In the Y. M. C. A. rooms Thursday afternoon, on "Belgium Before the War
and After." This address was of unusual Interest, coming from one who
has witnessed the things that have
happened In ravaged Belgium.
The speaker gave a picture of Belgium In her prosperous days before

of the Hun. In speaking of Belgium

she took for granted that Belgium is

Flemish and Walloons, but "Flemish

barren tract in their wake. Tho physically wrecked, the unconquerable
spirit of Belgium has never quailed,

spoke very highly of the aid given Belgium by the United States, how In
1914, when the Germans robbed every
baker and every butcher shop, leaving
the country without any food, Mr.
Hoover had food sent to alleviate the
famine, and how nobly Brand Whit-locacted toward Belgium in protecting her against the Germans.
