WOMAN 8HOW8 WAY TO BEAT
HIGH C08T OF TRAVELING.
By associated Press.
Ia>s Angeles, Cal., Oct. 13.—The
fHgfc cost of living—Including the high
cost of traveling—means nothing to
Wm Adah Bradley, who has just ar-
rived here with her six children after
traveling from Silver Lake, Ore.—a
distance of 1500 miles—at a total fi-
mncial expenditure of fifty coots.
Mrs. Bradley lived eighteen years
In Eastern Oregon, having gone there
au organist for a band of Baptist mis-
sionaries and remaining to marry a
rancher and become tbe mother of
mlix. More than a year ago, she said,
Mer husband left home and she had
not seen him since. He left behind
Mm an elderly hofse and two-seated
carriage, minus*a top, but equipped
with loose spokes in the wheels.
Finally, in despair at her situation,
Mrs. Bradley put her six children, a
frying pan and all the family clothing
into the carriage, hitched the old
horse to It and started for Los Ange-
les. She had just fifty cents in cash
but much courage.
The day of their departure was May
15, 1919. They made the trip In a lit-
tle less than four months. They
stopped at friendly farmhouses and
when they reached an orchard where
the crop was being harvested, she
went to work. Esther, her eldest clld,
12 years old, helped her. Hosnier,
11, the only boy, lid the same. Bose,
9, did what she could along the same
line, Mary, 7, took care 6f Iris, 4,
and Grace, 2, the baby.
“We had to suffer hardships, of
course,” Mrs. Bradley said, “but we
found the hearts of all the people we
met were big. Now that it is over,
I think it was a wonderful experience.
What we want now is a place to start

Corpus Christ!, Txas, Oct. 13.—The
methods used in the work of rehabili-
tation in Northern France and Flan-
ders by the American Red Cross are
being employed by the Red Cross In
Corpus Christ! and the area around
the city which was devastated by the
tropical hurricane of September 14.
“Of course the 132 disasters that the
Red Cross has handled in this coun-
try,” says A. W. Jones, Jr., of St.
Louis, director of. civilian relief for
the Southwestern division, and in
direct charge of the work here, “the
task at Corpus Christ! Is one of the
largest. Home after home has been
laid waste and many of the people
are absolutely destitute."
The method followed by the Red
Cross is one of orderly and thorough
system that reaches every person in
direct way in the entire district.
All parts of Nueces and San Patricio
counties, where the flood did its great-
est damage, have been districted and
two trained experts put in each dis-
trict. Data is gathered as to loss
sustained and the resources and .the
needs of the person or family.
After this is compiled, it is checked
off against the available fund and re
lief will be administered. Just how
much financial aid can be given is
still unknown, as a part of the No-
vember drive of the Red Cross will
be used in rehabilitation work here,
and the citizens’ relief committee still
is calling for more contributions. Not
only the loss suffered,, but the ability
of the person to recuperate is taken
into consideration befpre he is given
any aid other than for his immediate
Early In-the participation of the
United States in the world war, the
American Red Cross perceived the
value of mobilizing the school children
of the country and the Junior Red
Cross was organized. Before the war
ended nine million children were en-
rolled and helped In the war fund
and membership campaigns, in chap-
ter production of relief supplies and
manufacturing furniture for the ref-
ugees whose homes and household
goods were destroyed.
Children everywhere to the United
States responded to the call to serv-
ice sounded by President Wilson as
head of the American Red Cross.
This photograph is that of an en-
thusiatic young Japanese member of
the Junior Red Cross of Spokane,
Wash., starting out on the ambitious
undertaking of collecting “a mile of
pennies” for war relief. A compre-
hensive peace program is now being
worked out for the Junior Bed Cross,
which is being held Intact.

As far back as the first winter of
the war, the Red Cross sent to Serbia
_ sanitary commission that effective-
ly checked the scourge of typhus, but
after the United States entered the
conflict, the Red Cross was able, In
August, 1917, to send a full commis-
sion that carried on extensive relief
operations among the suffering ref-
ugees of the tortured nation. Hospi-
tals were established, the refugees fed,
clothed and given medical attention,
the army supplied with much needed
dental treatment, farm machinery, and
seeds provided to help the Serbs re-
deem their land to productivity, and,
not least, measures undertaken for the
succor of the children. The terrible
condition into which these helpless vic-
tims of the war bad fallen is well
portrayed by this photograph of a
little Serbian girl wearing the rags
and expression of hopeless dismay
that were all she possessed when the
Red Cross came.
Berlin Sept. 14.—(correspondence)
■The H nsa Bund of Harburg, a mer-
cantile r. sociatloJJ^ of the great port,
has requ.ated the publishers of the
German Officers’ Gazette, to publish
a demand upon the public, not to read
Jewish newspapers. The demand
mentions as some of the more promi-
nent German papers owned by Jews
the Berlin Tageblatt, the Ullstein pa-
pers, Vossische Zeitung, Berliner Zei-
tung am Mittag, Morgenpost and the
This i8 the latest, and most direct
move in the anti-semitic campaign
that is growing in Germany. It is
another result of the revolution, that
in removing /the old censorship, re-
moved with it every vestige of control
The Pan German papers of course
are behind the anti-semitic campaign,
becoming bolder and bolder week by
week until some virtually plead for
pogroms while others content them-
selves with, earnest hopes that all the
Jews will leave Germany and go to
Palestine—or anywhere else in the
world than Germany.
TJie agitation began, as The Associ-
ated Presp correspondent had ample
opportunity to see, in Bavaria shortly
after the armistice and the revolution.
Jt was at first inspired by opponets
of Kurt Eisner and the other Jews
who constituted a part of the govern-
ment of the first republic of Bavaria.
It was furthered chiefly by the officer
caste, which found thousands of sym-
pathizers among the real Bavarians
who joined the movement in dislike
if not hatred of the foreign element
that had invaded Bavaria during the

ing rapidity, and blazed out in North-

existed but had been more or less dor-
mant because of the government re-
strictions. It has achieved greater
headway because some .members of
the present government are Jews.

took st'ps to prevent a threatened
