"The Friend of the Belgians"
"The Friend of the Belgians",
such is the endearing title which has
been won by Mrs. J. S. Emerson of
Honolulu, who ever eince the begin
ning of the war, has devoted her
self unstintedly to the cause of the
Belgian Soldiers and Oiphans. Mrs.
Emerson secures "Godmothers" for
the lonely Belgian boys, many of
whom have lost sight entirely of
their families, and every month
hundreds of letters come and go
through her hands, written or trans
lated by her, for the "Godsons."
Every year at Christmas time Mrs.
Emerson conducts a Belgian Day in
Honolulu for the benefit of the poor
and needy in Belgium. This year
the proceeds will go for the found
ing of a Day-Nursery for the forlorn
and fatherless little mites of Beli
gium . Here children may be left
for the day while their mothers go
out to work. The institution is to
be called the "Day Nursery of
Hawaii", and the sum of $4000 is
needed to found it.
Honolulu's Belgian Day falls this
year on Saturday, the 15th. On
Friday, the 14th, a modest little
entertainment is to be given by
some of the Hawaiians girls of Li
hue, the proceeds of which are to
go towards founding a bed in this
Nursery. Mrs. Mesick will tell of
the needs of the children of Belguim
and of Mrs. Emerson's work. Mrs.
Mesick has been in close touch with
this work, and her address will' be
worth hearing. Come and hear
what she has to tell, and help the
girls to their bed, which will cost
them 820.00. Donations for the
Nursery will also be gratefully re
