THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, MAY 10, 1918.
1 I 111 lit rliTlllr
Broken and shattered in body but alive and
on the road to health again.
Suppose you had a son so wounded.
Suppose he should come home to you now as he surely comes to you in thought.
Then you would know what the Red Cross means, not to your boy
alone, but to all Humanity.
For without the Red Cross, your boy might not have had his chance to live.
He would have lain in torture on the battle field until death came. .
The Red Cross gives him 97 chances in a hundred to come back to you alive.
Are those chances too insignificant to pay for?
A thousand negatives answer, and yours is among them.
But your words count nothing to the dollars.
When the Red Cross agent calls upon you, be ready to give to the utmost, unstintedly. It is a small enough price to pay
tor the life of somebody s boy. Pledge regular payments for the year, if you can. It is the most satisfactory way.
