' Not only Is the ensign of tho Canadian " Y" scattered throughout the camps in England nnd France, but it Is attached to dozens of dugouts in tho forward trenches, where Its secretaries, continuously under shell fire, serve hot coffee, tea, chocolate, etc., to the tired, and often chilled, Canadian soldiers. When the boys from the Land of the Maple Leaf were driving the enemy from VImy Ridge men of the Canadian Y " wero right upon their heels catering to their necessities as they fought. "Almost before tho place was consolidated;" wrote Brigadier-General Odium to Captain Wallace, the senior officer of tho Canadian "Y," after the affair was over, " your representative had a distribution, centre at tho crest ot Vimy Ridge and was serving biscuits and chocolate to the men." On another occasion, when, during a German drive, the military authorities were \unable to reach the. men in-the front trenches, the lives of many Canadian boys were saved by tho rations which were served gratis from a near-at-hand " Y " dugout being carried on by the "Y" men ot Canada stationed at the camps In England and France Is as varied as It is,extensive. A part of the educational- work provides an opportunity for .university students to continue their course of study. Religious servtces of a broad and help ful character are'held dally. At least once or twice a week entertainments' are held In auditoriums, capable of holding a thousand or more men, the entertainers being men and women of the highest reputation. Tho physical wollbelng Is also well looked after, all manner- of athletic sports being regularly provided. A thousand dollars a month is.spent by the Canadian "Y" on concerts in England alone, whllo equipment .furnished and supplies, purchased in,February for the free.use of our soldiers In England and France entailed an expenditure of $57,000. Tho effect which the efforts of tho Canadian' Y.M.C.A. Is having upon the moral, -physical and intellectual welfare of the soldiers of Canada, both at home and abroad,- la most encouraging. �.To' the parents who' have sons among them tl-e results should bo gratifying. The - writer has In his possession a letter from a^man who Is In charge of one of the "Y" hutu at Wltley Camp, lit which he saya. that out of a tralnload of eight hundred men who were sent to a nearby town to spend Christmas Day, only "one. was under the influence of liquor when the return Journey was finished at eleven o'clock that night. One could scarcely have obtained better results had It been a tralnload of eight hundred staid preachers Instead of that number of rollicking young soldiers. - MR.
