Kerensky was the man who realized
the force of the great body of the peo
ple who were neither aristocrats nor
visionary radicals. He had the power
to command their confidence, and the
ci ;rage with imagination to act on it.
i'he great mass of earnest country
folk was behind him when, newly ap
pointed minister of war, he took a step
that might have meant revolt. This
was Ills new order re-establishing iron
discipline in thearmies.
Kerensky had no military training.
His powers are those of a statesman.
In nervous force and talent for or
ganization he is compared to Lloyd
George of England. The day before
the outbreak of the revolution his
name was almost unknown in Russia.
His father was a school principal in
Simbirsk. Kerensky himself studied
law in Petrograd. He became com
missioner of oaths there, and allied
himself with the labor party of Russia.
Radical he was and a fervid orator,
hut with constructive impulses.
Among his first activities as a self
infiointed leader of the Council of
Workmen was to make himself per
-onaliy responsible for the safety of
riie royal family, and for Stuermer
and Protopopoff.
He refused to accept the resignation
if generals whose men were refusing
lo recognize their authority, then he
-established that authority. He took
liis place at the fro,it rn the first of
fensive and now stands forth as the
strong man of Russia.

America. The supply of all kind of
materials for the war will bring that
about, he said.

President Appeals to School Children
of Nation to Enroll in Red Cross Work
To the School Children of the United States:
The President of the United States is also President of
the American Red Cross. It is from these offices joined
in one that I write you a word of greeting at this time
when so many of you are beginning the school year.
The American Red Cross has just prepared a Junior
Membership with School Activities in which every pupil
in the United States can find a chance to serve our coun
try. The school is the natural center of your life. Thru
it you can est work in the great cause of freedom to
which we :e all pledged ourselves.
Our Junior Red Cross will bring to you opportunities
of service to your community and to other communities
all over the world and guide your service with high and
religious ideals. It will teach you how to save in order
that suffering children elsewhere may have the chance to
live. It will teach you how to prepare some of the sup
plies which wounded soldiers and homeless families lack.
It will send to you through the Red Cross Bulletins the
thrilling stories of relief and rescue. And best of all,
more perfectly than through any of your other school
lessons, you will learn by doing those kind things under
your teacher’s direction to be the future good citizen of
this great country which we all love.
And I commend to all school teachers in the country
the simple plan which the American Red Cross has worked
out to provide for your cooperation, knowing as T do that
school children will give their best service under the
direct guidance and instruction of their teachers. Is not
this perhaps the chance for which you have been looking
to give your time and effort in some measure to meet
our national needs ?
September 15,1917. President
