A comparative study of the dlvlsl mi
of the proportions of the Seiond ll"-l
Croaa fund for Malheur county be
tween the Ontario and Vale chapters
and the figures of the Third Liberty
lrfan drive for tho respective terri
tory ahow a a rather unequal division.
This dlsporportlonate division does
ot reflect In any way on the people
of the Vale district as a whole, hut It
does appear that those who are r I
epmi ihle for lite ml Ion of the V0
chapter are attempting to put an HI
Just share of the Imrili n on llM Ofl

Vale chapter would without a doubt
be the first to resent such in thin fori
that they are 100 per cent pat rim . I
aad willing to carry their share Of the
load, goea without saying.
In the Third Mberty I .mm drive tic
arldlctlon of the Oiiturlo iliapler
chapter were asked to raise tlH.o.n
and did ralae l77.fou or III per
cent, the communities In the Vale

ralao 1243,00 or 1G6 per ..in Thus
