Moscow, Jan. 5, -- Russia has begun the year 1922 with eight months of unspeakable horror before her and the terrible dread that next summer's crop may only slightly relieve the gnawing famine. At Tsaratsin, Saratoff, Samara, Ufa, Creonburg and Kazan frozen bodies are stacked high awaiting burial in trenches which workmen cannot prepare fast enough and typus and every day the situation is growing worse. American relief workers who originally cautiosly placed the number of probable deaths in the famine area this winter at 2,000,000 now say that 5,000,000 is a low estimate and many say the number may reach 10,000,000 or even more. The Americans are feeding nearly 1,000,000 children and the British and various other organizations are furnishing nourishment for at least 100,000 under the most dangerous conditions. Dr. Reginald Farrar of the Epidemics Commission of the League of Nations; Miss Mary Patterson of the English Quaker Relief Mission: and Dr. Guertner of the German Red Cross have dired within the last week of typhus contracted in the famine area.

Wilson's Fame Lives
It is not always given a former president of the United States to live to see himself glorified in the eyes of the American People, and yet this is the lot of Woodrow Wilson. On the event of his sixty-fifth birthday, former President Wilson had the assurance that his place in the hearts of the American people was as secure as when his administration was at its zenith. The fact is that it was even more so, for the reason that the laudations vouch saved to him at this latter date are unselfed and without the hope of reward other then that of glorifying a man who is entitled to that attitude of friendship that is his from people through the known world. Woodrow Wilson will live in the hearts of the people of the United States and the world, long after those who have villified him have passed into the vast slough of utter forgetfulness. He is one of the great men of the world, and as such wil take a prominent place in history even though some of the self styled analysis have tried to besmirch his name and works. Truly it must be gratifying to the good man that he has lived to see his own worth recognized.--Amarillo News. [Source; Lubbock Avalanche Journal 03 Jan, 1922 image 6. Transcribed by Danielle Swiney]
