RED CROSS AIDS

Greatest Little Mother Ex-
tends Helping Hand to
Sufferers in Over 1500
Washington Nov. 10. .More thnn
13000 American communities received
aid during the year ending lust
June from the Red Cross in the adop-
tion of precautionary methods ugainst
disease und disaster or In mitigating
suffering caused by either.
The activities of the' Bed Crosa
in this endeavor have been summar-
ized in the second of a series of state-
ments issued from Reil Cross head-
quarters here outlining the roritents
of the forthcoming annual report and
showing unolhcr phase of Bed Cross
expenditures from funds given by lis
ten million adult and fourteen million
junior members throughout tho coun-
try. During he year the lied Cross
organized its department of health
service; extended Its nursing service
to meet a growing demand for public
health nursing taught Hs first nid
to injured courses to thousands; and
took the lead ill the formation of the
world-wide Bed Cross societies with
headquarters in Geneva.
The department of health service
organized and nt work during the
last seven months of the year was
operating 12S health centers nt the
end of the year. From these radiated
many activities designed to improve
the health of a community and to
prevent the spread of disease while
IS.") Red Cross chapters nlso engaged
actively In disease preventive work.
The health department also had 312
employes serving nt G2 public health
hospitals where 30.422 patients re-
ceived some form of aid from tho
Red Cross. Fifteen hundred new
members of whom .103 were women
were added during the year to the
life-saving service u branch of the
first aiil to Injured department in
which a complete woman's corps also
has been organized.
For the nursing service the year
Was one of transition from military
to civil activities. During the war
20000 graduated nurses were assign1
ed to war service which aided the
return to civil life of several hundred.
Sick nurses were cared for In a con-
valescent home built during the
year at a cost of $10000.
Enrollment In the nursing service
increased from 3i.42ti to 3?0.'( during
the year and In an effort to Increase
;he number of qualified public health
nurses the national Red Cross and
its individual chapters established ap-
proximately 00U scholarships ut insti-
tutions over the country. Class in-
struction in ' homo hygiene and care
of the sick alio Increased three-fold
during the year the attendance rec-
ord bring placed at !i:ili!i:i. Two
thousand nurses acting as instruct-
ors had charge of this work. The
total expenses of the nursing serv-
ice were $l21!hi"i a reduction of
$4S?71 over the previous year.
Among the achievements of the
nursing department was the adoption
by "j states of a uniform method of
work In connection with the Red
Cross by which n bureau of public
health nursing was Instituted under
the direction of a state Health offi-
cer. The work of the American Hucicty
In the world-wide organization was
described hy the statement as "puiv-
Iv educational" serving to "blaze
the trail for the league." Methods
already worked out by the American

An Unusual Wealth Produced Here
In view of the fact that cotton haa not made quite so
trood a crop this year a usual on account of the pests and
the price is just a little lower that the farmers expected the
opinion might prevail that the South will not be prosperous
! for the next year.
j Such a conclusion is not justified as far as this immedi-
I ate section of Oklahoma is concerned. '
; Here is a partial conservative statement of the wealth
j produced in Carter county alone:
Healdton oil field produces dailv 28000 barrels of oil
: Hewitt oil field produces dailv 32000 barrels of oil
Fox oil field produces daily 500 barrcb of oil worth
Fox produces also 200000000 cubic feet of gas a day
land according to tho state law only one-fourth of this amount
lean be taken from the wells. The value of this" gas is each
Oil City produces daily 200 barrels of oil worth $500.
The Graham field produces 100. barrels of oil daily
The Graham field also produces 100000.000 cubic feet
of gas each day and the portion that can be sold brings
The products of the cusinhead gasoline plants and the
oil refineries in this county sell each day for $125000.
This means that Carter county receives each year from
oil and gas and their products $118205250.
Carter county will produce this year cotton that will selT
for $1)00000. The seed from this cotton will sell for
These combined make a' total of $119215250.
These figures do not include the value of the grain crop
the corn crop the potatoes and the cattle horses hogs and
The actual cash deposits in the. banks of this city amount
to approximately $1000 for every man woman and child in
Ihe city according to the federal census.
The South has made a wonderful progress within the
last quarter of a century with 8-cent cotton and without oil
and gas and it is doing now in one year as much as it for
merly-was able to accomplish in ten years.
Business for the next twelve months is based upoo a
remarkably solid foundation of wealth.

the use of political and other Influ-
ence in the negotiations of contracts

shipping board's activities. They de-
clared that Impropely drawn contracts
hud cost the government u large sum
that some departments bod fulled -to

The report charged that payroll
had bet ii padded by some of the firma
which repaired government-owned ves-

loss to the government as a result
of wholesale thefts of supplies und

The investigators also reported t

which furnished supplies to the ships
at prices ranging as high as .' per
