(Miss), of Louisville, Ky., started on November 10, 1920, for Constantinople where she was made Director of the Industrial Department. She did a service to both Armenians and Ottoman Greeks in keeping alive many of the traditional stitches and patterns in embroidery and weaving such as those of Demirdash and Broussa. She installed the weaving department at Ismid. Under her management thousands of refugee women have made a living for themselves and their children by their handiwork. Miss Sheltman reached the States December 21, 1923, and is now in Louisville, Ky. (2227 Alta Avenue), where she is speaking in behalf of Near East Relief.
