The latest in royal reviews. Ever since the armistice, the fashion in "reviews" has changed considerably in the Balkans. Instead of long parades of gold braided officials and smart uniformed soldiery, as in the "Old Days", there are inspections of bread and soup lines, and files of ragged, destitute peasants. This picture illustrates the change in the old order. Queen Marie of Roumania is shown handing out American Clothing, and food to ragged peasants at a Red Cross relief station near Domnesti. As an American Red Cross worker Queen Marie had an opportunity to get first hand information from thousands of Roumanians as their conditions and needs

A Marvelous Transformation. A series of three pictures illustrating the "before and after" periods of American Red Cross clothing distribution in Montenegro. The Raggedest Man in Montenegro. With clothes that were patched, darned and held together by bits of twine, shedding ravelings at almost every step, this man wandered into the market place at Podgoritza with a goat which he spent four years in a mountain cave during the Austrian occupation of the country with the goat as his only companion. With the money secured from its sale he set out to buy some clothes but could find no garment that could be bought at that price. He was picked up by Lieut. Col. H.L. Fairclough of Leland Stanford University, director of the American Red Cross work in Montenegro, as the raggedest of all ragged men in the country, and taken to the Red Cross relief station

"Ding! Ding! Hold Your Hats." Riding a military narrow-gauge railroad from Bazar Schak, Albania, to Vora, is a delightful experience scenically. There's not much comfort on the jilting little cars, with hard pine benches, however. This party enroute to the American Red Cross relief station in Vora is composed of (from left to right) Miss Helen J. Ahren, Buffalo, Mrs. K. Bryan, of Denver; Miss Beatrice Moore of Sandy Springs, Md., and Dr. John Dooley Lyttle of Newark, N.J. The railway is operated by the Italian army of occupation

In the Piping Days of Old. This beautiful garden, a part of the Roumanian Royal Summer Palace at Sinai, was the scene of gorgeous festivals. But today it witnesses only processions of misery and want. For near it there is an American Red Cross relief station where the Roumanian peasants, made destitute by the war, come for rations of food, clothes and medical attention. Superstitious natives say its roses will never bloom again as the result of the scenes that have been enacted about it during the past year. In the foreground of the photo is Miss Constanza Caplescu, a Roumanian-American nurse who is serving with the Red Cross

Standing behind the dead man is the policeman who did the fatal shooting. The dead man, it is all-aged, had committed a series of daring robberies in the mountains

American Made Smiles. A group of happy Turkish children at Tuzi, Montenegro. The picture was taken at the American Red Cross relief station where hundreds of children are being fed and clothed. Under American influence and food these mountain children are growing into a particularly bright set of boys. The day this photograph was taken they were expecting an unusual event. The Red Cross truck is due with a load of clothes for them-the first they have had in five years. The chap in the center is the only happy one-and his trouble is only temporary, due to the loss of his fez in the scramble to be photographed and have their picture sent to America

Happiest Day in His Life. Three hours before this picture was snapped, this little Albanian boy of Tirana was a symphony of rags and vermin. Then came his turn at the showers of the Red Cross relief station where plenty of soap, and kindly nurses were responsible for a marvelous transformation. Next in order was a visit to the Junior Red Cross clothing room in the dispensary. Here the little fellow was dressed in the clothing he is wearing in this photo. It was the first complete outfit he had ever owned and he confided to the nurses, through interpreters, that "this is the happiest day of my life"

A Kiss for Cinderella. Just like the well known fairy, Queen Marie of Roumania dresses in peasant garb and goes out among her people. But unlike Cinderella she is recognized almost everywhere as the real Princess and accordingly the Roumanian people who meet her insist on paying homage in the accepted manner by kissing her hand. This shows the Queen distributing supplies at an American Red Cross relief station and accepting the people's customary expression of respect and appreciation for her efforts in their behalf

When the Day's Work is Done. Opposite the American Red Cross relief station at Ryeka, Montenegro, the farmers from the upper end of Lake Scutari moor their queer little boats when they come to market. And when they have exchanged all of their own produce for articles of more use to them they come back to their skiffs and wait for the day to get cooler before poling their boats back home. Very little money changes hands nowadays in Montenegrin markets. They are back to the primitive trading methods exchanging these articles of which they have many for those of which they have none. The Red Cross station can be seen in the background with an American supply truck drawn up before the door
