Albanians honor the 'Stars And Stripes'. Albanian children this year turned out in full force to do honor to America's Fourth of July and hoped in that manner to convey across the seas to American school children their gratitude for aid and sympathy sent them in their distress. With the 'Stars and Stripes' displayed side by side with their own national colors these poorly clad and miserable little war victims made a creditable showing all over Albania and the natives gathered from far and wide to watch them. They have learned of American children largely through the Junior Red Cross which has heaped many benefits upon them and is now encouraging national educational revival for them
