Of the six social organizations working with the American troops in France the Salvation 'Army was the most popular with the men, ac cording to Raymond Fosdick, chairman of the commission, on training camp activities, who re rently returned from Europe, where for five months he was attached to General . Pershing's Staff as a civilian adviser. In a statement made public by the war depart ment. Fosdick reviewed at length the social wel fare work of the Y. M. C. A., the Y. W. C. A., Knights of Columbus, Jewish Welfare Board, Salvation" Army, and American Library Asso ciation. - Summing up his observations, he de clared: " . . "It seems to me the lesson of the war involves . perhaps three points : The elimination of secre tarian auspices, reduction in the number of agen cies employed, the transfer to the government! itself of much of the activity hitherto left to pri vate initiative."' "Rpf u t-j.-.,. ... . , about civic and county pride. mc ax. vi&txiii.ixiivus, rusiucit loia oi criticisms of its work by men in the service. '.' ' "Some of this criticism is merited; much of it is due, I believe, to misunderstanding," he ob served. "Probably the bulk of the criticism CLEAN UP PENSACOLA. In view of the relief which has been given in certain sections of the city through work of pub lic health officers, where the mosquito has been both a misery and a menace, and the attention which is being paid the disposal of fecund mat ter, attention is called to the great need for cleaning up the streets of the city of Pensacola. If fecund and decaying matter is a menace to health, then Pensacola is in a bad way, for the streets of the city are a disgrace to any com munity. While the city and , county officials hesitate and cogitate, as to whether they will meet the state health officers half way and furnish their just share of money to place this community and county in a sanitary condition, things are getting worse and worse on the public thoroughfares, and fecund matter and refuse are allowed to de cay and furnish food for flies. Some criticism has been made of the state board of health, because it is claimed that it has more money than it knows what to do with. This statement deserves the censure of all right thinking people. If the state board is to do its work effectively, it certainly must have funds .to work with. In other states the work of the state board of health and the counties and cities are carried on together. a Section 13 of the city charter says: "All health and quarantine matters shall be adminis tered in accordance with the established public health system of the state of Florida, and such public health laws as are now in force or may hereafter be enacted ; also in accordance with ex isting cfiy ordinances .and such ordinances as the commissioners may hereafter legally enact. Nothing in this act shall be construed so as to affect the powers with which the state board of health is now and may hereafter be legally in vested." How can the state put its money to good use, unless the counties and communities stand ready to lend their co-operation ? Why should the peo ple of Pensacola and Escambia county look to the United States public health service and the state board of health to take every step for the im provement of health conditions here? Pensacola needs every bit of attention, every degree of caution, every ounce of prevention which may be secured through co-operation. The people of Pensacola and Escambia county talk But conditions speak louder than words. It i3 time county and city authorities realized .their responsibilities to the people. While we are waiting to decide what we are going to do, is sag m TALLAHASSEE 33 3 5f IF HE COULD SPEAK FOR HIMSELF! arises from the operation by the Y. M.. C.

A. made money out cf the canteen business is, of course, erroneous. However high its prices may have been in in dividual localities, considered as a business ven ture the total results show large losses. "Another ground for criticism of the Y. M. C. A., was in the character of the personnel. "While many of the men chosen to work among the troops were excellently qualified," he continued, "many of the men were utterly unadapted to this purpose, and had no common ground in mixing with our virile, red-blooded young soldiers." The excuse for this situation, Fosdick believed, was that "the best men for this kind of work were themselves in the army, and other sources . of workers had to be tapped." Fosdick paid high tribute to the women work ers, declaring that the average woman worker attached to a hut is worth four of five men work ers. "Her effect on the morale and spirit of the troops is extraordinary," he declared. "An Tion-est-to-God American Girl as the soldiers call her, can do more to keep the men cheerful and to create an atmosphere of home than any other factor. "Their work has been in no small degree re sponsible for the unflagging devotion and inex haustible patience with which our troops carried forward their high enterprise." Speaking of the Salvation Army, Fosdick de clared it was the "inner spirit of service of this organization that has endeared it to the heart of the doughboy." Its personnel was carefully selected, he said, and consisted of men and wom en who "knew how to meet their fellow-men on a common plane, and no task has been too humble and no service too small for them to perform for the troops." and clean up Pensacola and keep it clean. Spo radic efforts counts little. It is real day in and day out attention that counts. Senator Moses urges the nomination of Leon ard Wood for the presidency, and we suppose Moses will pilot him through the political wilder ness. THE FUTURE. A young man said, "If there was only some way I could see myself in the future, how much easier it would be now." We can see ourselves in the future if we, are willing to make an honest inventory of our in tentions. Here are a few formulas to go by: If I am thrifty, honest and interested in my neighbors I am pretty sure of a home, a good income and many friends in after years. If I am selfish, grabbing and looking after my own interests only, the future will contain money in plenty, perhaps, a house and a few acquaint ances who avoid me except when my position or my money will benefit them. If I want to do big things and am willing to make the sacrifices to attain my desires, I'll get them. And, so on through a great long list of ifs that will show you what you will be in years to come. But, you must be honest with yourself in look ing ahead. You've got to go beneath your daily attitude toward life and find out if the attitude is grounded on solid rock. Otherwise the formu la will not work. When abstract justice and national aspiration lock horns, it is time to order a coffin for ab stract justice. Wilson appealed to the Italian people over the heal of their government, and it may yet be nec essary to appeal to the Italian government over the head of the people. The average man knows that people are fight ing from the Gulf of Finland to the Crimea, but he doesn't know whether it is the force of cir cumstances or force of habit. It would be much easier to settle all boundary questions if all the nations felt as pious as they did last October. It is easy to be an idealist if a wide ocean sep- arates you from the seat of trouble. Tallahassee, June 27. Mr. Frank E. Davis, of Quiney. was the guest of his sister, Mrs. George E.
