WHAT THE Y. M. C. A. DID.
From Saturday's Pally. "
Twenty-two combat divisions in
the front line areas from Verdun- to
the Meuse-Arponne were served free
with Y. M. C. A. supplies of an esti
mated value of more than 3.000.000
francs or approximately $545,454.00
during the major offensive in Sep
tember and November, according to
Ernest Townsend Iiarrett, 310 West
121st St., New York, a merchandise
broker, who has returned "from
France after more than a year s
work as a Y. M. C. A. divisional
financial and business secretary,
with headquarters at Ippecourt.
These supplies went to the men in
the front line trenches from the
rail-head at Ippecourt and covered
the fighting stretches from Verdun
to the Meuse-Argonne," said Mr.
"There were days at Ippecourt
that the 'Y' unloaded as many as
forty cars of supplies for the sold
iers, and these supplies were moved
up to the front, the military giving
us every co-operation in our sector.
"The Y. M. C. A. supplied be
tween, 650,000 .and 700,000 men.

weeks from September 1 to Novem

home from men In the A. E. P..
$600,000 worth of supplies were giv

of fighting the 'Y made up and
served 18.000 pounds of chocolate."
Mr. Barrett served with the 37th
division during. June, July and Aug
ust and then was transferred to the
o3rd division during the fighting
from Verdun to the Meuse-Argonne.
Later he was with the Fourth di
vision, the first army of occupation
in Germany, and during his stay
j there the 'Y' furnished supplies to
American soldiers valued at $122,-
In July, Mr, Barrett said, 'Y' sup
plies with an aggregate value of
home through the Y' for the men
amounted to about $40,000 a month
during July and August.

In November and December, Mr.
Barrett was in England salvaging

said, was taken over by the British,

explained, were taken to the Y. M.
