Three Thousand Mile Dash Across Russia to
Succor Roumania—Heroic Work Required.
Poor little Roumania, once so happy
and so beautiful I Robbed of its rich
lands by German hordes, its people
driven back upon themselves, the once
picturesque city of J assy Is now
crowded beyond its limits with the
country's destitute and starving.
Nothing but the most heroic efforts
of the American Red Cross has kept
Roumania from actually disappearing
from among the nations of the earth.
When all those who could leave the
country had tied Henry W. Ander-
son, American Red Cross commis-
sioner to that outraged country, stuck
to Ills post. Diseased, starving and
ragged people were all about him. The
cause seemed hopeless. Even Red
Cross money could buy nothing in
Roumania, for the country was strip-
So Anderson appealed to our Red |
Cross In Russia. There were sup-
plies there, hut how could they he;
carried the 3,000 miles that separated
Petrograd from J assy. Russia was
struggling against internal disorder,
which in the Ukrainian territory was
civil war. Even with the authority
and protection of the Bolshevik gov-
ernment the case seemed hopeless.
Yet help came—a whole train load
under the charge of Lieutenant Ma-
gunson of the American Red Cross in
Russia. And Anderson sent this ca-
"We are today distributing" food and
clothing to more than 10,(MM) people
and increasing numbers every week.
Kxpectlng shipment of four more cars
of food from Odessa this week. By
extraordinary effort we believe we can
continue purchase of sufficient supplies
to carry«on work."
And so our Red Cross Is showing nil
the world that not only are our men
ready to fight for the right, but are
ready to help nil those others who

When the Austrian* last October
routed the Italian Army by trickery
and drove before them half a million
refugees, the part which the American
Red Cross played in this stupendous
tragedy will go down in the history of
Italy and the world as one of the most
magnificent dashes of relief work that
lias ever come to light.
