Red Cross Aids In Flood Region

Representatives Come Here To Visit Towns Along Potomac.

Representatives of the American Red Cross from Washington arrived here this morning to extend relief to persons in the towns beleaguered by the Potomac flood. Local Red Cross workers co-operated with the representatives, who endeavored to reach Cumberland as one of the first points of contact, but owing to conditions in that section it was doubtful if they could get to the stricken town.

The workers will stop at Hancock, where many families were driven from their homes, and also visited Williamsport to canvass conditions there. A number of families in parts of the town along the river and Conococheague Creek were forced to leave their homes.

The Red Cross, it was stated, is prepared to give aid of any kind wherever it is needed.
