LANE, Secretary of the Interior O UT of th $100,000,000 given last June by the American people to the Red Cross, nearly one-half ($45,000,000) has gone to help the refugees, the orphaned children, the repatriates and wounded oftlie French, Belgian, Italian, Seibian, Roumanian and other peoples. The Red Cross has spent more than $30,000, OOOin France alone in the establishment of canteens for the poilus, the reconsti action of devasted districts, the caie of homeless children, the housing of refugees', the sending of food, clothes and supplies to the sorely burdened civilian population. More than $2,000,000 has been sp°nt in fighting tubeicu- losis, one of the worst of war's by-products, §1,149,- 000 has been expended for the shelter of u ar orphans. $2,709,736 has been appropriated for the reconstruction of villages and general relief work in the dev- asted areas. In Italy a great work of relief was organized after the Austro German dnve of last fall, and the thousands of refugees that came pouring over the Po and the Piave were aided b a business like and far-reaching supply and canteen service, improvised out of the existing organization More than $3,000,000 \\ as thus spent for Italy. American funds will soon make the plain of Monastir fertile once more through the importation of seeds and agricultural implements In this section of Serbia more than fifty thousand refugees have been on the verge of starvation for nearly two vears It should be a source of daily pride to ever American that our own Red Cross is adding new glories to the American Name in the Mother Continent. Our full support is essential if its pres ent mightv work of succor and human bi otherhood is to be continued on an ever increasing scale. THE SUN THAT NEVER SETS Serves the Red Cross By T. J.
