".\ ret,. net of nirey draivii through
an ocean of unsIeakable pain"
OUT OF THE BLEEDING HEART OF EUROPE theie
comes a cry heard above the moan of the broken body
racked with pain. The Soul of Freedom, at bay with
Death, cries out to save Liberty for the race of men.
It is your Liberty, your nation's freedom, your child
ren's birthright, that is fighting for life.
. All that life holds for you as an American is at stake
in this war, and you MUST fight for it to the utmost
l.i1 tsof your power.
We cannot all be in the trenches, but every one of
us can---and MU3T---sustain those who are.
Not as an act of mercy, but as an act of war---as a
Soldier of the Nation---help the Red Cross heal, support,
cheer our Soldiers and Sailors of Liberty that they may
fight the sooner, the harder, the longer in this Holy War.
Give to the Red Cross every dollar, every cent that
you possibly can---give till your heart says stop.
Every Cent of Every ollar Received for the Red Cross War Fund Goes for War Relief
