No. 5, August 1918. p. 8 top left. Appeal: LITTLE PRISONERS OF THE SLUMS -- Pining Away for Fresh Air This summer fresh air work among the poor is not only vitally necessary, but an urgent patriotic duty. Thousands of tenement children show today, in their wasted little bodies the effects of last winter's zero weather and coal famine, and months of undernourishment due to the war prices of foods, and add to this the misery and suffering of this summer's record-breaking heat. Yet these helpless little ones are the future hope of America - Won't YOU Help Them -- Please?
