RED CROSS NOTES. *
By G. L. louk, *
Chairman of 'Pubi icity. *
" * * * * * . . . .. . .
The interest in the work of the Red
ros which has been so evident in
he county for.the past several months
ias In no wise diminished although it
i erhaps not. so evident as at cer
aln times in the past. This is especial
y shown by the work of the commit
ce on extension which has succeeded
n organizing two auxiliaries in the
>ast two weeks. The first of these
vas organized at Prospect and was
toted in this column last week. Since
hat time another has been organized,
his time at Ora. Rev. S. 11. Temple
nan, chairman of the extension coin
nittee organized this auxiliary last
l'uesday night, .Jan. 29. A total of 22
nembers have enrolled.
It has been noted by the officers of
he local chapter that very few of the
nembers are subscribers of the Red
Dross 'lagazine. This is to be es
)ecially regretted as the value of this
nagazine to Ied Cross membership is
)bvious. It is your nmagazine and is
mndeavoring to tell by pictures, stories
tnd articles how your money Is being
,pent and how your bandages and
sweaters are fighting off disease and
leath. 'Th'is splendid publication
should he in every home. All mem
mrs of the cled Cross are entitled to
'eceive it for one year on payment of
me dollar in addition to their annual
lues. I[andi your dollar to any mem
ier of the exceltihe Committee 111d
