Having outgrown Us quarters in the
Corbett building, the Portland Chapter,
American Bed Cross, will move, on or
about October 28, to new quarters on
the fifth floor of the Gasco building.
Sufficient space will there be available
for the headquarters of all the multi
farious Red Cross activities.
In place of a score of Red Cross tele
phone numbers representing different
Red Cross activities, there will be
Red Cross exchange with the Red Cross
shop, salvage bureau, workroom, can
teen, etc, all on the same exchange;
direct wires leading to the different
activities. A complete information
bureau regarding the Red Cross activ
ities both in Portland and abroad will
also be maintained.
The workroom will still be main
tained on the eighth floor of the Lip-
man-Wolfe building and the headquar-
ters of other activities where they now
are. but all the office detail and gen
eral Information will be centered In the
new offices in the Gasco building.

Government wants you to do your Holiday buying in October,
November and early December.
.The National Council of Defense has demanded that the business
interests of the Country shall curtail their Holiday activities;
and has asked them: .
Not to increase their working; force by reason of the Holiday;
Not to increase the number of Working: hours of their force
during the Christmas Season.
To spread the period for holiday purchases over the months of
October, November and December.
The General Secretary has it on the highest authority that it
was the intention of the National Council of Defense to discour
age Holiday business entirely until through the representations
of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States it was dem-.
onstrated to the satisfaction of even the highest in authority in'
the National Council of Defense that such a programme at this
time would mean irreparable damage to the business interests
of the Country, since in all lines merchandise had been bought
and delivered for Christmas uses.
The family connections and friends of men overseas will want .
to send remembrances to their loved ones in the American Army
abroad, and the efficacy and the need of photography in such
a movement was never as great.
