A PROCLAMATION. Aid of Syrian and WHEREAS, I have received from the Senate of the United States Preamble. a Resolution, passed July 7 (calendar day, July 10), 1916, reading

as follows: Senate.

“Whereas the attention of the people of the United States has been directed to the helpless situation in which many of the Syrians in the Mount Lebanon district have been placed, and that many thousands have perished from hunger and exposure; and

“Whereas thousands of citizens of the United States in practically every State of the Union were either born in Syria or are the children of Syrians born in that country, and that thousands of American citizens are related by blood and affinity to many of the said suffering and helpless people; and

"Whereas the peopleof the United States have demonstrated their sympathy for the suffering people on all sides in the great European war, having helped in a practical way the people of Belgium, Serbia, Ireland, Poland, and others, as becomes a nation which is neutral in this war and on friendly terms with all the belligerents: Therefore be it

"Resolved, That, appreciating the sufferings of the Syrian people, it is suggested that the President of the United States set aside a day upon which a direct appeal to the sympathy of all American citizens shall be made and an opportunity shall be given for our public-spirited people to contribute to a much-needed fund for the relief of the Syrian people.”

And Whereas, a Resolution was passed by the Congress of the

United States on July 18, 1916, reading as follows: Resolution of Con- “Whereas in countries now engaged in war there are several hunConcurrent Resolu- dreds of thousands of Armenians in need of food, clothing, and tions, p. 4.

shelter; and

“Whereas great numbers of them have been required by conditions growing out of the state of war to leave their homes and their property, deprived of an opportunity to make provision for their most elementary wants, causing starvation, disease, and untold suffering; and

gress.

“Whereas the people of the United States of America have learned with sorrow of this terrible plight of great numbers of human beings and have most generously responded to the cry for help whenever such an appeal has reached them: Therefore be it

“Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), That, in view of the misery, wretchedness, and hardships which these people are suffering, the President of the United States be respectfully asked to designate a day on which the citizens of this country may give expression to their sympathy by contributing to the funds now being raised for the relief of the Armenians in the belligerent countries.”

And Whereas, I feel confident that the people of the United States will be moved to aid these peoples stricken by war, famine and disease; Now, therefore, I, Woodrow Wilson, President of the United Setting, apart Satur
