needing a touch of homeover in a distant land that God forgot Its called Korea A heavily expanded Red Cross rec reational program for our young sters over there has been request ed by pur defense authorities The second of these reasons is the protection against the paralyz ing effects of polio in the 250 coni munities of America where in the months ahead this dread disease is expected to reach epidemic propor tions Here again our defense mbbilizatibn authorities have asked the Red Cross to be the Minister of Mercy Oddly enough these two requests for an expanded program were received at the very time the RedCross was developing a budget which would have been no and possibly a mite that of the past year All of a sud den therefore that dream went out the window Instead the people ol America are being called upon for total of million a top figure for a the present can be referred to as peacetime It Will Cost Million What would YOU have done ii you had been sitting in on thai meeting of the Red CrossBoard of Governors at which this decision had to be made While I cant say for sure I have a hunch that your judgment would have been the same as I did have a voice in the decision The Red Cross was born out of an instinct in mankind to alleviate the pain and distress in human beings everywhere Here was a Nationalists Void 1945 Treaty With Russia Governor Can Change
