This in a nutshell I? a description of the situation which the War Per sonnel Board of the National War Work Council is facing. There la this to be added, according to A. H.

The thou sand? who have been accepted include many who have been under fire, but for one reason or another have been rejected in the combat branches of the service. Thece is nothing tame about T. M.

Not every secretary who goes over seas I? sent to the front line trenches - but he may be. The Y. M. C. A. rollows the righting man of the allies everywhere but over the top.

On? day the Germans may raid those trenches, and by tho vigor of their assault kill or wound several of the defenders. Will the Y. M. C.-A. secretary jump in. grab a gun and help to repulse the foe?

"It is thus seen that the German army Is very little nearer its ob jective. The Franco-British lines only show a slight bending and by counter attack? ?re endeavoring to restore their original lipes.
