"Idfe's Xo Different Than It Was
Then" She ODBervea, In Re
sponding to Appeal.
Here is an extract from a letter that
came to The Argus Santa Claus fund
"In reading your appeal In behalf of
the poor little ones of the city I re
called my childhood days, more than
40 years ago. More than one Christ
mas passed in our home when I, one of
seven children, suffered the disappoint
ment that every child feels in being
neglected at this happiest season of
the year. In after years, when I began
to better understand life and its hard
ships, I realized that Christmas gifts
were luxuries, and that my parents
had about all they could do to keep
the family in the actual necessities of
life. I am now the mother of grown
children. I am a grandmother, and
each year there are additional mem
bers of my family little folks whom I
rejoice in being able to provide re
membrances that I was denied during
my childhood. Conditions are not much
different now than they were when I
was a little girl. It's simply life over
and over again. Please add my dollar
to your fund, and I hope that every
man, woman and child in the city, able
to do so, will assist in this most com
Fund I OrOTrlnsr.
The ArguB Santa Claus fund Is prow-
ine; daily, but the amount received to j
date is far from what it must hp if th
jioor children of the city all arc to be j
rempmberpd with gifts and goodies on J
Christmas. Thp churches and the !
charity organizations see to it that '
food, fuel and clothing are provided !
families in want throughout the year :
in Rock Island. The children's cause j
is one apart from this work. ,
No publicity attaches to the contrih-;
utor or to the beneficiary. It's all as
secret as is the visitations of old Santa '
himself. If it is your wish that your
name not hp publicly revealed, your
request will he respected hy The Argn j
Santa Claus fund committee. You will !
simply he given a receipt indicating
the amount of your subscription. Yon
don't have to take this unless you ;
wish to. I
Christmas week the entire amount of!
the subscription wi'I turned over to
Miss Dina Rantscr. police matron, and
Miss Margaret Giles, the visiting :
nurse, and they will purchase the gifts
and goodies and supervise their dis- '
tribution. Both these ladies are in
touch with conditions among the poor
families of the city. ;
One of Two Pinna, '
You have the option in choice of two
plans of lending your aid either send
In your subscription of money, no mat - :
ter the amount, or fill one of the blanks j
running in The Argus, and mail it, and
in due course of time you will be sup-1
plied the names, sex and addresses of
hs many children as you desire person- i
ally to play Santa Claus to.
It's a beautiful opportunity to assisr j
in a cause that can't fail to appeal to !
the hearts of all.
Who would, for the sake of a dollar, '
or a half dollar, or even a quarter, suf- j
fcr the thought that it was his or her;
indifference that brought the pangs of
disappointment to the heart of a little j
boy or girl on Christmas morn?
Buy your Christmas pres:
ent3 early early in the
day and early in Decem
ber. That will be your
biggest gift of the holi
days to the workers be
hind the counters and on
the delivery wagons.
