Y. M. C. A. WORKER
Princess Galilohi, Descended
From Cherokee Chieftain, Joins
Canteen Forces in France.
. A real, sure-enough Indian princess,
ls going to France to help entertain
the American soldiers and sailors until
the last one of them has been returned
to the United States.
She is Princess Galilohi, great
granddaughter of the famous King
Cooweeskowee, chief of the Cherokees,
and her mission in France will be in
connection with the canteen work of
the Y. M. C. A Her Americanized name

or more she has appeared as a lecturer,

kee nation and inventor of the triba'j
alphabet. This statute stands *n ihe
Hall of Fame at Washington, D. C.
The princess will have a rather di
versified program. She will sing In
dian songs and dance Indian dances
for the American rDidiers and sailors
and between times will dispense ihe
dozens of different articles that are
part of the stock of every Y. M. C. A
canteen. She is highly educated and

tensive Work of "Y" Among
DR. JOHN R. MOTT
General Secretary of National
War Work Council, Y. ML C. A.,
. Who Has Been Accorded High
Honors by French Government.
As a mark of recognition and appre
ciation of the work done for the French
aoldiers by the American Y. M. C. A.
forces abroad, the French government
bas conferred the signal honor of
Chevalier of the Legion of Honor upon
General Secretary John R. Mott, of
?the National "War Work Council of
the Army and Navy Y. M. C. A
! Telegraphic advices from Washing
ton conveyed the news of the distinc
i?n granted Dr. Mott, whose home is
to New York City. The telegram,
^signed by Edouard deBilly, Deputy
'High Commissioner, was as follows:
1 take pleasure in notifying you that
the French government has conferred
-upon you the titls of Chevalier de
la Legion d'Honneur. Please accept
my heartiest congratulations."
The National War Work Council,
.tinder Dr. Mott's supervision, in addi
tion to its labors among the American
'Expeditionary Forces, has maintained
more than 1,500 foyers du soldats, as
the Red Triangle huts are known by
the French poilu. Up to the .jnonth
ot October, 1918, rlose to eight mil
lion dollars had beon expended in "Y"
wortr. among the French and other al
soldiers served by the huts.
NEEDED IN FRANCE
While certain branches of the work
the National War Work* Council of
the Y. M. C. A. has been doing for some
time are being curtailed, one type of
sendee is being called upon for more
co-operation than ever before. Al
though for some time there have been
approximately 400 to 50? entertainers
in France, many difficulties have sur
rounded this type of service qpd the
thousands of shows which have been
given in France have only been put
over in* spite of almost superhuman
difficulties. Now, however, with the
period of demobilisation forcing upon
the Army new problems has a real
spirit of co-operatjQn been shown by
the Army authorities. Therefore, Gen
eral Pershing has detailed Colonel
Kellj', from his own Staff, to act as
entertainment officer fe* the A E. F.,
which position places him as the liai
son officer betweeu the Army and the
"Y" Entertainment Bureau in Paris.
Theatres and large buildings are be
ing taken over, mechanics supplied by
the Anny are putting them into opera
tion and the "Y" is producing shows,
given by soldier talent alone, and also
dramatic and vaudeville performances
and miscellaneous musical programs,
the personnel of all of which must be
recruited from this country.
Owing to the large number of men
in the Army with entertainment abil
ity, no effort is being made to send
men from this side. Women, however,
are wanted for thene positions in large
numbers. 125 must be sent out from
this country every month, which will
require the co-operation of every re
cruiting agency throughout the coun
try. All entertainers are supplied with
uniforms, Life, Accident and Health
Insurance, transportation, and allow
$150.00 per month for living expenses
The women should be preferably be
tween the ages of 23 and 30, neat and
attractive and possessed of a pro
nounced ability in their particular line.
The field for entertainment now
reaches from the coast towns in
France right up and into Germany, for
while the "Y" cannot do much with
the Army of Occupation in the way of
Canteen, it can supply entertainment
and is doing so on an increasingly
large scale. Information may be ob
tained from W. C. King, Peters Build
ing, Atlanta, Ga.
Haunts of Napoleon Are Home

Better "Leave" Facilities.
listed men are now at play. The fam
ous yacht club at Cannes, founded and
patronized by King Edward, and St.
Sauveur, where the third Napoleon "was
wont to go with his court, indicate the
j variety of attractions offered by the Y.
i M. C. A. in the leave area system oper
lated in co-operation with the military
authorities. From the Alps to the Pyr
ennes and from the Brittany coast to
the Riviera, there ?re seven "Y" leave
areas in which 50,000 soldiers can be
entertained at one time. Preparations
are now under way to increase these
much-appr?ciated facilities to double
their present capacity.
Representatives of the army and of
the Y. M. C. A. are now traveling from
one end of France to the other seek
ing new spots in which to set up leave
areas. The experiment at Aix-les-Bains
has been successful from the start,
as America now knows pretty well
from first-hand information carried
home by Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt, Jr.,
who organized the woman's canteen
work at Aix.
"Aches and Pains" was an ideal spot
for the experiment, but six others have
been found and pu' in operation, each
equally satisfactory as the original
model. Consequently it is wifih opti
mism that the army and the "Y" seek
to increase the centres where sure
cures have been found for homesick
Location, climate, hotel accommoda
tions, opportunities for entertainment
and sight-seeing and the moral and
physical cleanliness of the area are
all-important in the selection of a
leave resort. As soon as a site is
selected the largest available is ob
tained by the Y. M. C. A. as its main
center of operations, men and women
are assigned to service and negoti
ations are begun to secure reduced
prices from such entertainment en
terprises as cannot be duplicated by
the Y. M. C. A. and every effort is
made to give as much service as pos
sible. The army provides transpor
i tatton and pays the hotel bills, thereby
enabling the soldier to enjoy all the
attractions formerly restricted to
kings and emperors and malefactors
of great wealth.
The Jetty Casino at 'Nice and the
Municipal Casino at Cannes are the
centres of attraction in the Riviera
for the 8,500 men who can be accom
modated in this area. Many officers
favor this Mediterranean section, and
there is a "Y" club for them. Every
thing except the gambling that was
stopped by the government at the be
ginning of the war is at the disposal
of the Americans. Golf and tennis and
other athletic sports, bathing, boating
and the companionship of the k>cal
population ar?, the most popular at
