The trustees of the one private fund mentioned are divid- ed among- themselves as lo where it go, for the simple reason that fiuch organizations as the Patriotic Fund, Red.Cross and-Nursing Mission] are divided. .There appears to be no' central committee of these three or- ganisations. .That naturally causes friction. "Where there should be team play there is only individual effort. There" is "no one" organization that em- braces all three. No one know the needs of all three organiza- tions. Now, everyone recognizes that each one of the organizations mentioned lias a work to do, and every dollar is needed." "The 'Nursing Mission has Its local relief to" perform, the Patriotic Fund must see that the dependents of those .fighting our battles are provided for, while the -work of the Red Cross is'too v.-ell known to require explana- tion We all know Whave a duty to each, but while giving to one, we want to know that another is not being ne- glected. We want to know that, while gnlng abroad we are leaving no suffer- jng at home. This is .but natural, and there lies the need of a central coi of all funds.
