AN APPEAL FOR RE LIEF OF ARMENIA Miss Tula Daniels, Chairman of Near East Relief Work in Breckinridge County. DO YOU KNOW That two mil lion Armenians arc alive today, be cause of American generosity? DO YOU KNOW That from 100, 000 to 200,000 Armenian women can not be released from Turkish harems until provision for their care is made by Near East Relief? DO YOU KNOW That one quar ter of a million homeless children, many of them orphaned, because their parents refused to renounce the Chris tian faith, arc dependent for life upon American philanthropy? They do not ask charity, only a chance to win back their industrial independence. They were our allies during the late war. keeping back the Turks from the oil fields from which they supplied German submarines. Suppose they had failed us? Shall we Tail them?- One woman says, "Not if I know my coun try? Remember, that ships carry with out cost, food we give. Hi this oldest Christian Nation of the ' world, 'tis said. the dead, the dying, freezing, starving .are so ghostly, so numerous, the children wandering half clad, like little hungry puppies and searching garbage, cracking old bones, sleep ing on piles of dead bodies to keiep off the frozen ground. 'Tis said even graves have been opened, and bodies removed, and boiled in their iron vessels They have lost all horror or fear of the dead, because they lie all about the face of the earth. Travelers Tel! This. , an travelers on their return tell t'iee things and. say; that, all desire for foo.l loaves then' until forced by real h::ugcr pangs they make them selves eat. That the words, horrible! tcrriblel awful I are the only qnes that begin to describe what the children endure. Eight pounds of flour mixed with ground beans are to. last an adult five months. No provision for the children. The Armenians must be kept alive, and Americans arc the people to do it. Do not .let us get tired, and say "we have done so much". Other countries' in the State are exceeding their quota. Ours is only $2,815. That isn't much for so many of us, is it? Louisville, is planning to raise $100,000. Imagine a bread line of 120,000 wait-' ing for their dole of food that is the sole barrier between them and star vation! "Hunger knows no armistice." Ex-President Taft, Bryan, Hoover,' Tosephus Daniels and President Wil son arc some of the many men who" heartily endorse this work for Syrian and Armenian relief, in the Near East. Nearer home are the well known Major John H. Leathers, Rev. E. L. Powell, of Louisville All concede that the greatest tragedy of the world is being enacted in Armenia for loyalty; to Christ. $15.00 per month provides' food, clothes, shelter and school for one orphan. $10 00 per month, food, clothes and shelter for one. $5.00 pro vides food for lone. Will you not hasten with your offering to our Ifreasurer for the county? Mr. B. F. Beard, Jr., ass't chs' t'er of The Bank of Hardinsburg & Trust Company, make checks tor Near East Relief to him as Treasurer. Tula C. Daniels. Chairman, Breckinridge County.
