Oh, you would take him in, and you would take in every other mother's brave son, and give him the fullest of your tender, loving care. BUT THINE! Our army is not going to fight on our soil. We are sending our troops to foreign lands to forestall an invasion of our sacred territory to protect our homes. OUR DOORS CANNOT BE OPENED TO OUR WOUNDED AND CRIPPLED. We are unable to relieve the suffering of 4ur sons, we are powerless to provide life-saving surgical attention, EXCEPT THROUGH ONE AGENCY THE AMERICAN RED CROSS. What the Red Cross Does The American Red Cross literally takes the comforts of home to wounded and helpless American fighters. It provides an injured man with first aid treatment. It gives him the best possible surgical aid. It provides him with tender care during his convalescence. It means torn and shattered bodies made whole, lives saved. But the Red Cross means even more than this. It means a fight Against the diseases so prevalent in the trenches. It means a bettering of living conditions at the front. How aptly has the Red Cross been termed "The Big Sister of Our Fighting Men." Our first fighters are already at the front with General Pershing. Even now American soldiers may be in. need of your aid They cannot' call to you from your door-step, but the Red Cross calls to you for them calls from the door-sill of your heart. Throw Open the Door! What Will You Do? Will you contribute to the care of our wounded and helpless, through the Red Cross? Will you throw open the door of your heart, just the same as you would throw open the door of your home, if a bleeding soldier came to your door-step? Open your heart!

Honolulu Pledges $120,000 Honolulu has pledged $120,000 or more to the $100,000,000 needed by the Red Cross to further its splendid work. This money must be pledged immediately. Honolulu oversubscribed her Liberty Loan quota. Honolulu may be justly proud of this record.

It is your privilege and your honor to answer it loyally, unhesitatingly like the true patriotic Americans you are! Pledge your dollars! You can pay your whole contribution at once, or divide it into four quarters, making one payment a month for four months. At the left is a pledge-blank. Fill it in and mail to Alfred L.
