MeXaughton, executive sec retary for the Armenion and Syrian relief committee in this district, out lined some of the plans and reasons for the campaign. The Arizona drive will be a part of the national cam paign for the fund January 12 to 17, when the national committee will at tempt to obtain thirty million dollars for the cause. ' Prefacing his talk with the state ment that President Wilson had made a proclamation in regard to the cam paign, and had heartily endorsed it, as had the governments of Great Britain and France, Dr. McNaughtoa declared that no war cause was more important than that of furnishing re lief to the starving thousands of Chris tian Armenians and Syrians, who are now threatened with extinction un less the civilized world, and especially America, comes to their aid. Dr. MeXaughton began his informal address by telling of the work the na tional committer or Armenian and Syrian relief haone. The committee has in reality been doing Red Cross work among the Christian anw Jewish people of Asia Minor, he said, and has been co-operated with the Red Cross. The work however, has been too big to beadded to that tof the larger or ganisation, and as a result the two organizations are working separately but with hearty approval of each other. The United States has already given thirteen million dollars for relief in Rrmenia and Syria, and its demand for thirty million will carry over for the year. Among members of the national relief committee, it is worth noting, are such men as former-president W. H. Taft, Charles E. Hushes, Xathan Strauss, Cardinal Gibbons, Rabbi Wise. J. R. Mott, Charles Crane former Ambassador Morgenthau and former Ambassador Elkus, the two latter who played large parts in the work during their appointments to Turkey. "We owe more to the peoples now being crushed beneath the Turkish heel than to all uther peoples of the earth combined,'' said Dr. McXaighton. "All that is of value in our civilization comes from them; had its beginning with them. We owe the Bible to the Christian peoples of Asia Minor, f.nd no movement starts to lift up civilization that is not based on the Bible. Our philosophy and our ethics, our art. had their beginnings in the near East. "I tell you, if we eliminate from our nation those sources of which I speak, there will be no America on the map. ".Now the descendents of those peo ple are stricken, are calling to us. for help. Thr-ir's is the most important cause of all."

The "some time" of home building for See the ACTUAL PHOTOGRAPHS of GTalBey 1204 stricken peoples of the East was held ouf by Dr. MeXaughton. The Armen ians and Syrians with their kindred Christian and Jewish races in" Asia Minor are the only democratic peoples of their countries. Long crushed be neath autocratic rule, they still cling to their democratic ideals, and repre sent the only democratic medium in the midst of an autocracy. The war, said Dr. MeXaughton. Is not a war of physical force, but a war for ideals, and the only victory wortV having is that of the sphere of ideals. The war for democracy will not be won until democracy is given to . the world. "And how," he asked his hear ers, "Can democracy be spread to the autocratic countries we have "been fighting if we permit our only medium of democracy inthose countries to per ish'.'" The Armenians and Syrians are the only democratic elements in the east, including Russia; for, Dr. Me Xaughton declared, the Bolsheviki are as bitter against democracy as is autocracy. Dr. MeXaughton also told his audi ence, which on account of the rain was not as large as had been expected, a few first-hand stories of the suffer ing and trials the, Armenians have endured to retain their faith. Dr Me Xaughton is a forceful, interesting speaker, and as he related some of the things the people of Asia Minor have been subject to his hearers were much affected. The Armenian and Syrian atrocities, said Dr. MeXaughton, take three forms: Massacre, torture and deporta tion. Of the three, the massacres are the most merciful, for to the stricken peoples death comes as a deliverer of souls from bodies, and from suffering almost impossible to endure. The speaker then told of a massacre typical of the many to which the Ar menians have been subjected in their existence. Several hundred Armenian boys and men, students at an American mossionary college in northern Ar menia, were one day removed from the school forcibly, over the protests of the Americans in charge, and taken a few miles away out on the plains by Turkish troops. The students knew what was coming, and so used to the massacres had they become that no resistance was offered. But as they were surrounded by Turks armed with clubs and axes one young man stepped up to the Turkish commander and asked 'that they be permitted to sing a song before they were slaughtered. The permission was granted. Then, with death a few minutes away, the Christians sang "Nearer My God to Thee." As soon as they hau finished they were clubbed to death. That was one example of what the Armenians have endured. Dr. MeXaughton also told of how the girls at the same college watched from- their buildings while the surroundm-' villages, where their homes and rela tives were, were burned, and when the term closed 63 of them were homeless. One day they were also forcibly re moved under American protest, given an opportunity to embrace the Mo hammedan religion, and taken away. They disappeared, to become the in mates of Turkish harems and suffer horrors worse than death. But that, said the speaker, is the usual lot of Armenian women when a massacre is conducted, and the fates they suffer will never become known. Eut not on-' has been known to abandon Chris tianity to avoid the most horrible fate the unspeakable Turk can devise. The speaker also told of an Armenian professor in the American college at Harpoot, the largest American institu tion on foreign soil, who was thrown into prison when he refused to sign a document, confessing treason. He was tortured hy navmg his nails ana hair torn out, by being hung suspended by the wrists and by being beaten almost to death. Between tortures he was tent in a foul cell and given only black SUGGESTIONS ABOUT BUILDING. -sw bv- -mm- sbs -m' . a Planry" Homes Illustrated Editor, Republican.

But he never signed the document, and wis finally released. Four other Armenian teachers in the college suffered the same fate. These false confessions, the speaker explained, were being sought to justify the treatment of the Armenians by the Turks as a war necessity, when the United States was making inquiries about them Tales of Armenian deportations were also told by Dr. MeXaughton. Whole settuements have been driven from their homes, across the deserts and scittered among Turk villages, while along the way the weaker sink down bodies in 23 miles have been counted along the road of a deported band, he stated. A most touching part of the address was that telling of how "a band of starving Armenians who had bee:: driven down near the Rivr Jordan sent a delegation to appeal fi r aid to the relief committee in Jerusalem. The committee found it could not' give either money or food, such was its posi tion, without entailing a loss that would mean death to refugees then be ing taken care of. The band of Ar menians was practically sentenced to death by its refusal of aid, which was the only nossible thing to do. With the refusal the committee sent an an swer saying: "Be ye faithful unto death and I shall give yon eternal life." After he had finished telling of the Armenian's suffering and urgent need for help, Dr. MeXaughton closed with the forceful word: "What shall we do about it? The answer is in your hands." After the ' meeting Dr. Xaughton, with J. O. Sexson and other members of the temporary committee selected to consider the campaign hero when Dr. MeXaughton was in the city about two months ago. visited several leading citizens of Phoenix to prepare for the drive for the fund in this state, and to discuss the selection of a state chairman. The suggestion "has been made pre viously that the Syrian and Armenian fund drive be united with that for Jewish relief work in this state Jan uary 6 to 12, and after several con ferences indications are that this will be done. Xo definite announcement can be made at this time, however. Dr. MeXaughton and Mr. Kexon left last night for Tucson, where several other leading men of the state will be seen in regard to uniting the two cam paigns. It is probable that a favorable decision will be reached, and the Ar menian and Syrian relief fund drive held jointly with the .Jewish relief fund drive, beginning January 6. The question will be settled today. Ari zona's quota on the Jewish drive is $75,000, and for the Armenian fund it will probably be about $60,000.

Scattering returns received up to noon today at j national headquarters showed an en rollment of 13,000,000 persons in the Christmas Roll Call of the American Red Cross. This represented reports from 40 per cent of the chapters in 12 divisions, with no reports from any chapters in one division. When the campaign ends at midnight tomorrow night, Red Cross officials believe that the total enrollment will equal the 22,000,000 of last year. The roll call has been handicapped by in fluenza and bad.weather in many parts of the country, and the final day, to morrow, will be devoted to rounding up all persons who are not wearing the 1919 Red Cross button. The central division, Michigan, Illi nois, Iowa, Wisconsin and Nebraska, was still in the lead today, with ap proximately 4.000,000 enrollments. .The. Atlantic division, Xew York, Xew Jersey and Connecticut, retained second place, with close to 3.000,000 members.
