This sudden problem of thous- ands of men idling on street, wandering aimlessly down jamm- ed sidewalks, a traget for vicious elements ready to exploit their entertainment hunger, have set civic leaders to thinking. Some communities with plentiful local resources have sought their own solutions. Most communities, how- ever, are utterly unable to cope with the situation themselves and the problem becomes a national one-- problem which is now be- ing solved nationally through the United .Service Organizations fcr National Defense.

Wht is this organization and what are its plans for meeting this vital need? The U. S. 0. is primarily a coordinating group to direct and supervise the activitle of six well known national agen- cies which are thoroughly faaml- iar through first hand experience with the fundamental needs ef this kind of a situation. They are the Y. M. C. A., the Catholic Community Service, the Salvation Army, the Y. W. C. A., the Jewish Welfare Board and the National Travelers Aid Association. U. S. O:'s major objective is the building up and maintenanc. of the morale of the defense forces through the operation of 360 ser- vice clubs or recreational centers adjacent to military camps, naval stations and defenee industries. The government will build or otherwise acquire these facilities and U. S. O. will operate them through public and private sub- scriptions. Every community in the country will participate in this good work and men, women and children everTwhere will be given the opportunity to register their azapreciation of the soldiers and sailors who are now serving their country. Obviowsly, most towns ere i soldiers who crowd into them in their leisure hours. Nor have they themselves the funds to supply these facilities. What is the re- sult? The boys wander around aimlessly. They window-shop. They buy a soda or a sandwich; they can't buy much on $21.00 a month As one of them put it: "What good is it to be on leave when there is no place to go and nothing to do?" Unfortunately, the vicious elements cam alway be counted upon to provide the Tong answer to that question. Mothers, fathers, wives amd sweethearts come to visit; some come a long way. There is no place for them to meet; no place, fequently, for the visitors to stay. One commanding officer reporLs that every weekend 25 qr 30 rel- atives of soldiers cam to sleep in.
