: FOR POOR KIDDIES
Santa Claus Storehouse at
608 Chestnut Street a
Veritable Fairyland of
Mora than 000 children or Philadelphia
tiara responded to tho appeal sent out by
the l'onMo LEIiOEn Santa Cln.ua Club
for donations of toys and nickels to give
the poor kids of the city, with no pros
peels of n Christmas celebration, a huge
surprise on the morning of the 25th. Even
the optimistic Santa Claus Iady In chaise
of Kllsa Krlngle'a storehouse, at COS
Chestnut street did not dream of such an
Exactly two weeks ago an unoccupied
ofllco was opened and two Ions boards
placed In It. It was barren of decora
tlons and devoid of cheerfulness. Today
that name ofllco looks like a .veritable
folryjand. It Is a. treasuro house filled
brimful with myriads of wondrous toys
and dollies and alt the things that kid
dles dream about on Christmas eve when
tho -time draws near for Santa to pull
up to the chimney with his reindeer team.
The two tables are no longer bare. In
fact, they have been supplemented by
three more, and on all of them thousands
of contributions, flossy-haired dolt babies
and wee animals, to say nothing of the
mechanical toys, are fairly crowding each
othor to tho edges for room, and It's all
that the Santa Claus Lady and the sev
eral assistants she has had to press Into
ervlce can do to find space for those
Lying In one corner of the room an
important looking stack of bundles, not
yet opened, gives promise of more sur
prises for tho poor kiddles. More than
a. thousand dollies alono-havo been sent
in, together with a thousand Christmas
stockings filled with toys and candles.
In addition, there aro engines, trains,
forts, soldiers, drums, games, books and
s whole menagerie of lions, sheep, dogs
and pussy cats living amicably on one
table, awaiting distribution Christmas
Prom all over the city the churches
are sending to the Santa Claus Lady
lists of children In their pnrlnhcs whose
Christmas will be only a hearsay affair,
if somo one doesn't look after them, and
so voluminous are the lists that Santa
had to declaro against the reindeer method
of transportation from the very begin
ning. Starting very early in the morn
ing of the 25th, 53 Punuc and Evening
Lbdobr automobiles will whin away,
here, there and everywhere, with a speed
that will make Director Taylor's rapM
transit plan seem snail-like, and before
the day Is very far advanced, the good
work will have been accomplished. '
WORST CHRISTMAS IN WORLD
HISTORY, MINISTER SAYS
The Bv. C. L. Oodell Declares
Church Should Stop "War.
"This Is the worst Christmas the world
has ever seen," said the Rev, Dr. Charles
L. dodell, pastqr of St. PaUT.s McthodUt
Episcopal Church, addressing the Asso
ciation of Methodist Ministers today at
thcli Weekly meeting in Wesley Hall,
101? Arch street.
"These ore bad doys for the church,"
he continued. "Blood Is flowing In tor
rents and the Christian spirit seems to
have been generally forgotten In Europe.
Now Is the time for the church to rise
up and dominate tho situation and bring
about the cessation of this war. And the
lead should be taken In the United States,
for there is no country that could do It
Doctor Oodell denounced tho host of
"armament howlers," declaring that peace
could not be assured by force of arms.
"Had it not been that Oermany was so
well armed wo would not have a war
at this time," he said.
The Itev, Dr. Oodell said that, while
some were opposed to "Billy" Sunday's
methods in bringing people back to the
church, he waa In favor of his work
because he appealed to the people In
the language that they can understand.
"After he has brought converts to the
churches," said the preacher, "it Is up to
you ministers to develop the seed that
he has sown."
