Poor Kiddies' Appeal Meets
Instant Response From
City's More Fortunate
Youngsters-f-Tables Piled
Banta Claus' Store House at COS Clitat
nut direct, though only 0110 day old, and
k fearfully rainy, sleety day at that, al
ready has taken on nn appearance of a
jreat treasure room,
i The appeal of the poor chlldron at
home, whose plight Ii not nearly so spec
tacular as that of the llttlo Belgian
youngster, but Is quite aa real, has met
with an Instantaneous response, and es
tirday the Santa Claus Lady had alt she
could do to take enre of the numerous
precious bundles whleh the parcel post
man and the express company emptoya
tumbled out of their wagons.
The two tables which Banta Claus ban
provided to hold the offerings are
piled high with lovely doilies anil toys
that llttlo Philadelphia glrla and bojo
have sent In. There are wonderful forts
with dapper soldiers marching about In
them, designed to set somo youngster's
heart dancing wild with Joy; there are
whole sets of dainty doll dishes, animals
enbugh to fill a good-sized menagerie,
and even somo practical gifts of warm
clothing nnd underucar.
Every child In Philadelphia Is Invited to
come to tho Store House and see the gifts
which anta Is going to hive distributed
on Christmas morning In the Public and
Kveni.vo Lkdcjeii automobiles.
Yesterday Charles and Dorothy Young,
children of Charles W. Young, sent a
huge box containing a half-dozen dolls,
a So-cart,for a real baby, a pictcntlous
fort and a wonderful menagerie. From
a practical youngster from Newark, N.
J came two sweaters, a pair of rubber
overshoes and several sets of woolen un
derwear. Little Dorothy Parker, who, according
to a letter from her grandmother, Is "an
invalid who cannot walk very much,
taking two to help her In her chair or
to put her at the table and has very
little use of her hands or arms," has con
tributed several beautiful dollies, which
he dressed alt by herself after much
Ealnstaklng labor, and a collection of
ooks that she packed for "the poor little
And little Sara and Ethel Stafford, who
evidently had no toys left from their
last year's supply, sent a whole dollar
to the Sahta Claus lady, requesting her
to buy somo nice new toys for the poor
llttlo girls and boys.
An Incident which shows how eagerly
some of the kiddles are looking forward
to a Christmas which Is -going to be a
real, Christmas to them perhaps the first
they have over had was demonstrated
yesterday when a mite of a boy walked
into the Store House and asked what he
Would have to do In order to be very
sure of "gettln' somethln' from Santy's
automobile on Christmas morning?" Ho
had no umbrella, but had come a long
way In order to ask this Important query.
"Be a good boy," sajd tho Santa. Claus
lady, taking Ida nlmo, ''and I rtm sure
he will bring you something."
"I'd like It to be that horse and cart."
ho said, and his big brown eyes glued
themselves on a wonderful toy on tho
table, "but of course If there ain't enough
of thorn to go aroundVIM take.somethlnc
"else," -
' So that, there will be enough toys to
so mound every child is asked to give
somo little contribution to Santa's Store
House a penny, a nickel, a discarded
toy so that this Christmas will be a less
one-sided affair than Is usually the case,
o that It will be a day for all children
Instead of Just for the chosen few.

llorthwest Business Men's Associa
tion Adopts Formnl Protest.
The proposed site for the municipal
stadium In a ravine in Woodland Ceme
tery, as suggested by George E. Nltzche,
recorder of the University of Pennsyl
vania, was opposed last night by a com
mittee of the Northwest Business Men's
Association. The committee dratted a
formal protest to be sent to the Mayor
and Councils, and this was authorized by
the association.
Besides opposing the Woodland Ceme
tery land as a site for the "proposed
tadlum. the committee reported unfavor
ably on the plan to use one of the Com
mercial Museum buildings for the conven
tion hall. This was suggested as Dart
of the plan of the Army and Navy Com
mittee pwsented by E. 3. Berlet at the
jovun, league meeting last Thursday.
Satisfaction was expressed that the
Army and Navy Committee had chosen
the same site as that recommended
by the Cdmprehensive Plans Committee,
north of the G Irani avenue bridge.
The George E. Nitiche plan, "entirely
Ignores the Snyders' Woods site, 33d and
Oxford streets, recommended by the Com
prehensive Plans Committee," it was
pointed out in the association report.
No fault was found with the plan to
locate the Commercial Museum in a new
building on the Parkway.

2000 William Penn Pupils
Taboo "Cinnamons" and
Pickles to Buy Gifts for
Poor. v
Two thousand girls, students nt the
Wlllla Penn High School, vlll deny
themselves pickles ami cinnamon buns
until Christmas, so they may have funds
to buy toa for nn equal number of kin
dergarten pupils.
This will be In accordance with a "per
sonal sacrifice" plan devised by the
Students' Association, of which Miss
Ileba Kline Is president. Homes that
would otherwlso be devoid of sunshine
will be illuminated Ulirough the efforts
of this army of Misses Santa Claus.
Pickles and cinnamon buna! TheBe are
the most Important elements In a high
school pupil's luncheon, but without
hesitation tho 2000 girls have reached the
heroic conclusion to fast from them. In
consequence there will be a drum for
Charlie and a baseball bat for Jack and
dolls for Kitty and Anna.
The matter of dressing will be left to
a committee of experts. And each Imi
tation baby will bo garbed in laces, for
this Is to be no mean affair. The In
structions of Miss Kline were that It
should nil bo kept a seciet, but girls ill

A Benlly Unusual, Singular Youth
Whose Qualification's Telling
, tho Truth.
"Founs man, 32, no education, no ability, no
experience, not ambltloua, deslrrs a position
with a brilliant future. E Oil), Ledser Central,"
Somewhere a young man who Is shy of
ambition, ability, pluck and desire to
work; who has In his heart for these facts
no contrition and openly says ho Is anx
ious to shirk, Is waiting In tranquil and
'soft Indecision for somo one to give him
a lucrative placo; and meantlmo ho's
chuckling in scorn and derision at those
who run hard In life's haphazard race.
"E 619" Is the cloak that the fellow has
taken to keep off the crowd from his gato
that surely1 would rush for n youth with
so mellow an outlook on life and so honest
and straight. In truth, ho Is candid and
naught of a hedgcr who seeks for a Job
through a well written ad set forth to tho
city this morn by the Ledoeh; In truth,
ho Is frank, or a Jocular lad.
Ho that as It may, he Is Becking employ
ment thnt holds forth a future unruffled
,nd gay; that will not cut Into his lazy
enjoyment nor ask him to Work when he
wishes to play; a Jqb that will let him be
free as the breezes, that will not demand
of him knowledge or brain; alas, if it
does, opportunity coascs; he openly says
he has neither to strain.
He openly says he has no education, and
this should chdear him to men who Beek
aid; who plqks up a worker without
aberration about the stupendous, com
mendable grade of what's In his head Is
In luck, thcro's no doubting. Big business
should rush for this straightforward
youth, who, devious methods of other men
flouting, comes out in an ad with the
wholo of tho truth.

That's "Dad
Because you live with him all the
year 'round he doesn't seem like a ro
mantic figure. But without him there
wouldn't be any Christmas.
He pays for the turkey, the tree
and the trinkets. Sometimes it comes a
little hard, but he "doesn't like to disap
point the folks."
When you ask him what he wants
for himself he says:
"Oh, don't bother about me. There
isn't anything I want. Better save your
money or spend it on some one else."
And too often you do spend it on
some one else.
, Don't take him, at his word when he
says he doesn't want anything. He wants
many things, but he is leaving a loophole
of escape for people small enough to
crawl through.
The Wanamaker Stores for Men are
filled with things men like not the things
women think men like but the things men
buy for themselves. As gifts, they can
not be surpassed, for besides telling of
your regard they save a man the expense
of getting' them some other time.
