' DYNAMIC RED CROSS MONEY By FRANKLIN K. LANE. Secretary of the Interior. OUT of the $100,000,000 given last June by the American people to the lied Cross, nearly one-half ($4.r,000.000) has gone to help the refugees, the orphaned children, the repatriates and wounded of the French. Belgian, Italian, Serbian, Roumanian and other peoples. The Red Cross has spent more than $30,000. 000 in France alone in the establishment of canteens for the poilus. the reconstruction of devasted dis tricts, the care of homeless children, the housing of refugees, the sending of food, clothes and supplies to the sorely burdened civilian population. More than $2,000,000 has been spent in fighting tubercu losis, one of the worst of war's by-products; $1,149, 000 has been expended for the shelter of war orphans. $'2.701,7!W has been appropriated for the reconstruc tion of villages and general relief work in the dev asted areas. In Italy a great work of relief was organized after the Austro-German drive of last fall, and the thousands of refugees that came pouring over the Po and the Piave were aided by a business-like and far-reaching supply and canteen service, improvised out of the existing organization. More than $3,000,000 was thus sXJiit for Italy. American funds will soon make the plain of Monastir fertile once more through the importation of seeds and agricultural implements. In this section of Serbia more than fitly thousand refugees have been on the verge of starvation for nearly two years. It should be a source of daily pride to every American that our own Red Cross is adding new glories to the American Name in the Mother Continent. Our full support is essential if its pres ent mighty work of succor and human brotherhood is to be continued on an ever increasing scale. Smith Serves the Red Cross By T. J.
