NOVELIST REQUESTS
: HELP EMM
Personal Appeal for Women
i and Children of Tortured
f Nation.
Seconding Gen. Iconard Wood's
lionten sacrifice appeal for Armenia,
Mrs. Mary Roberts Rinehart, America's
popular woman novelist, is
making the following personal appeal
to the women of this country to
come to the rescue of this oppressed
People of the near east:
"In behalf of the women and little
children of the most nersecuted and
tortured nation in the history of
the world. I appeal to the people
of America to respond to the Lenten
Sacrifice appeal made by the Near
Kast Relief for the savins of Armenia.
The Armenians are without
food, without clothins and without
shelter. Pressed in by enemies on
all sides, they stand deserted of all
the world, save America.
"At this Lenten season, when the
thoushts of all the world turn to
the sreat sacrifice made 2.000 years
ago on Calvary, the appeal of these
people, who have faced exile and
massacre, starvation and cold only
because of their persistent and undying
loyalty to the Christian faith,
is too poignant to go unheeded.
There, in the very land where Christ
gave his life for mankind, these men
and women and little children are
Riving theirs for Him. Can we. in J
our turn, fail to make the very j
slight sacrifice required of us to save ;
them from perishing?"
Mary Garden also wired her cneoa i
and indorsement of the Easter of- I
fering.
Mrs. Thomas G. Winter, national
president of the Federation of Women's
Clubs, says: "It would be irony
for the General Federation of Women's
Clubs to continue its program
for 'the womanhood of the world.'
while our sisters of the orient are
left to perish beause there is no one
to extend a helping hand. Will
America awake to her privilege and
' duty?"
Col. Theodore Roosevelt, Coleman
du Pont, Henry Van Dyke. Samuel
Gompers and David Belasco are
others uniting in this appeal.
Gifts, large or small, may be sent
to John B. Larner. treasurer, 308
Bond building.
PRESIDENT IN APPEAL
FOR ARMENIAN RELIEF
"Tenfold Dividends in Doing Humane
Thing for Deserving
People," He Says.
President Harding yesterday issued
the following appeal for the Near East
Relief:
"No matter what the political situation
may be. there ought to be no cessation
of our sympathetic efforts to be
of service to the stricken Armenian people.
It has seemed to me that all we
have done has borne dividends tenfold
In the consciousness that we have done
a humane thing for a people well deserving
our generous gifts. The great relief
movement must be pushed!"
Mrs. Cabot Stevens has received 800
coupon books, representing 800 Armenian.
Syrian. Greek and Jewish orphans
apportioned to Washington. These
children must be turned out of the Near
Kast' Relief orphanages to starve April
15th, unless Washington buys these 800
books at_260 each?60 coupons, at $1 a
, coupon, are in each book, Mrs. Stephens
stated.
"This fund is an 'emergency fund' and
does not represent what Washington
should do to assist in maintainiiM; the
sixty-three hospitals, thousands or soup
kitchens, industrial plants and tha general
recontruction mk assigned to the
Near Kast Relief fay special act of Congress,"
She safd.
Washington's committee requests
gifts, large or small, be sent to John B.
Lamer, treasurer. 308 Bond building.

Children From Disregarding
Regulations.
Calling attention to dangers ensuing
from disregard of lire and sanl-11
tation regulations by public school
ct^ldren. the Eastern Conference of
"ntacbgrs at its closing session yesterday
recommended the organization
la this city and elsewhere of teachers'
committees to supplement the
work of the public health service and
Are inspectors.
It was pointed out that proper enforcement
of fire regulations is overlooked
in many instances, subjecting
' hundreds of children to serious fire
hazards. The need for proper health
regulations also was emphasized..
Participation of teachers in the determination
of school policies was
urged in another resolutiop. This
privilege should be afforded through
teachers' councils, faculty representation
on the boards of education or
through personnel committees composed
of teachers and members of the
school administrative group, it was
declared.
A campaign to promote trade union
colleges supported by teaching groups
was outlined. Special research will
be made to find text books adapted to
'adulta it was said.
