Striking New Red Cross Poster
Riveting the attention of the beholder on the fact that the Ameri
can Red Cross is chaitered by Congress as an official volunteer relief
organization the dome of tho Capitol at Washington, upon which is super
imposed a large Red Cros,s, is the central figure of a new poster for the
Annual Red Cross Roll Call. The poster, which has been pronounced one
of the most striking of innumerable representations of the famous dome,
is the work of Franklin Booth, a New York artist of wide renown. It will
be displayed throughout the country during the Roll Call period, Armistice
Day to Thanksgiving, when the Red Cros membership for 1923 will be

The manner In which the Red Cross
undertakes these disasters depends

some cases the local chapters and citl

ftUANTITIES OF WINE
will be vastly superior to the cotlln
varnish the bootleggers handle at
great profit and little risk.
Jelfcr&on City, Mo., October 17.
The scarcity of empty barrels and
kegs some weeks ago in this part of
the state is now fully explained. A
great many people bave been engag
ed in gathering the large crop of wild
grapes and making homemade wine
for winter use. Along the streams
in the central part of the state wild
grapes grow in immense quantities,
and in the past the people left them
to the birds and small wild animals
fond of such food. Here and there
someone would gather a small quan
tity for making wine, and, although
wine made from wild grajies was al
ways said to be of excellent quality,
very few cared to go to the trouble
of getting their wine in that way.
Moreover, with the exception of a
few counties, Missouri has never
been much on using wine of any
kind, a majority of those with a lean
ing to alcoholic drinks preferring
Early this fall a great many peo
ple in this part of the state, includ
ing those living in tho cities, decid
ed to make their own wine. "Wild
grapes cost nothing but the pick
ing, and usually large quantities of
them went to waste. There was a
rush for kegs and barrels early in
the season suitable for holding wine,
and in a very short time the supply
was entirely exhausted, something
that has never happened in the past.
All kinds of vessels were pressed Into
service, and dealers sent for large
shipments of empty barrels and kegs
direct to the manufacturers.
rresuniably the trade has been sup
plied, and for once few of these
grapes will go to waste. Tho birds
and little wild animals may ho short
on this kind of feed, but the men
who huve discovered a consuming
thirst for wild-grape wine will have
their appetites satisfied, and at a
very small cost. Some of these
grapes are to be found in the tops
of tall trees, and thebo have been left
for the birds and animals, but for the
most part they are to be found near
the streams or lakes, on bushes and
can be reached without a great deal
What the attitude of tho prohibi
tion enforcement officers will be to
wards this new method of evading
prohibition is not known at the
present time. Perhaps they are
waiting until the wine ferments
and becomes palatable. At present
thero is no sort of doubt that they
have much more than they can do in
trying to make life a burden to the
bootleggers and moonshiners in this
part of the State,few of whom have
come under the heel of the law. It
is said that those who have provided
themselves with largo quantities of
wild grape wlno will not engage In
the bootlegging business, although it
