Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 11, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THyRSpAy.JULY 11. .1918 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILV HERALD "7. Never Sold in Its Cantetps Articles S^nt fts Gifts to Soldiers ' - Tlio following gtatement was Issued fcy M?. O, H. Wood, chaliinan of the National Council ot the Y.M.C.A., following a'.conference of Y.M.C.A. lead-era on Friday, May 31: . "In v^erw of recent criticisms and nuosltons from various sources, the National Executive Commlttoo of the Y.M.C.A. �wish to present to the public the loTlowlnf general statements of fact In regard to Its services to the Boldlera, and to give out at the same time a statement recently made by Genorll Currle, which will enable the Ulibllc to Judge ot the value of the Y.M.C.A. work in France. Purpose of Y.M.C.A. Canteens. "The Y.M.C.A. Is In the canteen bus 5nos8 solely as a medium of service to \he soldier, and devotes every dollar of net profft made to that service. There\l� npt, nor ever has' been, a dollar made in Its military canteen whlch^has been used in any other way than In its service to the soldiers. The total cost of malntalnlhe Ita service greatly exceeds the amount of net profits from Ite canteens, and tlie balance Is met from the eubscrlption funds ralied ip Caiiada. "During the year 191' the total cost of maintaining the Y.M.C.A. service to the Canadian soldiers In England and France, including very largo Items lor free drinks, cinemas and concerts, athletic supplies. >vriting materials, libraries, etc., was two and a halt times as nluch as the net profits from Its canteens. Ir. other words, for every dollar of not profit made In its cantooris 'tho'Y:M.C.A. has had_ to secure by subscriptions another dollar end a half to meet thfe reciulrcments of � .Its entire .service overseas. � � � "Tlio prices charged in the can-teena are governed by the military iiuthorltlee, and tlie Y.M.C.A. is not allowed to \indorseIl the Expeditionary Force canteens In France.  Financial Statements. "In France the books ot the Y..M.C.A.are checked montlily.Mn so far as all canteen operations are concerned, by the army field cashiers. These, as well as the accounts la England, are audited regularly by a chartered accountant, and these audited stiitements, pow issued every six months, are. sent to all the officers commanding � and arq posted in the i'.M.C.A, huts for tho information of tho soldiers.' In addition to this, a combined English and French audited ttatement is issued every six months. "A complete audited statement, including overHeas operations for 1917, 1 which win be published in Canada, has been delayed by the recent military operations, which have prevented tho auditor'getting the necessory permission to cross to France. ' "ne is In abetter position than Lleut.-Oen. Sir Arthur Currle to speak as to whether tho Y.M.C.A. is a genuine benefaction and flervico to the Canadian army. The following is a statement made by him to a gathering of Canadian Y.M.C.A, officers in France, at which tho general Secretary for Canada was present, on March 11th, 1018, Oeneral Currie has authorized this statement for publication: " 'I came here thls^ njornlng to see you at your work, and did not oxpect to be Invited to speak. But now that I have'this opportunity, I wish to bring to you the sincere thanks ot all In the Canadian Corps for that work. " 'One of the most important factors in winning a fight Is the morale of tho troops, and it is in helping to raise and maintain the morale at a, high level that you have done so rauchi Canadians have tho well-merited reputation of 'being good soldiers, and that is because their luoralo is good] This is only posolble because they aYf? well looked after, and that la where tho Y.M.C.A. steps In and renders invaluable assistance In providing them with happiness and comfort. The men forget tho sights ot war, and aeem to get a fresh start through your programs, your concerts, your sports and your canteens. Your literature, music and concerts afford them the greatest possihle pleasure and relaxation, your sports keep them happy and fit, and your canteens provide them with things they cannot get eluewhere at such reasonable rates. Great Help In Beatina Huns. " 'You are a wondorful help to us in beating the boche. It is not necessary tor me to say this. It is apparent to all III the corps. But this year we are going to need yotir help more than ever. Heretofore, the Canadians have always been pushing forward and winning, and that is, a great stimulus to men. This year -we may be on the defensive, and that will require a maximum of moral courage and strength, if we lot the morale sag, our efficiency will topple over. "'I believe the_authorities should recognize the extremely valuable factor the Y.M.C.A. is in winning battles, and I think you ought to have the proper personnel ^nd equipment nec essary to carry on your work. It there be anything that I can do to Impress your needs on the authorities, I will be only too glad to do It. " 'In conclusion I can only repeat what I said a few minutes ago-that the need of the work and the Influence of the Y.M.C.A. is greater now than ever (before, nnd, if such a thing be possible,' you must all work even harder than in the past, though I do not see how, with the men and mater ial you have, you can do more than you are doing. But if you can, do so. We need ft and we appreciate it.'" It is evident that the churches are being drawn closer together through the work of the Y.Jirc.A., and recently Canadian papers published the following Items, showing that the Roman Catholic Church la sympathetic towards this movement. "Archhishop's Palace, "Quebec, May 2, 1918. "Dear Mr. Ramsay: Herewith I am sending you my sentiments regarding the organization ot the Y.M.C.A. for Canadian soldiers. "It Is excellent in its intentions and its resultts.. Our Catholic soldiers have already greatly laeneflted by it. Praise must be given to the generosity of the oitlzens who have made great sacri flees in order to maintain and develop it. Tho movement Is very generous and very broad of Inspiration. "Catholics who wish to help it by donations therefore participate in a useful work of hish patriotic and social value. "Yours very truly, "(Signed) P. E. ROY. "Auxiliary Bishop of Quebec." Kingston, May ,15.-In forwarding a cheque for $600 to the Red Triangle Fund, Cornelius Bingham, one ot Kingston's leading Roman Catholics and one of its wealthieati cltlzena, said that heretofore his contributions to the Y.M.C.A. had teen negligible because he understood it was a aec-tarian organization, buflie added tliat he had it from excellent authority that Y.M.C.A. work at the front had been anythlngsbut sectarian. Its charities and' good works, ho said, bad been Catholic in the hroadest sense ot the term, and merited recognition and support from all. Big Advance In Albania Waehlngton, July 11.-An official dispatch from Rome today, re-in^te unchecked advance of Italian troops in Albania with Barat as an objective.

Pending the. r,ecelpt ot fuller returns from the circular ballot sent out by the labor committee on Friday, no joint conferencce were held this morning between the board and the men. Both sides werb watchfully waiting. Large numbers ot replies have been received in response to the circular ballot, some of them from points as far west as Albert^v and Saskatchewan and the vei'diot Is said by memhers ot the committee to he overwhelmingly against � compromise or further delay. The ballot was couched In such terms that -the unions bad hut to pronounce on two questions, whether tho committee would recede from ita original demands, or whether prolonged negotiations .should be carried on. As an Instance of the attitude in one case tit least, a western union voted 90 to 2 against weakening. Conferences of the railway board and the committee ot the Federated Trades had been arranged for 11 o'clock this morning, but It was called off.' It was understood today that the committee waa waiting to get returns to the ballot from a number ot the larger railway shops, more eepe daily the Angus shops in Montreal, and the Winnipeg shops before presenting their ultimatum to the board, "The situation is critical indeed, said a delegate today. 'In tact the overwhelming sentiment expressed by the membership leaves the committee no room for backing down at this stage." It ia understood that no further offers wlil be made by the ivar board, tho members of which believe they have gone as far aa they can. They have offered all that the employes on the United States railways will get and to give more would place them at a tromendous disadvantage in oompet ing writh the rival American lines.
