The noon-day meeting of the collec

happy riot, and speeches, amid the
din of whistles and exploding crack
ers outside the building, and the hard

thrown into the discard.
At Territorial Headquarters, how
ever, the large staff attended to such
business as was possible during the
day, though the workers were time
and time again snowed under by ex
cited citizens who swavmod Into the
rooms and poured congratulations
upon the representatives of the
seven welfare organisations. By 3
o'clock in the afternoon, all pretence
of work was, perforce, abandoned, and
all joined in the massed throngs view
ing the great parade that for nearly
three hours streamed along , the
streets to the accompaniment of a din
that might almost have been heard
in Berlin Itself.
The committees, however, settled
down to woik on Tuesday morning,
and, commencing at eight o'clock,
reported the truly magnificent total ol
nearly $36,000.00 by the noon hour
a fine record for four hours of work.

UNITED WAR WELFARE WORK.
By Rev. J. Charles Villiers.
Wo are in the midst of another
campaign in connection with the war.
First it is a campaign for Liberty
Bonds. Next it is a campaign for the
American Red Cross Funds. Then
follows a campaign in tho interests of
War Savings Stamps. Now, the lat
est campaign is for "United War Wel
This is the latest of these cam
paigns. It may not be the last. But
if there shall be later ones, thank
God, the war is over, and the end of
all such campaigns is in sight.
The amount we are asked to give
to this "United War Welfare Work"
is a comparatively small amount.
That does not mean that the work
itself is of small importance. It is
of great importance, and in no days
of the war has it been of greater im
portance than it will bo in the days
that lie immediately before ua. Our
American soldiers and I include our
American sailors with them have
fought a good fight. They bravely
met the enemy, with honor to their
country. They have won the respect
of their Allies, and the fear of their
enemies. They have shown by what
they have done, and by what they
were willing to do, how ready they
were to spring to action when they
heard the cry, "Your Country Needs
You." I have seen it stated, again
and again, that the great majority of
them could give no coherent account
of why they were going into the war
as soldiers for their country. That
statement might be true of a small
minority. It is not, in my opinion,
true cf the great majority. But few
of them knew that America had gone
to war for justice, liberty and human
rights. It was this knowledge that
heartened them for the fight.
Few, if any, of them, however, knew
to what they were going. How could
they know? But they went gladly,
cheerfully, an army of clean, whole
some young men. A thousand temp
tations to fall away from what they
were, met them here, there, and yond
er. But there were, wheresoever they
went, friendly hearts and friendly
hands to help them over the "tight
places." The result is that our sol
dier and sailor boys, few of whom
went away from us "weakling,"
whether they are in camp, on the
field of bloody battles, or sailing the
high seas, out are morally stronger
today than when they left the family
hearth stone to go to the war.
The fiercest moral battles for our
boyo serving their country have yet
to come. The seven organizations
now appealing to us for funds to car
ry on their work for the bodily, moral,
and ppiritual welfare of the soldiers
and sailors, and let It not be forgot,
for the multitude of women and girls
which must still bo provided for in
the special welfare work which the
Y. W. C. A., at the request of the U.
S. government, has undertaken, must
have our financial support if they
are to successfully complete the work
which, so far, they have done so well.
The welfare work of these seven
organizations is fourfold. It is physi
cal, social, moral and religious. Its
religious work is not sectarian. That
Is a fact in which we should all re
joice. It is a matter of no small mo
ment, that the same Y. M. C. A. Hut
has become for the time being in
camp, and on the battle fields of
France, the religious home both for
Jew und Gentile. The chaplain of the
Roman Church, the chaplain of the
Episcopal Church, the Presbyterian,
the Congregational, the Baptist, the
Methodist chaplain, all, in turn, make
use of it to conduct public worship
in. And from all we read, while the
men have, of course, their own re
ligious preferences, they go, without
compunction of conscience, almost as
readily to the service of one chaplain
a sanother. The money we are asked
to give to the Y. M. C. A., however,
is not a cent of it for the support of
tho chaplains. It Is for the more gen
oral work which the Y. M. C. A., is
doing for the physical and moral wel
fare of the sodliera. For this work
the association has somethink like
nine thousand workers, men and wo
men, in the "Red Triangle" uniform,
and nearly nine hundred Huts. These
workers and huts-are to be found in
every camp for soldier training, and
wherjver American soldiers are sta
tioned on the fighting fields abroad.
"Secretaries have gone to Russia,
Mesopotamia and Egypt to serve the
fighting men with their comforts and
The War Camp Community Service
docs not duplicate the Y. M. C. A., it
supplements it, by doing . a special
kind of service for the men when they
are oil duty, away from the camp, in
some near-by city, on leave, or per
haps just for "A Week End." It pro
vides them information of a useful
kind, opens the door of hospitality to
them, 'stimulates wholesome friend
liness between them and the civilian
population in the vicinity,' and does
what it can to help them feel that
somoono Is interested In them.
The National Roman Catholic Wr
Council is lending a hand along Y. M.
C. A., lines for the soldiers of Roman
Catholic faith. It is showing a truly
broad, and catholic spirit.
There are ninety thousand Jews In
the American Army. For these the
Jewish Welfare Board has 193 field
representatives, with 5 supervisors,
and 150 centers for thorn to work in.
This board has done a work which, I
am .sure, has won the "Well-done"
commendation of Jesus. It has more
work to do. The same may bs said
with equal truth of the Salvation
Army, co-operating as it does with
the other organizations, in every way,
and of the American Library As
sociation. We, of Hawaii, are asked
to give $215,000 to this great, essen
tial work, work that is to keep the
home spirit and the moral purpose of
the homo alvie in the souls of our
boys. We Khali raise it and go over
the top. Maui will be at the fore
with its quota.
