Its Work
Bucharest, Rumania, Oct. 21.
When the American Red Cross quits
the Balkans, when its work there
is completed, the people are not to
be left entirely alone. This was -the
promise made to the Balkan peo

American Red Cross, at the inau

program of medical and reconstruc
tion work is to follow the work of
emergency relief now drawing to a
close. r
"The great work done in the
Balkans," said Colonel Olds, "in the
main is over. The work of feeding
and clothing the helpless people of
the Near East is drawing fast to a
close. But we shall not leave these
nations without substantial legacies

German Newspaper Deplores
Moving of Capital to
Berlin, Oct. 21.—Under tlje caption |
of "The Murder of Berlin," the Boer
sen Zeitung, one of the ablest Ger
man newspapers, says the fate of the
city is in the balance, and that It Is,
perhaps, too late to save it from be
coming a city of the second-class in
every respect, with the removal of
| the capital and the activity in a busi
! nesa and political sense to some
j Rhlneland city. It is a theory that
• has been gaining ground lately and
j causing Berlin to lose sleep,
j "One day" the financial paper adds,
I "there will bo a fearful awakening
if the problem that confronts us is
j not recognized and solved at the
I twelfth hour. The problem is to save
j Berlin from destruction."
j Tho paper then cites tho January
] riots by the Spartacists from the
wounds of which Berlin has never re
| covered. "Then came the March dis
orders, followed by the July trans
portation strike which throw Berlin
i into a chaotic state. The strikes
' then ensued one after another in an
endless succession. The uncertainty
of the economic situation led to al
most a boycotting of Berlin as the
chief work center of Germany, for in
dustry had to be sure of quiet and or
der in Its search for labor, and Berlin
daily was the opposite.
Despite tho huge expense, one in
dustry after another left Berlin for
■quieter, steadier field. Now the win
ter months are comings already full of
threats of uprising and strikes.
Merchants, politicians and indus
trial leaders have predicted that the
transfer of the Assembly or Reich
stag, would inflict a severe blow upon
Berlin, especially if It should lead to
tlu choice of another capital.
The label "imperial capital," and Its
enormous labor possibilities have
been Berlin's chief claims to super
iority., It has been the industrial
heart of the empire. Yet say manu
facturers, labor is now systematically
laming industry and destroying it.

American Grandmother
May Sue the Viscount
From Being Bankrupt
London. Oct. 21. —Viscount Uffing
ton, whose name appears in the list
of "receiving orders" in bankruptcy,
is the heir to the Earlom of Craven
and his maternal grandmother was
Mrs. Bradley Martin, of New York.

that he young viscount's embarrass
ments can be only temporary, since
he is said to be heir to much of the
wealth of his American grandmother
and in addition, is heir to his father's
lands and three mansions. Lord Uf
-1 flngton came of age in 1917. He was
seriously wounded while fighting in
France it being necessary to ampu
tate his right leg above the knee.
Kidnaping Trail
Leads to Dansey Home
Hammonton, N. J., Oct. 21.—De
tectives have begun a new inquiry
into the disappearance of 3-year-old
Billy Dansey on the theory that the
kidnapers on the day Billy vanished
drove to the Dansey home and talk
ed with some one in the house.
This turn in the case was caused
by an examination of the wagon
tracks of the buggy in which the
boy is believed to have been taken
from this town.
John T. Wilson, chief of decetives
of Atlantic county, has satisfied him
self that whoever stole Billy Dansey
took him away in a light buggy, the
tracks of which ran to the main pike
leading to Egg Harbor. These wagon
tracks depart from the main road
near the Dansey home. At a point
100 yards or more from the road
they lead to the Dansey home.
The tracks led to the rear of the
house where Dansey and his wife
slept. At the rear entrance the
tracks were deeply marked, show
ing that the buggy halted there for
a time. Another fact learned is that
when Billy Dansey left his home he
was dressed in new shoes, a new
hat, clean clothes and stockings.

Various Kinds in Jugo-Slavia

Belgrade, Oct. 21. —Not the least of
tho ills that beset Jugo-Slavia is the
scrambled condition of its paper cur
rency. The paper money of half a
dozen countries is in circulation in
various parts of the Kingdom of the
Serbs. Croats and Slovenes. In Bel
grade itself the "krone" of Austrian
ancestry is still the unit ip which all
commodities are priced.
The situation is further complicat

varies from day to day.
