Nearly ten millons ot school chil dren. also insisted on being coun ted Ic was a wondeslul showing for an org* nization which in 1916 numbered on I v 22,000 member 4. It was not mer> l> a" indorsement of the principhs of the lied Cross -humanity and m«*r.>: it was notice to thu nations that Ameri ca',* entrance into the ,var was not merely an act of the govern ment, of the congr?3» 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 tr.al, to L>e sure, but a year of heroic deeds and of un shaken faith. America has knowi the shock of battle and the joy of victory; she has known aUe the sorrow that is the price of victory. There are thousands ot American graves in Europe, but every one of them is a monument to mark the pathway to the final freedom of the world. Through all thn time of tumult, of death, and of 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 th« naked, and cheeriiiK the hope less. The end is not vet. The world's measure of suffering itt greater than we can know until lime and victory can lift the cir tair. of war which hides it. But in ths great cgnurii>aiuii sriv-en 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 botii lojalty and love. In lending all its aid to keeping th i boys at the front [Comfortable and fit, the Red 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 where hie children pla>ed, it has upheld th home ideas in American life against all the disintegrating forces of war. It lias Kept the home fires burning stea liiy and peaceful. ~ The war is not over. There will be many a long day bef >re the boys come home. The Red Cross has a great work to do until I the guns are still. It needs at this time the sanction of I'M) peregnt membership, that it may deliver ita message with the voia,: of the who'd 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.

Since the adrent of th« lateat wbaat crop the only limitation upoii Ameri can export® to Europe has been the Shortage of shipping. Between July 1 unJ October 10 we shipped 63,880,50* bushels.

The reault of lacreaaed production and eonaerraUoa efforts In the Ualted States has been that with the ceasu- Uoo of hoaulltlaa we are able to re turn to a normal wheat diet. Supplien that ha TO accumulated in Auatralla, Argentine and Other hitherto Inacces elble markets maybe tapped by ships released from transport service, and European demand for American wheat probably will not exceed our normal •urploa.

Out of a harvest which gave us only 20,000,000 bushels surplus ws actually shipped 141,000,000 buahels.

Of this number 4>had influenza during the ej idemic. During the first week of () tober there weres2 of the children sick, and eight of these hud pneumonia. At this noint tfi" fresh air and sunshine treatment was intn duced upon the suggestion of the State Hoard of-Health. After beginning (his treatment onlv two addition al cases of pneumonia developed. Invariably the patients showed from the beginning of the treatment, and progressed rapidly to complete recovery. ...... _ . . This method of treating intlu en/a and pneumonia was recom menced by the State Hoard of , Health at the height of the epi demic in the State, when num erous committees wern 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 roßults, and upon the 'Uggostion of the State healtf lUthoritfPs it was tried in a num ber of ca-i's -in North Carolina. The results at the Tljomasville Orphanage are given because in 111 at east' there was a large num ber of patients ill when the .treatment wan inaugurated; there were pneumonia., c.omplicaflinis; the patients A* ere under excell eht control and careful observa tions could he made constantly In other words, it was a case of tPstiriK the measure on a large scale. Int)'ieii/.a, and the resultant, pneumonia, is continuing in many sections of the State The epidemic will in all pfobabilit continue', through the winter For the treatment ot both influ en/.a and pneumonia the Stat* Hoard of Health again urges this metl od of treat nent. The treatment is just what is implied in the name.
