But in acldltlon to them tho method of German attack, advancing troops in' waves faster tlian machine guns could mow them down, must, military c\perls say. have entailed enormous losKcs.

UST an ordinary cup of coffee! Surely ijothing could be more commonplace to you. But- �m M m To wounded, broken and exhausted Cianadiinm^r\staggering out of a furnace of shells, at Mtny Ridge, ^^a^^ nervesj:orn to pieces, that little refreshment in the rrioment of crisis-wno can measure its significance? For it may rhea:n life itself 1 YA\ C.A RedT $2,250,0 ^ panada Here is an officer's picture of the need: " I wish you and the people supplying free hot drinks could see the men coming in after a> big action. They would look like grotesque scarecrows if you couldn't see the pathos of it. Thieir shoulders and heaids sag forward and they slouch slowly along with never a glance to left or right. The strangest thing about them is their faces. If the tension i not broken the brain may snap. I certainly believe that in thousands of cases it was that first hot coffee that dragged the man back to life and ^ sanity." Is there a man, vvoman or boy in all Canada to whom these heroes would appeal in vain ? Will you help the Y.M.G.A. supply the coffee and the thousand and one other, needs of body, mind and spirit "over there?" Can proud Canadians send a more heartening, more practical message to Canadian; heroes now amid the perils of the greatest battle in history than thisthat the iCanadian people responded to the Call of the Y.M.C.A. with magnificent, abundant wholehearted Generosity!"
