Men's Christian association carried the
red triancle into the camps and
Trenches abroad at a cost of 57 lives,
a sacrifice proportionately one-quarter
as great as tnat in the American army,
according: to a statement issued today
iy the national war work council of
the Y. M. C. A. Of these fatalities C9
were due to disease, and the remainder
to shell fire, bombs, gas fever, drown
inpr and wounds. Ten of these were
-women, one of whom was killed for
shell fire and another in a German air
There were also 55 non-fatal casual
ties. These were due principally to
inauliine-jcun fire. gas. shell fire and
motor transport accidents. Numerous!
cases of slight wounds and .passings, I
which were attended at dressing sta
tions, but were not reported to head
quarters, are not included.
These casualties occurred in a force
which at no time exceeded 9000 work
ers, of whom it is reckoned that more
ihan one-half were never sent to the
Iront, beinwr employed in the hundreds
of huts maintained throughout the
training areas and the "leave areas."
6it "V Workers Decern ted.
Sixty-three " Y" workers were deco-,
rated, while in all more than 152 re
ceived official recognition for distin
guished service. Thirteen of these were
decorated with the Croix de CJuerre,
while 50 received other decorations.
Of these, three received the distin
guished service cross; three the Order
of St. Stanislaus; five the Italian Cava
Jiere del Corona; 38 the Italian war
cross, and -one the French decoration
of the Corps d'Armee. Seven were cited
lor the Croix de Guerre, and seven for
other decorations, six commended for
meritorious conduct and 29 received
honorable mention in dispatches. Sev
eral units were cited in their entirety,
those serving with the third division
being cited twice. -More than a score
more reported- decorations have not
jet been confirmed.
Not one of these men under 30 was
fit for military duty but the citations
show that they carried on with the
same courage and spirit that identi
fied Americans throughout the war.
These records show that they went

Others were sacrificed in the less
rieroic but no less necessary work be-
Jiind the lines. Among these stands
out Miss Winona Martin of Rockville
Center. L. I., a Y. M. C. A. secretary,
who was the first American woman
killed in the war. She was killed by a
bomb during a. German air raid, and
her death made a deep impression on
American minds. i
Miss Martin had been in Paris only
a month, but had already done valu
ble work in stimulating an interest
among the soldiers in the Y. M. C. A.

Dr. John IT. Hoyd, elected to fill the
position of professor of homiletios and
missions at the McCormick Theological
seminary in Chicago, has not yet de
cided to accept the offer. This was his
reply yesterday to reports that he had
made up his mind to leave Portland
for the eastern work.
"I have made no public announcement
of my plans." said Ir. Boyd, who for
the past eight years has been pastor of
the l-'irst Presbyterian church, "and I
shall not announce my decision for
some time yet. Any report to the con
trary is unauthorized."
The McCormick school Is regarded as
one of the leading Presbyterian schools.
Dr. Boyd, while a minister in Evans
ton. Chicago suburb, taught at the In
stitution. -
Dr. Boyd'a Activities Extensive.
Dr. Boyd has not confined his activi
ties to the church. He has been active
in every form of civic and social enter
prise and has assumed leadership in
many of these enterprises. In patriotic
work he has also taken more than his
share, while he has brought the aid of
the church to every worthy undertaking.
Establishment of a workingman'i
home mission in the north end has
grown into a wide field of endeavor.
He has neglected no opportunity to
widen the social horizon of the church
and has preached the gospel of social
democracy. During the past year he
has interested himself in a movement
to bring closer together the various
protestant denominations.
Dr. Hill Taken 12 Years As.
Dr. Edgar P. Hill, formerly pastor of
the First Presbyterian church, went to
fill the same position 12 years ago. He
now is- secretary of the board of edu
cation of the Presbyterian church.
With the wider field which the prof
fered position offers and with the
chance to train numbers of young men
in the ministry, friends of Dr. Boyd are
expecting that he will finally decide to
accept the eastern call.
Dr. Boyd during his Portland pas
torate has built up the church into one
of the leading institutions of the city.
The. membership has increased from
1400 to 2300. while the church debt has
been reduced by $36,000. Building of
the church house adjoining the main
building is another achievement of his
work here.
There is believed to be nothing In
local conditions that would warrant
Dr. Boyd in leaving hi present work.
but the opportunity for wider service,
together with the feeling that he soon
may be forced to lay down his active
ministry work, is expected to have a
big part In his decision.
