Appeal to Helpful and
I want to take the public into an !
intimate conl'ulonop and reveal some
outstanding facts which my long a>» |
fiocintion with this institution and its]
Miwrintondont and officers have cn-•

person, whose heart goes out to the]
unfortunate and the afflicted and to |
these that need help in being relieved 1
us an annoying physical defect, will!
be interested in this statement.
Enlightened humanity in the state

ever before in th# matter of health

disputable evidence of the growth and
broadening of a proud ciwlizafiton of |
which we may justly boast. People
have learned that sometime in the pa>t
no time was lost in calling in aid
JLhen a pet horse, or a prized hog, or
blooded coy, or a pedigreed hound,
showed signs of illness. That state
ment was made by leaders of health
campaigns in showing a general anx
iety for the welfare of beasts a.nd al-.
leging that when illness overtook a
member of the family it could be
successfully met by a home treatment
or neighborhood nostrums. Not so to-
f r ; public thought and sentiment
re . brought people to realize that
time should be lost in getting the
t and promptest treatment avail
able. Even surgery, once striking hor
ror to the average heart, has come in
to a grateful acceptability among the
majority, many having become benefic
iaries of its blcssingH.
There be few enterpris : ng and for
ward-looking towns and cities that do
not now have in their midst a liospit- 1
Hi to make available the professional
services of experts and surgeons; and
those not so blessed are striying to
possess one. That shows aroused, con
sciousness of a public duty that the
well owe to the afflicted. It is noth

little thing like the tooth-ache will •

How can he be cheerful, hail-fellow

treatment in eases that demand swift
and imperative attention. The results
are most gratifying and are visible
j In the subject's demeanor and appli

is utterly impossible for the institu

success and satisfaction and econo

There are no funds available or in

been adopted. It meets with the

Men and women, whom God has
blessed with worldly goods, are inter
ested in doing a public service while
they arc yet in the flesh and to see
their donations contributing to the
relief of suffering and putting unfor
tunate ones into an equal race, iu
life. This is no theory. Too many |
many men and women, who have ren-1
dered us a valuable serv'op with their
money and gifts, in making this in
stitution the wonder it is ih finch a
short period of time, have expressed
-1 the comfort and joy they experienced
| in their manifestation of heiepfulness,
jto entertain sot a moment the idea
that people do not love to be of'a ser
vice to their fellows.
It will be my pleasure to lay this
matter before generous and benevo
lently inclined men anti women. 1
know the state possesses them to
marked degree. I know,-too, that peo
ple do not fall upon your bosom, weep
ing. and beg you to accept theiri dona
tions ; but they are awaiting an op
portunity presented to show their
willingness to aid worthy causes.
This I purpose doing. I have no
doubt of the results. Stingy, pessim
istic folks think that everybody else
is Tkewisc afflicted, but I know that it
is not sot— North Carolina is blessed
with generous and helpful people. I
.desire and hope at no distant day to
reeord the names of seventy-five of
them in my little book.
This proposed campaign, that has
an appeal in it to fine spirited folks,
reached the Car of one gentleman, who
lost no time in addressing the follow

“Albemarle,' N. (’.. Oct. 0, 192i>.
“My dear Mr. Cook :
“I am in full and hearty sympa
thy with,the proposition of building
a Memorial Hospital at the Jackson
Training School for the remedying of
the physieal defects of the many boys
eoming to the institution.' I know the
best results cannot be obtained in your
training of boys, when they are con
stantly annoyed by ft physieal defect.
"It affords me great pleasure to be
one of the seventy-five persons to make
the said hospital a certainty ; and I
hereby contribute one thousand (sl,-
000.00) dollars for said laudable and
much needed addition to the plant of
the Jackson Training School.
“Wishing you splendid success in
this great Work and with |>ersonal re
gards, I am. '

This letter of'Mr. Etird. ,olie of the
slate’s most successful and far-seeing
gentlemen, is a pleasant and most
lieartehing proof the proposition
will appeal to the hearts and purses
of people who hear the call for help.
I crave in bringing to a successful
conclusion this effort to supply a
