"I trust by this time the Red Cross
needs no endorsement. Its value is
beyond all words. One is honored by
the privilege of membership, anl
blessed in being permitted to make
any kind of contribution to its work.
The Red Cross takes individual gifts
and highly multiplies their efficiency
by linking them with its magnificent
total and its wonderful orgarization.
Every sentiment of sympathy, human
ity and generosity is in and behind
the appeal of the Red Cross. Of
course, there are other appeals, but
this is not the day to set of:o appeal
over against another. Those who love
America, believe in humanity, and
have faith in God must count them
selves proud to answer all the appeals
whether they come from the Red
Cross, or for Liberty Bonds, for spe
cial work for churches or Young
Men's Christian Asocisation. We
have not yet touched the deep springs
of our devotion and generosity. I
hope there will be the largest possible
response to this appeal."
