AID SOUGHT BY RED CROSS

Large Relief Fund Needed to Carry on Work in War-Ridden Balkans.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The American Red Cross Society has issued an appeal to the colleges of the United States to aid in completing the Balkan-Turkish Relief Fund. According to reports given out through the International Red Cross Committee conditions are extremely critical in the hospitals and relief stations near the seat of war. Lack of funds and inferior medical supplies have caused great distress in several of the large camps of Greece and Montenegro, where wounded refugees have congregated.

In appealing for financial aid the American Red Cross Society points out that during the Spanish-American War the European Societies contributed heavily to the care of sick and wounded soldiers. All contributions to the Balkan-Turkish Relief Fund should be sent at once to H. Francke, 7 Holyoke place, or to G. M. Lane, treasurer of the Red Cross Committee for Massachusetts, 44 State street, Boston.
