Millions and millions of stricken people in devastated Europe
must depend on the activity of the Red Cross society alor»e for the most
meager necessities of life—just enough to keep body and soul together.
The Red Cross organization is the universal helping hand. But in
order to extend this hand to the sorrowing and afflicted, it must havo
your support. In fact, if you would do your part to relieve the suffer
ing in the world, you can do it most directly and efficiently through the
Red Cross. Become a member today. Give one dollar—two dollars—
five dollars—as much as you can.
