I - 5000 CHILDREN GIVE TREASURES : FOR POOR KIDDIES Santa Claus Storehouse at 608 Chestnut Street a Veritable Fairyland of "Wondrous Playthings. Mora than 000 children or Philadelphia tiara responded to tho appeal sent out by the l'onMo LEIiOEn Santa Cln.ua Club for donations of toys and nickels to give the poor kids of the city, with no pros peels of n Christmas celebration, a huge surprise on the morning of the 25th. Even the optimistic Santa Claus Iady In chaise of Kllsa Krlngle'a storehouse, at COS Chestnut street did not dream of such an avalanche Exactly two weeks ago an unoccupied ofllco was opened and two Ions boards placed In It. It was barren of decora tlons and devoid of cheerfulness. Today that name ofllco looks like a .veritable folryjand. It Is a. treasuro house filled brimful with myriads of wondrous toys and dollies and alt the things that kid dles dream about on Christmas eve when tho -time draws near for Santa to pull up to the chimney with his reindeer team. The two tables are no longer bare. In fact, they have been supplemented by three more, and on all of them thousands of contributions, flossy-haired dolt babies and wee animals, to say nothing of the mechanical toys, are fairly crowding each othor to tho edges for room, and It's all that the Santa Claus Lady and the sev eral assistants she has had to press Into ervlce can do to find space for those till coming. Lying In one corner of the room an important looking stack of bundles, not yet opened, gives promise of more sur prises for tho poor kiddles. More than a. thousand dollies alono-havo been sent in, together with a thousand Christmas stockings filled with toys and candles. In addition, there aro engines, trains, forts, soldiers, drums, games, books and s whole menagerie of lions, sheep, dogs and pussy cats living amicably on one table, awaiting distribution Christmas morning. Prom all over the city the churches are sending to the Santa Claus Lady lists of children In their pnrlnhcs whose Christmas will be only a hearsay affair, if somo one doesn't look after them, and so voluminous are the lists that Santa had to declaro against the reindeer method of transportation from the very begin ning. Starting very early in the morn ing of the 25th, 53 Punuc and Evening Lbdobr automobiles will whin away, here, there and everywhere, with a speed that will make Director Taylor's rapM transit plan seem snail-like, and before the day Is very far advanced, the good work will have been accomplished. ' WORST CHRISTMAS IN WORLD HISTORY, MINISTER SAYS The Bv. C. L. Oodell Declares Church Should Stop "War. "This Is the worst Christmas the world has ever seen," said the Rev, Dr. Charles L. dodell, pastqr of St. PaUT.s McthodUt Episcopal Church, addressing the Asso ciation of Methodist Ministers today at thcli Weekly meeting in Wesley Hall, 101? Arch street. "These ore bad doys for the church," he continued. "Blood Is flowing In tor rents and the Christian spirit seems to have been generally forgotten In Europe. Now Is the time for the church to rise up and dominate tho situation and bring about the cessation of this war. And the lead should be taken In the United States, for there is no country that could do It o well." Doctor Oodell denounced tho host of "armament howlers," declaring that peace could not be assured by force of arms. "Had it not been that Oermany was so well armed wo would not have a war at this time," he said. The Itev, Dr. Oodell said that, while some were opposed to "Billy" Sunday's methods in bringing people back to the church, he waa In favor of his work because he appealed to the people In the language that they can understand. "After he has brought converts to the churches," said the preacher, "it Is up to you ministers to develop the seed that he has sown."
