HOPE RED GROSS CHAPTER
Movement started on Friday of last week
and membership is increasing rapid
ly. Everyone should help.
A meeting was held at the
City Hall Friday afternoon of
last week for J,he purpose of
organizing a Red Cross Chapter
in Hope. Mrs. Buxton, of Fargo,
was present and in a splendid
talk explained the^' work of the
organization at large and the
duties of the chapters. She dis
played a number of samples of
the work done by the members
and explained their uses, also
why everything must be made
according to specifications. Few
people relize the amount of sup
plies that are required in the
hospitals and she gave the a
mounts of various articles that
are needed in each unit. It is
hoped that Steel county will be
able to supply one unit but in
order to do so a large member
ship will be required as well as
lots of money.
After some discussion the or
ganization was carried through.
Mrs. W. U. White was elected
Chairman, Mrs. R. A. Lathrop,
Vice Chairman, and Mrs. E. J.
Walsh, Secretary and Treasurer.
About thirty members were en
rolled at that time and since
then the membership has iri
cret sed greatly.
