Liberating Albania's Babies. Dr. Lulu H. Peters of Los Angeles, Cal. shown here in the uniform of an American Red Cross nurse, in the midst of a group of Albanian children, is responsible for the liberation of 1500 Albanian infants from the "binding" board. Dr. Peters runs the Red Cross dispensary at Scutari. Strongest persuasion was needed to convince Albanian mothers that binding a child, mummy fashion to a board, is both unsanitary and cruel.
