CONSTRUCTIVE DEMOBILIZATION Editor, Letlibrjdge Herald: iSir,-I notice that various views are bellig expressed jn connection with the demobilization of the Canft.-dlan forces and reconstruction. These are matters in ^which every true Cana-! dlan citizen should be vitally inter- j ested and an issue that should receive general public expression. 1 am very glad to note the attitude takefi by the i officials of the Great War Vpterans' I Association. Perhaps 60 per cent.- of' the-Canadian forces have a home or a former position awaiting them; the other 40 per cent, are perhaps men of a restless and shifting disposition, i who in joining the army had no fixed location or position and no definite plan laid for their future.

These men', must be taken care of. The mobilization camps throughout Canada that were used in moMlizius  and training these men shoula be retained, and reorganized and the tieii brought back to these camps 'Under' regular 'ia'tmy discipline, and.from these^amps constructive de-1 mdbilization, shoijld take' place.

Fisher, M.P.P'.; Sherwood Herchmer, A. B. Tritea and--j. r; Wallace were present and made speeches. Major G. G.,Moffatt and otlierr, of the soldiers also made appreciative remarks regarding the fine dinner prepared tfor them by the proprietor and Mrs. Wyatt. Turkey, chicken and other viands suitable to accompany the aristocracy ^ tho menu made up a superb feast which was enjoyed by ail present. A man, claiming to be a returned sojdier, in some unexplained manner got outside of some of the fighting brand of liquor which seems to have flooded this market of late, and undertook to bulldose ^Ir.
