"go WOMEN AND THE WAR By MRS. HENRY P. DAVISON Treasurer War Work Council National Board Y. W. C. A. In an Illinois prairie town lives a widow who launders seventeen bas kets of wash week and every 1 night thanks God for having put I pity into the " hearts of women. To her came one day a letter from ;i her only son. He was then at Camp Funston, Kansas, r learning to be a I soldier. The iet I ter begged her to ! come and see him ■ before he sent to France. The mother opened the tin bank in which she had been boarding her dimes ana quarters against this day. The money was scarcely enough. Nevertheless she started. She walked the first eighteen miles. Then her strength gave out, and she took a train. 'tW s - i* v i: w a s Mrs. Davison that visitors Vn Junction C, So she got off Cam P stay I eleven miles away. the train at Fort'Riley. An officer se t her right and she reached Juno tion City after dark. Somehow she found a rooming-house, there stole five dollars from her — fiv«r of the precious dollars she had earned over the wash tub and saved Terror-stricken, she crept out of the house when no one was looking. Later in the night a soldier found hcr trembling in the street, and took her to i^ e . room * of the Yolm * Wom which the War Work Council had opened as a clearing-house for trou b les. The poor f rightened woman was put to bed, but she' was too miserable to sleep. The matron got up at daybreak, built a fire, and com forted her. The son's commanding officer was reached by telephone p ei|y in the morning, and the boy cam© to his mother on the first trol le ^ ar h t e could catc *' Ihe two spent long, low-voiced hours together, perhaps the last hours they will have this side of heaven. Every moment was as pre clous as a month had been last year. The old lady bad still one worry. The boy's bad cold might turn Into pneumonia if she left him. But she had not money enough to stay another night and buy a ticket home. When the matron told her that her bed was free, she broke down and Some oiu by walking. present cried and cried. "I did not know there was so much pity left in the world," sho sobbed. Because of the certainty of just such cases as this was Governmental sanction given to the activities of the War Work Council of the Y, W. C. A. From the Pacific to the Aiantic its fieiq extends.

Every state in the WOMEN AND THE WAR 'WWff By MRS. HENRY P. D^^'SON el: -.•i. Treasurer V\ r ar Work Council National Board Y. W. C. A. 1 ! Hostess Houses in the military camps all over the country are one phase of the Y. W. C. A. War Work Council's activities. These houses are placed at the entrance to the cantonments for the use of women visiting their sol dier relatives. So necessary li a v e i these proved that tents and bor rowed rooms were pressed into use until houses could be built. Often the Association rooms in the uear | j 1 sät*» reception if; k TV 'W ■KG' Ï5i 1 j j est town were turned temporar Mr*. Davison lly into hostess houses. "We put up an extra cot," re ported one western secretary, who re turned to tell the War Work Coun C 'I the special needs of her commun who came a hundred miles to see her boy in camp. She cannot sgeak a word of English and she has to have her old black pipe every hour. But Itf, "for an old Lithuanian mother her boy loves her. is the girl-wife of a 'bootlegger' ar rested for selling whisky to soldiers. He was wild with anxiety about her till we said we would look after her. Another charge bestowed upon us "A thirteen-year-old imp has just been turned over to our care. She ran away from a convent, and, be Ing adventurous, made straight for camp" Any hostess can tell you heart breaking stories of times when tbe Two Extremes. When the world is inclined to favor I it overrates as much as it will under- ^ tfttö i. •! ,t Ca\ors. inspiration, and creed are its wards. The *»sk of the War Work Council is tremend ous. Y omen of every race When the United States entered the great war the Young Women's Christian Association was. as always, working among women, call to new duties its members did not abandon their old responsibilities. The War Work Council was formed as an emergency measure to take care of the women who were caught in some of the mazes of war, Just as the parent organization has taken With the care of them through many years of peace. The varied activities decided upon by the War Work Council fol low closely the needs of the differ ent communities of the country. Sec retaries trained in the methods of organization were sent out broadcast. They were instructed to report to the National Board of the Young Women's Christian Associa tions in New York the lines of work which could be best followed in the the to various localities. These secretaries work in close cooperation with min isters, women's clubs, chambers of commerce, churches, military officials, and charitable societies. The rec ord of a day's doings of a sec.da-y reads like a novel, an economic treatise, and a psychological essay all compressed into a line-a-day entry. A secretary sent out by the War Work Council must be equal to any emergency. Miss Uliian Hull at Chii iicothe, close by Camp Sherman, hur rying along the street at nightfall came upon a forlorn couple. A Fin nish soldier had found a job for hl» wife, so that she might come on from Cleveland. When she arrived she was refused the place because she spoke no English. Their money bad been all spent on the railroad fare, and the soldier was due back at Camp. Ti e situation was bad. Thanks to Miss Hull a Chillicothian housewife now has an industrious and grateful domestic, a soldier is happy, and a soldier's wife is safe. Army folks often benefit even more ' directly from the secretaries' work, In Bremerton, Washington, a secre tary was accosted on the street by a sailor. She was a slender woman, and he had mistaken her for a girl, "May I walk along with you?'' he asked. "Surely," she replied with mature understanding and intuition. "What j is the matter? Are you homesick?" ) The lad's story came out with a was homesick, so hopelessly, despairingly heartsick that he was on the verge of deserting. But this woman gave him genuine sympathy and encouragement. She From north, south, east and west The appalling size of Systematization Om } saved him to his country. these pioneer secretaries sent in their reports, the undertaking was revealed to the War Work Council, of the work was the first step, of the multitudinous phases certain lines of work wer» -e t, e;> , "d. hostess house has been the refuge of stricken women. She can tell you also of incidents when the hostess house has brought about a happy end ing. Prayers of gratitude for the Host ess House are murmured every night in many towns by women who are no particular importance to any one except to some man in the army— and to God. The commandants of the camps are as appreciative of the hostess houses as is the most forlorn woman. No house is erected except at the direct request of the commanding officer. Fifty-four houses are now in use, others are being built as fast as him ber and carpenters can be secured. Each house has its individuality. The plans for. the building at Camp Gordon, drawn by Miss Fay Kellogg in ordet Atlanta, Georgia, were re-1 to save three magnificent oak trees A fine old Southern mansion secured for the Young Women's Christian As sociation headquarters at Petersburg, Virginia, is as popular with the sol diers from Camp Lee as is the official hostess house. The hostess houses serve the entire nation. The work with girls is one of th* most important functions of the War Work Council. It deals with all kind* of work with girls, towns, in cities, in country villages, and in the great manufacturing cen ters are all touched by the unusual conditions of a country in a state ol war preparation.
