Charity Begins at Home (No. 3) Ada needs a home for the poor and needy. A home after the fashion of the old-time "Poor House" is not needed and not to be thought of. But a home where temporary cases of charity can be taken and cared for is one of the vital needs of the city. When the blizzard came the other day it found some of the unfortunates without either money or fuel. They had to be cared for in the best way possible. Available homes for all of these could not be found at once. It became necessary to take some of them to a hotel. This was an unnecessary expenditure of both time and money. If a home known as a refuge for the needy had been available, the unfortunate ones could have at once-to that refuge. It woulct hot have been necessary- for Rev. Damron to canvass for possible accommodations and to seperate families that -they be accommodated. When' people are'suffering and need help, they need it at once. Charity to be efficient and give value received must be centralized. This truth was apparent to the Red Cross and the United Charities Monday when they merged their activities. A central loca- tion or home for charitable purposes is one of the needs of Ada. It is needed to husband the resources of the charitably inclined. It is also needed to af- ford immediate relief. It is needed also to provide a place where all donations may be sent or taken. But a monthly budget of will not be sufficient. Our ten thousand population are giving one postage stamp each month to organized char- ity. They would gladly give two stamps or three stamps each month if the matter' was only proper- ly presented to them. They have never failed to answer a call for charity overseas. They know that charity really begins at home. Continue Along the Esthonian Frontier KnlifU's. lly LONDON.
