When a duplicate registration form presenting the case of a dis- 
abled person is received in a district branch office of the Bureau, that 
form, giving complete preliminary information, is the original as- 
signment to the adjuster. A call is made for a general review of the 
case and formulation of a plan for the return of the disabled regis- 
trant to a proper occupation. 
Among the factors that must then be considered by the adjuster in 
the field are the following,— 
Physical condition of the disabled person; employment prospects 
that could be filled by such disabled person; mental attitude and basic 
education ; economic status of the registrant. 
In making such investigation, the adjuster working on the case must 
discuss it locally, not only with the disabled person and the family and 
friends of the disabled person, but also with prospective employers 
and frequently with representatives of educational institutions, hos- 
pital executives, physicians, social relief agencies and any other in- 
dividuals or organizations whose cooperation will be of value in the 
The disabled person may be of the younger age groups with good 
basic education, required to enter employment for self-support but 
without other dependents. For such cases, the adjuster may work out 
a training program. 
The training is always provided in existing educational institutions, 
trade schools or industrial plants. 
There are numbers of cases where heavy domestic responsibilities, 
absence of basie education, lack of manual dexterity or residence isola- 
tion preclude the possibility of ambitious training and require the 
adjuster to work out, usually with an employer, a suitable task in em- 
ployment which the disabled registrant can perform as well as an able- 
bodied person can perform such particular task. 
An adjuster of the Bureau may determine, by an investigation, 
that a disabled registrant, with amputation of leg or arm or other 
disability, must be provided with an artificial appliance as arm, leg 
or brace to be fit to return to any type of employment. The Bureau
