Until the very minute that the armistice was signed, our boys with the Allies, fought their hardest and finished with a brilliant and mem orable record. It is our duty, then, to do as much. In Mrs. Buck's article of Sunday last we learned that the branches will be demobilized on January 31. The same fact was given in a letter to our chairman Mrs. Healy. After this date the work will continue, if necessary, under a central committee composed of Mrs. Buck, her workers and the chairman of all branches and t'his work will be distributed from the New Orleans Red Cross head quarters. Workers are needed in the Surgical Dressings Class to complete about 200 2-A and 500 81-A pads. All workers are urged to do all in their power during these last days. Give three afternoons a week if you can; if you can give one afternoon a week, give that; if you can give but one after noon before demobilization, give that. Make it no less than one afternoon. All those who have worked in this class are expected to give at least one afternoon, to make our final rec ord show the same spirit of 1917 and 1918. All workers in the sewing depart ment are asked to bring in the work as soon as possible. There are still some saeaters due the knitting department, and work ers are urged to bring them as soon as possible. Do something this last month! End with the spirit of April 1917.
