The following is a copy of a letter that was prepared and sent out by Mrs. Geo. H. Gum ming, chairman of the local membership committee of the Red Cross, in the hope of awak ening a livelier interest in the work, both in the membership and the sewing classes at head quarters: “What is the Red Cross?” “To this question most people if not all could give a reply in a general way, but after setting forth certain facts 1 hope it may be so plain that even the youth of America may understand, at least the origin and principles of the American Red Cross. The order of the Red Cross nurses originated with a soldier, Ca millus de Lillis, when he was granted permission to use a red cross as a distinguishing mark for the society which he formed in 1584. By his work as a nurse and the reforms he wrought in caring for the sick, both in hos pitals and on the battlefield, he has been designated the patron of nurses. The present nation and inter national organization of the Red Cross is attributed to a young Swiss, Henri Dunant, who was a tourist in Italy during the Cri mean war, and was caught in the dreadful carnage of the battle of Selfernio. There he saw the aw ful suffering of the wounded, and organizing a band of volun teers, he personally supervised the care of the killed and wound ed. At that time he wrote urg ingly, “Would it not be possible to found and organize in all coun tries permanent societies of vol unteers, who in time of war would render succor to wounded without distinction of nationali ty?” The result of this appeal was the treaty of Geneva in 1864. The United States became a par ty to the treaty in 1882, and the American Red Cross was incor porated by an act of Congress.” “The American Red Cross is the only volunteer society now authorized by the U. S. govern ment to lend aid to its land and naval forces in time of war, and any other society desiring to ren der assistance can do so only through the Red Cross. Its ac counts are audited by the war department. Its officers |are the foremost men of the nation. Its work is given the highest recog nition by every country in the world. It relieves suffering in every land, not alone as a result of war, but when a calamity oc curs in any community.” “Let me urge you to call at the local Red Cross headquarters and learn in detail what the so ciety is doing. Do you know we are preparing to care for the wives and families of our soldier boys who are soon to be drafted into service? We urge you to join the Red Cross, and no true American will fail to do so. It is the least you can do, and it is a duty. Membership obligates one to nothing in the way of service; it is an expression of patriotism and desire to help suffering humanity. Our American boys are already in the trenches doing their duty, and the call comes from them to send surgical dress ings and hospital garments to care for the sick and wounded. Soon 500,000 of the noblest young men the world has ever seen will be at the front; many of them will die of neglect, their wounds will become infected, and their last moments will be spent in misery and filth unless we get to them the necessary supplies. The money that pays your membership fee may be the means of saving the life of your own boy, or that of your dearest friend. We urge you not to de lay. Honor Memory of Dee Moss.

W. B. Nash : Thos. N. Wills C. T. Woolfolk Committee. Where is all the patriotism in Arizona? The late legislature put in a lot of time debating, amending and recommitting a bill creating a state flag that resembles a guady streamer on a circus wagon, and now when the country is ablaze with war not a state flag is in evidence. Perhaps the flag was only intend ed to display on circus days. Our people should swell with pride whenever they think of the last legislature, and yet there are some who want the governor to assemble the aggregation to gether again in special session. Arizona Gets a Major. Out of a total of several thous and men enrolled in the officers’ training camp at the Presidio at San Francisco, only about 1500 of them were given commission, and only one man, Edward A. Sherman, a member of the Flag staff militia company, received a commission as a major. You can’t beat Arizona. Given a fair field and no favors, our young men and women are always among the winners.
