TUESDAY, JANUARY 12, 1943 EXPENDITURE OF $62,000,000 IN FOREIGN RELIEF Red Cross Announces $5,000,000 Spent in Relief of Prisoners Expenditure of $62,000,000 by the American Red Cross for foreign war relief, touching the lives of nearly 30,000,000 persons, was announced in a report received by Tom Connor, chairman, of the Cerro Gordo county Red Cross chapter. I n . addition a sum of §5,000,000 has been disbursed for relief to prisoners of war of the united nations. Greater Red Cross accomplishments have been realized so far in this war with a smaller expenditure of funds than during the first year of the last war, Mr. Connor said. Two achievements cited as outstanding were training of 5,500,000 persons in first aid, and the creation of the blood plasma project. In 1S41, the Red Cross collected 50,000 units of blood plasma while in 1942 donations went up to the 1,000,000 mark. Other realizations since Pearl Harbor, Mr. Connor said, were the training of 500,000 women in home nursing and the enrollment or completed training of 60,000 women as volunteer nurses's aides. He cited the outstanding production by volunteers of 350,000,000 surgical dressings besides millions of sewed and knitted garments and other articles; Cerro Gordo county men were among the 2,000,000 in the armec forces who were aided during the year by the Red Cross in solving personal problems, Mr. Connoi added. Under the new Red Cross program of providing recreation for task forces, 75 overseas recreation clubs have been established in many nations and the Red Cross plans additional clubs as more troops are sent abroad. Approximately 3,500,000 volun teers are giving a significant par of their time to Red Cross serv ices, and for every one member of the regular full-time paid Red Cross staff there are 350 volunteers, this report states. "Without our loyal volunteer we would be unable to carry 01 our program, locally, nationally or internationally with- the fund available," Mr. Connor s a i d "Their work has been an invalu able contribution to the war cf- lort. "Because the first Red Cros war fund, which was announce! the day after Pearl Harbor, wa oversubscribed by $20,900,000, n further appeal for funds has sine, been necessary," Mr. Connor ex plained, "but with the approval o President Roosevelt, the Rei Cross will conduct a second wa fund appeal next March."
