TUESDAY, JUKE 26, 1917 OFFICIAL CITY *ND COUNTY PAPER. Published weekly and entered at the Post Office at Wausau as second class matter. CAMPAIGN FOR RED CROSS Marathon County Did Its’ Share Dur ing Week of June 18-25—Our Contribution Being About $39,300. Onr Contribution Being The rapid growth of the Red Cross since the declaration of war and the extension of its activities to all parts of the nation are a remarkable ex pression of popular desire to render definite service to the nation in its war need. Red Cross Activities The past week was known as Red Cross Week, and various activities were held to bring about the raising of the $100,000,000, which the National War Council asked for Red Cross work. Dancing parties, moving pic tures, etc., were included in the ac tivities throughout our country to bring about the required amount stated above. Rousing Meeting On last Tuesday evening an enthus iastic meeting in support of the Red Cross movement was held in this city at the guild hall of St. John’s church. The meeting opened with a dinner served to about one hundred business and professional men of this city and vicinity. Following the dinner Judge Louis Marchetti, chairman of the special campaign committee in charge of Mar athon county’s contribution to the Red Cross fund, called the meeting to or der, and introduced C. J. Winton of Minneapolis, formerly of this city, who gave an earnest and eloquent speech and explained the needs of the situa tion and told the gathering of a simi lar meeing held recently in the city of Minneapolis. Mr. Winton failed to men tion his donation of $5,000 to the Red Cross fund at the Minneapolis meet ing, but it leaked out afterward. He also made a contribution to the local fund. This rousing meeting was held for the purpose of outlining a financial plan whereby Marathon county could furnish the stipulated amount expect ed and to prepare for a strenuous campaign. Stirring talks were given on the raising of the $35,000, our county’s share, to bring the Marathon county detachment up to the stand ard. Appeals were made to stand back of the movement. The enthusi astic way in which our county went into the campaign speaks well for the success of the Red Cross week and the permanent support of the work of the Marathon county chapter. Dr. A. W. Trevitt gave a history of the Red Cross in a brief way, going back to the very beginning of the first organization in 1863. Among the speakers of the evening were C. C. Yawkey, Walter Alexander, E. P. Gorman, W. H. Bissell, C. B. Bird, M. C. Ewing, E. A. Gooding, F. J. DeVoe, L. A. Pradt, Rev. John Lloyd, Rev. E. C. Grauer, Rev. Rich ard Evans, Rev. O. V. Wheeler and Judge A. H. Reid. Before the meeting was over $28,- 560.00 had been pledged for the American Red Cross fund, which is enough said. Among the donations in the thous ands are the following: C. C. Yawkey $5,000.00 Walter Alexander 5,000.00 D. L. Plumer 5,000.00 W. H. Bissell 2,000.00 Brown, Pradt & Gilbert 1,500.00 F. P. Stone 1,000.00 B. Heinemann Lbr. Cos. 1,000.00 Louis Dessert 1,000.00 Kreutzer & Bird 1,000.00 George E. Foster 1,000.00 Our neighboring towns donated gen erously to the Red Cross fund. During the week a large number of the men present at this meeting gave much of their time to soliciting subscriptions in the city and visited the towns in the county. The campaign committee included: Judge Louis Marchetti. chairman, S. B. Tobey, secretary; C. S. Gilbert treasurer; E. P. Gorman and G. B. Heinemann. During the Tuesday night meeting Judge Marchetti gave the following toast: “The American Red Cross. It appeals to us In behalf of our soldiers who offer life on the altar of our country. It shall not appeal in vain to the American heart.” Pershing Day Yesterday was “Pershing Day.” The day was celebrated nationally in hon or of the head of the American forces in France. Last Day esterday Wausau and Marathon county entered the last lap of the Red Cross campaign", having reached the amount of $34,321.50 Saturday even ing. \ esterday was the last opportun ity to show the young men of our country, who are preparing to leave for the trenches in France that we fully appreciate, what they are doing and the sacrifices they are making.

The facts are gradually coming to light, but it is hard to tell just now what prompted Miss Lusk to do the shooting. The completion of the Forest street and Grand avenue pavement would have been accomplished last '"’dnes day but for the shortage in brick. Another car is expected within a few days. The only portion of the pave ment still incomplete is the intersec tion of Grand avenue and Lemke street, and after the arrival of the brick it will only require about one day to complete this. Mr. Lotz, who has been in charge of the work is to be commended both on the character of the work and the length of time re quired to do it. A film of navy pictures and life has been received in the city and will be shown at the local theaters this week. It is hoped that this will stir a bit of enthusiasm and lead to a greater enlistment. Despite the draft it must be remembered that enlisting is not a past number. Voluntary of fering of service is yet necessary and desirable. The navy offers an ex cellent opportunity and certainly it is one of the finest services in which young men of today can associate themselves for the welfare of their country.

As soon as weather conditions permit, th.i work will be pushed with all possi ble speed.

Company G is short 30 for its full strength. t % Enlistments in these two branches or in the Navy before July first count on our future draft quota. After that they do not. Those enlisting now get the start in training and have a better chance for promotion. Men in Uncle Sam’s service are the best cared for of any men in the country. Uncle Sam makes a specialty of caring for its men, protecting them from diseases, giving them wholesome food and healthy living, he makes whole men of them so they can do a mans job for their country. Enlistments may be for this war only. When one enlists from a family that is considered by the exemption board if others from the family are afterwards drafted.
