aid lo people in their r terrorstricken flight before the surging flood water which has washed their homes away has about it a certain excitement and glamor Its the Ihing we read most about in the newspapers and see pictured on TV Its im portant and the Red Cross YOUR RED CROSS is always there But the task doesnt end there To the contrary it merely starts there The business of rehabili tating thefloodstricekn families getting them back in their homes and the breadwinners back on their jobs is the one that really calls for skill experi ence and Infinite patience Only the Red Red Cross what the job takes And no glamor attaches to it Mostly its on a personloperson counseling basis with the gen eral public only vaguely aware of what goes on behind the scenes An experienced and sym pathetic Red Cross worker in planning a program for the indi vidual family must be as con versanl with the peculiar prob lems involved as any member of the illfated household When the Water Recedes There is an element of high adventure when homes are break ing away from their moorings and being buffeted about by a rising wall of water But a days later when the water has eceded the scene is one of deso ation
