Dr. Worrell Gives First Con
tribution to Cause at
Offices Just Opened
b. W. Desant, of New York, who
is in Harrisburg assisting Chairman
Charles W. Burtnetl in the prelimi
naries of the campaign, through
which it is hoped to raise $38,000 in
Dauphin county for the benefit of
suffering Armenians and Syrians,
was asked to-day what is being done
with the money that is being raised
in the United States.
Mr. Desant said that besides the
boats of supplies and workers which
have been sent to the field, reports
and stories constantly come home
from those who have now been on
the field since the beginning, cast
ing bright and encouraging light
on the effect which their devoted
work is having on conditions in the
North East, as well as the need for
continued and greater effort until
not a starving orphan shall be left
unbefriended or a man and woman
deprived of the means of livelihood
through no fault of their own, be
left without the means of starting
life anew.
The following story just received
from John Elder, one of the relief
workers of the Armenian Committee
for Relief of the Near East in
Erivan, emphasizes both these points
in a particularly interesting way.
He says:
"The number of orphans has been
raised from 130 to 350, and may
soon be 450. This increase was im
perative. For weeks at a time dur
ing the fall 1 passed from two or
three to eight or ten grimy, shiver
ing. starving youngsters, crying by
the roadside, with no earthlv sup
port, deserted by parents unable to
care for them. There is no doubt
that hundreds, probably thousands
of them, died during the fall months
of sheer starvation.
"The industrial work has been in
creased in every department. The
looms are putting out about 10,000
arshens of material a week, as com
pared to some 5,000 before and 100
new looms are practically ready to
put to work. Our money here works
three times, one in giving work,
again in making cloth which we sell
at as low a price as possible, but
which brings at that a very con
siderable sum of money, and again
1n providing cloth for the half
naked refugee population of Ar
menia. We are at present working
on a government contract for 8,000
soldiers' uniforms of black and
white, and have about half finished.
Our workers are approximately as
follows, Erivan 5,500, Aslitarak 6.-
000 and Etchmiadzin 1,400, In all
about 7,500.
"In direct relief we are doing
Ihe following. A soup kitchen in
TCova Bayazed gives food to about
900 regularly, and a much larger
number occasionally. In Billigon we
have been giving milk and food to
some 400, but will soon close that
work as the refugees are leaving
Ihat region. In Erivan money dis
tribution reaches 500 or more a
month. In medical aid we reach
about 3,000 a month through a
company doctor. Dr. Mandinian
whom many of you may know, and
through the hospital and outpatient
department. During the cholera
epidemic we had a special doctor
giving full time to refugees in the
6trsets and gardens."
The Itev. Dr. Edwin R. Worrell,
of the Board of Temperance of the
Presbyterian Church, to-day made
the tirst contribution to the local
fund. Dr. Worrell appeared un
solicited before at the headquarters
of the local committee in the Boy
Scouts offices and handed in his
check to Mr. Heath cote.

Mexico Changes Its
Attitude Toward Foreign
Investments in Country
By Associated Press.
Washington, April 4. Recent pri
vate and official advices from Mexico
City are interpreted as indicating a
sudden change in sentiment in the
republic toward foreign investments
in Mexico and that the coming ses
sion of Congress will clear the at
mosphere of much of the hostility
shown sincA the adoption of the 1917
constitution. The American oil in
terests in Mexico have not receded
from the stand originally taken that
their vested rights in Mexico must
be recognized and that the anti-for
eign and confiscatory features of the
new constitution must not operate ex
post facto, against them.
