The St. Johns Herald St. Johns is having a healthy substantial growth. Lands are cheap but rapidly increasing in value. Best climate on earth. ST. JOHNS, APACHE COUNTY, ARIZONA, AUGUST 30, 1917 NO. 1 VOLUME 34 RED CROSS 'Their appears to be a general 3ack of interest in Red Cross work in St. Johns. While I know that it has been a busy season thus far in taking care of the fruit and vegetables, yet it seems to me that the need of making arti cles for use in the hospitals and an the field has been forgotten. There has been a call to the Red Cross from Major Grayson M. P. ,Murphy, who is the Red Cross commissioner for Europe, for 1,500,000 knitted sets comprising sweater, muffler, wristlets and socks. The St. Johns Branch has been called upon by the director ,of the Pacific Division to do some of this knitting, directions for which we will soon have. This is a rush order and our men are going to need these things before very long. An ord er for materials, directions and patterns has been placed with the Winslow Chapter and I hope that St. Johns will wake up and en deavor to do its part, though mall perhaps, toward helping in the great crisis in this way. This Branch has at present samples of surgical dressings and material for making them. Those who WILL help with this work may get information and materi al by reporting to Mr. A. S. Gib bons who is the chairman. . He ' -alsprhas .literature-if -you-desire to read it. I hope that all officers r - - too, may be sufficiently inter ested. It is necessary for me to resign as secretary but I would like to of the Post Office and received get this work tefoi e the good peo some pay althoth extomdy i .e oi. t x. tpu small.
