Mentenegrin Markets Barren of Food. Podgeritza's market place and the familiar town pump in the center of the square. There is little to be brought these days at the markets of Montenegro for little is produced in this devastated country where the best man-power has been lost through the war and where the heavy labor has been left entirely left to women, already overburdened and weakened with hunger. But for the intervention of the American Red Cross and the timely support of the Juniors of America in furnishing supplies of food, clothing and medicines Montenegro would doubtless be today a land of the dead
