Uvl/II A Iflu CC/ inn and Syrian relief, under the chairmanship of Rev. C. V. Dunn, announce that they desire to complete the work in one day—Dec. 8th, and are asking the co-operation of the citizenship of the town and county in order that the county’s quota, which is not large, may be finished in one day. While many drive for funds are coming at this time, no one will deny that this is one of as mnch importance as any that have ever been inaugurated. That rands are needed in these unfortunate lands no one will deny. The story can be swiftly told. By massacre, deportation, confiscation, and other methods of persecution, the Turks have tried to annihilate the rion-Turkish population of Western Asia. It is estimated that of the survivors 4.000,000 Armenians, Syrians, Jews, Greeks and Persians are destiute. Of this number 400,000 are orphans. To say merely that they are destitute is not enough. Except where help from the outside has reached them they are dying by hundreds every day of starvation and disease. They have no homes and no clothing. They exist in hovels and caves. They have to fight for single grains of wheat* they scramble for refuse to eat. they have been so tortured and they are so.desperate—tome of them—that they have dug human bodies from their graves and eat them.    ~~ Nowhere in history is .there a record of human suffering on such a scale.    ^ Since October, 1915, the American Committee for Armenian and Syrian Relief (The American Committee for Relief in the Near East) has been the channel of relief for these sufferers. Itsk territory extends from Constantinople to Teheran, and from the Caucasus Mountains to Palestine and Port Said, in Egypt. During the war this work necessarily was very limited, because of the impossibility of proper communication and the changing military and economic conditions, but since the signing of the armistice it has been possible to provide relief on an extensive scale. Prior to December, 1918, the committee distributed relief to a total value of about 19,000,000; its most effective twenty-five minute speeches ever heard in Ada. Mr. Rogers had only forty-five minutes between trains to reach the normal building and deliver the address he had been invited to deliver. But he managed to express in his limited time more forceful and inspiring thoughts than are often heard by a public speaker., "I bring you a message from the Sleepy Hollow of the past,” said Mr. Rogers. “Ten of my life’s best years w*ere spent as a teacher, and while I have had some success in the professional and business world, I count those successes as of little worth when compared with what success I may have achieved in the school room. You occupy the meet important and least rewarded position in society. I am ashamed to learn that the best ward principal in the city of Tulsa receives three dollars less each month than the negro janitor of the building, who also receives his room rent free.” That the public has become keenly alive to the inadequacy of the pay teachers are receiving and will take all necessary steps to correct the evil was the assertion of Mr. Rogers, abd he urged the teachers to be patient and justify better pay by still better work. But he touched the most responsive chord of his audience in a stirring appeal for the Americanization of our citizenship and of our schools. “A government sufficiently .strong to deserve our respect is sufficiently strong to deport every undesirable alien. WO must destroy everything that even looks red. If necessary, we (Continued on Pace 5.) „ Educational *Picture Show For the Children We the ward principals of Ada public schools heartily endorse tho plan of having a moving picture show at the High school on Friday night of each week. ♦ ♦ Milissa Logen vs. Finis Logcn is NOTICE TO ADVERTISERS.
