TO CHKtSTMAS AFFEAl Churches all over the state are making prompt response to the - Christmas ap peal of ex-Governor Marcus. H. Holcomb, honorary state chairman of the Near East relief, in behalf of the 115,000 orpnan boys and girls under. American protec tion in the Able lands. Scarcely bad the last of the thousands of letters embody- Jng Governor Holcombs appeal been mailed from .state headmiarters. at Hartr ford, when the contributions : began to pour in. Most of the contributions are small, however, and the total of all re ceived is not large. Special collections are to be taken ror the cause in many churches and Sunday schools throughout Connecticut.. In ad dition to these, Christmas pageants are to bo given in many places, and in these the tragic story of the destitute children, made homeless by the upheaval in Asia Minor, who can remain safe from . peril only as continued support is afforded from America, is to .be told by charac ters representing the Armenian children and their fellow sufferers, five: dollars is sufficient to care for. a child for a month; and 360 isjpnough to provide for ljis care for a year. . . Everything possible is being done to relieve the suffering of the orphan chil dren as the severe winter weather sets in, according to information received indi rectly from the Near East by State Di rector E. H. McDonough. Were it not for the recent massacres, by the Turks, which added to the thousands of parent less and homeless children, a the Near East Relief expected to be able to protect all the orphans, but the numbers of the destitute have been multiplied by the most recent Turkish outrages and it is , with difficulty that enough . accommodations are being found. Many different Christian agencies are co-operating in the humanitarian task of saving the children. The. last cable from abroad brought the news that the monas teries of Mt. Athos In Greece have been khrawn open to receive 3,000 shelterless youngsters. Not any feminine, creature, not. a cow, -not a mare, not even a hen, may set foot on the sacred land of these monasteries. But this strictest of mon astic settlements has offered to take in. orphans. "They, must be boys -only, the cood monks hasten to tdd. ! "No wo men can be received.": American relief wurkers are responsible for their admis sion to the monasteries. The Near East Relief, which is caring tor them, appeal ed to the ecclesiastical council of Mr, Athos for accommodations, and was at CWHT Shall I Give?
