At the present time National Head

Cross Chapters which still are helping
tolve the veteran's problem of adjust
lng himself to a normal civilian status
that the greater part of the cost of this
aervice is borne. Of tho total sum
spent for veterans' relief last year,
National Headquarters expended a to
tal of more than $2,600,000, while tho
remaining disbursement of approxi
mately $7,000,000 represents the con
tribution of Chapters in this country
wide effort to assist the Government
ti providing the aid sorely needed by
these men and their families,
An Ever Expandlna Problem
. That the problem of the disabled
trice man ' is ever-expanding and
probably will not reach the peak be
fore 1925, Is the assertion of well-informed
Government officials, and that
tfiW Red Cross Chapters regard It
aa their most important wort is evi
dence that toe expansion is in nowise
confined to a particular soctlon but ta,
en the contrary, nation-wide At the
end of the fiscal year, June SO, 1921,
there were 20,300 disabled service men
In the 1,692 United State Public
Health Service Contract and Govern
ment Hospitals and Soldiers Howes,
and that number ta increasing at 1
rate of 1,000 a month.
Thousands of these men receiving
medical treatment, compensation and
vocational training from tho Govern
ment today, started their efforts to
obtain them through the Red Cross
Chapter- The- Chapter, acting as the
disabled man's agent in claims against
the Government, informs the man as to
tho procedure heccHsnry to gain for
him that which Is provided him by
Federal statute. His applications for
compensation, medical treatment and
training are properly filed with the aid
f the Red Cross Chapter,
Many Forms of Assistance
If there is delay before tin man's
dalm la acted upon, the Red Cross
Chapter lends the man money to meet
the imperative needs of himself and
Ida dependents.
Most vital to the man's gaining full
benefit from the Government's care la
haeping his mind free from worry about
hi home. Keeping the veteran's fam
ily from hardship of every kind and
Informing him of its welfare is an
other province of the Chapter. Free
from fear on this score, the man's re
covery and advancement usually la
rapid.
Bvery month during the last year,
tho American Red Cross has given
I mIiw l9 rrwi Vlnit rm annthor an
average of 129,213 former service men
aod their families. An Indication of
the extent of tho faith reposed in tho
Bed Cross Chapter is to be found in
tho fact that there were 356,544 r
jtueeta for friendly aid to the solution
"of personal problems.

DUST SHOWN TO
BE BENEFACTOR
Bane of Housewife Plays Vita!
Part in Life.
CAUSE OF QUEER PHENOMENA
Dust Falls on the Ocean, Yellow Rains
in the Yukon and Red Snows in
Greenland and Other Arctic and
Alpine Regions Among Freaks
Without Dust We Would Have No
Rain and Coloring of Our Sunseta
- Would Bo Almost Entirely Lost
Washington, I). C. "The fulling, of
a thick coating of dust upon a steam
er in the Yellow sea and the attenduut
darkening of the atmosphere so that
willing wos dlfllcult, recently reported
lu news dispatches, la not such an
uncommon occurrence In that part of
tho world, or even in mid oceun,"
says n bulletin of the Natlonul Ueo
gruphic society from Washington, D. O.
"Besides the duat full on the ocean,
which on the face of It seems a joke,
there are sometimes yellow ruins in
the Yukon and ml snows In Green
land and other arctic and alpine re
gions," tho bulletin adds.
The' yellow rnlnsi so called because
the ground becomes covered with n pe
culiar lino yellow deposit, are unuully
found to be caused by the pollen of
plrwjv trees, growing miles und miles
away, which is caught up by the winds
and curried until their fury has abated,
und then dropped. The 'red Know'
seen in tlto arctic is innde by a wind
pluced deposit of the motile algue,
Chlnmydomonas, In the nuclei of
whtch are red pigment spots. Other
kinds of algue sometimes reproduce
In such numbers that they form the
greenish deposits seen In fresh water.
Beautiful Sunsets Due to Dust.
"Dust, however, that bane of the
housekeeper and tho curse of the auto- L
mobile tourist, plays a vital part in
our lives. Though it sometimes seems
to suffocate us, without it we could
have no rain, as the vapor would not
condense and without its power of
refraction our daylight would not be
6o bright, and the coloring of our
sunsets would be almost entirely lost.
"The loess of northern China, a line
yetlmv powder brought by the winds
from tin.' desert regions beyond and
deposited lu places several hundred
feot in thickness, has been tilled for
thousunds of years, without any arti
ficial fertilization nnd without signs
of exhaustion. " Beds of volcanic dust
are to bo found in Kansas and Ne
braska today, in some places as much
us pQ feet in thickness, though there
weru no volcanoes In tho past and
none at present within hundreds of
miles of the deposits. The wind is
the culprit or benefactor.
"Steamers out in the middle of the
Atlantic often have their sails red
dened with dust blown from the Sa
hara, and sometimes the rains of
southern Europe are colored by dust
from the same source. In 1901 four
days of March winds are believed to
iittve spread oyer central Europe
ibout 2,000,000 tons of Sahara dust,
most of it falling south of the Alps,
hut some of It being carried as far as
the Ilaltlc sea.
"Wind-blown dust also gives rise to
4tme Interesting phenomena. When
lust fallrt on glaciers or deposits of
snow near the mountain tops, every
lust purtlcle melts its way through the
ice, sometimes several 'inches in
depth, and if there are a great many
of-these 'dust wells' the mountain
climber must watch his steps. Use
wa8.Jnado of this knowledge by en
gineers In melting snows preliminary
to the building of the New Bergen
railway in southern Norway. ,
No Mountain Peak Above "Dust Zone."
"It is probable that no mountain top
Is high enough above the earth to be
entirely free from some dust, espe
cially thut thrown out during volcanic
eruptions. - In a great explosion, such
M that of Krakatoa in 1883, dust Is
shot into the upper atmosphere rather
than nicked ud bv ft Dust particles
from Krakatoa traveled around thai
world, some of It completing Its first
trip in 15 days. Before, this giant
shook the world with its mighty Up
heaving we were ignorant of the winds
that prevailed at over ten miles above
the earth's surface. The dust so
colored these upper reaches that
canny scientists were able to trace up
per wind movements, t6 record them
upon their charts, and to tell us that
mighty air streams are flowing 20
miles above oar heads.
"Long before meteorologists realized
the part played by the dust in the up
per atmosphere following volcanic ex
plosions, they recorded as phenomenal
and Inexplicable certain dense, dry
fogs that joelther abundant rains nor
fierce winds drove away. Today we
can easily explain that because we
know that the fog' was really dust
In the atmosphere high above the
rain and wind clouds. In some places
these fogs' made the sun invisible
until It had risen high above the hori
zon and colored and reflected the
light' of the new moon until it ap
peared as bright as that of the fuft
moon at midnight'
"Beneath the earth's surface tho
dust plays as fantastic a, pnrt aa ft
does alove Its crust. In 'mines It
Increases Inflammability and assists
In explosl'w of gases which would
otherwise be Incomtustible, probably
acting la the Pane cpacfty as the
cavktic fent in a chemical reaction."
REPORT OIL AfiD GOLD
DISCOVERIES l!l ALASKA
Prospectors Investigate Seepage
on Cape SimpsorvTell of
N vein at Girtiwood.
A report of the discovery of a new
oil area in Aluska and of new gold
strike near Ulrdwood, with quartz run
ning $1,400 a ton on assay, is con
tained lu dispatcher to Seattle from
the northern territory.
The gold strike bus started a rush
to Glrdwood district, where six-year-old
Addle Reno discovered a vein of
free gold, according to i dlsputch from
0. J. Llneke, The vein is on lVngruin
Creek, north of Glrdwood. Andrew
Miles, a prospector, struck a good vein
between rhyollte slate, and the ledges
are described as large and continuous.
The report of the oil area neur 1'olnt
Burrow Is based on word from 11. D,
Adams, bead of an oil prospecting
party, which returned to Nome from
Walnwrlght and 1'olnt Barrow.
"The oil seepages occur on two or
three conspicuous hills of the barren
and mountainous Cape Simpson' the
dlsputch says. "The 'largest seepage
rises oil a bill four miles southwest of
the cape and more than ft mile inland.
"Another mnller seepage was found
on a hill 400 yards from the shore, ap
proximately three miles northwest of
Capo Simpson. The flow of oil down
the hillside may be seen from the
coast. The two, main seepages are
similar, the source betng well up the
hills. Both flow several hundred yards
Into lakes."
'A Standard Oil party of prospectors
which left Nome about the same time
as the Adams party IS now investigat
ing in tho same section.
