W. P. Walter, district secretary
for Idaho of the Y. M. 0. A., was
in town Saturday in the interests
of the county organization move,
ment of that grtnl Ixidy. It is said
of the county-wide Y work that it
is not an attempt to build up a new
organisation in rural communities.
It recognises the home, the school
and the church as fundamental and
it socks to supplement existing or
ganisations by devloping commun
ity leadership and looking after
the local groups which are carried
on under that leadership and yet
receive the oversight and encour
agement of the central organisa
tion. In the list of Umatilla county

THE RED CROSS
Christmas Roll Call
To the Citisensof Umatilla County:
The Christmas Roll Call of the
Red Cross oiens on the Kith of
DooemlH-r. This signifies renewal
of membership on thu art of those
already enrolled, and the joining of
the organisation by those not now
enjoying the privilege. This coun
ty has an approximate population
of 25,000. Half that number
ought to bo within the memWrship
of this mightiest of all world In
atrumentalitiwt of mercy. The cost
is one dollar. There are few Indeed
who cannot afford that sum to aid
in the stuH-udous labor to which a
prostrate Europe beckons America.
As chairman of the Roll Call
committee, I appeal now for open
pnekctbooks, for alert public senti
ment, for unselfish devotion, for
the Immediate setting aside of a
dollar, and for its dedication in the
name of rharity to humanity's
need. Europe. Asia, Africa all
are calling. The American Rod
Cms mut Ik the vehicle of re
smhiso. We shall hood the cry of
suffering not only among the na
tlons hitherto our allies, but among
the nstioa hilherto our foe.
Peace is imminent now, and tltvre
must be no line of dcmarkatlon.
In the shadow of suffering ovry
where throughout the globe; In the
name of companion, In the name
of Christian Charity, I apiwal to
each to lend a hand now fort ho
need of the nations Is greater than
ever licfore. Membership in the
Red Cross is a badge alike of ser
vice and of honor. Respectfully,
STEPHEN A. LOWELL.
