In the churches to the appeal, many
congregations are planning- extended
work on the matter, or have already
been active In support of the fund.
As an example of this, the First
Methodist Sunday school has "already
raised about 82-00 for the fund and

death. Already harrowing reports
have come of the bodies of little ones

and unless aid comes promptly from
the outside world, and particularly
from America, at least a third of this
number must die.
Such a mortality, Charles R. Crane,
United States minister to China, says,
would be the world's worstdisaster.
Less than 9,000,000 died during the
black death plague in Europe cen
turies ago, which calamity is now list
ed as the worst life-taking disaster
humanity has suffered.

perhaps that of no other nation could
do, a spirit of willingness on the part
