At a recent similar campaign in
Seattle A. W. Hogue, the chairman
of the committee, said to his work-
era just starting out:
“The genius of this new Y. M. C.
A. enterprise lies not in its outlay
for equipment, but in its promotion
of the fullest use of that already in
the district. We have now splendid
facilities for boys’ work in our
schools, churches, playgrounds, li
brary, lakes, etc., and fine work is
being done. But, likewise, the op
portunity for more and more effec
tive training is apparent. A move
ment in this direction, which bases
its program on sound methods, deals
in a purely co-operative way, aad
summons the entire community to
unselfish concern over its boy prob
lems, surely merits support.”
