STRETCHING forth her hands to all in nedd; to Jew or Gentile, black or
white; knowing no favorite, yet favoring all.
Ready and eager to comfort at a time when comfort is most needed. Helping
the little home that's crushed beneath an iron hand, by showing mercy in a
healthy, human way; re-building it, in fact, with stone on stone; replenishing
empty bins and empty cupboards; bringing warmth to hearts and hearths too
Seeing all things with a mother's seventh sense that's blind to jealousy and
meanness; seeing men in their true light as naughty children—snatching, bit-

they write, than Boche steel or lead.
She's warming thousands, feeding thousands, healing thousands from her
store; the Greatest Mother in the World—the Red Cross.
Your help is needed-^give till the heart says stop.
