RED CROSS TO COLLECT
CLOTHING FOR BELGIUM
Hoover Asks Davison's Aid In Work
Beginning March 18 and ending
March 25, a seven day, nation-wide
campaign will be carried on by the
American Red Cross and the
Commission for Relief in Bel
glum to secure a minimum
quantity * of 5,000 tons of clothes
for the destitute people of Belgium
and the occupied portions of Northern
France. At the request of Herbert
Hoover, chairman of the Commission
for Relief in Belgium, Henry P. Davi
son, chairman of the Red Cross War
Council, has granted the use of the na
tional Red Cross organization for col
lecting the needed clothing.
As the commission h allowed most
of its local committees f disband be
cause of the financial arrangements
made last June with the government,
it has turned to the Red Cross for
help. Where the local committees of
the Relief Commission are still intact,
they will work side by side with the
Red Cross Chapters.
The practically entire exhaustion of
clothing, shoes, and leather in occupied
Belgium and Northern France and the
shortago of these necessities in the
world's markets are making it in
creasingly difficult for the Conmission
to keep clothed and shod the unfortun
ate people in these territories. In ad
dition to new material, gifts of used
and surplus clothing, shoes, blankets,
flannel cloth, etc., are needed in large
quantities from the people of the Unit
The donations will be shipped at
once to the Atlantic seaboard and sent
overseas for distribution.
CANTEEN SERVICE FOR
SAMMiES IN FRANCE
Red Cross To Serve Boys In The Front
The American Red Cross has just
arranged to establish with the Aneri
cao troops in France a front line can
teen service similar to that through
which they have served more than
a million pollus with hot drinks during
the last six months, according to a
cable just received by the War Coun
cil from Major James H. Perkins, Red
Cross Commissioner to France.
This will consist of rolling canteens
stationed close behind the front line
trenches. There are now fifteen of
these operating- behind the French
lines, from which fifty or more large
receptacles of hot drinks are sent for
ward daily, usually in the small hours
of the morning. These drinks are
served free to the men going on or
coming off duty.
This service has proven of such
value to the French that the Ameri
can army has asked the Red Cross to
have this service directly in touch
with the medical relief stations near
est the front. The work is often done
under heavy shell fire and requires
men of great bravery and sympathy.
The American army officers are man
ifesting a keen interest in having this
service at the disposal of the American
troops and have asked the Red Cross
to enlist a substantial number of men
of the highest caliber to undertake
this work. It will be performed at the
point nearest the firing line at which
civilians are permitted.
