THE SEED FOR $250,000,000
The first Y. M. C. A. drive was tor
3H million dollars, the second for
35 million dollars, the third began
tor 170 million dollars, and now
comes the urgent request to increase
this amount to 250 million dollars.
We can hardly keep back the ques
tion, "Why is so much needed?"
Without in any way seeming to min
imize the work ot the other welfare
organisations, each as important in
its field, let us give a glance at the
scope ot the Y. M-. C. A. work and
the extent ot the territory It covers.
The British government and na
tion take care of the Y. SI. C. A. for
the Tommies, but aside from that
the United States provides the huts
for all the rest of the allies. This
means that not only in all the camps
and cantonments In the United States
but in France, in Italy, in Russia,
and along the Serbian front the Y.
SI. C. A. carries its message ot home
and good cheer. To do this it must
have ready at a moment's call all
the necessary materials for a hut
and its equipment The Y. SI. C. A.
wherever possible provides its own
transportation facilities, and has in
use thousands of trucks and auto
mobiles. No matter where the Am
erlcan soldier has gone, those at
home have been gladdened by the
Bight of the now familiar red tri
angle on the stationery, and the com
fort that this one thing has brought
to the hearts of American mothers
can not be measured. The Y. SI. C.
A. provides entertainments on an
enormous scale. It has placed record
orders for all kinds of athletic ap
paratus which is used free of charge
by the soldiers back of the lines. It
is carrying on an educational cam
paign that will increase enormously
aa soon as the war is over. It has a
very extensive canteen service, and
supplies the food and sweets at no
profit to the organization. When a
business has only expense and no In
come, and when It Is planned on
ench a hnse scale an the nrmv V
M. C. A., there must necessarily be
an immense outlay to. keep it run
ning. There need be no fear ot
waste of funds, as the business men
fit the head of the organization are
men who know how to handle big
business. The Y. M. C. A. secretaries
jet only enough salary to pay their
expenses while abroad and the fam
ilies dependent upon them receive an
allowance which will enable them to
meet the family expenses. Money
Is made to go Just as far aa it can
be stretched, and It is all spent for

the good of the "boys over there."
The war has come to an end, but
the need ot the army Y. M. C. A.
will not end until the last Yank has
come back home acros; the big
pond. There is need ot every cent
that Is being solicited and we in Jo
sephine county can not fall down on
any call at this stage of the game.
Large gifts are absolutely neces
sary, and the Vnited States Steel
corporation has just made a record
gift ot $5,000,000 to the combined
agencies. Grants Pass district, which
comprises school district No. 7, Is
asked to raise $6,000. We did bet
ter than that on the first Red Cross
drive, and we can do Just as well
now as then. There will be no great
er satisfaction in the years to come
that any ot ns can have, than to
know that we also helped.
America Is making a glorious re
cord with its army, and everywhere
the flower of our young manhood has
spread the principles which have
made It known as "the cleanest
army In the world." Keep It so by
keeping the hut tirea burning.

PLANNED AFTER THE WAR
Iondon, Oct. 10. (Correspon
dence of the Associated Press)
'Amorlca will become within reach
ot England In a day and a halt and
the time will come when an Eng
lishman In New York will see bis
London paper the morning atter Its
publication," said liandloy Page tho
airplane constructor, recently.
He prophesled that Immediately
on the declaration ot poare it would
be possible to begin an air service
between Marseilles and Ixmdon with
a single stop at Parts for an overhaul
and taking in gasoline. Mr. Page
"Constantinople could be reacned
In 20 hours, Rome In 11 hours.
and Marseilles In eight," he said.
"An 800 mile service could bo
run at a profit, both for malls and
passengers, at a rate but tlltlo In
excess ot that at present In force.
"I base my calculations on the
use ot a medlum-sUed machine mak
ing non-stop flights of 400 miles.
Each would csrry 4,400 pounds of
revenue-earning load. There would
be first-class aerodromes at each end
of the route, and another In the mid
dle. Second-class aerodromes would
be provided every 100 miles."
