wBBPiR nrlKTBS 5 Bsf lis Page Four THE ETEX1SG MISSOURIAX, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1913. "VOLUNTEER DAYS" WILL " SHOW AMERICA'S SPIRIT One of the principal reasons why the Liberty Loan organization has desig nated September 28 and 29 as "Volun teer Days" is to give a final and defi nite answer to the German claims that America is not solidly behind the war.

Mrs. Louis Selbert talked on "Op portunities for Women in the Field of Reconstruction" at a meeting of the Chic League in the Y. M. C. A. Audi torium yesterday afternoon Mrs. Selbert said the big problem of reconstruction will not be how to care for the soldier, but what to do with the women who will be needed no longer after the war in their present positions. These women will not be content to be idle. They must prepare themselves for positions such as caring for the soldiers incapacitated on the battle field, she said.
