Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Daily Herald VOL. II. LETHBRIDGC, ALBERTA, MONDAY, JUNE 21, IOQ9. NO. III. POINTS OUT NEED OF A Y.M.CA. The Rev. A.M. Gordon Takes Up An Import- ant Question WILL PARALLEL C.N.R. Vancouver. Ji. 0., June Hon. I'. Graham, minis- ter of railways, approves of tin- route map of tin- proposed branch lino of tin- G T. P. railway to Vancouver, filed in Ottawa last month. The line will virtually paral- li 1 ilie projected line of the X. li. all tlu; way irtim Yelluwhead Pass. .It is un- that the C. N. ft. has already begun a vigorous protest against the invasion If. '.'f its territory by its formid- able rival. On Sunday evening at Knox church the pastor, Rev. A. M. Gordon, preached a sermon to young men on the subject of strength, especially strength of character. Tl-e hole trend of his remarks was a strong- plea for a Young Men's Christian Association for Lethbridge. Some of his principal arguments were s lol- lows -an young men expect to lind. blreugtli, of mind, of body and of spirit. Thu motto of the Y. M. C. A. is a. sound mind in a sound Ixxly. "If most of us want to be of any use in the world we to take care of our health. 'J he chief, benefit ol sport is obtained when we our- selves take part in the exercise. Some di-v a reserve of physical strength.'will stand us in good stead. A good deal can be said in favor of military drill. Kxtremes are not de- sirable- Both body and brain should be developed. The man who has brains and a sound body and uses them, is sure to rise. The develop- ment of the spirit is also necessary. The more body and mind are develop- ed the more the' character and spirit need to be developed too. The Bible is more than a library. It is a great literature. But tho chief value of the Bible is that it tenches man how' to overcome the temptations of the evil one. The great object of the Christ- ian church is to minister to tbv spiritual needs. Institutional have attempted to solve the problem. the Y. M. .C'. A. is doing a good work. There' is no rivalry be- tween the church and the Y. M. C. A. Tlie Y. M. C. A. supports the church work by helping to develop the character of the young men. The two are. not rivals but partners. Many patronize the Y. M.. C. A. wko will not patronize the church. It is important that on Sunday and week days the influences should -be Christ- ia.n. "Like the 'hospital, this organiza- tion appeals to all. no matter to what church they belong. All the churches support it because all re- ceive a benefit from it. "The Y. M, C. A. does not aim to produce stars in the athletic wsrld, but to help aaid guide members to exercise -and develop strong bodies. Its gymnasium classes and swimming- baths are appreciated by young men. "Is the time ripe for a Y.M.C.A. in Lethbridge The city is g'oing ahead by leaps and bounds. We should look forward to having one- soon. "Would that a Y.M.C.A. and a Public Library could be combined. Our new church building -has been arid financial resources, but Knox church will not suffer by advocating a Y.M. C.A. Both give value for the money. A. Y. M. C. A. will help the church. "Usually one or two men head the list with good subscriptions --and railway corporations (though often- called are finding o-it the value of .a M, C. A. and are giv- ing large bonuses. But still we must look "-largely to the young men who derive the benefit of the institu- "lioV The benefit is chiefly io 'the young man who has no homo. Tho Y. M. C. A. is a home for such. "There will 'bo difficulties to over- come. But there are funds available for other purposes- Over a quarter of a million dollars is spent over the bars here in one year. Money is found for civic improvements, money is found for boulevards and cement sidewalks. Money can surely be found to do something for the welfare of the men themselves.
