PROUD OF WORK BY NEAR EAST BELIUE' Says American High C .i sionor. Coress Is Told dof Great Accomplishment Washington.-The annual report of the activities of the Near East Re lief organization, filed with Congress by Charles V. Vickrey, General Se0 rotary, constitutes the modest history of one of the greatest pieces of phil anthropic work ever undertaken and carried through by American men and women, according to well in fotermed persons in the capital. Ad er CHARLES V. VICEREY miral Mark L. Bristol, United States High Commissioner to Turkey, for example, declares: "I have been closely associated with the work of the Near East Relief committee for about 22 months. On the whole the work of this relief committee has been such that Americans should be proud of this great humane ef fort. The Near East Relief here in Constantinople is run more like a business organization than any relief organization with which I have ever come into contact." Charles V. Vickrey's summary of the activities of the Near East Relief shows the disbursement of over $60,000,000.00 in cash and supplies, contributed by the American people to the salvaging of the Christian pop ulations of the Near East. 711 American and Canadian men and women relief workers have been en gaged in this huge task on little more than a volunteer basis. 63 hospitals, with 6,522 beds, and 123 clinics; 11 rescue homes, where young girls rescued from lives of shame in Turkish harems are taught to forget their sufferings, and to be gin life anew, selfeupporting and ladependent, are maintained. 110,000 IAttle children The most remarkable feature of the work of the Near East Relief is, however, the salvation of tens of thousands of children who have lost parents and relatives during the past six years. For these little ones Amer ican generosity has provided, through the Near East Relief, 299 homes- one, in Alexandropol. Armenia, honus lag 1O000 children-where, last year. 546,00 children were housed. loethed, fed and taught, while an ad ditional 56,039, outside the Near Rast Relief orphanages, were savod from starvation and death by food and clothing sent them from the United States. Mr. Vickrey's report states that approsimately 2790,490 Armenians are stll living in the Near East, out f a pro-war population o of ver 4000,000 an d esaimtes that had it met hus for the aid gvea by the Amerlu people through the Near Mut P3.l.t tully half of those now ivisg would have perished. Food wus urniashed to 581.97T homoieu fugees during a large pert of 19209, wble 3,00000 parments, comprising 1_500,000 pounds of clothing mnt ant from the Unlted tates were dies trbuted to barefoot and ra-lad waderrm, all the way from the Mediterraea to the Cacasus meuntales.
