OF THE RED CROSS Statement Made With An nouncement of $15,000,000 /'Roll Call" Drive. An outline of the peace-time pro gram of the American Red Cross was made yesterday following the an nouncement of the third roll call, to be made November 2 to 11, when the .American people ?ill be asked to renew their membership for 1920 and con tribute J15.000.000 for the future ^ork of the organization. Among Foremost Activities. Foremost among the activities dur ing the coming year will be nation wide activity for the promotion of public health: a vigorous campaign for the extension of the country's nursing resources; the broadening of lied Cross home service: increased ju nior Red Cross activities; extension of Red Cross facilities for emergency disaster relief: completion of relief measures for the sufferers from the war in this country and overseas, and preparation to fulfill whatever duties may be laid upon it as the official vol unteer relief society authorized to as sist the Army and Navy. To Guard Public Hen 1th. ? "Public health nursing will be one nf the important features of this cam ?<aijn," said the announcement. "Red Cross public health nurses will be as signed to as many small communities as possible. "The Red Cross must hold itself ready for instant relief service in time of public disaster, such as great tires. floods. cyclones, shipwrecks, earthquakes, pestilence, famine and epidemics. "The turning over to the American Red Cross of the surplus medical and surgical supplies and supplementary food stores of the American Army abroad for distribution among ?the still suffering native populations, to- ; iiether with the foreign relief pro- I ?rams still being carried out largely in Poland, the Balkans and Siberia, necessitates the continuance of Red Cross operations overseas. Will Continue Uilitary Belief. "Until demobilization is completed, and after, the Red Cross military re lief organizations will continue to function. Thirty thousand service men j still in the military hospitals, many ! crippled for life, require Red Cross : Attention. Hospital, canteen and mo- i tor service must continue. "Completion of Red Cross work for j the soldiers disabled in the fighting ! and general assistance to the fighting men in getting back to civil life is J Still far off. particularly In the many and varied phases of home service. Thousands of families of service men are still being helped to solve their problems by this Red Cross activity, and money relief in this connection alone Is in excess of $500,000 a month."

HUNGARIANS ASK ALLIED VIEWS AS TO ARCHDUKE BUDAPKST, August 22,(by the As sociated Press).?In order to force the situation, a meeting of representatives of the different Hungarian parties was held here yesterday, at which it was decided to request of the entente gov ernments direct declarations of their attitude toward Archduke Joseph and whether he is persona grata. While the representations from Paris on this point have been unequivocal, they have been couched in diplomatic terms, apparently affording the arch duke and his supporters room for eva sion. Meantime, the Rumanian propa ganda continues industriously. The unfavorable reception of overtures to ward Joint action with Rumania is so pronounced in Hungary that the Ru manian agejits have taken another tack, pointing out the advantages of an economic alliance carrying also some degree of political harmony along certain lines. The attitude of Premier Friedrich in the present situation is another matter giving the entente representa tives some concern. He is believed to be the guiding spirit in the machi nations and political moves with the Rumanians, resulting in hindering negotiations for the establishment of an acceptable government. There is now some talk of a directorate form of government pending the elections, composed, probably, of three men rep resenting the leading political ele ments. COHAN Will HEAD ACTORS.
