The American lied Cross will
conduct Us Fifth Annual Roll
Cull this your beginning on Ann
istice Day, November 11th, and
ending the eve of Thanlcsgivhitr
Day. National headquarters in
"Washington, Division headquar
tors in the eight Divisions of the
(led Cross, and headquarters of
each of the more then 3 thousand
Chapters, are busily engaged on
llieir Roll Call program, accord
ing to information given out at
local Red Cross headquarters.
The effort will be to re-enroll
every present member of the
Red Cross an add as many naw
members to the rosteras possible
in the period given.
There are at present 0,041.1153
iiifMnbers in the American Red
Cross. John Barton Payne, Chair
man of the Red Cross, hopes to
hoar the answer, "present",
when each one of these names is
called between Armistice Day
and Thanksgiving Day this year,
he says, providing for the work
of service to the public of Amer
ica and the .sufferers in foreign
lauds which tint Red Cross has
started and is conducting on the
basis of its peace time program.
In a letter sent out from Xati
onal Headquarters, W. Frank
Person, Vice-Chairman of the
American Red Cross in Charge
of Domestic Operations. calls,
attention to the fact that the
strength of the Red Cross in
the past has been in its volun
.leer workers. Ho urges, there
fore, that all Chapter Memboi
ship Committees seek to re
enlist the largest number pos
sible of the men and women who
have served the Red Cross as
volunteers in the past, and sug
gests that the Roll Call 'is a
logical channel for bringing for
mer workers back to service in
the Red Cross.
The interest manifested in the
Red Cross Convention at Colum
bus, Ohio, the first week in Oc
tober, showed that the public; is
as keen to stand behind the
work of the Red Cross in iU
peace time program as during
ho war, and that the thinking
public realizes that the Red
Cross is as necessary to the
welfare of the civilized world hi
time of peace as in war. Oltici

Hit refore, that the Roll Cull tli.
jo.ir will result in many mou
int'inijers than were placed on
the- roster of the American Red
Cross last year.
The Red Cross throughout the

DEFENDSTHE ".DIME NOVEL"

suppo-cd to be bnd. Sometimes It

PRIMITIVE LAND OF ALBANIA
Conditions There Today Much as They
Were at the Beginning of
Albania belongs to u time as far
back as the annals of the world can
reach and Is as primitive as If It were
In central China, almost as dllllcult
to penetrate as Tibet Itself. It Is
a land unfamiliar to the traveler and
fluinncd by(the tourist of today.
If the three or four centers of popu
lation In southern Albania are a lit
tle disappointing as cities, this Is
not true of the country or of the pic
turesque villages which gather like
gray splashes upon the grayer hills,
where they appear to have nestled
since the beginning of time. Hough
stone huts they are for the most part,
with lint stone roofs. For purposes
of defense, they are usually situated
half way up the lower hills, nnd tho
houses nnd outbuildings are often sur
rounded by strong stone walls.
The valleys are rich and well Culti
vated, chiefly by the women, but pre
sent a desolate, deserted appearance,
except In the daylight working hours.
Not a farmhouse nor n slable Is to be
.eon amidst all (he fertile acres. Tho
crops cannot be stolen; no bandit
would think of destroying them, and
so they are left unguarded. National

Secret Gold Field.
There Is no doubt that there Is gold
In the Soudan, and the French gov
ernment Is taking steps to get It out.
Concessions are being given to com
panies which will endeavor to operate
gold mines In that country, and the
nfitlves will be rewarded for revealing
, the places where nuggets have been
found. Twenty years ago some oa
th es brought In a CO-pound rock,
which was found to be IK) per cent
gold, anil recently there have been
found u number of smaller nuggets
( which were nlmost ns rich. The Sou
j dnneM! fields ure nt present very dlfll
, cult to rench, but (he announced fact
that a colonial railroad project is to
1 ho completed In a few years makes
j the outlook very hopeful, and the pre
diction Is made by some that the Sou
' dan will some day outrival the Klon-
dike. Heretofore the natives have
I byen clever enough to guard as a se

BUSY STREET CORNER SAFEST
Logical Reason Why There Are Fsw
Accidents Vhere the Traffic
Is the Heaviest.
"You must have lots of accidents
here," said n friend of Trafllc Com-ml.-doner
Harrlss the other day us
they were passing one of, the most
congested comers of the city. "I'm"
not surprised either," he added ns he
saw a large touring car come sud
denly to a hull I imh 1 1 ul ii half u foot
from a passing pedestrian. ,
The commissioner shook his head.
"Thai's where you're wrong," he re
plied. "Not only are there not more
lint inhere are uctunlly less accidents
here In proportion to thu amount of
tratlic that goes by than almost any
other place In Now York. If you'll
think a minute you'll see the reason
for It, too. Where the street Is more
or Ie-.s (iilet nnd deserted a person
crossing the road Is leas npt to look
for approaching vehicles. Where they
ure always passing, however, he Is al
ways on the lookout. The theory
works both ways. While thu pedes
trlun keeps a close watch on the
Mreum of trafllc, the automobile
driver also keeps tab on the con
tlnous lilu of pedestrians In his way.
On a comparatively cpilet street both
pedestrians ami cars nre exceptions
and accidents are bound to occur."
