WORKERS WILL "CARRY ON." Five Dig Societies In World Wide Plan, H. P. Davison Heads International American Red Cross Commission. Dr. Livingston Farrand Permanent Leader of Peace Organization. Washington.—(Special. J-'-Henry P. Davison as chairman Issues the follow ing statement on behalf of the War Council of the American Red Cross: "To the American People: "The War Council of the American Red Cross appointed by President Wil son on May 10, 1017, to carry on the work of the American Red Cross dur ing the war, at their request and by vote of the Central Committee, ceased at midnight, February 28. "Immediately the armistice was signed the War Council instituted studies to determine when the strict ly war work of the organization would have been sufficiently matured to en able the direction of affairs to be re sumed by the permanent staff. Henry P. Davison, being tn Purls when the armistice was sliced, summoned a conference there of the heads of all the Red Cross Commissions In Europe to canvass the -situation. After con sidering all the ifaetors It was con cluded to make the transition on March 1. The very fortunate choice of Dr. Livingston Farrand as the new chairman of the Central Committee, and thereby the permanent chief ex ecutive of the Red Cross, makes possi ble the consummation of this plan un der the most favorable conditions. Accounts Audited by War Department "Detulled reports to Congress and a complete audit of Its accouuts by the War Department will constitute the fltinl record of Red Cross activity dur ing the war. Although It has been the rule to make public all expendi tures when authorized and to give de tailed Information relative to all work undertaken, the War Council In turn ing over Its responsibilities to Dr. Far rand and his associates desire to give a brief resume of Red Cross war time activities to the Amerlcau people, to whom the Red Cross belong, and whose generous contributions have made pos sible all that has been accomplished. "During the past nearly twenty-one months the American people have given In cash and supplies to the American Red Cross more than $400, 000,000. No value can be placed upon the contributions of service which have been given without stint and of tentimes at great sacrifice by millions qf our people. "The effort of the American Red Cross in this war has constituted by far the largest voluntary gifts of money, of hand and heart, ever con tributed purely for the relief of hu man suffering. Through the Red Cross the heart and Spirit of the whale American people have been mobilized to take care of our own, to relieve the misery Incident to the war, and also to reveal to the world the supreme ifleals of our national life. "Everyone who lias had any part In this war effort of the Red Cross Is en titled to congratulate himself. No thanks from anyone could be equal In value to the self satisfaction every one should feel for the part taken. Fully 8,000,000 Amerlcuu women have exerted themselves in Red Cross serv ice. Has Over 17,000,000 Adult Members. "When we entered the war the American Red Cross had about 500,000 members. Today, as the result of the recent " Christmas membership Roll Call, there are upwards of 17,000,000 full paid members outside of the mem bers of the junior Red Cross, number ing perhaps 9,000,000 school children additional. "The chief effort of the Red Cross during the war has been to care for our men !n service and to aid our army and navy wherever the Red Cross may be called on to assist. As to this phase of the work Surgeon Gen eral Ireland of the U. S. Army recent ly said : 'The Red Cross has been an enterprise as vast as the war Itself. From the beginning It has done those things which the Army Medical Corps wanted done, but could not do itself.' "The Red Cross endeavor In France has naturally been upon an exception ally large scale where service has been rendered to the American Army and to the French Army and the French people as well, the latter par ticularly during the trying period when the Allied World was waiting for the American Army to arise In force and power. Hospital emergency service for our army In France has greatly diminished, but the Red Cross is still being called upon for service upon a large scale In the great base hospitals, where thousands of Amerl can sick and wounded are still recelv ing attention. At these hospitals the Red Cross supplies huts and facilities for the amusement and recreation of the men as they become convalescent Our Army of Occupation tn Germany was followed with Medical units pre pared to render the same emergency aid and supply service which was the primary business of the Red Crass during hostilities. The Army Canteen service ilm the Use at travel fees actually Increased since toe armistice. * "As tor work' among the French peo ple, now that hostilities have ceased, the French- themselves naturally pre fer as far as possible to provide for their own. It has accordingly been de termined that the guiding principle of Red Gross policy In France henceforth shall be to have punctilious regard to Its every responsibility, b« to direct Its efforts primarily to assisting French relief societies. The liberated and devastated regions of France have been divided by the government Into small districts, each officially assigned to a designated French relief organi zation. "The American -Red Cross work In France was Initiated by a commission of eighteen men who landed on French shores June 13, 1917. Since then some 9,000 persons have been upon the rolls In France, of whom 7,000 were actively engaged when the armistice wps signed. An Indication of the pres ent scale of toe work will be obtained from the fact that the services of 0,000 persons are still required. "Our American Expeditionary Force having largely evacuated England, the activities of the Red Cross Commis sion there are naturally upon a dimin ishing scale period. Active operations are still In progress In Archangel and Siberia. "The work In Italy has been almost entirely on behalf of the civilian pop ulation of that country. In the critical hours of Italy's struggle the American péople, through their Red Cross, senl a practical message of sympathy and relief, for which the government ami people of Italy have never ceased to express their gratitude. Supplies and Personnel to Near East "The occasion for auch concentre tlon of effort In Italy, England, Bel gium and- even in France having natur ally and, normally diminished, It has been possible to divert supplies and personnel In large measure to the aid of those people In the Near Bust who hgve hitherto been Inaccessible to out side assistance, but whose sufferings have been upon an appalling scale The-needs of these peoples are so vas that, government alone can meet them, but toe American Red Cross la making an effort to relieve Immediately the more acute distress. "An extensive group of Amerlcau Workers has (been dispatched to carry vitally needed supplies, and to work this winter tn toe various Balkan couh tries. In order to co-ordinate their ac tivities, a Balkan commission has been established, with headquarters at Rome, Italy, from which point alone all the Balkan centers can be reached promptly. "A commission has Just reached Po land with doctors and nurses, medical supplies, and food for sick children and Invalida, An American Red Croas Commission has also been appointed to aid In relieving the suffering of Rus sian prisoners still confined In German prison camps. "An Important coulmlsslon la stllf working In Palestine. Through the war special co-operation has been given to the Armenian and Syrian Re lief Commission, which was the only ajgency able to carry relief in the In terior of Turkish dominions. Red Cress Will Continue. "Red- Cross effort Is thus far flung. It - will continue to be so. But toe movement represented by this work has likewise assumed an Intimate place ih the daily life of our people at home. The army of workers which has been recruited and trained during the war must not be demobilised. All our ex perience in toe war abows clearly that there la an unlimited field for service Of the kind which can be performed with peculiar effectiveness by toe Red Cross. What its future tasks may be It is yet impossible to forecast. 'We know that so long as there la an Amer ican array In the field the Red Cross will have a special function to perform. "Nothing could be of greater Impor tance to the American Red Cross than the plans Just set In motion by the five great Red Cross aoeietles of the world to develop a program of extended ac tivities In the Interest of humanity. The conception Involves not alone ef forta to relieve human suffering, but to -prevent It ; not alone a movement by toe people of an Individual nation, but an attempt to arouse all people to a sense of tbetr 'responsibility for the welfare of their fellow beings through out the world. It Is a program both Ideal and practical. Ideal In that lta supreme aim is oothlpg less than ver itable "Peace on earth good will to men," and practical In that It seeks to take means and measures which are actually available and make them ef fective In meeting Without delay toe crisis which Is dally recurrent In the lives of all peoples. "For accomplishing Its mission In the years of peace which must He ahead of us toe Red Cross will require toe ablest possible leadership, and must enjoy toe continued support, sym pathy, and participation In lta work of toe whole American people. It la particularly fortunate that such a man as Dr. Livingston Farrand should have been selected as the permanent head of the organization. The unstinted fashion in'which all our people gave of toomeelves throughout toe war is th« best assurance that our Red Cross will continue ,to recelv* that co-opera tion which will make Its work a source of pride und Inspiration to every Amer ican." 4 > Mr. Davison, as chairman of the In ternattonal Commission of the Ameri can Red Cross, has undertaken to rep resent toe American Red Cross In the preparation of the program for extend ed Red Croas activities, and will spend the next several months la Europe In consultation with other Red Crow soci eties for that purpose.
