RED CROSS ROLUXAU
JS SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS
Of all the observances of
Christmas the American people
have known the one this year
will be most In keeping with the
true spirit of the day. Self cen
tered exchanging of gifts will be
little in evidence because our
resources are pledged to much
more Important use.
The Red Cross Christmas Roll
Call is conceived In the new
light. When the American man,
woman or child pays the nomi
nal membership dues the action
far transcends an ordinary con
tribution. Wherever people are
starving, wherever they are sick,
wherever they lack shelter, the
Red Cross Christinas Roll Call
will stand for renewed hope and
the promisV of efficacious relief.
How necessary, then, that the
answer of the American people
should be overwhelming. The
amount of money raised is sec
ondary. The world will measure
our humanitarian purpose by the
number of names enrolled. If
the word goes out that FORTY
MILLION Americans have Joined
the Red Cross or a greater num

Those who have been on the
firing line know that the work
of the Red Cross will not end
with the proclaiming of peace.
In many respects the demands
upon the Red Cross will in

opened. The readjustment pe
riod will present many opportu
nities for sharing our abundance

DEMOCRACY VS. AUTOCRACY.
"There Is no royal road to
food conservation. We can only
accomplish this by he voluntary
action of our whole people, each
element in proportion to its
needs. It is a matter of equality
The truth of this statement,
made by the United States Food
Administrator soon after we en
tered the war, has been borne
out by the history of our ex
ports. Autocratic food control
in the lands of our enemies has
broken down, while democratic
food sharing has maintained the
health and strength of this coun
