Forty-three disasters, resulting In tho death In the United States of SCO persons and thu Injury of 2,1300 called for emergency relief measures and tho expenditure of 11,871,000 by the American Ked Cross during the fiscal year ending .lune 80, 1021, says an announcement based upon the forth coming annual report of the Red Cross. These disasters caused property dam age estimated ut $30,000,000, affected sixty-seven communities and rendered 6G.000 families homeless. The year's dlsustera were of vary ing types, Including several which pre viously had tuner been thought of as fulling within that classifica tion. The Ked Cross furnished relief In seventeen fires of magnitude, five floods, seven tornadoes or cy clones, one devastating storm, three explosions, Including the one in Wall street; one building accident, two typhoid epidemics, the most serious be ing that at Salem, Ohio, which af fected 0 per ern I of the population; one smallpox epidemic, in the republic of Haiti; one train wreck, the race riot at Tulsa, Okla.; (he famine in China, emergency relief in famine among the Indians of Alaska, the grasshopper plague In North Dakota and an earth quake In Italy. Pueblo Most Serious By far the most severe of the dis asters In the United States during the period covered by the Red Cross re ?ort was the Pueblo flood early in une, 1021. The rehabilitation prob lem confronting the Red Cross in Pueblo was one of the most difficult in recent years. When the first news of the horror was (lashed throughout the country, the American Red Cross National Headquarters responded with a grant of $106,000 for relief work. Governor Shoup of Colorado, appre ciating the long and successful experi ence of the Red Cross In organising disaster relief work, placed the en tire responsibility for the administra tion of relief In Its hands. In response to appeals from Presi dent Harding, Governor Shoup and other governors of western states and I through local chapters of the Red Cross and other community organisa tions, public-spirited citizens brought the total contributed for Pueblo's re habilitation to more than $326,000. The terrible havoc wrought by the flood waters, ls a matter of record. More than 2,800 homes were affected and 7,351 persons were left homeless. Estimates of $600,000 as an absolute mini .um for rehabilitation were made by Red Cross officials in charge of tb"* relief work. , Fast Work In Wall 8treot The Wall street explosion was nota-' ble In that relief workers of the Red Cross were on the scene twenty min utes after the disaster occurred. The race riot at Tulsa also was unique In disaster relief annals In that outside of a small emergency relief fund con tributed by the ^ed Cross, the only relief measures outside thc city con sisted of tiie service of sodnl work ers, nurses and a trained executive whose object was to assist local forces In directing their own efforts. In decided contrast with the pre vious year, only one tornado assumed the proportions of a major disaster. This occurred on April 16, in the bor der sections of Texas and Arkansas with the city of Texarkana as the center. The significant feature of this disaster relief work was the fact that lt covered so much rural territory aa te make necessary a large number of relief workers. The famine In China necessitating relief expenditures totf/fiing mme tb ?tn $1,000,000 by the American Red Cross waa by far the most serious of' the foreign disaster* in which the Red Cross gave aid. Builds Up tte Machinery In connection with the administra tion of disaster relief measures, an In creasing effectiveness on the part of the Red Cross to deal with emergen cies was manifested during the past yoar. In 828 Chapters of the Ameri can Rad Cross there have been formed special committees to survey the re* sources of their respective communi ties and to be prepared In eas? of disaster. In others of the 3,402 active Chapters, a network of communication has been formed through which Instan taneous relief may be dispatched to any part of the United Stntcs. That Its work In this field may be continued with ever greater effective ness, the American Red Cross ie ap pealing for widespread renewal of membership during Its Annual Roll Call, to be conducted this yenr from November ll to 24.

Incron.se of 5,000 Oases Sinco Report Mudo In 1010-Figures Estimated. Washington, Dec. 29.-Deaths ly cancer In the death registration area of the United States in 1920 totalled approximately 73,000, according toa report issued to-day by the census bureau, which, on a basis of propor tional population, estimated the to tal of doaths for the entire country at 89,000, or an increaso of 5,000 over the estimate for 1919. The upward trend of the cancer death rate, tho report said, ls accu rately shown by tho increaso to 83.1 por 100,000 of population in the reg istration area tn 1920, from a rato of 80.5 per 100,000 In 1919. Using tho adjusted rate for State and sectional comparisons ot cancer mortality, calculated on .in allowance for differences in average "the Northern States have a compar- j ativoly high and the Southern States I a comparatively low cancer mortal- ' ity." Among States in tho registra-1 tion area, Massachusetts showed tho highest adjusted rate-98 per 100, 000, while the rate of 45.9 for South Carolina was the lowest. Race comparisons for various sec tions under the adjusted rates, the ' report said, show the white and ne gro races to be equally susceptible io tho disease, with both apparently less susceptible in the South than In the North.

The Salvation Army has tts Hag not a fliag for any particular nation ('t ls the same flag that waves in Sydney, In Vladivostok, Moscow, Madagascar aiM Honolulu)-In 73 countries. It waves everywhere, and the only difference in tho flag that waves in these places and those that wave itt any city of our own country during the holding of services is that tho other flags have their own lan guage Xor the words, "Blood and Ure," meaning tho two rites neces sary for redemption-the shedding of blood and tho principle of sacri fice thus exemplified, and the cleans ing with fire as prophesied In Saint Matthew A flag .ls not looked upon us a piece of cloth or pretty coloring. If this wore so no nation would -be co herent to the extent they now are. In fact, all nations must have their emblems of national spirit. The oceans of khaki-clad boys who passed eastward during tho war never cre aked the entlntslasm to a climax un-tll their flag floated by. In- a Confederate reunion in a re mote country town in Alabama not many years ago a tottering old vet eran, sitting beside h'is wife, driving the one horse bo the rustic wagon, slowly moved into the little country town to anent his former war pals and was almost unemotional in pass ing the former "boys," but suddenly there waa arised on1 his right an old Confederate flag, and dimly lt re flected itself in.the faded eyes of the old gentleman, Though fettered with age and rheumatism, and crippled, he "became superhuman and rose in his wagon, and, as not before in a year, yelled piercingly. It was the flag, tho symbol, the emblem supe rior to man himself-?the all-in-all to him at one time-the one thing life became secondary to. ? . The Salvation Army flag, though dirty and old perhaps, is the symbol of the blood and .fire that stimulated its followers on to sacrifice of Ufo itself.
