The accompanying photograph shows
a group of enemy prisoners learning
to make shoes in a Siberian prisoner-
of-war camp through the efforts of thef
Y.1M. C. A. At present there are 6,000,000
men in prison camps stretching from
England across France and through
Germany to Russia up into Siberia.
Before the entrance of the United
States into this war, the prisoners of
the allies as well as the central pow-
ers were well taken care of. With the;

increase in the numbers of prisoners,
and with our entrance into the war, the
conditions of, the Y. M. C. A. are be-
coming more doubtful. The sum of
$50,000,000 must be raised in order that
the Christian organization may con-
tinue its work' at the prison camps,
and at t e war front. The students of
the cou try have been asked to pledge
themselves to raise this amount. This
week the colleges of Michigan will en-
deavor to raise their share of the fund.

AMERICAN AMBULANCES KEEP
UP WITH DRIVE IN ALBANIA
Paris, Nov. 14.-American 'Ambu-
lance men played an important part
in the recent heavy fighting on the Al-
banian front. The light sars of the
Americais forged ahead over almost
i'mpassable roads, keeping up with
the victorious French armies and at
one stage in the attack passing all
units except the cavalry. Heavier ma-
chines found it impossible to negotiate
the roads until after they had been re-
paired.
The French advanced more than 30
miles in three days, a distance which
they had planned to cover only after
much resistance. Most of the heavy
fighting occurred the first day, when
French artillery cleared out nearly
all of the enemy positions. At one
point in the attack the French were
forced to build a small pontoon
bridge under the heavy fire of the
Austrian guns. This completed, the
Algerian troops stormed ahead and
could hardly be stopped, many of them
went two and three days without food
as it was impossible for the supply
trains to keep up with the advance.
Casualities 'were light and there were
few wounded soldiers for the ambu-
lance men to transport to the rear.
Many Austrian prisoners taken by
the French surrendered without the
slightest resistance. When interview-
ed by their captors, they were invar-
iably strong in their condemnation of
the Germans, whom they blame for
prolonging the war. They reportedy
that their rations had been restricted
to meat, bread, and water, and wel-
comed the food, including vegetables
and wine, which the French provided
them.

Washington, Nov. 14.-Three hun-
dred thousand tons of Dutch shipping
may be turned over to American in-
terests for carrying cargoes between
South American and European ports
and the United States.
At present there are many ships in
American harbors which have been
prevented from sailing for Holland
because of the embargo on foodstuffs
billed to neutrals, who may assist the!
enemy. These vessels are all loaded'
and 'have been awaiting permission
to clear for some time. Conditions have
forced the owners to let the cargoes
rot in the holds as a result of the
government's act to prevent shipment
to Holland.
Negotiations Opened
The war trade board has insisted
that any ships released by the govern-
ment, be chartered to American inter-
ests and be held subject to the war
charter rates. As a result, negotia-
tions., it is understood, have been be-
gun between the board and the Dutch
government to turn over the ships
at least partially, to the trade of the
allies. The plan to be followed may
provide that one-third of the tonnage
be put in coastwise trade, one-third
in trans-Atlantic trade with the al-
lies, and one-third in trade between
Holland and United States. If this
plan is followed, supplies will not be
sent to Holland until shipment from
there of foods for Germany will cause
famine in the Netherlands.
Recently the question came up of
seizing the ships without the consent
of Holland, but the government has
held back from doing this, pending
some more satisfactory arrangement.
There has been no official announce-
ment regarding the matter but indi-
cations point toward an early settle-
ment of the difficulty.

Y. W G. A. STARTS WAR
SERVICE IN CANTONMENTS
HOSTESS HOUSES TO BE BUILT
NEAR CAMPS FOR GUESTS
OF SOLDIERS
Impprtant phases of war service
dealing with training camp conditions,
have been entrusted by the govern-
ment to the Young Women's Christ-
ian Association.
Among other needs, there has been
a great demand for so-called "hostess
houses," where friends of soldiers, vis-
iting the camps, may find lodging dur-
ing their stay. At these houses there
are also interpreters who attend to the
wants of foreign women who may
come to see their husabnds or sons.
These hostess houses are built only
at the request of the commanding of-
ficers. There has been a demand for
36 of these buildings, but they have
been able to complete only seven, up
to the present time.
The Y. W. C. A. is also doing ex-
tensive work in the towns and vicin-
ities near the training camps, improv-
ing environment and helping women
and girls to do their bit -in the most
profitable way.
A great call for Y. W. C. A. secretar-
ies to work among women in munitions
factories, and to improve conditions
for Red Cross nurses, has. come from
Russia, France, and England.

WOUNDED SHOULD NOT SMOKE
EXCESSIVELY, SAY SURGEONS
London, Nov. 14.-Army surgeons
display growing uneasiness on the sub-
ject of excessive cigarette smoking
among wounded and convalescent sol-
diers. Kindly people shower cigar-
ettes upon men who are struggling
back to health, and by this means, say
the doctors, retard recovery and even
do permanent injury to health.
The report of a London military
hospital superintendent says: "No
body objects to an invalid smoking
three or four cigarettes a day, but
there is great danger in 15 or
20. A patient returning to hospital af-
ter a day's leave is often found with an
irregular pulse due to too much ci-
garette smoking. This interferes with
sleep and leads to a general lowering
of vitality. The public should re-
member that a convalescent soldier is
more like a young boy than a grown
man in his power of resisting nico-
tine."
