WAR ORPHANS HELP
New Rational Society Set on
Foot in New Tork With
Definite Purpose in View.
ODS DEBT TO FRANCE
With an organization remarkable
(or its completeness, considering the
very short time that has elapsed since
its inception, the "American Society
for the Relief of French War Or.
phani" has opened permanent head
quarters in the Equitable building, 120
Broadway, New York City.
The deeds of Lafayette and
Rochambeau and their gallant sol
Aim are chronicled in American his
tory and form some of the brightest
pages. I he debt ot America to
France for its generosity, which
Washington declared "must inspire
every citizen of the states with senti
ments of the most unalterable grati
tude," has never been repaid. It is
v possible that it never will be, but the
Exigencies of the terrible war that for
more than two years has been de-
. vastating Europe will enable Ameri
cans, out of their prosperity and
abundance, to show, in a measure,
their "unalterable gratitude."
Orphans in Plenty,
There are already in France more
than 200,000 children made fatherless
by the war and in extreme need of
help. The French government, over
burdened by the enormous expense of
carrying on the war, is unable to
make, a sufficient allowance for the
proper maintenance of these war or
phans. Its stupendous burden will,
long after the war, preclude the pos
sibility of adequate aid to the families
of dead and incapacitated soldiers,
and it is hoped and confidently be
lieved that Americans will cheerfully
share the burden, by giving, each ac
cording to his means, enough to care
' for ana educate the orphans of France
and enable them to become self-supporting.
The American society will have a
nation-wide membership, and will co
operate with existing relief societies
in the United States and in France
wherever it is found possible. No ef
fort will be made to bring French or
phans to this country, or to create
new agencies for their care in France.
It will work, in such a manner that a
personal sympathetic connection will
be established between the donors of
funds in this country and the needy
orphana of France.
Division of Membership.
Membership in the American so
ciety is divided into four classes
founders, who will pay $500 or more
a year; benefactors, who will con
tribute $250 annually; sustaining
members, who will give $100 a year,
and contributing members, who will
' contribute less than $100 per annum.
Contributions in any amount which

Church Commission Will Say
Some Plain Things About
Sunday's Free Will
COUNCIL MEETS SOON
St. Louis, Nov. 25. (Special.) It
is learned on unquestioned authority
that the commission on evangelism
of the federal council of churches
will say some very plain things con
cerning the Rev. William A. Sunday's
free, will" offering, in its report to
be made to the council at its forth
coming meeting in St. Louis. More
than that the commission will recom
mend, it is said, that all evangelists,
Sunday with the others, be taken
charge of by the churches themselves,
according to religious bodies to which
they Deiong, tneir nnances reguiaicu
and supervised, and evangelists paid
The commission will tell the coun
cil, it is said, that almost all profes
sional evangelists have united in ex
pression of a desire that they be put
on an official basis, as are ministers,
and money matters be taken off their
hands. The commission does not
state whether Sunday has himself
joined in the appeal, but it is infor
mally stated that he has not done so.
The commission will say, it is known,
that some measure ot harm is done by
the Sundajr "free will" offering plan.
Public criticism of it is known to be
?:eneral, and it is not mitigated by the
act that Sunday gives much of it
awav. It is certain that the council
will adopt the recommendations of its
Flaws in Management
Other reports to the council will
show unhealthy conditions in church
management. There will be presented
a careful survey of the whole state of
Ohio. . I hat survey will make plain,
it is known, that tremendous sums of
money are lost in so-called Christian
work. There are places that are
over-churched, and also places ' that
are overlooked. In not a few places
where large sums of money should
be spent only very small sums are
available, while in other places money
is poured out and wasted. The coun
cil will a)so hear that throughout the
whole United States there has been
very serious deterioration of family
religion. Instead of the war making
Americans more religious, as it has
done in France and England, pros
perity or other cause seems to have
made, so the council will hear, inroads
upon the church in the home and the
home in the church. The council will
hear that something must be done
immediately. Conditions are : more
serious in" cities of New England and
the middle west, and less so in the
south and on the Pacific coast.
Propositions to be put up to the
council include one to get into the
temperance cause in behalf of work
ingmen, and to take hold of the plans
for the saving of human lives, espe
cially in factories where machinery is
run. lhe saving ot lite by all possi
ble means wills however, become a
part of the tasks of American
churches as it has not heretofore
been, if the council takes action it is
expeeted to take. In -this line the
council will hear from a commission
of education in the public schools, the
Uary and other plans.
It seems the council has been in
constant touch, since Europe went to
war, with the churches of Germany,
France and Russia, and of course
England.- Certain things the German
chancellor has said in the Reichstag
have been from relations with the
council, and with the churches of
Germany. Plans are perfected, and
will be acted upon in St. Louis,, for
larger work by Christian churches in
America and in all European belliger
ent nations immediately the war ends.
The St. Louis meeting is an executive
one, coining every four years, and its
date is December J, continuing that
week, William Jennings Bryan is to.
