Eggs having now assumed an undue

BUY SEAL FOR A CENT
HELP THE RED CROSS
SPREAD XMAS CHEER
About your Penny Day plans?
Have you made any yet?
It's something that everyone can get in on, old or young, rich or poor,
active or bedridden, kindly or mean. For even the meanest person would
hardly begrudge the expenditure of a penny.
And think of the cause.
Red Cross Christmas seals are cheerful looking little things.
They help out in the message of Christmas cheer which is abroad in
the land about this time of the year.
They are properly adhesive and can be attached to a letter or a parcel,
and they take to every one the assur- 11 I —' *r"
ance that you are helping in the fight
against the dreaded "white plague."
Next Friday is Penny day. ,
The San Francisco Association, for
the Study and Prevention of Tuber
culosis is putting forth a mighty ef
fort to make the sale of their seals
a distinctly popular and universal and
general sort of an affair on that par
ticular day and The Call and Post
will help in every way possible.
Plans are materializing among
leaders of the Tuberculosis associa-
It will not be long until every one
will be told about them—but in the
meantime just plan a bit yourself.
Get the children interested.
Explain to them, mothers and fa
thers in the homes, teachers in the
schools; tell them just what the ex
pending of their pennies on that day
will stand for.
Make them realize the acourge of
tuberculosis, the possibility that any
one may fall a victim to it.
Then tell them how, with proper
funds, the association can work to
It's not only those who are af
flicted already that the organization
aids, with all the means that science
and kindly thought can devise, but
those who have merely the tendency,
those who are in insanitary surround
ings, those who have no idea of how
to protect their health—they like
wise can be assisted to become strong
or to remain healthy.

begin to think and to talk about lt.

Speak to the wealthy but though

If you appealed to her tender heart.
