SUFFERING IN SERBIA
Belgrade, Oct. 10. Pressing need
for relief work among the children of
Serbia is shown in a report issued by
the American Red Cross which states
J that of 360,000 orphans and half-
orphans in the country, only 1400 can
be cared for by existing orphanages.
A considerable proportion of the
oiphans outside the institutions are
cared for by relatives, most of them
in reduced circumstances themselves.
Ic is estimated that about 100,000
fall in this class. The others have
maintained a precarious existence
during the summer months as the
charges of communities that will find

The immediate problem of the Am American

the finding of shelter, food and med-

TAKES A HAND
Wants to Know Why Miami School
Children Have No Books
Why was not the order for school
books placed earlier and a sufficient
supply on hand when school opened?
Why cannot the old text books be used
until the new ones arrive ? Why are
not plans being made now to enlarge
the school buildings of the city and
county? The American Legion, or organization
ganization organization of world war veterans,
i seeks answers to these questions, and
at last night s meeting of the legion
a committee composed of Capt. J. T.
Wigginton, Rev. Robert N. Ward and
J. L. Godley was appointed to make
an investigation and report at the next
Captain Wigginton broached the
subject, and Mr. Ward, W. P. Smith,
J. C. Cleary, Judge Sam J. Barco and
others entered into the discussion.
Captain Wigginton said he had three
children in the public schools but only
one child has a book. Two of the
children go to school in the morning
and one in the afternoon and this one
does not get home until after dark.
Plenty of Old Books
"We have real explanations of why
there are no school books, but none of
these explanations explains' said the
captain. "There are plenty of old
books, standard text books that were
used other years, in the city, and I
should think it would be better to use
these than not to give the children
any books at all. As it is, one child
has a book and can get its lessons,
another hasn't a book, and at the end
of the term one passes and the other
is flunked. It isn't right." He also
spoke of the crowded condition of the
schools and expressed the belief that
something ought to be done now to
relieve this congestion.
"I told my 12-year-old boy this
evening that he must get his lessons
before he went down town, and asked
him where were his books," said Mr.
Smith. "He reached in his trousers
pockets, and pulled out a couple of
fish hooks, a jackknife, a piece of
string and two or three scraps of
paper and these scraps of paper
were his 'books.'
"There is no sense in waiting until
next year before talking about build building

took up at a previous meeting. Mr.
Cleary said "we are dabbling in poli policies,
cies, policies, not politics,' 'and Judge Barco
declared that an investigation ought
to be made no matter who might be
hit by such an uncovering of facts.
"It looks to me like a case of passing
the buck," said the judge.
