Home Phone 48 Cumberland Phone 1 95 WASHINGTON ANENUE " UNION CITY, TENNj Washington. (Special.) 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 Bed 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 Wij? 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 In Paris when the armistice was signed, summoned a conference there of the heads of all the Hed Cross Commissions in Europe to canvass the situation. After con sidering all the factors it whs 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 lied Cross, makes possi ble the consummation of this plan un der the most favorable conditions. Aceounts Audited by War Department. "Detailed reports to Congress and a complete audit of its accounts by the Wtr Department will constitute the final record of Hed Cross activity dur ing f ie "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 ranrt and his associates desire to give a brief resume of Hed Cross war time activities to the American people, to whom the Hed 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 casli and supplies to the American Hed Cros. more than $400, 000,030. No value can be placed upon the Contributions of service which have been given without stint andf tentirues at great sacrifice by millions of our people. "The effort of the A rienn Red Cross in this war lias constituted by far the largest voluntary gifts of mojey, of hand and heart, ever con tributed purely for the relief of hu man suffering. Through the Hed Cross the Tieait .and spirit of the whole American people have been mobilised to take care of our own, to relieve the misery incident to the war, and also to reveal to the world the supreme Ideals of our national life. "I-'veryoiio who lias had any part In this war effort of the Hed Cross is en titled! to congratulate himself. o thanks from anyone could be equal In value to the self satisfaction every one should feel for the part taken. Fully S,000,000 American women have exerted thoniselvos In Red Cross serv ice. Has Over 17,000,000 Adult Members. "When we entered the war the American Rod Cross had about .100.000 members. Today, as the result of the recent Christmas membership Roll Call, there are upwnn'i of 17,000,000 full paid members outside of the mem bers of the Junior Red Cross, number ing perhnps 9,000,000 school children additional. "The chief effort of the Red Cross during the war has been to care for ir men In 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, hut could not do itself.' "The Hed Cross endeavor in France has naturally been upon nn exception ally large scale where service has been rendered to the American Army and to the French Army a:i:l the French people as well, the latter par ticularly during the trying period when the Allied World was wailing for the American Army to arise In force and power. Hospital einenri'iicv service for our nnny In France has rreatly diminished, but the Hed Cross Is stli! being called upon for service upon a large scale in the great base hospitals, where thousands of Ameri can sick and wounded are still receiv ing attention. At these hospitals the Red Cross supplies huts and facilities for tfte amusement and recreation of the men as they become convalescent. Our Army of Occupation in 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 Cross rirriir,- hostilities. The Arniv Canteen iPtually increased since the armistice. "As for work among the French peo ple, now that hostilities have ceased. ;he 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 Cross policy in France henceforth shall be to have punctilious regard to its. every responsibility, but 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 sation. "The Amcrhcan Red Cross work in ranee 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 colls in France, of whom 7,000 were actively engaged when the armistice was signed. An indication of the pres ent scale of the work will be obtained from the fact that the services of 6,000 persons are still required. "Oar 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 people, through their Red Cross, sent a practical message of sympathy and relief, for which the government and people of Italy have never ceased to express their gratitude. Supplies and Personnel to Near East, "The occasion for such concentra tion of effort in Italy, England, Bel gium and even in France Saving 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 East who have hitherto been inaccessible to out side assistance, but whose sufferings have been upon an appalling scale. The needs of these peoples are so vast that government alone can meet them, but the American Red Cross is making an effort to relieve Immediately the more acute distress. "An extensive group of American workers has been dispatched to carry vitally needed supplies, and to work this winter in the various Halkan coun tries. In order to co-ordinate their ac tivities, a Balkan commission has been established, with headquarters at Home, 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 invalids. An American Red Cross Commission has also been appointed to aid in relieving the suffering of Rus sian prisoners still confined in German prison camps. "An linitortant commission is still working in Palestine. Through the war special co-operation has been given to the Armenian and Syrian Re lief Commission, which was the only agency able to carry relief in the in terior of Turkish dominions. Red Cross Will Continue. "Red Cross effort la thus far flung. It will continue to be so. But the movement represented by this work bas likewise assumed an intimate place In the dally life of our people at home. The army of workers which has been recruited and trained during the war must not be demoblllied. All our ex perience In the war shows clearly that there Is an unlimited field for service of the kind which can be performed with peculiar effectiveness by the Red Cross. What its future tasks may be It Is yet impossible to forecast. We know that so long as there Is an Amer ican army 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 societies of the world to develop a program of extended ac tivities in the interest of humanity. The conception involves not alone ef forts to relieve human suffering, but to prevent it; r.ot alone a movement by the people of an individual nation, but an attempt to arouse all people to a sense of their resiwnsibility for the welfare of their fellow beings through out the world. It is a program both ideal and practical. Ideal in that its supreme aim Is nothing 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 t lie crisis which is daily recurrent in the lives of all peoples. "For accomplishing its mission in (lie years (if peace which must lie ahead of us the lied Cross will require the ablest possible leadership, and must enjoy the continued.support, sym pathy, and participation in its work of the whole American people. It is 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 ah our people gave of themselves throughout the war is the best assurance that our Red Cross will continue to receive that co-operation which will make its work a source of pride and inspiration to every Amer ican." Mr. Davison, as chairman of the In ternational Commission of the Ameri can Red Cross, has undertaken to rep resent the American Red Cross in the prep:; rut Ion of the program for extend ed Red Cross activities, and will spend 'a- . : rvV s i i Et ;-p ft eonsul'iiiion whh other ll.d Cress si-' Mcs ' ! f'at pnrpov. t r.: v. av c ii vcii. of the amtk U'A' I';".!'
