I lie At i" y " j of the Southeast, taking in the can tonments and naval stations of seven States ha3 just issued the annual statistical report for the flacal year, July 1, 1917, to July 1. 1918. This report will be a highly prized military document when the war la over. To-day it reveals more em phatically, more pertinently than anything else, the vest work that is being done by the- Red Triangle workers in the huts sifuato in every military training institution in the Southeast. Figures are usually dry and hard to digest. These figures tell a thou sand and one stories of the help that has been given to the boys from the North, the South, the East and the "West, who have worn the uniform of the American soldier in tho camps In Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, the Carolinas, Mississippi and Florida. They show just what the Y. M. C. A. is doing in the Army and Navy of the Southeast. These figures have been prepared by tho statistical de partment and have been submitted to S. A. Ackley, General Secretary of tho War Work Council in the South east. In a compilation of general ac tivities at the camps under Y. M. C. A. direction, it is estimated that the attendance in the "Y" huts for the year reached 38,866,980 men. That the huts were generally filled With soldier boys is proven in this esti mate figure for the buildings altho generally large are not extremely so. It is also Btated that 32,889,002 letters were written by coldiers in the Y. M. C. A. huts and in almost every ca30 upon the "Y" stationery furnished free to the men. The report collected from all the camps in the Southeast further shows that "Y" workers in the huts here wrote out $2,463,744 worth of mon ey orders for American 3oldicr boys. This means that tho splendid men sent back home to relatives prac tically thi3 entire amount. The educational activities cover ed a wide field, and included every thing from kindergarten classes In English for foreigners to University French courses. Just. 4,005 lectures of an educational veirwcro given by the Y. M. C. A. in Rod Triangle buildings, with an attendance of 1,291,243.' The educational claWes of various kindn aggregated 64,813 and the attendance wa3 978,045. Book3 circulated by tho "Y" to soldiers numbered 764,710, educa tional clubs formed among the men were 649 and the attendance at these club meetings attained a numerical figure of 25,179. Physical activities conducted by the Y. M. C. A. in the Southeastern camps during the year vaulted to an amazing figure. It is estimated 3,683,350 participated in tho various physical activities, such as baseball, track and field meets, volley ball, etc. The spectators, the majority of them soldiers, at these "Y" physical activities are estimated at 5,646,318. These figures are significant for they tell not only of the great number of men the "Y" interested in healthful athletics but also show how millions who looked on were amused and had their minds taken off harmful in fluences not tending to upbuild the morale of the army. Perhaps one of the major aims of the "Y" in the Army and Navy has been to show tho soldier boy that he should not forget to nurture his spiritual needs. Not only does the yearly report prove that the "Y" has not neglected to look after the religious side of the men's lives, but conclusively shows that religious in fluences have been exerted with a telling effect that might not have been achieved in civilian life. The resume of religious activities shows that 3,464,451 persons at tended 16,468 religious meetings un der "Y" auspices in the South east, that 21,288 Bible classes were form ed among the soldiers with attend ances ranging at 395,348, that 223,232 scriptures wero distributed, that "Y" workers had 157,533 per sonal Christian interviews with sol diers, that the boys made 43,093 Christian decisions and that 72,693 signed the Religious War Roll. The attendance at the "Y" social activities in the hut3 was phe nomenal, 3,713,609 attending 8,190 entertainments. Tho attendance at "Y" movie show3 in the huts was even larger, 7 the attendance being estimated at 4,678,530 for 8,222 per formances. With the Army and Navy con tinually growing in-size, indications are now that the next fiscal year will perhaps nearly double theso really colossal activities. Go to Wright's for your merchant lunch.
