he to enlist all the best constructive
minds in the state for work along
lines to get. the people ready to prepare
for peace according to Professor F. G.
Young, director of the Commonwealth
Conference and professor of sociology
at the University.
“The world will take a fresh start
after the war,” Professor Y'oung said,
“and Oregon probably is one of the larg
est spots in the country where both
labor and capital will need to be re
constructed on a new basis. The com.
monwealth conference lends itself to

immigrants may be attracted and maybe
aided to make homes in Oregon with the
legist possible failure and distress.”
A commission or agency organized to
help labor adjustments and cooperation
would help materially, is the opinion of
Professor Young because the certain
' shifting of industries and other econ
omic activities he said at the cessation
of war work also will call for a mature
organization to handle the employment
problem, and furthermore all signs in
dicate that the most significant home
influence of the war has been that of
vitalizing the spirit of militant democ
racy and the readjustments it will call
for will require thp most serious pre
Speakers for this conference will be
chosen from representatives of the
federal service such as the public health
ofice, the commission on immigration,
forestry, education, highways and mem
