CHIEF WILMAN E. ADAMS, Executive Secretary, Army Y. M. C. A* Southern Department. Direction of all Army Y. M. C.

M. C. A have : grown until there is now in | opera tion, or in process of construction, one Y. if. C. A. building for every 3,500 sol diers located In these Southwestern states. When it Is .remembered that there are several hundred thousand soldiers in training in the Southern Department camps, including Camp Iravis, Camp Pike, Camp Bowie, Camp McArthur, Camp Cody, Camp Doni phan, Fort Sill, Camp Beanregard, Kelly Field, and the other great flying fields of the department, It will be un derstood that Mr. Adarfis occupies a position of similar importance to that of a Major GeneraL In addition to the camp activities of the Army Y. M. C. A. directed by Mr. Adams and efficiently executed by his army of men in the uniform of the Bed Friangle, the Southern Department executive secretary, has under his supervision the Army Y. M. C.

AT THE FOUNTAIN m wmmm âæW-' % * IS R» VW j * Here is a familiar scene in any Y. M. C. A. building at onr army camps. Ice-cooled water "bubblers" quench the thirst of thousands of soldiers, and during a "run" on. the fountains the "water line" often extends across the building. The Army Y. M. C. A. is the en listed man's dub, where he may read, write letters, buy stamps and post cards, have bundles wrapped free of charge, get money orders, play games, and meet his comrades for a social hour. The bubbling cold water fountain is one of the most popular advantages offered the soldiers by the Army "Y" In the Southern department, which Is composed of Texas, Arkansas, Okla homa, Louisiana, New Mexico and Arizona.
