It is for the IJrowns and Charnoskis and O'Reillys that the American Red Cross, through its chapter Home Service Sections, provides monetary relief In the form of loans (without interest I, gnat! and allowances. And practically every chapter in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky is preparing to assist, or has prepared and is assisting the Drowns, the Charnoskis and the O'Heill.vs. They are also pre paring to assist relatives of men serving In the armlet and navies of our allies. Fully Explains Loan.. When II becomes necessary for a Red Cross chapter to loan money to an enlisted man's family, the conditions of repayment are thoroughly explained, the obligations put In writing and signed and the collection of the loan carefully followed up when It becomes due. Aa has already been stated, the Red Cross does not charge Interest for a loan. Grants may be made necessary by demands which the family income and government allowance cannot be expected to provide for, such as funerals and need of special training to create or increase earning power. Orants in small amounts may be required to tide over a period of acute distress until proper inquiry can be made and a plan of service decided upon. Allowances are payments at regular intervals of a stated sum by the Red Cross Home Service Sections to the relatives of a soldier or sailor. They are usually limited, though not always, to those not entitled to government allowance, such as, for example, the families of men serving for ono of our allies. One may wonder how a Red Cross chapter, buying several thousand dollars worth of supplies monthly to be made into surgical dressings, woolen ocks and convalescent gowns, can pond money for civilian relief work. Have Civilian Relief Funds. Last summer American Red Cross chapters raised more than a million dollars for the Rod Cross War Fund. Each chapter was permitted to claim a refund of up to 25 per cent of the amount collected for the expenses of the campaign, for the purchase of raw supplies and for its civilian relief work. In making claim for refunds, each chapter was required to state how much of the refund was to be exAnd now pended for civilian relief. the chapters are obligated to keep the civilian relief portion for civilian relief work.
