Mr. Reis uiblished the story in the Out- ook Magazine. One of the readers was Emily Bissell, a Red Cross worker, in Wilmington, Delaware. She too lad an idea. She wanted to build a tuberculosis pavilion for some sick children in Delaware. She drew a very simple design —just a holly wreath and the words "Merry Christmas," both in red, in a box about the size of a postage stamp. The little stamps were sold for one cent apiece. 300,000 were sold that very first yeai and the tuberculosis pavilion was built. The next yew, 1908, the Red Cross took up the seal sale anc seals were sold all over the country. Each year the design was changed, but the red cros. always appeared somewhere or the seal. Then in 1910 the seal sale was taken over by Ithe Nation Tuberculosis Association, bu ,he Red Cross continued to loa ;he use of its emblem, receiving part of the proceeds. In 1919 ;he Red Cross withdrew and from then on the double barred cross, which had been adopted as the emblem of the international tuberculosis movement, appeared on each year's seal as a trade mark. The Christmas seals, are no longer called •Red Cross Seals" taut are now known as "tuberculosis Christmas Seals". History of the Double Barred Cross The history of the double arred cross, which is now the niblem of uberculosis the world-wide movement, goes way back to about three hun- red years after the time of Christ. In those days Palestine was a part of what was called he Eastern Roman empire. The heads of the Christian hurch at Jerusalem and Con- tantinople, who were known as patriarchs, adopted as their emblem a cross with two hor- zontal bars. Later all this region passed nto the hands of the Moham- medans. In the eleventh cen- ,ury the Christian nations such as France and England organized expeditions known as "The Crusades" to recover the holy land from the Mohammedans. One of the Crusades was led by Godfrey, Duke of Lorraine. When he fought his way thru to Jerusalem he saw the double barred cross. He liked it and adopted it as his emblem.

During the World War one of he divisions of the American Army which was quartered in hat part of France, took the .orraine cross as its insignia. In 1906 the National Tuberculosis Association adopted the double barred cross as the symbol of the campaign against tuberculosis. In 1913, finding that some people drew the cross one way and some another, the National Association set up certain rules so that all tuberculosis crosses would be exactly alike.
