THE RED CROSS ROLL CALL
The purpose of the Red Cross roll
tall is to enroll, a large number of new
members and renew the old ones for the
purpose of raising money to carry on the
health wnik in this county. The work
of the Red Cross in this county in peace
times is only hazily understood. Most
persons have a general idea of what the
Red Cross Is doing but the concrete
work of the organization is no; knwon.
"There has been Red Cross public
bcallb nurse in this county for some
time. Her work at present is confined
mostly to the schools in the county.
This is a work which is vitally important
' to the; health of the school children.
; In the examinations -which have been
conducted thus far many of the school
children have 'been found in need of
-medical attention. The Red Cross curse
notifies the parents of the child that i
certain kind of attention is needed and in
most cases the parents respond with the
suggested treatment. --
IfcThe money which will be raised in tie
coming roll call will be spent for this
work 'and --also for carrying on public
hcsluV wotk in Columbia. It is a ittl
atcrssity toa community to hive such

THE OPEN COLUMN
THE RESULT OF THE ELECTION
Editor Tke MissonrUn: Harding has
been elected President of the United
States..- .Before the election this would
hate been hailed by some as a calamity,
by others the dawn of the millenium.
Now the election is over. One party has
won. We. can. count upon American
sportsmanship to forget the unpleasant
things that hare occured, the bittter
things that hare been said, and settle
dawn as one people to the tasks before
us. A president ha been elected. Wc
ran eipect him to give his best.
