1,500,000 Sent to Soldiers—
Keep Navy Supplied, Too—
System Prevents Waste.
Nearly one million and a half of
sweaters have been purchased for
training camps, according to the Bu
reau of Military Relief of the Atlan
tic Division of the Ued Cross, which
, lius charge of the distribution of sup
1 piles to the enlisted and conscripted
men In the states of New York, New
Jersey and Connecticut.
I About 400,000 of these sweater·
were bought In the last month. Sixty
thousand helmets were also pur
chased, many of which have not yet
been delivered because they are held
up by the present traffic blockade.
The need for sweaters among the
American lighting men Is Increasing,
and the American lied Cross Is buy
ing In the open market almost the
same quantity of knitted garments ns
Is now being made by the women vol
j unteers In the Red Cross.
I Camp Dix, Camp Upton, Camp
Mills, Camp Merrltt, Camp Vail and
the nvlatlon fields are within the Juris
diction of the Atlantic Division. Be
sides these camps, the Division sup
plies Madison Barracks and Kurt·
Hancock, Wadsworth, Hamilton, Jay,
Wood, Totten, Tllden, Schuyler, 81®
! cum, H. O. Wright and Terry.
Red Croaa Men at Camp·.
I At these stations. Including some
miscellaneous giving and In addltloo
ι to 00,000 Christmas packets, the Red
! Cross has distributed 52,378 sweaters,
i 19.909 helmets, 52,489 muffler», 38,621
wristlets, 52,747 socks and 3,079 coin
fort kite.
It has also given to the Navy 13,819
sweaters 7,744 helmets, 9,975 muf
flers, 11,619 wristlets, 14,020 snck· and
3,167 comfort kits. This makes a to
tal of articles distributed by the At
lantic Division last month 60.197
sweaters, 27,053 helmets, 62,404 muf
flers, 00,273 wristlets, 07,367 socks and
6,846 comfort kits.
The Red Cross Field Director has
come to be the main solution of the
great problem of distribution for the
American Red Cross. In every train
ing cainp In the Atlantic Division
there are Red Cross headquarters I
with a director and sometimes sever
al assistants. From here whole units
of men arc fitted out with compléta
sets o' knitted garments, which are
sent out by the Division In response
to hurry calls.
In the larger camps a supply of five
or si* thousand sweaters Is kept on
hand to meet emergencies. In the
forts where there are no Red Cross
I field directors the distribution of Red
I Cross supplies Is made by the com
manding officer.
"It. was early evident," said John
-MefSSKOlrçctor of Military Relief for
the Division. "tiiiH ,to prevent waste
and misuse of material our distribu
tion must be mnde In a systematic
manner. We therefore adopted the
plan of fitting out units a* a whole.
The commanding officer canvasses
«icb company. He allows only one
outfit to a man. On Inspection day he
check· the articles In the same man
ner a· material Issued by the War
Department."
