Before prohibition there were
142 booze cure institutions scat
tered over the country. All but six
teen have gone out of business,
and yet some people still insist
that prohibition don’t prohibit,
and that just as much liquot is
consumed these days as ever.
Of course it may be because the
present day liquor kills before
there is an opportunity to try one
of the cures.
Don’t knock if you see an en
terprise start up. Give the young

made of the right material it will
thrive in spite of knocks. After
all knocks do not amount to much

Red Cross Membership Drive
After the war there were con
siderable funds held by the local
chapter of Red Cross which
would have been absorbed by the
national headquarters had they
not been used for home service.
The local executive committee
has worked and planned as the
best service to the most people
the combination rest room and
library now in the court house.
This room now giving good ser
vice was furnished every cent of
it by the Red Cross.
For two years the local chapter
has refrnined from putting on a
Roll Call drive for membership
because they had nothing to
show the people for money col
lected. but now that through
their efforts and Red Cross funds
the rest room and library service
is established. They are going
to ask for financial support, they
are not going to ask for donations
nor large sums cf money but
just that each and every person
become a member of this local
chapter which is doing this work
for the community and such
membership costs just exactly
one dollar. May we not have
your support for this much? The
date of the drive will be Saturday
November 18th, in the meantime
examine the work being done
and if you have not used the ser
vice offered by the rest room and
library by all means do, it was
planned and accomplished for
you make use of it and support it.
