In each of faee a soldier was strum ming on a piano; others were reading books and m&eazlnes; hundreds were writing etters home. Behind the raised counter at one end three or four young men were busy passing out notepaper and envelopes, selling stamps and weighing parcels, which the men were sending home. One of the soldiers said to me as I stood In the tent nsed chiefly by men from Iowa: "We came all the way here from Des Moines, and we were mighty lonely. Then wa found .this T. M. C. A. on the job, and It's been a home and more than a home to us. It gav us what we wanted when we needed it most We'll never forget it The boys' best friend is the T. M, O.

What an appeal to the sympathies those great groups of soldiers make! Vine, clean-cut, upstanding fellows, some of them mere bora, one thinks Immediately of the sacrifice they have made for the rest of us and how pre cious they are to some one back home. 8omewhere, In far off farm or village or city street, there are parents or brothers or wives who would give all they possess for one glimpse of those sunburned faces as yon and I see them on their last night before going acmes. And It was with a throb of the heart that I watched them, bent over their letter paper, In one after another of those seven big tents. These were the tents of the 7. M. C A. On that last night In America the association was sevlng the soldiers la the best of all ways giving them an opportunity to write home. On previous nights they had enjoyed box lag bouts, movies, concerts, dramatics and a score of healthy entertainments as well as religious meetings. But on this last night borne ties were strong est. 4nd perhaps that Is the keynote of the splendid work the T. M. C. A. Is doing among our men in uniform keeping them In touch with borne. Magic Words, "With the Colore." In these times there are some let ters that mean more to us tnan any we have ever read before. They are written on sheets of paper stamped with the Stars and Stripes and the red triangle of the T. M. C A., and they bear the magic words, "With the Colors.'' There are many more than a million such letters In the mails now wall an .nad this. PerhAfls u at part of the world to another than sta tistics can exprees. Statistics are pretty poor anyway when It comes to reckoning in terms of love and human tenderness. Lot's put It this way: That the T. M. a A. is the biggest ex press company the world has ever seen, and the parcels It Is handling are the loves and devotions of human beings. World's Best Loved Trademark. This war has made us think hard and fast Tour boy or your neigh bors boy or some boy you know and love has been called to do his share In the big job of policing the world for democracy and human liberty. Is It any comfort to you to know that wher ever his duty may call him your boy will nave a friend that will serve him in body, mind and soul? Are you glad to know that this friend will place books and magazines at his disposal, organize classes to teach him what ever he wants to learn, give him a pocket testament and invite him to join religious meetings of the faith that he was brought up In? Did you realize that the association provides athletic equipment for his favorite games, teaches him games If he knows none and holds concerts, lectures, movies, Bible classes, dramatic enter tainments and every kind of whole some amusement to keep him interest ed? Are you glad to know that this friend will go with him overseas, help to shield him from a score of difficult and dangerous temptations and follow him right up to the front line trench and beyond it? The last contact the soldier has with this life he loves so well Is a cup of tea given him by the 7. M. C A. free just before he goes "over the top" to a band to hand strag gle with the enemy. And as be comes tottering back from No Han's Land, wounded, but strong enough and plucky enough to keep on his feet, even before bis wounds ere dressed the 7. M- C. A. Is waiting for nim with tea and sweet chocolate, the great com forts of the man In the trenches.

In each of the draft camps the 7. MCA has ten secretaries engaged In educational work. The association Is seeing to It that every man who cannot speak English Is taught to do so.
