To catch the glow of lore for hu

The Associated Charities is beginning
to raise its third consecutive annual
Christmas relief fund this week, with
that aim in mind. Not only does the
special Christmas relief fund contem
plate furnishing relief and cheer for
Christmas day specifically, but it alms
to follow up the days succeeding Christ
mas with the relief for the poor and
destitute that is just as necessary on
other days as on Christmas day, and
which humanity may forget to give, not
through hardness of heart, but because
of the rush of other events and Inter
ests that crowd in after the Christmas
In 1912, a few weeks before Christ
mas, the Associated Charities ' raised
its first Christmas relief fund, and the
liberality with which the people of
Portland responded to the call set a
standard for many other cities of far
greater population. The total fund at
the end of the holiday season had
reached more than $2000.
Post-Christmas Gifta Made.
Last year Portland's citizens out
did themselves In the generosity with
which they responded to the call from
the Associated Charities for donations
to its special ChrlBtmas relief fund.
At the end of the holiday season the
fund had reached a total of 3700. On
this fund additional contributions were
built up by donations coming at latfir
dates in the year, until the Christmas
relief fund in the past year repre
sented a total donation of $5780.13.
It means a whole lot on Christmas
day to see every poor person in the
city supplied with Christmas cheer and
made happy for that one day at least.
But the delight of the Associated Char
ities was in obtaining a Christmas fund
that did vastly more. It was a fund
that carried the generosity of the donor
far past the merry rush and exuber
ancc of the holiday season itself and
made it possible for some poor
family, weeks after Christmas' day.

hunger and need of the present mo

been made possible my someone a

Here is a brief idea of what the
Christmas relief fund did last year,

Groceries were given to 1230 people
clothing to 1260, fuel to 130 families,

would have been driven out of their
homes, hospital care to 399 people, be
sides meals to nearly 1000 individuals
in Immediate need, and temporary
lodging to many more.
Every penny of the Christmas relief
fund went into actual relief work, and
the relief work was rendered the more
effective by being conducted through
the Associated CharitteB, which has or
ganization and machinery to make pos
sible the most effective service. Every
penny of the Bpecial Christmas relief
fund collected this year will go into
actual relief work, the task of car

Need Greater Than Ever.
Contributions to the fund may be sent
either to R. S. Howard, treasurer of the
Associated Charities at the Ladd & Til
Uon Bank; to V. R. Manning, secretary
of the Associated Charities, 411 Com

Donations of clothing, fuel and gro
cery supplies are to be received also
in the Christmas relief work, and noti
fication of such donations should be
sent to the Associated Charities, 411
The need this season is. if anything,
more pressing than ever before, and
the Charities hopes, if possible, to pro
vide an even greater Christmas relief
fund than that of last year, so that the
poor and destitute people- of the city
may be assured of Christmas cheer,
run through the year."

REDISCOUNT RATE SET
RESERVE BOARD WILL HAKB NO
CHASGB UNTIL SURPLUS KNOWS.
Decrease Might Cause Exportation of
Gold, W hich Body Will Try
WASHINGTON, Nov. 23 Until the
Federal Reserve Board has accurate in
formation on the surplus reserves held
by member banks, it does not expect
to. chang-e the present rates for redis
count of commercial paper.
Present information indicates about
$200,000,000 of surplus reserve in the
member banks in the North and East.
The Board fears that a lower rate of
rediscount might lead to an exporta
tion of gold, which they don't wish at
this time. Until this reserve stock has
been lessened, the rates probably will
be unchanged in these sections.
In the South and West, where much
of the pressure for changed rates origi
nates, the Board's Information shows
less surplus reserves, and it is possible
that changes will he mads there in the
near future. No definite action, how
ever, has been taken in regard to any
suggestions on discount rates.
The Board has decided to aid the 12
reserve banks in accumulating data
bearing on the question of rediscount
rates by requiring a weekly report from
all member banks to the reserve bank
In their district. These reports will
show the condition of the banks Just
as the National banks to the Controller
of the Currency dp now. The first of
these reports will give the Board a
more definite idea of the surplus re
serves of the member banks and have
an influence on the rediscount rates.
