School Children Helping Needy Above, handiwork of boys and girls In California school--dresses they made and food they canned for jobless; below, school glr of Pittsburgh trying suit · he made on a small sohoo fellow. I N 1933 there were 6,840,000 members of the Junior Red Cross in the public, private and parochial schools ot the United States. They ranged In years from the twelve- year-old In grammar school through the senior classman in high school, anfl numbered about equally between hoys ana girls. Like tlje adult, organization---the American Keel Cross--every race ami creei have equal Tights under the Junior banner "I Serve." These boys and girls have aided in a magnificent degree in tho huge unemployment relief Trork the American Red Cross has 'been carrying on for several years. Through funds they contributed, hundreds of schools were enabled to give free- lunches to children o£ the jobless; they have collected and distributed clothing; In their manual training classes they made thousands ot toys; extended Thanksgiving and Christmas cheer to the veterans in hospitals, the aged, crippled and sick in their communities. One of their major -works -was the making of thousands of garments in their sewing classrooms from tho cloth furnished by the Red Cross. They aided In many communities in canning 1 surplus vegetables and fruits for winter stores for the needy. Two outstanding works of mercy were the distribution of thousands of Christmas greeting cards In braille writing for the blind, and the children's toy party given In Ellsworth and Auburn, Maine, following devastating fires which made several hundred families homeless, and destroyed all o£ their household possessions. The children had been reclotheil, but jt occurred to Red Cross -workers that they had lost their valuable possessions, too-their dolls, books, wagons and other playthings. Junior Red Cross members In ten cities -wero telegraphed about Ibis state ot affairs, and Immediately there came rolling In great bundles of gifts for tho children of the two Maino towns. A great toy party -was held, and each child received at least three gifts, candy and ice cream to repletion, and the occasion was gay and festive with balloons and other decorations. "As the twig is bent, so the troa IB Inclined" might v.-ell be tho motto ot the Junior Red Cross. Since the days of the World War, when tha children of America were rallied under its banner so that they might also participate in sustaining tho morale of tho Army and Navy, millions havo reached their maturity, and are today found enlisted as members ot the adult organization. Their interest in their fellowman, inculcated In the school days when they were Junior Red Cross members has made of them substantial and helpful citizens today, when the nation is battling tho greatest economic depression In history.
