It Is In the 2,2W* of the 8,600 Red
Cross Chapters which still are helping
•olve the veteran’s problem of adjust
ing lilmsclf to a normal civilian status
that the greater part of the cost of this
service is borne. Of the total sum
spent for veterans’ relief last year.
National Headquarters expended n to
tal of more than $2,000,000, while the
remaining disbursement of approxi
mately $7,000,000 represents the con
trlbuttnn of Chapter* In this country
wide effort to assist the Government
In providing the aid sorely needed by
these men and their families.
An Ever Expanding Problem
That the problem of the disabled
•ervice man lx ever-expanding and
probably will not reach the peak be
, fore 1926, is the assertion of well-in
formed Government officials and that
2,.107 Red Cross Chapters regard It
•a their most Important work is evi
dence that the expansion Is In nowise
eonflned to a particular section but Is,
on the contrary, nation-wide. At the
end of the fiscal year, June 30, 1921,
there were 26,300 disabled service men
In the 1,692 United States Public
Health Service, Contract and Govern
ment Hospitals and Soldiers Homes,
and that number Is Increasing ut a
rate of 1,000 a month.
Thousands of these men receiving
medical treatment, compensation and
■vocational training from the Govern
ment today, started their efforts to
obtain them through the Red Cross
Chapter. The Chapter, aetlng as the
disabled man's agent In claims against
the Government, Informs the man as to
the procedure necessary to gain for
him that which is provided him by
Federal statute. His applications for
compensation, medical treatment anti
training are properly filed with the aid
of the Red Cross Chapter.

Chapter, afterward he comes Into con

In which these men are being cared
