Society, In Its dovelopmoiK, had pro
duced u need for some urgiuiiiitloii
that could teaoli joung men with In
lliieneos which would lnsplio them to
live with higher Ideals. There was In
those days, as there Is now, ii large
elaos of men ami boys, in . were
riiifting- with little or no purpose In
life. .Some of these possessed a great
amount of onogy which must expend
It-elf in doing wrong1 If it was not
utilled fur doing- good. Some vveto
seeking aniuseineniti, and when they
could Hud none elevating, thevv would
look for it in inuto questionable prac
tices. And through other natural mi
sons Chi 1st inn influences weie not
leaving their stump on the ehm-.ioters
of these poling men who form such an
Import ii chins in human society.
I't was this vor.v deflnitw need that
called Into existence tlie Voung- Men's
Uirihtiiiu association. Juit like every
other great movement. It did not ap
pear in the developed .orm. It has
taken fifty .veins to evolve the organ
ization, which we know torin.v as- the
Voung Men's Phrlslinn association.
ISIS a I.omlon clerk, (ieorgo Williams,
began to gather around him a band
of .voung men for prsi.ver and confer
ence. Later the proprietors of the
store in which he worked, g-.ive them
a reading room over the store. They
si.on learned to enjoy the ..mo spent
there better tihtin in some more ques
tionable plc.iMiic icsort. And yi"t tho
dry goods clerk was all unconscious
of the futiiie vvot.d wide movement
lie was beginning.
The meeting-. lieio led to similar
ones elsewhoie. Soon rooms were
found necessary vVhich con be kept
open as places for men to g-nthcr wiien
not nt work. These leqiiiicd some
one to give his time to their oversight
and the general secretary was. em
ployed. Keuding rooms weie added
anil later social giimcs. The utli.etie
spirit of .voung tneii soon made a de
mand for a gymnasium and the phys
ical depart inont icsulted, with an em
plo.veri ollicer, the physical director.
Hv this time the oit.v aN-ociation had
nssiuneri a dellnite form, and1 the
movement had spreao throng-out
Hngland and lmri its beginuiuigs in
morion. It, ovtonslons hns pIikv

needs which had culled i. into exist

I.tit now a new futuie enters which
is to have a imirke efl'eei on its fu

social oignnialion ilm't was reai h
ing those men it appealed to the
Voung Men's Christian association to
attempt to meet their needs. ,A now
department wji- opened. Skillful men
weie placed in the railroad liehl to de

Women's Christian association, the
ItritMi Christian college union and the
various other organiations which go
to make up the studeiiitfi Ohristiian fed

of all lands.
The next stop in the extension of
the scope of tho V. M. ('. vvork was
occaioned by our lcccint wur Avith
Spain. During Hie oivll wfir the iiewl
of some strong Christian orgaiiiatinn
wns felt in the army. Hut when the
demand became so urgent last spring
the international committee org-aiuVed
a new department la its alivndy wide

nrmy and navv Chris . i.nmnisslon.
Tents were sent to all the ' ne e.unpi

the ann and niiv oflloors heartily
endorsed the movement. Some of our
host evangelists engngcriri In the new
work. Over I no competent , M. C. A.
hoci claries weie cinplo.ved. The tents
were furnished with tables Where the
soldiers might wilte. The single Item

soon vvciui above $1,000 per wvok. L'n
tier the wise dliectlon of the sect eta
rles the V. M. ('. A. tout soon became
one of tho most popular things about
the cuui-p. it was here that men
came to write home, to hnve unlet
talks, to rest nnd to lit tend Christian
on loos. In times of imti.e 11111117,
wounded men have been eaied for at
the association ontt. At Santiag-o the
tout was pitched awa.v out on the tir

adopted Itself as easily and iiatuiull.v
