ABERDEEN SOLVES PUZZLE
All "Drives" in Future to Be Han
dled Under Xew Plans.
ABERDEEN". Wash.. Jan. 26. (Spe
cial.) A fund of between $73,000 and
$100,000 is to be raised here this year
among manufacturing and business
men of the city upon a monthly sub
scription plan to be used in meeting
all drive assessments levied against
Aberdeen. This will make it po.-eible
when an assessment Is made to imme
diately write a check for the amount
requested and to forward It to the Na
tional headquarters. All future Red
Cros. Y. M. C. A.. Y. W. C. A. and
Knights of Columbus drives will be
handled in that way.
Under this plan, which has been in
dorsed by both the business and manu
facturing Interests of the city, the
workers will not be called upon to give
anything toward drives. In considera
tion of being relieved from this burden,
they are expected to subscribe 25 cents
a week or more toward the Aberdeen
Red Cross Chapter.
