Representatives from thirteen dif- ferent societies and organizations at- tended the meeting of the Associated Welfare League of Lowville at the Library on Monday. The need and the use full ness of the League has been proven by the experience of the two years that it has functioned. Many cases have been found where the child- ren have to be kept out of Bchool be- cause of the lack of clothing warm enough to withstand the severe winter weather. Other cases have been found where there was acute suffering through lack of fuel or food. Many of these cases would never have been dis- covered, it the Welfare League had not been In existence. The greatest need of the Welfare League is for money and second-hand clothing. It has been found that the children es- pecially need under clothing. With ready money the committtee in charge can buy clothing that fits the Individ- ual child. Those who wish to give any money are requested to send their con- tributions to W. F. Patten, the treas- urer of the League. Good, unbroken toys, dolls, food, candy and fruit are acceptable and useful. All donations except money may be sent to the base- menf of St._Peter's church on Shady avenue, and should be there not later than December 20th. In case anyone Is unable to deliver their contribu- tion personally, notify the president oj< the League, Rev. G. L. Murray, or trio chairman of the packing committee, Mrs. Charles Rittis, and the goods will be called for and collected. Any- one knowing of a family or an individ- ual in need is requested to send the name of such family or individual to the President of the League. It is the •wish of the League that no needy per- son be forgotten or overlooked during this Christmas season. The League has had good cooperation other years; It deserves good cooperation this year. It has brought good cheer and com 1 fort to many homes, and hopes ¥ that there will be no cheerless homes with- in its territory this Cfhristmas.
