George Edward Barton, author of
"Re-Education," recently gave out a
most Interesting interview in Wash
ington, whero he had gone to see the
secretary of war, the French ambas
sador and tho heads of several de
partments of the surgeon general's

of maimod and crippled soldiers.
Mr. Barton, who is head of Consola

"Tho needs of the re-education of
cripples are not made by war, but are
only intensified by it; wo draft

annual list of accidents, approxi

injuries involving disability of over
"That theso figures would bo
equalod by tho casualty list in our
army overseas is improbable, and

lose tho same member in that of 11
mill, factory or foundry, tho results

cerned aro practically the same,
and tho needs of society for the re
education of that man are identical."
