employed at the Ford Plate Glass

savi&g their lives.
Both were hurried to the Rhein-

serious are exceedingly painful.

and refreshments will be enjoyed.
Do not forget the date.
The next regular business meet
ing of the Red Cross auxiliary will
be held at the Civic rooms, Mon
day, May 5, 1919. Matters of im
portance will be discussed and it is
hoped all members will be present.
A number of ladies of Perrys
burg have sent in their names and

Red Cross, which entitles them to
a service medal.
During our struggle with the
"Hun" it has been the duty of
every woman to devote what time
she could to Red Cross work to re
lieve suffering, just as much as to
send our noble boys to the front to
fight for us. The wearing of a
Red Cross service medal will be
deemed just as much of an honor
as the wearing of a service "pin
worn by the war mothers. T!?
medals are given for 200, 350, 800
and 1,600 hours work respectively.
