To Sunday School Workers
To the Sunday school workers and
all who are interested in the Uelgian
We have confronting us one of the
most blessed privileges wc have ever
had. I hesitate to say duty, because
when vou and I see a child starving
and wi'th a small amount of $1.00 per
month can keep that child from dis
ease and starvation, 1 feel that I have
a great privilege of making a contri
bution. , ,
I want to appeal to the officers of
each township and superintendents of
each school also teachers of every
class in the county to give all you can.
We may never see the result here.
Eternity only will reveal the good we
have done in this and I like the idea
of doing things that we can't hope to
get anv physical return and that we
cannot 'know what good it has done.
And to start off the county the
Baraca class, Liberty M. E. church,
gives ?12.00 to keep one child in grow
ing condition; James H. Johnson, $12;
Mrs. D. M. Sharpe, $12 j Mr. C. P.
Smith, ?5, all from Liberty M. E.
I feel, Sunday schools folks, as presi
dent of your association, that 1 would
like to bring this matter to your at
tention and have sent on the $12 from
the Baraca class, and any class or in
dividual, who will give to this cause
mav send amount to me and I will
send on to the Belgian children's fund.
Yours to do all we can to help the

Belgium; and then he added:
'Within six weeks I have visited a:

1,500 children are fed daily. The chil- hungry children of some town in liol
dren were sitting clown to their meal, I gium especially designated? That

Banner.' Now, know-jboi hood. It would almost personalize
ing that the food-supply was not! their gifts.
American, I could feel nothing but! The people of Lancaster, Ta., under
Mr. Hoover is now- in this country,
seeking to arouse such a sentiment and
inspire such a purpose as will make
America's bounty match her boasted
munificence and worthy Belgian be
lief. Quoting him, the New York
Times well says, and asks:
"If Mr. Hoover, whose administra
tion of the Commission for the Relief
of Belgian has been, perhaps, the
most splendid American achievement
of the last two years, 'could feel noth
ing but shame' when that American
song was sung by Belgian children
whom the Commission has fed, what
should the rest of us feel?"
"This relief," says Mr. Hoover, "has
come to be America's greatest exhibit
in Europe. We want to give a dem
onstration of that great humanity
which we know runs through our peo
ple." The Literary Digest's readers have
responded nobly so far as they have
responded at all; but we have hoard
from less than" one-tenth of 1 per cent
of. them. Inone week the Belgian
Children's Fund has jtmpd from
$75,000 to $150,000, and this is en
couraging yes, inspiring. But even
at this rate it will take three months
or more to get that million dolb.rs.
And millions more will be needed.
Concert of action must win the goal.
It should begin at once, in a way to

benefaction. Why may not the people I
of your town undertake a proposition
leadership ot the enterprising puu-
lishers of tfic New Era, undertook to
do this very thing just one week be
fore this item is written. They said
to us: "Yes, wo will with pleasure
take care of St. Croix and its eight
hundred needy little ones, and we will
gladly raise $9,600 for this purpose."
And to show that they meant business,
they went right to work with deter
mination of doing it, as evidenced by
the announcement in the tabulation
of cash below, showing a remittance
of $4,000 already, or nearly one-half
the amount they are to raise. And
the New Era's managing editor wrote:
"Never in the history of charity
movements in this community have
the people responded more promptly
and generously than to this Belgian
appeal, first presented to our readers
through the courtesy of The Literary
Digest. The first day's appeal brought
us considerably over $1,500. The New
Era has in the last two years aided
in raising several different war-sufferers'
funds, but from none of them
nave we had such magnificent results
as from the present one. It seems to
have stuck deep into the hearts of our
neople.the tots dragged from the bread
line because they looked too well fed,
the children forced to sleep at the ta
bles where they are served with their
poorhouse rations, and the piteous
plcns for food from the emaciated
children, have touched them deeply,
and it would not bo .surpri.-in. t.i .-n:
the Lancaster fund crow to at least
$10,000. One of the mosi, remarkable
features of the movement is the very
large number of new names foun.l n
our contribution list person;-, who
have not been in the habit of tivln
to these war-charities and thoy come
from all walks of life."
There are hundreds of -such commu
nities in the United states, and all
that is necessary in. each one is a lead
er. There must be among the people
in your town many men and women of
spirit akin to that of one woman who
signed herself "A Widow with a small
income," who wrote:
"I had said to myself, I will give $5
a month for Belgian relief, if I can.'
I send it now, for fear sickness or
some other need might get is; and
her remittance of S(iO was enclosed,
while she added: "Surely at least a
million American will give $5 a month
or more, as they can. I would like to
be ono of a million so to pledge my
self." A traveling man sends his check
for $12, reminds us that there. are sev
eral thousand like him in this conn
try, and savs that if they can be
reached "not one will turn down" our
appeal. Can you reach one?
