U-22-2t How Red CroM Funds are Alio viting Suffering in War-Stricken Europe "We regard the Red Cross na an emblem whi ti is smybolic of the or ganized heart of the American no. tion," said National Chit ii mutt Davi son, in a memorable address deliver, ed at Birmingham last Wednesday. This "organized heart" has beenj the dynamic force in pouring over $85,000,000 of the $102,000,000 subscribed into the Red Cross tren iiry to alleviate the sufferings of hu manity in war-stricken Europe. It is f vital interest to you and me to learn just how this money is being expended abroad, and how the Red' Cross workers are unselfishly giving their services to the cause. The hospital side of the Red Cross work is of primary importance. A'l, over the United States thousands of patriotic women are giving their time and energy to the making of surgical dressings and hospital gar ments for wounded soldiers. If you would realize how desperately these things are needed in the hospitals at the front and with what heroic service the Red Cross nurse is ministering to shattered men, read that soul-nwak-cning little book, ''Mademoiselle Miss" (on sale at Divelhiss' Book Store fifty cents), a series of re vealing letters from an Amerrlan Red Cross nurse in a French Army Hospital at the front. "Undaunted soul, so strong and true and tender In loving service, eager self-sur render; Her step, comes cheer and hopi and healing, Presence of the seamless robe re vealing. A tou 'h, a tear, and wounds ar. scars, Sweet Mercy at the heels of Mnr. Celestial spirit by a vheepirg work enticed, Compassionate, incarnate, Mother heart of Christ." But Red Cross ministrations are not nfined to hospitals. Innumer able opportunities are given to alle viate not only the Bufferings of sol diers, but to aid the destitute civilian population in the countries at war. For example, the Red Cross is sending 650,000 tins of milk to feed the starving babies of Russian so!, diers, the Red Cross is helping thou sands of under-nourished, sick, am' orphaned Belgian children, and tV Red Cross has appropriated one am1 a quarter million dollars for enier gency relief work in Roumania. All these things , icd more, yon money and my money your servic and my service are doing for war Stricken humanity. Ought we not ti thank God that in this opportun t for exercising red-blooded Chr'stian ty our dollars and our energy art able to "a far, far better thing nov than they have ever done?" "It is imperative thnt all of th sweaters, wristlets) and socks the can possibly be made by the wome bf the country should be turned int- the Supply Department at the ear' iest Dossible dates. With the cob' weather coming on, the demand fo sweaters especially has been beyon the capacity of all our resources U supply. We have forwarded prompt ly all knittted articles received fror the chapters and have in addit'c been compelled to buy in the mi' kct 550,000 sweaters, of wh ch rhn 250,000 have been del vered. The sweaters are machine knit, and th yarn is a mixture of cotton and wool, so that it does not withdraw any considerable amount of yar from the women knitters of the Re Cross. We are buying aU the yarr we are able to secure that is su'tabl for knitters and sending it out t the Chapters as fast as we 'an pn delivery of it. We have receive-' from the Chapters about 200,00r sweaters, all of wh'ch have been de livered to the men in the camp3 an training stations with the except;on of a few thousand which we have hac' to send to France. . The requests o' our organization in France fo' sweaters and knitted goods have ha;' to remain unsatisfied, on account of our inability to secure enough for men in our own army and navy. We call upon the women to give up thei very best report from now until a' least January first that we may be able to furnish our own men with those comforts and have some to Bpare for the dire needs in France."

C. HACKLEMAN & SON Columbus, Miss. Thanksgiving Day Proclamation President Wilson has issued the following proclamation, calling upon the nation, even in the midst of the sorrow and grt'at peril of a world shaken by war to thank God for blessings that are bott than mere peace of mind and prosperity of enterprise. "It has long been the honored custom of our people to turn in the fruitful autumn of the year in praise and thanksgiving to Al mighty God for His many blessings and mercies to us as a nation. The custom we can follow now even in the midst of the tragedy of a word shaken by war and immeasurable disaster, in the midst of sorrow and great peril, because even amidst the darkness that has gathered about us we can see the great blessings God has bestowed upon us, blessings thtt are better than mere peace of mind and pros perity of enterprise. "We have been given the opportunity to serve mankind as we once served ouiwdves in the great day of our Declaration of Inde dence, by taking up same against tyranny that threatened to matter and debase men everywhere and joining with other free peo ple in demanding for all the nations of the world what we then d.i i a uled and obtained for ourselves. In this day of revelation of our duty not only to defend our own rights as a nation but to di i'eiul also the rigiits of free ment hroughout the world there has been vouchsafed us in full and inspiring measure the resolution and spirit of united action. 'We have been brought to one mind and purpose. A new vigor of common counsel and common action hns bren re vealed in us. We should especially thank God that in such circum stances, in the midst of the greatest enterprise the spirits of me,i have entered upon, we have, if we but observe a reasonable and pract'cable economy, abundance with which to supply the needs of those associated with us as well as our own. A new light shines about us. The great duties of a new day awakens a new and great er national ppirit in us. We shall jiever again be divided or vondo ii t stuff we are mad o. "And wh le we render thanks for these things let us pray Al r"'"Vv f'od that in all humbleness of spirit we may look always to Him for guidance that we may bt kept constant in the spirit and purpose of service that by His grace our hearts may be directed ar.d our hands strengthened; that in His good time liberty and security and peace and comradeship, our common justice may be vouchsafed all the nations on earth. "Whereas, I, Woodrow Wilson, president of the United St;ites of America do hereby designate Thursday, the twenty-ninth day of November next, as a day of thanksgiving and prayer, and invite the people throughout the land to cease upon that day from their ordi nary occupat'ons and in the'r several homes end places of worship to render thanks to God, the great ruler of nations.
