Les Monsieur Madame
The poppy day we shall never forget. We must not forget. And next Saturday some of the prominent of Salt Lake women will aid our cause by selling these flowers, symbolic of our hero dead. The days in which American mothers were making in their hearts the supreme sacrifice. The day on which every boy in this country was prepared to give up everything in the noble cause.
But the immediate aim and purpose of the organization is to aid the , homeless orphans in the devastated regions of northern France. And for that cause I have come to Salt Lake. Tomorrow Madame Guerin will speak to the students of the University of Utah at a. In the evening she will speak in French at the Hotel Utah and all who speak French are urged to attend.
In the Assembly hall on the Tabernacle grounds, Thursday night, a general meeting will be addressed.

Hundreds have died, some have been taken care of by the government, but there are more than a million and a half fatherless and in some cases motherless children living in caves, cellars and dugouts.
Many are paralyzed by rheumatism and scores are victims of tuberculosis. Never in the history of the world has such an outrage been forced upon any nation as has been forced upon the people of my country. In one year the Yankees built more factories, hospitals, buildings and promoted industry further and better than my people could have done in an entire generation.
We are the last nation to beg. Now that we have asked for help, we are only asking for help that is needed, and will be appreciated. Every cent of money that is raised in this country for the starving children of France will be sent direct to the French government to be spent in making the lives of the poor motherless children just a little sweeter. The people of France cannot do much to help these conditions. At present 45 per cent of all the properties and earnings of the people are taxed to help remedy conditions.
Saturday has been set aside as the campaign day to raise the fund, and young girls of the city, from the university and all of the local high schools, will canvass the business district asking for donations. If arrangements can be made the girls will also invade Bonneville park during the afternoon. Tomorrow she will visit the local high schools. Friday evening she will talk to the citizens in a public meeting to be held in the Assembly hall.

Mayer, Dr. John A, Widisoe, E. The people of America must not judge conditions in France by what they read, for there is suffering. Although perhaps France made a mistake in not keeping the poor refugees elsewhere, the desire to see their former homes in the devastated regions caused them to return.
With railroad facilities hampered, and with conditions so unsettled, the people are greatly hampered in making their new start in life, and need assistance. Madame Guerin is visiting in Utah to ask for immediate relief for the children of the devasted regions. For four years and a half they have lived in indescribable conditions, she said. Hundreds have died, some have been taken care of by the government, but ,, she said, remain, living in caves, cellars and homes in the ground, paralysed by rheumatism and victims of tuberculosis, Madame Guerin continued. In every state in which the quota is raised each school, club and organization assisting will receive a certificate that will entitle the community to free lectures by Frenchmen who will be sent annually to America.

The citizens will drop their offerings in the box and then at the close of the day the boxes will be opened by the committee and the money sent directly to France by W.
Armstrong, who has been appointed to handle the matter. No certain amount has been set for the individual to give. This will be left entirely up to the donator. Guerin in the campaign throughout the country, stated this morning that a large donation for the individual will not be necessary if everyone that is approached during the day will give something. In the recent drive for funds in Denver, she stated, it was the smaller donations that the girls raised from school children that brought the sum into large figures.
Miss Helen Hanchett, with twenty or more University of Utah girls, will invade Bonneville park during the afternoon and will extract the money from the baseball fans. Madame Guerin visited the West High school and the Roland Hall academy this morning and addressed the members of the student body and faculties of both schools.

Madame Guerin has a big message for the American people and audiences that she has addressed while her in the city have fully appreciated the great work she is doing. The proceeds from the dance will be turned over to the fund. The place of the dance has not been definitely decided upon, but the state capitol looms up as a probably choice of the committee.

Next Saturday all Logan will blossom out with poppies and each poppy will represent a contribution to help the orphan children of France. Like all things that come from France, Poppy day is a little more distinguished than tag day, the American article, but in reality it is the same thing. Every one would rather wear a poppy of red silk than an ordinary tag and the object is one that is wakening sympathy and interest all through the state.
This feeling is due largely to the ardent way in which Madame Guerin, a French lecturer from France has been telling us of the needs of French children. On Tuesday morning she spoke before an interested body of A. Henry Peterson. These two talks, so dramatically given won many friends in Logan for Madame Guerin and the cause for which she is working so nobly.

Guerin of France, accompanied by Georgina G. Guerin is making an appeal to the people of the United States for a little help to feed not the children of France but the devastated sections. In this section the women and children are living in cellars and caves and mines, in fact any hole that will provide a little shelter.
There are four million people there, but , of these are children, , have lost their fathers and mothers by the Germans taking the mothers and older children and scattering them in Germany for work. They made no record of names of smaller children and they have lost even their names. There are many of them crippled by rheumatism through sleeping on the ground and many are tubercular through exposure and all are starving. It is a pitable condition and we must help.
Guerin is a properly accredited agent of the French government and has the endorsement of the governor of Utah as well as the endorsement of our town. She does not handle one cent of the money, our own committee does that, so we know the money shall reach the proper destination. The Salt Lake Herald Republican 25 April reported on her activities in the columns for those cities [sic]:. A special assembly was held at the high school on Thursday afternoon of last week, in order to hear Madame E. As a result of the meeting, Saturday was designated as Poppy day in Brigham. Poppies were sold by the high school girls, the money going to aid the orphans in France.
About twenty young ladies from the High school started on their campaign early in the morning and few people during the day escaped their attack. A house to house canvass was made, besides a thorough canvass of the business section. The children especially were enthusiastic and eagerly gave up their spending money and extra pennies for the cause. Guerin, the French lecturer, was in the Park between trains Thursday.
She spoke at the high school on behalf of the French orphans. Guerin of Paris, accompanied by Mrs Marriott of Ogden, dropped into Park City yesterday, the former coming direct from the scarred and devastated battle fields of France. They bore with them all kinds of recommendations and credentials from prominent citizens and public officials from Governor Bamberger down, and their mission was to effect an organization here, as elsewhere is being done, to intensify and promote that spirit of love and friendship that already exists between the peoples of France and America.
Madam Guerin has made nine voyages across the Atlantic in the interest of this cause and is practically spending her life for the salvation of the suffering and homeless people of her country. She is a splendid public speaker and made an impassioned appeal to the students of the High School for just the pennies they could spare from the luxuries of life, that the orphans of devastated France may know again the pleasure of a full meal. As a result of the visit of these ladies the Atheneum ladies, a good representation of whom were hurriedly assembled to meet them, took the matter in hand, appointed suitable committees and proceeded, with the aid of the high school girls, to offer to every citizen a small insignia to be worn on the lapel of the coat as an evidence that the suffering of French children have not been forgotten.
This small emblem is in the form of an artificial poppy, the little wild flower of Flanders, that grows everywhere over, between and around the graves of our American heroes over there. So, when approached tomorrow by these young ladies, accept the little token, contribute whatsoever you can afford to the worthy cause, pin the poppy on your bosom as an evidence that you have not forgotten the sufferings of the people of Lafayette, the people that held the great beast back till our boys could appear to help save the world for democracy.
Madame Guerin, lecturer in the interests of the fund, spoke to a meeting of the Ladies Municipal council at the Commercial club last night, to emphasize the need of the drive. It was reported that Anna greeted Democrat Wm. Miss Ruby Bryner and Miss Jessie Ballinger will have charge of the work and they will have the assistance of fifty girls from the high school who will sell poppy tags Saturday afternoon.
The workers have the co-operation of the schools of the county and of the churches. Successful poppy drives have been carried out in Salt Lake City, Provo, Ogden, Park City and other towns of the state and Price will do her share willingly. Whenever Anna could not personally accommodate a location, there always seems to have been women willing to represent her in the poppy quest.
We have helped to free France from the iron fist. We must help to free her from disease and death — desert and devastation. The lifting of the German veil from the devastated sections of France has revealed a sad plight. For four years and a half living in cellars and caves has paralyzed the children by rheumatism, thousands are succumbing to tuberculosis each year, many are maimed by shot and shell and poisoned by the German gas.
There are children under their teens who have lost their minds through the terrible scenes they have been compelled to witness. Children have been separated from their parents and have forgotten their names and can never be reunited with their families. All are starving and must be fed. There is only one hope and that is to appeal to the splendid generosity of the American people. Nouns are words that name a person, place, or thing.
