THE TIMES Page Five, RED GROSS CMEFTli TO SPEAK James L. Fieser. director of Home Service for Iake Division of the Am erican Red Cross, to be speaker at the Annual meeting of the Hammond chapter on Wednesday evening. Nov. 20. in Liberty Hall. The Hammond Chapter is most for tunate in (fitting this man for a speak er at the one meeting of the year when all members of the. Chapter come together to discuss the work for the year and vote for new directors. Mr. Fieser is one of the foremost or ganizers of the Red Cross work in the. country. Under his direction splendid organization has been butlt up for directing Home Service in the l.ake Division. Home Service is the most vital work that the Red Cross has yet undertaken because it offers an opportunity for most personal con nection with individual soldiers and (ailors of our Army and Navy and with their families. Because some men and women hap pen to be of an age or have certain physical fitness better adapted for mil itary service does not make the re sponsibility of carrying on the war theirs any more than ours who stay home and the least we can do is to protect and comfort in every way pos sible the interest and families of our fighting men. For that reason Home Service must be proffered In the same spirit of self-forgetfulness and gen tune sympathy and understanding friendship in which the soldiers of cur Army and Nwy give their lives ar.d sjrvice to their fellowmen. There is no imaginable form of trou ble cr misfortune where Home Ser . vice does not aim to lend a helping I Land and offer a cheering solution to j t nose who are bearing the brunt of ! the battle. In order that this may be really . helpful and constructive service the Hum,? Eerviee worker requires careful preparation and the study of many subjects. For this reason the Red Cross has Instituted courses for train ing persons to direct this work. Un der Mr. Fieser's direction splendid in stitutes are being held throughout the lake Division . Much work lies be fore us in the rehabilitation of the wounded and shell shocked soldiers who are alread being returned to this country. Mr. Fieser has first hand Informa tion cn the subpect, and all members tf tho Hammond Chapter are urged to co-.re out to this meeting and learn what our part Is in the reconstruction rr'gram. 3oy Scout Column On December first each Scoutmaster will be. asked to furnish a list of all Tenderfoot and second class Scouts whohave not passed a test during the month of November. Such boys will be suspended from Troop, until they pass a test. We are holding instruction regular ly and giving every opportunity In ad dition to that furnished by the va rious Troops and Scouts must do their part if they wish ' to remain in the organization. ( onrt of Honor. There will be a meteing of the Court of Honor next week. Watch for ex act date. All Scouts who wish to take Merit Badge tests or who have completed work for a Merit Badge, t should report to the office and ar range to go before the Court. Drums and Bugle. Thirty drummers and thirty-six buglers were present at the first reg ular class of the Corps at Central school last evening. Twelve members w ere absent which makes a grand to tal of seventy-eight in the Corps at present. Several others have signified their desire to join. We have decided to continue giving terms with a slight change and those who wish to pur chase either bugles or drums consult the Executive. A big bass drum has been ordered and will be on hand as soon as it is lettered." Perhaps some good citisen will present us with a baton. Mr. Barrett Scoutmaster. Mr. Leo Barrett f Grand Rapids. Wis., has taken up residence in Ham mond. Mr. Barrett was formerly a Scoutmaster in Grand Rapids and has already signified his willingness to take a trocp here. We are very glad to welcome him among us as men are very scarce who are willing to give the time to lead our Troops. Pres. Meyer Hunting. LeGrand T. Meyer, president of the Local Council is still in Wyoming, seeking the crafty Rocky Mountain sheep. Judging from pa?t exploits we are of the opinion that the sheep have iittle chance.

CHARLES REED, Scouts and says that there is two feet of snow where he is. w. S. S. We are much disappointed to find that Lake county is practically at the bottom of the list in the. per capita amount of money invested In War Saving Stamps. Most of the Indiana counties have from $15 to $20 per per son. Our average is only $7.40. Scouts should get out at onca and help raise this average. There is a golden opportunity for energetic sales men. We are able to find but two or three men who belong to the "Limit Club." There should be not less than 75 in Hammond. A member of the limit club is a person who has bought the limit allowed by the government 11,000. Do Want to Work.! Any Scout wishing to earn some money after school should report to the office on Monday and Tuesday as soon aii school is out. We have some light work which has been offered bv a gentleman whose son is a Scout and who came to us because he feels that Scouts can be trusted to do as they are told. o Hike Tomorrow.

RED CROSS WORK ' BADLY NEEDED The following letter has been re ceived from Division Headquarters in regard to changes in Red Cross work. "Instructions today received from Washington prescribe that the mak ing of surgical dreslsngs must be stop ped Immediately. Chapters are as sured that there are in the Red Cross storehouses in America and France, ample supplies of surgical dresings to meet all contingencies that may arise. All other forms of chapter produc tion activity must be continued. Calls from Red Cross Commission in many parts of the world make known the unlimited need for civilian relief. The chapters, therefore, should finish at once, uncompleted orders of garments for refugees, so as to be prepared to take care of additional orders. Work on refugee garments at this time is all emergency work and should be stimulated to the utmost. The need for civilian relief for the winter is pressing and one garment now will be infinitely greater service In saving a life thaa many garments in three or four months from now. Surgical dresings workers should be urged to enlist In the work of garment mak ing. Further instructions will follow as the situation develops. The Surgical Dressings room will continue to be open, with the regular Instructions for work In other lines. November 16.

A bystander said that he couldn't un derstand why that aikomobile should be have as it did. It really seemed to have ;i grudge against that passive, slow moving train wholly stdate, staying on its own tracks and minding its own business. Not satisfied with its first Shock, the tuto recoiled and jammed Into the train again. .Fortunately the men escaped injury. The automobile,, however, got paid for its meanness and is badly wrecked. In order to account for and explain Jrt part the erratic action of the car the men were arrested and booked on the charge of being drunk. And in dry terri tory at that. Such inconsistency!
