"It really la surprising how many
calls we have for Chrtstmaa shoes.
We have supplied some and have told
many to oall next Friday, when we
expect to be able to meet all de
mands," stated Secretary Doane of
the Associated Charities.
In this connection she adds that
shoes or money, or orders for shoes,
sent to The Bee tor her work, or to
her direct, will be disposed of to the
best advantage. Most of these calls
for shoes are for children. In many
cases the fathers are out of work or
HI, and in a few cases the bread
winners have left their homes.
The Christmas work of the charities
office Is drawing to the close, which will
be on Friday. Many have been provided
for and each day adds to the total dis
pensation of cheer and comfort.
Children Help Thesaarlvea.
One of the worker of Mra Doane's
department was moved to tears Monday
when she called at a home and found
the mother 111 and five children trying
to do for themselves and their mother.
They were In dire need. Immediate as
sistance was given and a lot of neces
sities will be sent to tide the family over
the Christmas season.
"Gee, lady, it's a peach!" remarked a
small boy when he received a sled from
Mrs. Doane. It was the boy's first sled
and he was so. happy that he felt the
sled to determine whether It was real
or whether he was only dreaming.
A 8-year-old girl received ber first
coat and she, too, was so pleased she
cried In her Joy.
Many Are In Need.
"You would . hardly believe some of
the cases we find unless you were ac
tually in the work and knew the cir
