An estimate of :tT0,00-i,000 bushels of
corn and wheat Is the latest Govern
ment statement of their year's yield
for Nebraska. And It Is Governor
Samuel It. McKelvlo who says "In view
of the bountiful crops here and the
continued condition of destitution nud
suffering In the Near Kast, I have no
doubt that this campulgn (Harvest
Grain Appeal) Is worthy of the sub
stantial support of Nebraska people at
the present time."
Thousands and thousands of boys
and girls, children of onco happy and
prosperous farmers of the Russian
Caucasus and the Near Kast arc
starving today, for night has fallen
again in these lands of one of the old
est agricultural races.
Last winter Nebraska farmers In
twenty counties gathered and shipped
enough corn to make $10,000 worth
of corn grits and Hour that was loaded,
together with rice from Southern
farmers, beans from other states and
more corn products from Iowa and
Kansas, on the steamer "Datchet"
which sailed from New Orleans, Louis
iana and later unloaded its precious
enrgu at Itatoum In the Russian Cauca
sus. Cablegrams Reveal Conditions.
A recent cablegram from Mr. Vlckrey,
General Secretary of the Near Hast
Belief, wlio Is in the Near Kast, tells of
the arrival of this ship, for he says:
"Saw Pateliet unloading food sup
plies Itatoum last week also passed
three solid tralnloads speeding from
Batomn direct to our warehouses Alex
andropol and Erlvnn where we now
have over twenty thousand more home
less children who will perish If we do
not provide for them. 'Children outside
our orphanages were dying on streets
of starvation while we were there In
August. AVlntcr will bring Indescribable
suffering. (Every pound of Hour, rice,
beans, -cornflour nr hominy on Datchet,
Esther Dollar, or other relief ship
means life to some child Or helplosi
exile. People naturally industrious
and hell) themselves wherever when
ever possible but continuous warfare
prolonged exile and occupation of ter
ritory liy enemy foives until loo late
to plant crops, have rendered refugees
destitute and helpless. All supplies
are kept under continuous control .f
experienced American relief workers,
and economical effective distribution
to starving refugees is amnio. Noel
In a second cablegram from Con
stantinople, he writes:
"Conditions in Armenia this year In
describably worse than last year due to
occupation of land by enemy forces un
til too late for adequate crops. Minimum
budget fifteen million doners to main
tain children In orphanages and pres
ent relief activities. Mmost unlimited
large sums required for adequate re
lief of refugees and dependents."
Contributions Must Continue.
Millions of dollars for llnse suffer
ing people have been given and must
continue to be given by the happy
and prosperous dwellers of our great
cities ami towns. Those so situated, In
Nebraska last fall and winter gave
over .$125,000. This summer they
are giving and during the coming fall
and winter they will continue until
they have more than equalled their
generosity of the past.
The farmers of America, seeing
their bountiful and Immense crop, are
offering as their share, ft.000,000
bushels of grain to the cause and the
need for foodstuffs lo save men, wo
men and children of the stricken na
tions and tills Is paramount In order to
prevent wholesale famine this winter.
Dump 50,000,000 Bushels?
Every bushel of corn or wheat Inken
out of Nebraska will help to stlffeti
the local market. And as former Sec
retary of Agriculture Carl Vroomau
once said "The American farmer could
dump ftO.OOO.OOO bushels of com In the
ocean and it would not be missed hut
It would help the corn market," and
then he added "Why dump the corn?
hotter give it lo those sinning people
and the result would he the same.''
Certainly it would be the same, but
plus a warm glowing feeling In the
heart of the Ameiican farmer, because
I e would realize the joy of helping
fellow farmers of the Russian Cau
casus and Near Kast.
Already every grain producing state
in the union Is hard at work. West
Virginia farmers In a state that Is
mostly all rocks, coal, oil and gas, have
Just raised ten cars of corn and wheat
and they buy corn and wheat of other
states for their home consumption.
Nebraska bus helped In part, hut we
must do (he equal of other grata
states. Iowa will give J02 curs of corn
and wheat, Illinois 270, Kansas 201,
South Dakota 107.
Nebraska has been asked for 200
ears, or less than one bushel out of
