We here at home who associate the great Red Cross movement with band ages and white gowned nurses must ¡ose this old Illusion In the light o f a thousand other works for humanity. In this case we see the Red Cross first as diplomats convincing the civil authorities o f Parts as to their ability to remedy the situation, then as architects remodeling buildings, chang ing building plans, hiring labor gath ered by themselves from the ex-sol dlery and the older man, all the while working under every Imaginable hand icap, while Father Tim e cried, "(Jet tl done, get It done.’’ So out o f the garrets came these de spairing people to find new hope it clean homes, to get new cheer out ot sheer bodily comfort and fresh cour age to Hgain take up the great trust that France has kept so well— “ to car ry on.” It Is not strange that out French brothers believe In your owe Red Cross Just a little more than yoi do. But should this be?
