"Come, Says Proclamation
Three Shipments of
Letters Are Coming
PARIS, Dec.9. Three shipments of
home-bound mail from the American
army totaling 8,500,000 letters, left
France between November 26 and De
cember 2. The previous week's mall
numbered 6,000,000 letters. The In
crease is 'believed to be due to the
"father's letters" -which the men In the
army had been asked to write on No-1
vember 24. . ,
WASHINGTON, Dec. 9. President
Wilson. In a proclamation made pub
lic today, calls on every American to
Join the American Red Cross during
Christmas roll-call week, December 16
to 23, "and thus send forth to tho
.whole human family the Christmas
greeting for which it waits, and for
which it stands In greatest need."
The proclamation, prepared before
the president departed for Europe,
"To the American People:
"One year ago 22,000,000 Americans,
by enrolling as members of the Red
Cross at Christmas time, sent to the
men who were fighting our battles
overseas a stimulating message of
cheer and good will. They made It
clear that our people were of their
own freo choice united with their gov
ernment in the determination not only
to wage war with the Instruments of
destruction, but also by every means
In their power to repay the ravages
of the Invader and sustain and renew
the spirit of the army and of the
homes which they represent.
"The friends of the American Red
Cross In Italy, Belgium and France
have told and will tell again the story
of how tho Red Cross workers restor
ed morale In the hospitals, in . the
camps and at the cantonments, and
we ought to be very proud that we
have been permitted to be of service
to those whose sufferings and whose
glory are the heritage of humanity."
"Now, by God's grace, the Red Cross
Christmas message of 1918 is to be a
' message of peace as well as a message
of good will. But peace does not mean
that we ran fold our hands. It means
further sacrifice. We must prove con
clusively to an attentive world that
America is permanently aroused to the
needs of the new era, our old indiffer
ence gone forever.
"The exact nature of, the future ser
vice of the Red Cross will depend
upon the program of the associated
governments, but there is immediate
need today for every heartening word
ar.d for every helpful service. We
must not forget that our soldiers and
our sailors are still under orders and
still have duties to perform of the
highest consequence, andNthat the Red
Cross Christmas membership means
t great deal to them. The people of
the saddened lands, moreover, return
ing heme today where there are no
homes must have the assurance that
the hearts of our people are with them
In the dark and doubtful days ahead.
Let us. so far as we can. help them
back to faith in mercy and future r-
"As president of the Red Cross, con
scious in thi3 great hour of the value
of such a message from the American
people, I should be glad if every
American would Join the Red Cross
for 1919, and thus send forth to the
whole human family the Christmas
greeting for which it waits and for
which It stands in greatest need.
