AN APPEAL TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE Three and one-half million children in Eastern and Central Europe have no alternative to disaster between now and next harvest except American aid. For months these most helpless sufferers in the track of war have been ad mitted to American feeding-stations only if tragically undernourished, and have received American medical aid only If desperately threatened by death j from disease. Winter Is closing down. The money of many nations is valueless outside their own boundaries. Economic and crop conditions make famine, with its terrible train of diseases, a certain visitor until next Imr helpless children will suffer most. No child can grow tu health and sanity the pitiful makeshifts for food with which millions of Eur i-ean adults must content themselves this winter. It is obvious that the remedy can come only from outside. lueviîauis n.e Normal America saved 6,000.000 European children winter before last, recuperation cut the need nearly In half la*t year, but unusual conditions bave resulted in scant shrinkage of child destitution during the twelvemonth just past. The response of America must now decide whether S.ÔOO.OOO of diese charges, in acute distress, shall begin to lie turned away in January from more than 17,000 asylums, hospitals, clinics and feeding-stations dependent There would be no tragedy in history so sweeping or on American support. destructive of those who can deserve no evil. so rare and creed, j The undersigned organizations, working among every many engaged also in other forms of relief, agree unanimously that the plight of these lie ip less children should have complete priority in overseas charity until the situation is met. This is an Issue without politics and without religious lines. There can be no danger of pauperization, for the S23.o00.000 for child food, and the $10,000.000 for medical service that we leek, will relieve only the critical cases. The medical supplies, of course. unqualified gift, but for every American dollar used in child must be an feeding, the governments and communities aided furnish two dollars in the form of transportation, rent, !a!i*»r. clerical help, cash contributions and such food supplies as are locally obtainable.

Seiber ac- > cepted the paper and the family read | it. The court in in said among other things that Seiber I in not refusing the paper was party to | an implied contract to pay for what he | got on the same theory that if a mer- f chant delivers groceries to the wrong j house and the person who got the gro certes and used them, was liable, or a man called to a day's work in a gar den and gets in the wrong lot and ! works a day with the knowledge of the owner of the iot, them an who re ceived the benefit of that man s work was under obligations to pay for the labor, or the man who cleans anoth-. er's pavement while the ow ner looks on without ordering the workman to ' stop, there is an implied contract to ! pay for that man's service. The same ling the jury j principle of law holds good, said the judge. when you receive a paper through the mails. In accepting the paper there is an implied contract to pay for it. The decision by the court in direct mg a verdict against the man who read the paper in favor of the pub-1 Usher is not ne^, as the question has been decided by many of the lower courts an upheld by appellate courts of nearly every state in the union.
