OUR RED CROSS IS NOT AIDING ENEMY NATIONS NOWADAYS Patriotic Americans who have been’ helping the Bed Cross have of late been making anxious Inquiries as to whether Che humanity and the neutral* Ity of the Bed Cfoss would constrain It to send food, medicines and hospital anits to Germany. *1 want to give to help our boys, andi the stricken people erf France and Bel gium and Serbia," many a one has: written In; "but I don't feel like doing, anything If Che Germans get part of lt* ; Americans need be under no appre hension. riot a cent of Bed Cross con-1 trtbutlons is going to Germany, or has gone there since the war was declared by the United States. General Per shing has gone to Europe to convey to! the kaiser Uncle Sam's compliments In Che form of shells and American bay onets. but the Bed Cross has no part in' that except to care for such of Gen eral Pershing's men as may need care. The matter of sending Bed Cross supplies to Germany was brought up In the recent Red Cross war council In •Washington. Charles D. Norton, one of the members, answered inquiries khus: f "The answer is exceedingly slmpls. We do not purpose to be tried for trea son. We do not purpose to lend aid and comfort to our enemies. We mean to attend onr own American Bed Cross affairs." 1 Former President Taft, who Is chair man of the executive committee, sup sported this view. He said that when Iwounded Germans fell into the hands of the American Red Cross they will get the same treatment as onr own men; but that It would undoubtedly be treason to send supplies to Germany as we did before we'were forced into the war. * So Americans can give freely, know |lng that every cent is for our own and par allies' wounded, and not for the fenemy. Red Cross Trench Work. Bed Cross surgeons ahd orderlies give first aid to the wounded in little underground dressing stations in the front line trenches. In these dark, wet places, cold and 111-ventilated, it Is sometimes necessary to perform major operations—such as an amputation, for instance. War records in France show that as many Red Cross workers as In fantrymen are killed by enemy fire in ,the trenches. R&l requires~courage of the highest order. Soldiers have the stimulation of fight ing and giving the enemy shot for shot and blow for blow. The others don’t. COMMISSIONER’S SALE OF LAND.
