That which has followed in the record of the Red Cross in helping to win this war and to relieve the suffering growing out of it, constitutes something of which every American citizen has a right to be proud. Every American Red Cross worker must feel a sense of gratitude in having had a share in it all. , "The moment is now come to prepare for peace. Until peace is really here and our soldiers home there can be no relaxation in any Red Cross effort incident to active hostilities. "But even with peace, let no one suppose that the work of the Red Cross is finished. Millions of American boys are still under arms. Thousands of them are sick and wounded. Owing to the shortage in shipping, it may take a year or more to bring our boys home from France. But whatever the time, our protecting arms must be about them and their families over the whole period which must elapse before the normal life of peace can be resumed. "Our soldiers and sailors are enlisted until the Commander-in-Chief tells them there is no more work for them to do in the war. Let every Red Cross member and worker and this means both men and women show our returning soldiers and sailors that to care for their health, welfare and happiness we are enlisted for no less period than they are. "The cessation of war will reveal a picture of misery such as the world has never- seen before, especially in the many countries which cannot help themselves. The American people will expect the Red Cross to continue to act as their agent in repairing broken spirits and broken bodies. Peace terms and peace conditions will determine how we may best minister to the vast stricken areas which have been harrowed by war, and for this great act of mercy the heart and spirit of the American people must continue to be mobilized through the American Red Cross. "On behalf of the War Council, we accordingly ask each member of our splendid body of workers throughout the land to bear in mind the solemn obligation which rests upon each one to 'carry on We cannot abate one instant in our efforts or in our spirits. There will be abundance of work to do, and specific advices will be given, but even at the moment of peace let no Red Cross - ' 'In Less Than Five Months WHAT WOMEN ARE DOING Hog Island, World's Largest FOR SOLDIERS IN PRANCE Shipyard, Was Half Compl&ioi: Fight in the Ranks of the Red Cross Against Pain, Disease and Death. They have known very well the risks they were taking the two thousand and more women who have gone to Fran6e fpr varied services under the American Red Cross, and the more than nine thousand nurses whom the American Red Cross has assigned to foreign duty under the United States Army and Navy Nurse Corps. They went under orders, as soldiers do; prepared for any emegencles, as soldiers do; they assumed many strange and unforeseen tasks, as soldiers do. Literally, they went as fighters, agaipst pain, disease and death. A "mobile surgical unit" of nurses those words don't mean very much, perhaps, the first time we hear them. But see such an unit follow an army up to an advanced post; see how the nurses work with steady hands beside the surgeons as the stretchers with the newly wounded are brought In. See thousands of them in evacuation hospitals, base hospitals, convalescent hospitals, tuberculosis hospitals; some of them In French military hospitals where sometimes our men are sent; see them with their specialized skill in head surgery, or fracture work, or psychiatry; all these women who keep head and hand cool and steady, when the ambulances unload great harvests of wounded. Then we say the words "Our Nurses," as we say "Our Soldiers," "Our Sailors," "Our Marines." On the night of March 25th, when were fast advancing, and already within six kilometers of Annel, an outpost of Compiegne, two American doctors remained, who under order of the French government, had sent the patients and personnel of their hospital farther back the night before. The artillery was deafening, but the American Ambulance sections kept bringing their wounded to Annel. These doctors said that as long as the American boys brought them wounded they would operate. Two nurses volunteered from Compiegne, and so in the deserted chateau the two surgeons, the two nurses and the ten drivers worked calmly on, while the bazz of aeroplanes shook the air, ana the blasting guns shook the earth. the-Germa- j Outlines Tasks That Lie Ahead Next week's Red Cross Christmas Roll Call for members is characterized as "the foundation of the Red, Cross" by Chairman H. P. Davison of the Red Cross War Council in his statement describing the future of the Red Cross. "Wherever our soldiers and sailors may be, the Red Cross will stay with them until they are demobilized. Noth': ins which we may do will be left undone, either for the men in the war zone, their families at home, to whom will continue to be devoted the ministrations of the Red Cross Home Service, promises Mr. Davison. Volunteer Aid Needed. "The wake of the war will, however, reveal the prevalence of disease, and give rise to emergencies which in all parts of the world will call for unlimited voluntary effort. "Here will be the opportunity for the American Red Cross. But even, our Red Cross must not act and cannot act most effectively alone; we must labor in with the national Red Cross and relief societies of other nations, to the end 'that not alone the heart of America but the heart of all mankind may be mobilised on behalf of suffering humanity." Mr. Davison declares the American Red Cross to bo planning "to develop its permanent organization in this country on a scale never before contemplated in time of peace." Home Work to Grow. "Study," he says, "is being given by the national organisation not alone to problems of international relief, but to plans In this country for enlarged home service, promotion of public health education, development of nursing, care and prevention of acci-- i lines which, dents and other may contribute to the health and happiness of men, women and children. The work of supplementing governmental activities, which the Red Cros3 will be caHed upon to do in'all parts of the world, will be upon a great scale, but it will call for human service rather than for large expenditures. "What the Red Cross needs now is not so much contributions of money, as the continued devotion and 'loyalty of its members. Join and Serve! "Annual membership involves the payment of only one dollar. "The money thus received not only defrays all the administrative expenses of the organization, but leaves a substantial balance, which, together with all funds subscribed directly for relief, are solely devoted to that pured Through three takings of Belgrade,! first when the city was taken by the Austrlans, again when It was retaken uj uie oeiuiuus, uuu sun aguiu wui-it was taken back by the Germans and Austrians together, an American Red Cross nurse, Mary Gladwin, worked In the operating room. In that first capture, when nine thousand wounded crowded tthe wards and halls and yard of the and doctor and nurse worked together for day and night without stopping, giving to each operation an average of six minutes, and employing emergencies inspired by the desperate need of the moment, they did not know that the city had been taken until all the stretchers brought Austrian wounded, and Austrian doctors came to their relief. Several hundred women are working over there In the American Red Cross canteens. There are about two hundred of these canteens along the French and American lines of communication, and the women are working under great pressure, feeding thousands of soldiers. The Red Cross is also establishing canteens by military request at a number of Aviation thousand-bed-hospltal I Camps. American women conduct worker falter.

Everyone of these canteens has something of the genius of home about it; and it Is because of this, no less than the for cleanliness and rest and refreshment, that the French government has given the responsibility for maintaining canteens for both armies to the hands of the American Red Cross.

Surgeon General of the United States Public Health Service, these diseases will be especially prevalent this winter unless the people are particularly careful to obey health instructions. "The present epidemic," said Surgeon General Blue, "has taught by bitter experience how readily a condition beginning apparently as a slight cold may go on to pneumonia and death. Although the worst of the epidemic is over, there will continue to be a large number of scattered cases, many of them mild and unrecognized, which will be danger spots to be guarded against" The Surgeon General likened the present situation to that after a great fire, saying, "No fire chief who City WorR at Country Pices.

"Not necessarily another large epidemic," said the Surgeon General, "but unless the people learn to realize the seriousness of the danger they will be compelled to pay a heavy death toll from pneumonia and other respiratory diseases. Common Colds Highly Catching. "It is encouraging to .observe that people are beginning to learn that ordinary coughs and colds are highly catching and are spread from person to person by means of droplets of germ laden mucus. Such droplets are sprayed Into the air when careless or Ignorant people cough or sneeze without covering their mouth and nose. It Is also good to know that people have learned something about the value of fresh air. In summer, when people are largely out of doors, the respiratory diseases (coughs, colds, pneumonia, eta) are Infrequent; in the fall, as people begin to remain Indoors, the respiratory diseases Increase; In the winter, when people are prone tp stay In badly ventilated, overheated rooms, the respiratory diseases become very KlHW' A food map of Europe today shows not a single country In which the future does not hold threat of serious difficulties and only a small part which Is not rapidly approaching the famine point With the exception of the Ukraine only those countries which have maintained marine commerce have sufficient food supplies to meet actual needs until next harvest, and even in the Ukraine, with stores accumulated on the farms, there is famine In the large centers of population.

OF SOLDIERS' FAMILIES seat of government the little nation's first thought was to express her gratitude to the Commission for Relief in Belgium for preserving the lives of millions of her citizens. Germany, on the other hand, need not figure in such a map for Americans because there is no present indication that we shall be called on at all to take thought for the food needs of Germany. Germany probably can care for her own food problem If she Is given access to shipping and Is enabled to distribute food to the cities with dense populations, which are the trouble centers. England, France, the Netherlands and Portugal, all of which have been maintained from American supplies, have sufficient food to meet Immediate needs, but their future, presents serious difficulties. The same Is true of Spain and the northern neutral countries Norway, Sweden and Denmark whose ports have been open and. who have been able to draw to some degree upon foreign supplies. Most of Russia is already In tho throes of famine, and 40,000,000 people there are beyond the possibility of help. Before another spring thousands of them inevitably must die. This applies as well to Poland and practically throughout the Baltic re gions, with conditions most serious In Finland. Bohemia, Serbia, Roumanla and Montenegro have already reached the famine point and are suffering a heavy toll of death. The Armenian population Is falling each week as hunger takes its toll, and In Greece, Albania and Roumanla so serious are the food shortages that famine Is near. Although starvation is not yet Imminent, Italy, Switzerland, Bulgaria and Turkey are in the throes of serious stringencies. In world In order to fulfill America's pledge relief we will have to export every ton of food which can be handled through our ports. This means at the very least a minimum of 20,000,000 tons compared with 6,000,000 tons prewar exports and 11,S20,000 tons exported last year, when we weFe bound by the ties of war to the European allies. If we fail to .lighten the black spots on the hunger map or If we allow apportions to become darker the very peace for which we fought and bled will be threatened. Revolt and anarchy inevitably follow famine. Should th happen we will see in other parts of Europe a repetition of fhe Russian debacle and o"r fV'H f - world pe. will have been in u,T. "Fill1' Danger Signs. CONVALESCENTS The Surgeon General warned especially against certain danger signs, such as "decline" and "colds which hang on." These, he explained, were often the beginning of tuberculosis. "If yon do not get well promptly, If your cold seems to hang on or your health and strength decline, remember that thest. are often the early signs of tuberculosis. Place yourself at once under tho care of a competent physician. Tuberculosis is curable in the early stages.
