$20 Million to Help the Starving and Distressed in Russia, 1921

From the editorial page of the Rockingham Post-Dispatch, Dec. 22, 1921.

Congress Tuesday passed a measure appropriating $20,000,000 for the relief of the starving and distressed in Russia. This will be spent to buy wheat in America to be transported at once to the famine districts of Russia part for food and part for seed. A splendid Christmas gift from this great country to a people who are literally down and out.
