. 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."'
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
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.
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.

stigma it has never succeeded in freeing itself.
The charge that 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
"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."

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
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

essary to appeal to the Italian government over
the head of the people.
The average man knows that people are fight

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.
