1 THREE PRESIDENTS I
ASK AID FOR CHINA
s Harding, Wilson and Taft Appeal
to Americans to Help Stricken
Millions of Sister Republic.
t The President and two ex-Preaidenta
of the United States have Joined, for
•y the first lime In the history of the
d country, In an appeal for a phllan
v I h topic enterprise. President Hardin*,
j. ex-Presldont Wilson and ez-President
„ Taft are all In the forefront of the
, t . movement to send aid from America to
the famine victims of China.
„ °o of President Hardin*’* first offl
. claJ scta after Ms -InmiCTirsfton, fallen
" when he had been In the White Honae
less than-two weeks, was to renew the
■ appeal made by his predecessor in be
hslf of America's sister repubUc In the
East. President Hardin* said In part:
“At this, the earliest practicable mo
-i ment In my administration, I desire to
add my own to the many appeals
which have been Issued heretofore In
behalf of the starving people of a large
I section of China. • • •
a “The picture of China's distress Is
I so tragic that I sm moved, therefore,
to renew the appeal heretofore mads
and to express the hope that the Amer
ican people will continue to contribute
to this humanitarian cause ns genet
I ously as they possibly can.”
In nppo'ntlng the American commlt-
Ij tee for China Famine Fund, with Ms
H own Immediate predecessor In the
White House, ex-Prealdent Taft, as
one of the members, and Thornes W.
lemont of Vow York, as chairman,
I‘r*-Ment Wilson said In his procla
mation;
“Not only In the name of humanity,
hot In that of the friendliness which
we feel for a great people In distress.
I venture to ask that our cltlsena shall,
even though the task of giving is not
today a light one. respond as they can
to this distant but appealing cry for
help.”

Saks Clothes are superior, I
