About $300. Still Unpaid on Drive
In this Community last Summer
When “ye editor” accepted the
chairmanship of the Estacada
lied Cross Auxiliary, tilling- the
vacancy left by the removal from
town of I. D. Wright, he had
supposed the office was one of
more honor than work, but has
been rudely awakened since.
The handling of the Christmas
Membership Campaign was an
easy matter with the aid of doz­
ens of willing solicitors and the
hearty unsolicited response from
the people—but now the auxili­
ary finds that about $300. still
remains unpaid on the pledges
made throughout this section
during last summer’s original
lied Cross Drive,
It is imperative that this money
be collected at once, as it was
due in full November 1st last.
Much of the biame tor this non­
payment is due the local organi­
zation, which made little or no
effort to collect same, although
many contributors paid theirs at
the Estacada State Sank
The remainder due comprises
pledges from * «bout thirty-five
people, in alifbunts ranging from
75c. to $50., some ot wnom have
paid a portion and a few have
overlooked any payment.
The Estacada Auxil ary asks
that these tie paid as soon as pos­
sible at the Estacada State Ban«,
so that all accounts may be set­
tled and this community be in
readiness for such future drives
as may turn up later.
A few delayed Christmas mem­
berships have b^en taken in at
the News office since the remit­
tance last week to county head­
quarters of $212.15, with a check
for $9 50 sent in Saturday and
about $7. received since.
