BEG YOUR PARDON

In THE TRIBUNE last Sunday Miss Jane Addams was quoted to the effect that conditions in Germany have improved to such an extent in the last two years that the country now is able to feed the entire population without American aid. Miss Addams states she was misquoted. The impression she intended to convey was “that the American Friends Service committee was gradually withdrawing its personnel from Germany because the actual distribution was being efficiently taken over by the German relief agencies, but that there was pressing need for supplies of food and clothing if the German children were to maintain a proper standard of nutrition.”
