ALL SALVATION ARMY PLEDGES DUE ONSEPT. 1 On September 1 all pledges to the Salvation Army are due. Facing the immense task of home service reconstruction throughout Florida, Georgia, North and South • Carolina, in the aftermath of the ■war, as it strips for action to be friends the poor through the com ihg winter, an urgent appeal has been issued by the Salvation Army that pledges due September 1 be met promptly. The Salvation Army kept faithful ly its trust in the world war and stood the acid test,” declared Brig adier A. W. Crawford, in charge of the Salvation Army work in the de partment of the southeast, with of fices in Atlanta, in his appeal for payment of these pledges. FAnd I believe the people who subscribed to our Home Service Campaign fund last spring will keep faith with the Salvation Army,” he added. “The work this fall and winter will be four-fold. The full quota of soldiers w’ho went to war will be back. Thousands will need jobs and the helping hand of the Salvation Army in reconstruction fairly whiz. Industrial homes, rescue homes, the Salvation Army stores where the poor may supply their needs for a mere pittance —or for nothing—and all of its other charitable institu tions practically are being rebuilt. The Salvation Army drained its every resource in rushing to the aid of the country and the succor of its soldier boys, when the_war broke out. Now it must go back and weld to gether the links it dropped in its chain of endeavor at home. Payment cf the pledges that fall due on September 1 means the keeping by the people of the depart ment of the southeast of its promise to the army. Make your payments , to T. H. McLendon, campaign treas urer, at Planters Bank. Daily Thought.
