Stowart wii People' Pleads for the Belgian Children Mr. Herbert Hoover, Food-Controller of the United States, has earned the title bestowed upon him by King Albert and the Belgian Government- "Citizen of Honour and Friend of the Belgian People." The world knows what was accomplished under Hoover's administration before America's entrance into the War. In July of this year, he was in London in connection with his responsibilities as Food Controller, and took the opportunity to (earn how things stood in Belgium. So terribly serious are conditions there among the children that Mr. Hoover wrote an urgent plea, parts of which are quoted: "On May 14th, 1917, 1 adviaed you of the financial arrangement with tha Unitad States Government whereby lundi were provided (or the general rationing of the civilien population of Belgium.....1 elated my hope that the various committed of the Comminion for Relief in Belgium that had already accomplithed to much would hold together detpite the new financial arrangement in order to eupport certain needed epeeial charitiea ...... "It can be readily understood that in providing a general ration for the whole natian the rigoroui ayatem neceuary to dandle eucft a great project can meke little proviaion for special catei and for apecial needt. Theae caaet, running into hundred) of thoueanda, of lick and detective children.......cannot be taken cere of by the general fundi. There ii an increasing need for funds in these ceiei. The gilts are running low, and our I alt report! show that tha soup lines ol Belgium have increased from one-and-a-half to two-and-a-half million persons. .......... "1 wish particularly to remove any doubt as to (he acceptability of contribution* to tha Commission for Relief in Belgium lor the specie! purposes above indicated....... This transmission of money is absolutely guaranteed by virtue of an agreement between tha belligerent Governments, the C. R. B, and the Neutral (Spanish and Dutch) protecting Minister! in Brussels". Read between the lines of Mr. Hoover's letter to his auociatet, and you will realize the ever fresh tragedy ot Belgium. You will see little babies, pinched with hunger, waiting in line for the bowl ot soup and the two pieces oi bread that form their daily ration. Think of it! Is it any wonder Consumption and kindred ills sweep through the stricken country, harvesting the starved orphans left behind by soldiers who died holding back the Hun in the first days of the War. Put your sympathy into practical form. Don't shudder-and then do nothing I While you wait, children are dying. Be generous! Be quick! Make cheques payable _ and send contributions to Belgian Relief Fund (Registered under tha War Charities Act) ^ to your Laced CommHtoe, or to Headquarters i 59 St. Peter St., Montreal.
