RUSSIAN WAR RELIEF, which is sending American medical textbooks to Russian schools training surgeons and doctors for the front lines, has issued a new appeal for contributions of medical literature. The appeal was in response to requests from the Russian Society for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries. Russian officials point out that many Soviet schools of medicine were evacuated thousands of miles to Central Asia and the Urals from Kharkov, Kiev and other occupied cities. In most cases libraries had to be left behind. The Kiev Medical Institute, cited as one example, was moved to Chelyabinsk in the Urals, 1,300 miles away. The Kharkov Medical Institute, whose faculty and student body were evacuated as the Reichswehr battered at the city's gates, is now at Chkalov, on the Ural River. Many of the books sent from America to these and other medical schools were contributed by doctors and medical associations from all parts of the United States. They range in subject from child development to neuroses in war. Inquiries or gifts of medical books should be sent to Russian War Relief, Inc., 11 East 35 Street, New York 16, N. Y. A complete list of the books needed in the Soviet Union will be sent upon request. Donors may attach to their contributed books notes which will be forwarded to Russian medical libraries receiving the books.
