Bchetties tor the treatment and prevention of venereal disease, letting at the roota of the dlMase, and the quaitton of r^o�tltution werSh carefully examined. It was a case of^rotegtlng tha. tbl-dijsr.agRinst t)i(^.-,ctrill�iJ,?�ot the clvl-lian^agalriift the'soldier.v Five out of sis of the U. 6. soldiers with venereal disease had the same before they enlisted. It was significant that In the first year'Of war, after the regulik-tions made, no place was considered so safe as that of being in khaki. In Canada men were appointed to instruct the soldier as to fafils with also the result that after the first year or two ot the war'the same saying held good. � Referring to those iu authority who had the idea thai a restricted or tolerated area was necessary, the speaker recounted the action of Secretary Daniels of the U. S. navy who gave the governor of Rhode Island,48 hours to close up the restricted -area oh he would lift the naval hase from the state. A similar message was sent to the governor of Minnesota and to the maj-or of .Minneapolis hy Secretary of War Baker, threatehing the t-emoval otthe ti-oops if the restricted areas �\vere hot done away with. These had the desired effect. In Seattle it was the same, 'with the result 6f 300 diseased girls being rounded up. In Philadelphia, -where the mayor had had his own views of the restricted area, the police were instructed to report to tJie president and hot to the mayor. "I am tliankful," continued the speaker, "to the military anthtoritles of Canada "for wTiat they have done to protect the soldiers froni disease. In case. of the disiaase they are  not to hlame,' but the civilian -auth4)ritieB:'' WhatJs asked is hot tihat -jj^cral measures be adopted, hut that the laws of Cahada he observed in every The first men-who enlisted inj^an-ada- were treatedr with prophyl^tlcs to.make thein imWune to the dia'dise.

If i man 'was not  cdhSi^red strong enough to withstand temptation a tirophylactic was administered. The speaker noundly trounced segregation or restricted areas by understanding. There were no legalized segregated areas. Medical ^In-spectiOQi, of the  r^esidents ^ii these areas he: regarded as ai|f^rce;-" "I would like to see any medical man espouse the cause of medical inspection before the medical council.,. He would be laughed to sc,0:m. Medical inspection cannot test all cases.

'There Is one point about this entire reconstruction problem which I think those in authority have hitherto overlooked to a'/greaii extent, : ahd which tends to lead to unfavorable and even immoral conditions in our great centres. This isthe fac): that a great deal of employment provided for is feeasonai; That is to. say, tiie goverii-ment and the reconstruction committees have been mUch taken up with consideration of works that would provide employment only in the summer, sUch ias railway construction, house building.
