Strong Appeal for Near East
^Columbia, Dec. 20.-E. 0. Black,
treasurer of the Near East Relief,
has received from Henry Morganthau
former ambassador to Turkey, a tele
gram telling of the deplorable con
ditions now existing in the Near East
and making an earnest plea to the
people of the United States not to
.-?bandon the little orphans who are
now heing taken care of by the con
tributions of the people of this coun
"America won the admiration and
gratitude of the Near East by disin
terested altruism and philanthropy
-during the past four years. Peace and
order have not been restored. These
people are still helpless. Their land
"has again been the battleground of
contending forces. Their efforts to
maintain independence have partial
ly failed owing to the superior force
of the neighbors.
"Large number of refugees have
.been dispossessed of their temporary
homes. Recent cables state that the
.roads, leading to the various places of
safety are crowded with refugees. A
hard winter has begun. The snow is
knee deep in many places. These
helpless refugees are again thrown
on our mercy. Unless we heed their
cry they will perish this winter by
"The situation is today worse than
it was last year. The Near East Re
lief is the only organization whose
dEunds are used for this work. Hun
dreds of thousands of these people
?are Irving today who would have per
ished had it not been for American
xelief. Large number of orphans now
in the more than two hundred or
phanages maintained by the Nea East
Itelief are totally dependent upon the
Near East Relief for the simplest ne
cessities of life. They must now be
left to perish after being rescued by
us. No matter where these people are
or which faction claims the right to
govern them the refugees are home
less orphans and helpless. Their faees
.are turned towards us in despair and
?expectancy. They are the Tiny Tims
of the Holiday season."
All contributions should be sent
to E. 0. Black,. Treasurer, Near East.

Normal Buying is Now Needed
Public refusal to buy has been car
afied to a point of false economy, and
normal buying must be resumed to
prevent a possible combination of
high prices and low wages and unem
ployment, was declared by Roger H.
Williams, vice-president of the Na
? tional Bank of Commerce in New
York, in a recent address at the
-eighth annual meeting of the! Con
verts Association at the Biltmore in
New York. Speaking further along
this line of normal buying Mr. Wil
""To my mind there is no greater
service that can be rendered today to
business and to the public than to re
establish a normal volume of buying.
And to do this it seems to me busi
ness and the public must come to an
understanding. It is through the pro
.cess of business, either directly or
.indirectly, that most of the so-called
.good things of life are accumulated
'which we all share, or try to. Unless
business is being done, unless there
as a fair distribution of activity,
"?here can be no prosperity to divide,
either between employer or employe,
business man or consumer.
"flt is no time to preach thrifti
ness now, but it is a time to place
emphasis on the need for san'ty in ,
buying. It is not thrifty to stop buy
ing altogether any more than it is
thrifty to consume all of our current
production without consideration of
the future. That is a wasteful way of
.doing business. It means extrava
.gaat production costs and waste of
materials in the boom period, and in
the period of depression it means de- *
teridration of goods not consumed. In
both periods, therefore ,it means
great waste of human endeavor-and
in the last analysis, the public pays
''''There axe a number of more di
rrect and obvious ways in which this
Testraint of buying is inflicting in
Jury. With goods flooding back on
'?heir hands, producers and distribu
ors have had to make abrupt curtail
ments of their activities, resulting in
unemployment and in many direc
tions in drastic wage cuts. Not only
are manufacturers and distributors
injured, but misfortune visits the i
working class with its resultant dis- ?
content and unsettlement. But the ill
effects of the movement do not stop.
e\cn here. A recession in buying car- '
ried too far, and producing too great
a stagnation in production and distri
bution, may result in a secondary era ,
of shortage and rebound in prices
?without an increase in real wages to
neet it..;'The result would be that
?&e pressure of the high cost of liv
ing on family economy, instead of
following the course of amelioration
that has set in, would again become
"Is there not a great threat in-the
present situation of such unfortunate
results as these? Is not the recession
in public buying forcing industry into
too great a curtailment of produc
tion? Will not, in other "??"ords, the
public pay a greater price for its
false economy thai, if it maintained
a more temperate attitude, both as
to buying in flush times and as to ab
stention from buying in a time such
as the present? Is it not true ?hat any
economic force which develops suf
ficient intensit yto injure a consider
able part of the public works injury
in ultimate effect to the body politic
as a whole? All must pay a part of
the cost.-Augusta Chronicle
