MONTEREY, VA., OCT. 3, 1919
Since every influential official,
from the Governor down, is in favor
of the S. & P. construction, it would
seem possible to hurry the work a
little. It is figured that, at the pres
ent rate of progress the West Vir
ginia line will be reached in 1939.

He has purchased a dairy farm in
eluding all live stock, machinery,
feed, etc. He says New Yorkers are
very kind and sociable people, ana
reports all those who have gone

Attention Voters
I wish to say I stand for good roads
and especially for schools, and solicit
voters with this understanding. I
wish to make no false promises to
any voter. This announcement is
made because I might over-look some
one in my canvass, and I want all of
this district to know where I stand
on the^e two important questions.

tMC.A. COMMENDED
BY MAJOR FORWARD
^ f
State Corporation Commissioner, who
served with Red Cross overseas,
speaks in high praise of work per
formed by the Army Y.
"If the Young Men's Christian Asso
ciation had done nothing in Europe
except to provide motion picture thea
tres and its theatrical entertainments,
it would have been worth every dollar
contributed to the organization by the
American people," asserted Major
Alexander Forward, a member of the
Virginia State Corporation Commis
sion, in an address in Richmond. This
statement is regarded as coming with
added force because Major Forwardv
was not connected with the Y. M. C. A.,
but was in the service of the American
Red Cros? in Europe.
"But for these entertainments," lie
continued, "the boys would have had
nowhere to go in the evenings, but
would inevitably have drifted into a
search for diversions that would in
many cases have been demoralizing
to them personally mid disastrous to
the cause for which we were fight&g.
I am under the impression" that the
number of moving pictures operated
each night in France alone exceeded
1,500, and in addition, troops of profes
sional entertainers and theatrical com
panies contstantly visited every camp.
"The large program made necessary
by these activities was very costly.
Theatre; had to be secured, in some
cases they were leased, in others,
bought; in others, built for the occa
sion. The entertainers had to be paid,
and there was the overhead expense of
administration. But it was worth it,
every cent."
Major Forward's duties took him to
most of the countries of Europe, and
he had ample opportunity to observe
the work of the various organizations.
"The Red Cross," he says, "was engag
ed in feeding the hungry, clothing the
naked, healing the sick, among the
civilian population in the devasted re
gions of France and Italy and the Bal
kans. Its work among our soldiers
and sailors was confined in the main to
the operation of canteens at railway
stations and steamship wharves, and to
the maintenance of home service
work, helping to keep up communica
tion between the boys and their people
in America. On the other hand, it was
the mission of the Young Men's Chris
tian Association to provide wholesome
amusement ayd recreation among our
soldiers, and ' so surround them with
proper and attractive diversions. The
canteen v/ork of the Y. M. C. A. was
incidental to ^he main purpose of the
organization which was to keep our
men out cf amusements of the demor
alizing sort, in the camps' and billets
and" leave areas, .a purpose which was
splendidly accomplished."
