NO. 269 T HARDING'S RED CROSS PROCLAMATION SPECIAL SESSION NOVEMBER 2DTH Tl I TRY 10 MAKE FULL E REP A AV ALLIES INFORM ABA G0VERI1EIIT JK IT MUST GET OFF Ottomans Most fa'o Back Four Years and Comply Yiilh Terms of Mndros Agreement PRESIDEN DAY 1 iiahroy MARGINS Washington, Nov. 10, ( Associated pres3). President Harding in a proc laamtion issued today calling atten tion to the annual membership roll call of the American Red Cross, which begins tomorrow, declared "there are peculiarly urgent reasons to appeal this year in behalf of an even greater generosity than has been necessary in some other times." Notable among those reasons the president mentions the situation in the Near East where he asserts mil lions of people must look to more fav ored national communities such as the United States for the mean3 of life. He bespeaks the aid of the American people for the Red Cross as one of the chief relieg agencies and the co operation of Americans in the sup port of all the organizations at work in that portion of the world. The proclamation follows: "To the American People: "The assurance, based on many years' experience, that there will bo prompt and generous response, makes it always a satisfaction to direct pub lic attention to the annual member ship roll call of the American Red Cross. This year it will open on Arm istice Day, November 11, and close on Thanksgiving Day, November 30. As president of the United States and also president of the American Red Cross, I hereby proclaim November 12 as Red Cross Sunday, and invite all the people to unite with their spiritual leaders in such observance of it as may promote a renewed consecration to the gospel of service based upon divine injunction and sanctioned by all good conscience. "By the terms of the congressional charter which called it into being, the American Red Cross is charged with certain clearly defined duties and obli gations. These it has continued, dur ing the past year, to discharge faith fully, and efficiently. There are pecu liarly urgent reasons to appeal, this year, in behalf of an even greater generosity than has been necessary in some other times, because of the ex traordinary demands upon such serv ices of mercy and humanity. One of the most fearful disasters of all his tory has befallen the ill-fated Near Eastern area, where the lives of mill ions of unfortunate people even now depend, and must continue for a long time to depend, on the untiring liber ality of more favored communities. A very great sum is required to be rais ed if the emergency shall be met; and while the task is one to which all well disposed peoples must contribute, our own country in virtue alike of its in spirations of humanity and its fortu nate endowment in material posses sions, must be conspicuous for both the great share it shall give, and the high spirit animating the gift. It is there fore asked that co-operation be es tablished between the Red Cross, the Near East relief and all other agen cies which are concerned to assist in dealing with this crisis. "In the domestic field, demands continue to press heavily upon the Red Cross. The government is earn estly seeking to insure to every dis eased, or disabled ex-service man the full measure of care and help which national gratitude and simple justice dictate. The aim must be to restore every serviee man to the best possible health and the largest opportunity for a norma land self-supporting life. In this effort the government, the army and navy, have gladly availed them selves of the assistance of the Red Cross which, due to its nation-wide volunteer organization, has been a constant and valued aid. "In the broad field concerned with the physical welfare of the people, the Red Cross, in sympathetic contact with other organizations, and the federal and state bureaus, has been particularly active in the establish ment and support of public health ac tivities for the prevention of disease and the encouragement of sound san :aAAAj itation. In its peculiar and historic field of disaster relief, the Red Cross has met the emergencies brought about by the large number of floods and other calamities during the past year, and is still called upon to aid the suffering in foreign lands due to war and pestilence. For these reasons, regardless of the multitude of local problems in every community, the American Red Cross deserves well at the hands of the American people. "In the interests of our common hu manity and of the service which we owe to our fellow men, I invite my fellow citizens to renew their allegi ance to the American Red Cross dur ing the period of the membership roll call.

HOSTILITIES WILL BE HOT The Wildcats became incensed at the opinion the Ocala public expressed of them after seeing the game last week. The people who saw the game thought that the Wildcats were tamed. As a result of this sentiment the Cats have acquired a determination to be as wild as wild can be and Coach Blitch reports that the practice of the past week has been the hardest and most enthusiastic of the season. In an attempt to stop the onslaught of his wild backfield, Coach Blitch himself has a face that resembles a well-chewed piece of rare beef. He says the boys are hot stuff and that DeLand will meet its Waterloo on Armistice Day when the team from that city will face the Wildcats at Hunter Park: The cage has not been built nor the chain forged that will hold the wild Wildcats when they go on the field for this game. They are determined to win and win they will or leave the field on stretchers. This is the spirit that the public likes and missed last week. A large crowd is expected this week to witness the slaughter and the crowd is feeling confident that the Wildcats will have charge of the slaughter pen. A charge of 50 cents is going to be made Saturday for car space and the crowd will be kept back from in front of the cars. Admission will be 50c. and the game will start at 3:30. The Wildcats' line-up will be as fol ic ws: Borland, left end; L. Troxler, left tackle; Leak, left guard; Steph ens, center; Lummus, right guard; J. Troxler, right tackle; Robertson. right end; Daniels, quarterback: Moses, left halfback; Lewis, right halfback; Ferguson, fullback. MRS. DAVIS HAS BEEN AWARDED THE MONEY Fort Lauderdale, Nov. 10.

Lenin is reported to have said, "Our Communists are often mighty fine theorists, but they are no good as far as practical labor is concerned. Our worst enemy nowadays is the Communist orator, who is put in high positions. We must do away with agitators and propagandists, who know how to break down, but who are unable to put something else in the place. These people are a hindrance to the proletariat."

ORPHANS HOME HAS COJ1E OF AGE On November 2, 1922, the Children's Home Society of Florida Complet-. ed Twenty-One Years Of Service Exactly 9445 children have received the aid, care and attention of the Home Society during this twenty year period of service. Of this num ber hundreds have been placed out in carefully selected family homes in all parts of the 'state for permanent care and legal adoption, hundreds of others have been given hospital care, dental care, special operations, medical care, etc. Scores of crippled children have had limbs and army and eyes and ears restored to normal use. Scores of older boys and girls have been sent to special training schools, business col leges, etc., where they have been given special education, taught trades, have become teachers, stenographers, etc Hundreds of others have been kept with or for widowed -mothers and fathers who were widowers, so that homes and families could be kept In tact and not destroyed and scattered. In every case the society has endeav ored to render just the particular aid that each child would need. No child that could possibly be cared for by the society even children who were ter ribly crippled and afflicted has ever been refused. Hundreds are now grown to useful manhood and woman hood, and many are holding positions of honor, and have homes and children of their own. Great Economy to Entire State While it has cost considerable mon ey each year to care for these children, and to save them from poverty, dis ease, vice, crime, homelessness, de sertion and worthlessness, the Home Society undoubtedly has saved count less thousands of dollars to the state of Florida, its cities and counties, and to the tax payers of Florida, for if these children had not been rescued and given a fair chance in life, hun dreds of them would have grown up in ignorance, vice, sin, crime and disease, and would have filled our jails, prisons, insane hospitals and become a charge upon the public, and a nuisance to the whole state. Work Started Nov. 2, 1902 Rev. D. W. Comstock, a retired Con gregational Preacher of Chicago, started the work twenty years ago, and was succeeded at his death three years later by his neice, Mrs. Cora Hawley Seaton, who served for over seven years, and these two workers with the aid of such men as Senator Duncan U. Fletcher, Judge W. H. Baker, A. F. Perry and others who were charter members of the Society, did the hard pioneer work in building the foundation for what has proved to be a God-send to the whole state. Marvelous Growth in Twenty Years From a small beginning with only thirty-four children placed out in MAMA J good homes, the first year, the work has grown until last year Thirteen Hundred and Forty Six children were cared for from every section of the state, and already so far thiff year 1225 little ones have received its aid and care. Contributions Hare Increased Greatly During the first year, only $870 was raised, to do the work. Tea years ago this amount had hyreased to over $4,000 income for the year, while last year the total receipt were over $130,000. The number of con tributions has increased from aboui fifty persons the first year to over 15,000 contributors last year, repre senting 50,000 men, women and child ren. 4 All Funds Raised by Mail The funds of the Society are secur ed entirely by direct letter of anneaL through the press, schools, etc- at th least cost of any children's agency in tne united States. No solicitors of any kind are employed by the Societv. which means a great savings in ex pense and, makes the record of in creast in income the more remark. able. Society Owns Property Valued at $100,000 Not even owninjr a typewritinc- ma chine, or any office twenty years aco. the society has prospered until to day its property in Jacksonville, Pen- ; sacola and elsewhere, is valued at over $100,000. Most of this property has been paid for directly by the members of the Board of Directors, the Ladies Auxiliary, and through a f ew bepuests , tnrougn the twenty years. The So ciety now has a Receiving Home Plant, second to none in the country. built on the Cottage Plan, and is a credit to the Society and the entire state Work Supported Entirely by Voiun- tary Contributions The Home Society has no endow ment fund, receives no support from the City, County or State, and de pends solely and entirely on volun- tary contributions of money, food and clothing. Its support is very demo- cratic, for it comes in from the school children's pennies to' the largest con tribution of $1000. Devoted Service Brings Results If there is any one snecial reason for the success of The Children's Home Society of Florida and its crreat state-wide undenominational work, it is the unquestioned aid and desire in the office, in the field, and in the homes that its officers and helpers have at all times given to the little children, that have come under its care. The Home Societv hu nr. ried out for twenty years, its aim to provide for the need of every white child in the state, remrrileft of ihm , need, and regardless of the creed, as far as its funds would permit. ' Work is Known Through the Nation The work of the Florida Society is favorably known through the whole nation. Scores of other children's agencies have sent their representives tc Florida to see its Home, study it methods, etc. The present Superin tendent, Marcus C Fare, known everywhere in Florida as "Daddy" Fagg has been elected twice presi-' den of The National Children's Home and Welfare Association, with head quarters in Chicago, Vice President of the National Conference of Social Work, with headquarters at Cincin nati and a member of the executive committee of the Child Welfare League of America, with headquart ers in New York City. Last year Mr.' r agg was elected state superintend of The Illinois Home and Aid Society, a; mcago, but declined the offer. Work Directed by Fine Groan f Men and Women Much of the success of the ChrA- ren's Home Society of Florida is doe to the fine group of men and women who compose its Board of Directors ana indies Auxiliary. , These men and women have not only given thrf. time and energy and thoughtful per sonal direction to tne work, but have given thousands of dollars in mmu enough -for many years to cover all omce and overhead expenses, so ffc. every dollar of the public's money could go directly and entirely into the work of the orphan and homeless chil dren.
