The vanguard of the Community

ing at the Willard Hotel tomorrow
at 12:30 pm. with 210 social, civic
and business leaders ready to review
the early results of their pre-cam

The Advance Gifts Unit, with a
personnel several times larger than
similar committees in previous years,
is soliciting gifts from the large con
tributors in the Metropolitan, Sub
urban and Group Solicitation Units.
The Government Unit has its own
advance gifts program, which has
also been expanded.
Expressing confidence that his
unit could expect increased giving
on the part of large-income residents
this year, Thomas P. Morgan, jr.,
Advance Gifts chairman, declared
yesterday:
“The trouble in Europe has
brought to many a keener apprecia
tion of the privileges and advantages
they enjoy on the home front and,
as one worker expressed it, only
the most hardened, self-centered in
dividuals are likely to close their
eyes to the welfare of our needy
neighbors and the community as a
whole.”

Larry, 'Be Thankful Baby,'
Starts Work for Chest
Campaign Booklet
Will Be Distributed
Tomorrow for Drive
Larry, the Community Chest’s
"Be Thankful" baby, will start his
journey into thousands of Washing
ton homes tomorrow on the front
cover of the campaign booklet dis
tributed for the Chest’s 12th annual
drive.
Included in the booklet are some
50 photographs of Washington's un
derprivileged who have been helped
during the past year by Chest
agencies; a complete list of member
agencies with the budget provided
for each, provided the $2,000,000 goal
is achieved; Instruction in the
method of designating gifts and a
suggested scale of giving according
to income.
Above the cover picture of 1%
year-old Larry, a Chest benefited
baby, is the Chest’s 1939 slogan,
"Give and Be Thankful You Can.”
Follows Positive Theme.
"A positive theme of fine service
well done has been followed in
making our campaign leaflet a pic
ture record of living people right
here in Washington,” said Herbert
L. Willett, jr„ Director of the Chest.
“We consider Washington’s 12th
annual campaign booklet unique in
that it is a genuine human docu
ment of welfare services locally
given and received, rather than a
prettified synthetic product manu
factured from ‘staged’ material.
"The babies photographed are
Washington babies whose health j
and lives were safeguarded through
services of the numerous Chest
agencies concerned with their wel
fare.
All Average Youngsters.
"The children, from nursery
school up through high school age,
are happy average youngsters, even
as yours and mine, who found in
some Chest-supported agency the
guidance, protection, opportunity
and fun they were seeking.’’
Mr. Willett pointed out that only
a few of the services represented
by the 67 Chest agencies now ad
mitted to membership could be pic
tured, because there are 56 member
agencies in Washington alone, 11
member agencies in the suburbs, 8
branches of agencies, 8 hospitals in
Washington and 3 hospitals and
clinics in the suburbs from which
service is purchased.
He urged Washingtonians to get
a first-hand view of Chest services
by taking advantage of the “Go

and-See” tours to member agencies.
The late afternoon and evening
hours for visiting, he said, had
been scheduled so that office work
ers, teachers and others could Join
the tours.

Drive Seeks $10,000
To Aid Destitute
Civilians in China
Rev. Charles Enders
Appointed Chairman
Of Local Committee
A campaign for $10,000 for relief
of destitute civilians in China was
launched today in Washington by
a local committee co-operating with
the national Church Committee for
China Relief.
The Rev. Charles Enders, min
ister of the Concordia Lutheran
Evangelical Church, Twentieth and
O streets N.W., has been appointed
chairman of the Washington Church
Committee for China Relief, and Dr.
E. L. Ford, assistant pastor of Foun
dry Methodist Church, is secretary.
The Washington Federation of
Churches has given its "hearty in
dorsement” to the project, accord
ing to Dr. W. L. Darby, secretary
of the federation.
Part of Nation-Wide Move.
The campaign is part of the Na
tion-wide movement to raise at least
$1,000,000 for the purpose.
Explaining that in 1936 and 1937.
the Chinese people sent $200,000 to
America to relieve flood victims in
the Ohio and Mississippi River Val
leys, the Rev. Mr. Enders asked
"the Christian people of America
to open their hearts now to China’s
immeasurable needs.”
The Church Commltte for China
Relief, organized by three national
Christian agencies, is headed by
Fred Atkins Moore, director, with
offices in New York. The local cam
paign will be under direction of Or
ton S. Clark, field representatives
for this area, with offices in Phila
delphia.
The three national constituting
bodies of the committee are the
Federal Council of Churches of
Christ in America, the Foreign Mis
sions Conference of North America
and China Famine Relief, United
States of America. Inc.
Sibley Heads Committee.
Officers and directors of the com
mittee are Harper Sibley of Roches
ter, N. Y., chairman; Dr. John R.
Mott, vice chairman; James M.
Speers, treasurer; Mr. Moore, direc
tor, and Mrs. Charles Kirkland Roys,
associate director.
Appeals will be made through the
churches of Washington at various
services throughout this week for
support of the cause,
"One dollar a month will save and
restore a life in China,” the com
mittee states.
