Peace Program Red Cross Work (Continued From Page One.) movement that aims at having- one person in every home. vho has had practical instruction in home hygiene and care for the sick. This instruction is to be given by Red Cross nurses who can be secured by every chapter to conduct classes that will reach all the women of the various communi ties. It is a splendid plan to help solve our present, health problems, to prevent the reoccurrence of past dis asters and to eliminate present unnec essary evils. Experts say that if the American women had been thus pre pared when the . influenza epidemic began its ravages, hundreds of thous ands of lives would have been sa,ved. "The other phase of the health pro Kram calls for one or more public health nurses in every county in the country- These nurses are to be Red Cross nurses, who have not only met the professional qualifications for nursing but who have been given spe cial training in public health com munity work. The types of nursins which will be engaged in are bed side nursing, parental nursing, matern ity nursing, infant welfare, child wel fare, school nursing and tuberculosis work. Social Service. "In social service, the Red Cross work will be promoted by a home service committee. - The Red Cross home service committees - are now working for the soldiers and sailors and their families; but as this work is completed, home service wTill be extended to take care of the social needs of the whole community, if no other organizations are doing this ad equately. While there are other or ganizations, the home service section may act as a clearing house for the various organizations, or give assist ance to those already taking care of the work. The Red Cross in this work has been aptly described as 'or ganized neighborliness.' . School Activities. "The Junior Red Cross, or school activities of the Red Cross, will be the means of better teaching patriot ism and service in ovjr schools and ATARRH For head or throat Catarrh try tha vapor treatment icifs Vapor; iVA YOUR D0DYGUARD-30r-.60. 7 V mm T2( ' ' Q)lfJ mmmm P utf yDE3 KQy&wt Giiglh)QCFi&Qdl9 Qme Th N.

It's a 1 will also offer a plan in cooperation with the ' other departments of the Red Cross for the carrying out of an educational program in first aid and home nursing in the schools! , First Aid. "The first aid work of the Red Cross is no less important than Its Other activities. , Before the war It was one of the principal features of Red Cross work.- During the eight years preceding the war,, first aid representatives of the Red Cross trav eled over three thousand miles and instructed over tnree hundred thous and railroad employes. Over twenty five thousand lumbermen In the west were given first aid Instruction- "Now, since the war Is over and the Red Cross has. because of its won derful achievements and popular ap peal, the opportunity of extending It3 various activities, chapters will be asked to organize committees on first aid instruction for the purpose of con ducting classes. To make first- aid instruction practicable and at the same time effective, to take care of relief emergencies. Red Cross sanitary training detachments will be formed. These detachments will consist of about sixty men who will be trained and drilled to take care of any dis asters In the city or surrounding cities. - In spite of every ; precaution, there will always be fires, explosions, floods, storms and epidemics,, which will demand Immediate first aid relief, such as can only be afforded by a well trained organization like Red Cross sanitary training detachments. "A first aid program also calls for a life saving corps to combat the loss of life in drowning. iCitles on ' lakes, rivers or on the coast are" expressing great interest in this phase of first aid. Jacksonville, Florida, already has a splendid volunteer life saving corps, under the direction and -support of tha Red Cross chapter there. Finishing thfc War Program. "Now. while our chapters are asked to begin the .peace program which I have outlined, we must not forget the war program. Until it is finished, the slogan of the American people will be "Let's finish the Job. The response given to this slogan in the Victory Liberty Loan campaign shows that the patriotism of the American people is syil alive, active and dominant. "Now, through the Red Cross, the American people must. for many months yet to come, discharge a na tional duty to the soldiers in Service, the disabled and mutilated soldiers, the discharged soldiers : and the war strlckened lands in Europe. For the Men in the Service and Dis abled Soldiers. "The Red Cross is busy overseas with the million American boys there, both with the army of occupation and . Qlt tin!

The Red Cross is serving in ninety base hos pitals and in forty reconstruction hos pitals in this country and has recently been asked to extend this work to the . thirty-two public health, aervlca hospitals, ; which care for the bene ficiaries of the War Risk Insurance Bureau and the employes of certain governmental organizations like tne merchant marine. For the Disabled Men. "Then for the disabled soldiers, the Red Cross, through its home service sections, is seeing that our boys are getting what is due them in the way of back pay, bonuses, allotments. Lib erty Bonds, compensations and insur ance and Is also assisting in the mat ter of employment. . Relief Work in Foreign Lands. "Relief work in foreign lands is greatly increased since the signing of the armistice. While the Red Cross relief work not long ago centered in France, Belgium and Italy. It has now spread out until active commissions reach from the Atlantic coast of Eu rope to the Pacific coast of Siberia. Our last reports tell of the imposing activities in -Greece, a country from which details heretofore have been lacking, and of the very many relief measures that are now in operation In far off Siberia. In Poland while the special commission sent there has had hardly time to complete a survey of the situation, actual down-to-bUsiness work has been begun with full energy. The longest train that was ever sent from the city of Warsaw was the American Red Cross train that left there a short time ago with a cargo of $2,000,000 worth of relief supplies. A careful survey by experts, best qualified to do it, indicates that relief needs will continue great for a long time to come, y A lew America. "To sum it all up. concluded Mr. Smith, "the Red Cross has two great things to offer: : "First: The machinery and organi zation focthe American people to com plete the war program, which will re quire many more months of active support, and through which the Amer ican people may discharge a national debt of honor. "Second: A practical plan and the machinery for carrying it out, to make our home land a better "place to liv? In; to bring about a new and ordered national life; to keep alive the spirit of service, cooperation and new con ception of citizenship born amid the sacrifices and exigencies of the World War; to bring about a new America."
