, ;uidng Materl Furnished By Na-
tives To Americans For Some-
thing To Wear.
Darachichak, Armenia, Sept 4 (By
'. P.)-Old clothes contributed by
America's ever-charitable families
have literally rebuilt this city, which
before the war was a prosperous and
happy community living within the
hadow of Mount Ararat. Scores of
*hattered buildings have been restor-
Id from the proceeds of discarded
arments which, to the half-naked
4atives, were of greater value than
In a country swept by war and af-
terwards ravaged by the Turk, build-
ing material was almost impossible
to be obtained when American relief
workers came here to rescue the last
vestiges of the American race. The
city was in ashes; money was worth-
ss, food was difficult to obtain.
There were 50 deaths daily from
starvation and disease.
1+ In order to relieve the situation the
.;Americans were forced to resort to
the primitive method of barter. In
eturn for old clothing they received
mrom inhabitants all kinds of frag-
.ments of houses from ruins of the
larger neighboring cities. Streams of
.half-starve'd natives carrying timbers,
"joists, doors, windows and loads of
bicks on their backs poured into
Darachichak from distant points, and
received in return warm coats, blan-
kets, shawls and shoes from the
cargoes of relief supplies sent from
America. Police guards became ex-
austed in keeping the hordes of
ypeople in line.
For once the ragman was mighties
than the millionaire; an old pair o
*oes or winter-before-last's discard-
ed overcoat had greater purchasing
gpower than the American dollar. The
atives had no incentive to work for
mere money, they could have made
..u purdhases with gold or silver,
tor there was nothing to buy in the
devastated country. But with clothes
tO be had at the end of a hard day's
work labor they turned to with a will,
toiling under the weight of heavy
timbers and loads of bricks and
stones. The shortage of building ma-
terials soon became a surplus. The
town which the Turks destroyed was
restored, and even enlarged by the
construction of large buildings to
h&ouse the thousands of orphans who
sought refuge with the American
relief organization.,

'B known throughout the Near East,
and' Thomas Mills, of New York City,
the Near East Relief worker, who was
in charge of the district became

Bank of Old Clothes."

*terized tire spring and summer
"The -boom is undoubtedly due to
4he .improvement in the weather,"
said one theatrical producer. Also the
evenings are drawing in. Daylight
saving is always a blow at the thea-
tte. Now people haven't time to play

tennis before it gets dark, and in con-
sequence they go to the theatre.
"It is perhaps unfortunate that the
standard of plays is not what it was
in pre-war days. There is a dearth
of playwrights. No new names are
coming along, Of course, there is an
army of those who write high-brow
stuff, but their efforts are wasted on
the general public. We want menj
who can write popular plays."

Explains Interest Taken In Small

Dr. William F. Gerhardt, '17E, of
the department of aeronautical eng-
ineering, was granted leave from the
United States Air Service in order
to take charge of work in that de-
partment of the University in the ab-
aence of Prof. F. W. Pawlowski, but
e stayed on through the interna-
'ional air races held at McCook Field
Jn Dayton, Ohio. His remarks upon
the air races are particularly inter-
