Members of the Interallied Medical Commission sent by the League of Red Cross Societies to study the typhus situation in Poland leaving the military hospital at Kowel after a conference with the local military medical authorities. From a population of 30,000 people before the war Kowel is now reduced to 24,000 inhabitants. In the surrounding district approximately one-fourth of the population has died of typhus, entire villages having been wiped out.

The Commission has recommended united effort to deal effectively with the situation in Poland and prevent the spread of typhus to Western Europe and America

Good Old Army slum. "Slum" might not appeal to some of the ex-doughboys but it certainly looked good to the thousands of half-starved Russian refugees in the Black Sea ports. When it became known that the city of Novorossisk could not hold out more than a few more days the population fled in panic to the railroad station and the docks to escape. The American Red Cross officers calmly went on dishing out soup to the population until a few hours before the last refugee boat left the city. Then the kitchens were moved aboard the boats and the refugees fed until they reached the Crimea and were in safety once more. This picture shows Lieut. L.M. Foster of Chicago with his rolling kitchen in service
