the last one of them has been returned
to th United' States. :
: Bhe Is ;-Princess Galilohi, sreat

1M. C. A. EXECUTIVE
Df John P. Mott Is Made Chev
alier of Legion of Honor Ex
!; tensive Work of "Y" Among
"While eertain branches of the wort
the . National War ' Work Council qi
the Y. M. C. A. has been doing for scat
time are being curtailed, one type ol
service is being called upon for more
co-operation than ever before. Al
though for some time there have been
approximately 400 to 500 entertainers
in France, many difficulties have sur
rounded this type of service and thr
thousands of shows which have been
given in France have only been put
over in spite of almost superhuman
difficulties. Now, however, with the
period of demobilization forcing upon
the Army new problems has a Teal
spirit of co-operation been shown by
the Army authorities. Therefore, Gen
eral Pershing has detailed Colonel
Kelly, from his own Staff, to act as
entertainment officer for the A. E.'F
which position places him as the liai
son officer between the Army and the
"Y" Entertainment Bureau In Paris.
Theatres and large buildings are be
ing taken over, mechanics supplied by'
the Army are putting thenvinto opera-
ticn and the "Y" is producing shows,'
given by soldier talent alone, and also
dramatic and vaudeville performances
and miscellaneous musical programs,
the personnel of all of which must'be
recruited from this country.
. Owing to the large number of men
in the Army with entertainment abih
ity, no, effort Is being made to send
men from this side. Women, however,
are wanted for these positions in large
numbers. 125 must be sent out from
this country every month, which will
require the co-operation :of every re
cruiting agency throughout the coun
try. All entertainers are supplied with
uniforms, Life, Accident and Health
Insurance, transportation, and allow'
$150.00 per month for living expenses
in France. .'
The women should be preferably be
'tween 'the ages of 23 and 30, neat and
attractive .and possessed of-a pro
nounced ability in their particular line.
The . field for entertainment now
reaches from - the coast towns " in
France right up and into Germany) for
while the "Y" cannot do much with
the Army of Occupation in the way of
Canteen, it can supply entertainment
and is doing so on an increasingly
large scale. Information may be ob
tained from W. C. King, Peters Build

Paris. Where Napoleon lit tnd
King Edward VII of England spent
many leisure hours the American en
listed men are now at play. The fan
pus yacht club at Cannes, founded and
patronized by King "Edward, and St;
Sauveur, where the third Napoleon was
wont to go 'with his court, indicate the
variety of attractions offered by the Y,
M. C. A. in the leave area system oper
ated In co-operation with the military
authorities. From the Alps to the Pyr-
i onnes and from the Brittany toast to
the Riviera, there are seven "Y" leave
areas in which 50,000 soldiers can be
entertained at one time. Preparations
are now under way to increase these
much-appreciated facilities- to double
their present; capacity.
Representatives of the army and of
the Y. M. C. A. are now traveling from
nne end of France to the other seel
ing new spots in which to set up leave
areas. The experiment at Aix-les-Bains
has been successful from the start,
as America now knows pretty wet
from first-hand information ; carried
home by Mrs. Theodore Rloosevelt, Jr.,
who organized the woman's canteen
work at AIx. v -V
"Aches and Pains" was an Ideal spot
for the experiment, but six others have
oeen found and put ill operation, each
equally satisfactory as the original
racdel. Consequently it is with opti
mism "that the army and the "Y'seet
to increase the centres where sure
cures - have beeji found for homesick
doughboys. ; ; '
Location, climate, hotel accommoda
tions, opportunities for entertainment
and sight-seeing and the moral and 4
physical cleanliness of the - area are
all-important in the selection of f: a
leave resort. As soon as a site ' is
selected the largest available' is ob
tained by the Y. M. C. A; as -Its main
center of operations," men and women
are assigned to service and neg6ti
atiqns are begun to secure reduced
prices .from ; such entertainment en
terprises as cannot be duplicated by
the Y. M. C. A. and every effort is
ktade to give as much service as pos
sible. The army provides transport
tation and pays the hotel bills, thereby
enabling the soldier to enjoy all the
attractions formerly restricted to
kings and emperors and malefactors
of great wealth. - r - s
The Jetty Casino at Nice and the
Municipal Casino, at Cannes - are the
centres of attraction in the Rfviera
for the 8,500 men who can be accom
modated in this area. Many officers
favor this Mediterranean section and
there Is a "Y" club for them: -'"...Brery-thing
except the gambling that was
stopped by the government at the be
ginning of the war is at the disposal
