Y. M. C. A. BUYS HOTEL
FOR SAMMIES WHEN
OTHER MEANS FAIL
In one of the big seaport towns of
France recently, a division of Ameri
can soldiers debarked. Every avail
able house in town had its full com
plement of Roldiers billeted, and there
was no place where the tired troops
just off the steamship could be hous
ed. The nearest city was fifty miles
away. The one chance was to lodge
them at an immense hotel. This was
crowded with guests. The Y. M. C.
A. secretary upon whom devolved the
necessity -of finding quarters for the
soldiers had to think quickly.
He went to the maritime governor
and told him that he would like to
lease the hotel. For some reason the
official declared this to be impractica
"Then we'll buy the hotel," said
the "Y" man.
"How about the guests?" asked the
The "Y" secretary made arrange
ments with each of the guests, all of
whom patriotically waived their privi
leges and went by rail to the distant
town where accomodations had been
arranged for them by telegraph by
the "Y man.
The Y. M. C. A. will continue to
use the hotel during the war for the
accommodation of the soldiers.
General Pershing urges home folk
to send cheerful, chatty home news
to the boys in the army. You can
write them letters of this kind, but
you can help out a lot by giving your
soldier boy a subscription to his home
paper. He'll get a message from you
every week that will really help. The
