think that the pood contained in
the canteens could be given away
indiscriminately. Cntil I came
away, no organization attempted giv

certain conditions which I will men

ed the policy of giving away our
supplies, what then? We had two
million men in France alone, to say
nothing of our two millior.s "over

Furthermore, I never could feel that
our men are the kind that wanted
something for nothing. All they
asked, and they had a right to ask
it. was that supplies be sold at fair
price. No organization behlna the

division until after the middle of
August, when I left. During action
thousand of dollars worth of sup
plies were carried to the front and
given to the men by"Y" secretaries
while occupying our first sector,
known as the Ton I sector, "Y" men
would sling sacks over their should
er, loaded with supplies and make
daily journeys' to the trenches, piv
ing away their cakes, chocolates.
fruit and tobacco. This was finally i
stopped by a military order, be-!
cause men were conirreiratitiir. YVhen
cry man of ' the first division.' thehavo - ompelled to realize that
only one or the line then was given j
again, thousands of dollars worth
of supplies as he "stepped on board
train. During our long stay in the
fields of PIccardy supplies were tak
en right up to the front, and "Y"
huts were established in dugouts.
Here the men were allowed to buy
on an order from their unit com
mander; and repeatedly supplies
were handed out to them. Here,
where we were engaged in real war
fare, the men acclaimed the "Y" a
God send. Rut it was at Soissons.
during the terrible beginning of the
allied offensive, that to me th
crowning work of the "Y" was done.
Our advance against the Germans
was so rapid that food supplies, etc.,
were left far behind. Our men
fought for two, and in many cases
almost three days without food. The
"Y" hurriedly established a ware
house ten miles behind and rushed
supplies up before even our army
units could get there. For six days
the "Y" three-ton trucks were kept
busy rushing supplies up, and not
one penny was asked. Thousands
of dollars worth of cookies, choco
late, tobacco, etc., was given away.
I had a part in this labor of love.
If any man who was there, could
honestly criticize the organization
after what was done in those aw
ful days:, then Clod pity such a per
son. Two: "It has been said that tb
Y. M. C. A. did nothing for the sick
and wounded. I can well :invei-
this. I was taken away from the I
hrst trench mortar battery to open I

policy as were other "Y" secretaries
in those hospitals. I did. Never a
man came in, and we had many, !
whether it was night or day, but
what he was met with hot chocolate
and cookies and cigarettes. Indeed,
we were doing so much of this work
among our sick and wounded that
the Red Cross entered a protest. A
conference was called and it was
decided that the "Y" keep out of
hospitals, except by way of enter
tainment, leaving it to the Tied
Cross. We would have stuck to the
serving of men in the hospitals if
possible, but the Red Cross felt we
were taking their territory. How
ever, "Y" entertainers were sent to
the hospitals and more entertain
ments were given there then any
etiler place.

Three: "We have heard that the
"Y"charged outrageous prices. I
must say this is wrong. Prior to
June 1."., IMS it may have appear
ed but that was not the fault
of the organization. The men de
manded certain things we were
forced to buy them from the French.
hence had to charge accordingly.
Rut supplies that came from Ameri
ca were always sold cheaper than
they could be brought here. Those
storU s of a dollar for a package of
cigarettes are untrue. If a man
were charged that much it was not
the fault of the "V." but some mean i
scoundrel who ought to have been i
trounced. There were
a few such'
tuen "over there" in "Y" service, (
but they were guickly sent home i
when these things became known, j
After June löth commissary prices I
went into trttcl in all "Y" canteens j
and everything was bought cheaper

Afford Critlci-in.
iV;:r: "We hve heard that "V
crctaries ne er went Into the ian-
ee. l'i rlijiK this is too ab-
surd to dwell upon. Personally, I
never knew a red triangle man who
was afraid to po to th front. In
deed it was just the opposite every
man fought for the chance. In our
division, we had an order that every
secretary must follow his unit and
he did. In I'iccardy twelve of our
men were passed. At Soissons, thre
working alonptdde of mysdf, were
wounded, one maimed for life. In
the Arponne some were killed,
among them a form r pastor of this
tlty, Uev. John Adamas Lynn, was
killed. Another one of the host
friends I had in Frar-e, a Mr. Gibson.
There has never been a time when
they have not been secretaries at the
front, with blood as red as any
man's. Hence this criticism is un
founded. Five: "Wo have heard that V.
M. C. A. men went to France mere
ly out of curiosity. I'erhij they
did. May it not be that heaps of tho

This week's "Harpain Day." Wed
nesday, will be one of exceptional
opportunities for the buying public
of Mishawaka and surruonding ter
ritory. Since tho inception of this
,trading vent in the city, merchants
ami public alike have begun to look
forwardd with interest to its com
inp. It is an acknowledged fact
that dining the past three Wednes
days more trading has been done
than lias ever been the case in any
three o;iys in the history of Mithi-
IVople from the country
they can l.uy to better advantage at
home, everything considered, than
elsewhere, hence the growing num
bers that are now giving local mer
chants that patronage that has here
tofore been going out of town. The
attendance of those- rural buyers in
the city every Wednesday Is highly
pleasing to the merchants who by
their liberal inducements are gain
ing many new customers. That the
city folks are also highly apprecia
tive of the efforts of the merchants
is testified to by the crowds which
throng the stores of those advertis
ing for the event from early morn
ing to closing time Wednesdays.
Every advertisement in tomorrow's
