NEWS FROM BROTHERS IN
Mrs. Thos. Newman of 419 Diana

her brothers in France saying that her
brother. Sergeant Michael J. Collins
who was severely wounded at Ypres
on December 26, 1917, and later
gassed in France, it now in a sani
tarium in England suffering from gas
poisoning. When he recovers he in
tends to visit New Orleans.
Mrs. Newman's other three brothers
spent four years at the firing line.
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
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
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
