The Army of the Future. I t Never in all the Empire' s varied history has she needed so vitally as now the healthy life of every boy and girl bom within her wid-e boundaries, and never before was the work of Dr. Bamardo's Homes and other similar agencies so valuable from a national point of view. For over fifty years the Bamardo Homes have been saving children, and during that time they have fashioned and are fashioning, out of the raw material of utter destitution, ten: of thousands of capable citizens. They have provided 10,715 men for the Great War (6,413 in the Overseas contingents) they have sent fanners to the Dominions, artisans to the workshops; and they always have 300 boys in training for the Navy and Mercantile Marine. From the cities and towns of the British Isles, from the villages and country side, these destitute children come, and under the training of the Homes they grow and flourish till fit and worthy for a place in the Empire s ranks. Large numbers are the children of soldiers and sailors. Shall those children go father- less whose fathers have fought and died for us? An urgent appeal is made on behalf of the children of the Nation-those unhappy and forlorn little enes, soldiers' children, sailors' children, widows' children, nobody's chil- dren those who have known and lost love and happy homes, those who have never known either home or love. 86,747 children in all have been helped by the Bamardo Homes with something of new life and light, and 6,747 of these have been admitted since the great War was launched upon the world. Every year the work grows bigger, every year come fresh admissions and fresh develop- ments, and every year greater expense. Food, clothing, and bare necessities cost more. Dr. Bamardo' s Homes ask for help in training and fitting the destitute little ones to take their places as healthy, upright and honourable citizens in the better world which we hope is coming in the days of Peace. Contributions may be sent to the Honorary Director, Mr. William Baker, M.A., LL.B., Dr. Barnardo's Homes, 18 to 26, Stepney Causeway, London, E. 1. Cheques payable Dr. Barnardo' s Homes and crossed.
