Mr. and Mrs. Strusz were a faithful and honorable couple, and that they achieved success was due entirely to their own Inherant powers and not to any favors shown them by destiny. Their energy and determination made it possible for them to acquire a fine farm where the family is still engaged in fruit raising.

KASCH Attorney oud Counselor at Law Odd Fellows BuUding North State St. Ukluli. Calif. An Appeal for Help One of the smaller, pluckiest and most highly regarded nations in theVorld, Finland, right now is being invaded by one of the largest nations, Russia, which is hurling its vast military machine at tiny Finland in an effort to completely crush it. In addition to having been condemned by the League of Nations, Russia has been branded an outlaw by nearly the entire world, and expressions of sympathy have poured into Finland, which is making a marvelous stand to drive off the invaders and thereby maintain its independence. But Finland needs more than sympathy. It is not a rich nati(Hi, and does not have the resources to meet Russia on an equal basis. Most of its funds will of necessity be placed into war materials. Thousands of non-combatants have been driven from their homes and are suffering from hunger, sickness and cold. These innocent victims are desperately in need of material assistance. In an effort to alleviate this suffering to some extent, Herbert Hoover, ex-President of the United States, has taken up the work of collecting funds to be sent to Finland. A nationwide drive is being made, which is meeting with remarkable success, and we feel that Mendocino county will want to do its bit in this humanitarian project. Pleased to assist in the work, the Dispatch Democrat is passing on the appeal for funds, and will act as a collection agency. Send in your donations, receipt of which will be acknowledged in tlie paper, and total amount will be forwarded to the proper agency. Every donation will be appreciated, small or large, and will assist the worthwhile cause for which it is intended. Prompt action is essential. Either bring or mail your donation to the Dispatch Democrat office, together' with your name and address.
