Rome. In spite of the low state of
national finance Italy Is attempting to
carry out a broad program for the
relief of war veterans and the unem unemployed
ployed unemployed by means of land reclamation
and other public works.
Italy deals with its problem ,of war
veterans through the Opera Nazionale
del Combattenti, organized in Decem December,
ber, December, 1917, with an initial capital, of
300,000,00 lire, of which the govern government
ment government contributed '250,000,000. The
opera has a social' section for voca
tional training and placing, a financial
section for providing creOit to indi
vidual soldiers or co-operative groups,
and an agricultural section, which
concentrates on land reclamation.
Relief for Unemployed.
The general unemployment preblem
continues to be taken seriously by the
government, although there is no fear
now of revolutionary outbreaks as the
result of the lack of work. In the last
few weeks the number of unemployed
has decreased slightly, but there are
still more than half a million men out
of work. Arrangements are almost
completed for starting the public
works authorized last August for the
relief of the situation, .but at the
moment the apportioning of funds and
the increase of the amount of work to
be undertaken is occupying the cham
ber of deputies. The public works
appropriation is the parliamentary
pork barrel of the country.
SIgnor Riccio, minister of public
works, is attempting to hold the bal
ance between the deputies competing
for apportionments and to protect the
national budget from being swamped
with more projects than it can stand.
He stated in the chamber the other
day that in. the first three months of
this year there has already been paid
out for labor on public works 1300,-
000,000 lire, as against 258,000,000 In
the whole year of 1914. He added
that although the minister of finance
had authorized the expenditure of
3,000,000,000 more tot public labor
this year, he did not see where the
money was coming from.
. The grave depression In the metal
lurgical districts of Milan and Turin
is threatening to throw more men on
the streets, and as usual the condi
tion of unemployment In the province
of Emilia is widespread.
The situation in Emilia Is typical of
the sort of problem Italian state offi
cials have to face. For the last 20
years the province has been greatly
overpopulatedV but the surplus citi citizens
zens citizens have refused to emlgate. There
Is therefore a chronic floating popu population
lation population of day laborers who practically
are a charge on the state.
Plana of Reclamation.
The government's policy of public
works is a sound one In that the
money spent constitutes an Invest Investment
ment Investment which In future years will more
than pay for Itself. Instead of pro providing
viding providing "busy work" the ministry Is
carrying out a far-sighted scheme for
the transformation of malarial marsh
lands into fertile territory. Since
1860 the government has obtained
more than 339,000,000 lire in plus
value from its reclaimed lands. For
this work the government spent 57, 57,-783,310
783,310 57,-783,310 lire for reclaiming 394,027
acres, and private consortiums spent
an equal amount, but recovered 394, 394,-027
027 394,-027 acres. This year the government
has appropriated 80,000,000 lire for
reclamation of land in eight provinces
and work began in March.
Other projects of the government
are equally constructive. Roads and
railways are being built in Sicily and
Calabria, and in the latter province
the government is building artificial
lakes to store water for the hydro hydroelectric
electric hydroelectric plants In the Sila plateau.
This part of the country being dry,
irrigation and not draining is the
problem, and the government has of offered

develop plans fur an intensive effort
on the part of the American Legion

posts in all communities where there

sponsor the organization of a troop,
and In other communities to co-operate
with existing troops in the
strengthening of their work. Already
the American Legion has sponsored
the organization of 56 troops. Com Commander
mander Commander MacNider has issued a strong
appeal to all Legion posts to co-oper

troops throughout the country, and has
suggested the idea of posts adopting

and it is hoped by the officers of the

It was explained by the chief scout ex executive,

there has been a lack of resources in

with the American Legion this
membership will be substantially In

GOOD SCOUT STUFF
Too young yet to be admitted to a
scout troop, eleven-year-old Reeve
Geary of Far Rockaway has neverthe nevertheless
less nevertheless done everything In his power to
get ready for the great event, when
his next birthday warrants his debut
into the movement for which he
cherishes so ardent an enthusiasm. He
had nearly committed to memory the
official scout handbook, particularly
the chapter which deals with first aid
and life saving, and hero tales of boy
scouts thrilled him to the marrow. And
then, all of a sudden, before he could
don the coveted scout uniform, he
found himself called upon to do a deed
which for cool-headedness would have
done credit to any eagle scout. This
Is what happened. Reeve and his eight-
year-old brother, John, together with
two other youngsters were playing on
the shore at the foot of Clinton ave avenue,
nue, avenue, Jamaica Bay. Reeve was on the
beach while the other three clambered
about In a motor boat which was
anchored near by. Suddenly td his
horror, he saw John, lurch over feet
first Into the deep water. Instantly
Reeve was In the boat. Calling to his
brother not to be afraid, he hung his
legs over the edge of the boat Into the
water telling the younger lad to catch
on to him. But John was too
frightened to heed Instructions and
Instead of getting hold of his brother's
feet went down Into the water. Reeve
dived after him and as soon as he
came to the surface got him to shore,
with the help of his companions. True
to the scout Ideals, though he isn't
yet a scout, Reeve told no one but hia
parents about the accident.

Freak Me'rnory of aGerman.
Herr Otto Schrader of Berlin Is
reputed to have the most marvelous"
memory in tfce world. The German
Meteorological society tested It re
cently. "What was the weather the
other day say November 26, 1890?"
the president of the society asked
Schrader. Schrader never hesitated:
It was very clear before dawn," said
Schrader. "In the afternoon It was
cloudy, with snow flurries. The tem
perature was two or three degrees
above freezing." And Schrader was
right, the German scientists found out
on cnecKing up. several American
theatrical men are said to be after him
to appear on the vaudeville stage in
the United States this summer.
