A letter from State Chairman Bushnell to District Chairman,
Chas. W. bale.
Chan. W. Gale Dit. Chairman:
By voluntarily assuming a quota of $100 0 90 at your meeting
October 25th. your Xk-trict took the lead in establishing a hign
standard which was promptly duplicated elsewhere in several Con
necticut Districts. In so doing you honored not only yourselves
but the entire commonwealth of Connecticut.
lncidentllv you will be glad to Know mat atter. your ampins"
Director Mr. '.lames L. Case, at the New England Conference v i Bos
ton October 23rd had described your organization plans. Dr. John K.
ii.li ii ..... r'n.ni the I'nited War Work Campaign puh-
lirlv paid a verv compliment to Mr. Case. crediting him witn
making' the clearest and most concise description of an ideal cam
paign for such a city as Norw cb.
Dr. Mott then set forth a few of the reasons why more than -oQ,-9V),'H0
must be Taised:
1. Because we have now upwards of 2 000 000 men overseas
twice as manv as the estimates of last Spring. ,
Because the expansion of Uie American Navy far beyond the
estimates and the necessiu of caring for 600.000 enlisted men on sea
f.s well as on land. ... ,
3. Because of the services which must be rendered to millions of
men and women in militarized industries.
4 Because of the continuity of service to our men from the time
thev 'leave home, through every 1 base of camp life, training, trans
portation, combat, recuperation and demobilization, 'till they return
' """a. Because the same agencies must be extended to our allies far
more than was planned in the budgets made months ago.
t. Because of the indescribable need of millions of prisoners' ot
war- Because even if the war should end in a few weeks, the agen
cies included in the United War Work Campaign will be needed then
even more bv hundreds of thousands of our own men who wi!l he de
tained overseas for many months of virtual idleness, without the st:m
uius of war to keep them in "fit condition mentally, physically and
n.orallv to meet the test ot battle. Wise provision must be made for
their leisure hours if our boys are to come back to us weaker or
Slr0Ko" these and numerous other reasons the national budget has
been increased with the approval of .President Wilson and in the hope
nd confident belief that the response will far exceed $250 000.000.
Whatever mar be the peace terms of the opinion is now quite
ft-eely expressed that in view of the man power of the allies,
I ncie Sara will have to furnish no small proportion of the interna
t'onal police force overseas to save Europe from the anarchy rampant
in Russia And while our boys are ttil in service Overseas they will

A LETTER FROM PRESIDENT WILSON
The White House. Washington, Sept. 3, 191S.-
My Dear Mr. Fosdick:
May I not call your attention to a matter which has been re-',
sently engaging my thought not a little?
The War Department has recognized the Young Men's Christian
Association, the Young Women's Christian Association, the National
Catholic War Council, the Knights of Columbus, the Jewish Welfare
Board, the War Camp Community Service, the American Library
Association, and the Salvation Army as accepted instrumentalities
through which the men in the ranks are to be assisted in many es
sential matters of recreation anil morale.
It was evident from the first, and has become increasingly evi
dent, that the services rendered by these agencies to our army and
to our allies are essentially one and all of a kind and must of necessity,
if well remlered. be rendered in the closest co-operation. It is my
judgment, therefore, that we shall secure, the best results in the
matter of the support of these agencies, if these seven societies will
unite their forthcoming appeals for funds, in order that the spirit of
the country in this matter may be expressed without distinction of
race or religious opinion in support of what is iu reality a common
service. ' '
This point of view is sustained by the necessity, which the war
has forced upon us. of limiting our appeals lor funds in such a way
that two or three comprehensive campaigns shall take ihe place ot a
series of independent calls upon the generosity of the country.
Will you nof, therefore, as Chairman of the Commission on Train
ing Camp Activities, be good enough to ret'Uvst the societies in ques
tion to combine their approaching appeals for funds in a single
campaign, preferably during; the week of .Nov. II. so that in their
solicitation of ttinds as well as in their work in the field, they may
act in as complete co-operation and fellowship as possible?
In inviting these organizations to give this new evidence of their
patriotic co-operation. I wish it distinctly understood that their com
pliance with this request will not in any sense imply the surrender on
the part of any of them of its distinctive character and autonomy, be
cause 1 fully recognize the fact that each of them has its own tradi
tion's, principles, and relationships which it properly prizes and which,
if preserved and strengthened, make possible the largest service.
At the same time. I would be obliged if you would convey to them
from me a very warm expression of the Government's appreciation of
the splendid service they have rendered in ministering to the troops
at home and overseas in their leisure time. Throusrh'their agencies the
moral and spiritual resources'. of the nation have been mobilized be
hind our forces and used in the finest way, and they are contributing
directly and effectively fo Ihe winning of the war.
It has been gratifying to find such a line spirit of co-operation
among all the leaders of the organizations I have mentioned. This
spirit, and the patriotism of all the members and friends of these
agencies, give me confidence to believe that the united war work
campaign will be crowned with abundant success.
Cordially and sincere.y yours,
. is, .

MAYOR J. .1. DKSMOND
Chairman, Charles W. Gale,
Speaks for the Seven Welfare
Agencies As3ciated in These Cam
paigns. On the Uuli of Honor which
stands in lront ot our own City
Hall is inscribed the names of
nearly 1 40' men who are in ihe
service of their Country, on land
and sea, and wearingiis Cniforms.
It is safe to assume that ninety
per cent, of these men have not
previously received military in
structions but they have stepped
out now to face the world to en
counter an unfamiliar discipline
to cross the Ocean to land in a
country whose language they do
not understand and who are hurl
ed suddenly out of their boyhood
into the most tryinj: and difficult
of all experiences War This
War differs in every respect from
other Wars and the most signifi
cant fact is this that in the pres
ent crisis the influences which
were best in civil life have r.ot
been left behind, but have follow
ed the flag into the Training
Camps, across the sea and even
inarched -with the boys straight up
to the line trenches, and "over the
top." How has this been accom
plished? -The Y. M. C. A., Y. W.
C. A., the National Catholic War
Council and Knights of Columbus,
the Jewish Welfare Board, the
American Library Association, the
War amp Community Service and
the Salvation Army. These seven
welfare agencies appointed a Joint
Committee through which all funds
were to be raised and were ap
portioned according to the size and
needs of each. These agencies
have not been merged, but will
keep their separate organizations
as before, but will work in co-operation.
They have to do this as
the undertaking; is too great for
any one of them to do singly. The
American people will cheerfully
g!ve their maney, as the fighting
men are their own sons, brothers
and husbands. Always remember
that a contribution to these seven
organizations is given an directly
to the hastening of victory as
though it vu put into Liberty

and this was mobilized with the others.
These seven welfare agencies received
from the government sole authority to
serve the army and navy in camps,
cantonments, naval stations and bases,
transports and warships, both at home
and abroad. At first these welfare
agencies worked as separate institu
tions, with little real co-operation.
Each raised its own funds. Each es
tablished its own units without con
sideration of the movements of the
others But as time went on the effi
ciency of this plan was brought into
question. Duplication of effort was
Seven Agencies Co-operate.
Co-operation became inevitable, and
in August 1918, on recommendation
of President Wilson, the seven welfare
agencies appiinted a joint committee
through which all funds were to be
raised and apportioned according to
the size and the needs of each. The
ministrations of the chaplain, the Civil
war soldier lacked everything that had
made his home life wholesome and
happy. He had few books to read, he
had no place of recreation after' his
day's work was done. He had no re
minders whatever of civil life, except,
indeed, certain very evil reminders in
the shape of disreputable camp follow
ers and wayside saloons. It 'was al
most an inevitable result of war's up
heavals in the past that men should
have their moral natures impaired.
This is a Different War.
A different story will be told of this
war. From the first days of V914 the
English army had orders from its
highest commander, General Kitchen
er, that sobriety and strict morality
was demanded of the men. The same
spirit was ehown by the French army.
If was to be a clean war fought by
clean men. And when we came into
the war there was no question but that
our soldiers should measure up to the
best standard that the English and the
French had established. Fortunately,
we- had the machinery through which
to work, and in the first month of lur
l entranee int'n the Ktrns'B-le the TTniteA

Mayor Desmond Approves
To the good people of Norwich
Your. attention is directed to the
campaign about to be inaugurated
to obtain tfunds needed to carry on
the work of the several organiza
tions devoted to the aid and com-
rcrt ot the brave men serving in
the armies and navies of our
country and in those of our allies;
and you are urgently requested to
do all in your power to make this
campaign signally successful.
The need is imperative, and we
can not fail to respond to this call
without proving recreant to the
solemn duty of the hour; we have
sent forth our sons, our brothers
and our neighbors to endure the
hardships and horrors of war. and
we can do no less than supply them
with all available advantages.
We are justly proud of our
splendid fighting men, as well as
orofoundly grateful to the magnif
icent forces whom they are so
brilliantly supporting; Let our
course in this great enterprise bear
unmistakable testimony to our ad
miration and appreciation, and let
us all contribute at this time with
the aame spirit .that animates our
heroic defenders abroad, leading
them from victory to victory In the
glorious cause of humanity.

Who are these welfare workers? A
ist of their occupations reads like a
classified telephone directory. They are
clergymen and rabbis, college profes
sors, motion picture . operators, ex
baseball stars, truck drivers. chauf
feurs, actors, clerks, sawmill opera
tors, mechanics, musicians, cooks the
list is almost, endless. To recruit such
an army when the draft is calling
millions of the best man material in
the country is a hugh job in itself. But

The seven welfare agencies no!, only
have to be building contractor; 2nd
real estate agents, on a large scale,
they have to be storekeepers. They
are motion picture exhibitors , Lit
erally millions of feet of film are
shown in almost every cantonment
over week. The weekly shipment of
films! o France averages 15 miles. The
weekly attendance at. the shows, free,
all of them, is about 2,500,000, and so
economically is the business conducted
that the cost1 to the organisations is
less than 2 cents a head. .
They are in the library business or.

another of these seven great co-operating
agencies stands shoulder 10

Germany and Austria their long arm

Keeping Up the Morale.
We have come to the point,., in the
war where that indefinable' factor
which we call morale is about to step
in as the decisive agent. The differ
ence in numercal strength on the
western front is not great as ibis is
being written: nor is one army mark
edly inferior to the other in equipment
and arms. Yet the forces of Germany
are retreating, and not a single soldier
on the allied side doubts that the allied
hosts will continue to advance. Morale
that factor of which Napoleon said,
"It is as other factors in war as three
to one," ia making its influence felt
more and more surely every day. It is
for that reason that General Pershing
asks for the continued support of these
seven great agencies. Because they
make. for happiness-and contentment
and confidence: anjl these qualities in
turn make for morale.
That is the first thing to remember.!
it seems to me that a contribution to j
these seven organizations is given as j
directly to the hastening of victory as
though it were put into Liberty bonds, i
They are tne great contributors 10
morale; and morale is winning the
And the second interesting thing to
me is this that as a by-product of the
work of thees agencies in the war
there are developing certain social
phenomena that hold great promise for
the future of our country. What an
interesting specta.de we shall have
presented to us on-Nov. Ill On that
day the seven agencies will open their
