kind, and to the universities and schools. Thus we
shall endeavour, on a very modest scale, to par
ticipate in the economic restoration of the country.
What we really feel is that it is not enough
temporarily to snatch the starving populations of
the Volga valley and Southern Ukraine out of
the jaws of death ; one must not desert them , before
providing them with the means to till their soil,
and to manage by themselves. True humanity
does not give merely tempprary aid to stop the
disease for a season, but seeks to help the patient
right through, and does not give hiin up until
he has regained his health and is able to resume
his ordinary life. In order to carry out this
programme of help for the population in the
Russian famine districts considerable funds are
necessary. We ourselves have not got them, un
fortunately, but we are trying, by means of a
concrete example, to show the way which we believe
to be the right one.
