Homey County Chapter, American
. lied Cro, Is to tako nn active part
In community work uruIii. That, at
least. Is the plun contemplated by the
executive committee following a
meeting with n field representative
cf the Northwest Division held at tbo
rtr.ee of C halrmun CharlOH W. Kills
last Tuenluy niternoou.
Elisabeth V. Tandy, a field repres
dilative of the Hcd Gross, came to
Earns Inst Monday night In the in
(treat of tbo coming membership
drlro anil also to see what she could
to toward getting tbo local organic
ttlon Into active .work arain. It lit
lefii the opinion of lliomi who fbrniCr-
U- look an uctlvo part In connection
r(th returned soldlorM and their im
redlate families, disabled men or dij-l-cnduut
children. After dlscusahig
jho work of the orgunlzatlon with
JIm Tandy It was learned the act
ivity opened a wide field and gives
tho communities an opportunity to
(urnlxli relief In jnany ways and do
much good in civilian life.
The particular work of the organ
fettlon at present Is to look after the
returned coldlers, see to any unfln
thed biiKlness that may have boon
i.flected because of the alow process
of the government red tape, such aa
any back pay, delayed baggage, roll
eco due, etc., and to consult with
thtoi regarding their Insurance, point
out the advantages of converting It
to pennant and kindred matters of
penonnl Importance to them.
Another matter In connection with
Ike returned soldiers In to see if they
have had proper consideration In con
neetlon with Injuries; If they require
aid In future to sea that the govern
ment Is nmirised of condition and
live the necessary aid an provided In
ueh cnm. Tho 'dependents of auch
oldlers are nlso to be considered and
lrcn such uld as In necessary.
in addition to thin the Red Cross
as the right to extend its aid to civil
ian fumllie aund any distressing cir
cumttnnte that may arise. In some
counties In this stato they have a
Hed Cross nurse available always.
