Thank you a hundred times.

Washington, D. C, October 9, 10, and

service this orgsnization has entered.
We recognized the need of our Amer
ican Red Cross more during the
World War than ever before, and
many of us have thought of it as
a functioning body only in war an-1
public disaster, but the more active
it is in public interests in peace, th
better prepared it is to function when
great emergencies arise. This organ
ization as it exists today does not
have to be awakened from slumber
when disaster ariuf, but with a keen
world interest, an overflowing lor,
new tjt
fessions at its command, is alert and
ready to take charge of the situation
however grave and gigantic. As a
trusted friend it meets the need ani
the approval of the public.
Hear Starr Cadwaller, who to hear
once in person feeling his spiritual
power, deep interest and catching hli
vision, is not to be forgotten. "Th
Red Cross camo to life during a pe -
riod of peace. It can perform its
war function effectively only if it
maintains an effective peace-time or -
ganization." As Mr. Cadwallader
urges we need more of the word-of-

our strongest agencies of publicity
just before our Roll-Call.
I am sure with the world vision and
world interest our "Bereans"feel grate
ful because our chapter has not de
mobilized since the World War, and
thru the following years have had
some pert in all the relief render ii
by this organization in public disss-
ters. The reconstruction days !mv
also been and are yet very trying in the English ministry, as she ex
and other countries more devastated pects more sympathy in her attitude

Of greatest importance in the newt
of the week is the resignation of
Lloyd George as prime minister of
Grest Britain and the appointment
of Bonar Law as his successor. This
marks the end of the coalition ministry
which csrried on the war so effective
ly and has done so much toward re
ronstruction. The new administra
tion is a conservative on and pre
sumably will differ in policy some
what, although the party most
share the responsibility for what
has been done. Problems in th
East and t India are now domi
nant, and the Conservative; Party
has always excelled in that field since
the days of Disraeli. It is believed
that the change will not affect th
Irish Treaty in any way. It is pos
sible that the former premier may
visit the United States. He hss re
ceived an invitation from a Welsh
society to come to America and he
would receive a cordial welcome.

England's claim that such search and

place only within the three mile limit.
It is possible that an apology will be
asked of the United States. Exemp
