From far-away
for help addressed to the wide world.
It- is a cry made up of many voices.

Arabia, from
Russian Caucasus, from the highways
and byways of Turkey, of Mesopo

viduals who niuke up the grout mass
from which comes this call to the civ
ilized world nre scattered far and
wide. It includes four hundred thou
sand children in towns and cities and
villages or hiding like frightened rale
bits In such shelters as they can find
In the open country ; women, most of
them gray and beyond the years of
comeliness, and others looking from
behind barred windows of the prison»
culled harems ; old men and men dis
abled, and a few men still in the
prime of life but hidden in mountains
and obscure places.
All these ure Joining In the cry that

and the deserts of Asia, the war-torn
countries of Europe, the vast Atlantic
and across our own great continent
to the very ends thereof. It is a sad
cry, an agonized cry, made up of the
treble of children, the soft voices of
women, the harsh bass of men and,
mighty as Is the mass of It, rising
from four million throuts, yet has It
the ring of exhaustion, the frenzy of
desperation. To the attentive ear It

Particularly Is tills appeal directed
to America—the one great country
which Is prosperous because it en

small part of the cost of keeping the
world safe for democracy. It is Amer
ica which must respond—immediately
and without stint,
will be time to consider fastening this
cost upon the responsible parties in
the form of stern demands for repara
tion and indemnity. There is no time
for considering the call of Justice
now. One does not think first of pun
ishing thé assailant when one sees his
victim bleeding on the pavement.
If America could only visualize the

In the little Conneetltcut town of
Norfolk there Is a triangular piece of
ground belonging to the people. For
years It stood useless, almost aban
doned, and to a certain extent un
noticed. Norfolk sent to France early
In 1918 a score and a half of her boys
■to fight with the American armies.
Other hoys followed and still more in
due course were culled from the small
but lmrdy class representing the fight
ing quota,
A few months after the first contin
gent' marched out of the town on its
way to the training camp and thence
to the line of battle, Norfolk began to
recehe Its share of tidings from the
front. Nantes of hoys known to every
one In the town were found in the lists
