AMHERST N IIMUTIMI S-TIMES. VOL. II. NO. 71. ISSUED THURSDAY AMHERST, OHIO, THURSDAY, MAY 26. 1921. pW Subscrlptior Price. $2.00 per Year "Sandstone Center ef the World" V WOMAN'S AUXILIARY Tft SELL POPPIES ARE MADE BY FRENCH ORPHANS AND THE PROCEEDS OP SALE ARE FOR THEIR BENEFIT Although the Woman* Auxiliary of Elmer Johnson Post No. 14 has been organized for several months, not many people, unless directly concern ed, are aware of Its existence. The purposes of organising an auxiliary are the same as those of* the Legion Itself. The outstanding reasons helng to help the soldier and his family, should they need help, and to guard the welfare of children. With these purposes in mind the Woman's Auxiliary are going to sell silk poppies Saturday and Sunday pre .ceding Decoration Day for ten cents apiece, the money to go Id the French orphans. These silk poppies are In imitation of the French Held poppy which grows In such abundance there, and are made by the orphans of the French soldiers in order to help the-uiBelveB to a certain extent rather than be entirely dependent on charity. These thousands of French orphans have made and sent to this country Mn the last yon over one million of popples. The red poppy that grows In the fields was chosen by the American Legion as its flower because bo many of our boys are lying in France--their graves graced only by this bright wlWl- flower. It Is r» markably llt|ting, then. that on the day set aside to honor our soldier dead we wear a poppy in me in »ry of the boys in France. The French people are taking care of tho cemeteries of American dead and we ought to feel able to purchase one of these little poppies to help their orphans. The following poem wns written by- Lieut. Col. John McCrae: In Flanders field the poppies blow between the crosses, Row on row, That mark our place: And in the sky the larks still bravely singing, fly, Scarce heard amidst the guns below. We are the dead. Short days ago we lived. * Felt dawn, saw sunsets blow, Loved and were loved. And now we lie in Flanders Fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe!' To you, from failing hands-we throw the torch, Be yours to hold it high! If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep— Though popples grow in Flanders Field We shall not sleep.
