Can the unemployment problem in Toronto this winter be hendled without reducing ke the status of unemployables men

thrown out of work by recent industrial developments? At present there is a lot of untidy thought on the subject, and much bickering

in officialdom, Must this continue until riots oceur and life is

‘taken?

We suggest that the formation of an organization of prominent citizens for the purpose of dealing with this subject would have, among others, the following results?

1l- The organi zation would attract suggestions and ideas that now are bandied about from one body to another, none of them having force or purpose to take action;

2- Definite information would be obtained as to whether or not the Dominion, Provincial and Municipal authorities can be brought to take a definite course; |

3- The possibility of promoting new industries with private capital or money secured under public guarantee would be fully canvassed;

4~ A decision might be reached on the feasibility of stimulating with the loan of private or public funds @ number of small industries now being pursued by the unemployed themselves sats by certain philanthropic institutions;

5- The desirability of drilling able-bodied men for whom no more useful occupation can be found, and paying them a8 small wage per hour, gould be settled.

It is conceded that the unemployment problem in Canada,

in Toronto, is becoming intensified year by year. Some go so far

as to say thet. the Present amount. of unemployment would have

existed this winter even. had there peen no war. Others are

prophesying that upon the return. of the soldiers from the front

‘there will be far more unemployment than exists now.

Contrary to. the understanding of mm many of us, the Dominion Government is not dealing with the problem of unemployment as such, Nor is the Provineiel Government , for it informed a deputation of

the unemployed = few dsys ago thet it could do nothing itself,

as though quite willing to support anything emanating from the

A loca committee was formed in Toronto, That committee, after a number of sessions in whieh they dealt with charitable relief, gave up the problem of unemployment and have ceased to meet.

Dear Vr. Watts:

| In the clipping which you enclosed to re from last night's "Star" IT have been made to say what is not correct. There are of course quite a large number of Toronto graduates and underdraduzteas in the first contingent, and the University took action at the bedinnins of the term, counsédlling that the greatest leniency should be shown to those under-— graduates who are already at ths front, though each individual case is to be considered on its merits. Fossitly the reporter may have misintor pre’ sone remarks as to our not yet having had applications trom those who had volunteered for the secona contingznt. We exprct to have to daw with the matter when the third contingsnt goes as there will] probably be a number in it. T hope that, your son will te kept in health and strencth and return

in satsity when this awful war is over.

Yours sincerely,
