UNAUTHORIZED USE OF THE RED CHOSS The Red Cross Society is ah organ- which guards jealousls the pru ileges it has gained under inter- rational law after years of negotia- tion witii all the governments oi the vorld. It'never lends its name to un authorized represented es It does lot permit promiscuous use of ts brassard or its Hag. It carefully scrutinizes the standing j[ all 'organizations whicii apply: to t lor charters1. It has become the 'ashion to apply the term "Red Dross" to every form oi charitable undertaking but there is a groat dan- 'ci in this practice. The Red Cross las acquired its unique status bv it's solidarity and world-wide organiza- tion Strong as it" is, however, it nil be -weakened, it. its guaranty IE used in an' indiscriminate and un .uthorized way.

Miss Vrnoldi has a cornmission from the Militia Department in connection with field lomforts. She has no connection w ith ithe international and. world wide RrJ Cross. Centralization has been the keynote of Red Cross success. Work undertak en without the authorization of the Red Cross Societi is work over whn.Ii it has no control and for which it can heir no responsibilit; AH Red Cross worker should bear in mind that it is to the best inter- ests of the society to act through none hut the official channels.
