What Does It Cost to Run the Red
Cross Organization?
It cost the American Red Cross but
two cents of each dollar of the mil
lions appropriated to pperate the ad
ministrative bureaus in the United
States which took a vital part in the
management of the greatest relief
program the world has ever known.
D or each dollar contributed by the
American people for War Relief more
than one dollar and one cent is ex
pended for that purpose, the extra
cent being provided by interest on
the funds.
"When You Get Home"
In order that every man released
from service in the American Army
or Navy may resume his position in
civil life with a lull understanding of
his rights under special war legis
lation the American Red Cross is
printing a booklet entitled "When You
Get Home." A copy of this will be
attached to the discharge papers of
every man released from camp. At
the suggestion of General Munson of
the General Staff this material has
also been sent by special messenger
to Paris, in order that it may be
printed and distributed to men em
barking for home. Six hundred thou
sand copies are to be printed as the
Army edition and the Navy will be
similarly supplied.
In the preamble of the book the
purpose of the Red Cross is stated as
the desire to put at the service of re
turning soldiers either information or
more substantial help as they may
supplies for the sick, etc., which has
been done in hit-or-miss fashion in the
past month.
Miss Wells will be in the office from
10 to 12 and from 1 to 4 each day.
She will give out any information to
auxiliaries and answer calls for re
lief. Her special work, however, will
be to heln soldiers or their families
in the matter of allotment, back pay,
compensation or insurance. All in
quiries concerning such details should
be directed to this office.
The chairman of each auxiliary of
Medina County Chapter will be the
director of Civilian Relief in his own
The recently elected chairmen of
auxiliaries are as follows:
Liverpool, Mrs. W. C. Hoppe.
Hinckley, Mrs. Bertha Ehman.
York, Miss Hallie Manning.
Granger, Mrs. Clair Miller.
Chatham, Mrs. Will Shaw.
Montville, Mrs. E. F. Musser.

Certificates in recognition of loyal
service to the nation, thru the Red

who have given regular service dur

months of service of not less than
three days a week; or for twelve
months of service of not less than two
days a week, approximately 800 hours.
In computing periods of service,
only service subsequent to April 8,
1917, shall be considered.
In chapter production, work done

Disabled soldiers and sailors dis
charged from service probably know
more about the government plans for
their civil re-establishment than do
the people of Medina.
lhese plans include all necessarr
medical, surgical and convalescent
treatment m government hospitals.
During this time the men are still in
service technically and receive their
regular pay and family allowances.
C. UWUl JLV& wuiucuoor
tion, is unable to resume his peace
time occupation when he is well
enough to be discharged, the Federal
Board for Vocational Education will
provide training in any suitable work
that he may choose. Both compen
sation and family allowance will be
made by the government during train
ing. Those men who are able to take up
their old line of work, are helped by
the Federal Board thru its employ
ment bureaus to find the best job
possible and are paid compensation
by the War Risk Insurance so long
as the disability for which they were
discharged continues to exist
The government realizes that how
ever wise and beneficent its plans,
there will still be cases which these
plans cannot cover. The Red Cross
has been asked to co-operate with the
government agencies. Each Red Cross
Home Service Section has a repre
sentative whose duty it is to look out
for the needs of discharged men and
to help them get in touch with the
government provisions for their wel
fare. Our wounded men deserve a better
return for their services to their
country than the brief enthusiasm of
people at home. The Red Cross has
been asked to urge upon every one
the fact that returned soldiers do not
wish the kind of sympathy that takes
them out of the course of life they
must pursue in the future.

"How Arrears of Pay May Be Ap

Cattle Buying for
Swift & Company
Swift & Company buys more than
9000 head of cattle, on an average,
every market day.
Each one of them is "sized up" by
Both the packer's buyer and the
commission salesman must judge what
amount of meat each animal will yield,
and how fine it will be, the grading of
the hide, and the quantity and quality
of the fat.
Both must know market conditions
for live stock and meat throughout the
country. The buyer must know where
the different qualities, weights, and
kinds of cattle can be best marketed
as beef.
If the buyer pays, more than the
animal is worth, the packer loses money
on it. If he offers less, another packer,
or a shipper or feeder, gets it aw
from him.
If the seller accepts too little, the ve
stock raiser gets less than he is entitled
to. If he holds out for more than it is
worth, he fails to make a sale.
A variation of a few cents in the price
per hundred pounds is a matter of vital
importance to the packer, because it
means the difference between profit
and loss.
