To the generous citizens of Wasco
Our attention has been called to
the fact that on February 24th a
drive was to have been inaugerat-
ed for the purpose of raising with
in the county $3100 for the
Armenian and Syrian Relief Fund
In the various drives held in the
past Wasco county has been very
liberal and has over subscribed.
In the Second Red Cross War
Fund drive, Wasco county accept-
ed a quota of $25000, which was
proportionately a much larger
quota than assumed by other
counties. It was absolutely im
possible to plan to raise ust this
amount. The drive was over sub
scribed The $25000 was remitted
to New York and the balance was
kept as a fund in Wasco county.
We now propose to draw a draft
for $3100 on Geo. W. Johnson,
treasurer, and in favor of Mrs.
Lulu D. Crandall, county chair
man for Armenian and Syrian
llt'litf, aud thus obviate the neces
sity of another drive in Wasco
county at this time. We feel that
this should meet the approval of
all. If, however, any of the sub
scribers to this fund have good and
sudicient reasons why this should
not be done, we would ask that
they kindly make them known
through this paper at once.
