MORROWTOWN NEWS. Fine Community Meeting.

Three heroic figures of Nezperce, Miss Wilson, Miss Near, ami Mr. Wade, plow ed through* twenty-five miles of snow drifts in order to participate at the meeting.

At noon the ladies prepared a bount iful dinner which w as relished by the hungry assemblage. In the afternoon Miss Wilson gave a splendid talk to the hoys and girls, telling them the way to become good citizens. Children should be in good health in order to grow- up as strong men and w-omen ; they should learn all they can so as to be ready for life's duties ; they should strive to save —a spendthrift is not considered a good citizen. Miss Near spoke of the boys and girls' clubs, stating that the work for 1919 was nearly com pleted, and that achievement pins w^ill be awarded to each mem ber who has finished the course.

Should Prove Conclusive Argu ment for Making Lewiston District Membership 10 , 000 . When the citizens of Idaho, Lewis and Nez Perce counties give their dollars for membership in the' Red Cross, it must not be forgotten that several thousands of these, membership dollars will be spent in these three counties during 1920. In the first place, the splendid Public Health program now being started by the Red Cross will soon be under way in the Lewiston Chapter. Two nurses have already been engaged, and in addition to this public health work, the Chap ter has employed a graduate nurse for each of the three counties to give instruction in Home Hygiene and care of the sick. Every com munity in the chapter jurisdiction will have this wonderful oppor tunity to better public and indivi dual health conditions, at no ex pense to those taking the courses. Your membership dollars help pay for this greatly needed work. Another branch of Red Cross activity now- being conducted by the Lewiston Chapter in behalf of returned service men of the three counties, is the Home Service Sec tion. Your Dollars Aid in Home Ser vice. Up to the present time the Home Service Section of the Lew iston Chapter has attended to over 400 cases of soldiers and sail ors in Lewis, Idaho and Nez Perce counties. 88 bf these men were disabled in some manner, and are receiving special atten tion. Ten of them are tubercular ; fourteen have received treatment in hospitals; many have received financial aid for their families. In all these cases the Lewiston Red Cross Chapter has supple mented and aided the government in every possible way. A trained secretary is employed to give as sistance in all cases of need. The Secretary keeps in touch with all service men who have needed ad vice or aid, and with all families in sipiilar need. This work is supported entirely by your Red Cross dollars and will continue until the last man returns home from service, or from the hospi tals. The Red Cross Canteen. numbers arc dw-indlinlg gradually, eight, ten, twelve or more service men are returning each week, and are be ing met at the train by a uniform ed canteen worker. Until the last boy returns Lewiston Chapter will see that the returning men are eared for and all their needs satisfied, when they reach Lewis ton to stay, or pass through to their homes in the three counties. The Junior Red Cross is another of the branches of work that is be ing continued with greater em phasis than ever. There are al most 3,000 junior workers in the three counties. These are some of the reasons have a special interest in seeing the 10,000 membership mark reached. We want to know that all the advantages of the Ameri can Red Cross may be available to our people now, as well as in the time of great emergency, such as we experienced in the influenza epidemic of last year, Idaho, Nez Perce and Lewis counties have 8,800 members of t he American Red Cross, MAKE IT 10,000.
