ORRINGTON CLIFFORD HALL.
Y. M. C. A. Secretary Returns From
Overseas Covered With Glory.
Our fellow townsman, Mr. Orring
ton Clifford Hall who went to France
as a Y. M. C. A. Secretary returned
last week looking fine and covered
with glory as the following letters
received by THE APPEAL will tes
tify, they speak "for themselves and
further comment is unnecessary.
The first is from R. C. Mayor of
the National War Work Council of
the Y. M. C. Association of the
United States with headquarters at
New York and is given verbatim:
New York, N. Y May 26.Two
hours after Orrington Clifford Hall,
a colored Y. M. A. secretary of St.
Paul, Minnesota, arrived at Roche
fort, France, where negro stevedores
were quartered, he stopped a riot on
the docks. A few months ago when
the camp broke up the guard-house
was empty, as an almost direct re
sult of the Y. M. C. A.'s work among
the men, it became known today
when Hall arrived in New York from
"It was a fighting camp alright,"
admitted Hall, who is ..general clerk
in the county auditor's office in St.
Paul. "Believe me there were plenty
of .opportunities to act as peace
When General Pershing reviewed
the troops there he commended Hall
for the influence he had exerted
among the men.
"I started day and night movie
shows," he pointed out. "The after
noon shows were for the night gangs,
and the evening shows for the day
workers. When the night gang got
their lunch at midnight we served
them hot chocolate, two forty gallon
cans of it.
"Often at night and early in the
morning we'd start sing-songs on
the docks, getting the men to sing
while they unloaded the vessels. It
wasn't long before the discipline had
improved considerably, so much in
fact that we baptised half a dozen
men one day.
"Keeping them in camp on Sun
day was a tough job, and we started
competitive entertaining by the vari
ous companies. This helped out a
whole lot and aided in keeping the
men from going to points where they
might get into trouble. At one en
tertainment the colored soldiers at
Rochefort raised 1,840 francs for the
blinded French in the war.
"At the leave areas for colored
men at Chambery in the Savoy neigh
borhood the kept alert all the time
keeping the men entertained whilematters
there, bight-seeing trips to Hanni
bal pass and other points of interest
in history, were shown them. Each
day a new route was selected and
the men enjoyed everyone."
Hall states that the military and I
French people co-operated in every
way to give the colored soldiers all i
favors possible. Hall lives at
727 St. Anthony street, St. Paul.
ORRINGTON CLIFFORD HALL.
The following from the Interna
tional Committee of Young Men's
Christian Associations was sent from
the same headquarters to Rev. J. M.
Henderson at Chicago, who forward
ed it as he said: "No doubt the
friends of Orrington C. Hall would
be pleased to see this very compli
mentary letter in THE APPEAL.
My dear Reverend Henderson:
When Mr. Orrington Clifford Hall
of 727 St. Anthony Avenue, St. Paul,
Minnesota, went overseas about six
months ago he gave you as one of
hjs references. I am glad to pass
on to you the following cordial esti
of his work that has reached us
recently from Military Officers.
"Now that this Army post is to
be closed, we desire to express to
you our appreciation for the service
you have rendered as Secretary of
the Colored Y. M. C. A.
"We have noted with great satis
faction your influence over the col
ored troops, which has tended in a
great measure to assist the Com
manding Officer in maintaining disci
pline this influence for good* disci
was only made possible by the
tact and good judgment you have ex
ercised in handling the officers and
men regardless of color or creed, we
give you the credit justly due.
"We are proud of the record made
by this post, to which you have con
tributed no inconsiderable part.
"We feel sure that the work, after
concluding your Army experience, to
which you will turn your hands will
meet with the same success as has
tended your labors in France.

"The bearer of this, Mr. O. C.
Hall, has been the General Secre
tary of the Y. M. C. A. for colored
men at this post for the past three
months. During that time he has
proven himself a worker of the high
est efficiency and worth with the ut
most wisdom and skill. With his
I coming to the Post a transformation
was wrought in the life of the col
ored men in the camp.
"Mr. Hall has a good working
psychology not only in respect to the
moral and spiritual needs the
men, but also in respect to the so
cial, intellectual and physical needs
of the men. His breath of sympathy
and vision makes him thoroughly
comprehensive in his work, and gives
him a marked poise in judgment.
He is eminently fitted for work
among men under war conditions
and can be entrusted with any task
that may present itself. The Officers
as well as the men of this Post have
the highest regard for him and for
"It is a pleasure to make the
above statement regarding Mr. Hall.
Much more might be said in perfect
fitness. I take pleasure in commend
ing him to all seekers after men of
true worth. I count it a privilege
to have had the fellowship of Mr.
Hall in the work of welfare among
the men of this Post.
You will, I am sure, as a friend of
his be glad to know of the fine work
that he has been doing. We hope
that you will pass on this informa
tion to his other friends so that they
may realize our cordial appreciation
of the service he has rendered.
Yours very sincerely,
Edward S. Parsons.
