VOLUME XXXVII LAURENS, SOUTH CAROLINA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBL- 30,1 1921. NIRR2
(IREENVILLE READY
FOR SHRINERS
Program (afls for Big Diay for Shrlilv
ers from Upper Part of Cite State
Oreenville will 'be the Mecca for Ali1
Shriners of the tupper part of'the state
Thuri'day of this week when the
Nobles'will gather for the,regular fall
Ceremonial. Laurens Shriners in
large numlberg are already .preparing
to wend their way to -Greenville and
enjoy the program nyhich has been ar
ranged. The .following news item
taken from the Greenville News gives
some idea of what may be expected
that (lay:
Shriners from all over the upper
part of South Carolina will gather in
-Greenville on Thursday of this week to
participate in the celebration which
has been arranged for them by Hejaz
Temple. The program for that day
includes many amusing and entertain
ing events whclh have -been especially
wprepalecd for the visitors. The var
Ois committees are just beginning to
ibreathe easy after the strenuous work
they have gone through in order that
'everything might be in readiness on
Thursday when the visitors arrive.
A letter is being 'prepared to send
'out to the Greenville members of Hejaz
Temple, requesting them to appear
in the Shriners' official garb, that is,
full dress suit and fez, nt the cere
monial on Thursday. On account of
the ceremonial :being held in Green
,ille, the local -members are In a bet
ter position to appear in .full dress
than are many of the visitors who twill
need to ride many miles, over dusty
roads, in automobiles in order to bei
ipresent on the momentous occasion
that will bring them to the city Thurs
day. -Nevertheless, many of them will
come attirefl in the official dress, while
others will don it after their arrival.
Potentate George T. Bryan in speak
Ing of the remarkable showing made
-by Greenville members of Hejaz Tem
Ple at the I last ceremonial, when so
many of them wore full dress In the
parade, stated that. it was his dcir.e
that ij greater number wear the ofli
clal garb on Thursday. Until the last
ceremonial tht order of affairs was
hesitancy in ampearing in full dress be
cause there were so few of them who
did so that they felt conspicuous In
that attire. However, at the spring
ceremonial there order of affair was
changed; there were innumerable
Shriners in dress'suits, and remember
ing what a splendid appearance they
made, it is hoped, in addition to the
Greenville members, that the out of
tow' members and visitors will ask
"friend wife" to hang out the old
sissoirs tail" suit to get- rid of the odor
of moth balls, and send It to the
pressing club and then pack it in a
suit case or grip, ready for the "do
inga" in Greenville on Thursday.
All 'Shriners, as their wive% and
sweethearts will agree, look fihe in
dress suits. They make a "prune" look
like a prince of good fellows. Even If
they are hammered down, 'bok-legigen
dwarfs; or long, lean, lanky bean-polps
with Adam aipples that insist on riding
the tops of their etillars; or of cor
pulant propensity with so-called "ibay
windows" that appear to need a prob
or support, it makes no difference,
they will look good in -their dress
suits when they crown the effect -with
their'fez. The "Hanidsome ~Harry"
types need no urging to vie awith .their
aforementioned brothers in the mat
ter of dress, although, :be it known,
they will attract less attention among
the flair ones of the opiposite sex,- all
-of whom are inclined to lean to and
like something odd and different.
The officials of the TIemple do not
wish the impression to go abroad that
Shrindrs not in full 'dress will'be out
.of place on Thursday. No $hriner is
ever Qut of placo at a Shrine gathering'
if hre can produce the current year's
-Shrine card and spea'k intelligently the
requisiteo Arable anue.The oft

the official garb are urged to get out

ROLL CALL DRIVE
STILL IN PROGRESS
No Let-Up In Campaiig to Secure
embership-lin American Ited Cross.
The annual iRed 'Cross 11011 Clli
which was to have begun Armistice
Day and to have closed Thanksgiving
Day is still in progress in Laurens
county.. Under the direction of -Miss
Margartt Dunlap the campaign for the
Roll Call is making fine progress-Tle
organizaticn for the Roll Call in Lau
rens county iwas not perfected until
the early part -of .lqt week. So far
over three hundred have joined the
Red Cross.
The record of the Red Cross In its
national program alone would cause
miany persone to join this organiza
tio t. The fundametal aim of this or
p.anization is to continue and carry on
a system of national and international
reliefl in time of peace and to aid in
uiffering caused by pestilence, famine,
fIre, fiods and other national calami
ties; and to devise measures.for pre
venting same and to promulgate a ipro
gram .for national health. The Red
Dross membership doll'ar will help to
inake possible the accomplishment of
Its duty, "The union of all who love
in the sereiee of all who suffer."
Not only .thc national record but the
local record of the Red Cross is
worthy of conisderation. During the
p)ast year in Laurens County the R.ed
Dross through its Home Service do
)artment aided hundreds of ex-sqrvice
lien in the county; through the nurs
ng department it hadxmany successful
Jaby campaign' at Laurens, Gray
Jourt, Owings) and 'Clinton; held a
.ubercular clinic at Laurens; exam
ned several thousanad school chil
Iren; and gave visits to many sick
.olk that were in need of medical at
ention. In addition to these definite
hings the Red Cross chapter at Lau
,ens helped to formulate a more defl
lite program of' healti education
hroughout the county.
What, then, is the iprogram of the
Rled Cross for the coming year in Lau
ens county?
First, to continue its association
with the .National organization in its
oiley of assisting in the reconstruc
ion of the devast'ated iworld and aid
ng in making American citizens
xealthier and stronger. To do this It
s neqessary that a number of folk in
Uaurens county join the local Red
3ross and thus let a part of the -money
)e sent to headquarters.
Second, to have a Home Service
worker for a number of months to as
siet the ex-service men in adjusting
heir glaims. During the past month
he Clean-Up Squad was in (Laurens,
)ut necessarily much work was not
,ompleted. 'Recent days have biought
nany ex-service menl to Red Cross
leadquarters for tiis purpose. Some
;hing over three hundred men were
xamined by this squad. and .the con
,lusion is that twenty-five per cent of
hese wvill need additional help. Sbme
lays ago a young man came to the
Red Cross with a claim. This man
!ould neither read nor write. 'He has
eOen due $27.50 per month for tile past
uight months and lIas not received a
~ent. Tihe .Home Service uworker will
e 'asked-to look closely after such cas
s..
Third, to have, a Red Cross nurse for
he county. The past year showed the
work that thia -nurse may do. This
work showed the possible good that re
mults, The Red Cross chapter at Lau
rens feels the need of having a nurse
o assist I'amilies of ex-service men;
:o direct the health programi of the
bunty,, not only amopg the adults but
wmong the children as well; and to co
>perate with other orgahizations in
the state program for bettering the
me'alth facilities ot the state.
'Miss Ma.rgaret 'Dunlap, of Laurens,
zas 'been selected as the Home Ser
vice worker. She will be in her of
act three dlays during the week, Wed
ries.l .y, tJhut'sday iand Friday. This
mfce .will be kept open six months.
r'ho Red Cross chapter feels that al
Ilaims ~for comipensation, hospitaliza
tion, etc., ought to 'be'fully cleared up
by;fthat time.
vIfhe nurse for the coming year has
ztot Been selected. Funds for employ
ngd his nurse, hgve been inadeqiuate.
