THEY SHALL NOT PERISH.
President Wilson has asked all Americans to
rally generously to the support of the Committee
for Relief in the Near East, whose campaign
comes January 12-19.
The need is urgent. Four million refugee wo
men and children, the victims of Turkish lust
and brutality, are starving and dying.
Thre is only one possible source of help
America. The other nations of the world can
scarce bind up their own wounds. Upon what we
do-you and I-depend the lives of these millions
of helpless women and children They must not
perish-they SHALL not perish.
The Government has asked the Committee for
Relief in the Near East to undertake the rescue
work among these victims of Turkish oppression.
During the past the year the Committe has cared
for over 900,000 refugees who otherwise would
There are now 4,000,000 dependent upon the

"LIBERTY BUILDINGS" AS MEMORIALS"
Approximately three million men of this coun
try have been trained in the different camps of
the country for service overseas. Most of this
number actually were sent across and have con
tributed their part to the great task of making
the world a safe place in which t olive.
Most of these thtee million men will return un

some will never see their homes again. To those

who shall live and to those who shall die,the Ame
ricar .eople will owe a debt they can never repay.
But as a visible recognition of that debt, they
will wish to erect in every community some fit
ting memorial. No mere shaft of marble or
granite can ever symbolize the Democracy for
which this world war has been fought.
The war has speeded human progress in many
ways. Let it establish yet another precedent.
Let our memorials of this conflict be structures
which will help the living while commemorating
the dead. As suggested before, let us begin in
every community the making of plans for neigh
borhood houses, to be known as Liberty build
il. n honor of our fellow townsmen who shall
:- rved uron the land or sea or in the air in
this w-r against tyranny.
Smo day all strife will end, because of this
victory to which men from our own community
-ae contributed. When that day comes let us
all be.ready in ever municipality, with our money

with our'buildi-Ag plans completed; with an opt
ion on the suit, if not already donated by the
public - spirited owner; and with an organiza
tion ah-eadY formed to administer the new co a
nvity home when built.
Let us plan our Liberty Buildings on no nig
i scale. The war has shown 'hat the Ame
rican people will give lavishly for a great cause.
Let us determine the needs of our cormunity an'
plan accordinly, including such facilities for r
re2tion. cultur e, fellowship and public s2rvice as I
a iractical idealism may suggest. If we live in
a large city, several buildings may be needed; if
a unc , will suffice.
Lct the erection of these Liberty Duildings be

ment when our returning soldiers or our indus
trial workers shall be in need of employment.
And finally, in planning, financing and adminis
tration, let us make c;ery possible use c5'istin.,
commercial and civic bodies, and.pf the na iy
war service organizations which-have been the
medium of patriotic effort in these days of strife.
For if, with the war at ari end, we of America can
turn our constructive works of peace our new
spirit and energy of public service, we shall have
achieved Liberty and- Democracy indeed.
