Building of additional public
schools in urban and rural communi
ties to accommodate the thousands of
children who are being denied educa
tional advantages for want of accom
modations, is being urged and fos
tered by the U. S. department of
Jabor. The building of schools is ex
pected not only to serve the purpose
of furnishing educational facilities to
many thousands of children, but also
to absorb large quantities of building
materials and aid in furnishing work
for many returned soldiers during
the reconstruction period.
DEAD FIGHTERS' EFFECTS.

of officers and soldiers who lost their

of these articles among relatives. A
“personal effects bureau” has been
established at the port of embarka
tion, Hoboken, N. J., for this purpose.
