"The mother, creeping back, gaunt and cold, from the desert, has put down the thin little bones with those that strew the road and has sunk be side them, never to rise again. "Only a little child and a mother eut on the bleak Armenian road 1 But what la that vision hovering there and what Is that voice the cold winds bear to the ears of our souls—T was hungry and ye gave me no meat; I was naked and ye clothed me not.* "Today—yes, today Tlnw beober. as htle we a(V preparing our gifts for Christmas many more of these little children— not a hundred nor a thousand, bu» 250,000 of them—are still wandering nncared for and alone In that dead land, their weazened skins dinging In fear to their rattling bones,' and they are crying out with gasping breath, 1 a in hungry, I am hungry P And the voice of one who watches us as we prepare gifts to celebrate his birth day comes again to the ears of our aouls—T am hungry I I am hungry II I am hungry 11P "Now, the children and the mothers In Armenia are dreading the winter. 'Just human remnants they are, not protected, many of them, from the ele ments by even the dignity of rags. The most favored have merely shred ded rags.'
