Travelers In Auto Unknowingly Se

to Pass the Might
They lived In Milwaukee and "fllv

with tliclr two children. They left
home early In the morning, arriving
at Gary Just before dark. Anxious
to reach their destination as noon as
possible, they left Gary after getting
a supply of gasoline.
A few miles out of Gary a heavy
rnlnstorm checked their progress and
throuded the countryside In pitch
darkness. Losing their way they de
cided to turn In at tho first gate and
spend the rest of tho night in the
automobile, rather than take chances
of traveling by night In the darkness
on unknown roads.
A fdvv miles further on the outline
of a ireo Just beyond an open gate was
seen, and tho auto was guided beneath.
Tho couple and children slept In
crarapeV quarters In the unto and

Imagine their horror when they ills

ADDED TO ROLL OF HONOR
A man and his wife went to one of
the most beautiful Islands In the
Carlbhenn sea seven years ago to spend
tho twilight of their lives In tho se
rene beauty of tho tropics. It was a
place which the husband, a seafaring
man, bad chosen as the nearest ap
proach to terrestrial paradise for those
who have enough money to live with
out working bard.
The couple landed tit New York the
other day with their Inres and penates
and a parrot. Tho Ideal season Is Just
about to begin In tho Caribbean, but
It will start and. continue without this
particular pair of humans. "We want
an old-fashioned Now England win
ter," said the wife. The husband was
more specific. "It was great for a
while, but finally, It got too dodblasted
beautiful.' Wo are going back to Con
necticut to see some rocks and barren
flolds." New York Sun.
Soldiers Reported 'MVHssing In Action"

are still between 250 and 300 members
of the American front line army still
In speaking of this war mystery of
missing men tho ox-soldier's magazine
says: "Soldiers who go Into battle are
like men who go down to tho sea In
ships. There are those who return and
those who do not, those wlio live and
tlioie who die. And then there are
those who dwell for years In a twilight
zone of uncertainty, neither life nor
death, from which no word ever comes
back to the shores called home.
"A few weeks ago the newspapers
of the country announced that there
were no more members of the A. K. F.
'missing In nctlon. The only reason
they are not missing In action Is that
they have been 'presumed dead.'
"There are still between 20 and 300
members of tho American front line
army unaccounted for, who, carried on
the rolls for mouths and months as
missing In action, seem to have dls-,

leaving neither the ripple of a rumor
behind them, the testimony of an eye,

to their relatives or friends, the war
department has ordered that from
henceforth they be carried as' 'pre

brief explains why the American army
as It stands demobilized today techni
cally has no 'missing In action.' "

If this Is your Idea of the field and
work of the modem program of the
Young Men's Chrlstinn Association yon
do not understand tho varied and
ndnptablo program of the State Asso
ciation of tho Young Men's Chrlstlun
Associations of Nebraska.
Absolutely Independent of n build
ing, it Is prepared to help boys and
young men In tho following effective
1. Through the II1-Y Clubs. W
now have thlrty-soven In Nebraska,
with a total mcmborshlp of twenty-six
hundred. Their purpose Is to create,
maintain and extend high standards of
Christian character throughout the
school and community. Our policy
for the next two years calls for the
doubling or trebling of this number.
2. The County Y. M. C. A. plan
operates through n County Commltteo
nnd nn employed County Secretary.
We have sir counties organized In Ne
braska, embrnclng thirty-one Blblo
Study Groups and n totst membership
of one thousand. In all Its activities
tho County work operates through the
home, the church and the school. Our
policy calls for the organization of at
least twenty-five additional Counties
during 1020 nnd 1021.
S. The State Association conducts
various older boys' Conferences, which
challenge Uic boys to high Ideals of
living appealing for cloan thoughts,
clean sport, clean speech. A strong
body actuated by a real purpose In
life. Last year there was a total at

School boys with decisions In forward
steps and now purposes totaling live
4. Camp Sheldon hnd a vital con
tact with about three hundred boys
last summer, and ,wlll Ibis year have
a greatly enlarged attendance. Camp
Sheldon operates from June to Octo
her and serves the purpose of a train
ing camp for the development of local
leaders In your community. Its sole
purpose Is to build character.
5. There Is a student Y. M. C. A
In every college, university and aca
demy In Nebraska. Tho purposo of
the Student work Is to foster and dc
velop the Christian character of stu
dents already so Inclined and to lead'
others where possible Into tho Chris
tlnn life. It tends to follow up and
make permanent tho Influence begun
In the home nnd the high school, and
to steady the lives of tho young men
at n time when the stress nnd strain
of temptation Is often severe. It en
deavors to supplement the constructive
Christian Influence of the home nnd
(1. Through our State and District
Secretaries, meetings for boys and
young men are conducted with
for a clean, purposeful life.
7. The Association movement has
developed the Idea of the Father and
Son meetings and as nn Inter-denomln-ntlonal
agency has encournged and
promoted them through churches nnd
other organization until they aro today
becoming one of the most popular and
vital factors In moulding tho lives of
our sons. Any city, community or
church enn profit by this type of work
In behalf of .their boys.

whereby young men leaving home aro
followed and right contacts nnd ac
quaintances formed In their new loca
tions, endeavoring to tie him up to Wt
Church and Association in the city of

All the above Is dono without nny
special buildings or equipment, except
at our State Hoys' Camp and at relu

Heretofore we have bought medlcnl
service at retail. Now Glasgow Is try
ing out a plan to sell medical service
What Glasgow Is striving to do is
this: Divide the city in districts and
provide free dispensaries and free doc
tors to all who need medical attention.
It is claimed that such a scheme will
reduce the death rate, because many
poor people now skimp their families
In tho matter of health precautions.
And the doctors like It, also. They
work fewer hours uiid u stundnrd pay
Withal, the Glasgow plan of whole
sale doctoring Is said to be cheaper
than our old-fashioned retail method,
"GIrard" writes In the Philadelphia,
American cities have made half a
step toward such doctoring of the peo
ple In wholesale lots.
