Tlic Toung 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 laid. 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 that they exposed themselves under over the top with the assaulting waves, machine gun and shell fire to minister latigably as stretcher bearers and that to the wounded, that they worked inde Ihey drove ambulances into the midst of battle to rescue the wounded. Woman Killed by Bomb. 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. in Paris. Miss Marion G. Crandal of Alameda, Cal., killed by shell fire near. Chalons March 26, 1918, was another of the women sacrificed in helping the sol diers. The citation of the units attached to the third division, consisting of 34 men and six women, by Major-General Hickman, reads in partt "The commanding general desires to make of record in the general orders of this division his appreciation of the part taken by the members of the Y. M. C. A. who have been attached to this division and actively carried on iheir work in all its phases during the time that this division was in con tact with the enemy. "While the men of the Y. M. C. A. were with the troops in the front line. Hie young women of the Y. M. C. A. were detailed with the hospitals, and The medical staff of this division bears testimony of their most efficient help during these two weeks of great strain."

With se lection of members of the foreign af fairs, the naval and the postoffice com mittee, the republican committee on committees today completed the organi zation of the principal committees, ex cepting rules and merchant marine of the next house of representatives. The republican personnel of three commit tees selected today follows: Postoffice New members.

The new members are Representatives Ackerman, New Jersey; Begg, Ohio; Browne, Wisconsin: Houghton, New York; Mason, Illinois; Newton. Minne sota; Smith, Illinois; Dickinson, Iowa, and Moores, Indiana, to the committee membership. Holdover republican mem bers include Chairman Porter, Pennsyl vania; Rogers, Massachusetts: Temple. Pennsylvania, and Kennedy, Rhode Island. 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. .ill iihi in' ; III: i I!

General Colqu- rioun. in the course or a statement on the rioting of Canadian soldiers at Kinmel, said that no attack was made on the officers, who were treated with courtesy.. "I myself went in and out among the men freely," he added, "and some of them actually put down loot in order to salute me then they picked up the Joot again. "The -report of the damage to the camp are greatly exaggerated. "Some 50 or 60 men got out of hand and attacked some canteens. The men in one camp. anticipating danger, armed themselves, and, contrary to t-xpresa orders, fired. That was on Wednesday, when the fatalities oc curred. "The girls' camp was not attacked. As a matter of fact, the girls were treated with the utmost chi'alry. No man entered the girls' rooms while they were occupied. "One man raised the red flag in an attempt to introduce bolsheviem. He was shot." however, feeling certain' that the final peace treaty cannot be agreed upon before May. at the earliest.

Foreman, a mail carrier of Allentown, Pa., found that shoes with ordinary soles last about one month. But he says a pair of Neslin-soled shoes gave him more than nine months of service, in which time he walked over 4,000 miles. His experience shows how you may save shoe money by providing your iamuy witn fNeoiin-soied shoes, wrucn give extra wear where other shoes wear out quickest. You can get Neolin-soled shoes in any type of shoe you want. Prices are about the same as for shoes that give only ordinary wear, sometimes they are even less If your dealer hasn't the style you want, he can get it for you quickly. Remember, Neolin Soles are created by science to be what soles should be. They are available everywhere for re-soling as well as on new shoes.
