SHANGHAI, - (By MaiL) Fifteen millions of dollars were to have been spent in delousine Siberia if the American Red Cross had remained!; that country. This was revealed re cently by Major E. H. Charette who has come to Shanghai to supervise the distribution of two shiploads of med- 1!-- I... J J. 1 1 111 icinai supplies, vaiueu a, nail. a mill ion dollars, which have been sent here and are to be given to some 300 hos- pnais in imna. "Lice may yet defeat, Socialism," said Lenine. "He is right," says Major Charette. The Red Cross officer was captur ed by the Bolshevists at Karsnayask and held prisoner for. 'some time. While he was in captivity the typhus was raging in the city, which had a population of 300,000. There were more than 80,000 deaths during the time the major was prisoner. Six of the victims were Red Cross men. Although virtually . prisoners the Red Cross men directed the fight against the disease and worked day and night to check the epidemic. It was then that the program for a se ries of quarantine stations, and de lousing plants was mapped out. Foi this program $15,000,000 was to hove been asked. But before more than the. initial steps could be taken the Red Cross" was withdrawn from tht field. "It is the most uncleanly nation ir the world," said Major Charette "but if we could have established the quarantine stations and carried ou( tn.r p . gram I believe the typhus p.'ouikui would have been solved. Supplies brought here for distri bution to hospitals came in the steam ships Hannmet and Simbirsk. The supplies have been placed in the god won of , the Fearon-Daniel Company and plans for distribution are being made, Besides the two shiploads of sup plies sent here for China's hospitals, another shipload was taken by Cap tain E. S, Jones to Gensan, Korea, and from there trans-shipped to Seoul where it was turned over to A. W. Taylor, chairman of the Chosen chap ,ter of the American Red Cross. One shipload of supplies was stopped, en route to Siberia, at Kobe, Japan, and the officers here have not heard what disposition hnB been made of it. ,, . Supplies valued at between two millions and three millions of dollar? still remain in the Red Cross ware house in Siberia and the question of their disposal has not yet been set. tied. It is the belief of the officers here, however, that a major portion of these goods will be .'sent, to the Philippines and Hawaii. Liberal sup port came to the Red Crocs from the Island peoples during the war and it is Major Charette'a opinion that due recognition of the fact will be given. Method of disposing of the mate rials here. has not yet been definitely determined. Major Charette looks very favorably on Nichol's sugges tion that a questionaire be sent to the hospitals in order that an efficient system may be worked out. It mav be six months before the supplies nave ueen disposed 01. In the lot Of POOds Btill In Sihpria there are many bulky articles, such as furniture and fittings. No at tempt will be made to send these home but, instead, they will be brought lo Shanghai and sold. Great; care is to be used in the dis tribution of the Red Cross supplies here, In Korea and in the Islands. Each hospital will be given a rating according to its requirements, ca pacity and efficiency and it will be on mis oasis that the allotments will be made.

(By Mail) The hard times which struck Japa"h with great suddenness recently have had many strange effects, among them being that of sending many a fair Japa nese damsel out into the matrimonial market to look for a husband who can support her. In Japali marriages are contracted through professional match makers to a far greater ex tent than, is the case in other eoun tries, and these are now profiting by the wind which is blowing ill for most other people in Japan. "Never before have we had so many women applicants," said cne of the , most prominent marriage agents. "As a ' rule, our customers are men looking for wives, but lately the old order has been reversed. There may, be other reasons, but we who are in the business think that the bard times are causing' women to seek safety by finding husbands to protect tliem. - There are a number of wo- men ef the hetter classes among our clients." ' ' . ." . - The Bureau of Statistics tells a similar tale. Its records show that a tremendous increase is taking place in the number of marrafces recorded during the past two months. A rath er novel example of the steps taken by young women to find helpmeets is found in the following advertisement in which a Japanese maiden seeks to land a foreign husband. It reads! "Japanese young lady, aged 20, of best Samurai family, wishes-to break with old customs and to Marry a for eigner. Willing to learn English nnd to wear Western clothes." Another effect of the times is the sxodus of farmers' sons from the uni versities r.nd. other institutions for higher learning in Tokyo. These "oung men are boinjr called back to 'he farms by their pnrents, who made 'arge sums of money during the boom nd who thus felt rble to give their 'ons good educations. Now the hard imes has hit them badly, and the "ounfe men must forego their careers.
