Realizing the imperative need of protecting our soldier:
from the pitfalls and temptations that will allure them 01
every hand when they go abroad for military duty, a nation
wide campaign has been launched to raise the sum of fr)').
000,000 for the army Young Men's Christian Associa
tion. About one-third of this money will be used in carry
ing forward religious work in the sixteen training camps
here in this country, and the remaining two-thirds will bc
utilized in projecting the army Y. M. C. A. work in France,
where our boys, many of whom are away from home foi
the first time, will be stationed.
The government realizes the inestimable value of thc
army Y. M. C. A.. and gives it every possible encourage
ment. Recently General Pershing, who is in command ol
the American troops in France, cabled an urgent appeal foi
500 more trained Y. M. C. A. leaders to be sent to France.
If so large a number be needed for the comparatively small
army that we now have in France, how immeasurably
. greater will be the need when our forces abroad shall have
been increased to the maximum strength. While we are
endeavoring to make the world safe for Democracy let us
make camp and army Hie in Europe safe for our boys.
Not only will the money that is to be raised be used in
providing religious training and in throwing about our boys
in khaki every possible safeguard from a moral standpoint,
but it will also be used in providing wholesome sports and
diversions during the hours that the men are off duty, thus
keeping them from frequenting the debauching dens of vice.
The temptations of a soldiers are great in this country, but
they will be infinitely greater three thousand miles from
home among people who, even under normal conditions,
have looser and lower social and moral standards than the
American people. It is difficult to kee]) strong drink from
debauching our soldiers here at home where law enforce
ment is in our hands. This evil alone will be a very per
plexing problem in Europe. The army Y. M. C. A. will
be a strong factor in improving conditions surrounding our
boys. Will you not feel better to know that your boy, or
your neighbor's boy, or our American troops, are constantly
under the vigilance and protecting care of the Young Men's
Christian Association? Then when you are called upon
make a generous contribution to this noble cause.
Of the $35,000.000 to be raised. South Carolina is asked
to contribute $200,000. This sum has been apportioned
among the counties of the State according to their financial
ability, Edgefield county's part being $2,100. Our people
are blessed this fall with profitable returns from their labor
as never before, and it behooves those of us who are not
called upon to charge the enemy to contribute ot our means
to add to the comfort and betterment of those who endure
the hardship and dangers of battle.
I have been requested to act as county chairman in the
campaign to raise this money, and I take this means of laj'
-.MOMuui win oe given an opportunity to eon
tribute.; Receive gladly those who make the canvass and
hand them a generous contribution. Let it be in propor
tion to the blessings that have been showered upon you in
til is good year 1017.
