We, the ladles of tho War Belief
Committee, wish to make this state
ment to the public, feeling that our
women should do something for our
own soldiers to show to them that
women of their own race were Inter
ested" in the sacrifice they are making,
wo decided to organize ourselves into
a War Relief Committee, thinking wo
would be able to do something that
wo later found we were not allowed
to do, such as meeting our boys at
the Station and distributing little
gifts. Though we gave 47 stamped
postcards and 400 cigarettes, we again
made an effort by opening a place
of welcome for boys on coming to our
city, but It was a little out of tho
way, so didn't attract as we had
hoped. Yet God, Who knows the de
sire of the heart, will take the effort
for 'the consummation of the deed
and number us with those who tried
to do their part. Wo sent 46 scarfs
to Camp Dodge, gave the Red Cross
a ton of coal and helped them sew
and knit; we sent a sweater overseas
to one of our Y. M. C. A. workers.
Wo are holding what money we have
in the bank to help give the boys a
hearty welcome when they return.
Wo have not difcbanded, but holding
together as a Community Service
Committee, helping worthy persons
and doing for humanity whatever our
handi find to do. We thank every
ladywho has stood by us in our most
earnest effort and ask your co-operation
in our new work.
