H LaClo r, chairman of the Fayette County Red Cross Chapter, who announced that it the suggestion ot President Roosevelt, chapters throughout the county were joining in the appeal. "In asking our community to assist 'ti raising this fund," Dr LaClair said," there is little need to emphasize appalling conditions existing iround Shanghai and other cities, in- as much as newspipcrs, ncwsreels and radio have vividly pictured con- C 'ions that exist." He said that this money would be iillocatcd to relief agencies and hospitals already existing, and that a committee ot American business men in China, appointed by the American Ambassador, Nelson T Johnson, would be formed to distribute the fund. No personnel will be sent from the United States 'In addition to the urgent need for food, shelter, and warm clothing, one ot the great needs in China at the present time is for medical assistance," Dr. LaCIair said "Great danger exists that epidemics may break out." Admiral Gary T. Grayson, national Red Cross chairman, s-iid American oQMals in China had informed him that 650,000 sick and homeless persons were crowding the International Settlement and Greater Shanghai at the present time, with many times that number scattered throughout coastal and interior cities, townb and villages that have been devastated. The chairman also pointed out that lack of adcquitc housing facilities for the homeless was aggravating the health problem, and that existing public shelters had long been ovci-crowded, resulting in thousands of homeless being forced to huddle under straw shelters without sufcicnt protection from inows and cold rains sweeping over the country. Alleys and doorwajs in the towns and cities were crowded with bewildered men, women and children, Americans on the scene reported and since railway services had been disrupted there was no way to evacuate them to other areas "An offer of assistance to the Japanese and Chinese Red Cross societies was made last August by the International Red Cross Committee at Geneva The Japanese Society replied that their resources were adequate to deal with their situation, but the Chinese stated that they very much needed outside assistance " "The Red Cross has become an international symbol o£ mercy," Dr. LaCIair said, "and there is great need for our cooperation at this time, am sure that our appeal will mecl with a generous response, and thai we who live in such a fortunate land will assist the suffering and homeless thousands in China " Checks should be made payable to the American Red Cross and mailcc to the Fayette County Chapter, Un- lonlown Postofllce Building, Uniontown, Pa, O.

SOESTDYK, Netherlands, Jan 31. --Princess Juliana, heir to the ;hrone of the House of Orange, gave birth to a gill today, her first child The baby, provided there is no future male child, was destined to carry into the third generation the line of queens ot this sturdy nation of 8,500,000 people.

After the main service was dismissed an "after meeting" was held which again filled the church.

ONE of the first things that the family learns, after an electric range has been installed, is that everything tastes better! And mother learns that she is able to get these fine results with far less work than ever before. Electric cooking requires very little water-- in some cases none at all. It is "sealed-in" cooking. Juices don't steam away. They remain in the foods and develop into rich, fine flavors. Electric heat is measured-- there is a correct heat for all foods. You can depend on an electric range to do the job right-- without the necessity of watching and testing. That's why it is so easy. Users will tell you that they prefer this modern cooking method-- that they're cooking electrically "for keeps!" jf Go to the Electric Stores and See the H.
