Reasons For the Third

will Indicate their bullet in the Ideals
of tho American Hed Cross and their
support of Its work by enrolling n
annual members nt . the nominal
membership feo of Ono Dollar.
The outstanding reasons why
every patriotic nnd public-spirited
American citizen will wish to join
tho American Hed Cross during the
may be summarized briefly as fol
lows: 1. The Wnr Task of the Hed
Cross Is not yet Fully Performed.
To men still In service, nnd to
their families nt home, to discharged
soldiers' not yet fully adjusted to the
routine of civilian life, to boys suf
fering or convalescing In Military or
Naval Hospitals, the American peo
ple still give cheer, comfort mid ser
vice through their Hed Cross.
In certain portions of the Old
World the American Hed Cross still
feeds and clothes the undernourished

wnrra water, and thoroughly drying
with a cloth or towel. The stick of
caustic should be wrapped In a piece
of paper to protect the hands and fin
gers, leaving one end of the stick un
covered. Moisten the uncovered end slightly
nnd rub It On the horn buttons or little
points which may be felt on the cnlfV
head, first on one nnd then the other,
nlternately, two or three times on
each, allowing the caustic to dry after
each application. He very careful to
npply the caustic to the horn button
only. If It Is brought In contact with
the surrounding skin It will cause pain.
He very enreful also not to have too
much moisture on the stick of caustic,
ns It will remove the skin If nllowed
to run down over the face. After treat
ment, keep the calf protected from
rain, as water on the head after the
application of caustic will muse it to
run down over tho face. This must
be carefully avoided.
Klther caustic odn or caustic pot
ash alone, without the admixture of
other substances, answers the purpose
satisfactorily. Some years ago, how
ever, certain preparations or "dehorn
ing compounds," composed largely of
one or the other of these cnustlcs,
were generally used, nnd, ns Inquiries
nre still occasionally received concern
ing such preparations, the following
formula is given: Combine In nn
emulsion 50 per cent of caustic soda,

25 per cent of kerosone. and 2.1 per
cent of water. The caustic soda is
dissolved In tho wntT and lusted to
the boiling point, thn removed from
peoplo of these disease-ridden, famine-stricken,
war-ravaged countries
to organize their own resources.
Since the signing of tho Armistice,
this work has steadily declined, but
it is uot by any means fully completed.
2. The Red Cross Is the Disaster
Relief Agent of tho American Peo
ple. t
The speed and efficiency with
which the Red Cross met the emer
gency needs In Corpus Chrlstl and
vicinity gave n striking illustration
of the value of nationwide Red Cross
organization, nnd furnished convinc
ing proof that we cannot afford to go
bnck to the pre-war basis when all
Hed Cross dlsastor rellof was ad
ministered from Washington, I). C.
In case of disaster, whothcr it be n
small one due to forest fire in the
Northwest or great Mississippi Valley
flood, tho first effective rollof will
hereafter come from nearby commu
nities, working through their Red
Cross Chnpters which are part of the '
disaster relief machinery established I
by Congress In 190C.
8. In caso of Epidemic Local Red
Cross Organization Ik Indispensable.
During the epidemic of Influenza
last whiter many thousands of Uvea
ware saved by Rod Cross set ton and
fo-operatlon, which was possible only
because the Red Cross was fully
organized for local service and na
tional co-opera Uou iu every commu
nity In the I'nlted States. Against
a possible recurrence
,'hl winter and against o danger of
, epidemic in the future, a continued
universal membership In the Red
' CroMs is essential.
I 4. Red Cross Peace Program
Merits Universal Support, Sympathy
and Co-operation.
Owing to the changed social and
economic condition following the war
and the necessary adjustments that
must be mads by the nation as a
whole to meet these conditions, the
Red Cross Is confronted with new
; responsibilities which must be dis
charged with tho same onebfy and of
still possible for an epidemic like In
fluenza to take u toll within a com
pass of few weeks five times
greater than tho losses of our na
tion in n year and n half of war;
hundreds of thousands of people In
tho prime of life die In tho (Milted
States uvery year from wholly pre
ventable diseases. This Is nothing
short of a disaster which Is n continu
ing ono nnd will bu permanent unless
the people co-operuto with one ano
ther to uso the knowledge and
wealth already in existence to bring
the nation Into it better day. Many
agencies are already nt work on
these problems. The Red Cross will
not supplant or competo with the ef
forts of nny established and effective
agency, public or private. Hut the
Hed Cross, through its millions of
mambers comprising evury element
in every community, many of them,
thoinjolves. tho victims of the foes
thnt cut short human life nnd rob It
of Its sweetness, can servo nation
and community us can no other
agency In supplementing, reinforcing
and supporting woll directed efforts
for the conservation of tho most pre
cious things In the world, human life
and happiness.
r. America has set tho Pace In n
World Hed Cross Movomnnt.
The League of Hed Cross Societies
of nil nations has been formed,
through the inspiration of tho Hed
Cross achievement of tho United
States. This League has no executive
power whatever over the Hed Cross
of nny nation, but will extend Into
every nation the benef ts of u na
tional, voluntary Hed Cross Society
on the American model, to deal with
problems of health nnd child welfare
and to cope with the relief problems
that nre so pressing over so great n
part of tho earth's surface. Through
these organizations ninny nations'
will meet their own problems which
would otherwise be appealing to
America for rellof nnd assistance.
The I'nlted Stutos, whose peoplo have
shown the world how thus to rise
out of dlspalr Into hope, must keep
the Red Cross banner floating high.
Tho success or failure of this great
world movement of practical Ideal
ism will depend largely upon tho
manner In which the American poo
