Groups New Army Task **• Men who go into the new army will know one feature that was a commonplace to the men o£ 1917-18. That is the weli'arc centers -conducted by the Y. M. C. A., Salvation Army, K. of C., Jewish Welfare Board, and similar organizations. As- the new cantonments;-, rise, each has a recreation center, but it will be army-built and army-controlled. The writing; paper, the exhortations to write home, the piano in the corner, the dog-eared magazines and; books, the lounging chairs and checker sets will be administered by the army itself, through a Morale Division- hi: Washington. Social workers and National Youth Administration employes will take the place of the "Y-Workers" and Salvation Army Lassies of the World War. Religious organizations are being urged to do their part no.- less actively than before, but in another way. They ore being urged to minister to the rec- c reational and spiritual needs of the soldiers outside the military reserva-^ tions, in the hours when the men are on pasfr and not under direct military control. The army considers the problem of the young man- on leave in a large and : strange city with: no place to go and nothing constructive to do as one more worthy the attention ot the private welfare organizations than.,that of recreation during off-hours v jn r the camps themselves. ' * There has been considerable confusion among welfare groups willing and anxious to offer their services, yet uncertain as to-just what they may properly do. Only the general: lines have been laid down: that "legitimate and appropriate services by civilian weltare agencies arc to be solicited, with the only stipulation that there be no more installations on military reservations." Permanent installations, like the Y's elaborate one on Governor's Island in New York, will not be disturbed. But as a* general, policy new ones will not be set up. Organizations seeking to contribute to. the spiritual and physical weilj-being of the soldiers will do it in town,- not in. camp. The field: forr such work is a largo one. It; is hard j'or military authorities to. control the activities of men on pass, harder still to control the places of entertainment which cater to the soldier trade but which are outside military jurisdiction. A large field for beneficial welfare work among .soldiers is still open to private, organizations. But the sooner Honor Enough For All A faint monsoon, even if not a genuine tempest, seems to have been brewed in a teapot by the designation oi Pan American Aviation Day on Dec. 17, the anniversary of the Wright Brothers. Certain private interests procured passage of a joint resolution by Congress authorizing choice of this date. They failed to mention the South Americans who made such splendid contributions to the birth of human flight. What was intended as a good-will gesture, thus offended. Brazilians who honor Santos-Dumont and Guzman, and Peruvians who celebrate Chavez, Cardenas and Bielovucie. The State Department has had to remind 1 these sponsors of their omission. Surely in so great a field, there is enough honor for alK We are obliged, for the reminders .that came instantly to call: attention to the services of these South American pioneers. It is'one of the, things that unites peoples—the way in which men of genius in diverse countries bring diverse talents to bear on a single problem, and: all contribute a share in a single solution. Honor to any of -these air pioneers only brightens the luster ol? the others.- Resistance?. American newspapers have come in for a good deal' of criticism iro recent months., much- of it based on the thesis that they failed, to espouse the most popular side politically.

I'm spending a great deal of time in the Bailey home now, with the old man and the army, and—" "And weeth Ronica!" Lona put on?" Wesley's eyes had wid- ned. He glanced at Ronica, who had looked . up quickly.. Then Monica herself answered for Colonel McDavid. "Sure, Wes. It's a place away in. GIRARDEAU topped a low hill with his car and braked easily to a halt. He turned to the girl at his side. "Now you can see what I mean," said he, 'pointing. "That darkest spot is the Bailey home, the main 'ranch house. There's no moon out now but on a lighter night you can study the place carefully from -here. To the left you see the blurs— those are the hangars. They aren't more than 200 yards from the main house and the army men sleep right there. Understand?" "Correct," agreed Andre, shrewdly. "I see a lot of her. It's part of the game. It's our best stroke of fortune, really. But —you know me, Lona. It's all business there. I've never seen any girl with as much fascination as you have. Never." He slid a strong arm arounc her and squeezed-her close to him "When that's over, Lona, it's me and you and a high time together forever, -and don't you think i isn't. All right?" He didn't wait for an answer He just bent to kiss her, pressing his lips hungrily- on Lena's again and again, squeezing her shoulde and s feeling her response. Something in Andre Girardea took 'immense satisfaction out of over yonder I know about. And .'11 see to it he goes, Colonel. May I take him in rriy own plane?" Colonel McDavid laughed be- || lignly. "Certainly, .Miss Ronnie! I don't doubt but what Dr. York, will have a better afternoon with you—if Girardeau has no objection. Personally, if I were young Girardeau, I wouldn't tolerate any other man's hanging around. You are a very charming young lady 1 ." Ronica half frowned. "Girardeau? But, Colonel, what has Andre—?"

And I want to do a little private snoop- ng on that 1 ." Wesley's brow burrowed. in a look of confusion. This was his second visit to the Rocking R Ranch. First time, at night, he had become involved in a most unfortunate mixup; and this time, as Ronica's invited dinner guest, the conversation at least had suddenly taken a strange turn again.
