A most remarkable showing is made
by the religious work department, u
very positive refutation of the claim
on the pnrt of some people that the j
soldiers dodge religious services. Dur-

Criticism of Y. M. C. A.—Proved
j The wtir work of men in the tml-
| form of the Rod Triangle who follow-
1 ed the flng wherever it went proved
i their heroism nnd devotion on the hnt-
. tie front and were always present to
! nerve and comfort the American light-
ing tnen, says Josephus Daniels, secre-
tary of the navy, will remain an en-
during monument to the Y. M. C. A.
"It is unthinkable," lie declared In a
letter to the "Y" wnr work council,
I "Unit criticism of minor defects here
i and there should be allowed to cloud
I for a moment the splendid record made
| by this great association."
Ills letter, recently made public by
j tlie Y. M. 0. A., follows in part:
I "Only those who were brought In
intimate contact with It, and could sur-
vey the whole field, are able to appre-
ciate fully the great extent and value
■if tin- Y. M. C. A.'s work for onr sol-
diers and sailors In camps and train-
ing stations, at home and abr. ad, at
the fighting front, on transports nnd ft
niiTal bases, it cheered and aided our
| fifhliiif forces. JU balls ami hut*
lowed the flag wherever it went, and
• wore there to servo nnd comfort our
; brave boyn. They proved their hero-
ism and devotion on the battle front,
| a number being commended for brav-
«Ty, nnd several sacrificing their lives
iu the line at duty.
"It is unthinkable that critlpism of
minor defects here and there should be
allowed to cloud for n moment the
splendid record made by this great
, fectlons, and no organization engaged'
in such a stupendous work, employing j
bo many men over n vast area, could i
•xpoet to carry it through without!
making some mistakes. I5ut so far
iu« I have been able to determine, these I
have been few and hurdly enough to
be considered in comparison with tlie
magnificent wervice rendered.
