Types of Polish refugees in the refugee camp at Kowel. The Interallied Medical Commission sent by the League of Red Cross Societies to investigate the typhus situation in Poland found that 2% of these refugee are infected with typhus and that relapsing fever and dysentery are also prevalent. Unless adequate delousing and disinfecting stations can be maintained through which these refugees shall pass before penetrating into the interior they will spread typhus and other infectious diseases in a manner that will not only be a menace to Poland but to Western Europe and America. The Polish Ministry of Public Health and the Army Medical Service are dealing with the situation as actively as their meager resources permit, but they are greatly handicapped by the lack of soap, disinfectants, drugs, sheets, blankets, food and trained personnel. The commission has reported that this is a matter of international moment, and it considers that wide spread epidemics will occur this winter unless the most active measures are taken to stamp out typhus in Poland and prevent its spread to Western Europe and America

Crowded refugee traini proceeding with returning Polish refugees from military centers on the Eastern front to refugee stations where they will be deloused and disinfected before being allowed to penetrate into the interior. It was estimated that between a million and a quarter and a million and a half of these refugee would return to Poland between June and the coming winter. Interallied Medical Comm, sent by the League of Red Cross Societies to investigate the Typhus situation in Poland found that 2% of these refugees are infected with typhus. The official report of the Comm. states that the present epidemic of typhus in Poland is widespread, with fresh cases being constantly introduced in the East by returning refugees and prisoners of war, and that unless the most active measures are taken to deal effectively with the situation there will be very serious epidemic this winter, which will be a menace not only to Poland but to Western Europe and America. The Polish authorities are doing their best to deal with the situation, but they are seriously handicapped by the lack of soap, disinfectants, drugs, sheets, blankets, clothing, food, hospital equipment and trained personnel

This scarecrow better clothed than the peasant. A member of the American Red Cross commission to western Russia and the Baltic states photographed this scarecrow on a farm in Latvia, just over the Lettish-Bolsheviki border. Passing by the next day he noticed that only the sticks of the scarecrow were there; that the long, ragged coat and the noth-eaten sic hat had disappeared. The farmer said that he had given them to a refugee who had just crossed through the Bolsheviki-Lettish front from Soviet Russia the night before. When refugees had changed clothing with the scarecrow there were not enough garments to cover the scarecrow
