"Jee-nmalem!" said Billy. "Is It as bad as that? Say wait a mlmito." And Billy sat down at his
desk and dictated his first letter of recommendation. He recommended these victims of famine and deportation
to the sympathies and pocketbooks of lie people of America.
"There," be aaid, "deliver that to the O. S. U. And no . you fellows, net busy and come across."

But he agreed to listen.
He did, and either the talker was a
Ucm1 one, or Billy's mind is one of those
1 but takes words and nickes pictures of
them, because, tired as he was he began
to do more than listen. Unconsciously
be went through a tew nf those fervent
gestures that he uses when he dares the
devil to come out and fight, and the
lines in his lean face set.
' Billy already knew the Armenians
nere in need almost everybody knows
that. But he bad not realized just how
badly in need they were until after he
Itnd finished his sermon in the Detroit
Inbernacle and was resting at the pa
latial home of 8. K. Kresge, a man came
to see him with the fresh story of their
sufferings and necessities.
"I get you," he interrupted. "It
never struck me so strong before- The
Armenians are in outlaw, company,
The big leagues have shirk their ap
plication a pigenhule.
' Let me see the records erorrs, as
sists, and exerythiug," he commanded.
Out of the interviewer's pocket came
letters from Armenia, from Lord Bryce
ml other investigators, figures telling
of the death of almost a million Chris
tians, massacred or deported, and fig
ures showing the contributions of more
than a million dollars by Americans for'
the relief of the million or more desti
tute Armeniuns who survive in the Ara
Billy looked at them all briefly. Ma
Sunday, wifely soul, was on his trail.
Billy had only one alternative.
"I can't read the whole official
score," he said, thrusting the letters
and pamphlets and figures back to his
interviewer, "You go through it, all of
it, for me, quick. Write me oTut a state
ment of the hits and plays and fouls and
all, and I'll sign it in a hurry. 'I'll put

game before it's over. We've gotto

So the interviewer went through all
the material hastily he knew it well al
ready and pounded out on a. borrowed
typewriter a statement for Billy to
sign, as nearly in the words he thought
Billy would like to use as he could get
Back he tramped to Billy's room, across
the thick Persian carpets covered with
the muddy prints of feet that had
trumped up the steps to get Billy 's mes
sage of salvation, across the spacious
reception rooms, where the same per
sons before him had left their track.
Billy was waiting. "Let me lamp
it," he said, and then he took a pencil
and made so' many alterations that lit
tle was left.
"No slang and baseball lingo in
this," said Billy. "I want every one,
high or low, rich and poor, to read this,
ami 1 don 't want them tu think it
came from me in any spirit of levity.
It 's got to be in parlor Knglish, as
good as nny Dr. Johnson ever spilled,
you understand f It's got to be the
gilt edged variety or none at all "
So out went all the slang and vivid
phrases a la Sunday. What he finally
wrote is being printed all over the
country today. What's more, Billy
is taking a collection in the tabernacle
in Detroit, the proceeds to go to Ar
menian and Syrian Belief.
"I never endorse anything that's

Most Tragic in History.
Nothing more tragic, in modern his

Bryce, ruinous Knglish statesman, and
former Ambassador to the I'nited States
than the killing off of the Armeniuns.
