OBLITERATED. HIEROGLYPHS Rigors of Western Climate Caused Khedive's Gift to Disintegrate. Painting Ancient Obelisk With Special Preparation Stay- ed Decay Ruined Por-tions Restored. New Yorkers awoke one morning to find In their breakfast headlines the news that'a zealous park employee had discovered signs of disintegration on the surface of the city's most treasured antique Cleopatra's Needle. Photographs revealed that the monolith wasi peeling, large pieces of sandstone having fallen from the tall shaft, carrying with them part of the prized hieroglyphs. London's twin sister of Cleopatra's Needle was reported as resting comfortably and endnrlngly on the banks the application of paint, constitutes a most vital means of furthering the conservation of our natural resources. It Is, moreover, the most economical method of sustaining the appearance and general upkeep of any community. A structure coated with sheets of India rubber would not be as, well protected from decay as a structure coated with a good oil paint This Is due to the fact that a sheet of rubber is not so durable or as waterproof as a thin dried film of paint The latter material when applied dries to a continuous elastic film containing finely divided particles of metallic, wear resisting" pigments. A square foot of such a film upon a wooden surface costs les3 than a penny, yet it will beautify and protect a dollar's worth of surface for many years. This Is a low rate of insurance. Dwellings, barns, outbuildings, sheds, posts, fences, stock enclosures, wagons, Implements, windmills and other structures, whether of wood, iron or cement, should be preserved, through the use of paint from rapid decay. High grade paint may be used successfully for all such purposes. Colored paints will be found the most sevlceable, the coloring matter in the paint adding from two to three years to the life of the coating. paint wnicfi nas become fat be nsed f" priming either old or new work.

"The American Red Cross work in France 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 rolls In France, of whom 7,000 were actively engaged when the armistice was" signed. An indication of the present scale of the work will be obtained from the fact that the services of 6,000 persons are still required. "Our American Expeditionary Force Having largely evacuated England, the activities of the Red Cross Commis" sion there are naturajly upon a diminishing scale period. Active operations are still in progress In Archangel and Siberia. midnight, February 28. "Immediately the armistice was signed the War Council instituted studies to determine when the strictly war work of the organization would have been sufficiently matured to the direction of affairs to be resumed 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 Red Cross Commissions in Europe to canvass the situation. After all the factors it was con- to make the transition on eluded 3arch 1. The very fortunate choice of Dr. Livingston Farrand as the new chairman of the Central Committee, and thereby the permanent chief of the Red Cross, makes possthe consummation of thlsplan ible the most favorable conditions. --Accounts Audited by War Department. "Detailed reports to Congress and a complete audit of its accounts by the War Department will constitute the final record of Red Cross activity during the war. Although It has been ihS rule to make public all expendl-'tnre- s when authorised and to give derailed Information relative to all work undertaken, the War Council in turnip over Its responsibilities to Dr. d and his associates desire to give a brief resume of Red Cross war time activities to the American people, to whom the Red Cross belong, and whose generous contributions have made possible all that has been accomplished. "During the past nearly twenty-on- e months the American people have given In cash and supplies to the American Red Cross more than No value can be placed upon the contributions of service which have been given without stint and oftentimes at great sacrifice by millions of our people. "The effort of the American Red Cross in this war has constituted by iar the largest voluntary gifts of tnoney, of hand and heart, ever contributed purely for the relief of human suffering. Through the Red Cross the heart and spirit of the whole American .people have been mobilized to take care of our own, to relieve the misery Incident to the war, and also to reveal jo jthe world the supreme ideals of our nationaTtlie L "Everyone who has had any part In this war effort of the Red Cross is entitled to congratulate himself. No thanks from anyone could be equal In value to the self satisfaction everyone should feel for the part takenv Fully 8,000,000 American women have exerted themselves in Red Cross service. "Has Over 17,000,000 Adult Members. ""When we entered the war the American Red Cross had about 500,000 members. Today, as the result of the recent Christmas membership Roll Call, there are upwards of 17,000,000 full paid members outside of the members of the junior Red Cross, numbering perhaps 9,000,000 school children additional. "The chief effort of the Red Cross during the war has been to care "for our 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 General Ireland tff the U. S. Army recently said: The Red Cross has been an enterprise as vast as the war Itself. TTrom the beginning it has done those, things which the Army Medical Corps wanted done, but could not do Itself. "The Red Cross endeavor In France has naturally been upon an exceptionally large scale where service has been rendered to the American Army and to the French Army and the Utench people as1 well, the latter particularly during the trying period when the Allied World was waiting far the American Army to arise in force and power. Hospital emergency service for our army In France has greatly diminished, but the Red Cross is still being called upon for service upon a large scale In the great base hospitals, where thousands of Americas sick and wounded are still receiving attention.

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 concentration of effort in Italy, England, and even in France having naturally 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 outside 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 Cijpss 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 Balkan countries. In order to their activities, a Balkan commission has been established, with headquarters at Rome, Italy, from which point alone all the Balkan centers can be reached Bel-glum The date for the Methodist Cen tenary financial campaign has changed from April 4 to May official announcement of which is being made throughout the length and breadth of Methodism today. Several weeks ago it was found necessary to change the April date in order not to interfere with the Government plans for the forthcoming Victory Loan Drive. The selection of another date has been held in abeyance pending the decision from Washington which was forwarded headquarters of the M. E Church, South, recently. The change in this date is of wide import to all Methodists who are, at this time, lining up plans of definite action regarding their part as individ uals in the campaign. Dr. W. B. Secretary of the Centenary Commission, stated today that he ami other Centenary workers at headquar ters have, through Secretary Carter Glass, pledged the loyai' support of all Southern Methodists to the govern ment at this crucial hour and that in setting (May as a date for the Centenary drive, he knows he will have the immediate and hearty cooperation of all conference secretaries, directors, field representatives and all workers connected with the campaign.

The army of workers which has been recruited and trained during the war must not be demobilized.

"Nothing could be of greater importance 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 activities In the interest of humanity. The conception involves not alone ef forts to relieve human suffering, but to prevent it; not alone a movement by the people of an Individual nation, but an attempt to arouse all people to a sense of their responsibility for the welfare of their fellow beings throughout the world. It Is a program both ideal and practical. Ideal In that its supreme aim Is nothing less than veritable, "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 effective in meeting without delay the crisis which is dally recurrent in the lives of all peoples. "For accomplishing Its mission in the years of peace which must He ahead of us the Red Cross will require the ablest possible leadership, and must enjoy the continued support, sympathy, and participation in Its work of the whole American people.
