Miss Bisseil persuaded the Ameri can Red Cross to take up the idea with the result that seals were sold ma ot communities in 1908. The sale yielded a revenue of approximately $3,000. The Red Cross j then decided to issue the seals each year and to turn the proceeds over to the National Tuberculosis association , and its affillate d societies for the pur- t pose of financing the campaign against tuberculosis. The number of seals sold In America increased by leaps and bounds until in 1917 the total . . , 0 „AnnnAA reached 180,000,000. This year the seals are again on beginning December 1.
