FROM Constantinople College for Women
An American College in the War-Zone needs your support. Open in
the face of many difficulties. Needs more funds to meet larger deficit owing to war. Many students in special need of relief
Will You Help? Five Reasons Why You Should Support Constantinople College
т Because it is the largest and best institution for women
in the Balkans and has for years provided a liberal
American education for the girls of the Levant. SECOND
Because it is one of the strongest factors for Peace in the Near East. Four hundred students this year of fourteen nationalities are living together in peace, learning the true spirit of tolerance and the virtue of political as
well as individual harmony. THIRD Because the budget is extraordinarily large during these
war times. Food prices are prohibitive; coal is very expensive; all supplies are difficult to obtain. In order to keep open, which is necessary for its very existence,
the College must have your help. FOURTH Because it is at present harboring Armenian girls, who
have felt the effects of the persecution of their race, and have looked to an American institution as the safest place
in time of trouble. FIFTH
Because the influence of American philanthropy is at stake. Since 1871 Imerica has been supporting this College for women in Turkey. Shall war conditions now force it to be closed? Shall this work suffer for mere lack of funds ? Shall American support fail at this critical moment?
THE ANSWER IS WITH YOU $5 will mean membership in the Constantinople College Association. $50 will pay tuition for one day student for one year. $1,200 will pay a professor's salary. $5,000 will endow a scholarship for one resident student.

PRESS OF ISAAC GOLDMANN COMPANY, NEW YORK
PLATFORM We believe it to be desirable that a League among Nations should be organized for the following purposes: 1. A World Court, in general similar to the Court of Arbitral Justice
already agreed upon at the Second Hague Conference, should be, as soon as possible, established as an International Court of Justice, representing the Nations of the World and, subject to the limitations of treaties, empowered to assume jurisdiction over international questions in dispute that are justiciable in character and
that are not settled by negotiation. 2. All other international controversies not settled by negotiation
should be referred to the Permanent Court of Arbitration at the Hague, or submitted to an International Council of Conciliation, or Commissions of Inquiry, for hearing, consideration and recommen
dation. 3. Soon after peace is declared, there should be held either “a con
ference of all great Governments," as described in the United States Naval Appropriation Act of 1916, or a similar assembly, formally designated as the Third Hague Conference, and the sessions of such international conferences should become permanently periodic, at shorter intervals than formerly. Such conference or conferences should (a) formulate and adopt plans for the establishment of a World
Court and an International Council of Conciliation, and (b) from time to time formulate and codify rules of international
law to govern in the decisions of the World Court in all cases, except those involving any constituent State which
has within the fixed period signified its dissent. 4. In connection with the establishment of automatically periodic ses
sions of an International Conference, the constituent Governments should establish a Permanent Continuation Committee of the conference, with such administrative powers as may be delegated to it by the conference.

The officers of The World's Court League cordially invite you to join them in preparing the way for more just and harmonious international relations after the war.
Forty-four nations have already voted for the Court of Justice which will be the chief corner-stone of a new world structure. While a League of Nations presupposes a better adjustment of international questions, the greatest assurance of security and durable peace rests in a World Court.
The platform of the League is in harmony with the great work accomplished by the two Hague Conferences and with the treaties which have been made by the United States with thirty nations, providing for delay and inquiry in case of any international difficulty.
To advance and concentrate public opinion the League publishes THE WORLD COURT MAGAZINE. A payment of one dollar makes you a member of The World's Court League and furnishes the magazine for one year.
The League also desires contributions of from five to one thousand dollars for the support of this world-wide movement which is intended to make another war with its horrors and distress unlikely if not impossible.
