"Representing the Northwestern Division of the American Red Cross I have been visiting the Red Cross Chapters thruout this state and have just had the pleasure of a meeting with the officers and members of your local chapter. 1 wish to say to the people of your community that they have good reasons to be proud of the splendid work that the Chapter lias done and is contintiing to do. It deserves the loyal support of aii your people. The ending of the war does not mean that Red Cross work is to stop. As long as any of our soldiers remain abroad the Red Cross will continue to look after them and hundreds of thous ands of destitute, suffering people in the devastated countries must be cared for until they are able to care for themselves. The Red Cross is taking care of 100,000 destitute •children. In France, Belgium, Ser bia, Rumania, Syria, Armenia, In deed where there is suffering and want the Red Cross is carrying on it's great humanitarian work and the people of this country, to whom a suffering world is looking for help, must not slacken in their work while those stricken people, and particularly, the helpless women and children are suffering for food and clothes and shelter.

Pippinger, of Cavendish, sends the Republican the following inter sting item concerning the experien ces of a Lewiston man. in the. world struggle, and aptly refers to the he roism, pluck and spirit of our Amer ican boys. Sergeant Ralph J. Gregory, age 2 5 years, oldest son of VV. K. Greg ory of Lenore, Idaho, was a member of the First Division Machine Gun Batallion, and who was one of Per shing's veterans, and fought in practically every battle, with the the Americans, on the French front, has the unusual distinction of hav ing had nine distinct citations for bravery, awarded him. Of his experiences in France, Ser geant Gregory says: "We were in tlie Argonne woods seven days with only two meals, which consisted of a little hard tack, dropped to us | from an aeroplane. The region, during the whole time, was swept by terrific shell tire from machine guns, and often we had to crawl over the open space for more than a kilometer to get food. No one can describe our suf ferings, but still we held on." of in to a SAVE YOUR UNIFORM. It has been suggested to the Reg ister by rwit a few people that while it was all right and proper for our returning soldier boys to wear their uniforms for a time, that it would be nice thing if each one, when lie lays it off, would take care of it and keep it in shape to put on again when called upon, some time In the future it is the dream of the fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, wives and friends of these boys to have a .great rally and do honor to the Lewis County boys. Wouldn't it he nice to have them all come in uniform? They could thus be dis tinguished and given the nonor due them. Most of the boys will be home before the summer is gone, and then the rally. Ilo-Vollmer is not going to overlook the fact, that the boys deserve credit for the part they have taken in the world war. —Lewis County Register. of of be the of as be is Ser In and on and and food Church Announcement.
