One article of interest to be found
at the Red Cross Shop is an old

It would be a pity to dispose of it
for the old metal it contains, when
many would value an article of this

Commander of the American Forces in France
wants your loyal, unselfish help in the
Campaign, November 11 to 18.
It is to keep the morale of America's and her Allies troops at the top notch, that
the seven organization's work is considered as an ESSENTIAL.
Because Bulgaria, Turkey and Austria-Hungary surrendered
even though Germany might be forced to her knees in the next
few months, there will still be a gigantic work for these same
organizations in keeping the men happy and comfortable during
the period between the first real armistice and the final departure
from Europe, which should be at least a year from now.
But we have plenty of opportunity to know Germany's
ways. There is no reason to think that she is in real earnest
now in her protested desires for peace. A little delay now, and
she will be ready again to fight for another year; and another
year of bloody battles for our boys over there is the thing to
Let us not sit back in fancied security and fail to do all we can for the soldier boys in France, whose hardships under the best of
conditions we can only dimly realize.
And all we can do calls for an unreserved money contribution to the great campaign that is being waged all over the country.
Of that big sum that is to be raised, Hawaii's quota is
$215,000 or nearly one dollar for
each man, Aoman and child.

And it means that every man, woman and child must for
get his own needs, his own desires, his own pleasures ; it means
that each one must put their whole mind and soul into the
raising of this great sum until the last dollar is paid in.
