RED CROSS OHAPTED
DOING GOO WORK
Local Chapter has Part' In Nation.
Wide and World-Wide Activities of
The work of the local chapter of
the American Red Cross is receiving
deserved recognition throughout the
Southern Division of the Red Cross,
and at headquarters of thi sorganiza
tion, according to Miss Minnie Rogers
of the Laurens chapter, who this week
returned from a conference In Atlan
ta with workers from all parts of the
"The aggregate of the things ac
complisahed by all the chapters in the
South, since the adoption of the Peace
Time Program of the Red Cross is
surprisingly large, and the reports
which twere made fron all sections of
the South at the conference in Alan
ta were very encouraging" said Miss
"''This cIapter, of course, has a part
in the nation-wide and world-w'ide
work of the Red Cross, and is help
ing to sipport this phase of Ried Cross
work, as it is supporting the work in
(his count3', with which everyone is
familiar. It will be interesting to Red
Cross members to know that dluring
the past year, the contributlions of this
c hapter-to the national work of the or
ganization have helped il relieving
more than thirty thousand victims of
various disasters, fires, floods, torna
does, and 9ther unavoidable disasters,
that it helped provide more than a

ministering to over twenty-six thous
and wvounded men (n the various hos

While Ohe vork being done in this

the iniluence for good of the local Red
