from the war and have not been pro-
ided for by the French government.
The contributions, usually 50 cents a
month, are purely voluntary and no I
definite pledges have been made The.
fund now- supports about twenty-four
children, who receive not only the'
comforts of a home but the ad-.i
vantages of an education.
Years ago Prof. Paul Passy. in the
interests of social work, offered the
use of a farm in Northern France for
a co-operative colony. Children had

until the war. when the need cf a home
was realized, and then one of the
colony buildings was utilized.
An extract from a letter receied by
Professor Ankeney from Piofessor
Passy shows some of the difficulties
in maintaining the home:
'The reward of Columbia friends
must be to think how much good thej

more difficult to feed our little chil-'
