WORK OF VOLONTEERS
RED CROSS BACKBONE
Men and Women Who Give Serv
ices Aid Greatly Surgical
Dressings, Knitting, Sewing
Still Carried On.
I Thousands of women, who were
first enrolled as Red Cross workers
during the period o£ the World War,
have never ceased in their labors for
that organization, but still carry on
knitting garments for disabled sol
diers, making dresses and layettes
for children and infants, and giving
-hours of their time in the various
activities of Red Cross
jwork. Volunteer work by men also
plays a large part in the organization
of Red Cross.
This volunteer work is the back
bone of Red Cross. Fully eighty-five
per cent of the service this bumani- ■
tarian organization is able to render
the public, through public health,
American Junior Red Cross, service
to disabled veterans of the World
War, and the service men of the regu
lar establishment, and its many other
' activities, must fall upon the shoulder
of the volunteer worker. Not only
is this true of the national headquar
ters where such distinguished volun
teers are enrolled as Judge John Bar
ton Payne, chairman, and Miss Mabel
Boardman, secretary of the Red
Cross, and Col. E. P. Bicknell, vice
chairman in charge of foreign opera
tion, but also in every community
where Chapter chairmen and other
men and women devote hours of their
time to fostering and planning the
valuable and humane work of Red
Cross, so that it may be ever ready
to serve in time of distress, catas
trophe or great national emergency.
In the year just ended, 253,000 gar
ments were provided by Red Cross
Chapters, including 1,399 layettes
with nineteen articles each, for use
in disaster areas.
Women who rolled surgical dress
ings ten years ago, with the help of
new volunteers, still carry on this
work for hospitals in their communi
ties, and for the Chapter's stock,
where a supply must be maintained
to answer emergency calls. In the
year just ended, the women made

mas bags—one of which goes to
every service man in the Army and
Navy stationed on a distant post.
Each year the request comes for more
bags, until for Christmas, 1928, Red
j Cross volunteers have been asked to
i provide 42,000. The; bags, containing
J small necessities dear /to a service
' man's heart, go to the Philippines.
I China, Guam, Nicaragua and all the
i distant ports where Uncle Sam's men
| are stationed.
Another service these volunteers
1 perform, which has generally gripped
; the imagination of all who have come
| l* touch with, it, is the transcription
into Braille for the blind of hundreds
! of books. Need of certain types of
j books for the blind first came to the
I attention of Red Cross through the
blinded veterans of the World War.
From work begun for the war blind,
with a few devoted workers, this
transcription of books now is being
carried on by 1,029 Braille transcrib
ers, who during this year have hand
copied 150,705 pages, and 348 titles
have been completed.
