Big Boost Sought
For China Famine
Fund This Week
a : tt j .n:i..
AQirricaiiB urgcu 10 i a
Pal in China for a Day"
As Means of Affording
From coast to coaM and from bor
der line to border line, Americans
who respond to the most urgent call
vet issued by the American commit
tee for China famine fund will "pick
a pal in China for a day" this week.
This period will be known as "China
famine week," in direct response to
cablegrams from the American com
mittee in Peking urging increased
subscriptions with which to purchase
food to keep starving Chinese farm
ers and their families from devour
ing growing grairv. during the next
several weeks. Recent cables also
advised that all funds received have
been expended for supplies which
will have been distributed and con
sumed by May 1.
Although the American committee
contemplated no drive in the cus
tomary sense, a season of special ap
peal was decided as obligatory be
cause of the messages of imperative
According to the national commit
tee in New York, local committees
in practically all sections of the
country have responded and will join
in the "China famine week" activi
ties. Churches of many denominations,
which already, through the American
committee or their mission boards
have contributed more than $1,500,
000, will be specially active next Sun
day. In addition, fund committees
and other-organizations through their
members, will, figuratively, pick a
pal in China for a day, the thought in
the background being that each per
son responding to the call will send
to the China Famine Fund, in care
of W. Dale Clark, treasurer, Nebras
ka committee, Orrmha National bank,
what each would spend on a friend
in one day, thus saving one or more
victims of what has been described
as the worst famine in history.
The president of China recently
lidded his appeal to that of the Ameri
can committee in a cable in which he
detailed the critical situation which
will exist during the next several
weeks intervening before the aud
iences in the last week by Alfred S.
Stt, the new minister from China to
the United States, who headed a fly
ing corps of speakers which visited
middle! western and eastern cities in
the interest of the famine fund.
Vernon Munroe, treasurer of the
China famine fund, announced that
nearly $3,600,000 had been subscribed
directly through the American com
mittee up to last night. Workers
for the fund express the hope that
this sum .will be doubled during a
"China famine week." In addition
to "the total already recorded, the
churches and the Arherican Red
Cross have each forwarded $1,000,000
to their workers in the famine areas.
Mayor Makes His Final
nea in campaign at
University of Omaha
''The engineers promise that $500,
000 of the money spent for the free
bridge will go to local labor," as
serted Mayor Ed P. Smith at the
University of Omaha yesterday. The
university chapefwas crowded with
outsiders who wished to hear Mr.
Smith's last speech as mayor.
"The Dodge street cut is the sec
ond largest street grading improve
ment ever put through in the United
States," he said, speaking of the
work of Rov N. Towl's department
of parks, "the paving of Dodge
street will be finished by July 4.
"When Towl's plan for widening
Twenty-fourth street is carried
through, Twenty-fourth street will
be the finest thoroughfare in the
middle west. '
"Due to the,benefaction of Harold
Gifford, the work of the planning
board, and the vision of Roy Towl
we shall have a river drive better
than anything west of the Berk
"You can start from the Atlantic
and go to the Pacific on the Lincoln
highway and the only place you have
to pay toll is Omaha," asserted the
mavor. He argued that the free
bridge would enable Omaha to se
cure mo ce trade from western Iowa.
