Pershing Says:

Pershing made this statement to the French
general staff.
And Pershing knows.
He had the Y. M. C. A. back of him in the Phil
ippines. He had it in Mexico. Now he has it
in France. And hesavs:
*
“You need the Y. M. C. A. to win the war."
He knows how the Y. M. ( . \ keeps hi' hoys
on fighting edge.
lie knows how the Y M. < . \. cuts into the mo
notony of camp life.
He know * how if takes a lit tle of the drab out
of each day.
He knows how its friendly influence follows
the raw recruit through every stage of his
army experience until at last clean, strong
and self reliant, he * - ready to go over the top.
And the last friend he sees before he goes
over is the Y. M. ('. A. <ecretarv —with stimu
%>
lating refreshment —a pat on the hack—“and
the best of luck, old man."

The temptations against the soldiers’ morals
are more dreaded bv the officers than the
enemy.
They realize that the V. M. C. A., providing
dean, wholesome amusement and the nearest
approach to home environment, is a real in
fluence for the good and the morale of the
American soldier.
Pershing wants the “Y.” Wilson wants it.
Lloyd George wants it. So does Poincare.
So do you, if you ( are to see the boys that are
fighting for you come back clean in health
and spirit.
The “Y” is performing a work for the soldier
that is of untold value for America and you.
( lean hearts, clean minds, clean bodies —and
a little bit of cheer. Isn't that worth while?
It is your duty, as a citizen of Detroit, to help
raise Detroit’s quota of 8700,000.
How much will you give? How will you give
it? When will you give it?
