CAROLINA'S COAL ONLY HALF
Reached In liaising Funds-$75,000
is Fart Shu Should Fay.
About one-half the $33,000,000
asked for by Herbert Hoover for the
starving little children of Central
Bu rope and tba Baltic provinces has
been raised. Wm. Elliott, the Stale
chairman for the European Belief
Council, says that ho has just receiv
ed a telegram from Mr. Hoover lo
thal effect. The past week was al
record-breaker, with the inagnillcent
gift of one million dollars from John
1). Rockefeller, Jr. the largest in
dividual gift yet received by Mr.
lloovor for the "Invisible Guests."
Mr. Elliott "says, however, that
even with this splendid gift, tho goal
ls only half reached in South Caro
lina as well ?ts throughout the coun
try. The minimum quota for this
State ls $7r,.000. and South Caro
lina has already given, taking Into
conslderaton all the money received
n New York through all sources, to
gether with that not yet reported to
national headquarters, approximate
ly $38,000. Therefore, wo must yet
raise, urges Mr. Elliott, tho other
half asked of us if South Carolina is
is to keep up her end of tho line as
she always does. Wo will do this if
every South Carolinian fully realizes
that there are two starving children
in Central Europe for every man,
woman and child in this State, white
and black. Evory one should, there
fore, become a self-appointed mem
ber of tho State's organization to
savo a lifo, if not two, and to get
and to give as much money as they
possibly can for theso starving lit
tle children. One dollar a month
not a day, as it would have cost ex
cept under Mr. Hoover's splendidly
organized methods-will feed and
?save a child's life.
All chocks In South Carolina
should bo made payable to Franklin
