Made for Compension and Insurance
President Wilson, in a letter to the
Federal Board for Vocational Educa
tion, has called attention to the fact
that the government stands squarely
hack of its disabled fighting men. His
letter follows:
This nation has no more solemn ob
ligation than healing the hurts of our
wounded and restoring our disabled
men to civil life and opportunity.
The government recognizes this, and
the fulfillment of the obligation is
going forward ftllly and generously.
The medical divisions of the war and
navy departments are rendering all
uid that skill and science make pos
sible; the Federal Board for Voca
tional Education Is commanded by
luw to develop and adapt the remain
ing capabilities of each man so that
he may again take his place in the
ranks of our great civilian army. The.
co-operation and interest of our citi
i-zens is essential to this program of
duty, justice, and humanity. It is not
a charity. It is merely the payment
of a draft of honor which the United
btates of America accepted when it
selected these men, and took them in
their health and strength to fight the
battles of the nation. They have
™ u Sht the good fight; they have kept
the faith, and they have won. Now
vve keep faith with them, and every
citizen is indorsee on the general
..Under authority and direction of
the Congress, complete arrangements
for rehabilitation of our disabled men
have been made by the Federal Board
for Vocational Education.
According to estimates made since
the announcement of the total Amer
ican overseas casualties, there are
more than 200,000 disabled men un
der treatment in the hospitals in this
country and overseas. Of this num,
ber more than one-fourth have been
disabled by disease. Contrary to the
general idea of the casualty list, onlv
a very small percentage of the total
have suffered disabilities which re
sulted in the amputation of limbs.
It is not merely the men who have
lost arms or legs that the government
is offering to retrain and restore to
self-supporting activity, but the Fed
eral Board offers its aid to every
man, regardless pf his disability,
who is entitled to. government com
pensation. The board realizes that
the many thousands of men who are
suffering from the effects of shell
shock, gassing, shrapnel, and gun
shot wounds which weaken their sys
tems, tuberculosis, bronchitis, heart
and nervous diseases, all may be un
able to re-enter their former occupa
tions. To all these men, as to those
with more evident handicaps, the
Federal Board is extending opportun
Within the next few months sev
eral thousand disabled men will bo
training under jurisdiction of the
federal board and at the expense of
the government. Those who had been
actually placed in training were tak
ing courses in a wide range of trades
and professions, including twenty
seven different occupations, industrial
schools, colleges, offices and shops
throughout the country are being
utilized so that most qf the men are
being trained close to their own
homes. Thirty-one per cent, of the to
tal now in training are taking com
mercial courses, 17 per cent, are
learning the various phases of agri
culture, farm management, poultry
raising, dairying, etc. Others are
studying law, medicine, bahking and
some are being trained in engineer
ing, telegraphy, tailoring, window
trimming and designing, accounting,
store management, machine shop
practice, meat inspection and traffic
Every soldier or sailor enlisted, in
ducted. or drafted into the military
or naval service of the United States
who is suffering from disability not
due to his own willful misconduct
may be entitled to compensation un
der the war insurance act. It is his
duty to present his claim for such
compensation in order that it may
be passed upon by the Bureau of
War Risk Insurance. He can pro
cure full information by applying to
the war risk insurance officer at the
camp or cantonment, from whom he
may get Bureau of War ltisk Insur
ance Form 526, which he must fill
out in order to prove his eligibility
for such compensation.
If it is not possible to get in con
tact with this war risk insurance of
ficer, the soldier or sailor should call
upon or write the Bureau of War
Bisk Insurance at Washington. D. C„
stating his case; or he should call |
on or write the district officer of the
Federal Board for Vocational Educa
tion in which he is located.
If the soldier or sailor is suffering
from a disability, he is also eligible
for help by the Federal Board for
Vocational Education in securing em
ployment, which help will be given
him in co-operation with the employ
ment service of the Department of
Dabor. If he is eligible for compen
sation under the War Risk Insurance
act, he is also entitled to training and
placement by the Federal Board for
Vocational Education, provided he is
not able to follow his old occupa
tion successfully without training or
needs to be trained for some new and
suitable occupation for which training
is feasible.
The Federal Board for Vocational
Education will bear the entire cost of
the man's training. It, will pay for
his tuition; it will furnish him with
books and other necessary supplies,'
and it will pay all other expenses
that may arise in connection with his
training. During the time he is fol-
I lowing a course of instruction with
the Federal Board he will, if a sin
gle man without dependents or a man
required by his course of instruc
tion to live apart from his depend
ents, le paid by the government at
least $65 per month. He may be paid
more. If, for example, he received
more than $65 per month as pay for
his last month of active service, he
will receive this same pay during his
entire course of training. Further
more, if his disability is such that his
monthly compensation under the
War Risk Insurance act is greater
than $65, he will, of course, continue
to receive this sum, whatever it may
! be, during his entire course.
| A married man and his wife will
receive $75 per month from the gov-
I eminent, provided they live together
while he is taking a course of in
struction. If his course Is such that
he must live apart from his wife, the
government will pay him $65 per
month and his wife S3O per month.
The larger his family the larger the
amount paid by the government for
its support, whether living together
or separately while ho is being edu
The same allowance and allotment
will be paid to dependents as was
paid to them while the man was in
the active service. If he is married,
his wife will receive S3O a month.
If he has a wife and child they will
receive S4O. a.month, and $lO will be
paid for each additional child up to
three. It he has-a mother dependent
upon him she will receive the same
amount she receivd' while he was in
the service.
In the case of a commissioned of
ficer undergoing training the support
paid by the government will always
l equal the pay for the last month of
ictive service, an amount always In
excess of the minimum guarantee of
$65 per month. He will be expected
to maintain his dependents out of the
amount paid him while undergoing
When the disabled soldier has com
pleted his course of training he will
receive the compensation prescribed
by the War Risk Insurance act so
long as his disability continues.
That there is danger of confusing
compensation with insurance pay
ments Is shown in the cases of some
discharged men to whom compensa
tion had been granted for Injuries re
ceived In line of duty and who have
discontinued pay#neqts of their insur
ance premiums. In sqme instances
they have discontinued such premium
payments owing to a mistaken belief
that the sums they are receiving
monthly from the government were
insurance payments.
Only in those cases where the dis
ability from which the man is suf
fering is total and permanent does
the discontinuance of insurance pay
ments by the disabled man who is
receiving compensation involve no
risk and cause no harm. This is be
cause in cases of total and perma
nent disability tlere is a right to re
cover government insurance pay
ments as well as compensation,
which made further premium pay
ments unnecessary as soon as the
disability was in fact total and per
manent. . , .
Any man who is receiving what he
believes to be insurance payments
should carefully verify that the pay
ments he is so receiving are in fact
insurance payments, and should not
cease making insurance paymonts
until he has definitely determined
that the payments he is receiving
are government insurance payments
rather than compensation payments.
The Red Cross is undertaking to see
that every discharged soldier or
sailor coming to its attention is fully
Informed as-to his rights to compen-.
sation and insurance, and gives as
sistance in making application for it.
When the arrangements for training
have been made, the Red Cross is
prepared to see that the family re
ceives supplementary assistance or
service which may be needed in ad
dition to the provision made by the
government. Since, under the law,
the taking of vocational training is
entirely optional with the man, and
his own will and ambition must first
be enlisted in order to insure success,
the influence of the famHy may be a
vital factor.
Whether a man receives compensa
tion for disability or not, whether he
receives re-education or not, the
board is ready to help him get a good
job. If he is entitled to compensa
tion and goes into training, when his
training is finished the board will
undertake to find him a place in his
new vocation.

"In Old Kentucky" Is a Drama
of Life in Mountains
and Blue Grass
Life in the Kentucky mountains
and then in the bluegrass of the
valleys below—hints of whisky stills
concealed in caves, a feud and horse
racing—all are combined to furnish
thrills in the drama, "In Old Ken
tucky," presented at the Orpheum
last night and to-day.
The play is presented in four acts
and eight scenes, portraying the ad
ventures of Prank Layson, a son of
Old Kentucky; Madge Brlerly, a
flower of the mountains, living alone
far above the bluegrass; Horace
Holton, the "willun" of the story,
and Barbara Holton, his daughter,
who is anxious to marry Frank.
Then there are Colonel Sandusky
Doolittle, speculator and horseman;
and Aleatha Layson, the Colonel's
sweetheart; and Joe Lorey, a moun
taineer In love with Madge.
Holton causes most of the sus
pense in the play—first by trying to
start trouble between Layson and
Lorey, then by his efforts to get
Lorey out of the way. Later it de
velops that he was the man who
killed Lorey's and Madge's fathers,
and Joe settles accounts as a climax
in the last act. Layson wins Madge;
the Colonel, Miss Aleatha, and the
happy ending to the whole tale is
brought about. Madge's services as
a Jockey for Queen Bess and her
winning of the race for Frank, the
owner of the horse, adds still an
other thrill to the play.
Lester Mitchell appears as Lay
son; Dorothy Laßue, as Madge;
Eugene Laßue, the-Colonel; Marga
ret Spooner, Miss Aleatha; Jessica
Hay, Barbara; Fred Monley, as Hol
ton; Frank Seay, Joe Lorey, and

"I remember that all the time he
was visiting her, although he was a
physician he was not practicing
medicine. There is no doubt in my
mind that the major mentioned is
Major Fahnestock. I have not heard
from or seen Miss Packwood since
she moved from here. I did not
even have her address."
Other Stories Confirm Iter's
Mrs. Cazeaux's story coincides with
the known statements and actions of
Miss Packwood before she committed
suicide. She told Mrs. Bradford Ells
worth, a Lieutenant In the Red Cross
Motor Corps, that "her husband" had
died in France in Octotber of pneu
monia and the he was a major, but
she did not mention his name. It is
a matter of official record that Major
Fahnestock died In Paris ,in October.
Hugh Cameron, superintendent of the
apartment house at 25 East 48th
street, where Miss Packwood lived,
told that he handed her the telegram
announcing some one's death. This
he said was during the llrst part of
The name of "Major Fenton," men
tioned in dispatches from Tampa,
Fla., was first obtained from Miss
Adelaide E. Bayliss of 11 Last 66th
street, Captain of the Red Cross Mo
tor Corps. She had written to George
11. Packwood in answer to a request
from him for information concerning
his daughter. He said that lie had
not heard from her for a long time.
Miss Bayliss at her home yester
day declared she had never stated,
as quoted in the Florida dispatches,
that she knew Miss Packwood's hus
band was a major.
"All that I knew was very little."
Miss Bayliss said. "I had heard very
vaguely that Miss Packwood had
married a man named Fenton. I did
not know who or what he was. In
fact the information was very vague.
1 don't even remember where it came
from, I "believe it was just a bit of
gossip that I heard around the rooms
of the motor corps. I do not know
whether he was a soldier, marine or
a civilian.'"
Not Mentioned In Ills Will
Whether Miss Packwood was mar
ried here or abroad remains a mys
tery. There is no hint from any
quarter that she had been married to
Clarence Fahnestock. On January 20
his will was admitted t.o probate in
Carmel, Putnam county, N. Y., by Sur
rogate Bennett Southard. There was
no mention of a wife. His estate,
valued at $5,000,000, was left to Mrs.
Helen Campbell, a married sister,
William Fahnestock, a brother, and
the children of Gibson Fahnestock,
another brother
The War Department in Washing
ton could find no trace of any Major
Fenton yesterday who had died
abroad or here. There wore several
Major Fentons In the army, but all
were reported alive. Colonel Sorley,
Commander of Camp Merritt, which
has been named as the cainp from
which Major Fenton sailed, suid posi
tively that no major by that name
had ever been a casual there. It was
understood that the Major Fenton
supposed to be the woman's husband
had been back and forth from France
several times. If this was true und
he went to Camp Merritt, there would
be a record of his name In the per
sonnel office
Added interest was given last, night
to Miss Packwood's statement that
she had been married secretly, for
the reason that Major Helen Bastedo,
head of the Motor Corps of America,
said Miss Packwood once had been a
member of her organization and had
requested a leave of absence to get
married. Miss Packwood, according
to Major Bastedo, joined the organ
ization at its formation. She resigned
at the time that Mrs. Bradford Ells
worth did, both Joining the American
Red Cross.

famous American play, (fresh from its
new triumphs at the big Boston Thea

playhouse in which it achieved its first
New England success more than a do

of the country.
Boston proclaimed, the play just as

conclusion that slangy titles make the

The New York Princess Theater is
a small place. Standing against the
back drop, an ordinary size chorus
girl can almost shake hands with a
man in the back row of the orchestra
This makt's for intimacy. The stage
is too small to admit of a large chorus,
so the has to secure a
specially pretty small one. Take ten
or twelve good-looking youhg ictors,
a group or so of winsome, willowy
winners, in very fashionable gowns,
and a score of Jerome Kern's famous
melodies, and a plot by fiuy Bolton
and P. G. Wodehouse, and you have
the recipe for the success of a Princess

Of course, you don't get quite so
much intimacy i in the theaters

to hypnotize you quite satisfactory.

[Continued from First I'ago.]
An ace was leading us, and he be
gan to do some queer acrobatics.
I thought he was signalling that
Boche were übout us, but I could
not see any Boche. A heavy white
cloud was below me and I was some
eight thousand feet in the air.
'Shaffer boy,' I said to myself,
'they'll be talking about you in Dau
phin, Pa., if you can't bust those
balloons. All of a suddent I
thought I could see a Boche bal
loon. The ace leading us was palnf
ed red and white. Then I got onto
him. He was signalling that there
was a whole lino of Boche balloons,
moored to the earth but some dis-
I tance up in the air, and all with but
. teries.
| As the air cleared X began to
shoot. It was a beautiful morn
ing. I could see through my glass
the Germans in the balloons observ
ing us. Each balloon had a big
black cross on it. Three times I shot
at one, then my gun jammed. 1
was up against it. They were all
shooting at me and I could not shoot
at them. Then I took another gun
I had and got it going. Just then a
sharp pain hit my right leg." Sister
Esther glanced inquiringly ut-Friend
Leg, gave it a sisterly pat and the
talk went on: •
"Another bullet cut off my rud
der and I found myself wabbling
through the air and bumping right
into one of the Boche balloons. I
looked for a place to land, but it
was all one big shell hole below.
Good night, 1 said, here's where
Walt. Shaffer gets his. I remem
bered the last thing the commander
told me was lhat if I was downed
I should either smash or burn my
machine. So, as I did not want to
be burned up, I threw her on one
side, and put her on the bum for
ever, and presently was on earth
again, with all my clothes.
"Who are you, French or Amer
ican?" asked the Boche officer who
reached me first.
He spoke good French and I was
able to tell him. While he spoke
another guy took off my fur shoes.
They wanted to take my fur flying
suit, but 1 kept it. The Germans
seemed awed as they gathered round
and stared at me."
"What do you think of the Ger
mans?" asked the Telegraph men
as the Shaffer boys hurried down to
the state printing plant to see their
"Just animals," said Walter. "They
treat you like a dog until you over
come them and then they lick your
hand like a dog.'
