beg Santa Claus to give to a boy or girl In Europe one of the gifts that is
intended for you.
'Yes," I hear you say. "I will be Santa Claus to the poor little

They will not.
England and France and Germany intend to salute the boat that is
carrying your gift, not to stop it. Your ship will be the ship of good will.
It will be Santa Claus' ship, and all the countries at war will dip their
flags to it as such.

look after all other details. It will organise a bureau whfch will answer

The Bee will see that your gift reaches the boat that will take It to

presents from tbe children of America? It will be officered and manned
by the fathers of little boys and girls, who will take every care that it safely
reaches tbe countries which are sunk in the want of war. Everybody who
sees it will know what it is. For it will fly two flags. One will be your
