"We are swamped with donations from people who want to help somebody," says Mis Ida V. Jonti if the Associated Charities, i "We have received checks from people. In other states asking that money be used to help those who would receive little or no Christmas cheer. Omaha people have Veen more than generous. They have telephoned this office for names of needy families and have even co-operated with us ly going In search of those who might have been ' overlooked." A prominent business man went out on Mich a mission. He found a family he thought he could help. He telephoned the Auunrintori rharltles and discovered the amllv was listed for a basket of food tilings Christmas day. "Just forget it, said the business man. "I will take care of them." And he did not wait until Christmas, but went forthwith to a grocery store and ordered a generous bill sent around at once." "And I'll see that they get more on Christmas day and that the kiddies have some presents, too," lio said. One man who has made much money In business in the city, but does not make a great display of charity, although he Is godfather to many children, sent the charities a fat check. "I have heard." lie wrote, "that some of the old people are about to be overlooked. Now, It you need any more money Just let me know and you'll get It." But there were so many men like him that his offer to Blve more had to be refused, as enough had already 'been given,' Help from Other Mates. Over in Iowa is a famfly with relatives In Omaha. These relatives do not ac cept charity, but they are not always ablo to drive the wolf from the door. Bo the head of the family in Iowa mailed a check to the Associated Charities and -ioH hm to "make these people a merry Christmas." "jsee that 100 kids are given presents. wrote one Omaha man and folded In the letter was a check that made the Char it ics gasp. Miss Jonti called him up by telephone and asked if he had any prefer encc or suggestions, but he did not, and left the matter solely with the Charities. A woman telephoned Miss Jonti from l"ort Crook and said: "I want to do something for somebody on Christmas Can't you help me out. And my slater also wants to help." Miss Jonti gave them a list of families who would re ceive no presents and the two good women at once began their mission of artunate.! "It is so hard to find those who really need something and whom you could help on Christmas day," complained one woman over the telephone. She was given the names and addresses of some poor people; and at once telephoned her grocer that her account was open to them and to see that they bought gen' erously. ' . - ' Office Fore la Baas-.
