Friendship of America O ne of the
Greatest N eeds of Russia
By DR. FRANK BIIJJNGS

R ui* la’s greatcMt need today ih aiticcre friendship from the outside,
in her »triij^lo for n constitutional and democratic form of government,
America can he of iminetuie service, not so much in the way of gifts of
money, but by letting the people of Russia know what is going on in this
country, and what the United Ktutes is doing in the war. Russia is abso
lutely without any American news that is worth while. Most of what
they hear aliout the United States in the war comes to them through pro-
(Jerman propaganda, and is to the effect that this country is fighting for
pecuniary gain; thut the United States is a vassal of England, and that
England wants to rule the world. They havo not heard a word of Presi
dent Wilson’s reasons why wo are in this war.
However, America is looked to by tho Russians as their bent friend
'I ho further cementing of friendly relations will aid Russia in its war
operations, and tho Red Cross, through its relief work already done and
that which will l*e carried on, will do much to bring this about. The Red
Cross commission to Russia has established a well-organized office, with
an efficient personnel in Petrograd and on the road as transportation
Russia turns to America as her best friend, and if America will
recognize the great power of the people of Russia, their inherent good
ness of character and stability, their desire for order, their desire for
democracy, by tho help which America can give she will cement that
friendship for all time.
With tho American Red Cross firmly established in Russia, it is to
he the policy to furnish such material as may be needed in the care of
tho sick and injured soldiers, and some degree for the civilian popu
lation. The members of the cabinet of the Russian provisional govern
ment, tho sanitary department of tho army, the Russian Red Cross, all
the relief organizations, and tho “ All Union of Zenstvos” have expressed
their gratitude for the aid which the American Red Cross has already
afforded. A continuation of this good work by the American Red Cross
will bo one of the most potent factors in cementing that friendship which
is so much desired.
