The Hartford Herald, 1.50 tlie year RED CROSS HEALS WOlidDSOF WAR 25,000 Disabled Ex-Service Men ,, in Hospitals After Four Years of Peace. CHAPTERS' FIELD OF SERVICE Every Veteran Needing Help Gets Individual Attention of Sym pathetic Workers. When on November 11 (he world halts to observe the fourth anniver sary of Armistice Day, and the Ameri can Red Cross Inaugurates Its Annual Roll Call for the enrollment of ths 1023 membership, the people of the United States may well pause to think of the unpnralleled contribution to the cause of peace made by our Army and Navy In the World Wnr. The glory of It Is a common tradition; but the wounds of wur remain. They are not heuled In a day. In n year, nor In four years. And on Armistice Day there will be under treatment In Government hospltnls over 25,000 ex-service men, broken physically by wounds, expo sure, nervous strain and exhaustion incident to their service In tiie war. The Government without stint is un dertaking to furnish these disabled men with the compensation nnd med ical care to which they are entitled, yet their especial care Is n duty of the Red Cross. Why? Because the Gov ernment cannot handle the cases of ex-service men individually; It must handle these men In hulk under a standardized policy. The Government has neither the authority, the funds or the equipment fur working out the problem of the Individual num. There Is where the American KihI Cross finds Its greatest field for service, aid ing through Its vt.v nctlve Chapters In reaching the disabled nmn with lm medjute practical help, assisting his family while his claim Is emerging from the process of adjustment, furnishing articles of comfort, fumls to tide over the difficult period!), the friendly touch of personal encouragement, helpful recreation and worry-dispelling amuse ment. It Is the warm hand of sym pathy and understanding which the American Red Cross extends to the majority of these disabled fx-wvlce men, some of them friendless In the whirl of life, thousands of them with wives nnd children dependent upon them, nnd hundreds of them frequent ly helpless in the face of grim ne cessity. 2,679 Chapters Aiding Veterans In this work, upon whose accom plishment the Amerlcnn Red Cross Is urging a record-breaking enrollment In the Roll Cull which opens on Armis tice Day and closes with Thanksgiv ing Day, 2,079 Chnpters In all parts of the country are encaged. This is 3r0 more than were working for ex-seryee men last year when approximately $10,000,000 was expended by the Na tional Organization and the Chapters working lother Jn bnrmonlotts unity. For the current fiscal "yenr National Headquarters appropriated $:i,0.'iO,- 002.90, an increase of :m.",.VM).8t over the amount spent for the work among ex-service nii-h In the year ended June 30 lust. Since It is estimated that Hit Chapters will expend close to ?7,000.- Q00 from their own funds, the grand total or Red Cross expenditures for this single work Is expected again to reach the $10,000,01)0 murk by June 30, 1923. Hospital and District Office Work During the fiscal yenr a total of over 1.000 persons, paid and volunteer, lias been engaged In "Red Cross duty In hospitals or district olllces of the V. S. Veterans' llureau. An average of SUM) new cases requires definite and par ticular attention each month. The de mand for Chapter-made articles for hospital patients Is constant. During last year Service Claims and Information Service at National Head quarters handled 37,200 compensation and Insurance claims, 2-1,3(10 allotment and allowance cases, nnd 0,700 miscel laneous claims. Since February, 1010. It has disposed of 04,174 allotment checks pnyuble to veterans which the Fost Otllce Department report I undo- llverablo. The Clinpter is the unit of the Red Cross organization which Is accessible to every disabled veteran or his fam ily, between July 1, 11)21, and June 1)0, 1022, the Chapters had reported l,0O.V 070 Instances of service to ex-service men and their dependents, at a cost estimated from reports now at hand of more than $5,840,000. . The basis of this far-renchlng work of the Red Cross la the Individual needs of the disabled veternn to the end that he may obtain his rights un der the law, that his especial wants may be Immediately supplied, that his own and bis family's situation may be rendntod happy and cheerful, and that their outlook for the future may visualize Incentives for Independent and fruitful effort. Spread Christmas Joy Abroad Mora than 100.000 Christmas boxes for the children of Central Europe ! were packed by the Junior Red Cross 1 lust year.

I say that opportunities In China are greater thnn In any other country, and I will Illustrate how tils trade can be enlarged with conversation I once had with Chinese on street In his iistlve city. I said to him: "We are going to Increase trade here by Increasing the purchasing pow er of the people." "But," said he, "It ennuot be done." At that moment a wagon load of lumber from my lumber yard came along; It was being pulled by thirteen men. It wus la the winter and snow lay on the ground, but those men were all bnrefooted. I wns paying them eight cents a day. T said: "You take those thirteen men off that wagon, put a horse there, with one uian to drive and put the other twelve men Into factory and you will Increase their purchasing power. They will buy more and develop the com merce of your country.'; I asked him how many persons in China were going barefooted,- and be replied that there must be KlO.OiXUMK) anyway, If not more. .1 told him that they were going barefooted from ne cessity and not from choice and that If they could earn more they would not go bnrefooted. Kneh one of them wanted to buy a pair of shoes and stockings. Muvhe a shoe manufactur er will read this. What vofuild It mean to him to supply 1ni,t0!iiH;l people? And bear In mind that, shoes are Hot I lie only necessities that flies! lUO.OOluino people are doing without for the simple rcn-mii that they have been too poor to buy. .

"This boasted progress of ours Is mere illusion," grimly said old l-'estus Pester. "Corruption permeates our en tire social fabric. Kcliishucss lias sup planted generosity. The process of dis integration is going on at an nhtrmln.? rate. Our sole god litis come to be money. Vice is tolerated, and we make obeisance by hypocrisy. Patriotism has disappeared. Waste and t idleness abound. Humanity is decaying ut heart. Criminality, moral obliquity, class hatred, the destitution of the family sentiment, pessimism nnd skep ticism are evident on every side; and so on and so forth.
