Charles J. Vopicha, of Chicago American Minister to Roumania, who was in Bucharest when the Germans marched in, and who at that time represented the interests of seventeen Allied Nations, was one of the American Officials in Bucharest who took a deep interest in work of the A.R.C. during the late winter and spring, when the arrival of the Red Cross trucks in any suffering Roumanian village meant immediate relief from famine or the suffering caused by Typhus and Smallpox. Mr. Vopicha is the man at the right of this photo wearing civilian clothing. The R.C. ambulance, in this case, happens to be a part of the equipment of the Roumanian Red Cross, which cooperated to the fullest extent of its ability in aiding the American Red Cross commission in alleviating distress. The Roumanian government-and its Red Cross also, were hampered in carrying on relief work because of the extreme shortage in drugs, food, clothing, and hospital supplies, all of which were brought to the country in the first A.R.C. ship that arrived in February. From the big warehouses, into which the cargo was unloaded, supplies were hauled into trucks to the distress centers. In the photo are A.R.C. workers. The other men and women
