NIAYAL STATIOIN
In the presence of a crowd of sev
eral hundred, including attaches and
sailors at the Naval Station at Al
giers, the Y. M. C. A. Haven built at
a cost of approximately $5000. was
dedicated with impressive ceremonies
at 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon. The
dedicatory address, marked by its
earnestness and the forceful manner
in which the message was delivered,
by the Rev. William Alexander Barr
of Christ Church Cathedral, was heard
with vast interest e inced in out
bursts of applause at frequent inter
vals.
Dr. Barr's ref,-rence to the great
world war now darkening the Epro
pean con;tinent and the part & the
young sailors and soldiers in the Am
erican ranks must play was couched
in dignified but forceful language that
carried conviction with every word.
His earnest apileal for the betterment
of conditions and environment sur
rounding America's fighting forces
and his portrayal of the efforts of the
Y. M. C. A to promote the welfare of
the men as typified in the new build
ing at Alciers. furnished convincing
evidence that the moral and physical
welfare will be conserved at all cost.
Mayor Martin Behrman, who pre
sided at the dedicatory ceremonies.
dwelt briefly on the necessities for
surrounding the sailors with all op
portunity for clean, wholesome enjoy
ment as well as for moral and men
tal improvement that will prove so
vital a factor in the perilous hours
that appear ahead for them. lie con
gratulated the New Orleans Y. M. C.
A. on the handsome structure built
through its efforts and expressed the
sentiment that the people of New Or
leans were eager to affiliate in any
way in the efforts to promote the
comfort of the nation's fighters, tem
porarily the city's guests.
Patriotic selections by the Naval
Station Band, which aroused the
crowd's enthusiasm, was followed by
the singing of "America," in which
everyone took part, the stirring
strains of the hymn floating from the
throats of more than a thousand per
sons, furnishing a striking spectacle
of the patriotic inspiration by which
the singers were impelled.
Following the invocation, delivered
by Rev. W. A. Jordan, the ceremonies
were opened by Vice President W. O.
Hart of the New Orleans Y. M. C. A.,
who made a few brief remarks and
introduced Mayor Behrman. General
Secretary A. O. Browne of the Y. M.
C. A., Commandant Nelson, in com
mand at the Naval Station;. and Re
cording- Secretary A. O. Godat spoke.
F. L Thoraberry talked briefly ie
licitating the sailors on the acquisi
tion of the new building, after which
everyone joined in the singing of "On
ward Christian Soldiers."
The Rev. A. H. Ziemer of the Clai
borne Avenue Presbyterian Church,
prayed fervently for the cohntry and
the men in whose hands lie the des
tiny of the nation. The singing of
"'The Star-Spangled Banner" by the
audience and a solo by General Sec
retary Browne, followed by the bene
diction delivered by Rev. Dr. Barr,
closed the ceremony. The Naval Sta
tion Band, "the members of which
were commended for having given up
their relief hour to attend the cere
mony, rendered another selection at
the close.
