PEOPLE EXPECI PO CONTRIBUTE MUCH MORE THAN THE TOWN HAS BEEN ASKED TO DO SYSTEMATIC WORK DONE TO MAKE DRIVE BIG SUCCESS Leading Business Men Taking Active Part In Conducting the Campaign— Live News From Municipality East Of Us. KIMBF1RLY, Juno 18—Kimberly is conducting the big Red Cross drive planned last week. Twenty-three men volunteered their undivided ser vices for this occasion, and will work incessantly for the cause until Kim berly has contributed at least fifty per cent more than the amount as sessed It. Through the efforts of R. H. Den ton and his co-workers a crowd of Kimberly business men met at the Gem State Lumber company office Friday night and listened to the Red Cross program as it is to be worked out in the United States during the week beginning yesterday. L. L. Breckenridge and E. L. MacVicar of Twin Falla presented the propaganda, and showed to the business men of this city, the real situation of the United States in the present war crisis, as they had never realized It before, and explained to them the tremendous importance of the Red Cross work. So impressed, were those who lis tened to these addresses, that before the meeting was adjourned, the men began to gather in small groups and talk about their respective duties in this Importance. They talked In hun dreds and fifties, and not in tens and fives as heretofore. The citizens of Kimberly have a feeling about this matter that runs near intense pa triotism: patriotism coupled with de termination and movement. R. H. Denton, local executive chair man. and campaign manager, remark ed today after conversing with nearly every man In town, that Kimberly would undoubtedly raise two thous and dollars for this cause, and that has been accepted as the present aim. The leading business men of the city comprise the number who have volunteered to carry on this cam paign. Aside from R. H. Denton, who will manage the campaign, twenty men have been chosen to take part in raising this money. Those twenty are divided into four teams, as fol lows; W. P. Breckon. captain of team No. 1, composed of W. P. Swear* Ingen, James Halfrey, W. S. Martin, and Lee Stettier; L. H. Walden, cap tain of team No. 2, composed of B. H. Atkinson. A. ' J. Wilson, George Bremer, H. W. Mund; J. W. Harden, captain of team No. 3, composed of Garl Ridgeway, B. F. Train. Charles Lamon, W. A. Gill; R. C. Wilson, cap tain of Team No. 4, composed of W. A. Stowe, N. W. Swearingen, Charles Upton, P. D. Johnson. Rev. A. W. James will compose a committee of one for the obtaining and management of the campaign speakers: and V. G. Backman has charge of the publicity work. The above named men met togeth er tonight and planned the Campaign, which commenced in full blast Tues day morning and will last until the work is all completed. "Two thous and dollars from Kimberly" Is the land mark and slogan of the cam paign. SALARY DID NOT JIBE AYITH IN DI8PEN SIB1LITY LONDON.
