Typhus patient convalescing at the infectious diseases hospital in Brest-Litovsk. No fuel is in for winter, and there is a total lack of mattresses and blankets. The Interallied Medical Comm. sent by the League of Red Cross Societies to study the typhus situation in Poland found that the present epidemic of typhus is wide spread and fresh cases are constantly being introduced from the East by returning refugees and prisoners of war. The Polish medical authorities are taking active measures to deal with this situation but they are seriously handicapped by the lack of soap, disinfectants, drugs, bedding and clothing and hospital equipment. In its official report the Comm. states that this condition is a matter of international moment, and that united action is needed to stamp out typhus in Poland to prevent its spread to Western Europe and America

Class room in the Sahara. Going to school in the Sahara Desert is a casual routine. The school room may be any perfunctory spot that looks comfortable and "smoking is allowed." A class in Mohammedanism is conning the Koran from wooden "slates" whereon all the wisdom considered necessary in this land is carved. When they have learned it all by heart backwards and forwards their education is considered complete. Thousands of children in this part of the world are toothless from lack of dentistry and other thousands are blind from lack of hygiene and sanitary measures. Bathing their faces in polluted streams causes part of the scourge of blindness, and the hot sun and sand also cause part of it. Some of the most worthy students are to be selected from among these oriental children and "coached" for scholarships in foreign schools and colleges by the Junior Red Cross of America. It is believed that this training will help them to carry back modern ideas to their people of an importance over the wisdom of the Koran for preventing the spread of disease

Queer shoes of Serbian school boy. Queer moccasins made of raw hides, pieces of old carpet and rags, compose most of the footware to be seen in Serbia to-day. Clothing of every sort is the greatest need of to-day in this land of distress. Children particularly in southern Serbia, are great sufferers, and lack of food and clothing are not the only things their frail, war-worn bodies contend with, lack of care and educational facilities are reducing them to little wild animals, and pitiable child vagrants. If the plans of the Jr. Red Cross of America becomes effective, all of these wandering, homeless children will be aided by funds sent by American school children. Vocational and industrial school centers will be established and maintained under Amercican superintendence, thus making these children over into the skilled labor so urgently needed by their country
