Red Cross Insistent on Impartial Relief, Davis States on Re-appointment As Chairman

Download PDF for this date

Distribution of relief must be on a basis of “absolute impartiality, with no discrimination because of race or religion,” Norman H. Davis emphasized today as he was reappointed chairman of the American Red Cross. Mr. Davis coupled this with the necessity for strict neutrality in all Red Cross action abroad as two cardinal principles to which the Red Cross was “adhering steadfastly.” He said that a special drive for war relief funds may be called by the Red Cross.
