The Young Men’s Chris tian Association which operates your local USO Club in celebrating its one-hundredth anniversary this year (1944). For one-hundred years the association has held fast to the “C” in Y. M. C. A., and in everytihng it atempts to promote, the most potent factor underlying the promotion is the sincere desire to enhance, glorify, and perpetuate those deep religious sense of val ues. This underlying pholosophy of the Y. M. C. A. is no doubt the reason for Rev. Stalnaker’s addition to the National Staff for the pur pose of counseling with USO Clubs, post chaplains, and ministers with the hope that we all may add tre mendously to the spiritual life of our men in service.
