Oregon Teacher Tells of the
110,000 Children in American
Orphanages "Over There"

and trained for farming and the In

"They are plodding on as best they

ts !rg all their hopes for the future
o the Armenian and Syrian races up
on 110,000 children In the American
orphanages who are receiving careful
American training. Outside the orph
anages there is practically no school
ing or training to be had. Every ef
fort mutt he directed towards the dif
ficult objective of mere physical sur
vival. Many 12 year old children can
neither r?ad nor write. This is be
cause war has swept that country ever
alnce 1914. These boya and girls are
from well-educated, families, and real
izing how handicapped they are, they
come to the orphanages and offer to
give up part of their food if they can
be given schooling. From the desti
tute familiee enme mothers In rags
and tatters, thin and hollow-eyed from
hunger, offering to make any eaertflee
It we will only establish schools for
their children. In all the orph
anages the children are being taught
to read, write and fisure In their own
language'. The older and brighter chil
dren receive Instruction in geography,
history and English. Because bread la
needed so much more than education,
we cannot afford a sufficient number
of teachers to teach personally all the
children, so pur few teachers give their
extra time to the bright pupils, who
are able, in a short time, to sr- as
teachers- for the others. These chil
dren are marvelouely industrious.
Practically all the work of my orph
anage was carried on by the children,
who did all the cleaning, sewing, conk
ing and laundry work, also helping in
the hospital work and clinical treat-,
ments. They realise that every penny of I
American money must go for their sup
port and to help other children keep
alive, so the boys of our orphanage,
when they wanted a swimming pool,
dug the hole themselves and then went
without supper twice a week for many
weeks In order to buy the cement and
the labor of the workmen to finish It.
"When the little refugee children
come into our orphanages they are
always In a most pitiable condition
dirty, covered with vermin, clad only
In filthy rags, and many of them af
flicted with scabies, trachoma and oth
er diseases resulting from starvation,
exposure and lack of care. The first
task is to clean the child thoroughly,
shave Its head, and treat the eyes and
cables sores. Next comes a system
of careful feeding, lest the food prove
fatal to the famished and emaciated
little bodies. In about two weeks the
little waifs are able to run about, but
It takes a year or more to make them
over Into normal, wholesome children.
Their Joy Ind happiness in the para
dise of an American orphanage is, the
thing that makes It possible for an
American worker to endure the sights
that must be seen on the outside of the
orphanage walls every day. But happy
aa they are, these little ones never
seem to forget the awful things they
have been through. We had ona little
boy named John, four years old, who
for weeks after being admitted, would
steal the ahoee of the other boys, their
books,- food from the kitchen, every
thing. Thtt was because the only wtv
he had of keeping alive all his life,
had been by stealing. Another boy of
eli year would sit by the door, for
days after he came, with hit hands out
begging for food, despite the fact that
ha was receiving threa meals a day.
It hard to make him understand
that he still did not have to beg for
food. A four-year-old boy who bad
pent the previous winter begging In
a ruined village and sleeping at night
among the sheep, had a perfect horror
ef being tent away from the orphan
age. One day he recognized two women
rlsitort who came from the ruined vil
lage where ha had begged wheit scarce
ly more than a baby, and he ran to
me sobbing and In terror, pleading
with me not to let them take him away.

Wails of Starving Children As
sail the Ears of Relief
Workers at Erivan.
The tragic progression of famine
condition In Armenia Is strikingly
shown in the personal reports brought
back by State Director J. J. Hand
taker of the Near Kaet Relief when he
visited that section lent August, and
In the letters that have been received
at Intervals since.
I "When I was there in the late sum
mer," said Mr. Handsaker, "The con
I ditions were truly appalling,- despite
the fact that the orphanages were fill
ed to their utmost capacity and every
thing possible was being done. I my
self selected a little naked girl with
nineteen others from among hundreds
I of starving children to fill the only
, possible vacancies in the orphansgs at
Erivan at that time. Hrwevsr, the
weather was warm, and the refugees
could manage in some way to keep
alive. Reports from Erivan (n late
September told of the coming of the
cold weather, and how the reserves
were drawn upon for the opening of
additional soup-kitchens. Starving
men women and children from all see
tions were flocking desperately tc the
Near East Relief station! In the hope
of getting work, food and clothing.
Two months later, tinder date of Nov.
29, we have news of the frightful situ
ation that followed. This news came
to Dr. Either Lovejoy, of Portland,
Oregon, who is national chairman of
the American Women's Hospitals,
from Dr. Mabel Elliott, In charge of
the American Women's Hospitals in
the Near East section. This organ
ization la co-operating with the Near
East Relief, and is handling the med
ical work of the latter at Erivan. Be
low Is an excerpt from Dr. Mabel
Elliott's letter to Dr. Lovejoy:
"I cannot begin to tell you, doctor,
of the mieery here In spite of the dhor
moui amount of work being done.
Since I have been here S52 is the low
est number of cases we have had in
our hospital! at any ona time, and
yet they are dying on all corners of
the city. Last Sunday ws went out
on horseback to lee how thing were
beyond the town; we pawed a dead
horse by the side of the road, and
three wretched human beings were
sitting beside it, .taking the flesh oft
with their hends. It was a most re
pulsive sight.
"All day long you can hear the
groans and walls of little children out-
side our building In hopes we can and
will pick them up, If the sun shtns
for a little while they quiet down, and
then when It rains they begin again.
One day the rain turned into snow
and it was awful to listen to them.
The note of terror that came into the
general wail was distinctly perceptible,
although my rooi was upstairs and
the window was closed. They well
know what a single night out in the
snow would mean to them. We are
picking them up as fast as possible.
"You can see by my report how
many more patients we have than beds,
and the same holds good In the orph
anages. There Is no use crowding the.n
in so that they will all die."

brought to our orphanage.
"The personal history of each llttif
orphan It a tragedy In Itself and no
one but those In close touch with these
little ones can know their deep graft
tude and reverence for anything Amer
lean. This gratitude and reverence it
universal throughout all that land of
lorrow, where the helping hand of
America, through the Near East Re
lief, ha saved hundreds of thousand!
from death by starvation and today
offers the only hope for the survival
and rehabilitation of these tragically
atrleken races."
