And on Armistice Hay there will be under treatment In Government hospitals over 2."i,U0 ex-aervlc. men, broken physically by wounds, expo sure, nervous strain and exhaustion incident to their service In the war. The lioverutiient without stint Is un dertaking to furnish these disabled men with the compensation and med ical care to which they are entitled, yet their especial rare I a duty of the Red Cross. Why? Because the Gov- I eminent cannot handle the case of ex-service men Individually; It must handle these men In bulk under a standardized policy.

There Is where the American Hed Cros flnds Its greatest field for service, aid ing through Its very active Chapter in reaching the disabled man with Im mediate practical help, assisting hi family while his claim Is emerging from the process of adjustment, furnishing article of comfort, funds to tide over the difficult periods, 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 Hed Cros extend to the majority of these disabled ex-service men. some of them friendless in the whirl of life, thousands of them with wives and children dependent upon them, and hundreds of them frequent ly helpless In the face of grim ne cessity. 2,679 Chapters Aiding Veteran.
