DISTRICT FAR BEHIND
IN RED CROSS QUOTA
Only $47,000 Received To Date,
Lea-ring A Defidt For
Capital of $53,000.
The SOS was flashed today by
the District chapter of the Red Cross.
To date only ?47,000 has been re
ceived by the chapter, which means
a deficit of ?53,000, since the Dis
trict's quota was fixed at ?100.000.
Every resident of Washington who
has the Interest of the Red Cross at
heart and who has not already sub
scribed to the war-time relief fund
to aid the suffering peoples of Eu
rope, is asked to send in a monetary
contribution as a Thanksgiving offer
"Washington has been called upon
to give only one-half of 1 per cent of
the total amount called for in the
United States to complete the war
time program of the American Red
Cross,"' said Charles Henry Butler,
who is on duty at District headquar
"Only 500 of the half-million popu
lation of the District have given more
than ?5 each.
"The need for funds is apparent
to everyone who is familiar with the
reports of conditions in Europe at
this time. Children are starving,
many thousands of families are in
dire need of clothing and medical at
tention, and, above all, after they
have been clothed and fed. they need
home training and care of the sick."
Service Mea Nee-S* Help.
In the District there are several
thousand soldiers, sailors, and ma
rines in Walter Reed Hospital, St.
Elizabeth's, and the naval hospitals.
To these the Red Cross is "the great
est mother in the world."
Returns are still coming in from
the Thanksgiving Victory Red Cross

A German commission is in Chicago
trying- to get foodstuffs for Germany.
The word "get" is used advisedly in
stead of "buy." Purchase the com
missioners would, but with American
producers it is a question of tender
for the supplies.
The commission tenders about $45,
000,000 Chinese bonds and some South
American mortgages. When tho
worth-marketable or negotiable of
these will have been appraised it is
likely there will be sent from Chi??
go to Germany a large consignment
of grain and provisions.
German government bonds or
marks are not offered?for a patent
reason. But the securities of China,
Argentina, Brazil, and Chile should
be acceptable once the price is
agreed upon. How these values came
into the possession of the German
government is not stated. They were
probably acquired from individual and
Institutional interests in Germany.
Chicago in the negotiations will be
liberal with the commissioners; a
liberality actuated by the necessitous
conditions in the new republic, for
these have been understated rather
than overstated by public cablegrams.
Private advices from Berlin and oth
er points In Germany are pitiful in
their descriptions of under-feeding,
personal misery, and general destitu
The Germans are anxious to reach
a plane of activity, but flrst of all
they must have the physical streng'h
to work as they would. At present
they are undernourished, ar? in want
of fats, meat and force-imparting
cereals. Sufficient food Is tbe creas
ing consideration; the rest?raw ma
terial other than coal and iron?is
at the moment of secondary Impor
tance, though leading government
officials are striving to give Germany
some sort of credit standing abroaJ.
For one thing a capital tax levy nf
65 per -cent has been definitely an
nounced. The Ebert regime Is an
especial stickler for a tax on war
made wealth?that is new capital
that accumulated under war condi
tions. Ebert himself is convinced
that the sum raised by such a method
will be Insufficient to meet tbe urgent
requirements of the situation.
GeaeraU Levy Alter-aatlve.
A general levy, involving a valua
tion of all accumulated weath on its
present value. Is the only practical
alternative to a dangerously high In
come tax, he contends.
Tbe levy is to be graduated and
need not be paid in a single year.
There are objections to every course
and hardships in every tax, but there
is probably no safer course than to
pay off a large portion of a war debt
by an effort which materially lightens
the burden of interest and renders
more secure that part of a national
debt which must wait for the slow
operations of the sinking fund.
Of economic interest Is the fact the
middle men are eliminated in the cur
rent negotiations for foodstuffs. Eng
land haa also dispensed with an Inter
mediary In purchases abroad for Eng
lish account. Both the German and
British governments now buy from
the producer and sell to the ultimate
consumer. The plan forefends graft
and high prices and is expeditious.
All sales in this and other countries
to England must be made through the
LOCAL STOCK MARKET.
