THE ORDER OF GOOD FELLOWS
IS OPEN TO EVERYBODY
Boys and Girls, Men and Women, May All
Join This Association Formed to
Help Santa Claus.
' Thls is -what a littlo letter that came to The Times office this morning
Dear Mister Editor:
Papa read the story about the Good Fellows helping
Santa Claus in tonight's Times. Isn't there anyway for
Margie and me to be Good Fellows7 We haven't any
money, but we have some toys we are willing to give
Santa Claus. Please let mo know If there is any way.
P. S. Margie is my sister.
Bless your little heart, of course you and Margie can be GOOD
JTELLOWS. The association of GOOD FELLOWS is for JuBt such as you,
Ifbr folks whose hearts are filled with sympathy for the unfortunate, whoso
bands are willing to help and whose generosity extends to all the un
known world. Your toys will be as welcome as anything could be and
Banta Claus and the other little children of Washington will hail you by
your well 'deserved title of GOOD FELLOW.
Every child In Washington can be A GOOD FELLOW and The Times
invites from everyone of the little folks in this great city such contribu
tions of toys as he or she feels she can give to Santa Claus for
'distribution through The Times to the less fortunate children of the city.
In order that everybody, men and women, and boys and girls may
understand JuBt -what being A GOOD FELLOW meanB we reprint below
from yesterday's Times, the explanation of the plan:
The Times has come to be recognized as the most direct medium of
communication between the little folks and Santa Claus. For some years
The Times has delivered hundreds and hundreds of letters each year to
the Jolly old fellow, who, for three hundred and sixty-four days busies
himself making ready for the night of the three hundred, and sixty-fifth
So far as The Times knows no message addressed to Santa Claus has
ever gone astray. As a matter of fact the communication between The
Times and Santa Claus la so direct that there isn't any possibility of a
slip-up nor any chance that the message will not get to him, so every
little boy or girl who has something to say to Santa Claus can be assured
that if they will write out their wishes and address it to Santa Claus, In
care of The Times, delivery will be absolutely certain.
But this year from the way the letters have started, even this early it '
looks as if the records dVpafct yWs,werejKlng.,tOibe;btokan,thatfth;'
malt for Santa Claus was going to He BcrmuerMarger than usual that Santa
Claus will need assistance in handling it. And it is for this reason that
The Times has conceived the idea of forming a sort of assistant corps
for Santa Claus.
Now Santa Claus wouldn't let anybody assist him who isn't a good
fellow, and so everybody who volunteers as an assistant to Santa Claus is
going to be known as "A GOOD FELLOW." In fact, there's going to bo a
society of GOOD FELLOWS begun right now, because the flrBt of this
corps of assistants volunteered this morning and accompanied tho mes
sage with a fifty-cent piece. That makes GOOD FELLOW Number One,
and there are going to be thousands more.
In order to become A GOOD FELLOW all that is necessary is to vol
unteer to assist Santa Claus and send to The Times whatever assistance
you feel disposed to send. You can send it in money, you can send it in
toys, you can send it in things that are necessary for little folks'
Christmas. And girls and women can be GOOD FELLOWS just as well as
men, for this association of assistants to Santa Claus does not bar any-'
body from membership. YOU can be A GOOD FELLOW Just as well
as anybody else.
And Tho Times is going to furnish you evidence that you are A
GOOD FELLOW, for Santa Claus has given personal approval to a form of
certificate which will be sent to everyone who volunteers, it reads

The books are open for volunteers. For men and women, for folks of
'all kinds. A penny makes you A GOOD FELLOW Just as much as a check
for a hundred dbllars, if in giving that penny you fulfill in your own mind
the spirit of Chrlbtmas and contribute as much to Santa Claus as you
ilthink you ought Every GOOD FELLOW is his own Judge.
Now, aB to the little folks. The letters to Santa- Claus have begun
to come in Just aB they have other years Perhaps you are one of the
little folks who haB already written. If you are, your letter Is already
on the way. If you haven't written yet there is plenty of time if you begin
right off today.

never written, Just address the envelope to Santa Claus, care of SOME
