All New Zealanders May
Engage in World War
(Correspondent of The Associated Press.)
Wellington, New Zealand, July 31.
The National Efficiency Board
created by the New Zealand govern
ment has decided that every man and
woman in the Dominion must engage
in war work if necessify arises. It al
so sent a circular to, school boards
suggesting that the midwinter holi
days which fall in July be curtailed and
the time saved then be added to the
midsummer Christmas holidays. This
would give about eight weeks vaca
tion during which the larger boys
could assist in sheep shearing, fruit
picking, hop gathering and other out
door work. Last Christmas a num
ber of school boys did this and some
of them earned from $50 upward.
It seems certain thaj some measure
of the kind will take place owing to
the steady depletion of labor by con
scription. Men fit only for home
military service probably will be or-1
ganized for war work, but it is ex
pected that at present women will not
be. But if the war long continues fe
male labor is likely to be similarly
utilized. ,

"The Digest" an Impartial and Accurate Historian ,
When the history of the critical times in which we
live comes to be written by scholars of a later day
than ours they will have great difficulty in disen
tangling the truth rgarding the stupendous world
events that are now taking place all about us from
the great mass of partizan literature and opposing
claims that our age has produced. Conflicting tes
timony of the most weighty kind will be unearthed
at every turn. Prehaps .the sole really reliable
guide to the actual facts of doubtful cases will be
the files of THE LITERARY DIGEST, which
cover all these great events with absolute imparti
ality from, week to week. Here the historian will
get, the views and reports of all parties as to any
particular happening cited, in their own words,
and, will be able to compare and judge of the facts
for himself. No history can be more accurate than
this weekly summary, which approximates truth
as nearly as anything human can.
