SUO DAY, OYV. 11
November 11. "Blind Sunday"

to carry on the work of the "Louis

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
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
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.
