The Call of the Red Cross
In theory at least, most of us recognize the obligations of our stew
ardship. Our possessions, few or many, are ours to administer in the
interest, very largely, of our fellows.
The practical question is, to which of the hundred and one calls
made upon us shall we respond.
There are certain claims which Religion makes; there are certain
other claims which Country makes; there are certain other claims still
which Humanity makes. Some men respond to one, some to another
and some to still another. He must be a hard hearted and recreant
man who will respond to no one of the three. And when a cause is
fortunate enough to combine all three incentives it must indeed present
a strong case. Such a cause is the American Red Cross. Can any one
doubt that it is a Divine call as it comes to us with the plea for help for
wounded men and starving widows and orphans; and we recall the
words of our Lord and Master "Inasmuch as ye did it unto the least of
these my brethern ye did it unto me." Can any one doubt that it ii
the urgent call of Country such as no real patriot can fail to heed? Can
any one doubt that it is the insistent call of humanity to which no
humane person can turn a deaf ear or close a tender heart?
To most of us surely such a cause as the Red Cross makes a triple
appeal and exerts a threefold pull, and this is the time to hear the call
and respond to its appeal. In the name of God, of Country and Human
ity contribute to the Red Cioss!
Red Cross Christmas
Many people are revising their Christmas lists this year. The pleas
ant habit wherebv Susan sends Mary a pink hand bag and Mary sends
Susan a lavender hand bag which neither of them would have bought
for herself while Tom sends Dick a box of cigars and Dick sends Tom
a more or less superfluous meerschaum pipe, is not appropriate at this
time, when people whose cause we have made our own are Buffering for
necessaries of life, and soldiers who are fighting our battles wait in pain
for the ambulance.
The Red Cross wants ten million new members this holiday season.
It wants all the money the resources and generosity of the American peo
ple can supply.
Make it, first of all, a Red Cross Christmas 1
Your Christinas does not need the usual litter of acknowledgements
and Christmas cards this year. It can well take all that for granted.
What it decidedly does need is knowledge that from your comfort and
security something has gone out to alleviate a little the boundless woe in
Europe. Without that knowledge, it will be a selfish, niggard Christ
mas which is no Christmas at all.
There should not be in all the United States a single Christmas
gathering without its membership in the Red Cross, and a contribution
to that cause as liberal as the means of the family will allow.
Every Christmas list needs revision this year, with Red Cross at the
top. If you have not done it already, write it down now. Saturday
Our Business Outlook
As we enter upon a new sugar season, under conditions of war en
tirely unprecedented, we may well wonder, with some anxiety perhaps,
what the future holds in store for our matenal prosperity.
We are assured of 6c sugar, we understand, and that, under or
dinary circumstances, would mean phenominal prosperity, but what it
will mean under existing and coming conditions is another thing.
The abnormal income from the high prices will be so seriously eat
en into by the abnormal expenses of production and by war taxes that
there will not be so very much left.
Materials of all kinds are going up steadily, fertilizer, lumber, coal,
bags, lime, leed stuns, etc; tnese all enter into the cost oi sugar very
largely, constituting perhaps one third of it; and indirectly. increasing
prices of materials, food stuns, etc. will increase the cost of labor, and
will furnish the justification for a more insistent bonus demand.
Increased freights will constitute another large increment of the
cost; we have the assurance that Coast freights will be doubled, and
probably Inter-Island freights will follow suit, in addition to which the
Bervice will be inadequate and uncertain.
The wages bonus, whatever the final outcome of it, will assuredly
constitute a very heavy burden which will go far to eat the heart out of
the high prices. .
Finally the heaviest burden of all for the prosperous places will be
the Excess Profits War Taxes.
These charges all taken together it is estimated will cut down the
6c to an equivalent of 4c as compared with pre-war conditions this
will mean the elimination of everything in the way of special dividends,
and in some cases perhaps all dividends; it is however confidently ex
pected that the usual regular dividends of the more prosperous old line
places will le continued. All of which admonishes us to go slow on ex
travagance and all unwarranted or unworthy expenditure.
