THURSDAY. OCTOBER 27, 1921. 850 DISASTER DEATH TOLL FOR ONE YEAR Red Cross Gives $1,871,000 Re lief When 65,000 Families Are Made Homeless. Forty-three diameters, resulting la the death In the United State* of SOC person* and the Injury of 2,000 called for emergency relief measures and the expenditure of $1,871,000 by the American Red Croon daring the fiscal year ending June 30, 1921, *a.v* on announcement based apon the forth coming annual report of the Red Cross. These disasters caused property dam age estimated at $90,000,000, affected slrty-seven comjnunlU** and rendered 60,000 families homeless. The year's disasters were of vary ing types, Including several which pre vlously had never been thought of as falling within that classifies tjpn. The Red Cross furnished relief In seventeen fires of magnitude, five floods, seven tornadoes or cy clones, one devastating storm, three explosions, Including the one In Wall street; one building accident, twj typhoid epidemic*, fhb most serious be ing that at Salem, Ohio, which af fected 9 per cent of the population; one smallpox epidemic. In the republic of Haiti; one train wreck, the race riot at Tulsa, Okla.; the famine In China, emergency relief In famine among the Indians of Alaska, the grasshopper plague In North Dakota and an earth quake In Italy. Puablo Most Serious By far the most severe of the dis asters In the United States during the period covered by the Red Cross re port was the Pueblo flood early In June, 1921. The rehabilitation prob lem confronting the Red Cross In Pueblo was one of the most difficult fh recent years. 'When the first news of the horror was flashed throughout the country, the American Red Cross National Headquarters responded with a grant of $105,000 for relief work. Governor Bhoup of Colorado, appre ciating the long and successful exjterl ence of the Red Cross In organizing disaster relief work, placed the en tire responsibility for the administra tion of relief in its hands. In response to appeals from Presi dent Harding, Governor Shoup and other governors of western states and through local chapters of the Red Cross and other community organiza tions, public-spirited citizens brought the total contributed for Pueblo’s re habilitation to more than $825,000. The terrible havoc wrought by the flood waters is a matter of record. More than 2,300 homes were affected and 7,351 persons were left homeless. Estimates of $500,000 as an absolute minimum for rehabilitation were made by Red Cross officials In charge of ih • relief work. Fast Work in Wall Street The Wall street explosion was nota ble in that relief workers of the Red Cross were on the scene twenty min utes after the disaster occurred. The race riot at Tulsa also was unique in disaster relief annals In that outside of a small emergency relief fund con tributed by the Red Cross, the only reject measures outside the city con , sisted of the service of social work ers. nurses and a trained executive whose object was to assist local forces in directing their own efforts. In decided contrast with the pre vious year, only one tornado assumed the proportions of a major disaster. This occurred on April 15, in the bor der sections of Texas and Arkansas with the city of Texarkana as the center. The significant feature of this disaster relief work was the fact that it covered so much rural territory as to make necessary a large number of relief workers. The famine In China, necessitating relief expenditures totalling more than $1,000,000 by the American Red Cross was by far the most serious of the foreign disasters in which the Ked Cross gave aid. Builds Up Its Machinery In connection with the administra tion of disaster relief measures, an In creasing effectiveness on the part of the Red Cross to deal with emergen cies was manifested during the past year. In 328 Chapters of the Ameri can Red Cross there have been formed special committees to survey the re sources of their respective communi ties and to be prepared in case of disaster. In others of the 3,402 active Chapters, a network of communication has been formed through which instan taneous relief may be dispatched to any part of the United States. That its work in this field may he continued with ever greater effective ness. the American Bed Cross is ap pealing for widespread renewal of membership during Its Annual Roll Call, to be conducted this year from November 11 to 24. LIFE SAVING CORPS ENROLLMENT 10,000 Growth of Rod Cross Life Saving Corps throughout the country con tinued unabated during the last fiscal year, a summary of the year's achievements by that Red Cross Serv ice shows. There are now 160 Corps with a total membership of more than 10,000 members, of which 1,276 are sufficiently skilled In the work to act as examiners. Among the outstanding achievements of the Red Cross in tills field during the last year was the or ganization at the United States Naval Academy, Annapolis, of what is per haps the largest life saving corps in the world, _ BETHEL NEWS * * Mr. Odell Starnes spent Thursday night with Mr. Ira Adams.

I only weighed 125 lbs. when 1 commenced the treatment and todav I weigh 140 lbs., and am prac tically well. I can’t give too much praise to Dr. Pierce’s God-given remedies.” — John A.
