Pinning on the Donkey's Tail. Albanian war orphans spend an exciting afternoon at the American Red Cross playground in Tirana "pinning the tail on the donkey". A white sheet with a donkey sketched upon it is tacked to the wall of a ruined house, a child is blind-folded and then attempts to put the tail in its proper place on the donkey. The one who comes nearest is given a prize of a new dress, a skein of wool or some useful article. Note the intense interest with which each child is watching the operation. To the right can be seen Miss E.P. Cobley, New Orleans, in charge of the Tirana playground
