Such is the report of American Red Cross workers in the Balkan field as they have seen thousands starving and hundreds dying in the streets. This picture gives a good idea of conditions. Here are two families, just returned to Greece from internment in Bulgarian prison camps. The only aid they received as they made their way home was from the American Red Cross, which fed them all and clothed only those that couldn't make their rags hold together longer. Although the Red Cross sent thousands of tons of supplies to the Balkans, it could only relieve a fraction of the great misery that existed

Kitchens roll to Russia. The old army "rolling kitchen" has rolled all the way to Russia. The old slum wagon was not the most popular eating house in the army butis is one of the most popular in the overcrowded ports of the Black Sea. Thousands of refugees from inland towns gathered at the ports without shelters, food, or even funds. Hundreds were on the verge of starvation and the town's supplies were exhausted. The American Red Cross with the aid of six old army kitchens which had been sent out from France opened suoupkitchens where thousands were fed daily. This picture shows Lieutenant L.M. Foster of Chicago, dishing out soup to the refugees in Novorossisk three days before the fall of the city and the evacuation of the Red Cross mission

Class room in the Sahara. Going to school in the Sahara Desert is a casual routine. The school room may be any perfunctory spot that looks comfortable and "smoking is allowed." A class in Mohammedanism is conning the Koran from wooden "slates" whereon all the wisdom considered necessary in this land is carved. When they have learned it all by heart backwards and forwards their education is considered complete. Thousands of children in this part of the world are toothless from lack of dentistry and other thousands are blind from lack of hygiene and sanitary measures. Bathing their faces in polluted streams causes part of the scourge of blindness, and the hot sun and sand also cause part of it. Some of the most worthy students are to be selected from among these oriental children and "coached" for scholarships in foreign schools and colleges by the Junior Red Cross of America. It is believed that this training will help them to carry back modern ideas to their people of an importance over the wisdom of the Koran for preventing the spread of disease
