The campaign In Salem by the
members of the Young; Women's
Christian association to tnlse fund.-,
for tht general war work of the a:
sociation and to build hostess houses
In the j United States und Franco
where women and children may have
the opportunity to visit with the

At the conclusion of the second

Mrs.: II. S. Oile. Mrs. Prince IJyrU.

An Interesting roup of reasons
why) tbe; Y. W. C. A. members .ire
fcble and obligated to undertake a
world war program follows:
1. ! Because the work has to be
done. .--' -
2. 'Because It has been asked by
government the Fosdick commission
and; other official organizations to
undertake the responsibility-.
Because it has had fifty oiix
Preparation to meet- a world crlaH.
4i Because it ia already establish
ed in tweoty-sloc nationa.
5- Because it has had actual ex
perience In all the increased prob
lems of girls duo to war pressure,
such as. employment, housing, health
etc. j ,
6i Because of its interclasg, inter
d nominational, international char
acter, with a membership of 350,000
it is sympathetically preparing wo
