PLENTY TO DO AND EVERYBODY DOING IT
Every man for himself and devil take the lonesomest, Is, apparently, the philosophy of Uncle Sam's soldier boys
In the great mllitary camps where they are undergoing intensive training for the real thing "over there." Here is
a typical scene in an army Y. M. C. A. building an hour or two. before the formal entertainment begins. On the
stage one of the boys in khaki is lea4ing an Informal "sing song." About two score of the fellows are up there with
him, and it must he a pretty good song, for It can be seen that about half the crowd in the building is facing the
music. But this doesn't disturb the nine or ten checker games, seen in the foreground, in the least, nor doea it get
the goat of the scores of fellows who are grabbing a few minutes in which to write to the folks at home. The man in
the extreme right front of the picture has receilved a newspaper from "the little old town back there." while the boy
seen standing In the very center of the pictlre plainly admits himself to be either on a "point" or on a "pose"-it's
nobody's bu~dness which. The Y. 31. C. A. huts are the soldiers' clubs, churches, homes and whatever else they want
to make them. The principal cantonments of the country contain frImn ten to twenty large "Y" buildings, to ay
bothing of the huts overseas and outposts on the Mexican border.

YOUNG AIA;ERINE MADE
The fact that the youngest Major in
the United States army is an Algerine
makes all our people feel proud of
young Major Joseph Lawton Collins.
Major Collins is only twenty-two years
old, and graduated just last April as
second lieutenant from West Point
Academy. He is now stationed at
Syracuse Recruiting Company, New
York, and is of the 22nd infantry.
Major Collins is the son of Mrs. J.
B. Collins, and formerly resided at the
corner of Elmira Avenue and Eliza

Broadway. He is also the nephew of
Mayor Behrman and Peter S. Lawton.

the name "Wild Bill" and Is valued
at $600. It is equipped with a 4
cylinder Preston engine and the ex

seat towards the stern.
RED CROS8 NOTES.
For some days startling events at
home consumed our whole time and
energy. As usual the Red Cross
proved itself a band of mercy, when
Red Cross headquarters were aban
doned at the K. of C. Home and the
building converted into an emergency
hospital, with many of our Red Cross
members as nurses and aides to the
physicians, and clergy of .Algiers.
Our Branch chairlady, Mrs. E. Mills,
Is a leader among the ladies, who
are working so admirably among the
suffering in this dreadful crisis.
The Surgical Dressings class, now
working at the Belleville School An
nex, has completed since the last re
port 2126 operating masks, which
have been delivered to the New Or
leans Chapter A. R. C. There still
remains 2274 to be made. The work
has been greatly retarded by the
prevailing epedemic, which has ma
terially diminished our working
force. Owing to the very small
number of workers who have come
to the workroom during the morning
hours, it has been decided to work
in the afternoon only, until further
notice, therefore our workroom will
be open every day except Saturday
from 1:00 to 5:00.
The emergency order for 2000
81-A pads still remains untouched
and the October allotment consisting
of 200 2-A pads and 100 muslin bags
has just been received. Thus it will
be seen that a large number of work
ers are needed to turn out this
amount of work. Therefore. we
urge those who have not yet partici
pated in the work of our -branch to
do so to make up the deficit.
A false impression has been made
upon the minds of many of the Al
gers people concerning salaries of
Red Cross workers. There is abso
lutely no pay -attached to the work,
save for office force and negro de
livery men of the New Orleans Chap
ter. All others, from the general
chairman and captains of work in
the branches, who give their undl
vided time or a -large division of time
to the work to the persons who de
votes an hour weekly, the only re
muneration is the satisfaction of do
ing one's meagre part to bring
some aid and comfort to our bleed
ing. fighting men. These ideals can
not be measured in money. The
work itself is really paying a debt
we owe to those whose names we find
daily on the ever-increasing casualty
lists. As the lists of the wounded
grow, the lists of the Red Cross
workers should grow In proportion
if we are to meet the demands made
upon us y our overseas hospitals
for carrying on the work of saving
our American boys.
We hope this message will reach
every one in Algiers. who had that
false impression, and we hope also
to add many names of ladles who
are willing to work in Algiers for
the boys at the front, with a sense of
hraving done their duty, as their
only, yet greatest reward.

GiROU'NID SH I'TED lF)R NEW
HOUSEI AT NAVY YARD.
The United States government has
selected the site for its community
housing project to take care of the em-ra
ployes at the Algiers Naval Station.
The site, embracing forty-four acres,
lies south of and immediately adjacent
to the naval station, the property of
J. J. Manson, M. Abascal and Gus
Kohn. Authority to purchase or con
demn the tract was given George W.
Person, negotiator, United States
Housing Corporation, Thursday la a
telegram from the Department of La
bor, of which the housing corporation
is a bureau. One of the three tracts
has been purchased. Action on the
other two will be taken within a day
or two, Mr. Pearson says.
Approximately 200 comfortable and
modern houses will be erected. The
number decided upon Is based upon the
return of questionnaires sent employes
who signified their desire to remove to
the community. At present the em
ploye are scattered about Algiers and
New Orleans proper.
Construction work will follow instal
lation of sewerage, water and other
utilities. J. W. Billingsley. civil en
gineer, of this city, is now in Wash
ington. It is expected that he will re
turn in a few days.and begin work on
the project. Messrs. Pavrot & Ivau
ais, architects, will supervise the erec
ion of the buildings when the utilities
have been installed.
Originally a site of approximately
thirty-seven acres, lying west of the
naval station was considered. Mr. Per.
son rejected it when he viewed the one
now selected. The sit decided upon
abuts the street car line; It is near the
public school and oppostte the main
entrance to the naval station. "I con
sider the site far superior to the one
originally pointed out," Mrs. Person
said Prilday. "!t will make a beautiful
development for the government em
ployes. The original site was not so
handy to the station; it lies near the
Southern Pacific railroad yards-an
objection on account of the noise and
smoke: twenty homes are on that site,
requiring removing, whereas there Is
but one on the tract selected."
