Burle D. Bramhall Helps In
Red Cross Care of 900
FAMILIES RE - UNITED
Tremendous Task Now Near
ing Completion; Colony
The final stages of the tremendous
tisk undertaken by the American Red
Cross in caring for homeless Russian
children is described by Burle I>. Bram
hsll, former student in the University
and at present business manager of the
Petrograu Children's Colony Expedition,
ii a communication received by-Earl Kil
patrick, director of the Extension di
vision of the University. . ’ -
The I’etrograd Children’s colony is
composed of about 900 children from the
better class of Russian families who with
their tutors were sent into the Ural
mountains in 1916 to escape the disas
ters of wftr. Because of the wild iif^
they Jed tlmy became known as the “wild
children of Russia.”
When the American Red Cross made
its way into western Siberia they found
these children and as the Bolslieviki
were advancing in that, direction they de
cided to assume the’responsibility of re
turning the children to their parents. Mr.
Bramhall was in charge of the Red Cross
station in Vladivostok, a Sizerian town
on the east coast, where the children
were taken and colonized while waiting
for a ship to carry'them half- way around
the world to their hothes in Petrograd.
V7IMH U 110.1 IVTOII.
When the ship was finally chartered it
started with its precious cargo of chil
dren for America, with Mr. Bramliall as
business manager of the expedition;
that was months ago and it but recently
docked .-ft: llalila, Finland. From there
the children are being sent by the train
load into Russia, where those whose par
rats are still alive will be reunited with
their families,, according to .Mr. Bram
hall’s letter. w
He says in reference to their arrival
in Finland where several packer.; of mail
were waiting the children from their ail
bat forgotten parentl: "Allen, of the Red
Cross personnel', read tin letters to the
children. One' girl went into convul
sions when her name was called, others
began to cry, some ran out of the room,
other grabberd their friends and went
dancing, about the room. Many who did
not receive letters were very very sad.”
Mr. Bramliall refers in his letter to the
terrible dullness of the small place at
which they are now located as only two
families in the place speuk English,
fhere are no Americans nearer than Wi
horg, which he says, is 19 kilometers off.
Mr. Bramhall makes no reference as
to when he will return to the United
States, but it is very likely that the
liquidation of the I’etrograd Children's
colony will take some little time yet.

NEXT LEMON PUHCN
TO MR FEB. 10TR
“Formal Issue” Is Title of
2nd Edition; Need Cartoon.
The next issue of the “Lcmor Punch”
to he called the “Formal Number*' will
be off the press about February 10. i!
all goes well, according to the editor. Ali
material for the issue must be in not
later than January 2ft. to appear in this
number, and contributors are asked t<
submit material in typewritten form i!
possible to avoid recopy.
Little interest has been evidenced as
yet in the contributors contest, and ac
cording- to the editor, unless Interest b
manifested soon, the staff will ha\e tc
divide the prizes up among themselves.
“The Lemon Punch represented studer'
talent and unless the students realize
i that the success of the magazine depends
1 upon them,” the editor stated, “the next
issue will read like an almanac.” A few
cannot invent material for the entire
magazine. If the material lacks pep it b
because the students will not take enough
interest in their magazine to turn it into
a real publication. There is lots of tal
ent in the school and there is no reason
why it shouldn’t throw itself into the
Punch contribution boxes.”
Hereafter all material submitted by
contributors, not. published will be criti
cized and returned to the author so that
lie ijjay understand the exact type of ma
terial needed. Material submitted should
not. be illustrative of Oregon student
bory life or activities must be gen
eral college bumor.
