CHILD SAVING WORK IN ARMENIA TOLD BY AN AMERICAN Charles V. Vickrey Gives Facts of Near East Relief Pro- gram for Orphans. Charles Y. Vickrey, general secre- tary of the Near East Relief, hs~ re- turned from a trip of inspeetio~ Ihroughout Central Europe and the Near East, and made a report to th+~ trustees of the Near East Relict tn which he covers in detail the aetua} work of el:did saving now bei~g e~n. dueted by tim great Amerlc, n relief organization in ihe Near East.

Mr. Viekrey considers the need in the Near East and especially in Ar- menla greater titan anywhere else In the world, because, as he says, "In th~ countries of Central Europe there are going governments which have merely been temporarily tmpoveris3~ed by war, In the Near East, ~n the other hand, there Is no such thing as stable gov- ernment. The whole fabric of the state has to be created from the he- ginning, and the innocent and help less children have to be trained to file responsibilities of future citizenship. Peace in the Near East and, in great measure, throughout the world, will depend very largely on the character of th~citizenshlp of the peopl~ of the tNear East." Irre~isUblo Appeal of Orphans, Describing the orphanage work of the Near East. Reilef In the A]'m~nian Republic, ]~Lr. Vickrey said: "'We have at Alexandr~)pol ih the Caue~s~s, one orphanage where fltere are approximately 10,000 hotneless children, fatherle~ or motherless, ~any Of them having no known living relative. ~ome of them do nor even know their own names, or' the place, of their birth. They have shown wonder- fill recuperative powers, and to see them play their kindergarten or other games under rite direction of our Ameri- can relief workers, one oould never be- lieve that they had pa~ed rhraugh the years of suffering that focal of them ha~e experienced since they, or their parents, were driven front titeir home~ in Central Turkey five years ago. "'For the accommodation of those or- phans there are sixty S~l)lendid stone buUdlngs, erected as barracl~s for the Russian army. These buildings are now given to ns by the Armenian gov- ernment for a period of ten years and lend themselves admirably to relief purposes. **Thl~ orpban~tge at Alexandropol is but one of the 229 orphanages that the ~Near Ea~t Relief is now operating in various parts of the Caucasus, Anato- lia, Cilicia, Syria and the O(mstantl- ~ople-Straits area. '~l'hirty miles from Alexandropol, at Kava, there is another group of Rus-: !lan army harraeks, whlcb were given us by the Armenian government for reLief purposes. I was going through the dormitories of this orphanage at Kars when the young American col-t lege ~lrl in charge turned to me and[' mid : 'Mr. Vlekrsy, It sometimes makes ] me feel Just a little older than, Me-[ thuselah to be called Mother hal ~,000 of these Armenian children>] And that is exactly what she was--] the only mother that these. 6,000 Ar- menian children have, except as she avails hersel~ of the organized assist- ance of native Armenian women, In earing for this large family. "'In the hospital at Kars I found 1,150 beds, which, the day I ~ there, were occupied by L268 patients, it frequently being necessary to put two or more children in a single bed. At Alexand~opol we have in one hospital, or $~oup of hospital buildings. 1,560 trachcaxm patlent~. At Karakl/s, forty miles east of Alexandropol we have an orphanage devoted exclusively to the care and training of the blind children. At Dell.lea we have another orphanage, located on a mountain side, for the care of tubercular children, this segregation being as much for the welfare of the healthy children in the orphanages as fat" tie care of the unfortunate consumptives.
