The last speaker was Rev. F. H.
Oehler, the new rectcr of St. Mark's
Episcopal church of our city. He
made a strong address, speaking of the
great things that are at stake in this
big world conflict and of the great
principles, political, social and spirit
ual which the United States is deter
mined to preserve for humanity, and
for which these young men are now
going to flight. He said that the is
sues of the struggle are new more
clarified than at the outset of the war
and that they have finally resolved
themselves to the proposition whether
the golden rule and the teachings of
Christ are to survive or the doctrine
of force and might prevail. Rev.
Oehler, like Gov. Rice, referred to an
only son in the army.
After the speeches were over the
drafted men returned to the court
house grounds where they visited with
their folks until train time. They
marched to the train in a body, Elmer
Engvall carrying the flag. A big

Red Cross Campaign to be Opened
With Big Demonstration.
The: next drive for the American
Red Cress fund will begin May 20th.
Plans are now being made for the
opening of this campaign with a big
patriotic parade to be held at Willmar
en Saturday, May 18th in accordance
with instruction from National head
quarters. The Committee deemed it
not practical to hold parades' in each
of the villages in the county but
rather combine all the Branches into
one big effort at the county seat.
All the Red Cross Branches and
Auxiliaries are expected to take part
and all the bands of the county,
schools, farm, clubs, societies and or
ganizations are asked to contribute
in one way or another to make the
affair a rousing occasion.
There will be a prominent speaker
and a good program after the parade.
Eben E. Lawson of Willmar has
been appointed parade manager and
will answer questions, and give such
help as he can to all interested.
