The appeal tell? in brief .ne past work, present aims and future ambitions of the Red Cross. It follows: “The Great American Mother is calling the Roll for the third time. Will we answer the call? Twice while we were in war and distress she called to us and we were prompt to answer her call. She said to us: “I will    go with    your    boy,”    “I will go with    your husband,” “I    will go with your brother,” “I will go with your sweetheart.” “If they thirst, I will give them drink.” “If they hunger,    I will    feed    them.” How well she performed that duty I will let the boys that have returned frdnn foreign lands and those from the camps on this side tell the story. “Then at a time when the gallant sons of    France    were    sore    pressed, and the then mighty German hosts were inarching down on Paris, she said to those gallant men, ‘Go back, I will care for your loved ones at home.’ ‘I will clothe and feed them while you meet the enemy of civilization.” It was then that the French soldier sprang back to the trenches, his morale restored, met the enemy and rolled them back of the Marne. “She heeded not the mire and the vermin of the trenches. Her heart was overwhelmed with the thought of service. Service to the dying. Service to the living. Service to civilization. Service to Liberty and service to Democracy. “The screaming shells that burst over her head were no terror to her. Where our boys went, she went. How oft she wrote the last words. How many manly brows were caressed for the last time by this “greatest of all Mothers?” These were war times. Now the screaming shell is silent and the peace has come that we trust will last forever. But she comes again, battle scarred,.but with the victory perched on her brow, and says, ‘Will you trust me?’ ‘You trusted me when your boy was in my care, I have helped to return surrounded by the Bolshevik!, is, made in a wireless dispatch from j    to you, will you trust me now?* the Soviet government from Moscow today.
