Drive Half Over, Re?
ports Indicate 100 P. C.
Increase by February 1
Bronx Legionnaires Help
Post That Incurred a
$750 Theatrical Show
Deficit With a Loan
While no definite figures have been I
published by the State Membership !
Committee on the number of new nem- I
(,ers enrolled by the Legion since its i
drive began, January 1, individual re- i
ports by posts indicate that Depart- j
ment Commander Charles G. Blakeslee I
was not over-optimistic when be pre- j
dieted a membership of 150,000 for
1921. as against 75,000 in 1920.
William F. Deegan, chairman of
Bronx County, has heard from several
posts in that borough who already re?
port marked increases with half the
csnpn-ign stiil to go. The percentage
of gains in these instances are as fol?
lows:
Brvant, 25 per cent; Hennessy, 25
per cent; Melrose, 20 per cent; Viens,
15 per cent; Arthur Boyce. 15 per cent;
United Service, 10 per cent; Gentle, 10
per cent; Heckman, 6 per cent; Hor
wey, 5 per cent; Jacgle, 5 per cent;
G. P. P-ya"i ? Per cent; Allen. 3 per
cent; Diihibender, 3 per cent; Bender,
2 per cunt.
It is expected that all the other
posts in the Bronx have gained In pro?
portion to the above and that when the
dri*-? is ended it will be found that
Bronx County has gone over the top
with more than 100 per cent.
From upstate there come reports of
similar progress and it appears now
as though Now York State will lead
the nation at the time of the next na?
tional convention.
Bronxites Stick Together
For a demonstration of loyalty the
meeting last Wednesday night of the
Bronx County Committee was a strik?
ing example.
One of the posts of that borough,
through an ..-fortunate contract with
a theatrical producer, became involved
financially -and was facrd with a deficit
of $750. An appeal to the delegates
brought an immediate response, the
money was advanced and the post in
question will be given time to repay
the debt.
There was no debating the request
of the post that it be helped out of its
difficulty. The only question consid?
ered was that of how aid should be
extended and it was decided quickly
that a loan was the most advisable
method.
New York Welfare Fund
Pursuant to a resolution by the New
York County committee authorizing
the appointment of a committee of five
to formulate plans for the raising of a
welfare fund, a sub-committee of three
has been named by Chairman Buxton
to draw up a proposed plan. Francis
L. Bobbins jr., Archibald Thatcher and
Elliot Bacon are the members.
This committee's report will be acted
upon at the next meeting of the county
committee. In the mean time any con?
tributions to the welfare fund will be
received bv James M. Blackwell, at 63

Archie Roosevelt
Returns Home on
Steamship France
Vessel Arrives a Day Late,
Due to Severe Head Gales;
Newspaper Writer Tells of
Conditions in Rumania
The French liner France, which was
expected from Havre on Saturday, ar?
rived yesterday, landing her passen?
gers shortly before sunset.
According to her master, Captain R.
. Maurraa, the vessel encountered heavy
? neas and stiff westerly gales soon after
I clearing the French coast, and this sort
I of weather prevailed throughout the
run to port. Occasionally the weather ,
moderated, be said, but only for a. few |
hours. The skipper said he expected |
to be about forty-eight hours behind
schedule, but that the vessel behaved
splendidly and made much better time I
than the weather conditions would war- j
rant.
Among the saloon passengers was
Archibald B. P.ooseve?t, son of the late
Colonel Roosevelt, who had been to
France on business for the Sinclair Oil
Company, with whom he is associated.
While abroad he conducted negotiations
whereby 'his corporation took over the
business of a French oil company which
distributes a large part of the oil ship?
ments throughout France. The French
people, he saidt are anxious to take ail
the oil that can be supplied to them,
and the French market is only limited
by the available supply. Business con?
ditions in France, according to Mr.
I Roosevelt, are improving rapidly.
Another traveler was Nicholas J. *R.
Sossidi, a newspaper writer, who had
been on a trip to Rumania. He said
that the Rumanians were able to cope
with the Bolshevikiand the world need*J|
have no fear of the country falling into
the hands of the disciples of L?nine.
He said Rumania's great need just
now was locomotives. She has only
250 in operation, and needed at least
3,000 for the complete operation de?
manded by her rail mileage.
Among others* on the France were
Captain and Mrs. George G. McMurtry
jr., Miss Anno Farr, Miss Ann Nicoll,
Henri de Magnin and E. L. Wirz.

THE SADDEST THING
I? the World
GROWN people who have enjoyed
their share of the world's delights
are supposed to bear with some degree
of fortitude the hardship, sorrow and
illness which are bound to come to them,
intermittently. But the saddest thing
in the world is the child who has never
tasted the joys of life, yet must be bent
under life's hardships and shriveled
before life's starvation. To such a child
our sympathies must gush forth in a
i torrent strong enough to lift him to the
crest and bear him safely to shelter and
happiness.
Consider the Multitudes
There are 3,500,000 just such children in
Central and Eastern Europe to-day. They
are the saddest things in the world! Their
best friend is an American?Herbert Hoover.
Mr. Hoover knows perhaps better than any one man
in the world the close association between proper
feeding and proper living. In addition to this
knowledge, Mr. Hoover has an overwhelming under?
standing and love of children. Therefore the work
of feeding the millions of starving children could not
be in better hands. But what a job for one pair of
hands! There is a crying need for thousands of
pairs of hands, and heads and hearts. There is a
need for yours.
Mr. Hoover and Rotary
On Thursday next Mr. Hoover is going to speak
at the luncheon of the New York Rotary Club at
Hotel McAlpin. He will find a ready response from
all Rotarians. The International Association of
Rotary Clubs arid the Rotary Club of New York are
heartily in sympathy with Mr. Hoover's great work
and will continue to do all that lies in their power
to bring it to an even greater success than it has
enjoyed.
But Rotary is anxious to do more than that. It
desires to enlist the sympathies and co-operation of
all readers of the Rotary Page, so that they, too, may
pass the plea along and add link after link in the
chain of mercy. When a man or woman stops to
? consider that one less dinner party, or theatre party,
will keep a child alive and well until next harvest
time, surely the sacrifice is not too great to ask. A
check for ten dollars is one child's lifeline!
Think Again
If, before this time, you have refused a request to
contribute to Mr. Hoover's great work?which is
really America's work?will you not think again?
And this time, favorably.
Next Issue Herald, Jan. 2), 1921.
