, the Government representa
tive, who made a deep impression on
the members.
"You men must find jobs for these
re-educated men." said he. "else the
whole plan will fail, but I feel sure
that it will succeed mightily. You
can't be of service simply by talking;
you must act. We will train the
nen and guarantee they will give
satisfaction or you need not keep
them. We will even permit you to
train them in your own places of em
ployment, paying them what they are
worth while they are learning and
fair wages after they have learned
and the Government ceases to pay
them an allowance."
Mr. Clarke, who has his headquar
ters at the Boy Scout offices in the
Calder biuldlng, says that some able
bodied soldiers have been unable
either to get their old Jobs back or
something Just as good. He cited
several cases and asked the club to
do what it can for them.
Women's Might
The club planned for a women's
night some time in February, when
a dinner will be served at the Fenn-
Harris. Norris S. Longaker will
have charge of the event.
It cost the club nearly 4600 to give
the Big Brother dinner on New Year's
Day to children of Harrisburg and
a deficiency of $75 was made up in
five minutes.
The club will continue to hold its
weekly luncheons at the Penn-Har
ris. It was decided upon by a vote of
the members, transferring its quar
ters from the Y. M. C. A., where it
has been well served for the past
year or more.

The American delegates to
the world peace conference have
taken note of the "American plan"
for a league of nations as outlined
by the Paris edition of the Daily
J Mail. It is said they have no knowl
edge of it beyond what they have
read. The members of the commis
sion declare it did not originate with
The American plan, it is declared,
is not yet definitely formulated and
will not be until the President fur
ther examines various tentative sug
gestions, Including several from al
lied governments. It is added In
authoritative quarters that the state
ment that the British government
has accepted the plan outlined by
I the Dally Mail is incorrect.
M. Bourgeois' plan, embodying the
French point of view, while general,
also embraces a number of specific
details. Including compulsory arbi
tration, restriction of excessive arm
ament, an International tribunal and
a series of sanctions or penalties for
! enforcing observance of the league's
i decisions. These sanctions include
various diplomatic, judicial and eco
nomic mensures, whereby the united
nations may enforce their decrees.
The American viewpoint, now be
ing formulated by the specialists as
the groundwork for the President,
seeks to reach an accord on funda
mentals on which all agree, and pre
sent them in simple working form.
One of the chief of these fundamen
tals is the formation of a league
which will embrace all the nations
of the world, but not one which will
establish any balance of power
among a group of nations.
Care also is being taken that the
influence of the various nations in
the league would be In accordance
with their size and importance, so
that the great powers and the small
powers would have voices according
to their standing.
Another feature especially con
cerning small undeveloped nations
is to be established, uccording to the
American plan—a system of inter
national trusteeship' whereby the
various larger nations having a de
veloped and stable civilization will
act as trustees for the Society of Na

development of undeveloped commu
