What Y. M. C. A.
Many High Type American Women
Now Doing Great Service For Our
Boys And Allies In Foreign Lands
Make Home For Soldiers
Pledged to the service of the Amer
ican Army and Navy abroad through
the American Y. C. A., are four
hundred women canteen workers and
thirty-eight hundred men, chosen from
the highest type of American woman
hood and manhood. These 4000 od&
American workers are now overseas
taking a bit of home to the Yankee
soldiers and sailors "over there " The
number is being added to all the time
that there may be sufficient men and
women to minister to the needs of
the constantly increasing American
The American Y. M. C. A., has
mobilized its forces to help the Unit
ed States and her Allies win the war.
It has grown from a tiny lent on a
dock at a French port in 1917 to 1500
centers in France today. The Y. M.
C. A., has become virtually an arm
of the American Army and represents
to the boys the American home, the
church, tho school and college, the
best of club and stage life. In the
"Y" huts for the American and the
Foyers du Soldat for the French, the
men find their home life. In the Itali
an Army also this American organi
zation maintains hundreds of Case del
Soldat. In these various American
institututions the Allied fighting men
write letters home, read, enjoy music,
buy their "smokes" and chocolates.
The women canteen workers supply
the greater part of the home atmos
phere by their presence.
In Its "Over there" Theater League,
the Y. M. C. A., furnishes entertain
ment to the fighting man. The best
that can be obtained of musical, vau
deville and legitimate drama is sent
to Uncle Sam's boys across the sea.
With its Khaki college the "Y"
teaches the foreign-born men of the
army English, and the Americans,
French. It also gives the man who
wishes to learn a profession the op
portunity to become a lawyer, doctor,
chemist, or mechanic. Religious ser
vices are held In the huts by the "Y"
secretaries and the army chaplains.
American women of social gifts and
graces, of sound health, established
Christian character, and boundless en
thusiasm, who are actuated solely by
the desire to serve, are selected by
the Y. M. C. A., for canteen work
overseas. These women represent to
the boys American womanhood and
none save the finest type may go.
The general plan is to assign two
women to each hut, where they serve
the men over the counter, nell them
cigarettes and chocolate and give out
writing paper. The canteen worker
is called upon to play confidant to
hundreds of homesick boys, who tell
her all about "back home," and show
her scores of pictures, all of the
"sweetest girl in the world." She is
oft & the last woman the fighting man
sees before be starts on his perilous
Journey into No Man's Land, and she
must send him away with a friendly
handclasp and a word of encourage
ment. A conference and school for women
overseas canteen workers has been
established at Barnard college, New
York, and in a week's time they are
given a course of study which will
prove valuable to them on the other
side. When they have finished this
intensive training they are given
some actual experience under obser
vation in New York canteens. In
this way the capabilities of the work
ers are judged, the object being to
send only the best type of worker
This branch of the "Y" work is
largely a volunteer one. References
from the women workers are requir
ed. They must come from American
citizens, other than relatives. These
references are turned over to the U.S.
secret service, which investigates the
character and loyalty of the appli
cants. The applicants are subjected
to a rigid physical examination, are
Inoculated for typhus and typhoid, and
are vaccinated for small pox. Thus
the first requirement health is secur
ed. The "Y" prefers to have the canteen
workers between thirty and forty-five
years of age. They must sign up for
at least a year's service abroad. These
women wear uniforms, which are offi
cially recognized by the Army in
France or England.
Y. M. C. A., canteen workers have
displayed remarkable heroism on
many occasions. Just recently Miss
Evelyn G. Smalley, of New York, re
ceived a letter from General Pont
thanking her for her assistance to
the inhabitants of a French village un
der shell fire. She stuck to her post
in the canteen and visited and cheer
ed the people of the village during a
heavy bombardment. Another "Y"
girl assembled the population of a
small French village during shell fire
and got them all out safely. i
Unless a woman feels that she can
glv- her undivided time and attention
and conscientious service to the cause
for which America and her Allies are
fighting, she must choose another kind
of war work than canteen service
"Yes," said Simpkins, "I want to
my bit, of course, so I thought I'd
vise some potatoes."
V11. I thought I would do that,"
S.nlth, "but when I looked up
the way to do it I found that potatoes
have to be planted in hills, and our
yard is perfectly flat." Pittsburg

One Welfare Drive
Pres. Wilson Rules
Protest That Two Drives Would Be
Drawing Religious Lines Moves
President November 11 Set As
Date $170,500,000 To Be Raised
WASHINGTON, Sept. 7 President
Wilson has decided that the seven
recognized societies doing welfare
work among the American soldiers at
home and overseas shall conduct a
joint campaign for the funds necessary
to carry on their work during the
The President's decision was com
municated to Raymond D. Fosdick,
chairman of the Commission of Train
ing Camp Activities, who in making
public the President's letter at Wash
ington on Wednesday night announced
the campaign would be conducted dur
ing the week beginning November 11
and that the American people would
be asked to give $170,500,000 to the
organizations. The budget Is divided
Y. M. C. A., $100,000,000; Y. W. C. A.
$15,000,000,000; National Catholic War
Council (incluling work of Knights
of Columbus and special war activities
of women), $30,000,000; Jewish Wel
fare Board, $3,500,000; American Li
brary Association, $3,500,000; War
Camp Community Service, $15,000,000;
Salvation Army, $3,500,000.
Catholic Protest Fruitful
This decision officially recognizes
the justice of the protest made by the
Knights of Columbus and Bishop Mul
doon and Bishop Hayes, representing
the National Catholic War Council,
who declared that separate campaign
drives would be drawing religious
lines, detrimental to the best inter
ests of our nation, especially at this
time, when all the resources of the
country must be unified to hasten the
ultimate. success cf the United States
and our Allies in the world war.
The President's Letter
"It wa3 evident from the first and
has become increasingly evident," said
the President's letter to Mr. Fosdick,
"that the services rendered by these
agencies to our army and to our Allies
are essentially one and all of a kind,
and must be of necessity, if well ren
dered, bo rendered in the closest co
operation. It is my judgment, there
fore, that we shall secure the best re
sults in the matter of the support of
those agencies if these seven societies
will unite their forthcoming appeals
for funds, '.n order that the spirit of
the country in this matter may be
expressed without distinction of race
or religious opinion In support of what
is in reality a common service.
"In inviting these organizations to
give this new evidence of their pa
triotic co-operation I wish it distinct
ly understood that their compliance
with this request will not in any sense
imply the surrender on the part of
any of them of its distinctive charact
er and autonomy, because I fully rec
ognize the fact that each of them has
its own traditions, principles and re
lationship which it properly prizes,
and which, if preserved and strength
ened, make possible the largest serv
ice. "At the same time I would be
obliged if you would convey to them
from me a very warm expression of
the Government's appreciation of the
splendid service they have rendered
in ministering to the troops at home
and overseas in their leisure time."

Yanks Prove Rifle
Is Most Valuable
PARIS, Aug. 31 (Correspondence
of the Associated Tress) The effect of
American rifle fire has been one of
the great surprises to the enemy dur
ing the recent engagements along the
front. As a result the rifle is fast
coming back to its own as the depend
able weapon for Infantry fighting. For
a time its place was challenged by
the hand grenade and some of the
English and French experts took the
view that the grenade would gradual
ly supersede the rifle. Trench war
fare had accustomed both sides to the
grenade so that the rifle was seldom
brought into use.
Even with tho two weapon? avail
able, the troops had become accustom
ed to use the grenade rather than the
rifle, and an enemy fugitive would
often be chased until his pursuer was
uear enough to throw a grenade when
a rifle ball would have brought down
the fugitive from a distance.
All this has been changed, however,
by the open fighting of tho present
offensive and the unusually effective
use the Americans have made of tho
rifle. General Pershing has maintain
ed from tho first that the rifle was
the indispensable weapon for infan
try, and while the grenade has not
been neglected, every American unit
has been thoroughly trained in rifle
Many of the national guardsmen as
well as tho regulars were crack rifle
shots, winners in tournaments and
veterans cf the rifle-ranges maintain
ed at homo. These ranges have be
come a notable feature of the train
ing on this side, until the whole Am
erican organization has become speci
ally proficient with the rifle.
Germans prisoners nil recount the
same story, that the greatest surprise
came from the impetuosity of the Am
erican troops, and after that the
sweeping fire of the American rifle
caused the greatest consternation and
loss. Accustomed to waiting for a
grenade attack at close quarters, the
mass formations of the enemy were
suddenly exposed to concentrated
rifle fire at a distance with every shot
from a trained marksman who was
not blazing into the air but was pick
ing out his target and sending his
This experience has fully sustained
the American contention for the rifle
as against the grenade, and French
and English military experts are
agreed in tho enthusiastic approval
they give the Americans as riflemen
and in the view that the rifle has
again 'iemonstrate'1 its right to be
considered the paramount weapon for
