' ' Tbe report is based on an accumulation of evidence · and shows that prisoners have been employed constantly under shell fire an* that many have been killed by British guns; that they have been kicked and .beaten, denied clothing and adequate shelter; have often, been shot and deaths from starvation and overwork have been constant. .French'prison- era have been subject to the same treatment · . . .

Members of the Red Cross, who will here charge of the drive to lie made the week of May 20, hav been notified taai the organization can Uke no pert 1» the "War Cn*st",campaijn. and it S Sas been susgested thlit it be deferred for the present RED CROSS CAliS FOR MEN AND WOMEN TWTOFMNCE O»ly Bar is -ig»i»st IVrsftas Xining Relatives ii the S«Tlce taA Reason IE Ghvn. Additional information jest received from the national headquarters cm- phuiies the imperative nc-ceisity for large numbers of both men and. women being, sent to France without delay for general service, and asks that .every effort be made locally to induce a large registration for same. There is no age limit. So long as one is physically and mentally in condition to renoXir the service expected, age will not bar the applicant, provided other requirements' can be met. No girl or woman will be accepted for thts overseas service who now has a father, son, husband, or brother in the United States or Allies' service, either at home or abroad; this same rule applies to men with female relatives who seek to enter the Red Cross service. This ruling seems both strange and arbitrary, but is explained on the ground that the efficiency of Red Cross workers abroad is handicapped and lowered through fear and apprehension that their relatives are in danger, that they may be the next ones brought to'the hospitals for medical and surgical attention, which tend* to make them nervous and 'unable properly to attend to their exacting duties. This particular ruling will .prevent a number of CoanelisviUe girls trom going who have already registered and who are waiting for instructions to report. As soon as the forms^whlch are expected any day now, are received,' each individual who wishes to register, even though they have already signed the preliminary form prepared by Chairman J. Fred Kurtz, will fill out one of these permanent forms in detail, and will be asked to furnish jiata as to age, health, weight, financial condition, and other questions pertinent to this class of service. Dana as to financial condition is requested because there are three classes of Red Cross overseas service, viz., those who volunteer their services free and agree to p»y all of their 'own expenses while in the service,; including transporta- expenses; next, those who volun- their service free, but will have their transportation 'and living expeii- senses paid; third, those whose lack, of funds compel them to have all transportation, living and incidental expenses paid, uniforms 'furnished, and a small wage paid while in the service. This last class can. only enlist for a minimum period 'of -12 months. All applicants must first pass a physical and mental i^est by a local Red Cross doctor. i The Connellsville Chapter requests that all persons wishing to serve will at once register at the office of the chairman, 403 Title Trust building.
