How to Aid the Stricken Little Sister of the World = 'By WILL mWIJV = FOR the first time In its history the postofflce department has been en listed in a charitable undertaking. From this time forth any Amer ican who wishes to give food to the starviug people of Belgium has only to stamp his parcel in the regular way and seud it through the parcel post It will go as straight and fast as rail and water will carry it to the doors of the starving Belgians, and the money he has paid for stamps will be refunded to the donor by the American Commission For Relief In Belgium, the executive offices of which are at 71 Broadway, New York city. Seven million people, mostly women, children and old men, are still Bhut up in Belgium. Industry stopped when the Germans came; the money gave out through the payment of fines and indemnities; the crops were mainly ruined. With the coasts cut off, Belgium, which imports three-quarters of her food supply in normal times, could Import no more. Work is gone; money is gone; most Important of nil, food Is gone. The German conquerors, who need all their own supplies to guard against the proposed "siege of Germany" by the allies, cannot and will not feed them. The allies, fearing that the Germans will seize nny food coming from n hostile source, cannot or will not feed them. America must feed them or they will starve. There Is no other way. Seven million people, until last year the most Industrious, peaceable and prosperous nation in Europe, will go to their graves this winter unless America gives as never nation gave before. While Belgium needs everything, she needs most of all Just food-non perishable food which will stund the test of ocean transportation, such as flour pf any kind, peas, beans and preserved meats. The donor has only to put up his gift In pnekages of not less than twenty-five pounds nor more thaD fifty pounds, stamp It in the usual way and mail it at the nearest postofflce. If the donor adds his own name and address, TOGETHER WITH THE LET TER "R," the money he has paid for stamps will be refunded to him by the commission.
