return of peace, we must all adapt [
ourselves to new conditions." "It'
is an erroneous idea," she contin-
ued, "that some of our war moth-
ers think since the armistice was
signed, that our mission has been
filled and they no longer see the
need of holding the organization
intact." She says, "The supreme
test will come with the period of
reconstruction, and the War Moth-
ers should lose no opportunity to |
also make this a period of prepar-
ation for the strenuous days that
will be sure to follow in the wake
of this world wide destruction of
humanity. So while organizing
for war time service and efficiency
we must not only conserve the sal-
vage, but largely influence the
new political, social, and economic
relations of peoples and nations."
"Our horizon, as it were, lias
been extended and we are no long-
er a provincial people, but our re-
lations and obligations are inter-
national, world-wide, and all prob-
lems must be viewed from an en-
tirely new angle. Now, more than
ever, must we be prepared for
that time. We must help to cre-
ate a new and better world for
our boys who have so nobly given
themselves for our protection and
liberty from a despotic domination
of the world; for these boys are
not going to be satisfied with the
old regime. The boys who come
back to us will not be the youths
who left us a few short months
ago, but men who are capable
of thinking deeply of things worth
while, for the betterment of all
"We War Mothers have a tre-
menduous work before us in many
avenues and channels, So that
whether designated as community
settlement or neighborhood work,
such work must be social service,
because it is essentially a service
to society, and its sole aim should
ba the common welfare of the
community, and distinct from that
of party or class or sect or in the
interest of any institution."
"Such work must be done," says
Mrs. Cheadle, "where the people
live, and by those who take and
show a deep interest in the work
and the people, by going into their
homes, by personal contact, and

The entire sisterhood, Mrs.
Cheadle thinks, should be proud

worthy organization as the War
Mothers o'f America.
