LIGHT ON "Y" WORK.
In Lecture at Brethren Church U. S. Duncan Explains Over seas Service. Following is a summary of the overseas work of the Y. M. C. A., given at the Brethren church in this city Sunday night by U. S. Duncan, who spent nearly a year . ,,_ _ Belgium—part of the time avj.1i the famous 91st Division. There was à total of 5,693 men and 2,657 women secretaries over seas in March, and 4,763 in home camps. Most of these men were local business and professional men, recommended by leading local people. They were carefully selected, because out of 150,000 recom mended, only 48,000 got to New York and of that number only 11, 229 were sent overseas. The Association operated in 3356 points—1507 with the A. E. F. and 1849 with the French and prisoners of Avar. Some 1600 huts were built dur ing 1918. Ten million sheçts of writing paper were furnished weekly, at an expense of $37,000 per week. One thousand picture machines were operated, and fifty to one hundred groups of entertainers were continually on the road from camp to camp. Athletic material to the amount of $1,400,000 was given to the boys in 1918 ; 100 athletic fields were in operation and over 300 trained physical directors were in charge of the work. Scores of large hotels were operated for the men at a mini mum rate per day and with as nearly home cooking as could he gotten in Prance. An average of 100,000 men at tended the Franch classes each month ; many thousands of negro stevedores learned to read and write over there. Thousands ol soldiers attended the institutes on scientific farming, under the lead ership of Dr. Kenyon L. Butter field, of the Massachusetts Agri cultural college. Regular services for protest ants, Catholics and Jews were . held in the huts to hold men fast to the faith that they had. Secretaries traveled on the transports to fun/ish entertain ment, writing paper, and on the ns and a half in France and way back, furnished candy and smokes free to the men. At the request of the army, the association took charge of over 30 rsorts and made leave areas with a capacity of 50,000 men. A typical program for January, 1918, at the Aix-les-Bains twenty-seven complete villes, 31 band concerts, dances, 62 orchestra concerts, 96 musical concerts, 42 lectures, 96 movie shows, 5 stunt nights, as well as daily excursions to the nearby Alps. The Association acted as store keeper for the A. E. F. handling an average of $12,630,000 worth of goods per month during 1918. »At Gen. Pershing's request Mr. Raymond B. Fosdick, who had charge of all the war activities, looked into the matter of prices, etc., and reported that the Assoc iation was not making any money on canteen goods sold, goods were sold at from 60 to 75 per cent of what they were re tailing for at the same time in this country. Some $1,400,000 worth of goods were given away to the men in 1918, and $3,172,500 is set aside for the same purpose this year. Fifty thousand papers daily were given away in the Argonne, and 4000 daily were distributed by airplane. Any goods that could be gotten to the front lines were given away. A million and a half men re ceived Christmas packages from the Y. M. C. A. We never had more than half enough men ; never more than half the space needed to get sup plies across the water and never more than 40 per cent of the nec essary trucks. With the 91st Disision we had only two trucks, one. Ford and a motorcycle, and never more than 23 men, when we should have had 65 men to properly care for a division. Gen. Johnstone stated recently, at Camp Lewis, that we couldn't have gotten our goods to the front if we had trucks, as the two roads were jammed all the time with more necessary mater ial. Over 700 secretaries were with the troops in the Argonne, and when they* couldn't get goods they turned in and worked as stretcher bearers or worked with the wounded at the dressing sta tions. Army authorities told us -|, were getting a lemon, when they was : vaude 12 The we turned over the canteen, but in sisted on our taking it so that 10,000 more men could be releas ed for combat purposes. Dr. Woods Hutchinso;i , when he returned from service abroad, stated that if all the against the Association were true it would only 1 per cent ineffient as compared with 99 per cent ef ficiency. Geo. W. Perkins in a recent report put the percentage of inefficiency at 5 per cent and stated that was remarkably low, considering the great percentage of men who were untrained for such work. criticism» ORIENTAL PAGEANT AT CHAUTAUQUA Jullua Caeear Nayphe on Opening Night.

There la only one way to cure catarrhal deafness, and that Is by a constitutional remedy. Catarrhal Deafness Is caused by an In flamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube Is Inflamed you have a rumbling sound or Im perfect hearing, and when It Is entirely closed. Deafness la the résuit. Unless the Inflammation can be reduced and this tube restored to Its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever. Many cases of deafness are caused by catarrh, which Is an Inflamed condition of the mucous sur faces. Hall's Catarrh Medicine acts thru the blood system.
