LAURA F. PREUETT, Executrix of the estate of James A. Preuett, deceased. Red Cross Roll Call. Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 7. On the eve of the National Convention of the American Red Cross, which opens at Washington Monday with delegates from chapters in all parts of the country attending, National Head quarters announces through Harry L. Hopkins, manager of the Southern Division, that a preliminary survey in relation to the Annual Roll Call indicates that the present more than 4,000,000 membership enrollment of the Red Cross will be maintained for 1923. From reports sent in by the six divisions of the organization it is forecast that there will be a wide spread revival of the war-time en- thusiasm for enrollment of members and that hundreds of volunteer work ers of the war years, when there was built up the largest membership ever gathered into such an organization in the world's history, are coming back into the work, giving their service to continue in -.peace the achievements of the American Red Cross in war. The Southern Division will show a membership strength of 200,000 and more when all reports are in, Mr. Hopkins predicted to-day. Field rep resentatives of the Red Cross report that many chapters which did splen did war work are coming back into the work with renewed vigor. States in the Southern Division are Alaba ma, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mis sissippi, North and South Carolina and Tennessee. The Roll Call, which vill begin Armistice Day, November 11, and close with Thanksgiving Day, No vember 30, will marshal forces throughout the world under the slo gan, Every American Everywhere a Member of the Red Cross." Under the leadership of John Barton Payno, Chairman of the American Red Cross, it is to be an intensive campaign from start to finish, that the organ ization may maintain its strength to carry out the obligations laid upon it by its Congressional charter. The direct appeal for members is to be made for support of workers in homes and in hospitals for disabled ex-service men and theiT families, for which some $10,000,000 will be spent this year in work the govern ment is not authorized to uo and for which no government funds are available. This work Is going on in virtually very community in the United States, through individual and sympathetic contact with the veterans by Chapter workers. Three other important duties are' also emphasized in the Red Cross program of activities public health nursing service for rural communi ties where adequate health facilities are lacking; preparedness for relief in disaster, famine, flood, epidemic; and the work of the Junior Red Cross at home and abroad in building up among children everywhere a spirit of mutual trust and confidence and the will for unselfish service. These are the outstanding Red Cross serv ices in a program which includes widespread instruction in Home Hy giene and Care cf the Sick, in Nu- First Aid, water life saving, produc tion of Braille for the blind and the vast production of clothing for the needy at home and overseas by Chap ter volunteers. A new field of action in the ap proaching campaign vill be a Roll Call on the high seas designed to reg ister members on every ship afloat or in the ports of the world in which merchant marine companies and ship captains have been enlisted and the co-operation of the U. S. Navy De partment obtained. The campaign in the insular possessions and in foreign Chapters is also definitely planned with the view of increasing ttye en rollment. , , In joining the Bed Cross this year the new member, as well as the old member renewing his membership will receive a certificate of member ship designed to fit a purse or card case in addition to the white button bearing the symbolic cross in red This certificate is the stub of a filing card adopted by the Red Cross for tho first complete system of registra tion of members in all the 3,200 act ive Chapters. Tho cards containing names, addresres and classes of mem bership will be retained as perma nent records by the Chapters and as lists whereby it vill be possible in the future for the Red Cross to keep in touch with its members for all emergencies, whether local, State or national. A series of posters impressively visualizing the work of the American Red CCross have been designed by well known artists and these will be displayed in every nook and corner of the country. A special poster has alsa been designed for use by h.a Chapters overseas. A Red Cross worker's badge, new in this cam paign, will identify the solicitors In the Roll Call. The outlook for an increase in mem bership, it was unanimously agreed at a recent conference of Red Cross division managers at Washington, is extremely bright because of the pros pect of improved commercial and ia dustrial conditions everywhere and because the public at lirge is now better informed as to tho peace time obligations the Red Cross is carrying out. The keynote among the Chapters is organization for the most efficient enrollment ever recorded by the Red Cross, many of the Chapters adopting the residential canvass plan by vol unteer workers which in numerous cities last year proved successful in adding thousands of members to the roll call. The members of the American Red Cross are modern minute men and women, the greatest proved reserve for relief the world has ever seen. In the Roll- Call task the Chapters have pledged themselves to maintain this reserve at its highest possible level. The following article appeared-in the Chicago Tribune Sept. 27, last "Four leaders of the Glass Casket Corporation, alleged $1,500,000 mail swindlers, were trapped yesterday in a room at 100 North Clark street Although they have been sought in every state for the last eight months they were boldly establishing head quarters at the Clark-street address, one of the loop's newest skyscrapers, "The men taken Into custody by postal inspectors and United States deputy marshals are Samuel .

"When locked up at the Federal building all of the men professed in nocence and asked permission to call upon some 'millionaire business asso ciates for bond.' The request was granted but the men called upon turned deaf ears, deputy marshals said.

Hickman, Ky., Oct. 7. The trial of Ruby Jimerson, charged with the murder of Deputy Sheriff Chas A. Murchison, which has attracted wide attention here, vill not be car ried through but continued to the January term of Circuit Court. This was due to the fact that Judge W. H. Hester, Circuit Judge, vacated the bench on account of the close friendship he had for the deau man, and by the time another judge was procured to try the case, there was not enough time left this week for Gov. Morrow to make the appoint ment and try the case, and as this is the last week of this term, the case will have to be continued. All Judges in this end of the State were busy and there was some diffi culty in finding a Judge at this time as court is in session in almost ev ery district. Court will adjourn here to-morrow after a very busy and in teresting term. Many lawyers from Western Kentucky towns have been in attendance, the best legal talent of several neighboring towns being employed in the several murder trials held during this three weeks' term.
