Already the American Red Cross has answered Poland's appeal for help with a $50,000 shipment of hospital tents, drugs and blankets. Devoted to a single cause—"to press forward, in a human and truly civilized spirit, the attempt lo prevent, or at least alleviate, the horrors of war"—this vast organization of 20 rnilliori members works on both sides of the battle lines, in prison camps and refugee centers. . Sixty-two nations have signed the treaty which guarantees protection of Red Cross workers. Other international pacts »re scrapped and forgotten, but this one remains inviolate. Swift, worM-wtde condemnation follows any real or alleged violation. •The'..Bed Cross was organized 75 year's ago- by a Swiss, fleriri Dunant, and its development was rapidly advanced through the efforts of Florence Nightingale, a British nurse, and an American, Clara Baflofi, the Civil tfar's "Angel of the Battlefields." Nurse Barton waged a long fight tor America's participation in the Red Cross. Th« 75th anniversary of the founding of (he Red Cross was commemorated by the recent French semi-postal, above, showing Florence Nightingale. Mrs. C. R.
