Clothed children who lived in rags. One of the measures imposed by the Germans on the civil population of Roumania was an order compelling them to turn over practically all the cloth in the country that was being held for the manufacturing of garments. As a result a large percentage of the population was left in rags when the war finally ended. Children suffered especially in this respect. The group of youngsters shown in this picture are an example of the condition to which the country has been reduced. A large part of the American Red Cross mission's work in Roumania has been to clothe children such as these. Distribution stations have been established in all parts of the country, and many trainloads of supplies have been given out to the needy people

Why they have Typhus in Roumania. Typhus is epidemic in Roumania. It is a disease carried by body lice. Where people are cleanly in their habits of life typhus is an impossibility. But in Roumania, cleanliness is virtually impossible. The American Red Cross Commissioner to Roumania, iin his official report, tells why cleanliness is impossible in hundreds of Roumanian villages. Describing one section which is a typical section by the way he says, "they have very little soap, no bedding, no clean clothing for the Typhus sufferers and no food." Hospital facilities are hopelessly inadequate. About all that hospital treatment amount to in such a community is isolating the typhus and small pox victims from the remainder of the community

Gourgeous holiday costumes of Roumanian Peasantry. Beautiful hand embroidered over dresses, and filmy hand made lace scarfs, were common enough in Roumania among the peasant women, before the German Bulgar Turk occupation during the war. Now these gorgeous costumes are only seen in remote villages where the Hun or Turk looters either stopped for a short time only, or did not visit at all. Garments of this character are heirlooms handed down from mother to daughter. And it is difficult to calculate their value. Today there is a serious shortage of woolen and cotton garments in Roumania, and even their ordinary peasant costumes, in which plain white wool or cotton are largely used are really luxuries. It was to relieve this situation that the American Red Cross brought tons of substantial wearing apparel bath robes and hospital garments mainly from the big stores that had been originally sent to the warehouses of France for use of the American Army and distributed this stuff to the sufferers in Roumania. Women of the country were employed to make the garments into warm dresses for needy Roumanian boys and girls and for the babies

With the American Red Cross in Roumania. Canteens like the one shown in this photo, were established in a dozen or more of the most destitute villages of Roumania last winter by the American Red Cross, when the morale of the country was at its lowest point on account of the wide spread misery that had been caused by the German occupation, when under orders of Field Marshall Vin Mackensen, the German troops requisitioned all the grain that could be found in the country and also took away tons of household supplies. When the Germans left and when the Bulgars and Turks-who were even more avaricious than the Germans in the matter of looting, took their departure, Roumania was left helpless. Without the American aid that was freely given, the Country could not have found strength or inclination to start on the work of reconstruction

Water buffalos of Roumania. When you get to Roumania you are into the Orient, with its color and its Eastern atmosphere. In Roumania, for example, you first run across the water buffalo of the east. This is a land of strange contrasts. The water buffalo may be seen in dragging a plow. While in the adjoining farmland some enterprising chap is trying out a baby tractor. In the streets of Bucharest, great white oxen with sweeping horns drag rude peasant wagons along utterly indifferent to the honking of automobiles that may be either American, German, French, or Italian, or the well known flivver of the U.S. which has become international. In many sections of Roumania the transportation crisis has become so acute that yokes of oxen are extremely valuable in hauling needed supplies. It was the transportation tie-up, caused by depreciation of railroad equipment, that added to the country's misery and made American Red Cross relief supplies, brought in with whatever means of transportation offered itself, very welcome

Fishing in a Famine District of Roumania. "All one Sunday morning these women using improvised dip nets fished in a little Roumanian brook, and caught about 4 tiny fish about the size of sardines" declared the American Red Cross man who took this photo. There is a food shortage in Roumania, and whatever can be added to the family bill of fare, even though it happens to be a small fish or so, is very welcome. This is an old Roumanian sport as it happens. But only in times of severe food shortage, such as the present, do so many women endeavor to catch fish in one small section of a stream. After this fishing party had been working for about an hour, the brook was a mud puddle. The Red Cross man was as surprised as the Roumanians, whenever a fish was caught. Throught the American Red Cross large quantities of badly needed drugs and supplies of food have been distributed in many Roumanian famine and disease centers. The Americans are very popualar in Roumania now. It was from the U.S. that aid came in the hour of greatest need after the Germans had left Roumania a famine stricken and diseased area in the near east. Bulgar, Turk and German took part in the despiolation of this country

Much of the effort made by relief workers to take the population of Roumania out of the shadow of epidemics and starvation has necessarily been devoted to the children of the country. Everywhere they go in Roumania representatives of the American Red Cross have been impressed with the sad plight of the children. Schools were closed for months and in many districts because the children were too weak from lack of food to attend classes. A Red Cross photographer snapped a picture of this little girl, who had been left by her mother to sleep on the hard sidewalk while she endeavored to find food. Special hospitals have been established at many points to take care of the children

Peasants of Roumania war costumes resembling ancient Roman garb. Throughout Roumania the peasant men wear a costume that is a relic of the old Roman days. During the Roman occupation of this section of Europe, when the country was known as Dacia, the people of the region gained their first knowledge of Latin and also picked up a number of Roman customs. The skirt-like garb of the Roumanian peasant men today is a relic of the ancient Roman tunic. The trousers they wear are made of heavy white unbleached wool. In a long days journey through Roumania, you will probably never see one of these costumes that is not spotless white. In the winter time a heavily padded vest, usually beautifully embroidered, is worn in preference to the European style coat. It is in such populations as these thrifty Roumanian villagers that the American Red Cross, with its commission to Roumania, has made many new friends during the past winter by distibuting drugs and clothing to the needy

The Reapers in Roumania. Here's the way they garner the grain in Roumania. Small sickles are used, and it takes twenty men and women to do the work one man accomplishes in the American grain belt using modern machinery.

Roumania's Queen mothers thousands. To the thousands of children in Roumania made orphans by war Queen Marie (in the centre of this group) is a befriending angel. She makes it her personal responsibility to visit all the orphanages of Belgrade every week and exerts herself in every way that their needs may be supplied. When the American Red Cross entered Roumania just after the Armistic sic both the Queen and King Ferdinand lent their full cooperation in dealing with every problem that arose in relief distribution.

Roumania, Land of Bare Feet. All the clothes that this Roumanian war widow and her four children own, they have on their backs. All are barefoot as shoes are so scarce that few people wear them. These four children were pathetic "starvation" patients in one of the American Red Cross hospitals in Bucharest, and although they are now on the road to recovery they still show the after effects of mal-nutrition. All of them look aged beyond their years and their mentality is entirely retarded and torpid.

They have added a little embroidery to the hem for the sake of variety. This adds to the "military" effect, the peasant guards declare
