Y.M.C.A.—The calling up of the older groups is giving rise to many questions as to the comfort and provision for our brave soldiers, both training at home and also in the field.

Shortly West and North Wales is to have in each I town and village a flag day in aid of the Y M.C.A. hnt fund, and there is no appeal that should meet with a warmer response. Manned by ineligible and over-age men, tboae huts have proved not only a place of reat comfort for the men, but a help to the omoers in main- taining discipline and sustaining that spirit of feUowsbip which has made the British army the greatest military force in the world. When flag day comes it should be borne in mind that contri. butors are not helping the Y.M.C.A., but those who have given all for the coun- try. ?_ ) The Art Picture House. — The well- I known Gaumont Exclusive, No Greater f Love," was shown at this popular Picture House on Tuesday and Wednes- day, and proved a. great draw.
