counties before I canvassed the State.
1 was practically a stranger In every
county In tho Stnte except my own

voto for a new man-so much so
that I expect to be in tho race next
time, and I feel confident, after hav

will have easy sailing. Clean poli

I have been Treasurer of Kershaw

United States Citizens Far Away
Enthusiastic Members of the
"Fourteenth" Division.
Among the most enthusiastic and
energetic members of the American
Red Cross are those citizens of the
United States who live outside the
continental boundaries of their country
-sons and daughters of the Stars and
Stripes residing at the far corners of
the earth.
These people compose the Insular
and Foreign Division of 'he parent Or
ganization, generally I? ?.iowu us tJve
"Fourteenth" Dlvltdou hlch hu?
Jurisdiction of all territory outside
the country proper; that ls, AhvUn,
Porto Rico, Hawaii, Virgin Jinnda, the
Philippines, Quam, au? even tho in
land of Yap, which came under our
flag as a result of the world war. For
tho year 1020 this division reported
80,808 paid up members.
The main object of this division ls
to give our citizens everywhere the op
portunity to participate in the work
of the organisation which stands for
the best national ideals. Americans
in far places intensely loyal and pa
triotic, treasure their membership in
the Red Cross as the outward ex
pression of their citizenship, lt is an
other tie to the homeland and to
each other. There are chapters of
this division In Argentine, Bolivia,
Brazil, Canal zone, Chile, China, Costa
Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic,
Ecuador, England, France, Guam,.
Quntemala, Haiti, Hawaii, Honduras,
Japan, Manchuria, Netherlands, Nica
ragua, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines,
Porto Rico, Siberia, Spain, Sweden,
Switzerland, Syria, Turkey, Uruguay,
Venezuela and Virgin Islands.
During the war these scattered
members of the Red Cross contrib
uted millions in money, and millions
of dollars' worth of necessary articles
for the men In service, and sent many
doctors and nurses to France. At the
same time they carried on an excel
lent Home Service In their respective
communities for the families of those
who had gone to war, and in some re
gions gave large sums of money and
immeasurable, personal service to the
relief of disaster and disease victims.
The division is now establishing
service clubs in foreign ports for the
benefit of sailors in the American Mer
chant Marine, making plans to aid
Americans in trouble In foreign lands
and completing arrangements for giv
ing immediate adequate relief In case
of disaster.
It is tho Fourteenth Division's part
In the great Peace Time program of
the American Red Cross.
Aid for Spanish Red Cross.
The Iberian chapter of the American
Red Cross, composed of Amerlcnns
resident In Spain, has Just contributed
$<1S() to e. fund being raised by the
Spanish Bed Cross nnd the League of
Bed (Voss Societies for the purpose of
fighting malaria.

American Rod Cross Will Have
Health Centers in All Parts
of United States.
The American Red Cross has munch
ed upon a tuition wide campaign of
fighting disenso und physical defect
among the ' merican people. A new
and uulo? health Institution hus come
Into being ns the result of sovernl
mouths' study by the Red Cross Ileulth
Service Department at National Head
Ofllelnls In charge of the department
predict that before long this new health
activity will bo lu actual operation all
over tho country, and that the sign
"American Red Cross Health Center"
-will become as familiar to the peo
ple everywhere as are now the signs of
the telegraph companies.
Duty Long Before War.
Th? interest of the American Red
Cross in th? fight against disease ls
not, however, of recent origin. Long
before the war the organisation began
this health service through its medical
units In disaster relief work and Its
department of Town and County Nurs
ing. During the war and following
the armistice thousands of American
Red Cross officials have been fighting
disease In the war-stricken countries.
At the same time tens of thousands of
local Red Cross otllclals have been en
gaged at home fighting disease, nota
bly during the Influenza epidemics.
The American Ped Cross has* de
termined that all this valuable experi
ence In health service abroad and at
home shall not go to waste. So long
as there are a half a million people
dying yearly In this country from pre
ventable causes, and so long as more
than one-third of the American chil
dren and young people are victims of
physical defects, the Red Cross recog
nizes the urgent need for continued
Red Cross health service at home.
How Organization Work*.
The Red Cross Health Center la
governed by business principles, ap
plies business methods, and, In Its
more simple form, can be established
and conducted by lay people.
It proceeds upon the demonstrated
fact that health Is a commodity that
can be bought and sold like brooms
and loap. Therefore, lt establishes It
self tn a storeroom in the principal
business Beet lon of the community. It
displays Its goods In the form of at
tractive health exhibits in Its show
windows. It advertises constantly and
extensively. And lt uses every busi
ness dad social device to attrsct cus

The; Red Cross Henlth Center lst
however, of even greater service to th?
well. ' lt teaches people how to pre
vent sickness and dbease. This ls done
In many Interesting and attractive
ways-first of all, by the distribution
of popular health literature and
through health lectures Illustrated with
lantern slides or with health motion
picture films. Then special exhibits arc
given, one after the other, on various
health subjects. Practical d?monstra
tions are made ; also health playlets bj
children to Interest and Instruct them
selves and their elders. Classes ar?
organized in personal hygiene, home
care of the sick, first aid and in food
selection and preparation. Health
clubs, both for younger and older peo
ple, are formed; also Little Mothers'
Leagues. Nutrition and growth clinics
are conducted for children.
Already more than a hundred ol
these Red Cross Health Centers are lr
actusl operation throughout the coun
try. Many of them also conduct med
leal clinics, but the one chief, out
standing feature of the American Ret!
Cross Health Center ls Its health edu
cation service which teaches well peo
pie how to keep well.
Lauding the work accomplished b:
American philanthropy for war
stricken France, Andre Tardleu, form
er high commissioner from that na
lion to the United States, In a recen
article widely commented on through
out the French press, says:
"The American Red Cross has ac

High Wages in North Aro OlVsct by \

A dispatch from Macon, Qa., snys:
Thousands of Georgia negroes who
migrated to the North and East soon
after the outbreak of tho war, lured
by high wages offered in Industrial
plants, are returning to Georgia, nnd
hundreds of others are unable to
make the homeward trek because of
lack of funds, and are sending ap
peals to their former employers for
tickets on which to travel back to
Stories appearing in the Macon
News, of this city, from a number of
counties in central and South Geor
gia chronicle tho return of many fam
ilies, and appeals from even larger
numbers for funds with which to re
turn to their nativo homes.
Virtually all of those who return,
and those who are writing for funds,
state that they have been thrown out
of employment and now find them
selves faced with the prospect of a
hard winter in a strange land.
Returning negroes all toll the same
Sjtory.. The high wages received
counted for little with thom, as they
wore more than offset by tho high
cost of living in the industrial cen
ters to which they went. Practically
all of thom return to their old homes
penniless, glad to have saved enough
from their high wages to purchase
the precious pasteboards which thean

and free firewood.
