Stripped of Everything by
Germany, Writes Red
Attaia, June 13. —Germany has
■tripped Rumania of everything,
write* a Red Cross agent from Bud
apest There are only eighty-four
locomotives In the whole country for
the transport of troops, munitions
and supplies. Of her seventeen the
oretical divisions eleven have had to
be demobilised for lack of food and
equipment There are not sufficient
horses to transport field artillery,
no tractors for the field artillery,
forty per cent of the Rumanian med
ical staffs died during the -war and
there are virtually no airplanes ar
mored cars o, tanks.
Despite the efforts of the authori
ties, the country is harboring Bol
shevik agents smuggled in by Rus
sia, Hungary and Bulgaria. As 60
per cent of Rumania is illiterate
the Bolshevik danger is apparent
Pood Is Big Meed
The greatest need is food. Pood
for the army and food for the civilian
population. America has sent a doz
en food ships to Rumania and the
American Red Cross is distributing
food at canteens and by means of
roiling soup kitchens wherever the
need is greatest In the Dobrudja
where the smallpox epidemic is at
its worst the American Red Cross
has many doctors and nurses.
America has loaned Rumania 35,-
•OCtMO but the financial situation of
the omtry remains critical, writes
the Red Cross man. This he attri
butes to Rumania's inability to ex
port and to the broadcast Issue dur
ing the German occupation of worth
less bank notes.
Clothing, Too
In addition to food the Rumanian
army and civilian population des
perately need clothing. Cloth for a
suit of clothes costs sixty dollars a
yard. A yard ef linen for shirts
costs eight dollars and a shirt of
ordinary quality 340. A pound of
butter costs 35.50.
"How can America help Romania?"
a Rumanian army officer was asked.
"Continue your splendid shipments
of food through the American Army
Food Mission and the American Red
Cross.' replied the officer. "Send us
propaganda written by Americans to
be dropped by airplanes in the 'Bol
shevik ranks. We must fight ideas
with ideas Our railroad and trans
port system is a wreck. Send us
some of the American railroad men
who did such wonderful work in
Prance." '
Sees Big Future
in A. E. F. University
Beaune, France, June 13. —Belief
that the American Expeditionary
Force University here has shown
that it is feasible to make the Unit
ed States army a great school for
America, is expressed by Dr. John
Erskine, professor of English In
Columbia University. Dr. Erskine is
one of the three members of the
recently created Educational Corps
of the American Expeditionary
The great university ta.nearing its
close for the troops soon must he
returned to America, but Dr. Bra
ktne tegards It as a laboratory
which has demonstrated the pos
sibility of universal training in
America with the United States
Army as the medium.
•"The A. E. P. University seems
to me a significant experiment from
the point of view of education In
the United States," said Dr. Ers
Mexico to Restrict
Asiatic Immigration
Mexleo City. June IS.—As a result
of reports that large numbers of
Chinese are arrivirg in Mexico, most
of them tn a bad state of health and
without money, it is said that a bill
will be presented in congress soon
urging that such Asiatic immigra
tion be restricted. It is feared the
Chinese will enter into direct eom-|
petition with Mexican labor and
eventually force down the wage
I scale.
A treaty exists between Mexico
and China whereby mutual immigra
tion is unrestricted but, according to
the newspaper Excelsior, the situa
tion is so "alarming" that legisla
tive action is probable.
