RECORD IN R. C. DRIVE
The final count on the Red Cross
Christmas roll call has Just been
Completed tor this county and totals
2,229 members with $2,248. This
Is a little better than 120 per cent
of the subscriptions taken In the
drive last year. Considering the
number of removals that the county
has suffered In tho past eight or ton
months this Is a record of which Jo
sephine county can be Justly proud.
The splendid success that has
marked this effort has not been duo
to the work of any one person or
committee, but because, from begin
ning to close each did his or her
part with a full feeling of responsi
bility, no tiiat to mentton-those who
proved splendidly capable would be
to name the whole personnel of
workers, solicitors, team captains,
and executive committee. Nor was
the liberality of tho Daily Courier In
giving Us space unreservedly to pub
licity work a small part In the suc
cess of the drive. Furthermore the
willing response ot those solicited
made the work a dollght throughout.
There seems to be a full under
standing In the mluds of the people
ot this county that the Red Cross
has been a faithful steward ot tho
resources that have been placed at
Its disposal and that Its work as an
organisation Is not completed until
thore Is no more a need for deeds
of mercy to be done.
