(Continued on page 51 I FOUND A NEEDLE WHAT THE Y.M.C.A. DOES Ono very important difference between tho Young Men's Chris- tian Association and most other organized enterprises for helping to make men better and worth to themselves and 10 you. is this: "J" It's an association tor men and they're all self respecting men, not derelicts; they help themselves: it :sn't a "dead lift." They want the help they get enough to pay vor tt; ii tnoy paid all it costs, we wouldn't need ;o ask you tor a contribution, except to enlarge and increase the usefulness of the work. One other thing is important to keep in mind; there's a moral side to the work which makes its more secular features all the more noi only to the men who get the good directly, but to you who goi it. indirectiy. "r The gymnasium, the educational classes of all kinds for busi- ness and culture: The multitude of thinngs for which this Associa- tion stands, are all strengthened and make more useful to everybody concerned by a strong moral tor.o and from which the whole enterprise springs and upon which if is founded.
