J'or r'.vo reasons, say tho leaders of
tho Rod Press, this THIRD RKD

ovory loyal and public spirited Amort
can citizen unions tho millions of mem
born of tho organization that served
our boys at hoine and overseas, saved
tho morale of Franco and Italy In our
early days In tho war, rollovcd the
millions of refugees, fod tho Btarvlng

from extermination, stood as next
friend to those families in America

throw Its tremendous resources Into
tho fight against influenza, dealt with
great national disasters of flood arid
fire, and now carrier on (o do Its part
to servo America and to muUu tho
Avar worth having been won.
Theso ftvo reasons aro:
1. Tho War Task of the Red Cross It
Not Yet Fully Performed.
To men stilt in service, and to tliolr
families, at home, to discharged sol
tiers not yet fully adjusted to tho
Toutlno of civilian life, to 30,000 boys
aufforlng or convalescing In Military
ir Naval hospitals, tho American poo
ido still give choer, comfort and sorv-
1co through their Itcd Cross.
In certain portions nf the Old World
the American Itcd Cross still feeds
and clothes (ho undernourished and
ragged babies, cares for tho nged and
tho Infirm, and assists tho people of
Ihrao dlscase-rlddon, fainlnc-strlckon,
war-ravaged countrlcH to organlzo
their own resources, fllnco tho sign
ing of the Armistice, this work has
nteadlly declined, but It Is not by any
neans fully completed.

3, In Case of Epidemic Local Red
Cross Organt.-ation la Indlspena
During tho Influenza epidemic, Red
Cross action and cooperation saved
threo thousand lives, because the Red
Cross was fully organized In every
community In tho United States.
Against a possible recurrence of In
fluenza tills winter and against a dan
ger of epidemic in the future, con
tinued universal membership in the

The American Red Cross Is still an
'mergeney organization. It must be
realized that there is such a thing as
n continuing disaster: 300,000 babies
under one year of age die every year
because of Ignorance; tfiousands of
mothers die unnecessarily In child
birth; it is still possible for an epi
demic like the influenza to take a toll
within a compass of a few weeks five
4laes greater than the losses of our
nation in a year and a half or war;
hundreds of thousands of people in
the prime of life die In tho United
States every year from wholly pre
ventablo diseases, This Is nothing
short of a disaster which Is a continu
ing ouo and will bo permanent unless
the peoplo cooperate with one an
other to use tho knowledge and wealth
already In existence to bring the na
tion into a better day, The Red Cross

An argument submitted on behalf
nf tho striking stool workers mndo
the point that working hours huvo
been too long ill tho past, ' When
work Is arduous; we aro told that It
Is prejudicial to a man's health to
work morn than ellht hours, one day
There seems to bo senso In this.
.Many of the Jobs In stool mills aro
singularly arduous. Of course, tha
farm hand works longer hours, but
tho grind Is not so killing. And It
s bad economics also morally wrong
to let men continue working under
conditions which hurt their health.
On the other hand, most steel work
ers draw exceedingly high wages. A
fow of thorn oven make as much as
S60 to $80 a day, which is a pretty
good soma to drag down, evon if tho
day'a work Is tiring. This, however,
is no nrgumeni ror making a woraini
day long ooungh to bo prejudicial to
Iloth sides aro wrong, Homo way
of shortening tho working day would,
one would think, ho easy to work out.
According to some of the chemical
experts nt tho mills, u shorter day
would not bo consistent with the
manufacture of certain grades of
steel extraordinary conditions are
necessary in tho construction of it.
This may be true, but the war has
taught us how to accomplish nearly
ovurythlng that Is chemlrnlly and an
atomically Impossible, it ml hero Is one
more ohnticu for n high-flying savant.
This, however, would not satisfy tho
strikers. They want un enforcement
or their rule forbidding nny man to
work ut their .trade without their
eminent. And in n free 'country it
should be every man's privilege to
work, If he likes, wherever mi em
ployer can use him. Lot any man
who wants Join n union; but let those
who prefer to stay nut do so without
being penalized for their Independence.
