Three hundred and forty five chap Urs in the Lake Division, American Red Cross, embracing Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky, Monday, Dee. 17, begin a Chris tniat Membership Drive to make this slogan a reality by Christ mas Eve. Theee three states have been given quotas aggregating 1,600, 000 members. The objective for the entire United States Is 15,000,000. Differing altogether from recent pa triotic campaigns, the Christmas Membership Drive Is a campaign for people rather than for money. Al though the principal memberships to be sought are the 1 and $1 classes. the real purpose behind the drive la to enroll a huge civilian army to spur the morale of oar soldiers by pledging to the cause the hearts and minds of 15,000,000 Americans back home. William Oanson Rose of Cleveland la directing the drive In these three states for James R. Garfield, former secretary of the Interior and now man ager of the Lake Division. Mr. Rose is giving his services to the Red Cross without compensation and has gath ered a staff of associates, all prom inent In commercial and advertising life. Tbey, too, are giving their time and experience to the Red Cross with out remuneration. House to House Canvass. A house to house canvass will be Instituted In every city, town, village and hamlet. Booths will be erected everywhere. Factories and business houses will be Invaded by canvassers. Flying squadrons will brave bad roads and get Into the rural districts. Every one will have the opportunity "to help bind wounds of our lighters so that every possible drop of American blood may be saved to establish world de mocracy." Present members will not be asked to enroll again, but they will be given the opportunity to' waive the unex pired portion of their memberships and sign up anew for the calendar year of 1918. To every member will go a Red Cross service flag. The flag has a blue border and a white field. In the cen ter Is a Red Cross, indicating that one member of the household, where the flag hangs, belongs to the Red Cross. For each additional member In the household a Red Cross sticker will be given to be fastened in the flag's white field. If every member of the household joins, a white star will be furnished for pasting upon the flag's central cross. "The legion of workers required to enlist this great civilian army will ex ceed any similar force," says Drive Director Rose. "The amount of pub licity of various types used will sur pass that of any previous campaign The purposes of the drive are more comprehensive and far-reaching than those of the earlier campaigns since the inception of the war. "Success means driving home to Germany the faet that the American people are standing firmly behind the American government in the present situation. It means inspiration to our soldiers. It means practical aid on the battlefield. It means uniting the spirit of Christmas with the Red Cross. It means a tremendous drive toward victory."

The ones supplied by the Red Cross are the most prac tical to be obtained.

We Wish You A Merry Christmas, and May Prosperity and Hap piness Be Yours in the Year 1918. TZSCH'S Sawdust was being used to dress wounds in Roumania when a special Red Cross commission reached that country. Upon recommendation of this commission, medicineB, surgical Instruments, hospital supplies, ban dages, bed linen, collodion, wax paper and iodine were shipped to Roumania by the American Red Cross. Later Buffering became, so acute in this un fortunate country that the American Red Cross War Council appropriated $1,518,000 for further relief. ALWAYS READY FOR ACTION. With all its war relief work, the American Red Cross is never caught unprepared for disaster or civilian re lief work. This is illustrated by the fact that relief has been furnished in sixty-four disasters thus far in 1917, exclusive of the help now being given to the sufferers in the Halifax calam ity. A notable example was that of the month of October when help and $125,000 was supplied by the Ameri can Red Cross to the 400,000 flood people made destitute In the flood at Tlm-tsin. China.
