850 DISASTER DEATH
TOLL FOR ONE YEAR
Red Cross Gives $1,871,000 Re
lief When 65,000 Families
Are Made Homeless.
Forty-three disasters, resulting In
tho death In the United States of SCO
persons and thu Injury of 2,1300 called
for emergency relief measures and
tho expenditure of 11,871,000 by the
American Ked Cross during the fiscal
year ending .lune 80, 1021, says an
announcement based upon the forth
coming annual report of the Red Cross.
These disasters caused property dam
age estimated ut $30,000,000, affected
sixty-seven communities and rendered
6G.000 families homeless.
The year's dlsustera were of vary
ing types, Including several which pre
viously had tuner been thought of
as fulling within that classifica
tion. The Ked Cross furnished
relief In seventeen fires of magnitude,
five floods, seven tornadoes or cy
clones, one devastating storm, three
explosions, Including the one in Wall
street; one building accident, two
typhoid epidemics, the most serious be
ing that at Salem, Ohio, which af
fected 0 per ern I of the population;
one smallpox epidemic, in the republic
of Haiti; one train wreck, the race riot
at Tulsa, Okla.; (he famine in China,
emergency relief in famine among the
Indians of Alaska, the grasshopper
plague In North Dakota and an earth
quake In Italy.
Pueblo Most Serious
By far the most severe of the dis
asters In the United States during the
period covered by the Red Cross re
?ort was the Pueblo flood early in
une, 1021. The rehabilitation prob
lem confronting the Red Cross in
Pueblo was one of the most difficult
in recent years. When the first news
of the horror was (lashed throughout
the country, the American Red Cross
National Headquarters responded with
a grant of $106,000 for relief work.
Governor Shoup of Colorado, appre
ciating the long and successful experi
ence of the Red Cross In organising
disaster relief work, placed the en
tire responsibility for the administra
tion of relief In Its hands.
In response to appeals from Presi
dent Harding, Governor Shoup and
other governors of western states and
I through local chapters of the Red
Cross and other community organisa
tions, public-spirited citizens brought
the total contributed for Pueblo's re
habilitation to more than $326,000.
The terrible havoc wrought by the
flood waters, ls a matter of record.
More than 2,800 homes were affected
and 7,351 persons were left homeless.
Estimates of $600,000 as an absolute
mini .um for rehabilitation were made
by Red Cross officials in charge of tb"*
relief work. ,
Fast Work In Wall 8treot
The Wall street explosion was nota-'
ble In that relief workers of the Red
Cross were on the scene twenty min
utes after the disaster occurred. The
race riot at Tulsa also was unique In
disaster relief annals In that outside
of a small emergency relief fund con
tributed by the ^ed Cross, the only
relief measures outside thc city con
sisted of tiie service of sodnl work
ers, nurses and a trained executive
whose object was to assist local forces
In directing their own efforts.
In decided contrast with the pre
vious year, only one tornado assumed
the proportions of a major disaster.
This occurred on April 16, in the bor
der sections of Texas and Arkansas
with the city of Texarkana as the
center. The significant feature of this
disaster relief work was the fact that
lt covered so much rural territory aa
te make necessary a large number of
The famine In China necessitating
relief expenditures totf/fiing mme tb ?tn
$1,000,000 by the American Red Cross
waa by far the most serious of' the
foreign disaster* in which the Red
Cross gave aid.
Builds Up tte Machinery
In connection with the administra
tion of disaster relief measures, an In
creasing effectiveness on the part of
the Red Cross to deal with emergen
cies was manifested during the past
yoar. In 828 Chapters of the Ameri
can Rad Cross there have been formed
special committees to survey the re*
sources of their respective communi
ties and to be prepared In eas? of
disaster. In others of the 3,402 active
Chapters, a network of communication
has been formed through which Instan
taneous relief may be dispatched to
any part of the United Stntcs.
That Its work In this field may be
continued with ever greater effective
ness, the American Red Cross ie ap
pealing for widespread renewal of
membership during Its Annual Roll
Call, to be conducted this yenr from
November ll to 24.
