and gratitude It has elicited
from tho troops Is a sufficient
evidence of the work It has
done, and I feel that I should
not so much commend it as to
congratulate It. Cordially and
alncerely yours,

'OUT OF LOVE" CLUB
UNIQUE ORGANIZATION
Members Are Girls Rescued by
Salvation Army.
The "Out of Ive" Club Is one of
tbe important club organizations main
tained by the Salvation Army In this
country. In every large city where
there Is a Salvation Army corps girls
who have been helped back Into the
normal pace of a workaday world are
proud of the membership In this club.
Disappointed, loveless girls who do not
forget kindnesses shown them In their
hour of greatest need give out of love
to help other girls receive the same
friendliness. In a simple, quiet way,
this unique Idea has been maintained
for over 20 years.
In every large city In the country
there are glris who have needed the
ministrations of the Salvation Army.
After they have been helped and sent
on their way again they become life
members of this club If they so desire.
Only girls are admitted who have given
a good account of themselves for at
least one month In the positions found
for them by the Salvation Army after
their release from a hospital or home.
These girls pledge themselves to keep
alive the spirit of friendliness and
home which the Salvation Army has
spread among them. The girls are
expected to dress In a plain, simple
way, and avoid in any sense of the
word gaudy or tawdry clothing.
Gossiping or tale bearing Is tabooed.
If members of the club transgress this
rule they are liable to suspension for
a month or longer. Tbe "Out of Love
Club" Is one of the many activities that
will benefit by the success of the Salva
tion Army House Service Fond Cam-
palgn for SlS.000,000 May 19-20.
