NATION-WIDE CAMPAIGN FOR BELGIAN RELIEF Red Cross Will Repeat “Used Clothes Week,” at Request of Government. September 23 to 30 is Week Set for Drive Cablegram from Herbert Hoover to Henry P. Davison. / Henry P. Davison, Chairman, Red Cross War Council, Wnsh : ngton, D. C. The ten million imprisoned people in occupied Belgium and France are facing shame, suffering, disease, and some of them death, for lack of clothing this winter. They must be helped. I hope that the Red Cross Will undertake a renewed campaign to obtain this clothing in America. It can cpme only from us. Your first campaign yielded magnificent results, bringing in fully 5,000 tons of cloth ing in good condition. But much more is needed if these war-ravaged people are to get through the winter in decency and safety. In the face of brutal coercion and •spiritual suf fering they remain splendidly cour ageous. This courage challenges our charity. Let us match the courage of Belgium by tha. generosity of America. HERBERT HOOVER. fiarniMti of every Kind Needed Every kind of garment, for all ages and both sexes, is urgently needed. In addition, piece gbods—light, warm, canton flannel and other kinds of cloth from which to make garments for new-born babies, ticking, sheet ing and blankets, woolen goods of any kind and shoes of every size are asked for. Scrap leather is needed for repairing footwear. Since the clothes will be subjected to the hardest kind of wear, only garments made of strong and dura ble materials should ba sent. It is useless to offer to any afflicted popu lation, garments of flimsy material or gaudy coloring. Make the gifts practical. Garments need not be in perfect condition. A hundred thousand des titute women in the occupied regions are eager to earn a small livelihood by repairing gift clothing and mak ing new garments adapted to needs with which they are familiar. Do Not Send Garments of flimsy material or gaudy coloring, ball dresses, high heeled slippers, etc. Stiff hats, either men’s or women’s straw, dress or derby. Anything containing rubber, rain coats, rubber boots, etc. Note: Rub ier heels can easily be removed from shoes. Books, toys, soap, toilet articles. Notes or communications of any sort or description must positively not be sent. Clothing may be delivered to the local Red Cross rooms at the old City Hall building, near the Repub lican office. Deliver between Sept. 23d and 30th. RESULT OF LOAN CONFERENCE Special. Denver: Determination to win, was the spirit expressed by each of the District and County Chairman who attended the Liberty Loan con ference in this city Tuesday, prepar atory to the Fourth Liberty Loan drive. R. L. Cross, Chairman of the Lib erty Loan Committee of the Tenth Federal Reserve District of Kansas City, was present and in the general discussion, which occupied the day, outlined the work for the coming campaign. The exact quota for the Tenth District and for Colorado is not known, but it is known that Col orado’s propprtion will be between forty-five and fifty-five million dol lars. Chairmen were present from practically every county in the state and from every district. Harold Kountze, the present Chair man of the Liberty Loan Committee of Colorado, announced that he had been called to the aviation service and would probably leave before the Loan is completed, but he presented Samuel D. Nicholson, the neW Chair man, who will take active charge of the drive upon the departure of Mr. Kountze. Just before the meeting adjourned, very commendatory resolutions were adopted expressing the good wishes of all present toward Mr. Kountze, the Chairman, and Mr. John Evans, th'* Vice-Chairman, for the work they have done in the Treasury Depart ment activities since the war started. The resolutions wished them well in their new war activities and a safe return to Colorado after they have finished their wdrk in the army, for Mr. Evans,, and in the aviation, for Mr. Kountze.
