Every man who has become ac
quainted with Brunswick Tires
knows that Brunswick standards
are again evident. This famous con
cern— noted as a leader in every
line it entered since 1845 —has once
more proved that its policy is right.
A perfect tire is simply a matter
of knowledge and standards and
skill. No secrets nor patents pre
vent making an ideal tire.
But standards come first. For, in
tire making there is vast room for
skimping, for subtle economies, for
hidden shortcomings. Makers with
out the highest standards don't
build high-grade tires.
The Brunswick organization of
tire makers includes a brilliant staff
of technical experts. Not a man

Photos of Wasting Children.
As further evidence of the great ne

reproductions of a number of photo
graphs of children, suffering as the result
of under-nourishment, were enclosed in
the letter to Miss, Haeberle. One of
these pictures was taken by the units
of the American Friends Servic3 Com

Berlin. It shows a normal child, two
and one-half years old, and another child,
the same age, who has been crippled by
lack of food and by rickets. The picture
is typical of thousands of the little
German children. Throughout the in

in the Saxony district, the children of
parents who work in factories and mills
are suffering because of lack of nourish
ing food. Some of them have never
tasted milk, many of them have been fed:
only on a watery, potato diet. Their^
food has not contained lime or mineral
salts, therefore, thier bones are not
strong, and unless help c£n come to them
in a very short time, they ar doomed to?
lives of misery. Many of them are al-j
already crippled for life, yet extra food
at' this time means that they will be
stronger and better than if food does not|
come to them.
The picture shows the effect'of under
nourishment, which so often results in
rickets. The large, distended abdomen,
swollen joints, shriveled limbs and arms,
puffed and flushed faces, are typical if
all such cases. .B^-£\?4r&&$Mr'ts\s*

Herbert Hoover recognized the dis
interested and non-political character of
the Quakers, and when he looked about
for a group to head up the relief work in
Germany, he asked the American Friends'
Service^Committee to take charge of it.
The way, therefore, is open for every
one who is interested in relief work for
^Germany to contribute to the great need.
There is no question of pro-Germanism.
The Quakers are interested only in help

Food Transported Free. -&-\
According to arrangements with federal
authorities, all food purchased by the
Service Committee is transported free to
Germany!^ iThe Quakers bear all ex
penses both in the United, States and
Germany. Therefore, every dollar do
nated to the work is used to buy food for
the suffering children. However, this
arrangement continues only until July
1 of this year. It takes at least five
weeks to get, food ordered and shipped
to -Germany. Therefore, contributions
must be sent at once to the American
Friends Service Committee, 2 South
Twelfth street, Philadelphia, Pa., or to
the local organization. Mrs. Meta Crone
of this city is treasurer of the Relief
Committee for New Ulm and vicinity.
Official receipts are s"ent for all money
contributed and names of all contributors
are published in the daily papers in
I Much Food Under Way.
$2/760,000 worth of food is actually
on the way to Germany. It is proposed
to raise another million to enable the
continuation of the good work, as the
suffering is intense and general.
