Sale of Christmas seals in Benton
County last year was $592.29. a rec
ord sale except for 1930 when the
all-time record totaled $656.66. Last
year an increase of 10 percent was
asked for throughout the state. Ben
ton county gained over 40 percent.
This year we hope to go well over
the 10 percent increase again asked.
Since the first Christmas seals
were sold in an Eastern city many
years ago, great strides have been
made in the prevention and control
or tuberculods, the great killer of
the nineteenth century. The mil
lions o! pennies that roll in each
year from the sale or the stamps
have been instrumental in reducing
the appalling death rate that tori
merly was caused by the disease.

' Ask Promptness in Re
turning Contributions;
Some Already In
The Community Chest drive was
started December 11 but a different
method wis followed than has been
the practice in the past. The dif
ficulty in obtaining enthusiastic so
licitors who could give their time
to the work was eliminated by mail-1
t ing letters and subscription blanks
' to the citizens of the community.
The subscription sheet called for the
. names of contributors with the
1 amount donated and a space was
‘. provided for each contributor to
. vote on the question as to whether
’ it was the desire of the community
. to continue the operations of the
Community Chest or not. _
If the present chest activities are
to be continued, the subscriber
should vote “yes"; if not, he should
vote “no." This is practically the
' only method the committee can use
to determine whether their activities
are satisfactory and whether the
methods used are in line with the
desires of the community.
A number of contributions have
already been received but the com
mittee makes an urgent request that
the subscriptions be sent in as soon
as possible so that the committee
can clear up its work before the end
of the year. In some cases where
it is necessary to present the matter
to a group or organization, the time
required may have to be extended.
Only two negative votes have been
received so far on the questionnaires
which have been returned to the
committee, Mr. Siegfried reports.

The Christmas committee, under

is still a need for additional cash
funds. Certain things are needed
that no other agency seems able to
handle and the cash contributions
are to be used in this manner.
