While It Is hoped that the great,

future will IK! wholly a work of
pom'o-t-thut wars havo ended for all
tlmo with tho laying down of arms
in tho conflict which recently has
convulsed tho world It Ib Important
to hear In mind that tho obligations
of the American Red Cross respect
ing tiio caro and comfort of tho
country's defenders Is not complet
ed. Tho paramount duty of tho Red
Cross organization. Is to maintain
tho service for fighting men at 100
per cent olllcloncy until there Is no
longer any call for It.
Figures show thnt demobilization
of tho military forces of tho gov
ernment has not decreased tho de
mands on the Rod. Cross in impor
tant branches of offort affecting tho
welfare of tho men In uniform. On
tho contrary, there, has boon grcat.or
volume of work in certain lines dur
ing tho last few months than there
wns boforo demobilization began.
Great increases are shown in tho
volume of personal ncrvlco rendered,
duo to tho growing knowledgo
among tho men regarding tho help
that Is tholrs for tho asking, as well
as tho mounting character of prob
lems that ficoni' to nrlso on tho per
sonal sldo of the equation as the
ranks aro thinned In tho camps and
tho ability to glvo n fuller sorvico
through tho oxporionco of tho previ
ous months and years.
Thoro still keeps up also tho origi
nal dlHtinctlvo work in the camps
and hospitals for tho vigorous and
tho wounded and tho convalescent.
All of it Is work that must continue
until tho lust man has been mus
tered out and tho last of tho hos
pltnls is closed.
Everybody who responds to tho
third Rod Cross Roll Call, November
2-11, theroforo, will have a part In
carrying to completion tho tasks
which woro assumed when tho Unlt

nobody ought to in Iks tho chance of
