October 23 the 3,85-1 chapters of the
Red Cross held their annual meeting*
to elect officer* and make re[*»rt*. To
lie read at all Miene meeting* through
out the United Slate*, Ihe Ked Croas
tVar Council *ent Ihe following an
nual inoMHiige covering the work of
Ihe Red Cross for the p«*t yenr:
To Ihe t'luiptcrs of the American Red
Cross ;
The Wur Connell xend* greetings to
the chapters of the American Red
Cross on (ha occasion of their annual
meetings for 1018.
With these greetings go congratula
tions on the great work of the chapters
during the past year and, above all
thing*, on the wonderful spirit of sac
rifice and |Mitrlo(lsiii which haa per
vaded that work.
The strength of the Red Cross rests
Upon Ils chapters. They are Its bone
nnd slnew% They supply Its funds,
they supply Its men and women, they
supply Its enthiiNlnsm. Let us, then,
review together the Red Cross story
of the pitsf year.
Some Idea of I lie size to which your
Red Cross family has grown muy be
gathered front the following facts:
On May 1, 1917, Just before the ap
IHiliitiiient of the War Council, the
American Red Cross hud 48(1,194 mem
tors working through 5(12 chapters.
On July 31, 1918, the organization
numbered 20,1148.108 annual members,
besides 8.000.000 members of the
Junior Red Cross—a total enrollment
of over one-fourth the population of
the United State*.
Hlnce the beginning of the war you
of ihe chapter* have co-operated with
the War Council In conducting two wur
fund drive* and one membership drive,
In addition to the campaign on behalf
of the Junior Red Cross.
The total uelttnl collection* to date
from the first war fund have amounted
to more Mian $115.000,090. The sub
scriptions to the second war fund
amounted to upwards of $178,000.000.
From membership dues the collec
tion* have amounted to approximately
Splendid Work Done by Women.
To the foreglitg must he added that
very large contribution of muterlals
unit time given by the titillions of wom
en throughout the country In Httrglcnl
dressing*, in knitted articles, In hos
pital and refugee garment*, In canteen
work, and the other activities the chap
ter* have been culled upon to perform.
B I* estimated Mutt approximately
8.000,000 women are engaged In can
teen work and the production of relief
supplies through the chapters.
For the period up to July 1, 19X8,
American Rett Cross chapters, through
their workroom*, hail produced:
490,12»* refugee garments.
7,123.1121 hospital supplies.
10.78tt.489 hospital garment*.
10,134,501 knitted articles.
BV2.748.107 surgical dressings.
A total of 22t.282.838 articles—of an
est I mated aggregate value of at least
These articles were largely the
product of women's hands, and, tty the
same token. Infinitely more precious
than could have been llte output of
factories or muchlttes. These articles

Monty Spent In Work.
By the tenus under which the first
lied Cross war fund wu* raised, the
chapters were entitled to retain 25 |>er
cent of tit«' amount collected. In order
I defray local expenses, to carry on their
j home service work, to purchase mn
; tertuls to he utilised In chapter produc
|| lin H)u | otherwise to meet Ihe numer
,, u » calls made upon them. The chap
j ( vrs »ere thus entitled to retain nevtrly
$29,000.000 As a matter of fact, tltelr
j actual retentions amounted to only
»bout $*—.000.900.
> Out of collect Urns front annual utein
lu-rshtps, the chapters have retained
[ about $11.000.000.
From Mils total sum. therefore, of $38,*
otxt.ooo retained hy the chapters, they
have met all the oftentimes very heavy
| local demand* upon them, anti in nddl
; (tun have provided for use by national
. headquarters prodvets valued, as
S stated above, at upwards of $44,000,
T** ''»»•P»«'» have In effect returned
I" the War Council, not alone the $33.
0WÜÜM eeialued out of the war fund
j U"'«' h, ' rs,,| P due« but. In value of
actual product, an additional contribu
tion of at least $ 11,000,0(10.
It will thus been seen that during
the eighteen month* which huve
\ elaps-d since the United States en
tered the war. the American people
j will have cither |tald Iu or pledged to
j the American Red Cross for Its work
i of relief throughout tbe world. In
money or In material values, a net
total of at least $325.00» l.(XX).

Till« outpouring of generosity In ma
terial tilings has been accompanied by
a spontaneity In the giving, by an en
thulasin and a devotion in the doing,
which, after all, are greater and bigger
than could be anything measured In
terms of time or dollars.
It has been because of this spirit
which has pervaded all American Red
Croat effort In this war that the aged
governor of one of the atrlcken and
battered provinces of France stated
not long since that, though France bad
long known of America's greatness,
strength and enterprise. It remained
for Ihe American Iteil Cross In this war
to reveal America's heart.
In this country, at this moment, the
workers of the Red Cross, through Its
chapters, are helping to add to the
comfort and health of the millions of
our soldiers in 102 camps and cnnton
mentN, as well as of those traveling on
railroad traîna or embarking on ships
for duty overseas.
The home service of the Red Cross,
with Its now more than 40,000 workers.
Is extending Its ministrations of sym
pathy and counsel each month to up
wards of 1(H),000 families left behind
by soldiers at the front—a number
ever growing with the Increase of our
men under arms.
But, of course, the heart of the Red
Cross and Its money and attention al
ways move toward and focus them
selves In Europe where the American
Red Cross, us truly "the greatest moth
er in the world," Is seeking to draw "a
vast net of mercy through an ocean of
unspeakable pain."
Red Cross Worth Recognized.
Nothing Is withheld that can be
given over there to supplement the
efforts of our army and navy In caring
for our own boys. The Red Cross does
not pretend to do the work of the
medical corps of the army or the navy ;
Its purpose Is to help nnd to supple
Nor does the Red Cross seek to
glorify what It does or those who do
It ; our satisfaction Is In the result,
which, we are assured by Secretary
Baker, (leneral Pershing, General Ire
land and nil our leaders. Is of Ines
timable value and of Indispensable im
By the first of Januury your Red
Cross will have working In France up
wards of 5,000 Americans—a vivid
contrast to the little group of eighteen
men und women which, as the first Red
Cross commission to France, sailed
about June 1, 1017, to Initiate our ef
forts In Europe.
t'nder your commission to France
the work has been carefully organized,
facilities have beeu provided, and ef
fective efforts made to so co-operate
with the army as to carry out the de
termination of the American people,
anti especially of Ht» members of the
Red Cross, that our boys "over there"
shall luck for nothing which may add
to their safety, ^pmfort and happiness.
Your Red Crftts now has active, op
erating commisalons In France, in Eng
land. In Italy, In Belgium, In Switzer
land, In Palestine and In Greece. Y'ou
have sent a shipload of relief supplies
and a group of devoted workers to
northern Russia ; you have dispatched
a commission to work behind our arm
ies In eastern Siberia ; you have sent
special representatives to Denmark, to
Serbia and to the Islttud of Madeira.
~ Carrie* Message of Hope.
Your Red Cross Is thus extending re
lief to the armies and navies of our
allies; und you are carrying a practical
message of hope and relief to the
friendly peoples of afflicted Europe and
Indeed, we are told by those best In
formed In the countries of our allies
that the efforts of your Red Cross to
aid the soldiers and to sustain the
morale of the civilian populations left
at home, especially In France and
Italy, have constituted a very real fac
tor In winning the war.
The veil has already begun to lift.
The defection of Bulgaria, which by
the time this message can tv» rend tuny
have been followed by events still more
portentous, may point the way to yet
greater Red Cross opportunity and ob
ligation. "The cry front Macedonia" to
come nnd help will probably prove one
of the most appealing messages to
which the world tins ever listened.
What the Red Cross may he called
upon to do lit the further course of the
war, or with the coming of victory,
peace and reconstruction, It would he
Idle to attempt to prophesy.
But your great organization, iu very
truth "the mobilised heart and spirit
of Ihe whole American people," lias
shown Itself equal to any call, ready to
respond to any emergency.
Spirit of All Best and Highest.
The American Red Cross has become
not so much an organization as a great
movement, seeking to embody in organ
ized form the spirit of service, the
spirit of sacrifice—In short, all that Is
host and highest In the ideals and as
pirations of our country.
Indeed we cannot hut believe that
this wonderful spirit which service In
anti for the Red Cross has evoked in
this war, l* destined to become in our
national life an element of permanent
At Christmas time we shall ask the
whole American people to answer the
Red Cross Christmas roll call. It will
constitute a unique appeal to every
man. woman and child in this groat
land of ours to become enrolled In our
artny of mercy.
It Is the hope of the War Council
that this Christmas membership roll
call sltutl constitute a reconsecration |
of the whole American people, an in
