Salvation Army workers, ac
cording to Brigadier Albert E.
Baynton, in charge of Salvation
Army work In Oregon and south
ern Idaho, have been much haras
sed in recent months on accout of
impostors, who, representing
themselves as officials of the
Army, have been going about col
lecting funds in the name of the
organization. Having secured
somewhere the Army's uniform,
they were able to mislead the pub
lic. In order to 'protect the public
from further impostors of this
king the Salvation Army has sup
plied its accredited workers with
a printed solicitor's card, where
in is written the name of the
worker. This card also definitely
defines the territory in which said
worker is authorized to solicit for
funds and is signed by Albert E.
Baynton, the divisional command
er for Oregon and southern Idaho.
Brigadier Baynton respectfully
requests the public to call for soli
citor's card whenever and wher
ever approached by a Salvation
Army worker. Should someone
ask for money in the name of the
Army who is not supplied with a
card, the fact should be reported

Questioned about her health,
