DR.LEN BROUGHTON
PRAISES Y.M.C.A,
Noted Southern Clergyman
Wants to Go to France With
Association
Dr. Len G. Broughton, well-known
through the South and helpful in army
Y. M. C. R. work, is anxious to go to
France. In a recent interview he said:
Dr. Broughton's work in military camps
and his projected trip abroad is in con
nection with the Y. M. C. A. war work-
“The work that the Y. M. C. A. is do
ing is the biggest thing that has been
accomplished in the way of moral
and religious endeavor.” he said.
“It is making better soldiers, keeping
the men from being homesick and discon
tented and listless. It is helping them
morally, besides forming a link between
the camp and the home which takes a
great deal of the horror of separation from
this business of war.
“It is not definitely settled whether I
shall go abroad. 1 hope I can. I want
the opportunity to do something in close
touch with our men and to do what I can
to see this thing through.
See Long War Ahead.
“We are in for a long and terrible war.
“Germany is in better shape today than
she was a year ago, having conquered
agricultural territory enough to raise her
food for the rest of the time, and being
able to sell all her bonds without even
the aid of women’s committees and Boy
Scouts—to sell them at par and for cash.
We have got to be patient and unselfish
and ready for self-denial and sacrifice.
"I was one of these fellows who
thought we should have gone into the war
at the start. When Germany sank the
Lusitania we had as much justification
to get in as we had when we did enter.
An dthen we would have gone into it be-

fore Germany had made her conquests in
eastern Europe—before she had. overrun
and devastated so much territory. Our
entery then might have been the salvation
of much.
“But that is past. We are in for it
now. Germany will be whipped as Na
poleon was whipped. Except for the
western front, Germany has gained every
thing she set out to gain, and maybg
more. But as Napoleon was overthrown,
so will the kaiser be. It is the same
story over. The job won’t be easy,
though, and it is going to take all that is'
in us.”
