Two More Houses Go All Out
For Red Cross Membership
The 1944 Red Cross membership drive gathered momenturr
yesterday when two more houses added to Tuesday’s four re
ported 100 per cent membership: Alpha Delta Pi with $48.50
and Alpha Omicron Pi, $43.80.
According to co-chairmen Dorothy Rasmussen and Mary K
Minor, nine more houses turned in the results of Wednesday's
v.win.^LlUilO . uauici ifiJ-.UW,
Hillcrest lodge, $20; Birch lodge,
$17.75; Hilyard house, $15; Alpha
Gamma Delta, $15; Casablanca,
$13; Chi Omega, $10; Kappa Alpha
Theta, $10; Highland house, $5.50.
The fact that the competition is
being judged on a percentage basis
was stressed by the chairmen. The
house, no matter how small, whose
members contribute the most
money individually will receive the
first prize cup awarded by the war
board. Second prize of records
totaling $2.50 will go to the next
house, also rated on a percentage
Dorothy Rasmussen reported
that today is the last day when
the Iiwamas will be stationed at
tables before the Side and in the
Co-op to receive contributions
there. All students not living on
the campus should avail themselves
of their last opportunity to sup
port the campus drive by making
their donations at the Kwama ta
bles today. For the convenience of
men living off the campus a box
has been placed in the YMCA
buildings for their contributions.
Emphasizing again the exten
siveness of the services rendered
by the Red Cross and the import
ance of generous support of this
war fund campaign, the officers of
the campus drive remind the stu
dents that in wartime the Red
Cross must do for the individual
soldier what his own family and
friends would do personally. “The
best way to reach your service
man with your help is through the
Red Cross. Wherever he is, the
Red Cross is at his side and your
contributions will give him the
food, medicine, cigarettes, blood
plasma, and morale building en
tertainment he asks for.”
It is not only the soldiers and
sailors on actual duty that receive
aid from the Red Cross, however.
When disaster strikes on the home
front the 3756 chapters of the or
ganization are ready to assist in
rescue and medical care and pro
vide food, shelter, clothing, and re
habilitation. Last year when scores
of families in Eugene’s neighbor
community. Springfield, were left
homeless and destitute after the
Willamette river flooded their dis
trict, the Red Cross was ready

time today for the little niceties

Schools, she commented, are un

ground upon which children could

scribed a school in Willow Run
