organization the dome of the Capitol at "Washington, upon which ia super
imposed a large Red Cross, is the central figure of a new poster for the
Annual Red Cross Roll Call. The poster, which has been pronounced one

PLEASED THE "MONEY BAGS"
European Capitalists Listened With
Pleasure to Accounts of Rocke
feller's Stupendous Wealth.
During my stay In London I ac
cepted au Invitation to have luncheon
with Lord Rothbchlld at Ills ofUce, John
IIujs Uaunnond writes In Scrlbner's
It bad been my custom, extending over
a period of many yenrs, to drop in
Informally and have luncheon with
the ltothschllds once or twice during
each of my frequent visits to London.
On these occasions alwajs the most
Interesting topic of conversation was
my estimate of the wealth of Rocke
feller mid other ilch Americans. Lord
Rothschild lnvaiiubly iutioduied the
subject and torewumed, 1 wus ready
to give him the desired thrill, lie
would usually start with some "piker"
capitalist, whose wealth did not
amount to more than the paltry sum
of $100,000,000, nnd then worked up
by queries until he reached the Aineii
can Cioesus, John D. Rockefeller. It
would bo un unpatriotic American who
would belittle the wealth of a com
patriot ut u time like this, und ufter
having modestly .admitted, in reply to
Lord Rothschild's question, that Rocke
feller was certainly worth $500,000,
000, assuming un ulr of ultra conserva
tism, I would allow him to eiloit what
was to him a delectable fact that Rock
efeller wus worth at least $750,
000,000; and when the money bugs
around the table stured ut me with
an expression of pleased surprise,
but not of doubt, I would In subdued
tone convey to them the fact that
In Informed financial circles of Amer
ica the Rockefellers' wealth wus esti
mated at oer $1,000,000,0001 The In
ternationalism of the Rothschild fam
ily, and the utter lack of envy, la
evidenced in the unmistakable pleas
ure which characterized the reception
of this titbit of high finance.

Huiuuu aviation Is a long, long way

Liberal Eastern Potentate.
The heir to the Ottoman throne,
AbdiU McdJId, Is something new in
the way of eastern potentates. Ac
cording to European papers his life
m Constantinople Is n model of de
mocracy. The future Commander of the
Faithful, who Is fifty jcars old, In
tensely enjojs the liberty of which he
was deprived for thirty years by Abdul
Hamld. He Is said to divide his ac
tivities between music, painting, and
writing. Ills library Is stored with
Fiench books. Ills favorite writer Is
Anatole France, his favorite composer
Beethoven. Two Interesting signs of
regeneration of tho Ottoman empire
are the facts that Abdul Medjld can
be npprouchi'd without oriental cere
mony and thnt he has suppressed the
harem of tho palace.

THE STOCK MARKET SITUATION
Wollesloy Hills, Mass., Oct. 14,
1922. Readers should not bo sur
prised according to Roger W. Bab
son becauso of tho recent action of
tho stock market. When inter
viewed in Wellesley regarding the
matter, Mr. Babson today said the
seriousness of tho European situ
ation is greater than most people
"It is really surprising that tho
stock market has hold up so well
during tho past two weoks. Of
course tho break was duo to tho
gravity of tho Turkish situation
which was understood only by the
big bankers In Now York. Tho real
facts aro that Franco Is today in
quite a similar position ns that held
by Germany in 1914.
"Tho real seriousness it the dan
ger has somehow beon hidden. THo
change has come swiftly. A fow
"weoks ago Engand was in tho saddlo.
At conferences sho was tho dictator.
She did the talking and Franco did
tho worrying. Today tho situation
is just the reverse. England is now
in a holo. Franco deliberately put
"England alono of all European
nations has stood for law and ordor.
Sho alono has stood for tho payment
of debts, and tho fulfillment of ob
ligations. Germany nnd Austria ar
bankrupt. Chaos reigns in Russia.
Italy is on tho verge of bankruptcy.
Franco is compromising. Eng
land is tho only country who has
told us that she will pay her debts
"England's policy with Gormany
has boon in opposition to that of
Franco. England has wanted to
got for Franco as much out of Gor
many as possible without killing tho
gooso that laid the golden eggs.
England was Europo's big brother,
and upon her the financial world
"Today England Is facod with
fighting Europo becauso sho stands
practically alono. Tho now govern
ment of Greoco is not with her.
Germany, alono. In case of war, Is
her possible ally. Tho Gormany of
today is not on friendly terms with
tho Turkey of today. Should, how
ever, Germany go in with England,
thoro would have to bo an entirely
now interpretation placed on many
European relationships and tho
problems of those relationships.
Thero Is tbo matter of reparations,
for Instance. All international fin
ances would bo upset.
"Yes, England stands practically
alono. Italy will back Turkey.
Russia will back Turkey. And, of
course, France will back Turkey.
Ilenco it must bo kept clear that tho
roal Issue is not botwoen Great Brlt
ian and Turkey, but between Great
Brltlan and Franco. Franco has
been backing Turkey. England has
beon backing Greoco. Turkoy and
Onwco. howover. havo beon but
pawns on tho chessboard.
"Whon tho last war was on Rub
sla was promised Constantinople
Trillin wltbdrow. . Then It was de
cided to keep Constantinople free,
out of tho powor of either Franco or
England. England slowly got a bit
of tho upper hand. This hurt tho
prldo of Franco who patiently await
od her opportunity. Last montn
It camo. Then Frnnco playod her
cards. In a fow hours tho ontlro
European situation changed. Today
Franco hold tho trumps.
"It Is not merely a war on paper,
romombor. Turkoy is fortifying
horsolf by putting guns and troops
land, Is in a holo and this Is what
caused the stock market to broak
and foreign bonds to tumble Her
own peoplo aro against war. Thoro
is tho memory of tho recent blood
shed. Thoro is still tho warning
mark of great sorrow. An English
man, too cannot soo hlmsolt going
to Turkey to tight. Whon Gormany
thunderod In Europo right at Eng
land's door, tho English Tommy was
on fire to fight. But today it Is
different. Tho Englishman rcmom
bors sadly what hopponed at Galli
poll. Ho romembors tho fearful
cost of conquering a few Boors in
South Africa. Ho knows that thoro
aro ovor 200,000,000 Mohammedans
at Turkoy's back door.
"Even tho Englishman, who has
n't a son that Is nlrcady lost or a
son to loso, has taxes to pay. Eng
land, with her intontlon of paying
hor debts, is tho only European
country that really taxod hor peo
plo severely. Tho ordinary English
tradesman is up to his chin in tazos.
(England has tho hlghost tax rato
in tho word.) Ho is not eagor for
more, the wolght of which would
break him. This 1b tho proposition
with which England 1b faced. Sho
has either got to fight tho Turks at
a tremendous cost of men and mon-
oy, without tho full co-oporatlon of
hor own yeoplo, or olso sho has to
loso Indla.Egypt.PersIa and tho Holy
Land, Do you wonder tho stock
"What will happon? I do not
knows but -whatever happens, thoro
will bo no chock on business. Tho
farmer will bo helped by higher
prices for wheat. Manufacturing
and shipping will becomo moro ac
tivo. Tho cost of living will go up.
Money will bo firmer and scarcor.
Peoplo will sell their foreign secur
ities. The stock market; howover,
will not permanently suffer. Whon
tho financial history of 1922 is writ
ten, this will bo chronlclod only as a
'break In the bull markot.' More
over, tho writers will add: 'Con
sidering tho great seriousness of the
Turkish situation, it is most sur
prising that tho stock market has
behaved so well. Only tho fact that
business was not Inflated but wns
still 6 points below normal saved
tho situation. Had tho nation in
1922 been enjoying a period of roal
prosperity, thor would havo been
witnessed a real old-fashlonod pan
ic." RED CROSS WINNING
IN FIGHT FOR HEALTH
Better, Stronger Citizenry Now1
Emerging Out of Work in
The American Red Cross as an
evangelist of better health has looked

the nation's physical condition as
brought out during the World War,
and conscientiously applied its activi

Historically and practically, nursing Is

Health nurse In the 1,240 nursing serv
ices now operating throughout the
country Instructing their communities
in health essentials and disease pre
vention Is demonstrating the possibili
ties of human betterment and the great
benefits of enlightenment
During the last year 313 new public
health nursing services were establish
ed by Red Cross Chapters, and several
hundred services so convincingly prov
ed their effectiveness that they were
taken over by public authorities. In
order to promote this work $30,000 was
allotted to provldo women to prepare
themselves for public nursing. Tho
home visits made by the 1,2-10 nurses
aggregated nearly 1,500,000, visits to
schools numbered 140,000, and in six
months 1,250,000 school children were
Inspected by these nurses and where
defects were found advised examlnA-
tlon by physicians. In rural commu
nities this service has made a very
marked advance nnd has won thou
sands of converts to approved methods
of disease prevention.
