Title: Telegraphy -- And Concentration
From: Launching Men Anew
Original caption: A man who studies telegraphy keeps his mind on the instrument and not on his handicaps. Because telegraphy offers a substantial future, it is the prize class at Fort McHenry; and at the same time one of the most effective mental tonics. It holds a place for almost any man -- no matter what his physical disability may be. The workshop schedule in wards and shops utilized as occupational therapy will afford intellectual and manual training as well as mental diversion for our returned soldiers. This work at Walter Reed where these products were made -- and at other reconstruction centers -- is of a character to fit the man for his civil occupation.
