Dr. F. Nansen, High Commissioner or the League of Nations for Relief in Russia, announces that on May 1 a change will be made in the composition of the food parcels delivered to individuals in Russia for the Nansen Food Drafts. By this decision a saving of $6.75, or 128% is effected by all who send relief to Russia in the form of Nansen Food Drafts.

It is the idea of the Nansen service that by early in May with vegetables beginning to be sold in the markets of Russia, the cost of flour generally in Russia will be less than flour can be bought outside of Russia and shipped in for. On this account, flour has been eliminated from the Nansen parcels, and other articles which cannot be obtained in Russia have been added.
