FOR THE LATEST
Red Cross Clippings is the title of
a small paper published in Philadel
phia, to help make the work of the
Pennsylvania division efficient and fur
ther the usefulness of the American
Red Cross in war and civilian relief.
Here are two intensely Interesting
items from Its publication of March 30,
which will make every member of the
American Red Cross proud of this mar
velous organization and more anxious
than ever to work for it :
Home Service Grows.
"Like young David Copperfleld, home
service has 'growed out o knowledge'
since the first of the year. At the end
of January, home service sections In
the Pennsylvania division were giving
help of one kind and another to more
than 2,000 soldiers and sailors' fam
ilies, and at the. end of February the
number of families had increased to
'This Increase in numbers is, in a
way, a measure of the increase of con
fidence In the ability of the Red Cross
to help solve family problems, and it
also shows that the Red Cross is prov
ing worthy of the confidence and reli
ance that soldiers and their families
place in them. The following letter to
the division director of civilian relief
shows how Red Cross home service
workers are helping to keep up the
spirit of the men in the army:
" 'Just a line to let you know that I
received your letter, notifying me that
the Red Cross would look after
my wife and children, which takes a
load off my shoulders and makes me
look at my duties and the future with
a brighter eye, eager to strike the foe
and win, knowing that no matter what
happens my family will not suffer
through my not waiting to be called.
If I had been single I would have been
in it at the start, but I guess there's
lots of fun yet. So thanking yon again
for the promptness yon have shown, I
will close with best wishes to yon and
the work you have undertaken.
M TRIVATE ROBERT DUNCAN.
A Worried Soldier Is a Poor Soldier.
"Soldiers have bodies that get cold;
therefore they need sweaters; they get
hurt or sick, therefore they need surgi
cal dressings; but they have also
minds and hearts that center on the
folks back home; they become anxious
and discouraged about the welfare of
wives, children, mothers, brothers, sis
ters. A worried soldier Is a poor sol
dier,' says General Pershing. The Red
Cross can help to keep up the morale
of the men by protecting and aiding
Hats of Fabric
Fabrics are greatly used by the mil
liners, ana wnole hats, crowns aw
brims are fashioned of georgette crepe
chiffon, satin, tulle or whatever Um
designer happens to fancy. Georgetti
and crepe de chine are, perhaps, more
used than any of the other materials,
always excepting nets and laces, and a
hat entirely covered with crepe and
showing straw only In the facing of
the brim is sometimes untrimmed, save
for a drapery and a knot of the crepe.
Lovely colored silks are used for the
draped toques which are so much In
Black Wheat as Trimming.
A small black tarn of gelatin braid
has the under brim trimmed heavily
in black wheat, and a large pin made
of jet sequins stuck through the side.
In the principal streets of Constan
tinople and other cities Armenian and
Syrian girls are being sold as slaves
for a few dollars because their Turkish
masters are no longer able to feed
Germany will never come into the
society of free nations until it has
something to celebrate, like the fall of
the Bastile or the Declaration of Inde
pendence. Chicago Daily News-
Every Dollar Spent at Home Acts Either Directly
I Indirectly to YOUR Benefit
sj Perhaps you own a business of your own here-a store, a garage, a hotel, a plumbing shop
H A dollar spent with any one of these has a ten-to-one chance of being passed along to some one in
H Mohave county.
s Perhaps you are working on a salary for any one of these-What helps your employer helps you.
H Perhaps you are a county official-You help someone to pay taxes which go to pay your salary.
H Perhaps you are a property owner-The more money spent at home, the better your town will
H be and the more your property will be worth.
H Every dollar spent at home helps some one. How long COULD YOU live here or how long
H would you WANT to live here if everybody sent their dollars out of town? How long would your
H town continue to be an agreeable place to live in?
H Before you send that order away take it to your local merchant and let him
j figure with you. Surely, that is not asking much.
If lie can give you goods at the same price as you would pay lor the
same quality elsewhere, why not keep your money in Mohave county?
