THE 11EII rKOSS"
(BY HERBERT HOOVER)
Secretary of Commerce and Chair
man of the American Relief Ad
An appalling situation of suffering,
involving hundreds of thousands of
people who have been forced to flee
from their homes in the Near East
and to seek refuge In lands already j
burdened with care, has emphasized
to the people in this country that the
American Red Cross is our National
Emergency Fund with which to meet(
great crises In disaster. The accentu
ation of the fact is the greater in
that the particular calamity now ap
pealing to Immunity has fallen ust
In advance of the American Red
Cross animal Roll Call.
The resources of the American ,
Red CrosB must be aunually replen
ished through the Roll Call. This,
year the summons is seconded by a
concrete emergency of the kind that
is ever liable to be precipitated upon
the world. It is impossible for the
Red Cross to be dependent upon a'
public appeal for specific objects, be-j
cause when emergency and disaster!
face us we huve uo time to wait uu-1
til funds cau be raised. The Rod
Crois Is our ever-ready agency for
responding to the call of calamity
the moment the alarm is sounded.
The American Red Cross should
have a minimum membership of ten
million In order that its reserves may
be equal to our domestic and our for
eign emergencies in humane pur
poses. In the light of my experience
iu relief work throughout the world,
I feel it a duty to express my person
al hope that the people of America
will show their confidence in their
Red Cross in this Roll Call in un
mistakable terms. Let's all get be
hind the Red Cross and give it ten
million member for Its great work.
HARDING CALLS EXTRA
SESSION OF CONGRESS
Washington, Nov. 9. Congress
was called in special session today
by President Harding for the pur
pose of grappling with the Adminis
tration's programme before the regu
lar session in December. The pro
clamation calling Congress together
at noon on November 20 gives no
intimation of its purpose other than
the explanation that public necessity
In the background are the two
important features of the programme
which were left alone by the last
session until after elections were
over the ship subsidy and the
amendment of the' Esch-Cummlns
Transportation Act. Minor measures
may occupy . the attention of Con
gress, such as the proposition to loan
Liberia (5,000,000 and the antl-
lynching bill, but they will be side
attractions to the big show.
The call for the extra session is
interpreted as registering the inten
tion of the Administration to attempt
a leadership which has been absent
during the first two years of its his
tory' and force through as much
legislation as the time will allow.
The personnel of the Senate and the
House leaves no doubt but that Ad
ministration measures will have bard
sledding and the ship subsidy will
have no chance at all.

which seem to have developed, I
deem It my duty to make this state
ment. "I shall be a candidate for gov

matter how many others run, or
where they come from. I shall also
outline my views on the problems
which confront the next governor in
language which everybody will thor
"I shall not seek this office to
gratify my personal ambition. . My
own preference was to remain in
congress, as everyone knows, who
has talked with me about it: I de
cided to run at the urgent solicita
tion of thousands of people over this
state, who are as much interested in
the governmental regeneration of
Kentucky as any others are.
"This Is what I shall be in the
race for, and If there is one who
thinks I will not fight to bring it
about, let him govern himself ac
cordingly." By his statement Mr. Barkley is
the first candidate to announce, oven
