BIG TASK IS DESCRIBED In Twenty Months $154,000,000 Wa» 8pent Overseas and $119,000,000,1 in the United States. Washington. (Special.)—Through a complete report of the work of the American Red Cross in the war by Chairman Henry P. Davison, on be half of the war council, the organiza tion on the eve of its annual enroll ment of members during the Third Red Cross Roll Call, November 2 to 11, has rendered an accounting of the many millions given it by the Ameri can people to help our lighting men and our allies. The statement is, in part, as follows: "The war council of the American Red Cross is now prepared to make a complete accounting to the American people of money contributed and ex pended, as well as the work done by the American Red Cross during the period in which the war council was In control of its affairs. The war council was appointed May 19, 1919, and went out of existence February 2S, 1919. "It was the practice of the war council to give complete publicity to Its policies and finances, but It is only now that a picture of the war period as a whole can be presented. It is the feeling of the war council that a report in this summarized form should be made directly to the public which provided the money and gave the ef fort which made the American Red Cross a success. "A statement of the American Red Cross effort and tinances since the war council relinquished Its control will be made to ihe public through the executive committee, and it is in* portant, therefore, that the fact that this report covers the period only until March 1, should be carefully noted." Following are certaiu round figures covering American Red Cross partici pation in the war, as revealed by the war council's report: Some Outstanding Figures.

THREE DAYS SET ASIDE Schools to Observe Thursday, Churches Sunday and Com munities on Monday. North Dakota this week Is Joining with the nation In honoring the mem ory of a man whose early days were spent on the western plains of this state and who imbibed there some of the sturdy qualities which were des tined to make him a world deader. Roosevelt Memorial week was ush ered In October 20 and will close with general mass meetings In every city and community in the state on October 27—Roosevelt's birthday—which the association hopes to have set aside by congress as a national memory day. How Movement Started. In the reminiscent mood into which the parting with an old and honored friend plunges us, Judge Alton B. Parker, who had opposed Theodore Roosevelt for the presidency Judge \V. H. Taft, who succeeded the rough rider in the presidential chair Judge Charles Evans Hughes, former chief Justice of the United States, and the choice of his party for the nation's chief executive, and other great men, gathered in a New York hotel the afternoon of the Roosevelt funeral. The opinion wus expressed that the life and deeds of such a man as Roose velt should be permanently memorial ized. The idea met with unanimous favor, and at once Colonel William Boyce Thompson, a member of the party, advanced a million dollars with which to finance a campaign for a .,000,000 Roosevelt memorial fund. Plans were submitted to the widow of Colonel Roosevelt. She objected to an amount so large, but finally gave her approval to a plan for the raising of half that sum. Of this $5,000,000, New England immediately subscribed $3,000,000, leaving but $'2,000,000 to be apportioned among the remainder of the states. North Dakota's share of this memorial fund to he raised in honor of a man whom we once claimed as a citizen and brother is only $37,500. The state committee, however, has planned to increase this sum to an amount not to exceed $60,000, with a view to utilizing the surplus for the erection at or near Medora, Roosevelt's old home, of a permanent state mem orial. Th') nature of this memorial will be determined at a joint meeting of the state committee with the chair men from each of the 53 counties to be held later at Medora. Fund Is Assured. Tuesday, October 21, was the day «et for the raising of this fund. Re ports to state headquarters indicate that despite other demands this drive will meet with prompt success. The average apportionment is only a trifle more than $1,000 P?!', Ait! *r for each county. The more Impressive features of Roosevelt Memorial week In North Da kota will be Roosevelt memorial pro grams in every school in the state on Friday, October 24 Roosevelt mem orial services In every church in the state on Sunday, October 26, and Roosevelt memorial mass meetings in every community in the state on Mon day, October 27, Roosevelt's birthday. •$ AMERICANISM AND ROOSEVELT WEEK We all realize that every American, whether he knows anything or not, whether he Is right or wrong, has every right under the Constitution of the United States to his opinion and to the expression of that opinion, UNLESS in such ex pression of opinion he attack such fundamental laws of the land as Imperil the safety, the liberty and the pursuit of hap piness of the people at large. The radical, the agitator, cer tainly Is not without his rights in our land of free thought and free speech. O However, there are certain fundamental principles of free government which abide. These are the fundamental thought of the people as well as the fundamental law of the land. Only the anarchist, the destruc tlonlst, the Iconoclast dispute or assault them. The Roosevelt Memorial as sociation undertakes to reaffirm to the people of America these certain fundamental, permanent principles upon which our re public Is builded as set forth in the utterances and exemplified in the life of the one outstand ing typical American—Theodore Roosevent. —George N. Keniston, State Campaign Director, Roose velt Memorial Association. National Tuberculosis Association, Which Sponsors Sale, Will Place 650,000,000 Seals on Sale to Finance the Fight Against Tuberculosis. ERICAN RED HEALTH AND A HAPWNfWVEAM The Red Cross Seal—as millions of Americans know it to day, is an agent of happiness and health. It was orig inated in 11)07 by Miss Lmily I'. Bissell, of Wilmington, Delaware, who learned through Jacob Itiis of somewhat simi lar seals that were sold in Norway for the j'urposo of raising funds with which to fight tuberculosis. Miss Bissell persuaded the Ameri can Red Cross to take up the idea with the result that seals were sold in a limited number of communities in 1908. The sale yielded a revenue of approximately $3,000. The Red Cross then decided to issue the seals each year and to turn the proceeds over to the National Tuberculosis association and its alliliated societies for the pur- I pose of financing the campaign against tuberculosis. The number of seals sold in America increased by leaps and bounds until in 1017 the total reached 180,000.000. This year the seals arc again on sale beginning December 1. More than half a billion seals have been printed for distribution to state and local agents. In addition to the seals "Health Bonds" in denomina tions ranging from $5.00 to $100.00 are to be sold in lieu of seals to large contributors, who do not send out a sufficient quantity of mall In December to make use of all the seals they would like to purchase. The combined quotas of all the state or ganizations call for more than $6,500, 000 to carry out the intensive educa tional campaign being conducted by the National Tuberculosis Association and its 1.000 affiliated societies. The intensive sale of these seals represents a practical demonstration of every lesson that bus been learned regarding scientific dN:r'bntion. Ex perts of the highest standing in sales management have co-operated to the extent of assuring those interested that every resident of the United States will have an option unity to buy Rert Cross Christmas Seals, THURSDAY. OCTOBER 30. 191!) THIS IS THE RED CR0S5 CHRISTMAS SEALS GIRL BEVERLY HAYES R!:D CROSS SiALS fR. HEALTH AGENTS Idoa Was Originated in This Country in 1908 by Miss Emiiy P. Sisseli, of Wit mington, Oel. Beverly Hayes says: "Buy Red Cross Christmas Seals. They protect little children from the ravages of tuberculosis. They bu.Md a barrier of health about the workers of the nation. They protect homes—your home. "They spell hope, assurance and )hysieal and economic rehabilitation to more than one million people In the United States who have tubercu losis. If you purchase enough Red Cross Christmas Seals, the death rate of this dread plague will be materially reduced. "Last year 150,000 people fell victims of the disease. Twelve thousand of these were little children. Think it! This death toll is needless. If we all part in the sale this year, next year's death rate will he small er. It will be reduced year by year until eventually tuberculosis has pass ed into the oblivion which has already engulfed smallpox, leprosy and typhoid fever." FIRST SALE YIELDED $3,000 Vi.'. r. wUhKERS NEEDED TO FIGHT WHITE PLAGUE National Tuberculosis Association, Which Sponsors Red Cross Seal Sale, is Conducting Intensive Educational Campaign. A call for volunieers lo fight under the standard of the National Tubercu losis Association and its 1000 affiliated bodies throughout the country against tuberculosis—humanity's most vicious foe—has been sounded. A recent health survey, made by the experts of the National Tuberculosis Association, brought to light some startling statistics with regard to the prcvelency of the disease. The find ings of this survey have revealed a national menace, which must be eradi cated. The figures show that each year 150,000 persons die of the dis ease and that there are approximate ly 2,000,000 cases of tuberculosis in the United States today. Theuntauglil consumptive—one who does not know the rules of health, is an indefatigable spreader of the dis ease. Wherever he goes, he leaves be hind him a trail of the deadly germs. The National Tuberculosis Associa tion and its affiliated bodies have en tered upon an intensive nulioiijwide educational campaign. The campaign will be localized and within a short time there will be ample work for many thousands of volunteers. The National Tuberculosis Associa tion and its affiliated bodies are fi nanced largely by the annual sale of Red Cross Christmas Seals. To make possible the carrying out of this cam paign, more than 650,000,000 seals will be offered for sale during the holi days. State and local tuberculosis associations have at hand valuable local data regarding the disease and actual conditions in the where they are located, of these bodies eagerly quiries. 2.

In October, 1902, the International Anti Tuberculosis Association, then meeting in Berlin, adopted the cross as the emblem of the world-wide light against tuberculosis. It was proposed by Dr. G. Sersiron, of I'aris. It is a com bination of the Croix de Lorraine and the cross of the Creek Catholic church. Both crosses are symbolic of charity and help io humanity. Their combined features were selected nnd adopted as the symlio! of the hope of civilization. Four years later, in 1!)06. the double barred Red Cross was car ried into this country. It was in 1906. the National Tuberculosis Association was formed, and for the three Inter vening years the cross lias been car ried over the United Slates by the National Tuberculosis Association and Us fflliliated bodies, which now num ber one thousand. The work of these organ'/at'ons is financed chiefly by the Red Cross Christmas Seal suie.
