subscription column for the receipt
and acknowledgment of funds to he
sent lo tho Relief Council for theil
great work in the Near East, where
thousands of children are suffering

We have had calls innumerable ir

To start the list under the presen
call, The Courier subscribes $5.00 t<
the fund to help save tho lives of tin
helpless children of tile Near East.
Who will be next?
We have always thought that on
?f the most attractive modes of sav
ing-especially for the children am
those of us of small moans-is tin
government Thrift and Saving
Stamps. The chief, attraction tha
these stamps carry, as we seo it, ?
the incentivo to save small amount
that would otherwise be spent fool
Ashly, or at host for things that ar*
by no means essentials. For the nev
year we aro, therefore, inclined t.
commend most strongly tho govern
mont's endeavor to make persisten
sa'vings possible.
The new 1921 government sav
?ngs securities may now he had a
post offices and through hanks, li
all, live opportunities are Offered
For instance, there are the $1 Treas
itry Savings Stamps and the %2
re asa ry Savings Certificates. Thoa
ire in addition lo the regular sav
Migs securities which have been ol
forod by the Knited States Treasur
Department for several years. Th
25-conl Thrift Stamp and tho $
War Savings Stamp and the $10
and $ I (uni Treasury Savings Cortil!
.ates will bo issued as before.
The $1 Treasury Savings Slam
and tho 25-cont Thrift Stamp are no
interest-bearing. They are issued t
Siolp people save money in snial
amounts, and when enough of tho?
stamps have been bought, they ma
Vie exchanged, in proper ratio, for $
?Var Savings Stamps, which hear ir
?Unrest at tho rate of 4 per cont, com
pounded quarterly, if held until mn
.uri ty.
During January of tho present yoa
ttne $5 stamp may he had for $4.15
lt will increase in value ono cor
?each month. Tho January prico c
tho $25 Treasury Savings Certificat
will bo $20.60, tho prico incroasln

Certificates may bo bought during
January for $82.40. Its'monthly in
crease in valuo will bo 20 cents.
It is the hope of the United StatcB
Treasury, according to announce
ment from Washington, that tho 10 2 1
savings securities will bo bought by
oven moro Investors than took ad
vantage of recent and current offer
ings. The $1 issue will be especially
for school children, and it is hoped
that it will be bought In large quan

Mr. and Mrs. Watkins have the

Vast Relief Effort Launched by
Eight Leading American Organ
izations to Avert Tragedy.
The most spontaneous as well as the
largest consolidation of offort In the
history of American relief and charita
ble organizations has grown out of tho
disaster which threatens 3,000,000
European children this winter. To tb?
headquarters of every agency that, dis
penses American mercy overseas has
come one steady cry for months peet;
the children, most helpless and blame
lees sufferers In the truck of war, will
perish by the thousands before next
harvest unless America saves thom!
When Dr. Livingston Farrand, chair
man of the Central Commlttoe of the
American Red Cross, returned from a
recent trip abroad, his report throbbed
with the need of the children. From
the feeding-stations of the American
Relief Administration throughout east
ern and contra! Europo came letters,
cables, pleas of every sort. The Pro
testant churches sent investigators
Into after-war conditions and every
report breathed the Impending tragedy
of starving and diseased children.

child Ufo of Europo ls threatened with
heartrending misery.
The European Relief Council, with
Herbert Hoover as chairman and the
Whole power of American charitable

It is the purpose of the Council to

co-operating agencies Witt be formed
to secure the vitally necessary fonds.
Of the amount sought, 118,000,000 wilt
be used for basic food. For every one
of these American dollars the local
governments and communities sided
will furnish two dollars, in the form
of transportation, labor, guarda, cleri

No children receive th? free food ex
