5900000 'WORKERS HELP
SELL RED CROSS SEALS
Anti-Tuberculosis Association Expects
to Raise $1,000,000 This
Year
Few people have any conception of
the magnitude of the Red Cross Christ-
mas seal campaign. Here are a few
figures that will show what a gigantic
movement this is. Already 325,000,000
seals have been printed and practical-
ly that entire number distributed to
agents in every state and territory of
the Union from Alaska to the canal
zone, from,Porto Rico to.Hawaii, and
even in the far-off Philippines.
Advertising circulars; posters, cards,
etc., to the number of several million,
have able been distributed. Not less
than 1,000,000 personal letters asking
people to buy seals have been sent out.
It is estimated that the army of work-

ers, nearly all of whom are volunteers,
engaged in selling the seals numbers
more than 500,000.
The advertising and publicity de-
voted to the campaign amounts to sev-
eral hundred thousand dollars. Every
effort is being put forth to sell 100,-
000,000 seals, or only one for every
man, woman and child in the United
States.
This will mean $1,000.000 for the
anti-tuberculosis campaign in the
United States. More than 1,500 anti-
tuberculosis associations of the coun-
try derive their support from Red
Cross seals.
WISCONSIN STATISTICAN
INVESTIGATES UNIVERSITY
Dr. B. R. Buckingham, educational
statistician of the Wisconsin state
board of education, yesterday com-
pleted an investigation of the financial
and educational administration of the
University, which lasted two days.
Dr. Buckingham made investigations
with regard to the size of university
classes, the salaries of professors and
instructors, and like matters. He will
visit several state universities and
make similar investigations. His pur-
pose is to secure data to be embodied
in the legislative budget for Wisconsin
state educational institutions.

Mission in Armenia, Saves
25,000 Lives
By Wilbur S. Forrest
" (United Press Staff Correspondent)
London, Dec. 5.-(Special.)-The
champion life saver of the world Is
probably George F. Gracey, late of
the American mission, in Armenia. To
Gracey's credit today are 25,000 lives.
The story of how this modern Moses
shepherded his enormous flock out of
the Armenian province of Van just
ahead of the hungry hand of the ad-
vancing Turk has just reached west-
ern civilization.
Advised to Get Armenians to Safety.
Gracey, the only western white man
in the district, was advised by the Rus-
sian military authorities to get his
Armenians to safety. Across Lake
Van, Gracey could see the flare of
burning buildings and hear the sound
of Turkish guns. The Turks had just
retaken the town of Mush from the
Russians and were pouring on through
Armenia dealing heavy blows to all
Armenians, men and women alike, as
fast as they met them.
The nearest point of safety for
Gracey's flock was Igdiah, 150 miles
away. The Russians could offer no
protection'along the only route of exit
which lay through the pass of Bekrl-
Kala, a lonely mountain outlet, infested
by bandit Kurds. The American mis-
sion representative overcame this em-
barrassment by arming 200 of his
Armenian men.
Put Enemy to Flight After Battle.
After a hot fight they seized the
mountain pass and put an enemy, many
times their number, to flight. One
thousand refugees an hour passed
through the Russian lines into the
pass. When the procession was fully
on its way, including 6,000 cattle, it
took two days to pass a given point.
The march continued for five days. Im-
provised stoves of flat stones cooked
unleavened bread for the refugees en-
route. Flour and sugar were the only
rations.'
The final stages of the march lay
through a waterless plain. Word of
the caravan preceded it to Igdiah. On
the fifth day as they approached their
objective, the Armenians were met
with supplies of soup, bread, water,
and fodder.
Despite the fact that Gracey's army
covered 30 miles a day with scanty
food and shelter the march was singu-
larly uneventful. Five babies were
born enroute. All of them live and
will someday be told the tale. Various
children were separated from their
parents. A few days later, In Igdiah,
they were sorted out and claimed.
Gracey Native of Belfast, Ireland.
Gracey is a native of Belfast, Ire-
land. Aside from his connection with
the American mission he served in
Armenia as an administrator for the
London lord mayor's fund, a voluntary
contribution scheme for the aid of
Armenian citizens. The saviour of the
25,000 is today in England appealing
for funds to carry on the work.

That business in the United States
for the next five years depends al-
most entirely on the European war
and its estimated after effects, is the
substance of a report given out by
Spencer, Trask & Co., of New York.
As evidence of this, the fact is that
the presidential election 'occasioned
only a transient effect on the stock
market as compared with that caused
by peace rumors.
The statement goes on to say that
while the allies are now able to pro-
duce almost all the ammunition re-
quired by them, yet a margin of safety
is demanded by them of enough war
materials to keep the American mu-
nitions factories going at top speed. In
addition this country is called on to
produce an ever increasing quantity
of commodities and supplies, due to
the continuing withdrawal of men
from the agricultural and manufactur-
ing industries in the belligerent coun-
tries.
The scarcity 'of labor in Europe is
having an effect here in the demands
of the working men for higher wages
to meet the advanced cost of living.
Three reasons are assigned by the au-
thor of the report for the increase in
living expenses of more than 30 per
cent since August, 1914. They are:
The war, our abnormal prosperity, the
season's poor grain crops.
No let up in prices is looked for
'from the sources that usually occasion
a diminution, owing to the very un-
usual nature of the demand.
Further distress will be occasioned
when the exhausted fighters get to-
gether in an attempt at peace settle-
went. A long period must necessarily
be taken up in the attempt to settle
the post bellum status of, not only
the fighting lands in Europe, but also
whole empires in Africa and Asia
which are involved through the me-
dium of one or another of the Eu-
ropean powers.
The only remedy that has had any
effect so far is the marked increase in
money rates brought into being by the
huge loans to England, France, Rus-
sia, and China. Money for speculative
purposes is getting scarcer, and the
time is fast approaching when banks
will become much less free with ac-
commodations than they have been for
some time past.
SOLDIERS HARD TO AMUSE
London Tries Many Ways to Please
Wounded Men
London, Dec. 5.--(Special.)-Enter-
taining thousands of slightly wounded
men is a regular man's job. London
is beginning to feel the effects of the
big push on the Somme, whence come
vast crowds of soldiers who rest in
local hospitals before returning to the
firing line.
It takes the ingenuity of the enter-
tainers and at the most, they can only
hope to occupy a small portion of the
tedious hours for the convalescents.
As a new stunt at one of the entertain-
ments, a dozen or more women unfas-
tened their coiffed hair and the Tom-
mies held a contest to see which could
reconstruct the most artistic head-
dress. It required real fortitude on
the part of the women but in some
manner they must provide amusement.
Recently the suburb of Richmond
was thrown into an uproar when three
Australians amused themselves for an
hour or so by diving, fully dressed,
from a high bridge over the Thames.
The astounded passerby thought at
first the three were attempting suicide
but when the stunt was staged a see-
