December «, 1018 RED CROSS ROIL CALL Christmas Eve a year ago 22,000,000 Americans hactaiiswr ed "Her and given to the allied world a pledge of faith more con vincing than gathering than gat hering armies and ships of war. Nearly ten millori* of school chil dren. also insisted on being coun ted It was a wondesl'nl showing for an organization which in 1916 numb-irod onlv 22,000 member J. It was not merd> an indorsement of the prinnphs of the lied Cross —humanity and mer.y: it was notice to tin* nations that Ameri ca entrance into the war was not merely an act ot' the govern ment, of the congress or of the President, but that the people of the United St ites ratified that act and would maintain it to the end. Nineteen-eighteen has been a wonderful year a year of sacri fice and of trial, to L»e sure, but a yfcar of heroic deeds and of un shaken faith. America ha i knowi the shock of battle and the joy of victory; she has known al*t the sorrow that is the pri?e of victory There are thousands ot American graveain Europe, but every one of them is a monument to mark the pathway to the final freedom of the world. Through all this time of tumult, of death, and ot glory the Red Cross has kept the faith. To ev erv war blighted country where it could make its way it has g ne as the messenger of the Ameri can people, healing the sick, feeding the hungry, clothing the' naked, and cheerinn the hope less. The end is not vet. The world's measure of suffering is greater than we can know undl time and victory can lift the en tain of war which hides it-' But in the great piven to the Red Cross the flrs' concern was the welfare qf the American sailor and soldier, t see that by every means that minds could devise or money pay for their ordeal should be light* ened and their way made smooth. It was a work of both loyalty and love. In lending all its aid to keeping th s boys at the front comfortable and fit, the Red Cross has delivered a double contribu tion from the women and chil dren at home toward the nation's task in the winning of the war. In keeping intact and strong the chain which bound him to his own home altars, !n maintaining unbroken the line of communica tion betweeu the roaring battle line and the doorstep vvher* hie children played, it has upheld th home ideas in American life against all the disintegrating forces of war. It has Kept the home fires burning steadily and peaceful The war is not over. There will be many a long day bef >re tlx boys come home. The Kwl Crose has a great work to do until! the guns are still It needs at this time the sanction of 100 percent membership, that it may deliver its message with the voic • of the whold natin, that to every American soldi ,r offering his life in his country's cause, wherever he may be, it shall stand as the ever-present embodiment of his home and his peple. # Theie is u personal force in ththu' can n• t be overestimated.

Out of a harvest which gave us only 20,000,000 bushels surplus we sctusjly shipped 141,000,000 bushels.

Of this number 4o had influenza during the epidemic. During the first week of O tober there weres2 of the children sick, and eight of these hi»d pneumonia. At this ooint the fresh air and sunshine treatment WHS intr duced upon the suggestion of the State Board of Health. AfteFbegmninK this treatment only two addition al cases of pneumonia developed. Invariably the patients showed marked improvement from the beginning of the treatment and progressed rapidly to complete recovery. This method of treating intlu en/.a, and pneufhohia was recom menced by the State Hoard of Health at the height of the epi demic in the State, when num erous committees wer« pleading for additional physicians and nurses to care for the large num bers of the sick. The method had been tested in Masachusetts with excellent results, and upon the tuggestion of the State healtl authorities it was tried in a num b( r of ca K es in North Carolina. The results at the Thomasiille Orphanage are given because in ihat case there was a large hum her of patients ill whien the treatment was inaugurated; there were pneumonia complications; the patients AT re under excell cut control and careful observa tions could be made constantly In other words, it w«s a case of testing the measure on a large scale. Influenza, and the resultant pneumonia, is continuing in many sections of the State The epidemic will in all probability continue through 'he winter. For the treatment of boUj» influ enza and pneumonia the State Hoard of Health - urges this method of treat nent. The treatment is just what is implied in the name. Move the patients out of doors where, they •will be directly exp"ned to the sunlight and to the open air At this season greater care must" tie' taken to see that patients are warmly find and covered, and of course they must be protect) d 'rorti the inclemencies of the weather, Such protection is af forded by the porches of most homes See that nourishing food is frequent intervals, and that the bowels are kept freely moving.
