The first Young Women's Chris-
tian Association) in this country was
developed in Boston in 1866 when
ladles of Boston formed a society in
behalf o self-supporting girls who
came to the city to eek employment.
The aim of this was to fit them for
self-support Rooms were opened a
secretary" was put in charge to aid
these girls in finding employment
There were also some social and pro-
tective features as well as religious
meetings- and Bible classes. Two
years later a boarding home was start-
ed. Later buildings were erected pro-
viding for the physical education of
In 186S other pioneer city assocla?-
tions bearing the. title of Women's
Christian Associations were organized
In Hartford Providence and Pitts-
burgh. In 1869 Cincinnati Cleve-
land and St Louis formed similar so-
cieties. In other cities especially in

(By Southern Missionary News
After a careful study as to how the
Mexican people could best be helped
In the recent crisis In that country
the Red Cross Society decided to op-
en "soup kitchens" in the various city
wards and the experiment proved
very valuable indeed. The plan called
for the dally distribution of nourish-
ing meat and vegetable soups to fami-
lies presenting the necessary ticket
"We at once requested a number
of cards" writes a Methodist mission-
ary "for the worthy poor among the
363 families In our three conjrresra-
tions and we thought we had done
our part when we sent in their names.
But people began to come to us In
such great numbers asking to be en-1
rolled among the needy that we'
promptly telephoned the Red Cross
for permission to enroll 350 fami-l
lies. Next morning we began about
five o'clock and by noon had cared
for over a thousand cases.
"Then applications became so
numerous tnat we were obliged to
suspend further enrollment till all
cases could be examined In their own
Ing workers In our church circle.
These were sent out all over the city.
Jnto the thickly populated tenement
section Into the outskirts where peo-
ple live in huts everywhere in fact
reported to us that practically all
statements of dire need were abso-
"During the rest of that week our
city missionary and her helpers spent!
their time making duplicate cards
and recalling the originals in order
to send the 'soup tickets Issued by
the Red Cross Society.
"So many continued to apply to us
for help that we " decided to reopen
the lists and next morning people be-
gan to come as early as two o'clock
so as to get In line. By five o'clock
there was such a large crowd that In
order to handle them without con-
fusion we arranged them in a double
line. By giving numbers to each per-
son in front of the door we were able
to keep the crowd moving in an or-
derly way and no one who came late
could get Into the front ranks.
"By ten o.'clock 2150 people most-
ly women had passed through our
front door gone into the church
where thirty nvorkers were ready to
enroll them and had gone out again.
"At that hour firing was heard on
the streets near by and some bullets
came down our way. Then the peo-
ple In line rushed down -anothergtreet
and became confused. As It seemed
unwise to continue the registration
while the people were exposed In the
street we had to stop. But It took
an hour to persuade those who hung
around the door that we could do
nothing until) the next week.
Suffering Was Pitiful.
"The suffering of these poor hun-
gry people was Indeed pitiful. One
old man apparently dying was
brought to us. He had had nothing
but water for three days. He was
carefully tended fed with soup and
after a few hours was able to go
to his home One woman reported
that two of her children had starved
to death the week before.. And one
poor man dieb of hunger on the very
corner of our street
"This has been a great opportunity
for us to get in touch with the people.
Thousands have entered our church
who had been taught to believe that
their souls would be lost if they dared
to do such a thing. Once within the
church while waiting their turn to
be enrolled they had a few moments
in which to read the ten command-
ments the Apostles' Creed and the
Lord's Prayer which are painted In
largo letters on the front wall of the
church. Besides they always found
our workers courteous willing to lis-
ten to their tales of distress and to
do allt they could for them as well as
to add a kind word of sympathy.
"On Teavlng the church each per-
son received a copy of the Ten Com-
mandments printed on a large sheet
of paper. Many had never seen these
before. Later our workers went to
each home represented so as to learn
more about these families. In this
way a hew point of contact was es-
tablished and our workers had a new
opportunity to dispel the old preju
dice against Protestints. One of our
missionaries found that a Roman
Catholic priest had advised hispeoplo
to go to the Protestant church to en
roll for Red Cross help.
. Churches Asked to Help.
"Our church has been requested to
take charge of the soup kitchens In
the third ward of the city. This wjll
mean several hours of daily contact
with the people as they come for the
portions of food allotted to them. We
believe that God has been keeping us
here for such a day as this and we
ask the prayers of Christian people
everywhere that we may be equal to
the task before us."
