THE RED CROSS AND THE Y. M. C. A.
The Capital Journal is very much interested in the
"war chest" proposal naturally all our citizens are be
cause it concerns all supporters of war activities. It is a
matter that should be thoroughly discussed from every
viewpoint before being adopted or rejected by the
.We are inclined to the view that there are just two
great war activities that should be supported by the
public, first, last and all the time the Red Cross and the
Y. M. C. A. The first of these takes care of the men on
the battle line, the wounded, sick find distressed every
where; the second affords conveniences, entertainment,
encouragement and assistance to the soldiers back of the
lines. Together these great organizations are the mairii
reliance of the soldiers and civilians alike in the war
zone, and the Y. M. C. A. begins its ministrations to tho
soldiers in the training camps of this country.
The Red Cross and the Y. M. C. A. must be supported
to the limit of the country s means if that necessity omep .
The welfare of our fighting men and the morale of the
army depend upon these agencies to a very great extent.
Next to the fighting machine itself these are the. most
important factors in waging a successful war under
There may be other worthy movements launched m con
nection with the war but they are of restricted and special
character and not so essential to the welfare of the army,
neither do they have, so important a bearing on the great
object in viewa victory for the hosts of democracy and
freedom. Let those support such movements who are
able to dd so, but the great mass of the people must be
marshalled back of the Red Cross and the Y. M, C. A.
and given to understand that they are doing the next best
thing possible to manning the trenches when they
furnish the funds that keep these organizations actively
and effectively at work wherever and whenever their
activities are needed.

MAY FORCE HOLLAND TO SUBMERGE
' With German cavalry on the Dutch border, it is quite
probable the ravening Prussian beast will fasten his
fangs in the throat of Holland just as he did in that of
Belgian. He is already declaring the lamb s shadow is
interfering with him although the lamb has pointed out
that the shadow points in the other direction, and is pre
pared to jump on and punish him for having a shadow
anyway. At the same time each country has withdrawn
its ministers and are as far at the outs as they can be
without being openly at war. Holland has tried to play
fair, but the Prussian beast does not want fair play, but a
stacked deck and the deal. In other words- Germany
wants the privilege of sending war munitions and sup
plies through Dutch territory to her troops in Belgium
and also to have a port on the Holland coast if Ostend
and Zeebrugge are out of business. Holland could put up
a hard fight and give Germany a great worrying if she
was willing to make the sacrifice and submerge. It may
be she will do this for apparently the only safe place for
nor at this time is at the bottom of the sea.

The house yesterday afternoon passed the senate reso
lution for registration of all men who have become 21
feince June 6 last. It is claimed this will add 1.200,000
men to the nation's available soldier reserve. Of these
it is estimated 700,000 will prove physically fit for service
in class one. It will go at once to a conference committee,
as some changes were made in the original resolution and
will then be rushed to the president. From these returns
it is seen that boys are reaching their majority almost as
last as soldiers can be sent to France under present trans
portation facilities. - .
