SbCOM E N 3 as I JA. ,I ~~1Ii)R1 REMEMBER BLIND SUO DAY, OYV. 11 November 11. "Blind Sunday" there nxill be taken up in every church, a special collection for funds to carry on the work of the "Louis iana ('ommission for the Blind." Every person who attends any of the services will be asked to con tribute. The Commission. which was or-1 ganized about two years ago, has' done splendid work during the short period of its existence It conducted for over a year the "Workshop for the Blind" in Camp street. where brooms. mops, mattresses. rugs. hammocks, etc. were made and sold, thus giving employment to many blind persons who would otherwise have been forced to accept charity. At the Fair in this city last Novem ber one of the most interesting and widely commended exhibhlts was the one showing the various occupations open to those who go through life sigh:less. The Commission has also encouraged the work of home teach ing of the blind, and many who would otherwise be a care and prob ably a burden to the home circle. now busily ply the needle, guide nimble fingers over the raised let ters of the "blind" books. and in many other ways occupy their time usefully. Besides the wonderful work al ready accomplished, the wholeheart ed members of the Commission plan great things for the future. Lou isiana is one of the very few states which does not provide a home for the homeless blind and it is the hope of the Commission to have at an early date a modern, thoroughly equipped place for the housing and teaching of these afflicted. Caring for the soldiers returning blinded from the battlefields and teaching them useful occupations, is another project in view. It is plain that this important work requires funds, and the Com mission now comes before the public for the very first time to ask every individual-white and black-Cath olic, Protestant and Jew-the mem hers of every denomination and sect -and those who profess no relig ious belief-to contribute. Every I one who thinks for a moment of what it would be to be deprived even for a short time of the sense of seeing, must feel that there could not be a more urgent reason for putting the hand into the purse and giving generously. It is the sincere hope of the Com mission that every one will answer this appeal and help this cause in the substantial way which will guar antee its continuation in the future. Let every one why attends divine service on that day give freely. Those who cannot go to the churches should send their offerings either to the churches or to any of the mem bers of the Commission. Miss Edna Kleinkemper is an en thusiastic worker for this very worthy charity and she will be' pleased to accept any contributions sent to her. Annie Grundmeyer: Messrs. Alvin McGirney.

It.. arrived at an Atlantic port recently. 1 aftter several months' strenuous ex periene on one of the navy ships in European waters, and as or dered on duty at the Brooklyn navy yard. until his health, which was impaired, is better. Not having received any letters or papers while abroad he (lid not know of the publicity given the trouble he had with the commander of his vessel until his arrival in this country, and he now makes a state ment that the trouble was due to a misunderstanding which caused his suspension from duty aboard ship. The accusation made was a misuse of city funds which the New Orleans authorities explained was an impos sibility, as he had never handled any public funds and this clear'ed up the matter. Mr. Koppel also states that he did, not try to get out of the navy. al though ae offered to resign when he found that he could not satisfy his captain. He says his enlistment was patriotic, and that he volun teered for service on active sea duty, but was not familiar with the du ties of an ensign at sea, not having had sufficient training for this ser vice. This caused dissatisfaction to his commanding officer, and caused him to apply for a transfer to naval reserve duty or to some other vessel. the commander of which would bear with his inexperience. This transfer was recomended by 1 his captain, but disapproved by the department as it desired him to stay on board for instruction and train ing. DILZELL BUYS PROPERTY. W. A.
