Yesterday's Tribune told of Hie
shameful and deplorable condition of
the Young Men's Chrlstlun Association
building, and already there have been
many letters received from generous
persons asking what could be done to
rectify this condition. The .remedy Is
offered In the present plan for raising
a fund to Finish und Furnish the build

If any young boys or girls choose to
do a good act they can give some kind
of a home entertainment or club to
gether, or collect money from their
friends. Then If these little ones care
to write a brief letter about It The Trib
une will gladly publish It.
While even so small a thing as 1
cent or even a postage stamp will be
received and acknowledged, there are
many who can afford 10 cents, $1, $.",
$10 or $100. A few of these large en
closures will soon swell the fund, but
whatever sum the sender thinks he
or she can afford will be Just ns grate
fully acknowledged In The Tribune's
columns as a check for $100. The daily
acknowledgments will be for money

In INN" tho association building was
only partly finished and furnished by
the Judicious expenditure of $:i.00O. Since
that yeur there Iras been no outlay ex
cept to I:p: ; the building und Its con
tents In repair. The members pay less
than one-half of the yearly expenses;
the balance Is supplied by generous
Scrantoii men und women. When it Is
considered that It costs about $!i,000 to
run the association one year, the
amount subscribed during the last
seven years may be readily ascer
tained. What It Doesn't Need.
The nssoelatlon Is not hamperpd
through want of space, snlurled olliclitls,
reading matter, free educatlonul facili
ties, entertainments and that sort of
thing. Of these It has nil It needs. Hut
It does need decent furniture, pleus
Ingly decorated walls, comfortable bath
rooms, a renovated gymnasium and
many other things of a like nature.
Now wlK-n It Is considered that Its
benefits .no enjoyed without restriction
upon religion or nationality, rich or
poor, when It Is considered Unit In a
given number of years It hns accom
plished more good than any similar or
ganization In the world, It does not
Heein possilde that a Sernnton public
will stand Idly hy while the association
is In need.
What the Young Men's Christian as
sociation hns done for hundreds of
resident nnd strange young men In this
city Is too well known to Invite argu
ment. It quite uaturally follows that
a debt Is owed to the association. There
is now an opportunity to square the
