The Red Cross Chapter to Disband
The Japan Chapter of the American Red Cross will be dissolved soon, according to a decision made at a meeting of the executive committee in Tokyo, March 18. The American ambassador, Mr. Edgar A. Bancroft, presided over the meeting as honorary chairman. Among others who attended were Major Philip Faymonville, military attaché, Prof. John T. Swift, Mr. John R. Geary and Prof. Ernest Clement. A resolution suggested by Professor Swift to the effect that the remainder of the funds, amounting to about $7,500, should be turned over to the Yokohama General Hospital to aid in its campaign for the reconstruction of the building which was destroyed in the earthquake, instead of being given to the American association for a general relief distribution, was adopted. The passing of the chapter will cause deep regret to many Americans in Japan. Word was received late last year
