When the war began tho Salvation
Army was a world-wide organization,
with a world-wide experience of men
and things, and was thus particularly
well adapted for immediate and effi
cient war service. Promptly on the
declaration of war, or as soon as the
gravity of the situation became ap
parent, the Army in all Allied or
neutral countries, tendered their re
sources and organization to their re
spective governments, Including all
their buildings :.nd their equipmer'
This covered sjcU widely scatteri .
countries as England, France, Belglui i
italy, Switzerland and Norway, Swe 1
an, Denmark, Canada. Australia ai.rt
New Zeland. This offer was Immef
ately accepted, the properties to 1 o
taken over as required.

he stirred the common people, w!ti
whom they are always in clojo.tl

their own clientelle furnish 30.0U0 men
or enlistment. And these men we.u
pledged not alone as loyal British
3oldiers, but also as loyal Salvation
Army soldiers, ready to do their beat
jnclor both counts. In countless ways
ff duty as well as on, they were
ready to serve and to help to do
whatever they could to make things
Being ready.and on the spot, they
were naturally among the pioneers in
every one of the various forms of
service that have since grown to such
li,ige portions 'iii'l t the var'-us

One of the first and most important
was the organization of an ambulance
corps to care for the wounded and
the dying. This they started with
thirty-six motor ambulances at a cost
of $2,000 each, with a competent
corps of doctors, nurses and drivers,
who were equipped to give spiritual
aid -and comfort as well as physical.
They were among the very first to
see the need for the "Hut", and to
establish the same, of which they
have now several hundred on or near
tho battle fronts. Each is constructed
to accommodate 500 men, for relig
Sous and social meetings and enter
tainments. Between times, which is
of course most of the time, these huts
are used for general social and recre
tion purposes, with reading and writ
lag matter available, and such simple
and homelike comforts as are possible
under the conditions, and always with
meals and light refreshments for
those who need them.
Doughnuts for All
Whenever any considerable body of
troops move into any new section
they find that the Salvation Army
people are there just about as soon
s they are. Without waiting for out
side help from anyone, they fit them
selves up in some deserted shack or
dugout and are ready for business
two Salvation Army lasses and a
captain, one of them rolling out dough
on a rough plank with an old wine
bottle, and cutting out doughnuts
with the top of a baking powder tin,
while the other lassie dips them into
the boiling lard, and when they arc
brown and crisp, hands them over to
the captain who deals them out
smoking hot and savory, to the eager,
hungry boys who crowd around. Noth
ing like these hot doughnuts the
more so that no charge is made. It
s the common, though perhaps un
oieen conviction, tuat oy me trace
nd grease of those doughnuts those
ihreo humble benefactors lay a firm
hold on the kingdom of Heaven.
These huts, with their various ac
tivities, are in charge of carefully
)icked and trained officers, a man and
his wife and two or more assistants,
people of tried character and ability.
It is estimated that no less than 75,-
000 men make use of these huts every

There is at least one brigade of
the American Army in the field in
which it has become the custome
whenever a man "falls off" the water
wagon and drinks too freely of the
French national drink, to detail him
to carry wood and water for the
Salvation Army hut. Recently, the
story goes, three Harvard men de
cided to go to town without leave.
They were halted at the canal bridge
by the military policce. But they
were bound to celebrate, so they pick
ed up tho guard and threw him into
the canal. They went on to town, but
the powers that be were booh after
them. They were arrested and were
given a sentence to be worked out at
the Salvation Army hut, under the
command of the lassies there, scrub
bing, cleaning up, cooking, etc., and
there they learned a number of use
ful things that they had never heard
of at Harvard.

Before Going Into
One of the characteristic features
in which the Salvation Army special
izes is religious meetings before the
men go into action. When a man
realizes that he is taking his life into
his hand, and that it is an even chance
if he ever comes back again, it
sobers him a bit, and he is very often
willing to give a little serious thought
to his spiritual well-being, and many
thousands who have turned a deaf
ear to these things at home are moved
to give them favorable consideration
in the field. The services are not long
enough to be agonizing. Tho men.
however, enjoy them as much as they
io tho music -of tho phonograph and
the piano, the games or the study
classes. The services nover are a
bore, even to the most careless.
Hostels and Rest
Back from the front, and indeed
more or less throughout France,
hostels and rest rooms have been es
tablished where soldiers on furlough,
invalids, convalescents, refugees, etc.,
may find a temporary home with
kindly care and interest. There are
hundreds of such hostels and rest
rooms scattered throughout France,
and they are ministering to myriads of
needy and unfortunate people, win
ning them back to vigor and efficiency.
Another department of Salvation
Army cervice gives legal aid to
ioldiers and their wives, widows and
dependents, rendering service along
the lines familiar to us as Civilian
Relief organized since, and many
thousands have been helped in this
Withal, the Salvation Army is mod
est in its self appreciation. There is
very little blowing of horns, very
little publicity work, and press agent
effort. But the men from the front
who have seen rnd know, tliey are
enthusiastic about the efficiency of
the Salvation Army service. it Is
right there when you want it, and it
Is the kind you want.

The Food Commission authorities
have commandeered the whole prune
