PERSONS ASKED TO FOREGO
LUXURIES ON DEC 16 AND
GIVE PRICE TO THE
WILL BE RECEIVED
Proposed to Torn Money Over to
Salvation Army to Be Used
by Them in Charity's
To what extent the good people of
Anderson believe that "it is more
blessed to give than to receive" and
in what measure they appreciate that
"Inasmuch as ye have done it unto
the least of t?rese ye have done it also
unto me" will be shown on Wednes
day, December 16, for that has been
designated as "Self-denial. Day," on
which occasion they are importuned
to deny themsef/es some small luxury
and give the cash equivalent of that
luxury to the Salvation Army, in or- 1
der that the hungry may be fed, the
naked clothed, the sick ministered
unto and some ray of happiness
brought to the stranger within the
city's gates whose ship of fortune
has gone upon the rocks.
Jt is the suggestion of one of An
derson's whole-souled and kind-heart
ed citizens-Lee G. Holleman-that a
day be set aside when contributions
shall be given to this worthy cause.
No ope lg asked to go down in his
pocket end give ic be cac not afford
it. In tuet, no one ls asked to go to
any expense over and above what one
would naturally spend in the course
of a day. Were that the case, lt
would not bo "Self-denial Day." it
is intended that the significance o'
the word self-denial apply strictly.
On that' day every person ls asked to
forego somo minor luxury-the prtce
of a cigar, a glass of coca-cola, car
fare, the amount ot gasoline that
would be consumed by his automo
bile that day, a blt of candy, chewing
gum, etc.-and Rive the cash equiva
lent of that luxury to the Sal vat'on
Army, to be used by thia worthy or
ganisation in its noble work.
Were to Leave Funds. .
Mr. Holleman stated that donations
to the cause may be left at hf A bank
The Intelligencer will cheerhilly re
ceive funds and turn- them :?ver to tile
proper authorities. And it ls probable
that there will ?ra otfj??r places whers
funds 'may be left.
, The Idea, stated Mr. Holleman. ls
to prevail upun every man, woman
and c?lld i*i the city of Anderson
and those from the country who may
be In the city that day-to deny him
self or herself some small luxury just
for tHi i day, and give the amount of
money which would bo expended for
that luxury to tho cause of charity.
The man who-relishes ? glass ot
coca-cola or some other drink at thc
soda fountain is ' asked to abstain for
that dav and gb<i tho amount which
he would snend for that luxury to
this cause. The one who likes a cigar
is asked to do the same thing. The
ono who; rldes the street car ls ask
ed to walk that dav. if possible, and
give the amount or his car fare to the
poor. The one who would play a
game of pool ls prevailed upon ; to
deny himself the pleasures of . the
green cloth, the cue and the b-11 for
that day, or one game, at least, and
give that amount to the Salvation
Army. The man who Tiden In his au
tomobile is asked to let the car re
main in the garage that day and give
tho nrlce of the gasoline the machine
would use to thia cause. There are
a thousand and one luxuries that a<?n
enjoyed every day which could be
dlsnensed with for one day, and the
; cash equivalent of these luxuries
given to the Salvation Army for Its
However, if a oerson feels that he
: or she can not deny himself, or her
self some Inxurv even for a dav, that
person is urged to enjoy the luxury
as usual, but git? the price of the
luxurv to the cause. Tint lt ls sug
gested that self-denial be practiced
In thin Instance, for- In that way no
one win be any the noorer when n'ght
cornea for having given to the Salva
tion Army, for the money would have
boon ?pent anv way tor Inxurfes.
