Download PDF for this date

The Nansen Relief Mission has suspended all package service to Russia on account of the difficult transportation there, but food drafts are still issued calling for the delivery in Russia of foods imported without the payment of duty.

Miss Mary Lena Wilson, secretary of the American Committee for Relief of Russian Children, is in Moscow now arranging for the continuation of the work of child feeding, which that Committee has conducted in Russia for the past two years, through the coming winter.
