V) RED ( ROHM FUNDS -—— In some maimer the report has become general that (he local Red Cross chapter were to assist in Ihe building of the proposed hospital. Such is not the cast« and If the officers of the local chapter were in favor of such a move they could not do so as the following article sent to the ecutlve officers here from the. Gen eral Manager of the Naf'i Red Cross makes plain the fact Ihtil Red Cross fund* are not to be used for pernttt ,* nit building, etc. ex We wish to emphasize to chapter executives that It Is nol proper to make use of chapter funds for build-1 log or helping to finance hospitals, convalescent bouses or other permu uenl Institutions. It la also contrary to the policy of national headquarl-l ers to have chapters make coutribu lions to other relief orgagnizatlons. The funds of the Red Cross are In no sense for permanent buildings or endowments. They are gathered to carry out a program of service thru Red Cross agencies. Particularly 1* must be remembered that the Red Cross must always be ready to mar shal social reserves In lime of dis aster. The use of a fund of this nat ure for brick and mortar is not con sistent. There is an exception in the case of structures necessary to care for our soldiers and sailors. Ever. In time of disaster. It is the Judgment of the officials of the Red Cross that actual reconstruction should be a re sponsiblllty of the communities and that the Red Cross purpose should be to meet the immediate situation.
