I fully appreciate the fact that j
"last minute appeals" in political J
contests are not popular- It is so
often that in such appeals "new mat

the candidates resorting to such ap- j

That there were hungry people in the

that there were professional bnma

of course, of any assistance from any
source. But these constituted only a
small portion of the crowd. Most of

what the situation will bo by the end

of a small sum drawn by Miss Kern
during January and February, when
she was giving her whole time to the
work. She was given a little- some
thing then, because, as it happens.
Miss Kern must also eat, if she is to
live. But she drew nothing from anv
funds or donations made to the As
